    We had a great experience! The food was fast, hot, and delicious. Our server was very friendly and flexible when one member wanted to make a change to their order. We came early before it got busy, so there was hardly anyone there, and it was very quiet. I highly recommend it for brunch!

    Cafe Normandie was a great little cafe for breakfast after Mass! I got the breakfast crepe and my husband got the steak frites, the food was delicious and kept me full for most of the day. A lovely little place to eat at!

    We had been looking forward to an evening at the Cafe Normandie as a special occasion with our two cousins from Denmark. It was as good as ever, based on many dinners for the two of us over the past few years. Each of our four had different mains. My Crepe Normandie was excellent, with their perfect Normandie-style crepe, thin, and nearly plate sized diameter, filled with shrimp, scallops, fish and mushrooms in a rich lobster sauce. One of our guests remarked about the taste and tenderness of her Beef Bourgulgnos. We split two soft-shell crab mains (each having two crabs) for our starters. When not in season, my go-to starter is their escargots, the best I have had anywhere in the world, including Paris. Chef Jean-Louis came out to greet us, which especially impressed the Danes.

    Very disappointing! We had not been there in years and thought it was worth a try, but will not go back. Our table was terrible - a small hard booth with benches similar to a McDonalds from the 1970s. Restaurant was nearly empty for a Friday night as if we missed the sign outside warning us not to go in (FYI, there are Michelin starred restaurants that also charge a $25 cancelation fee…). The food was bland, borderline French, overpriced and had lost its culinary way years ago, maybe at the Battle of Waterloo. If you would have told me that this was the included meal on some sort of low budget all inclusive tour through Paris, Idaho (no offense to Paris, Idaho) I would believe you. The attempt to be chic faux copper water cups made the water taste like you were drinking from an aluminum foil cone and the paper napkins were the piece de resistance! In a word, non!

    The food was good. Service was very bad. I asked for the following multiple times: 2x: Asked for bread 3x: asked for limes (never came) 2x: pineapple juice 5x: a spoon for soup Also due to the bad service we did not get dessert. I told the waiter that we do not eat shellfish and they made the pasta dish with shrimp. Because of this mistake we were eating our food at different times. I’m not trying to get the wait staff fired but this issue should be fixed. They know what they did and we weren’t discounted anything and the staff did not do anything to make it right.
