In town for a holiday basketball tourney, my wife and I had one free night for a fun dinner. With little planning we landed at Caprice Bistro...and I'm so glad we did.

Here's the short story: locate this restaurant anywhere that appreciates authentic French cuisine - New York, Lyon, San Francisco, you name it - and the patrons will be wowed. This is as good as bistro fare gets, period.

Go to this restaurant. Drive miles to go out of your way to stop by. Tell your friends. Caprice Bistro is a true gem: a restaurant which harkens back to the joy of earlier times in in the French countryside. At least that's what the food tasted like!

Wonderful cuisine, prepared with fresh locally grown herbs. Very good waiter, who always remembers us, even though we only come a few times per year.

We went with a group of five and everyone was totally satisfied with food and service.
I had the dinner portion of Mussels and it was among the best I have ever had. My wife loves the rabbit and always orders it. The prices are very reasonable.
It is possibly the best restaurant in Wilmington and without a doubt the best French cuisine.

Had the Waterzooi. Excellent! Very intimate dining upstairs and we could people watch out the window to the street below. One of the best reataurants I have been to. Wished I lived closer so we could enjoy it more often.

We truly enjoyed our first visit to the Caprice Bistro! The atmosphere was welcoming and warm and inviting. The wait staff was professional, well informed, and attentive. The food was fabulous! We had mussels, escargot, the mahi-mahi special, a pasta dish and a great selection of desserts for the table to share (we were 6 people). Wow.. everything was superb, nicely presented, and just delicious. The owner/chef and his wife, who is the hostess, even came out to chat with us. What a great place to enjoy a wonderful meal. We can't wait to visit Wilmington again and have another dinner at the Caprice Bistro!
