Our server Alia/Ahlia (Didn't see how it was spelled) was an angel. The food was great and they were very accommodating to our friend with allergies.

Went especially for the calamari appetizer and that was off the menu. Not their fault they are having a hard time getting fresh calamari. We will definitely go back but will call first to see if it’s back on the menu. Best calamari of anywhere we’ve eaten.
Robert is great and our server Lizzie was outstanding.

Great Service. Cauliflower soup wasn’t like most I’ve had or what would normally be expected of a cream of cauliflower. It was much too sweet for my palate. The Eclipse Burger was out of this world with delicious fries to accompany it. Server was very attentive but prices were a little high for the location and time it took for the food service. Overall good experience.

The food was excellent. I preferred the filet and my date ordered the scallops. Both were wrought to please. The menu had enough choices to please but not too many to be intimidating.

The Special Gazpacho soup was good, but since it had no tomatoes, it should not have been called Gazpacho. I use 3 different recipes to make Gazpacho every summer using our home-grown tomatoes. The pork entree was OK, not impressive. Espresso was very good.

Excellent first experience but I just wish there was more vegetables options. All greens. Green beans, Brussel sprouts, spinach and asparagus. A colorful mixed option would be nice. I eat for my blood type and have noticed it is accurate. Carrots, sweet potatoes would be nice to add. Not just greens. Just a suggestion. We loved it there and will definitely be back soon.

B’day dinner and we were Winterthur Museum and Gardens, and decided to give you restaurant a try. The service was great, but the food was at best mediocre given the price. We are not likely to come again.

Greeted by name as we arrived. The staff was very attentive. It was my birthday and they gave me a card?!?! I did leave it on the table :( though. The menu had a variety to offer and the food was delicious. Our party of three had the corn agnolotti, the salmon and the scallop entrees. So good.

I love the Platinum Dinner Group restaurants. Always a delight.

Eclipse remains one of the most delicious and lovely places to have a nice dinner. The whole meal, from cocktail to appetizer to main to dessert and coffee, was perfect. The service was excellent, and everyone was friendly without being hovering. It did get louder as the evening went on (and the bar filled up), but that's only to be expected on a Saturday night and in a small space.

I've been here for dinner twice and it was very good, so I thought I'd try lunch. Got the burger which was cooked well, but not placed on the bun properly so the contents started falling out and the bun was difficult to hold. I asked for fries well done and got a pile of greasy fries.

This is the quintessential neighborhood bistro, where the service is excellent the food is great and they know your name. What more can you ask for? Every time we come here, whether it's just to have a cocktail or a dinner with friends, it never disappoints. I can see this being our "empty nest" regular haunt in a year.

Our server was Nick who is the gold standard of customer service in hospitality; great personality, well versed on menu items and preparation. Makes quick work of mental guest profiling for spot-on recommendations. Anticipates guests next moves/thoughts and beats them to it for ease and comfort level of guest. And, he's not bad to look at either. The bartender was Andrew whose love for the art of what he does was demonstrated in the thoughtfulness and creativity of something as simple as lemonade. He made us feel special....just because. Chef, to you and the culinary creative behind you, you put your thing down! Finally, host/manager Robert (takes ownership and may be one or a partner) is accommodating and appreciative of the 'choice' diners make. Most importantly he understands the value of EXEMPLARY service; a tenet I imagine he knew long before Covid. We had a lovely time and I am excited to return with even more people. THANK YOU!

The Brussel sprouts are very good if you like the char taste. My family enjoyed it very much. The cheesesteak egg rolls were crispy and cheesy. I was full just eating that. The chicken and duck entrees needed more sauce or seasoning. The gnocchi together with the bechamel sauce was a bit too rich and heavy. Overall a good experience but no rush to come back.

One of the best restaurants in Wilmington, but not up to par tonight. My wife’s scallops that she raved about the last time we were there were served luke warm at best. While they were deducted from our bill, it was disappointing to have that happen at such a nice restaurant. It seems like they may be shuffling people between other Platinum group restaurants. If that is what is happening, that isn’t a good idea. It was our first disappointing meal there and I think we will give it a break before going.
