    Decor is impressive. Food super tasty & well presented. Service lacking. Could be a sign of the times? Unfriendly welcome (after at least 2 reminders to confirm) & told my guest was here only to be sat apart from her for 20 mins (on a different floor).

    We had a lunch for two, the set menu; focaccia with figs, olives and pumpkin, then a cheese and pepper pasta, then sea bass for me and parmagiana for my wife, then granita and tiramisu for dessert. The ambience was nice, perhaps a little quiet, and the service was good. The room was nicely decorated. The meal was good, but at about £105 with no alcohol or coffee, it may be a while before we return.

    We booked a 5pm table - obviously it was quiet when we arrived and we were seated at a small 2 seater booth ( we were 2 people ) moments later two customers arrived enquired about the pasta deal for £15 a head and were seated in a spacious booth for 4! Makes no sense to give a bargain hunter a big table and another guest a small table especially as our bill was over £200! We had been looking forward to dining at Norma after hearing such rave reviews - we were disappointed- the food was .... just average - we ate a lot! Octopus, arancini,a pasta course ( Cornish crab spaghetti and a ragu type pasta ) then lamb cutlets with borlotti beans can’t remover what my husband had , potatoes with truffle and dessert., we didn’t hold back !The service was friendly and charming and the dining room is very well designed. Glad we have been but would not return in a rush!

    What a fantastic restaurant. Greeted very warmly on arrival and with great and knowledgeable service. Food was exceptional with an interesting varied menu. Would definitely recommend a visit - covid precautions were good with distancing, screens and hand sanitiser on every table etc.

    First time to Norma and we were really impressed. We had a leisurely family lunch which we really enjoyed. We had small plates to start with the octopus and arancini real favourites. Then we had a pasta course with the Norma and crab bucatini- both delicious. Then we had bream and aubergine large plates with a tiramisu to finish! It was all so tasty the wines were nice and the service was very friendly. What a treat!

    Sadly, but understandably, empty. We were greeted warmly and it seemed appreciated that we were there. Nice room(s), interesting menu, good service, well-executed food, good wine list. If there is a gripe, the menu was a little pricey. Definitely worth a visit for business, friends or romance.

    I saw Norma mentioned on tv and my husband and I thought we would give it a try. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were made to feel very welcome and the food and service was excellent. We would definitely return for another visit in the future.

    We celebrated a family birthday on a Saturday lunchtime and had a superb meal. The service was extremely good and all the courses came quickly. The whole experience could not be faulted. We shall certainly return and recommend this lovely restaurant to friends.

    Norma occupies the site of Chez Gerard, which was a long-standing place to get onglet and chips. Its collapse was regrettable, and the replacement by Brasserie Blanc a pale and unsatisfactory affair. Passing by the other day, however, they were photographing fish in the window and the menu looked interesting, so I booked lunch and got a very pleasant surprise, because the food and reception were all outstanding. This is a most welcome addition to the Charlotte Street eating environment. We are telling all our friends.

    So many great reviews when first opened and yet less than 4 months later a total disappointment. Slow disinterested service (even from the sommelier), tepid food, and truly tiny portions.

    Pleasant atmosphere, competent and friendly service- food was OK, but not exceptional , and on the pricey side for what it was.

    The staff were amazing! So kind and thoughtful. But wow, the food was really disappointing. The spaghettini fritters were the highlight - Arancini good too. The pasta alla Norma - which I am guessing should be the highlight (namesake) was super meh. Really no taste - the pasta not hot enough and not nearly melanzane. Other dishes (Pork Chop and veggies) were mediocre as well. Not sure why it was recommended via a Open Table.

    Firstly I must say the service was exceptional but I’m afraid the food was not up it. The menu is confused and limited so little to choose from. The little snacks to start were indeed little and nothing special. For the main course I had the rigatoni pasta with aubergine which was tasteless and smell of the cheese was overwhelming. I’m sorry Norma I won’t be back unless the food improves and the choice.
