French Onion Soup
Table we were at was very cold. Freezing. Food was awesome as always. Clearly have staffing issue but they work really hard
Classic French cuisine, good food and service but the ambiance is a bit dated.
Cafe Normandie never disappoints. The food was delicious as always & what better a day to have a meal there than a Monday - 1/2 price bottles of wine day?
Really like a diner in quality with low points like stale coffee, really bad soup, an inedible cheese and ham crepe but good sausage and eggs.
We have been frequenting Cafe Normandie for 15 years. There Cream of Crab soup is worth the visit. We have never been dissatisfied with anything on their menu!
I’ve been dining here over 20 years. Last evening we had the bouillabaisse which has been my favorite on a cold winter night. Chef Jean Louis does not disappoint. A great classic French bistro.
we have been here many times last night was a little annoying. Our server a very pleasant nice young lady who was very good when she was at our table spent more time standing at the front host desk then servicing our table. For example We wanted for over 10 minutes after we were done eating for her to come and remove and box our entrees we thought she must be busy but then i realized she had been at the front with the i am guessing the owner/mgr. She came wrapped up our leftovers and dropped off desert menus. My wife was interested in the tart from the time we walked in and was just deciding whether to have it there or get a piece to take home. Another 10 minutes of watching her just hangout with the owner at the front before finally coming back and we were not in the mood to wait.
This did not wreck our evening as we were in no rush and we will be back but when you walking in they have put up a sign asking their guest to be patient because they are short staffed that just felt wrong.
This restaurant is a lovely find. Great French food in a traditional French-style setting. We were really impressed with the food - generous portion and reasonable prices. We'll be back.
Always a wonderful experience. Delicious food and superb service.
Cafe Normandie never disappoints
Great food and service. Hostess and waiters are all delightful!
We sat next to the warm fire on a cold winter night. The french onion soup was outstanding. Seafood pasta with basil cream sauce "to die for". French cuisine @ a great value. Generous portion sizes. Highly recommend!!
Lovely, friendly, cozy place with very good French bistro food.
Café Normandie offers French cuisine which is always prepared to perfection. You might have to wait a bit, (especially in the days of Covid) and it is not inexpensive, but very much well worth it. Do NOT miss the French onion soup. It is filled with onions and scrumptious bread and cheese cooked to perfection. Veal scallopini never disappoints, tender and juicy - we ordered bread to sop up the juices! We shared a mango/raspberry sorbet wrapped in a white chocolate shell - and even though it looks huge at the end of a fine meal, it was rapidly consumed and absolutely delicious. We spent more time than planned for lunch yesterday, but as previously stated, they are understaffed, which a sign on the door explains and begs your patience. If you've been there, you KNOW what a great experience it is, if you haven't - try it, for sure.
Delicious food choices and the server was very good. Great choice for great French food.
We had a late lunch on a Monday during the holidays. Many restaurants struggle with being understaffed, and while we waited a little longer to be served, our waitress was a pro, and treated us warmly. I enjoyed our lunch: the onion soup was fantastic as always. Trout with butter sauce and capers was delicious. My husband’s steak and Brie sandwich was disappointing, but we will return and stick to the classic dishes they do well! The pear tarte (of the day), served warm with an anglaise sauce was outstanding. Do not miss dessert!!
This was part of an annual December gathering to celebrate friendship. Felt really bad that there are not enough servers employed. Wait time was long (3.5 hours to complete the meal).
Servers there worked really hard.
Food order was not 100% correct but not off enough to request correction.
Steak sauce was not my favorite.
Steak my favorite restaurant on Main St.
Made my reservation on-line. This included a request for flowers on the table. There were none and I had to ask for them and the flowers were provided.
The door was near the front of the dining room and every-time someone went through the door, we felt the wind.
We asked to be moved and were accommodated right away/
Wonderful authentic French restaurant in the heart of Annapolis. Friendly staff and excellent food. Intimate seating arrangements (booths or tables) with very nice ambiance.
Very good. Waiter was excellent and gave good suggestions for entrees. Always a pleasure to come here especially for the escargots!
Not bad but end of night. Tried seating us next to cold door when many tables available in a more beautiful location.
Amazing service, phenomenal food! I can't say enough about how much I love Cafe Normandie - this is the 3rd time I've been here and the food and service are always top-notch. I had the lobster sandwich, T'was delish!
What a terrific experience!! Such a well run a delightful business. The food is amazing. A wonderful Annapolis restaurant.
Cafe Normandie was outstanding as always. One of my favorite places to spend time with friends.
The food was delicious and the waitress was extremely attentive.
The best in Annapolis
Wonderful! Food was excellent; atmosphere perfect
Always the most wonderful food! We come here every time we visit Annapolis:). The fake flowers need to go though!
Traditional French Restaurant with very good food and service. Has an old tavern ambience which is romantic and warm, unlike many modern furnished French Resaurants that are cold and uninviting.
Cute place. Food was average.
Nice environment , excellent service, great food.
We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Cafe Normandie yesterday afternoon. The food was excellent! We had ordered the seafood omelet and the lamb stew -- and both hit the spot on a chilly afternoon. I am especially glad to say that the service was outstanding. Kathleen was our primary server and she was exceptional. She was friendly, courteous, and extremely helpful -- as were all of the other servers assisting her. We always enjoy Cafe Normandie and we give it our highest recommendation!
Love the ambience and French bistro food at this long time Annapolis restaurant.
Service was almost nonexistent except for bringing food out, the waitress checked on us once briefly. Food wasn’t all that great, bread served was day old, not fresh. Cream of crab was very runny, and there were literally four tiny pieces of crab meat in it, one including the shell. Avocado BLT was basically tasteless and dry. They were however very generous on the avocado slices and the what seemed like a half a head of iceberg lettuce. This is our second time being there, will not recommend to friends nor will we go back! I hardly ever submit bad reviews, however this was their last chance to WOW us. We weren’t wowed.
Great place to enjoy a great meal. Understaffed but we were asked to be patient - which we were glad to oblige.
Excellent food and good service
Nous adorons le cuisine Française. Thé staff was very knowledgeable about the menu, and quick to bring the orders out. Our waitress checked on us regularly, but not intrusively, which made the dining experience very relaxed. We had a very nice waitperson named Tatania.
The endive salad was delicious, as was the trout. No onglette available, but the entrecotte was good, albeit a little fatty. All things considered, the service was excellent. We will definitely come again!
Amazing meal and GOD BLESS THE STAFF. Two servers and they brought it!! Challenging times they’re working in. Great experience. Great food. Amazing workers!
The food was great and the service was outstanding.
Great menu and cozy and welcoming ambience. Love the fire place in the center of the dining room, so romantic.
