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 food was splendid we had the catfish and the fried chicken with the wolds most amazing Mac and cheese! Their Mac and cheese crab roll is fantastic and our server was just the best! 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.

I love going to Deltas because of the music and the drinks. Our bartender was always there when we needed her and she made sure our glasses was always full. I was very disappointed with the food. My Smothered chicken was cold and white rice was hard. The string beans was great but everything else on my plate was not. I would still come here for the drinks but the food has definitely gone downhill and the taste as well.

We had a great time! The DJ was hip and played a variety of music to suit the mixed aged, hip crowd. He kept the atmosphere lively and fun. Our waitress was pleasant and informative. She knew the food menu and the drink specials.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday and at the end pf our meal, she surprised us with a glass of champagne and a candle on a cute birthday plate! Over all, we had a great time and will definitely be returning!

Ambiance was beautiful; bartender waitressing our table on 1st floor was good. We ordered appetizer and dinner at the same time. Appetizer came out quick...but it was 50 minutes to get our food for 2 ppl..we were waiting on the catfish (delicious) and the fried chicken that we had..tasted dry..as if it was sitting under a heat lamp waiting for the catfish to be cooked so the food could be brought out to the table together. I would 100% go back to Deltas and eat there for sure......just won't order the fried chicken. The check had automatically included a 20% gratuity which I didn't find as usual reataueant practice for a party of 2 (I can understand auto gratuity for a party of 6 or more)...though our server deserved that 20% for sure.

So upon entering it has a nice feel, love the older bar. Everyone was polite and greeted us and promptly got to our table in the back corner of the establishment. What we later realized is that the music in this place while fine, the bass is ridiculous, and sitting in the corner did not help. We had such a headache that we couldn't stay for dessert. We started out with the peach ribs, delicious. My wife ordered baked chicken which was very good and I ordered what I was looking forward to, southern fried chicken. While the chicken was delicious and skin perfect, this bird must have had anorexia, I've had wings bigger than the leg I was served. The greens on point, mac and cheese excellent. Besides the bass and skinny fried chicken, this place is great. If we go back will definitely be asking to sit elsewhere. Also, make sure you look at your check, they automatically add 20% gratuity, even with just 2 people.
