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.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Wilmington area. Whenever we are in town for a visit it's always on our list to stop in for dinner. This trip was no different. We both had the porkchop Normandie and it was delicious. The tomato tarte tatin was pretty tasty too. We'll be back again the next time we're in Wilmington.

The menu on the web site is different from the restaurant menu. Web has a flat iron steak for $17. Restaurant only had a NY strip steak for $26. Which I ordered. The meat was very tough and chewy. Not a good value. My husband had the lamb shank and said it was OK. The mussel appetizer was good. I would not go back again.

This was our first visit to Caprice Bistro although we're local. What a wonderful place for a cozy, romantic, delicious experience! The service and food was absolutely the best! We had pate, the pork and a flounder/shrimp special and " floating island" for dessert. Very different and so yummy! We will return and cannot wait to try other dishes.

There is little question that Caprice Bistro continues to rank as the top restaurant in Wilmington NC because the absolute quality of the food, the presentation of the dishes, and the extremely dedicated service. I have been a frequent dinner at this place;I have never been dissapointed .

Every time we eat at Caprice is special. We love the food, and the staff is wonderful. I'm a little disappointed that they took their Flat Iron steak off the menu. It was the best steak in Wilmington, but the salmon was to die for.

Great place to celebrate. Cozy and fun. Bar menu is a real deal. Champagne, escargot and mussels-all prepared deliciously . Highly recommend. Will definitely go back many times. Really, what's the question. Telling all my friends about it though I think most of them already are aware of this jewel.

This is a wonderful restaurant in the historic waterfront area of Wilmington. I've enjoyed many meals here through the years, and the food is consistently good. The service is excellent, and the food is reasonably priced for a high-quality restaurant. Highly recommended!

Always consistent and worth the trip to Wilmington for authentic French cuisine. Wonderful meal that was beautifully presented. Our server, Jack, was fantastic and we enjoyed talking with him. Would recommend this restaurant again and again.

Superb! This is always a culinary highlight of our trip to Wilmington. Our favorite appetizer is the Mussels Marseillaise, served in a white wine sauce, tomatoes, garlic and herbs. Our favorite entree is the Waterzooi, a light and slightly creamy broth with a beautiful assortment of seafood. Both of these are wonderful for dipping the crusty French bread. Friends who have had dinner with us rave about the food. Caprice Bistro always exceeds expectations!

Consistently one of the best restaurants in the area. Beef bourguignon, Lamb Shank, trout, mussels, salmon all perfect. Profiteroles and macaroons for dessert and not a crumb left. Chef Thierry will not disappoint. I have family who have dined at both of his previous venues in NYC and Charlotte and insist on a trip here every time they visit. Enjoy!

This is one of the best restaurants in Wilmington. The food is always delicious and well presented and the service is professional and not over-bearing. The sofa bar is inviting and good for drinks or a meal. Located in downtown Wilmington, it's great to walk about before or after dinner. We love this restaurant!

My friend and I went to Wilmington for a few days and came upon Caprice Bistro the first night of our stay. We so enjoyed the dinner, wine and service that we went back the second for an equally delicious meal...Lovely cafe with great service and the food was superb!

My husband and I ordered the escargot for appetizer. We've had it here before and love their version. It's like the richest cream soup with tons of escargot.YUM. We also had mussels. We were recently in Brussels and had their famous mussels. The mussels here are better!

Everything was first-rate...the food, the ambiance (a real French feel), and service. Excellent wine list. Server was very knowledgeable about the wines and gave a great recommendation.
A great spot for a romantic date or the celebration of a special occasion.

One of our favorite places to eat in Wilmington. Food is excellent and the service wonderful. My husband had the pork which was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. I had the stuffed chicken which was delicious. We eat there five or six times a year and have never been disappointed.

As usual, everything was great! The escargot are in a very rich sauce that compliments the meat. The trout was delicious. The pork chop perfectly done. Still one of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington....13 years and counting.

This is one our favorite restaurants in Wilmington. An intimate bistro near the Cape Fear River featuring Belgian/French cuisine, the service is always prompt and friendly. The food never disappoints, but I rarely stray from my favorite, waterzooi, a traditional Flemish fish stew similar to its French cousin, bouillabaisse. My wife usually goes for the steak frites. The desserts are great too.

Caprice Bistro is a gem. The food is always wonderful. I had the fixed price menu for $25 which included a salad, pork tenderloin with root veggies, and floating island for dessert. The Entree always comes out steaming hot. I eat here every chance I get. Don't miss it!

Caprice Bistro is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington, NC. Although there are a number of excellent restaurants in this quaint city, none can compare with the constantly superb and delicious food prepared by this outstanding chef and impeccably served by waiters that are attentive and dedicated to the restaurant.

Always have had a great meal at Caprice.
Food was fantastic and a good value for the quality of food served.
Our server was wonderful and attentive without being intrusive.
Never felt rushed even though they were busy which made for a very relaxing and enjoyable evening.
We always request to eat upstairs. Upstairs is more intimate.
