Mizuno Japanese Restaurant is a family-run business that first opened in 1996. Located in Virginia Beach, Mizuno is embedded in a seafood hotspot, only 25 miles south of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and 158 miles south of Hatteras, North Carolina. Chef-owner Wataru Mizuno feels blessed to be a sushi chef in a culinary trifecta like Virginia Beach. Mizuno and his team take advantage of the restaurant's access to local sources by artfully composing daily specials that feature fresh shrimp, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, flounder, blue crabs and oysters, to name a few. The hook's simple. Mizuno resists complicated sauces and excessive ingredients. Instead, he flavors scallops from the world famous Chesapeake Bay, adding nothing more, at times, than a dash of citrus and a pinch of sea salt. Wataru Mizuno: Chef/Owner Born in Japan, Wataru Mizuno received his formal training in Tokyo, as an apprentice under master Teruo Sato.

My dinner experience at Mizuno was outstanding. Without a doubt, Mizuno is one of my favorite restaurants in Virginia Beach.

Reserved 2 seats at the sushi bar for my wife’s birthday. We were later joined by 2 more and they had no problem accommodating us. Our server Julia was extremely helpful with the menu and very attentive. Japanese beer selection had the usual favorites and quite a selection! We were easily able to carry on a conversation between the four of us at and around the corner of the bar. The food was out of this world! Their fresh wasabi was a treat and all of the sushi and rolls were fresh and delicious. Also had the hot and sour soup which was a treat on a chilly night. As was the hot saki. Can’t wait to go back!
