Try the Waterzooie if you are a fish and shellfish fan. It is from an authentic Belgian recipe and is simply delicious! The steak and "frites" is always excellent. In beautiful historic downtown Wilmington, near the river walk and next door to ice cream unless you have already had their excellent Creme Brulee.

This is our go to place. Whenever we have folks visiting from out of town, this is restaurant we always take them to. Food is fabulous, location is close to river and in the middle of town, staff extremely accommodating. I usually go with the special while my husband sticks with the muscles, he loves them,!!!

What a wonder. Enjoyed an early evening Sunday dinner. Perfect French escargot and charcuterie board aperitif. Dinner was lamb and NY strip steak. The dinner was great, but let me tell you, our appetizers and wine were the star of the show. Impeccable service by our waiter, Jay and his server assistant. Wish we had room for the pistachio creme... More

We arrived for our reservation and I went up to desk to check in. Some locals arrived after us, so we were skipped over and they were "fawned over" and promptly seated. HELLO I was here first with a reservation... not asking to be squeezed in. We were seated at a nice table with a view if you twisted your... More

Met friends there for dinner. Obviously its not on the river or have great views but the upstairs is so very cool for drinks and dinner. The garlic potatoes were so good, I cleaned them off my plate (and even let my husband have a few) even though I try cut back on the carbs. They were worth every mouthful.... More

We have been to the Caprice at least a half dozen occasions if not more, although it has been a few years since we last attended. First of all, it did not appear that the menu had changed at all since the first time we visited years ago. Quite unusual. Everyone in the party was quite pleased with their appetizers,... More

I tried to make a reservation 4-6 weeks ahead of time for a large group. They told me to call back 2-3 weeks out. When I did, they couldn't fit my group in. Everyone was really disappointed.

My group of friends look forward to birthdays now that we always celebrate at Caprice Bistro! My friends swear that their mussels are the best with several sauces offered. I love the fixed price menu and enjoyed the mello salad, chicken Entree (this time) and vanilla creame brûlée. On Sundays, there is a nice selection of wines by the bottle... More
