It must have been 2 or 3 years since we've eaten at Espuma, and we were looking forward to last night's dinner there with friends, but a lot has changed and not for the better. First, we had trouble making a reservation. No one answered the phone, but the message asked us to state the number in our party and... More

The food was just okay not great and the only beef item Rib Steak was out. Very expensive especially the wine which was way over priced. An example; Amber Knolls Cab priced at $60 most other restaurants range from $38 to $42, their cost has to be in the $14/$15 range, if that. The wine we ordered was out of... More

You can't be out of my first 8 wine choices. Build a new list. Don't serve my appetizer before the wine situation is resolved. Restauarant needs more heat iin winter. Finally, hostess should not be drinking at the bar, and should have seomhting to say when we leave. Talented chef, but overall experoence needs work.

We decided to try Espuma after reading positive reviews. We were not disappointed. We went with the kids but our kids will eat off of the adult menu so I can't tell you that they have "kid food". From the start amuse bouche to the bread with olive, garlic and beans things were great. We had the fig salad. The... More

We've been to Espuma about a half dozen times over the last 4 years. It never disappoints. The ambiance is upscale and intimate, the service excellent, and the food is the finest in Rehoboth Beach - bar none. It's fine dining that rivals high-end restaurants in DC. You'll have an excellent, "can't miss" dining experience here. Enjoy!

We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Espuma. The restaurant is small, attractive and comfortable. We started with a very good, dry martini and a "Blood Orange" cocktail, which was beautiful and packed a punch. The server explained the menu well, and there were interesting choices. Each course, including a complimentary mini-appetizer, was beautifully presented and... More

We go to Rehoboth every summer for family time and have tried many of the restaurants there but had never tried Espuma. The amazing thing is that this restaurant is only about 100 feet from the house in which we usually stay as guests and we had passed it by many time on the way to other restaurants.

From our "lost" phone call when the hostess came out to the street to wave us into the restaurant, to the waiter's making sure we had our doggie bag when we left, we had a truly enjoyable experience. We started with cocktails, and were really impressed with their flavor and unusual combinations (limoncello & basil, and peach & jalapeno). The... More

Well presented environment, with not over the top servers pretending something that they are not. Great quality food that required a true thought process and effort. Creativity in designing dishes, comparable to most sophisticated establishments. The fact that it is located at the beach, enables one to bring well behaved teenagers, but I would not bring young children. Thank you... More

My wife picked this restaurant based on her unique taste- She's a vegan and I love meat. Both of us were totally pleased with our experience. To begin the restaurant is located at 28 Wilmington Ave- well not really! It's actually around the corner - visible from Wilmington Ave and the hostess was kind enough or familar enough with this...
