Delicious mussels, salad nicely dressed, their take on floating island for dessert was delicious. Servers well trained and unobtrusive but friendly. Entirely satisfactory.

Caprice Bistro has become our regular "date night" stop. The food is consistently wonderful. The duck liver mousse is heavenly and my husband loves the escargots. There is no going wrong with any of the crepes and if you like mussels they are a must to try here! There is not an entree that we don't love, but the waterzooi... More

No stuffed shirts in this place.... More

Such a great little place in Wilmington. Never have had a bad meal here. Consistent, quaint and really everything one would expect. Menu favorites: waterzoooi, duck confit, moules e frites, crepes au fromage...macarons and chocolate mousse or floating island for dessert. Our, oui!

Usually we drink wine from their reasonable and solid wine list, but on the last visit with our adult son, we sat upstairs at the bar where my son... More

This restaurant was everything I hoped it would be :) it was absolutely beautiful with its Parisian flair and the food as to die for. Everything on the menu was delicious from appetizers to desserts. It is more on the pricy side but it is incredibly worth it. The staff were more than generous and friendly. Overall, I would come... More
