I love that this is such an intimate place to dine. It is unique and the menu is great! Food is delicious and the service is excellent. The mussels were superb!! They were as delicious as what I had in France. Don't forget the dessert!

We reserved online, they got it. Seated immediately. Great service, wonderful food. We had the escargot, ooohhh great. I had the pasta with spinach, mushrooms etc, great. Ordered the special, chicken stuffed with goat cheese, wonderful, but skin on, and on bone? But delicious!

The first restaurant we ate at in Wilmington was Caprice Bistro over a dozen years ago upon our B & B's recommendation. It was excellent then and remains so today. We probably dine here 4 to 5 times each year and the food and service...More

I agree with all the other answers: smart casual. Collar shirt for men; nice slacks, capris, or simple daytime dress for women. Yes, you do see everything there but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be nicely dressed to dine... More
