My favorite Edmonton restaurant by far... I have dined at Normand’s many times and have yet to experience anything less than an excellent meal. From the Monday night mussel special, to the daily selection of fish and wild meat, Normand’s delivers one of Edmonton’s most refined dining experiences.
The restaurant is relatively small (perhaps 20 tables) with European style decor and dim lighting. Service is relaxed but not too familiar as the waiter will present the menu and daily meat/fish selections. I have enjoyed a variety of meats such as beef, bison, elk, ostrich, and calf liver (with onions) that were all cooked to perfection. Portions are full and one is not left wondering where the food went. Most selections are accompanied by a vegetable and starch (try the scalloped potato). If you are particularly famished, I recommend trying the soup which is always made in house and has never failed to compliment the meal I had.
Don’t miss the opportunity to partake in the wine available at this restaurant. The selection is large and exhaustive, so if you are unsure what to choose the waiter will be happy to make a pairing recommendation with your meal order. The wine is not overpriced (for a restaurant) and there is something to suit most patrons.
My only negative on this restaurant is the parking. There is limited metered parking on the street and some stalls at the back of the restaurant; however these fill up fast on most evenings. You may need to park on an adjacent street and walk over to the restaurant. But the fact is the restaurant does not really control how much parking is available; so I cannot fault Normand’s for the parking situation in the area.
Do make reservations as the restaurant is busy. Ask for a table at the front near the window for a good view of people going by.
