Just got back from 4 days of eating in Quebec City-- Terrapin has them all beat--their four course tasting menu for $52 is an outstanding value and treat for the senses - you get to pick one item from each course which has 5-6 choices each- Wonderful and their wine pairing is only $28 -- amazing value-- wish we had...

visited on a Sunday evening for my birthday dinner. We sat outside on the patio which was gorgeous that evening. James our server was spot on with the freedom our party gave him to select wines for us as well the direction we took with menu selections. My favorite item that a few of us enjoyed was the risotto which... More

My wife and I went here for her birthday. Everything about the experience was perfect! Loved their iPad wine and cocktail list. We just saved 2 selections and handed it to our waiter. For apps we had the risotto and beet salad. Both were amazing. Loved the pickled radishes in the beet salad. For entrees - scallops and soft shell... More

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile and finally did this past Sunday. We arrived at 5pm when they opened, so we were pretty much alone for awhile. The service was great and the food delicious. We both tried the tasting menu, mine without wine pairing and my husband's with the wine pairing. He enjoy the wine... More

Tucked away in a little shopping center a few blocks from the tourist strip, this restaurant was a nice surprise. The chef chooses local ingredients and the menu changes constantly. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food and we tasted each other's choices. Get the sampler.

In my eager and extensive search for soft shell crab perfection I think we found it at Terrapin in Virginia Beach! Everything on the menu is delectable and making choices is tough but rewarding! Started with tasty and plump Lynnhaven oysters with perhaps a more fruity and thicker mignonette than I am accustomed to - requested lemon wedges to diversify... More

You really can't beat a night on the patio in the mud 70's. The food is wonderful taking big advantage of local fruits, vegetables and proteins. For 2 couples, we started off with the full cheese board. Also shared a few appetizers for second course - the egg and soup du jour. Everyone opted for soft shell crabs as main... More

My hubby took me here for our two year anniversary. Right away, we were treated special. They even had menus with our names and "Happy 2nd Anniversary" written on top. This was a nice touch. We were seated in a cozy corner so we could talk and enjoy a nice meal. Our server, Nick, was amazing! He knew just how... More

The best service we have had in awhile. It my wife's birthday and we were treated like gold. On top of that, the 4 course meal and wine pairing was incredible.
