Service was outstanding. Waitress noticed we were celebrating a birthday, and the dessert came with two delicious chocolate wafers, one lettered Happy Birthday! A great touch for the creme brulee, which was the best we ever had. We both had the Frenchy sandwich and the flavor was great with the gruyere cheese , but a little awkward to eat, bottom of roll had gotten too moist. But all in all a great meal in very pleasant surroundings! More

I love to go o a place where the menu is extensive and you can still order things that you don't see. They will make anything special order and deviate from the menu to suit my palate. Love the Ceasar sald show and Danny is a showman at it. Casual yet upscale the way I like it. Have been coming here for decades and it is still one of the best of Delaware. More

Contemporary American | Wilmington, Delaware

Dining in Delaware can be like trying to find water in the desert. We have been searching the sands for a few years when, to our great delight, we have found an oasis! Steeped in history with a National Register plaque at the front door to disprove any deniers, enter Krazy Kats, the French restaurant associated with the Montchanin retreat and spa. We felt like old friends from the moment we entered until the moment we departed. Our party of five left with a happy glow that only a special restaurant experience can impart. Oh, and the food was perfect! Perfectly prepared and beautifully presented, each part member was especially pleased with his or her selections from soup to dessert. Please do not go to this wonderful place-we want to keep it all for ourselves!!!! More

Italian | Wilmington, Delaware

It's rare to go to a restaurant for lunch where the server doesn't address us as "guys." We are easily identifiable as women and senior citizens who eat out quite often. The wait staff at Toscana is unfailingly professional, personable and excellent in every possible way. And the food is excellent and also beautifully plated. The name on Open Table is not mine; is there any way it can be corrected? Laura Griffin is a woman who made a reservation for us to dine in London four years ago. My name is Paula Garrison. Thank you so much. Best wishes. More

The River Rock Kitchen at the Westin Hotel in Wilmington exceeded our expectations. It was quiet due to the limited number of customers. The food and service was excellent. The sushi bowl appetizer, the farm fresh salads, the delicious entrees, and the creme' brulee dessert were all above par. Considering our pleasurable dining experience, we're not sure why the restaurant isn't busier! More
