  • A favorite restaurant on a less than perfect visit
    Jannie
    Dined on 11/17/2014
    Over the years, I have been a Zodiac Room guest dozens of times. Their popovers are a family favorite, and their Arnold Palmers are perfect. Service is attentive, it is generally a quiet and central location to meet people for lunch (hours 11-3 only), the menu contains enough variety to satisfy even the pickiest eaters, and presentation is always charming. All of the above were true when my daughter and I met there yesterday for lunch. The disappointing aspect of this particular visit was the quality of the food we ordered. My daughter ordered a filet mignon and fresh mozzarella salad - the filet was overcooked, tough, looked strange, and, after a bite or two, she slid it under some lettuce instead of eating the rest of the generous portion. The greens and mozzarella were fine. My appetizer of assorted deviled eggs looked beautiful on the plate, was also a very large portion, and had some interesting flavors (truffles, salmon and traditional). There were bits of crunchiness through them, which we identified as egg shells, but our server claimed was 'sea salt'. Finally, my Tuscan chicken/fresh mozzarella sandwich also proved to be inedible, mainly because the chicken was thin, tough and stringy. Altogether, an unfortunate visit food-wise. I will absolutely be back! I will just stick to the old favorites - soups, signature chicken and tuna salads, and an occasional simple pasta - rather than venturing into 'creative' territory.

    I choose to go to the Zodiac to celebrate my birthday with a friend. I had not been there for many years and thought it would be fun to lunch with a girlfriend there. I had fond memories of the popovers, chicken broth, and chicken salad. Well, I would say "out with the old and in with the new!". They have updated their menu and published a cookbook to showcase some of their new items. I still love the idea of starting with popovers and broth, but the popovers were dry and the broth tasted like it came from a can. I had a kale veggie salad with the renowned chicken salad as a side. My friend had the grilled shrimp salad. The kale salad was excellent. The chicken salad was very bland and in fact below par for 2014. It's essentially chicken with mayonnaise, no veggies, grapes, herbs, spices. The shrimp salad was good but not outstanding. The service was good.

    I love food - and definitely don't mind paying for it but, while brunch here was good...I'm not sure it was $20+ salad good. Its a nice spot for the ladies lunch....and I do like the addition of nutritional content for the menu.

    I met my mother for lunch here. It was quiet, which is nice. The popovers were delicious, as they always are. I was a little disappointed in the atmosphere - it didn't feel quite as polished as I had been expecting. Our waitress was amiable, and the food came out in good time and was very tasty. I would visit again, but I won't feel like obligated to dress as nicely again. I wouldn't wear ripped jeans and a t-shirt, but some dark tailored jeans or slacks and a nice top will do fine.

    We went for a special girls day out lunch. The wine list & specialty drinks were superb. My guest had the crab bisque & it was outstanding. The Chicken Salad was very disappointing. Honestly a supermarket deli would have something better. Very plain & forgettable. There was a group there for a bridal shower & they were quite loud. The waiter did apologize & it certainly was out of his control. Overall the food was overpriced for the quality & portions. I would certainly try them again. The service was great.

    The only disappointing thing about my lunch at Zodiac is that they no longer offer the Salad Trio - chicken, shrimp, and a green salad. However, the rest of the menu is great. This is a great place for lunch, and to talk privately.

    Our experience at the Zodiac room in Neiman Marcus was outstanding as usual. The food is delicious and our server was wonderful. Actually, I requested this server as he is always so appropriate and attentive!!! This is our favorite place to "lunch". We have friends coming in town early April and we plan on taking them to the Zodiac room at Neiman Marcus for lunch!! Keep up the good work!!

    This was my first visit and the choice of my sister in law. For my lunch, I chose the medley with chicken salad. The beer cheese soup was delicious, the chicken salad bland, the fruit portion skimpy. The complimentary popovers were appreciated because otherwise, I would have left hungry. My friend and I had a long, leisurely lunch interrupted 12-15 times by two models. They were friendly, nice, young women but stopping at our table to talk with us became extremely annoying "here they come again!" I don't plan to return.

    We took my mom and her friend for Valentines lunch. This is a great place to take a senior on an icy day since parking is underground. I had the mushroom ravioli this time and it was lovely. terrific wine sauce! The elderly ladies were delighted and there was no wait due to Open Table. Nathan, the host, is a gem! He knows how to take care of you and deal with people graciously. Our server was also excellent. You can't go wrong booking a lunch at The Zodiac Room. Everything is super fresh and the chef is creative not just assembling pre-bagged restaurant supply items. Very feminine atmosphere where you can have a conversation without music.

    My daughter and I wanted to have a light brunch and explore some of Jo Malone's scents at Neiman Marcus on a dreary Sunday afternoon in February. We do not generally hang out at malls and shopping at Neimans is not in our everyday budget. But, I have often loved meeting friends or going to showers at the Zodiac Room. It's a soft environment and there is one item that I cannot find anywhere else.....POPOVERS!! Those from the Zodiac Room are perfection! The raspberry butter is not too sweet and it never matters to me what else I eat! Our server was charming and knew how to make our brunch totally delightful. We had the crab cakes eggs Benedict and it was perfect. The new Spring menu is about to blossom, so we will surely go again.

    Service was friendly and attentive. I had best steak sandwich ever. I'll go back. However, I was miffed at the way we were treated when we arrived. No hostess in view. It was several minutes of awkward standing around waiting for something to happen, and no recognition of the fact that we had a reservation. Hostess offered to take our coats after we got to the table. A better reception area would take care of these problems.

    Our waiter Tom was a joke. We asked for champagne cocktail and was told out of pomm syrup. Ten minutes later, we saw another waiter delivering a champagne cocktail to another table. When we asked our waiter about it, he lied and told us some lame excuse which we actually caught him in. Loved the food, ambience, and general atmosphere but the service was a joke. Whatever our waiter Tom was asked to do, he screwed it up. Normally we are very patient patrons but my partners mother came in town for Xmas and we went to Zodiac for our annual Xmas eve lunch and were very, very, very disappointed...don't know if we will ever return!

    The Zodiac is a classic. The popovers and strawberry butter are always served hot, the salads are innovative and fresh. There is enough updated fare for the menu to be "current" but it is balanced with tried and true items for those of us who lunched here with our mothers and grandmothers remember and loved. There are entrees that are heartier in case you are wanting something a bit more satisfying. The drinks are excellent, and the dessert selection is yummy.

    Easy to make and confirm reservation. Friendly staff. Great service. The best part , truffle chicken pot pie. We always think buillion and popovers make the meal special. This trip was a holiday lunch, the atmosphere was bland compared to all the customers dressed in red and white, but the special Rudolph cocktail helped. I like attention to detail and we were so full dessert was out of he question but a small signature dessert would have left me leave happier the chocolate help fill that void. Thanks for a lovely lunch. See you soon.
