Located along a quiet side street just off the Downtown Wilmington waterfront, Aubriana’s Fine Dining is a posh and polished destination for great eats in the heart of the Cape Fear region. Boasting a full menu of elevated American cuisine, and utilizing southern inspiration and coastal flavors or ingredients whenever possible, this little downtown restaurant is a prime destination for a romantic date night.

The menu changes with the season, taking full advantage of the local veggies and goodies that are available at varying times of the year. Ideal for multi-course feasts, patrons who want to enjoy the full experience will want to start off with a delectable appetizer, like Stump Sound Oysters or Lamb Chop Lollipops, and then progress to a main entrée. While the dishes change with some regularity, diners can expect staples like Applewood bacon-wrapped filet mignon, homemade crab and lobster cakes, and slow braised North Carolina pork shank. A small bar is also located on-site, which is a fine destination for evening cocktails, a scotch, or a bourbon – all of which are well represented. Intrinsically romantic, Aubriana’s Fine Dining is a time-tested favorite among visitors who want to sample refined cuisine without straying too far from the central Downtown Wilmington area.
