    The pretty restaurant was cool (very important on a 90+ degree day!) and we had a lovely meal with delicious salads - the Caesar and Wedge were fantastic - and we were both delighted with our main courses, a special chicken with gorgeous sauce and the scallops. We topped it off with a creme brulee. So happy we decided to go to Eclipse! We'll be back soon.

    Food is wonderful but I wish the server would not refer to us as “guys”. It is just as easy and more concise to say “Are you ready to order?” as it is”Are you guys ready to order?” The entrees all came out before the appetizers were cleared. We were moving them around and the servers asked if we would like them taken away. Isn’t that a given?

    Our dinner at Eclipse last night was all that we have come to expect from Eclipse over the years. We were seated quickly, the food was excellent and our server was top notch. Eclipse remains one of our favorite spots.

    I had not been at Eclipse Bistro since the holidays. I selected it for lunch with a visiting friend because I knew we would be able to hear each other. The service was great, and we were able to relax and talk over an extended meal. I have to remember to keep going back.

    We were housesitting in DC and thought about making reservations for dinner in this city. An Internet search reminded us that 1. DC is expensive! and 2. We hadn’t gotten any personal recommendation for restaurants, so we’d be spending a lot of money on an unknown. Eclipse Bistro is our go-to spot in Wilmington for special occasion meals: it has never let us down! We drive home a day early so we could enjoy an excellent meal with excellent service for my birthday. And that’s exactly what we experienced. Very happy with our choice.

    Usual wonderful foods and service, but evening marred by a loud and unruly group of six celebrating a birthday at the adjacent table. Unnecessarily loud and clearly disturbing many diners, it was unpleasant and we were glad to escape, passing on dessert and coffee to depart.

    Perfectly cooked hangar steak and burger for dinner. The fries and bacon fat cooked potatoes were so hot and crispy like they were plated just after coming off the stove (it was heaven).

    Rough service. Had to ask if there were specials. Wine glasses sat empty for some time. Food always great (the special soup of carrot gazpacho was amazing!), but rough night service-wise.

    Hadn’t been in over a year so didn’t know what to expect. From the warm greeting at the door to the excellent service from our waitress Molly, we were off to a very good start. Then the food arrived and things got even better. Duck breast was exquisite, as was salmon Caesar salad. Olive oil cake for dessert topped it off. Will definitely be back often.

    Enjoyed a quiet Sunday night dining Al fresco @ eclipse. Appetizer and a salad were sufficient for our appetites- had shrimp and linguine (small size) with a carrot gazpacho. My husband had crab cake app with Cesar salad. Thought a bit over priced- with drinks (2), dessert (1) and tip over $100. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Had fun- good not great for the price.
