We ate here the first night and had an above average experience. The restaurant has very attentive service and is full of extra wonderful touches to enhance the experience. For example when they serve this out of the world roll...they give you butter, balsamic and oil. They ask you if you want the special spices added to the oil...which were... More

We celebrated my birthday at Norman's primarily because I had heard many great things about it. I was not at all disappointed and loved everything! I had the Key West Ceviche and Beef Tartare as starters and were pleasantly pleased, they both were delicious. As our main plates we both preferred the seafood options available, Yellowtail Snapper & Sea Bass... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever had. From the moment we walked in, everything was wonderful. We had a glass of champagne at the bar before going to our table. The bartender was very friendly. When we sat down, the great service continued. Each course we ordered was better than the last. Even the bread was... More

This is possibly one of the best overall meals we have had in Florida. The ambiance and waitstaff were exceptional which makes this a perfect destination for a special event. In order to make this the very best meal the food needs to be more exceptional. Whilst very good and it has its faults. Please bear in mind we still... More

We had the tasting menu and took about 3 hours to ease through some of the best high end food we have had in a while. Our waiter Greg was a true professional and took excellent care of us. The wine pairing was spot on and the food arrived at a perfect pace. The bison was the best dish, but... More

This is part of the hotel complex. The atmosphere is sophisticated. The food was excellent. we had the fish and roasted chicken. The fried green tomatoes appetizer was very good. Extensive wine list and other drinks. The wait staff was attentive and very helpful. If you are at this Marriott/Ritz Carlton complex, eating here is certainly worth it.

We went to Norman's for my wife's birthday and well it lived up to the hype. We did the tasting menu with wine pairings since it was our first time we wanted varying dishes to get a nice sampling of what Norman's had to offer (there is an a la carte menu as well).

We go to Norman's every year during our Disney trip. I love the atmosphere - sophisticated, nice crowd - just as expected from a restaurant at the Ritz. Great food, great service, fabulous wine. What else can you wish for. We'll be back.

We have been to Norman's several times and before I go any further let me just say we still feel this is THE best high end resort restaurant in the greater Orlando area.
