Two of us had the salmon and it was very good. The other two had the scallop dish and both did not like it. One said all the scallops were sandy and gritty, and both said the rice and scallops really had no taste or flavor. They should have sent it back but no one wanted to make an issue of it. Overall we did enjoy ourselves tho.

Hello GailS, Thank you so much for sharing your experience! Although I am happy to read that half the table enjoyed their entree, I apologize that the other half did not. I do wish this was brought to our attention at the time of visit, because we would have never considered it an issue! We want all guests to leave satisfied. I hope you and your guests return so I can formally introduce myself to correct this matter. In the meantime, it has been brought to our Chef's attention. Thanks again!

Food was very good but the service was horrible. I had a party of three and witnessed 4 other tables that were seated after me enjoy their entrees. After receiving the appetizers the main course took roughly 40 minutes to come out. The waitress was not apologetic at all when I ask what was taking so long. The “acting manager” who was also waiting on tables came over to explain that the courses were sent out at a reasonable time. The cocktails were watered down and I had to send them back twice.

I will never dine here again and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. By far one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had.

Thank you for taking the time to review! I am very sorry to read you left upset, as I was the manager who introduced myself & wished to address the issue that evening. After checking the ticket time, it was discovered that the time between your finished appetizers & served entrees was exactly 22 minutes. We typically aim for 15 & under ticket times, but a 14oz well done bone-in steak takes a bit longer (cont.)

Great service from our server. Front desk host was not very attentive and I had to wait extensively while others were sat ahead of me (the rationale was they had reservations, but I also arrived before them and said I was ok with sitting in the non-reserved area). I waited for 15-20 minutes without getting a table.

Food was just ok - had lobster balls (mushy without much flavor), mushroom with pasta (delicious), and a dessert (eh). My boyfriend had wings (flavorful), and steak that had no flavor (salt or otherwise). Cool ambiance, beautiful venue, would maybe just try new dishes next time.

Responded on March 11, 2019

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Newtoart! I will definitely reach out to the host who worked that evening, but I can assume that the 15-20 minute was due to Friday being a show night. We typically get booked & cannot guarantee seating without a reservation. However, we always do our best to accommodate every guest so I am happy we were able to seat you! I also hope you return to try another dish that is more to your liking. Thanks again!

Overall experience was ok, food not worth the price fir what they give you. I would not recommend this place due to having to pay for your own parking inpaking garage. The restaurant should validate parking!!! When I asked they said no sorry we never do that, so after spending a fortune on a mediocre dinner, then I had to pay an additional fee to park. Not worth it!!!

Amyz, I apologize that our food did not live up to your expectations. Our Chef does his best to use the freshest ingredients to prepare creative dishes that reach a large audience. As for parking, it is free on the streets after 6:30pm in the City of Wilmington Mon-Sat, free on Sundays. Although we are conveniently located around the corner from the parking garage, we have not been able to validate parking due to negotiations & apologize for the inconvenience. I do hope you visit again!

Some of the food weren't properly cooked. Steak was supposed to be medium rare, but was overcooked on the outside and undercooked on the inside. My wife had squash as a side dish and it wasn't sufficiently cooked.

We noticed that a man at the table next to us returned his steak to the kitchen.

This used to be a great place to eat, so the meal was dissapointing.

We met friends we hadn't seen in a long time. The place is nice, clean and incredibly easy to get to. Parking is ideal. Our waitress was very nice and quick. The food was ok. I expected a lot more for the prices. The appetizers were dry(poor pork belly) or cold. My husband ordered the ribeye with lobster tail. The seasoning on the ribeye was all over the place. One bite was bland and the next bite packed with salt (I had the ribeye too). The lobster tail had NO seasoning and NO butter. How do you serve lobster tail without butter? Two of us got the molten cake for dessert. Mine looked like someone took a chunk out of it. It was half a cake. The other one was perfect. Really could have used some ice cream or something. By 10 the dining room was empty and the wait staff were all congregated near our table giving us dirty looks to leave. They were constantly walking by our table over and over again even though they weren't doing anything. The hostility was very apparent and it became very uncomfortable so we took off. Probably won't be back. No one serves ribeye anymore so I was so looking forward to it. It was a bummer.

I was pleased we could park in the Courtyard Lot with entrance in the block before on 11th. Cost $5 for dinner time. I felt some of the food was a bit expensive. $34.50 for a small filet. And it was pretty loud in there with low ceiling. But people were pleasant and pretty efficient.

Hi JamesR, We understand parking in the city can be somewhat of a hassle, so we try to work with the parking garage in order to make it accommodating for our guests! I believe the filet you are referring to is the 8oz. The cut we use is of high quality that brings the menu price to $34.50. If you visit us on a Saturday, you can order that same filet for a discounted price of $24! Hope to see you again soon. Thanks so much!

The food was delicious and the service was good. We had to ask for the pre theater menu which had a nice selection. The problem came when it was time to pay the check. A number of tables were checking out at the same time. There seemed to be only one computer for the staff to use to check out which caused some delays. We were almost late for the opening curtain. Surely there must be a better way.

We dined as two couples on Saturday evening. The restaurant only had two or three tables occupied. The servers were very friendly and quick. However, the food was fair, at best. Two of us had the Impossible (Vegan) Meatloaf. Both people thought it was pretty bad and had a funky taste. Two had steak (one had Filet Mignon and one had a Steak Salad). The steaks were good. The French Onion Soup and Acorn Squash appetizers were good, but the Thai Peanut Soup was too spicy. The wines were very good. The prices are definitley overpriced for the quality and quantity of food. There was also a mistake on one couple's bill-charged for two of the same item which was quickly corrected. Based on the almost empty restaurant on a Saturday evening, I guess we are not the only dissatisfied customers. This was our first and last visit.

I dined at Tonic early on New Years Eve. Overall, it was pleasant. Our server was attentive and the atmosphere was somewhat nice. The price of the food did not match the quality. It was okay, but I would not rave about it. Good location if you are staying in the city. Parking garage is convenient and close. Appetizers were much better than the entrees.

Wilmington doesn't have a lot of good vegetarian food. We appreciate the changing and creative vegetarian options at Tonic.
