Over priced. Food was not very good and when it’s at that price point it was even worse. Would not return.

We used to come here all the time and loved it. However, prices have been raised and menu items have been dropped. Unsure if we’ll be back after being loyal costumers for 4 years

As regulars, we get a discount from the list price on everything. That's cool, and I try to leave about half of the discount as an additional tip (there's standard 17% service charge). It's to the point that when we walk in, the bartender puts my Iced tea down within 30 seconds, including the specific sweetener I use in it. Barb has to order because she tries a different wine each time. The other great thing is, since we come before shows at the Pantages, we like to watch Jeopardy, and the bartender indulges us. This time it was NL playoffs, so we watched the Dodger game instead, but that's the bartender doing what we'd like to do. Oh, and the bathrooms are Oh-So decoratorish, but there's no line, so it's the last stop before we head to the show at the Pantages.

This restaurant has changed and we're none too pleased. The menu is very small and disappointing - we were told that there's a new chef who changed the menu. The prices on the entrées are way too high for what you get. Yes, the food is good, but the portions are too small for the prices charged. However, my cocktail was quite good but it was the best part of the whole dinner, frankly - but it was $18! After several dinner experiences at Delphine, this most recent one was completely disappointing and we will look for someplace else to dine in the area when we attend an event at The Pantages. Additionally, our booth's table needed to be repaired or replaced due to damage, and the semicircular seat had some stains on it. We feel the restaurant needs some freshening up, for sure.

Love the location... perfect for pre show good. Was disappointed the brunch menu was the only option on a Saturday ... pancakes and breakfast are. Or the most pleasing good items when you are sitting outside and it’s 80 degrees.

Our go to opposite the Pantages theatre. Valet parking and easy access to the theatre. We were disappointed to see that the menu has been drastically cut back and indeed had we not found something on the bar menu for our teenage kids, we would probably have left . The quality of the food was good and the service excellent. The prices are high but no more so than others in this location .

We have been going here for years. It is very convenient for the Pantages and parking. I doubt we will return. Over the years the menu has changed and it has gotten so small with few choices. In addition the Burrata asks came out so visually unappealing. The server told me the W has taken over it, apparently not for the better. It is not inexpensive and not with going. Too bad.

I've been going to Delphine's for years because it's conveniently located across the street from the Pantages Theatre. However, they have recently shrunk their menu to about a third of what it was. The server said they're in the process of re-doing the menu, but it sounded more like an excuse. The choices were too few to make me want to return.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Lobster ravioli, though at $42 it’s pricey for what you get. Thank you for carrying Chopin Vodka from Poland. Steven provided excellent service and has a great sense of humor. Thank you!

We always came here because of the ease of Pantages Theatre parking and because the menu offered a variety of options for brunch or lunch. Well they’ve changed the menu with limited options. The service has always been sub-par. I’m not sure if they give the wait staff too many tables or perhaps there isn’t enough coordination between the wait and busing staff. Either way it might be time to find other options.

Have been going to Delphine for the past 5-years before the show at Pantages (about 5-times/year). We go merely because it's convenient - not because it's great. Very uninspired menu that rarely changes. Minimal selection and the service is never great. In fact - it's usually sub-par. This past Saturday my wife and I finally decided we would try to find another alternative for next year's season of shows. We can't take the boredom any longer.

While our waiter was absolutely wonderful maybe the chef at brunch was having an off day? Our fruit salad with yogurt and honey was just a plate of chopped up fruit and a cup of yogurt on the side? Not the presentation you'd expect for the price paid. They also forgot one plate of fruit (we ordered two). The duck confit hash was so salty it was inedible and everything else was just OK. Not great considering the price point. But the W is super cool! So there's that!

We chose Delphine for dinner because we were going to a play across the street at the Pantages. The best value was the valet parking at the W Hotel, where Delphine validates. Otherwise, it was an OK meal for tourist prices. Not really a surprise.
No strong recommendations on food, for or against. No great options nearby.

We have been coming to Delphine's for years, before every show at the Pantages. We have been through several menus. We finally found something we loved.....tostadas, only to be told they were taken off the menu. The new Cesar salad was too lemony and certainly not as delicious. The chicken was dry. I had a Cesar with chicken and there wasn't a lot of chicken (cubed) and certainly NOT worth the price. The risotto was very good. All in all, the food is average at best and certainly not worth the prices.

GREAT place for some pre-theater dinner! I'd recommend going even earlier to beat the rest of the pre-theater crowd, plus you get better service before the main crowd arrives. Food and service was excellent!

WE HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS PRE-THEATER, BUT WILL NEVER GO AGAIN. THE MENU HAS CHANGED TO WHERE THERE ARE NO LIGHT BITES ANYMORE OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN A HAMBURGER. SOME PEOPLE ON THEIR WAY TO THEATER DO NOT WANT TO EAT A HEAVY MEAL. YOU NO LONGER HAVE OPTIONS. RESTAURANT WAS EMPTY SO THAT TELLS YOU SOMETHING!

We always liked to go to Delphine before going to a play at Pantages, usually a matinee. Sadly they don't have a lunch menu, only brunch on Sunday. We could always find something, they had excellent "bowls" usually with quinoa and some type of fish or chicken, etc. They have removed those from the menu. My husband ordered a Nicoise salad. It had very unusual ingredients, like citrus slices, but it was ok. I ordered the burger, no cheese, side salad no fries. The burger came with cheese and fries. Also, our bus person spilled the milk he brought for my husband's iced coffee and did not clean it up, we had to. At the same time he brought sweeteners that were in a container that had ketchup on it. This place used to be packed with people going to the play, it was practically empty, however the play was sold out. I suppose other people got the news before we did, that this restaurant has gone downhill. We won't be back. We will simply find another place to eat before each play, and we are season ticket holders.

We arrived about 6:45 pm for dinner to make an 8:00 show at the Pantages. We ordered quickly.
The ceasar salad was terrible; just lettuce and anchovies, no cheese. Portions were small
No bread was offered.
Our dinners came out at 7:35 pm, which was too late. We had to pass on dinner in order to make the show.
We were charged for the drinks and the salad. We should have been comped for everything.
The manager did apologize for the delay.

Hello, I have been going to Delphine's for years and it has always been my favorite restaurant to go to when going to Pantages. I have to say, this was the first and only time EVERYTHING was horrible. Service was not great and the food was absolutely horrible. I was told their was a new Chef before we ordered because I noticed a very small Limited menu. We ordered Hummus appetizer, Risotto and chicken. My friend who ordered the Risotto sent back because she said it tasted like dog food. She then got salmon which was very dry. My chicken, was just as bad which I hardly touched. Service was bad , server hardly came around and when we were displeased with our food, she didn't flinch or try in any way to make it better. So with $150 bill later it was definitely not worth it. If we weren't in a hurry yo get to play, I would have spoke to manager. I have always loved and raved over Delphine's.....NOT ANY
