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.

The ambiance is perfect. We ate in the sofa bar upstairs. The food is delicious and beautifully plated and the service is impeccable. I hope they will be able to survive the Coronavirus. It truly is a very special restaurant.

We got the best table in the house, next to the window. Our waiter was wonderful, answered all our questions, and made some great recommendations. I had the steak au poivre, and my wife had the mahi mahi. Both were excellent, and the sauces complemented the meals very nicely. We did a dessert sampler that included creme brulee. I an not usually a fan, but this one was superb! Shows what happens when something is really done well! There were so many things on the menu I would like to try. We'll definitely be back!

Small, intimate restaurant. Tables close together, and it can get noisy. However, the service was excellent; and the food was top-notch and reasonably priced.

Pork chops were excellent and the brandy sauce was plate-licking good. Followed up with profilitores for dessert - the 3 mini ice cream filled puffs retained their crunch and the warm chocolate sauce was outstanding. Table spacing is somewhat tight, but it was not crowded this particular evening so all was good. On a busy night I could imagine it being a bit loud and cramped - but after all it is a bistro!

We were delighted to find this charming French restaurant. We both had the Duck Confit- it was cooked perfectly, moist, and with just the right amount of light orange flavor. It was paired with an artisanal salad with Dijon mustard in the dressing, and small red potatoes. Best meal since we returned from France in June last year. Will definitely return!

It started off not so well. We were put downstairs after requesting the much nicer upstairs. We were told it was too busy. We were placed beside a drunken Middle Ages group of women who became louder and louder. We were finally placed upstairs. Much better. Don’t go unless you are upstairs. Downstairs seating was beyond uncomfortable. The waiter upstairs was much better as well. As for the food, it was pretty good but nothing spectacular. Dessert was bland.

Great food and a nice vibe. The Duck confit, mussels and rabbit sausage app were fantastic.
Wider selection of bourbon and rye would be nice.
Very happy we chose Caprice for our dinner meeting.
Great value and experience for the money.

A classic French Bistro with food that is excellent, a knowledgeable wait staff, and ambiance to match. We were four and had rabbit, duck and fish; all were excellent. I love this place and am surprised that I don't think to eat there more often.

All four adults had different dinner entrees. All four were excellent. The waitress brought two orders of mushroom soup instead of French onion, but they were enjoyed and the waitress apologized with sincerity; and removed the charges as good will. Everything we ate and drank was outstanding! It is the best restaurant in Wilmington.

The food--appetizer, salad, entrees (we both had Waterzooi) were wonderful! We will definitely be back.

The only downsides at all were that the seating is very tight (we were at a table for two on the first floor) and it was fairly loud. We were there relatively early on a Tuesday evening, pre-theatre, so presumably those issues are even more pronounced on weekends and later in the evening. Those attributes take it off the list for romantic evenings or special occasion dining for us.
