Our server, Wilson was outstanding. Thank you for making our dinner a delight!
Porkloin was over cooked - did not meet e pectayions but Fish was good
It was great beautiful location. Service very good and our server was great. Food good and ambiance great only down side was the 1 guy in our party was supposed to buy dinner. We even did credit roulette and he lost. We ended up splitting four ways so sad. Otherwise fish was great and the pork chop entree yum
Absolutely amazing Anniversary dinner. From the personalized menu to the complementary champagne it was a very special experience. Service was top notch and on par with any restaurant we've ever been to. Food was suburb. Will definitely be back.
Beautiful venue with wonderful service and outstanding food. Hard to find in Map Quest. Look for entrance to Grand Lakes. David was great as our waiter.
Such a beautiful place and such a great attempt at service but we had the tasting menu there were such long waits between courses that it ruined the whole experience.
Took my girlfriend here for her 30th birthday to have dinner. I called ahead to see if they could surprise her with a dessert of some kind, with a candle.. and they came through big time!! She was completely amazed from the moment we got there. It's 5 star dining at it's best! The wait staff is spectacular. The ambiance was so relaxed. The lights are dim. Candle lit at the table. Food is very pricey but it's absolutely amazing. Chef Norman goes all out on his menu. Everything is very delicate and made to absolute perfection. Excellent plating. The restaurant surprised my girlfriend with this amazing dessert at the end of the night. It was something new they just added to the menu. Some sort of frozen ice cream on top of a cookie. She loved it. I forgot the name of it lol The comp'd us on Champagne, dessert wine and parking. Which is 30$ just so you know. This restaurant is located inside the Ritz Carlton, in case some don't know.
We are from AB and wanted a nice romantic evening out. Norman's didn't disappoint friend the moment we walked in the door, we were seated immediately and taken care of! The service and food were amazing! We had the Pork Belly, Sea Scallops, Yellowfin Fish, Filet Mignon. I'm a foodie and travel a lot.. it was fantastic! Thank you!
Absolutely wonderful experience! We were celebrating our 18 year wedding anniversary and the staff at Norman’s was absolutely amazing! James was an excellent server and made the whole experience that much more special. We chose the tasting menu with the wine pairings. It was a lot of amazing dishes and all prepared with elegance and refinement. We were even able to change one of the items for a different option from the main menu. It was truly a great meal and we will definitely return!
A delightful and elegant restaurant with totally exceptional service. Dinner is presented as an adventure in dining. Do first is the service, second the ambiance but the icing is the food, delicious to the last bite. We had the snapper, tilefish and the chowder. We love to dress up to dine and Norman's is perfect.
Had an amazing birthday dinner at Norman's. The hosts, waiter and all of the staff were wonderful and kind. Our waiter had a great presentation of each lovely dish. The food was absolutely delicious and well presented with great flavors. I appreciated the small special touches for my birthday with a complimentary rose, menu to take home with my name and happy birthday, plus a complimentary glass of champagne. The noise of the restaurant was just right, music wasn't too loud so people didn't need to shout and I was actually able to have nice conversations with my fiance while he sat across from me. We will definitely be back again.
We came to celebrate our anniversary. I never called the restaurant, but left a message on the Open table reservation. They printed a menu for us saying Happy Anniversary, gave us complimentary champagne to toast (excellent champagne!) and brought out some chocolates with Happy Anniversary written on the plate! They went above and beyond in making our 20th wedding anniversary very special and memorable!
This has to be the best restaurant in the Orlando , everything is perfect ! Having lived in France for sometime we have learnt to appreciate the best in food and Normans is up there along many of the Michelin star restaurants we have used , not just in France but all across Europe. The staff are superb , all the way from the welcome on arrival, the bar , the servers and the management. This now the only restaurant we use on a regular basis as it never fails to exceed our expectations.
One of our favorites!
Amazing! Staff was beyond super attentive and the food was fabulous!!
Everything was amazing!
The staff was incredible. They went above and beyond to make this a memorable evening.
Nice place. Could be better though. Nothing special.
Always my favorite restaurant! Scott is excellent!
When we first arrived the noise level was wonderful, and the restaurant has a great vibe. As the meal progressed and more people came, it did get a bit noisier. A lovely restaurant though and our waiter was wonderful. He was just enough, not to intrusive, but very attentive and helpful throughout the meal.
Superb service. Very good food. Exception dessert. Most interesting Iced Tea service of my life. Great night.
A wonderful dining experience. Delicious food and perfect service.
We were able to customize the tasting menu and every course was superb! Fernando and Andrew provided very attentive service and made my partner’s birthday special!
Food was delicious and service with David was impeccable. Will definitely return next time I'm in Orlando.
Excellent food and service but disappointed our leftovers were left at the restaurant because they weren't given to us when we closed the check. We went to the bar after and then forgot about the food. If given our food when we closed out the check we wouldn't have forgotten it.
Food was excellent. Service was very good. A little noisy for the night
One of the best restaurants in the world! We loved our meal and all of the people who waited on us. Hurrah to the chef!
Unbelievable customer service and above average food, ambiance and staff.
Special dinner with my Husband , everything was superb and when we fond it was The Norman from Miami we were not disappointed food was just excellent
It was worth the drive
James and Juan took great care of our foursome and we were treated like welcomed friends. The food as hoped met our high expectations and we all talked about the event the next day with smiles on our face. We all felt like Arnold...”I’ll be back!” Thanks for making me look good with my recommendation ...again!
Good and service was great. Come every year during a conference I attend. One complaint is the menu seems almost the same as last year, so it would be nice to see some items changed.
Being captive at this hotel complex doesn't leave many options. The wait staff was great, but the food left little to be desired. The shrimp appetizer had little flavor and the pork chop was dry and overcooked. I would suggest getting a taxi or uber and getting out of there and finding one of the hundreds of restaurants nearby that have substantially better food.
Pretentious and food was mediocre. Waiter was fawning and annoying. Red snapper was like cardboard. No taste at all.
The most beautiful place to dine with that special someone, to celebrate any occasion. The food is delish, the cocktails are flavored, the ambiance is spectacular, the staff are so professional, Pleasant, organized, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Would definitely go back to NORMAN'S and recommend highly to friends, family and acquaintances.
Extraordinary service in a beautiful setting! Ask for Fernando and your every wish will be attended to. Some dishes were underwhelming but the snapper was amazing.
Simply superb. Ambitious and creative chef. Tasting menu great value - especially with the well chosen wines alongside. Only downside - too noisy, needs more drapery to deaden the sound in the room
Fantastic meal with great service. Was alone so I sat at the bar. The bartender could not have been nicer or friendlier. Wonderful food at a great place.
