A rare fiber dining experience in Orlando. You’re searching for something that stands out and isn’t one of the million QSR chains? This is it. One of the area’s finest wine lists and a creative, indulgent menu to match.

The overall experience was nice. It was a little chilly in the room and the main dishes weren’t as good as the price. The service and the place was lovely, but the servers kept assuming that one of my guest was underage instead of verifying. Other than that, the little feebies and refilling of bread and water was the best part.

Dining at Norman’s was really an experience! On paper, it really looks great-Ritz, James Beard finalist, etc...It really lives up to all that. We celebrated a birthday and the few touches for it were really nice. The atmosphere was great-sort of classic French with a slightly modern twist-and the food was insanely good. And portions were reasonable considering the prices. The waitstaff was proficient but not exceptional. And the host stand was on the opposite end of the doors we entered in, so we had to back track a bit. Those are seriously the only negatives. It was a proper four star restaurant that I’ll visit again if I’m in the area.

Food was excellent. One of the best pork loin dishes I have ever had. Nice ambiance - not overly fancy and not crazy expensive. Definitely a good non-Disney choice for Orlando!

We’ve usually eaten at Norman’s each tome we come to Orlando. It remains consistent in attentive service, tasty food and a special dining environment.
This time was no exception. Our waiter was extremely good, the food was delicious and the overall evening was a success.
We are coming back tonight again as it’s our last evening of our vacation !

We had an excellent dinner at Norman's. The service was outstanding and the food tasted great. For entrees we had the yellow snapper and the filet mignon and both were flavorful and tender. The chocolate bar we shared for dessert was exceptional.

The ambiance was great, the food was blan and the portions was meager. It sealed like they shopped at Walmart frozen seafood section. The Shrimp ceviche taste like tomato sauce and cilantro. The scallops was two small half dollar blan tasting. The best thing was the alcoholic beverages. The desert was very flavorful. They need to take plating tips from the Food network. I will not be dining there again.
