Deerfield Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time dining at Deerfield for brunch and everything was exceptional. We were celebrating our mother's birthday (on Super Bowl Sunday) and the entire staff made the event memorable. The food, the servers, the host....everyone and everything was great. The finale to making the day even better was the Eagles winning the Super Bowl. I want to especially recognize our two servers and the gentleman who gave my grandson the VIP tour/treatment. It was an awesome experience for him. Thank you Deerfield for your exceptional service, professionalism, and a job well done.
Deerfield was OFF THE HOOK! We went on Superbowl Sunday and they truly out did themselves. Everything was delicious, philly cheese steak & eggs.... :-)
Meats, soups, vegetables, ice cream, Deerfield did not miss a beat! . Almost everything was Eagles or Super Bowl themed. We had the best time and left very full. The food quality was top notch as well. We absolutely cannot wait to return! Thanks for another great brunch Deerfield!
Great selection of food. Service was horrible. Sat at the table, waiter never came over to greet us or get drinks. Had to ask someone each time for a refill of drinks. Never cleared the plates away. We were celebrating a bday and no acknowledgement. Very disappointing
We went for champagne brunch on NYE. It was wonderful! There was tons of variety including lamb, pasta, crab legs, crab cakes, delicious waffles, bacon to die for (millionaire and regular), and was totally worth the price. The dessert bar was by far my favorite part!! Can't wait to go back!
We usually LOVE the Santa brunch and we have attended this event for many years and always have left happy & full!! Deerfield's service is usually amazing, but this year our service was poor. We had 2 or 3 waiters and it was really confusing. They usually check in on us occasionally, but we found that we had to flag them down. They also forgot our drinks a few times and it took a LONG time to find someone to get our check. As far as the food...we definitely miss the Mac & Cheese station you used to have and our kids were really disappointed that a brunch would not have pancakes or French toast? There was a waffle station but they were hard and thin. The crab cakes were delicious!!!
Hoping that this years marginal food & service was just a fluke and that next year, the food & service will return to what we are used to. I would still recommend.
It was a bit hectic and not very organized getting seated at our reservation time. The food was good but some was not too hot. The layout was nice, tge room beautiful. The ease of which to see Santa was very very nice. He took time with each child. My grandchildren had a good time. Thank you
I have dined here many times in the past on holidays and for Sunday brunch. The food and service has always been good. On this occasion however I was very unhappy.
I made a special request to be seated near the dining room entrance so my 84 year old father would not have to walk across the enormous dinning room. The request was detailed in writing when I made the reservation online. I repeated it again the week before Thanksgiving when the restaurant called me to confirm my reservation. I repeated it a third time when I checked in upon arriving to the restaurant. The hostess STILL got it wrong and proceeded to lead my party halfway across the dining room. When I expressed my displeasure and asked if she was aware of my request, she said "yes, you wanted to sit close the buffet." Obviously the hostess did not listen to me when I reminder her at check in that I wanted a table near the entrance.
This will be the last time my family dines at Deerfield.
This is our second Thanksgiving my family and I had at Deerfield and we plan on returning next year. Food is always delicious with a wide variety of choices. Staff is exceptionally nice and very welcoming. Atmosphere is pleasant as well. It was nice that we had 2 servers this year for our table of 3 compared to the 1 server we had last year for our table of 7. Our servers were very nice but did not keep up with our drink orders very quickly. We had to flag them down a few times. We would've liked to have coffee with our dessert and were almost done and had to flag one of the servers down just to get coffee. Also we were sitting there having finished and ready to leave and again had to search for our server to bring our check. Definately will go back again next year. Beautiful place! Just those few things with the servers could be improved upon.
While there is always a concern with food quality at brunches as elaborate as at Deerfield, they have found a way to overcome this as the food was even better than our last visit last year. A great venue, food and terrific service - well worth the trip to Sunday Brunch. Well done. Please keep up the great work! We will be back.
Very good food. Expensive unless you focus on the sea food and carving station. For some reason, the eggs benedict is very slow to come out of the kitchen, mine took 30 minutes so it was good I did my first trip to the buffet rather then waiting for the eggs benedict.
Bountiful brunch - go extremely hungry because you'll want to try everything and there's much to much to choose from. I gave it my best and walked away overstuffed! Worse than a thanksgiving feast! Seriously though, there is so much to try from homemade fresh Belgian waffles to omelettes to crab cakes and crab legs to the carving station with three types of meat/poultry and a nice selection of dessert including ice cream with toppings. One of the new additions was a fresh donut wall. The apple cinnamon cider donut was so tempting I bit into it before I made it back to my table. It's a little pricey but you'll understand why.
Always a treat to dine at Deerfield. The buffet has been changed and no longer offers the raw bar. I really missed the oysters. They also did away with the best bread pudding I've ever had. I know oysters can be pricey, but please bring back the highlight of our meal!
My family and I could not miss the opening to 111ft brunch goodness this past Sunday 9/24/17. Deerfield has done it again with its Sunday brunch . From the food to the service it was great. David and his staff are great .. the new add Stirfry to the brunch is great . Jd and his partner can’t remember her name were very on top of our table . Jeff Robbison , David Quinn the managers were on top of checking on every table making sure everything was ok ... the family and I will be back for sure .. me for that Stirfry and a great bloody Mary 👍🏾
We attended brunch on Father's Day and had a 1:30 reservation but didn't get seated until 2:10. The place was packed & the servers were visibly frazzled & not very friendly. We had iced tea & water for our beverages & each time we had to flag down a server for refills we had to ask for ice because none of the glasses came with it. The food itself was excellent, however, since we were seated late, some of the desserts ran out because the buffet was only scheduled to run until 3:00. Therefore, the advertised ice cream dessert bar that my daughter was so looking forward to was basically a dish of vanilla ice cream with a few sprinkles on top and the scrapings of some chocolate sauce from the bottom of the dish that was remaining! The rest of the fixins were gone and were not to be replaced, as was the apple pie, the lemon meringue pie and numerous other goodies. While I did enjoy the items on the buffet, I found the $43.00 per person charge to be a bit much.
We came for Father's Day brunch. The staff was well prepared for such a large turnout.
The variety of food was incredible and everything was delicious. We were seated by the window facing the 18th hole. Our servers were excellent. It was just a little pricey.
We have lived in Delaware for 33 years and have always heard how great the Sunday brunch was at Deerfield. For my money it was OK at best and WAY OVERPRICED. Although there were good things, I was VERY disappointed in the raw bar. Only two selections - oysters and crab legs. The oysters were not at all firm (I've had much better) and I have NEVER seen crab legs that were so SMALL. We will NOT be going back.
So not worth the undisclosed $57/pp! Which does not include coffee, juice, or adult beverages. Very crowded, loud and uncomfortable. The first table they attempted to seat us at had a filthy table cloth and had 5 seats despite our reservation for 6 people. Food was mediocre at best. Limp salad, light crabs, terrible crab cakes. Oh and not to mention buffett so all the wonderful things that come w that-- fingers all over everything.
Party of 8 for Mother's Day Brunch....
As always the food was good. But for the first time at this restaurant we had inconsistent service at the table during the buffet style brunch. We were a bit surprised by this but it seems the staff may have been overwhelmed by the volume. It took over 10 minutes for someone to come to our table(after we beckoned a different waiter for service). Throughout our meal the plates were left at our table forcing our party to shift used plates to the middle or side until someone finally noticed or we grabbed a passing by staff member and requested they be removed. On top of all that our drink orders did not arrive at all in some cases, or for those that did it took a really long time.
As we love this place for Mother's Day, when we can get in, this experience won't change our desire to patronize this time around. We will chalk it up to higher than as n planned volume and perhaps a little understaffing for the event.
My family really enjoyed Mother's Day brunch. The facilities are upscale and the staff was very friendly. We had to wait a few minutes for our table. There was a terrific variety of food and the quality was very good. My only real complaint is that some of the chafing dishes did not keep the food hot enough.
