Lots of good options on the menu - the appetizer Artichokes Francaise were very good and the sauce was delicious. Generous portions. Fish special (red snapper) was excellent. The Chicken Saltimboca was attractive and the sauce was good but the chicken was dry and the prosciutto was tough. Overall a good meal for the others in my party.

My spaghetti was excellent, the eggplant was tasteless and tasted like it had sat in the pan a long time, terrible. My sons small pepperoni pizza fell apart when he tried to pick it up and eat it, the crust was toooo thin!
My husband said the lasagna was ok.
Hostess was friendly, we sat down within 5 mins of our reservation. Server was prompt and friendly. Did not suggest desert or coffee or any dinner specials.

We eat at OC regularly and are NEVER disappointed. Never get the same thing on the menu and everything is always great. The wait staff is always professional and friendly. Service is always very good. I sense a great deal of teamwork going on among all the staff and that has to come from the ownership/management. Highly recommend this restaurant and all the associated restaurants with the Circa group.

This was our first visit to this restaurant during a few night trip to Wilmington. The menu had a wonderful selection & broad range of options. Wish I could recall the name of our server, she was excellent, attentive and very pleasant. The restaurant is large with nice decor and comfortable seating. Overall this is a very good value for the money & we will definitely return whenever we go to Wilmington.
One of Wilmington's Top 10
Always great food at this spacious restaurant. We have been here 30+ times and the food is always Delicious and they have a great and attentive staff. The butternut squash ravioli is one of my favorite dishes. And great calamari too.

We entered restaurant at our reservation time and we're immediately seated at a round table for our party of four.
Our waitress was pleasant and personable. She was efficient as well. Drink orders, appetizers were handled efficiently.
Sometimes my wife acts as ordering dinner is as complicated as buying a house. Didn't phase our waitress a bit. She remained calm, pleasant and good spirited. We ordered our dinner and we all were surprised how quickly our meals came.
Overall it was nice dining experience and got to catch up with friends in a pleasant atmosphere without any restaurant issues what so ever.
OC is one of my favorite restaurants in Wilmington I can't remember any bad meals or experiences there. I've been dining there since they been open.

Outstanding place to dine after a long day at the beach. The staff is extremely personable and attentive to your needs. It's upscale dining. in a family style atmosphere.
The meatballs are a must have to start the meal, salad are large and can be shared between two or more people. Chicken Parm and Marsala are righteous and the pastas are very tasty.
Make a reservation, this place is jamming on weekends and holidays.
Loud & tough
It was graduation weekend. We were sat in a room with nothing but large, LOUD groups of people. It was our 21st anniversary, and I was looking forward to a nice night out. I had made resavations two days before, so they new we were coming. My wife had a chicken dish that was fine. My veal dish was tough, but I ate it. Our waitress was Ok, but very busy. The best part of the night were my cocktails that were good but expensive.
Always a great meal with friends and family!
We have eaten here many times before with small and large groups of friends and family. The prices are moderate and the food is very good. We are a picky bunch and there is something on the menu for everyone. I have never had anything but a great meal and great experience here. The butternut squash ravioli is so delicious and unlike any other that I have had before. The salads are very fresh and the breads are all house made. Portion size is very good but not gigantic, it's just right.
We were down visiting our parents who just relocated to Wilmington. The ambiance was lovely our waitress was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for main courses. It was a delicious meal portions are fairly large. We shared the bruschetta and fried calamari which was plenty for 6 adults. My parents have already gone back for lunch. Would highly recommend.
This was my second time going to the restaurant. My first experience was at a Christmas party with my co-workers and it was a wonderful experience. So, I figured that I'd take my mother and sister to the restaurant this past weekend so that they could have a similar experience. That was not the case. From the moment we got there it was horrible. Our hostess who sat us was quite rude and she didn't speak at all. We sat near the entrance which we all hated especially me, because of constant customers and waiters walking behind my family and I. We would have preferred to sit in the inside to gain the experience. On to the food, my sister and I both ordered the Filet Mignon mushroom risotto. This meal had no taste once so ever. Also, I asked for my meat to be well done and it was not well done, I saw red spots on my meat and simply could not finish it. The waitress came and asked us how the food was and my sister said to her that she did not like her meal and the waitress replied, "Would you like it in a box to go?" My sister responded, "no, I just said that I didn't like it." Then the waitress looked at me and I asked for another lemonade. She had no sympathy once so ever for my and did nothing except take the plate to throw away. Normally my family and I order dessert , but because of the horrible experience we gotten thus far, we decide to leave and eat dessert elsewhere.
I'm highly considering telling my boss at work to hold the Christmas party at a different restaurant and we're typically a party of 15-20 people. Simply because of my horrible experience. Honestly, at different restaurants if you do not like your meal then they replace it for you and if you do not like your seat then they will seat you at a different place. I could go on and on, but I feel like this is a waste of everyone's time because nothing will change from me stating my experience and I will get nothing back in return. I am extremely dissatisfied with my experience.
