The food was fabulous. Waiter Miguel was very helpful and attentive.
We were visiting Wilmington and had a made reservation 2 weeks prior to our arrival since we had read so many good things about this restaurant. We were seated at a table for 2 right outside the kitchen. The way this restaurant is laid out, not only did we have to deal with all the kitchen staff entering and leaving the kitchen, but all the other patrons entering and leaving the restaurant were passing our table too. After being seated for about two minutes it felt like being seated in the middle of Grand Central Station and I thought I was going to be hit in the head three times. I then asked to be seated at another table. They told me they completely booked for the rest of the evening and nothing else was available. There were empty tables for 4 which I fully understand they wouldn't give to us but there were also several tables for 2 where it appeared the dinners were nearing the end of their meals, yet there was nothing they could do. We had intended to have cocktails and full three course meals and we expected a bill north of $200. If there is one thing I've learned its if your going to be making that kind of expenditure you should be satisfied or please with what you were getting in return. It was not possible to be happy sitting outside the kitchen. When the hostess presented us with a take it or leave it attitude she was aghast that we left it and would actually walk out of their fine establishment. To say that we were disappointed with their lack of hospitality would be a great understatement.
what a wonderful place. I eat out a lot. Why I have not gone here is a mystery to me. Arguably the best meal I’ve had in Wilmington in 24 years. Everything was so good! Crab Cake and Heirloom Tomato’s perfect. I had the Chicken Breast crazy good. The desert was I would call it a Blueberry Empanada with Honey Ice Cream. Holy S@•t!!!
Delicious food and wonderful service as always! We will definitely be going back soon!
Delicious fresh food, artfully presented with an abundance of attentive staff. A great find in Wilmington.
Food was delicious but a little pricey for the venue and ambiance. Chardonnay by the glass started at $10? Duck breast $27 a la carte. I expected a bit more for the price.
Always a wonderful dining experience. One of our favorites in Wilmington
Always a great experience! Our favorite restaurant in town for sure.
Always good and the food is creative, fresh and typically great. Ambiance depends on where you are seated, this time we were near the entrance, toward the back is much better in my opinion. Not the cheapest place, but not crazy either.
Only "dark meat" fried chicken? Disappointed.No so stated in Star News article on available fried chicken.
Waiter was not very amenable at all. Not a happy camper-not having a good day. At first stated i could not switch from potato salad to mash potato with my white meat breast of chicken-then he cam back and said i could and brought me the lumpiest mashes potatoes i have ever eaten.
My companion ordered the pork shoulder cut which came out uncuttable with the knife available,seemingly raw( though the waiter insisted that it was medium cooked) hence tough as "nails" and essentially uneatable.
The cocktail and wine were just fine.
And all that for over $90
Just not a going out for dinner enjoyable experience!
Fantastic dinner and drinks. Superb service. We were a table of four and all of us were incredibly happy with our meals and cocktails. Great evening.
Wonderful food, & the staff was gracious and welcoming..my out of town visitors have already asked to go back on their next trip to Wilmington!
Rx went above and beyond our expectations. We looked at the menu online and were interested, but the actual food and experience bypassed that.
Mandy was our server and she was genuinely enthusiastic to share the menu and what Rx is all about.
We started with the Shishitos, Fried Green Tomatoes and.Tomato Soup...(Yes, we were hungry.) They were all fantastic. I have never had such fresh tasting and not greasy fried green tomatoes and the other dishes were fantastic.
We ended with the Snapper and Duck. Two more amazing dishes. Besides the duck and snapper, the fresh, seasoned vegetable sides truly enhanced the dishes.
We both wanted dessert, but we had filled up and passed - for tonight.
I do have to mention one small little service thing that really impressed. My dining companion had ordered an Arnold Palmer and about 15 minutes later, Mandy dropped off a pint glass filled with ice and a spoon to freshen up and cool off the drink if needed. Loved that!
Rx serves fantastic, elevated, incredibly fresh food! So happy we went!
Very nice atmosphere. Farm to table menus changes with availability of local ingredients.
Soo much better even the high end chain restaurants. Good to have Rx in Wilmington.
Outstanding service and amazing food! Would highly recommend.
The best designed drinks EVER. WONDERFUL Tomato soup a.nd chicken. I will definitely go back.
A very good example of a chef-driven menu with a clear emphasis on local produce, meat and fish. A skilled kitchen is matched with knowledgeable service. The wine list is impressive and has lots of reasonably priced bottles--the manager is the sommelier and is very helpful.
If you want to explore the possibilities of costal Carolina cuisine, this is the place.
One of best meals we have had in Wilmington. Cheese plate was exceptional-local NC artisan cheese that rival any we have had in larger more metropolitan cities. We will definitely return.
Hadn’t been to RX in a couple of years because last experience was not great. But, this time it was amazing! We had a booth right by the door but that did not negatively affect our experience in any way. The server was fantastic, the wine was perfect and our food was one of the best meals we have ever had. Good work local talent!!
Excellent cucumber/gin cocktail
Shrimp and grits were among the best I have eaten
I thorougly enjoyed my first experience at Rx. I liked my duck very much.
Food and service were very good. Be warned it is very, very loud. The server had to yell so we could hear him.
We came for Father's Day brunch. Great meal. Great service. Grits weren't warm, otherwise, perfect.
Rx is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington! The food, service and atmosphere is wonderful. The food is always super fresh and thoughtfully and artistically prepared. Every dish is bursting with flavor and uniqueness. We come to Rx for alot of events and they always prepare a menu that acknowledges our event! So nice!
Still one of the best restaurants in Wilmington, Rick still one of the best waiters in town. Great service, and good wine list.
No contest, best restaurant in Wilmington.
Given it's short menu RX always fulfills expectations on food quality.. this trip was no exception. Pork Chop, flank steak, and assorted appetizers were special as usual. I will say that on this trip we felt the service was off.. delayed food delivery, hard time getting waiter's attention when we wanted to leave. Much of this can most likely be attributed to a full restaurant on a Friday night which also raised the noise level a few decibels. Still RX is one of our local favs!
Best restaurant in Wilmington
Wonderful restaurant in downtown Wilmington with a Southern twist. Highly recommended.
As always, a great meal. We took Daughter, Son in Law, sister and friend and had a excellent meal.
Portions are extremely small. Not a place to eat when you are hungry.
It was my parents 50th Anniversary and we decided to goto brunch here. And it was above and beyond from Vincent’s service to the Farm Fresh unique scrumptious dishes.
In fact, they printed out special menus just for our party of 5 that read Happy 50th Anniversary at the top.
Rx is a treasure in Wilmington. Food was once again delicious. Service was excellent (attentive but not intrusive). Look forward to another visit with family and friends later this summer.
Excellent meal as always. Not super attentive service. Loud for casual conversations.
The service, special printed menu with my birthday as the heading, the drinks and bartender service, food, just everything was delicious and totally enjoyable. We will definitely dine there again, next time we are in Wilmington.
Exceptional meal. Cannot wait to return!
This our local special event location! We love the food, drinks, and atmosphere... Rick was our waiter and he made our experience very special.
Perfect as always!
