Always fantastic! I wish I could visit more often! From the service to the food, I have only rarely enjoyed a dinner here that was merely good and not outstanding. My favorite restaurant in Richmond. Really top notch Indian food, knowledgeable wait staff and spice levels that are always accurate and provide the best dining experience.

About the restaurant
Mizuno Japanese Restaurant is a family-run business that first opened in 1996. Located in Virginia Beach, Mizuno is embedded in a seafood hotspot, only 25 miles south of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and 158 miles south of Hatteras, North Carolina. Chef-owner Wataru Mizuno feels blessed to be a sushi chef in a culinary trifecta like Virginia Beach. Mizuno and his team take advantage of the restaurant's access to local sources by artfully composing daily specials that feature fresh shrimp, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, flounder, blue crabs and oysters, to name a few. The hook's simple. Mizuno resists complicated sauces and excessive ingredients. Instead, he flavors scallops from the world famous Chesapeake Bay, adding nothing more, at times, than a dash of citrus and a pinch of sea salt. Wataru Mizuno: Chef/Owner Born in Japan, Wataru Mizuno received his formal training in Tokyo, as an apprentice under master Teruo Sato.

About the restaurant
THE PINE ROOM
Offering an Authentic Taste of Virginia's Blue Ridge
Welcome to the historic and brand new Pine Room! Once a writing room, a World War II Officer's Club and a Pub, the new Pine Room features an open kitchen that is the star of the show, as the Pine Room Chefs are on full display entertaining guests as their meal is prepared.
Guests will find the familiar comforts of the space they remember with the exposed historic pine wood paneling matched with our Hotel Roanoke four-diamond service that’s refined but relaxed, and a dining experience that’s unpretentious, delicious, and exciting.
The outdoor patios welcome the Autumn season capturing the stunning views of the Mill Mountain Star and the City Market, while providing an engaging visual as guests approach the property, blending seamlessly into the historic core of the building.

This was my first time dining in the Pine Room at Hotel Roanoke. The host gave me a warm welcome and took me to my table. The place atmosphere was relaxing yet at the same time sofisticated. It has an open kitchen so you can see the food being made. My server Penny provided me with excellent customer service. She answered all the questions I had about the menu. I started with a Caesar salad, which was extraordinary. For my main course, I had the Slow Roasted Pork Shank. It looked and tasted amazing. And for dessert, I had the Baked Freeform Fruit Pie with Honey Ice Cream and Caramel on top. The chef Erin did an excellent job preparing a delicious dinner for me. I highly recommend this place if you want to have a relaxing dining experience in a comfortable and amusing environment.

A very good lunch at The Daily Carytown. We were seated immediately with our reservation. The service was very good, and as always, lots of selections for my gluten-free diet.

From its prime perch in The Shops at Stonefield, matchbox will delight neighborhood workers, visitors, and residents with a casual, welcoming spot for a quick weekday lunch, lively happy hour, bottomless weekend brunch, and dinner for both date nights and groups. Owned by Maurice Kelly, a technologist and former Navy Intelligence Officer turned restaurateur, Matchbox Charlottesville opens this winter, boasting artisanal pizzas, creative American bistro fare, and a come-as-you-are vibe.

A definitive element of the Matchbox dining experience is the custom pizza oven that fires up signature thin-crust pizzas within minutes, and its surrounding pizza bar that offers a front-row view of the action. The bar at Matchbox is a focal point of the dining experience.. Hand-painted murals from local artists add further context to the neighborhood, and bring in a touch of personality as well.
