We recently went to Manna for dinner with a group of friends. The service was fantastic, but the food was a big disappointment for me. First I don't like paying for my water. I know they do it in Europe, but this is Wilmington. Second...More

Because it is pricy, we went for an anniversary. Something has slipped here. Prices keep going up and the food, while “edgy “ is just not worth the price. There are so many great restaurants in Wilmington, I think we’ll try something different next time.

We had dinner here on a recent trip to Wilmington. Having read many good reviews about Manna, we were looking forward to our evening. Since we'd had a cheese plate earlier in the evening, neither of us were hungry for a full meal so we...More

We've been to Manna before and always had a great meal. This visit was no exception. Were going to the symphony, so arrived fairly early and had great cocktails while waiting for the kitchen to open. Manna is a 'farm to table' restaurant so the...More
