Had heard of it, my boyfriend saw a Groupon for it. So we tried it. I do enjoy a quirky environment. I also appreciate farm to table dining. However, for the actual prices of this place to make sense...I would need for it to be in a better part of town, and I would need for it to have a... More

Meal: Some great things on the menu. The homemade bread is the best ever in Hampton Roads, bake to the perfection. I recommend the cheese plate as a starter; excellent aged Saint-Andre; so it is not as creamy as when young. I had the $42 aged NY strip, cooked rare as requested. The meat was not as tender as some... More

My husband and I visited this very eclectic restaurant in Port Norfolk again last night. From the moment you step into the hallway/bar, you realize what a gem this restaurant is. The bar is surrounded by mounted heads of various animals, which is not my thing, but is obviously Sidney Meers, owner/chef. The restaurant is very small, reservations highly recommended,... More

What's on the stove? Good food, that's what. I saw reviews in a magazine and decided to go there to try the food. I'm all about taste of course, but next on my list is portion size. Third is drinks. I got everything I wanted at Stove. Spent a good amount of time looking around and giggling at the eclectic... More

Wow! What a great hidden treasure. Wife had the smoked tenderloin and I had the shrimp and grits. Hard to decide which was better. Don't pass up this small intimate venue. It's one of the best restaurants around.

Have heard about this place for as long as I can remember so you can imagine how disappointing for me when the food was "nothing to write home about". For the life of me I can't figure out how this place has stayed around. Yes, it is eclectic . . . almost as if they were trying too hard to... More

My wife is a true "foodie" and has her own food blog and has her food on the Food Network show the Kitchen so when we heard about Stove from a shop owner in Smithfield when she bought a jar of sauce made by the owner we were excited. It sounds like her kind of place and she couldn't wait... More

My husband just flew back to the US after a year in Afghanistan. While staying at the Norfolk Naval Base, we ventured out to several towns nearby. We were told about Stove and made it a point to visit. After my dish (dumb waiter etouffe) being bland-- aside from the heat factor and a hair being in my food (that... More

This is a great place to go with friends because the decor gives you lots to talk about. Everything from the design of the place to the menu is the brainchild of the artist/chef/owner. Eclectic small plates give you the opportunity for lots of different tastes. I found one to be a bit bland, albeit very fresh. The risotto was... More
