Easily one of my favorite restaurants, period. I always try to get there when in WIlmington. The menu choices are great, especially the dinners for 2 (recommend Surf -n-turf) or 4 (recommend coastal craving); really gives a nice variety. The other great option is the "Undecided" where you pick from 3 meats/proteins. Even after multiple visits, I still rely on the staff to help me make the best pairings as the whole process can be a little daunting.The staff is so very knowledgeable wants to make this a unique dining experience. They will happily guide you in your selection of cooking styles, sauces and cheeses. They will also give you a card for how long you should cook your food int he cooking vessel (for poultry, I've always added 2 minutes). Highly recommend the Au Pouive sauce for beef and Coconut Curry for poultry & shrimp. The Havarti Dill and Fontina cheeses are to die for. Dessert is also a winner! Their menu is on their website. It's a good idea to look it over; may help to understand the experience.

What happened? Used to feel friendly. Tonight felt like i was a cash cow. They messed up my daughters order twice and added a 20percent tip to the bill, with another option to add more, on a 3 person table. I just dont see why i would ever go back.

Great place to finish a day of sightseeing in Wilmington and enjoy some fondue. We had already dined but wanted to try some fondue, so they brought us a different menu that had some separate fondue pots that were great for tasting some fondue both cheese and chocolate. Great service and great food made for a wonderful experience in Wilmington.

Excellent food and selection, waiter was very helpful being our first fondue in years. Use to have a fondue pot many years ago. Loved the atmosphere and the price was not bad for the selection for two. Recommend reservations . Will return again next time in Wilmington and tell my friends!

We made that mistake and they took offense to it, jokingly. We loved our waiter. He was so much fun and made our little dipper experience even better. The food was amazing. The bar area is also really nice.
