We did not make a reservation (make a reservation before you go!) but the very sweet hostess work us a space to relax at the bar then grab one of their very cozy couches for a romantic dinner for two up stairs. The staff were simply excellent! Every person that passed us made sure we had everything we needed. And... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on Monday March 20 on our first visit to Wilmington. The restaurant is easy to find and has a lovely atmosphere, warm and inviting. We had reservations so we were seated quickly, upstairs seems to be the preferred area. Our server Jack was excellent, attentive and very knowledgeable. We had house pate as... More

The food was very good, and the wait between courses was not very long. There is very little room in the restaurant, I was bumped several times as the waitstaff tended to the table behind me - the food more than makes up for it.

Good food, good service, nice ambiance, good cocktails. The cliché about French restaurants is that they have very small portions Fortunately Caprice had reasonable portions. Price was reasonable for the quality of the food. Only downside was that menue is somewhat limited. would go back if in area

I have been to Caprice Bistro twice and both times outstanding food was served piping hot by experienced and friendly wait staff. The house specialty, Waterzooi, is so rich I had to beg off the typical chocolate desserts I love and "settle" for sorbet. The house made sorbet was so flavorful, my companion was disappointed he hadn't ordered it! Tip:... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. I have never, ever had anything but a great meal here, great steaks, wonderful sauces, great wine list (their house white is so good, and reasonably priced) and professional, excellent wait staff. You will not be disappointed! I live downtown, and lived in France for years, and often frequent Caprice. Just sayin'... it is the... More

I love to stop in for a salad, Martini or crepes. Reasonable prices. Authentic French (I've traveled there numerous times and studied there twice). Quality food, great atmosphere.

This is a wonderful place to take company. There is something for everyone on the menu. Last night, our group had the lamb shank, pork chop, and the chicken. The calamari appetizer was devoured. The pistachio creme brûlée was fantastic. I love the fact that the entrees are served steaming hot. Great food at reasonable prices!

I've been here numerous times and have never had a bad meal. Everything is cooked to perfection. I've had the duck, seafood stew, pasta and snails.

Thank theacademyisis
