I've eaten here before but many, many years ago. This time around, I came with two sisters. We started our meal with the consomme, warm popover and berry butter. My sister ordered the nicoise. My other sister and I split the flat iron steak sandwich (special of the day) and Chinese chicken salad. I liked it that the server already... More

I had lunch with my family, and we all enjoyed very much! The appetizers were delicious, and our lunch was excellent. The waiters are very friendly. Make reservations, as it gets packed during lunch hours.

I live in Northern California, I mean way north of San Francisco, 285 Miles north actually. So we come to "the city" ever so often. I always begin my shopping a Neiman's on Union Square at the Chanel counter where Rocky Zion works his magic for me. That's always followed my my trip up four flights of escalators to The... More

The Rotunda is my favorite lunch place at Union Square. The food is delicious. The popovers are served with strawberry butter; they are well known for them. The restaurant is at the top of the building right under the huge vintage skylight. It is gorgeous, unusual and special. Remember that this stylish restaurant is at the top of Neiman Marcus....

We dine at the Rotunda every New Years morning. This year we went to the restaurant twice as we enjoyed it so much. The view is fun, overlooking Union Square. The service is the best. The "puffy pastry" with strawberry butter is incredible. Every meal and the service are excellent. Highly recommend it.

The setting is lovely with white tablecloths, beautiful napkin rings, and cordial wait servers. visited twice in a week (Christmas and New Year's Eve) tried the salmon dish with farrow 1st time, very good. My daughter had hamburger, nicely presented and... More

With a l:15 reservation for lunch, we were kept waiting for a table until approximately 2 p.m. The hostess said they didn't know how long people would be staying at a table. (After many years, the restaurant should have a general idea of how long tables would turn over.) When we finally got seated (Yes, we were kept standing waiting... More
