My fiancé and I ate here on our 3 past trips to VA beach and absolutely loved it, so when we went back this year we knew we had to eat there. Sadly, they have combined Pi with two other restaurants and this had dropped the quality if food and service. When we arrived, we saw that there was a little bit of a line so I approached the hostess to find out about the wait. She advised me to go next door to their other restaurant because it's the same menu and they would seat us faster. Since we didn't understand that they had combined restaurants, we kind of just hung back and tried to figure out what we would do for dinner now. We then watched the hostess take 2 groups of people and seat them immediately on the patio. I approached the hostess again, and asked how long the wait would be. She told me she would go inside and check. When she came back out, she told me it would be a few minutes, and we said we'd wait. Then, the hostess asked the couple behind us if they would like to sit outside or inside (an option we didn't get), and she sat them immediately on the patio. After this, I realized that there weren't any black people on the patio, and my fiancé is black, so sadly, it's my only assumption that the hostess didn't want any black people or an interracial couple eating on their patio. Once we were finally seated inside, we found it loud, crowded with little space between the tables, and the menu was completely different. The sandwich my fiancé loved so much from Pi was now only offered for lunch, and much of the food seemed overpriced. I had minestrone soup which was listed as vegetable soup on the menu, but came full of noodles- which I don't eat. The changes they have made to Pi aren't good ones, and your money is better spent elsewhere.
