I love this restaurant because the atmosphere is intimate and authentic, the service is excellent and the food is fabulous. The curried mussels are fantastic. Be sure to save some French bread to dip in the sauce.

Went to Caprice prior to going to a play for heavy appetizers and drinks. Wonderful assortment to choose from such as pork bellies, pate and a wonderful cheese platter. I can’t recommend them more highly!

This is a delightful bistro that lots of locals love although it is in the heart of the downtown touristy area. Great atmosphere, good service and the food, at least the mussels avec frites, was delicious!

This has been our go-to comfort downtown place for years as the food is reasonably priced and consistently good. We have eaten pretty much everything on the menu and have found the service good and the wine list reasonable and wines knowledgeable selected.

I agree with all the other answers: smart casual. Collar shirt for men; nice slacks, capris, or simple daytime dress for women. Yes, you do see everything there but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be nicely dressed to dine... More
