The service is always spectacular! Each course was richly prepared, exquisitely/uniquely described, and while the "value" isn't what it once was (price wise) - I will be making a 14th return visit one day this year (2018). Highly recommended for a special occasion, birthday, or anniversary. In all honesty: If you are at all price sensitive, this is probably not your ideal choice.

Wilson who served us and selected our wines made our evening. Remarkable shrimp , beet salad and chicken entree. We were vacationing in Florida for seven days each night selecting a special 4 or 5 Star restaurant for dinner . This was absolutely the best . Comfortably dignified . We were made to feel very special.

I'm just not sure how dinner at Norman's could be any better - ambiance, surroundings, views, service & of course, the famous food. Excellent wine list as well. Norman's famous yellowtail snapper is always perfect (and I find myself thinking about it from time to time, always wishing I had just one more bite), and the as-well-known foie gras with sauterene and challah french toast is worth taking out-of-town friends to enjoy.

Cory is a wonderful choice as a server - just the right touch of available without hovering.

If you haven't tried this local jewel, you're missing out!

I would never eat here again. Completely not worth the exorbitant prices and the service was way too slow. Wine was the only ok thing but I guess it should have been for $119. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant.

Unbelievably loud two people sitting at a table across from one another literally could not have a conversation without leaning across the table 12 in" apart the noise was unbearably loud was not attractive at all and was not worth the money.

The service was fantastic and the room is beautiful. However, the noise level quickly made the restaurant sound as though we were seated in a school cafeteria when merely half the tables were filled. The food was delicious but the portions are unacceptably small. I’m 5’2”, 110 lbs., and, after eating the two, small *slices of the $60 filet (a detail not included on the menu), I was still starving. I do not mind spending money on a great restaurant when I feel as though the food is of quality and worthwhile but I did not feel this was the case at Norman’s. Plus, the bathroom is an unreasonable hike from the tables. For a truly fabulous and romantic evening, I recommend going to Capa, Chatham’s, or Chef’s Table, instead.

I have to go to Orlando for work usually twice a year and I struggle to find someplace for a special dinner that isn't the chain garbage/yet-another-steak-house wasteland that defines Orlando. This is one of the restaurants that makes me happy. I really enjoy the Latin touches to the offerings. I'm still fantasizing about the conch chowder. My only complaint is that the portion sizes on the tasting menu are actually TOO large - I practically needed to be rolled out of the restaurant. I almost want to go back to Orlando to eat here again!
