Outstanding food, service and ambiance however our experience was marred by the boorish group sitting at the adjacent table.

Food was average compared to the cost. Ambience was good as well as the service. The Caesar salad was excellent, unfortunately the appetizer speciality which consisted of steak spiced was too salty and the lobster pops were bland. Would not recommend.

Somallier Marc was outstanding!! We saw that a wine pairing menu was available and the four of us opted for that, choosing different dishes and as a result, we each had different wines. The food was exceptional and the wines were brilliantly paired with each course. Truly a memorable experience. We might have over-stayed our welcome but we didn’t want to leave! It was THAT good.

The old Chef departed and they have two co-head chefs. This is the first time we have visited since the change and we were not disappointed. We started with the Makers Mark manhattans and they were spot on. My wife enjoyed her shrimp cocktail and I devoured the pork butt for aps. The Cesar salad was as good as usual. We both enjoyed the ribeye.

We like the food and enjoyed talking with Marc and our server Matthew

Overall it was fine. But there was a longer than necessary delay in placing the order for the entrees. For over $400 it felt as though the service should have been more “attentive”.

AS always Great food and service. Including the friendly Vallet Parking attendant. Very nice
to try something new each time I go there with the changing menu from season to season. Never been disappointed with the quality, presentation or the taste of anything I have ordered.
Zoes is a favorite restaurant for me, and unfortunately its 4 hours away so It is TRULY a special treat when I get to go there. A little on the pricey side. .. But well worth the $$.

It was my husband's birthday. When we arrived at the restaurant, there was a birthday card waiting for him from the staff. The extensive wine list was wonderful. The food was impeccable. I had the 3 course menu with the mushroom risotto, crab bisque, and New York strip. Everything tasted amazing and was prepared perfectly. My husband got the lobster pops and lamb. The lobster pops are a must! So unique and tastes amazing. The services was great. I can't wait to go back.

This wasn't our first visit to Zoe's and it won't be our last. We specifically went to take advantage of their "Winter Special Menu" - 3 courses for $50. We were not disappointed.
My husband's first course, Southern Roots smoked Pork Butt, was one of the best dishes we have ever had, anywhere. My second course, Southern Caesar, was beautiful. A deconstructed Caesar Salad with Beet Pickled Quail Eggs and a Bacon/Anchovy Jam. Our third courses were above par, as well. We had the 16oz boneless Strip (more than half went home) and the North Carolina Shrimp and Grits. Huge tempura battered shrimp over pimento cheese grits, which I continued to enjoy the next morning with bacon and an over easy egg.
We were so impressed with the quality of the food and service. We took our server/sommelier's suggestion for a bottle of wine from the "Scratch and Dent List" and it was perfect and quite a bargain, too! Locals (and visitors) should definitely make a trip for the Winter Special. There are about 5 choices for the 1st and 3rd courses and a choice between the Southern Caesar or She Crab Bisque, which my husband says was excellent. We can't wait to see what the "Spring Special" brings.

Probably the best, better than Bone Fish Grill and Isle of Capri. However, the Cavalier's Becca and Hunt Room will offer stiff competition for that number one spot.

Great service and ambience; very intimate setting. For the price, I expected the food to be mind blowing but it was not. We had the crab mac n’ cheese: noodles were overcooked and the dish was room temp, Med Rare Ribeye steak: hot and tasty, Well done NY strip: hot and very tough-I have carpal tunnel so it was very uncomfortable cutting through the steak, Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli was hot and tasty however, I didnt like the fact of both being under our meat; I expected it to be on the side.

I found this restaurant on Open Table and the menu and the reviews convinced me to try it. I was very happy with my decision! We were visiting my niece and celebrating her new job. The cocktails and lounge waiting area were a nice start. Kate was our server and she was excellent from beginning to end. The Lobster Sausage pops were scrumptious and we all loved our steaks. The crab mac and cheese was worth every calorie and we definitely took advantage of the Scratch and Dent Wine List, I loved the concept. The only disappointment was that we were all too full for dessert...maybe next time.

I have been to Zoes before, but I believe you can’t truly review a restaurant until they have proven themselves on multiple occasions. This place has.

The sommelier, Marc, is a true master of pairings and the only one south of NYC I can personally give that credit to. He is passionate over his craft and takes great pride in ensuring both the wine and food are elevated in his suggestions. In particular, we experienced a rare White Port with our Roquefort during the cheese course, and it was just perfection. Many other elements were outstanding: the pickled quail eggs in the Caesar salad were a lovely touch, the Miyazaki Wagyu was prepared beautifully, and after having multiple surgeries on my leg it was refreshing to be immediately accommodated at a larger table (so I could elevate my cast) upon our arrival.

Still, to me the pairings are why you go here. We have been to Michelin starred restaurants across the globe, and here in our little town of Virginia Beach this place holds its own. Thank you Zoes! We will return again.

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.
