    We were there in the late afternoon, after lunch & before Happy Hour & there were still two or more other tables occupied in this small place while we were there. My husband, not much of a salad guy, wants to go back for the kale salad, it was that fresh & wonderful! We also enjoyed the tuna bite nachos & hummus plate. We shared a new world and sweet wine flight as well. It was just enough and offered an opportunity to enjoy several wines, we found a couple to try when we return. We plan to go back and have the dessert fondue & some wine with a larger group. I have my eye on the lounge around the fire pit! Afterwards we enjoyed a harbor cruise just 10 minutes away, it was a wonderful pairing & how we celebrated our anniversary.

    Great food, especially the hot brie platter. Wonderful service from Nichelle! And it's not too loud inside, meaning you can actually have a conversation with friends. That's important to me as some places are just too loud to enjoy.

    I ordered a wine flight and I’ve never seen a flight with such skimpy pours! It was barely enough to taste the wine. We also ordered a charcuterie board and they filled it up with dried fruit on chips. There was ONE piece of salami and ONE piece of ham. The cheese offerings was as skimpy as the wine flight tasting. My takeaway was that the restaurant is in trouble and they’re trying to get by with as little as possible hoping you won’t notice. And, it won’t be because of the skimpy pours!

    My experience with Mermaid Winery is always top tier! This place is definitely a hidden gem in the heart of norfolk. Food was amazing, I had the Shrimp & Grits, sparkling wine flight, and a glass of Mermaid “Seduction” wine also. Everything was fantastic, ambiance was lovely, staff was kind and knowledgeable. Will be returning back!

    The food was quite good. However, the reliance on online menus accessed by QR scan is inconvenient, especially for senior citizens. Yes, the wine list is changeable and extensive, making printed lists a challenge, but to have to look at a huge array of choices in tiny print on one’s phone is kind of tacky. Also tacky was having NO Chardonnay available by the glass. You have to order a full bottle. What if the dinner wishes to have two glasses of wine (not the promoted flights), one white to start, and a red with the meal? And yes, you can take the unfinished bottle home, but what if you don’t want the rest of it? Service was a bit slow but these days we cut the staff some slack because of the employment situation generally. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    I booked reservation to have lunch outside, and when I arrived there was no staff to find anywhere. When I was finally greeted I was told to sit wherever. Ok we did and did not receive any menus. When the waiter came to our table to order he said are you ready to order, well we don't have menus. He then brought us a menu to scan. We wanted to do a flight and those are not listed on the menu, so he told us the flights however didn't explain anything. My friend ordered a flight they didn't have any more printed cards for so he hand wrote the names on hers with no information. The flights were delivered with dirty glass holders. The rod iron base was dusty, had dried food, and I don't know what else. I brought this to the servers attention and he did change it out, but I could not believe it. We were a little worried to order food, but we decided to stick to a charcuterie board, however they were out of a lot of options. This is just unacceptable for a winery. Wine and cheese boards kinda go hand and hand. The outside space is really nice, but they are under staffed and clients were not staying long. It's a shame we used to love to come here. It has definitely gone down hill.

    I had visited the Virginia Beach restaurant on several occasions and was looking forward to a meal and wine before an event in Norfolk. The waitress knew nothing about wine and the food was mediocre. Such a disappointment!

    Food and wine were delicious but service was definitely lacking- it took over 15 minutes for someone to come to our table after we were seated and then another 15-20 minutes to get the wine we ordered. At the end of the meal (about 9:15) we were pressured to wrap up and leave (to include turning the music off in the restaurant) despite them not closing until 10 Not sure if I’ll be back

    Major props to Mermaid Winery for being willing to seat two people outdoors at night in January. Temperature was 29/30F. They had a cabana with fire and a wind shield. It was lovely. The food was great, as always. Outdoor music was very loud, likely because no one in their right mind eats outdoors below freezing. Would do again.
