    Wonderful place, great quality food - a little expensive, but worth it. Drinks are to die for - especially the margaritas. Loved the nachos, but wished there was more cheese. Would definitely go again for a special occasion or date night!

    I reserved dinner for three for a night out with my sister and mom. We got there a little early for our reservation, I checked in with the hostess who seem to be very unhappy to be there. She was not welcoming, she addressed us as if we were bothering her and she did come across a bit rude and unprofessional. We eventually sat ourselves at a table on the patio, which we found out was a first come first serve but when I asked the hostess she answered as if I ask her for free drinks or something. The rest of our dining experience was very pleasant, our server was amazing and the food was good. I will definitely return but this place needs to reevaluate some of their staff’s attitude and educate them on proper customer service.

    I was so excited to try this place and it was awful. Atmosphere was odd, chairs were terrible, you had to lean way back and it felt like you were going to fall on the floor to have your back meet the back of the chair. The top of our table was so loose, every time someone moved, the table jumped. Food was mediocre at best! We got 2 different kinds of nachos (which was odd) with a kids-size serving of jarred salsa. We repeatedly asked for water to be refilled and our food came out before we were finished with our appetizers or got our drinks. Our side dish was forgotten. Our water was finally refilled before we got the check. Extremely disappointed!

    Server was slow. I was outside and got my soup same time as my rest of my food. Drinks were behind. Greeter with pink hair was rough. We stood there for 1 minute as she worked on her tablet & didn't it greet us. After she checked us in with no eye contact then yelled to the next person, how can i help you? As i stood there in front of her because i had no idea she was done checking me in. She literally had me standing there as she yelled for the next guest behind me. I assume she doesn't like working with the public because she did not smile nor was friendly. Your greeted should be typically bubbly and full Of Personality as the first impression of your place. Service was slow in general at the outside table.

    This was our first time at Del Pez - we were very please with the experience. The decor was a bit rustic but that was no problem for us. We were able to be seated with a few minutes of arrival. The waiter and staff were courteous. The food - yes the food was outstanding. We ordered tacos to go for dinner (as we were having the lunch as advertised for Wilmington Restaurant Week. in a word YUM!

    Extremely disappointed with the food and the service. The waitress did not listen to my order. When the food was served I pointed out to her that it was wrong. Instead of offering to fix the problem she looked at me like I had three heads. Needless to say, I wound up taking it home and throwing it away. Will never ever return to this restaurant. It’s a shame because the Wilmington Waterfront is very nice!

    I had a reservation for 5 PM for two people. We waited for 25 minutes to be seated after those who arrived after us had already been seated. Once we were seated we waited for an additional 15 minutes and not one person came to our table to greet us offer us water or even ask if things were OK. I was really excited to try this restaurant and we ended up leaving. We won’t be returning

    Nachos were great! Best part of the dinner for sure and would recommend. In our group, we had orders of both the steak and chicken fajitas and were so disappointed in them. Food was warm, not hot…not much flavor on the steak or chicken and would not recommend ever getting them if this is how they are served. Service was not great but was a holiday so would still try this place again based on all the great recommendations but sadly we left disappointed.
