The server whose name I can’t remember was forgetful had to ask about a drink twice. And gave us a container and then told us that it was on the floor? So why did she give it to us? It was strange. The risotto was ok the scallops were a little salty. My husbands ribeye was great though

We go to Cafe Normandie for the delicious and succulent escargot, but always find another wonderful dish and that night it was the Roasted Corn Risotto with Scallops. The risotto was perfectly prepared and the scallops were plump and beautiful.
(We loved our waiter too.)
We feel so lucky to be able to drive downtown and have such a fantastic meal.
Very lucky and appreciative!

We lucked out and got a last minute reservation d/t the bad weather and cancellations. We were staying right around the corner so we’re able to walk. The ambiance was great, the service impeccable but the real star was the food. Both my husband and I agreed this was the best meal we have had outside of Paris and in our top 5 dinners ever. My husband had the Osso Bucco and I had the Veal Francais. We savored each bite as the food was so good. Would recommend without hesitation!

This is a wonderful place to have a true dining experience. The food is second to none. Always very consistent and incredible.
The staff are beyond friendly. This is our special occasion spot 100% of the time and has turned into our go to spot without needing a special occasion.
You are truly missing out if you haven’t tried this spot.

Madeline, our server, was amazing as was all of the service. Maryland veggie crab soup out of this world along with the Risotto with scallops. Staff was patient as my fiance is gluten free.
Great bottle of Bordeaux and it was half price bottle night!! This was our third/fourth time at Cafe Normandie and once again it did not disappoint!

We always love our visits to Cafe Normandy, and this time we brought visiting family. The decor was beautiful, and the food, as always, was wonderful. The service from our server, who kept disappearing and not checking back to refill drinks, napkins, etc, left a lot to be desired. At one point, we requested assistance from the manager/owner who was tidying up around the hostess/checked in desk, and she passed off our request to someone else and it still took another 10 minutes to get refills. Food was great - service a disappointment!

Went for early dinner price fix menu. Food was excellent and portions were generous; especially considering it is a French restaurant. We sat inside, but outside in tent looked light it would be fine, since they have gas heaters.

Would come back.

the steak and escargot, as well as the wine, were delicious. The pâté and the scallops with linguine were not my favorite, however. Do not recommend those two.
