The food was excellent. Complimentary popover and cup of broth were a very nice touch. Service was erratic, perhaps the server had too many tables to handle at one time. Bussing was non-existent; used plates were left for too too long before clearing. It was lunchtime and the sound level made it hard to have a conversation. Overall, a good place to go to, even if you're not in the mall to shop.

The DineLA Week 2018 menu and dining experience was great. Service was top notch as always. The broth and biscuit starter is always a nice touch as is the AMAZING puffed bread/Yorkshire pudding hybrid they start the meal with. I had the crab cheese dip which was actually quite crab-forward and the wantons were perfectly fried. The steak frites looked a bit dry at first, but was perfectly cooked (medium rare) and had a nice crust on the meat and just enough juice to sop up. The fries were cheesey, truffley and great.

Not as elegant as some of the other NM restaurants, but with all the classic fare. All about the popovers and strawberry butter!

I love this restaurant but this visit, my first in close to a year, was not an enjoyable experience. The server seemed harried and as if she didn’t care if people were being wll taken care of. We sat with used dishes from the broth and popovers courses throughout the meal. They forgot to brown the cheese on my burger, and forgot items on my dining partners plate. We were not offered dessert. The waitress handed us our check to us through the neighboring diners table which was rude and awkward. The chocolate mints that come at the end of the meal are no more. Hopefully this was a one off experience.

Love NM Cafe for lunch. There is an outside area with running water in a fountain that provides great atmosphere. Service was attentive and the restaurant is quiet. Menu offers very healthy choices prepared well. This is one of my go to spots to meet people for lunch.

Very Elegant and delicious. Service was great. Fresh baked popover is worth the drive from anywhere.

Elegant lunch dining, excellent and courteous service, delicious automatically served chicken soup with cheese pastry and an inimitable popover -alone making the lunch worthwhile -and good food, unusual and filling appetizers. The tortilla soup is wonderful; the spinach and artichoke dip ditto. Beautiful presentation. Fine coffee. The cookies make a most generous dessert -usually too many to finish in one sitting and the recipe for the NM Chocolate Chip Cookies makes this "the gift that keeps on giving."

Everything great except for noise level. Need some sound absorbers. Not a good place for intimate conversations.

The food and service here are always top notch. Highly recommended when your in the area, just be aware that the valet charge at the mall is $15 and NO validation or anything else to lessen that amount...not by the hour or anything, just a flat $15...worth driving around to find a spot probably.
