Was disappointed that the menu is very limited now—lots fewer choices than in the past. Food that we had was good.

I had the pleasuring of dining here on Valentine's Day! I will stay it was a bit stuffy and spacing was a slight concern but everything else was amazing! The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The calamari was dressed with a delicious sauce. The entrees were creative and flavorful! Went spent evening!

Our first time back to Eclipse Bistro in at least a year. This once was one of our favorite restaurants but then service and food quality slowly declined and we stopped going. I'm happy that we decided to give Eclipse another try. Our request for a corner table was honored which made us happy. We were warmly grated by Dave the Maitre d' and served very well by Nicholas. Our food was very tasty and we were not rushed. Wine selection was fine and reasonably priced. My only criticism was that the pappardelle bolognese could have used a little more meat sauce. The pasta was perfectly cooked though as was my NY Strip. The Eclipse Calamari was as delicious as we remembered it from years ago. We will be returning regularly again.

First time there, reserved a table for my boyfriend's birthday. The staff was so wonderful and even got him a card. Everyone was very friendly. The restaurant is cozy and quiet. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend and plan to go back.

My brothers and I try to dine here routinely. The food quality and presentations are exceptional. Service is second to none. In these difficult times the Eclipse Bistro has been able to assemble a very good lunch menu. At a recent lunch visit we were able to experience some dinner menu offerings. They were incredible. I recommend having dinner here and don't hesitate to ask your server at lunch what may be available from the dinner menu.

New Year’s Eve lunch. EB was amazing and my bologna sandwich was the best s/w in 2020. Sometimes I forget what a great restaurant this is, and you will see us more often in 2021.

Once again Eclipse doesn’t disappoint. They continue to serve the best chicken dish in town, but we really enjoyed the brussel sprouts & cauliflower appetizer as well as the generous portion of cheesesteak spring rolls as an appetizer. Looking forward to returning to try more.

Everything was great! Food came out quickly and we did not have to wait long for our entree's. The only reason I did not rate everything 5 Star was because 2 out of the 5 entree items were not available. We really could only choose from 3-4 items on the menu which was disappointing. Service and food quality could not have been better.

For the first time ever and I assume bc of Covid etc our food was not the eclipse we usually expect. My Brussels and salmon were tiny plate and no Brussels and other plates food was less than normal coupled with the shared side was for one person and not good. We were shocked. But love eclipse so chalk it up to bad night.
