Overall our experience was excellent. My pork chop dinner was wonderful and my wife loved her half chicken dinner. A generous portion and great sauce. The small plate special salad (Wedge) was just OK...not great and much too small for $13. The mango Creme Brulee was heavy, and I would never order that again. The restaurant was way too cold...

Wow! One of our go-to restaurants has slipped quite a bit... while the food was still above par, several menu items were not available... and then we get to the wine selection... we were presented with just THREE bottles of red to chose from... all sangiovese/chianti... explanation was they are revamping their wine cellar... REALLY! This caliber of restaurant should... More

Moro definitely delivered one of the best meals I've had so far this year. The restaurant was relatively quiet when we sat down, we decided to get a lot of small plates so we could try various things. The foi gras was spot on delicious, as well as the duck confit. I had a great glass of Pinot Noir to... More

We Love Moro. Always fresh and interesting food. Service is spot on and the wine selection is lovely. We enjoyed fresh grilled fish on our last visit with creative accompaniments on our last visit. I always buy the Groupons when offered but we visit often without them as well. Great restaurant in Wilmington DE

If you don't have the time to get to Philly and want an excellent foodie experience, Moro, is an excellent choice. One of my favorites is to do their tasting menu so that you can sample many of their small plates. A must if you live or visit Wilmington!

This is my favorite restaurant in Wilmington! I have never, ever had a bad meal at Moro. Their dishes are creative and service is always outstanding. I love that they have small plates so my husband and I can sample 3-4 dishes every time we go. The mixed drinks are always a hit and the waiter even gave us the... More

This restaurant frequently has Groupons, which made me suspicious they weren't doing too well. But it was full of other happy eaters, and the food and service were both excellent. We will go back again and again.

Moro has been a special event/date night dining destination since it opened, even though the menu has been reconfigured several times over the years. Michael DiBiasi's food is always interesting and always new -- except for the favorites. He often does "studies" of one thing served several ways, or interesting pairings. The wine list can be pricey but is excellent,... More

Cool trendy atmosphere. Food is super hit or miss. Comparable in price to nice philadelphia restaurants but quality not comparable. We went restaurant week though didn't get restaurant week menu- and service was very overwhelmed - most of the times whoever brought us our plates or a drink never said a word to us.

Moro is a great restaurant with high quality food and service. I use it as a special occassion place or a great place to take clients. Drinks are good and food is unique. A hidden gem in Wilmington.
