My friends and I had a great time. Didn’t realize there’d be a live DJ— that elevated the fun to a higher level. Staff did a good job at enforcing proper covid precautions throughout the restaurant. The food and drinks were excellent (as always expected at Delta’s), the servers were friendly, responsive and diligent, and my entire 8-person party was already planning our next Delta’s day before we’d even left. Awesome time, awesome place.
P.S. The Hennessy mimosas are WOW.

I was very disappointed with the service @ Delta’s on April 30, 2021! My husband and I have frequent this restaurant alone or with friends! On this occasion a friend & I had dinner, my friend was not happy with her beverage order and wanted to change it, but was told she could not! I have never heard of such a thing , and have never been denied! Needless to say it let a bad taste in our mouths! Hopefully if I return in the near future, this will not be the case!

I will not be going back!!!!! Customer service needs work. They really need to be more accommodating to there guest.My group Unfortunately was late for the reservation so it was cancelled do to everyone not being there on time. But they have a rule that if everyone in your party is not there then you have to wait until all get there before being seated Which is very messed up !! Like if one person doesn’t show do to any reason we can’t still be seated and enjoy ourselves. It’s a ridiculous rule because we show up and people coming in after us being seated and we get stuck with waiting and the bs seat. But I was annoyed to be placed outside while they held seats for different time slots. They didn’t care the about we felt not the customer service just there rule. Things happen and when a group make a reservation and other ppl aren’t there on time not don’t take away from everyone that came on time it spoils the night and the enjoyment for others because of your rule. If people show up late and don’t get to fully enjoy night it’s on them not group! With all being said i will not return. The vibe for was not cool.

We usually love Delta's and have always had a positive experience. However, ever since COVID-19, their food has been awful. Our catfish was soggy and the short ribs were cold. Also, everything was too salty and not made with the usual love it's made with. The service was decent, though.

Our waitress was fabulous and the food tasted good but the portion of fried whiting was very thin, small and a little disappointing compared to other soul food restaurants we’ve gone to such as Kelseys in AC or South Soul food and Jazz club in Philly. We traveled an hour and 50 minutes to try your restaurant for the first time and it was very nice so we will probably come again. Thanks for listening. I just can’t say enough about our waitress. She was awesome.

The food is good. The Ciroc Mango Sangria sneaks up to you. Only downside was the automatic 20% gratuity. It was just 2 of us. Normally, is 18% automatic for large parties. With that being said, I usually tip more than 20% but since I was forced to pay 20%, I left it as is.

Food was flavorless, meat was smother in gravy but still dust dry. My daughter and I left with our plates still full because we couldn’t force ourselves to eat any of it. Soul food with no seasoning. None. Not even salt.

Service was trash. Waiter was nowhere to be found (place wasn’t full) and when we asked someone else for drink refills she sent us to the bar.

Live Music was amazing.

NEVER going back, total waste of money.

It was a friend’s birthday. I have been to Delta’s prior to COVID19 and it was a great experience, but on April 10, 2021, the experience was not the same. Please just get a take out order! We arrived and all went well until we sat and ordered our drinks, appetizers and entrees. Why did everything come to the table at the same time? The table for two could hold all the plates and the suggestion from the server was do you want to box up the food?

We felt harried. The waitress kept apologizing, while handing us those boxes and the plastic bags. It’s definitely not the spot to enjoy your meal. We spent more time waiting for our 4:30pm reserved table to be ready. Trust me ...get your food to go, because that’s is what is going to happen anyway. We drove to NJ, from Brooklyn, NY to be disappointed with the customer service.

My guess if they turn over the tables quickly <90minutes hour they recoup some of monies lost from the pandemic. IDK

BTW our collard green dip was stuck to the box and the chips were soggy ... that appetizer is not good for take out.

The aesthetic here is just so elegantly and very rich with black culture and the music is bomb!! From lauryn hill to Beyoncé it was awesome. And their banana pudding is delicious and from a black owned businesses as well! This is fantastic restaurant that everyone will enjoy!

The facility was clean and they were mindful of covid policies and procures. We had a reaervation and were seated immediately. Food was delicious, came out hot and quick. Our server, Amber, made us feel like we were chatting with a friend. My only complaint is the music was loud and i felt like i had to yell across the table.
