Had a really lovely Valentine's
day dinner at Normandy. The owner of the restaurant was bouncing around and talking to tables. We found her very energetic and polite. Had a really great steak....ambiance was excellent. Place was decorated and everything was amazing! Would for sure recommend it!"

I almost never get steak at a
restaurant because for me it is generally overpriced and I'd be just as happy with something else. The Au pouivre (i know i spelled it wrong) which is steak in brandy cream sauce caught my attention as being something different and I really just wanted to try it. It was so friggin' good. I cannot imagine that it gets much better than this. I don't really have the funds to do a steak house tour and find out. So for me, if I want a really good steak - I'll probably just come back to Normandy Kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I will try to duplicate a close second of this recipe at home. I also tried the beet Manhattan martini. I thought it was very original and well balanced. I had the house merlot - very solid!"

I hadn't been there for over 30
years, but wanted a casual dinner destination. The dining room was warm and cozy and not crowded. Only one server was taking care of everyone, but she was very efficient and personable. I had the brined pork tenderloin with au gratin potato, and my fresh carrots were supposed to have a mustard glaze, but it was forgotten. Our server offered to have it remade, but it wasn't a big deal. My spouse had the crusted walleye with a lovely wild and white rice side, and a Caesar salad. The salad was not good. Fresh romaine, a few dry croutons, anchovy and an absolutely tasteless dressing. No garlic, no lemon, no flavor. Popovers were fabulous. Would recommend and we won't wait another 30 years to go back!"

Its been 35 years since we last
ate at the "Kitchen". The last time-- the day after our wedding. Happily our positive memories were reinforced by brunch last Sunday. The popovers were light, yet crispy on the outside--the cinnamon was a wonderful feature. We shared a plate a plate of apple fritter French toast with real maple syrup and an omelet that consisted of sausage, avocado and tomatoes. The texture of the French toast was sweet and chewy--perfect. The maple syrup made it taste like dessert. YUM! The omelet was light with wonderful texture. Te accompanying English muffin was thicker than what is generally available at stores. The service was top-notch. The staff was so prompt there was no need for second requests. We will be back!"

I couldn't even remember the last
time I ate at The Normandy Kitchen, but my wife was really in the mood for a great hamburger and I suggested that we give one of the original great hamburgers a try. We had the hamburger, rotisserie chicken sliders, and a popover to share. All were great! Bonus points for great skin-on fries. There were a number of other casual and full meal items that looked good and we'll try them next time. We ate on a Sunday night at about 7:30. It was beyond quiet, which was actually a nice change from the places where you scream at each other to be heard."

Don't let the exterior of the
building fool you - the restaurant is very nicely decorated and the food is great!"

In my travels I've eaten in
restaurants all over the U.S., and this place managed to take the prize for the worst service ever. 25 minutes before I got any type of service, and then another 25 minutes before I received my first course! Also, while my server tried to be nice and apologetic about the slow service, he offered other diners a free drink, including the patron right next to me, and bypassed me. The food, while better than the service, was strictly so-so. At least it was not expensive. I think that's about the best thing I can say about this dining experience."
