    Food was delicious! It had been several years since my friend and I were at the NM Cafe and we both had the Sampler. The tortilla soup is as good as ever, the tuna salad sandwich was also delicious as was the green salad. The monkey bread was delightful! Our serves was so sweet when she found out it had been so long since we'd been able to eat at the Cafe she brought us a chocolate chip cookie to share! It was a most enjoyable lunch!

    Nice menu even if somewhat limited compared to pre-covid. Very busy so noise level was loudish and service was affected by full cafe but otherwise good experience.

    The food was scrumptious. I’ve been to the cafe 10 times before, but this was my first time post-pandemic. They didn’t disappoint. This only issue was the service. Our server wasn’t as attentive as I’m used too. She kept forgetting things and she didn’t check on us. A little dissatisfying, however I enjoyed my first time back.

    NM Cafe is a lovely little spot for lunch with a friend. Tucked away in a corner of Neiman’s, it somehow feels private yet somewhat uncomfortably tight (tables are rather close together). The menu was recently updated but it’s not about the food, really. It’s a cozy, chic little gem that feels perfect for a “let’s catch up” moment. Service is always professional and courteous. I love this place for the ambiance. You’ll know what I mean when you’ve dined there. Enjoy!

    We have eaten at the Tyson’s NM for years when we are in town. The menu was very small, some of the favorites are gone, and the overall feeling was not positive. We use Open Table a lot and generally get treated well but in a restaurant with most 4 tops having two people and lots of empty tables we were seated at a small 2 top about 6” from the 2 ladies at the next table. Very uncomfortable.

    This is the second time I have tried the cafe' in our post COVID world. It was always a favorite place to lunch, relax and eat delicious food. Both experiences were awful, but yesterday was beyond awful. We were seated (with two babies) for 20 minutes and no one came to the table, even to say we will be with you momentarily. The manager finally took a drink order, but we didn't get those drinks for another 20 minutes. The manager then took our food order. The food arrived about 30 minutes later. My lobster bisque was curdled. The chicken salad tasted days old. It was not edible. We heard the apologies, "short staffed, COVID related delays, etc. etc." If you don't have the staff and can't provide the service, don't take the reservations! Such a disappointing experience.

    Beware when you make a reservation here. I made one using opentable for 3:45PM, walked in with my 2 young children, and was told by the hostess they closed at 3PM. I pointed to the sign at the entrance that said they close at 4PM. She then spent the next few minutes looking for any indication that they closed at 3PM and there was none except her telling me they close at 3PM before a holiday. If that’s the case, they should put a sign up that says so and not allow reservations to be made online past 3PM. Her presumptuous attitude was very rude and I won’t be going back. It’s no wonder the reviews for this location are terrible.

    We’ve been there numerous times prior to COVID. Always enjoyed the experience in past. This is our first back. Food was disappointing and we waited a long time time before anyone came over. We were one of two tables. For the price we expect more. Was very disappointed. Not what it was unfortunately.

    Menu is lovely return to the best of what always worked! N-M chardonnay excellent! Only negative was having my leftover food (crabmeat!) packaged and brought to me immediately, altho was obvious I and lunch partner were remaining to converse over coffee. Food then sat on floor for an hour or so! Yuk! That evening I recalled there had always been offer to keep back in kitchen until I was ready to leave store! Much safer and more considerate. I do not like the "white-washed" window wall. Much more social and animated when clear. And please paint the center pillar .......perhaps with an iconic butterfly! Love ya' still N-M! -Arla Lewis
