The food was OK. I thought the beef selections were to few. The service was good but not as timely as I was expecting. The table wobbled and was annoying for that. I was expecting really good and got just OK.

We were very disappointed in Columbus Inn. Our "lunch bunch" group of 8 came on Wednesday and found the food to be subpar (most of us had crabcakes that we thought inedible), and the service to be poor. We go to lunch once a month and have removed Columbus Inn from our list.

The only issue that I have is that I reserved outdoor seating and was seated on the inside instead. This is the 2nd time I’ve had an issue with seating. The first review I left was never addressed, so that stinks. Otherwise, the food was awesome and our waitress was the best.

We sat at high top in Bar. It was Friday evening so it was quite energetic. Food was excellent as well as creative. we had one sandwich, poutine (can't find that everywhere) and one pizza along with salad and some apps. Fun, a bit loud, but was a great evening. We love sitting in the bar when it is not too packed.

The lamb chops were very tough. When I told the waiter, he suggested a sharper knife. A machete would not have helped. Never again!

My friend and I ordered the cheese platter for desert. We did get the small size, but still were surprised that there were just three relatively small pieces of cheese. There was plenty of toasted bread, but we didn’t want bread. The cheese seemed overpriced because there was so little. Also we had to wait 15 minutes to get the cheese.

Also, our server was good, but he called us “dear”—I find that offensive.

Overall this meal was amazing. We started with the tuna roll which was fantastic. I had the scallops and my boyfriend had the salmon both were really good! Dessert stole the show. I had the fig panna cotta and my boyfriend had the chocolate cake and they were incredible!

Food was delicious however the service was very very slow. When we sat down initially after waiting 10 mins we inquired as to who our waitress was and a few minutes later our waitress showed up and both the manager and waitress were very apologetic and explained that there was a mixup. We understood and proceeded to order drinks. Our appetizers came pretty quickly and the entries not long after. However once we completed eating our dirty dishes sat on the table without being cleaned for a good 20 minutes. After they were finally cleared, the silver was reset for dessert. After 15 mins of waiting the waitress returned to the table and indicated that our desserts should have been out by now so she would check on them....10 mins later they were served. Unfortunately the poor service clouded the outstanding food.

Always superb dinners. Friday night during Wilmington's restaurant week proved to be even more inventive with a fixed price menu that was fabulous and made it difficult to decide what to order. Thanks again.

I respect the establishment for the decision to not downsize dished just because it was restaurant week. The same creativity and excellent execution was the standard throughout the meal. I appreciated this and have been there before and will continue to go there and recommend it to others.

This was a get together with friends. One friend I had not seen in two years. The Monday lunch hour was relatively quiet. We opted for lunch on the later side (1:30) and the other tables looked like friends getting together as well. At this particularly day (a Monday) and hour, the customers were on the older, retired side. Our service was good. We never felt rushed. In fact, we stayed for another hour at the table after we paid and never felt a push by the staff to leave. The food was fairly priced and good. I had a flatbread pizza and the crust was crisp the way I like it. My friend had a crab cake sandwich that she declared to be very good. The other friend had a salad topped with Ahi tuna that looked perfectly cooked. The wines and drinks were reasonably priced. The wine by the glass selection had a good range and variety. I would recommend this place for lunch or dinner but I think it's wise to make a reservation. I've seen the place very crowded on Friday evenings and during the holiday season. I am certainly going to be back. The location is good for my North Wilmington friends and for me (I am in PA) and the site parking is usually not a problem.

Very charming restaurant with good to very good food. However, Our waitress was very cold and a bit snippy with us. This is a hot button issue for me when I’m paying so much for a meal. I expect a sever with much less of an attitude. I will be returning bur if I am seated In her section, I will be asking for a table in someone else’s section. Very upsetting to be treated like that.

Easter Brunch was absolutely delicious. They never ran out of food. Service was great. We had to ask they turn off the TV (so inappropriate). Music sounded like it was for a young crowd--would have preferred something a little more subdued. This was my 4th visit for brunch and would go back again--any time!!
