We love it here. My daughter meet here for 'Ladies Who Lunch'. It's 'our' place.
always seems special when it's just friends for lunch. always great food. love the popovers
We eat there all the time because is in my neighborhood and convenient but lately past 3-4 times that we ate there the food is really taste less and oily. I had salmon with rice and vegetables, it was too greasy and no taste. The soup was bad. I hope they consider this matter because we like it there and if it continues to be the same we have to take our ladies weekly lunch get togethers else where.
Food was good, popover was great, service not so much. Also, they forgot it was my friend's birthday and didn't get the dessert that other reviewers talk about.
Server was very not attentive throughout the meal. We ordered a kids meal, but we just got the pasta, without any drinks and a cookie even we asked.
NM Cafe is a good and convenient place to dine whenever we shop at Stanford shopping center. On our recent visit, while the food choices and quality remain high, we experienced that the service is lacking. The front host was unprofessional and busy chit chatting with friends dining there, and they were loud. No respect for other diners there. We were a bit disappointed.
It’s a quiet place to eat. Food is good but not great. Expensive.
Great food, service and location
Hadn’t been to NM cafe in years, but perfect place to meet a friend for lunch. My Caesar salad with grilled shrimp was perfect blend of fresh ingredients, and just the right ratio of lettuce, dressing and croutons. Service was attentive without hovering. Will go back.
Took my 90 year old mother here for a special Christmas lunch. Everything was perfect from the quiet table in the corner they gave us to the delicious food and impeccable service. Always a great spot for a quiet lunch. She really enjoyed it.
Enjoyed my crab salad and glass of champagne. Great place to dine alone or with a group.
Crab soup was bland
Rice with mushrooms was oily and overseasoned with soy sauce
They were out of ice cream at opening
Disappointed by the menu and quality of the food. We were there for Christmas lunch together and it really wasn’t festive either!
Always a reliable top-quality meal with relaxed environment. They represent the dept store well. Wine and beer collection was great. Meal was basically perfect and I will return often.
I was there with my daughter and granddaughter. We have been going for the past five years during the holidays. Service has always been excellent. We were there for lunch and the food was very good. They overheard me saying it was my granddaughters birthday. At the end of the meal they brought her a nice dessert with a candle. Very nice.
I brought my sister-in-law for light lunch and had a wonderful, restful time. It got noisy as all the tables filled up, wish there was a little more noise absorbing walls. Service was outstanding, Martha was efficient and friendly.
A great place for lunch at STanford mall. Quiet and elegant ambiance. Food is always great. Ingredients are fresh and always perfectly cooked. I come here often.
I was disappointed in my lunch meal. I have been to NM Cafe a couple of times in the past few years. Memorable has been the popovers with the strawberry butter. This time, however, the popover was lukewarm and only mediocre. My cousin enjoyed her crab cake salad; however I found my bistro salad (spinach, chicken, cranberries, blue cheese, candied walnuts) also only so-so.
Overall, I guess I will not be back, as I think there might be other options to check out in Stanford Shopping Center and vicinity.
Convenient, very good food, portions almost too big - should consider half orders.
Two of us had a delicious meal and nice conversation. Service was prompt and friendly.
Great for lunch at the Stanford Shopping Center. Lunch with a lot of class.
Good service but the food is not as good as it used to be, though the prices have escalated. My chicken salad was dry and tasteless.
Martha was great!
Dad had dr appt at Stanford then had to go to another dr appt in Daly City,
Martha was great accommodating our schedule
The lunch was delicious. The setting was bright and comfortable. The disappointment:
our waitress did not ask if we wanted dessert!
The food and service ad servers are great. Martha is wonderful.
Lovely birthday lunch. The restaurant was very slow today, so they were very patient with us taking a VERY long lunch. We had a great time.
My favorite place to have a girlfriend lunch and shop afterwards.
My friends and I have enjoying lunches here for many years. Pretty much always satisfied with
our food and service. Of course we love the popovers and the consomme. I know that getting
together with friends for lunch Neiman Marcus Cafe will always be at the top of the list.
Our server made the meal. Excellent food and service...just the table was not in the best location; too close to wait staff station...loved the NM salad, orange souffle...
A great menu and kitchen. Please hire an interior designer. Was I revisiting the 70s? Compared to SF the space is undecorated and sterile. Call Pushelberg ASAP!!!!
