We had a late seating and felt rushed. We were told a few times we couldn’t get something because they had out it away already. The chicken Paillard was very dry. Three of my guests ordered it and it was so dry that none of them ate it. Pot Roast and the crab cake did not disappoint- really high praise. Overall, we love the experience but wanted to give you feedback

We have been coming to the Zodiac for over 20 years for special family meals, so traditions like the popovers and consommé are important to us- we’re so glad those are still part of the experience. We missed the chicken-liver pate this year, and the latkes were a bit different, but the prime rib and the lamb chops were perfect, and the service was outstanding. We did miss the older dessert sampler tray, which has always been a highlight over the years, but perhaps next year, after we get through the pandemic, that will return.
Thank you for a lovely meal!

Other than missing two years, we’ve gone to Zodiac Rm’s Christmas Eve buffet every year since 2000. A beautifully enhanced room, impeccable service and a huge variety of dishes, including truffled mac n cheese, carved primed rib and lamb chops. Start with a glass of champagne, move onto a reasonably priced bottle of wine and enjoy the experience. Can’t wait until 2022!

Strange seeing fewer tables and much of the new decor was not appealing. The food was good and the service was superb, much to Mr Stanley’s liking. All in all, as an annual event at Christmas time, the Zodiac is my family’s favorite tradition.

Our waitress was overwhelmed with several tables who were all seated at the same time, so we had to wait when we needed more water or tea or dessert. It wasn’t her fault, but I expect better service at the Zodiac Room.

We do the holiday brunch annually & always love it but the desserts are a HUGE disappointment. Three cakes & each was drier than the last. Ridiculous for a $50 brunch! Service is always lovely tho.

I love the tradition of Christmas Luncheon at the Zodiac Room. The food is awesome and this year I especially loved the Stanley Marcus Pot Roast. FABULOUS! Lamb chops were cooked how I like them. Smoked Salmon is also wonderful. The service is always welcoming and professional. Cocktails are perfect too!!

The beef at the carving station was dry and covering in aju didn't help. They must be short staffed because our waitress came to pour water when we sat down and didn't have enough for all the glasses and didn't return to fill it until we went to the hostess station and asked for help. Ordered our cocktail and had to wait over 15 minutes for it. We have attended this buffet for over 12 years at Christmas time and sad to say this didn't light us up with Christmas joy. Restaurant was not even halfway filled.

The Holiday Buffet has been our tradition for years
How things have changed!
The menu was the same but certainly not up to past standards!
What was most shocking was the service!
Raul was our server and was outright rude and lacked any attention to service
I know when I make reservations for next year I certainly will make sure that Raul is not our server!

The buffet has a lot of variety. Every dish was totally awesome! Wait staff is great, too. The dessert was the best! I love this old building, too. It is the flagship store for Neimans. I used to bring my children and then one grand child here for Christmas lunch. It is a great tradition to start.

Have been dining at the Zodiac Room Downtown since the 1960's. The Holiday Brunch is always special. The staff was gracious and very attentive. The buffet had a large variety of food. The holiday brunch offers a list of festive holiday alcoholic beverages. A definite dining experience. But you have to get your reservations early (like October!) for December dining.

Would have been nice to have been told that Holiday Buffet was the only option, especially post-COVID, which was not the case when I made the reservation. Buffet food was typical high quality of NM.
