This restaurant is rated one of the best in the City and deservingly so. Food is so creatively plated and the taste and textures are we presented. The bouillaise was the best I have ever tasted. The wait staff is quick and quiet. The outdoor...More

We walked here from our hotel for dinner. It's a nice place, but the food is not transcendent for the relatively high price. In future trips to Virginia Beach, I will give it a pass.

We went here on a double date for our anniversary and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend the tasting menu which is 4 courses, but be warned that the courses are full size so come hungry. There was a course or...More

Terrapin has definitely earned every one of its 4 Diamonds from AAA. The menu is farm and sea to table. The staff is impeccable and the food is the best I've ever had in Virginia Beach. Chef Rodney us a modest man, but his food...More

Quite the swanky joint! Hard to find so use GPS. The best calamari I have EVER eaten and I’ve been around 70 years. Rest of the food we enjoyed was equally as delightful. A bit pricey for VA Beach but don’t let that stop you...More

This restaurant is a real gem. The host was extremely friendly and even checked in with me multiple times to make sure everything was good. Bartender was very friendly and the restaurant boasted an impressive wine list. Had risotto and tilefish for my entree. Both...More

Tucked off the main beach road in an unassuming small center, it was a nice find. It was fried chicken night and it did not disappoint, my companion did the tasting menu with the sommelier wine tasting and was pleased. Our server Edouard was knowledgable...More

I’m not a local, but learned via Trip Advisor that Terrapin is a local favorite. And the locals are right. My husband and daughters all really loved this place. They have a tasting menu, small sized items you can do as appetizers or sides or...More

Yeah; I'd stick with that and nice shoes. You won't need a jacket-but, if you did have one you wouldn't feel overdressed if you decided to wear it. It's a first class place and yet not pretentious at all.
