We came from Boston . tried this place and liked it so much we went back the next night!
We were there to celebrate a friend's retirement. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The ambiance was great. It was quiet enough that all 7 of us could talk across the table. The menu is very interesting. I love the variety of creative dishes. Everyone loved their food! We will absolutely go back as a group or just my husband and I as a couple. You can't beat the location either.
Delicious food. Have been to PinPoint for brunch and dinner. Best in Wilmington. My favorite restaurant.
Brunch: excellent service
The food and service was very good. Rustic atmosphere, quite loud the night we were there.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. All food is local and delicious! Great place for date night or a special occasion.
Great food, service and ambiance.
Love this place. My husband who is gluten free loves their in house made crackers. Our food was fabulous and so was the staff. Can’t wait to go back.
This was a brilliant experience with notable food and wine choices that tasted as good as described. We highly recommend the catfish over the grits. The service was excellent and it was overall a super value!
Thank you to all of the staff, just made the experience outstanding!
Very accommodating for my schedule. Many Thanks.
Above average food and service. One of Wilmington’s best restaurants.
My only negative is that we had a table by the front window and door with a bit cold for the ladies. next time we'll ask for a table away from the door. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Everything is friendly, top notch and buttoned up. Food selection is limited but everything on the menu is well presented and tasty.
Outstanding local food and awesome service! Highly recommend!
Wow, that was one of if not the best meal I’ve had in North Carolina. It was perfect.
Food and service was great! Will definitely dine there again.
Southern Living Nailed it! one of the South's Best up and coming restaurant! Would definitely dine there again. Great place to impress date!
As always, the food was amazing. Always the freshest ingredients and delicious preparations.
We have been here numerous times and usually very good food and service. The service was great on New Year’s Eve but The food was okay except for the dessert which was outstanding!
My girlfriend and I were passing through Wilmington on NYE and made a last minute reservation at PinPoint. We are both vegan and the restaurant staff was very accommodating providing us a vegan prefix NYE menu. The food was exceptional and the service was prompt and friendly. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.
We were delighted with the incredible food and excellent service at Pinpoint. Our meal was incredible, the cocktails delicious and our server friendly, knowledgeable, and super helpful with recommendations. We enjoyed every bite and every moment of our dinner. Thanks pinpoint !!
Everything was delicious. I was really impressed with the service and quality of every course we ate. I will be back!
Great find for Sunday brunch. Food and service were great. Our table had the catfish and grits, fried chicken biscuits, omelet and burger. Everyone enjoyed.
Pro tip our server gave us was to add an egg over easy to the fried chicken biscuit. Definitely took it over the top!
Also, the banana bread appetizer was probably the best I’ve ever had.
Looking forward to the next visit.
Awesome restaurant. This has been plenty of spaces over the years, and some of the best (Deluxe and now PinPoint) dining in Wilmington. Everything was cooked perfectly. The only complaint I had was my wife’s Mac’n’Cheese that came with the Fried Chicken was very underwhelming in comparison to other things we had. Other than that, fantastic meal, great wines. Didn’t get any cocktails but they looked good coming out. Very attentive service as well, very friendly and not over the top. Seemed genuinely enthused to serve us.
As always food was on point. The current menu is full of really subtle flavor pairings that beg to be paired with wines at each course. Chef Dean even stopped by the table to say hello and meet our friends from out of town.
Oyster the BEST EVER! I’d stick to small plates as the entrees were a bit muddled and way overpriced.
Matthew was great waiter! Food and wine very good! I would return. Be aware bathroom is not handicap accessible due to stairs.
We got there on time and they were ready for us - sat us immediately. Service was good with helpful suggestions. Food was excellent - a little pricy maybe but a good offset. This was our first visit and we would definitely return.
Food was excellent, portions we're ample, menu is pleasing, and service was spot on.
No complaints would recommend to anyone. Tried the Catfish grits. They were awesome. Service was the best.
Food and staff were great. Fun evening downtown. Will be back.
From the appetizer Broad-bean hummus to the entrees sea trout and flank steak the meal was fantastic offering unexpected and fantastic flavors
Nine of us recently celebrated a friend's birthday at Pinpoint. The server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Completely empty plates were proof everyone loved their food. It was delicious. Bonus: it was a Monday evening and all of the wines were half-price! Can't wait to go back.
Pinpoint continues to be on of Wilmington's best. Different choices for everyone and high quality across the board. Innovative dishes and nice people. Parking lot right across the street makes a visit to Pinpoint easy. Go and share small plates and save room for dessert. Nice bar with craft beer, fine wine and cocktails. I just had Sea Trout and it was very tasty. Enjoy!
My wife is scared of “Foodie” restaurants yet she finished her full meal before anyone else. Great place. A little noisy due to the hardwood floors and high ceilings.
Open area and acoustically deficient, food was good and prepared colorfully. Waitress was outstanding.
Love Pinpoint. Go to place with out of town guests.
We love this restaurant. The food is always seasonal, farm to table and masterfully arranged. Never had a bad meal.. but the noise level as way too much the last night we came. There were four of us and we literally had to shout at each other... it was really deafening. That is my only complaint, so I would suggest to go not on the weekend, but durning the week for a truly fantastic dinner..oh by the way.... I had the sweet potato curry which wasn’t a real curry and was out of this world...
Amazing food, great atmosphere. Only concern was the wait time for our dinner which took about 75 minutes. Not a complaint though because it allowed us to hang out and talk. Would highly recommend and will be back again!
