Review would have been excellent but for the bones in the flounder!

A recent dinner here where everything seemed perfect, service, food and atmosphere. I ordered the flounder stuffed with crab imperial served in a lobster cream sauce which was very good - and not one bone. I was unable to finish both pieces of flounder, so I took one home for the next day. It... read more

I am very disappointed in this restaurant because it could be so nice--great location, so near my office. But, the food is poor quality and poor taste. And, the service was strange. I walked in with a colleague and waited at the hostess stand for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us--don't get me wrong, they did see us but just... More

So food is good. Karen is great. Not so sure it's the place to relax and enjoy. Had some issues with slow service and the restaurant is not usually full but they appear to have issues with handling traffic.

I have walked past Cafe Mezzanotte dozens of times, never realizing it was there. A business colleague suggested we meet there and I am glad he did. The food from appetizers through dessert was terrific...some of the best food I have ever had in Wilmington. Our group shared 3 pasta dishes to start and then shared a delicious ribeye for... More

We were pleasantly surprised when looking for a quick lunch near the Hotel DuPont... we had a nice table outside and a great lunch - I had a burger (not bad for an Italian restaurant) and my wife had a small pizza - excellent service

6 of us travelers with very little notice got a nice table at this place. We read the reviews and were a little apprehensive but it was close to our hotel and we were tired. We were thrilled with the menu, the service, the cleanliness, the food and the prices. Great cocktails, salads, entrees were large and delicious, wine was... More

I ordered the Canoli at this restaurant and it was absolutely delicious. When I am back in town, I will try the Branzino fish dish, which is highly recommended by the locals.

Horrible slow service and took 2 hours to get incomplete meals despite the restaurant being almost completely empty. We had to remind the server people were missing food. Came out when we were ready to leave. Some meals had obviously been under heat lamps because plates were super hot and pasta sauces had skin. Initial drinks took 20 minutes, we... More

Stopped in for a drink on a Saturday night. Neon sign in the front window said "Martini Bar". We walked in at about 9:35-9:45. We were greeted at the door, not with a "hello", or a "welcome", but rather with a "Are you here for dinner?" We indicated that we were not, and were only looking for a drink -... More

Came to this restaurant, on Saturday before going to the Grand, with high expectations after reading the reviews. Found the place cold, server was not friendly and food was average. The food was salty and service was very slow for s place 1/4 filled.
