NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus - Oakbrook
We were there to celebrate a Birthday. We had a wonderful time. We were not rushed and our server and staff were attentive and they made sure we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend a meal with them.
Worst meal ever had an NM Cafe. Terrible service, cold popovers, salmon was hammered. It was a birthday celebration and we had to leave before dessert because the service was so bad. Couldn’t even get a cup of coffee!
It was to celebrate a friends birthday.
Our server was terrible.My daughter and I dine regularly when she comes in from NYC. The food is good and consistent. However, we arrived at 1:45pm on a Friday and the dining room was a mess. Dirty tables everywhere. The young woman clearing the tables was clearly “high,” making several trips with one glass? The hostess did not know what to do do. The waiter took 25 minutes to approach our table. We ordered immediately. Several tables walked in and were served 20 minutes before us. What the heck? Then, our waiter brought us the wrong food?
It finally worked out and of course, our meals were spot on !Thank goodness we were not in any rush but we arrived 1:45 and left at 3:30! The waiter apologized and said, “Please accept dessert on the house ?” Okay, we ordered 2 NM choc chip cookie to go.
I tipped him 20% thinking he tried. NOT!😡The chocolate chip cookies were BURNT, placed in a special box. Really?
We have dined here even when it was Zodiac Cafe in the lower level. So disappointed. We were so upset looking forward to the cookies and they were clearly dark brown and burnt. I would not recommend dining here until they get their act back together.
I love coming here for a relaxing lunch. It's become my "happy place"
Our waiter was very accommodating. The hostess promptly and cheerfully relayed a message to me about the delay of my dining partner, which I appreciated.
Love the ambiance and the conversation-friendly Cafe!!
Perfect place to meet your favorite friends. Delicious food and drink. Thank you for moving out of the basement!
Love the staff.
Came for the popovers and strawberry butter but the whole experience was wonderful:-)
It’s a nice place for lunch at the mall with better scenery than most places. The salads and the tacos with shrimp were good. Lots of drink choices and the coffees are great. Service was good as well.
We had a wonderful luncheon. Very relaxed, no rushing us out.
One of my most favorite restaurants in Oak Brook for meeting friends for lunch! Lovely service,atmosphere and wonderful food and I must mention those wonderful fresh baked popovers which they serve with strawberry butter!!!
Food and service outstanding; staff very professional.
I had a glass of white wine for $12 with my lunch. It was a small pour for such a price. That is why I could not give a full five star review . I still tipped our waitress generously.
Very bright and cheerful setting. The service is always wonderful. I take friends and family for lunch to celebrate birthdays. NM always makes the occasion lovely.
Normally I love my experience at NM cafe .. The staff and service are great . The menu though is ever changing and getting smaller and smaller with less options and the prices seem to be going up .
Great lunch choices. The salads are good and so are the sandwiches. We had the trio salad and tuna melt and they were great. I enjoyed the spiced iced tea. Great service and nice to escape from the busy mall!
Always a pleasure to dine at NM Cafe! It's a must when shopping at Oak Brook. The service is impeccable and the quality of the food cannot be beat.
The light-filled cafe has such a fresh ambiance. The food was promptly served and very tasty. My friend and I lingered for hours while the wait staff repeatedly filled our water and offered further refreshments without making us feel we were overstaying our welcome. Lovely experience.
Not a large selection of food. Minimal choices. The popovers are the best though. The food is good but not a lot of options.
All around delightful experience! Fabulous food and service!
First time going here and were very happy we went. The service was outstanding (Filepe) and the food was great. Meatloaf was made with Turkey and it was a big portion, I was expecting a small portion for the price so I was pleasantly surprised. Will definitely go back a definite hidden Gem to say the least. Didn't even know it was there!
Very disappointed in our experience. Have come for special birthday lunches and always been
Perfect. Everything was poor this time.
Not sure I’ll be back for a bit.
We had lunch. The fish tacos were a bit over cooked. Service was outstanding.
The setting is lovely; I only wish that they offered a good burger in their menu
We had a lovely time. The food and service were very good. We did not feel rushed. And were very well attended to.
Nice touch with the popovers with strawberry butter and a small cup of chicken consommé before ordering. Had the quinoa salad with shrimp, very good altho not crazy about the green goddess dressing.
Service was excellent, all in all a great spot for lunch.
Awesome place for a ladies birthday celebration ! Great service and food !
A perfect place to meet in Oakbrook for Lunch!!! Plus they start you out with one of their signature popovers!!! 5*’s
This cafe is a must for lunch. Friendly service with terrific food that begins with a wonderful cup of hot broth.
Always v good! Just took a while to get the bill so tough fir business lunch!
The popovers are so good and the salmon tacos were great too. Our server was excellent! Champagne was great and the coffee was as well! I really like this restaurant.
Lovely ambience, terrific staff, lovely menu for ladies who lunch (no steaks!). I wanted to order the crab burger but was told that Chef said it was not available. That was disappointing. Ordered the trio salad. It was excellent but more food than I wanted and I couldn't finish it. I would come again in a heartbeat. Forgot to mention it was a friend's B-Day and I requested a birthday treat. Lovely chocolate cake slice was served. I tasted (don't do desert). It was excellent and she loved it. She took home leftovers.
Great food prompt service loved it!
Nice place to have lunch with old friends. Salads are always very good; service impeccable!
Wonderful ambiance, amazing service by Jorge, delicious food. Never felt rushed & was able to enjoy a wonderful visit with family
Delicious , healthy, creative food. Attentive service.
Always great! The cake was special!
5 stars all the way. Popovers, food, and service all outstanding. A hidden gem in Oak Brook
