We enjoyed several small plates! The pork belly sliders, jumbo lump crab 🦀 cake and selection of artisanal cheeses, candied walnuts, apples, warm bread & fig jam were good. They have a extensive beer and wine menu. Save room for the profiteroles for dessert! We were surprised that a 20% gratuity was automatically added to our bill! 🍽

We got the valentines special which was very expensive for what we got. Main entrees were tiny and not that good.

The food was delicious and unique! Our server Brittany was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. My husband has French Onion soup every restaurant he can find it offered, he said Normandy was the best he’s had. Everyone raves about the crab cakes and walleye. We completely agree. We would add the French onion soup and Brussel sprouts to dishes that are wonderful. If you park in the Best Western parking lot they validate the ticket. This restaurant and food are really special. I can’t wait to go back.

The staff is very friendly and fun. It was a perfect setting for our group. I don’t know why there weren’t more people dining there. The food and cocktails were really good! Dining room has a great feel. Very comfortable.

We stayed at the Normandy Inn to attend a gopher hockey game. We decided to eat at the hotel and we were not disappointed. We had excellent food and delivered quit fast. We enjoyed the bar also before dinner, excellent setting with views out beautiful windows. We definitely would stay and eat at the Normandy again.

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. The food at the Normandy is consistent and the ambiance is great. I love the open windows in the summer months and the occasional live music. This place is a gem!

The popovers are worth their price along with all the reasonably priced entrees. Cozy decor with an old world feel.

We celebrated my mother's 60th birthday here as a family. It was a really nice place to eat! The food was good, and it was actually quiet enough that we could hear each other talk.
