delightful lunch

We wanted a break from the ordinary sandwich and found many choices at the Eclipse. The parsnip risotto was perfect as was a beet salad. A sandwich with wild boar was overpowered by the cole slaw topping but otherwise well done. The service was attentive and I highly recommend this spot.

Every one in our group of five judged their salad or entre' 'superior, and all are world travelers. Our server was right on suggestions and a pleasing minimalist presence at table. Interior decor is subdued, a good backgound for a great luncheon.

Spectacular food, service, and atmosphere. There is so much competition for fine dining in this neighborhood, restaurants really need to distinguish themselves. Eclipse hits the mark on all counts!

From the calamari to the pastas, everything was excellent. Shredded pork tamales excellent as was the Monkfish with fried oysters and finally salmon presented well

We were seated immediately for our reservation. Within the hour, every table was filled-a great sign on a weeknight. We we were warmly greeted by Jeremy upon our arrival and departure; he also checked on us mid meal. Appreciated this level of attentiveness. Lots of specials expanded the menu. Once again, we were impressed with the options, the quality of... More

While out for the day in the Brandywine River Valley area, we were looking for a nice spot for lunch. Came upon Eclipse Bistro in my smartphone and decided to give it a try. Very happy with the choice. The day was frigid, but the service and the food were warm, caring and delicious. Burger wars was going on, so... More

We were visiting the area and went here for New Year's Eve, based on many favorable reviews. The place was festively decorated with gold balloons on every chair. Our waiter was nice, and the service was good. He brought an 'amuse-bouche" of butternut squash with bread crumbs, which was ok, but rather heavy on the bread crumbs, We started with... More

We recently visited Wilmington and booked a table for 7:30 PM. I know that it is sometimes difficult to have a table ready at the exact booking time but we were forced to wait 25 minutes before we were seated. The Maitre'D said that our table was slow to turn over as they were "lingering" over coffee. The real problem... More

We hadn't been to Eclipse for many years but liked the menu choices and reviews when checking online. Went for a birthday dinner and enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and staff very much. Good thing we had a reservation. It's nice to go to a popular place and have everyone around you enjoying themselves.
