NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus - Walnut Creek
Our server Carlos was so gracious and made our experience!
Food quality has gone down since I started coming here. They used to have delicious food!
I love this place. Will definitely come back again soon!
Nice setting for a ladies lunch, with the same traditions (popover, consomme, etc.) as the cafe in the city. Food is good, if a bit pricey. Cocktails are a little on the cloying side, but decent wine selection. Service is definitely the part they need to work on. Everyone is very friendly, but took 30 minutes from seating to get drinks on the table. "Thank you for your patience" was said at least 3 times.
Very nice for lunch but expensive. Not sure it is worth the extra money for the meal. For special occasion only
The food was terrible, they took forever to bring a salad . I think the quality has gone down!
The complimentary chicken broth and popover with strawberry butter always begin a lunch at NM Cafe deliciously. Attention was paid to my allergies by friendly, competent staff. Highly recommend a meal there.
It’s not the first time I have had lunch at this Café, and again I loved it as much as before. We had a lovely chicken salad nicely presented with fruit. The service was attentive and friendly, and the Café is quiet, which is really a plus nowadays when so many places are too loud. I will keep going back.
It’s a special place for nice service and good food. You definitely pay more than a normal lunch out but it’s worth it. The service is so nice and the food is delish.
A little but pricey but a wonderful menu, excellent service and the perfect place to take a special friend.
Overall, a great experience. I must say their lobster sandwich was pretty dad though. It had lobster, but the lobster didn't taste so fresh and had no flavor. The mayo completely overpowered it. It also had bacon and alvacado on it. I love bacon and alvacado, but on a lobster sandwich, I want to taste the lobster.
This is a very nice setting for a ladies at lunch where you can sit and talk and enjoy the company. I had a lobster sandwich which was a little light on the dressing and taste and the lobster pieces were smaller than I like. My friend had the chicken salad which is always a winner at this restaurant. The staff are professional and available but I think the price of the dishes is a little high.
Wonderful as always!!! Thank you for a pleasant experience for me and my guests!!! Until next time!
A delightful place to have lunch. From the warm welcome, to the fantastic service, the delicious food and the upbeat atmosphere..... lunch here is always a treat.
The wine country burger is fantastic! Great people that took care of us on my wife’s birthday!
It was my birthday lunch. The service and food was outstanding. I would recommend the shrimp tacos, they were delish
Always a treat. New menu items are great. Been going here for years and always great.
Wait staff was wonderful and the food delicious! Always a pleasure! Thank you!
Birthday lunch, service was very good
The food and service is very high quality. Too many people bring their children and let them run around and this is very disturbing. It has happened every time I have had lunch there.
The café is a lovely setting for a ladies lunch with friends. The food was just very average, bland and uninteresting. Usually the popovers are superb, but were cold and lackluster. The burger had too much going on......and the meat was overcooked to my order. Still, a nice place to meet with friends.
Always a great experience, food was very good , service from our server the best ever!!
This branch of the Neiman Marcus restaurants is consistently good. Having grown up with my Mother taking me out of school to attend fashion show luncheons at I. Magnin and Bullock's Wilshire in the 1950's, I have a special fondness for having lunch in an upscale department store. The Rotunda in NM San Francisco is a spectacular setting but there are too many tables and a rushed atmosphere that make the actual meal hit and miss. Walnut Creek is smaller and, while lacking the ambience of the Rotunda, its staff are better able to maintain quality control. No one expects haute cuisine but that's not the charm of a shopping lunch.
Great place for lunch with a friend.
It is a very nice place for lunch. Some nice complimentary touches plus our meal was delicious with good presentation
Would go back here
Food was just OK, I had the salmon special, fish was cooked perfect but it was just sooo bland. My friend had a salad &added shrimp very pricey for what we had, but it is Neiman .Server drove us nuts..... first he was very chatty & second every time he was leaving the table he would say “pardon me”, very annoying,
Service is welcoming, attentive and gracious, a combination rarely found elsewhere. All of the food was fresh, flavorful and a delight. Perfect for special occasions or any lunchtime gathering.
I took a friend there who had never been to the cafe. Our server, Csrlito, was so friendly and we really enjoyed our lunch!
My friend and I went to the NM Cafe to celebrate my Birthday. I cannot think of a better way to do that. Everything was perfection from the popover to the celebratory Birthday cake at the end.
Wonderful team and great service; who could ask for more?!
Always enjoy our meals at NM Cafe!!
Always excellent service. Great food.
We’ve used NM Cafes when shopping for 40 years. The Walnut Creek version is a little gem. Fine service, excellent food, small and cozy.
We always enjoy lunch at NM Cafe; food is excellent, as is the service!
Lovely Valentine’s Day lunch.
We love the service! Food has gone downhill and the prices have gone up. Not sure if will go back again. The tacos were the worst I have had. Absolutely no flavor!! The service is always excellent! The dessert was delicious!
Such a lovely place to have lunch with a friend! We had two lovely salads.
The food is not worth the price. It is a glorified cafe and the only good aspect of the meal was the bread.
My crab/shrimp salad was weak.
Carlito is the best waiter we have ever had serve us!
