                                                            We have patronized the Zodiac Restaurant for years. Today’s experience was not what we remembered about the former place. The service was excellent, but the food was a step below what we used to get. Also, the prices have risen quite a bit.

                                                            It's been quite some time since we have met here for lunch, so it was nice that things have not changed. The food, service and ambiance is still top notch. We were there for quite awhile catching up and never once did we feel rushed or annoyed by the presence of our waiter, Josiah, checking in on us. To make sure everything tasted fine, if we needed anything further, etc. It is always a great experience when lunching here and we are now committed to making it a routine visit again. You will not be disappointed.

                                                            Luxury shopping and lunching was once fun and decadent. Not anymore. Zodiac is downright depressing. It was empty for lunch and even the once-decadent popover was overcooked and dry. I once loved tucking into a booth there and enjoying warm service and great food. It had a special feeling. Yesterday, I had a tuna sandwich (allegedly on toasted sourdough). It arrived on a small piece of white bread with a side of 8 potato chips for just $17.00. Just terrible. Our waiter is a longtime employee and was kind, but the state of the menu is a very poor representation of the NM brand. Sad.

The food is amazing, we always get the orange salad which is so fresh and out of this world! The ambiance was quiet and very comfortable. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal and service. Randy is a gem and should be celebrated!

The restaurant is very classy and beautiful. We would be completely happy just enjoying the chicken broth and popovers with strawberry butter. The service is impeccable and our server (Randall) could not have been nicer. You’ll be really happy if you go here!

Randy, our server was courteous and helpful, and what's more, he kept our coffee cups full repeatedly. The food was excellent, the Christmas ambience was pleasant, the overall experience was definitely a ten, and I would recommend the Zodiac highly.

                                                            My favorite place when I want a special lunch The complementary consomme cup, popover with strawberry butter are such a special treat. Love the place! Always a special treat.

                                                            After we were seated Jocelyn took care of us, she began by serving NM's signature popovers with strawberry butter and a cup of warm chicken broth. She also took our beverage orders for water and teas, mine the Dammann Freres Iced Tea and Maggie the spiced tea, reminiscent of mulled cider, delicious. And seriously we worked this lady big time during the whole meal and appreciated her so much. She was amazing. Then our server Randall took our order for the Crab Louie Salad with a romaine wedge heaped with picked crabmeat surrounded by boiled egg wedges, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, radish slices and cucumber spears, with Louie dressing on the side. This is always a hit with us, it's as filling as it is beautiful and delicious.

                                                            We have been going to the zodiac for many years. One of the things we always have look forward to was the warm fresh popovers! We waited a long time for them to be brought to the table cold, certainly not fresh & very thin, worse than any popover I've ever had! The service was mediocre at best and our bill was about $100 for three people, we will find another place to celebrate in the future!

Wallid is a star and gave us such super service, Had the salmon my way which I love how accommodating they are with tweaking the set up. All the little Neimans touches of the broth and popovers make it so special. I am going to make this a monthly treat from now on. The store looked gorgeous as well. Thank you Neimans for keeping up this wonderful cafe.

                                                            Table servers at the NM Cafe - San Diego are very attentive, unfortunately this was not the case yesterday. I invited two of my friends to have lunch with me. Our server, Henry, was more interested in clearing tables than assisting us. He would disappear for periods of time, or pass our table rather than being approachable and personable. Needless to say, I was totally embarrassed for my friends that I invited. After our meal, I went to purchase several NM cookies, and could not find any host or server at the front of the cafe. I waited several minutes before a server came out and I was able to order the cookies. This experience is not usual for the NM Cafe. Very disappointing indeed. If the NM cafe wants to close its doors for good, they're on the right track.

                                                            NM Cafe is an elegant and lovely place to eat while shopping. It feels like a special treat to be served the tiny cup of chicken broth and one of those great tasting popovers. The food is always good and the wait staff very attentive.

The food was delicious and prepared with great care. Our waiter was very sociable and served us in a timely manner. The coffee was smooth with without a acrid after taste. Just a wonderful experience. The popovers are light, airy, and tender. The butter was infused with strawberries to enhance the flavor of the popovers. My friend had a memorable lunch to.
