FYI Just to let you know, we ONLY got dessert. This is based on that alone. When we arrived, the waitresses that seated us informed the other waiter that he was up and we were only getting dessert and he couldn't hide his disappointment. We order Creme Brulee & Crepe Normandie (both are my favorites) along with Lattes. The Creme... More

Ask for a seat near the fireplace. Had one of the early dining specials (5-6:30)--soup or salad, main course, and dessert for $28. Excellent value-good food, pretty presentation. Crowded, but easy to hear our friends. Would definitely make a return visit.

I have walked by Cafe Normandie several times over the years, but with lots of options in Annapolis, it was never a top choice. Saw a Groupon for it, and figured it was a good chance to give it a try. My husband and I went on a weeknight. It was actually relatively busy. I have read several reviews about... More

Located right on Main Street but inside you don't hear the hustle/bustle. Fantastic crepes and desserts. Ok, the cocktails and wine were great too.

Charming dining with some special dishes.We have eaten dinner here twice with outstanding sea bass and seafood selections. They have an early bird special menu with more reasonable priced items.

This is my families favorite French restaurant. It is much better than the other French place on the other side of town. We have eaten here 4 times, which is alot considering we live in NJ, and there are so many place's to eat. Everything is excellent about this place from food to ambiance.

When we visited Cafe Normandie, our experience got off to a slow start as the server did not greet us for a while. The hostess tried to make up for it by bringing water and letting us know that bottles of wine were half the regular price. When our server did come by, we ordered the country pate (excellent) to...

We went one night and enjoyed it as much as we did last year. We made reservations for 6 for the next night and took some friends. The service was great as was the food. Everyone seemed to like what they had. We enjoyed sitting at a round table with our friends, great for conversing.

We had a party of 10 on a Saturday night during Boat Show. The appetizers (baked Brie with almonds & honey, Escargot, & artichoke with crab) were excellent. The food was fresh, the wine was priced well, and the service was traditionally French :-)

The ambiance is very attractive---like a restaurant in a French province. The service was a bit on the slow slide but the food was quite good. I had Trout Amandine, which came with an appetizer and a dessert as a special for $27. Also had some wine making the total over $50. This place is within a 5-minute walk of... More
