Zoes Steak & Seafood Restaurant Review

: While there’s something different offered practically every night, you can count on Zoës to roll out red carpet cuisine, be it steaks such as an eight-ounce Harris Ranch Prime filet mignon or 16-ounce Reserve Angus bone-in cowboy cut rib-eye, or the burgundy braised U8 scallops. Standard bearers include blue crab mac ‘n’ cheese and, for dessert, a signature “cup of hot chocolate” made with Valrhona. Order from the “Small, Delicate and Relevant” section with options like local Pleasure House oysters with seasonal mignonette or “Southern Roots” smoked pork butt (relevant for sure in these parts, even if not delicate). The “Main Feast” selections range from lobster jambalaya to 24-hour Kobe short rib confit with foie gras brioche “French toast.” Or choose three to six courses, with wine, for an individualized Chef’s Tasting Menu. Pillow-strewn booths work equally well for romantic dates or deal-sealing dinners, and two serpentine booths (one overlooking the open kitchen) are good for groups. Some of the area’s best wine events happen here, and there are even wine lockers for connoisseurs.

Fantastic Dining in VA Beach

My wife and I had the chance to have dinner at Zoe's with some friends. What a find. This restaurant rates right up there with the best of DC and NY. The food was impeccable (crispy Scallops and Clams D 'Asti my favorites). The staff was excited about what they were serving and did it with the comfort and humor of a meal at a friend's house. Mark, the Sommelier, was incredible. He may know more about West Coast vineyards than anyone we have encountered (even in CA). His ability to pair wines with food courses, and explain it unpretentiously, was a treat. The wine was phenomenal. Zoe's is now our favorite restaurant outside of New York. It is truly fine dining. Thanks to Jerry and Mark for a memorable meal and evening.
