My wife and myself have been to several fondue restaurants for special meals or just for date night. We enjoy both fun and different places for these occasions, and THE LITTLE DIPPER fits right in. We were serviced by Whitney who did a GREAT job all the through our meal from start to finish. She was very friendly and helpful knew what to offer and when to offer it (example there were having cheese and chocolate night and she asked if we were there for special or meal. Then helped with right dinner for the two of us). It was the middle of the week and the place was half full when we got there and when we left people were wait for a tables. We will go back again, and would will tell others. THANK YOU WHITNEY FOR A GREAT TIME keep up the good work!!!!
Great experience and food. Was a recommendation by a local and we really enjoyed it. Our waiter was awesome. He was very personable and took care of everything.
Little dipper is always good. The service is also well. Unfortunately groups of 5 or more should not be inside as the noise they make is too much for smaller groups to be able to hear their people talk.
My experience at Little Dipper is always a great one! The servers are always very nice and the food has never let me down!
I love the Little Dipper! Excellent setting, service, and food.
Great food and service.
We had a great dining experience however we did have to wait 30 mins. Past our reservation time to be seated.
It is an excellent restaurant and experience. The BEST Fondue restaurant ever. Great variety of sauces for dipping and cooking.
Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and atmosphere. This is not a "dine and dash" kind of dinner. Plan on at least 1 1/2 hours and enjoy it. It's nice because you have time to talk to your dining companions.
I love this place! My husband and I come here Every time we are in Wilmington. Always awesome service, and delicious food! Great date location!
Awesome restaurant, staff was super nice, food was great, the waitress was very helpful im helping us with our selections and the dessert was delicious. I’ve never eaten at a fondue restaurant before and were on vacation found this restaurant online and the reviews were excellent so we gave it a try amd extremely happy we did. Make a reservation and expect to be there about 1 1/2 to 2 hours you won’t be disappointed & The sangria is really good give it a try.
We make sure to go to The Little Dipper at least once a month just for fun. Service is always friendly and their seasonal menu is a fun way to mix things up. Always look forward to our next visit!
Great food and service. We love dining at the Little Dipper and will certainly go back.
Waiter wasn't knowledgeable on drink specials and it wasn't explained to us that the basic broth was still an additional charge (even though you have to have a broth to cook with?), but still overall great experience.
Good food and service
Our server Henry was great and the food was delicious! This restaurant is a must in Wilmington!
Great experience and different!!! Samantha gave great recommendations on food selection! Loved the place...
definitely I will return. This is a must if u come to Wilmington area.
I have dined at the The Little Dipper dozens of times...NEVER disappoints. The food is amazing, the ambiance is nice and it's great for casual dining to even celebrating special occasions.
Little Dipper is my favorite restaurant! We eat there multiple times each year, every year for my birthday. This was my first time doing the Ladies Night for my birthday with a a girlfriend and I loved it! The prices were perfect. Sometimes it's too expensive to go often but with the Ladies Night deal, we will be back! Only complaint was that we were asked to leave. We had been sitting down at the table still for 15 mind mom's eprobably after our check was taken care of. But we made a reservation for a nice dinner, and conversation should be a part of that. We understood that ladies night is busy but we also saw lots of empty tables. Little Dipper is still my favorite restaurant and we will definitely return! We just won't plan to talk afterwards.
One of our favorite places for date night. We absolutely love the food and the atmosphere.
Noticed this neighborhood gem while staying next door from out of town. The food was terrific, and the ladies Wednesday night special was extremely well priced. You can't beat fresh food and great service. Will definitely make a point to come here again when I am in town.
The service was excellent, the waitress very knowledgeable (and patient!), and we got just enough attention without being hovered over. Everything was prepared well, and served beautifully. We can't wait to go back!
I have been there a few times now, and I am always impressed with the level of service.
This is the best fondue restaurant ever! The service is outstanding. Our server was so knowledgeable and accommodating. She was helpful in picking everything from the martini’s to the dipping sauces. We had a combination of filet, shrimp and chicken. We added sashimi grade tuna which was amazing.
If you visit Wilmington NC, this restaurant is a must!
We can’t wait to go back! Thank you Little Dipper for this great dining experience!
We go to the Little Dipper for almost every special occasion! It is the best. Carrie almost always takes care of us and she’s fantastic! All the staff is so wonderful. ALWAYS listen to their suggestions with the special cheese! So yummy! Thy always have wonderful specialty martinis as well. I feel every time we go it is such a memorable experience. We can’t wait to go back!
We always love it! Delicious fit us in early too since we were just doing dessert!
This is our second time to Little Dipper. We enjoy it very much. My only complaint is that it is somewhat pricey for the quality of food. The cheese fondue and dessert fondue are great. But the portions and quality of meats leave much to be desired. The lobster was a little chewy and I guess it was my mistake ordering filet mignon because, honestly, no one should ever eat a boiled steak.
On my next trip, I may stick to cheese and dessert fondues alone.
The Little Dipper offers a variety of fondue with a great atmosphere found in downtown Wilmington. I would recommend this restaurant to those interested in a cozy setting who are looking for fun and good food.
Went with a group of girlfriends for Galentine’s Day. The service was incredible, the food was delicious, and the Valentine’s prix fixe menu was beautiful & affordable. (The dessert course came with a glass of champagne, which I thought was a nice touch.) I would absolutely go back for another prix fixe situation. Or just dinner. The weekly specials are fantastic.
Great place to fondue! Excellant service and food.
Our family had the best time at Little Dipper. We took our son there to celebrate his 20th birthday. Our server helped make it a very special celebration for us. Highly recommend.
Food was delicious and we had a great server named Aaron!! You will get plenty of food. Had a great time!!
The service here sets this place apart from almost any other in Wilmington. 5 stars!
The food was great however our table was not ready when we got there. We waited a solid 10-15 minutes only to be sat by the bar. Our server seemed to be having an off night as he seemed bothered by everything we asked him. Overall a little frustrating for a restaurant we made a reservation at.
My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed the time between courses for conversation. The waitress was very helpful in making recommendations and helping guide through the menu. It was very enjoyable. We highly recommend Little Dipper for anyone who enjoys a quiet dinner with a good atmosphere and being able to eat without feeling rushed as that’s the whole point.
Amazing food and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
We have tried the other big chain fondue restaurants, and I must say the little dipper is better in food options and in cost. They have more unique options of different dippers, cooking styles and cheeses. Not to mention the various fondue desert types. This is now one of me and my wifes' favorite date night places to go to. I would recommend reservations otherwise you may have a decent wait time.
