Overall a great experience, sadly disappointed with server. Not as attentive as we’ve had in the past. Welcomed us back, took drink order, popped by after manager delivered our meals to see how our ‘first bite was’ ….. had to ask 2nd time for bread. That was it until we asked for the bill …. another time lapse while she took the order from table beside us….. The restaurant was maybe 1/4 full, no excuse why more prompt service wasn’t provided. Perhaps the servers time management will get more efficient as it gets busier, fingers crossed.

Thank you so much for your review! I will not make any excuses for your service Saturday night and your server should have been more attentive - specially now as we welcome guests back into our restaurant for the first time with our menu since November 15th. I am so sorry for your experience. If you wouldn't mind emailing me directly so I can know whom your server was so I can follow up with them, I would greatly appreciate it. kevinb@charcoalgroup.ca Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager

The food was not what we expected because the menu was from charcoal. Last time i attended here the menu was different and the food was delicious not so much this time

Dels Italian Kitchen
Responded on June 26, 2021

Thank you so much for your review. Unfortunately Del's kitchen does still remain closed so yes, we are basically an extension of the Charcoal patio for the time being. Once we can have in house dining again we will be bringing back the menu that you know and love! Having said that, I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your food. I would love to hear more about this so I can follow up with the chef upstairs. Please feel free to email me personally kevinb@charcoalgroup.ca . Thank you again!

Being near the parking garage didn’t work. We were placed under a hanging flower basket in the corner near the entrance.
Service was pretty good, but let down by our drink having lipstick on the glass from the previous user. That put a downer on the rest of the meal due to Covid concerns, despite countless apologies and a free dessert.
Disappointing as I’ve always given this place 4-5 stars.
With the restaurants streak of amazing meals, I’d imagine the Covid restrictions have really made it difficult for them, making this an isolated event.

Dels Italian Kitchen
Responded on June 24, 2021

Thank you so much for your review Joe. It was not unexpected for you to have the negative experience that you had. Finding lipstick on your glass from a previous guest should never happen and if it had happened to me, I would have had the same reaction. With only 9 patio tables available to us and our kitchen still remaining closed for the time being, we piled you both with a lot of disappointments for your anniversary dinner. I will be personally reaching out to you. I'm so sorry again.

We had the brussel sprout skillet and calamari for appetizers. Both were delicious! I think it was the best calamari I've ever had: not rubbery, not oily, really well seasoned. My main was a little bit dry (I had the chicken parm which came with spaghetti in a creamy sauce), but still good! Our server was Chris and he was so so awesome! He was really friendly and prompt. He recommended a really tasty bottle of wine and the amazing appetizers. He also accommodated special requests from a disabled member of our group.

Food was cold, we were rushed to eat and get out, told multiple times how much time we had left to eat, meanwhile the server was incorrect and I had to remind her twice as to our reservation time and how much time we had left. I understand COVID dining rules, however we weren’t pushing the envelope or trying to bend the rules. We finished our meal on time and left. She actually told us we don’t have time for dessert and coffee LOL when we actually did and ordered it anyways, and still finished on time! There is a way to manage through COVID dining rules and unfortunately this experience was not enjoyable. It actually will make me think twice about rebooking Del’s. 2 days After posting this review I will give credit to the GM at Del’s/Charcoal they called my cell and discussed the issues. Great follow up and customer service. I was impressed on how he dealt with it. Fantastic!

I am so sorry for your experience with us on Thursday Dave. As we try to navigate our way through this new 'norm' we are making some mistakes. We do not ever mean to make anyone feel rushed or unwanted in the restaurant. On top of that, our food standards are much better than being described as 'cold' and should have been addressed that evening. I'm sorry that it was not.
