Located in the north end of Virginia Beach, just a short walk from the community's famous boardwalk, Terrapin offers an intimate dining experience showcasing Chef Rodney Einhorn's award-winning contemporary American Cuisine and creative use of seasonal farm to fork ingredients.<br /><br />Terrapin's recently renovated, warm, elegant dining room seats 50 guests. A striking Zebra Wood bar with overhead floating laterns and a view of the action in the open kitchen seats 12. Comfortable outdoor dining on Terrapin's charming Terrace is available seasonally.

"I had the four-course tasting menu with wine pairings for 80 $. This is typical Nouvelle Cuisine with small portions. The first dish, a cream chowder, was most disappointing, with lost of barely cooked bits of potatoes and not particularly tasty altogether. The second dish was a more original gnocchi with rabbit. The main course was a quail over a bed of beans. The meat was very tender. The dessert was a passion cake with chocolate truffle and passion sorbet. The wine glasses were too small, though, as it is unfortunately the case with most wine pairings nowadays. I appreciated the Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara the most. Altogether, a good dinner but nothing extraordinary for such high price."

Goodstone Inn & Restaurant features a refined approach to French Country cuisine keeping to traditional and classical techniques. The innovative farm-to-table cuisine and the pastoral setting on a 265-acre estate in Virginia's wine and hunt country provide a unique dining experience for restaurant guests. <br />

"My wife and I had lunch at the Goodstone Inn last Saturday. The place is located in a remote rural area that is hard to find for visitors. We had the surprise 4 course-menu. The first course, a corn and potatoes soup was very tasty and filling. Then came a salad with blue cheese, which was rather unremarkable. The highlight of the menu was the main course: a cod fish that was very well cooked and seasoned. The dessert, though, was disappointing: a mediocre Panna Cotta that was not even fresh.
The wine by the glass selection was expensive (15 $ average) and not particularly striking. What was also missing from the menu were some 'amuse-bouches' between each course, which should be the rule for a restaurant with such ambitions. Overall, a decent culinary experience, but not more.
