We went with family and we enjoy the food and service, was a little empty, but the food was great. We enjoy it, and we will come back on the next opportunity.

“Good Enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I'm not sure if there is fine dining in these parts but this is close.

Some of the dishes although a bit creative and have nice presentation were a bit too salty. I also thought the sides overwhelm the main course which is quite small and so did not really fill me up.

The staff is professional and somewhat friendly. The ambiance is really nice and hopefully the new space will retain its old charm.

“Great Birthday Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I went there with my fiance Alex for his birthday. The service was really solicitous, courteous and warm. The food was very decadent, we had the French onion soup, chopped salad, beef short ribs, and of course mac and cheese and I have been craving it ever since. Love this restaurant and I'll definitely come back for my next

“Excellent restaurant in Stowe, VT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Excellent food, excellent service, very friendly staff. Reservations are a good idea. My husband & I went to Norma's after a long day of skiing and it was an excellent end to our wonderful day. We basically ordered appetizers for dinner & they were delicious! The beet salad, Cobb salad, crab cake & french onion soup were outstanding! We also split an order of mussels which were good, but my least favorite. The short ribs & chocolate silk pie were also excellent. Our waiter, Ryan did a super job! Excellent all around, would highly recommend!
