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 ...

Beautiful restaurant, exquisite food, excellent service. I would go back in a heartbeat. The fish was amazing! The steak was prepared perfectly. The smoked lamb empanada melted in our mouths. Can't wait to return!

The restaurant was fully committed so we chose to sit at the bar which ended up being a fantastic experience. Tim the bartender and his beautiful co-bartender were extremely helpful. They mixed wonderful cocktails, they help to select a perfect Frank Family Vineyard Cabernet wine. They directed us through the menu options and we were incredibly happy. The Foie Gras... More

Tim was such a wonderful bartender that we ended up eating dinner the twice and had drinks the other two nights. So charming and funny with a great dry wit, he is very knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects. He got us a vegan tofu dish that was not ont the menu but really so good that we ordered... More

We plan on a visit to Norman's when we are in Orlando, FL. Since our last visit they had discontinued the eight course tasting menu. We were disappointed, but our waiter worked with us, and we chose several dishes which were split in the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our very own "tasting menu." The food was delicious and Norman's remains... More

The main restaurant of the Ritz Carlton. That typically would be enough to just stop writing now. Great service, great food (we both had Sea Bass over a rice/ham bedding) that was excellent tasting. And the atmosphere is superb. Prices are kind of high ($38 for the Sea Bass), but not totally outrageous. It was good to splurge a bit.... More

Dine here. I had an absolutely exceptional dining experience at Norman's while staying at the JW Marriott for a mini vacay. I did have quite an initial wait once seated (but they were totally packed) but the service from there on out was amazing. The food and ambience were all excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable regarding the food and... More

I attended a conference at this hotel where each day there was a breakfast and lunch buffet for attendees at Norman's. I can't speak to normal service, but it was great set up as a buffet. The servers were helpful to get drink refills. There were two double-sided buffets set up which helped attendees flow through the line quickly. The... More
