Never a disappointment! We ordered the Prince Edward Island mussels in chardonnay garlic butter with bread. As promised they arrived steaming hot, sweet and succulent. The garlic butter sauce delighted the palate. The home made toasty bread was a perfect complement for the sauce. The soft shell crab entree special was tasty and fried to perfection. One of our favorite restaurants for consistently great food and service!

As always, this place was wonderful. My wife and I have celebrated numerous special occasions here, including this most recent trip being our 11th anniversary. The wait staff even helped me deliver my wife a special ring with our dessert. Thank you Aubriana's for another unforgettable evening and meal.
Delicious leek and bacon crouton soup!!

Perfect Anniversary DInner
Once again, Aubriana's made our anniversary dinner a special evening. The food was - as usual - wonderful. My husband raved about his catfish and my Black Angus beef tenderloin with the foie gras pain perdue and huckleberry gastrique was cooked to perfection (my mouth is watering as I type). Special kudos to our waitress Christy. She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, particularly the wine list. She made a recommendation, and because of her recommendation we enjoyed a bottle that was not only perfect for the Spring season and our meal, but one of the best I have ever tasted. She was an accomplished server who knew exactly when to check on us, but gave us time to savor our meal and our evening.
Disappointing restaurant experience
Decided to try Aubriana's for our 10 year anniversary. Now that we have tried it we will not be back nor would we recommend to a friend. The mood was set once we received our appetizer of fried mozzarella. We informed our waiter that the mozzarella was not cooked all the way through and was cold in the center. The appetizer came out with 3 pieces, but since we each had one piece on our plate when informing the waiter he only brought us back one cooked through. I mean how difficult or expensive is it to send out the full appetizer fully cooked. It is cheese. I did not have a salad, but my husband was not impressed with his Caesar salad. For our meals I had the salmon which was good and had a nice crust on the skin. He had the New York Strip which was served on a large piece of toast. We each tried dessert. I was excited to see they had crème brulee on the menu since it is my husbands favorite. It was described as a caramel popcorn crème brulee. He let me have a taste of the custard and I tasted blueberry and citrus which seemed weird and disappointing to me. I had the peanut butter mousse pie which was delicious. Overall I would have to say the company of my husband, the wine we ordered, and peanut butter pie were the highlights for this dinner out.
Cathy and George at Aubriana's
Cathy and I have eaten at Aubriana's for several years. We love the atmosphere, food, specialty cocktails, and the service. Our servers were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our appetizer, salad, and entree. We could not force ourselves to order dessert even though we knew it would be excellent. One of our favorite restaurants in downtown Wilmington!
This was my second time at Aubriana's. The food was exquisite! Everything was delicious and the service was excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant!
We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We chose Aubriana's because of the menu selections, the quaintness and the fact that it was nestled near the waterfront area. We chose the crab cakes for dinner which were excellent. We ended the evening with coffee and the tasty coconut cake. Our server was incredible. He explained the details of the menu and made sure we were well attended to. After dinner he escorted us to the adjacent courtyard where he captured several photographs of my wife and I to add to our weekend celebration collection. We recommend Aubriana's to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic evening and great food.
I always enjoy the food here. New menu was great.
The food here is always good. The new menu was great. Took my sister who was in town and she loved it. This is my go to place for special occasions. Great location and a good feel. The wait staff is excellent.
We had a great experience at Aubriana's. This was our second time eating there, and it was amazing as always. We went for my girlfriend's Birthday. We ended up trying something different this time around, but I will say the Pekin Duck Leg Confit is incredible! She had the Diver Scallops and I had the Ribeye. Both were very tasty! Can't wait to go back again!
Always a great meal!
Always a great meal!
Opposite of last time - 2/23 review
In 6 or 7 recent trips I had never been disappointed in Aubriana's service, food or ambiance. This time I was, in all three! Obviously there was a problem in the kitchen. Wine and our appetizer came and were outstanding. Then came a 30+ minute wait for our entree. (on a Thursday with only 4-5 other patrons in the restaurant.) Presentation was poor and the food was inedible - the scallops were just OK but the 'hopping john' was saltier than the Atlantic and that was the entree - 3 scallops and a spoonful of very salty Hoppin John. Hank finally came over and offered to take it back. By then it was too late, Aubriana's had lost its enhancement. I will try it again, but not soon in spite of an adjustment to the check. Guess nobody's perfect.
Excellent as always
What can I say... Great food, great atmosphere and great service (Hank). It's our place to go for special occasions!!!

Delmonico steak was amazing! As were scallops and gnocchi! Most servers seemed to hustle, but although ours was friendly, he wasn't the most attentive. Would go back.
As Usual, Great Dinner!!!

Our seafood entrees were outstanding. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped monkfish. Salads were good but not memorable. Dessert was a big miss. The service was choppy and amateurish. The atmosphere is charming.
My Girlfriend and I were recently at Aubriana's for dinner. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a smile and a super nice staff! The service was impeccable! The food was delicious and interesting. Each bite was so wonderful! We had such a great time and enjoyed everything about this place! We will definitely go back!!!! Thanks so much, Jenn and Tam

What a fantastic dinner
The chef here, Tyson Amick, and his team, delivered the best dining experience we have had in Wilmington in years. There were six of us so we got to try many offerings from the menu. Apps included a huge, screaming hot, skillet of mussels followed by shrimp tempura. All of our entrees were fabulous. Mine was the scallops prepared with the most wonderful delicate gnocchi. We didn't share among the table, but, I can guarantee a sure bet on the scallops. The dessert of chocolate buchon was decadent, but, the signature dessert of peanut butter pie was over the top. Obviously, they care about quality and good service. Great cocktails and wine list too. Beautiful room with exposed brick walls in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation. Even on a Tuesday they had a full room all night. It's that good. Thank you Aubriannas for a truly special experience. I can't wait to return!
For A Wonderful Evening this place can't be beat!
This is in our 'Top 3' Restaurants in Wilmington area for Special Occasions. Just a great experience! Food is outstanding, ambiance is over the top and its just 'fun'.
Window Table for Two
This was a great place for a quiet, intimate dinner with my significant other. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We had a small table by the window and were able to watch all of the activity of downtown while enjoying out peaceful dinner. Our reservations were honored in an extremely timely manner and I received a courtesy call prior to arriving to let me know that they had earlier reservations available if we desired them.
Great place for a quiet night out
Amazing food. Great view from most tables in the restaurant of Front St. The food was amazing, the wine list extensive. Wonderful night out with alone my spouse!
Great Valentine's Day Dinner
We had never been to Aubriana's before, and must say that we will definitely be going back! This was some of the best food I have ever eaten in my life. The food was great, the service was excellent, and we could not have been more pleased!
My wife and I decided to go here for Valentine's Day. We live about 45 minutes away and had never eaten here before. We were really nervous. We had some other plans fall through in Wilmington, so we showed up for our reservation about an hour and a half early. Aubriana's staff was very understanding and seated us immediately. We selected the calamari as an appetizer and a couple of glasses of wine. Both were great! I ordered a New York Stop Steak, which isn't on the normal menu, I guess it was a Valentine's Day Special, but it was the best steak I have ever eaten anywhere. My wife selected the half chicken from the menu and she says it was delectable. I was happy to brag about how great the food and service were the next day at work. I love this place and will definitely be going back!!
Always a favorite place.
Requested a window seat and when I called to confirm they said no problem. When I arrived I was told they don't hold window seats.
Perfect as usual
This was our 2nd visit...2nd of many to come. We absolutely love the ambience and environment, plus the steaks are the best we've had anywhere. From Las Vegas to Wilmington, NY to Florida, their ribeyes and filets are hands-down the best. Great job Aubriana's, we'll see you again next month.
A Front Street Find!
This is a jewel on Front Street! What a wonderful menu! The lobster special and lobster Mac and Cheese was probably the best I have ever eaten! Steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Coconut cake delicious with coconut ice cream! We loved it so much - we cancelled dinner reservations at another restaurant in town and returned there the following night. Foodie out there - don't miss this one!
Aubriana's Class A
Everything was great - Food, service, ambience! Great seafood!
WE HAVE BEEN TO AUBRIANAS SEVERAL TIMES AND ALWAYS GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE
We cannot believe that we had never been to Aubrianas before. Boy have we been missing out! We had the calamari which was the best we have had in a long time. I had the duck and it was fantastic! Our waitress was very attentive. We cannot wait until we are back in town so we can dine there again.
Great for an occasion or just out to dinner. Food is always excellent. Wait staff cordial. Parking is a pain.
Aubriana's killed it
I was looking for a romantic place for dinner, for my new bride and I. I spoke with the manager by phone, after making reservations via Open Table. She made sure all the details were taken care of. She offered to go out to get flowers as well, which I declined. I invested that money saved in a bottle of champagne. We were seated in a small window table, looking out onto Front Street, downtown. It was cold and rainy, and it was cozy in Aubriana's. HANK was our server. I suggest requesting him, as he was another wonderful compliment to our meal. His service and our meals were impeccable. I had a Delmonico Ribeye served over potato puree, with creamed spinach, and she had a scallops and pasta entree. Again, compliments to the chef and staff, as it was all amazing. I'm from Wilmington, and have lived all over- most recently Atlanta, which is definitely a city flush with great restaurants. Aubriana's was world class, and just what we were looking for, for a wonderful romantic date with an amazing dining experience. Thank you to all involved. Highly recommended. We will be back.

The service, food and presentation were outstanding. A must for your dining enjoyment.
Absolutely wonderful service, ambience, and food (especially the steaks). The noise level was a bit high, but we were near the bar so it's understandable. Overall, the meal was superb. The price for 2 would be slightly less than RC Steakhouse, but worth every penny.
Nice find in historic downtown Wilmington
Service excellent , menu selection nice. Mussels app very good, Oyster app great. Scallop entree very good, pork shank over cooked, crab & lobster great. We will go back !
Great Food, had an issue with service.
The food was great, but half way through dinner our server disappeared. No Idea where they went. after being done eating for about 10 minutes the hostess checked in with us and took up our plates. About 5-7 minutes later the server finally came by with the check.
Special Occasion Dining
Our first time visiting Aubriana'sNew Year's Eve and we had a wonderful time. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food very much. Our waiter was knowledgeable and thoughtful, without being overbearing. I would highly recommend Aubriana's for a special occasion.
Cocktail at the bar was great. Food was outstanding. Service was terrific. Would definitely recommend and will go back again.

The food was great. The service could've definitely been better. Waitress forgot to turn in our appetizer so it showed up with the entrees.
