Amazingly fresh and well prepared food was plated to be inspiring. Our waitress, Amanda, was fun, talented and helpful without being ostentatious. Ambience was soothing and eclectic which made the whole experience even more delicious! I would highly recommend this dining to gem to anyone.

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!

Rx was incredibly sweet and for my boyfriends birthday they actually printed menus with his name on them. The server was knowledgeable of the food and was courteous when one of our drinks was disappointing. Will definitely be back for special occasions in the future!

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!

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.
