Our daughter recommended this restaurant. We made a reservation for Eclipse Bistro for their first slot of the evening - 5:30. We were over a half an hour early coming from a local winery. The door was open and the manager greeted us at the door asking us to have a seat at the bar while they finished their employee... More

My wife and I recently had a meal at Eclipse. We have gone there about three times a year for the past ten years. The menu is a bit limited and predictable, but we have never had a bad meal. This time was a very good Caesar salad. I followed with one of their fish specials, and my wife had... More

This restaurant is somewhat pricey, so naturally we think it should be special. My wife and I shared an appetizer - cauliflower and brussel sprouts - which was delicious. Her main dish was catch of the day baramundi which she enjoyed but said was kind of salty. I got tuna, and was surprised that it was not very fresh -... More

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

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.
