Delightful for lunch or dinner. Daily specials.. Terrific sandwiches & salads. Everything extremely fresh. They serve a great, flakey crust chicken pot pie . Nice wine variety ... They have bottles along one wall, you can pick your own bottle or buy by the glass . Seating is a bit snug.. But the food and its freshness, makeup for that... More

I stopped locals & asked if this restaurant was good & all agreed, great place to eat! So, we did. My son ordered the Asian chicken wrap & pasta salad. I ordered soup-of-the-day, tomato basil & pick-3 salad special: Pear salad with spring mix greens, grapes, pears, Bleu cheese, pecans with raspberry vinaigrette Tuna salad with chopped veggies, dressing was...

Panini w/ pasta salad and husband had a sandwich w/ potato salad. Good but, really overpriced. We were in the area and this was one of the recommendations given to us as a closeby place.

I was welcomed like family. Appreciated the cloth napkins and table cloths. I had only the soup but fell in love. The hamburgers looked awesome.

I've been many times and everything is always fresh and delicious. The tarragon chicken salad is my favorite. It is offered on the menu on a croissant, but is delicious on a baguette. You can't go wrong with the salads or quiche. The berry tea is also a delightful treat.

Lunch fare is always great here. Expect a wait if you arrive too much after 12. Fantastic sandwiches and salads.

I don't live in NC, but always make an excuse to visit Temptations when visiting the area. My parents lived in Porter's Neck and were huge proponents of this lovely little Bistro. Sadly, when my mother became ill, she was not welcome at the Bistro (and was told this) unless she ate a meal (she had cancer of the intestines,... More

OK: we live one hour away from Wilmington but always find a way to enjoy lunch when we are in Wilmington; Temptations is one of our favorite places for lunch for several reasons: the food is excellent, you can get a 1/2 sandwich and salad (we are not volume eaters, just quality eaters), and the wine quality and prices are...

This little gem in a strip mall is a great place for lunch with the girls! The food is delicious and all homemade. The specials are seasonal and make the selection even better! The server was warm and personable, very knowledgeable and kept the tea coming! Thanks for a great lunch. Will be back.
