A Dallas institution is back! In a world full of constant change, it is truly lovely to be welcomed back to a Dallas pillar like Zodiac. Quiet, luxurios dining room with beautiful natural light, and superb menu from Chef Sara Toth. My go to getaway for a downtown power lunch, celebration, or just a quiet place to have a solo lunch.
Popovers and strawberry butter help everything. Bravo to NM for keeping that alive. My personal favorite is the pear salad with roasted salmon.
Make sure you opt in to a cold glass of spiced iced tea. Way to go Neiman's!

It’s great that the Zodiac has reopened after a successful and outstanding holiday run during a very challenging period. The menu is very limited for the moment and staffing reflects that. The items that were available are longtime favorites.

The waiter was not very attentive and we had to ask for refills. We wondered why we didn’t get the popovers and consommé that was always offered in the past. This is such a special treat from the restaurant I look forward to. When I asked the waiter he said “ oh you have to ask for that. “. The lettuce was wilted in my salad too. The meal was ok though. I plan to go back and give it another chance.

The Zodiac Room was an elegant place to celebrate my wife’s birthday lunch. The menu featured light entrees which paired well with the legendary ‘popovers’ and strawberry butter - which was delicious! Martha, our server was delightful and provided excellent service! We’re grateful they reopened from the Pandemic while we were visiting Dallas..the Zodiac Room is truly iconic.

A LUNCH AT THE ZODIAC ROOM IN DOWNTOWN DALLAS IS AN EXPERIENCE.
THE STORE ITSELF IS DECORATED SO BEAUTIFUL, A SPECIAL PLACE TO SEE EXPECIALLY AT CHRISTMAS TIME.
THE ENTIRE STAFF AND EMPLOYEES AT NEIMANS MAKE YOU FEEL WELCOME TO
THE FINEST STORE.
ZODIAC, EVEN WITH THE COVID, WAS OUTSTANDING WITH THEIR PRECAUSTIONS FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING.
THE MENU WAS VARIED AND DIFFERENT FROM THE USUAL "HELEN CORBITT" INSPIRED BUFFET OF YEARS PAST; BUT CERTAINLY PLEASING FOR ALL TASTES.
OUR COMPLIMENTS TO CHEF, MATT FOR HIS INNOVATIVE MENU THAT INCLUDED SOME OF OUR "OLD TIME" FAVORITES.
THANKS FOR A MEMORABLE LUNCH FOR OUR OFFICE GROUP THAT HAS BEEN CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS FOR 20 YEARS HERE AT THE ZODIAC.
AND A REPEAT FOR MY 93 YEAR OLD MOM, DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, AND GRAND-DAUGHTER A WEEK LATER. BOTH EXCELLENT!

We love the Zodiac Room downtown, especially during Christmas. While we miss the 25th anniversary buffet, we love going regardless. It did take a bit of time between getting our tea and our food, but we loved it! The tea options were very interesting and led to purchases down on the 1st floor.

After previous stellar buffet events, the yearly holiday luncheon emerged with a number of changes. It was totally prix-fixe and included favorites that were reinterpreted by the chef. It seemed every precaution was being taken to provide a safe dining experience. Fortunately, those present were highly respectful of other diners, a refreshing oasis in a troubled time. The staff deserves accolades for their understated approach.

I look forward to a return to more normal times in the months ahead for the diners and the staff.

Our reservation was for 1:30, we were sat closer to 2. They were out of many items on the menu - including two of the first course items, one entree, and two desserts.

Our first course didn’t come for an hour and a half, and no one seemed bothered by this. When we complained, they decided to bring our sides (that should have gone with our entree course) first and then brought our salads after that. Nothing made sense. I did not want to eat mac and cheese before my salad and would have preferred it with my prime rib.

They did comp two of our four meals and continued to provide us with complimentary champagne for missing the mark in basically every aspect of our meal.

Not the wonderful experience I’ve had at Zodiac room in years past.

It wouldn’t be the Holidays without the famous Zodiac Room lunch! And Neimans did not disappoint. It was socially distanced, felt very safe and the food was amazing. Instead of the holiday buffet, they have a three-course menu, but it starts with a glass of champagne and each course is large and delicious. Highly recommend!

I booked a bridal shower at the last minute after being canceled at another downtown Dallas restaurant. The manager and waitress were very accommodating to our group for our special requests. We arrived at opening and left at closing on Saturday with no pressure turn our table. Best of all, my niece said she thought the shower was better at NM than it would have been at the other restaurant.
