...My wife said it would have been a perfect meal. We've passed 99 several times, but never when they were open. So, we finally made an effort to go. It's located in the historic Hilton Village district off Warwick, and is well worth the trip. We were welcomed into the cozy, relaxed atmosphere by the very friendly staff. The subsequent... More

Over the years I have had wonderful meals at 99 Main. Then I ordered a steak with burgandy sauce. It came, completely covered with a dark sauce, which was alright, till I cut into it and put a bite of fat and gristle in my mouth. I discreetly returned it to the plate and tried again, with the same results.... More

While exploring Tidewater Virginia, we were looking for a place for dinner. We again looked to Tripadvisor and discovered this well review restaurant. We shared a unique Bok Choy salad which was delicious. Looking for a fish dish, I took our waiter, Jason, suggestion of the Blackened Snapper with Oyster Gumbo Special. It was delicious with a nice spicy kick.... More

Went here, spur of the moment, late one night for a date with my husband. We were blown away by the fishes of the day and the service. Our waitress was adorable, attentive and very informative about the food. The food was scrumptious - it was one of those meals where you really didn't want it to end and even... More

We visited this small restaurant on one of the rare occasions when we find ourselves in Newport News. Since we were very early for dinner, we were one of the few occupied tables. The staff were friendly and the food was unique, carefully prepared, and the menu had nice, unusual items on it. We had a lovely evening.

Wonderful restaurant! This is one of our standard date night spots. Not to say it is not kid friendly, but we retain certain things for the original "us". Diners can choose to eat outside, in the formal dinning area or in a more bistro/bar area. The food is outstanding the the menu rotates with the seasons (a sign of a... More

After a very long drive and only having one night in Newport News, we planned to dine at 99 Main. It exceeded our expectations! The meal, service and atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing. At our table, we enjoyed the salmon special, the scallops, beef tenderloin and mussels - our 7 year old had the mussel appetizer as his meal. The... More

I've eaten dinner here a few times and always been impressed, especially since this is Newport News and the food quality at 99 Main is on par with most fine-dining experiences you could have in a big city like London.
