Leaping Lizard Cafe
The Fall Harvest Salad with Salmon was delicious!
Delicious lunch on the porch for the four of us. Everyone was happy with food and whole Lizard experience.
Always great service and food! Will come back many more times.
Can't come to Virginia Beach without eating at this place.
Always a treat.
Always amazing. Have not once been disappointed. The crab cakes are my favorite followed by the empowered plant desserts! I look so forward to eating here with my family. Delicious!
The outdoor dining experience was a great way to end a busy day. Our server was delightful and made us all feel at home immediately. She willingly shared recommendations and they were spot on.
This place is awesome. The food and the service never ceases to amaze me. Having lunch with friends I haven’t seen very often was wonderful!! Almost forgot about Covid while I was dining in the back outside with the chickens and the puppies and the butterflies....
Food was fresh and delicious! I ordered the duck hash and my husband ordered the shrimp and grits. Both were fantastic. I also ordered the basil blueberry mojito. It was refreshing and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Make a reservation prior to arrival to lessen wait time. I cannot wait to go back!
Best Bloody Mary Ever! Awesome food, a different kind of menu, you'll love it.
Great food and service. Fun atmosphere in the backyard.
Always love Leaping Lizard! Consistently great food and service, and a fabulous outdoor area for dining!
+This was our 3rd visit to Leaping Lizard in a week and this time we were dining with some old friends who live in the area. As usual, the staff was fully aware of our reservation and requirement to sit outside in the patio. The evening was wonderful from the great drinks to the entrees and the desert. We had to leave Virginia Beach to return to New York but our friends will surely be back.
Lovely lunch! Excellent food, attentive staff and fun ambiance. We will go back!
We arrived 15 minutes for our 12:15 PM brunch. The hostess said that she would have the outside seating ready for us at 12:15 so we went to our car to wait. At 12:13 we walked over to the entrance and she looked up and called us by name and said that our table was ready. Very professional and appreciated. Our server was right there to take our order and the rest of the brunch was on time, extremely tasty and thoroughly satisfying. Great place to come for any meal you can imagine. We leave for home in 3 days but have dinner scheduled at the Lizard before we go. Don't miss this place. They honor your reservations and deliver on your choices while maintaining complete compliance with all COVID 19 precautions.
Had dinner outside, and it was so nice. Super great service and amazing dinner!
The place has a very wide eclectic menu. The physical building and grounds need some sprucing up to take it to another level. Service from our waitresses have been marginal for the last 3 visits. However, we love going there anyway.
The food was incredible, the service impeccable & the ambiance charming. Such a great place to unwind & enjoy a great meal. We’ll be going back for sure!
Wow, fantastic food, drink and people. The weather was perfect and we sat outside. Would recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
My wife and I were visiting Virginia Beach again and had never eaten at the Leaping Lizard. Since they advertised compliance with all COVID 19 rules and also provided outside seating, we tried them for lunch. In a word, it was marvelous. Everything from the Bloody Mary to the Chicken Sandwich and the Tuna Melt followed by the Bread Pudding was wonderful and memorable. A simple side of their version of potato salad made us both wonder whether we could find the recipe online. We are here for another week and the Leaping Lizard will see us again
Perfection! The food is one of a kind and leaves your mouth as happy as can be!
This is one of my favorite, and apparently everyone else's, place in Norfolk, VA. It's always packed but with a reservation, you get seated pretty quickly. Their capacity is down because of social distancing but the experience is still top notch. Never fails to please!
Once again, our experience was fabulous! Our meals were exceptional and the charm of the rain on the outdoor roof added even more to our evening. The freshness and quality of the food is superb and the value matches it. This marks about 5 visits in less than two months and their consistency is impressive!!
Never disappointed with the freshness, flavor and overall dining experience !! One of my top 3 favorite restaurant’s in VB.
It was awesome! Nothing bad to say. The food was delicious. The service was excellent.
Always a tasty meal! With the continued improvements they have made, I really enjoy the dining experience.
Cool ambience, great waitress and excellent food! Key lime pie was delicious!
Always the best food, relaxing environment. Gets busy fast so make reservations a day or 2 ahead. Limited parking.
Best crab cakes I’ve ever had - I’ve been around for 48 years and from the Gulf Coast.
Friday night date night with my husband… Just spectacular there. Very special place
Love this place! Every time! Food is amazing and service is great!
Love this restaurant! Food is always delicious and it has such a great, relaxing vibe and staff!
Lunch with friends. As with dinner at LL, food and service was excellent. Always impressed and continue to recommend to all our friends. Keep up the great work!
One of our favorite places. It’s a must go to restaurant
Leaping Lizard is our pandemic-friendly go to! amazing outdoor seating, appropriate table distances, respectful and masked staff. Not to mention the food is terrific!!
One of my favorite places to eat. We sat outside under the trees and the food was great, as usual. Service was excellent without being overdone.
They were wonderful in service and remembering to wish my little girl a happy birthday! Will be back soon!
I had a chicken pasta dish which has absolutely no flavor and the chicken tasted like they had boiled it. Sorry
Excellent place for birthday lunch with family!
Perfect place for a wonderful brunch!
