The building is fabulous! Great ambiance, delicious food. The sushi and appetizers in particular. Try the avocado lobster salad!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington, but V Day was disappointing. Made a reservation on Open door days earlier. Got a call late the afternoon of 14th telling me there was a limited menu...four entrees only. One of those was a filet, but mine had a quarter inch string of gristle. Not good. My wife had the...

Made reservations for six and we were seated in a very crowded section which was extremely noisy, making conversation and hearing the server a real challenge. The mussel appetizer was outstanding bur it ended there. The paella was lacking...very little seafood and the rice was undercooked. Comments from the other guests were from good to fair. We expected more based... More

We had not been to Circa in a year and entertained a friend on a recent Sunday evening. I had requested a booth and they held one for us which was appreciated. However, the overall dining experience was disappointing. Our waiter was capable and attentive so service was fine but the food was not up to par. Our friend ordered... More

We've been here at least 4 or 5 times now and we have never left there disappointed. We are from N.Y. and when we brought my in-laws here even they loved it (they are very picky). I try to order something different every time, and every time I have been floored. We always have excellent service by a British gentleman... More

Very classy bar in a town of pubs. No TVs. Just great cocktails and tapas. Janeise is awesome. Treat yourself. Live a little and talk to the people at the bar. You'll thank yourself. And get the Chocolate Sushi for dessert. Trust me

Price Fix Menu was a great deal, salad,entree and perfect sized dessert. There were a variety of entrees to choose from for $24. Wednesday was half price bottles of wine making it an even better deal. Service was outstanding and timing on each course was perfect. It was a little conversationally challenged and rather dark. All of us at the... More

I stumbled across this restaurant in downtown Wilmington. It's located in a cool old building that used to be a bank, I think. I ordered the shrimp and grits, and the dish was excellent!
