My husband and I met a friend here recently, all of us out of town on business. The atmosphere was lovely. Service was fair, by which I mean inattention to water and wine glasses, and lots of pushing to buy the most expensive thing on the menu. Although they did bring us complimentary glasses of what they at first named... More

It’s been a while since we last visited Norman’s and I have to say nothing has changed. The Staff at Norman’s have it flawlessly perfected. Everyone was spot on. Tonight was special, a weekend Valentines dinner and Norman’s had a custom menu for the occasion. We started with Fried Green Tomatoes and the Wianno Oyster appetizers. I especially enjoyed the...

My family and I spent a weekend in Orlando. We were greeted by the restaurant reception and taken to our table. We tried the tasting menu and the food was amazing. They impressed us by the unique flavors that impressed with every bite.

We went on a business trip with 45 people and had an excellent dinner starting with champagne and served hors d'oeuvres to the trio of desserts. We had 4 choices of main course and all were outstanding! I'm glad we didn't have to pay the bill....

My wife and I have had the pleasure to dine at this restaurant several times. It’s at a great location, the view is amazing if you are seated by the window for early summer hours. The staff is very friendly in a professional way. The food is delicious, it’s not your typical fine dining, presented beautifully and served at the... More

Absolutely superb service (ask for Antoine) and exciting offerings. Try the delectable and deliciously deconstructed chowder, an orgasmic experience of complex flavors, subtle undertones creating a veritable party n ones mouth. The pork belly was sublime, really beautifully prepared served with intense balsamic reductions and sherry. Then there is the outstanding moroccan veal chop, seasoned to perfection with a gentle...

My wife and I went to Norman's on a recommendation from the AMEX concierge and we are glad we did. We sat just outside the wine table, which I would recommend for a larger party, and enjoyed the decor immensely. The ambiance was quiet and romantic, which was perfect for us. The staff was all very helpful and our waiter... More

This was an excellent restaurant, deserving of every one of it's 4 Forbes stars. The only very minor issue was that we had to wait a few minutes for the host to come to the front to greet us. Everything after that was top notch. The service was impeccable; attentive but not intrusive. The waitstaff was knowledgeable about the food,... More

Our third visit in as many years, and Norman’s did not disappoint. The complete experience here compares favorably to top restaurants in any city around the world. The menu manges to offer a variety of foods to suit every taste while still being well edited. Although pricey, the tasting menu was much less expensive than comparable menus in New York.... More
