Great food and service!!
My all time favorite place to go! The food, service and atmosphere is amazing. Reasonable prices
Terrific food and service! Great desserts too! Had the tuna- highly recommended
Wonderful dinner. Outstanding seafood! Lump Crab Cakes were as advertised: plenty of lump crab and no filler. Superb!!!! Oysters Rockefeller was the best I have ever had. Five people in our party and everyone was thrilled with their food. Great service and a view on the Inlet made for a very special dinner.
I’ve been to Rockafeller’s several times and have never been disappointed. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, our food was delicious, I personally don’t like oysters but the rest of the family loved them. The views are beautiful and the restaurant is busy, but not overwhelming or loud. They have valet parking for dinner which is amazing - they didn’t have it for brunch but we had no problem finding parking. Can’t wait to come back again!
We were in with a large party and were taken care of promptly and everyone loved their experience!
My husband, myself and my two kids came to check out, what seemed to be, a good choice of restaurants. The restaurant itself was not too bad at first, I wish we could have experienced the food as the menu looked good, but unfortunately we had to cancel and leave before we even received our food. We were simply appalled by how RUDE our waiter was, we felt like we weren't welcome, and he seemed overly annoyed that we were even there. The complete opposite of customer service. We became so uncomfortable, we had to leave.
I hope this doesn't represent the entire restaurant, the other staff seemed like they were nice. Wish we could have experienced the food.
My review reflects only this evenings experience. We've been here before & had a much better experience so we will definitely forgive one so-so evening. Our problem was our waiter. He was nice enough & his food service was efficient, he just had no connection to us. He seemed curt, almost to the point of rudeness, humorless & completely distracted, always looking around the restaurant while we talked to him. And then he seemed to be rushing us at every stage. It wasn't a busy night & there were plenty of empty tables and we were several hours away from closing but we all felt extremely rushed along & it was very uncomfortable for all in our party. Don't worry, we'll be back ... we'll just hope he's not our waiter!
Food quality was not good, very disappointed in mahi with risotto. Bland and fish was dry.
The view was awesome. It was nice to be able to look out over the water and see all the boats out in the marina.
The food was delicious. I had the shrimp and crab quesadillas and hush puppies.
The waitress was really nice , but I feel the wait was rather long for the food and the check.
Fantastic Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster and more! Wait staff are excellent and very accommodating! Highly recommend!
Great food and service.
Overall mixed feelings; food was good but server was blunted in personality and nonengaged with process.
We ate lunch outside on a little balcony overlooking boat slips for charter fishing and SUP rentals--very casual. The kitchen was very slow but we were in no hurry and our server kept in constant touch with us and gave us both a free additional appetizer due to the long delay. We'll go back and hopefully be lucky again to be one of the few diners taking advantage of the small outdoor balcony.
Great food. Great view.
Absolutely wonderful meal start to finish. The crab cakes and bbq shrimp were standouts but every single thing we ordered was top notch.
Crabcakes, need attention. Super bland. Oysters rock, they loved it. Same with the crab dip, delicious. We also each enjoyed our meals, I especially liked the barbecue shrimp, and hush puppies. Was definitely a little loud, couldn’t really hear well even at a table of six
We went for Early Bird Special and it was great. Food was excellent and a great value for $14.99. Salad, entrée, and dessert. We got to watch boats in the inlet. Staff was friendly and attentive. I have already recommended to a friend who is going to VA Beach.
Great food. We were with a large group, so it was hard to tell about the service. The Blood Mary's were amazing too!
Wonderful evening for our daughter’s 19th birthday! We requested a view through open table and the restaurant delivered! We had an awesome table and our server Andrew was great! The food and cocktails were fabulous as well. We felt so welcomed by everyone we encountered. Now our other daughter wants to come back next month when she turns 12. Can’t wait to be back.
Best crab cakes ever had! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Outdoor dining was not available.
Hostess did not know about reservations made through open table.
Hostess sat us at a high top bar table stuck in the corner and we had to request to move, even though we had asked for a window seat, another party was seated before us.
They seem very disorganized.
The food was good.
It was our anniversary as we stated in our open table reservation and the restaurant never even acknowledged it.
Arrived about 5:30 pm. No crowd at all. Appetizers showed up and we barely finished them and the entrees we're there instantly. Kinda hurried. Mahi mahi was dry, bacon wrapped shrimp had a minscule amount of bacon. Been better in the past.
I paid more for better food and this outing didn't = value.
They had an unfortunate incident where someone knocked over a 15 top tray of food and they had to remake all of that food. This pushed the kitchen back in an already busy night. However, they closed to new seatings at 9pm to focus on giving the best service to those already there. They gave us a free appetizer due to the wait and they did recover rather quickly getting the food out.
The food was wonderful and the servers were working extremely hard to make the experience the best it could be. The wait was not as long as some other restaurants who don’t even have an excuse.
I think they not only prepared wonderful food and great service, they handled a terrible situation with dignity and great concern for their customers.
I will definitely go back.
This was the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. 8:00 reservation for party of 3, seated at 8:45, order placed at 9:00, walked out at 9:45 when appetizer hadn’t even arrived - and it wasn’t just our table. Several others walked out before us. We told the server to cancel the order and the manager said we didn’t owe anything, but only gave a half-hearted apology about being “slammed.”
DO NOT go here!
We made a reservation for 8pm and we did not get seated until close to 9. We waited almost an hour for our appetizer and then food was brought to table shortly after 10.
We loved our meal so much, and the valet parking was a plus. Because it was a vacation weekend, the restaurant was pretty noisy but tolerable, we did wait longer than we should have for our dinner to arrive due to the crowd.
I would not return. Food was mediocre
Our first time eating there. Food experience was satisfactory. Service...host was not pleasant and very short when asked if a table was available by the window. Server was ill informed about menu selections and just not welcoming. Valet parking was not needed at the specific time we arrived and I felt forced into that therefore forced to tip.
Long wait times. Drinks half full. Dirty bathrooms. You ask the waitress what she recommends and she says, "leaving". THIS IS NOT ROCKAFELLER'S! I've eaten at Rockafeller's at least a dozen times. They have yet to disappoint. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food - from the appetizer to the main course is scrumptious! Nice, clean, friendly environment with a reasonably priced menu. Highly recommend the calamari as an appetizer. You cannot go wrong with the jumbo lump crab cakes. As the name suggests - there is a substantial amount of crab in the crab cakes. My go-to when friends are in town from 'up north' or the 'mid-west'. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Oh yeah, dessert? I'm into fitness... fitness this whole slice of rum cake in my mouth!
Water view dining was so nice. Perfect amount of attention from our server and the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend.
Great place and food is awesome
A friend and I went there, as we were vacationing there for a few days. Heard it was a great place to visit. My girlfriend ordered a Alfredo pasta dish without mushrooms but there they were in her plate. I ordered the salmon dish and there was a ton of black pepper on it top to bottom, yuck! I'm allergic to black pepper so I too returned my dish. We stayed there much longer and didn't get compensated for our troubles. The food was good but the service- eh not so much.
Andrew was a great server! Excellent food specials and great service as always
We have enjoyed eating here for many years while on vacation at VA Beach. The food is always consistently Excellent and the Barbeque Shrimp is the Bomb! Staff is always friendly and love the water view!
Everything was awesome!!!! Friendly staff and great food!!!!
Great value and great food. Will definitely return!
Down here on vacation and will make this a regular stop when I’m here. Christopher our server was awesome. He made fantastic recommendations. I had the BBQ shrimp and my mother had the crab Norfolk. Amazing dinner!!!
For a great dinner and a ver enjoyable night go and have fun. Bill h falls Church va
The best food and best service ever. It was a little noisy though but all in all spectacular visit for the first time. Will be back!
