Great service and food. Just disappointed at the limited menu, which is a small version of what is on their website.

The restaurant is nice but the chairs are hard and uncomfortable, it was a little noisy due some banging silverware and dishes in the background. I don’t know how this happens be there was a gnat buzzing at the table. The food was good and the bellini was pretty good.


Not related but relevant the area next pay booth for the car valet smells horrible, like dead fish, it’s not something you want to smell after eating.

The food here is very well prepared and tasty. I was a bit disappointed though because I looked at their menu on their web site before we made the reservation and the items shown on the published on-line menu did not match the actual menu offered at the restaurant itself. You would think that the restaurant would keep their on-line menu up to date, as that is how people discover their offerings and make determinations on whether to dine there. We used to come here all the time when they first opened, and the menu was geared toward fresh seafood and shellfish items. It still is somewhat seafood oriented, but not as varied and not with as many choices. There was no real shellfish offerings other than mussels, which were delicious, and scallops, which was also very tasty. They also had lobster ravioli. Other than that, no other shellfish was offered. The other negative is that you have to pay $20 to valet park at the W hotel (regularly $25, but you get a $5 discount with validation). This is a steep price to have to pay for parking just to spend an hour or 2 dining at a restaurant. The restaurant itself used to have its own valet parking, that allowed you to pull up right in front on Hollywood Blvd. and it was no where near the $20 price. But that service sadly has disappeared now. You now need to go around to the W hotel driveway to use their valet. This restaurant used to be a hopping spot and was always crowded when we came here. On this visit there were only a handful of other diners. I actually liked that because the place was nice and quiet and we were able to have a good conversation without the need to shout across the table to drown out the room noise, which is a terrible condition that we have experienced at several other so-called popular restaurant spots around the Hollywood/LA area. The hotel lobby itself also used to be a jumping popular spot, but on this particular evening it was like a ghost town. Not sure if this was because it was a weekday?

Great food in at Delphine's in the W in Hollywood. Nice ambiance, and the room is set up such that there are tables that are somewhat private. The only criticism we had was that, although we arrived soon after they opened and there were only a couple of tables already occupied, it took almost 30 minutes for our meal to arrive. We were on a tight schedule and had mentioned that when we placed the order, but we still ended up having to ask the manager to check on the status of our order and ended up rushing to eat so we could arrive at our event on time. Other than that, though, the place is great.

The food was heavenly. I had the New York steak. I started with a Caesar salad, which I shared it was lovely and the dressing fabulous. Overall my experience was fantastic. I love the ambiance. You step off of Hollywood boulevard into a nirvana of cozy booths and quaint tables. Walls lined with books and Knick knacks enclosed in glass. Just a super experience.

Had a pre-show dinner and choose Delphine because close to theater. Food and service (with Ian) were very good. Ambiance is of a high end coffee shop but prices reflect more of a fine dinning restaurant.

I've tried a few times to have Sunday brunch here before a 1:00 pm show at the Pantages and i am now officially moving on. The theatre is across the street - they should have figured out years ago how to deal with the rush or don't open for brunch -- or do open and accept half as many patrons. The restaurant become totally overwhelmed and the kitchen backed up, every patron around us was drumming their fingers on their tables wondering where there food was; it took about :50 to get our food and we were on tenterhooks about whether we'd make the curtain.

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.

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.
