Menu was beyond amazing and I wanted everything. My husband's banana macadam pancakes were the best of the group. You will fall in love and chat often about this meal, but it will cost you. Family of three rang up a $168.oo bill.

On our first trip to New York City a few years ago we went to Norma's. I didn't write a review then, but if I had of I would have given it a solid 5 stars. This time though it was just ok. The restaurant was packed, just as it was our first time round. The service was fine, the... More

This is the best part of the Le Meridien Hotel is Norma's. It is always buzzing with people and it is only open for breakfast-lunch and is VERY expensive. The staff is friendly and accommodating and very international!The food id really fresh and well prepared and very nicely presented. All of the egg dishes are very delicious, as is their... More

The other breakfast dishes are fun and exciting, but this is one of the best. be prepare to have fun there and to experience the... More

Norma's was very busy for weekday brunch/lunch....obviously a popular place. We had just arrived to town and did not have a reservation, so we waited about 20 minutes for a table. I was glad for a first experience, but do not plan to go to Norma's again. The food was good, but overpriced. The service staff was experienced, but too... More

Our breakfast at Norma's was okay, but nothing special. The food is good, but far from amazing. The service is okay, but only okay. The prices are quite high. There are far better options in the city.

This place was a good find. The restaurant is the hotel Le Parker Meridian, so it's hard to find if you didn't know that. There are no discernible signs leading to the entrance, but its the only restaurant on the first floor. A reservation is recommended as this seem like a hotspot. The restaurant is clean and not cramped. Our... More

Had great breakfast. Highly recommend the cheesy omelet and crunchy french toast. Very good but tables very close together typical for NYC. A bit pricey but I would go back.

Imagine fluffy pancakes and french toast larger than your head with real maple syrup and fresh fruit. This is what my daughter and I experienced. We actually took photos of our meal because the portions were so large (of course, you're paying for it!). Everything is incredibly delicious. You will not need to eat another meal until late in the... More

My first impression upon sitting down was dirty silverware. When our waiter finally came, he took it away without any apology. The prices are astronomical, even for NYC. There wasn't many healthy choices, just over the top, rich and large portions. This was a disappointment. I expected much better. Our waiter was the worst. He barely came to check on... More
