We love De Mar and never have any complaints about the food. A little disappointed that we made reservations for our anniversary (which was noted) about a month in advance and we were sat at a bar table. Our service wasn't as attentive as we have come accustom to either at a Cameron Mitchell spot. This won't stop us from coming, we really do love this place, just a little bummed it wasn't an "A game" kind of experience.

We had a wonderful time. The food and drinks were delicious. Our service was fantastic. We made a last minute reservations for a Friday night and they were able to accommodate us. The oysters were a standout.

Was not very impressed. I went in thinking I’d have a nice seafood dinner but we were given the brunch menu at dinner time. Since it had appetizers and a few large meal options I just thought they used the same menu all day. So I ordered some chicken pasta that was very underwhelming but it was the only thing that seemed appealing on the brunch menu at dinner time. It wasn’t until after I tried to order dessert for a friend’s birthday that my server told me I had the wrong menu. The dinner menu did look to have a much better selection but now I’ll probably never know because I don’t think I’ll return.

Our party sat outdoors as it was a beautiful evening. High Street was busy and it started to get a little cooler later, so we should have got a table inside on second thought. But the food, especially the Skate fish was amazing and service very prompt. We will be back!!

My wife and I enjoyed our time at Del Mar. The food was good. The mussels appetizer was exceptional but the salads were just good. The staff were outstanding and quick and always asking if we needed anything else. For us the atmosphere was too loud to have a nice dinner out......but it was a home football Saturday and that is to be expected. We will be back

With this being my first visit to the restaurant, I enjoyed the visit. We visited early evening during the week. The food was timely, fresh, and delicious. I left not still feeling hungry, but feeling lite, which was great. I will return.

1. Tables are extraordinarily close together -- especially in this time of Covid -- and they were not skipping tables. The diners and the next table were as close as my fellow diners. So tired of restaurants stacking tables like a lunch counter.
2. Music is a tad bit loud for my taste.
3. 2/3 meals were good; fish on the fish sandwich was overcooked and dry.
