Eat: An American Bistro Reviews

Heike Yates

We had seen this little bistro on many visits but never eat there. We would recommend it. It’s small and intimate and has also a little bar area.

We decided to eat outside as the dining area smelled musty and ate on their little patio instead. The food was interesting and delicious and we where told that the chef had been there for 16 years!

The restrooms are by the pool outside the restaurant but clean and well kept. Good service and tasty food.

Visited for the first time yesterday and can’t wait to return. Such a great meal! Definitely recommend the charcuterie board, also with their bread. The paella is amazing! And so were the deviled eggs. All the flavors went so well together!

We had dinner at Eat and it was a nice experience. The food was very good and interesting! They get creative in the kitchen which is refreshing 🙂 It’s a bit pricey but all the ingredients were very fine quality and fresh.

This cute little spot is right nice to the new nice Marriott hotel at the Ocean Front. I reserved a table for my husband and I on Open Table. We arrived early and they were still able to seat us immediately. It is nice small intimate restaurant. We had good service and the menu seemed very good. I had a hard time deciding what to eat.

I was disappointed in the drinks. I ordered a Lavender Lentini because it was one of their special drinks. I did not like it! So the server took it and gave me a Prosecco which tasted cheap and flat.

Our appetizer was the “Fire and Ice” it was tuna tataki. It was the best thing I had tasted at the restaurant. I think I would come back and eat only this. So I highly recommend ordering it.

My husband ordered the salmon special and I ordered grilled tuna buigoigi. My husband enjoyed his salmon, however my grilled tuna buigoigi with rice was overly sauced with what tasted like soy sauce. I couldn’t finish my dish it was just too saucy.

We ordered something from the dessert menu that had toffee flavored and ice cream. That was pretty delicious.

I had to use the restroom and was caught off guard that the restroom was in the back, outside of the restaurant. It was freezing to go from the back door out to the bathroom. It is also one one single bathroom for everyone to use. The bathroom was shockingly clean.

Overall, I didn’t love my dish or my drinks which is what kept me from rating this place a 5 star.

Although you can’t see the beach from the outdoor seating, this fine dining restaurant was an experience in itself. From the delicious food to the fabulous drinks, this restaurant is a must for those who enjoy a fine dining experience. We will be back.

The food is incredibly inventive and tasteful. I was surprised at just how savory the tuna bulgogi dish was. The paella comes in a massive dish so be prepared to take some home with you! Their drink specials are also quite good.

The only downside, which is certainly not the servers’ faults, is how backed up everything was.

Amazing presentation! The chef is INCREDIBLE. The food is outstanding in a cozy, warm environment with great service. I can’t wait to come back to Virginia just so I can eat here again

Eat : An American Bistro. Absolutely delicious menu! Atmosphere was delightful and welcoming. Service was not rushed. Overall exceptional experience…we will definitely be back!! **Highly recommend the charcuterie board


One of my favorite restaurants at the beach. Food is imaginative and great quality. Service is on point. There is NO parking which is problematic so I recommend an Uber or biking here.

My husband and I loved the atmosphere, our server Tyler was very polite and attentive. The steak I was able to cut like butter, the hand cut fries with the cheese curds, bacon, and gravy was just amazing. My husband had the special which was a Vietnamese soft crab dish and he tore that up! The charcuterie board was fresh and delicious-we particularly loved the blue cheese and the fig spread, loved the oyster Rockefeller as well! The bread and butter that came with the Cobb salad was on point. The only negative thing I have to say is about the deviled eggs, there was an unpleasant very strong pickle taste ..but other than that no other complaints. Lastly we had the banana bread pudding and did not regret our choice. Parking sucks really bad. You just have to find somewhere and cross your fingers hoping you don’t have to walk too far. The bathroom is right outside of the establishment and is extremely hot inside…just a warning. ..but anyways we loved this place and will definitely come back in the future.
