“Consistent, quality food every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The food is not fancy, but what they serve, they do well. Chicken pasta rosa is always good as is the cream of crab soup on Friday in season. Salads are excellent and don't pass up on the Tiramisu or Royale cookie.

Service is typical of Nordstrom employees - above and beyond exceptional.

When in doubt or staying @ The Bolger Center not far away where the food is awful, stop by Nordstrom cafe.

“Quiet spot to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

The Cafe is a nice spot to eat lunch away from the hustle of the food court. The menu has many healthy choices and the food is fresh and delicious.

“Well kept secret.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

If you know Montgomery Mall, you know you don't have a lot of choices. This is the restaurant I go to above all others. The food is a good deal and relatively delicious.

Try their steak or salmon nicoise salad.

This is a location where you see a lot of families, so if you don't like noise or children, go somewhere else.

“My little secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

My 16 year daughter and always look forward to going to mall and taking time out to go to the Nordstrom Cafe. It is a bit of a respite from the frenzied mall eateries with good service and good food. I always get the salmon with roasted potatoes and vegetables. My daughter loves the pasta, salads and their cookies and brownies. Recently my book club met there as well- and had a great time- drinking herbal tea and eating dessert. Quite a treat... I think my secret is out
