This place is absolutely awesome. Great atmosphere and great dishes. It is somewhat pricey but worth every dollar. The Japanese pumpkin ravioli appetizer was to die for and the fish dishes, in particular the cod, was top notch. The cocktails were great as well!

Love the Pasta Bolognese for comfort food, and the melon/cucumber gazpacho is delicious! The waitstaff is always very attentive, courteous and professional.

The food was excellent and so was the service! We went during Cape Cod Restaurant Week and had an excellent meal for an affordable price. We felt like the quality of food and the attention to detail was wonderful. Highly recommend it!

Oh my. Loved everything about this place. The vibe, wait staff and of course the inventive menu. Amazing pizza and duck entrée. Too full for dessert but they sounded fabulous. We also enjoyed Impudent Oyster but this was our favorite spot in Chatham.

This place is exactly the kind of place I wanted to find for dinner but wasn't sure it existed on cape cod. The menu is unbelievably creative, inspiring, and delicious. I got a pickled plum and beet salad which was easy to add some yummy steak to. I would come here again in a heartbeat.

The Del Mar caters to those who want elegant, stylish food choices with ingredients that amaze the palette. For example, try the crispy pork belly for a heavy appetizer that pleases the most discriminating foodie.

Cute restaurant with half moon seats on left side. I had the eggplant special. It was very good except pasta was a bit soggy. I should have let them know, but did not. Salads and chocolate desserts was also good. Came highly recommended, we liked it, but did not love it.

That is really nice place to have a dinner. It's even better than hoe it looks on the pictures here. The food is amazing. They have fix price menu with good portions! Clam chowder is wonderful. It's better to make a reservation because it's quite full even on weekdays. But they have a bar, so it's possible to enjoy there... More
