    Interesting menu. Food preparation very good. Service very good to excellent. Very noisy at dinner. Great spot for dinner before an event at Chrysler Hall because it's an easy walk and you can leave your car in the valet parking lot until after the show.

    We came for a date night after recommendation from a friend. The food was excellent! Crab cakes, fish, and a beef special offered that night were so good! The chocolate lava cake dessert was very nice. Great wine menu as well. Staff were friendly, and spot on with the great service. Thought the restaurant was pretty, romantic, and lively. Enjoyed the experience very much and eager to come back again.

    We eat there perhaps once to twice a month. A couple of years ago, the performance in the kitchen was spotty, but over the 1-1.5 years, we have enjoyed great service and outstanding food. The wild boar last Saturday sold out by 2000, and it was delicious - paired with a great Petit Sirah off the wine list.

    A terrific place to eat seafood!! We loved our waitress and the outstanding service she provided us. Although the seafood was very good, it still did not hit the levels of perfection that I am looking for in the gastronomical sense.

    We took my Mom to dinner for her 72nd birthday and she want's to come back again next year! Thy had taken the crabtini off the menu since the last time we were there but they were able to make something similar for us since we had our heart set on it. The service was wonderful and all of the food was lovely. We'll be back again for sure next year with Mom but hopefully before then!!

    I went here for a dinner business meeting. The meal was satisfying for everyone and not too over the top. The service was wonderful and everything was cooked perfectly. I wish the menu had a few more "new techniques" in food style, but overall everything was very yummy.

    The restaurant name suggests something modern, maybe bistro style. In fact its an old converted pool hall and quite traditional. Nice enough for that though and the meal was enjoyable. Service was pleasant and helpful and the bill not too steep.

    We had been there for drinks in the past and the martini's were very good as they were again. It was on the restaurant week list, perfect opportunity to check it out. We started with calamari and she crab soup, both were excellent! Loved the hot rolls! My wife had the salmon and it was very good. It came with spinach and mashed potatoes, very nice dish! I had the potato encrusted crab cakes. I had never had them that way before. I really liked them, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside, quite tasty! For desert, creme brulee and canoli, both were good. The service was very good. It got a little noisy in there after a while, but it was a very good dining experience, I highly recommend!

    Uneven experience at 456 on a recent Saturday night. First, the restaurant was freezing. There was a little girl at an adjacent table crying because she was so cold. They had actually wrapped cloth napkins around her to try and get warm! The gentleman at the table next to us joked he had asked for sweatpants and a sweatshirt. When we asked to move to another table not in the arctic air blast, it was significantly more comfortable. Food was great for two in our party, but my daughter's "medium" filet was barely cooked-not even to the medium rare level. Server was very apologetic. Manager did not appear to care and seemed uncomfortable even interacting with customers. Waitress was wonderful throughout; manager not so much.

    Our waitress was very detailed when she reviewed the menu with us. The restaurant itself is pretty awesome. The valet parking is a big plus. Unfortunately, it took us awhile to get our food. We were told that the kitchen was slammed. It was a Saturday evening. I'd definitely dine here again but perhaps during a slower time.

    Very disappointed in our experience. We left a note on the OpenTable reservation about a high chair & seating near the waterfall. Placed directly next to the door and stood at table for 5 minutes waiting hostess to bring high chair. 456 was mostly empty & the next group was places near waterfall when they walked in w/o reservation. Children's popcorn shrimp had TAILS on over half the shrimp. Soft shell crab was a disaster. I ordered the special, deep fried soft shell crab. Only 1 front claw out of 2 crabs, excessively fishy, semi hollow, & still had the "mustard"(ick). Hubby's crab stuffed flounder was MEH. Nothing special & pretty bland. Only positive note was our server. He was wonderful, attentive w/o hovering, & sweet to our toddler.

    We had an appetizer of Calamari. I am quite sure it came out of a box. My wife's salad was superb, it was a fried goat cheese salad. My She Crab soup was very good. Now however, we get to the entrees. We both had fish, my wife an encrusted Mahi. It was very dry and overcooked. I had a crab stuffed Flounder. Again, very dry. This is a fish restaurant and they don't know how to cook fish? Both dishes could have used a little sauce if they are going to overcook the items. This was our 50th wedding anniversary dinner and all in all it was quite disappointing.

    Although we moved from Norfolk-VA Beach a few years ago, dining at 456 Fish is a MUST when we visit. From the moment we enter to the time we depart, the entire staff goes above and beyond the expectations of fine dining. Our favorite server, Cat, and the manager, Jonathan, greet us like family friends. The quality of the food and presentation are second to none. One of our favs is the Grouper - always excellent. Our other fav is, of course, the crabcake. Dining at 456 Fish continues to be a special, and delicious, experience.

    I know, it's a bold statement, but 456 Fish's crab cakes are truly the best I've had since loving to the area nearly 2 years ago. They don't have any filler, and are coated in a potato chip crust that is to die for. The calamari was also excellent (especially with their house-made basil aioli). We went out for a date night on a Saturday night and were surprised there was only one other couple in the restaurant. Admittedly, we opted for a late (9:00) dinner. Regardless, the waitress was pleasant, attentive, and knowledgable about the menu. We shared the 456 ganache for dessert and it was one of the best ever chocolate desserts I've tasted. Highly recommend this restaurant if you live in, or are visiting, the Norfolk area!

    We went to 456 Fish on the recommendation of Open Table and nothing else. It turned out to be a great recommendation. Everyone enjoyed dinner - from the youngest diner sitting in a high chair to the parents. I can personally recommend the prime rib. There's also a reasonable selection of wines by the glass. We need to go back with more time to enjoy dessert. 456 Fish is a star in downtown Norfolk.
