My 16 year old daughter and I had lunch at The Rotunda and had a wonderful experience. The decor is lovely, service is top notch, and food is excellent. We had a booth overlooking the glass dome and enjoyed a classic lunch of complimentary chicken consomme, chicken salad with fruits and lettuces, and their extraordinary popovers with strawberry butter. We... More

There are a number of restaurants around the world which, to me, are not just places to eat but serendipity-filled tourist attractions, and the Rotunda at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco is one of these. If it were better known to the general public, there would be a line stretching for blocks to get in, because the food is excellent,... More

Definitely need reservations and a treat for anyone wanting great service, atmosphere and food. Save room for the hot popovers with strawberry butter that are served upon arrival. Loved the Salmon Salad with fresh peas, artichoke hearts and a delicious, light vinaigrette that was good to the last bite. Great wine list with emphasis on the great wines of California.... More

Recently enjoyed the Hgh Tea in the Rotunda. I frequent tea meals all over the country and this is one of the best. The sandwich and dessert varieties are unique. The scone was particularly tasty. Be sure to make a reservation and say you intend to order Tea as they won't always have it available unless you do. Have fun!

Came here for lunch. Very nice atmosphere and enjoyable. When you are seated they bring out a chicken consume for you to drink. Then each person in your group receives a big piece of bread with strawberry butter to enjoy. You can have high tea here or order a la carte off the menu. We did both. I ordered the... More

I went for lunch, but I hit all the NM restaurants. Love them all. Chicken picatta was awesome. Warm seafood salad was ok, they drowned it in dressing. Definitely ask them to go easy on the dressing. There were 3 grilled shrimp and 3 scallops. A bit pricey for what it is. The lobster egg rolls are good but presentation... More

The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus continues to surprise and delight. When I visit San Francisco now, I try to make time to enjoy lunch here. The restaurant has improved dramatically from the years when I lived in the city. The food is now on par with many of San Francisco's fine dining establishments, and the restaurant's overall cleanliness has made... More

A lovely place for meals with really nice decoration. Ambiance was alright, probably due to the lunch crowd. Best to make reservations if one doesn't want to wait for too long.

The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus is a perfect place to sit down and rest after a long day of shopping. The restaurant is beautiful. It is a lovely place to have tea. They serve these super size Popovers to everyone complimentary. So it's nice to eat light so you can thoroughly enjoy the delicious Popover.
