The food is fantastic. If you enjoy Italian fare you will love Zia Marie's. In general, the ambiance is OK...I liked the low lighting. Unfortunately, the restaurant is very noisy. It was almost impossible to have a conversation with my date. We had a 6pm reservation on a Saturday and the place was about 75% of capacity while we were there. The only other drawback was that they had run out of Italian sausage...what Italian restaurant runs out of Italian sausage early on a Saturday evening? More

Prereserved, but they had a 5-top that they had us shoehorn 6 into or we'd have to wait a lot longer. Had to keep reminding the waitress we needed the last setup since the table was set for 5 not 6. Also made for knocking knees and a very crowded table when the food came out. Had indicated it was an anniversary, but no acknowledgement at all. Food was not as good as in past experiences there, but was still good. More

We went there for a friend’s birthday so I let her decide on the food. We had the Caesar salad, which was fabulous. But instead of a main course, we had the charcuterie board & curried mussel. Both were good, but nothing special. Next time I’m getting a steak or fish as both looked amazing. The cocktails were yummy 😋 More

We were there on Christmas Eve. I had made a 5:30 reservation. We rode around looking at Christmas lights and arrived at the restaurant at 5:30. We were seated, served graciously, the manager offered to take a picture of us by the tree on the way out. When I got home I had a phone message from them that they were closing at 5. (Evidently Open Table did not have this information.) I think it was pretty great that they were so gracious and never mentioned that they were keeping the place open for us! We had a great time!

Discover Virginia Beach

The beauty and regency of the coast inspires the neighborhood of Virginia Beach in Norfolk. You can see the influence of the sea in the fine dining establishments all throughout the area. Those who wish to enjoy the great seafood here can choose from a number of regional dishes, such as crab soup and salad made from seasonal greens.
