Very busy Friday evening at 7 PM. Almost a full house. Service was very good, a whole server crew hustle big-time and pull together as a team to make it happen. A very pleasant experience. The noise level in the restaurant with almost all the tables for who is very high

The Cesar salad is delicious and a good share. Salmon and sides really good My scallops were perfectly cooked. The corn fritters inedible.

Great ambiance. David was so pleasant when he sat us and Aleah is potentially the BEST server I have experienced as a diner. The food was dynamite. I subbed fries for the creamed spinach with the Rib Eye and that was the right move in my mind. The bread served was delicate and flavorful. We also very much enjoyed the Bolognese. Oh yeah and the Shrimp Tacos as a starter, fabulous! All accompanied by a bottle of Michael David Petite Petit which paired wonderfully with the bolognese but surprisingly not so great with the steak. All in all and incredibly enjoyable evening right down to the conversation with an older couple seated next to us who were very popular as they had many other guests stop by their table to chat. We highly recommend this little bistro.

Have a monthly dinner at Eclipse with relatives. Would never consider going elsewhere. The food is always imaginative and delicious. The wait staff is knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. And the cost is very reasonable given the quality. The scallops with corn fritters and a mildly spicy chorizo accompaniment was to die for and the wedge salad is the best I’ve ever had.

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 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.
