The Green Onion -- Norfolk

geg5150 | May 15, 2007 05:13 PM

I had the night alone tonight and thought I'd head down to Colley Avenue for dinner and a movie. I decided to try The Green Onion. It was a beautiful night tonight and the patio was full at 6 when I walked in. Inside was almost empty, only one table was occupied. I headed for the bar.

Nice wine, beer and martini menu and a full bar. I ordered an Argentinian Malbec rose and perused the menu. It's a small menu. Only 4 starters -- a cheese board with about 10-12 cheeses, mussles, cheese & crab dip and mushroom fries.

For salads, there were five or six from a mixed salad to roasted beets.

Only five entrees that I can recall -- beef tenderloin, salmon, scallops, ribeye and lamb. I thought it was interesting that there wasn't any chicken or veggie options. Ranged from $18 to $22. I ordered the scallops. Six seared scallops with a sweet chile glaze, coconut sticky rice and green beans with sesame seeds. It was ok. Didn't come up hot, which was a disappointment.

I wasn't wowed. But, I would give it another try. If I have the same experience, I won't be back.

When can we do a Norfolk meetup? Email me at if you're interested.
