We were excited to visit Rx Restaurant due to its commitment to using local products. We had the smoked fish dip, the shrimp and grits, the duck breast, and finished it with a chocolate roulade. We also enjoyed a couple of cocktails (we highly recommend checking out their cocktail menu). We enjoyed all of our items, and especially the smoked fish dip (made with local wahoo). The service was excellent.

As usual, the restaurant was loud since noise reverberates. But as always, the food was great and our server (Amanda) was wonderful. We've had her many times when we've been there and she's by far the best server we have had there.

Very Disappointed. We went there for Valentine's Day. First off, it is very loud in the restaurant. It's also rather pricey for that kind of a menu. My wife did not like her meal so we sent it back and order another, meal which was just alright. When our bill came, we were charged for the first meal we sent back and credit for the second meal. Didn't understand that reasoning since the first meal was more expensive than the second one. Not the decision I would have made if I was manager. We will definitely not go back the RX.

Outstanding service, portions were a little smaller than I am accustomed to, however the meal was amazing. The kitchen staff outdid themselves.

Then the desert brought this dining experience over the top.

Bravo, looking forward to seeing you all next time.

The food here was so incredible! The service was also outstanding. I feel like they just need a little ambiance spruce up. Seems like a lot of restaurants in Wilmington have great food, but need to spend a little extra on design.

This was our first time to Rx. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu is very original, a mixture of Southern charm and fine dining. We had the wahoo and the shrimp with grits. Both outstanding!

We did not intend to get dessert but ended up sharing the sweet potato pie, which was delicious!

Look forward to dining here next time :-)

We were very happy to find this place. My husband had meat and I had a vegetarian choice. We both enjoyed our choices. The only drawback was that it was a bit noisy. We will return on an off night when it might be quieter.

Second visit- dined there 2 years ago and food was much better. I ordered the pork chop (medium) and it was over cooked and portion was small and not very thick. Price is a bit on the pricy size. Sides were good.
The service was also good.
