The Cafe in Neiman Marcus is a great little spot, tranquil and enjoyable, with very friendly, professional staff. Little bit on the pricier side (for me), but worth it.

Love the tiny cup of broth and the famous popovers when you first sit down. There were 2 different quiches that day and both were excellent. Nice to have a small salad and bowl of fresh fruit on the plate. Just the right amount of food on the plate. Service is excellent and you're not rushed. This is my 2nd visit and I'll be going back.

A lovely luncheon experience. The popovers and strawberry butter were yummy and kept coming, and the meal was delicious (especially the tuna pecan salad). Highly recommended.

The NM Cafe is a hidden gem at Oak Brook mall. I am not sure how many know about this wonderful spot for lunch, but it is worth a trip. The menu has a variety of options for those who want either fresh entrees or meat.

We had reservations for Sunday at 1:30. There was a large table of 20 women for a shower dominating the room, in both space and noise, really uncomfortably loud. The highlight were the free popovers and chicken broth. My daughter and I split the shrimp salad and crab cake sandwich, which were both just okay, and expensive. I am not in a hurry to return.

We love this place. Food is most excellent, presentation and service are something that harken back to times in the 1960s and 1970 when real pride was routinely taken in the level of service and attention to detail at the table. This is rarely seen in this day of mass marketing of "fast casual" dining experiences. And while not inexpensive, the prices are very reasonable given the quality of food and service.

Some time ago we discovered this restaurant while shopping at Neiman Marcus. Since we liked it a lot, we decided to try it again and really enjoyed this visit also. The food is really fresh, individually and well prepared, hence tasting fresh. Service is friendly and at a comfortable pace. We will come here more often in the future.
