Excellent all around service and food. Salads were terrific, as were crabcakes and fish entrees
Worst meal, and service. It’s always been so good. Hope it was just a bad night. Probably won’t go back to find out
Embarrassing to take the Mother’s in my family for a Mother’s Day meal. Food below average with a waitress that needs to find a new profession. Thanks for nothing. Oh, and you’ve gained the title for worst shecrab soup in Tidewater.
Great Food, great waiting staff, nice outdoor setting, cozy and quiet.
I sent all of my family to this restaurant for Mother's Day. The experience was great. My whole family loved the food. The location was great and the ambiance was amazing.
Excellent spot for family dining.
Great place for brunch. Had a good crowd on Mother’s Day.
As always, the food was excellent and the service impeccable. We love the pairing of foods that we normally don't think of as going together. There's always something new to try on the menu, and it's always wonderful.
Charming, casual but classy atmosphere. I bring out of town visitors here for a guaranteed interesting menu and delicious meal.
We love The Landing because the food is great, they source locally, have seasonal foods on their menu and it is close to home. We have never been disappointed there and we highly recommend it!
a little disappointed with the menu, missing our favorites, clams and pork belly tacos off the starter menu. bring them back, please.
She Crab soup was. Not warm until they microwaved it. Potatoes under the stuffed flounder were not very warm. I expect much more for the prices they charge.
Delicious food, good wine, and excellent service!
Went for dinner to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. Everything was excellent. Great service, good drinks, timely arrival of food. The rock fish was grilled to perfection, moist and delicious with lump crab, risotto, and sauces. Salmon was also delicious. Dessert was an amazing pineapple bread pudding with coconut sauce. Menu may be pricey for some, but well worth it. About $55 per person including drinks and dessert.
Great place. Love the service and the food is amazing. It’s a great place to do fine dinning and to get amazing food in a comfortable and casual atmosphere.
Easter brunch. Expected a brunch ( buffet). Service started slow (watching later determined the waiter also had tables outside so looked like management had spread him a little thin) but the food made up for everything.
Our experience was a bit mixed. The service was quite slow. We very much enjoyed the appetizers (duck stew and charcuterie board), but my beef was not cooled to the temperature I requested and my husband's scallops were fine, but not great. Additionally, I question why they continued to seat people on either side of us when there were other open tables. I'm on crutches and it made it a bit cramped, not to mention less private. Probably will not return soon.
This was a birthday celebration. The food tasted wonderful! Our server was attentive. It was a little noisy, but it was very casual. We opted to take the drive to get here (over 25 miles). Not sorry at all. It is hard to find places with such good flavors that try not to be really exotic. I had the crab-stuffed flounder and my husband had the NY strip which was on special. Both of us totally enjoyed our food. They were cooked perfectly. Everything was top-notch. This is a great place for special occasions.
family and friends met at the landing for dinner and we all had a great time. the food was very good, especially the salmon! Our server Kim was very friendly and helpful. was a bit loud in there but not a problem. you probably need a reservation...all tables were full.
My wife and I had the haddock special and it was excellent although a bit pricey at $36 per entree. The price point given the quality of the food would be appropriate if the restaurant didn’t have the feel of one if the mid priced chain restaurants. Overall the food way outshines the ambiance. Any seat on the left side (away from the bar) will have have somebody looking into the service entrance to the kitchen. The food quality is clearly a strength but there are many other restaurants in Virginia Beach that have equal quality but offer some ambiance at equal or lower prices.
Best oysters I’ve ever had!! Honestly everything was good! Will definitely be back
Terrific place with a homey atmosphere. The service is great and the food is delicious!
Outstanding experience. We happened to go during restaurant week and had an amazing three-course dinner. Service was on-point, and the manager came over to check on us. The dinner was fantastic. Lobster bisque was perfect - not just loaded with heavy cream. We had the seared scallops and sweet potato encrusted salmon. Both we would get again in a heartbeat. I had the bread pudding for dessert, which was also delicious. Again, impressive meal all around and great service. So happy we decided to go.
Creative menu. Everything is delicious. Unique selections.
Was really surprised and disappointed by this restaurant. There is no atmosphere or ambience... it was pretty dead the night we were there but I was told it can get loud. The waitress was very good. The food was hot... the 1st course was fried shrimp and they were pretty good not Steinhiblers quality but good. The salmon was good and there was a sauce on the plate which was tasty. The small bit of spinach was good but could have been more of it and then there was a hugh amount of an unidentifiable starch, which was lumpy and tasteless. My husband thought it was potatoes... dessert was a lemon something cake which was not memorable...
Food is fabulous. This is one of my top favorite resterants in Virginia Beach. If it were closer to my house it would be my favorite by far!
Some meals are a bit high priced but food is good. Been many times but last visit it was so dark for 6 pm dinner we could hardly see the menus.
Always our favorite, go-to dinner spot!
We love the Landing - definitely our go to spot for a special date night.
I was very excited to try this restaurant because I heard good reviews, However, I met worst waiter and he ruined our girls night out.
He showed irritation toward us because one of hour guest showed up hour late of reservation time, and told us usually guests not stay two hours and because she was late they had to push our time 5:30 to 8pm, means extended 30 min. I did not know Restaurant policy but I would understand and be pleased if he explained nicely! He was very rude, gave us pressure to order, and eat and leave..
He did not deserve any tips, he was so fake as a waiter. Because of this reason, we had a very bad impression of this restaurant. I hope they hire better waiter.
Food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Our waiter, Chris was great and made great suggestions. The hostess was a mess. We had reservations and were shuttled around three times because our table wasnt ready. After telling us we could go the bar, she came back and told us we couldnt sit at a table next to the bar, then several minutes later told me that our table was ready and while I paid the bartender, she came back and over explained why she couldn't give us the table after all. Another several minutes and she finally seated us a half hour after our reservation. Again, food was amazing and we will be back. Just not on a holiday.
At booking I was asked to provide a credit card to hold my reservation since it was for Valentine's Day, which I didn't have a problem with. My problem was being told after I had given them my credit card number that if I cancelled it was a 150.00 cancellation fee and there was a preset 4 course meal, but the menu was not provided. First I ordered a Malibu and pineapple juice, they were out of rum. For my first course I ordered the she crab soup, it was too thick for my liking, I told the waiter I didn't like it, he picked up my bowl, headed to the kitchen, came out of the kitchen and walked pass me numerous of times without saying a word. My friend finally called him and asked if I could get a salad in place of the soup, he said he would ask his manager. I guess he said yes because they brought me a salad, which was good. My second course was fried shrimp, that was good. I was happy to see lamb chops on the menu for the third course, but that was sold out and it's only 6:30, so I ordered the steak. We sat there for 30 minutes waiting on our food while people who had came after us had their food. So I called the waiter and asked about our order and he said it was coming out. Then he comes back and tells us the kitchen had lost our ticket, and offered us a drink while we waited. My food came out cold, so I told him to just bag it up to go. My friend had the duck, I wish I had taken a picture of it, he said it tasted like it came out of a can. For the fourth course I had the cheese cake to go, which I didn't like at all, my friend had a brownie which he said was ok. We were there for 2 hours and not once did our waiter offer to fill our water glasses. He was very engaging to the tables beside us. We left there and went to Dairy Queen and had chilli dogs, best meal of the night. So basically we wasted our time and 200.00. I would never go to the Landing again.
Overall a great experience! The appetizer took a while to be served and the waitress seemed busy. However, she was very knowledgeable and very nice. The food was great and the bourbon and wine lists were impressive. We will definitely come back and bring friends.
Awful brunch. I went to the restaurant after it was recommended by a friend. We were so disappointed. We ordered steak bites and pork belly tacos for appetizers. The steak bites were unimpressive - no char on the outside...just grey meat. The tacos on the other hand were very good. We had 3 salads ordered and one seafood omelette. One salad was to come without dressing and the other without dressing or croutons. Both came with dressing and croutons. That wouldn't be so bad, but the salads were doused in dressing. The chicken on the caesar was so salty it made you cringe. The 3rd salad was ok. The omelette was nothing exciting and lacked flavor, although the tator tots that came with it were very good. Overall I was VERY disappointed considering I heard such good things. Perhaps dinner is better?? Based on this experience though, I won't be going back and neither will our friends.
Everything was excellent. Good variety on the menu, lots of choices. I had the fried green tomatoes which were a little harder than I would have liked, but they are not in season either. The salmon was very good and the risotto that came with the salmon was outstanding.
Food terrific! Service terrific! Enjoyed it very much.
Only issue is it can get loud. Music was loud but when we asked for it to be turned down, it was. Thanks for that!
As always the food was beyond excellent. We started with the scallop appetizer with literally melted in my mouth. Then we had the Sweet Potato Salmon and Crub stuffed Flounder and both were amazing.
Everyone is happy and neighborly. Larry provided excellent service. Meal was great!!!
Ordered the Rockfish Special, Filet Mignon Oscar, the Duck, and the new Southern Fried Chicken! WE LOVED EVERY BITE!
Great food and Sam is awesome. Our only complaint every visit is when mashed potatoes come with our meal they are from day one never hot.
