    We were here for my boyfriends birthday with a group of 16. It's his favorite spot, and everyone had a great time. However, prices here are very high. Tapas are small. Delicious, but be prepared to pay $5 per scallop then still be hungry because you only get three. No on tap beers, and one martini will run you $10. Get dinner and a beer first. THEN come to 1900. Otherwise its going to be a $100 for two martinis, the two tapas you need because they are bird size (and I'm a size 2, so my appetite isn't abnormal...I could eat more) unless you get the junk food, and a couple beers.

    Our first visit to this restaurant, even though we are local. First (and most important), the small plate selection was very good, well prepared, fast, and counts as the best tapas-style meal we have had in Wilmington. Second, the wine selection was good (especially nice was the Spanish wines available - the non-sweet whites) and the beer selection was acceptable. Third, our wait staff (Beth) was knowledgeable and very helpful. Prices are middle range (note the location across from Landfall) but the food was worth the price. Bar scene is a bit noisy but mostly an older crowd. The only suggestion would be to ask for a table (use OPEN TABLE) as the low chairs (early 1970's lounge seating) are a bit low and not designed for dining.

    A delightful dining experience. We ordered five tapas selections in all and each was better than the next. 1900 offers a great way to try new tastes in such a fun way. Our cocktail was excellent, food divine. And what I especially enjoy is that you can actually hear each other talk. The design of the restaurant with divided areas offers intimacy and energy. A rare combination. If only we lived closer. I would go to Cameo 1900 way more often.

    I was hesitant about going since it was tapas style dining and I wasn't sure there would be enough food. Not a problem. We each ordered two dishes and shared. We enjoyed all our choices. The mussels and baby back ribs were especially good. The service was attentive and the seating different from most places. You have your choice of lounge or traditional seating. We chose traditional but would try lounge on our return visit.

    Good food, and well presented. A little over priced but has a great atmosphere. Service needs work. Staff is not very knowledgeable or attentive. If this is your first time to a Tapas bar, you will need to tell the waitress/waiter to explain the menu and drink selection.

    Very nice restaurant--great ambiance and very good service. Waitstaff very helpful helping you place your order if it is your first visit. Food was very good, however a little pricey. People with large appetites might be disappointed as the plate servings are very small, but a great opportunity to try different things. We were there on a Thurs. night and they had live jazz--very enjoyable evening.

    food when finally served was very enjoyable. Our waiter 'forgot' to place our food order so therfor we sat for over an hour watching food being delivered to other tables. this was extremely annoying and had I not inquired, we might still be sitting there! However when it did finally arrive, it was very good. Ther was a large noisy crowd at the bar so it was very loud but looks like a fun place for a late night snack and drink

    I ate here on vacation last year and absolutely had to come back for the cucumber gimlet. Specialty drink menu is interesting and delicious. The tapas menu, while not as good as the drink menu, lends itself to sharing with a group but it's a little too noisy for more than two on a weekend night. The decor is fun and funky.

    We were given a choice of seating when we entered, and our party of 4 chose the low Japanese-style seats. It was a little uncomfortable for one person, as he wasn't able to sit back and had to lean forward. The waitress had to be asked how the small plates service works. She was very accommodating, although we heard her tell another table, who sat within earshot of us, what the specials were as soon as she went to their table. We were not informed of specials. There were many types of food choices. Most in our party had plenty to eat and shared, although $16 for two tiny lamb chops was a bit steep and was too small to be shared. The music system played relaxing, soulful tunes, and live dining jazz began around 7:30. Beautiful atmosphere.

    Had an amazing time! Came with 6 girls, 4 of whom had never been before. They all loved the food, atmosphere, and especially the service. Ryan took the time to make the event special and fun. We were a little rowdy and super high maintenance but he was definitely on top of things. We will all definitely be back, and we're asking for him! The manager was very kind to take the time out of his busy shift to take a picture of us and our server. What a great place! Thanks again Cameo!

    Cameo 1900 had a nice, modern atmosphere and it was cool that we had the option to choose the classic seating style or the more modern alcoves. The food was tapas style, at reasonable prices, and was great.

    Wonderful selection of tapas. Many vegetarian choices. We arrived at 7 pm and things were quiet. By the time we left at 8:30 pm, the place was full and lively. There was a combo playing up front during the whole evening; if you want a quiet place to talk, sit in the back.
