I have been to many Nordstrom Cafes before and they are always such a delight. The prices are reasonable, the food is excellent in taste, and the service is impeccable.

Showed up on a Saturday for lunch and the decor and menu had changed. We left! The changes were unappealing.

My wife and I have eaten a number of times at Nordstrom Café in Bethesda, Maryland and Tysons Corners, Virginia. Although a Department Store, the café consistently serves good food at reasonable prices. The cost of lunch or dinner generally runs about $35 for the two of us. The café offers a selection of sandwiches, salads, pastas, and other meals... More

My aunt, my daughter and I stopped in for lunch while shopping at the mall. The restaurant was not busy and it was nice and quiet. Our waiter was friendly and efficient.

Always surprised at how good this Nordstrom Cafe is whenever my wife and I are shopping at Montgomery Mall. While it doesn't ckm ed to mind unless I'm in the store, there is always great food available in a quiet and unhurried atmosphere. Great place to get away from the noise and chaos for a superb meal.

The Nordstrom Cafes are the perfect place to catch your breath in the midst of shopping. The food is excellent and the service is superb. I highly recommend the salads and soup, and be sure to save room for the treat that comes with the check.

Menu is little limited but what they do have is really good. The rosemary chicken with veggies is really good and you get more than expected.

The prices are reasonable, the booths are comfortable, and nobody is trying to rush you. It's best to arrive at about 1:30 PM as the lunch crowd is thinning.

Anytime is a good time for the Nordstrom's cafe. Delicious full breakfast is served all day. Lunch and dinner is always good. Wonderful desserts. Nice selection of drinks including Republic of Tea. Service is outstanding. This is my home away from home place to eat!
