    Not our first time to QB. Very nice meal. Waiter was a bit chatty and forgot several things ie bringing more water and bringing our cocktails on a timely basis. Otherwise a very good experience.

    Such a great dinner! Our server, Ed, took spectacular care of us, and made awesome recommendations. I had the Eggplant Parmesan. Not only was it the best Eggplant Parm I’ve ever had, I never knew Eggplant Parmesan could taste so spectacular! The red sauce is amazing, as well! Looking forward to next time!

    This is a nice little spot near the downtown core of Wilmington. Pros — usually not too hard to find a table. Cons: limited menu and the food doesn’t live up to its “snooty” attitude.

    Had a wonderful dinner at QB last night. We sat in the bar area so we could listen to the live music. The music and the ambiance was wonderful. I had the shrimp scampi over linguini. It was delicious! Our waiter gladly substituted the risotto for linguine. At the table next to us , they were having the pizzas which looked delicious. For the food, price and ambiance it is a total winner! Can’t wait to go back!

    Atmosphere is the best thing about this restaurant. Food was meh. Stuffed peppers app and the arugula salad were good. Masala chicken was dried hard, black pepper risotto had no taste. Short rib portion very small. Our server was very lackadaisical except when time to go. She literally took our plate before we were finished eating and we had to ask her to leave it. Then she took my drink glass out of my hand. Friendly, but very inappropriate service. IF I did go back, o definitely wouldn’t sit in her section, and I wouldn’t go for dinner. Maybe just a drink and a pizzette.
