Excellent meal, had the ahi tuna poke with chips, great flavor, and the smoked duck "moo shu," nontraditional but delicious and filling. Dessert was less impressive: the tiramisu ladyfingers still had crunch to them; the semifreddo (vanilla with lemon curd) was a great flavor, but frozen hard rather than "half-frozen."

this is the place to go with a group as everyone can order a couple tapas and everyone can share. Great creative drinks, cool decor and an attentive staff. Only negative is the parking but there is a lot right there and its 5.00 for unlimited parking.

Merchant Bar is fantastic! Amazing menu, great cocktails and super gorgeous space. You won't find a better spot for light bites and cocktails in Wilmington!

The best part of our visit was the wine. The food was spotty. The guacamole was good, but nothing special. The wings were dry and way overcooked. The pork crispy dumplings were not good. The beets were OK. Just ordinary. And the shrimp small plate was fishy tasting. So, overcooked. We have been here before, but will probably not go back.

Disappointed in the menu and size of portions (small).
Front door needs to be washed.
I was there last year and it was much better.
