Green Onion is one of my favorite casual restaurants with upscale New American/Country French cuisine. Lunch features unique turns on salads, soups and sandwiches. Their spinach salad with scallops is excellent and their frites with sandwiches are magnifique! Dinner includes great mussels, scallops, oyster and fried green tomato apps and the seafood and meat entrees vary from scallops, salmon and... More

Looked good from the outside - they offer outside dining and Colley is a great street in downtown Norfolk to enjoy...inside is nicely decorated...BUT, the food left something to be desired for the price you are paying...It was just AVERAGE. Dined there for brunch and thought the food I ordered was OK but I could have gotten it at IHOP... More

Its not the prettiest restaurant you will go to, but don't let that deter you. The food is crazy good. We shared meals, we had the tomato bisque, rich, creamy fresh, we fought over their delicious croutons, which, by the way, if you order this ask for extra croutons. The muscles were delicious, the broth was worth drinking up or... More

Good menu selection with a lot of local flair. Excellent service and fresh variety of dishes. Comfortable, casual dining set-up. Great space to meet up with friends. On a hot day, settle down with a pitcher of Pomegranate Sangria. Seafood chowder is an excellent starter (to share) or well enjoyed on its own. The Lobster Roll is worth ordering, a... More

Just tried this place and it was AWESOME!!! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was nice! A little too much dressing on my salad, but other than that no complaints!

The Ghent neighborhood in Norfolk, VA has lots of nice restaurants but this is one of my favorites. Try the lobster roll (available on their lunch menu) & sit outside & enjoy the day.

Green Onion is one of our favorite restaurants in Norfolk's Ghent area. The service is great, food is amazing. If you like mussels, you must try to go on Wednesdays. It's all you can eat mussels, fries, bread, and one glass of wine for a flat price. Enjoy!

This is among my favorite restaurants in all of Hampton Roads (Coastal Virginia, Tidewater, etc.) Food and service are always excellent. It is a "go to" place when we have guest from out of town. They also have frequent "Wine Tasting Meals" where by reservation you have a multi course meal matched to the wines being presented.
