We did not eat at the café because of the rudeness of the hostess in
making the reservation to being seated. Talked the General Manager
also who offered to make it up to us at that time but we were too
upset and left. Have not heard back from Neiman Marcus at all.
Very disappointed. Have been there several times and always had
great food and service. This was also Valentines day and wanted
a nice meal for our occasion.

Just a great hidden Gem most people don't think about. The food is just balanced perfect for lunch to feel full but not overeat. The bread is so flavorful and fresh with like a strawberry butter to add on. All fresh quality produce and nice quite patio . Highly recommend it for a nice lunch break in a busy day.

Outdoor seating climate control is a problem. With the heaters they use, some people are too hot, and others are too cold. Staff adjusts according to which patrons complained last. No ones fault but very poor design. And unfortunately, indoor seating is limited. Used to be my “go to” spot for a special lunch. Now: not so much. This has been a challenge my last two visits.

I have eaten in NM cafe ever since it opened and was disappointed yesterday.

Your younger hostess does not see that 90% of your clientele are over 50 and they played too loud of music for the younger type generational music.

Requested she lower volume a bit, but seems she did not want to and did not ever accommodate.

The service was exceptional but not the food and had my usual.

Additionally Disappointed to see the only 3 indoor tables you use to have were eliminated and no one likes to sit at those tiny narrow tables inside where you share your conversation with your neighboring table.

We sat outside and of course conversation was difficult with loud music and traffic noise.

I personally Will most likely not return after going there for more years than I can remember.

Regretful,
Carol Gant

This was the second time I have gone to the revamped Nieman Marcus Café in Scottsdale Fashion Square. The Five-Grain Roasted bowl was fantastic both visually and from a taste perspective. We shared a Caprese salad. Such a deceptively simple dish. When done correctly is it scrumptious; they nailed it. Ordered a non-alcoholic drink, the Pom-jito. Weird concept; soda, pomegranate juice and tea. So Good! Lastly, the new chairs were attractive and comfortable.

In the past the quiche was amazing. Unfortunately the current chef changed the look and overhauled the recipe. Now, it is bland, boring, and practically tasteless. However it looks pretty. The old adage should have been respected, "If it is not broken...". To rework for the sake of recreation and/or putting your stamp on a delightful dish was a terrible choice.
Secondarily, the deviled eggs were scrumptious. The soup of shrimp chowder is sublime. The popover and consume are still a brilliant offering while perusing the menu.
After coming to the NM Café for years, I will retry the revamped space again. At this moment not sure will recommend to others. Very disappointed with selection on the menu. Final word, desert. NOT everyone wants chocolate. Variety is a key element in tempting one to indulge in a sweet decadence.

I was bringing my daughter and grandson to a valentine day’s lunch. I remembered being served in China tea cups and saucers the consemme with popovers; such a delightful surprise. This was not the case, Disappointing. No consemme at all.

The server was kind and polite just slow and the patio was not busy.

We ultimately enjoyed our day but I had told them how lovely this experience would be and it did not live up to my hype. My bad.

Thank you,

Neiman Marcus has always been one of my favorite hidden lunch spots. The consumee and the popovers with strawberry butter are a tradition of years passed. Their other offerings with full calorie disclosure give you wonderful choices whether you’re looking for salads, warm entrees or delicious sandwiches. My favorites vary from fish tacos to crab and shrimp salad to quinoa pasta to grilled cheese. I only dinged the ambience today because when you have to sit inside it’s a little cramped. But 9 months of the year the veranda is great.

After dining at the San Francisco Cafe and Walnut Creek Cafe, I found Scottsdale to be too informal. Waiters wear jeans. San Francisco and Walnut Creek wear black and white uniforms and a vest.

I really enjoyed my afternoon birthday lunch with my Mom. The food was delicious but I think they could offer a little more on the menu and more desserts choices. Also they could use a little revamping on their decor. The inside is non-descriptive and the outside needs just a little refinement. All and all, this place is a wonderful hidden treasure to the outside world.

My husband and I love this restaurant. Everything about it is first class. it is a true gem and one that calls us back again and again. The pop overs and the cup of boullion served at the beginning of your dining experience is a treat to savor. The friendly and polite wait staff are an additional plus. I love that so few even know that it is there.

My daughter and I were looking for a good quick lunch and stumbled upon the NM Cafe! What we found was a little hidden treasure with wonderful ambience, great food and great service! I had the Crab Louie salad which was as good as I've ever had anywhere and my daughter had a salad with salmon that was outstanding. Our waiter, Kellen, was very cheerful and attentive and knew the menu very well. In addition, the popovers with the strawberry butter were delicious! I would definitely return for any occasion because our experience was great!

Our server was fantastic! She was so great and while the food is a bit overpriced she made it worth every penny. She was on top of every detail and when I asked a gluten free question she was thorough in getting the right answer. Highly recommend it!!
