Brunch at Norma's was awesome. Definitely would recommend the crunchy french toast. Make a reservation on the weekends or expect to wait at least an hour. We lucked out and got a reservation for 10 am online at 9:15 the same day. Get the fresh squeezed OJ if the price isn't too high for you!

There were four of us. Three ordered the Upstream Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and one of us (me) ordered the Nova Smoked Salmon Ring with Scrambled Eggs. Mine was perfect, the other three returned their's because the Hollandaise sauce was cold! The dishes had to be redone and this took time. The place is expensive and was thus disappointing.... More

Norma's at Le Parker Meridien Hotel is one of the best Breakfast spots in New York City. Unique to say the least. The menu is extensive, the portions large enough to split. I like to share when we all can agree on things to eat. However my favorite are the lox's. Every time I go they become creative and sometimes... More

I haven't been to Tiffany's, but I have been to Norma's at the Le Meridien Parker Hotel. I was not too impressed with the restaurant since the tables are small giving you a feel of a trying hard bistro in a first class hotel. The moment I was greeted by the server, until the very end of breakfast, I suddenly... More

Norma's was a lot smaller than I expected, and closed off from everything. It's tucked into the back corner of the hotel with no windows. If it weren't for the high ceilings, I probably would've felt claustrophobic. The food wasn't anything to write home about. We had the belgian waffle with berries ($26) and the nova smoked salmon ring ($28).... More

Norma's has the best brunch menu I have ever seen - with every kind of classic brunch dish and loads of specialty (and over the top) decadent dishes. I love that they offer several crepes, including crepes suzette. I've always wanted crepes suzette for breakfast - why should it just be a dessert! Every dish is prepared to the highest... More

We rushed into the city to place our name for a table. We were told the wait would be 30 minutes which shocked and delighted us. We leave and walk around for a while. We come back and check in to find our we would have to wait a little longer. This turned out to be another 30 minutes. We... More

Met up with a friend here during Restaurant Week 2014. We ate lunch on the early side (12:15pm) and it was a good thing we did. We had a reservation, which was great, because it filled up within 15 minutes of us arriving. Since we went during Restaurant Week, I figured that the menu would be hugely reduced. However, that...

Without doubt, Norma's is about self indulgence. This famous midtown breakfast and brunch venue serves the most incredible portions of food made delicious by the avoidance of any restraint. Fried in oil, drizzled with syrup and served with a side of caramel sauce, your French Toast will delight your tastebuds for sure and you're very unlikely to leave hungry. That... More

We consisted of four people and our reservation was honored. We sat for a bit before anyone came to our table and then waited a bit more for coffee and juice.. We waited more than a bit before our order was taken and then waited a lot for the food to arrive. The table was relatively small and was littered... More
