We have been to Moro many times and always have had some tasty and innovative meals here. However, the tendency to throw copius amounts of red pepper flakes into dishes with subtle flavor like escargot, scallops and tuna is problematic. We make it a point when we visit to ask for "the heat" in the dishes to be kept to... More

Best caesar salad ever and the croutons are made with polenta. Totally makes the salad. The main entrees are fantastic with something for every taste.

I first experienced Moro about 25 years ago. My husband and I lived close by and it when it came time to celebrate the Christmas holiday we decided to try the restaurant that was touted as fabulous. We were in awe of every aspect of our meal. It was quite pricey however so we thought when a special occasion arose... More

NIc find in the Trolly Square neighborhood of Wilmingotn DE. A little hard to find but worth the hunt. We (4 of us) had small plates and cocktails. Grilled watermellon salad was devine as was the foie gras was to die for. Great service, great wine list - a real gem!

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...

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
