    Pinpoint offered one of the best meals I have ever had dining out, and I am an award-winning, vegetarian cookbook, author! As vegan gf diners, we rarely find a restaurant that is both satisfying and delicious. Instead, we often walk out hungry and disappointed. I love that we could find delicious vegan protein in black-eyed peas and fresh pea hummus, which was exquisite. All the roasted vegetables were delicately seasoned and very flavorful. and the side portions were so generous that we could hardly finish each dish. We are going back for more tonight since it is so hard for us to find such extraordinary vegan gf offerings! Our waiter was also excellent helping us understand the options that would work best for us.

    Not a large menu, but each selection is well complemented and seasoned. A little bit pricey, but worth it in the end. Reasonable wine list. Will be back when back in the area.

    Had dinner on half price Monday - half price oysters and wine. The oysters were delicious and the Brunello needed a bit more time to breathe but overall just fine. The duck was very good. The fish dish was overly salted. Generally, we noticed PinPoint can over salt entrees esp. the fish dishes. Will remember for next time and just ask them to adjust.

    I had been looking forward to getting to PinPoint and they did not disappoint. Our waiter (I apologise I forget his name), was attentive but not overbearing and was extremely helpful. Food was excellent with the pork chop main being fabulous. I had the cheese plate for desert (go for all three!) and it was a great conclusion to the meal. We left satisfied but not over full. The wine list is well thought out and reasonably priced with a couple of gems that are hidden which are a fantastic buy. There is a great looking bar which we didn't try but it looked like it should be the perfect place to meet or to finish up your evening. I highly recommend PinPoint and look forward to going back.

    Service was unparalleled. We were offered certain fine touches that made us feel very special and important The food was a perfect hit on every dish and we tried it all! It was my son’s birthday so we were in for the cost but the overall value, between the food and the service made it all well worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant as you will likely not find a place more attune to proper hospitality and genuine delivery of top product than here!

    Great service to match the food. Our server was a perfect mix of attentiveness and no rush for us, so we dined. Our wine was delicious, the starter bread divine, and the meals we chose were wonderful. We enjoyed one each of the simple little $3 desserts, which topped off our meal without making us too full.

    Our second time to Pinpoint. Food was interesting and delicious. A decent wine list. Service was not as good as previous. We started with a dozen oysters and knowing what we wanted, put our entree order in at the same time. Waiter said he would have them delay prep for time to enjoy the oysters. Entrees came out almost immediately upon finishing the oysters. Preferred to have time before feeling rushed to start the entrees before they cooled. Enjoyed sitting at the bar while waiting for our table (we were early). Bartender’s very professional.

    We heard outstanding things about PinPoint, but it didn't meet our expectations. Although the quality of the ingredients and the taste of the food is terrific, the portions are too small. If you are hungry, don't expect to leave with a full stomach. My drink (the Cosmonaut) was gone after just five small sips. If you're seeking to spend a lot of money on a nice dinner in downtown Wilmington, you may as well go to Tarantelli's or Manna.

    We have eaten at PinPoint several times. This was the best ever! Everything about the evening was exceptional. The Bakes Oysters were excellent. My wife had the chicken and I had scallops. Wonderful. The apple fritters and Port were great. Drinks were exceptional as well. Our server highlighted a truly wonderful experience.

    Very expensive for very little quality. We had beet salad that was bland. My boyfriend had the beef bolognese which he said was terrible. I had the mushroom steak for $30 and it was ok but there were more potatoes than mushroom. $17 for an old fashioned which was really just a shot with a lot of ice. Usually enjoy farm to table but there goes $140 down the drain.
