A surprise was missing the cheese biscuits that were always served with the lunch intro broth. Missed it! Otherwise the same excellent quality we have enjoyed over the years.

We had a great server who offered for us to stay as long as we wished because the table wasn’t needed. Great for visit with old friends.

Please stay!

This place never ceases to please us all. This particular visit (because we meet more often there now) we included another friend, and she was amazed at what a hidden gem this restaurant is. The service by Ceasar was impeccable. He was constantly checking in with us, as was the host (a woman, her name escapes me). The food, including the wonderful popovers, was exceptional. Nice portions and flavor for each of our different choices. I look forward to our next meet up.

We have been going to NM every December 26th for at least 15 years for a nice lunch and then do some after Christmas shopping. It always feels special.

My second time there and I went to take my husband as he wasn't with me the first time. The food is delicious and the waitstaff wonderful. We had a therapy dog (7 pounds) and they treated us in a most respectful way.

Really, the food quality has gone downhill in the last couple of years. And it's wildly overpriced!
It's still "kind of" pretty, but needs sprucing up.
I gather for lunch occasionally with girlfriends because it "seems" special, but with those prices, and pretty mediocre food, and decor that's becoming a bit used-looking...will probably meet elsewhere until they get their act together at Zodiac.

Always a great place to have lunch. We were a group of 7 and they forgot the small cup of chicken consume' and I had to ask for it. Came during our meal. Forgot one person's water. Overall non attentive and not happy with the service. They had already added in a 20% tip which I wouldn't have given.

We went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and it is always a special meal. We had the trout which was prepared perfectly. It is enough for two people. The mini cup of soup and the popovers with strawberry butter are fantastic. Lovely meal.

Delightful lunch with a friend. Our go to place for a group of five as well as the table for two occasionally. The entree of fish, mashed potatoes and green beans was delicious. Holiday cocktail to kick off the season.

Great healthy foods choices with good wine list. I’m not fan of tomato soup but their tomato soup was yummy.

Henry continues to be a star Server for me. This is my 3rd time to Zodiac in 2 months, and will continue to be a Sunday lunch spot for special occasions and the like. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. The ambiance is great, and does not disappoint. Already have our next Sunday lunch planned, can't wait. Would be remiss in not mentioning the very tasty popovers. YUM.

Wonderful service. I was able to get the soup and sandwich and they tailored the sandwich for me. Loved the kids menu. My daughter is quite tired of sliders, chicken nuggets and spaghetti for kids so it was nice to have a menu that gave her healthy, tasty choices.

Had a quiet lunch enabling two busy women to have a conversation. The salmon tacos were perfect and our server was very polite and unintrusive!

I am becoming a regular. I only recently learned of this gem from a friend who invited me here a few weeks ago. I told another friend about it, and we met here for another Sunday lunch. When we arrived, there was just a few other people seated, and it remained this pleasant number by the time we left. The peaceful atmosphere coupled with attentive server and staff, makes this a new go-to favorite. We started with the complimentary small cup of soup, which was very tasty. We each had a popover, which was fresh out of the oven, and so good! I ended up ordering the same chicken milanese dish, because the first time was so memorable. The flavor and presentation was excellent. We were there to celebrate my birthday (earlier this month) and my friend celebrates hers in November, so we have reservations to return then. I plan to (of course) visit a few times in between. Such a hidden gem. You will not be disappointed.

I always enjoy Zodiac at Neimans. I usually go with my girlfriends. I take my mother-in-law there also because she can hear the conversation since it is on the quieter side--she has a hearing impairment.
The service is always excellent with very good food. And you can always shop a little on the way out OR in if you like.
