Caprice is always a great choice, Downtown Wilmington location, small atmosphere, servers who know every item on the menu inside and out and each dish is unique and prepared at a skill level that is unmatched. This place has it all. Small plates, regular entrees, interesting choices and fresh local options. It is one of the best places to dine... More

We called and made a reservation for when they opened since they were across the street from where we took the trolley tour and not to far for my elderly parents to walk. It is a French restaurant and the food and service was outstanding!!! We had the escargot which was so very tasty and prepared in a different way... More

Went with my son on a weeknight after seeing the sights in Wilmington. He ordered the special chicken dish and I opted for the duck. Sever seemed annoyed that I brought a kid to their establishment. My son is 15, well mannered and more than appropriately dressed. He eats just as much as any adult :) Loved the food and... More

I was lying in bed at 9pm at the courtyard checking trip advisor for places to eat nearby for the coming days. Saw this place was very close, rated high and there was escargot on the menu so I got my lazy butt dressed and walked over. Caprice Bristro is a small French restaurant on the downtown Wilmington strip. I... More

This was a surprisingly good restaurant with wonderful food and great service. I would recommend getting a seat upstairs in the corner by the window. That allows you to look at all of the activity in the street and you can watch everything going on in the restaurant. We mainly had appetizers but you should check out the dessert menu.... More

This is a small and cozy restaurant with a European feel. After we were seated it took some time for our waiter to acknowledge our presence. When he did, I did not feel particularly welcomed and his service was not particularly inspired. The wine list was fine, but I chose a lovely special martini. We had found their menu online... More

We have gone to this restaurant many times but on our last visit both the food and the service was superb. We love mussels and theirs are some of the best. I love mine in the curry sauce. With frites and a bowl of fresh gazpacho. The meal was wonderful. Drinks good too. Of all of downtown Wilmington. This is... More
