Friday Night dinner

This place oozes charm. We had a table for two on the balcony on a rainy Friday evening. The food was good and the servers very attentive. They do have an indoor fireplace with surrounding tables, but it was a bit too warm to "fire" it up.

This restaurant is an easy walk from the Capitol buildings. The atmosphere is comfortable and the staff was very good. An enjoyable meal. The menu has breakfast options at lunch.

We live in Annapolis and had not been to Cafe Normandie in years. We remembered it as good and our recent return visit did not disappoint. We selected from the 3-course early dining menu -- my wife's Trout Almondine was deliciious, though she thought the buttery sauce was a bit over-salted (YMMV). I had the beef bourguignon and could not... More

Went there on a Tuesday evening. Not crowded of course. I had the halibut with mango, husband had steak and crab cake. Meal was average. Nothing outstanding. I At $31.00 and $34.00 respectfully I would expect a little more. I would not go back. Considering also had to pay for meter parking as you are down town Annapolis.

Went for dinner in this cozy romantic restaurant on Main Street. This restaurant has held its own for over 25 years in Annapolis...a feat few can state. The staff is friendly,the service is excellent. The duck was outstanding....The scallops provencale was good also. Ceviche as an appetizer was decidedly a good choice. The prices range from $21 to $40. Excellent... More

The food at Cafe Normandie is absolutely wonderful. Someone in the kitchen definitely has the lights on. The wait staff are all warm, kind, courteous and aim to please. We were there New Year's Eve and let me tell you, WOW. Fantastic meal, fantastic experience. I've eaten at a Micheline rated restaurant in Portugal. Cafe Normandie can definitely hold it's... More

A family of six, out for a warm Christmas Eve stroll, stopped here for lunch. We all ordered different entrees and everyone enjoyed their selections. The crepes got especially high praise. The atmosphere is very French. We liked it.

French food remains my favorite. And having eaten at many around the US and Europe, this romantic bijou, in terms of quality and preparation of food items and ambiance, is superb! When you walk in, you feel transported to a quaint little eatery in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny. The... More
