My girlfriend and I were in Wilmington over Labor Day weekend, and we wanted to get dressed up and go on a fancy date. Manna looked like it fit the bill, so we made some reservations and went to try it out. It was excellent. While we waited for our table to open up, we sat at the bar and... More

All I have to say is that if you go to Wilmington this is a must do restaurant. Bar none, I had one of the best meals I think I've ever enjoyed - anywhere. Mixologist Ian (yes, there is a noticible difference beyond a bartender) was worth just observing while I waited to order my delicious wine. Creatively unique salad... More

Manna is an upscale food and wine centric restaurant in downtown Wilmington. Great service-staff is entirely professional, but more than that are able to communicate their own enthusiasm and excitement. Chef cleverly tests unique food combinations. Excellent wine list not without reasonable values. One criticism is the chairs--they're black plastic and are in extreme opposition to everything else happening at... More

this was our first stop. Drinks and starters. The drink menu was good, but the bartenders were better and willing and wanting to create drink on request to taste, that makes drinking fun. Had to order beard and butter to munch as we drank. Surprisingly, the bread was awesome and the butter was fresh churned and also came with some... More

Maybe it was because it was Labor Day week-end and it was crowded but I was pretty disappointed in this restaurant. Service was ok. They manage to bring out the wrong salads for two in our party of three. They realized their mistake but the salads were half eaten by the time they did and offered to get the correct... More

For a special evening out, Manna definitely fit the bill ! Pre-dinner cocktails were superb and it was followed by a equally fantastic meal prepared with local ingredients. I would absolutely go again our next time in Wilmington.

Manna has great atmosphere and the food was sensational. My martini with lavender infused vodka just perfect my meal. Our particular server was not versed in the menu and didn't really seem sure about anything, however we still enjoyed ourselves.

Great food and very good service. This is NOT to be missed. We were walk-ins and they seated us promptly even though they were booked.

Excellent food quality prepared with unique accompanying items. A bit pricey but worth it. Figure your apps at about $10 and entrée about $30. Drinks are average. Great presentation and flavors, and some unusual dishes. loved the pork belly app.

It was recommended to me as one of the best restaurants in town, and it did not disappoint -- creative cocktails, seasonal fare, cute atmosphere... we ate copiously, and well.
