    We had the best experience. Robust and full flavored food. Beautiful presentation. Dynamic staff. Thankful for a delicious mocktail menu (baby on the way). AND the timing, views, everything….perfect. Simply perfect.

    I really enjoy this restaurant. The location is fantastic in downtown Wilmington on the river. The atmosphere is really nice, tables are spread apart and it is quiet. The food is fantastic and prices are reasonable for a nice restaurant in the area. We try to eat here at least once a month .

    This was my second time dining here with my husband and it didn’t disappoint. Our server (Gavin? Not sure if I’m recalling his name correctly but he was from Beaufort) was excellent. We ordered the spaghetti al formaggio again, and he was terrific in his presentation, explaining to us about the Parmesan that was used and showing/explaining each of the steps in the dish’s preparation. Everything was exceptional, including the pizza our son ordered. We’re already planning our next visit when we’re back in South Carolina.

    A wonderful dining experience again. The Fettuccini Jon Angelo and the short ribs were excellent and the service superb. The atmosphere is vibrant and the noise level similar which we rather enjoy. This time we were seated at a table in the front near the entrance so the noise level was lower. Some diners may prefer that. All in all, a great dining experience and we will be back.

    My first time at Seabird , as soon as you open the front door ,you can feel a great energy with lots of people enjoying theirs drinks ,and, a lot going on. Than, when you step into the dining room , you can appreciate the refine interior decor , modern , with slight accents of Barocco ,very elegant . We were welcomed by our server Jack ,his professionalism stood out as soon as he introduced himself ,to than explain the dinner menu in a way that i was t so taking by ,that i let him choose my appetizers and the main entrée . High quality ingredients with intense flavors , the dishes presented themself like portraits ,very difficult to choose what was the best part of the all entire dinner ,but the desserts were a great way to end this great dinner experience. It was my first time at Seabird ,but........ it won't be the last one.
