Went to the Landing tonight and was very displeased. For one the customer service is summed up in one word.. Rude. I walk in the door and there is only one couple in the whole restaurant eating and I asked "are you guys open, or about to close?" And I'm hit with "of course we're open, if our doors are... More

We stopped here after the trolley tour and a broef walk on the riverwalk. From the outside, it ressembles a home in New Orleans. I was hesitant to enter for lunch, thinking it would be pricey, but, was pleasantly surprised. My daughter and ai each had a dandwich and a side. The total, with tax and tip, was just under... More

I recently took a group of 30 people here for dinner in their upstairs dining room where they had also set up a bar for us. The food and service was superb. I'd definility return (again).

Walked by here yesterday and admired small 2 seat bistro tables on balcony, but we were 4... Got rid of the kids (!) and came back for nice lunch with million dollar view. Panko breaded salmon cake BLT and house chicken salad both satisfied, especially with tossed greens in white house vinaigrette side. Excellent server. Might have to stop back... More

The restaurant is right on the river so you have a great view of the river from some tables. The food was delicious. I had the chicken bacon sandwich and a salad. The citrus vinegarette was awesome. We also shared the potato skins. They were delicious! Great portions of food and very friendly staff. Service was quick and the prices... More

Our last minute day trip to Wilmington culminated in our hungry family walking from a parking garage straight to the waterfront for dinner. It had gotten chilly, we were ready for a good meal -- no one felt like walking around or taking the time to check TripAdvisor for somewhere to eat so we winged it (usually not a good... More

Had a lovely lunch with a friend - we were sat on the outdoor balcony overlooking the River walk. Our server was nice and friendly, our food was delicious, and it was the perfect atmosphere for a girls day. We really enjoyed our experience here and are looking forward to returning!

As a couple, we just had a fabulous Valentine's Day dinner. We booked the table on www.opentable.com and were taken to a table for four in the upstairs room. It was perfect, and we were thankful we didn't get seated at the nearby two-tops which were very small. The waiter, Tyler did a terrific job. We had craft beers, shared... More
