Convient, good food near Theater
I like this restaurant very much and would bring my friends here in a heartbeat. The atmosphere is great, especially for a group out for Ladies Night. It's also great atmosphere for a romantic,Hip dinner for two; especially, before a show at Pantages. All that said, my very first time to Delphine's was fantastic: Superb Food, Excellent Service and Great Atmosphere; however, it has steadily gone a
Little bit less than fantastic with each return visit. To be fair, for me mostly, it's been the Challenge of an excellent dish to return to time and time again.

Delphine Never Disappoints
This is the place to go before and after seeing a show at The Pantages. The service is focused on making sure that you have an enjoyable experience including relieving you of the stress of making curtain call. The menu is always terrific and the bar offerings are diverse and fairly priced. The staff at Delphine is always friendly, efficient, accommodating....FANTASTIC!

Expected more for the type of hotel and service at the W. Service was not adequate.

Can't say enough good things!
We had dinner before attending Sister Act at the Pantages. Enjoyed a pre-dinner drink at the outdoor lounge, The bar manager, Steve, was particularly friendly and helpful. The drink of the day was a Jack Daniels Fusion on the rocks. Wonderful! Wonderful menu! I started with the beet salad -- great! I am always a sucker for scallops and Brett, our waiter, recommended theirs. He's been told by other diners they are the best they've ever eaten. I agree! HUGE diver scallops and cooked to perfection! My husband had the Kobe steak with giant prawns. Delicious! There was no room for dessert, but they all sounded wonderfully decadent. We don't get into Hollywood often, and this was a wonderful experience for us. We will definitely be returning!

As always, our server Beth was friendly, knowledgeable, and made us feel special throughout this amazing dining experience!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful as always
Always great & perfect for a meal before or after a show at the Pantages

We eat here often when going to the Pantages and have never been disappointed. It's very convenient!

Great All the Way Around
The meal at Delphine was very good - imaginative and fresh. The flat bread appetizer was delicious; it was covered with yummy melted brie, caramelized onion, grilled peached and micro arugula. We complained about the ac blowing on us- we happened to be in a tough spot right under the ac vents - and the manager handled it very well. He offered us a round of drinks, which warmed us right up! We took our teens there before the show at the Pantages and it was perfect.

Fabulous spot ore theater
Season tickets to Pantages Theater for us and our adult children. Only spot we frequent before the shows. Can always depend on a good meal. Tuna poke appetizer is fantastic... My favorite lunch!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Asparagus soup to die for.
Less noisy would have been good.
Overall-I'd go back.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect For Pre-Show
I usually avoid restaurants attached to hotels like anything Kardashian-related. But Delphine in Hollywood (inside the W) is the exception. Right across the street from the Pantages, down the block from the Palladium, and steps from the biggest parking lot around. Usually a traditional salad/entree/dessert guy, but here I graze on apps. This visit: shrimp cocktail, kale salad, and peaches w/carmellized onion flatbread. My friend had oysters, the kale salad, scallops and basically licked her plate. The service is excellent too (thanks Brittany!). Warning: it fills up on Pantages nights. It was so empty when we arrived at 5:30 that I was embarrassed I'd made a reservation, but by 7:15 when we left the place was packed. Plan ahead!

Fabulous choice pre-theatre
Fabulous choice pre-theatre dining or for any special occasion.. Ask for Frank as yr waiter, SO knowledgeable, helpful and "cool". Make sure to get a "Bar Code" parking validation for $8.00 advertised parking. If you don't have it the charge is $23.00 !!! Managers- Perry, Alan and Josh were the Best. Can't wait to go back. Bon Appetite All!!!

Dinner before theater
On theater nights, come early -- they get swamped before curtain. Other than that, a superb dining experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food. Good Service.
The service was really wonderful. The decor looks very old-Hollywood and was in a perfect location to the Pantages Theatre. My friend and I had the Delphine Cheeseburger, which was pretty good. My father had the scallops and really enjoyed them. I also had the Carrot Ginger soup and was very tasty. It was my first time at The Delphine and I was very glad I went.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at Delphine during our stay at The W Hotel in Hollywood. Staff is exceptional: friendly, helpful, attentive. They made us feel like we had been coming there for years and were part of the family. Food was also excellent and well presented. Can definitely recommend the short ribs and the halibut. And be sure to try The Hummingbird, a delicious and unusual cocktail. Will definitely return on our next visit to Hollywood.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here with my family for dinner on vacation. The hotel and the restaurant are beautiful. Our waiter was really great and everyone loved their food. We did the restaurant week dinner menu and were pleasantly surprised by the portion size. If you want a nice delicious dinner that doesn't break the bank, check this place out!

To go too far from the W hotel
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been to Delphine several times but thought the food was better than my past visits. We had the salmon and swordfish and both were excellent. Appetizer if burrata flatbread was good too. Service was excellent. The manager was very welcoming and even comp'd us a nice dessert. Thank you for a nice evening!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant, host & server!
We went before a show at Pantages (conveniently located across the street)
Our server/waiter guy (Jay) was fun and friendly, the manager (Josh) was charming, helpful and funny. The menu was simple but had enough variety enough for any palate. The food was very tasty. Serving sizes were just right - not nouvelle cuisine, nor Claim Jumper.
We'll go again, especially before a show!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pre Show Fun
If you are going to the Pantages for a show, this is a nice option since it is right across the street and you can eat quick or linger depending on your needs. You unfortunately have to plan ahead and make a reservation. Just showing up is usually risky.

One of the members of our party had special dietary needs and our server was patient and checked several times with the manager about meeting those needs which made the dining experience pleasant for us.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect place to dine before a play. We have dined here a lot and have always had great food and top notch service.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect before or after Theater
This is my go to dining for whenever I'm attending a performance at the Pantages!! Service is great, food is excellent and hotel lobby is perfect for after theatre drinks and people watching!!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
French Bistro on Hollywood Blvd
The American-French cuisine is excellent. They are open late. The service is still top notch in a beautiful setting.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delphine's never disappoints. Great bread (you have to request it), yummy breakfast and lunch selections. . . But we still miss their delicious French onion soup that we had enjoyed so many times just a few years ago. Perfectly situated across the street from the Pantages so we're never late for our Sunday matinees. If they had valet parking, it would be perfect (if they also re-introduced that scrumptious French onion.). Great wait staff.

I dined here Monday for their
I dined here Monday for their $42 "Lobster Feast" dinner. Appetizers, a 1st course, a 2nd course, the main lobster & some desserts. My favorite of the night was the lobster bisque: DELICIOUS! The 2nd course had steamed mussels and some clams in a chorizo sauce, which was yummy! The main lobster (one in thai chili, the other in a garlic sauce) & 3 sides (baby kale, a corn salsa & some potatoes) were very filling. Dessert was wonderful. My favorite was a salted caramel that tasted like one of those See's Candy suckers. I love the prix fixe menu & I hope they do more of these. Our server Bethany was great & really kept an eye on us & made sure we were happy and content. I hope the management knows how great she is. She made our evening.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for preheater
Great place for preheater (and post) dining. Very convenient across street from Pantages. Music a little loud, but a younger hipper crowd would probably love it. We had the Loup de Mer and Halibut, very nice. Good wine list.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasure Before Pantages
Our pre-theater dinner here was a complete delight. We started with ahi tuna poke, golden beets with endive and blue cheese, and delicious organic tomatoes and burrata cheese. Each was perfect. The wine list is very good and fairly priced. We had a fantastic D 66 grenache with our filet mignon, slow braised short ribs and a perfectly cooked salmon. Again, so delicious and beautifully presented. We finished with their classic carrot cake and an inventive raspberry, pineapple upside-down cake with macadamia nuts. Can you hear the Hawaiian music being cued up? The staff was knowledgeable and polite, and paid just the right amount of attention throughout.
10/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Dinner was great
Was invited back after a bad experience at brunch. Dinner was outstanding. Bone-in filet was gret, halibut perfect. Great service and a great meal.

Great restaurant in the W Hotel
We enjoyed a great pre-theatre dinner at Delphine in the W Hotel Hollywood. The food and service were outstanding. We ordered the ahi poke tuna and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. For entrees, we had the fresh diver scallops and Pacific halibut. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and delicious. For dessert, we had the raspberry upside-down cake and Delphine's version of 'smores. Both were scrumptious. Our server Zachary was attentive and professional. Overall, a great dining experience. And you can't beat the convenience if you're going to the Pantages afterwards since the restaurant/hotel is directly across the street!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for Raw Bar during the week for their special during October. The shrimp were amazing! We also had a great waiter and he gave us great suggestions on drinks from the bar. I had the BOA and it was so tasty.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
We always dine at Delphine for a pre-theatre meal because it is convenient to the Pantages and the food and service are consistently good. We started with the Caesar Salad and Flatbread. Both were very good. For entrees, we had the Diver Scallops and Filet Mignon. Again, both were delicious. For dessert, we enjoyed the Carrot Cake and Raspberry-Pineapple Upside-down cake. Our server Zach was friendly and efficient. One point to note: the Delphine automatically includes a 15% gratuity to the bill, so keep that in mind...
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always we experienced excellence in every way... Most importantly we love the way the Delphine's team always makes us feel special and appreciated!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was surprised and pleased to see how many seafood options were on this menu. I feel like LA seems to be lacking in seafood restaurants. We shared the tuna tartar for an appetizer - fresh tuna and sooo delicious. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly and my friend had the halibut. I don't know how they cooked the tomatoes under it, but they were amazing (as was the fish). We were on our way to the Pantages, and it was the perfect pre-theatre meal. All the food was great and I left satisfied, not stuffed. There was also a new manager of a few moths who can to our table twice to check on how everything was. So friendly and appreciated his attention.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good place to go before attending
Good place to go before attending a show at the Pantages right across the street. They'll get you out in time.

The food and service were fantastic!! The atmosphere was very relaxing and we felt like the only ones there! I will defnitley recommend Delphine to others and will be looking for more restaurants like it!
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
FABULOUS decor, food and service
This gem of a bistro is soooo lovely. Incredible steak and halibut. What a cocktail list. Adam, our server was incredibly knowledgeable and charming, giving us terrific recommendations. The atmosphere was just buzzing with great energy pre-theatre. I loved the design in the dining room - great art on walls, nice tiled floors and great color scheme. I'll definately be back!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time in Cali
This was my first time I California and I wanted to have a "fancy night." This place was perfect. Fancy but not uptight. Food was amazing and service was great. Would definitely return and recommend to friends.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice night spot
Pre-theatre dinner. Good meal was had by all. The drink selection is varied and very good. Dinner was served quickly and very tasty.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Automatic 15% gratuity
Delphines was again a great dining experience, food was great as was the service. It may be the policy of the restaurant to automatically add a 15% tip but I find this very objectionable. I typically will leave greater than 15% but the tip is based on the quality of the service.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as always!
I always enjoy a meal before a show at the Pantages. The menu is small, but varied enough to offer something for everyone. Give it a try!

We had a great meal and our server was very accommodating as we had to get to the Pantages. Great night glad we stopped at Delphine's beforehand for dinner

Great raw bar happy hour on
Great raw bar happy hour on Mondays, which I would recommend to anyone who doesn't always feel like paying $8 an oyster. Beautiful setting, great ambiance, and friendly service. It is not so quiet you feel bad holding a conversation, but not so loud that you can't hear yourselves think.

Best food and service received in several visits over the years.

Great service, good food
LA is notoriously horrible when it comes to service. Not the case @ Delphine where our waiter was solicitous and mindful of our show time. Food was great, drinks were great and very relaxing time out!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Friendly, attentive service. The Kobe beef was to die for. The tempura brocclini was perfect. The cheesey fries were a bit of a low point in the meal, but overall everything was just out of the park!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dine before the theatre
My daughter (age 11) and I have been coming to Delphine for dinner before we attend a show at the Pantages, which is directly across the street. On occasion, my husband has dined with me as well. It has always been delightful and so convenient. The food is wonderful, the location to the theatre is so convenient, and I can't say enough good things about the staff. The hostesses are always so kind, every waiter/waitress we've had has been professional and aware that we need to be served and out the door for showtime, and they have the best host in town, Tom. He always remembers us and makes us feel special. Whether it's with my daughter, husband, or a friend, I always look forward to the start of my evening at Delphine!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect before a show at Pantages
If you're attending a show this is the perfect place to grab a bite beforehand. The service was friendly and prompt and we were able to valet park at The W for only $8 if you are attending a show and eat at Delphine's. And once you're finished eating it's literally a walk across the street to get to the theater!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for brunch before a Matinee
My family and I came here for brunch before seeing a matinee at the Pantages. The Pantages is right across the street, so Delphine was very convenient. They had the brunch standards you'd expect on the menu- eggs benedict, french toast, eggs, pancakes, etc. Lunch options were also available. All of the food was very good. They also make a good mimosa. The restaurant is kid friendly, at least for brunch.
