    Menu was great with numerous unique offerings. Food taste/quality/freshness superb. Service was flawless. Parking was a breeze. Ambiance was spot on for decor and setup. Noise level was high and for our table of 5 it was hard to hear the waiter when he was at the other end of the table. Some noise absorbing materials would be a good addition. Regardless we will be back.

    This was our first time dining at Rx, and we enjoyed the experience. We got a call a few hours before our reservation to confirm that we were coming and were asked if we were celebrating anything special that evening. I mentioned that it was my husband’s birthday, and that night when we were seated and handed a menu, a birthday greeting was across the top - a special touch and much appreciated! Service was great, and the food, on the whole, was quite delicious. For appetizers, we had the deviled eggs and fried okra - both great. The two couples ordered the same thing - shrimp and grits for the ladies and pork shoulder for the gentlemen. The shrimp and grits were delicious, but one of the pork shoulders was deemed a bit tough, though tastefully seasoned. Desserts were apple tart with ice cream and pear cake with maple frosting - yummy! Looking forward to a return visit!

    Outstanding dining experience ~ but we expected nothing less! Our waiter Miguel was wonderful from the moment we sat down ~ he was attentive when needed, and at no time were we rushed & the meal was wonderfully paced. Food, cocktails & wine was superior! I was so excited that we were there on a night when Rx had buffalo wing pigs ears on the menu! A treat not to miss treat! It was a perfect evening celebrating our anniversary!

    I took my wife here for her birthday. I made the reservation using Open Table and noted on it that it was her birthday. Upon arriving we had special menus printed with “Happy Birthday” to her written at the top. The service and food were excellent. We look forward to eating there again in the future.

    From start to finish, we enjoyed everything about this restaurant! The food selections were special and unique! My husband had the duck and was impressed how well the dish was prepared. He loves duck and not many places do it well! The butternut squash soup was perhaps the best I have ever had! We will go back....soon!

    What a wonderful experience! Delicious food with wonderful service will definitely bring us back for another occasion next time we visit Wilmington. There was a nice variety of items on the menu. My husband and I enjoyed different seafood dishes and sampled a taste of each others choices. Starting with a before dinner drink each list of drinks, appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts was original, creative, and a terrific treat to my palate. We we thrilled with a special visit from James Doss who was so kind to come out of the kitchen at a very busy time of the evening. He is from Goldsboro where we live, but now resides in Wilmington His wife's Art Work was beautiful and displayed for sale throughout the restaurant. We look forward to enjoying another great culinary journey when we go to Rx Restaurant next time.

    Our first time here after hearing great things, NOT disappointed! We loved just how “southern” it truly is. Creative takes on some old south cooking- like if grandma had spent some of her early years in the city and then incorporated those ideas upon returning to her simple country life. In case you’re wondering, that was intended as a MAJOR compliment... Incredible flavors, relaxed atmosphere, attentive service. Not a single complaint. Farm to table, and seasonal, of course. I recommend taking a chance on something you know and also something you don’t know. Everything on the menu really sounded fab so we had a hard time deciding. Pimento cheese and ham biscuits; shrimp and grits; Herbie’s falling apart pork shoulder over Dixie field peas; blueberry pie with burnt honey ice cream OMG... Go. Enjoy. You’re welcome!

    The service and food were the best I have ever received in Wilmington. I found the prices too steep for this city, even that venue. The restaurant looks wonderful on wood floors without a lot of linen showing. My kind of place. I'll return, but not often, due to their prices. I'll remember the meal and my server, until next time.
