Fried green tomatoes were delish. Person who had fried oysters said best she has had in Wilmington.
Another great experience at Brent's Bistro. Last Friday evening could not have been better with great service and spectacular food.
It was my first time there even though I live here and kept driving by-I never seemed to get there. The dinner was great and since we were there early, it was quiet and our service was great also. I WILL BE BACK FOR SURE!
Brent Bistro has become one of the best restaurants in Wilmington
With the addition of Ken as the manager this system and staff run very very smooth
The food was incredible, some of the best I've had in Wilmington. Would highly recommend!
My husband enjoyed his fish and I felt my oysters were toon salty.
I ordered the medallions of beef with oyster rockerfellar dressing which was very good. I had as sides a serving of tasty spinach & twice baked potato: the potato was good but tasted more like very light mashed potato’s rather than what I am used to for twice baked. They gave a good pour of wine. My waitress could have been more attentive but others in there were cognitive & noticed when I needed something so they took up her slack.
Always a pleasure and great food
Food was delicious as always !
Brent's Bistro will not disappoint! Delicious dining and attentive staff. Wonderful seafood specials
I had a yummy sautéed grouper dish
Highly recommend 😁
We went for our anniversary on a recommendation from our neighbor and so glad we did! Our reservations were at 6 and we were seated right away. They had a table ready for us in the corner. My husband had the flounder special which quickly sold out and I had the tenderloin medallions with oyster dressing - both were superb but my husband won the meal of the night. Service was also very attentive, even after they got really busy (it was a Saturday night). We will definitely be back!
Didn’t even get to eat there because my reservation wasn’t ready the people were rude and the people around were rude we took our money else where
Our absolute favorite restaurant in the Wilmington area. The menu is imaginative, Brent's kitchen is always spot on and has never disappointed. Our favorite wait person, Brad, is knowledgeable and always steers us in the right direction. Consistently excellent!
Outstanding food and service, will dine there again.
Great food at a great value! We enjoyed our seafood dishes. Interesting recipes and very very good. The owner even came out to visit with us and that made it such a personal experience. We will all definitely return to Brant‘s bistro.
Food and service were excellent. Definitely worth a try
We both ordered fish-two different types- and thought they were excellent. The creme brûlée dessert was outstanding.
Very good. I was surprised with the texture/taste of the mashed potatoes with the Beef medallions. Almost like instant?? Not good.
Beef was outstanding and the fried avocado appetizer is outstanding.
Excellent service, great food, love linen tablecloths
This restaurant can tend to be fairly noisy, especially if you're near a large table w/ 8-10 people (as I have been in the past). We went earlier than usual (6:30) & that tended to be better. By the time we were finished, it was noticeably noisier. We had a fantastic server! 2 of us got 2 different specials, & 2 ordered off the regular menu. We were all happy w/ our food. I got the special whole fried flounder, & it was superb. The sides - fingerling potatoes & snow peas - were mediocre. They are very nice about making substitutions.
The food is always well prepared and plated beautifully.......staff is warm and welcoming.....a treasure!
Brent a pleasure to meet you! Food was amazing, your staff was awesome. Thank you all.
Very nice menu and fresh fish. Great wine list, local beers and craft cocktails. Looks like a strip mall but very nice decor. Go and enjoy a Wilmington gem. You will return again.
We were thrilled to find another wonderful restaurant not far from our home in Harbor Island. Both our meals were delicious, our server attentive and friendly. I would love to see a larger 'by the glass' wine offering, but if that's my only suggestion, then I think you can know that we will be back to enjoy trying more items from the menu!

This dinner included our Brooklyn daughter and her boys, 4 and 5. Brent's took very good care to keep these youngsters happy and in their seats. They loved their pasta dinner and talked grandpa into a taste of his chicken and mashed potatoes. We drove from Leland, but it was worth the trip to see our grandsons enjoy the dinner.
I’ve got the worlds pickiest eater for a husband and this is his new favorite place! Steak was perfect and the flounder beyond description. Going back next week for birthday celebration!
Brent's Bistro is one of, if not the best restaurant in Wilmington! The food and service is outstanding every time. The wine list and bar service is excellent as well. You will not be disappointed.
Overall we had a great time and the restaurant was absolutely full. Unfortunately this meant we had a small table next to the door which meant it was rather cold. The food was excellent and we would recommend the snail appetiser and the rack of lamb and pork chop entrees. These paired well with an excellent pinot noir. The service was good even though everything was rather crowded.
The grouper was outstanding! It may have been a bit overcooked though. I am not a chef, so that's just my opinion.
Very good food, excellent service, nice menu, acceptable noise level. So so strip mall ambiance. That could be improved but overall a nice experience.
Excellent food. A great choice of food -- all excellent. And the prices are very reasonable. Our favorite in the area.
Best little bistro in town! Food is amazing. Never disappointed
As we have experienced in the past, it was great to be there again. We had a delightful evening with good food and a relaxed environment that had a calming end to a busy day. Thank you.
Had a great birthday dinner. Loved it. Will be back. Great service and loved the wine.
Our dinner was delicious! The chef made accommodations for one of our party who has celiac - we had called ahead and requested Gluten free Crabcakes. He made them for her without hesitation— definitely recommend dining here ! We always love everything. Haven’t had a bad meal here yet ! Some of the best seafood in Wilmington!
My wife has been wanting to go to Brent's and she was not disappointed. The food and service were good and quick and this may be our 'special' place going forward.
We enjoyed my father’s 93 birthday at this restaurant. The service and food were excellent. We enjoyed several different entrees and all were expertly prepared. I would definitely visit again when in town.
Our first visit to Brent’s Bistro unfortunately coincided with a Sunday night championship football game and a loud rowdy woman in a foursome at the bar. She and the TV were so obnoxious that we almost left before being seated.
Fortunately, we stayed and greatly enjoyed the excellent and well priced wine, superb appetizers and creative entrees. The small but well decorated space only lacked acceptable ambiance because it has no separation between the lovely dining space and the loud TV/bar with badly behaved patrons. Lose the TV and / or add greater bar - dining room differentiation and you’d have a great place for GREAT food, conversation with soft lights and music.
We will be back for the food and look forward to new magic that the chef may deliver.
Had a coupon for dinner but had also heard from others that this was a good place and we were not disappointed. Started out with avocado and seafood salad which featured a unique twist as the avocado was lightly fried (not greasy at all). A real winner. Had the beef and oyster napolean which was cooked to perfection. Service was attentive. The place is small therefore tables are close together and while not noisy it is not going to be a place for quiet conversation. It is definitely a place worth going and we look to return
WOW! Decided to try Brent's based on reviews and it did not disappoint! Had crab dip, tuna, salad, avacado appetizer - service was great, wine was great, food was great. We wanted to split the tuna and I wanted blackened and he did not - so they split it and prepared separately. What a great experience - we will be back. My new favorite Wilmington upper scale spot!
