Great homemade fare

Great and fast lunch. Very complex flavors in simple presentations. Pressed Cuban and cup of baked potato soup provided just enough.

Treated ourselves to Dellas After Dark - so glad we did. Loved the atmosphere from the moment we walked in. Small, dimly lit (in a good way) and intimate - just the right ingreedients for a romatic evening out. Started our meal with fabulous escargot. For dinner, husband had steak which he said was the best he had ever had... More

By no means am I a foodie, but my wife and I had a fantastic dining experience at Della's After Dark last night. The food, the service, the music, the atmosphere....all of it was great. Again, not a foodie but these are the courses we had: the appetizer was flat bread with melted blue cheese with slices of pears and... More

I went to Della's Delectables and ordered their Thursday special - a Turkey Burger. I love turkey burgers and have had great ones at many restaurants so I thought this would be a great choice. OMG it had the worst taste, finely ground meat that was dark brown. One bite and I knew something was off. I immediately returned it... More

This was the first time we have been back since they reopened, and it's not the same. We were looking forward to celebrating our anniversary with an evening of good music and great food, and were deeply disappointed. My salad consisted of a whole head of lettuce with a few pieces of pancetta and 1/2 dozen grape tomatoes. I had... More

Recently tried Della's After Dark and was unfortunately disappointed. The service was painfully slow. 40 min to get the appetizer (and over 1hr to get the entrees), which was the margarita flat bread and brought after our salad. The flat bread was soggy and cheese flavorless. The caprese salad was very good however and the highlight of our meal. I... More

Service is prompt and courteous. Food is high quality and they have a nice variety of homemade salads, soups and sandwiches. The home made desserts are great also. I ate there a couple of times while my husband was an inpatient at Brandon Regional Hospital. It was a nice short walk from the hospital and I felt that they had... More

I've never experienced Della's After Dark, but I can say that lunch was very enjoyable. The sandwiches are very well made, and the bread is very fresh. The tomato bisque soup was one of the best I've had in a while. The Hummingbird cake with the cream cheese frosting is the best I've ever had. Even better than Wright's Deli.... More

We had a fine dinner at Della's After Dark, Oakfield Dr, Brandon, Florida. The gourmet food was fresh, delicious and unique in flavors. The jazz trio was wonderful and accommodated our request to incorporate "Happy 80th Birthday" in their song. Chef Debbie and her staff were fantastic. For an evening out with quality food, jazzy atmosphere this is the place.
