Went during Restaurant Week with friends but it was only for dinner. Too bad. Those with the salmon salad loved it, especially with the dressing the waiter suggested. Burger was amazing, as were the fries (everyone got to try - there were enough to share) and the turkey Ruben was a hit.

Eclipse is a true Bistro, small and unpretentious. Although it was full, it felt like we were the only people in the place at our table of four. The food is always good with some dishes better than others. Scallops were a little salty and the Ravioli was a little too al dente. The short ribs were excellent. We wanted the paella but they were sold out. Wait staff is very good.

Eclipse is a great option for a unique night out. The perfect place for a date night! The ambience contains unique decor and low lighting. You can dress up and enjoy fine dining. Highly recommend the Brussels sprout and cauliflower appetizer to start. The ribs as an entree were delicious, with a sweet cornbread crumble paired with a little bit of a kick in the succotash.
Cocktails are fairly priced for the pours you get. The black cosmo was delicious!

Service was fantastic! Nick had our drinks full and gave the best recommendations. We will be back!

I have gone to Eclipse Bistro for as long as it has been open. As with all restaurants they have their ups and downs, but Thursday night they were spot on ! Our entire table felt the food was excellent and the service efficient. The Brussel sprout - Cauliflower starter was perfect, not too oily as it has been in the past, my duck breast was accompanied by root vegetables and caramelized onions that were superb ! As we come out of the pandemic, this is one place to support.

It was our first time there and couldn’t be happier. The food was delicious and the service was even better. We opted for outdoor seating and had the whole block to ourselves. Even being outside, our server was very attentive. We’ll be back!

We had a wonderful meal at Eclipse Bistro on Sunday August 30, 2020. The apps. of duck spring rolls and bistro calamari were excellent. The seared scallops & heritage duck breast mains were the best my wife and I have had in years. Our server Justin L. provided excellent service!

We don’t eat out much but I have fond memories of Eclipse and so, for our 54th Anniversary dinner, I chose Eclipse. It did not disappoint! Scallops with fennel salad was delicious. And the staff- well, they were wonderful. Happy, prompt, thoughtful and friendly. We left with full hearts and bellies!
