Best Sunday brunch in Potomac . Great food, multiple choices, friendly staff, ample parking
I could almost taste the corn starch as a thickening agent in the Lobster Bisque. It was discusting and thermally warm at best. My husband expressed equal discontent for the Maryland Crab soup.
Next, I had the Blacken Monk Fish, pretty sure it had to be spiced heavily and blackened because it was oderous. I was so disappointed and anticipating the succulant monk fish served in French Caribbean known as ‘poor man’s lobster’. My husband ordered the Salmon Stuffed with Crab and again with this course he was unimpressed and said it was average at best.
Dining area was elegant and welcoming with a fireplace and a roaring fire, which was appreciated on a cold night. Had 4 entrees , rockfish, sea scallops, Vegetarian plate and roast duck. All prepared well and were delicious. Great Creme Brulee' for dessert.
Amazing food, lovely atmosphere and great service. Definitely coming back
I’ve always wanted to try this restaurant because I often drive by it. We were incredibly disappointed; there was nothing good about the food or drinks but in spite of it all, we had a lovely dinner with a good friend that lives close by.
Very good. Place is getting quite dated but staff and food were amazing. Seated right by the fireplace which made the trip extremely enjoyable.
Tremendous lunch menu. Friendly staff. Good food. They don't rush you out, we enjoyed every minute.
My friend didn’t eat her meal she said it was terrible. The food did not make my “oh I want to go back” list.
Had a lovely brunch!! Suitable for all ages - kids to grammas! Thank you!!
First time there. Well worth the adventure!!! Great food! Superb selection of dishes at the Sunday Brunch! A bargain for the selection, quality & caliber of food. Great service. A definite place to visit again. Everything was simply divine!
Very accommodating for our large party. Will definitely be back!
I always love the popovers. The Sunday Brunch features omelets as well as cold salads, a variety of breads, great hot food with egg, meat and vegetables, and very tasty desserts. Trifle pudding and chocolate mousse are two of the notables. Went there with friends to celebrate sale of our house.
It was my mother's 80th birthday. The food was fabulous and the restaurant staff were all so wonderful. My mother was so excited about it because as a little girl she used to come over and visit when her grandmother cooked in the kitchen.
Wonderful service and atmosphere
Cozy and romantic fireplace
The Sunday brunch buffet at Normandie Farm is amazing. I have certain dietary restrictions which made only about 75% of the choices available to me, and even with that I had a great deal of difficulty deciding what to take. I can only imagine how challenging it must be for those who can eat it all. Everything I had was delicious, and the signature popovers are always a treat. I did give the service only a "4" because our waiter was not as attentive as I would have liked. We said we would hold off on having our coffee until we had visited the buffet and it was difficult to get his attention when we were ready for it.
Excellent brunch. One if the best if not the best in the area. We had a very nice meal. The restaurant could use a refresh though as the place just looks tired and in need of paint and new furnishings. It detracts from the overall experience.
Food and service was quite good. However, the restaurant is beginning to look its age. Recommend redecorate the décor.
Disappointed the choice of sides was not more varied.
Sweet potato mash doesn't seem to mix well.with Salmon
The buffet was nice, but the draw here is (theoretically) popovers. We each got only one, overcooked to the point of crumbling when we tried to butter the dry dough. We're not big enough eaters to make buffets a good value, so without tasty popovers, this wasn't our cup of tea.
Service was excellent for Brunch. Omelet was prepared extremely well. I wish they could improve their Veal Marsala and Beef Stroganoff. They needed a plain salad bar not just loose vegetables. Slightly noisy but tolerable. Waffles were soggy not crisp, should be made to order not pre-made. Blueberry pancakes were very good.
Quiet elegant ambiance. Amazing popovers
Food average to blah - seemed commercial.
Drinks and appetizers at best.
Very pretty place but good unexceptional.
The chairs were very uncomfortable which dampened the whole outing
Food could be improved. Somewhat pricey. Fair value only.
Nice venue for the group, many food choices in a cozy atmosphere on a very cold Sunday.
As always excellent food, service and ambience they have been doing it year end and year out.
We were there for brunch. We have been coming to Normandy Farm for quite a while now and it seems it’s always the same menu. Some of the items are good, but like any other establishment, you need to revamp your menu. Also, the water glasses on our table were filthy and had to be replaced as well as the coffee creamer container. We like Normandy Farm and that’s why I’m taking the time to write this review.
Place is past its prime. food OK but not fabulous. a bit run down. stodgy. old school. had gone decades ago and had same impression but tried it again for restaurant week. didn't finish much of my main course because not particularly appealing. even 2 of 3 popovers we had were overcooked (generally the best part of the meal) The special heirloom tomato and beet salad was excellent. steak with peppers was poor cut of meat. lobster bisque uninspired. will wait a few more decades to return. Too bad - great location
Excellent food. Pleasant ambience. Sound level good
The duck was delicious! Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and entrees. It was chilly, we all needed jackets or shawls, but the atmosphere was wonderful as was the service.
The popovers are phenomenal. Loved sitting by the fireplace.
My wife’s steak was a little overdone.
The Wait for the check took awhile
Not all of the food that was asked to be put in the take home box was included
Enjoyable Birthday dinner with a friend and the Beef Wellington was delicious and cooked perfectly. Escargot and lobster bisque tasted deviled. Truly enjoyed my evening at Normandie Farm.
Celebrated our anniversary here. I like the low key environment and old fashioned charm. Food is good, lots of tasty selections. Staff was very helpful without being smothering. Management was considerate and recognized our occasion in an appropriate manner. LOVE the popovers! I have always considered this restaurant to be a good value for the dollar. We have been here many times and will return.
Great food, great staff, can't get any better. Recommend a visit. The special holiday buffets are well-varied and excellent. The location is off the beaten path, but not too far from 270/495.
Wonderful place for a special brunch. Large variety of delicious food. Excellent house-made popovers.
Normandie Farms has become our New Year's Eve/husband's birthday tradition. We love the French country atmosphere. The wonderful food is wonderful, especially the popovers. The service is spotty on, even on busy New Year's Eve. Look forward to eating there at least once a year, maybe even twice.
Normandie Farm lived up to its longtime reputation--had been there for lunch several times, not for dinner, but found it an excellent place for a celebratory New Year's Eve dinner. The French onion soup and duck breast I had were very good, and the popovers as wonderful as always--I didn't have room for dessert. The service was courteous and professional.
While New Year's Eve always poses certain challenge, the menu was rather limited and the staff not as friendly and accommodating as usual.
I'm Sure they were looking ahead at a long night. We'll go back but not on a holiday.
Normandie Farms was my parents' favorite restaurant but, because we line in Williamsburg, I had not been here in almost 15 years. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is still classy, with upscale ambiance and great food. The signature popovers are to die for, and each entree that we had was delicious. It is pricey, yes, but worth it for a special occasion or the occasional splurge. We are not waiting another 15 years!
Excellent night and the decor was very festive. We had a great dinner.
We went here for the Christmas buffet. There was an incredible variety of food and it was all very good, though just a bit pricey.
