This was my first time here. The staff is incredible, the rotunda is stunning, and the appetizers are delicious! We sat at the champagne bar and loved every minute!

Make certain you make a reservation far enough in advance to request a window seat. The view is enjoyable of Union Square. Upon being seated you are served a small tea cup of chicken consommé and cheese biscuit. Then comes their wonderful popovers with strawberry butter. The menu consists of soups, salads, sandwiches and main selections. They are known for... More

We always try to take Tea at Neiman Marcus when in the City. It never disappoints. The service is perfect and the food is delicious. The popovers and strawberry butter are out of this world. Do order the Grand Tea and enjoy champagne with your goodies. If you cannot finish your treats, they have the cutest take away boxes for... More

The Rotunda is a respite from the crowds around Union Square. My friend and I actually drove up just to have the lobster club sandwich - not exactly dietetic, but absolutely delicious. Lunch always starts with a tiny cup of chicken consomme and a cheese biscuit nibble, then a popover with strawberry butter. Lunches range from grilled fish, lots of... More

I was first at the Rotunda eighteen years ago with a girlfriend while visiting The City; and things have not changed much. This time I came with my parents. The fun atmosphere and the lovely stained-glass dome and gilt mouldings keep your attention darting here and there. The food is still as good as ever. I had the brisket sandwich,... More

Although we hadn't made a reservation, we had a table with the lovely view on Union square. The atmosphere is fantastic! And so was the food. It is not cheap, but wat would you expect in such an evironment? It was worth every cent.

Love the place. We got a table in exactly one hour. The waitress was really friendly and gave us some good suggestions. The seating area is just lovely and relaxing. The food tasted sooooo good. I personally had the quinoa pasta. It was the best pasta I ever had in my life. I loved it. If you are planning to... More

I've probably had lunch at over 20 Neiman Marcus' around the country. None of them has a dining room with such a spectacular setting as this one. But none of the other Neiman Marcus restaurants have a check in staff that is as pissy and as rude as this one. The maître d' and check in staff were judgmental, rude... More

Come here for the amazing views and perfect service. This landmark restaurant is worth the price. The food was great, but I expect my daughters will most remember the complimentary hot popovers and strawberry jam. My girls felt like high royalty because of the attentive servers and fancy atmosphere. We kept joking that it was a "pinkies up" event.
