“Farm to table menu with excellent preparations and presentations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

This was our second visit here, and we were even more impressed this time ( and we loved our first visit). The menu changes regularly, based on what is local and in season. We had three different salads and each was excellent. My entree was pompano, and it was one of the most delicious fish preparations I've had. The shrimp and grits were excellent, as was the cioppino. This restaurant is a little pricey, but we all felt it was worth what we paid. We look forward to returning.

“Food - Amazing, Service - Eh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

The food at this restaurant is some of the best if not the best in Wilmington. The atmosphere is great and really comfortable. My one warning is that at least during our visit, the service was really sub par for a restaurant of this caliber. If you're going to charge these kinds of prices then the servers hired should understand what's expected in a fine dining restaurant and not be telling the patrons about being out partying all night the night before and disappearing every 5 seconds. That said, the pork belly is not to be missed!!!

“Best Farm to Table Restaurant in Wilmington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

RX is always full of surprises with a diverse choice of fresh local produce, meat and fish. The meals never disappoint and the menu is constantly changing. The chiefs are innovative with phenomenal results. This is my wife and I's favorite restaurant in Wilmington with excellent service and amiable staff. We often just sit at the bar and eat as well as imbibe excellent alcoholic concoctions.

“Upscale Neighborhood Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

The menu is changed daily based on what is available. Entrees ranged from fish to pork to guinea hen. Our table ordered two salads split four ways, guinea hen, shrimp and grits, and flounder. Every item was extremely tasty, well presented, and filling. We did leave room for dessert and had blueberry cheese pie and a browny with ice cream and delicious sauce. The location is definitely off of the beaten path but had enough tables filled on a Tuesday night to make it profitable. Clientele consisted of a large table of ladies, several gentleman at the bar, and several tables of couples. No children -- it definitely isn't a kid's place. Service was exceptionally good but not overbearing. The atmosphere was a little clanky due to the hard floor, walls, and ceiling.

“Good vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

This is a hip restaurant with a good vibe and good, imaginative food. The menu was a little heavy on the pig/pork dishes for me, but I opted for the sea bass special and was very impressed. It's a convivial place and has great cocktails. If you plan to visit Wilmington do yourself a favor and go here rather than the touristy restaurants along the river.
