The food is excellent, the breakfast menu concept is absolutely original, the décor is really contemporary and the place is well suitable for a business conversation or for a special occasion. What really called my attention was the attentive and prompt service of the staff. Norma's is definitely a restaurant where I would like to go back over and over!!!!

Just the best breakfast in town
Brunch at Norma's
By Charnis on 4/17/2003
A wonderful experience, we had a waz-za, what is that?, I had the same question for the wait staff which was very kind and knowledgeable. It was a waffle staffed with berries, topped with banana slices, raspberry hollandaise, brown sugar and bruled. We also had an Egg Whites Fritatta with Jumbo Shrimps, a French Toast Topped with Foie Gras and asparagus and a Very Berry French Toast. The food was out of this world!!!. Ther was so much variety on the menu that it will take a while before we can try everything. Well done!!

Very, very different from any breakfast restaurant out there. Food is great, Deco is beautiful from fabric ceiling to silky fabric walls, w/unordinary fixture shades, to a beautifully maintained floors, this place gets you to feeling relaxed. For an upscale place, the staff is just down to EARTH, it's just wonderful. Food, once you try it, you're a guaranteed addict!
Who would have thought breakfast would be an event?

For my 40th birthday my wife took me for a weekend getaway. We stay at the Palace hotel, but the concierge recommended that we have Sunday breakfast at Norma's in the Parker Meridien. At first I was surprised, but now I know why. My wife had heard of it, but I did not. The food was phenominal and our server, Kim, was upbeat and energetic (even though the crowd and line seemed to be nonstop). When we got there we were told it would be a 45 minute wait (for breakfast??) It was definitely worth every minute. We are going again for her birthday, but this time we are getting there early as the hostess advised.
Breakfast with energy !

Normas is so full of energy & life from the Staff to the music, and for the food what can I say it is the best.
Once isn't enough
By MaryElizabeth on 4/6/2003
If you go here you will agree that once isn't enough! I have been to Norma's 7 times so I think it is time I say something about it! First, I can eat breakfast anytime, so I walk in there at 2:30 in the afternoon for French Toast. Sometimes the Chocolate Decadence, sometimes the Very Very Berry. but it doesn't matter because whatever you order is amazing. The place is really crowded sometimes - so during lunch on the weekdays is my favorite time to go. The staff is really great. Jay (the server) convinced me to have a Waz-Za one time (I think me and my friends had everything else one time or the other) and now I tell everyone they have to have one! You will never eat an eggo again. Go here - bring everyone.

Seeing the Stars!!

Forget the fact that the food is incredible but being able to star watch as you have your morning smoothie is an extra treat.

The only word that can describe Norma's is FANTASTIC!
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
