We ordered brussels and cauliflower app, salads and dinner. The app was good. The salads were good. My husband ordered steak which came with cubed potatoes. He loved the steak but the potatoes were not anything to write home about. They seemed more like a breakfast potato. I ordered Shrimp linguine. The way the dish was described did not lead me to think it was in a red sauce. It was still good and the linguine was definitely homemade but I did have to add salt (I never have to add salt to anything). It lacked some flavor. Still good food and nice ambiance. We look forward to trying Eclipse again not during a holiday.

My wife and I ate there for Valentine's Day dinner. They offered a special menu for Valentine's Day, with some items from their standard menu as well as some special items. We had a nice, ample appetizer with cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and prosciutto. We brought half of it home and ate it the next night. My wife had a crab with ravioli dish, and I had sea bass. Both were delicious. We were most impressed by the wait staff. They were in constant, rapid motion. Our waiter visited us frequently, and made sure that we were satisfied with our dinners.

The restaurant is smaller than we had expected from looking at the satellite photo, but they make efficient use of the space. Don't expect to have a lot of space between your table and other diners, though. The noise level wasn't too high, and conversation was not difficult.

We will definitely consider returning sometime in the future. We were very happy with the experience.

It took a bit long for our server to be available to take our cocktail order, but then everything moved ahead at a good pace. Just pretty noisy but everyone was enjoying themselves, for sure. Food was great and nicely presented

Had a great time with my girlfriend celebrating her birthday. Very good cocktails, wine, and NY Strip Steaks for dinner. Great service, and would highly recommend.

It was such a special experience for my husband and I! I took him there for his birthday and we were really taken care of. The only two suggestions are: 1. Give more bread with meat and cheese plate, 2. Give more than one scoop of ice cream with chocolate cake for dessert (the cake is so rich, it needs more ice cream to compliment each bite). We were charged $3.50 for an extra scoop of ice cream the size of a small strawberry. All in all, it was a wonderful experience with great service!

Eclipse is so consistent, that I was a bit disappointed in my latest visit. The wait between the server's visits to our table seemed a bit long, and when he was there he (and we) were a bit rushed. All the courses were typically excellent, except for the Special that evening, which was mediocre. Eclipse has been so good for so long that I view this latest experience as an anomaly, and I look forward to my next visit.

The food is consistently excellent. The service is always on point. It is an open dining room so there can be a touch of noise. But the cocktails are well-crafted and I’ve never left unsatisfied with a meal.

Went to Eclipse for New Year's Eve - an early dinner to avoid the late night partiers. The place is great - I have been there several times before, which is why I always go back. The wait staff is knowledgeable about the menu and often offers excellent recommendations, which I always appreciate, since the menu changes frequently - all good. The food is always excellent and thoughtfully prepared. Plates are attractive when they come out - makes you want to dig in right away! I will definitely be going back!

Eclipse is consistently excellent - food, service and atmosphere! Dining and conversing at a comfortable pace. So many owner/chefs are chasing the millennials and their loud and fast selfie culture. Too few good dining experiences exist
