It's not a convenient location for us but we occasionally go out of our way for Delectables because the atmosphere is relaxed and the food quality is outstanding.

Five stars because it never disappoints. It is right in the middle of Fourth Avenue. The place is comfortable and has outdoor seating if you like. It also has a bar if you are so inclined. Try the fruit and cheese plate, It is wonderful. Occasionally they have live entertainment. Usually a guitar player/singer. Very friendly and relaxing.

I went there for a quick lunch and again, not disappointed, I ordered the beef patty melt with a side of potato salad. With every bite, I ate slow to enjoy and thought this was the best patty melt ever. This is a great place you can always count on having great food.

Cute, quirky, right on 4th Avenue, this place is walking distance from work. Always good soups and sandwiches, but I keep coming back for the ahi -- so good, cold with 2 dipping sauces. Yum.

We hadn't been here in quite a while and our previous outings were only for lunch. We decided to try dinner and weren't disappointed. The crab cake appetizer was very fresh and tasty with the side sauce having just enough kick to add flavor but not overwhelm the crab cakes. My husband had the T-bone and I had the wild... More

This is an amazing place. I've been a customer here for more than two decades and it just keeps getting better. A completely relaxed atmosphere, with the best bistro food you can imagine.

Delectables is the place to eat if you like high quality food at reasonable prices. Not much ambiance, but who cares when the food is so good. They use only the freshest of ingredients, prepared by experienced chefs. The "lasagna of the day" is a real treat. Give it a try.
