a bit of a disappointment:
went to odd urichs on 1/21/12. ambiance was fine. darkish. quiet. only about 4 tables taken already when we arrived at 6pm. i got foie gras...seared. with a corn cake and sweet and sour cherry sauce. sauce was great. cake was better than i expected...foie gras was seared properly and tasted lovely and rich...hoever....they did NOT clean it properly!! oh wow!! veins were in my piece. a no no....
my main course was a pasta dish with mushrooms, truffles and poultry. but the sauce was waay too heavy. mushroom were tiny bits. and i saw no truffles...and wonder if they used truffle oil vs. a real truffle. it was so rich in fact i did not finish it...left some pasta behind.

i did order a cheese plate for desert. it should ahve been a local goat cheese, smoked gouda and farmers cheddar.
however...they were out of the goat cheese. and replaced it with blue cheese. a bit of a disappointment though blue and roquefort are my favorite cheeses. they apologozed to me...and did not charge for the plate.

husband had a pumkin and crab soup...good. quite good. though i dont care for pumkin.
a ceasar salad..which was quite good. tho oddly also adorned with a few fresh blueberries. and a parmesan tweel made well. lol...husband didn't know what it was. had me try it. duh! parmesan tweel. once i told him...he nodded in agreement.
a steak dish...which i didn't try. and a lava/molten cake with a vanilla sauce...and another sauce, i forget what. it was so good to him i only got a scraping of the bowl. lol.
but the chocolate was rich and dark. not overtly sweet. the chocolate had to be the flavor was superb.

we had a bottle of wine. pinot grigio....very good. esp. after it was opened and rested.

Good, not amazing:
Though the atmosphere and wait staff are spot on, I have found the food to be a little monotonous on my two trips here. Oyster stew is stellar. Haven't been overwhelmed by any of entrees yet, but I'd still go back.

Appitizers were good. My husband ordered salmon med- well. Waitress served it and never came back to see if it was ok. It was rare & he didn't eat it. About 10 minutes later she came back. He told her it was rare, she didn't say sorry but offered to get something different. He said no thank you & she took the plate away. He asked her what it cost. She had to check & came back & said $24 w/ no offer to remove the charge. My husband said that he didn't think he should have to pay for it since it was not cooked right & he didn't eat it. She had to check with her manager. She returned with the check and didn't say a word. The charge was removed. Her mood went from friendly to cold. We spoke to the manager on the way out. Mentioned what happened & that customer service and attitude of waitress were not good. We received a cool & indifferent reaction. She didn't get it, not our problem. For our money, there are far better places in Norfolk with better service, food & attitude!

We were disappointed after our visit on 2/15/07. I made reservations, but our name wasn’t on the list. The hostess, however, did find a booth within a few minutes. Our waitress didn’t tell us until we were ready to order that they’d run out of salmon, flounder, and crabcakes (3 out of 5 seafood entrees). So, back to the menus we went. I chose the tuna, which was okay. The wasabi-flavored mashed potatoes and soup were not very tasty, and my soup got cold while I waited to get a spoon. While my husband enjoyed his veal chop, it wasn’t worth the $61.95 that the check originally listed the price as (this was a mistake from Valentine’s Day fixed prices, but how many people didn’t check twice??). We realized we were never offered water, but the bar drinks were good. I’m hoping this was just a bad night for them. It wasn't worth the $92 we spent.

Todd Jurich's Bistro Restaurant Review:
The bistro's ever-changing menu of fresh, seasonal fare (such as the shad roe “bacon and eggs”) is enlivened by chef Todd Jurich's fascination with Mediterranean, Mexican and Asian cuisines. Crab is a highlight, served a number of ways: in soups, crab cakes and in a jumbo lump crab-stuffed flounder, to name a few. Other favorites include rye-roasted foie gras; seared day boat scallops with...
