My son took me to Omar's for dinner last night while visiting Hampton. What a place! The perfect trifecta of atmosphere,incredibly delicious food, and wonderful service. The building is quaint and eclectic while the menu offerings are unique and delicious with interesting and beautiful presentations. Top that off with a super attentive (yet not intrusive) wait staff and you get... More

A wonderful find of a restaurant in Norfolk. Great food, and service. Easy to walk to if you are in downtown.

My wife and I went there for dinner last week and came away thoroughly impressed! The new menu and wine list are simply outstanding. I had the mussels which were presented in a creamy broth that just stole the show. My wife had one of the fish dishes which blew her away. I cannot say enough about Omar and his... More

Food is excellent, especially their crab cakes. Best I have ever had. Service compliments the food. Introduced us to great martinis too!

Four of us went to dinner after a pleasant day with our new granddaughter. We arrived at 5:30 and were seated. The waitress was not helpful with recommendations. I and another member of our group ordered the New York Strip. It came out lukewarm and with no flavor. We asked if it was a New York Strip and were told... More

We visited the Carriage House for the first time recently. It is a small restaurant with 10 tables and a bar. The interior is quite elegant and charming, with beautiful pictures and place settings. One issue, however is that the lights frequently flicker which quickly became annoying. The wait staff are outstanding, knowledgeable and attentive, but not intrusive. There is... More

My wife and I selected Omar's for a quiet, upscale dinner and we weren't disappointed. It's a small restaurant in an old carriage house in the historic Freemason section of Norfolk. I recommend reservations to ensure you get a table. It has both upstairs and downstairs dinning rooms and both are nicely decorated. Has a cozy, old-world feel with works... More

Love it all, from the quirky mismatched place settings to the knowledgeable staff. Oh and let's not forget about the food and drink, two thumbs up! Put it on your list of places to visit.
