We recently had a delicious and wonderful meal. We felt like we were back in France. Reasonable price for portions and presentation. Wine recommendation tight on. If you like French authenticity, you must go!

My wife and myself stopped here for dinner at my birthday. The dinner was good and price was fair, given the location (Annapolis!). There were traces of France here, mostly music. A good place to eat.

We went with a group of 11 (including several kids) and got the prix fix, which is available before 6:30. It ws delicious and included some of the better menu items....not just the low cost fare. Service was excellent and not rushed. We were seated upstairs and could actually hear one another from one end of the table to the... More

We were recently in Annapolis and looked forward to re-visiting Cafe Normandie. We has been several years ago and I wrote a very favorable TA review. Unfortunately, our experience this time did not match our former visits. First of all, it just has a very tired and outdated look and feel--the furniture, carpet and decor are worn and are in...

Stopped in while we were walking around Annapolis in search of a good place for lunch and ended up here. We both got crab dishes (I got the crabcake sandwich on a brioche bun and my mom got the soft shell crab) and both were very good. The soft shell crab was very fresh and my mom thought it was...

We were visiting Annapolis and decided to have dinner here. The restaurant has a great location. We did not have a reservation, but they found a very nice table for my family (5 persons). The service and the food was great. The place is really small , so many tables don't have much privacy, but it's a very cozy and... More

We ate here on a whim. The food and service were both very good. If I were on a date I would definitely go there again. Good fusion of French and Maryland cuisines/foods.

This was where we stopped first on our arrival in Annapolis, hoping to get a late lunch. Tough luck for us, they had finished the luncheon seating and had not yet commenced the dinner seating. We got a rather snotty kiss-off from the young lady who greeted us (if you can call it that). We'll skip the Normandie Invasion.

We had one dinner at this restaurant and it was just fine. Not particularly outstanding, but certainly good enough.
