About Zodiac at Neiman Marcus – Downtown Dallas
For over 50 years, the Zodiac at Neiman Marcus in the Downtown Dallas location has been the place to dine in Dallas. Housed on the 6th floor of the flagship store, Stanley Marcus first conceived this restaurant as a convenience for out of town customers who were spending a full day shopping in the store.
Today, the Zodiac enjoys the same popularity for shoppers and non-shoppers alike. Enjoy all of the classics from our early days or find some new favorites. We welcome you with chicken broth and our signature popover with strawberry butter. Try a cocktail from our full bar or sip a glass of wine from our extensive winelist. Our lunch selections range from soups and salads to sandwiches. Or choose a beautifully plated entrée. Finish your meal with a housemade pastry and a hot cappuccino.

Food was good as always.. Service was poor for the Zodiac Room. Server said popovers would be right there.. 30 minutes later we recieved them but then no strawberry butter... had to ask for that! Service was very very slow. Our Reservations for 7 was at 12:15... we were finally leaving at 3!
A first timers treat
This was my first time at the Zodiac Room and I hope it will not be my last. The room is very attractive and the noise level was perfect. The opening Demitasse of chicken broth and cheese biscuit paved the way for a fine lunch served beautifully. Our server, Victor helped us with suggestions and was most attentive without being obtrusive. Making the meal even more pleasant was a fashion display with a lovely young model wearing several attractive dresses and furs. The dessert was a fine finale to a truly enjoyable meal.
A special occasion requires a special restaurant, and the Zodiac Room definitely fits that description!

I have lived in Dallas for thirty six years and never visited the Zodiac Room. I was so looking forward to a beautiful experience to celebrate Mother’s Day with my daughter. I have eaten at most of the higher end restaurants in Dallas and was very disappointed with my meal. Both my daughter and I ordered a salad and it was average at best. With two salads and one glass of champagne my bill was $80.00.I could have gone to many other restaurants in Dallas and had a much better means for a lot less. The service was also mediocre. I have to say I was very disappointed. Mary B
Awesome place for a special occasion Lunch!
Second time here to celebrate a friend's 20th work Anniversary. Great grilled Salmon with Asparagus. The traditional Popover was delicious and outstanding service. They even created a special Happy Anniversary Dessert plate! I just wish that they were open for dinner!

Great time with my Mom! Good was excellent, service was even better.
My college daughter and I met for a "ladies lunch" at The Zodiac - just as I had with my Grandma many years ago. The Zodiac was a special place then as it still remains today. Excellent food coupled with attentive service and beautiful surroundings.

Beautiful setting and plating. I ordered the soy glazed scallops, which where very tasty along with a glass of Rosé. My wine had lent floating on the inside and stuck to the outside of my glass. My waiter responded and promptly replaced it. The poppers were welcoming, yet seemed a bit cold as the butter never melted. I did not care for the cold chicken broth offered. The Maitre'D was well polished and brought a copy of Dallas Luxury Edition Magazine for me to view while I waited. Very classy. I will be giving the Zodiac another try, I see the potential.
LUNCH AT ZODIAC
Everyone should have the experience of The Zodiac. It has an understated elegance with soothing colors and the atmosphere makes me feel like I am stepping back to a time when people enjoyed true dining. This is where I like to take someone for a special occasion; especially when they have never been there. My friend had the Tuscan Grilled Chicken Melt, which she said was delicious. I had the Vegetable Wrap and mine was equally delicious. The service was just right; not annoying as many restaurants are.

Nice dining experience!
Nice dining experience. Great food and good service. I love the chicken broth as a light appetizer. The salads are great and my guest loved the pot roast. I also liked the ease of scheduling reservations online and being sent a confirmation immediately. I only wish you all had a choice for gluten free bread to go with the meal.
Like coming home
Had not been there in sometime and it was wonderful to still have on the menu things I had enjoyed thru out my lifetime. Our server was fantastic and the food and mimosas were very good. Lunch was a really special event for my group. Thanks for keeping traditions.

4 Ladies Who LOVE 2 Lunch!
My favorite Aunt, whose name is Flurdie, is getting married very soon, and I wanted to take her out to a very nice lunch, and just celebrate her happiness. I already knew the Zodiac would definitely be the place for that celebration! My mother, Martha, and cousin Renicka also dined with us. The service was nothing shy of excellent! Martha was the name of the awesome lady who waited on us! She made us feel so very welcome, and made sure we ordered something we would really enjoy. My cocktail, Honey Dragon Margarita, was simply smashing and quite delicious! We all had some very tasty gumbo. My mom ordered the tuna sandwich; my aunt ordered the juicy pot roast; my cousin ordered a chicken sandwich, and I had salmon over a bed of pasta! Dessert was the bomb!!! We had carrot cake, lemon cake, and warm apple crostada with gelato! We LOVED everything we ate! Thanks, Martha, and the Zodiac for making it a day we shall never forget! We will see you again, next month for lunch! Thank You, Taffeta

A memorable lunch!
This is a spectacular place to enjoy a memorable lunch. The Zodiac has been delighting diners for 60+ years and it still does today. Both tradition and avant garde dining are celebrated (perhaps even lionized) here. The quiet elegance is rarely experienced today. Lunch here is absolutely delightful!
I love the Zodiac room and would have given my review 5 stars, but my red snapper special was overcooked. It was very flavorful, however, hence the 4 stars.
Nice place, great food
While a little on the expensive side, food and service was great. We ordered the pot roast and filet (I think). Both real tasty. A little disappointed that the Christmas decorations were already taken down. That was one of the reasons we went but it's our own fault for waiting so long to reserve a table. Over all great spot
Amazing Holiday Buffett
Was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon one of Dallas' best kept secrets. The Zodiac Room features an awesome buffet all day/every day between the day before Thanksgiving and December 31 every year. You will want to show up hungry and bring all your friends and family. I'm going to make this an annual holiday tradition.
Food was good service was great -needs renovation
Service was perfect. They were only serving a buffet lunch while we were there and most items were great but the lamb was horrible and should have been pulled off the table. Interior is very tired and desperately needs to be painted and deep cleaned. Certainly not what you expect at NM. Sad to see it was in such bad shape.
Great holiday buffet
A great choice for a post Christmas lunch and to see a wonderful institution in downtown Dallas!
The holiday buffet is always generous and fun. The food is excellent, and then we walk it off looking at the decorations at the downtown store. It is a tradition for me. I look forward to it every year.
It's not Christmas Eve yet!
On Wed, Dec 2 they only offered a "Holiday Buffet" at $42.00! We expected to order off the menu and did not want that much food, nor pay that price. The place was 75% empty as a result.
A holiday must do!
Each year a co-worker and I make it a point to partake in the wonderful Holiday buffet that the Zodiac room has in December. We have birthdays a day apart and this not only makes them special for us, but also starts off our holiday the right way! If you're worried about price, this may not be the place for you. But the selection is amazing and you can't beet the popovers, and the 3 cheese mac/cheese is killer good!
Zodiac restaurant never disappoints. They always have great food and service.
The holiday brunch offers a buffet with a great selection of salads, meats, and vegetables. Everything was excellent. The entrees included prime rib, turkey and dressing, lamb, and roast beef. There were five or six salads, along with all the traditional holiday vegetables and side dishes. The service was great as well. I can definitely see why this is a holiday tradition for many families. The only disappointing thing about the meal was the dessert selection. They brought out a small plate that included a lemon square, a chocolate muffin, m & ms, caramel popcorn, jelly beans, and a couple of cookies. None of it was good and with the caliber of the food being served, it seems they could do a much better job with the desserts. The buffet is $42 for adults and $15 for kids under 10.
This year, much to my dismay, I quickly realized that the food was certainly not up to parr, the service slow and the ambience completely gone amuck due to lackadaisical management. When I spoke to the manager on duty to ask why another guest was allowed to wear his hat while eating, I was basically told that it was because "times had changed," and there was nothing he could do and then I was completely dismissed. Really? Rest assured, I can name several other lesser known restaurants in Dallas that have not allowed "changing times" to lower standards and will not allow men to wear hats while eating. I look forward to developing a new holiday seasonal tradition by dining in a different Dallas restaurant whose management is not afraid to maintain a modicum of propriety, respected etiquette and delectable food. Sincerely, Former Patron
We had a great time. The food is outstanding with a great atmosphere. It is a great place to take out of town visitors for lunch. Our business guests always enjoy the experience. Do not pass on the chocolate chip cookies.
This is one of the most excellent, consistently high quality dining experiences in Dallas----------too bad it is not open evenings!!! You feel spoiled by the wait staff; blessed by the chef; and totally comfortable in your surroundings without having to scream for your dining partner to hear you! If only there were more Zodiacs out there----------and, again, open at night!

Great brunch before bridal dress shopping at Nieman's. Service was friendly, and attentive but not overbearing. The popovers and chicken broth alone are worth the trip! Fun people watching - there was a very southern chic bridal shower when we were there.
Beautiful Birthday Lunch
Everything is exquisite and beautifully presented here. The food is wonderful and the entire meal is a wonderful event. Highly recommend on any special occasion.
Always a winner
Took my family for lunch here for my mother's 80th birthday. Everyone loved the ambiance, food, and service. This destination never disappoints. I do work lunches here too.
