Our yearly tradition and absolute Christmas time favorite
The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus never disappoints - always excellent!
My friends and I love the Rotunda! We get together every holiday season for champagne and lunch.
This setting is always a wonderful treat, and the service is impeccable. The food is quite good and more interesting than typical. Their signature dishes like the chicken salad and the lobster club are really stand outs. The complementary chicken consommé and popover are something I look forward to.
Excellent place to dine.
While the quality of the food remains excellent, the portions have gotten smaller.
Even though our table was not ready at reservation time (beyond their control), they went out of their way to makeup for the delay with complimentary champagne and dessert. Superb customer service and the food is always delicious!
Work holiday event
The Rotunda was a perfect bday tea setting! We were seated center of the window overlooking union square...couldn’t have asked for a better view! Thouroughly enjoyed the tea service. The tea was awesome and the food was delicious!
Nieman Marcus is a class act! The food was excellent with presentations that rate the wow factor. Moreover, the entire staff was superb. It is extremely hard to reserve a table at this time of the year, which is testimony of how popular this place is. It is a little expensive but well worth it for this class act restaurant. If you want to impress someone, take them to the Rotunda at Nieman Marcus.
It's a lovely annual tradition for a special group of friends. The popovers are always a hit and this year, our server, Nick was the best every. He was so much fun!
Sadly, our annual tradition of lobster bisque was marred by extremely poor service. Eventually had to call the manager over to even place our order. Never saw the same waiter twice. Usually excellent service. I hope this is not a trend.
I love dining at The Rotunda. I dine there every time I’m in SF.
Wonderful lunch. Our waiter, Walter was Amazing!! Very attentive to our requests. Thank you Walter!!! We’ll be back.
Holiday tradition. Reservations early. They book up early.
My husband and I dined at the Neman Marcus Rotunda Restaurant for my birthday! We had a great time and very good food! My husband was so impressed about his very tasty turkey burger... the bread did not break apart, it was juicy and flavorful, yet it was not dripping all over his fingers! An all around good burger to the last bite! I had the grilled salmon fillet on a bed of bite sized zucchini and cherry tomatoes, with an amazingly tasting sauce. Then to top it off, we had the best strawberry short cake with coffee/café latte!! Definitely a 10 out of 10! Thank you chef(s)/staff. The waitress was very attentive, happy, and a caring person!
Annual shopping trip for my mother & her friend
I made a reservation for tea service and when seated they told me tea service was no longer available. I’m disappointed since it was so difficult to get a reservation during the holiday season.
I generally love the Rotunda. This experience was different in that I tried changing my reservation from 5 to 6 people, and it was impossible. They said they were completely full. I understood that, but when we got there and sat down we had to look at the empty 6th seat that was at our table of 6.
I went for afternoon tea and the rotunda was nicely decorated for the Holidays. The selection of tea's and sandwiches were tasteful and had nice options to choose from. I highly recommend going here for a special occasion or for the holiday since it is a little pricey but worth it!
Prompt service, excellent food and cocktail. Always a special treat.
I’ve been to the afternoon tea here a bunch of times and usually it’s great, but this time was not great - they completely ignored us, it took 45 minutes (not exaggerating) for them to bring us the food and when it came it was basically deli meat and cucumbers, where they used to give a whole scone now they gives ones the size of Oreos, usually there is a creative sandwich it was ham and cheese and turkey. They never refilled our hot water and never once checked on us (even though slow service made it so we were there for 2 hours) we had to flag them down for the check. It’s a lovely place and in the past I’ve had great experiences so not sure if this is just because it is the holidays or if their tea service is just no longer good.
A great spot for Christmastime cheer. Very festive. Skews female or "ladies who lunch" types. You could feel the holiday energy in the air with magnificent views of Union Square. It almost feels like a bygone era.
As always a wonderful lunch, great presentation and impeccable service.
Dining at The Rotunda Room makes me feel like a queen.
Food has a contemporary twist on familiar favorites. Service is impeccable. Especially festive at Xmas.
The Rotunda is fabulous the atmosphere, view, service and food are all just wonderful! It had my highest recommendation!
Very enjoyable food and cocktails between shopping. Wait staff was marvelous! Friendly and attentive!
I booked a table several weeks in advance as a Christmas gift for my daughter. I was thoroughly surprised and pleased to find we were given the most amazing table with the best view of Union Square and the Christmas tree. The chicken broth starter is a wonderful treat. Service was impeccable. The lobster bisque came super hot...always a pleasure. Our salads were substantial and delicious. We will be back.
We enjoyed the entire experience. None of us had been there before and we would definitely go back. From the El Dorado Hills,ca area.
Popovers are always my favorite. Lovely setting with the gorgeous Christmas tree in the center of course! The Rotunda is always a must for the holiday season.
This is a very special place. The ambiance is wonderful, food outstanding and the atmosphere festive.
Unfortunately, our server could not have cared less about our table. The busser was the only we saw for the first 20 minutes. When the server finally appeared, he took our order and was not to be seen again for the next HOUR. BTW - (It took another 20 minutes for 3 salads) We had to put our credit cards on the table to get his attention. We wanted to go to see the tree, next year we'll go see the tree and eat elsewhere. Service is much better other months of the year.
The Rotunda is a wonderful, unique San Francisco experience. The fabulous stained glass ceiling and the shape of the restaurant create a happy environment. The booths have such a private feel that you almost imagine that your party is all by itself at the restaurant. Right away, the wait staff brings you a cup of consomme and fresh popovers with strawberry butter. How wonderful! That's not all; you can have more of either treat if you wish. The menu is varied and the food is very tasty. There are numerous cocktails and wines that you can order to enjoy with your meal. This is a great restaurant for a special birthday or any other important occasion.
Food is just ok.
Love our annual holiday lunch at the Rotunda! Beautiful setting and a great way kick off the Christmas season.
Server Nick was Excellent. Always great to dine at this restaurant!
I have lived in San Francisco for over 40 years and the Rotunda has never changed. I feel like a movie star when I eat there. The staff is amazing, the food is fresh, local ingredients and beautiful setting....
Enjoyed tea there many times. Made reservations weeks in advance and had a horrible table. It ruined the entire experience. Think we will find another spot.
Service was good but food was a disappointment. Have been many times but the lettuce was not fresh and my warm sandwich was cold
They made accommodations to add 2 ppl to our table. Wait staff was exceptional. Unfortunately they were out of several items on the menu.
