Best lower peninsula bistro

Excellent menu,upscale vibe, nice patio, good drinks. Creative food well presented but not too stuffy. You can spend a little or a lot. This type of restaurant is so rare here where we have way too many chain eateries!

We stumbled upon this place after leaving the Hampton Jazz Festival. And it was a good stumble. The chicken teriyaki wrap was really good. Erin was a great waitress. I even bought the salt scrub they have in the bathroom. It smelled great and I didn't need lotion after wards. The place is very clean, great ambiance. The manager was... More

This Bistro was excellent! It was located right next to the Hampton Inn, which made it convenient. The atmosphere is nice and they had a great selection on the menu.

The good and service are great but the prices are high for a casual lunch or dinner. Very comfortable atmosphere. I recommend this place but make sure you are prepared to pay.

This has become my go to place for good food, great wine and good service. The wait staff is attentive and the food is always presented with flair. They have an extensive wine list and it is really a nice play to sit back and enjoy!

Went there on a weekday evening. The place was reasonably crowded. very good ambiance. Ordered the scallops - very well prepared. Our server at the Newport News location was Lindsey - extremely cheerful and attentive. Thanks for the excellent service.

We found Second St. through Trip Advisor. It was easy to drive to in Newport News. We are a family of four (kids are pre-teen/teen). We asked to sit on the patio. It was beautifully decorated and had outdoor entertainment that wasn't too loud. Our server was Heather. She was a wealth of knowledge. Her help with our dinner selections... More

I've driven past this restaurant several times and finally went in today because another restaurant had an extremely long wait. We were seated immediately, the decor and atmosphere is perfect. To start I had a Bellini followed by a Mimosa, the Bellini was better. Food included the Shrimp & Grits, Crab Benedict and French Toast to share. Huge lumps of... More

My wife and I have eaten at Second Street Bistro in Newport News at least two dozen times now. The restaurant is very sleek and modern, welcoming and always clean. Many menu items change seasonally and they seem to pride themselves on going the extra mile to prepare homemade selections (such as the herb mix added to dipping olive oil,... More
