It gives me great pleasure in writing a review for Steven Kroll the head waiter at Orions Roof. I am an Ambassador Elite level Marriott VIP member and travel all over the United States and always stay at the Cavalier Hotel in VB, VA. I...coordinated an important business/ client / partnership dinner at Orions Roof with a large group of 32 guests. Steven Kroll assisted me in every step along the way of completing this huge task. We couldn’t have been more impressed with his diligence; professionalism and hard work facilitating our five star experience. His unparalleled wine knowledge; customer service etiquette and seamless and flawless service cannot be matched or emulated by anyone. What an asset to orions roof and they are very lucky to have him. From the moment we stepped off the elevators We were greeted at the front hostess stand and walked personally back to our beautiful section that was detailed and setup to perfection. Everything from food delivery to wine selections and table maintenance / guest interaction and assistance was flawless and impeccable. My guests needs and expectations were exceed and wow what an impression was made Monday evening. I cannot thank Steven Kroll enough and I strongly recommend him to anyone dining at orions roof. This type of passion and talent and knowledge is rarely seen in the restaurant industry these days. Congratulations for a job well done and I thank you for your hard work! Also shout out to Sean who assisted Steven with our group!More

My boyfriend and I went out to dinner at Orion’s Roof and had Aaron as our server. Aaron is a great server and made this experience very positive and fun-filled. The food was amazing too! We definitely plan on eating at Orion’s Roof again!

Fantastic upscale sushi and Asian fusion restaurant. The rooftop views are simply unbeatable in VA beach. Service was fun and professional. Food was mouth-wateringly great and drinks were perfect. It is a bit pricey but worth every dollar. Great date night, or celebration spot. Highly...recommend.More

This was our 7th and 8th visits in four stays at the Marriott Virginia Beach. And every visit was 5 Stars. The food and wine are always excellent and the suggestions by the waiter staff always "spot on." I was looking forward to the short...ribs during the dinner visit, but unfortunately, they were no longer on the menu. But our waiter, "Jon", suggested that we try the lamb as it was a new offering by the (new) Chef. My wife chose it and wasn't disappointed. I had a bite too, and it was excellent. The only suggestion from two Americans that spent 17 years "down under" in Australia, was that a little mint jelly on the side would have been nice. I asked Jon what he suggested for myself and he recommended the duck. I was hesitant as many restaurants don't get duck right. Usually, its a bit dry and less flavorful. Well, Jon's recommendation was also spot on! The best duck I remember and that's with 20 years in Asia! The vegetables were quite varied with an Asian flair and the duck was moist, tender and exceptionally delicious. With the Pinot Noir that Jon also recommended with the duck, a great pairing. In fact, and with years of experience with wine stored in my Euro Cave from France, it was so smooth and palatable, that even someone that usually wouldn't drink red wine would enjoy it. My wife did and she's a Sauvignon Blanc type. I looked over the wine menu by the bottle and it was quite varied and the mark up was lower than most good restaurants. We enjoyed lunch two days later and our waiter was Matt, who was our waiter early in 2021 during our first visit. Matt also made excellent suggestions as well. Enjoyed the Sushi as its truly exxcellent and I offer that with many years living and working Asia-wide. We drive down from Alexandria to stay at the Marriott Virginia Beach for two reasons, the Orion Rooftop Restaurant; and, the excellent staff attitude and positive "can-do" personality not only in the Orion, but hotel wide! We met the Orion Manager, "CJ," on the way out from dinner on Monday evening and he is quite a pleasant and professional guy. When we mentioned we were visiting again on Wednesday, he made sure we'd get a table with a nice view! We did!! Do yourself a favor and give the Orion on the Roof a try. Jeff & Rosann WilliamsMore

I came here to eat dinner with my girlfriend as an early Mother’s Day/ date night. I had the mussels and the corn as an appetizer and they were amazing. My server Aaron was bubbly and full of life! I loved him. My entree was...the swordfish with the pineapple fried rice, and that’s where it went downhill. The fish was dry and had no flavor at all. (My server confirmed for me also) I ended up not eating my entree but as far as ambiance goes, it’s beautiful and I would love to try it again…. I thinkMore

Not very impressive and actually disappointed. We were told by several locals that this is the place to enjoy an anniversary dinner. We went to celebrate our 25th. Atmosphere is all that is going for the place. Service was slow. My husband’s miso soup was...served lukewarm. My entree the Black Miso cod with pickled carrots and spinach came with fried burdock instead, which I do not like. The waitress didn’t even offer me a substitute when I asked why there wasn’t the vegetable as indicated on the menu. She replied, “I told them to change this awhile ago on the menu, they still haven’t”. I didn’t even get, a can I offer you something else? Very unhappy especially because it was cheap. I don’t recommend this place unless maybe you go for just sushi but if you do MAKE SURE YOU GET WHAT YOU ORDERED. Not the best anniversary memory.More
