Cozy french restaurant near the boardwalk in downtown Wilmington. I especially liked it as it was cold outside. French through and through. I had liver pate appetizer and their fish special. Solid wine list. Not overly expensive....enjoyable evening.

I agree with all the other answers: smart casual. Collar shirt for men; nice slacks, capris, or simple daytime dress for women. Yes, you do see everything there but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be nicely dressed to dine... More
