NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Always a reliable place to meet for high quality food, good service and elegant ambiance. Noise level much better than other place in the mall to eat. Place to go if you want high end food at Stanford mall. and of course, love the popovers with strawberry butter!
