About Trou Normand
San Francisco, CA 94103
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
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.
I made reservations but they were a half an hour late in seating us. They gave us a drink or two on the house but bimmedwr had to wait a while. The food was very good and the service was just fair. A little noisy but not too bad. Charcuterie and pork chop was great and the sides were too
Everything was seasonal and tasty! A charcuterie sampler, pasta, salad, and side left two women stuffed! It seemed like a good value and I would come back. Also, it seems to have a large space so could be good for groups or when you don't have a reservation.
Has not disappointed in any of my few visits. On the pricier side, but food is quality and worth it. Menu changes, but they have something for everyone. Chopped Salad is great and filling, as well as the Avocado Sandwich, and I've heard the pastas are very good. Excellent patio dining in the back - perfect for business lunches, as unlike most places in SF, you can actually hear the person across from you without shouting.
Aloof service, small portions, ear-splitting noise levels, and awkward booth seating marred appreciation of the otherwise small but excellent though absurdly pricey menu. Trou Normand has successfully transitioned from a fun lively place with great food to quite possibly the worst value in a city. That stated, this past Tuesday it was packed full of bright shiny techies clamoring to buy $12 Belgium beer and $16/glass minimal pour meh wine. I may not be back for a while....
We arrived when the restaurant opened for lunch. There were tables available, but we were seated in a very small booth with another couple. It was strange and had we known this was their policy ahead of time, we would not have chosen to eat here. The food was good and the cocktails were very strong. I used my dining reward gift certificate here, but will not return to this restaurant due to the seating arrangements.
Menu was fairly limited. The food was good but definitely not standout for San Francisco. The wine list was especially limited and highly focused on old world wines. The space is well-suited to groups and I found this to be the primary strength. Overall, a pleasant experience with attentive service but mediocre food and wine by SF standards and price.
Our table reservations were lambs hind schedule but manager after 10 min came to offer us an appetizer, then a drink.
When we finally got our table manager brought us a assorted platter of appetizer on the house...
They went above and beyond to make up for being 10m late...
Great service and amazing food.
I would definitely go back and also recommend Trou Normand to anyone...
