Tim was such a wonderful bartender that we ended up eating dinner the twice and had drinks the other two nights. So charming and funny with a great dry wit, he is very knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects. He got us a vegan tofu dish that was not ont the menu but really so good that we ordered... More

We plan on a visit to Norman's when we are in Orlando, FL. Since our last visit they had discontinued the eight course tasting menu. We were disappointed, but our waiter worked with us, and we chose several dishes which were split in the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our very own "tasting menu." The food was delicious and Norman's remains... More

The main restaurant of the Ritz Carlton. That typically would be enough to just stop writing now. Great service, great food (we both had Sea Bass over a rice/ham bedding) that was excellent tasting. And the atmosphere is superb. Prices are kind of high ($38 for the Sea Bass), but not totally outrageous. It was good to splurge a bit.... More

Dine here. I had an absolutely exceptional dining experience at Norman's while staying at the JW Marriott for a mini vacay. I did have quite an initial wait once seated (but they were totally packed) but the service from there on out was amazing. The food and ambience were all excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable regarding the food and... More

I attended a conference at this hotel where each day there was a breakfast and lunch buffet for attendees at Norman's. I can't speak to normal service, but it was great set up as a buffet. The servers were helpful to get drink refills. There were two double-sided buffets set up which helped attendees flow through the line quickly. The... More

I selected this restaurant for a 60th birthday celebration while staying in Orlando. I always select the tasting menu, when available, as it gives an excellent opportunity for experiencing a range of dishes. I cannot fault this restaurant on anything. The staff, service, food and ambience were all excellent and we received a complimentary glasss of Champagne for the occasion... More

Good food, nice setting, especially the outside tables. Far quieter and more civilized than the other eating places in the Ritz Carlton.

What a treat! I can not wait to return in the future. The food was outstanding. Don't pass up the bread and butter they offer. I had the sea bass and it was prepared to perfection. Enjoy!!

To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we dined at Norman's. From the start, it was a special evening. They were aware of our celebration and everyone congratulated us. The meal was spectacular. The Brazilian Styled Creamy Cracked Conch Chowder was as unique as it was delicious. The Pork "Havana" was artfully presented and comes with instructions on how to best enjoy... More

One of the top 10 best dinner experiences of my life and trust me, there have been many. We went there for my friends birthday and his girlfriend had called in advance to make sure the Wagyu Steaks were available for us. For someone who lives a few blocks from Bern's in Tampa, I can say that I know a... More
