We booked a table at the Del on Christmas Day. When we arrived the hotel and the whole surrounding area was a zoo. It seems everyone in the area heads to the hotel to wander around - the place was absolutely rammed. We seriously thought about turning back and leaving but as there were unlikely to be any alternatives we... More

This restaurant is one of the best in every way that I have had the pleasure to dine in. Impeccable service. Timely delivery of each course. Unusual choices of appetizers and entrees. Delightful flavors. I had the fish of the day -- mahi mahi. My daughter had 2 appetizers: a roasted pear salad and a venison dish served like ahi... More

went to the restaurant with several of my colleagues at a conference. After eating bagels and sandwiches for 3 days at the event we were up for some fine dining. We selected the 4 course wine pairing. The chef selected wines for us to try based on our choices. It was one of the most amazing meals i have had.... More

Fabulous dinner, a good place for foodies, but might be a little intimidating for the less sophisticated palette. The wine pairings were excellent. A bit pricey, but it made Christmas very special!

We had lobster risotto here at a company holiday party a few years ago and it was the best we ever had. On our return visit the lobster risotto was no longer on the menu. However, the chef granted our special request and it was as good as we remembered. My only regret is that we ordered it as a... More

I had a business dinner and the food was outstanding. The service was very good and they made sure everything was taken care of. They could increase the beer selection a bit.

Had not visited here in a few years but the place is still all first class. When your waiter addresses you by your name you know you're not at Taco Bell. The 4 course meals my wife and I ordered were fantastic , the bass, mussels , barrata and filets were all very good. We brought along one of our... More

We sat outside at a quiet and comfortable table. I ordered the squash and lobster soup. The best I ever tasted. I then enjoyed the lamb chops well prepared and complemented with variations of flavors to your taste. My wife enjoyed the surf and turf. Conversation was easy because it was so quiet. We experienced prompt service and would return... More
