Caprice is a great restaurant but I was a bit disappointed the last time I came. I ordered their specialty "the waterzooi" and it was good with lots of different seafood but I thought the fish and shrimp had a farm raised taste which brought...More

Took my bride there for Valentine’s Day after she picked me up at the Wilmington Airport. Intimate setting with outstanding French quisine dishes. They treated us like royalty!

Best French menu variety and quality (and fair pricing) in the region, along with some Southern / local (usually seafood) entrees having a French twist or two as do the mixed drinks on occasions. Good service with customizing and candid advice. Charming place.

Wonderful food in a romantic and cozy atmosphere by the riverfront. Make a dinner reservation, because you will likely need it. Be sure to get there a bit early to haunt the bar upstairs. And, most of all, the food and service are worth it.

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
