Wonderful ambience and European flair. Valet parking across the street. Highy recommend this fabulous restaurant for a date night. The extra touches like the cheese and bread pre meal and added dumplings onto your entree can't be beat. Will retur

Great variety of primarily Eastern European dishes. Service was excellent. We even had a Czech waitress. expect lower price dishes with regular portion sizes (Brat Wurst has one Braut, etc.) but higher priced dishes more than regular portion size (Roasted Duck comes as a half a roasted duck). The duck was done very well with crispy skin and low fat content. Tried a small piece of the Pork Special and it had a high salt content. Its more of a sit down place, table cloths, monastery ambience, although a bit too much stuff on table. I would go back to try other dishes, then make a fuller assessment. Can't imagine how the eastern style mushy sauerkraut would carry, which comes with almost every dish, so I would say no to take out. I would give it a thumbs up for a small town (Norfolk) eatery as I am partial to San Francisco, Boston, New York, Chicago, London, Paris, Munich, Rome (bigger city) dining fare.

I looked at the food descriptions on their website before we went, but our server was very helpful explaining the dishes to us. The owner came out to greet us and made us feel very welcome! This is the perfect place for a date night.

From Our Editors

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.
