The catch of the day - SeaBass was enjoyed to different ways by our group as well as the duck which never disappoints. And I enjoyed soft shell crab almondine. Absolutely superb. And never go here without starting with the cream of crab soup. Thanks for a great evening!!

The restaurant was not very crowded when we arrived at 12:30 but did fill up a bit more by the time we left at 2:00. My only complaint is that it took a LONG time for our main courses to come out. We did have an appetizer that came out ahead of time, so we weren't starving. We were there for an hour and half, which was a longer lunch than we had wanted, as we were hoping for some more time to look around in the cute shops afterwards. Having said that, the food was very good and our server was very nice. We understand that restaurants are short staffed right now and are doing their best to provide a good experience. Definitely pack some patience, order an appetizer, and enjoy an extra glass of wine. Its worth it! I'll definitely be going back to Cafe Normandie to enjoy a leisurely lunch :)

I totally understand how overwhelmed the staff must be from the shortage everywhere, but I was slightly saddened that none of the staff acknowledged that I had written it was a birthday celebration for both my mother and father (April 3&5).

Our apps that needed bread (baked brie, escargot) were delivered without bread and had to wait 10 min to eat so we could grab our server riding by to get the bread. The scallops and risotto was excellent. We will definitely be back for that and hourly they will have more help.

We had a lovely, cozy, semi-private “U” shaped table which was fantastic for our friends gathering. Zoe was our fabulous server and while she was practically running around to tend to her tables, she also made it seem seamless to us. Cool, calm and collected. The food was so amazing that not one of our plates had any remnants of food left at the end. The restaurant week lunch specials were perfectly portioned and just incredibly delicious. Among us we had Trout Almondine, Beef Bourguignon and Ratatouille. All was devoured. We lingered a bit longer than most as we were long time friends catching up, but no staff hurried us along. We will definitely return and spread the word.

The sign by the entrance door warns Covid is keeping staff at home everywhere and to be kind to the people who show up for work! On a Friday lunch hour, the restaurant was very busy and the wait time for food seemed long. The three-course Restaurant Week menu offered good choices. The cocktail though was the star of the lunch: gin, chambourd, simple syrup, simply yummy and refreshing.
