    We loved our Sunday brunch experience. We wish it were no so expensive so we could do it more often. Only problem was that the room with the food was so dark we could barely see the foods we were choosing.

    I chose the 4 course prix fixe menu for dinner and had very high expectations. 1st course was the poached lobster which was a bit tough but still very tasty, 2nd course was clam chowder with only one clam (seriously), 3rd course was the duck breast which was tougher than I expected but still very good with all of the offerings on my plate, and my 4th course was the 24 hour apple which I was not a fan of at all but I wasn't sure if that was because I was so full or if I just chose the wrong dessert for me. I think my disappointment was in the preparation of the food (overcooked). Presentation was beautiful and if nothing else, to sit in that dining room is quite the experience! The atmosphere alone would have me coming back.

    I came here for a joint-birthday dinner with my girlfriend. we had a $100 gift card from my father and it was well spent! i got the lamb, which was succulent, and my girlfriend had the roast chick, which was also delicious. I believe this to be the best restaurant in the downtown area and will be back for sure. I felt so special and the service was perfect.

    My guest & I totally enjoyed the beautiful ambiance & delightful meal during our dining experience at the Green Room. The service was a little slow maybe because of the pre-theater time slot. But I would definitely return. This famed restaurant is a staple in my home town of Wilmington. So if you are celebrating a special ocassion or just want a truly first class culinary experience the Green Room in the Hotel DuPont should be your first choice!!!!!

  • Anniversary breakfast
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    We chose to start the morning of our 10th anniversary with breakfast at the Green Room. A simple note to that effect was added to the open table reservation. We were greeted by name and congratulated on our milestone then taken to our table. The restaurant had reserved the best (most requested) table for us and provided beautiful flowers in the table. Our server then arrived with a complimentary pasty platter with "Happy 10th Anniversary" and our names elegantly written in icing by the pastry chef. We both chose the Hotel DuPont Eggs Benedict, mine traditional and my wife had the smoked salmon option. Both were delicious! The service was spectacular and the hostess provided us with a gift copy of the day's menu to commemorate the occasion.

    We were a group of 18 people celebrating service anniversaries for 6 people how had a combined 200 years of service. The Green Room did an outstanding job by confirming our reservations prior to the event and even handled some last minute changes to the guest list. They seated us at one end of the room, respecting the privacy of the other lunch time guests and allowing us to share stories during lunch. Food was very good and considering the large group it came out in a very timely manner.

    We have eaten at the Green Room at the Hotel DuPont many times and it has always been wonderful.Saturday night the food was outstanding. However, the service was very disappointing. We had to ask for bread and butter even though they had served the table right next to us and just walked right by us. The waiter finally brought wine after we had finished the appetizer course. He brought a different bottle of wine as the wine we had ordered was allegedly out of stock. It felt like classic bait and switch. He did not bring the wine list to let us make a new selection. The waiter also attempted to give us the bill before we were served our desserts. The service was not what that great hotel and restaurant prides itself on and usually delivers.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    I have no complaints regarding the food, the atmosphere or the excellent service. My only feedback is that the service was so efficient our dining experience was over in an hour. We had a party of 4 and the waiter was very attentive. It just seemed that we were being rushed out although there were many empty tables. We had no other plans and were not seeing a show downtown. We were not offered another drink and when we had coffee with our desserts, we were not offered a refill. I would have liked to linger and enjoy the ambiance but that was not to be. I know that there is a fine line between service and timing. I would think the Green Room has that figured out by now to give patrons a rewarding experience & great service.

    As a lifelong Delawarean I had always dreamed of going to the Green Room of the Hotel DuPont but was concerned it may be too pricey. We took the opportunity of the Delaware Dine's Out $30 3 course meal specials and it was a wonderful dining experience. The food was delicious, the surroundings were elegant and beautiful and the service was great.

    Kind of old world and for our anniversary dinner, it was perfect. Limited main courses choices but what we ordered was beautifully presented. Foie Gras was a bit over done but very tasty. Needed a few more patrons to make it a bit livelier. Facebook friend ran the company in charge of the Hotel DUPont restoration...from my home town. Nice touch. Valet parking perfect!

    I hosted four men for a business lunch. The maitre d' handed menus to my guests and ignored me completely in helpipng to seat me and never handing me a menu. As the only woman at the table and the host party, this was a major gaffe for a restaurant that is stiving to maintain a reputation. It occurred at a time when the room was sparsely occupied. there was no excuse that he was too busy. There were only two tables besides ours in the dining room when we arrived and when we left. The waitress apologized and handed me a menu. On the other hand, the waitress was very attentive and provided very good service.

    The minute you enter the dining room you know you are in an old world environment. Wonderful brunch in an absolutely beautiful and elegant setting. There is an omelette and carving station, a large cheese selection and two hot stations with things like eggs benedict, bacon, waffles, etc. There is another hot station with pasta, a salmon dish and warm vegetables. A pastry station tops off the meal. Service was excellent. We visited the Dupont prior to visiting Winterthur which is about 15 minutes away. When we finished eating, we walked through the Brandywine Room to view the Hotel's Wyeth collection. Lovely experience. We will be back!
