Zoes Steak & Seafood Ratings and Reviews
Date night with my Wife. Read the reviews and decided to try something new. The interior gave a warm and cozy feel to it, and gave a romantic feel. We decided to get the wine pairing with our dinner and it was worth it. The narration by the sommelier was great and made for a fun and interesting evening. The food was fantastic as were the wine pairings. Would highly recommend to anyone that is into wine and really good food.
I was overall very disappointed in my experience. My husband and I went to Zoes to celebrate New Years Eve. It was a prix fix menu at $150 per plate, with an additional $70 for wine pairings - which he did. They sat us right by the door and it was freezing outside. The service was mediocre and the waitress seemed spread thin. It was a five-course dinner and she didn't serve us any of the dishes herself. Further, the food was subpar for a meal that cost over $500. The risotto was overcooked and the dessert was over-seasoned. The salad was not as described. And for the icing on the cake, the hostesses handed out flowers to each female patron at the restaurant during their dessert course - we, of course, were overlooked for this perk. We will not plan on visiting Zoes again.
Excellent service. Excellent food flavor profiles. Outstanding wine pairings by extremely knowledgeable somileer. Great ambience. Smaller restaurant cozy feel and no rush to turn tables. Went for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it was incredible. Reasonably priced for a four diamond experience. We've eaten at many restaurants all over the world and this is in the top echelon of all of them. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Virginia Beach, over an eight year span. Had not been back for a while. New owners, long time chef has left, food is unimaginative, bland, overcooked (bread is stale) and very much overpriced. Many better places in Virginia Beach to spend an evening.
My husband and I have dined at Zoe's many times . Historically, our experiences have been wonderful. Our most recent was a departure from that is some significant ways. Our waiter was fantastic as he always is- attentive , knowledgeable, and, remembered our preferences . He , as a sommelier, guided us to a great wine that suited the palates of all four of us. We ordered two Chef's Tasting Boards which were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. For our entrée, two filets, and, two Wagyu New Strips were ordered . We were advised of the prices for the four and the eight ounce Wagyu New York strips and the eight ounce portions were chosen . Here is where our dining experience went off the rails. Our filets , broccolini , and , mashed potatoes would have been delicious were they not overly salted. However , the most disappointing thing was the Wagyu New York Strips which were also overly salted. They were sliced and heavily sauced in a way that was unattractive, unappetizing , and, unenjoyable. Worst of all, the steak was more gristle than steak. We finished the meal with dessert and coffee which was delicious. Everything was wonderful , except , the entrees which were not to Zoe's usual standards. Perhaps , we caught the new chef on an off night........most people don't complain, they just don't come back.......
My lady and I had not visited Zoë's in a long time. This occasion seemed even better than the last time. We asked for and got our favorite seating. Service was quick, attentive, and highly professional. Food was delicious, well presented, and abundant but not excessive. You pay for what you get. What could be better?
I have had the privilege of dining here on a number of occasions and I'm positive there will be future dates. Chef has always accommodated our requests, He and rest of the staff knock it out of the park every time, I thank him for this. Zoes is a truly a wonderful dining experience, Food, Wine and Atmosphere all A+ great job keep it up. See you very soon. Joe
Made reservation 4 birthday. Beautiful cozy & private table. Good waitress & food selections. Excellent app. However, ordered 16 oz steak and asked if they knew how to do it Pittsburg style. The waitress said of course as it had a good rep as a steak house. Unfortunately it was not cooked correctly. When waitress came by and asked. I noted that it was not done as requested & she appologized saying they could not get the grill hot enough. And she left me with a steak I did not like. If she had told me they could not make it, would have changed my order. My good mood was shattered. Dont recommend ordering steak here, but the tuna was excellent.
We had a wonderful dinner, as we have come to expect. Service was outstanding and our steaks were cooked properly.
Decided to start with with the corn dog while my wife had the oysters. She enjoyed the oysters , as always. The corn dog was not like any corn dog that I have ever had before and tasted great, probably will have it next visit.
We are looking forward to our next dinner.
There really isn't any restaurant in Hampton Roads/Tidewater that comes close to how great this restaurant is. It measures up to and in a lot of instances surpasses restaurants in LA, NYC, and many other big cities. This is a must experience in the state of Virginia!
This was our first time visiting Zoe's and it was phenomenal, the service was out of this world, the server was very knowledgeable and helpful, plus the food is simply incredible!!!! I can't say enough great things about this establishment. Thank you for a wonderful evening❤️
We are blessed to have several top notch restaurants in Virginia Beach. This is the best for steaks and chops. Anniversary dinner was superb in every respect from the single rose on the table to the wonderful chocolate dessert. Sommelier Marc Sauter was spectacular at the table. Encyclopedic knowledge of wines, and actually down sold us from a very expensive bottle I was considering with the lamb to a spectacular but less expensive bottle with which I was not familiar. Perfect service, the rack of lamb was to die for. In all, a marvelous experience.
Zoe's never disappoints. From it's friendly and knowledgeable wait staff to it's eclectic menu Zoe's is a like a new dining experience every-time we go. The portions are generous and, though I don't drink wine, the wine list is extensive and exemplary. Not inexpensive, whatever one has is worth every penny.
