We focus on pristinely prepared food with refined and elegant service.
Our cuisine highlights the seafood tradition of Tidewater Virginia, but our diverse menu has something for everyone!
Nice dinner place . Good service and great seafood options
We were lucky to find this gem.
Ordered from the Happy Hour menu.
The best crabcakes I've had in 29 years!
Great service and food. Hope to be in the area again soon.
Outstanding service. Steve was the best. The food was most excellent.
This was our first visit to 456 Fish and will not be our last. Our server, Steve, made sure our experience was incredible. He helped recommend a bottle of wine based on my wine's preference for the evening and then, based on the wine selection walked us through several selections on the menu that would pair well (and why). We each picked one of the specials that evening and the food was outstanding. Throughout the meal, Steve was present, but never overbearing. Unfortunately, we were attending a show that night and did not have time to stick around for dessert, but many of the options sounded so good that we look forward to going back when we can include dessert in our evening.
I really like this restaurant. I love it on Wednesday. The difference is on Wednesday it is not only a great meal, it is a great deal. The date night special allows two people to share 1 starter, 2 main dished and 1 dessert, plus a bottle of wine. We have enjoyed the date night special on three different occasions and I am always extremely satisfied. We will be back.
Great food, service and everything was timely!
Zach W. was one of the best waiters we have ever had. His knowledge of the menu was incredible, his service was top notch and he made our dining experience incredible. Thanks for a great dinner!
Waiter Steve took care of us in style! I had the halibut special which ranks amount the best meals I’ve ever eaten. We will definitely be back.
Great food and service. Loved watching the ceiling fans. You don’t see the belt driven to often. Will be going again.
Great visit! Food and service was wonderful. We would go again
We went to 456 Fish for dinner before a concert. Food was great! Our waiter was very personable and took great care of us. Would definitely recommend!
Was a great nite they did all they could make my Birthday visit a good time.. Great greeting, good table and friendly attentive service.. We'll be back! Deb and Bill Schmidt Wmsburg
Awesome food, though a bit skimp. I had the grouper. It was a strip of fish approximately the width of two fingers. It was my Anniversary and noted as such in the reservation and yet no one commented on our special occasion. To make matters worst the manager visited all tables with the exception of our’s. This is the second tear we celebrated our anniversary at 456 Fish. I think we will choose differently next time.
Food was just bland. Not sure who was cooking that night. Also lost appetite after seeing huge bug run across the floor. Just not a good night and this is one of our favorite places.
Service, food and atmosphere was fabulous!
456 Fish is my favorite restaurant in the Hampton Roads area and has yet to disappoint me each and every time I have dined there.
The food had great flavor as usual. The shrimp on the fried shrimp appetizer were much smaller than normal. $13 was a little expensive for 3 small shrimp.
I took my husband to dinner at 456 for his birthday. It was a Tuesday evening and blessedly quiet. We could hear each other talk. A big plus. Our waitress was excellent. Always attentive. I am not a sea food fan but he is and enjoyed the oyster appetizer and the lamb shank and shrimp dish. My chicken was fairly dry with sticky risotto. The goat cheese salad was excellent. Overall a good diner. I would recommend and go back, but not for the chicken.
No! Our dinner was cold and extremely over-cooked. We think it had been kept under a warmer while we ate our appetizer. We had told our waiter to wait to put our dinner order in until we finished our drink and hordoevres . I don't think he bothered to tell the chef. There was almost no other guests in the restaurant the night we were there yet our service was only so-so. Even the calamari was over-breaded. I was not impressed and will not return!
My husband and I came for brunch with our visually impaired family member and dog. Our server, Amber, was very attentive and caring. At the sign of a few sprinkles of rain, they even allowed us (along with our dog) to step inside to pay our bill. Wonderful experience.
We arrived at the height of the pre-theater dinner service so the server were a little challenged to get our drinks and appetizers to our table as quickly as we had expected. However, he made every attempt to make sure we had everything we needed and even mixed my cocktail himself when the first that arrived was made incorrectly. (Thank you Zach!). Our meal was delicious, the atmosphere was lively and we were able to chat and enjoy our dinner conversation. Nice place to have dinner with friends!
A great experience all around. Staff was VERY courteous and food was delicious.
Was a great evening.. Greeting was super, sat at the bar a bit all as fine, nice wines good pour and friendly service.. Got seated had a great table was our anniversary.. server was super - everything went together fine from wine to after-dinner desert coffee's was great.. Look forward to our next visit/
Pre -show dinner.
Date night dinner plus two others was delightful. The mahi and crab was outstanding. Fried oyster appetizer was very well done. The date night entree options are a bit limited, but the preparation, as always, was top notch.
So many people recommended this place to us, I had very high hopes for an amazing dinner. Our service was great, 90% of the food was good. Our bread pudding tasted like they had unsuccessfully tried to warm it prior to serving. The outside was warm the inside felt ice cold. My scallops had a weird almost chicken like texture. I am glad we went, maybe we will return..
Steve, our server was terrific! The food was very good—I had the seafood risotto—and the wine, beer, and cocktail options were plentiful. Definitely would go again.
The entire dining experience was wonderful. The waiter was very personable and knew the menu well. The food was superb. The blackened halibut with spinach Florentine was one of the best meals I have ever had.
Thank you LauraBelle - I'll let the Chef know how much you loved it! Hope to see you again soon
This was our first time here and definitely not the last. The food was amazing along with the presentation. Staff was very nice and our sever Gabe was knowledgeable of the dishes.
Thank you Cynthia! I'll be sure to let Gabe and the Chef know how much you loved your dining experience
food is always exceptional and just because it was restaurant week, nothing suffered. she crab soup the best in all of Tidewater, delicious crème brulee…all of us had a fabulous time. Kevin was an excellent waiter. such a good day. Highly recommend it for anyone wanting to have great food and great experience.
Our server was so nice and profesional. The food was amazing!
As always, thy the food, the service, the atmosphere was excellent. 456 never disappoints!
This was an awesome dinner - a lot of great food and a great deal for restaurant week. Our server, Zack, was the best! So friendly and accommodating and efficient!! Will definitely return!
Excellent customer service, good food and a nice atmosphere.
Went for the $35 dinner during Downtown Norfolk Restaurant Week. The She Crab soup had huge chunks of crab meat and was very flavorful. The fried oyster appetizer was delicious as well - small, crisp, tasty oysters. The salmon entree over Boursin risotto was excellent, if a bit stingy on the fish portion. The blackened halibut entree was perfectly cooked, and the cream sauce was the perfect accompaniment for the blackening spices. The amaretto chocolate sin torte was unbelievable - it's how chocolate should be done. The lemon chess pie was authentic and delicious as well. The only hiccup on the evening was a 25-minute wait between the entree and dessert. The restaurant was packed and apparently they were down one person in the kitchen. Our waiter offered us free coffee to compensate. All and all, a very enjoyable meal.
Food will definitely be back!
We went for restaurant week and it was delicious! The service was great too - our waiter even fixed our wobbly table!
Food and service was outstanding. Very happy to have such a quality restaurant in Norfolk.
Took a first date here. I was delighted to see the restaurant has maintained their high quality over the last few years when I haven’t been able to get here. Manager was terrific (lisa)
Wonderful restaurant just too loud when full
