My family enjoyed the surf & turf along with the very attentive service for a wonderful valentines dinner. Children's menu is a bit limited but they accommodated us by bringing in food from Sheerwater (next door)

The moment we stepped out of the car, we knew we needed to book a stay at this resort ....just as we knew the moment we stepped inside the restaurant that this was going to be one of the great dining experiences of the year.... and it was. The service was spot on, the meals were inspired, unique and too... More

The food, service and ombiance was just perfect. We started our first vacation together at this beautiful restaurant. I had a special request to surprise my boyfriend and they didn't disappoint. It was perfect. We loved it and will be a wonderful memory for us for a lifetime.

Took two and a half hours to get a meal for two. Not exaggerating folks, we timed it. My shellfish was undercooked. It was so bad, I ordered our dessert to go because I didn't want to waste another minute, or 30, waiting for a slice of cheesecake.

It was a one time thing. The waiter was superb and a great help. Ambience was beautiful. Unfortunately there... More

Food is very good, but found the service very rushed this visit. Not sure why - it was not crowded, but for these prices, I expect more elegant service. Not to be had...

Visiting this restaurant was the worst dining experiences we had on this trip. Starting with the fact it was restaurant week and we were aware but since all other restaurants offered their regular menu as well we didn't check. However we should have been informed. The service was with attitude and got worse as the meal progressed. It became hostile... More

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
