Everything was delightful; amazing service, stylish space, beautiful views, delicious and thoughtful dishes, excellent cocktails, and a very cool vibe. We stopped on our way between Santa Barbara and SLO and will definitely be back again. It’s worth the trip for sure.

We had the charcuterie appetizer, wagyu burger, chicken, and the chef’s special dessert… it was all amazing, we savored every bite… and the money maker was our favorite cocktail.

Menu is very small and could certainly use an update. Staff is excellent. Parking is an issue and can be somewhat frustrating.

The restaurant is more charming in person than in website photos. Our evening meal was outstanding (filets cooked perfectly). The server (Able) was attentive but did not hover or rush us. The scramble was everything you could want for breakfast all in one bowl - perfect! Highly reccomend.

The entire staff was helpful and very friendly! The food was amazing and the drinks were phenomenal. I wish the portion size was larger. The grilled octopus charred with peppers in a curry sauce dusted with pistachos was amazing!!! However the portion size left one still hungry.

But Normans sunsets are beautiful, the food, ambience and I cannot say more about how amazing the staff are. Thank you for the experience. We will totally come back

The food and service was good, except for the pear salad my wife had. Just didn’t taste good, almost bitter. Simple, but good menu. Enjoyable eating outside near the pool. Great bar.

This was an amazing experience as far as service and food. The bartender who was also our server was great. Water glasses appeared instantly and were always refilled. Ambiance should have been ideal-except-a woman who seemed to know the staff well was sitting at the bar across from us. She spoke very loudly at length with the bartender, and anyone who would listen, inserting expletives which made it hard to have a quiet conversation. I didn’t want to complain and kept hoping the bartender would ask her to tone it down because he seemed to know her well. Only glitch in what would have been a perfect experience. In spite of this, we will definitely try Norman’s again!

It was a little overpriced for the food itself and nothing special. My potatoes in my dish were raw in the middle. Service was not the best either

The evening was perfect. Excellent service, great food, the fish was fantastic.
Norman's wasn't as busy as our last visit and that might have helped with the prompt service and delivery of our courses.

Chk dry but flavor good. Salad needs more stuff less lettuce. Avo toast cold. Out of a bunch of stuff.
Service was slow at breakfast and there was only one other couple. Seems you are short staffed. Especially by the pool attendance!

Our food was delayed, and we received it at 8:30.. The waiter came by at 8:45 pm to announce last call for drinks! Uh? I guess Los Alamos closes early, 9pm, on Tuesdays.

They ran out of filet and tried to offer cod instead!? Presentation of portobello dish was appallingly bad. Saving grace was Mac and cheese!

We were able to get a last minute reservation which was great. We were seated under a tree next to the only other people dining outside. Lunch was good enough but not worth going back for given the uphill walk from the parking lot. I love the concept of mid century retro motels and would love to give this five stars but I just can’t. We had to ask to have our water glasses filled and my Asian tuna salad had a nice flavor but the noodles were either undercooked or wrong for the salad. Still fun to check out.

The menu is small and it doesn’t really matter because we had four of the appetizers and one main and they were all delicious. The service was great abd the views from the restaurant were outstanding. Will go back there when we’re in the area again.

The food was great, the service was impeccable, only thing was we got our drinks after the appetizer which was a bit inconvenient, also this drunk couple showed up cursing and really brining the mellow down. Other than that, keep it up!!!
