Supersizing delight

The tapas trio is delicious with 3 different selections of appetizer size delights... The entrees are also good from seafood the steaks. Also, the $14 free range beef hamburger is the best I've had and cooked medium rare!

I've had dinner and drinks at Starlight Cafe on more than 20 occasions. The food is hit or miss in my opinion and too expensive for the quality. I've tried the oysters, various seafood entrees, steak entrees, appetizers, the whole nine trying to find something that stood out and warranted the higher prices. Of all the dinner visits the best... More

If you want to impress, then make a reservation in this beautifully renovated old building in the heart of Greenville, NC and close to ECU East Campus. The dining experience is truly 5 star, reminiscent of a NYC experience.

The service was great as were the drinks.. The food was another story. The duck leg lettuce wraps tasted like chicken overcooked in a crock pot . The meat had a mushy texture and was devoid of flavor. The avocado shrimp rellenos were not rellenos . they were avacaxos cut in half with a minute amount of shrimp in them.... More

We have had dinner and brunch at the Starlight several times over the years. Overall, the cuisine has always been excellent, most of the ingredients come directly from their Farm, the service is above par fro Greenville, and the mixology and wine list are very adequate.

I was excited to try this place, the first and only decent place to eat in Greenville apparently. The prices are expensive, very expensive but I have noticed Greenville is an expensive place to dine out for the quality you get. Anyway, we went for lunch to get a feel for the place before we committed to an expensive dinner... More

The hotel recommend this restaurant as their favorite choice. We had salad and an entree. The Caesar salad was high and the garlic in the dressing was a little strong but good. We both had the shrimp and grits, best I've had! Fresh food and great atmosphere!

I have been to Starlight THREE TIMES for brunch. The first time, despite many empty tables, I was turned away. There was no, "Sorry, we're a bit tight, would you care to wait by the ...?", just "No, we're full". The second time, I was finally seated and my server was DELIGHTFUL, but the Eggs Benedict came out on a... More
