Highly recommend Todd jurichs bistro. Friendly staff, manager came to our table to make sure we were satisfied. None of that matters if the food doesnt measure up; it does. My wife had the crispy duck. perfect. moist where it was supposed to be and crispy where it should. I had the ribeye. One of the best ive had, and im a steak guy, few places do it better than i do it myself.

First time trying this place out and I must say I was very impressed. The food was very well prepared and had a nice presentation. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. The only negative thing I could say was that the portions were entirely too small, especially considering the price point of the entrees. I still give this restaurant a 5 star rating.

Nice spot for dinner. Very good service, but unfortunately the food quality has dropped off. Robuchon potatoes were very stiff, but tasty. Oysters had bits of shell throughout. It hurts to say this, but accurate reviews help fellow diners make choices.

We had a fantastic experience and would go back. The owner took the time to suggest wine to us and had story to go with. Our waitress was extremely friendly and patient. The food was delicious and fresh tasting.

This was our first time out to eat since the pandemic. We felt very comfortable with the people we encountered. Our server, Gigi, was lovely and did a great job. We had the pumpkin crab soup, which was exceptional. Our entrees were only lukewarm when they arrived, and sadly, they were not anything to write home about. Okay, but not great. We had the flourless chocolate torte for dessert which was very nice. Had hoped to have a better experience.

My girlfriend and I have been there before and were very happy. This time we were seated in a tiny booth near the door and the bar. Between reception and the noisy bar we could barely hear each other speak. The table legs took up much too much of the leg space and it was uncomfortable. It was bad enough we didn't even order entrees; just ate appetizers and drank a couple glasses of wine. Given my prior excellent experience, it was a very disappointing night. Usually, I would have said something or asked for another table, but didn't for personal reasons. I doubt that I will be returning.

Very much enjoyed the Friday evening “Date Night” at Todd’s...although there were more diners than we had expected because of Covid—and a very lively bar scene. The Manager and Staff were doing their best to enforce social-distancing.

This was our first time dining here, and we absolutely loved it! The hostess greeted us right away. I had requested a booth or a table off to the side, so that was very nice of her to accommodate our request. Our server was phenomenal; she was so funny and sweet! I wish I could remember her name so when we return we could request her as our server (Jackie, perhaps?). The food runners were very kind and professional as well; they remembered our seat numbers so they knew who ordered what dish and took the time to present the food. The various dishes we tried were exceptional and the plating was very eye pleasing... Definitely took into appreciation before digging in. Well done to the entire staff! Looking forward to joining you again!

I would rather not have been limited to a fixed price meal plan and if I had known that was the only option I would have waited until another night such as when they do surf and turf or prime rib. Nevertheless, the excellent quality with the freshest of ingredients, made the meal sublime. My son also commented on the fact that the Cesar salad was the best he had ever had and none of it was "brown"! Our waitress or server or whatever they are these days, was exceptional. Bistro is hands down one of the top fine dining in the Tidewater area.

Food was very good, but server was slow to tend to the table so the very gracious GM did so. Also, we were seated in an adjoining meeting room with a view of the kitchen which had zero ambience. It had been suggested to me by the person that had recommended we try it (for the first time) to request a booth, which I did, and it wasn't honored. Overall, disappointing first time.

We were celebrating Christmas with close friends. Bought tickets to Winterfest which was across the street. Decided to eat at Jurichs Bistro for convenience. Hadnt been there in a while. We were given a private room as 8 people attended and Karen knew Carlos the gentlemen confirming reservations. We enjoyed our privacy. I ordered the special which was Surf and Turf. My filet was chewy so they brought me another. The 2nd one was chewy, also. I just chewed and disposed of the part I couldnt chew on a separate plate. 2 Others ordered the same but didnt have a problem with the petite Filet. You should be able to cut through the filet like butter. Or at least chew it. Both of my filets were chewy. I wont order that again. Disappointed in my meal. I enjoyed the ambiance and company. Wish my steak had been up to par.

Todd's is one of the best restaurants in downtown Norfolk. We ate in the bar area which is always very lively but if you eat in the dining room, each table is very private. Food & service was amazing & Rob is the best bartender in Norfolk!

Todd continues to a great job under very difficult circumstances. We were delighted to be able to go out to one of our favorite restaurants even under the challenging times. The menu here (and elsewhere) has been constrained, but the overall attitude and ambience remains the same high standard.

Passed by multiple times on Boush, decided to give it a try after we decided we didn’t want to cook dinner. Got a reservation for outdoor seating. I think there might be a miscommunication between this app and restaurants because when I arrived the hostess asked if I wanted a high top or booth which both sounded nice but I said I requested outdoor. To be fair this isn’t the first time I have booked outdoor seating and a miscommunication between the restaurant and this app has happened, one restaurant wasn’t aware open table even offered that option. So I always try to call ahead to make sure but nonetheless we got a nice table on the outdoor patio overlooking the USS Wisconsin ship as the sun went down and the lights aboard the ship gave a pretty view.

Food was excellent, service was excellent. Great specials mixed with a a great regular menu. We both ended up trying the lamb special and I regret nothing by replacing my mashed potatoes with French fries! Spectacular!

The only thing I will say is we were caught off guard by the patio allowing people to smoke. Not a huge deal, just wasn’t expecting it. The wind was active that night so unfortunately smoke was blowing in our direction. Not all the restaurants fault just got unlucky with the wind.

All in all can’t wait to come back, the French onion soup is calling my name since soup season is about to begin!!

The Restaurant is facing the ramification of COVID with only 4 diners and 2 bar patrons all evening. The slowness conveyed a tired environ coupled with a tired menu.

Recently dined outside at Todd Jurich’s to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience. The service was excellent. My friend has some specific food allergies, and they were very understanding and accommodating, making sure she got just what she wanted. The food was delicious; I had the duck, she had the tuna, and we shared a beet salad. We ate every last thing on our plates. Too bad we forgot to leave room for dessert. Highly recommended!

COVID 19 has had an impact. Dinner took 2 hours/15 minutes, and it certainly wasn't crowded; I'd guess that they are short staffed. Food was good, as always, but could have been served warmer, and they were out of several items (we arrived at 6:15PM). Overall, not as impressive as in past visits, but given the current circumstances, understandable.
