Delta's Ratings and Reviews
The dining experience was good. The food was very good but the one thing that bothered me was the restaurant has a dress code which we followed but the people around us did not wearing ripped jeans and white under shirts. Other then that the experience was pleasant.
We went for an early dinner on New Year's Day. The place was very busy, with a crowd waiting for their tables to be available. Not too long a wait. Seemed like the party from the night before was still going strong. Loud music from the bar area - DJ playing too loud. Music was a bit too aggressive to be a good complement to dinner. Went upstairs and still too loud to be able to have a conversation at the table. Service was slow; our waitress was doing her best but was clearly stretched and stressed. I had ribs, fried okra, potato salad. The ribs were just okay, the okra was good, the potato salad was very good. Ordered a bourbon old fashioned and received rye instead. Place was so busy there was no opportunity to get that fixed. All in all, a pretty sad experience. I'd say January 1 might not be a typical day at Delta's but it really should have been a lot better.
New Years Day Brunch was a extremely tasty. We traveled more than 80 minutes because we had been dying to try. The wait was a bit slow, but the place was packed. Staff was very professional, we'll trained, courteous and attentive. As I said the food was great, 95 cent Mimosas and great music. Delta staff called prior to our visit to confirm our reservation due to the high bookings. We were/are very impressed and we're not disappointed. Delta's exceeded all our expectations in food, service and ambiance! We can't wait to go back and bring family and friends!!! We loved it 💕
The server was outstanding, but I rated them lower because it was 5 degrees outside and my party arrived a little before 12:00 noon and the door was locked and NO VALET parking at all on New Year’s Day. So we had to park about 2 blocks away and walk back in 5 degree weather. We were seated in the banquets on the ground floor which definitely showed their wear and tear. Huge open cracks in the leather seats. This place stays busy but it looks like they don’t put the money back into the business.
Food was delicious as per usual however our waiter was "snippy" and seemed to have a bit of an attitude. We thought it was due to a request we made after a drink wasn't done correctly but patrons who arrived after us cited the same issue and actually requested another waiter. He eventually "warmed up" and was pleasant and engaging the rest of the evening but it initially put a slight damper on the experience. That aside the live band was excellent and made for great ambiance.
A couple of girlfriends and I attended for a few Bdays on a Saturday night. We had a great time. Calamari and southern dumplings were tasty. I had fried seafood medley. Very fresh and tasty. Sweet and attentive service-he brought ice cream with candles to our bday ladies. Would def attend again. Only concerns-Seating too close to the waiters station and band was too loud. We were upstairs and had to scream to converse.
But overall, I had a great time. DJ came on at 11 was good!
This is my second visit to Deltas and I was again very pleased with the food, the ambience and the service. The restaurant offers a menu with a southern slant in a very comfortable and cozy setting in which you are not aware of how large the restaurant actually is. The jazz entertainment start fairly, around 7 PM, and is a very nice complement to the food. We had catfish with collard greens and pecan crusted salmon with candied yams followed by cheese cake. The food is very tasty and well prepared. The only negative is parking. They and Frog and Peach share and expensive valet - $15 for 3 hours. Street parking is difficult to find but within 2 blocks there is a parking ramp. Just plan ahead for that and make reservations - the place is packed.
Me and my wife made reservations for 9:30pm. When we got inside I noticed the African-American artwork and jazz artist paintings around the foyer inside. There where several booths to the back that look group friendly or a nice date night could be done as well. Our waiter was great and the food came out promptly and hot, the souls food was seasoned perfectly. I had the fried chicken(white meat), while my wife had the seasonal salad and catfish nuggets. The drinks tasted great(not watered down) I had a Stoli Moscow Mule, wife had Tito’s Dirty Martini. Even with the bad weather there was a great crowd enjoying themselves on a Friday night. I will be coming back and recommending Delta’s to all my friends.
After dropping my friend off at the door because we had a reservation, I went to park my car. After driving around for almost 20 minutes looking for parking, I had to spend 15 dollars for valet parking. Then when I finally got inside I was told I had to pay a cover charge to get in. I told the front person that I had a reservation and my friend was already seated upstairs, he barraged me with about 50 questions as if I wasn’t telling the truth. Eventually he let me go upstairs, and the rest of the night went off without a hitch. Food was great, and our waiter was great as well. They also had live
Music which was fun.
The ambiance is great in this soul food restaurant. The food is a bit pricey, however it is tasty and the service is excellent. The restaurant is well maintained. This is a nice place to relax, conversate, and enjoy the company you are with. The music is enjoyable as well.
There were some hiccups with the orders and the food was slow to be served. With that said, the wait staff and manager made every attempt to right the wrongs. Overall I would return. The food, ambiance, and DJ were great compensatory factors. Valet service is helpful too if you're looking to pay $15. 🍾🥂
Something out of a movie! Each area throughout has its own classy/ trendy vibe. The food does not need a drop of seasoning just dig right on in and enjoy every bite! The staff is A1, location is perfect and i live in Philly and have no problem taking that 1 1/2 hour ride for a 2 hour dinner date there. I ALWAYS praise Delta's to the point you would think i had stock in the business. That band tho..........they are the TRUTH and it made my date's first experience there beyond memorable! I've made up my mind that at least 1 thursday EVERY MONTH that i make it my business to be there! Just know that all the way in Philly you guys have a promoter!
This place is lively during the weekends because of the live bands. Even though I had a reservation, it took a while to seat the two of us. It's a small place, but super popular. The food was on point, unfortunately my particular catfish was super salty. Everything else was fantastic. Would love to try the catfish and their food again. Collard greens were to die for. Hush puppies and fried okra were awesome.
Service was a little lacking, but to be expected when there are so many people. The waiter was super nice about the catfish and offered to have it remade but I was more than happy to just eat the sides. The Delta's tastin appetizer is HUGE. I got full just eating that. All in all, would love to go there again.
Unfortunately, the food was just off. Four of us ordered the fried chicken which was over fried, hard and tasteless. The collard green dip was tasty, but too cheesy. The short ribs were the best of the night, although they were too fatty. And our waiter looked like he hadn't showered in a few days.
