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.

I've been dining at Neiman's for 50 years starting as a child. Probably 100 visits. I've always looked forward to the popovers with strawberry butter and especially the chicken CONSUMME. Just last year those were offered as the usual starters.
Friday, January 25th (almost) same thing. I was excited as this was a first visit for my lunch partner. The chicken consumme was BROTH! I expressed my disappointment and my guest informed me that are server had said "....and here is some chicken broth ...).
HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!

This is heartbreaking, because I used to be a regular at the Neiman Marcus - Forth Worth restaurant when it was located at the Hulen Mall. I understand why the store had to move, and it is a beautiful area. However, the restaurant was a HUGE disappointment, from a bland club sandwich to consommé that tasted like old chicken. Fries were tiny and overcooked. Waiter was pleasant, but not genuinely friendly. The one bright spot was the hostess. Genuinely friendly and truly meant it when she wished me a happy Thanksgiving.

I loved the new space. Of course, being Neiman's, they do everything beyond spectacular. There was a loud party near us, a baby shower group, but that was actually kind of fun to watch. It was a treat to spend time there, relaxed, super good food, nice staff, and the fashion parade was delightful, with the prettiest model!! Great time!!

The menu options are diverse and range from healthy and innovative to some very tradional tearoom offerings. The green salad with greens, zucchini spaghetti, avocados, cucumbers , goat cheese & almonds is very filling and delicious.The staff are all pleasant , I just don't think there are enough of them . The dining space is quite noisy and there isn't much ambiance. You look into the store or at parking above other stores.
We were there on a Thursday lunch and it seemed difficult to get water refills or get someone to check back on us to see if we had any other needs or requests with our meal.
The hostess was most responsive and would send over the correct personnel , but for a $40 lunch I expect more service .

My granddaughter and I have always loved to go to NM for lunch, however, since the NM Cafe has opened, it isn’t the same. We arrived yesterday, with a reservation, and there wasn’t anyone in the restaurant except one large table with about 20 or 30 women. They were all talking so loud we could not have a conversation at our own table and hear each other talk.
At a bare minimum, a room should have been designed in the build to accomodate large groups,
This was very disturbing, I had made a reservation for 11:45 and a lady with the big party came over and apologized for the noise and said we will be gone in 15 minutes.
I will have to give a lot of thought before I go back.
