    Amazing food and amazing service. I used to come here in my thirties when I worked in SF. It’s been 20 years now and I love that it’s remained an icon. My business associates said it was the best meal of the trip. I dined here earlier on Sunday to make sure it was a good choice for lunch. Had the best meal twice on this trip!

    It's almost obligatory to do a meal at The Rotunda, but then it's almost a religious obligation to ship at Neiman Marcus. The food is always reliable. Wouldn't matter what dish, it is always reliable. The service is very good, which is part of the reason for coming here. The people spotting and the "business class face" is just the stuff of pure hilarity. But certainly, do the food. I really liked that every attention was given to organising non alcoholic cocktails as well.

    I really love this place. The atmosphere and food are top-notch. This time, however, our server was terrible. We waited about 30 minutes before she came to our table and then only when we flagged her down. Bad attitude to boot. We hope next time will be better.

    Food was delicious and our waiter was very nice and attentive. The male host was not very nice, speaking to me in a very dead tone and definitely has that you are not dressed to dine here kind of attitude. He clearly saw us walking out when we were done and didn’t even say thank you just stare at his station pretending to do some work… he needs to work on his attitude.

    Service decent, food wasn’t as good as in the past but generally good. Would return as the popovers are still part of the experience. A good place to bring visitors from out of town or friends to for a unique dining atmosphere at lunch.

    This is a lovely place for afternoon tea or that special occasion lunch under the stained-glass dome (which incidentally depicts a ship, the Ville de Paris, which brought the founders of the former department store, City of Paris, to SF in 1850)! The complimentary popovers and chicken consomme' are so yummy! I highly recommend making reservations as this place books up quickly - especially around the holidays when they place a Christmas tree in the center of the rotunda.

    We’ve always enjoyed lunches and tea at the Rotunda, once bringing our very young daughter here (now she’s 40!). The beautiful ceiling is absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I always find something delicious on the menu, this time tuna tartare for me and the shrimp and crab Louis for him. The service was rushed at times, but our waiter was friendly and polite… and after wine and a shared espresso martini, we had an excellent shopping experience at Neimans.

    The prawn and crab salad--now $40.00--contains half as much prawns and crab as before the pandemic. Just as with many of the high end clothing lines made in Italy, there has been price inflation and a decease in size. Oh yes, we had to ask for popovers and they were served cold. I guess that's life.
