This was one of my favorite things about my vacation in Virginia Beach this year. We went to Terrapin based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The meal was outstanding, each person in our party ordered the four course meal. Although a bit pricey, the dinner was incredible, and well worth it! One of the courses was oyster... More

For the second time, my wife and I dined at this fine restaurant after spending an afternoon wine tasting at an event in Virginia Beach. The food and service was excellent, as in the first time we ate here. We started the evening with specialty cocktails and ordered a half bottle of Pinot Noir to drink with our entree. My... More

The first time we went to Terrapin, it was a very enjoyable experience. They had mainly a french themed menu. The second time the service was extremely extremely slow and the waiter got our order wrong which meant that we had to wait a little bit more. It's a hit or miss situation. Their wine list though is decent.

The food was very good. Heather (Rachel :) ) headed up the wait-staff team and they were all exceptional. The food is well presented and of high quality. We attended with a group of six in celebration of a birthday. Upon arrival, the birthday girl received her own 'personalized menu' - nice touch! Each of the four courses were well... More

We visited the restaurant based on the reviews and were extremely happy with the experience. The wait staff was friendly and professional. We chose the four course tasting menu and each course was expertly prepared. The gourmet experience did come with a gourmet price tag so be prepared.

While this is not a cheap restaurant it is an excellent one. My husband and i both did the tasting menu so together we had the beet salad, local oysters, soft shell crab, truffle mac and cheese (to die for!) scallops, ice cream sampler and peach and blueberry cobbler. Most everything was outstanding. The softshell crab were a bit saltly... More

What a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Make sure you tell them when you make your reservation so you get a special message on your menu. Both of our 3 course meals and recommended wine pairing were phenomenal. My wife enjoyed the beet salad while I also liked my spring salad. For the second course we both went... More

Definitely not a family style place but our waiter took great care of my family four with 2 little ones. They don't have a kids meal or much to offer besides Mac and cheese, but we didn't expect they would. The baratta and peaches was the favorite of the night and the kids loved the softshell crab entree. Desserts were... More

Terrapin is our New York restaurant experience when traveling to NYC is not possible. First class service, very creative menu selections expertly prepared, excellent wine list, and no expensive hotel!
