"This is the neighborhood where people seem to know each other and visit this restaurant often. We knew this place from the past but now, with a new owner, it seemed quite different and quality.. not the same. We were able to place a special order for a roasted suckling pig (not available on the menu) but meat was "overcooked" and on a dry side...not to mention that it tasted and looked like a much bigger size specimen. Veal chop Valdostana was very tasty but, again, scallops were on a dry side. May be our memories were stronger then the actual flavor of the dishes, but the place was "packed" and there were many "happy" people enjoying their meal. So, to be fair, I would recommend this restaurant with a reservation."

"Our numerous return and again, we had a nice dinner with a nice wine. NY strip beef was juicy and tender and portions were generous. Attentive service in spite of "crowds". Outdoor seating offered a cozy fireplace to warm up a bit as the night was quite chilly. A definite "yes" to come back."

"On my multiple return I only now discovered that Season 52 offers a special menu between 5pm and 6:30 pm when one can choose from several "small plates" for $5 each (flat bread with steak and Gorgonzola cheese, scallops, chicken, lamb chops, tomato salad) and a "wine taster" to choose from three wines (red or white), also for $5. We tried all small plates, doubled the order on some of them and there was none that we did not enjoy. Place was extremely busy and noisy which was all expected because of this attractive offer. Thumbs up and, a definite return!!"

"On my repeat visit at Mariposa while shopping at the Westchester Mall, I again was amazed how convinient and appealing this restaurant is. Located at Nieman Marcus but with an easy access from the Mall, Mariposa offers a very nice ambience, relaxing atmosphere, versatile menu and a friendly and quick service. The "signature" complimentary pop overs with strawberry butter and a hot broth were offered right away. Then, my "combo" lunch included a cup of excellent crab bisque and a chicken sandwich and, it was served within 10 minutes or so! Completely satisfying and delicious meal and, a definite "come back" for me!"

"It was my first time in Zodiac after its renovation. Ambience is very nice, tables are set apart at a comfortable distance and, butterflies in motions on the walls are really beautiful. Lunch menu has quite a lot to offer. Neiman Marcus's signature pop overs with strawberry butter and hot broth were, as always, delicious and very welcoming. My chicken sandwich "Tuscan" style was very tasty and healthy (included little green and fruit salad) and, portion was quite generous. It is a really nice place to have lunch during shopping at NM, however I would not hesitate to make a small "deviation" from the other parts of this big shopping mall to dine at the Zodiac."

"We came for a Greek dinner and we got it. Cousine consists of typical Greek dishes and there is a variety of them to choose from. However this time, because of the Holidays (it was a day before New Year's), the menu was quite limited, especially in choosing fish dishes. We settled for a Greek salad and grilled octopus which is one of the best that I have had in many years! Greek wine (again limited choice because of the Holidays) compllimented our dinner. We are planning on coming back when the restaurant gets "restocked"."

"Our multiple return and, again, a nice dinner as anticipated. However , this time even though it was late (9pm), place was very busy and service was slow. Flat breads as always were very good but the real "star" of the evening were grilled sea scallops served with risotto. Dishes offered were big in size and nicely presented. Overall, we had a good time except for a very loud music coming from the bar (live) which did not allow us to have a decent conversation."

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"In the midst of my holiday shopping at the Mall, I decided to stop for lunch in this Tuscan Restaurant. I did not expect much except for just having a meal but, to my surprise, it really was a nice dinning. Large menu offered a variety of different options from a hamburger to more sophisticated dishes including sea food and meat and, in spite of "crowds", service was quite quick, efficient and friendly. I had a "simple" hamburger which was very nice, differently spiced and juicy meat with fries that also had a different from ordinary taste. This place is already on my return list."

"Very nice place to get lunch during shopping at the Mall, but not quick... Service was "patchy" due to Holiday crow, however food was quite nice. We ordered an onion soup and crab bisque and, both were very tasty. Warm Asian salad offered a big portion, so we shared but, also... a lot of salt (which we did not like). Overall, nice, warm atmosphere and a spirit of Holidays made it very enjoyable."

"My multiple return for a quick "bite" while shopping at the Mall. My Tuscan chicken melt was tasty and portion was quite generous. Service was quite "speedy" considering that place was very busy. Overall, this was another nice experience and, a definite "come back" for me."
