My food was delicious, and my server, Yasmine, was fantastic! I will definitely be back!
One of the best filet I ever had
Great food, Great Service, Great Price
Everything started out fine, with both the service and food, but quickly went downhill. We started with the raw bar sampler, which we thoroughly enjoyed - oysters with a basil mignonette and traditional cocktail sauce and freshly grated horseradish, shrimp, tuna tartare, and crabmeat seasoned with just a little too much Old Bay. Our server totally disappeared when we wanted to order a second course and another glass of wine. We were eventually waited on by a different server. Our next course wasn't so wonderful. The French onion soup, which is supposedly a "Tonic favorite" was way too salty, and I like salt. The companion's corn and feta salad tasted "old" - not fresh and crisp, and with stale tortilla strips. We were disappointed.
We continue to use Tonic Bar & Grille for business meetings and Happy Hours for work. This has been the best place downtown that is easy to get to, great food, great atmosphere, and staff is phenomenal!
When I made the reservation the open table website told me the only thing available for noon was a high top table in the bar so I took it. When we got to the restaurant there was only 1 table in the whole restaurant that was occupied and the hostess was at a loss as to why that happened. What’s up with that?
We came for a birthday celebration and had such an amazing meal. Our waiter, Michael was very helpful in our wine selections and an overall joy. He was entertaining, knowledgeable and professional. If we could pick our waitstaff every time we dined there, hands down he’d be our choice. The food is always superb from the apps to dessert. Tonic is my number one choice for a dinner for two to a celebration with friends, no matter the day. This place never lets me down.
Good service and with reservation, we did not have a wait. We were well taken care of although the meals were pricey.
Tonic has recently changed ownership, so I was a little apprehensive. But no need to worry. It was excellent. We had a Mother's Day buffet and it was great. We'll be back to try it again for a regular meal.
Very personable service, although server was sloppily dressed. Did a good job though. Food is solid. Filet mignon was outstanding, as was salad. Not too noisy, so we could talk and visit nicely with our friends. Would recommend and would return.
Great food, great service. Will be going back.
Great atmosphere and excellent service. The food was a little bland and overpriced but overall a nice spot.
Our server, Gabriella, was efficient and prompt. Plus, she knew the menu very well.
We went here before going to see Brian Regan at Hotel DuPont. Had a great time and the food was delicious! It took a little long for the food to come. But, overall it was a great experience!!
Chef Bradley was amazing. Cannot wait to return.
We had never been to Tonic. Excellent food. Wait staff was excellent.
Love Tonic, went there for Restaurant Week on Friday and was disappointed with my meal...first time usually everything is great!
We went for the Wilmington Restaurant week. Menu choices were good: enjoyed the smoked salmon mouse, blackened mahi mahi was delicious and the flourless chocolate torte was lovely.
Our waiter was very friendly and gave delicious drink recommendations, service was great! Would dine here again.
Had the fixed price 3 course dinner for $35 during restaurant week. Everything was delicious. Smoked salmon profiteroles with a cucumber salad, beef tenderloin en croute with asparagus, mashed potatoes and a Demi glacé which was to die for, and peach/berry brûlée for desert. One of the best meals I have had in the Wilmington area.
Food was very good. Wait staff very on top of things. Would definitely go back.
Appetizers and drinks were really good ! I’ll try the steak next time .
Everyone was friendly and courteous, this is our go too restaurant when we go into Wilmington!
Went for a pre-theater lunch with my honey of 50+ years. Nice place. Pleasant atmosphere; comfortable seating; efficient and very friendly service. Saturday afternoon lunch menu is a little limited, but perfectly suitable for the occasion. The food was excellent. Best burger (perfectly cooked to my medium rare order) and fries I've had in years!
We have always had a great experience at Tonic but Friday night was Theater night and the restaurant was extremely busy.
The shrimp came out of the kitchen pretty dirty and was sent back. The steak was over cooked and the table where we were seated
Was right in the path to the kitchen. Michelle did the best that she could considering how busy it was but our night wasn’t really that great.
Great option for pre-theatre dinner. They offer a three-course prix fixe menu but we ordered from the regular dinner menu. I enjoyed the walnut-sweet potato soup du jour and arugula salad. Service was efficient but not rushed.
It was a very nice place with a good menu and the service was outstanding. The food was very good and fair for the value
The Tonic Bar met our expectations again. The selections of wines, suggestions for new ones to try were spot on. We again had their fillets which are good to perfection. The dessert was off as we had the cobbler which was gummy and hid the taste of the peaches. We were not rushed, and wait staff made sure all our needs were met.
Food was great and our server was wonderful.
This is the first time we had dined at Tonic Bar and Grill. The food choices were good. We shared a cauliflower appetizer which was very tasty. The wine selection was good. The salmon was also very good.
Quiet night. They had 2 big parties in the back so waitress wasn’t as attentive but it was fine as we weren’t really in a rush. Limited menu but we were there for steaks which were excellent.
Michelle is great!!
What a lovely place. The food was delicious. The server was polite. But I doubt if I’d come back .
The Brussels Sprouts app was out of this world. We all had a great meal and will be going back soon.
Stopped in for a quick bite before a show at the Playhouse on Rodney Square. Convenient. We had several appetizers and all were great. Bar can be noisy, but the dining area was quieter. We will be back.
Service was terrible. Although the waitress (Michelle) was nice and friendly. The food took WAY TOO LONG to arrive, and only after we inquired about it twice. Once it arrived one of our four orders was incorrect. It was also quite difficult to just get our water glasses re-filled.
The food was also very disappointing. To their credit, once we voiced our concern to the manager, she did remove one of the four dinners from our final bill, and did offer complimentary desserts.
Great place for any occasion. On this night there was live music by the Light Up the Queen musicians. Great community involvement.
Food and service was very good! Place was very clean and had a nice open feeling in the restaurant. The only down side was the weather was cold and both the restaurant and the bar area were very drafty from the door being open and closed.
This is definitely not the same restraunt that blue fish once was. While the food is good I can’t help but think back to how good it used to be. Sure the new variety is great but I feel like the dishes may be hit or miss. The filet was great according to my fellow diner but my pecan crusted chicken sandwich the bread was over toasted and the Brie often over powered the dish. For a neighborhood bar and grill downtown it’s a good place but it’s far from the perfect date night it used to be.
A perfect place for dinner with friends. It is also our date night spot. Happy to be able to walk there, too. Food was delicious.
Excellent choice, food well prepared and delicious. Customer friendly.
