Great food and good atmosphere

Went here for a large family dinner and had an excellent time. Everything we ordered was excellent. And the place had just the right mix of nice but not too fancy atmosphere. Prices are not cheap but very much in line with the quality of the food.

Second visit as summer people from New York. The food is excellent. The ambiance is fun and cozy yet modern and chic. I really like the sitting area for people to have drinks and wait for their table. It is spacious enough and away from the tables so that those eating are not disturbed by perhaps walking around and bar... More

Plan ahead for a reservation as it's a very popular and chic spot - there's even a waiting list to be seated at the bar! Halibut special was divine and the filet mignon was quite tasty.

thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in the section of the restaurant that is called "the patio". Service and food were very good and though an expensive restaurant it was perfect for celebrating a special occasion. A reservation is definitely recommended.

All I can say is delicious! We sat at the bar and the staff was great. Try the polenta! Very cool restaurant. We will return.

Must make a reservation or you won’t get in. Food was fresh and delicious. Drinks great too. Lobster Crab Cake is a must order. Sit in patio area, not as loud as inside. Plus music is out in the patio (not too loud). Best food in Chatham, dress up or down it’s up to you.

We were recommended to this restaurant but were quite disappointed. The food was average, but quite expensive - we felt rushed and the waitress put the bill down when we were still eating! We wouldn't go back

We have been to Chatham many times but had never tried Del Mar. Before our vacation this year we made a reservation ahead of time to make sure we could get it in. When reserving a table ask for the enclosed patio -very nice atmosphere with little white hanging lights. They have a nice drink menu and plenty of options... More

took a party of six guests to celebrate our daughter's birthday......drinks & wine reasonably priced......salads and apps a bargain....chowder, house and caesar salads a hit, oyster special was great. our guests loved the chicken entree, linguini/clams, swordfish special, and those who ordered pizzas took some slices home. our server claire was fabulous with recommendations and service......definitely a return visit. we...

We have driven past this place many times before and it was always busy, which is usually a good sign, so when we came down this summer we made reservations to ensure we would make it and it didn't disappoint. It was super busy, even for a Sunday night and the food was great. My kids were both happy with... More
