I tried to book a table on Open table but the restaurant was booked. We decided to try anyway and it was packed. The owner offered we got to... More

My wife and I recently had dinner at the Caprice Bistro. We did not have reservations and were told that we could eat upstairs at the bar. Well, it turned out to be a magnificent dinner and a very enjoyable evening out in Wilmington. Our server was Katrina and she was so nice and explained all the various dinner options... More

Caprice in Wilmington is among my all time favorites. When I have only one chance to dine out in Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, I also gravitate to Caprice on Market Street down by the riverfront. French Bistro with an 11 year run. Love those folks. Tuna tartare, chicken liver pate smooth as silk. trout almondine, coq au vin. Classics. Service staff who... More

We had our Anniversary dinner at Caprice Bistro. It is not very quiet and our table was right next to other tables. At first we were not sure this was a good thing but after bread, a glass of wine and an awesome cheese plate, it really didn't matter. Folks around us were so sweet. The service was great and...

What can I say. After all that we had heard we were very eager to go. 7 of us went and 5 of us are foodies and eaten all over the world. Much in France. The food's not bad but the service was horrible. The server did not introduce herself, interact with us at all, come back and ask how... More

Just went upstairs for drinks, next time will come for dinner. Great adult atmosphere with killer martini list and rye whiskey. Loved it.

How do i sum up Caprice Bistro in one word? Amazing. From appetizers to entrees to desserts and service. All amazing! We have been to basically every restaurant in town and this is our new favorite spot. Elegantly plated and reasonably priced. Our server, who's name I can't recall but know he is originally from Connecticut was unbeatable. Top notch.... More

Wonderful place. Went there for the first time for dinner and were truly impressed. The House Specialty (The Waterzooi) and the Duck Confit were fantastic. But besides the food, our server Katie was the best. I have to say she was the best, most attentive without being overbearing on the ball server we have had in a very long time.... More

The is an unexpectedly chic restaurant. We had a reservation, and was promptly seated upon arriving. As we settled in our table upstairs, we noticed the really unique paintings. There were couches throughout with people laughing, and having a good time. It was a very nice vibe, with low lighting and background music. We started with the cheese board, which... More
