A word from Aubriana's Fine Dining
Aubriana"s is a unique and exciting restaurant whose melting pot American dishes, such as blackened lamb lollipops featuring mouthwatering tender lamb cut off the rack and served with a delcious jalepeno mint gastrique, are sure to keep even the most refined appetites satiated. Other popular dishes include Chef Alexander's Sunburst Mahi directly from our coast's waters and the Veal Chop Saltimboca, which has garnered such praise as the best cut of meat in town.

We pride ourselves in the fact that all of our sauces and deserts are made to order. Among the Chef's specialty desserts, look for limoncello sorbet, volcano island cake, and the unrivaled double chocolate peanut butter pie. Expect to spend $17 to $30 for dinner.

    My wife and I had dinner there on a whim. We had the truffle risotto appetizer. The risotto had a bit much going on for our taste with very strong flavors: truffle, parmesan, onion, and brussel sprouts. All strong ingredients that combined to give my wife indigestion later, and she only had a few bites. Of course, I ate about half and was fine, but did not care for the dish. My ribeye was very lean and looked nothing like most ribeyes I have eaten with no visible marbling; nothing else was remarkable about it. My wife's salad was not remarkable by any means either. Beautifully set decor and interior. Kudos to the designer. The restaurant's acoustics are very loud. Overall, not worth the price, and I will not return.

    We had a great meal on 8/20/14. We arrived a bit early, but they sat us immediately. Our server had a great local beer recommendation. The spinach salad was fresh and delicious. The pork tenderloin was fantastic, and the creamed corn that it was served over was a terrific side that almost tasted like grits. I would go back again just for the creamed corn! The meal was finished off with a serving of the sea salt and caramel gelato made there at the restaurant. It was a recommendation from our server again, and is possibly the best gelato or ice cream I have ever had. The gelato did not appear as a freestanding dessert option, but they accomodated my request. I can't wait to go back.

    Given all the hype, we expected much, much more. Ambitious kitchen, striving for differentiation, underachieves. Apps: soggy (NOT crispy) frog's legs came out swimming in vaguely Asian, orange glop. Tiny tasty cubes of pork belly arrived in a catcher's mitt sized steam buns that, if you wanted to taste the pork belly, had to be tossed aside. Entrees: pork tenderloin was cooked to juiceless hockey pucks. Carbonara overwhelmed by smoke, smoky pancetta, glop: hard to separate strands of pasta, it all came off plate in one forkful. "Pekin duck a l'orange" was another sweet, goopy failure. The ribeye was okay, but it's difficult to screw up a decent piece of meat. The coconut cake desert was delicious, but coffee was undrinkable. Honestly.

    Appetizers, main course and dessert were delicious, but we had to wait an hour after being seated for our entree to arrive. Server could have been more attentive. Asked for coffee with dessert. First cup was served at room temperature. When I asked for the coffee to be warmed up, the hot coffee tasted less than fresh, like it had sat in the pot for a while. The coffee must have been waiting to be served while we were waiting for our entree. But, the food was delicious and the atmosphere is great, so overall - 4 stars.

    The food was mediocre at best. They were out of entrees by the 8pm seating and were not flexible with food allergies. The lamb stew was lamb chops and the trout did not look as described in the menu. The carrot cake was dry. We could taste the nitrogen on the gelato giving it a metallic taste. Throughout dinner, the air condition vent condensation was dripping on us.

    The best indication of a great restaurant is that everyone enjoys their menu selection and the taste of everyone else's in the family, and I want to duplicate the meals at home. Aubriana's met both requirements! The brunch menu was varied, outstanding in flavor, and fantastically creative takes on Southern staples. We will be back for dinner on the patio!!!!

    Aubriana's has been in existence for 5 or 6 years and we didn't know about this special restaurant. We have been in Wilmington for 15 years and eat out very frequently...my wife closed the home kitchen when I retired. Everything was great, especially Jason, and we look forward to returning to Aubriana's in the near future. Thanks for adding a truly fine dining experience to our personal restaurant guide. P.S., Deserts are ample and delicious.

    I had the special that included, scallops, salmon, polenta,brussel sprout leaves and I am sure other things, but the presentation was unbelievable. It looked like a beach scene including sea foam and a large clam shell. I should have taken a picture, but forgot and was too eager to dive in. Excellent wine selection. Excellent service. This was our first time and will not be our last.

    I have passed this restaurant many times without even looking inside. The patrons of the bed and breakfast recommended this so we decided to try. Upon entering I was impressed with the black tablecloths, candles and the exposed brick make this a charming restaurant. I had chicken cooked under a brick with mixed vegetables which was excellent. My husband had salmon which he thoroughly enjoyed. They also have a great wine list. It is a little pricey but worth it. I made reservations so there was no wait and our table was up front with a view of the waterfront. Our waiter was Hank and he was knowledgable of the menu items and very attentive and friendly.

    Our server, Andrew, was excellent---attentive without being intrusive. Our entrees (seared scallops and pork schnitzel) were about average, nothing special. The mussels appetizer is very large---included about 24, and they were better than the entrees. The lamb lollipops had little taste and were extremely rare (we asked for medium rare). The coconut cream cake (a huge slice) was VERY dry and unappetizing.
