We had been advised that this restaurant was very good. Unfortunately it wasn't what we had expected. We thought it might be a bit up-market with fine dining, but Del Mar is just a regular mid-range eatery. A diner with tablecloths. Having said that, the food was really good, but the service was just adequate and not particularly welcoming or... More

Very happy with our dinner tonight ..it is a place that is hard to get into during the summer but easy off season but you still need a reservation which we had.. Great lamb breast meal tonight and the pumpkin cheesecake was so creamy .. Highly recommend

Of all the varieties of seared tuna dishes I have tried this is by far the best. Looking forward to next time.

My wife and I went for dinner here twice in October. Both times with friends. The food is simply amazing. Especially enjoyed the truffle steak. Very fair pricing. Also on the wine list. We will definitely be back when we get the chance to visit the Cape again. Keep up the good work!

While vacationing in Chatham, we decided on spur of the moment to try the bar for a quick dinner. Although it did take a bit to get a seat (be sure and let the bartender know you're waiting for a seat--as they have a list they keep to), the atmosphere was upbeat and entertaining. And, the food and wine selections... More

I almost can't go without ordering the tuna, but my wife had the filet tonight and we were so happy with bacon mashed potatoes and the tender cooked (although medium over our MR order) filet. Always fair portions and greta appetizer options, perfectly cooked vegetables and exciting drink options. It is super busy at the bar (often a wait for... More

We have been to Chatham many times and this was the first time we ate and Del Mar. If we had known what we had been missing, we would have been there every time! The food was delicious and the service was prompt and fun. We sat out in the covered tent area, and it was charming and romantic. Next... More

The food was excellent and the service good, a big restaurant with a great indoor/outdoor canopy, the food and service was upmarket. Not a cozy place but a busy one!
