NM Café - San Diego (FKA Zodiac)
Nice atmosphere. Quiet. Good food
Love our annual tradition that started in the 1980’s in Stanford. Now we enjoy the continuation at Fashion Valley. The food and service rate at the top of my list.
We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. The food was excellent.
This is day after Christmas tradition for me and my daughter! We wouldn’t miss it! The food and service is spectacular - it just a very special place! This year my parents joined us as well!
Birthday lunch with family. It is always special. Thank you.
Our favorite place for special occasions, Every year we celebrate our birthdays. We always feel special and the food is wonderful! We expect to keep this tradition!
Neiman’s is my group’s go-to for any special gathering. We consider it a real treat.
Great food as always. Slower than normal service. Sensed they were down a waiter or 2
Always a great and elegant place to have lunch.
Clyde Van Arsdall arranged a very nice table for us and the servers were fantastic! Thank you !
As having been a patron of Neiman Marcus San Francisco and San Diego restaurants for over 30 years- this was the worst service I’ve ever experienced. The hostess was not attentive and had us seat ourselves. We sat for 15 minutes before having to request water. We then waited for consume for another 7 minutes which came with NO cruet! Then had to request popovers because we continued to sit without service. Finally, our waiter took our order which did come in a timely manner. I had the lobster club which I had ordered 3 weeks earlier at the NM SF restaurant. NM SF’s was significantly better!! Sad that the San Diego restaurant has declined so!
What a delicious Birthday Lunch Celebration. Everything was fabulous incredible desserts. Henry our server was just wonderful. We will definitely return there often
Food was good. Popovers were over baked. We all agreed.
The lunch was fair but very overpriced. I had the half chicken salad sandwich with a cup of lentil soup. The sandwich was very tiny with overly toasted wheat bread and the soup was very bland. My friend had the same only she had the tuna sandwich on a smidgen of a croissant. The only enticing part of the lunch was the demi cup of chicken broth served before lunch. The server was very attentive, the ambiance was moderately comfortable but someone in the dining room had a small dog in a stroller which frequently yipped out loud. A dog (NOT A SERVICE DOG) allowed in the restaurant??? Please think of the other patrons trying to dine without having to listen to a yipping dog. I will definitely eat elsewhere next time I go to the mall...very disappointing.
Have been going to Zodiac for years and love love it - always the most polite and wonderful service
Sophisticated atmosphere with excellent bistro-like fare. The service was friendly and attentive, but not rushed. The smoked salmon pizza had goat cheese with white sauce on flatbread. A simple spinach salad was served on the side. It was fresh with complex flavors.
A hidden gem; reliable excellent food and service
Menu caters to many tastes and my guest is always amazed
Many have been in the store and never knew such a treasure was on the top floor!
Always a treat!
Limited menu and a little pricey. Have you eaten there many times and I always found the food to be very good. It’s a very relaxing room and certainly worth experiencing if you haven’t been there before.
The food, the service and the ambiance were all great. I had lunch with a friend I don’t get to see that often and we were there for 2 hours and the waiter never rushed us.
We each had the crab cake starter which came with a small salad and it was the perfect lunch. If you want to dine in classy place with good food this is where to go. Also they bring you wonderful chicken bouillon and a giant popover as starters.
Definitely a place to go to, to celebrate a special occasion, or to just treat yourself.
The waitstaff are friendly and accomodating.
We asked for a quiet table and they went out of their way to get us seated at a perfect table off to ourselves. Tony was our server and he was sophisticated, attentive and exceptional. He never once barged into our conversation like so many do to needlessly inquire "is everything alright?" We never had to ask for or wait for anything. There is a nice upscale list of affordable wines by the glass and the amuse bouche consomme is always hot, rich and satisfying and I defy you to resist Neiman's signature popovers with strawberry butter! We all had delicious, creative and healthy salads for our entrees. One of us was having a birthday. Tony brought out an amazing piece of chocolate 3 layer cake filled with a light chocolate mousse for us to share. It was the chef's special creation and it was to die for. All in all, we love the Zodiac. It is quiet so you can have a conversation, there is ample and easy parking on the second level and the food and service is wonderful. The only unfortunate thing was the front reception left one of our ladies sitting in the entrance and never asked her name, or who she was meeting, so if one of your parties is running a bit late, you'd better check the reception area on occasion.
I always enjoying dining with my friends at the Zodiac Restaurant. The food is great. For the last few times, I had the Salmon tacos - these are exceptional. The staff is outstanding - from the hostess to the wait staff. The chef came out to make sure we were enjoying our meal, and thanked us for being there and invited us back. It was a wonderful dining experience. Thank you!
Everything was very good although my soup wasn’t hot. Could have sent it back but didn’t.
It was a lovely afternoon spent with my friend. always a treat to eat at the Zodiac!
Our special girlfriend birthday celebration place. We feel so special, relaxed, never rushed. Outstanding food and service! We will continue to frequent for our special occasions.
We often have Tony as our waiter; he’s wonderful, as is all the staff there. Food is delicious, and beautifully presented. Quiet and very relaxing atmosphere. A hidden gem in busy Fashion Valley.
Zodiac is so reminiscent of the classic lunch room in bygone eras complete with very attentive wait staff and old timey details like a fantastically delicious chicken broth appetizer accompanied by a perfect popover and scrumptious fruit butter. This is my second time to this restaurant and I ordered the chicken and pesto sandwich. Sadly, it fell short of my expectations. The chicken was really overcooked, to the point it was inedible and the sandwich was stacked so high, I should have taken it outside to take a bite! Very messy and way too thick. But the service was excellent and I really like the ambience.
It was quiet and the service was really nice!!
The extras were an added bonus. They included popover with special butter, broth before the meal and a complimentary birthday cake.
Thank you Zodiac for a lovely time!
A longtime family friend was wedding dress shopping and we took an intentional stop for a nice lunch at The Zodiac. It was a perfect stop-by during a delightful and lovely day.
Always an enjoyable experience. Manager Clyde is extraordinary.
Thank you for this hidden Jewel in Neiman Marcus. Excellent Service. The pre-lunch Popover with Strawberry Butter & Consume cup a lovely touch. Excellent Waiter & bus boy. Fun to meet and chat with Chef Clyde.
Hope Zodiac will stay for everyone to enjoy! Such a great place and convenient. Best for meeting friends and families! Staffs are so friendly and professional!
I have always looked forward to lunch at NM Zodiac room, but when I took my guest this past Tuesday I was very disappointed The traditional popovers arrived, but they were one short for our table of 3 . they were over baked also Then my guest ordered the salmon pizza It arrived very over cooked I wanted to send it back, but my guest did not want me to cause a scene. I don't know what was wrong with the kitchen that day, but it was not up to standard. I will not want to gamble taking someone back for a while I was disappointed in the quality.
Both food and service were a standout here. Not for everyone- but definitely a nice place to enjoy lunch while treating yourself to a day of shopping.
Tony’s our server is always great and kindly attentive.
The food is excellent, the servers are always very attentive. The whole staff there knows how to treat their guests so that they want to return, like we do every month for our Sunday catch up. The popovers are incredible :)
The menu and food is tired. Time for an update.
We had the salmon flat bread. Imagine that offering is in fact an update. But it was dry and uninspired.
I’ve been eating lunch here for 20+ years. Hope you all will invest in the place.
