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
  • "Restaurant was almost too quiet. Went for a business lunch and felt that if you spoke above a whisper, you'd be interrupting everyone else's lunch."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The service and menu offerings are generally always excellent. Today was no exception, even with large parties in the room everything was handled as if it was just a normal day. I opted for lighter fare today which was excellent."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Really enjoyed a "memory lane" lunch with my Mother and Sister! Food and service were excellent. We had several special lunches at the Zodiac growing up in Dallas, and it is so fun to return and have the same chicken bouillon, and popovers with strawberry butter that they have had for years! I ordered the chicken salad with mandarin orange salad; the waiter said this item had been on the menu for 60 years! Kind of fun! New menu items are always being added. The scallops that my sister ordered were fabulous. My mother tries to eat "gluten-free", and there were many items designated on the main menu that are gluten free. A special treat for her was the gluten-free dessert trio! It was amazing!"

  • "Nice for special occasion. A little pricy but fun to go early and walk through store."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Today's offering included an unusual version of the Reuben, with Steak and Shiitake mushrooms and melted cheese service with slaw and fried potatoes. This was more than ample especially when ordered with an order of fresh berries. There was a group nearby that seemed to share half of everything on the menu, something I would never think of doing here. The prices are affordable enough that sharing seemed to be their idea of a cheap way out."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Always reliable, this visit was good as always. A nice sized portion with one of my favorites. Be sure to check out the daily specials on a separate menu. Its hard to go wrong with any selections, but some are outstanding. My personal favorites include the amazing Pot Roast and the Salmon entree, its also available in a salad."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "There's not much to be said - it's essentially the same Zodiac menu as all their other restaurants, but it is in the legendary 50+ year old flagship restaurant. Great service, great atmosphere, classic offerings. Need to go if you haven't and go back if it's been a while!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • " Great service for our group of six. Everyone loved the entrees they chose; the food was nicely presented and very tasty. The one who got the steak filet thought it was perfectly cooked."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I love going to the The Zodiak Room!! There are no "It was good except---" meals. The consistency of the quality; the attention to detail; the professionalism of the waiters; the usual surprise of the dish & drink du jour; and the understated luxury of the dining room are all part of the ease of dining. I just wish they would stay open for dinners!!! The food is prepared with gentle respect & dishes seem to always come out as they should whether it is one of the entrée salads, or a sandwich, or that amazing pot roast or the orange soufflé!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The selection today was a variation of an item I had recently. The salmon was well-prepared, but not as hot as I would prefer. It seems this is a problem in many establishments, even when a request is made to ensure the item(s) are piping hot. The whole experience was great, and the room seemed to have a nice crowd for a mid-day lunch."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "What a lovely lunch! Greeted warmly by manager and seated immediately. Consomme and biscuit served promptly. Ordered a wonderful Southwest Chicken Cobb, which was fabulous, with flavored iced tea. Jay Strongwater's work was showcased in the middle of the restaurant. Our server, Lucio, was flawless, as always! Another server, Roberto, came to the table to say hello. All in all, a wonderful lunch. One simply can't go wrong with the Zodiac!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Today, there were multiple of groups at the restaurant, but being well staffed and obviously attuned to the needs of regular customers and guests alike. Today, the choice was difficult between Salmon and the Pot Roast. Its hard to imagine anyone who would not like this selection. It was the recipe that Was a favorite of Stanley Marcus. Its one of the selections that is worth fighting for when menu changes are contemplated. Fresh vegetables were the perfect compliment for this excellent dish. The berries and other assorted items are outstanding."

    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Zodiac is always up to the challenge, if its a quick lunch, or a relaxing one with friends, the selections and specials are always excellent. Today I tried the special salmon with risotto, white beans, carrots and asparagus that was cooked to perfection, and beautifully presented. The fresh berries and poppy-seed dressing are outstanding for a side dish or dessert. Monkey bread is often available during the week by special request, but the standby of popovers and strawberry butter (or preserves) can't be beaten."

  • "I took out of town guests to the Zodiac Room based on a review I read in D Magazine. The whole experience was amazing. We were so impressed with the beauty of the experience...from the decor all the way down to the Ladies Lounge! The popovers were over the top as was the delicious cup of broth we were served as soon as we were seated. If you are in Dallas and do not take advantage of this most delightful experience...shame on you!"

  • "I took my admin out to linch to recognize Administrative Professionals Day. We had a nice lunch, great service. Not an "every day" lunch place, as it's higher priced. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "It is always so nice to have lunch at the Zodiac Room. The service is impeccable, and the food is reliably very good. The atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable -- a much needed break for those of us working downtown or nearby. Try the brunch for special occasions; you will not be disappointed in the variety or quality of foods offered or service. Shopping afterwards is a must."

  • "It was just what I expected from a Neiman Marcus entity: good service, healthy entrees, and a nice setting."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Service excellent bur friendly. Food as usual very good both taste and presentation. Visually the room is very pleasing. Will go back."

  • "Today, I opted for the traditional NM pot roast, which was excellent. The presentation was outstanding. "
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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:)"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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."

  • "Service was very good, its great to be able to park and head upstairs for a consistently reliable experience. Today was no exception. The staff is great at anticipating needs."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
