Delightful ambiance, well prepared food. including sinful desserts. After eating at couple of underwhelming riverside restaurants we were very pleased to find Caprice Bistro. Try the Steak Frites, Pork Normandie or the special Short Ribs, you will not be disappointed. Service can be a tad bit spotty when busy, but I find it helpful to just speak up😊. Make sure... More

Patricia, the owner, is from France. Her entrees are excellent and well priced. The restaurant has taken fresh NC seafood and makes nouveaux French dishes which are lovely to look at and scrumptious to eat. They have done a great job with fusion cuisine based on original French dishes with an update that makes them light and satisfying for the... More

Four of us had dinner at Caprice Bistro in late June; this is a popular place and reservations are strongly recommended. The food, the beverages, the service, and the ambiance are wonderful. This restaurant offers a nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle. My wife had the trout, our two guests had the snapper special, and I had... More

We've been enjoying Caprice Bistro for years now, we go for family celebrations, holidays and well, any reason we can think of to go. The ambience is wonderful and the service is consistently flawless. Chef never fails to delight and Patricia is always so welcoming.

Wonderful restaurant for a nice relaxing romantic evening. Moles mariner were wonderful, baguette delicious - les pomme frites were just perfect. Service was good - attentive without being overbearing. Reminded us of a great little place in Montemartre in Paris.

Fabulous dinner in a super chic setting. We enjoy sitting in the upstairs lounge. The cocktail menu is creative and drinks are just right! Waitstaff is great as well. Somewhere we always go when in downtown Wilmington.

Service was the best. Food was good. We were seated upstairs in the "sofa bar" which was a bit dark with not much ambience. Would probably return but not on a regular basis.

I have probably reviewed Caprice in the past but haven't been there in a few years since I don't visit Wilmington as regularly. I still miss when they were Patou's restaurant in Charlotte! I would still consider this my favorite dining spot in Wilmington. The food and service is excellent and the location is wonderful for walking along the river... More

We love hitting up Caprice Bistro downtown. Love sitting upstairs in the Sofa Bar. Bar tender makes some great cocktails! The food is always great and they showcase work from artists around the area. Definitely one of our favorites downtown on the river!
