I have been here multiple times since they have opened. Went about 3 weeks after they opened for the first time and they continue to impress me more and more. First atmosphere is perfect, it is a beautiful restaurant at a great location. It has that upscale look but they make you feel casual and comfortable. Its not your typical white table cloth stuffy steakhouse. Yes the food (great prices for what they serve) is upscale and plated beautiful, not to mention that is of course amazing and one of the best meals iv had in many of places around this country and yes i do travel a lot. The service has always been perfect and they are very good with remembering who we are. Owner/Chef is an amazing young man, he always tires to sneak out of the kitchen to make his rounds to the customers and always thank them for coming out and making sure everything is alright. Yes at times when we watch them cook ( they have a beautiful open kitchen that kind of gives you a show while you wait for your food) and he is busy he will atleast try and acknowledge as many customers as possible with a simple wave. You see a lot of people walk up to the kitchen window, and usually compliment him and his chefs on a amazing meal. Trust me i know, iv been one of them. His staff is very well trained, Adam who i believe serves and is front of the house manager, has always been helpful with us. Very Polite young man and always eager to sell us on one of the specials for the night. Overall, i hope this place can become a staple in Virginia Beach, I would hate to see this place go, and by the product and service they give you i do not believe that will be happening
Normally I go to Dupre's, however, they were all booked on the Saturday I had free to have my hair re-colored and cut so I called "Hair We Are". Upon my arrival I was greeted with friendly faces and was asked if I'd like anything to drink. Check in was simple. My stylist (Lilian) was extremely outgoing and a pleasure to have. I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome of my hair and the relaxed, but family friendly atmosphere. Customers were coming in with their children of all ages, customers of all backgrounds even. I was very pleased seeing as normally I felt I had to be "dressed to impress" each time I went to Dupres. It felt like a down home, good, relaxing, come as you are, place. My appointment was at 2, but I did not get finished until about 530. (My hair was a wreak) My stylist said she got off at 5 and was going out of town that evening, however, did not give me that "let's hurry up and get this over with" feel at all. She made me feel like I came first, which I appreciate! (being in the customer service field myself, I know how important it is to make the customer feel that way and she A'ced it!) The turn out of my hair was hands down the BEST I've ever seen it! AND it was about $150 cheaper than I paid at the previous salon I went to!!!! Granted, at the old salon, I felt they pressured me into purchasing something each and everytime I went in, which I caved into doing. That could have led to a larger bill a bit.... All in all, I will stick with Lilian at Hair We Are and recommend her and this salon to everyone I know! YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PLACE!
Back in 2007 Jim saw me and told a friend that he could help me with my hair. I went to Jim and was already doing the Biotin, but the best advise he gave me was to not only wash my hair but the also shower in a cool shower instead of a hot one. I now have a full head of hair and it grows so fast that I can't believe it's down the middle of my back. The people at the Image are absolutely wonderful! I would recommend Jim any day, night, or whenever to do someone's hair. I even had Jim do my hair for my wedding, which turned out beautifully. I received several compliments on my hair, not only at the wedding, but every day now. I can't say enough about Jim or the crew at the Image. I will go no where else for my hair to be done and my spouse also has Jim do his hair. Thanks again to the Image at Haygood and especially to Jim!
