About Caprice Bistro
Thierry and Patricia Moity were previous owners of Patou Bistro in Charlotte, NC and Cafe de Bruxelles in New York City.
Delight in Chef Thierry Moity's traditional French cuisine. Chef Moity, who has been cooking since age 13 in some of the finest French restaurants in Europe and New York City. The French cuisine is influenced by a combination of traditions-Patricia comes from the northern part of France near the Belgium border, while Thierry's origins are deeply rooted in the central provinces of the country.
According to Chef Moity, the food is served fast paced and in generous portions." I want everyone to feel welcome in my restaurant". We are working against the stereotype that French food must be intimidating and expensive.

Caprice Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Being a Monday night it was not crowded ...
Being a Monday night it was not crowded and we felt very comfortable there. The food was flavorful and excellently prepared. One of us had venison and it fell off the bone it was so tender. The mashed sweet potatoes were served on the side and delicious. One of us had the seafood stew, Waterzooi, which was loaded with shrimp, mussels, salmon, white fish and scallops. The cream sauce was delicious and could be eaten alone. We both had the butternut squash soup to begin which was also delicious. The portions were a little larger then most French restaurants we have dined at. The problem with that is no room to try any of the desserts, and it appeared if you were a chocolate lover then there were plenty of that on the menu. The female wait staff member was very attentive. She chose a delicious wine that paired well with both our dishes. They had a decent sized wine list and something for any price range. The tables are close which may make the place more conversationally challenged had there been more people dining but not this particular night. There is a parking garage close by and after 6"30 parking is free in the downtown Wilmington area. We would dfinitley come back to try other menu options.

Very good food. Awesome service. Friendly atmosphere. Great date spot or special occasion. The kind of place you want to dress up for but there are a few that think t-shirts and shorts are okay anywhere that will show up.

Friendly atmosphere, fantastic service, delicious food and drinks, cozy but comfortable surroundings. We visited for our wedding anniversary and sampled the appetizers, soup and salad, wine, entrees and desserts. Everything was excellent and I will definitely be back again.

Food was amazing, service was top notch! They offer an affiradable 3 course meal with perfect sized portions.
The owner called the morning of our reservation to tell us the restaurant would be open despite the major hurricane the city had experienced the night before. She hoped we would still join them for dinner. After we got our drinks, the owner personally stopped by our table to meet me & wish me a happy birthday. It was a wonderful date night for us!

Went to Caprice for our anniversary dinner. We have been to Caprice several times since moving to Wilmington a couple years ago. We love sitting in a quiet corner upstairs. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. We would recommend Caprice for any occasion.

Excellent all around French dining experience.
Hats off to Katie our server for the night. A well experienced and very personable attendee to our night out.
Katie nicely described the nights specials and gave us plenty of time to think through the varied listed of specialty cocktails.
Dinner was excellent, exactly as described and cooked to order.
The drinks were great, we had a few, the manhattans were the smoothest I've ever had. Same comment from the next table over.
We will come back again and again.

We loved this unique French restaurant. Sit downstairs and enjoy how the French dine. We enjoyed the wine, mushroom soup, and the tuna. (Suggest rare). This is a sweet, romantic place to dine. Service was excellent. Wine pour was generous. I might go back tonight for dessert. I just wish they had not moved away from Charlotte.

Food is second to none and the price is reasonable compared to some of the upscale beach restaurants. Second time dining there and we would definitely go back. There nothing that we didn't like about our experience dining at this establishment.

Our table was upstairs, away from the busier part of the restaurant; our server was prompt and had a very good knowledge of the menu, answering our questions without suggesting our orders. The owner came by the table to check on our satisfaction. It was our wedding anniversary and they treated us to champagne. mWe will definitely return.

Quaint little place right in the heart of all the tourist stuff, but a gem! The staff were so friendly, the atmosphere very small but cute; the food very nicely prepared; great wine list with some acceptable priced wines (and Sunday night specials on bottles!). We will definitely be back!

So happy we found this restaurant on Open Table. As soon as we saw the menu we knew we wanted to go. It lived up to expectations! The food was delicious and the service, very attentive. Busy, bustling restaurant. Will remember it for a long time, turned an ordinary Saturday night into a special one.

The whole dining experience at Caprice was easy and the standard of food was excellent. Service was also very good, the only fly in the ointment being that they take the wine away rather than leave it at the table. This only really works when there is a dedicated wine waiter. However, they did leave it at the table when asked to do so. Otherwise, nice ambience and friendly efficient service. Highly recommended.

Excellent experience all around. Caprice Bistro had a window table for 2 waiting for us, nice touch, (opentable reservation inspired?). From the bottle of Beaujolais, uniquely prepared escargot, crusty French bread, lamb shank, and duck confit, all was delicious. Service attentive and unpretentious. Great choice for our first visit and meal in historic Wilmington.
