  • Disappointing Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    I reserved a table for a group of 8 coming into town for a day of shopping and I had been to NM Cafe in December of last year and had a good experience. First off, we had to wait 20minutes from the time the server came by to take our drink orders to get a glass of water and our cocktails. I had to ask other waitstaff twice before our water came to the table. The service from our waiter was horrible. We were there for an hour and a half and most of that was waiting for service. Very disappointed in the experience. The food was good, but won't be back to Neiman Marcus Cafe at all for lunch.

    I took a group of girls on a 3 hour drive to Atlanta for a birthday celebration / shopping day. I made a reservation for us for lunch at Neiman Marcus because in the past it had been a special and delicious and lovely restaurant. It is not what is used to be. so sad, service was terrible and rude, food was fair at best and lunch was a total disappointment. I will not go back. fast food in the food court would have been better.

    I took my granddaughters to lunch, they love Neimans. They had not been in a very long time!!! Not only was the restaurant cold, but the service was slow. Our drinks were not refilled in a timely fashion, as well as we waited for lunch over a reasonable wait period. People who arrived after our arrival received their food first. Very sketchy. I have been there numerous times and it hasn't been like this.

    The food was just ok and not exactly cooked as ordered. The presentation was nice but the waiter either didn't listen or just chose to not honor the two requests I made. However the reduction sauce on the dish was nice but was disappointed. The salad we ordered with it was excellent.

    The food was delicious but the hostess and waitstaff were absolutely useless and unfriendly. Unattentive does not begin to describe the waitress - she even seemed bothered by us asking for the check! NOT IMPRESSED.

    Until recently I didn't even realize that Neiman Marcus even had a café. I took the opportunity to try the place. Upon arrival I was promptly seated and a server came out a few moments later. He made sure I was properly situated and allowed me to take the time with my order while offering some recommendations. Based on the recommendations I had the Grilled Shrimp Salad along with a nice glass of Champagne. The shrimp was large, juicy and succulent, something I don't always associate with large shrimp. Excellent choices that I highly recommend. Everyone was very attentive but never made me feel rushed. I highly recommend this to anyone who wishes for a pleasant dining experience while shopping at Lenox Mall or, like I did, a special trip.

  • She-crab soup a must!!

    I always ordered the She-crab soup when I came here. Food is always fresh. It is a nice and quiet place to have lunch without the noise in the mall. My only complaint is the creme brûlée in recent times been rather odd. The taste is a little off. Kids love the pasta there too. Not to mention the yummy strawberry whipped butter and the freshly made popovers.

    Have stopped by the NM Cafe for years when visiting Atlanta or on our way to NC. My mother-in-law introduced me to lunch at NM when I first got married. We then passed the tradition down to our kids who are grown now but remember having popovers at NM after a long drive from Tampa.

    Really disappointing. NM cafe seems to have gone seriously downhill. The service was inattentive and the food was sub-standard. The she-crab soup was still good, but the salads and sandwiches were very poor.

    What happened?!? The NM Cafe used to be one of my favorite dining spots when shopping at Lenox Square. The she-crab soup is absolutely the best in town, the shrimp salad was delish (minus the garbanzo beans) and the roasted chicken was heavenly. However, my recent dining experience was so disappointing. The menu obviously had changed...and not for the better. The peach tea was weak (but the lemonade was awesome), but most distressingly, the shrimp salad had undergone a change for the worse. The "green goddess" dressing was flavorless and the salad overall was a big disappointment. In addition to the mediocre food, not Neiman's has models lurking around your table to model new fashion. Just weird!

    the ambience is a little sterile, but the menu is great. Really creative salad combinations. Everything has calorie or health info. And they still offer the chicken broth and popovers that I remember as a child!

    When you walk into NM Cafe, you forget a) that you are in a "store restaurant" and b) that you are in a mall. The restaurant is a little oasis in Lenox Mall and is wonderful for lunch (they are only open from 11am-3:30pm). Great menu - both for those want just a quick sandwich/soup lunch and for those who want a full meal. Good service, good food and a nice (though, purposefully limited) bar menu with both wine and cocktails. I am giving this an Outstanding for Ambiance because it's just a treasure of an oasis. Note: You are served a cup of broth (in a small, espresso-like cup) and a popover with strawberry butter when you get there. It's wonderful! It's something that Neiman restaurants do and it sets the stage for a lovely lun
