Thierry and Patricia Moity were previous owners of Patou Bistro in Charlotte, NC and Cafe de Bruxelles in New York City.

Delight in Chef Thierry Moity's traditional French cuisine. Chef Moity, who has been cooking since age 13 in some of the finest French restaurants in Europe and New York City. The French cuisine is influenced by a combination of traditions-Patricia comes from the northern part of France near the Belgium border, while Thierry's origins are deeply rooted in the central provinces of the country.

According to Chef Moity, the food is served fast paced and in generous portions." I want everyone to feel welcome in my restaurant". We are working against the stereotype that French food must be intimidating and expensive.

Don’t miss this spot. We would have gone a second time if they were open on Tuesday. The waiter was excellent as was every part of the meal.Next time we visit Wilmington, we’ll definitely dine here.

Table setting was careless. Service was slow in spite there were only two tables in use. French onion was not warm enough and without taste. Main courses were from good to excellent.
Price was too high for the service , ambience and food.

My partner and I decided to go here for date night from a recommendation from a coworker and were absolutely blown away. The drinks were delightful (whisky on the rocks and pear grey goose cocktail), we both got the seafood assortment bowl and it was phenomenal. There were scallops, shrimp, mussels, and 2 types of fish in a clam chowder-like sauce. For dessert, we got the creme brulee and it was to die for. Very creamy without being too sweet. The staff was very knowledgeable and polite and checked in on us an appropriate amount. The ambiance was perfect. It has a small bistro feel to it while also respecting COVID guidelines. A little on the pricier side, but it was fitting for the quality of service and food.

We went for a birthday dinner- the food and the service was outstanding! The portions were huge- mussels were defiantly enough for 2 people. We were not rushed and the ambience was a perfect french bistro! Bon appetit

Caprice is a lovely restaurant that serves delicious food at a good value.
We have eaten here often and enjoy the sophisticated atmosphere .
The food is French/ Belgium and is good quality and a bit different than a typical American restaurant .
Overall the food has been consistent and service is good to fair; depending on who your waiter is.

This place was fabulous! Our waitress, Kat, was very helpful, attentive and friendly! We started with the escargots(a first for me) and it was delish! My daughter had the steak au poivre and it was cooked to perfection and she really enjoyed it! I had the Beef Bourguignon and it was delish - just like the one I had in Paris in 2019!! If I lived in Wilmington, I would visit Caprice Bistro at least once a week!!

What a great place. So happy it’s still around after all these years. Had the pate, escargot, duck and pork. All great, especially the pate and escargot. Next time we go we’ll probably just stick with appetizers and wine. Must try!!

I have not stopped thinking about the food since we left. We had the escargots, and they were unbelievably perfect in every way. I could not stop sopping up the juice with bread. We got the charcuterie planche and if I could, I’d marry the pork pâté. Then, the Waterzooi was phenomenal, another dish to ask for extra bread for, to use for sopping up!

We finished with the macarons, don’t pass them up!

For appetizers we ordered a French onion soup and escargot. Both were delicious. Dinner we had trout and lamb shank. Also, marvelous. Dessert we had there special and was spectacular.
All cocktails were perfection especially the espresso martini.

My boyfriend (now fiancé) and I had a wonderful dinner at caprice bistro Sunday night. The food was excellent and the service was ideal. The romantic atmosphere is very serene perfect for date night. We had a great time and he proposed to me right outside on the water after dinner. Thank you caprice bistro for helping set the mood to make life long memories!

It was a first for us at Caprice. As a french trying a french restaurant in the USA my expectations were big.I think 2020 is not a year to test the quality of a restaurant and I will give another try later. The food was very good which is a good point. Deserve a second chance to reach excellent.

We went to the Caprice Bistro for our 50th wedding anniversary and the staff made it most memorable. Our waitperson, Kat, was attentive and knowledgeable. The PEU mussels and Waterzooi were totally outstanding. I highly recommend the Caprice Bistro for a special night out.
