My husband and I dined at Terrapin on a recent stay in Virginia Beach. We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant gave us personalized menus, wishing us a happy anniversary - a very nice touch. The menu is fabulous. We wanted to try everything! We liked that the wine menu was on an iPad. It allowed you to browse... More

On vacation last week (July 12), visiting Virginia Beach area, searched for a quality restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Terrapin made the evening very special and memorable, in a most positive way. My wife and I were so pleased with the service (Chris), the Zinfandel (Terra D'Oro) that complemented our main course, not to mention the wonderful chocolate cake... More

My husband and I went for our 3 year anniversary. It was pretty spur of the moment and we were thrilled to find excellent service and excellent food. The truffle mac and cheese was amazing and the scallops were fantastic, but the real winner was the mojitos. It is expensive, but worth it for a special meal. We will go... More

This was a nice break from the beach chaos. Definitely a lovely dinner date kind of a place to get dressed up for. We had the 4 course meal which allowed us to try a lot. In particular, the beet salad, risotto, truffle Mac and cheese, and duck breast were excellent. Parking is easy as well.

Everything is good. One of those restaurants that you can't go wrong with. I highly recommend the wed. night special also... More

Terrapin Restaurant is a wonderful fine dining restaurant at the beach. The food is exceptional and the menu features fresh seafood. The restaurant has cozy ambiance, and the service is consistently good. Terrapin has a tasting menu with wine pairing that is a delight. We love Terrapin's soft shell crabs, grilled fish, truffle macaroni and cheese, and special desserts. Terrapin... More

We visited Terrapin for my birthday. Every server passed by individually to wish me a happy birthday. My menu was specially printed with my name and the same salutation. After our dinner our server gave me the menu. This is the second time I've been to Terrapin and have been equally impressed with the food and service. I don't realize... More

Food and service were perfect. But $18 for one Grey Goose martini, plus another $2 for blue cheese olives felt like being gouged. Dinner for 2 was over $150 so take your big wallet. Friends picked the restaurant, not sure we will go back.

We both got the Prix Fixx meal 3 course for $33. I got 2 specialty cocktails, $13 and $12. When my scallop entree arrived there were 2 scallops. Lot of truffles and other yummy stuff but I cut each scallop into 6 pieces. $24 for two scallops? The manager came to inquire about our meals. I said delicious but I... More
