The Monastery offers authentic continental cuisine in a romantic, dimly-lit setting. – The Scene:
On Granby Street's restaurant row, the Monastery offers a quiet haven from the nearby highly-charged singles scene and trendy eateries. The owners of the Monastery Restaurant brought their love of regional cuisine with them to downtown Norfolk, and the dark interior, small windows, and candlelit interior give the restaurant a cloistered atmosphere even at lunch, making any gathering feel intimate. The restaurant has not lost its European charm with the passage of time and still serves specialties like wiener shnitzel, crispy duck, and strudel. Roast goose is a seasonal special. The lunch menu contains scaled-down versions of dinner items. Staff used to wear friar's-robe uniforms until a candle ignited a robe one evening; servers now wear civilian clothing.
If you order one thing:
Don't miss the duck or the roast goose in season.
We love it!! – My husband and I have eaten at the Monastery on a number of special occasions, and have found the food and service uniformly excellent. Since my husband is European, he verifies the authentic quality of the food. The wine list is good. (try the Bull's Blood!)
We will continue to eat at the Monastery. Although a bit pricey, it is well worth it!
