A little gem On Union Street!

This bistro serves fabulous food and wine! I am a frequent visitor and each time there is something new on the menu. The service is excellent. Great place for lunch dates, meetings and the evening is happening. Small dining room, but cozy and great energy!

Eclipse is known for its consistently excellent food and superb attentive service. And we have always found it to be the case on our frequent visits. Nice wine list complements the find dinner items. This remains our repeat dining location. When they see us coming they automatically place an order for the calamari because we would not eat there without... More

This was truly a wonderful, sophisticated and delicious experience, from the cocktails to the beautiful creative modern menu and desserts. Classic dish like short ribs with a twist. We celebrated our son's college graduation, on a busy night but service still impeccable. It is a small venue but it is truly a gem. Make reservations in advance.. I was hesitant... More

What a lovely surprise to find this cozy, little restaurant while exploring Delaware. Charming decor and a friendly staff are the first things you notice, but the food is so much more than expected. Farm to table ingredients and delicious, imaginative dishes. All this and a full bar with wine list and beer selections. You may have to look for... More

We went here for an early (5pm) dinner on U of Delaware's graduation weekend. The restaurant was continuously busy, but the service was fantastic and none of the staff seemed hurried or stressed at any of the tables. Our waiter was very attentive, pouring our bottled water whenever our glasses got low. He was pleasant, patient, and explained all specials... More

A few colleagues and I decided we wanted to try a "new" place for lunch. We did not make a reservation, and arrived a little before 12. We were seated right away. The service was great, the ambiance was great, and the food was awesome. We each ordered a different meal, and shared the fried Gruyere appetizer. We all agreed... More

Have dined here a number of time over the years; always an innovative menu selection, good service and reasonable prices! There were a few misses, but overall, the kitchen (which you can watch from any seat in the house!) does an excellent job! I had the grill prawn app. (basically a VERY fancy shrimp and grits - excellent flavor and... More
