    An amazing dining experience! From the menu selection, service and ambiance, everything was great! My wife and I had the scallops and filet mignon, both were outstanding. Cooked perfectly and the plate presentation was beautiful. The wine selection was ample and our server had a few suggestions to compliment both entrees. The she crab is the best I've had anywhere and the fried shrimp are unbelievable! A definite must for anyone in the area.... Will be back often!

    A last minute date night, turned into a fabulous find! The service was fantastic from the moment we stepped in. We were greeted and seated right away. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and gave us great suggestions, he was also attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed an appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes (a first for both of us!), for our entrees my husband had the bone in pork chop and I had the scallops. We finished off our evening with the Whiskey Bread Pudding. All courses were delicious and presented beautifully. We will definitely return!

    Our third visit - food has been consistently good. The noted vegetable of the day was switched out on several plates without notice, but was promptly replaced. Only downfall we have seen to date is noise - when the restaurant is busy it can be very difficult to hold a conversation.

    I have to share that I had a wonderful, make that outstanding, meal with best pals at The Landing last night. Chef Brent and his staff outdid themselves--from the appetizers, to the entrees, and ending with dessert, there were nothing but rave reviews from everyone. Our Server was attentive and very helpful in answering questions about the menu. If you haven't tried The Landing yet, you're missing out on some of the finest food in the area. If you have, stop back by and try the new fall menu. You won't be disappointed.

    Finally a restaurant that has a kitchen that gives a s**t on how the food looks when it comes out. We found the food excellent. Had the duck special, fried green tomatoes and César salad. We felt the tomatoes were good but nothing note worthy. Also felt the portion was a little on the small side. They were perfectly prepared otherwise. The César was good with real shaved parmesan. Again the portion could have been a touch bigger. The bar area has great energy and is comfortable. Seth took excellent care of us. The main dinning area needs some work to create a warmer atmosphere. We would definitely go back.

    We were pleasantly surprised. Although the noise level was really loud, we decided to give it a try anyway. We were so pleased we did. The waiter explained to us they are working on the open beams so the problem is being worked on. The food was great the presentation was beautiful. All of our dishes were out in a timely fashion and our waiter Sam was there when we needed him. Overall I'd recommend The Landing to anyone who would like a great dinning experience.

    This was my 7th visit to The Landing. I've only had lunch inside once, because at night, even half full, its way too loud inside . We love sitting outside and hope you can find some great heaters for us come colder weather. You'll have to find someway to insulate the dining hall. This place has the potential to be the best around if you can solve this noise issue. Food and service has been consistent and fabulous.

    My boyfriend and I tried out The Landing for the first time this past Saturday, October 25. The service and the food are unlike any other. We started off with the BBQ Citrus Wings, for our entrees we had the NY Strip Steak and the Stuffed Talapia, and we finished off with the Bread Pudding. Everything was amazing! My only complaint would be the noise level (the dining area and bar are in the same area). This place is a little pricey; I would definitely make this a "special occasion" restaurant i.e. anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, etc. We will definitely be back!

    As always, a great meal,good service. It was our anniversary and they even decorated our table. Crab dip was rich and creamy, salmon and caprese chicken both excellent. Loved the creme brûlée! That plus a bottle of wine made a great Date Night Deal for $60.00! The place is usually pretty full - a good sign - do make your reservations soon!

    My wife and I took my nephew and family for their anniversary to the Prime Rib/Lobster night. The restaurant is noisy and it's seems like the owners do not know what direction to go. The menu is upscale but the TVs and bar are open to the dining room making it feel like a sports bar. 4 of us had the prime rib/lobster special and one had the duck special. The prime rib was cooked excellently but the lobster tail was bland. The waiter forgot to bring drawn butter and when asked, he did but it was not warm enough to retain heat. The vegetable was asparagus and consisted of 5 skinny strands. We had been one time before for lunch and tried the she crab soup only to have it returned because it was bitter. The key lime pie was excellent.

    I come to The Landing at least once a week and I've been here for 3 different birthday celebrations thus far (mine was the best lol). The Landing has a very laid back atmosphere and it's definitely a spot for most occasions. Not so much for the little ones though. I have definitely enjoyed my many nights at the bar watching football and being the guinea pig of trying different drinks the bartender comes up with. By far a great spot to hang out with friends and family.

    Not only was the food excellent, the portion size was enormous. We left stuffed and very satisfied. The Bread Pudding was especially good. The waiter was cordial and efficient, and while dining in a large room with a remarkably high ceiling could have been noisy and impersonal, it wasn't. Nice place to eat. We certainly got our money's worth.

    Glad to see a new restaurant in West Neck moving here recently kept looking for something "close" for a mid week dinner out. Found the Landing and enjoyed it. Service excellent, food selection outstanding (tomato Bisque was incredible ) for a small local restaurant but the seating needs work. Booths are very stiff. For us "mature bodies" it wasn't very comfortable. Overall will become a favorite.

    Wonderful dinning experience and enjoyed the new place. Finally, a restaurant with personality. Food was outstanding for both taste and presentation. Service was friendly and very accommodating. Looking forward to returning. Plan to go up for apps and drinks for game day too. Ambient noise made it loud and hard to talk during dinning which is the only area for improvement.

    The Landing @ West Neck is nearby the Virginia Beach municipal center and ideal for quick, casual business lunches. We tried the shrimp plate and chicken salad plate and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our selections. Ingredients were fresh and not overly salted or prepared, which allowed the taste to shine through. Substituting fries for a vegetable made the shrimp plate a healthy choice. I would recommend it highly.

    The acoustics at The Landing were awful. Much needs to be done to keep noise levels to acceptable levels. It was so annoying that we had to move outdoors. The lighting was much too dim and coupled with the extremely small print on the menus made it almost impossible to read them. Food and service were fair at best. I had a half dozen raw oysters as an appetizer, with only one oyster qualifying as decent size. For $8, one expects a normal sized portion. Unlikely that we will ever return to this restaurant. They have a long, long way to go to becoming a " go to " place. Gerry A.

    We recently moved to the area (and sadly left behind the great Richmond, VA food scene). We are ECSTATIC to have The Landing nearby. The food is locally sourced, expertly prepared and set in a fantastic space that is casual upscale. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The local beer list was good (the wine list could use a revamp - it wasn't bad, just not as good as the food or beer list). VB southsiders finally have a restaurant that is worth NOT driving to Great Neck/Laskin. Support The Landing so we can have some more like it!

We made reservations for 7 and were greeted and were showed to our table promptly. Service was well timed and friendly. Travis was informative and helpful in describing the menu.

    Dining at the Landing on Friday night proved to be a very enjoyable and delicious experience. We loved our handsome and professional waiter Will, who was helpful and attentive despite having a huge party come in later in the evening. We loved the raw oysters appetizer, which was fresh and served with a nice apple mignonette sauce. I loved to the scallops entree I had that was served with red skin mashers and bok choy. The bok choy did have way too much salt in several bites and I couldn't finish that, but the scallops were prepared nicely. I enjoyed the roasted corn with bacon salsa, but there was little if any bacon noticed on my plate. Desserts were pretty good but not great. Wish it weren't so loud at times but got quieter later. Nice!

    We were long-time patrons of Anchor Inn, and are pleased to see that The Landing has kept the excellence of the food, service, and quality of the former restaurant with a completely new menu and staff. We had seafood, liquor, appetizers, wine and desert, and warned Kyle that it was not going to be our last visit.

    Our dinner was excellent as well as the outdoor seating area was quiet and perfect to have dinner with a few friends. Our waiter did a few things that lead me to believe he hasn't been in the restaurant industry very long. There were 7 of us at dinner and he did not ask if we wanted the bill split and brought out one check for US to all split up (which we did and we paid 4 different ways). My husband & I paid cash for our bill and he did not bring us our change (which turned out to be almost $30) and instead asked my husband "Did you want your change sir" when my husband replied "yes" the waiter had to go back inside and get it! He didn't even bring it to the table with him. He just assumed we would give it to him.

    We were celebrating and wanted to stay in the neighborhood and The Landing @ West Neck was new, so we decided to try it. We weren't disappointed! All the food we tried was exceptional. The proportions were reasonable as was the cost. I REALLY appreciated the fact that they didn't try to fill you up on bread or rolls! To me that is a big plus! We started with soup, She Crab and the Du Jour which was tomato bisque. Both were outstanding and could've been a meal. Our entrée came out in a timely manner and was hot and extremely good! Well worth the money! You don't feel rushed, the wait staff was very kind as was the atmosphere. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

    Took the family to dinner at the landing last night and the food was awesome. With a group of 6 we touched all areas of the menu and it was all excellent! Upscale casual with warm "barn style" vaulted ceiling and outdoor dining. Right at VB courthouse area of town convienent to many, but not stuck in a very busy commercial area. They are new and tweaking things, but the food isn't one of those things...it was great. Stop by and support local business supporting local producers...you'll be glad you did.

    We were sad to see Anchor Inn close as there are not many good choices for dining in the West Neck area. The Landing @West Neck exceeded our expectations in every area--most especially the food. We customarily go to Ruth's Chris for steak, but the N.Y. strip here was even better! Karen always liked the Anchor Inn's Tuna steak/mushroom/spinach dish, tried The Landing's Tuna-coconut risotto dish, & liked it even more. The wine- beer selections were good & I liked that we were able to sample the wine before ordering. Also happy that Bombay Sapphire is available for Martini's. Finally, our favorite 2 desserts are staples here: Key Lime Pie & Bread Pudding!

    A review was done before we left the restaurant. In essence it said that: Food presentation is very important to me and your presentation I had scallops and they were delicious. I did not leave a bite! We did wait a rather long time for our dinner and it would have been nice to have had some bread on the table. I would also like to see a chocolate choice on the dessert menu. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful. There were many people from West Neck on Fri. night and I have heard only compliments with regard to their dinner. Everyone said they would be back.
