Monastery Restaurant

Wall sconces cast warm light across the exposed brick walls at Monastery Restaurant, where guests dine on European cuisine at small, candle-lit tables. Owners Anna and Adolf Jerabek first opened a restaurant in New York City after leaving their native Czechoslovakia in 1967, and later journeyed to Virginia to open their Old World eatery at the current downtown Norfolk locale. There, they serve breaded port cutlet with Lyonnaise potatoes and steamed broccoli, and veal-stuffed cabbage with dumplings. A painting of a portly monk with a half-finished beer hangs behind the bar, where visitors can enjoy selections from the drink list—wine, beer, champagne, and cocktails—or jump up on the wall to act like the portly monk.


the whole time, we felt as if we were at a friend's house eating. the owners were very nice and welcoming as were the rest of the staff.

  • “You have to purchase two entrees. They have outstanding food, but the portions are large, so we'd hoped to split an entree. It was okay, we love this restaurant!”

  • “A delightful meal with excellent service”

  • “Not very filling portions. Make sure to order appetizer. ”
