We attended Sunday brunch. The restaurant had a very comfortable atmosphere and the servers and staff were very attentive and welcoming. I loved the deviled egg appetizer and the soft shell crab entree was delicious. For dessert I tasted the carrot cake and rice pudding with strawberries and both were outstanding. Will definitely return again, next time for dinner.

Yummy food, great service. Our family tried several brunch dishes... cinnamon rolls, strawberry French toast, eggs benedict, Monte Cristo, and mac and cheese. Lavender lemon tart for dessert. Nice presentation, everything tasted really good. Nobody was a huge fan of the French toast, a little too dense Maybe. Really good coffee, which is important for me :-) Will be back to get dinner!

Wonderful flavors, terrific use of fresh local foods as we enjoyed greens, strawberries, carrots, radishes, spinach and more. Superb food. Excellent service. Duck was one of my husband's favorite preparations of duck. My flounder melted in my mouth, with wonderful flavors completing the dish. Rice pudding desert was delicious, with Carolina grown rice, even. Highly recommended.

i was a first=timer to rx,having been recommended by local wilmingtonians,
it did not disappoint.my server, amanda was very nice,friendly and very helpful in explaining the dishes to me upon my request.from my before diner drink, a delicious bourbon-based gingerbeer concoction to my appetizer of porkbelly and grits everything was delightful,the porkbelly appetizer is among the best ive ever experienced,and thats saying a lot.
the main course of braised pork shoulder( in nc you are in hawg heaven) was awesome, dont need a knife here,it falls off by the forkful,sublimely braised and cooked to perfection. I was dining alone so without the benefit of conversation i found the noise level moderate, there were a few birthday parties going on, the decor is nice ,spare with paintings hung around the restaurant that were both colorful,fun and for sale too. apparently some of them are by the owner-chefs wife/partner as well.
overall i really enjoyed rx and will happily go back when in wilmington next winter.

How they create dishes with so many complex flavors is miraculous. Even a simple deviled egg takes on a new character. The staff is well trained & friendly. Just wish they would return the crispy pig ears as a regular staple to the menu.

Made reservations, was placed in a noisy, small table about a foot away from other guests on each side. The other tables server would place their butt towards our plates while he took their order. We asked if we could move to a larger booth, or somewhere w bit more peaceful. There were several open spots, and we had arrived early for a reservation made in advance. She said no. Disappointing.

This was our second visit to RX. The first trip was pretty excellent. The food was definitely worth the trip (an hour and change from my house), and the service was on point. This second visit had a lot to stack up against, and I have to say they excelled once again. If I had any complaints at all, it would be the noise level in the place took away a little from the experience. Not sure there's anything they can do about that, and the food and service more than made up for it.

This was the loudest restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. The food and service were great, but we couldn’t hear our server or talk to each other. I developed a headache from the loud level and couldn’t wait to get out of there. It was such a shame because the food was fantastic but the four of us had a miserable experience. We will not go back. We would have enjoyed dessert and drinks, but we practically ran out the door.

We were a group of 4 celebrating my husband’s birthday. Vincent was excellent and so personable as our server - very sensitive and accommodating with our meatless requests for Lent. We always love brunches and dinners at Rx. Vincent made it especially fun, and our friends likewise were 100% enthusiastic. Best wishes!

I made a reservation after a recommendation from a local friend. The hostess was extremely accommodating when we arrived, since I selected 4 instead of 5 guests on Open Table. She was quick to set an extra seat at a table, without it being awkward. Totally my fault, so I took that seat and it worked! We ordered the biscuits with pimento cheese as an app - delish! We tried a few different cocktails, all which were great. I had the shrimp and grits for my meal and it was one of the best I have had. Overall, great service, food and atmosphere!

I have to say that Rx is just getting better and better!! We had the deviled eggs for an appetizer and they were just so delicious and fresh tasting. They gave me gluten free cornbread due to my food allergy and my husband had the biscuits. My cornbread was amazing. My entrée was the flatiron steak with root veggies and they made it gluten free for me. It was the most delicious steak I have ever had and even better the beef was North Carolina quality beef. My husband had the shrimp and grits and he loved it as well. We will be back very soon! Oh yes, the service is the best!
