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.

"We had the 18$ 2 course-lunch. The dining-room is very large and decorated with frescoes. The house salad was tasty and well-seasoned. My main course was a home-made Papardelle with fresh tomatoes. It was delicately cooked. We also had an extra dessert, the Mascarpone cheesecake, which was light and original. The service was attentive. The bread was also excellent and served with nice olive oil."
