I went here a few months and never knew it existed. A friend too me. It was SO delicious. The ambience has lower lighting and it's very intimate. The food is so simple, but so fresh and delicious. I loved it and would absolutely go back. It isn't the cheapest ever, but it's worth going at least once. If you... More

Three of us had a great meal on Tuesday night which is 1/2 price wine night (bottles $50 and lower) and it was good we had reservations. I had a great Kettle martini and we started with a cheese board for the table. The server was knowledgable and suggested the cheeses. All the servers at Eclipse know the menu and... More

Friendly place, nice decor, food very good. Downtown location seems a bit rough, but there were no problems. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side for the quality and size of the portions.

Eclipse Bistro has been one of the best restaurants in Wilmington for a very long time. We have always had great meals and reliable service. Recently the menu has been changed. It remains varied and our choices were done well. They were adequate portions and extremely tasty. We will certainly want to try the new selections again. The wine choices... More

Another great experience-food and service were impeccable. We were seated immediately for our reservation (a must have on the weekends). Seasonal menu selections were terrific-we had the venison and veal dishes-delicious-both were prepared perfectly. The calamari starter was outstanding, as was the salted beet salad. Service was attentive and professional-every table was filled and we received appropriate focus and attention.... More

This is my first time here with my wife and the reviews for this location are spot on. I made reservations and received a letter excellent spot. Server was polite and very attentive. My meal "as my wife described" was something she never had before (that's a good thing). I will recommend this to anyone I know. I am also... More

We go to Eclipse Bistro several times a year. We live in Baltimore and our friends live in Philly. Wilmington is the logical place to meet for dinner in between. We used to try a variety of places and then realized all four of us really liked Eclipse Bistro for three reasons: the menu, the knowledgable and nice wait staff... More

Had dinner at Eclipse last night for the first time. Service by Mike was very attentive and he has a tremendous personality!! We both had the scallops. They were 4 huge scallops cooked to perfection! Sides were lentils and the best ratatouille I've ever eaten! It was so flavorful! Lemon Tart Brulee was an excellent dessert. Highly recommend and I... More

While visiting Wilmington, Delaware recently, we ate a late lunch at the Eclipse Bistro. It was truly our favorite meal of the trip. The menu was very interesting with a nice variety of seasonal dishes. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with our selections. The food was wonderful! The "torn pasta" was especially delightful. If we ever return to... More

I stopped here after visiting Winterthur for dinner with the family. Very easy and close to get to from Winterthur. Tip: Make reservations early when they open (5:00-5:30pm) so that there is street parking (free for 2 hrs) available. If you come later, you will be stuck driving around and walking to the restaurant. A small bistro size restaurant with... More
