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.

Always a favourite. But no pizza? No canelloni? No prime rib? It is a pandemic for sure.

Fabulous night out for my birthday dinner. Even though diners were spaced out due to Covid protocol there was still great ambiance in the restaurant. We had burgers, beef dip and pasta dishes that were all delicious.
Our server, Chris, was knowledgeable, friendly and came to our table just enough for us to feel welcome and cared for during our visit.

Thank you so much for your review. We are doing everything to please our guests right now and we know how popular our Dels pizzas are. Unfortunately during these incredibly difficult times, we have to make some tough decisions, one of them regarding our pizza. We feel our Charcoal/Dels menu that we currently have covers a wide variety of items for our guests to choose from during the week. Hopefully we will be able to open more soon and have our full menu.

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. I would love to personally invite you back - please reach out to me kevinb@charcoalgroup.ca Kevin Blokhuis, General Manager

Staff congratulated us for our 21st anniversary, complete with bubbly. Covid-19 protocols are being strictly observed, and my wife and I were totally comfortable dining there.

Great experience and excellent service as always. Only complaint is that they removed the “build your own pasta” option from the menu, which was always our go-to. If there’s no longer a build your own option, bring back the sausage and pepper penne!!!

Thank you so much for your review Rob! We have created a new menu that gives our guests so many 'building blocks' to start if they want to still modify and create their own pasta or pizza! Oh.. and we can make the Sausage and Pepper Penne any time for you as well! You will have to ask for it the next time you are in.. the sausage won't be the same but it will still be delicious!

We decided to go back for date night and were pleasantly surprised that the food and service were back to what we had received in the past. The food was great and the server was very friendly.

We will definitely be putting this restaurant back on the list of our favourite restaurants to eat at.

We haven't really eaten out (besides the odd patio burger) since COVID caused everything to shut down. As our first experience back out together for a date night, Del's was perfect. They made the experience feel as close to normal as possible, while still feeling safe AND providing us with absolutely delicious food. The mobile menu with QR codes at the table is a nice touch.

We were really impressed with being sat in a private dining room all to ourselves. It gave us the flexibility and safety we needed for a party of nine during these times. Our server was extremely friendly and welcoming however service was extremely slow. We were torn between feeling happy that we weren't being rushed but also questioning what was taking so long between courses. Our dinner took 3 hours from start to finish.
