From the moment you are welcomed to when you sadly are leaving, everything at Norman's is done to near perfection.

“Great Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Had a great dinner at Norman's. Was by myself so I ate at teh bar area while watching the basketballgame on the tv above. The bartender was attentive and the food was fantastic. Great drinks also. Great wine lost.

“Excellent Experience. Top Notch Service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We recently dined at the Bull & Bear at the Waldorf Astoria, and I rated them highly. I know regret that. The service here at Normans was twice as good and the food was superior. The Ritz Carlton is way more fancy, as is Normans decor. If looking for an elegant dining experience. I would choose Normans again.

“Expected greatness, but average at best ... and slow ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Had heard great things about this restaurant. Went with a business group. The menu items were interesting (e.g., conch chowder), but the preparation and tastes didn't match. Ordered the snapper, but pretty sure I got the halibut ... no waiter around to complain to. The service was friendly, but extremely slow.

“Excellence for group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Overall excellence in all aspects with service, meal and wine. Salad was average. The spiced rubbed ribeye looked and tasted more like a filet, however it was perfect. The seasoning, for those who enjoy spice and some heat is a top choice. Fish and chicken dishes were above average. A selection of desserts were plated for each guest at our table, all delicious. The only negative would be a set menu with less choice offered for groups rather than full menu.
