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.

Terrible food and terrible service. I think the whole store has gone down the drain. Pitiful!

I even bought a holiday tree ornament, and when I got it home I took bubble wrap of and it was broken!

Awful experience. Won't go back!

Really disgusted since my realtive works there. No wonder NM is in trouble!

Won't go back to downtown store. NM...Northpark is great!

I treated a friend for lunch and the atmosphere is relaxing and we weren’t rushed so that we could have a nice visit. The server recommended the mandarin orange soufflé on the holiday buffet and it was delicious. All of it was good. Enjoyable time.

we go every year to Zodiac for the holiday buffet. This year we went after the new year and the food seemed limited and was not as wonderful as it has been in the past. I’m really disappointed especially since it is very expensive and we didn’t even go back to the buffet for 3rd or 4th plates as we usually do.

Had a lovely holiday luncheon with family. The service was warm but professional. The variety and quality of the food was wonderful. The presentation was beautiful. We all had one of the specialty cocktails which contributed to a luxurious lazy luncheon.

The prime rib was inferior. Other food was mediocre. The service was excellent. All in all, the quality of the buffet is less than it used to be.

Have come to the Downtown Dallas Neiman Marcus Zodiac Room for their Holiday Buffet.for several years. Large salad and main course buffet with vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options. 3 types of dessert served at the table. Specialty cocktails and wines available. $45.00 includes complimentary valet parking. Wonderful dining experience. And the store is beautifully decorated for Christmas. Need to make reservations well in advance, especially weekends for the Holiday Buffet. They serve regular lunch menu during the year.

My daughters and I enjoyed an after Christmas lunch here. I didn’t realize when I made the reservation it was buffet only. The food was abundant but I prefer plated meals. Service was good; However it was difficult to pinpoint who our server was exactly. I will definitely return but will probably avoid it during the holiday season.

I'm always confident bring guests, but this year I missed former staff and their experienced service.
The menu and food were excellent, but again miss past years creative and delicious presentation and preparation. New chef?

Everything about this visit was incredible. Service, hospitality and a wide array of assorted salads and entrees. This holiday tradition was expanded to include two evening buffets during a shortened holiday season. Jeff and Edgar deserve accolades for the seamless experience. Sylvia and the staff were incredibly accommodating. Bravo!

Neimans knows how to throw a party but the $45 price tag does seem a bit steep. I go every year & love the tradition. Service was a little slow this year & the waiter seemed disinterested, but maybe I’ve just been spoiled in the past .

Lovely tradition at Christmas. Helen Corbett’s recipes for buffet. Only detraction was handing us back our used silverware when plate was picked up to use for next course. Newman’s should be better than that
