One of the best restaurants in town...small, intimate and never anything but the best french food. It is quite small and has never been expanded...it is just like a small bistro in Paris.

They were excellent for a great value no less. The bar tender was friendly, the restaurant is beautiful with a great atmosphere. Old tine ceilings with brick walls. I can't say... More

We the pleasure of having dinner at Caprice Bistro the day that Arthur hit Wilmington NC. The restaurant was not crowded, obviously, but was amazing. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, and offered very good advice about the dishes served. The wine list is really good and overall, the prices for the meal and wine were reasonable. The quality of the... More

We went for a nice dinner on a Wednesday during our vacation to Wrightsville/Wilmington. We were greeted by a friendly and pleasant hostess who asked us where we would like to sit - upstairs is a bit nicer and has a cozier feel than downstairs. After asking if we would prefer a window if didn't mind waiting a few minutes,... More

Delicious food and thoughtful service. Patience is the key word in finding a parking space and more than worth the effort - just arrive a bit early and circle. We didn't have any problems the four times we parked in the little area just outside Caprice's door. It's shady are and close to many other things. If you like fish... More

As the number 1 rated restaurant in Wilmington, I had very high expectations of Caprice Bistro but they were not all fulfilled. Most of the courses that my wife and I had were indeed very good. These included the rillettes and faux gras appetizers which we shared, my chilled potato soup, her trout entree and the apple tart dessert which... More

Our family enjoyed our meal here. The desserts were extremely good - Gateau de Chocolat and Profiteroles. The appetizer (sausage of the day), the entrees (Pork Normandie, Mushroom Crepe, Salmon au Vert, and Duck Confit) were all very good, but they all were missing something that kept them from being excellent. Furthermore, both my wife and I were disappointed with... More

Overall we very much enjoyed our experience at Caprice Bistro. The soup of the day was delicious and the entrees were cooked to perfection. The frites, were good, however Belgian frites they were not. As someone who has eaten frites in Belgium, I was extremely excited to find them here, but I was disappointed that they were not truly Belgian... More
