Norman's at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Ratings and Reviews
This was a real treat. Recommended by my daughter who comes to Orlando on business and had taken clients to Norman's. I am here for a conference and so am dining alone. From start to finish it was elegant, relaxed and perfect. Fernando (assisted by James) was delightful. I never felt rushed or, as sometimes happens, ignored because I was a single. The food was outstanding ... A very special meal. I was early so had a drink in the lobby bar which was also welcoming and very pretty. I am not sure I can afford to STAY at the Ritz Carlton for 4 nights (my trip here) but I SURE would head over there for the best meal in Orlando. Bar none. Outstanding.
David was a terrific server.
The bartender who calculated the bill charged us for drinks that another table ordered!
It was extremely embarrassing for bringing up to padded bill in front of our guest.
The worst thing is that the incorrect bill of $283 has already been charged to my debit card in addition to the corrected bill of $241 now have been charged over $ $524 for this meal!
This was a terrible experience!
Plus I know nothing will be done to correct this!
How could a top restaurant do this!
I am reporting this to OpenTable, Yelp, and anybody else I can!
Here David was terrific as the server ; but, what kind of systems do you have that would allow such an embarrassing and costly meal! I am out $524 plus the $48 tip for David based on the corrected bill of $241!
Worst experience in years!
Top notch in every category. Started off with the apple walnut salad, portion was very small but good nonetheless. The vast selection of bread and the olive oils and seasonings dazzled us. For the main meal I had the pork chop and it was DIVINE. Best pork I have ever had. Finally, I had the flan for dessert and it was on another level. The mango glaze it was served on top of was a fresh new take on the dessert I have had so many times, separating this one from all the others. In addition to great food, the staff was amazing. Our water glasses were always full and everyone was super polite and friendly. Overall perfect way to spend an Easter night and I will be back!
We went to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary at Normans and experience was just amazing.
The tapas and filet mignon were spectacular and the service outstanding.
Our server Fernando made our evening a one to remember. Fernando gave us excellent food recommendations and made us feel like we were at home.
We will definitely come back to Normans and will recommend to our family and friends to visit the best restaurant in Orlando.
Norman's is one of the tops in Orlando when it comes to fine dining! The service is outstanding and the food presentation and preparation are excellent. My wife and I like to share many of our menu selections and the staff could not of acquiesced to our wishes in any better manner.
This place is a sensorial experience for all. Food, the combination of ingredients was creative and visually appealing. Decore, masculine but formal and comfortable. The staff, while young are experts at delivering the chefs messages. They are polite and talkative. My meal of cerviche then sea bass encrusted was extraordinary. I wish I lived local but now when in Orlando, Norman's is a must.
We were very pleased with everything about the dining experience we had at Normans. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helped with food choices. I had the sea bass over risotto and it was superb. My wife had Asian chicken wth noodles and she loved it, very tender .
