We had a wonderful dinner at Caprice Bistro last week. We did not make reservations because it is “off season” and had no trouble getting a table upstairs. I think that tables by the windows require a reservation, so please check. The tables are closely spaced together by US standards but not by French standards. The upstairs, even with its... More

It is easily 12 years since I first set foot in Caprice Bistro. I am not sure what exactly I ordered then but the memory of warmth, a friendly greeting and excellent service remains. Since then we have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and more than just a few casual date nights there and have never been disappointed. My "go to" are... More

I took my wife to Caprice Bistro for her birthday, a 3 1/2 hour drive from our home. It was worth every minute of the drive time and more. I had visited Caprice solo several years ago and was so impressed I knew I wanted to take my wife there sometime. Her birthday was the perfect occasion. We over-nighted near... More

Many restaurants on a quiet Weds in Jan may be forgiven for being under par but Caprice has such high standards that this visit was just as good as every other. The Osso Bucco special and the Normandie pork chop in particular were winners in our group. Great, friendly service from Chris guides you through the seasonal choices. And do... More

This is hands down the best restaurant in Wilmington with Pinpoint being a close second. There's a reason that in a place with a strong tourism industry and a high turnover rate for restaurants, Caprice Bistro is still going strong after so many years. I had dreams about the waterzooi for a week after I ate there. I highly recommend... More

Ate at Caprice Bistro in early December 2016. My wife and I have visited here about 10 or more times. This last time was possibly the best. The bar tender makes a great drink and the chef is World Class. Fantastic food, you can't go wrong with anything you order. Desserts are absolutely out of this world. Perfect ambiance, you... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington . On Christmas Eve they always have a special menu. We enjoy our tradition of dining at Caprice and being part of the holiday crowd. Katy was our server last evening and she was wonderful. The food was superior, salmon en croute , only available for special occasions. Lovely appetizer selection and a... More

If you want to have a romantic or just a high-class evening on the town, plan on Caprice. My girlfriend and I have been to Caprice on a number of occasions for birthday celebrations, date nights, and to share the restaurant with our family. The location is right on Market St in a small two-story building. Upstairs houses a sofa... More

My wife and I visited in Nov. of 2016. Nice little bistro. Seating is a bit tight, but Bistro's usually are. As for appetizers, I have the Escargot and Calamari. My wife says the Calamari was fantastic and I thought the Escargot was OK. For an entree, my wife ordered the Salmon and she could have not been more pleased.... More
