The popovers and consommé were very good. The meals were delicious. We were there to celebrate a birthday and they no longer offer the coconut cake or complimentary dessert, which is fine but the cake we got was extremely dry. Fine lunch spot but it’s lost the celebratory luster it once had.

Quiet celebratory lunch with great food. The chocolate cake for dessert was awful. Dry and didn't take good, but the icing was good. Sorry I paid $7 for it.

Food really wasn’t very good this time unfortunately. Brown lettuce and brown avocado on a $35 salad. The crab meat was fresh and plump but when you’re spending $35 for a salad you really should have fresh avocados and fresh lettuce… it may be that it’s just not as good on a Monday but it was rather disappointing. However, the popovers and strawberry butter and spice tea were all phenomenal as usual

The menu was greatly reduced in selections and neither of us ate what we ordered. It was huge and the chicken salad was not at all what I was expecting. I love the restaurant, this just was not a good visit.

We used to lunch at Neiman’s for a special treat, which would always include Champagne cocktails, popovers, salads, or other yummy options. Service was always excellent and the overall experience justified the price point. Sadly, this is no longer the case. The lunch menu is extremely limited now. No champagne cocktails either, even though our server said he’d heard others speak of them. My chicken salad came out sans the chicken salad, which, after mentioning it to our server, immediately was taken back to the kitchen to fix. The corrected version just had tiny dollops of chicken salad scattered throughout the greens. A simple scoop would have been more appetizing. It kind of looked like someone had already been eating it. My husband said his entree of chicken pollard was average at best. The popovers and strawberry butter would end up being the high point of our lunch. I will say, the staff was friendly and seemed to want to please, but the offerings just don’t warrant another visit.

I have always looked forward to coming to neimans but the food watched worse I have ever eaten. Casear salad was horrible. Have no idea what the lettuce was supposed to be. Please go back to your tried and true recipes . We were so disappointed in the food except for the popovers. Will not be back anytime soon. Way to noisy too

Server was polite but service was poor. said he does not bring popovers until you order.
That was not what we had previously experienced over the years. Had to ask for more tea after waiting with empty glass for a while. Noise level is very high.

We waited for 10 mins at the front desk and no one came so we had to walk in...We had a reservation and I had a gift card from Neiman Marcus on amount $100 and we ordered two salads and desert - fruits... The fruits have never arrived... The check also has never arrived because he took the gift card. The waiter ignored us for the last 20-30 mins. And when I asked for the check he said "you can leave the tip by cash"... I did leave but I am not coming back. There are plenty nice places with much better service and great food in Clearfork. I will not be back.

Way too loud back along the windows, and the temperature was very warm. You could definitely tell the difference from walking in the door, cool, to back of room, warm.
The food was delicious, but really hard to hear the people at our own table!

NM Cafe offers a lovely dining experience starting with their famous popovers and chicken broth. The service on the day of my visit was top notch and the food was delicious. The only negative comment I have is that the sound level was an issue, because the Cafe was full. I sat next to my dining partner, instead of across from her, so I could hear her softer voice, better. Still, I would go to NM Cafe whenever I had the opportunity! Bon Appetit!
