About Trou Normand
Named for the northern French tradition of a shot of brandy between courses, this second location, from the owners of James Beard Award winning Bar Agricole, unites the pleasures of traditional mixed drinks and uncomplicated food.
The focus of the kitchen is house-made charcuterie and salumi. As many as 40 types of charcuterie are available on the all-day menu. Seasonal sides and simple cuts of meat round out the dinner options.
The focus of the drink menu is brandy. Many of the Armagnacs, Cognacs and Calvados served at Trou Normand and Bar Agricole are found nowhere else in the world.

Trou Normand Ratings and Reviews
While the food was good and obviously well-sourced, the ambience was cold and I don't really want to sit with other people which is how the seating is done. Our waitperson totally mixed up our order - we didn't get what we ordered for our main dish, they forgot a side, and no one really knew what kind of bread was used for toast which seems like a no brainer. They were friendly but for a good restaurant with higher pricing one expects better service.
I was really disappointed in Trou Normand's brunch. I had been there for lunch once before and thought it would be a fun place to take my aunt and friend for brunch. It was a disaster the whole way through. The hipster waiters seemed far more interested in having a beard convention than waiting on tables. Their vegetarian offerings or modifications were pitiful. Literally they gave my friend lettuce with olives chopped egg and a sprinkling of cheese. Hardly a meal. Then my aunt and I ordered poached eggs and sausage. Our sausage was raw in the middle which was first disputed by our waiter and then when she asked for a burger well done because she was grossed out by raw pork sausage, they gave her a burnt burger. We had to be reseated because the noise level on the patio was so loud that we literally couldn't hear each other. It was just a #fail all around. Sunday brunch crew: get your sh&t together.
Upon arrival, the 4 of us were taken to an (empty) communal table with high, uncomfortable seats. When I expressed my dissatisfaction, the server was very responsive: she comped me a cocktail, and also gave each of us an armagnac sample while we waited for a booth to clear. Very classy! The charcuterie/salumi were delicious; actually everything was delicious! Highly recommended!
If you love charcuterie and the freshest of fresh homemade salumi, you have got to try this place. The pork burger, chopped salad and mozzarella sandwich are what we ordered and I've got to go back and have it all...all over again. Professional and pleasant bartender when wine dined this week. Only downside is the limited seating in the main room so sometimes they ask you to share a table. Seems to be commonplace these days but not my favorite.
The food was outstanding, though.
Never go here, so that the REST OF US CAN FLOCK TO IT! I have lived around the corner from this place for two and a half years, and I will never ever, get those back! The charcuterie plates are to die for, and their entrees are outstanding! Run! Don't walk, to brunch and dinner!
My roommate and I came here for New Years Eve dinner, and we could not have been happier. The staff was incredibly friendly and very hands-off, which is something I love. They gave us all the time to slowly make our way through the meal, and were great at reading when we wanted something else or were done with our plates.
The food was unbelievable. We look back with such fond memories of the meatballs, ha! Really an amazing experience with food that will defiantly have me coming back for more.
They put us in a table outside with no heat on. Then when we kindly asked if we could be seated inside, they said they will try with the host and then put us in a table where all 3 of us were seated in the same row - unable to speak to each other. The service was unattentive, uncaring. We left early without ordering mains. Will certainly not be back.
New Years Eve was the occasion for our visit!
Seating in the atrium for our group of eight was too cold and uncomfortable. The heat lamps did not provide enough heat.
Three in our party had the pork chop and thought it was delicious but also that it had too much fat left on. It also could have come with something like a vegetable or starch. Several in our party thought the food was overly salty.
On the whole, we had high expectations since it was a Chronicle Top 100 restaurant. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in the overall experience.
Been to lunch and absolutely loved the food and the ambiance. The only concern of mine is I took my parents to Trou Normand when they came to visit me and even though I loved and enjoyed my food VERY MUCH, the food didn't really appeal to them. I guess it is a wonderful place for people looking for innovative (and delicious) approach to food that you probably had many times. FOODIES, definitely it is a place you would want to go!!
I went to Trou Normand for lunch with a group of five family members. We were seated promptly in a comfortable booth. Service was attentive and fast. The dining room has high ceilings and feels very spacious, unlike so many SF restaurants. The food was good, but by no means amazing, and felt somewhat overpriced, especially for lunch. The bread on my tartine and on another sandwich was burned (I am all for toasted, but it was black). One of us got a crab salad. It was a tiny salad, not nearly enough to make a meal, and had very little crab in it. The schnitzel (I was told) was very good. The coffee was so sour as to be barely drinkable.
I don't think I'll be going be back there, unless I can expense the meal.
