This is a smallish place that provides good food and service. The smallness makes it unusual and it is not loud and noisy like so many other Walnut Creek restaurants that are big.

The only thing good about this particular Neiman Marcus are the popovers. The rest of it can't compare to the one on Union Square.

I think this place is over rated! It has no views, over priced and extremely small...Because it is open to the shopping area, it smells food as you get closer to the cafe inside the store . I don't think they have a good ventilation system .

This one is more like a cheap diner than a restaurant. I have nothing good to say about it. It's sad because I do so love the Rotunda.

I met a friend for lunch and we ordered a burger, salad and lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was very good but the burger and salad were just your average burger and salad.

We just made it to the afternoon tea at the NM cafe in Neiman Marcus with a few minutes to spare. This is the most friendliest, elegant and delightful little cafe for high tea. The amazing mouth-watering popover with the famous strawberry butter and a demitasse consommé were our surprise 'freebies'. The smooth, velvety hot chocolate, the aromatic capuccino and... More

First we had to wait 30 minutes for a table even though there were tables open. We went back to check 15 minutes later and they still had not cleaned off several four tops which we needed for a party of three. We would have gone elsewhere at this point, but were famished and loved Neiman Marcus cafe's in Dallas... More
