Norman's is a restaurant that serves flavorful dishes from Latin America, the Caribbean, the U.S., and the Far East. We enjoyed our time there. Our server was great.

I wanted to treat my husband to a romantic night out alone (toddlers back at the resort with Auntie) and I really outdid myself with Normans. Our attentive waiter, Joseph, suggested the 4 course tasting menu ($80) and the wine flight ($45), which we giddily agreed to. We started off with a conch chowder. A bowl filled with colorful bits of red, green and yellow peppers, chopped cilantro, mandarin oranges, and conch. They poured the broth in from small copper pitchers at tableside - they do this so you can see all the yummy ingrediants for yourself. Superb!!! The wine was lite and fruity; I wish I could remember the name, but it matched the soup perfectly. The next course was a verde curry snapper over pad tai noodles - the spicy sweetness was a perfect balance on the palate. This was served with Saki - my husband had never had it before and he really loved it. Our main course was a succulent pork loin chop grilled to perfection and served with three (mole, sherry reduction and a plantain sauce) incredible dipping sauces. My mouth waters just thinking about it again!! They paired this with a robust red wine from Chille. Dessert arrived as rum soaked bananas with homemade Macademia nut ice cream - I couldn't finish it, but I wanted to. The wine was a sherry, which was a bit too much for our tastebuds. The plates and glasses came and went without any delays and we never felt rushed. We sat down at 7pm and left around 9pm. The decor and service was elegant yet very relaxed. It was such an incredible dinner and will go down as one of my all time favorites.

Pros: complimentary valet, attentive and friendly service, great wine list

Cons: I was too full to add the cheese course!!

I am lucky to dine out a lot in many of the fine restaurants around the country and Norman's is consistently one of my top three favorites. The service and ambience are perfect. The menu dishes are creative and clever without the silliness you find in a lot of top end restaurants. This is one of the rare places where I would eat anything they brought to the table with confidence it would be fantastic. They even make a great martini. The only complaint I have about Norman's is that when I finish my meal I can't start all over and have another one!!!!

This place is perfection. The food is phenomenal, the staff unbelievable, and the atmosphere superb. We have never been to a better restaurant before or since and we tell everyone we know, if you're ever in Orlando, GO! True, it can be considered a little pricey, but it's well worth every penny! Our motto since discovering Norman's? "Life is too short to eat cheap food!" Really, if you ever have the opportunity, Go To Norman's! You will not be disappointed.

In one word "YUM". You have to try the conch chowder - amazing. We loved it so much we ate there two nights in a row last weekend. We are going back for more tonight and bringing 5 friends. My new favorite!
