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.

    Pork was poor quality and overcooked. Shrimp was good and cooked perfectly. All veggies were over cooked and all food was too sweet, not very tasty nor interesting, but edible. Service was terrific!

    My first time dining at Caprice Bistro, Wow what a find. The food was excellent and the service was beyond reproach. Five stars does not do this establishment justice, it needs to be higher. I now have a new favorite restaurant.

    Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. This was the best dining experience that I have had in the past few years, and Wilmington is my sixth short break for 2022, following Atlanta, Charleston, Asheville, Boston, and Las Vegas. Well done!! The beef bourguignon was excellent.

    We were pleasantly suprised from start to finish with our experience at Caprice Bistro. We sat upstairs where the ambiance was warm and eclectic. Our server was a joy and responsive. The food was superb and reasonably priced for the quality. A 5 star experience. This restaraunt is a treasure in downtown Wilmington. It will be on our favorite restaraunt list from here on out.

    Our go to place downtown for French food. Escargot, rabbit sausage, duck confit - perfect as usual. The wine list is on the smaller side but has a great selection and is reasonably priced. The staff is efficient and attentive. Great spot.

    A gem of a restaurant in the heart of Wilmington. Us three ladies all enjoyed the same entree....the beef Bourguion.. tender pieces of beef in a hearty rich burgundy wine gravy with bacon ..onions and mushrooms. Our waiter was quite attentive and eager to please. Dessert was over the top...I didn't indulge but my friends had creme Brule and an ice cream dish with a chocolate sauce....both looked amazingly delicious. I'm sure we will be back to try something different
