Outstanding food and very good service. How this restaurant is not filled every night is a big mystery. The best kept secret in post dupont wilmington.

Despite there being exactly 6 people in the (huge) dining room, we waited for over 45 minutes for our food. When it finally arrived, my burger, which was supposed to be medium, was well-done (no surprise, since it took so long), and my husband's chicken was tiny, and seemed slightly under-cooked. The bill was in direct relation to the length of time we were there. Not worth it at all.

The Green Room has fallen off from its historical pinnacle for fine dining. It is still the best dining room in 250 miles but the management is sub par. When my wife went to use the restroom, the door was locked with a combination code and she had to go to the front desk like you’d do a a flea bitten gas station. Unbelievable and sorry excuse for a fine dining experience. The menu is still pricey however. Maybe they could afford an attendant ?

We have visited the Green Room on a number of occasions previously and always enjoyed it. The atmosphere at the Green Room is easily the most elegant in Delaware. We also loved the piano playing on a relaxing Saturday evening. The food, however, was not up to Green Room standards. My mom's salmon was dry (admittedly she should have sent to back). My wife's scallops had bits of sand in them - very gritty. (She should have sent it back as well.) Also the veggies that came with it looked like frozen veggies one would buy at a grocery store (e.g. Green Giant). My tuna was very good, though. But even then it wasn't worth the $40 it cost. I was also surprised that their ice cream selection is very plain - no fancy gelato or anything like that. (It was probably Bryers.)

In summary, since our experiences there have always been positive in the past, I'm sure we will go again. I just hope this was a one-off bad night and not a trend of what's to come.

The asparagus and green onion soup was to die for. The rohan duck with reduction was a delight, and the orange-rum glazed scallops were wonderful. Their specialty martinis are sumptuous and warming. The ambience is quiet, reserved, with vaulted ceilings and a piano player in the immediate area playing quiet, jazzy tunes. Efficient valet parking in front. Pricey, but this place IS worth it, as many very expensive restaurants so often are not. You will feel every dollar was wisely spent there.

We went to the Hotel Dupont for brunch years ago and enjoyed it very much. My husband said he'd like to go again for his birthday this year. While the Green Room is just as beautiful and elegant as it was then, the brunch was fairly lackluster. It consisted of a mismatched collection of random foods on a buffet followed by a choice of one entree from a list of six. We had the Classic Eggs Benedict and while it was fine, it wasn't anything special. The hollandaise was quite bland. The best part was the beautiful dessert buffet which, weirdly, was set up in the entrance next to the hostess station. It was quite a spread of gorgeous little pastries, cakes and cookies that looked like pieces of art. The table service was very uneven. Although the room was only about one-quarter full, we had to flag down servers to get coffee and water refills. At over $100 including tip for brunch for two, we had expected better.

I made a reservation for dinner to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The place and staff were wonderful, made extra special by our server, Ewelina. She was very accommodating and made suggestions on the food and wine. She even gave us some almond macarons to take home for the kids. The food were delicious and fresh, which my wife and I truly enjoyed. It was an unforgettable experience! We’ll definitely come back!

Our cocktails came from the bar wrong. We bit our tounges since it was date night sans our 3 y/o. First course was very good (salad and soup) but mains were a strong “meh”. Ordered dessert which was also fine. Service was attentive but food was really lacking. There is better fine dining in the region.

Waitress was horrible. We had to look for her twice. We ask her for our entrees to be served and she responded "Wait awhile and enjoy the buffet". We had the buffet and were ready for the main course. It was not her job or duty to tell us to wait awhile. While I do not believe she was being rude however her behavior and demeanor were inappropriate and could use some improvement.

The food was cold.

Normally one of our favorite spots....maybe just a bad night...service was mediocre with only 6 other tables occupied. We were a party of six and three times we were told what we wanted was not available (items that were listed on the menu...Heineken beer, our wine selection and a specialty dessert drink! My salad was taken with half on it...I was turned, talking to my husband. A lot of confusion delivering the food....our waiter was quite kind and polite!
