I was in NYC for an 8 hour layover on my way to London and it was a perfect meal. The service always at top of its game and the food exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled to start my birthday weekend at this great place. I will definitely be back soon.

Went with a group of 4 for afternoon tea and had a lovely time. It was very empty and the restaurant's music was fairly quiet making the atmosphere the only thing holding me back from 5 stars. Our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their tea selection and we truly enjoyed the tea sandwiches and scones. We were served passion fruit and lavender macaroons which were well made but a little too ambitious for our flavor preference. We hoped for a more traditional tea cake like Victoria sponge or petit fours. Hopefully when they've been open longer, we'll return for a second try!

I have eaten at the Zodiac before and it was good, but this time it was terrible. I won't eat there again. Our server was lovely, but the food and cocktail were not.

We plan to return often. Coming to Zodiac in NYC is like coming home -- all the familiarities I so enjoy in other cities, popover with strawberry butter and consommé, are like an embrace. My lunch was superb, and we lingered over coffee before shopping. We will be back soon!

This is why I LOVE Neiman-Marcus!

I love The Zodiac Room and so does everyone I've been there with. It has a varied menu, the service is great, there's a wonderful view, and there is no blasting music.

We had a lovely dinner. The food was delicious, the ambiance was warm and welcoming and our server, Ro, was fantastic!! Ro was knowledgeable about the menu, the development of Hudson Yards and about NYC itself. She was helpful and informative but never pushy or obtrusive. We look forward to another delicious experience at the Zodiac Room soon.

Our Servers Were INCREDIBLE!!! Their KNOWLEDGE, EXPERTISE, PROFESSIONALISM and ENTHUSIASM was UNSURPASSED ‼️‼️ The entire staff was SO LOVELY and WELCOMING. The views are outstanding and the food is DELICIOUS and served ARTISTICALLY !! The servers were are to describe to a tee, each dish and help make the proper selection. Eva paired our Prosecco desire with an OUTSTANDING sparkling wine suggestion that was the best EVER!! An overall TREAT and an amazing place to dine within an AMAZING VENUE AND DESTINATION!! THIS IS TRULY THE MOST GORGEOUS NEIMAN MARCUS ANYWHERE!!! And, ZODIAC is THE BEST NM RESTAURANT we’ve dined ( our of several )!! And, located in the BEST NEW DESTINATION IN NYC IN DECADES- HUDSON YARDS- an EXPERIENCE BEYOND!!

After a long search (no signs) we found it, visiting for afternoon tea - a group of 7. Despite the restaurant being completely empty, we were given a table in a windowless room. Service was weak - despite being the only customers we had to go in search of a server, even into the kitchen at one point.
There was no flexibility in our ability to order - everyone was going to be served afternoon tea whether we wanted it or not. Hot water came in teapots without the tea in it so tea leaves had to be put in the cup. This made the idea of having a pot of tea obsolete since getting a refill required adding (now tepid) water to the already once soaked teabags. Ugh. Sandwiches were very good and nicely served and the table top composition was beautiful.. But the food itself was disappointing and fell flat, much like the “scones”.
I would not return.

The decor is beautiful .. modern and sleek without it being cold. The wait staff was very good. However the food was just good because it was more of a lunch menu and less exciting for dinner. Wish they had more options.

I am a NM frequent eater all over the country and the food at this particular one was below my expectations. The Greek said was very average and the chicken addition was so salty - almost inedible. Service was excellent.’our waitperson was very lovely and efficient. She had no idea that we didn’t like our lunch. My husband’s Chicken dish was just okay. Sadly, Not a home run.

Nothing special like other N-M restaurants, like in Honolulu for instance. The popovers were good with the strawberry butter whip. But they left off the consumme, server error I'd suppose. Other nearby tables were served. Service was spotty, rushed but mostly adequate. Didn't find the chairs to be very comfortable, so we became eager to leave. Chicken salad with soufflé' was very tasty, a traditional serving of NM restaurants I'd never tried before. The lobster roll was OK. Probably won't go back here.

The salad was overpriced 29 dollars with a thin piece of chicken. The service was slow and a refill for my iced coffee ; first time a glass of tea was given, returned and sent back with iced coffee with a lemon on the glass. In addition each glass was charged 5 dollars, for a glass of ice and little coffee.

Going to Hudson Yards, there are a myriad of places to shop and eat. The Zodiac is an oasis of quiet. We enjoyed a nice lunch on our way to visting some shops and the Vessel. The food was good, with the usual Zodiac flair. Always nice to start a meal with the chicken broth and pop overs. We look forward to that tradition making Zodiac at other Neiman's a place we visit.

I can describe the food in one word: ‘meh’. The Hudson salad was indigestible vegetables with an overly citrusy dressing. And a teeny but tasty piece of salmon add-on. I left feeling hungry since I didn’t eat much, nor did my friend who ordered the same. Thank g-d there was a popover.
I made the reso stating it was my husbands bday & no acknowledgement made was a surprise to me.
Service was good & decor was beautiful.
Too many better choices in the yards.

It was me and my husband and we wanted to sit by the window. They sat us at a big table for 6 which was very wobbly and since it was just the two of us the entire seating was on one end of the table which made the table worse. when we asked the server about the table he said he couldn’t do anything at that point which was strange because the entire restaurant was practically empty. We had be careful through out our meal worried that we don’t spill my drink (a Manhattan) since it was served in a Martini glass. We ordered the pate and it was just terrible.
