Leaping Lizard Cafe

Fresh Tuna Salad Wrap
With provolone cheese, lettuce and tomato.
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!
Best crab quiche I have ever had. What makes this place so charming is the backyard dining near the chicken coup and all the eclectic art and gardens . Our service was outstanding and our big Lab Bullitt loved it especially when they bought him a bowl of ice and water. His fav. Going to make this my Sunday morning walk and brunch stop with my boys.
Wonderful food and service!
We really can’t say enough about our dinner.... 1st dinner here since covid and what a treat!!! Filet mignon was perfect and the sides were fresh and amazing. My crab cakes were fabulous and the veggies and our fave house salad with homemade made dressing puta our “highest end” hotel restaurants to shame!! Extensive wine list and fresh cocktails plus homemade desserts and top notch service will have us back routinely!! If you haven’t been... you’re missing out!! ❤️
So charming! Lovely back garden seating alongside the resident ducks and chickens (who we were assured were NOT the ducks and chickens in the menu). Food was terrific; nice smallish menu and an innovative array of desserts.
We ate outside and it was so beautiful under the trees. A real treat. Our food was amazing as always. We started with the hummus platter. We loved the dinner specials and our kids always want multiple desserts. Our server was so friendly and very professional.
Great outdoor patio seating with plenty of shade. Food and service were excellent.
Great place to catch up with friend and enjoy fabulous food!
Took our Anniversary Dinner at LL's. Great place and cool setting. Service was superb and meals were excellent!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Virginia Beach. The food is always fresh imaginative and delicious. However, their bread pudding is just not good. It consists of several slices of dry tough bread with some sweet topping and ice cream. It is not a moist pudding consistency that is traditional bread pudding. No one at our table liked it and they should probably mention that it is so different to patrons. Everything else is wonderful but feedback on items like this dessert should be helpful to the kitchen. We will of course be back.
All around reputable restaurant experience. My only complaint is dogs are allowed in the eating area outside (why?) and there were two tables next to me, both with large dogs who were continually being disciplined by their owners due to barking, whining and restlessness. Not enjoyable.
Come here every year when we’re at the beach. New item on the menu-blackened salmon mac and cheese was delicious. Great mixed drinks and impressive dessert list. Our server was outstanding and never had to write anything down.... 10 people in our group too! Highly recommended.
Great outdoor seating.....pending decent weather...
Porch is covered and a great alternative.
In the trees with excellent garden ambiance.
Very enjoyable dinner-good food, good atmosphere good service. Will definitely return
