I had dinner at 7:00 on a January, Tuesday night. There were just enough diners to warm the gorgeous, glowing wood atmosphere. The host was excellent, as were the wait staff. First time I'd met my dinner companion, so we were delighted to have excellent food and conversation. We each had one of the fish plates - they were beautifully... More

I agree with previous reviewers that you can always count on a good meal, lunch or dinner. We have eaten there several times, always good.

This is an authentic bistro which means a limited menu, but the food is beyond expectations. Service is friendly and very average. The quality of the food clearly makes up for the difference. My jour fish....Rainbow Trout pan-seared (hate the term but superb) done with Étouffée sauce and dirty rice was easily the best Rainbow Trout preparation I've ever had!

You can always count on a great meal here. Great selection of entrees with sophisticated presentation. Seafood dishes are my favorite- perfectly prepared. Casual dining atmosphere. Perfect for business dinners, family dinners, and more.

I have been here for lunch and dinner and found it to be delicious. This can be a little pricey for dinner, but the food, service and ambiance can be worth it. Parking is at a premium.

On the main street, a short ride off I-95 in Wilmington is a "food lovers" delight with plenty of on street parking with a "lot" adjacent for your convenience. Greeted by the very affable and energetic general manager, "Robert" who'll happily seat you at one of the long banquets or individual tables. Seating in this warm & pleasantly decorated venue...

We celebrated our 6th year together last nite at Eclipse. We had the specials and they were! Our server, Mike, was the perfect waiter, just the right amount of attention and very knowledgable about the menu.

We were on our way to Maine and upon trip advisors ratings our hotel graciously provided transportation to this very difficult restaurant to get into! What a phenomenal treat! Our waiter was a very informed delight! We started with the carpaccio and a side of Brussels sprouts, what an outstanding start! For dinner we had the duck special and the... More

Planned a dinner with friends that we see rarely so we wanted it to be special. Eclipse did not disappoint. The service was spot on and the food was excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.

The food is consistently enjoyable and the staff is always engaging. The portions are just right. The drinks at the bar are a generous pour. It gets crowded on weekends so make a reservation ahead of time.
