Trou Normand is great place to eat cured meats and sip crafty cognac cocktails.
Outstanding charcuterie! The pork is unbelievable. Service wonderful. Great cocktails. Definitely unique menu of you love meat!
It took almost 3 hours for the meal despite asking for quicker service
Perfection as always
Trou Normand was the perfect spot to kick off a Saturday MOMA + brunch date! The little gem salad was yummy and they are NOT messing around with the Cubano - its sooo good! The delightfully chill atmosphere, cool jazzy tunes and classically beautiful decor made it tough to leave but we had art to see. Can’t wait to come back!
Trou Normand is a very unique restaurant. Inside it is quite pretty, but most of the seating is outside under a tent, which is OK but not great. The food is OK but seemed a bit expensive. The olives were really good, and the steak we ordered was fantastic, but gosh it better be for the price we paid ($40 for about 12 oz a la carte?) The broccoli and farro side dishes were just OK. Empanadas were pretty good. There are about 20 different types of salami on the menu. They were pretty good but wow, again, expensive. The service was incredibly relaxed, despite our repeated pleas that we needed to get to a show. Overall, not a bad night but definitely not a great one either.
Fantastic experience. Classy but not unfriendly. Warm ambience. Wonderful food. Only disappointment was I informed them it was my fiancé's birthday but no special dessert, special menu, or even special mention was made. Otherwise experience was good enough to overlook this.
The best charcuterie I've ever had. I have never had anything else from the menu, just charcuterie and cheeses and lovely cocktails.
Real cool space, ok lunch food. Dinner may be better
Vegetarian options are extremely limited.
Not a good place for vegetarians. They have almost nothing for them.
Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had!
The burger was tasty but looked so sad and lonely on a small plate with no sides. Kind of ridiculous that their sandwiches don't come with even a token few leafs if lettuce on the side.
My five coworkers and I picked Trou Normand for our holiday celebration lunch and it turned out to be an enjoyable, relaxed-paced meal together. The service was very friendly and attentive!
This was great! Wish they had a few more vegetarian or fish options.
They were wonderful! It was our anniversary, and they made us feel special. The food was on point, and the service excellent. Highly recommend!
Great selection of charcuterie. And some fine cheeses. Moreover, the cocktails were good as well
Heat lamps were not working, noise level made it hard to hear the other end of the table, service was slow and uncoordinated
Very limited menu for Saturday brunch. Delicious hamburger
After three dinners at Trou Normand, we've decided to keep it in our regular rotation. The house-made salumi and pates are terrific, the seasonal food is always exciting. Cocktails, of course, are exceptional. And service has always been friendly and appropriately attentive.
Delicious food. Limited menu.
Really great food. The porkchop hit the spot for us and we ended up ordering more.
For those like us who really really enjoy paté, salami, great mustard, crispy epic and wonderful olives and almonds, this place is unbeatable and totally unique in its offerings. On a Friday lunch every one else ate out back outside but we had the inside all to ourselves. Totally enjoyable,.
The pork chop was perfect!
Do NOT go here for brunch. Food is crazy overpriced and very limited menu. Service was obviously not in the mood to be there. We were not offered any drinks and service took forever when there was no one else in the restaurant. Space was beautiful and the potatoes were good. That was the only 2 positives of our meal.
Modern elegant decor, amazing food and staff ! Love this place
Went to Trou Normand for a celebratory work lunch with my team. Great ambiance and service. Definitely sit outside if you can – refreshing to find such a delightful and private outdoor patio in the middle of downtown San Francisco. Great spot for more adventurous meat lovers (generous charcuterie portions!)
My only wish was for a more extensive wine list, food, service and vibe were all excellent.
Great experience! We loved all of the selections and had wonderful service. Thank you!
This place always delivers. Love the open kitchen. Pop your head in and say hi.
Service was great. And the drinks are always unique, and spirit forward. Perfect. I've been here every few months as I live nearby, and also have recommended repeatedly. After the menu changes, and tonight's food...it's unlikely moving forward. No more arancini. Extremely limited vegetables. Outside of the charcuterie, majority of the menu is beef or pork related. Menu should have a balance with other items. We ordered the four piece charcuterie, the accoutrement platter (figs, grapes, sauce), pork chop, and soup for dinner. The platter was basically incredibly good toasted bread with 2 halved figs and fancy apple sauce and some grapes for $15. The charcuterie was amazing as usual and the pork chop is a must order.
Then, the dessert. Here is the huge fail. Peaches served with fromage Blanc $8. What we received... Four thin slices of peach on top of warm large curd cottage cheese. No flavor, no sauce, and looked straight off a hospital tray. I'm not exaggerating. Fromage Blanc definition is creamy and soft (not what we got). We left it on the table after sharing the 1/8th of a peach they gave us for $8.
When the server didn't see us eating it, we shared simply that it wasn't that good. Dinner was okay, but dessert was a huge miss. And we should have been offered something else when we barely touched it.
The food was pretty tasty, but there was a shocking lack of vegetable options on the side. I know they are a meat focused restaurant, but there was no broccoli, brussel sprouts, or something of that nature to add to the meal so it didn't feel so heavy. The steak came out medium well when it was ordered medium rare, but the server was quick to replace it. It was also rather expensive. None of the meat dishes came with anything substantial on the side, and for $30-50+ per dish, I would have expected more of a complete meal.
I love Trou Normand! I work near there and go often for lunch or after work for drinks. It's different but very cool. Love the atmosphere and all the food is very good, esp the roast beef sandwich on grilled bread!
I wouldn't go back here - menu was very limited if you don't want pork, portions were small, waitress was impatient. Outdoor seating area was beautiful.
Nice atmosphere. Love the mural above the bar. Great drinks. Very meat-heavy so vegetarians may have a hard time.
Absolutely wonderful food, the menu is constantly being updated which keeps things interesting. The service is wonderful and its usually not too busy. Definitely a hidden gem.
Food is excellent! Service seems slow, especially for first drink.
We were here with two other couples celebrating a 60th birthday. We ordered the chef-chosen charcuterie plate, which was fantastic. We ordered several veg dishes and several entrees and treated it family style. Our server was lovely and attentive. The restaurant has a European vibe and was lively without being a noise-bomb.
We found the lunch menu a bit limited but the building is nice. Cheese plate was quite nice.
Good but not great. Service was just okay; we were fighting to get our server's attn. overall, a disappointing experience compared to the first time we dined there.
Really thoughtful, wonderful service and food! The atmosphere is airy, light and they've decorated with amazing art. We were a party of 5, all ages and were sat and serviced right away at prime time on a Sunday. Thanks for everything, highly recommend. Don't forget the little bites like the almonds, beignets, and olives!
