Wonderful, intimate restaurant

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... read 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.

Amazing hospitality and top of the line when it comes to service. The food was fabulous and the plate presentations were to be in a magazine. Our server, James, was great. She... More

We went to Terrapin at the end of February for our anniversary and it truly was splendid. The attention to detail was surprising, the wines were great, and I never wanted it to end. We ordered the wine pairing with 4 courses, and each wine paired fantastically to our dish. The seafood was so fresh, and you must get the... More

Yes, I was impressed with the menu and the service. They had some local fish items which I wanted to try and found enjoyable. The food is a little pricey but this is an upscale place so nothing was out of line. I actually ate by myself and sat at the bar. They had a special price for "bundle" which... More

We live in Virginia Beach and have gone to almost all of the higher end restaurants the area has to offer and this is by far the best food and service in Virginia Beach.

Terrapin is a very special place for that great evening you want to have with someone you love. We enjoyed their fixed price multi course dinner with a wine selection for each course. You can select anything from the menu. You just get smaller portions. In most restaurants, you can get a glass or two of wine or a bottle.... More

We had our best 5 course dinner for our anniversary on the new porch at Terrapins. The restaurant is now very easy to find thanks to the new road lay out. Which means it is even harder than before to find a table without a reservation. The outside dinning option is perfect for spear of the moment decision and no... More
