Love the Frites

Love the Owners and the steak, ribs and frites. Also love the watermelon salad. My fave drink in the universe is the fresh lime gimlet!

Food ok. Not ready on time and not enough of breakfast casserole. Coffee wasn't offered and service was minimal.

My husband and I stopped by for leisurely evening meal. The food was awesome. Server was eager to please and very accommodating. Pricey but well with it.

We eat here for date night regularly and always enjoy the food. Sometimes hit or miss but overall very good. On a nice night the outdoor dining area is great.

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.
