Food was ok but not great. We were told that the mussels were good here so we wanted to try it. Although the sauce (curry) was delicious at least 1/3 of the mussels didn't open. We eat mussels out a lot and it is not uncommon for one or two to not open there were 10 that did not open... More

Everything here is delicious. It's a small dining area and I have felt like it's less intimate. But food is worth it. The upstairs bar is great.

Here in the historic area of Wilmington is an authentic French Restaurant. Great selection, presentation, and taste. People are extra friendly and understand French Cuisine. Eating in several areas of France, this is as good as it gets and it's in Wilmington. Don't miss it if you have the time.

Caprice Bistro lived up to the many rave reviews we had heard. To begin, the atmosphere is comfortable,sedate & certainly professional. Although we did not have a reservation, our mid-week seating was easily & quickly available. The table service was excellent from start to finish, which I found rather refreshing in Wilmington. My dinner included: the Pate Mason (wonderful); a... More

Owned and operated by a French couple, this restaurant offers authentic bistro cuisine in a cosy atmosphere and at reasonable prices. So much so that we had dinner there the two evenings we spent in Wilmington. The asparagus salad is great, the steak-frites as well and the service is fast and friendly. The wine list offers a good selection at... More

This riverfront-district place was recc to us by our host at the Taylor House Inn & it lived-up to his rave review. Just be sure to go online early in the day to place your reservation. Caprice Bistro is authentic
