I had made a reservation for 8 which evolved into 10. We all wanted to order off the fixe price menu and even though several arrived a little late, they accommodated us. They split the checks by couples (and two singles). This was a class reunion dinner so I think we may have gotten a little loud. We were also... More

As a party of 8 ranging in age 10 to 67, we had a wonderful breakfast experience. The food was prepared flawlessly, (my Eggs Benedict was among the best I've ever consumed) All selections arrived in a timely manner and our server, Nathan D, was present when required but did not hover. Clearly a spot I can recommend without hesitation... More

We have been visiting Cafe Normandie for about 30 years and it has unfortunately never progressed beyond charming but average. It is a little like politics- the triumph of hope over experience. Our table sampled a rather un-French rubbery duck, steak with greasy pommes frites and different seafood dishes. In truth all were average at best. On the good side,... More

In a city of tourism that is well stocked with ice cream stores , bars, sea food restaurants and coffee shops Cafe Normandie provides a French menu that provides an excellent taste of France and a get away from the normal tourist venue. The trout almondine is superb. The wait staff that teams to provide service at a very high... More

We had had a late lunch, and I wanted something small. This restaurant's Petite Plats was the answer. There were two sliders, one beef steak and the other fried oyster. There was just a few thinly cut French fries on the plate. I had a salad with it. Service was excellent and very accommodating. Nice atmosphere.

This is better than the last time we ate here several years ago. The trout was perfectly prepared and came out piping hot. The espresso was perfect, also served very hot. Typically, espresso served in ceramic cups comes out lukewarm because they don't take the trouble to ensure the cups are hot before putting the coffee in. Our waitress was... More

Friday night dinner, but not too crowded. This place has an old, French atmosphere...dark, simple and stark. Our waiter, Nathan, was GREAT (CN owner, if you are reading this, he is a real asset). He made good suggestions, was attentive without being overbearing, and solved issues with pleasant efficiency. Onion soup was among the best we've had and we've had... More

The first thing that I would say is that the atmosphere is not romantic. It was a Saturday night and it was loud. The decor was very dated as well. Again, not romantic. The service was very slow. We were there for over an hour before we got our entree. My wife and I both ordered the surf and turf.... More

We saw Café Normandie as we drove through Annapolis looking for a parking space and decided that was where we’d have dinner, we made a reservation as it was a busy Saturday evening. We were given a booth and though near the kitchen, it was definitely quieter than being at a table. We were quickly given menus and the wine... More

I visited this restaurant with a group of six colleagues while on business in Annapolis. The restaurant was in an excellent location on Main Street close to the harbor. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. We mostly chose from the early specials that were all very good. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for something a... More
