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.

Had a delightful evening out at Normand's a few nights ago to celebrate my birthday. We'd never been before but decided to give it a try on the strength of the Tripadvispr reviews. We were not disappointed and will definitely be back on our next visit to Edmonton. Good menu selection, attentive service and reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

It is a bit dated but cozy & the food was good. On Jasper Avenue so parking isn't the greatest. Good solid dinner

My husband and I have been going to Normands for over 20 years and the experience today is as awesome as it was when we first went. It is a cozy French restaurant and reservations are recommended. They have quite a choice of menu items from pasta, to wild game to steak and the portions sizes are very good. Our favorite is the chicken and shrimp curry dish and it is so plentiful that you better come hungry to finish it. The cream of mushroom soup is to die for and is The best we have had anywhere! A fresh basket of bread is on the table to start on while making your menu selections. The desserts are fantastic, especially the raspberry chocolate truffle cake. The service is excellent and the waiters have all been there for many years. Greg is our personal favorite and he has been serving us practically since we first started going. He is Amazing knowing just when to show up at your table, is very attentive and not hovering and now he knows what we like without us asking. It all enhances the experience. Norm is always at the restaurant and oversees everything and ensures he stops by each table to make sure you are having a wonderful time.
I can't say enough about how great Normands is.... For just a great meal, birthday celebration or romantic evening, you will not be disappointed.

My wife chose Normand's for her birthday, our second visit. The second was as good as the first, simply the best steak, elk/bison tenderloin in the city. The mushroom spread is superb, the sauces for the meat perfect. Service is 10/10 and the staff know wine to pair with your meals. We will definately return. The place is filled with regulars who Normand seems to know as old friends. People come back again and again.
