Stopped for lunch on a trip to the mall and was surprised to find a brunch menu in addition the the regular menu. Had the crab eggs benidict with a split of champagne. Was very tastey with real lump crab.
My eggs could have been a bit softer and grits hotter but the service made up for these two small issues.
Gloria was excellent and provided service above expectation. Thanks Gloria!

I have gone to many Neiman Marcus cafes and this one too in the past. This particular trip was not so great. The Neiman Marcus cafe I remember visiting was more luxurious and had a better ambiance. This time, the service was poor, the waiters acted as though they were waiting on tables at a cheap Chinese buffet. The whole sense of class and sophistication has disappeared. The dishes I was served on were not very clean. When the waiter would bring me anything, be it a drink or food, he would tower over me and my food to set it down. When bringing me my drink, the waiter shouldn’t stick his arm in front of my face and across my food to set it on the table. These are waiters at a high end cafe. But they didn’t know basic table manners. It was gross and unprofessional. I did enjoy the food itself. The chef must be the same. I thought the popovers were a little overdone, but that’s not a big deal. But because of the poor ambiance, I doubt I’ll return again anytime soon.

My friend and I were seated promptly upon arrival - but it took a very long time to receive our order. The food was just ok. The popovers were sticky and tasted undercooked (which has never happened before at this location). The bread for the sandwiches was stale so we both ate our chicken and tuna salad (which was dry and needed mayo) sandwiches without the bread. Our server brought us the crab soup (my friend is allergic to crab) and we had both ordered the pasta soup. There was not one thing really great about this meal but the soup was good. We are return customers and were very disappointed in this experience.

I don’t know who manages this place now but maybe they had the day off. The service is awful, the food was even worse. For how expensive it is it’s toyally not worth it. I’ve been coming here with my mom for over 10 years and every time we come it gets worse and worse.

The cafe is simply amazing!!! Faruke our server to so so charming. He has waited on me for 20 plus years...

The only issue , that had nothing to do with cafe was the incredibly rude family that seemed to think the rest of us wanted to watch their rude loud screaming kds run around, while the chatted. Nov 25 about 330 party of 12.... Y'all should be embassed....

Great food, great staff. We often eat lunch at NM Cafe when traveling and visiting malls. We were seated immediately and the service was polite and professional. We did wait about 50 minutes after our order to get our food. It was obvious a large party was seated in the adjacent private room and the kitchen got a little behind. We had this happen in Dallas NM as well, so be prepared for a wait. Again, staff professional, food was fantastic, and reasonably priced for what it is.

Waitress was very sweet. I've never had an issue with the Chardonnay at a NM Cafe before, but this time the wine was really off and it wasn't just my palate, my guest also agreed. Normally, management would come over when there are such issues, but that didn't happen.Otherwise, lovely lunch spot and very fresh food.
