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.

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
