I have heard that The Bento Box is the place where celebs who are in town filming go for sushi. I hope they get better service than we did this past weekend. Our server kept disappearing, and we couldn't get drink refills in a timely manner. And the sushi? Well it was okay, but pricey. Think we will stick to... More

This place is my 9 year olds favorite restaurant in Wilmington. We sit at the Sushi Bar and enjoy the show. Serious food, friendly and consistent service, and people chefs that care about what they are serving. Quality, quality, and quality!!

Have dined at the Bento Box for both business and pleasure. The service and ambiance are great for being in a strip mall type building. They have done a lovely job with the outdoor seating. Best of all the sushi is top notch and ipleasant to the eyes.

I have written reviews for the Bento Box before. The great thing is there is usually something new to experience at each visit. We almost always start with the Crab Salad. After this Chef Lee told us he had just received a 250 pound tuna so we had a wonderful plate of sashimi, but what made it so special was... More

I have been to the Bento Box 3 times since they moved to the new location. They consistently offer great sushi and have a really diverse roll menu and the nigiri is always fresh. We had a wonderful, attentive waiter on this visit. The Bento box is always on my list of restaurants when I am in Wilmington.

Having visited the Bento Box, once before we expected to come dine in a great atmosphere with a wonderful server. This expectation was out the window almost immediately into our dining experience. After placing our drink orders- a jack and coke, a jack and sprite and their house mojito, it took about 10 minutes to receive these drinks, and after... More

You will not be disappointed at all! Great place to bring a date, friends, or co-workers. If you don't sit right at the sushi bar, you can still see your food being prepared on the monitors around the restaurant. You must get the dessert pot stickers too!

My husband and I had dinner at the bar back in May and had a great experience. The rolls were very good and tasted fresh. Also, the drinks were delicious! We were a little suspicious based on the exterior because it didn't look like there was anyone inside, but once inside we realized they just have a dark tint on... More
