Diner Reviews
  • "If you are on WW, this is the place to have lunch. Easy to stay on plan. Menu has calorie count.. Would recommend the grilled shrimp salad. Service wonderful, food consistantly good. Great place to meet for lunch and then do a little shopping."

  • "The food is good not wonderful. I ordered the trio salad. The lobster salad was so good, the egg salad was ok. The chicken salad was poor. This is my third time at the Neimans Palo Alto location. The San Francisco location is superb and Walnut Creek is also very good. But three times I am sorry but must say just ok. Then my granddaughter age 6 ordered the spaghetti and it was terrible. She drank 5 cups of their consume. Popovers are delicious. I will return but only because for the Shopping Plaza, It is still the best of several choices. The service is so slow."

  • "The shrimp salad was superb. The deserts were fantastic especially the lemon cake. But the best part of the meal was the fresh baked bread with strawberry butter."

  • "Very pleasant lunch prior to doing my Chirstmas shopping. I always love the consomme and popover. Happily the strawberry butter wasn't a frozen, unspreadable lump as it was on my visit to the SF NM Rotunda last month. I had the turkey club which was very satisfying, followed by the warm chocolate bread pudding with a bourbon glaze. All in all, a really nice lunch which prepared me for an equally enjoyable shopping experience. Well done, Neiman Marcus!!"

  • "The Cafe at NM does a lovely and delicious lunch with a flair that makes it nice for a special occasion. Tasty food, nice variety of options, calorie counts so if on a diet one knows what the calories are. LOVE the popovers as a starter. Definitely recommend."

  • "The service is very poor.I asked for small plates, she never bring it, She is not friendly. The food is okay, with the price they charged is not worthy."

  • "to a very ordinary chicken pesto foccacia sandwich lunch. Half a sandwich for $14.50 is a bit pricey, so I hoped every bite would be scrumptious. Not so, and the corners of the faccacia were dry. But service was great, and the popovers and consume and truck show models that drifted by made it a pleasant ladies out. BTW, my friends enjoyed their grilled cheese."
