We go to Orion’s about once a month. I love the setting, appetizers and sushi. They also have some good entrees.

I was a little disappointed as my husband and I were celebrating our birthdays. We had to wait 20 min for our table and then squeezed in between two other parties in a half long booth and table seating arrangement. For a special occasion I assumed we would be seated at a more private table. The second strike was our birthday dessert was fully charged to us on our bill.

I guess I shouldn’t make assumptions, but for a dual birthday celebration it certainly didn’t feel special. We go out often and truly like Orion’s, but would’ve went elsewhere for dinner if I knew we’d be sitting right on top of people for a date night away from our kids.

My husband and I came for a date night. The food was reasonably priced with perfect portions, interesting and flavorful options, high-quality sashimi and sushi, and stellar service. We’re in our 30s but look very young and don’t wear designer clothes. I felt a little out of place among the Virginia Beach elite around us…yet the hostess and waitstaff made us feel like their premier guests and didn’t rush us through our meal, even though we were there late. Phenomenal service, atmosphere, and food!

I made reservations for my fiancés birthday and requested a window seat over 2 weeks in advance. When we arrived they did not have any window seats available. Our server delivered our drinks then took almost 30 minutes to take our food order. All the tables around me were upset. Food was good and atmosphere was good. Overall very disappointed.

View is amazing. Wait staff very good. Food took quite a bit of time to come out and when it did it was very mediocre. Sushi was amazing. Otherwise not much to say ….. but beautiful view.

A great experience overlooking the beach and boardwalk at Virginia Beach.
The restaurant features a wide variety of quality options on the menu. Remember to request a window seat.

Our food took longer than normal. The atmosphere was loud so we found ourselves being loud in order to be able to hear each other. Our waitress was frequently missing so had to ask others walking by for items. It was a very long wait between order drinks and appetizers to then ordering food. While it may have been busy the other waitresses and waiters in the area seemed more attentive to their tables. I literally thanked our waitress for coming back when she finally made it back. I had also put that it was my birthday and got no mention of a birthday celebration or anything as they've done for others in the past.

Great place to go for a wonderful dining experience. The ambience is the best with greatest views of the beach. The staff does an excellent job, fun, energetic and knowledgeable .
We started with the pot stickers, tasty appetizers. Joined with a 5 spice daiquiri and the coldest draft beer at the beach!
Lunch was a tuna sashimi salad, with great slices of fresh tuna and the Pad Thai, just spiced perfectly.
We topped it off with their fuji apple dessert, a must have!
Go and enjoy yourselves, bring a few friends.

The usual great visit. It was nice to Noel. He runs a tight ship and always stops by to say hi. Sean gave us the usual great service and went over and above to get us our favorite wine. The food here is always delicious. However, we wish you would bring back the Bento box. Thanks for a great experience in our anniversary.

Disappointing experience. Spectacular views, service was good, but food quality was poor. Dumplings were chewy, Miso Soup was cold, main course was bland, Pad Thai was not good, desert was overly sweet, Cocktail was not right, had to be sent back to re-do it.

Over all it was ok. The environment was nice, view incredible, value for service/food sub par. For a party of 4, basic 2 drinks, 1 app each, 1 special, 1 entree and 2 sushi orders, 2 desserts, a total over $500 after gratuity is nuts when those same meals, quality and presentation, can be found elsewhere. (Jeans and button down plaid shirts are hardly a uniform for that ticket price either.) Nothing wowed me about this place, not likely to return.

On top of that, we had gift cards for Gold Key and while the website clearly listed this restaruant as a qualifying restaurant to use the gift cards, we were unable due to an issue between Gold Key and Orions Roof…. Not our problem, but clearly that didn’t matter, we were unable to use them. Disappointed in that handling!

Awesome view this time with a window seat compared last time. We were one of the first to dine for lunch. The kitchen may seem to take a while to bring out your food but the view compensates for it.

We came here for a special birthday dinner. You're definitely paying for the view, which is amazing, and the ambience, which was very classy. The food was very good, but in some cases not worth the expense. Service was slow, I'm guessing because of staffing issues, so I don't hold that against them. My main complaint was that we were a party of five, crammed at a table that was probably meant for three. We did have a nice view because of where we were seated though. We might do it again for another special occasion, but no one in our party is dying to go back there soon.

Views are awesome, decor beautiful and very upscale vibe. Great bar area too. Food is unique and good to very good, but not great and portions are small. Most options are Asian cuisine or american cuisine done with an Asian twist which I like/enjoyed. Menu is expensive, but you are paying for the experience too.
