Everything was delicious and presented beautifully. We sat on the patio, which was very private, and the service was excellent. Prices are very high, and we were not impressed with the O.M.G. Carrot Cake (yet we managed to eat it all LOL). Just be prepared to pay ALOT! 2 entrees, 3 drinks, 2 appetizers and 1 dessert were nearly $200 before tip.

We had a wonderful evening. The staff is like a well oiled machine. Each one knowing their part and executing it perfectly. Each dish was absolutely delicious; they were also plated beautifully, served knowledgeably, and cleared immediately. Savannah was our server and did an impeccable job. The surprise of the evening was that the macaroons were better than anywhere else we have ever had them.

We did a wine pairing dinner and the Sommelier Bryan was FANTASTIC. His knowledge of the wine was deep and we enjoyed each wine that he paired with each course. Will definitely be back.

Every detail from the Valet to the host taking our temperature, our waiter (Brian) and wait staff (Jessica and others) to our sommelier was exceptional. Highly recommend getting the wine pairing, Mark is one of the best Sommelier that I have met and it adds a lot to the experience. Had the Surf and Turf - Perfect can't go wrong. Dont be afraid it sounds like too much food but trust me there will be nothing left. Wife had Leg of Lamb which was amazing. If you want exceptional atmosphere, food and service Zoe's is the place in Virginia Beach.

Everything about our dinner was fantastic! We had the chef’s cheese board and raw oysters to start. For the main course we had the 16oz ribeye and leg of lamb, both of which were cooked exactly to our preference. Carrot cake for dessert. Highly recommend the wine pairings option ($40 for 3 courses). The sommelier, Marc was very knowledgeable and friendly.

My boyfriend and I were in VA Beach for his birthday and stumbled upon Zoe’s. We had the charcuterie board, the softshell crab. I had the filet and he had the ribeye. Everything was delicious! Also, the service was really good too. I was chilly because there was a vent blowing right on me and the waitress offered to loan me a shawl. I thought that was very nice! I would definitely return to Zoe’s

Everything was perfect! Me and my love had a quiet, fine dining experience not to mention the music was just right too~ I recall Van Morrison “When the foghorn blows” and Steve Nicks playing. Our server was a Wine Sommelier and taught me a lot about Willamete Valley Wines. Their ribeye has officially spoiled me for life I am afraid, as I may never have better! Thank you to the entire staff for this special treat of an experience!

Service was great! Starters were delicious! Surf and turf was just “ok” definitely not recommend to try!
Wagyu burger one of the best!
While we were at our dinner they couldn’t find anyone who can make classic whiskey sour.
Big wine choice!

As always, the service, food, and wine were amazing. Kennedy was our server and her friendly demeanor, experience, and recommendations were on point. Marc’s wine pairings were perfection. The ribeye was cooked and seasoned perfectly, the mashed potatoes and corn were extremely tasty, and the profiteroles were outstanding as well!

Love dining at Zoe’s and we’ll go back as often as possible!

From the time we walked in (New Norm covid era) we felt welcomed.
I used Open Table to make reservation and noted it was our 1yr Wed Anniversary. There was a card on the table to us! Well, that made the evening.
Food/Wine. Well we had a scratch dent bottle $150 for $75. It was beyond awesome. We split a 1/2 lettuce and split a surf n turf. The food was cooked perfectly. The NY strip at Med rare was perfect melt in your mouth and the lobster Tale was just as good. The portion was perfect for the 2 of us. Our waiter knew soooo much about the wine. It made the night. We went on a wimm for the anniversary and haven't gone out much but Zoë dis not disappoint.

They told my credit card company they were a grocery store vs a restaurant and when they called to confirm reservation they neglected to point out the alcohol restriction. I called and asked why they told my credit card company they were a grocery store and the person told me management was in a meeting but that they would call me right back, they didn't.

We don't tell our credit card company any information about your card. We just use it to process your check. You can take that up with your card company. The alcohol restriction is in Hampton Roads brought by the Executive Order from Governor Northam. We inform all of our guest with a reservation after 8:30 at the door. We then acknowledge it to all of our guests at 9:30 then again at 9:50. I tried calling you back, sorry you missed my call. Enjoy your stay.

Overall we had a great experience but my steak was over cooked so waiting for it was not pleasant as my husband had to eat without me while I waited for a redo of my steak. Was no biggie but just a little disappointing. Would still go back as it was worth it. Everyone was super nice and felt like I was in a big city restaurant. Lovely!

Delicious as usual, however, my filet mignon was a bit overdone for medium and overly salted this time. Also, as a group of four chatting after our meal was complete (and we ordered dessert), we sat there for about 30 minutes or so without any of our waters being refilled after the check was delivered and paid. That was pretty ridiculous for the type of eating establishment they are. Waiter was not super attentive either.

Again...simply amazing! I took my daughter for a special graduation dinner and the entire staff was fantastic! Our waiter remembered me from the last time I dined with my wife and made me feel like a regular and valued customer. I had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly, along with all the accompanying sides. The Zoe’s Caesar was very tasty and the strawberry Napoleon was so damn good!

Thanks again to a wonderful evening out and for helping me impress my little girl!
