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!

Appreciate going here as they follow COVID protocols which gives us peace of mind.
Because of that we really can kick back and enjoy ourselves.

Our table was ready for our reservation. Service was very friendly without being too much so. Given the times, the menu had no specials but was sufficient to appeal to four diverse appetites. The calamari starter is excellent, not greasy and with an aoli sauce rather than the ubiquitous marinara. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. The pasta was not overcooked and was very delicious. Highly recommend the cosmopolitan.

First time we’ve been in since the shutdown and we were extremely happy with our experience. Fantastic service, as usual. It was very clean and disposable menus were used, and all staff members work masks. We were socially distant from others in the restaurant. The food was delicious as it always is. We can’t wait to head back ASAP!

Our meal was excellent. I have a dietary restriction which often limits the options and makes for a bland meal. But the chef was creative, made substitutions and the meal was delicious. Looking forward to our next visit to Eclipse.

We drove over from NJ and thoroughly enjoyed our meal over several hours on a Thursday night. Our desire to have several courses spread out over the evening panned out perfectly. Each dish was delicious and well plated. Our two favorites of the night were the crispy fries with garlic aioli and the pappardelle bolognese. Excellent attentive service!

My husband and I went to Eclipse for our 33rd wedding anniversary. The food and drinks were excellent as well as the service. I had noted on my OpenTable reservation that we were there for our anniversary. It was a very nice surprise when our waiter and the manager brought our desserts each with a candle and wished us happy anniversary. A very nice touch. Perfect evening!

Service was excellent as was the food. We started with the Bistro salad and the Bistro Calamari (lightly battered along with a wonderful red chili aioli sauce, diced tomatoes and olives which add a wonderful mixture of flavors). We followed with our entrees, Seared Scallops and the catch of the day North Atlantic Salmon. We paired these dishes with a wonderful bottle of Brunori Verdicchio.
We completed this wonderful meal with a Creme Brûlée to cleanse the palate and quench our sweet tooth!
