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

The food is consistently well prepare. I do wish the menu choices where changed more frequently. The staff are attentive and remember your beverage choice from visit to visit.

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.

What a great find! Not only is the food outstanding, but the service is outstanding. We had Lindsey as our server and she was unbelievable. She was very knowledge about the menu, made EXCELLENT recommendations, and provided very attentive service. Our food was top notch. The mussels were some of the best we have ever had. We both selected different... More

While service was a little slower than usual at my most recent visit, it was always superb at previous ones. The problem was something in the kitchen, but our server kept us informed and didn't charge for dessert.

With its superlative hosting, fine food & wine and cozy atmosphere, you'll feel like you're a Star when you are here. From the French Onion Soup to the Crisp Duck and Brussels to the Garlic Mussels in White Wine, 99 Main has shortage of ways to impress. Additionally, parking is convenient an reserved for the restaurant. Try the Bar area... More
