The Best Restaurant in Wilmington, Hands Down

My husband and I have been to Caprice Bistro several times for dinner, and every time seems to be better than the last. I have never had anything here that wasn't excellently prepared and utterly delicious. Last night we started with a few pre-meal martinis at the quaint martini bar, which are... read more

This has quickly become our favorite restaurant within 100 miles! The food is ALWAYS perfectly prepared. The service is OUTSTANDING. At the SLIGHTEST sign of neglect, improper service or food delivery, Patricia, the owner, is on-the-spot to correct the issue! Not once have we been disappointed. Her husband is the chef and his product is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Try to arrange... More

I love this spot, and you can be assured you will find excellent food, reasonable prices, attentive management and staff as well as romance and wine. They are making great food, superb quality and attention to detail as well as options for lunch or cocktails after dinner. We had an enjoyable meal this past Saturday evening; a special event for...

Visiting relatives that live near by they had reservations for the last night we were in town. We had heard ,any good things about the Bistro and knew that others had rated this as one of the best in town. Because we were a group I was able to sample a variety of food and all were very good.

I reviewed their restaurant a few years ago having enjoyed it as well then yet on this occasion I found it exceptional. The 'wait staff' was both present / obliging while being unobtrusive. But I was there for the food. And besides being perfect taste wise, it was perfect in that the 15 of us was served at the same... More

A quaint French Bistro close to the river walk, but not at all "touristy". The seafood was fresh and well prepared and the wine was excellent. Cozy atmosphere.

I don't know if I can describe how wonderful this restaurant is. One of the few open in the city on Christmas Eve, I found out they had been pre-booked for ages, but the hostess/co-owner told me to come on in and if I didn't mind sitting at the bar....and the rest was history. The bartender - wish I could... More

I have been going to this place for 12 plus years and the food has always been very good. So many restaurants come and go but you can always count on this place. Seating is tight and can be a little noisy but the food and location outweigh the negatives. After dinner your half a block from the river with... More

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary in Wilmington and saved our last dinner for Caprice Bistro. The reservation was easy through Opentable. This is a small place so I'm sure at times it is difficult to be seated. I had the escargot appetizer and it was outstanding. It was served in a bowl with a cream sauce and a generous... More
