    Ambience was good. The only issue was as we were leaving. The staff behind the bar became rowdy, dancing tweaking on each other as if they had been drinking. I was surprised that such a classy looking place employee behave in such a way

    I recommend making a reservation on the weekends as it gets crowded. The service was absolutely perfect. The food was perfect and took a short time to come out. So much good food. The staff was wonderful as well as the ambiance. Definitely food for your Soul!

    I chose Delta's because I remember the food being outstanding the previous times I've been. Something has changed. It is now just subpar for me. Nice place, but I will no longer have a craving for this place. :(

    The food was not great. Unfortunately, I was expecting much more the mac and cheese left much to be desired from a restaurant whose specialty is mac and cheese. The yams were good and the pork chops were pretty decent. Our server, Omar, was very helpful with switching out a dish that did not live up to my expectations. The drinks were pretty good. All in all, not sure I’d come back to eat.

    Waitress and cocktails were very good. Food was subpar. None of us in my party enjoyed their food. Delta’s quality has really gone down over the past few years. Music was loud and the manager was rushing staff to push patrons out. Sad that one of the few soul food restaurants in the area is losing its luster and does not offer a valuable dining experience.

    Yesterday my second time dining at Delta's, and it was as nice as the first time. We had reservations for 6pm, and we were seated as soon as we got there. The ambiance was nice. They decorated for NYE and it definitely set the mood for fun! They had great music playing (R&B)...I was jamming😜. I ordered the Fried Catfish, Mac, Yams and Cabbage. The sides were DELICIOUS, the Catfish was just okay, and it was only one piece. I should have ordered the Smothered Turkey Chops. I ordered them on my first visit and they were DELICIOUS! I would definitely go back. And I definitely recommend them! I took 1 star off because it was TOO loud (haha)!!

    I made a reservation for my best friend’s birthday and when we arrived we were told that it was a fixed menu that evening for New Year’s and that it would be $85 per person. That was not written anywhere on their website. I even called days before making the reservation and the person who answered the phone didn’t even know the hours for New Year’s Eve. Nor did they mention the fixed price. We left and dined at a different restaurant. Their menu prices are relatively low so I’m confused as to why they would charge $85 per person that night anyway. This was going to be my first time there but that experience was ruined.

    This restaurant had an available reservation at the 630 time slot. I checked their hours for Sunday and they closed at 7 pm. I called ahead of time on the day of my reservation and they said it’s no problem just be there by 645, their kitchen closes at 7. My party arrived before 645 and we were waiting to be seated. The host took someone’s to go order instead of seating us. He came back at 650 and said he wouldn’t be able to seat us but we can place a to go order and their kitchen was closed. This was very upsetting and unprofessional of this restaurant. If this is the case do not have a 630 reservation when your kitchen closes within 30 minutes of seating time. This does not allow a proper dining experience and I imagine if we were seated we would’ve felt rushed. The host called over the manager after explaining that the servers were all slammed and he couldn’t find somewhere to seat us. The manager was no help and we ended up leaving the restaurant and going somewhere else that sat us almost immediately. Very upsetting experience at deltas!!!

    Was seated upstairs when I mentioned when rsvp that I have bad knees can’t climb stairs need to sit downstairs.. never accommodated my request.. Than when seated up stairs .. it was hot.. And waitress was everywhere.. so she wasn’t able to attend to us .. too often .. she was sweet kind but doing too much .. Food was the big issue .. It soul food so .. You know what collard green and Mack n cheese should taste like .. cheesy n collard should be tender.. ordered ox tail .. with bbq .. I was thinking the bbq sauce would be cooked into oxtail .. wrong.. it was bbq sauce drizzled on oxtail.. all I can say is Yuk.. disappointing.. it looked good but looks wasn’t what mattered smh.. meal was not cheap .. couldn’t eat .. so we left.. If anyone knows a good restaurant with good ambiance food and music please let me know .. in Nj area please .. I wont be going back to Delta until they get food right..

    I really loved the setting and the live band. Only thing I had a problem with are the ribs. It could of been more tasty and the Mac and cheese could of had more flavor. But the price was reasonable. Yet me and my wife enjoy ourselves. Yet I will be coming back with my wife and enjoy other foods.

    The ambience and design of the restaurant was lovely. The restaurant is a warehouse like brick building with very high ceilings , we sat on the second floor in the balcony area. My cocktail was delicious and decently proportioned , I appreciated that each entree comes with two sides, I definitely felt like it was a good value.

    DJ and vibe were great! Server not so much. Towards the end of our dinner she basically brought us the check without asking if we wanted anything else….Dessert maybe???? That would have been nice to ask the table. Her response to me was oh well it’s been 90 minutes!!! On top of that she brought me a drink that I did not request and insisted that I did when I knew I didn’t. Luckily I was with a great group of friends and I wasn’t gonna let her kill my joy.

    The food was prepared properly and very tasteful. Seating is only conducive to large parties. Couples are placed in a small balcony area upstairs that can be quite terrifying since your seat is near the balcony rail. Too many small tables in this area no privacy. Music or live band is too loud which make conversation at the table challenging. Waitresses are polite but could have been more attentive to guest requests . $12 Entrance/ service fee on your food bill in addition to standard gratuity is quite opportunistic.

    I've been to Delta's many times. This time was just different. The portions was smaller and even not as tasty. The whiting fish was good and hot. The yams were dense not soft. If you want average soul food, which in my opinion Deltas is now, that's the spot. Good atmosphere for drinks and appetizers too.
