One would expect 5-star service at any NM cafe. Lunch at this one was extremely disappointing. The hostess was rude and told us the cafe closed despite my having reservations. She rolled her eyes at me and stated “I have no idea why.” I complained and suddenly the restaurant magically reopened.

Our server was similarly apathetic. He brought cold food and incorrect wine and acted like redoing both were a huge inconvenience for him. The final straw occurred while I was paying. A sign on the table actually read that servers would be delighted to look up NM Perks reward accounts, and I knew I had a perk reward for the restaurant. I gave our server my drivers license and expected him to do as the placards suggested. He told me he didn’t have to do that, and that I needed to pay the bill then take it up to customer service for an adjustment.

Food is fine but the terrible and snobby attitude from staff at this restaurant make it a sour experience. The store management should seriously overhaul the cafe in Atlanta.

Service was wonderful. The Herb Roasted Chicken and She Crab Soup were amazing as usual. The only thing I have to complain was the complimentary chicken consommé, it was lukewarm and not hot as in the past.

Slow service, long wait to get meal, no drink refills, and the food was just not good considering the price. The chicken noodle soup had no noodles, popovers were doughy, and the chicken salad was dry. Last time I was here my review was the same - I went back hoping it was better. It was actually worse. This has not always been the case at this location - I will not return.

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.
