NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus - Walnut Creek Ratings and Reviews
As always, my visit was wonderful. Spectacular service by Courtney and the rest of the staff at the Café. They always greet us by name and make a point to come over and say hi. Tried the seared ahi tuned salad on this visit which was superb. Perfectly seared pieces of tuna on a bed of butter lettuce, olives and haricot vert with a garnish of perfectly boiled eggs. The lemon vinaigrette was especially tasty. We love to finish our lunch with a cappuccino. The Cafe makes one of the very best.
It's not the Rotunda in SF, but this little cafe is a little oasis away from the usual restaurant/mall scene. (I actually enjoyed this small, cozy cafe compared to the bustling affair in the city -- especially sans traffic.) Attentive service, yummy food. Pricier than the nearby sit down restaurants in the area (it is Neiman Marcus) -- but not by much. Yes -- the traditional consommé, popovers and chocolate chip cookies are here! Great for a special place for a relaxed and long lunch.
The food is great, staff friendly, and service perfect. They make the best martinis in town. The ambiance is also perfect, the restaurant is not too big nor too small. Tables are the right size and seating is roomy and comfortable. Lighting is soft and pleasant.
Neiman Marcus Cafe never disappoints! Had lunch here on a day of holiday shopping. The service is always exceptional and look forward to the chicken consommé to start every meal as well as the popovers. I always go for the lunch trio...cup of soup, salad, and half a sandwich.
Another fantastic lunch at the WCR NM Café. We were lucky that Courtney was able to trade tables and be our fantastic server. Always delivering fantastic service, she recommends the perfect selection every time. I ordered the Scallop Risotto which was superb. Each enormous scallop was tender and beautifully carmelized on the outside. I also placed a pre order for Christmas of their amazing popovers and consommé. A perfect starter for the big event and Mariam did a great job of packaging it up exactly the way i requested when it was picked up on Christmas Eve. The team continues to value great service and they inspire me to keep coming back!
Brought my granddaughter for her bday. Had to take an 11 reservation as it said there were none between 11-1:30. Got to the restaurant and it was empty until noon! Our server was great. He brought us lots of consommé and popovers. Our salads were very ordinary(Walnut Creek chicken salad). Nice complimentary dessert. Overall, it was borderline good but certainly not over the top.
Outstanding food, delicious and tasty,with healthy options, too. Much care and thought has gone into the menu planning.
It is situated in the midst of luxurious goods and elegant surroundings, making it lovely, dependable and consistently civilized.
Impeccable, warm and friendly service.
Located in the heart of Broadway Plaza in beautiful Downtown Walnut Creek, it is a favorite lunch/weekend brunch spot.
The food was amazing as always but on this day our waiter Carlito (spelling I think but he was a male) was the highlight of our lunch. He was super nice and attentive Around this time of year, I normally go to the cafe in San Francisco but I would consider coming back to the Walnut Creek cafe for the service.
Lets start with the service...AMAZING. In fact, the service gets even more AMAZING with every dining experience. The hostess is top notch: friendly and very customer focused. Carlito is fabulous. His serving style is both delightful and gracious. Together they know how to deliver a great dining experience. The food is always super yum too. I cant wait to return.
I love the NM Cafe in Walnut Creek! I bring my friends and family there for the infamous popovers, and I always enjoy the food and service. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and they always seem to go above and beyond for the customers. I’ve had my drinks exchanged when the staff noticed I thought it was too strong (and this is without complaining about it!), desserts including the recipe for my birthday, and this last time I even got an extra popover packaged with my leftover food! You can’t beat service like that!
Loved the food, but wish the service was better. Maybe an off day? Seemed woefully understaffed with 2 servers for a packed mid week lunch. Our service certainly suffered as it looked like our server was nearly running from table to table. Salads were great as always. My baby kale & turkey salad was quite good and beautifully presented. Of course you can’t go wrong with the complimentary broth and divine popovers they serve.
