This restaurant was incredible. Service and food was outstanding. At first I was disappointed in their vegetarian selection but my boyfriend asked if there were any vegetarian specials and there were! One had Portobello mushrooms and the other had tofu. I chose the tofu dish and it was the best tofu I have ever eaten. The seasoning and sauce was... More

The experience for $284 for 3 people eating almost nothing was terrible. The apple salad for $15 was a joke! The conch chowder was the worst! The bill was padded with drinks from another table. After filling out a survey and the manager calling me the next day, he explained that Norman's doesn't care about reviews! Worst experience ever for... More

Had a really nice evening at Normans. Sit outside... The snapper was delicious but I wouldn't suggest the desserts.

When you go to a restaurant and you have a table all to yourself for the whole evening so you can enjoy your company, your wine , your dinner in a beautiful setting.....its like living a fairy tale every time. I enjoy the wine pairing menu and finish with a taste of the cheese kart. The menu itself is a... More

It was my niece's 25th birthday weekend at Disney. Norman's was a great place to surprise her as we were not expected on this trip. They were very accommodating and the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their food and my niece was given a personalized menu to remember her birthday and a great birthday dessert!

Norman's is an oasis in the culinary desert that is Orlando. The food was first rate, the staff friendly and the setting lovely. Yes it is pricey but relative to 100 dollars for something inedible 300 for two does not seem so bad. The child eats for virtually nothing which helps. All in all as I said a much needed... More

The girls in our party were all super fussy and making crazy changes to everything they ordered -- and Lazar our lead waiter was unflappable, accommodating easily all requests. My order was the standard Chilean Sea Bass topped with a sublime lime mint mousse -- and I've never had better Sea Bass. The chef is a genius ! It was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton for his birthday and had the most incredible dinner and service at Norman's. It was our first visit. First of all, our server was Fernando Orriols. He was so knowledgeable about everything on the menu and so polite. The sea bass was wonderful as was the steak. The food was perfectly... More

One of the top restaurant in the country I would say. A bit on expensive side but environment and taste makes it worth every penny you spend. I was at the hotel for conference and would love to go back with family and enjoy Norman's ...
