We celebrated a birthday with family at the Sunday Brunch, an amazing array of delicious food, including made-to-order omlettes and pancakes, and clams, crabs and sometimes oysters. The food is arrayed on tables at the front of the big room, with choices abounding. The service this time was a bit spotty, with plates not being removed and water not being... More

We were there for their buffet lunch for my birthday, but this placed failed to impress. For the price, the spread was small and the food was just average. We've had much better buffets at other 5* places for a lesser price. Not impressed. Heard that their afternoon tea is nice. Hoping that will be a better experience.

Normandie Farm charges a tremendous amount for Holiday Brunch, and the value is not there. The food quality varies (some good, some not so good), but the service was horrible. My silverware was filthy, with brown food crusted on both forks. I gave the dirty forks to our server, and the only response I got was 'We had a huge... More

Normandie Farm is a bright spot of sunlight on a cloudy day. The maître d’s are exceptional responsive to the requests of the diners. And the wait staff will go out of the way to make sure that your visit was enjoyable. Everyone gets a piping hot popover fresh from the oven. And there are people who come here just... More

We dined last night for our 43rd anniversary dinner. I requested a table near the fireplace when I made the reservation. This was a wonderful dining experience. The waiter, the food, the ambience. I would dine here again. The food is pricey, but well worth it. I had the French onion soup, the filet stuffed with crab. Everything was perfect.... More

When we arrived, I wondered why the dining room was almost empty - especially since we waited 25 minutes to be seated after arriving on time with a reservation. When I left I knew why! I expected an "English" Afternoon Tea. It wasn't. All of the food seemed like leftovers from the previous weekend's brunch. Nothing was fresh, not even... More

The complimentary popovers are out of this world! Although my mom enjoys this place, I seem to enjoy it less with each visit. I had the crab imperial stuffed rockfish. Ruined the crab with green peppers. Where's the Proud Popover!?!?!

The setting is great, the food VERY good. It's a busy place so make reservations. We spent time in the lounge as well. It was a client singing night with a remarkably talented piano player (Tom Saputo). Cap off your evening with this experience.

Lousy unimaginative food, uninspired service, should be redone. It's hard to find 100 characters to say about such an awful place.

Exceptional service, terrific food, and outstanding facility. This is the kind of place your folks brought you to as a kid, when people put on a jacket and tie for dinner. We came for lunch, and the crowd was a little thin - which meant we could hold a conversation with no effort. The service was on the spot; and... More
