The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus - San Francisco
Fantastic for lunch, tea,Fantastic for lunch, tea, or very early dinner. I loved the lobster club sandwich and popovers. The restaurant was very accomodating in making the filet mignon plate gluten-free for my husband by modifying the salad. Make reservations if you come for lunch. Excellent service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDining Gem in Neiman MarcusWe went for a ladies lunch and shopping day. Dining at the Rotunda was a fantastic start to our day. The food and service was excellent which all in all made a memorable experience. Some in our group had never dined there but vowed to again in the near future.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for special meals,Excellent for special meals, celebrations, or eating alone on a day of shopping. Excellent menu and all items are fresh and beautifully prepared and served. Always top service.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at the Rotunda Neiman MarcusAlways a special treat. Excellent menu and delicious meals. Great service and beautiful ambiance.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNice view in San FranciscoI have lived in the Bay for a long time and this was my first visit to the Rotunda at Neiman Marcus. We had the afternoon tea there and the food was AMAZING. I actually like the bread before the main dishes the most.. I had two of them. Also, our waiter mixed up our order and he upgraded us to the most expensive tea set (with the more expensive champagne)! The service was great and I would come back! We also made our reservation requesting the window tables and was honored by the restaurant. The view was so nice!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved lunch at The RotundaI was in town with my boss and we lunched there after walking through the beautiful store and capped the experience off with lunch under the gorgeous dome. Next time I am there, I will definitely go back!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTea at 2:30We had come an hour too early for high tea, but stayed for lunch, which was delicious. The lobster bisque was wonderfully creamy and full of lobster, and the lobster club sandwich was tasty. I would have given the service 5 stars (our server was absolutely knowledgeable and charming); but, although I thoroughly enjoyed the lobster club sandwich, it was not the sandwich I had ordered. I took a bite, decided to keep it, and simply mentioned the mistake to the server when he stopped by to see how things were. As a result, when we got the bill we discovered that the server had taken it upon himself to completely delete any mention of the sandwich. Classy!
It's a classy place! We'll definitely return (after 2:30!) someday to try their high tea.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI had visitors from the UKI had visitors from the UK and wanted to take them somewhere special. Neiman Marcus scores on all levels, not only is it a beautiful shop, the restaurant is so elegant, we sat over looking Union Square on a beautiful sunny day eating lobster club sandwiches and drinking champagne, can life get any better.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant and delightful!This is a fabulous place for afternoon tea, lunch or just having champagne. Classic experience for locals and a must-see for visitors.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMclassyit is very convenient and service is good....nice selection of food and always loved the complimentary sip of broth5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant setting and pricesBeautiful space - we prefer window table overlooking Union Square. Booths look comfy, but we went there for the view. Very elegant setting, with fabulous stained glass ceiling. Popovers, brought with every meal (I think), are a treat. The rest of the food, my ahi salad and my husbands cesar (large) and burger were good, but not exceptional. Lunch came to about $120 - It's very expensive, but the setting made it special. Tea service is another way to enjoy create a lovely (and maybe less expensive) moment there.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster club the best. SpecialLobster club the best. Special dessert of the day was over the top. . .chocolate.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional dining experience.The Rotunda never disappoints. Service was flawless. Food was exceptional. Always a fantastic experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably delishAnother wonderful lunch at the Rotunda. The menu has some new items, and I like the separate "specials" menu which includes appetizer, entree and dessert, as well as a special cocktail. The salads are excellent; also love the caramel pudding dessert! If you want a glass of Rose, try the Whispering Angel. I know everyone loves the view window tables, but I prefer the cozy booths. Our server (young lady with blond ponytail) is always incredibly gracious.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was just averageThe food was just average and the prices were higher than ordinary for salads, sandwiches and lunch entrees.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had been to the Rotunda,We had been to the Rotunda, so we knew what to expect. We don't get to The City often because we are seniors, but we do go when we want to go to the theater. We had planned to see "Jersey Boys," and it was playing fairly near the Rotunda, so it made for a lovely day. Great lunch - we each had the lobster club - and great musical, plus lovely weather, and before the tourist season. BART was easy with very little wait and since we had our reservation for lunch, everything flowed perfectly
Moraga CA4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the round shape ofI love the round shape of the restaurant and the lighting it has from the windows and huge stained glass ceiling. I think the shape lends itself to nice soft acoustics, not loud even with all the tables filled. Shared the wedge salad and it was great, with the bacon, corn blue cheese crumbles and green goddess dressing all flavors complimented each other and of course the heirloom tomatoes were like icing on the cake. Artichoke raviolis were a foodies mouth's delight, they melt in your mouth. The filet medalions were also very tasty, cooked perfectly to my specific order and the accompanying salad was very nice as well. We did not have time for dessert, but the popovers they serve in place of bread are to die for!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu has shifted intoThe menu has shifted into the spring mode and there are many new selections - all very enticing.

Really elegant, well located (opposite a key destination, in this case, Union Square) and expensive. It's a "Let's try it" kind of place. Well, we loved Rotunda and recommend it. We each had a different kind of salmon salad plus coffee.
Go for something special. But be ready for high prices. (Our lunch for three, with tip, tilted over $100.00!)4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Rotunda is simply exquisite!The Rotunda is simply exquisite!
