This is a lovely little quiet spot for a relaxed brunch downtown.We stopped in for brunch and we were promptly seated. The cuisine was French-inspired,and prepared well.The staff was attentive to our every need. Following drinks,our breakfasts were promptly bought to the table.

This restaurant's chef owner is a real, honest to goodness French chef, with all of the necessary credentials. The food is spectacular, and the ambience is warm and inviting. We visited on a cold, wintry day, and the central fireplace was a real treat. The soup of the day was sweet potato with corn. It was fantastic! I had a... More

Went here and had really good service from our waitress and the food was really good. I enjoyed a great bowl of French onion soup and as an entree their beef Bourgogne. We paired it with one of their wines from their special wine list. My mother enjoyed their muscles for appetiser and had their pasta seafood. She followed it... More

We decided to try this restaurant, and so glad we did. The atmosphere inside was warm and cozy. There is a fireplace in the center of the restaurant. The food was very good, and the staff very friendly and efficient.

For some reason we haven't been to Cafe Normandie for quite some time. That will not continue. This is a special place with excellent food, attentive service and a wonderful atmosphere. It truly is a French cafe. The menu is varied but not so overwhelmingly large that it intimidates. We shared a charcuterie platter for starters. The platter had ample... More

I've lived in this city for a long time. The "word" is Cafe Normandie is the best. Maybe we hit the place on a bad evening. We visited on a Sunday evening and just were not impressed. The duck was not great. The beef bourguignon had no layers of flavor. I've done better in my crock pot. My halibut with... More

We have eaten here several times. The first time we all loved the food and wine. I had a veal chop which was fantastic, daughter had lobster ravioli special which she loved, husband a fish almondine, very flavorful. Service was excellent too. Next time, food was spotty and service was poor, slow and not very friendly. Not attentive or ask... More

Stopped by here last Sunday evening around 9:30 for creme brulee and coffee. Just what we hoped for- romantic atmosphere and good food. Although they were nearly closing, I would have liked to hear some music on while dining as opposed to nothing at all.
