I have been frequenting the Del Mar for years with family and friends. My mother took me here to celebrate my 30th birthday and we were accompanied by two friends and had a wonderful time. I love how relaxing the atmosphere is, even when patrons are packed in like sardines. John, the owner, is awesome. The bartenders and waitresses are terrific. I can't recommend just one menu item because everything is delicious. I love how the waitress last night (I don't remember her name), put a candle on my dessert for my birthday. That was a very nice thing to do. I ordered the Mississippi Mud Pie and mom had the Turtle Cheesecake. It's a great place to go solo or with a group.

My husband and I spent the evening having dinner at the bar, and it was one of the best meals we have ever had! The chef created a special menu that featured recipes from around the world. Most of the dishes also used an ingredient that was considered “good luck” by the people of that country. So creative and delicious, it was the perfect way to welcome the New Year. We started with fresh, local oysters, then had duck and pate-stuffed cabbage, jumbo shrimp, and a grilled romaine Caeser salad as appetizers. For entrees we had the surf and turf (filet mignon with Maine lobster tail, mashed potatoes and asparagus) and a scallop dish with puréed cauliflower, arugula and spring peas. We were too full to have dessert but they had eight or nine yummy choices like molten chocolate cake a la mode, classic cheese cake, chocolate torte and gelato. Just wonderful! Last but not least, Matt and Nancy, the bartenders, made the evening fun and relaxing. They are a great team and make everything flow seamlessly. We really love Del Mar! One of the best restaurants around!

Went to Del Mar for New Year’s Eve Dinner. Great food and service. The Haddock, Cornish Game Hen and Mexican Mole were all fantastic. The desserts were just as good.
