“Top Choice for Wilmington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Quality cuts of meat to prepare on you own. Numerous choices for the cooking broths. If your visit is for a romantic dinner, ask for the alcove seating for two. It's tucked away and you feel you have the whole restaurant to yourself. They have a better than average wine selection and their chocolate martini's are the best. William was our latest server and he was personable and helpful. We visit one to two times a year for special occasions.

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Good food and our waitress was very helpful as it was our first experience at the little dipper. They could include a spinach artichoke dip similar to the melting pot. Overall pretty good.

“Love LOVE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Went here during a mini-vaca and was so impress with everything. Ashley our waitress was excellent and very informative from the fondue to sauces. If I lived near by I would go more, especially for ladies night. I love the fact its not a chain and have the special umph to it.

“Great for ladies' night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Wednesdays are ladies night here. You get a cheese fondue (with bread, veggies and fruits) and a dessert fondue (with fruits, cakes, and other yummy desserts). Great time for a bunch of your girlfriends and you to get together!
