Eclipse is all about local foods and fresh ingredients. If all people with this vision would prepare food as well as they do here, then the food quality in our country would most definitely increase. We went there for a decedent dinner. It was my birthday and being from out of town, I used trip advisor to find a place... More

My husband and I went here later in the evening a few weeks ago. The restaurant was fairly empty which was kind of nice. Our waiter was friendly but was MIA most of the evening. Our food was prepared well, it just lacked flavor. Our cocktails were good, no complaints there. I was hoping for a little better experience, but... More

We met friends in Wilmington on a Sunday evening and really enjoyed Eclipse Bistro. Good wine list, nice cheese selection, tasty scallops and delicious duck. Service was very good. Would recommend!.

We had a 7pm reservation on a Saturday night. We arrived right at 7, and were seated immediately at a table by the window. The vibe of this place is great... Classy, but not snobby. Our server was Jay and he was fantastic. He had an 8-top and still showed our 2-person party a lot of personalized attention. The wine... More

Small menu/small selection, waiter tried to sell us water when we didn't order a drink, before we looked at menu. He strongly encouraged it. It was supposedly a romantic venue. All one store front room, no privacy. Not at all romantic.

A quaint bistro on Union Street that is easy to find with ample parking. The Eclipse has a great vibe, a creative menu and serves up excellent food. Duck spring rolls with a curry sauce and the asparagus risotto with scallops are great options. One of the better dinning options in Wilmington. Enjoy.

Many interesting choices, including crab fritters and risotto. Be sure to try to lemon tart! Service was very good.

We made our way to the Eclipse Bistro for dinner in spite of a snow storm. We couldn't find the restaurant at first since the snow had covered over the sign, but after studying our GPS we found it. Once inside, we were pleased to see the store filled with patrons. We were wowed by the interior design, warm friendly... More
