    We had great seats on a private balcony. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly but not pushy. The food was amazing from the pesto and arancini as starters to the halibut and braised shortrib entrees. Awesome experience!

    Outside seating on the River on a sunny spring Sunday afternoon made this a very special brunch. Staff was extremely attentive and friendly and suggestions were spot on. Bloody Mary was just average, but the She Crab soup was outstanding. We would definitely come here again.

    This is the best place for a filet and pasta. I have such a hard time deciding what I’m going to eat. I go to Wilmington at least once a month and I have to dine here and have Emily as my server! Emily is the best! Jason makes everyone feel so welcome always. It’s the best around!

    Loved the menu selections, so many options, that I would like to go back just to try more choices. I choose Rampefeller from the baked oyster list for an appetizer and a small plate option of smoked catfish & oyster pie. Topped if off with a great glass of Spanish wine from their wine list. Struck up a great conversation with dinners at a nearby table that are locals, that tells you a lot about a restaurant. Location was convenient to our hotel by Lyft or Uber. Wilmington is so lucky to have this restaurant as part of their culinary offerings.
