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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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
