The food is beyond bad. For a table of 4 we ordered 4 different entrees. Everything tasted bad. They couldn't even make potatoes taste good. The fried potatoes that came with the steak looked and tasted like powder inside the fried shell. The only good thing about the restaurant is the view and design inside.
When the three of us arrived at the restaurant, the hostess seemed quite upset when we requested a table near the lovely, large blue-tinted window overlooking the ocean rather than the table in the middle of the room. Yes, they had to clean and set-up the table near the window, but really, you would have thought we had asked for her first born rather than to move some cutlery a few feet. The waitstaff was quite pleasant throughout the meal.
Ambiance was quite nice, with a very pleasant band fronted by someone who sounded a good deal like Jeff Buckley. The food, well...I had the Divers Scallops on a bed of spinach and pickled red onions - this was probably the most flavorful dish but there was only one note and I got bored with it after my initial hunger was slaked. My 12 yo daughter had the rotisserie chicken and seemed to enjoy it, but her side of 'cornbread' wasn't touched. My boyfriend chose the Mahi Mahi special. It was dry and the side of what we think was polenta was quite bland. Like the cornbread, it came in a small cast-iron pan. Kinda cute. My daughter liked the chocolate molten-cake dessert but we declined and went for gelato afterwards.
Overall a resounding 'meh.'
Ordered NY Strip, medium, came well done and charred, with bland potatoes and runny creme brûlée. My guest ordered a burger, also medium, came cooked through and through and dry. Her dessert was peach cobbler w/ice cream. The ice cream, vanilla, was the best part. With all the other options available in this area, Fusion is one and done for me.
Interesting menu with options pleasing to many.
Nice location by the VA beach......had a nice scenic window view......food was only fair
I was looking forward to trying a new restaurant and had a good idea of what I wanted from the posted menu. When I arrived, the menu was changed to a special prix fix menu for V-Day and you could only choose from that menu. Additionally, I'm not a big drinker and several items on the menu (appetizer and dessert) had alcohol included but not listed on the menu. The food itself was average but priced super high. I wouldn't go back.
The restaurant is within a hotel. On Feb. 13, they only offered a set menu at $55 per person. This was not advertised on OpenTable beforehand. We would have booked elsewhere had we known.
The food was OK, not great. The server was assigned too many tables and could not keep track of our needs as well as those with the numerous other tables he had assigned to him. Our entrée order arrived somewhere between warm and cold. It was difficult to get our drinks refilled and details about our order were forgotten or overlooked.
It isn't worth the price. I would not go back unless I heard food quality had improved and service staff was sufficient to meet the needs of their customers.
The food hot and delicious- no extra seasoning required. Our filet mignons were cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.
Our visit was to celebrate my oldest daughter graduation from Old Dominion University, and we were all glad we chose it. The view was amazing, the food was very good, all 6 dishes, and the service was spot on. Not rushed or ever without a refill, all the food came out at the same time, and all very good. Good place to get a good bite, enjoy the ocean view and follow it up with a walk along the beach.
Sorry food was horrible sent a meal back Restaurant was empty no reason to have to wait to be waited on drinks ordered on the rocks poor pour for price of top shelf drinks
Three of my party's meals were just fine. However, I suggest not ordering the shortribs. It was obvious to everyone in my group that the Fusion kitchen has no idea how to cook this type of meat. Shortribs NEED TO BE slow braised for a long period of time, to allow the connective tissue and cartilage to break down. This restaurant basically served very nicely flavored chewy meat with a rubberbands consistency. In my opinion, the shortribs were prepared by an inexperienced new short order cook with no supervision, rather than an experienced chef. Steak was good, meatloaf was good, crab cales were just soso.
The restaurant faces Virginia Beach and the view of the ocean and boardwalk are great. We were seated right at the window. The she-crab soup was awesome, and we also had the cheese platter, which was good. We ordered shrimp pasta and the sauce was not good, and the pasta was not cooked properly. Unfortunately the meals did not keep up with the view. There were also a lot of families in the restaurant and the noise level was high. As the restaurant is just off the lobby, it seems a lot of people just use the area as a public area.
The chef did an outstanding job creating a balanced vegan meal.
First visit and very pleasantly surprised. We ordered the bison which was done to perfection-spicy, not gamy and great treat for the palate.
Ambience, service and food were all exceptional . Server was very familiar with the menu and guided us through it.
The view of the ocean-front is unparalleled!
Prices were modest, given location and offerings,
Highly recommended and will definitely be returning!
There is only like 10 things on the menu and the staff never came back to bring the check. I had to go looking for someone to pay.
We were seated at a window table overlooking the boardwalk and ocean. Since it's off season and it was a Monday night it was quiet and we weren't rushed through our meal. Since our table was directly across from the kitchen entrance it was very annoying that the wait staff have to announce loudly "corner" "corner" to avoid any collisions. Maybe they can put mirrors up???? The food was delicious and beautifully presented. My husband had fresh catch tuna and I had the tuna & salmon tacos with a fresh homemade salsa on top. They did not have a gluten free menu but offered that the Chef would work with my husband's dinner selections. We had creme Brule for dessert and it was wonderful.
When we were first seated the waiter came up and asked for a drink order. It took over 30 minutes before our drinks were served to our table. And our waiter wasn't the one who server it....it was another server. I believe the reason why we were served was because I told hostess that I was going to leave and unless we were served. We decided at that point to leave. After 35 minutes of sitting & not even having our appetizer or dinner order being taken it was time to go. Total disappointment.
We arrived and were not greeted with any kind of happiness, the hostess even looked upset that we were even there. There was only 1 other family in the restaurant, with 2 kids and they were running around playing (the little girl kept playing right by our table even after I tried to block her path, she just ran right by and the parents didn't or staff didn't do anything about it). The food took forever to come out and they even messed up the salmon dish as it needed to be prepared gluten free. We only order mac & cheese, shrimp and grits, a salad, the salmon and a cup of soup, which was the smallest cup of soup and side of mac & cheese I'd ever seen in my life.
We were looking for something upscale with a view. The large windows overlooking the ocean are wonderful but the feel of the place is sunk by lights that are too bright, staff that are too loud & chummy, & food that sounds fancy but proved muddled & disappointing.
We had the Bison meatloaf & crab cakes. Both were very good. The only negative is the length of time to get the meal. The place was empty, but still took over 2.5 hours to eat.
