Love the food here, the wait is always long but worth it in the long run. Love the coffee and the frozen fresh fruit smoothies they give you with your breakfast, also the fresh oj. We always try to share dishes are big enough for 2, this way it is not that expensive. Try the waffles with the fruit, wasa i think waffles...excellent Also, the macadamia pancakes...even the lunch items looked interesting like the salads etc....All in all, the best breakfast in NY, with good service and a nice atmosphere but unfortunately a much too long wait to get in.

I've been to Norma's several times and I must say that the chunks of lobster swimming in cheesy macaroni is one of their best dishes. Don't bother to look at the price, just order it.

Went here a couple of weeks ago after reading about the place for some time. I don't mind paying $17 for pancakes as a periodic indulgence, but I'd like better service when doing it. The service was very slow and inattentive and the waiter wasn't tied up with other tables he was simply off to the side chatting. He never filled the water glasses or even asked if I wanted any water. The food was good and so was the atmosphere, but the service kept me from enjoying it as much as I had hoped and will probably keep me from going back.

After hearing about one of the best brunches in the city, I tried this place this Sunday. The coffee and OJ prices are ridiculous. Although we probably did not order the house specials (the pancakes, french toast, or crepes), the food was good but not great. If you have another favorite brunch place go there instead next time...you could eat there both weekend days for the price of one meal at Norma's.

Yes, the prices are a bit higher than you typically pay in the morning/afternoon, but it is definitely worth it. I have never had a bad dish here- I particularly recommend the blueberry pancakes, crunchy french toast, lobster & asparagus omelette, and the chocolate french toast (mainly for the afternoon as it is too sweet for first thing in the morning, I think). The service can be hit-or-miss, but I've never had any serious service problems. And personally, I enjoy the background jazz music.

I've been here a few times and the food is delicious. They serve breakfast until afternoon so you can have breakfast for lunch. I've tried the country-style buttermilk pancakes (to die for) as well as the blueberry pancakes, potato pancakes and egg white omlette. (all very good). Friends have had crepes, eggs benedict and french toast. The only complaint was that the french toast was too soggy in the middle. They kill you on the bill thanks to high prices of coffee and juice but the food is definitely worth the price. I'll eat here again - I hope!

OMG! The waz-za is excellent. My husband had the french toast and was equally impressed. Didn't need lunch. Portion size is great and the bottomless glass of orange juice was fresh, fresh, fresh. Can't wait to go back.
