    Dined on 5/18/2013
    We have always enjoyed this interesting restaurant in an old private club building. During our last visit in 2012, however, it seemed to be getting a bit too expensive for what they offered. Now they also have a tapas menu which is more reasonably priced, and more creative than the regular menu. We went that way this time and it was excellent. Portions are in fact a bit large for tapas; we each had a starter plus 2 dishes, and it was almost too much food......no space left for dessert. Service was good and friendly, and the wine list offers good selections at reasonable prices.

    We chose this restaurant for our Mothers' day treat for mom, and we all enjoyed the food, ambiance, and especially the friendly, impeccable service. Mom liked the martini list, dad liked the wine list, we all yummed over the great desserts. All food courses pleased the palate, albeit my entree arrived a little less than hot and mom's prime rib a little less than medium rare. Otherwise would have been five stars all the way.

    Service was good. Food was good. The beef was VERY tender and had a good taste, but we told the server that it might have been marinated for too long. It was quite salty. Otherwise, it was very good. The Lamb was also very good. I'd recommend Trilogy to anyone.

    Server Annie was excellent. She recommended a very good Chardonnay which was not on the wine list by the glass. Restaurant was a former bank so it had interesting decor. Had a nice quiet dinner on a Sunday night. Would go back again if in Norfolk.

    Our dining experience was so nearly perfect that I hesitate to say anything negative, but I ordered my filet medium rare and it came medium. I entertained the idea of sending it back, but we were on our way to a play and the evening was so perfect, I decided not to make a big deal of it. The Ceasar salad was the best ever! I will definitely go back soon!

    Absolutely outstanding service all around. Server's recommendations were spot on from appetizer (seared scallop chef special) to mains (rack of lamb and veal) and wine selection. We had a nice view of the kitchen through glass at the end of our booth which added to the old bank ambiance like watching the money counting room. Minor negative in that Ceasar salad did not have hint of anchovy. Desert chef special lemon coconut cake was excellent

    Dinner was good, our server Hannah was polite, friendly and knew the menu which is always a great start. The first course was good, the fried calamarie was very good, the oysters had too much going on and you could not taste the main feature without dissecting the crab from the oyster. My husband chose the special of the night ~ scallops, which were delicious. Dessert was pretty darn good we had the Creme Brûlée and the Strawberry Napoleon.

    The special for the night, Osso Bucco was way overcooked and hard, and the she crab soup was overly salty, both items were sent back to the kitchen. The crabcakes were delicious. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more professional. Unfortunately we would have a hard time recommending this restaurant.

    You simply must dine here! The food was prepared as near to "perfection" as one could get. Ambiance unsurpassed. I can honestly say we have always had a great meal at Trilogy Bistro; except once during restaurant week. Word to the Wise: Don't go to any restaurant during "Restaurant Week" that you want to truly experience.

    One dish was cold when it arrived at the table and the other was over cooked. They were already out of main courses on the menu which was disturbing due to the fact that it was an early reservation on a Saturday night. Poor planning on someone's part. Probably mine because I decided to go to Trilogy.

    The ambiance in this small restaurant is very nice. I love the candle lights on the table. Our appetizers were good and the service was ok. It was not busy when we went so our food was out fast. The only issue we had was that the risotto was undercooked. Definitely not what we was expecting from this type of establishment. We did get offered a free dessert but I was a little upset about the food so we passed. This was out first time going and probably our last unless we just want to have appetiizers. the soup and crab mac and cheese were to die for!!!

    VegandCarn
    Dined on 2/23/2013
    Trilogy has long been a favorite destination for my husband and me when dining with another couple, but larger groups always seem easily accommodated, as well. As a vegan cookbook author + food blogger, I often find vegan entrees at local mainstream restaurants pretty uninspired unless we're eating Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Thai, and, sometimes Italian. So, I was thrilled to see a vegan veggie pot pie on the menu, but more delighted still to be offered an AMAZING stir fry. This flavor and color explosion boasted fabulous texture. A veritable cornucopia of veggies--onion, red bell pepper, asparagus, tomato, mushrooms, carrot, and spinach--was bound together with chewy rice by a vibrant and delectable ginger-soy sauce. Delish!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Was disappointed with reduced menu (not mentioned on their website or when booking), wanted lamb, got filet instead, wife's was overcooked, new steak was prepared quickly and was perfect. Then there was a mix up with the wine, ordered a Chilean Merlot, it was on the sweet side, ordered a 2nd glass, tasted nothing like the first. In hindsight, I'm relatively certain the first glass was an Argentinian Cabernet. Other than that, the service was exceptional, the food was fantastic. We LOVE this restaurant, the food and service is always great, we'll continue to dine here for special occassions.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a fine dining experience. The owner visited the table and he was extremely courteous and warm. My only disappointment was that I didn't find this restaurant until now after living in the area for so long. This is easily one of the top restaurants in Hampton roads.

    We've been here before and had a fabulous experience, but this time everything seemed to be awry. Perhaps because they were coming off an extended Restaurant Week (contrary to what most people think, that is the absolute WORST time to sample a restaurant because the staff is exhausted. That being said, our server Steve was just pompous and not friendly from the beginning. We continued to be patient and nice and he barely softened up. He made our experience bad. My fiance is really even keeled and never gets upset and was ready to walk out before we got our food delivered. In fact, he said he never wants to go back to Trilogy again.I'm sure I will just to the nature of my business, but that experience makes me not want to.
