Let's start with pleasant greeting upon entering. Then, we decided to go upstairs to quaint bar with a variety of seating areas from high tops to sofas. Quite lovely. There is even some local art on wall, but must say it's style takes away from the atmosphere. The art will be for someone, but that's not why we were there..... More

Classic European restaurant and atmosphere. Cozy and comfortable. Upstairs sofa bar. Predictable. Has been a Wilmington staple for decades while others come and go.

This was the absolute best cheese tray we have had, and that includes our experiences in France. The bartender, Chris, was highly skilled and very hospitable.

Likely the only place in W-town where you can get a mixed drink that tastes good. Food is excellent French. Ambience is a little more sophisticated than the other nearby options (except Circa).

I have eaten at Caprice Bistro several times and the food has always been excellent. Also check out the martini bar upstairs a hidden jewel for pre-dinner cocktails.

I had the lamb shank and my wife had the salmon dish. Both were prepared wonderfully and the service from Jack our waiter was impeccable. The only negative I have is that a glass of California Chardonnay cost $11.00, a bit much. But everything else overshadowed the wine and we would come back here in a heartbeat.

It was a very happy accident that we found ourselves at Caprice Bistro Sunday night after our flight from ILM to LGA was cancelled due to bad weather. It was a delight! I had the Crepe Fromage and my husband the trout. The service was great. We were in Paris in September and this was the best meal we had... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Wilmington. The ambiance is genuine, the food is fresh and well prepared, the service is both good and understated, and the bar/wine list is better than most. When reading the reviews, keep in mind that Caprice is actually a bistro, low on pretension, but seeking to deliver quality food and beverage at a reasonable... More
