    Wow! Another amazing experience at Seabird. No wonder Dean Neff is James Beard nominated. He’s created the most delicious and interesting food, assembled a gracious and knowledgeable staff and set it all in the most beautiful and comfortable atmosphere. Not only that but on a Very busy Saturday night, he could not have been more engaging and pleasant with our table. My friends were blown away by their first visit. 10 stars

    Seabird never disappoints! Dean is so creative with his menu selections, it's no wonder he is a candidate for the James Beard award. The service is outstanding as well. If you like catfish, you'll love the catfish and oyster pie and the smoked catfish and grits. Everything on the menu is delicious. Dean also makes the best chicken liver mousse.

    My first time at Seabird , as soon as you open the front door ,you can feel a great energy with lots of people enjoying theirs drinks ,and, a lot going on. Than, when you step into the dining room , you can appreciate the refine interior decor , modern , with slight accents of Barocco ,very elegant . We were welcomed by our server Jack ,his professionalism stood out as soon as he introduced himself ,to than explain the dinner menu in a way that i was t so taking by ,that i let him choose my appetizers and the main entrée . High quality ingredients with intense flavors , the dishes presented themself like portraits ,very difficult to choose what was the best part of the all entire dinner ,but the desserts were a great way to end this great dinner experience. It was my first time at Seabird ,but........ it won't be the last one.

    I can’t think of a single thing to say about our dinner and service last that would be anything less than fantastic. From the servers to the head chef, the ambiance, every bite- everything just got better as the night went on! I can’t wait to go back!

    Fabulous meal from the moment we walked in the door. Food was top notch, service was perfect. The chef stopped by at dessert and offered an extra treat because our entree’s were slightly delayed due to large group in another area. Absolutely fabulous! Will recommend to anyone and will definitely return!

    Seabird is now a mainstay in our trip to Wilmington. Everything about this place is perfection. From the amazing service, to the gorgeous contemporary and simple atmosphere, to the delicious, well thought out dishes they offer, this place is always an 11/10. We sat at the chefs table with James Beard affiliated chef, Dean Neff. He took great care in explaining each menu item to us, pointed out his favorites and even sent us a little treat while we dined with him. Thanks Dean, you’re the best! Sean was our server and he was a delight! Very knowledgeable about the menu and had great recommendations. We will certainly be requesting him next time! Seabird is fantastic and anyone in the area should spend a couple of hours here. We’ll see you guys soon! ✨
