I have visited the Norfolk location on numerous occassion. Decided to try this location for "Date Night". Let me just say that he customer service from the beginning to the end was OUTSTANDING. Our waitress, Sam, she gave us the VIP treatment making us feel as if we were the only customer in her area. We will be visiting again soon. Thanks for an unforgettable evening.
Great food. Poor service from our server Thomas. Inattentive. Took a long time to even get our appetizer order, let alone our dinner order or dessert. Not responsive to the fact that we had our 7yr old daughter with us. We just moved to VA Beach and wanted to go out for our anniversary but didn’t have a sitter so we took her with us for a family celebration dinner. But idea for this location. Will not return. Loud, techno, unfitting music. Poor service.
Met some girlfriends for lunch and enjoyed it! The grilled cheese sandwich was delicious. I had the wine flight and enjoyed 4 out of the 6 but felt it was a little pricey. Declined the glass that was supposed to be included with my sandwich and was told I would get $4 taken off of my bill but that did not happen. Besides that it was a nice experience and I will definitely return.
Great food, wine and service. Love the atmosphere and location.
We really enjoyed our experience at Mermaid Winery. Went there while om a girls’s trip, had a blast. Service was great, wine tasting was fun, food was amazing. Love this place! Wish we lived closer. Will definitely be back.
Helpful bartender, but wine flights could be improved.
Being our first time at Mermaid Winery we were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the overall experience. Our server (Alex) was top notch, and made our anniversary dinner specially memorable. Food was better than expected and the wine selection is fantastic.
The only negative comment was the reservation request to sit outside that could not be honored because of an event A call should have been made to let me know since that was the main reason we selected the winery experience. Yet everything worked out very well thanks to Alex. Will definitely return, regardless if outside seating is not available.
Recommend updating the pictures... the current ones don’t quite capture the wonderful feel of the place.
We dined with a friend and enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits dinner. It was a lovely evening and we enjoyed the wine that we ordered. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive.
This is a delightful restaurant. My wife and I often with friends have wined and dined inside. This past Saturday was the first time we dined alfresco. Wonderful experience. Easily the best restaurant on Shore Drive!
Four of us met for lunch. The service was outstanding and the food was good. Can't comment on the wine as we all had iced tea. It's a friendly atmosphere and a nice place for a leisurely lunch.
I loved our Server Jac!
Venue was well done. Outdoor space beautiful but on a busy highway right next to a car wash. Their own Mermaid Chardonnay was wonderful as were the appetizers we selected. We would go again but would sit inside.
Out of mushrooms and oysters, but otherwise great. I surprised my gf for her birthday, and she loved it!
We enjoyed visiting Mermaid Winery with our friends on a Friday evening. The menu had a lot of variety and the wine selection was plentiful. The food - most temperature, portion size and presentation was somewhat disappointing because I did experience it during previous visits. So, this might have been a one-off.
Food was very good but service is slow. Wines were interesting and there were many choices.
Food and wine were wonderful. We liked the wine so much that we bought three bottles to take home with us. Service was slow - they were busy on a Saturday evening. It was very noisy - we had trouble carrying on a conversation. Ambiance is designed to appeal to a young beach crowd, not what we expected.
I am from Ohio and my boyfriend and I tried this winery last year when we were in VA visiting my uncle. Everything was so good that we made it a point to stop again this year. We're also bringing back two bottles of their Chardonnay that I loved. Can't wait to be back next year!
Went with another couple who had dined at Mermaid Winery before for dinner... Was our first. The staff is wonderful! The wine steward... I think his name was Joshua was so cordial and informative. Our server, I think her name was Melissa or Michelle was OUTSTANDING!! Very sweet and attentive but not hovering. The wine was good and the food was ok... I ordered the shrimp and grits... it was like no other I've ever had. I believe it must have been black rice with squid ink sauce??? Plenty of shrimp but it was waaaaaaaay too salty for my taste. My husband and one other of our guests ordered the shrimp tacos... said they were ok but not memorable... Sorry .... WE like the restaurant and will come again ...just order something different! Thank you, Linda
Four of us met for lunch at the Mermaid Winery. It's a comfortable place for lunch, quiet enough that we could have a lovely conversation. The food choices were good and the light lunches come with a glass of wine. The grilled tuna sandwich was very good. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Try it!
Great wine selection and fantastic food! Went for our anniversary and we will be back!
Service staff is very knowledgeable. The portion sizes were huge and the food tasted amazing!
We dined on the covered patio which was delightful--fresh industrial chic. The presentation and themes of the wine flights and food offerings were wonderful and fun. Two of our meals out of 3 were outstanding; in the risotto, salt seemed to be the predominate flavor and the vegetables were a bit sparse. The curious flaw in our experience was the service. The servers were knowledgeable and personable. However, it took a long time to get one glass of wine. Also, the tables weren't bused right away. Tables with leavings from previous diners stayed that way throughout our meal, and a table beside us wasn't cleared after the diners left. This evidence of lack of attention affected my otherwise favorable opinion of this distinctive restaurant.
Hard to find wine of this caliber in Virginia Beach. Bison burger was phenomenal, as well.
Excellent service! Our waitress was so friendly and accommodating to our daughters. The food and wine were amazing, we’ll definitely be back.
Mediocre and wouldn't make a second visit. The wines and food were just ok, but over priced for what you actually got. Staff was nice and friendly, service was relatively quick but again, overall was mediocre
We've been here several times and the experience is always top notch. Jameson is awesome!
Took my mom here for Mother’s Day brunch and we had a great time with yummy food and wine!
Great food, great wine selection and the wine flights are well-constricted. The service was great too.
Really good food and the wine choices are exceptional.
Food and service by Nick was fantastic. We found a great bottle of wine and it was 1/2 bottle night. My salmon was cooked as ordered and delicious. Our group shared the carrot cake for dessert. It was plenty for the three of us and was one of the best desserts I have had lately.
My only concern was that the valet attendant had pulled my car out for someone else by mistake. I found that a little disturbing but it would not stop me from valeting my car again if necessary.
Wow only 2000 charecters not even enough to describe how enjoyable my meal was. I grew up on a massive cattle ranch and have been all over the world and the steak i had was in my top 3 best steaks i have ever eaten. The meals presentation, texture, taste, and pairing was all amazing, fun, and enjoyable. I was very please with everything from the meal to the amazinglt helpful and friendly staff.
Gorgeous atmosphere, great service and the food is delicious! The bartender we had the 1st time my ginger half and I sat at the bar was extremely knowledgeable on all things wine which is exactly what you need for a winery. I can't remember his name but thinner frame, handkerchief or something of the like around his neck...great, great service! And then my family and I went for Easter, table of 5, and again, great times, service and food. We will be back!
Our waiter was amazing he was very polite and understanding I would definitely come back and eat again we even bought a bottle of wine as well
The entire experience was phenomenal. We will definitely be back!
Service was really slow 3 hours start to finish. When blackened tuna finally arrived luke warm. Flavors great just almost cold. All dinners not served at same time (we were party of four. ) Dessert took another 20 min. Waiter said they were “dismantling carrot cake”. Delicious but we were tired of waiting
Waitress and service were excellent but the food was blah. We sampled many things and were not crazy about anything. Go for the wine & service but not the food. (Avoid the mussels. They were a mess. Fragments and splinters of shells throughout the dish. Half the mussels were not even open. Calamari was like rubber. etc.)
Hey there, I am terribly sorry to hear that your dining experience fell short. We strive to provide the best in food, wine, and service, and it seems we have not lived up to the former in this circumstance. However, your feedback is critically useful in helping us identify ways in which we can improve the Mermaid experience; for this we are grateful! We host free tastings every Friday from 5 PM to 8 PM - As you enjoyed our wines, I invite you to join us! We hope you will give us another go!
Spent more money than for a comparable dinner in a nice restaurant by $48. The appetizers were fairly priced, but the main entrees were priced the same as the Barn Rest but about half the amount of food. Overall the service was great, Jamison was a great waiter. The appetizer, shrimp and calamari with lettuce wraps was awesome. My bride had the Grilled Cheese and I had the duck. Both were out of this world. The wine we purchased was Passidon Red that to was excellent. Took part of the bottle home.
Enjoying that as I write this, Look forward to going back again. Nice that they took reservations and that they have valet parking. Drove up to the door and we were seated at arrival. What I would call a dinning experience.
Tasty food, lots of variety, comfortable space, attentive staff, and great service
