Leaping Lizard Cafe
Food is delicious. Service is excellent. Hostess worked hard to get us in when we made a late reservation. Seating is not the most comfortable.
Always a great meal at LL! If you’ve not been here yet, you’re missing out on a Shore Drive secret spot.
The food we had was delicious and the service was attentive! A very nice neighborhood gem! Looking forward to returning and sampling other menu items! Thumbs up!
Awesome gem that serves fresh, healthy, delicious meals. The key lime pie is the best I’ve ever tasted!
The noise was overwhelming. Was seated inside and the patrons at the bar were yelling and talking very loud. Totally ruined our meal. There was plenty of outdoor seating but hostess seated us indoors. Meal was disappointing. Went from being one of my favorites to maybe never coming back. Food was not up to par and the combinations were pretty bad. Meatloaf and salmon cakes were both a poor choice. We ate it because we ordered it and there were no fresh salmon options. The apple sauce on the meatloaf was strange and ruined the entree. Keep it simple, these meals were culinary failures.
This restaurant was very fun, and our waiter did a good job. I will be going back there again. I highly recommend the blackened salmon Mac and cheese.
Went for Valentines night. My husband was served a different dish than he ordered and my scallops were cold-both went back and were corrected. Free round of drinks was offered for the error and were appreciated. My only real complaint was that the food came out too quickly as we hadn't finished the appetizer when dinner came out. We were actually in the restaurant barely an hour total. Nice but a little rushed for a holiday.
The food was amazing as always! Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable.
For a Valentines Day dinner, the price of the menu items were pretty reasonable.
Parking lot is the weakest link. Too rough for women wearing heels (specially after dark...not much lighting).
The overall decor was ok, something could be improve when it comes to the space heaters....maybe a cute fireplace could have been better.
I recommended Leaping Lizard to a friend of whom had an after Valentines date with her hubby at the cafe. Another satisfied customer....
Great as always!
By far my favorite restaurant. Have been several times and have never been disappointed!
Our favorite restaurant
Excellent!!! The food is consistently soo very fresh, healthy and delicious. We cannot wait to go back. Very casual and quaint.
always a great place to dine. low key great food and ambience.
Today was Valentines Day. My wife and I work in close proximity so I made reservations for us at the Leaping Lizard. I love the farm to table menu plan. The food is always delicious and healthy. We both had a great time. The start of an awesome Valentines Day.
Friends birthday. As always, everyone enjoyed dinner!
The food was beautifully presented. The server was very professional and likeable. I was not able to find items on the menu that I liked and were on a low cholesterol diet. I would have preferred filtered water. I had a great time with my friend.
Good food as always.
Excellent food and service. Very creative menu with dining experiences you won’t find elsewhere. Casual but elegant food!!
Loud loud loud
Only negative is you feel like your crammed in, they try to put to many tables in a small space.
I was disappointed in the service. We got an appetizer and had to ask for the bread that went with it. Took for ever for us to order I had to catch the waitress when she went by. It was like she didn’t care. I informed them it was my daughter birthday. Nothing done nothing said. For this reason I am not sure I will go back.
Restaurant was closed!
We always have a great meal to LL. This time it was rockfish over black rice — excellent. Impeccable service and great value!
Everything we had was amazing and our server was great! We even had a chance to meet with the dessert chef. We will definitely be back!
One of my all time favorites - but on both visits over the last coupe of weeks the service has been very slow. Once when it was busy so maybe understandable - but once when the patronage was very light. I will chalk it up to a bad spell - love the restaurant and the food is great. Another try for sure.
Very comfortable atmosphere, and amazing food.
Definitely becoming a regular here.
As usual the food was very good. The duck tacos are very good and the desserts were also very good.
As always, consistent fine food and terrific service. A winning combination that is hard to beat.
Certainly one my favorite venues in Tidewater Virginia.
Food was excellently prepared, very fresh and so yummy. Quaint spot with bakery attached where they make their own breads and desserts. Can’t go wrong here.
The food was exceptional, but there was only 3 items on the menu that appealed to me, so there was a limited choice.
Always love Leaping Lizard! Best local spot in town! Highly recommend.
Bustling lunch crowd on a Thursday, but service was prompt and attentive. Server made well thought-out suggestions and offered modifications for personal preferences and diet. A perfect lunch spot - and the decor and ambiance are interesting and creative!
I have had better food in the past... it seemed to be an off night... my food was ok but nothing special. I will try it again and hope for better results
This place is no longer a hidden gem. The service is great and the food is even better.
My family and I have loved coming here for years. It was a no brainer to suggest Leaping Lizard for our date night a couple weekends ago. Everything was perfect as usual! Keep it up! Love you guys!
Great evening-fantastic service and to die for food!
Very quick, pleasant service & very good food
I made reservations; however, there was not a table available. There was no one waiting when I arrived and after a 15 minute wait, I was given the next available table.
Excellent service, thanks for the good food. Will be back again soon !
