About the restaurant
AAA Four Diamond restaurant located at the Virginia Beach oceanfront, Zoës originally opened in 2003, and re-opened under new ownership on March 16, 2009. Renowned sommelier Marc Sauter, as well as devoted restaurant goers Bill and Joni Greene, to continue the Zoës legacy with the same great location, friendly staff, soothing ambience, and award-winning food and spirits.

Together, their hope is to offer their guests a wonderful dining experience that has a comfortable, familiar atmosphere, yet that special touch of class that makes Zoës “the place to go when you absolutely must impress your guests.”

Our server Tyler was very helpful and attentive to us. We ordered an array of sushi which was fresh, tasty with lovely nuances of texture. It is the best sushi we’ve had in the area. The General Manager, DeeJay, thank us for coming, chatting with us for several minutes about the new sous chef and new changes coming to Orion. He and the entire team were very hospitable. And the view. Stunning!
