Caprice never disappoints. Consistently good food, top-notch service, generous portions and reasonable prices. I went with four friends last night and we reserved a table in the window of the upstairs lounge, which is quieter and more softly lighted as opposed to the bistro seating on the ground level. It has a view of Market Street by the river that... More

This restaurant has been one of my favorites in Wilmington. On this visit, we were not able to get a reservation for the dining room on ground level. It was my first time venturing upstairs to their sofa lounge. We had a regular table, though there were assorted sofas up there as well. The upstairs room has a totally different... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington. They have excellent food and very good service. We enjoy the tables by the window in the bar upstairs, reminding us and our friends of European cities....We were there Sunday night and they had our table reserved. Our server, Kristine was superior. We shared the grilled romaine salad and they graciously provided an... More

I have eaten here a few times and stopped in for drinks and appetizers on a few other occasions. I really like the ambiance, especially the upstairs area which has a few couches in the bar area for enjoying drinks. The drink and beer selection is always interesting and the calamari is quite good. It is a great place to... More

Caprice is the kind of restaurant you can count on. The food is consistently yummy, the service is good ( they have one very rude server whom we avoid) and the place is cozy. They have a wonderful downtown location; after dinner, go for a riverfront walk. Our favorites are the pate and mussels for apps (sometimes we just go... More

We had such a good meal here! Loved the sofa lounge for a pre dinner cocktail. I had the steak with a mushroom sauce and frites. It was excellent! The presentation of the food was also nice and the service was great. We will certainly return!

We have eaten here in several occasions. You can enjoy two distinctly different types of experiences. The bistro downstairs is a true bistro set up. Small intimate tables. If you reserve really ask for the window seat or the back booth. Upstairs is a true cocktail lounge feel with couches and artwork. Either way the food is divine. The country... More

The owner of The Verandas B&B recommended Caprice. We didn't have reservations, but we got a table, fortunately upstairs. It's really neat upstairs. The cheese plate was enough for four people. Wine selection was very good. I would go back!

I don't know what took us so long to discover Caprice Bistro but we were certainly glad we did. Spent the evening with good friends, sharing the atmosphere, the great food and the fun staff. Would definitely return.

Forget everywhere else. Don't go to Wilmington and not eat here! It's where the locals send you. Just wonderful!
