Why are restaurants in Wilmington all about the "views" and not the food? Deluxe, one of my favorites, closes up for good. Hope someone opens up a similar restaurant.

Really enjoyed Delux. It was a little pricey, but worth it. Had great food in great location in downtown wilmington and lasted good number of years.
Unfortunately they are out of business

We ate on a Sunday evening so the place was just about empty. I mean at 8:30 we were the second table seated in a rather spacious restaurant. So it was almsot like we had the place to ourselves and this had one drawback - the room smelled like cleaning product or clorox when it normally should hve been filled with sent of a hundred warm dishes of beautiful food.
Eventually we got used to the smell of clean' or it wore off, and we enjoyed a very nice dinner and bottle of wine. The steak had a great taste, to slightly grainy, the fish was very good, the shrimp tempora was plenty, and my Deluxe salad was very fresh.
I recommend the place, just go on a friday nite!

My wife and I have dined at Deluxe on two occasions and both times were a delight. The service was excellent and the meals were excellent.

A comment about the service. Our server was always near and ready to assist but never a bother about hovering over the table.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We shared appetizer, salad, and entree. To tour the menu and enjoy a delicious meal, share several things.
