We were told to come here by a friend. I cannot add anything more than all the other reviews. It is a truly great place. We loved it and will definitely come back. A lot of people know about this place. It was busy from the time it opened at 5pm and was getting full by 7pm. Not bad for... More

I ate at the bar and the bartender was very friendly and knew a lot about the area. The food was quite tasty (escargots and pistachio encrusted salmon) and the wine selection was good. The bar area is very unique with couches and small tables as well as high tops and the counter - colorful artwork. The service is very... More

We went to Caprice for a birthday dinner and I was very impressed by the atmosphere. It's a little dark when you first walk in, but your eyes quickly settle on the beautiful artwork and decor around you. We ate upstairs, where there is a bar and small lounging area. Almost everyone got the mussels and loved them. I had... More

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

The food was beautifully presented and incredibly good. I had the Belgian Endive Salad, with goat cheese and a delicious red beet dressing. Then the Crepe Forestierre – the sauce was so good, so French – probably the best crepe I’ve ever had. The Belgian Chocolate Cake was wonderful. Service was efficient and friendly. 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!

My wife and I have been regularly coming here for over 10 years. Great mussels, pork cheeks, duck, frogs legs and solid entrees make this experience like a trip to Brussels. 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
