A lovely afternoon lunch by the window. Food was delicious- crab cakes were outstanding. I loved the fashion show only wish the models would be more frequent.

It was a great dining experience. The food was excellent. I felt bad for the waitress. They were short staffed, she had to seat us, take our order, and clean up.

I always considered The Rotunda one of the best places to lunch at the mall. I realize that COVID has put a crimp into everything , but if u can’t make it stand out as something special, then just close like other places did. Everything was just plopped down on the table. The popover was COLD like out of the refrigerator. We had to ask twice for water and there were a handful of customers. Outside of the orchid when u come in there was just emptiness all around. It was nothing like my many other enjoyable lunches at Neiman’s.

Great place for lunch if you're looking for a healthier meal at the mall with your hubby or best girlfriends. Hearty portions that can be shared. Classy place.

Food was fantastic, as was the service. We were disappointed to find that there is no alcohol served, as we wanted a glass of wine with lunch, but it certainly wasn't a dealbreaker! The complimentary broth and warm popovers were amazing. Highly recommend.

This is a great spot to get lunch. The crab cakes were filled with crab and delicious. The salmon was also great. The only negative is the chocolate chip cookie we purchased to go, was too hard and seemed like it wasn't made right..... The rest was great.

We always have a nice time at the Rotunda. The service is always excellent and attentive. I enjoy the complimentary little cup of broth they provide at the very beginning. It’s a nice touch. The puffy bread and tasty butter also is very good. The lunch I had was good, although the soufflé part of it was just okay. Still, I look forward to returning.

Very excellent atmosphere because of neutral colors, warm hued walls, fancy place mats and silverware, and Christmas decor. My family ordered the flatbread, chicken melt, grilled cheese, and salmon tacos. Everything was served in an amazing style. The popovers take awhile to receive because they don't like to let them cool down, the head chef in Texas stated that popovers can only come out straight from the oven with no substitutes which I think is genius, quality over quantity. Everything was excellent!

Very clean bright and airy environment as the skylights shower the restaurant with light. Good food, good service and nice place for a quiet lunch with fitness and clients. When you want something that’s nice but not the steakhouse, not the pub and not the chain restaurants.

Very quiet when we were there. Great service and our entrees were lovely. The famous popovers were unfortunately dry and overdone this time which was what knocked this review from 5 stars to four.

This is a very nice department store lunchroom with large windows and a dome. Of course, the cup of chicken broth and popover with strawberry butter is a tradition and one I have enjoyed for many years. Our lunch was delicious and our server was very attentive.

We had a nice dining experience. The large windows and skylight create a nice atmosphere even if you are overlooking the parking lot. The waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the complimentary broth, popovers with strawberry butter and the chocolate mints at the end. The entrees were a big portion. Our party had the crab cakes with a salad, the 1/2 soup and 1/2 sandwich option and the turkey sandwich which came with salad and fruit. The only negative would be the outdoor iron chairs. They were not really comfortable and they were very heavy to move in and out and they made a screeching noise when pulling them in and out. We would come back. This is a nice quiet spot in an otherwise crazy and noisy mall.
