Tasty, unique, amazing staff - always love a visit to Pinpoint!
Waitress was exceptional!
Food was excellent. As usual. Service was slow. We’re not typical Americans that like the courses stacked on top of each other. We like a more European paced service. Last night, however, wasn’t that.
We had apps and drinks at another place before getting here for our 8pm res. By the time the waiter made it to our table we were ready to order. Ordered a nice bottle of chard, the catfish (excellent!), the triggerfish (good), then proceeded to wait almost an hour for our food to get to the table. That’s not well paced, especially give the fact that we only ordered one course.
Fresh , local food with lots of flavor. Wait staff was very attentive.
The space is narrow and windowless. There was nothing really special about the overall ambiance and decor. The food service was a little slow though the quality was very excellent. Also the wine selection by the glass was somewhat limited.
Anniversary of which they did not recognize even though I included it on my reservation. Waiter was good but never told us his name. Sometimes he seemed too busy for this quality of a restaurant.
Great food. Fresh and local.
What a pleasant surprise, terrific. Food was excellent and the service good not be better.. we have already let some friends know of our experience... we will be back.
This restaurant was truly amazing! All of the main dishes were delicious and the appetizers were outstanding! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in a heartbeat.
Delicious food and great service !
Monday is best day to go 1/2 price wines and raw oyster.
My grandson ordered the vegetarian plate and the sauces were very bitter so he had to wipe off the potatoes and beets and cauliflower was very dry
Everything, from the drinks & food to the employees, was very good! The food, being farm to table, was excellent!
Loved everything about it! The food, service, and atmosphere.
Loved the butterbean hummus and shrimp wraps, nice by the glass wine list. Chocolate dessert with dandelion ice cream was divine!
nice dining experience - 1/2 off all wines on a Monday a plus! Chicken and Catfish dishes both excellent, and definitely go for the flourless brownie sundae to top things off. Large open space and high ceilings make for a bit more noise than ideal, but not that bad, at least when not filled to capacity.
Food is wonderful and innovative. Wait staff was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food and the smoked catfish was wonderful. Interior of the restaurant is pleasant, and we did not find it too loud. We will definitely return!
Very friendly and helpful service. Food was fantastic and the amount was just right.
We celebrated my husbands birthday here with friends for dinner and everything was amazing! Our server was AWESOME and the food was great! Highly recommend the restaurant. We will be back when we are in Wilmington again!
we have eaten at pin point several times and usually found everything to be very good.
the menu was very limited and what we ordered was not very good. we both experienced stomach
issues later. service was not great as we had to check on our food since it was taking so long.
Great food and great people!
One of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington. Food was excellent, as always. Creative cuisine with beautiful presentation. We had the beef, the catfish over grits (my personal favorite) and the pear salad. Service was superb. The noise level is very high making conversation difficult. It is a hard surface restaurant with no baffling. Conversation with the owner/manager indicated that addressing this problem is on the list which will make dining at Pinpoint more enjoyable.
Pinpoint is really great for fresh local cusine with flare. Service is fanominal. Lighting definetly sets the ambiance if the room.
I thought food was good but overshadowed by seating and table arrangement. Might as well been eating with the neighbors. Noisier as it got later. Chairs unfortable but as I said thought food was decent.
Food was great, local farmers provide food so you know it’s fresh.
Wonderful dinner! Will definitely return.
Our Feb 15 dinner was outstanding. Their pork chops are nothing short of special, the seafood special with scallops was excellent, and as usual the service from Don was perfect.
My partner and I were in your restaurant on Friday, Feb 15th, our server was great, food was really good and we enjoyed your restaurant. Thank you!
Food & services was outstanding! Perfect date night.
Excellent dining experience!
Excellent. From the Butterbean Hummus (yep, that's right) to the wine (Cab by Eberle), followed by entrees of Flounder and Ricotta gnudi and red beard vegetables (think pillows of cheese with veggies and a fun sauce. Just a really fine meal.
Service was excellent, friendly, professional and not too cloying.
Second time at Pin Point and both times have been good experiences.
One of my favorite restaurants. Great food and ambiance
Unique dishes. Always a pleasure.
The food was excellence; I don't think I have ever had catfish as delicious as I tasted at PinPoint. The wine list is not overwhelming and has a good selection of whites and reds. I saw a lot of reviews talking about the noise level, but honestly, it didn't seem to be very loud at all. It's not a very large space so on a jam-packed night maybe the noise could be a problem. The service was excellence, and we were seated right away. I would take any friends or family from out of town to PinPoint.
I think their food is simply impeccable. The creativity of ingredients is thoughtful. One of the best restaurants in town.
The food was fantastic. Our server was very helpful. We were very pleased with the wine selection. Highly recommend. The steak and short ribs were fantastic
Food was great. Service was good. Noise was extremely loud and it was only half full.
It was so noisy! We have been to Pin Point before and always enjoy the food. OMG- It was so noisy that our friends commented on it. We all enjoyed our food and the terrific service. We will return - just not on a Thursday night!
Glad we tried Pinpoint. The food was really good. Enjoyed and will be back
We are senior foodies who enjoy good fresh food prepared well and with a different twist. We have never been disappointed and look forward to our next visit.
We were disappointed with our greeting by the host. We arrived at 6:52 for our 7pm reservation and were told we had to wait until 7 to be seated. However our table was clean and available when we arrived as were 2 other tables. Thus, we waited 8 minutes for no obvious reason and no explanation except that we arrived 8 minutes early. Fortunately, the food was excellent!
