“Great drinks in this hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

What a treat to find this gem of a restaurant, slightly hidden just a block of busy Rehoboth Ave. The service was impeccable and helpful in selecting items to explore. While the food was good, varied, a eclectic, the true gem of this place is its concoctions of fruit and infused martinis... Which we had to restrain ourselves from sampling the extensive list!

“Great Meal From Guest Chef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at Espuma. The night we were there, they offered a dinner prepared by a guest chef. So while I cannot comment on the regular menu (which was offered that night), I can say that that food we had was excellent, and a real bargain at $45 for a 3-course menu. There was a regrettable slip up when our dessert was apparently forgotten (for 30+ minutes), which our server did not handle particularly well. But other staff members were gracious and helpful.

“Rehoboth Beach Weekender”

The Worst Paella!!! You have decreased the ingredients to 2 shrimp, 1 piece of bite size chicken, dried small muscles the rest was hot peppers and rice @ the price of $33.00 in a small dish. Service was Excellent - Never again..No stars for you! Will not be back!!!

“Good but overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Creative dishes and great staff. Cocktails a bit too sweet for my taste (bllueberry mojito). Food was tasty, but only a couple of dishes were really remarkable (we were a large group, so we tasted quite a number of different plates). And though we expected small "small plates", even the entrees were surprisingly small.

“Expertly prepared dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Very expensive and expected due to the multiple award winning chef preparing your meal. Atmosphere coupled with amazing entrees made this a wonderful experience. The wine selection was very good. The server was well familiar with details. Price was a little much but I will return.
