They serve off a cart, unlike CO who brings it to you induvidually.
NW prefers it to be served off a cart to keep their service consistant, but some flight crews will bring the meals individaully to you. I don't think it really matters -- I prefer to get my meal quickly so I can fall asleep. If, for example, the flight crew on CO doesn't take your order beforehand, getting your meal can take a long time.
As far as in flight service, the seats are cloth and pitch isn't great.
Pitch varies from aircraft to aircraft. The A320 have wide seats with about 36" pitch -- it's actually pretty good.
