A word from Zodiac at Neiman Marcus – Downtown Dallas
For over 50 years, the Zodiac at Neiman Marcus in the Downtown Dallas location has been the place to dine in Dallas. Housed on the 6th floor of the flagship store, Stanley Marcus first conceived this restaurant as a convenience for out of town customers who were spending a full day shopping in the store.

Today, the Zodiac enjoys the same popularity for shoppers and non-shoppers alike. Enjoy all of the classics from our early days or find some new favorites. We welcome you with chicken broth and our signature popover with strawberry butter. Try a cocktail from our full bar or sip a glass of wine from our extensive winelist. Our lunch selections range from soups and salads to sandwiches. Or choose a beautifully plated entrée. Finish your meal with a housemade pastry and a hot cappuccino.

Diner Reviews
  • "It is especially difficult to find a restaurant that offers all the dining pluses of The Zodiac Room: consistently excellent food; creative drinks; attentive but not hovering waiters; and, especially, acoustics that tell you they are NOT attempting to get rid of you rapidly by providing an overwhelming din in your ears. This is actually one of the few upscale dining experiences in Dallas that allows you carry on a comfortable conversation while you are enjoying exquisite food.. I only wish The Zodiac Room were open for dinner."

  • "I recently had a business lunch here, and it was perfection. The food - from the delicious complimentary popovers and chicken broth to the dessert special (Carrot Cake - truly amazing), as well as the service was completely above par. I highly recommend Zodiac! I will certainly be back."

  • "Service excellent bur friendly. Food as usual very good both taste and presentation. Visually the room is very pleasing. Will go back."

  • "We get together 3-4 x year. We stay for hours. We asked to be seated over on the side and were. We stayed for 2-1/2 hours and were treated well by the waiter. He and his helpers were real gems. Food was excellent, service was impeccable. Free valet parking. Of course, we had to shop after we finished lunch:)"

  • "Lunch was fantastic. The pot roast my wife had was wonderful. My filet mignon was superlative. Dessert was beyond expectations. We'd dined at an old Dallas (and very popular with OpenTable users) steakhouse the night before and that $200 dinner was a huge disappointment while the $75 lunch at NM's Zodiac was the dining highlight of the weekend. Don't waste time, head for Neiman Marcus downtown, use the free valet parking, and get up the the Zodiac immediately."

  • "Delicious salads. I love that the nutrition information is on the menu. The chicken tortilla soup was wonderful. Service was great but not smothering. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The service was poor. We waited and waited just to be noticed. We had to ask a waiter to seat us. Then service continued to be poor. We asked twice for more butter and it didn't come."

  • "This was my first trip to the Zodiac Room, but my Mother's 3rd visit. Her 1st visit was in 1962/1963! Our meal was wonderful, and we had a great waiter. Wonderful iced tea and port wint creme brulee also. I look forward to my 2nd and 3rd trips."

  • "The Zodiac Room at Downtown Dallas Neiman Marcus is a Classic Dining experience. Superb service, quintessential menu items and Neiman Marcus elegance. The appetizers and daily specials are always a good choice. Nice selection of salads and sandwiches. The iced tea has black currant flavor - delightful taste. Always a lovely dining experience."

  • "Relaxed atmosphere, private table for 5 ladies to chat and enjoy the good food and conversation. Staff members were very attentive and food was very good."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Food and service was as expected - excellent. My guests and I would return as well as bringing others. The popover served in place of the usual bread or roll was a very nice change. Price was reasonable for the food and service."

  • "I have always loved going to eat at the Zodiac Room at the downtown Dallas Neiman-Marcus store. Good food and and an elegant atmosphere."

  • "Loved the location and ambience. Classy and comfortable, not too pricey, and food was good. Wish the service had been faster."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "The Zodiac was shining today, excellent service coupled with outstanding selections, and yet another special request was honored and graciously fulfilled. Sometimes just listening to fellow diners can be great entertainment. The pot roast is legendary and the presentation is outstanding The triple chocolate mousse is a work of art and is made the the Zodiac restaurant's kitchen while fresh berries and poppy seed dressing can't be duplicated anywhere else."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "This was a quick visit, as I informed the staff on arrival. My very specific requests were honored as always. I listed to other diners who seemed to be more challenging than necessary. The best rule of thumb to anyone dining, if you have questions, ask your server and most any reasonable request will be graciously honored."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Even with a familiar old favorite, the preparation lacked the usually fine-tuned presentation. It was late in the day, perhaps accounting for a least some of the difference. The usual staples of broth and popovers had to be requested, as did the poppy seed dressing for my fruit and berries."

  • "On her way home from business meetings, my husband's sister is able to spend a few days with us two to three times a year. I wanted to take her to an iconic place for lunch. I knew Nieman Marcus had restaurants within it's flagship store. I felt having lunch there would be memorable. I chose the Zodiac restaurant because of the picture of the elegant place setting of the table on it's website, the picture proved to be the right choice. As we walked to our table I knew I had made the right choice for lunch. The room was elegant and yet, comfortable. The service was outstanding, the martinis yummy, and the food was amazing. We have decided Zodiac will be, our place, and we will make it a tradition to have lunch there when ever she visits."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Good food and service. Limited healthy choices. Requested a quiet table when making the reservation which they acknowledged when we arrived. Yet, despite the restaurant being deserted during a very early weekday lunch, they seated us at a table right below a large party (they were up a step so that their coats were touching our chairs). Quickly corrected but a little awkward and I would expect better. Free valet nice. A little chilly in the dining room."

  • "I like to bring my clients to the Zodiac Room because they ALWAYS do a great job. The downtown Dallas location is the best one. I've dined at Northpark - and the food is not as good, nor is the service."

  • "After a month long wait during the holiday buffet, its great to have a favorite back again. This visit was quick and a short stop yielded the usual results. The service was efficient even during the peak noon hour."

  • "This is an iconic landmark. If you have never been or are just visiting, it is a fabulous place to go. The service is exceptional. I highly recommend it to everyone!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "IMO, no longer a destination, maybe because it was just after the holidays, Jan. 4.....nothing stellar about the food or ambiance. In years past was definitely a special occasion place. Now very ho-hum. Empty buffet tables in middle of room (?)"

  • "I took my mother out for a day of shopping for her birthday at the downtown Neiman Marcus and we had a lovely lunch at the Zodiac Room. The food was good and service and overall experience was very pleasant. It was the first time I had ever dined at this particular location and we were well taken care of. Our waiter even had her chosen dessert decorated with "Happy Birthday" which I very much appreciated!"

  • "We were celebrating a birthday and everything was perfect."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Even better with the holidays on approach, but during the period from Thanksgiving to New Years the Zodiac only serves a Holiday Buffet. Its a stunning assortment of NM specialties, but my preference is the regular menu. Regrettably, its not possible to order from the menu during this time. The windows are once again interactive, appealing to younger children, but missing the creative talent that made them a trademark statement from the store. There are other light dining options available, at the Expresso Bar downstairs and the cafe next door, recently updated."

  • "I organized a casual business lunch and was perfect! I was commented by European guests that I made a very good choice. Serving good food with great service and ambience. Price is very reasonable so extremely pleased!"

  • "The food and service is always great! It's a wonderful place to have a quick lunch or to dine with friends."

  • "Its great to be able to set your sights on visiting a restaurant with the complete anticipation that a standard will be met. Today, as always, the experience was a great one. From the specially ordered berries to the impeccable service and great variety of menu offerings the Zodiac is always ready to meet any needs. Even with a small party being hosted in another area of the spacious dining room, even the small details were handled with care."

  • "Our Texas v OU weekend ALWAYS begins with a girls lunch (ok, sometimes we let the boys join us) at Zodiac. This year was no exception and as always we had a wonderful lunch with great friends."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "While its obvious an addition to my order was misunderstood as a modification. It was late in the afternoon after an apparent rush, and perhaps I was not specific enough. Everything was first class, as usual. Be sure to ask about the specials they are featuring, including desserts."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "This visit was no exception. Even arriving at the last moment, everything was excellent. The ladies seated at an ajacent table had a special strawberry featured dessert that looked devine. Service was polished without being intrusive."
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "Fantastic lunch, unfortunately I arrived late in the day, and missed the opportunity to savor the experience. I would recommend the Zodiac to anyone who enjoys the traditions that the Zodiac embraces. Be sure to check the specials which change at least a couple of times a week, if not daily. Pot roast, a mainstay and longtime favorite is outstanding. Be sure to try the fresth fruit and poppy seed dressing."
