This place was fabulous! My
This place was fabulous! My fiancee and I went to dinner to celebrate our engagement, and it was the perfect romantic date night restaurant. Our server was fantastic - I had him choose the wine to pair with the trout that I ordered - and he was attentive without being intrusive. The plate presentation was beautiful, and the food tasted even better. We will definitely be back!

I took an out of town friend on Sunday night, and we loved every bit of our dinner. She had the mushroom salad and scallops, and I had the watercress salad and pork chop. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine, and shared the chocolate dessert. Everything was fabulous, and our waiter made the night even better with good recommendations and great service. I can only say good things!!!

Wrong wine ? but still good...
We talked with waiter extensively about Pinots and our favorites. I ordered the Wild Hog Saralees Pinot Noir but was served the Wild Hog Zinfandel. The zinfandel portion of the label was not noticed until after i had my first glass. I liked their Zin and it was a date with my wife so I gave her the taste and she said she liked it but disapointing to have received the wrong wine. Jumbo shrimp was good a little expensive for 1 bite. The Tuna appetizer was tasty and presented well. Warm mushroom salad was small but nice. There was no salt or pepper on the table or I would have added some to it. The Trout main course was very pretty but the buttermilk sauce was bland. Coffee dessert was an A+.

We look forward to our next
We look forward to our next occasion to visit this fine, yet casual dining restaurant.

Enjoyed this dinner. Live
Enjoyed this dinner. Live music from the bar and speaker music in the restaurant were competing. We were trying to figure our what two songs were playing at once. How about turning one off.

Another amazing night at 37N.
Another amazing night at 37N. I can not say enough about this place.....sat night there was a guy playing music in the bar and he was really good, food was wonderful ( our table had shrimp, salads, halibut, and scallops-great wine too), and Jeremy our waiter was spot on. I love dining here and I am so happy that there are restaurants of this caliber in the vb dining scene!

First visit...Tuesday evening
First visit...Tuesday evening 6:30pm res. Nice bar, good bartender. Hostess noted my arrival said no problem enjoying cocktails while biz dinner party arrived. seated around 7 and place nearly full with suit crowd for biz dinners. Pleasant server but dining room was understaffed for the crowd. where was the manager helping out...server did recognize the slow service and admitted they were understaffed. took a while for drinks and to take orders. once orders taken, food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Well prepared and presented with nice sized portions from the fish specials to the scallops and ribs. Apps were tasty and good portions. Nice wine list with typical higher end restaurant markup but server didnt know wine well.

Been wanting to try this restaurant
Been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. It was an amazing experience. When you first enter the parking lot you know you are somewhere special. The décor inside is absolutely beautiful. The dining room is huge, so you don't feel like you are cramped even when the tables are full. Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us pick some items off the dinner menu. I really enjoyed everything I tried. The presentation of the appetizers and entrees we ordered was spot on. It was just a great experience.
I wanted to mention was the entertainment. There was a live performer in the bar while we were dining. Instead of being a distraction or overpowering, it really added to the experience and was way better than just the radio.

New Kid on the Block
This restaurant opened in July of 2012 in an area noted for good restaurants of all flavors. So it can be challenging for a new comer to make an impression and thrive. Thirty 7 North has a great concept. The menu is innovated with reasonable prices. A very good wine selection. The staff was very attentive.
My business associates from Germany were very impressed. We had a very enjoyable evening, stayed 3+ hours!
4/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing evening with friends. We started in the bar for a couple signature cocktails and then were seated in the dining room over looking what looked like a fishing dock. That was fun, as they were busy that night bringing in our fresh catch. We all ordered apps, which were fantastic. My friends both had the scallops and the trout. I had the halibut special, which I really enjoined. The service was non-intrusive and they seemed to work together as we never really needed anything throughout dinner. Things almost just happened. This was my second visit and my friends first; we will be back. The server mentioned they change the menu often so that alone will be my reason!
4/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was superb and it has a water front setting. The staff was very attentive. We will return!
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
A first time treat
I was pleasantly surprised by the tasty food and vibriant atmosphere. The only thing I did not care for were the hydrated morsels instad of using fresh ones with the bison filet.. The morsels had not soaked long enough and there for were dry and rubbery.
The waitstaff was very attentative.

This is a special find and a must go for anyone looking for a small nook and cranny place in Virginia beach. It has romance ambiance and the best food anywhere near the beach.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
ONE OF THE BEST
A rainy night,, gloomy and dull, Brightened when we walked in the Door! Our first time here and the food and service was AMAZING! Our server was not over attentive, the food was excellent, and the dessert was to die for. We will definitely return, and soon!
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, service and ambience!
Great food, service and ambience! A member of our party required gluten-free food and the restaurant was extremely accommodating from the minute we made the reservation. We will definitely be going back on a regular basis.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hampton roads needs more restaurants like thirty seven north, a seasonal menu dishing up fresh local ingredients. Not to mention a wine list offering a broad choice of varietals. all this circumferenced by a bright, open and tastefully designed restaurant. I cant wait to go back and see what more they have to offer!
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
A very enjoyable evening
I went to Thirty 7 North for the first time over the Memorial Weekend. It was a delight. I was there early enough to still have sunlight and could enjoy looking out the large windows to see the boat slips and boat traffic on both sides of the water.
The wine list is exceptional.
The food was excellent as well. I would have liked an abundance of local sea food items given that the restaurant is off Shore Drive, but they did have soft shell crab for those who like them. My halibut was perfectly cooked.
The server was a great guy and had been there since they opened a year ago. Very knowledgeable.
I definitely will be back when business takes me to that part of Hampton Roads.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely place for dinner
Good food, good drinks and a nice open dining area. Service was very good and the food was delicious. I look forward to eating there again.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food never ceases to amaze
The menu changes to reflect the local fresh ingredients of the day. The food is spectacularly prepared and presented. Nothing disappoints. The meals are awesome.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great dinining experience - the live music was awesome and added to the experience. The food was wonderful, from appetizers to the scallops, to the skirt steak and the desserts.

Wonderful spot for an anniversary
We had a fantastic experience. The food was great and we really liked that the menu was accentuated by local VA fare. We also received truly exceptional service even though there were multiple other very large groups dining that night.

Top Wine List in the Area
Mondays is a great day for 37 North. Half off wine and you have the restaurant to yourself. The menu is seasonal but the service by the servers like "Dr J" is year round.
On this night we had the sausage flat bread for a first course and the flat iron steak for our second. The flat bread was flavorful and the steaks was cooked to perfection.
The wine was Chataneuve-De-Pape, normally $60, but on this day, $30.

Great Place in Williamsburg
I love the art in the restaurant. The food was out of this world. It is a great place for a special occasions.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My New Favorite Spot
I had heard so many great things about Thirty 7 North that we had to try it. Well they were right. From our greeting when we walked in to our service which was incredible. These were only highlighted by our dishes. We had the Roasted Oysters which were the best I have ever had. They do have great seafood choices but I went with a New York Strip that was the best I have had in a very long time. We will be back soon with friends!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome food and take out wine
We started with a recommendation from the server and tried the buffalo shrimp, and the oyster rockefeller. Both were unbelievable but the oysters were over the top. Definitely the best rockefeller I have ever had. For dinner I had the Tuna and it was cooked perfectly and my wife had the tenderloin. She said it was the best steak she has had in Hampton Roads. Cooked to perfection. My wife and I love to enjoy a nice bottle of wine and we found a couple of nice bottles we typically cannot get at the local wine shops. We ended up buying a couple bottles to take home with us. We will definitely come back it was one of the best meals I have had outside of my own cooking in a long time.

Food was exceptional. Our server was vigilant, knowledgeable, and exceedingly polite.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been here before and enjoyed everything. The food is spectacular and menu is simple and not confusing, that we enjoy. It has just the right amount of options to please everyone in our group. The chef always has a nice special to offer or maybe we luck out each time we come. The service by the dr j was excellent as usual. We will be back again.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey But Nice
Our first time here, based on recommendation of neighbors. Service was excellent. The décor is upscale and very nice. Apps and entrees were beautifully presented, and generally excellent. Two items on the menu were not available. A crab cake special was offered, but disappointed. Cherry pie dessert was rather bland and without the zing typical in a cherry pie. But all-in-all a very pleasant dining experience. We will return to give them another chance to impress us.
7/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great for large group
I had a party of 16 and every single person told me how good the food was and what a great restaurant choice it was. Even when I called just hours before the reservation time - to add two more folks - they (Jay, specifically) were more than accommodating and offered me two choices of location in the restaurant. Everyone in my party had a fantastic time and loved the ambience. I will definitely use Thirty 7 North again for a corporate dining event! I plan to go back soon myself with my husband for a date night.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Welcome to a new star!
Great food prepared with attention to detail often forgotten in other upscale eateries! The use of sauces to enhance the excellent quality of the selected menu items lifted the experience to a higher level. Don't forget the desserts, the banana pudding was a highlight!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better second time around
It takes a while for a restaurant to fine tune the kitchen but our last experience resulted in 4 very pleased diners. It had been a year since we were last there. The menu was exciting. Everyone loved their appetizers, very fresh salads and wonderful gazpacho. The entrees were selected from a nice variance in offerings, all showing imagination from the chef. It was August and therefore fresh flavorful vegetables were expected and delivered. We hope the success continues because we like the set up of the restaurant with the bar scene separated from the dining area, bring about a better conversation atmosphere. We all will go back.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine, fresh and local
The food is first rate, which- combined with airy retro decor, waterside view, and emphasis on quality ingredients (from their own farm!)- would normally earn 5 stars. The fried shrimp were HUGE: crisp outside and succulent inside. Entrees were perfect, and perfectly seasoned (so, no salt or pepper shakers). Lemon panacotta came with rich buttery shortbread and fresh berries that fizzed! Chocolate tart w/ gelato was to die for: warm dark chocolate oozed from a caramelized top and crisp pastry shell. But. Service, while pleasant and professional, was slooow. They are mingy with the breadbasket (each person got exactly one tiny muffin and slice of bread). And why no spoons on the table? Our servers had to fetch them for soup and dessert.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Home Run
Thirty 7 North knows how to do it right. Our Appetizers started it off correctly, Roasted Oysters were simply the best. We also had a Tomato Salad that was incredible, I was told due to the fact that the tomatoes came from their farm. The Entrees were even better. I had the scallops which were absolutely perfect. My wife had a New York Strip which was the best we have had in Virginia Beach! We will be back soon! Great Job!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Half Off Wine Mondays
As always the food at 37 was great. The menu changes quarterly and the specials are great. For appetizers, we had the stuffed oysters and the heirloom salad. Entree, I ordered the skirt steak amd my wife had the pork that melted in your mouth. For dessert I had the bananna pudding and my wife had the pecon pie. A fabulous meal. Because it was Monday, they had half off wines, so I had an Oregon blend that was normally $60, but $30 on this night. The bottle was full bodied and delicious.
As always, we asked for the server to be "Dr J". He was engaging and great.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a surprise!
We tried Thirty 7 North for the first time Friday night after passing this restaurant numerous times. Wow, what a surprise! The vegetables are grown on their own farm and were delicious! The food was outstanding. We will definitely be going back again very soon.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
We went here for a special occasion. The food and atmosphere were great, as well as our server Kat.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again the fresh local foods, thanks Barry, the service, thanks Dr "J" and Jen were perfect. What more can one ask when the NY Strip is perfection, Pork is great, melt in your mouth scallops, squash fritters are wonderful, excellent mac and cheese. As expected... A restaurant with the right key people doing what they do best.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was great!
We had friends join us for dinner, the food was excellent. Beef tenderloin and bone in rib eye were perfect, the Crab cake and scallops were as tasty as it gets. One of our favorites is the buffalo bacon starter. Of course the sides were just as tasty. Thanks to the staff for wonderful service.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner with good friends
We had the best waiter. He was very informative and attentive. Unfortunately the kitchen can't seem to handle number of people the restaurant holds. We have had that experience before that food is very slow coming out of the kitchen. In this case we did not complain but were told our appetizers were complimentary. That was very nice and unexpected.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive, but exceptional
The food was exceptional; the service was top notch. There is nothing not to like about Thirty 7 North except for the high prices.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My "simply grilled" tuna (catch of the day) was the most perfectly prepared tuna steak in my 61 years...perfectly caramelized char marks, pink at the center, and unbelievably moist throughout. The roasted, halved, creamer potatoes and the roasted mushrooms I chose were flavorful and firm. My wife's scallops (seared on just one side) were almost dessert-like in sweetness and countered nicely by the mizuna. The cocktail menu and wine list complement the kitchen's fresh approach. Unstuffy, open, contemporary decor. Nice ambiance. The lighting above the booths along the north wall was a bit brighter than perfect and the service was charming, yet a little uneven. Thirty 7 North is at the top of my very short list of places worthy of a return.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, Thirty Seven North did not disappoint. We treated good friends to dinner and they had never been to the restaurant before but certainly will return. The specials were wonderful, salads very fresh and tasty and the Black Chicken was wonderful. Can't wait to return!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Keep up the good work!
The food is special, the wait staff is first rate and here's hoping they have a long run!

First Visit and We Will Be Back!
Appreciated the tasty amuse bouche (ham and apple with port drizzle). The fried shrimp I would not order again, (can't help compare to Steiny's where the shrimp are lighter, less heavily battered), and the bread is not tempting, but the remainder of the meal was delicious: flounder, seared tuna, chicken breast. Probably enjoyed the veggies most of all: perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned brussel sprouts with lardons and broccoli rabe. The dessert we shared was worth every calorie: cherry and chocolate bar with coffee ice-cream and cocoa nib and granola sprinkle. Wish this restaurant had one or two lower priced dinner options (beside the $12 burger) so that I could eat here more often!
