    Eclipse is consistently excellent. They have great servers, excellent bartenders, delicious food, and great ambiance. With all the great entree options, it was very hard to order a burger, which seems so pedestrian, but it is THE BEST BURGER IN WILMINGTON! (Sorry, Kid Shelleen’s)

    From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed! The food and drinks were outstanding! Our server, Raegan, was top notch! It was a very busy evening and she handled our table and every other table she was handling as if we were her only customers! She was attentive, kind and very knowledgeable of the menu items. Can’t wait for our next visit to Eclipse.

    Took 3 business associates from out of town there for lunch. I made suggestions as I eat there often, and I'm pretty sure they went back there for dinner on their own later. We had Blackened chicken Caesar salad, Eclipse burger x 2, and the Pork belly sandwich. Everyone loved it and said when they come back again that is where they definitely want to go. Eclipse ALWAYS pleases...

    love this restaurant but was sad there were no specials offered this night as their menu hasn't changed too much in a long time and as we come fairly frequently was hoping for something different.

    My husband and I had the fish chowder for an appetizer, it was flavorful, not salty, all the ingredients cooked perfectly and the broth had a creaminess but was not heavy. The duck entree was delicious. My husband had the scallops with goat cheese risotto which he thoroughly enjoyed. It came with 4 scallops, though he would have preferred 5. Service was excellent and timing between courses was perfect even though it was a busy Sat night (Valentine's weekend).

    We celebrated our 38th year of our first date and Eclipse did not disappoint. Nicole was the best server and Andrew had his A game in making our drinks. It’s our favorite place to eat.

    The food was excellent but our waitress Raegan was awful. She was rushed and rude. She took plates off the table before we were done would start grabbing before even asking if you were done. She took my drink before I was done. She was terrible and needs to be retrained on customer service. I mentioned this to the chef and expected a follow up. My friend asked her to slow down torching the crème brûlée for a picture and she said “I’ve got lots of things to do “ and ignored her. She doesn’t represent the brand and she made our visit; which was to celebrate my friend ,not great.

    Waiter was great and could not have done any thing more under the circumstances. Unfortunately he was the only server so service was a little slow since restaurant was full of people including a relatively large party of about 8 people. But since we were not on a tight schedule it was ok. I think the host could have helped out a little more.
