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

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.
