I have been here about 12 times over the years and have always enjoyed the atmosphere as much as the food. It is a quaint little bistro with a creative chef. Food is always over the top. Reservations recommended.

I found this quaint ambiance to be welcoming and serves really good food. Their hours are sometimes a little off but well worth a visit to Norma Jean's

I have to admit, I got talked into trying a bite of my first ceasar salad. Anything now pale's in comparison. I have had one at other place's, but it's never been the same. Fresh ingredient's at a fair price. HUGE portion's as well.
