We stopped in at 101 Granby St. on a Sunday afternoon and the sign read Norfolk Taproom, not sure when the named changed. The place was full and busy at 3:30 pm but we found a spot for lunch at the end of the bar. Good beers delivered quickly. The crowd provided the noise due to the conversations but it... More

They have 24 local beers on tap and give you samples of what you think you might like. Both managers were there and were helpful in picking the right beer. Casual atmosphere at night so it was a good experience

In November, 2013, I, and others, were offered early retirement, effective 11/30. My coworkers scrambled to find a venue for my retirement party, and I suggested Trilogy because it is in downtown Norfolk, where most of the guests work, and the party was going to be set on a Thursday at 5:30. I had attended a retirement party at Trilogy... More

This little place was a question to all of my coworkers. Signage is minimal and that makes the questions start flowing when you see something food related pop up in a historic bank. "What is it...a bar, a restaurant, a private club?!" Until we looked it up. Yum, but costly. My fiancé and I visited for an after-show dinner date.... More

An old bank turned into a very nicely decorated restaurant. We went to Trilogy during Norfolk's Restaurant week, so it was unusually crowded. The food was good. They charged extra for bread which I thought was ridiculous. I specifically asked if the bread was home made which I was told "yes". But the bread was pre-made dough from a freezer... More

We tried Trilogy for the first time during Norfolk's downtown restaurant week (July 2013) and liked it so much we stopped in again the following week. Service was not just efficient, it was friendly and the front of house staff from the hostess right on through the bartenders and table staff appear genuinely invested in you enjoying your experience. The... More

The atmosphere and food at Trilogy is very nice. The service is average at best. I had to ask for a drink refill several times throughout my visit. The restaurant was not very busy but the hostess acted like my request for a table other than the original one she took me to was a problem for her. The crabcake... More

We went to Trilogy during Norfolk's Restaurant week, so it was unusually crowded, the food and the service were top notch even with a full house. The Shrimp and grits were some of the I've ever tasted. Definitely not a health nut meal but true to their southern roots with a "red eye" gravy that made you think of grandma's... More

Trilogy is located inside an old bank. The bar is located where the tellers once were. Because the building is an historic landmark, the restaurant wasn't allowed to alter the interior. Look for the Chihuly light fixture at the back of the restaurant when you enter. The menu mainly consists of tapas, but there are several seafood and red meat... More

My wife and I went for dinner on Saturday and we were floored that we had never been there before. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. In particular, the shrimp & grits and the crab cake were excellent. We will most definitely be going back.
