This was the best seafood restaurant we dined at while in Virginia Beach. They have an interesting menu to choose from and the quality of the food served was excellent. Waitstaff were topnotch. We went on a Friday night and they were very busy. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in Virginia Beach.

Wow! What a great price for what you get. We had Oysters Rockafeller to start. Yummy. Early bird special came with a Caesar salad, cornbread and dessert. We ordered the friend shrimp with green beans and potatoes. The shrimp were delicious and plentiful. Left there stuffed. The service was excellent. Did you know that Rockafeller's can accommodate private parties. We... More

We had a reservation for 7:00, and waited over 30 minutes--why take Reservations if you can't fulfill them---horrible service

I try and eat here atleast once a year when I am in town but this trip was not good. Neither myself or my co-workers meal was very good. Service was sub-par as well

My son invited my mother, 92, and me to Rockafeller's for a late lunch. My mother is in a wheelchair, so it took us a little time to give the car to the valet. Everyone was pleasant and not rushed, and she was up the path and at the door of the restaurant fairly quickly. We were met by Brian... More

I go for the Mojitos but their food specials make it affordable to stay for dinner too. Love the view from the second floor banquet room.

They easily and promptly seated our party of 15. Yes, we had made reservations a few days in advance. Our server, Nathan, was wonderful; prompt, knowledgeable and made it all look so easy. Half of our party enjoyed brunch menu items (Eggs Benedict with lobster was a favorite) while the other half ordered some of their specials. My wife and... More

Service was good with a friendly atmosphere. Meals were rather pricey. Food was average ... was expecting much more from the cuisine. A bit too crowded.

We visited Rockafeller's on Saturday night to celebrate Mother's Day. We made reservations with the OpenTable app which was great! We even got a call the day of to confirm reservations. We arrived a bit early and to our dismay, mandatory valet service. I'm not sure how I felt about this because I am very capable of parking my own... More

Food was amazing!! Perfectly cooked, served hot!! Staff seated us fast and was quick to bring water out while looking at menus. Leon's service was great, he was respectful. When asked questions he'd answer them in great detail. Leon laughed at some of our jokes or made a few him self!! My family and I love when servers do that!!... More
