    Noisier than usual or my hearing is getting worse. Full restaurant which was nice to see but that contributed To noise level. Excellent meal by and waiter helped with selections for a dinner with many food intolerances. She really enjoyed her meal.

    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.

    Excellent service which highlighted the night. Reasonably priced menu. Homemade pasta was a nice touch but sauce was a bit under seasoned. Cheese board was good value. Definitely will return soon.

    This is a great neighborhood restaurant. Somewhat hidden on Union Street. The food and service are top notch. It’s great for a business lunch or a special occasion dinner. They have a nice wine list and a broad range of items on the menu. Don’t miss it.

    Calamari app was a generous portion of tender rings. Crab cakes were delicious lump crab with no filler. Shrimp and linguine arrived super hot and was flavorful. Meg provided friendly service. Highly recommended.

    First time here! Delightful. Small menu with good choices for any palate. My husband had the PEI mussels and then pasta and I had the chaucuterie board and then the best burger! Service great. Atmosphere fun....and the place was full! Definitely need reservations. Can't wait to return.

    The great: the bread and basil spread were delicious. The sweet potato and chipotle soup was creative, warming, and a real treat. The hanger steak was perfectly prepared and tasty. The ok: the salmon was good, but nowhere near as luscious as last year, where the inside was so perfectly cooked it was like custard. And the salsa was bland. All in all, the experience was good and we’d return, it’s just that our first time last Mothers Day was 5 plus stars and this was 3-4. We’d have returned sooner but it’s an hour and a half drive from where we live.

    Great spot - friendly service with a very wait staff that is well versed in the menu and can offer wonderful suggestions for food; wine and drink - the pork is fabulous - did not love the crab cakes as I do not think they used lump crab meet - tasted more like blue claw crab meet. Desserts are memorable here - portions are more than ample. Give this place a try if you are in Wilmington DE area.

    Everything we ordered was excellent. Great attention to detail by chef and staff. Clearly one could make a case for Eclipse Bistro being the best restaurant in all of Wilmington, DE. Mussels and Calamari were outstanding as was the duck breast-cooked perfectly and a reminder of a favorite Paris restaurant Great service with precise timing of courses. Our favorite birthday celebration place!

    Eclipse Bistro is a smaller restaurant than others in the Platinum Dining group, but the food and service is just as good. We had a very enjoyable dinner on a Thursday evening at the location in Wilmington. Easy parking right next to the building helped set the tone for an easy meal. The host seated us immediately and our server ( Alliah ) appeared quickly and took care of our needs all evening. We shared the small Snack Board ( ample for 2) to start. Our orders of Pasta Bolognese and hanger steak were done to perfection and equally delicious. Great selections of wine here and we had a nice French red to enjoy with the meal. We also shared a perfectly enjoyable dish of Chocolate hazelnut ice cream to top off the meal. The restaurant not very big , so the noise level got a bit high as the place completely filled up, but the great food and good service overshadowed the tight quarters.

    Jeremy took very good care of us last night and made sure we had everything we needed. The asparagus appetizer was uninspiring and should be replaced. But the other dishes were quite good and we enjoyed the bottle of Prosecco!
