Terrapin never disappoints, delicious food, incredible service. We asked about two desserts and ordered one. They brought us both to try no extra charge. Wonderful experience as always.
Som of the food was best of class, the pork chop was undercooked :(
Dessert was amazingly
Terrapin was a great find! We had the four-course tasting menu and the sommelier wine pairing. Both the food and the wine were exquisite. I had the beets, risotto, scallops and chocolate elegance. The food tasted fresh, with layered, complex flavors. The dessert was out of this world in overall taste, presentation, and flavor combinations. My husband, who likes spicier food, had the Autumn soup, calamari, halibut and autumn crumble. It was all excellent, but he is still especially raving about the calamari with the dipping sauce. The wine pairings were spot on and brought out the best in each dish.
We can’t wait to visit again and try more of the menu. Also, while we were dressed up for a birthday dinner, the other patrons were a mix of dressy and nice casual. So, it is not just a “Special Occasion “ place. Service was very attentive but not intrusive.
Came here with my wife for our first wedding anniversary while we were visiting Virginia Beach, and it was a great experience. The menu had been pre-printed with a "Happy anniversary Mr. and Mrs. ....." on the top which was a nice touch. The server was a little awkward, but perhaps being a slower Sunday night, the regular flow of dinner was just different. The food was delicious and we ended up sharing the short rib pasta and halibut because both items were really well prepared with a lot of great flavors. They had live music outside near where we sat, but it was just a single guitarist who's level was pleasant enough to be able to talk to each and enjoy the music. The prices are a little high, but the food really does live up to it, and the atmosphere is a little fancy, but not over the top. All in all I would recommend Terrapin and would go back if I'm in the Virginia Beach area.
Classy restaurant with excellent personalized service. Food was exquisite and beautifully presented. Can't thing of any place at the beach that offers this type of experience.
We love Terrapin! It's our favorite in Virginia Beach!
Terrapin is quickly becoming one of our few favorite restaurants in the Virginia Beach. The service is excellent (they always remember you and take good notes), the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is relaxing.
This was a great place. The food was good. The wait staff worked well together.
Second trip and as with the first simply OUTSTANDING! Highly recommend this spot for that very special night with a special someone or just for a really good meal.
The tasting menu was excellent, it had a variety of foods. Serve was excellent. The noise level was on the high side.
We started with a cocktail - excellent. The cauliflower appetizer -was unique and delicious. Pappardalle pasta with shortrib ragu housemade and the duck was absolutely perfect and tender. Bottle of Zweigelt was great with the food and moderately priced. Gelato for dessert topped off an excellent meal!!!
Excellent food and presentation.Staff couldn't be better, but the dishes were horribly
The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was eye appealing and very tasteful. Service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this to all our friends
Our waitress was awesome! They went above and beyond for my boyfriends birthday, which we didn't even mention at first, still they caught on and did a lil extra something to celebrate with us. It was a very classy touch. We will be returning.
We started early (at 6pm) and left around 8pm. The early crowd was light and quiet. As the evening went on, more patrons showed up, the restaurant filled, and the noise level rose (as expected). The service was outstanding.
