Busy, noisy and lively so not the best place for a quiet conversation. The food was inventive, delicious and adequate in quantity the prices in the high end range. We tried a Margarita pizza which four of us shared as an appetizer, great choice. All the food we picked was delicious and the desserts were fine, too. Other than the... More

This place was highly recommended to us during our stay in Chatham, MA. We made reservations, and were promptly seated at our table. I love swordfish, and ordered a swordfish dinner, and it was to be accompanied by some kale as a small veggie. Nothing else came with the dinner, with the exception of some very good bread. When the... More

We went to Del Mar on recommendations. It was packed on a Friday night with nice ambiance and crowed bar. The food was so good, the service so nice that we made reservations on the spot for the next night. There were four of us and we each got something different both nights and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite! A... More

We were seated at a booth overlooking the bar area, which was busy (great for people-watching). The menu was rather short, although both creative and eclectic in choices. Both Linda and I ordered the salmon after seeing it placed in front of a patron near us. It was a creatively presented, very generous portion of salmon over a bed of... More

Made reservation at noontime today. The only opening was 5:15 pm... Definitely make your reservation early. We started with Tempura shrimp and stuffed artichoke as our appetizers. Our entrees were filet mignon, grilled rib eye and fire roasted haddock with crabmeat. We topped our meal by sharing a chocolate lava cake. Great place, delicious food. Our only complaint was the...

Del Mar was a fabulous surprise! The menu was varied and included terrific daily specials. The fig, grilled peach, shaved melon and arugula salad was delicious. Our server Danielle couldn't have been anymore accommodating. The Japanese duck special was unforgettable as was the regular duck on the menu. Nice wine list & wonderful cocktails. Definitely a come back place!

Lived up to the previous reviews. Thank you Trip Advisor! We shared the delicious little bowl of fish chowder. Grilled peach and fig salad was perfect. Lobster BLT had a generous portion of lobster and the aioli did not overpower. Ended with the molten chocolate --- all was great and worth the prices.
