Great new place!
We went early on a Tuesday so it was quiet. Beautifully decorated. Everyone was friendly. Our server was knowledgeable and gave us some suggestions. The pumpkin ravioli from the tasting menu was delicious as well as the crab gratin appetizer. We also tried the fish tacos (yum) the pear salad and shrimp, scallop and crab risotto. I enjoyed it and will definitely go back.

A Great Place
We went here after seeing a show at DuPont so it was pretty quiet since it was around 5pm. The food is fantastic here over and over again. I don't know who the chef is but he is great!

Whenever we have tickets to a show in the city, we always dine at Ernest and Scott. The staff are friendly and appreciative. Our waiter, Elvis, was outstanding. It was obvious that he takes great pride in providing his customers with excellent service. He also is passionate about the city of Wilmington and the thriving place that it can become. The food was excellent. The Diablo Calamari was deliciously spicy - what a delectable sauce! We had shrimp and scallops and salmon with crab imperial. The flavors of each blended so precisely together. We would definitely order them again. The beer selection is also a draw. They have so many different craft beers there is always something new to try!

Smoking Joe's Event
Our first visit to Ernest & Scott was for the Smoking Joe's event. The food was delicious, service was impeccable, and the ambiance was delightful. We lucked out with fantastic weather for an outdoor event in July; the set up of the patio with the lighting and atmosphere was great! Only inside for a few minutes, but there was great lighting while creating intimate looking seating. Will be going back for both the next event and dinners.

Thought it would be better.
Loved the dining room, and the booth. Ordered the salmon and it came out cold. Husband's cheese burger was really, really good, although well done when he ordered medium. They zapped my salmon and brought it back out and it was super hot. The sauce was very weak and tasteless, but the concept of the dish was good. Would have liked more flavor in the sauce.

Ernest & Scott
Great atmosphere! Food is always good and the service is perfect. The people who work there are always friendly and that's a rare find. It's a fantastic place to have a meal (and a cocktail) for lunch, dinner or maybe before a show downtown. You should go!

This spot has a wide variety of good drinks and unusual dinner selections. Nice spot that's just different enough to stand apart.

Overall, a good visit!
We went on a Thurs. night. High ceilings make it noisier than average. The Halloween decorations were extensive. Someone put a lot of work into them. :-)
There is free street parking after 6pm but those are hard to come by.
Our server, Tom, was very attentive. We split the honey bbq boneless wings appetizer (on special before 7pm so they were only $6). They were good but inconsistent in size/shape.
I ordered the chicken milanese. The chicken breast was HUGE. The arugula salad on top had olive oil, olives, peppers, parmesan cheese. My BF had the chicken caprese burger (which is not a burger at all since it's a grilled chicken breast). He said the sandwich was really good.

Comfortable Pre-Show Dinner
We enjoyed our dinner here before a show at The Grand. One of us had fish tacos and the other had a burger. Both were very good and the french fries were amazing. The menu did include some interesting sounding dinners but we were more in the mood for burgers/tacos. Our server (Ike) was outstanding -- very friendly and attentive. We loved the entertainment they had that evening. The singer/guitarist was really good and it would be pleasant to just have some drinks and enjoy the music. It's great to have a pleasant place for dinner and/or drinks within a block of The Grand. Next time you're in downtown Wilmington, give it a try!

We found this restaurant on
We found this restaurant on Open Table. It suited us because it was close to Opera House. Food was very good. We had one complaint about an appetizer (it was good but not as described)and the manager took it off our bill. All in all it was a great experience. Beautiful building. Would definitely go back.

Nice Place to stop
If you are in the Opera House or Dupont Theatre area this is a nice walkable choice for good quality bistro style food. There is a nice selection of wines and craft beers. We were there for dinner before a show but happy hour was busy too. On Wed nights they have a live Blues show. This was a little loud if you are expecting a quiet dinner but it is a tap room.

Wife had the Confit Chicken off the menu and I had the special Duck Confit. They both were EXCELLENT

We enjoy the vast beer selection
We enjoy the vast beer selection and the food. They are also great at getting you out in time to see a show at the Grand. The night we were there they had Blues musicians playing. They sounded great!
