Kids enjoyed their fruit drinks & my iced coffee drink was also enjoyed. Sizes & prices were pretty fair. Good customer service.

It use to be a great deal better, and compared to most Nordstoms was a way better then average lunch. Portions are getting smaller, and not as tasty as i recall. It's convenient if you're waiting on alterations or taking a break. But I'm disappointed in what its become. Took far to long to prepare btw. I guess if you... More

Definitely NOT the high standards as Nordstrom's Blue Stove restaurants! You have to order and pay at the front desk/counter before sitting down. The woman (Jovita) who "helped" us was THE rudest person! We asked her how large the Chinese Chicken Salad was so we would know how much food to order. She was very rude and asked us what... More

Remember that Broadway song about "the ladies who lunch"? We expand that to include gentlemen as well, then BOTH OF YOU plan to dine at Cafe Nordstrom in the eponymously named high-end department store. Wonderful as The Galleria Mall is, sometimes pickings are just a bit slim, unless you want to pay in three figures at the lovely Oceanaire or... More

This was an incredible dining experience! I would call it upscale dining. Will definitely go back when in town! A bustling atmosphere, attentive staff - it was packed, yet our meal came in a very reasonable amount of time. Even if you aren't going to shop in the mall, it's well worth going here just to eat!

So many choices to eat a quick lunch and this was a big surprise! The French Onion Soup is one of the best! Highly recommend. The club with green beans is also very good! Friendly service and very timely.

We've been here several times over the last couple of years and usually felt we were at a nice restaurant with good food and drink and nice service. This time it felt like a franchise restaurant you go to when you have few choices. The only things good were our waitress and the crab bisque. Sent back my bloody mary;... More

I went to the Nordstrom Cafe twice over the last week. The 1st time I tried their special which was the Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. It comes on a sweet roll. The 2nd time they had run out of the sweet roll bread so I had to have it on a ciabatta roll. Unfortunately, they didn't tell me when I ordered... More

My uncle works close by and loves this place, so met him for our first time there after shopping that morning. They were having problems with their computers so it took a little bit to order, which you do as you first walk in. It's open seating but once seated immediate waiter was there to get our drinkings, which he... More
