It's expensive for what it is, but we can't stay away! You can't exactly get a famous popover with strawberry butter anywhere else!
My mom always gets the burger, which she says is the best she's ever had while I love the grilled cheese.

NM Traditions: popovers, chicken broth, chicken salad. Need I say more. Delicious. The hostess, waitstaff and ambience are perfection.

We had a ladies lunch date prior to dress shopping for our special teenager. To be fair, there was a baby shower taking place (@ a dozen women) but the restaurant isn’t that large so that shouldn’t have been an issue. We waited awhile at the hostess stand and were eventually seated. Our waiter was a much older gentleman who maybe had 1/3 to 1/4 of the tables (not including the shower). Our drinks took forever to arrive and my MIL asked multiple times for additional (tap) water which finally was fulfilled by the hostess. We waited awhile for our entrees too and got checked on very rarely. We had to ask for the bill 3 times. We were not in a hurry ... but the service is better at Zoe’s than here. I doubt we will be back which is a shame.

Noise level is high when private parties are there. Sound bounces off walls making it impossible to visit with guest.

Eric was wonderful as always. The Hostess was accommodating, especially since we had not but two handicapped guests. All were handled with discretion and kindness throughout. Can’t wait until next time!

The food is absolutely delicious. We've always had great service. This is the first time it was slow but it won't stop us from going back. I definitely recommend it!

Could have been a lovely lunch, but the noise level was terrible -- more like a Friday night bar/restaurant. Very hard to visit in this atmosphere. Service slow and waitress not very attentive to refilling drinks, took a long time to get bill and processes payments. Miss the class and elegance of the old NM restaurant.

I always enjoy the food at the cafe at Neiman's. This time, I had a wonderful salad but the chicken on it was very overcooked and dry. When I told my server he immediately apologized and took the charge for the chicken off of our bill. I appreciated how he handled the situation and will always go back for a great lunch at this lovely spot.

We eat here regularly and it's always good. They put some sound absorbing material in long ago to help with the noise, so it's very pleasant to visit in there now.

Try the Elyx Mule - it's delicious!

The difference in NM FTW and the three NM restaurants in Dallas is as stark as the difference between the two cities. But it’s still a nice treat
When you’re in the area.

The menu has been reduced to nothing. The food was middle of the road because there was nothing on the menu I wanted. The noise level,was better than ever since no one was there. Won’t be back for a long, long time.

The service was awesome by everyone - start to finish. Food is definitely lacking, but hey, it’s Neiman Marcus in Fort Worth, Texas. Rather an oxymoron in itself. Would I return? In a heartbeat. ❤️

It's still just TOO loud! There was a big group of girls in the center of the restaurant and with their conversations it overwhelmed the entire restaurant. We where sitting in a booth. It made it extremely difficult to talk.
