    How can you not love a restaurant that shines in both quality of food and level of service? Today's soup (pasta fagioli) was served a tad hot with some of the beans not yet cooked thoroughly, but still delicious. The Croque Madame was superb. All in all, a wonderful meal, as usual.

    Open Table does not know what they are doing. I made reservations for Sunday, September 7, at NM Café at Neiman Marcus - Northpark thru Open Table. Upon arrival there was a sign that NM CAFE IS CLOSED ON SUNDAYS!!! You need to get your act together. Although we didn't get to eat at the restaurant, I'm giving them an excellent review based upon the gracious concern of Assistant General Manager, Warren Wetzel.

    My daughter and I had a nice lunch together on the first day of her children's schoolyear. The customary demitasse cup of hot chicken bouillon and popover with strawberry butter always make a good beginning. My grilled shrimp salad had four huge shrimp, slices of avocado, etc. on crisp greens with the dressing on the side. Perfect! The Neiman Marcus dining rooms always have good food and service in nice surroundings.

    I have never been disappointed when dining at the NM Café, and today was no different. We had the Chicken Milanese w/ couscous and it was delicious. Management and servers were attentive and so very kind; not just to us, but to everyone. Run, don't walk, to NM Café as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed!

    I was a little disappointed. A fairly long wait for menus and our orders. We had to ask three times for sweetener for the tea. My salad came without any dressing so I used some of my companions' dressing. Would have to think a while before coming back here considering your price--Little Mermaid has better service.

    What a lovely lunch we had today at NM Café. Service was outstanding. Food is always lovely. However, today we tried the Spring Vegetable soup, and we both commented that it was probably the best soup we had ever had. Well done. We'll be back for the soup, if you'll please keep it on the menu!

    Service wasn't bad until it got busy, then suffered rather a lot right at the end of our lunch. Took 10 minutes to flag down our waitress for the ticket and another 5 for her to pick up the payment. Food was outstanding, desert was fantastic. It appeared the restaurant Manager could have easily helped out wait-staff seeing how crowded it was but he just stood around looking important when it got the busiest (most crowded). Also, one group (20 women) was very noisy, making it almost impossible to hear our waitress talk to us and ruining atmosphere of a good cafe until they received their order. A group that large strung out table-end-to-end should have been in a separate room.

    Beyond the wonderful food, friendly and efficient service, and classy ambiance, let me tell you what NM Café has to offer its patrons: today, I laid my wallet/checkbook on an empty chair at the table and forgot to pick it up as we were leaving. We had already walked out of the restaurant and about to descend to the second floor (via an escalator) when our wonderful hostess/manager came RUNNING to us with my wallet in her hand. My problem became HER problem, and she was determined to correct the problem as quickly as possible. It is this type of outstanding service that we have received, time and time again, that ensures we will forever be faithful patrons of this fine dining establishment! Thanks, NM Café!

    Neiman Marcus is a Dallas tradition of quality and outstanding customer service. The NM Café at Northpark mall is no exception. From management to the wait staff to the hostess, one is treated like royalty from the minute they arrive. The food was wonderful, too, but you'll return for the outstanding service! Well done.

    The woman serving our table greeted us as soon as we were seated with a lovely cup of chicken broth, complemented by a tiny, tasty biscuit. Then my guest and I celebrated the occasion with a wonderfully flavored cocktail. All lovely, so far. We then received the delicious warm popper rolls that are "signature" with lunch at Neiman's. Disappointment came when the salad arrived; instead of freshly baked turkey there were cubes of what looked like canned meat.

    Reservations are a must at NM Cafe, especially at Christmas. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and orginally wanted to go to the Zodiac Room in downtown Dallas, but they were unable to accommodate us. Our server was very nice and took good care of us. She noticed right away I had a gift and asked if it was a birthday celebration. The menu had many selections . We ordered two glasses of champagne, which arrived warm. My friend said she would expect Neimen's to serve ice cold champagne. That was a turn off for me as well. The popovers and broth were excellent. After our meal our server brought out a wonderful and generous meringue slice with a lighted candle. I really appreciated that and so did the birthday girl.

    Realizing that the Zodiac is now the NM Café, I still have to compare since I'm an old NM customer. I appreciate newness and freshness and know that things change. But what was most disappointing was paying $82 for a very marginal meal. My sister and her daughter joined me on Friday the 13th for lunch. The primary issue was the food. Monkey bread was cold and hard, coffee old and lukewarm, side salad on my order had little or no dressing, same case for my sister's meal. Crab salad was tasteless. Crab sliders were passable.The only bright spot was the coconut pie. Our waiter was earnest and pleasant, but seemed overrun with duties. I think we expected at least a Zodiac experience that was nowhere to be found.

    We found it very noisy - could hardly hear each other talk. Our service was excellent - however when the checks arrived for the 6 of us (separate checks) the gratuity was already added. My fault I didn't notice - so I added another tip (a good one) and she didn't say anything. I realize it was my fault for not noticing, but left me with a feeling I didn't like. Learned a lesson here. Everyone liked their food.

    (A little disclaimer: this is the SECOND review I've written for this luncheon. Opentable needs to get this corrected, as this is not the first time it's happened. VERY frustrating!). The lunch at NM Café was perfect in every way for a party of six. The food was outstanding; service was impeccable; and we were treated like members of the family from beginning to end. Don't hesitate to lunch here during holiday shopping. You won't be disappointed!

The service is personal and warm and the food is consistently delicious. We can visit without rushing and feel special while we are there. I highly recommend this Neimans restaurant.
