    The only thing I can say that was wonderful was the service. Foods expensive quality is terrible. Do not recommend at all. Pork was dry. Fish was dry oysters way too salty. I don’t mind paying money for a good meal. This place was not worth your money.

    We have dined at Pinpoint several times from out of town, but on 11//4, we had a 2 hour wait for our main dishes. The chicken dish was dried out and the sides were burnt crisp, and the pork shoulder special had less than 3 ounces of pork shoulder. It was just a 44 dollar bowl of beans. The temperature in the restaurant was unbearably cool the whole 21/2 hours. It was a wasted evening! That will be our last visit.

    This was our first time dining at Pin Point, but will not be our last. The food was amazing, our drinks were made perfectly, our waiter, Devon, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, was attentive and very hospitable. We could not have enjoyed it more. We highly recommend Pin Point, especially for a special occasion.

    We were visiting Wilmington for the weekend, from NJ. We chose Pinpoint to celebrate our 12th anniversary and could not be happier. Everything was perfect. Our server brought us two glasses of bubbly when she heard it was our anniversary. So unexpected and kind. Service was extremely pleasant. Food was amazing. The pumpkin wedge appetizer was incredible. So happy we chose Pinpoint for our special day.

    We were quite disappointed overall. Pretentious and fussy are the keywords. The food is good-- very fresh, clearly farm to table, well-prepared. The service was not. Our server, who also appeared to be a manager, had quite an attitude-- snobbish and put-out. We were served the wrong appetizer. The entrees took an inordinate amount of time to arrive. A different server provides each course and there is not a continuous flow. The prices are excessive: $46 for a pork chop! The dining room is extremely loud with poor acoustics and no privacy. There are so many other fine dining choices in the Wilmington area; we would not return to this venue.

    The eggplant hummus with grilled bread was different and very good. There was a piece of plastic in the mahi mahi dish. It was handled by the waitress and manager very well. The dish was replaced. There was no charge for the mahi mahi dish and a free dessert was provided. There was a line of fat in the New York strip steak. I could not eat some of the steak. I did not say anything to the waitress because I did not feel like dealing with it. With that said the waitress provided great service and the manager was really nice. It is what it is. *If I could change anything about the environment I would turn up the lights just a bit, have some larger tables for a two top and make the bench seat not so high. The bench seat is much higher than the chair.

    Normally we love dining at Pinpoint. This particular time the food was not found to be of the quality we have come to expect. The noise level was very high to the point that we had difficulty carrying on our conversation. Service was great as usual but short staffed and thus suffered. Becasue this was the first negative experience out of about 6 dinings here we will go back but may look for an alternative first.

    We went to PinPoint for our anniversary. A cute little "happy anniversary" note was on the table. Once we were seated, our waitress brought over 2 glasses of champagne for the special occasion - at no charge to us. A nice welcome to the restaurant. My husband had the porkchop and I had a fish dish. Both were prepared exactly to our liking and were bursting with flavor. Everything was fabulous and we will definitely be back. This was actually our 2nd visit to PinPoint. The first was on the NC food tour - which PinPoint did a fabulous job with the food sample on that visit as well. It's worth the trip.

    Service was poor and seemed liked we were being rushed. Ordered a bottle of wine and there was no wine service offered, server just poured it off. Food quality was very very poor. Not what we’ve experienced in the past. Most likely our last time to dine here. Very disappointing evening indeed.
