The Zodiac is a lovely restaurant within Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas. The menu selection is varied and caters to different diets. We ordered a roasted salmon dish and a halibut special, both excellent. Service is exceptional. Highly recommend.

The Zodiac is my "go-to" place for a quiet business lunch. The management is outstanding, service is prompt, courteous and thoughtful, and the food is delicious. Add in the traditional Neiman Marcus special touches - the consumé appartif and the hot popover, and lunch at The Zodiac is truly a special experience. Making it both special and practical is the fact that you can actually have a conversation in the restaurant...something that can't be said for many of the other restaurants in town. Conduct your next business lunch there and see. I highly recommend The Zodiac.

We had a lovely time. Food was interesting and good. I had the lobster bisque, and it was as yummy as any I've ever had, I also had avocado toast - it's more interesting than it sounds, crunchy creamy generous amount of avocado. It was quiet and unhurried on Saturday at lunch time.

Love the traditions of The Zodiac! I went there growing up in Dallas, and had the pleasure of taking my daughter-in-law and two granddaughters on this visit. The girls loved it because it was “fancy”! A very special fancy lunch!

Would definitely recommend. I have been coming here almost 30 years now every once in awhile and it's always wonderful food and service in an elegant setting. My only complaint is there were 2 tables with too loud customers at them and it would have been nice of the staff to request they lower their voices. If I can hear your full conversation across the room about spending daddy's money, you're talking too loud and disturbing my experience. Please be considerate of others when you dine.

The newly renovated Zodiac Room is a special treat for a wonderful Saturday brunch/lunch before shopping.

The dining room regains the original mirrored columns complimented by a display of current fashions in the center aisle. The meal begins with Hellen Corbitt’s delicious chicken consume immediately upon being seated. (She believed guest should be served something immediately when seated to quell a peckish disposition. Shortly after the consumer the delicate, fresh out of the oven, popovers appear accompanied by the signature strawberry butter. Everything on the menu is artfully presented and delicious.

Treat yourself and enjoy the store!

Had lunch at the Zodiac Room to celebrate my special birthday. I was seated immediately and greeted by my waiter almost before I knew it. The service was impeccable and the food was even better. And of course the consumme and popovers are the most special delight of the experience. I’ll be back and bring my daughters next time!

Our waiter, Victor C, was attentive, courteous and very professional. Did not hover but kept our coffee cups & water glasses full. He gave us ample time to visit & enjoy a birthday celebration lunch. He brought a birthday cake plate to my friend & it was very thoughtful . He made for a very nice experience. Thank you.

Wonderful lunch spot. Impeccable service. Noise level is such that you can actually have a conversation. Had lunch with three friends who I see o ly once or twice a year. We had a great meal and the waitstaff didn’t rush us to leave. Couldn’t been more accommodating with beverage refills. I always get the same thing- trio of salads with mandarin orange gelatin. Salmon and chicken dishes got raves also. And who doesn’t love the popovers with compounded butter?

This is a lovely restaurant for a special occasion, date or after-shopping lunch with the girls. The menu is varied with enough choices for every taste, the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Probably the the best thing about the NM cafes and restaurants is the consomme' and popovers with strawberry butter - all are served complimentary as you wait for your meal. Don't miss the chance to enjoy the downtown Dallas location!
