Real food

Step away from the bar food or tourist food and enjoy real food. Chief/owner Jean Louis has been serving delicious French cooking for many year at the Cafe Normandie. The menu is enjoyable, there is always a page of specials, and the early bird fixed fare is the best deal in town for those that... read more

Tried this restaurant on a Saturday night. Very Busy. Reservation necessary! Even then, we had to wait 15 min for our table. The food was excellent and the service was also very good. Very friendly restaurant, is a little dated but clean and well-organized.

We've been coming here for years, since before our teenage sons were born. This visit, we're cheering ourselves up after dropping off our first college-bound son. The food and service did not disappoint -- just what we needed! Wonderful French comfort food, warm and cozy environment, sitting in our favorite booth. The Veal Francaise, duck and quail dishes were all... More

We had a very late night dinner there. We got seated in 5 minutes. The server helped us with what the menu was saying since there are no descriptions as to what the french type dishes include. I thought that the steak au poivre was not cooked to my liking and the sauce was not my thing either. I wanted... More

While walking down Main Street in Annapolis Maryland, we came across this restaurant without knowing any of its background. After looking at the menu and checking out various food review sites (including Trip Advisor), we chose to make a dinner reservation for that evening. We were definitely not disappointed!! The selection of French prepared dishes was more than ample to... More

We came here for a more fancy dinner and were not disappointed. Had a great bottle of wine, and some really amazing and fresh fish preparations. Service was good, atmosphere was very nice. Had a Groupon for half off, which you can't beat!

Our diligent server was punctual with our requests and was quite a character (in the best way possible). The food was phenomenal and we didn't have a terrible wait time. The table we were at was a bit close to the surrounding parties. I would suggest requesting a more secluded table for an intimate experience. The cream of crab soup... More

Pleasant French bistro, often satisfying food, inconsistent service. We have had great visits and frustratingly long waits for our meal. Check out the group they offer for $30 off, this makes it worth a try
