Wonderful food and service
Lovely food experience
Superb French cuisine and a very European atmosphere sitting outside.
Food here is absolutely amazing. Everything is presented perfectly looks and tastes amazing. Food was hot and perfectly prepared. This restaurant is my favorite at any price.
Fast and friendly service coupled with fantastic food - beef bourguignon and lobster ravioli!!!
Glad we decided to sit inside. Some of the cars going by on Main had custom exhaust systems. Food was great as always. Half price wine on Mondays!
As always we had a delightful dining experience at Cafe Normandie. The service and the food met all of our expectations. The only drawback (and this is NOT a complaint) is that it was a bit hard to understand our server through her mask. She was very sweet about it and repeated herself until we understood what she was saying. This will not stop us from going back!
Nice day exploring Annapolis. Walked by Cafe Normandie and thought it looked good, and we weren’t disappointed. Totally impromptu visit and glad we stopped in
Food and staff were tremendous. Highly recommend.
We were able to dine outdoors during covid. Cafe Normandie exercised additional precautions, like adding planters so people couldn’t walk between the tables. We felt super safe and they added adorable touches to make it feel like we weren’t just eating in the street. The food and service was wonderful, as always.
Cafe Normandie is a fantastic french cuisine dining option that is practically our primary goto when in Annapolis. We enjoyed a fantastic brunch enjoying an incredibly priced bottle french sparkling rose'. Always on our list to visit again whenever we are in town.
We always enjoy our dining experience here, escargot, veal & quail. All is delicious. We were to full for desert.
I love the relaxed feel and I definitely will return. The Halibut was amazing and showing up for 1/2 price wine night was a real treat ! We both enjoyed our meal, however, I would not order the grilled artichoke again. Service was great
Wonderful experience and exceptional wait staff! Going back again and again
Excellent food. Good service. very nice location.
The restaurant has always been a favorite. The food and service are consistently excellent. I visit family in northeastern France regularly, and the meals at cafe Normandie always take me right back.
I do think that the artificial floral decoration looks a bit dated. The exposed timber & plaster could be beautiful on its own.
Also... maybe have a good hard cider on tap? I’ve never been to a restaurant in Normandy that didn’t offer carafes of cider for the table.
The experience was good, but not memorable. I would eat here again, but it is not at the top of my list. This is a very similar restaurant and atmosphere to La Chaumiere in Washington, DC, but that’s where the comparison stops.
Fabulous meal! The lamb chops were cooked to perfection as was the Ossobuco. I strongly recommend Café Normandie for a special night out.
Very enjoyable evening with no rush from the staff.
I was in Annapolis for the weekend and kept hearing about this place. It was fantastic. I will come back when in Annapolis.
We had just gotten engaged that day and wanted to go somewhere nice, with good food.
Everything from the way we were greeted to the absolutely delectable appetizers and meal were way above the bar. I was extremely impressed. I was not surprised by what we experienced based on the wonderful reviews by everyone we spoke to before we dined ourselves. Our evening could not have been better. The only thing that I can critique is the eclair that was tasty but kind of soggy like it was previously frozen. Great restaurant. I will be recommending it widely to anyone And everyone coming through Annapolis!!!! Thanks!
We love this place! Service is so friendly and food is outstanding.
Delicious food and wonderful service! Everything was lovely and felt very safe with COVID compliance.
The food here is fantastic! I ordered the mussels, and they were amazing! I never had mussels that big before and the presentation was beautiful. My family and I enjoyed our experience there and we are looking forward to going back! Authentic French cuisine at its best!
Lunch was outstanding, service was fantastic and I will go again and again
Anna, our server did an excellent job during this difficult time. We have been dining at Cafe Normandy for decades and (ordinarily) love the quaint cozy charm of this small restaurant. We were a bit hesitant to come back so soon given the size of the space, but they have limited indoor seating and expanded the outdoor area. We were well spaced out from the other diners. What COVID has changed here is the excellent food and wine at reasonable prices. It is now the only placee in Annapolis where one can get classic French appetizers such as escargot and bone marrow, and dishes like quail and duck. Their goal is to provide a leisurely paced European dining experience and not just turn the table as quickly as possible. We very much appreciate this approach, but if you are they type of diner who wants to get in and out in under an hour, you should mention it.
A favorite restaurant in Annapolis. The calamari and blueberry salmon were outstanding!!!
Excellent service and superb cuisine. We’re never disappointed with this French gen
Went for an early dinner & everything was great. We ate inside so they’re were few dinners due to covid 19.
Hope for a recovery soon & we will be back again.
A provincial French restaurant with pleasant ambiance, excellent food, and friendly staff. We loved our experience
Eating here will be a must do for our family from now on!
We were able to have a table out front on the sidewalk. Servers were attentive and the food was delicious. The total cost of dinner for the two of us with tip was less than $125 so this is a great value for the money.
Loved the food (CALAMARI!)....and the service! Excited about the new back bar and will try it next time!
The food here is excellent! Best escargot I ever had. Every dish was delicious! We are planning our next date here!
This was our first dining experience with Cafe Normandie. Atmosphere was pleasant although very tight quarters with seating arrangement. Staff was all friendly but service was a little slow. Food was very good until the desserts came. We were extremely underwhelmed. Both our desserts had little to no taste and seemed like they were defrosted from a box of something you could find at Costco or Sams. I would recommend this restaurant...just skip dessert
Excellent food and service. We are frequent visitors. Highly recommend.
Nice location, the ambiance is quite romantic and cozy. The food was just okay though - I had the baked brie, salmon and fruit tart. The baked brie was good (not amazing but good), salmon was delicious - not overcooked though the side of somewhat bitter vegetables didn’t go with the rice with carrots and peas. Also the fruit tart which I was looking forward to more than anything had a bitter taste. Not good. Our server was quite busy so not as attentive or quick as he could have been. Overall - meh.
Classic restaurant in Annapolis. Have not been there in about 5 years. The decor is very homie, has not been changed in a while. Food was very good as well was the service. We were there for restaurant week so yes it was a good value.
The appetizer and entrée were very good. The bread served with the meal was outstanding.
