A word from Mizuno Japanese Restaurant
Mizuno Japanese Restaurant is a family-run business that first opened in 1996. Located in Virginia Beach, Mizuno is embedded in a seafood hotspot, only 25 miles south of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and 158 miles south of Hatteras, North Carolina. Chef-owner Wataru Mizuno feels blessed to be a sushi chef in a culinary trifecta like Virginia Beach. Mizuno and his team take advantage of the restaurant's access to local sources by artfully composing daily specials that feature fresh shrimp, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, flounder, blue crabs and oysters, to name a few. The hook's simple. Mizuno resists complicated sauces and excessive ingredients. Instead, he flavors scallops from the world famous Chesapeake Bay, adding nothing more, at times, than a dash of citrus and a pinch of sea salt. Wataru Mizuno: Chef/Owner Born in Japan, Wataru Mizuno received his formal training in Tokyo, as an apprentice under master Teruo Sato.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Mizuno is a great sushi restaurant with some of the best sushi in Virginia Beach. It is very expensive though. Enjoy but expect to pay for it."

  • "Any chance I get I come to Mizuno and I am never disappointed. The food is fresh, delicious, and often deceptively simple. I am from the Pacific Northwest and this restaurant is the only place I've found in Hampton Roads that serves such light and delicious Japanese cuisine."

  • "Had my first experience with Mizuno on a date this weekend. I couldn't get a reservation for 7; yet the restaurant was only half full for our 6:45 reservation until we left at 8:30. We sat for about 10 minutes until the bartender realized no one helped us and sent someone over. We were told they were out of uni and toro when we ordered. So we changed about half of our order, then They came back and told us they had uni, so we changed it again. We never got our seaweed salads. Ginger didn't come until we were almost done eating. The sticky rice wasn't too sticky and fell apart after a quick dip in soy sauce. Overall the food was very good, and they do offer some higher end items you can't find elsewhere. The service was poor"

  • "My husband and I dined here during restaurant week. He ordered off the special menu and I ordered sushimi from the regular menu. Both meals were very good and very fresh."

  • "Mizunos is Hampton Roads Best Sushi Restaurant . . . Period We have been a patron since opening. The new location is phenomenal with the atmosphere & expanded menu. Unlike many others, Mizuno's diverse menu has something for everyone, even sushi newbies & those that have not quite developed their palate. Walter, as we all fondly know him, continues to set the standard in both preparation & presentation, and his two assistants are both extremely capable as well. The entire team's dedication to ensuring you receive the finest dining experience is evident from the precisely set tables, to the never ending clean plates & ginger that arrive punctually. Everyone we have referred is amazed when they arrive and equally ecstatic when they finish."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed the Chef's Choice, as well as the vegetable roll and shrimp tempura roll. Our server, Sasha, was very friendly and helpful."

  • "Looking for a last minute reservation we found Mizuno and were happily surprised. Everything was enjoyable, food, service and ambiance. Even with our 3 year old son. When making the reservation on Open Table I noted it was our anniversary yet neither the hostess nor our server mentioned it. That would have tipped the scale with regard to service and attentiveness to detail."

  • "This place is a great find in VA Beach. You certainly won't be disappointed with the energy, the food or especially the service. Josh treated us like a old friend he hadn't seen in years. Which was all very impressive. Of course it all became clear to us when the bill came so brace yourself. It was worth the money but it will keep me from coming back."
