Went to Norman's for a work dinner. It was one of the best meals I've had this year. I had the sea scallops for my first plate, lamb for the main, and a chocolate mousse dessert. The service was also amazing. Very much enjoyed my meal!

The best by far in so many ways. We wanted a nice romantic restaurant so after reviewing many on Trip Advisor, we chose Normans. We have been to restaurants in other Ritz Carlton hotels and never disappointed which helped steer us here. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the hostess and taken to our table by our...

Went with a group of eight for dinner and had a terrific experience. The food was excellent, we had a pre set menu with everyone trying something different. All meals were done to perfection - from seafood, chicken and steak, no-one was disappointed. The wine pairing during the meal was spot on. Staff were attentive and friendly. Prices were competitive... More
