Every bite was excellent!

It's not often that you enjoy every morsel of your meal, but that was my experience. I had the shrimp & asparagus risotto and the shrimp were abundant, the asparagus cooked to perfection and the rice was creamy and flavorful.

The restaurants in the mall are quite busy during prime times, but usually if you go here during peak hours there is little or no wait to sit down. They have fabulous desserts too!

I usually enjoy Nordstrom, quiet and delicious, but not today. First things first... the food never disappoints. I had the cilantro lime chicken salad and it is incredible. Seriously, try it!! The service though.... I'm not sure what actually happened. Tim was our server. He presented drinks then entrees... then promptly parked himself at a table (not assigned to him)... More

The Mall is a busy place, and Nordstrom provides a sophisticated retreat, from the maddening crowd. A student of people, or just an ardent people-watcher, will enjoy the location of this cafe.

This is truly the hidden gem at the Mall of America, it is tucked away on the third floor of Nordstroms, and the food is really good, nicely presented and served by a very professional staff. The salads are to die for and they poor the best drip coffee in the entire mall if not most of the MSP area.... More

I have eaten here many times and find consistent good food and service. Bathrooms are the best for MOA. Salads, flatbread pizzas and soup are all recommended. The Salads are the best items. Yesterday we had the shrimp salad and the cilantro lime chicken. Both were very good! You place an order as you enter, select a table and your... More

I ordered the Chinese Chicken salad which was really good. I also ordered the Lemon Ricotta cookie. I was a bit hesitant because I was not sure about the ricotta. I am glad I ordered it because I turned out to be one of the best lemon desserts I have ever had. The cookie was topped with a lemon buttercream... More

Nordstrom Cafe is relaxing, staff friendly and food is always prepared exactly how you like it in just minutes. I always enjoy popping by to take a quick break while shopping and am never disappointed. Even ordering something hot to go works!

I met a friend for dinner. Had the pasta with artichoke. Really priced well for a store cafe. Will return again!
