A bustling restaurant with good food and friendly waitstaff. We enjoyed our little night out to celebrate our anniversary. I had excellently prepared pan seared salmon with fresh asparagus; my husband enjoyed the shrimp and linguine. Topped off with raspberry sorbet. Just a lovely way to spend an evening.

Daniel was an excellent server. We tried many dishes the vast majority of them were absolutely delicious. Our favorites were the butternut risotto, the soup of the day (Friday 15 Oct) and the flash fried barramundi with panzanella.

Third time was NOT the charm for us. Our waiter Demetrius(?)was probably one of the most inattentive in our long history of waiters. They must be short staffed. The rather frightening clientele after 9pm I’ll save for another day. Food was good, but super slow inattentive service overshadowed everything.

I’m vegetarian but don’t mind a bit crispy bacon or the like. I had Brussels spouts and cauliflower and asparagus fries. My husband had mahi-mahi with bok Choi and creamed spinach. My husband thought the sauce was a bit too sweet but otherwise good. My friend had the same mahi-mahi. He liked it. Pleasant place to eat.

Very busy Friday evening at 7 PM. Almost a full house. Service was very good, a whole server crew hustle big-time and pull together as a team to make it happen. A very pleasant experience. The noise level in the restaurant with almost all the tables for who is very high

Great ambiance. David was so pleasant when he sat us and Aleah is potentially the BEST server I have experienced as a diner. The food was dynamite. I subbed fries for the creamed spinach with the Rib Eye and that was the right move in my mind. The bread served was delicate and flavorful. We also very much enjoyed the Bolognese. Oh yeah and the Shrimp Tacos as a starter, fabulous! All accompanied by a bottle of Michael David Petite Petit which paired wonderfully with the bolognese but surprisingly not so great with the steak. All in all and incredibly enjoyable evening right down to the conversation with an older couple seated next to us who were very popular as they had many other guests stop by their table to chat. We highly recommend this little bistro.

My Wife and I dined here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary Lunch. It was a wonderful way to start our day! We had Aleah as our server. She was very attentive and efficient. She was deeply knowledgeable of the menu. She recommended delicious appetizers. We both had the lunch special, and our meal was incredible! Everything was perfect. My Wife and I will be truly dinning at the Eclipse again.

Have a monthly dinner at Eclipse with relatives. Would never consider going elsewhere. The food is always imaginative and delicious. The wait staff is knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. And the cost is very reasonable given the quality. The scallops with corn fritters and a mildly spicy chorizo accompaniment was to die for and the wedge salad is the best I’ve ever had.
