Did not expect to find authentic French in Wilmington. Wandered in and had fantastic mussels and incredible dinner. Frites were excellent. Entrees were excellent, especially the waterzooi. Wine list was appropriately French as well. Agree with other eaters, this is a great find.

We ate dinner upstairs. The waiter was top notch. And the food was outstanding. We had the lamb shank, duck, mussels & frites and a crepe! Everything was very delicious, melt in your mouth good! We definitely recommend this place and will be back.

We recently had dinner on a Saturday night at Caprice Bistro and every thing was just right. We could not have asked for better. The service was friendly and professional, and the Waterzooi (house specialty), the Mahi Mahi (daily catch) and the Salmon au Vert...More
