When we arrived, I wondered why the dining room was almost empty - especially since we waited 25 minutes to be seated after arriving on time with a reservation. When I left I knew why! I expected an "English" Afternoon Tea. It wasn't. All of the food seemed like leftovers from the previous weekend's brunch. Nothing was fresh, not even... More

The complimentary popovers are out of this world! Although my mom enjoys this place, I seem to enjoy it less with each visit. I had the crab imperial stuffed rockfish. Ruined the crab with green peppers. Where's the Proud Popover!?!?!

The setting is great, the food VERY good. It's a busy place so make reservations. We spent time in the lounge as well. It was a client singing night with a remarkably talented piano player (Tom Saputo). Cap off your evening with this experience.

Lousy unimaginative food, uninspired service, should be redone. It's hard to find 100 characters to say about such an awful place.

Exceptional service, terrific food, and outstanding facility. This is the kind of place your folks brought you to as a kid, when people put on a jacket and tie for dinner. We came for lunch, and the crowd was a little thin - which meant we could hold a conversation with no effort. The service was on the spot; and... More

We have always enjoyed being at Normandie Farm Restaurant. The food is good and the service is very nice. The atmosphere of a country inn is very charming.

It's perfect for a family gathering at a Sunday Brunch. Our group of six ranged from ages 81 to 8. All enjoyed the expansive buffet. The atmosphere is charming. The service was attentive. The popovers are what bring us back.

We always enjoy dining at this lovely "Inn." It is traditional country French in decor, but the food is both French and American. We first ate here in 1968 for our third anniversary. It had been written up in a travel magazine with full page picture of dining rooms, etc. My father-in-law sent us a check (for $25) and we... More

We were here celebrating a 20th anniversary and while the waiters were very attentive, no one cracked a smile. The atmosphere in the main dining room was decidedly stifling. The beef wellington was good and cooked as ordered but the house pate was dry and tough. The french onion soup was ok, nothing special and I've had better lobster bisque... More

This restaurant has been here for many decades. It's still a grand place to go to dine. The freshly baked popover is the foremost reason to go back again and again. Had the chicken liver mousse and the duck confit, both traditional French dishes and cooked just so. They give me nice-sized portions too. Bring the whole family with you... More
