I've liked every single thing I've ever ordered here. Service is always outstanding, and the wine selection is great too. It's a bit crowded inside (especially downstairs) try to be seated upstairs if you can. Would not recommend for families with children as it is a little dark, and crowded as mentioned.

Have been to Caprice Bistro many times and it is always one of our favorite restaurants in the Port City. The service is always special and the food outstanding. Wonderful wine list. I would categorize the wine and food as moderate to higher priced. Restaurant takes reservations and I suggest you make them. Downstairs eating area can be little noisy... More

My wife and I ate there on 7/19/15. It was absolutely one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at. I had the pork chop dinner which was by far one of the best pork hops I've had!! It originally came with collards which I am not a fan of at all! So I could replace it with anything... More

We just had dinner at Caprice. Three couples and we all thought our dinner was outstanding. I had the Swordfish special which was probably the best swordfish I have had in years. It was cooked to perfection. My husband had the Grouper which was also delicious. Very cozy atmosphere. Our waiter was very professional and friendly and helpful. Wonderful service.... More

I took my assistant, his parents and my husband out to dinner as a way of showing my appreciation to my assistant. It was Bastille Day (didn't know until I made the reservation). They had a special menu and we got adventurous, rabbit sausage, pate and calamari for appetizers. All were wonderful. My Beef Burguenon was a little dry however... More

Fabulous food and service right in the middle of historic downtown Wilmington. A little pricey, but worth it! Everything we had was delicious. Wish they had onion soup year-round!

Been to Wilmington before and hadn't been able to dine here. Wasn't disappointed! Ambiance, food, service, and prices are excellent! We had the mussels, prepared perfectly as an appetizer. Great bottle of wine for a great price. I had the duck which was superb and my husband had the triggerfish. We had to have dessert at a French restaurant, so... More

our favorite restaurant in Annapolis, MD is Les Folies. Since we've lived in NC now for 7 months, it's been difficult --- actually impossible -- to find French food as good as Alain Matarat's. Well, we found the place. Caprice is an exceptional jewel in a part of NC that has very few jewels at all. Don't be discourage when... More

This is by far the best French place in town. One of my favorite spots, especially for a romantic dinner. Their Grilled Romaine with Shrimp salad is the best I have had at any French restaurant ever, and I am sure to get it every time I go. Highly recommend if you are in the mood for a quaint little...
