Excellent service and the food was great! I definitely will be back.
Our server Diane was an absolute pleasure! The restaurant ambiance was pleasant and warm. This was a 1st date which I really enjoyed. The appetizers and entree’s were both delish. We will definitely return.
The service was amazing. The seafood was great, however the sides were cold.
First time at Norfolk Seafood. Great atmosphere and good food...
Was in VA Beach for a weekend trip. Restaurant was easy to find, but parking is not. Service and food was outstanding! Will definitely visit if in town again!
Great night out. Special service. Great drinks. Amazing food!
The overall service and food was amazing. I will definitely be coming back.
Food was delicious! Our waiter, Chris was attentive to every detail! The mood set by the staff was professional and fun! We have found a new place for us to go for our next celebration!
Following and enforcing safe service. Tables spaced and reservation was required. Had a dozen oysters, she crab soup, and salad. All was very good. Also enjoyed a bottle of wine, nice selection. Friendly services.
Great just all around great will be back soon
It was my boyfriend birthday, neither one of us had been to Norfolk Seafood Company. It was a surprise for him.The experience was everything I had vision and the food was outstanding and also the drinks. We will definitely be going back again.
Everything was perfect and most definitely come again. Food, lighting, and wait staff was phenomenal and I brag about this place now
Loved the food everything was outstanding. Oh but the bartender was superb!!! Great atmosphere, very helpful and friendly staff.
It was overall an outstanding experience. I enjoyed our date night with my beautiful wife. Thank you very much.
The only thing was a mix drink which was kind of weak with alcohol.
The waiter was pretty bad. He got our apps order, brought us our apps, then came back like 30 minutes later to see if we were still wanting to order dinner or if apps were going to be all. We asked what they had for desert, he told us, walked away and never asked if we wanted desert. We ended up skipping it (scared silly to see how long that would have taken) came back ran my card, charged me for an extra meal, asked if he could just give us a gift card for the difference (we told him we live out of town and would never be back) ran my card twice for the night.
Overall, great food, but better plan on camping out at this place.
We went to Norfolk Seafood Company to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were seated upon arrival which was great. Unfortunately I almost left as it took about 20 minutes for the waiter to come over to get our drink order. I'm glad we decided to stick it out. The food was amazing. I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. It had large pieces of lobster and the cheese sauce was flavorful and creamy. My husband had the Chicken Andouille Pasta. It has a lot of flavor to it. We both loved the little corn bread muffins that were served as well. Overall a great experience and we will be back to explore some of their other food offerings.
Highly recommended! The waitress was very hospitable and polite.
Amazing food !! Sooo yummy !! And the ambiance was perfect for our occasion. I felt like i was in my living room being by the fire pace I didn’t want to leave ! I loved every minute of it!
Booked our reservation for 1945 hours Saturday night at 1630 hours. Arrived at the venue at 1944, were seated by 1946, waitress was at our table be 1950 and we placed our order at 1955. Got an update from our server at 2020 that because of a large party (12 folks who had made a reservation) the kitchen was slammed and our dinner would be the first one out after the party was served. At 2035 we were offered salad or an appetizer - which we declined since we wanted to ensure room for our main course. At 2045 our server informed us that the manager would be delivering our food (she was aware we were not pleased with the wait) and at 2100 our meal arrived. We expressed our disappointment at the long wait and the manager said she was sorry - but nothing she could do. :( She would be happy to offer us a free desert. Again we expressed our disappointment - but didn't create a scene.
Half way through our meal (which we were enjoying! The food was great!) our server informed us that the manager was very sorry it took so long and that in addition to a desert she was going to comp the entire dinner! Needless to say we were surprised and thought the gesture was very generous.
We declined the desert - too full from dinner - and again thanked our server for her excellent service.
This was our second visit, the first was almost a year ago, and based on the food, service, and generous management, we'll certainly visit again when we're in Norfolk!
Highly recommend the food - excellent seafood!
Everything was great but the noise level was extremely loud. The service and food was excellent.
We’ve been there a number of times. This time no corn bread was offered even though others got it. The chowder was cold and the main dish was also cold. Was disappointed with this visit
Everything was excellent the meal the service I cannot wait to go back it was just that good and I am very picky it was amazing you will not be dissatisfied atmosphere was all so wonderful
Great service and good prices. food was great.
Excellent food! Will definitely be back.
I was never giving my to-go box. And I had a crab cake meal. The food and the atmosphere Was great. But I did not get my to-go box. Is the only thing I'm upset about
Great service and food! A+++. Our server was amazing.
Great food and excellent service paired with a lovely ambiance.
We had a lovely time at this restaurant and the food was amazing!
The service was amazing! Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. The value for the meal was awesome! The ambience was very lovely especially upstairs where we sat. I definitely recommend going there. This was a wonderful place for my boyfriend’s birthday celebration.
Relaxed dinner. Server Tanisha did a great job checking on us without hovering. Food was tasty and served hot
Food was average and the service was less than perfect
Overall had a great time. The absinthe table side service was outstanding and it was our first time having it. All in all I’m sad that I have lived in Norfolk for 4 years and now found this place.
Good food and service. The ettoufe was well prepared and cocktails were spot on. The atmosphere was lacking.
Waitress disappeared wasn’t attentive beer served in a wine glass that was less than 12 ounces had to asked another waitress to bring us bread
Excellent food and great ambiance
We never got our food after waiting over an hour. They said they only had one cook working... on a Saturday and the people next to us at the bar got three apps in the time we waited. We asked three times nicely. Last time we walked out and got pizza around the corner. Will never go back (and we’ve been a few times before).
