Mediterranean

Delilah Mediterranean Tapas Restaurant & Crafted Cocktails / Wine Bar. Formerly housed the legendary bar St. Jerome's, also known as Lady Gaga's favorite haunt. This historic venue has been transformed by the nightlife veteran Mino Habib into a craft cocktail lounge and tapas eatery, which speaks to the neighborhood, alluring the past and its trendy, fashionable present. Located in the heart of New York City's Lower East Side, our restaurant & lounge parallels the edgy vibe of the LES, with Spanish/North African Inspired Mediterranean Fare & Craft Cocktail program reflective of the diverse neighborhood! An all-star team presides over the kitchen and the bar, led by Mixologist Rael Petit (Mulberry Project, Loft 45, Standard Hotel) and Executive Chef Kevin O'Connell, who has worked with Daniel Boulud and David Burke, among others.

From the attentiveness when we walked in, to the great and charismatic bartenders who took care of us all night, it was a great time! The food portions are on the smaller side, but was great! Would recommend.

                                                                My friend I had lunch earlier int the day before visiting a museum and I wanted to find an after hours place where we could have a bite and relax. Happens that we chose one of the coldest nights and it was the day after New Years so I didn't expect a crowd. The timing was great because we had the place to ourselves. We were warmly greeted, sat in a booth where we listened to 1980's music. We had soup and bread and I don't even like soup but it was very good along with the bread. Then we had some wine with a meat and cheese platter. I had baby lamb chops and my friend ordered prime seared hangar steak. They were tapas so we shared and had one of each. We then had a delicious dessert confection of cake, ice cream and whipped cream. All in all it was a great choice to relax on a cold January night. I don't know what it would be like on a regular night with their usual crowd but for us it was very nice.

The wait staff are friendly and attentive, and the venue is really cool.

She was friendly, professional and her along with the rest of the staff were quick with refills of our mimosas and bloody marys. Our party of 4 ordered the Eggs with Chorizo (x2), the Brioche French Toast, and Eggs Benedict respectively. We each found our plates delightful. The meal was as tasty as the presentation of the food was beautiful. We sat in a comfy booth enjoying the 80s and 90s alternative music softly playing in the background. This was our first visit. Next time we are doing brunch in the City Delilah makes our very short list of options.

                                                                The brunch food was horrible. I had some egg whites toast and potato. The toast was stale, the eggs and potatoes look like something you would receive at an airport. It clearly wasn't fresh. Potatoes were processed and looked like what you would receive out of a frozen bag. The only thing I can say is that the price was decent but I could have made a better breakfast at home I had no issues with the ambiance however seating is somewhat limited for a party of two and restricted to the front of the restaurant I wouldn't come here for brunch again unless the quality of the menu was improved

The octopus was very fishy, the baba ganoush was too salty, the meatballs tasted like bread, stuffed mushrooms were disgusting as they tasted like they were frozen and microwaved. Wine was overpriced and not great. Service was spotty. Would never go again.

                                                                Please note this is a brunch review. I have been here for drinks on the weekend and it is a much different experience. Came here with a friend for brunch with a voucher for bottomless brunch. While I normally shy away from deals like this, I live around the corner and had enjoyed drinks here in the past so figured why not. The Good - Brussel sprout appetizer - Nice waitress + hostess - Bottomless drinks till 5 and they did not ask us to leave until then even though we had finished eating long before - Cute space The Bad I am not going to go too hard on this one because I feel like the place has potential but the food was some of the most mediocre I have ever had, and I don't consider myself a "foodie." We had the eggs with toast and potatoes, which were cold and just overall bad - shocking, considering its eggs and potatoes. We did admired someone else's french toast that looked pretty good so maybe go with that if you come here. Price. Yes, $35 is standard for brunch + drinks but the food just not worth it and we were both so happy that we had a voucher/did not pay full price. There was one waitress for the entire place and I felt so sorry for her because she was running around like a chicken with her head cut off, and then ended up messing up our check. Overall I would say this is one of those places that needs to completely change their brunch menu and/or chef or just stick to dinner/late night or happy hour cocktails and call it a day.

The food was great and there was this gentleman who was either a busboy or a bar back who was so sweet and nice to us. Although the waitress was weird, I would definitely go back.
