We have been to Dal Mare twice over the past couple of months for dinner. The atmosphere, food, and drink are amazing. My only complaint was that on our last visit (the last week in September) the air conditioning was blasting and it was freezing cold. Otherwise, everything was great!
Good food, nice atmosphere and great staff.
We went to Dal Mare for our anniversary. We had a crab cake appetizer followed by ribeye steaks. The steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked medium rare. We had creme brûlée for dessert which was also excellent. The service was just as it should be.
What a wonderful dinner. Mask and separation and we never would have noticed. Kyle, our server, was pleasant and efficient. We completely enjoyed our experience. Ny strip and salmon were the choices and they were excellent. Thanks Kyle! See you soon!
My husband and I love coming to Dal Mare. Marla always makes us feel so welcome, like its an extension of our home. Jennifer is a sweetheart and took great care of us as our server. The food is always fabulous. I had my favorite, the Potato Crusted Salmon. My husband had the Steak and Shrimp special.
On a Covid note, every precaution was taken which made for a relaxing dining experience. We had a table outside, and felt completely at ease.
Many thanks, and we’re looking forward to next time!
Delicious menu, generous portions, yummy wine list. The service is friendly and attentive.
Had the Flank Steak Special which was horrible! Shoe leather.
Might have been an "off" night but very disappointed.
Fantastic evening. It has become one of our primary choices for a wonderful date night.
Attentive staff, friendly and aware of needs. Food was plentiful and tasty. Be sure to add in sides which were a bit expensive but worth the extra flavor. Parking is on street.
Excellent food and service! Enjoyed our birthday dinner.
Dal Mare offered a number of specials that evening. My spaghetti with mushrooms was very tasty - it was a special. Our server had an incredible memory of all the specials and she was very attentive. We had a great time. Wish there had been more customers in that night, for the owners sake.
Great dinner - both drinks and food came out quickly and were spot on. Salmon was particularly good - very nice atmosphere & Robert the host was very professional and helpful...very nice, stress free dining experience.
We enjoyed our food very much and the service was exceptional. However, we are not 'locals' ,so to speak, so in order to want to come back to dine, Dal Mare would have to take steps to ensure a more appropriate dining environment for a weekend night.
On Friday and Saturday nights, you might consider requiring guests at bar to be seated. While we were dining, your bar guests were spilling over to near our table which was not a high-top.
We would definitely return to have a bite to eat sitting at bar during a weekday but would not return to sit at a table on a weekend.
On other hand, if you are making money serving primarily to 'locals', I would not change anything.
Great night out with friends. Best Salmon I have had in a long time!
Really great location and beautiful decor. Food is always excellent, especially the seafood. Service is also always excellent. Great cocktails and wine. Great for date night and special occasions.
Service was terrific. Food was perfectly cooked. We were on a tight schedule and they were very accommodating. Great dinner
Excellent food....appetizers and wine list A+....entrees excellent as well. Great and varied menu. Only issue was that it was slow took about 45-50 min for food to come out...but overall would definitely go back!
We arrived a half hour before our reservation so that we could have a drink at the bar. The bartenders were personable and we were waited on the minute we sat down. Our table was ready on time and we were seated promptly on a very busy Saturday night. Our server, Meg, was excellent. We both ordered the scallop risotto and we were so happy we did, it was outstanding! Try the chocolate lava cake - so good!
Worst service I have ever had in my entire life. The server we had told us a completely different set of specials and dessert than the server at the table next to us. We had to ask to put our food order in over an hour after we sat because our server didn’t even come to our table. They hung up our jackets for us with a completely different ticket than they gave us. The food was very good besides the dessert that we had which was supposed to be a plain cheesecake with a raspberry sauce and when it came out it was a strawberry cheesecake and was sour.
We had a lovely valentines dinner at del mare. Food was great waitress great a lovely place for dinner .
It’s rare that you go to a previously owned restaurant that was really good, and it’s even better. Our food was amazing! Staff was very good. I live down the road and am ashamed that I haven’t given it a try since Jim sold it. Great job guys. Also, great touch with the rose and chocolate for my valentine of 32 years.
Food was good for 3 of us , not great for 1 other in our party. Waitress took off bill and offered a free dessert which was nice. Not enough staff for a Saturday night, we waited a half hour to get first drink
A lovely setting. The food was underwhelming. And overpriced, compared to other similar Cape Ann restaurants. The soup was not hot. Nothing for vegetarians. Regret to say we were disappointed
We celebrated a birthday here and it was absolutely perfect! Great wine list and a very creative menu, even for someone like me with Celiac’s disease. We’ll be back!
Had dinner with friends at a local spot. Shared a charcuterie plate and salmon appetizer before indulging in main course. We all picked specials for the evening, gnocchi, lobster ravioli, and a stuffed pork chop. Had a very nice white wine to complement the meal. No complaints at all!
Birthday dinner was perfect ! Love this place ... the ambiance , the service , the the food , and how sweet that they comped our dessert for our birthday celebration! We will definitely be back 👍
We love this place—loved it as Cygnet and still love it!
Wonderful, welcoming atmosphere, great menu, terrific service. We will be back!
Food was good not great. Very expensive
Food and service highest quality! Would easily recommend to friends and family.
I WhatsApp server was fantastic atmosphere was great
Just wonderful short ribs with fried rosemary polenta!
New Year’s Eve! The ambiance and decorations where spectacular! Food was spectacular and portions went beyond expectations! Definitely recommend, our New year eve dinner was outstanding.
Food was excellent, service not at the same level, would go back again, thinking service was a one off
We had a wonderful waitress and a great meal. Burratta Ball, file, lamb chop, Brussel sprouts and mashed potato.
This was my first visit to Dal Mare and it was most enjoyable. The service was excellent and attentive. Had multiple visits from the manager to discuss wine selections. Had a Tangueray 10 gin martini that ws excellent. My party all remarked how quiet the restaurant was. Such a pleasent. Only negative I can find is the shortage of parking.
We went to celebrate my husband's birthday and Melissa our server was great. She was patient and did not lose her cool eventhough we peppered her with lots of questions. Food was wonderful! We will return. Thank you.
Very lovely ambience....seated in a booth, private but still a part of the conviviality. Welcoming and elegant....will definitely return!
Janice was timely, helpful and awesome. Food was delicious. Ambience outstanding
From the moment we walked in Del Mare is warm inviting and the perfect place to escape to have a quiet dinner. The service and the food is truly impeccable. Everyone is very attentive and is always willing to help out if you need anything. One of the owners was there also and she was making herself available to every table to see how people we doing. That’s definitely someone who cares about the whole experience. We will definitely be back again very soon. Thanks so much Del Mare
