First Review by sheizlegend

Best small fine dining restaurant ever - Edit

They have an extensive gluten free and vegan menu we had the cauliflower and quinoa crust that were absolutely amazing and believe anything else would be tasty. Also the owners are directly involved in all food preparation and drink making so nothing is short of Excellence. The chef even came to our table to make sure everyone was satisfied. I believe this is a place that everybody should try once you will definitely come back

Pros: Vegan and gluten free menu, Also plenty of options for meat eaters, Great atmosphere and customer service

Cons: It's a bit small

pleasantly surprised - Edit

We did not expect this place to be so vegan friendly! Once we were seated they asked about our diet and brought us the proper menu. First place I've seen in Wilmington that brings you a vegan menu!! We got the fancy fries without cheese which are so stinking good! We also ordered the vegan pizza and the vegan burgers. All very good! The vegan aioli on the burgers was great too! Go check it out!

Pros: vegan menu, vegan aioli

Great vegan options! - Edit

NeMa has lots of vegan options on the menu - the fancy fries without cheese are delish! In fact, they may be the best fries I've ever had. You can also enjoy vegan pizza, tofu fajitas, or a tofu sandwich, followed by a vegan brownie for dessert! Soups can be veganized, and the chef and owner are very friendly and interested in customer input.

Pros: great atmosphere., lots of vegan options., friendly and helpful staff and owner.

Cons: they are nut-free, so no nuts on or in anything.

Sadly Mediocre - Edit

We were visiting family on the coast and brought in a large party during the late afternoon. They were thankfully very accommodating for our party size and got us seated very quickly. The biggest issue would have to be the food. We figured with the amount of vegan options that this place was headed in the right direction. The vegan pizza is about the size of a teenage boy's hand. The tofu sandwich came out on bread when I was very clear about having it brought out on lettuce (their GF bread has eggs). It was bland and had zero love put into the dishes. I am hoping they will revamp their menu if they want to be such inclusionary establishment.

Chefmarkko 11 Apr 2017 - Thanks for visiting NeMa and taking time to write a review.

We have made the following changes since your visit:

1) we have since added pepperoncini and a scratch made Vegan aioli to the tofu sandwich

2) added more herbs to our tofu marinade to give it a flavor boost

3) lettuce wraps are now served on purple plates if you have a wheat or gluten allergy

4) we now have multiple size pizzas available

5) We have added farm tables, a liquor display, and accent lighting since your visit

Chef Mark, NeMa
