French
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 restaurant atmosphere was cozy and warm. Servers were helpful and attentive. Food was very good with enough variety for any palette.

Tables were close, but noise was never an issue. In fact, we exchanged food reviews and recommendations among the tables. It was pleasant and reminded me of many Parisian restaurant experiences.

We have dined in NYC's French restaurants as well as many in Paris. This measures up to them all. The menu is very very French and the ambiance can lead one to believe they are in France. Food is top of the line. We keep coming back for more. When you go, try the Pig's Checks.

Everything was of the usual high standard. The mussels were exceptional. The server named Katie was very good. The Cappuccino could have been hotter.

We had an enjoyable pre-Valentine's dinner at Caprice. Steak Frites were good - although the medium rare steak was more like a medium steak. Dessert was delicious.

Once again, a fabulous dinner experience in the best restaurant in Wilmington NC. A consistent menu with superb European undertones and highly efficient servers makes this restaurant the best of the bests not only in Wilmington but also everywhere else in NC.
The food is delicious, the wine selection is excellent, and the desserts are supreme. I have been in this restaurant numerous times and I had never a bad experience.

We were warmly welcomed immediately upon entering, with a birthday being noted. Service by Jay and Jessica was outstanding; very personable and professional. They, and the excellent meal(s), made for any extremely enjoyable experience. There is only one opportunity to make a great first impression and Caprice certainly hit the mark. We hope to return again soon.

If you like French bistro style food, this is it. Had the menu been in French, we could easily have thought we were in the countryside of France. The owners are equally pleasant.

I have been coming to Caprice Bistro from Raleigh since the first winter it opened. It was incredibly wonderful then and never disappoints. The food is delectable, well prepared, authentic French cooking. The wait staff is friendly, attentive, and gracious. Patrice, the owner along with her husband, is always welcoming and accommodating. It is a joy to go to such a delightful spot.
I brought my teenaged son for the first time on Sunday evening and he was blown away by how much he enjoyed the food. Each dish was better than the last and he thanked me repeatedly for bringing him to Caprice.
This is easily the very best restaurant in Wilmington. Thank you!

One of the finest restaurants in NC. It was a cold night out so whenever the door opens the breeze is very uncomfortable... there is a curtain but people pull it back to pass thru and staff doesn't bother to close it. Unfortunate. I think the noise level is a little high for this fine of a restaurant.
The food is absolutely outstanding. The service was very good and the waiter knew the menu and made some very good observations.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary and had a fantastic dinner. Started out with a french martini which was so good. We shared the escargo appetizer and the sauce alone makes you salivate. So yummy. I had the crepes and my husband had the pork tenderloin. The food is fantastic. Had a great time. Thank you all so much. We will be back.
