Aubriana's Fine Dining Ratings and Reviews

We moved to Wilmington six months ago and have wanted to go to Aubriana's, but we kept making excuses. Finally, we said that Valentine's Day would be the perfect time to try it and we were absolutely right. The ambiance was perfect. They do not have the tables all pushed so close that you feel you are dining with strangers. The menu was varied and we enjoyed delicious cocktails while we perused the menu. We never felt that our waitress was trying to turn the table and the food was delivered in a prompt but unhurried fashion. The oysters were some of the best we have had. The dinner was delicious, really, everything was but our favorite was the bisque.

We were last there Christmas eve - a perfect evening and a chance to try their famous white Sangria (this is a must). This time it was St. Valentine's Day and we weren't disappointed.
Oysters were superb . Lamb was a spec overdone but delicious none the same. This is a great place to celebrate. Food is outstanding, Hank our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The mixologist served Champaign infused with strawberries and her fabulous white sangria either of which is worth the trip. Celebrating or just having a date with that special person - Aubriana's is sure to impress. Prices are a tad high but you get what you pay for and here you get the very best.

We were seated at a very small table by the front door, where it was difficult to hear our own conversation. We ordered scallops and ravioli, and got 3 of each on our small dinner plate. (It looked more like an appetizer plate.) There was no bread, which we would have welcomed. I guess we had to order and pay for that separately. Our servers were good.

My wife and I dined here on a weeknight in January, so it was not crowded, and the service folks were friendly and very helpful. Even got a history of the building. Food was very good. I imagine in the summer, it's a different story with bigger crowds and more noise, but in the winter, it is a really pleasant, relaxing spot.

We've eaten there several times. If it weren't good we would not go back. The only menu for NYE was incorrect, however, they pulled a ribeye out and made it for me. The service is friendly, its a nice quiet place with great food and drinks.

Service was excellent, but entree food didn't match our expectations nor the somewhat expensive price point. The lobster from the surf and turf was small, tough and not served in the shell. Also, it didn't come with melted butter. Portions seemed to be in adequate. However, it is one of the few local restaurants that allows you to bring your own wine (with a corkage fee).

We have been to Aubriana's several times and chose it above others for Paul's birthday. It was just the two of us and we had a little table in the window so it felt like Paris. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the evenings offerings and we had fun making our decisions. From first course to last, the meal was terrific. Wilmington is such a jewel of a town, with many great places to enjoy and Aubriana's is certainly a top pick. We live an hour away but we never hesitate to make the drive.

Aubrianna's was excellent as always. We go every year on Christmas Eve prior to going to church and love it. The people are so friendly (bartender, and the two owners, and the waitstaff). We look forward to visiting next year. We also bring friends here during the year.

My husband and I went to Aubriana's for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Emily, our server, was very attentive and informative. The food was excellent. The ambiance is soft and relaxing. We were so impressed with the restaurant that we returned with our sons when they visited us for Christmas. The steak special was delicious and the cocktails are a treat.

My S/O & I wanted to try something different. Now that we've been living here the past 6 months we had got in the habit of going to the same old places; we needed to mix it up a bit. I'm not one to toot my own horn but I am certainly glad it was up to me to pick the location because if not who know's who how long it'd have been before we ate our new favorite restaurant!
The place was beautiful. Open brick that seemed to stretch to the heavens. Immaculate hardwood floors. We were sat a beautifully set table for two. Once we were sat we were promptly waited on by Frankie; a lovely lady in her I'd say early twenties. I was amazed! Most of the time you expect the service of younger people to be too overzealous or nonexistent at all. Frankie knew how to find the exact balance of making sure we never went with out but not feeling like we had someone hovering over us waiting for the exact moment to deliver the check & turn her section & reset for the next arrivals. It was a Wednesday evening in December at about 65% capacity. The seating is spread out enough to make your dining experience feel as intimate as if it were just you & your party there
Ambiance & service aside, no mater how splendid, lets get to what really matters the food & drink!
Our App: Calamari with Cajun Remoulade
We both thoroughly enjoyed our suggested bottle of sauvigon blanc it paired well with the Perfectly fried Calamari with a sauce that was actually Cajun seasoned & not Creole.
Me: Pork Jowl pasta
Have you ever had a dish all you can say is wow too? This is one of those.
Her: French Airline Chicken Breast
At first was a little disappointed she didn't step out side her comfort zone; then I tasted it. It's always rewarding when you have a dish you've had a thousand time but will finally remember .
At this point we knew dessert would be glutenous and opted to skip dessert. This Was A fantastic experience that I would recommend to any one any time.

I had a special date planned and I chose this spot based solely on the reviews. Aubriannas is rated well for fine dining and it certainly did not disappoint. The food was very attractive when it was brought to us, it's food quality also was very good. The staff was helpful but.left us alone to talk and enjoy eachothers company. I would reccomend to a friend for a classy spot.

It isn't what it was... The hostess didn't even know the chef's name. The music was too loud and it was too modern. Didn't get the feel the chef took the time with his menu. Ribeye during thanksgiving? Didn't he know that the alternative to Turkey was ribeye in every restaurant? Where's the ny strip or the delmonico or even the wedge salad?

The pork chop special was dry. The place only had three tables seated and when the next guests arrived they were seated right next to us with barely an arms distance away. It was our anniversary dinner so it would have been nice to have some privacy. I was purposed to at your restaurant so will always come back especially for the lamb lollipops!

This was our first dining experience at Aubriana's. We had heard good things, and we were overall satisfied with the meal. The service was great! Drinks were good, food came out promptly but we didn't feel rushed, and the atmosphere was lovely. The only downside was the food. While it wasn't bad by any means, I was expecting more. I ordered the Denver steak and it was full of fat--literally every bite. Also, the combination of flavors seemed off, but that just may be my personal opinion. My husband enjoyed his meal. We also let them know ahead of time we were celebrating a special occasion and it was not mentioned. Overall, our experience was good and we would return, but I would definitely order something else.

Some of it is that it's a historic building. It is what it is. The place feels crowded even when it wasn't. The service was a little weird - the manager, someone form the kitchen and another waiter were our "waiter". The lamb chop lollipop app was ok except one of them was grisly - really a disappointment. The meal was fine though and desert was good - pecan pie. Overall service was mostly disappointing - never felt like we got a real wait person. The price was too high for what the experience was. Wilmington has a lot of options - probably not making this one again.

Have wanted to go here for quite some time and sorry we waited so long. Thoroughly enjoyed everything, from the atmosphere to the excellent staff and outstanding food and wine. I had the striped bass with squash polenta and my husband had the ribeye with parsnip mashed potatoes. The blending of flavors was very good. Finished with a shared pumpkin creme brulee. Will definitely be going back.
Aubriana's has an outstanding atmosphere ...
Aubriana's has an outstanding atmosphere inside. And although it's decor models that of an old factory or foundry, conversations don't echo throughout the dining area, which keeps the noise levels very comfortable while eating. The service was excellent. We had Hank for our waiter and he was great! Took very good care of us and no pressure to move us out quickly. Wine selection is plentiful and covered a lot for so many people's different tastes. The menu isn't your avg restaurant type, but the food was absolutely delicious and all the meats were cooked perfectly. Apps, salads & desserts were just as good as the main courses we had. Price was a little high when compared to other restaurants in the area, but the food we had and atmosphere inside the restaurant made it worth the trip. Looking forward to going again and have already recommended Autiana's to several friends.

Excellent authentic Italian food in downtown Wilmington. Professional, friendly staff and a chef who makes fabulous, mouthwatering sauces. The menu is not extensive but there the choices are sufficiently varied so that there is something for everyone and everything is delicious.
