Normandie Farm Ratings and Reviews
We hadn't been to Normandie Farms in many years, not sure why so long. Maybe deterred by what I recalled as a long drive. In fact, it's not that far away. The room was also larger than we recalled. We were seated right by the (gas) fireplace, a nice touch. There are many food choices including vegetarian and plentiful fish. We had lobster bisque, watercress salad, mahi, and halibut. The food was excellent and nicely presented. A wine on the by-the-glass card caught our eye so we got a bottle, even though it wasn't on the main wine list, and turned out to be a fine pick. At the beginning, the service seemed a bit too fast, but then relaxed to a suitable pace. The "country French" decor is delightful, there is enough space between tables to have a conversation, and the prices are quite fair. There is plenty of parking.
I booked Normandie Farms for a birthday brunch after reading some online reviews. I have to say I was rather disappointed. First, let me say that the service was terrific. Our waiter was spot-on and attentive. Beyond that; meh! There was a wide selection of food choices but in terms of taste and flavor, none of it is memorable. The various salad choices were rather unoriginal and completely bland. Seafood choices were also lacking. Some salmon but nothing else, not even shrimp. And a Sunday brunch with no fried chicken (only one chicken dish on display)! The way the Bloody Mary bar was presented was very confusing and not at all appealing and drink prices were expensive. The seating was also very cramped with tables very close to one another. You had to squeeze through with your food and there was no privacy; you could listen in quite clearly on the adjoining tables. At $36 per person plus the addtional $8 per mimosa and $12 for the bloody mary bar, the value was just not there. There are much better valued brunch options around.
We had not been to Normandie Farm for many years. Previously, it was our "go-to" place for large holiday family get-togethers. We returned to reminisce a bit, and to see how the restaurant was doing. Short version: our food was good, had very large portions, etc. The bar/wine by the glass selection was limited. There was an event in their reception area occurring that seemed to disrupt the timing of everything - taking orders too awhile, attention to details was only so-so, etc. Overall, still enjoyable - just need to moderate expectations.
Loved the decoration especially around holidays. Loved the food which are easy on the diet. Will enjoy holiday get together but must check to see if seasonal price is exceptionally higher. We'd gotten double the price for less choice of food during a less known holiday.
I'm thinking, but I can't remember having a worst dining experience. I ordered the duck and it was so fatty that it couldn't be eaten. The broccoli had no taste and was under cooked. The brown rice had a terrible smell and taste like it was sitting in the kitchen for days. My wife ordered the crab imperial which was mostly imperial and not much crab. She said it was very dry. There were only three tables with customers, in the large dining room. You would think that the service would be wonderful. The waiter, who was friendly and personable, did ask if everything was okay before I tasted my food, but I didn't see him after I did. The Maitre D seated us and spent the rest of the evening wandering around the dining area, acknowledging none of the three tables. He certainly could have been more friendly and showed some interest in his diners.
When the waiter brought the check, I told him that the duck was fatty and he could see that my entire meal was still on my plate. He said "I'm so sorry" and walked away with my payment.
We went to the Normandie Farm for dinner and it was understaffed, so it took a long time to place our order, a long time to get our food, and some of the dishes were overcooked. But the restaurant is always convenient, the noise level moderate, allowing for table convrsation, and the staff is friendly
Wonderful first visit to Normandie Farms. We were in town visiting family, and found this wonderful restaurant with a great history. Our family member that we were visiting said she'd heard about this restaurant but had never been there. We were celebrating a family birthday, and the restaurant couldn't have accommodated us better. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals - quiche, crab cake, beef tips, sauteed calves liver. Our server Santos was great - would definitely recommend and make sure that you check out the history of the restaurant which was a favorite of Eleanor Roosevelt.
Normandy Farms is a little of France in the neighborhood. Their popovers are what brings us back, but their menu is really great. This time we came during Bastille Week and had seafood. We find it a great place to come for a our Wednesday night date night, but other special occasions are good too.
I'd heard about this restaurant a few times, so I decided to try it for Father's Day. My father likes buffets and actually likes Golden Coral. But I wanted to take in to an more upscale buffet. I was disappointed. It was a very expensive buffet and I thought the quality of the food was not on point. Many of the salad and side dishes tasted ....not very good. As an example, there were roasted beets which I love, but they were obviously from a can. A $50 buffet with canned beets? The meats were dry. Out of several meat options, only one was significantly good. The best thing I ate was the fresh Oysters on the half shell. But those are what they are, not really a chef prepared thing. For the price, I wish I had just taken my father to Golden Corral. Also, the carpeting everywhere really needs a good cleaning or perhaps a replacement.
Came here for Father's Day brunch. Everything was just ok - nothing special to comment on. However, two notable things were that there was a hair (not ours) in the coffee creamer and a dead ant in one of our water glasses. For $200 for two adults and two small children...definitely not worth the cost.
