We love this place, to sit at the bar, drink good wine and enjoy some great food, very creatively cooked and presented. The seafood is delectable, the spinach salad, warm and to die for, and the paired wine, just right. It is our special place...More

Driven by many times, but hadn't been since they changed over from the Bad Monkey years ago. Definitely an improvement. Nice night so we sat outside, I had the roasted chicken and my wife had all you can eat mussels. Both were fantastic, I really...More

Wine and cheese flight was great, the atmosphere was just right as well. Service was friendly and fast. Crab cakes were ok, lobster roll was more of a lobster "salad roll" but ok nonetheless.

My husband adores the Green Onion. The meals and service have been acceptable but nothing great. The food is typically okay. I've never had a horrible experience but it wouldn't be my recommendation for dining in Norfolk

The food offered has a French quality. We've tried many different dishes, and each one was wonderful! Prices are moderate. Highly recommend!

We ate here during the "between meals" timeframe around 4:30PM on a Friday. We were seated promptly and the server was very friendly and able to answer all questions. Overall, service was a little slow given how empty the restaurant was. The food was very...More
