A pleasant surprise. Met a friend for lunch to catch up and this was the perfect venue. We both had salads that were first rate. Service was excellent. Would recommend this for a lighter lunch.

The hostess is absolutely the best! She always greets us with a smile, is friendly, and is professional yet warm.
The wait staff is attentive and the menu is exceptional.
All of the above keeps us as regular customers . Thank you!

My husband and I enjoy lunch at the Neiman Marcus Café regularly on the weekends, and I stop in during the week periodically for lunch or maybe just a cup of soup and tea at the bar top area. The staff members are wonderful and all know us and treat us like family. The food is always delicious, and the atmosphere is lovely and usually perfect for quiet conversation or reading (unless there is a big event in the store, then it is a bit more upbeat and provides fun people-watching). It can be a bit on the pricey side (it is Neiman Marcus, after all) , but NM Café provides a lovely little respite from the usual lunch suspects, and always feels like a treat.

My friends and I love the NM Cafe. It's cheerful, warm and inviting. Tony was our server most recently. He is great - funny, attentive and sweet. The staff is always pleasant and welcoming. Food is always delicious.

It’s food is above the average. But not super good. The lobster ravioli is bit of dry, and only has little hint of lobster scent from the sauce. Other than tha, it was good. The lobster salad has the whole tail, mixed with other ingredients, looks delicious. I would more like the egg puffy bread than the monkey bread. (Not served in this location but I had before from other NM cafe.) The butter cream was very tasty, and I like the monkey was hot. The service is very nice. However the space is quite tight. Wish they have larger room so it would be more relaxed.

Small place with a very limited menu. I was under the impression that all NM have the same menus and the ambiance.
I am very happy with the one that we have here in Fashion Island, Newport Beach.

As a long time Neiman's customer who hadn't been to this particular cafe, I was terribly disappointed.
I recall the days of elegant settings, lovely ambience, Neiman's famous popovers...I used to take people to the restaurants in Dallas, Westchester,NY and others locations for a birthday or special lunch. At that time, I had no problem sing $65-$70 (with tip) for a lunch (n wine) but I was really disappointed. I will not go back to this one (Tyson's Corner). May has well have gone to the Silver Diner.
Sorry

We had a 3-person get-to-know you meeting with a new collaborator on a year-long project. The venue and meal provided a classy way to meet and share information with our soon-to-be best friend. The food was delicious and delightful and the service was as always excellent. [I continue to think that the orange souffle should be identified as a chicken salad dish. It has both but the chicken salad is the drawing card!]

As usual, everything was delicious! I didn't care for the soft taco flavor but the shrimp filling was delicious! The lentil soup was even better than usual. Had a wonderful flavor. The tomato bisque was also very good. The spiced tea was okay. I have had better.

Their staff are so wonderful! They always take such good care of us. Just love eating there!

We order the most expensive salad, $29 and was disappointed we only received 2 shrimp. We expected to have a little more shrimp in our salad spending almost $30

Happy to See NM Cafe on Open Table! We have been dining there for lunch for many years now...whenever we are at the Galleria. The Service is above highest standards, friendly, attentive and quick. We know most of the Servers by name and we are treated like family. Love this Cafe! Homemade soups, salads and desserts are delicious. (Danielle's at the Galleria provides their cakes now.) If Reuben Sandwiches are on the menu, try them out. Best we've ever had, tender and lean! Anything with shrimp is also very good. Of course the Monkey Bread with Strawberry Butter is always ready for you when you arrive. We usually do not get their full meals (too much food for shopping afterwards) but what we have had was as good as everything else.

We have never been disappointed with their food. We would recommend The NM Cafe to everyone! Unfortunately, we live about 40 miles away.

The NM Cafe is a lovely oasis for foot weary shoppers at Tysons Galleria. Excellent food choices, great service, relatively quiet atmosphere. Only problem...it is small, so make reservations or go during less popular dining hours. It was perfect for a small girlfriends get together.

Relatively small unassuming little cafe with fantastic, that's right, fantastic entrees. I am basing my opinion on the salmon, corn and asparagus entre. Wonderful. Great change of pace from my usual chop houses, steak joints and diners. Great take.

Great spot for a good meal in an unlikely place. The cafe has great Mimosas and Sangria. I have been at this location for breakfast one day and lunch another. Breakfast was delicious. Cheese souffle', bacon, blueberry muffin and fruit. For lunch try the roast beef sandwich or the pumpkin ravioli. Make sure to get the cookie box. You can eat it there or take it with you. As you know Neiman Marcus is famous for their chocolate chip cookies.

I had the butternut squash soup. It was good, but a bit salty. The warm roll with strawberry butter was great. Unfortunately, I had a loud woman sitting at the table next to me. Since the place is small, the tables are quite close together. All in all, I would probably not go back. There are just too many other good places in the same mall.

The menu is consistently the same.. a variation or seasonal one would be appreciated! They may include one or two dishes but they run out of them pretty quickly like the pumpkin soup on our last visit that they didn't have it because supplier didn't come that day (is what they told us!)

Service is VERY good ! We love Maria!!

The menu is neither large nor overly creative, however, Service is the hallmark of Neiman Marcus and it is alive and well at the NM Cafe.

When you are here, you are treated like royalty - and without royal prices. And to be clear, the food isn't bad - the strawberry butter they serve with bread is exceptional - its just that the menu is standard. They more than make up for it through their service and ambiance. You will simply have a good time here.

Great ambiance, good selection of variety of food. Nice to have healthy options. Did not care for the way cappuccino was made, mostly with milk. It's supposed to be only milk foam! It's great to have that convenient location while shopping. I will definitely go back when @ Neiman Marcus, or near by in tysons corner. By the way our waiter was great even though he was extremely busy.

Easy to access by the south door of Tysons II, this is a nice little hidden gem that serves very good food and has a nice feel to it. If you want to get off the beaten path and have a nice, cozy lunch and stay away from Tysons lunch-time craziness, this is a good spot.

If food were better, it would be a first choice place for shoppers at NM. Convenience is its greatest asset, but food id just fair. Salads are not so crisp and fresh as they should be.
It might be nice to offer a hot and a cold special of the day!
