Perfect for our anniversary dinner and the complimentary glasses of champagne were appreciated. The food as always was exquisite, unique, and beautifully plated. The service was perfect, just the right amount of attention without being obtrusive. The nice thing is, TJ's Bistro is always this way, so we can reliably have special guests from out of town get blown away, great drinks at the bar, or a romantic dinner without worry.

Our server was awesome . Restaurant was not super clean, windows really dirty. I ordered a house salad that tasted like straight vinegar was poured on it . We order Bison which was sub par. Also ordered a fish special and fish was dry and portion was small for price and sauce was cold. Wine was good and staff very friendly. Probably won’t go back .

Excellent food and service. A special occasion kind of place. Interesting combination of ingredients, most locally sourced. Excellent crab cakes and wonderful, very light calamari. Valet parking is available.

Poor ambience. Kids playing video at the next table at a loud volume. Terrible service. Waited 40 minutes for an appetizer. $12 for a cup of soup. Ridiculous.

Asked server about wines to glass as they serve limited. Her initial response gave the impression there were more options than listed. When we discussed, she seemed short. The curry chicken appetizer was too curry heavy. Our steaks were mixed up when set, and food was not hot it was lukewarm.

We purposely placed our cards with the bills apart as not to mix them up. She mixed them up and made a comment that suggested we mixed them up.

Easter brunch was abysmal. Lamb was undercooked. food choices very limited and presentation at serving stations was poor. Carving station had difficulty finding sharp cutlery which is a bit of a joke for a fine dining restaurant. Sorry to report that food was mediocre at best. Can't provide praise for anything other than the service which was very professional and met every expectation.

Good wine selection, nice menu. The scallops were done perfectly. A bit pricey but generally worth it. Could use some refurbishing. The seat of the booth we sat in was split in several places, and you don't expect that with this price point.

Unfortunately I have to leave a negative review of Todd Jurich’s. This restaurant has always been a favorite of ours when visiting Norfolk from our home in VA Beach. We had opera tickets for this particular evening and upon our suggestion and high recommendation we made reservations for 6 people. Upon our arrival we were told by our waitress that there was a party of 50 arriving soon ( we arrived at 5;30) but she would make sure she got our order in before theirs. We started with cocktails; they were good. We ordered our appetizers and main courses and waited. The shrimp appetizer was delicious. My beetroot salad was bland with too much dressing. 2 of us ordered the cherry duck, 3 ordered the flounder with crab and 1 ordered rockfish. The duck entrees were all cold, the meat was rubbery. It looked as though they had been pre-made and then re-heated. We sent the duck back for “Re-heating”. Our service for the evening was mediocre. We had to ask for water refills and a desert menu. I believe all this was due to the hug party of 50, also going to opera. It was unacceptable.

An outstanding dining experience!! One of the best that we have had in Norfolk. Service, food, spirits are exceptional. The bar noise is a little noisy. However, the table that we had made an ambiance of just a table for two.

Food was good but portion was to small for the price. We were hungry within an hour leaving, after having a 3 course meal.
When we arrived there was no one at door to great us and sit us. We had to flag someone down to have any direction on where to go or be seated. The smoke from the grill was all over the restaurant. I have trouble breathing in smoky atmospheres. I came with 3 other people on Valentine’s Day dressed well and we left smelling like smoke. Our table alone paid almost $600 including tips for an experience we did not enjoy.
The waitress was very kind and professional. She was our saving grace. Me and my wife frequently go to 4-5 star restaurants. I was hoping our experience would’ve been different and on a higher level for a 4 to 5 star resturant but it wasn’t. I will try again but no time soon

First of all it was Valentine's day and they had us sitting in a room big enough for only four tables. It felt like a closet. You couldn't even see the rest of the restaurant. Our waitress was very unprofessional. My wife asked for a particular type of wine and she just handed her the menu like look it up yourself. I've had better service at ihop. The food was very good. My wife had the duck and i had the crab cakes. The food was almost good enough to make up for the awful service while eating in the janitors closet.
