Not what I expected from even a hotel restaurant - small and closed off, around the back of the hotel lobby. The high ceilings keep you from feeling claustrophobic. Tables are pretty close together and there isn't background music so you can hear everyone else's conversations. Didn't seem to be dedicated servers so two or three different ones might ask you to take your order - I suppose this speeds things up. The food itself was very good but pretty expensive. There are a number of cafes and restaurants in the area of the Parker Meridien that I would go to first next time over Norma's. We had the belgian waffle with berries $26 and the nova smoked salmon ring $28 (which I think was the best value for the price of the two items we got).

A great place to go for something out of the ordinary for breakfast. We had a great time and the orange juice and service were both great.

We love Norma's! Yes, their prices are extremely high but every bite is worth the price. Our favorites are the lemon ricotta pancakes (make sure to ask for them hot), creme brulee oatmeal, smoked salmon and the breakfast fritatta. On top of the amazing food is the wonderful french press coffee. The restaurant has a great vibe and design. The service is always terrific. The same servers are there year after year. Bob, Emil and Jan are a few of the staff that always take good care of us.

I had wanted to eat here for a while, but regret eating here. I could never understand why the prices were so high. Part of the reason is that the portions are ridiculously large. Almost all patrons I observed left a lot of their meals on their plates - a huge wast of food. My omelette was overcooked. It took a very long time to get our main entrees.

It wasn't my first time at Norma's but it will be the last. I come whenever I have friend's visiting from out of town/country. The quality of food and service have gone from great to good to worse!
Food came not only late but cold! The crowd was not bigger nor smaller than the usual.
Too much hype, quality had gone really bad.

Absolutely some of the best breakfast/brunch food you can find anywhere. I bit pricey, but wow is it so good. Go for the dessert type entrees like the Chocolate Decadence French Toast. Unbelievable waffle, crêpe and french toast creations. Only complaint is that Norma’s Truly Continental Bakery Basket should have a few more items, especially the chocolate ones given the price. Even the Spicy Shrimp Quesadilla is tops.

The Norma's I know and love is back!! I must admit that the last few times we brunched at Norma's it had been somewhat disappointing as to what we became accustomed to - still good, but not outstanding. Well move over "good", "outstanding" is back!

The best brunch the city has to offer!! Don't miss the Light and Lemon-y pancakes with Devonshire cream - simply heavenly!!!

Huge range and variety - massive portions - efficient and polite service - delicious brunch - perfect for brunch. However, the only disappointment was the fact that it was my birthday and someone at Norma's forgot to arrange my birthday cake, which my husband has discussed at the beginning of the week. Despite this - which I didn't know about until later on in the day - I had a wonderful start to the day !

Menu items are incredibly creative, although portions are huge! Come very hungry, and ready to experience new flavors.

Creative unique brunch dishes with a combination of beautiful ambiance and great service. Perfect for foodies, just make a reservation in advance, tables fill very quickly.

ultra large portions with prices to match. ambience does not merit the expense.

Norma's has a menu that makes it difficult to choose, and I am never disappointed. It is a quaint place, busy and a bit noisy. The food is always good!

Eggs Florentine came out cold and had to be sent back; for $22 yet. A pot of coffee for two was an outrageous $14. Waited 15 minutes for a waiter to arrive.

I stayed at the hotel a few years ago and remembered the delicious brunch. So when I was in town this weekend, I came back and it was better than ever! The French toast& bacon= amazing. Great service!

Norma's breakfast was like a party in your mouth. Layers of flavor and textures that came together so well. The French toast is made with brioche and we all know how great this bread is. The service and ambience matched the food. My next visit to New York will have Norma's at the top of the list.
