The Green Room at HOTEL DU PONT Ratings and Reviews
At first we were skeptical that the food will be good because the bread was cold and the spinach salad was ordinary.
Then the duck trio and scallop/shrimps (No prawns available. Substituted with shrimps for the same price of prawns.) were creative and flavorful. The dessert, Mandarin Soufflé Glacé, was refreshing and light.
The Sunday dinner menu before the show at the Playhouse was limited. It only had 4 entrees and the rest sandwiches and appetizers. The salmon was good but extremely salty and hard to finish. The service was horrible. The waiter did not have answers to any of our questions except the soup du jour. He did not know the vegetarian special for the evening, did not know what cheeses were on the cheese tray, did not know the vegetable of the day that came with the entrees. He kept going back to get the answers but acted like it was a bother. He has been there for many years and this is not acceptable in such a fine hotel and restaurant. Portion sizes were ok but not great. Along with the salmon came a few very skinny asparagus and a plateful of potatoes (which we don't eat). We never saw him during our meal and had to flag him down to get our bill. It will be a long time before we go back to the Green Room.
This is the sort of brunch experience one hopes for but seldom finds. A beautiful space, excellent service, not noisy (even though there was a live piano), a extremely wide variety of food from breakfast standard, to unusual hors d'oeuvres and pastries, an omelet station and carved roast beef. Also included was either a mimosa or a bloody mary and "bottomless" fruit juice. At $38. per person, a real bargain as well. We plan to return even though we live in Philadelphia.
Four of us went to the Green Room 2 hours before the show in the Hotel. Service started out well, with quick, but not rushed, orders, first course and main course. Then it was all downhill as we sat with finished plates for a long while before they were picked. Two of us had the Fixed Price Theatre special and we received our deserts quickly, even before the others had ordered theirs. Again, a long wait to order deserts and coffees, another long wait to receive the other deserts and some, but not all the coffees. Trying to get people's attention was arduous, but we finally received the missing coffee and tea. You guessed it! Another long wait to get the bill! I don't understand this, particularly given that the dinning room was only 50-60% filled!
I mentioned this to the Matre d' as we left, and she said all the right things, but I wonder if she took it anywhere. Hence, this review!
The menu was limited. Some really enjoyed their meals some did not. 3 people had the braised short ribs, and although quite tasty - very tough and hard to eat.
The service was nothing exceptional - used to be they would fold your napkin when you left the table, crumb your place setting - none of those touches were there.
Husband was served a bottle of beer that was flat and past its use by date.
The first maitre d was quite snobby and rude. My salmon was overcooked.
not really worth it.
Took my parents here for Sunday Brunch and it was good, not great. They used to have a great omlette station wth lobster, crab, and all other kinds of great ingredients, but this time, the selection wasnt the best (ham, onion, peppers, mushrooms, cheese). Everything else they had put was vety nice. However, the macaroons they make here are INCREDIBLE! Im not joking, you have to save some room if you go for a meal. Just try not to eat a dozen by yourself...you'll know what I mean when you eat one. Enjoy!
We had an enjoyable Easter dinner at this venerable restaurant. A gorgeous, elegant, and timeless dining room along with excellent food and service make for a memorable experience.
The dishes are classics and well prepared. A nice venue for a special occasion and more formal meal.
We went to the Green Room for Valentine's Day. It was a prix-fixe menu. I had been looking forward to it for weeks! We were seated at a lovely table but had to wait at least 15 min before being greeted by a server. We were only greeted after my husband went to the hostess to let her know we didn't have a server. We ordered a bottle of champagne and it wasn't chilled- I was tempted to put an ice cube in it. My entree (duck breast) was good, but for the price of the meal - I've had a lot better. The first two courses were just okay and the bread wasn't average. The dessert wasn't worth eating. Having looked forward to this special night out for weeks, I was really disappointed. Of course the room is so beautiful. The room well outshined the food and service experience.
For two wonderful hours we lived like the 1%. Service was excellent, friendly servers, piano music, delicious and beautiful food. They even brought a pillow to support my elderly mother's back. We were able to get menus with no prices so our guests would feel comfortable ordering anything they chose. Simply a great experience!
Service is always wonderful, along with the valet parking. The room is gorgeous. The food however has dramatically slipped. It's an exciting price fixe menu (citrus themed), but failed to wow on all counts. Disappointing. There's many options at the $280 for two price point (without booze but with tip) so we won't be back. Bummer too, because a few months ago, we had a wonderful meal here.
We realize that we went the day after the huge blizzard/snow storm for Sunday Brunch. And we acknowledge that they may not have had food delivered for Sunday, but...we felt that the buffet was not the quality and selection we were used to at say, Hershey Hotel or William Penn Inn, which is what we were expecting. If food shortage was the case then the $38 pp that we paid was way over priced. They had smoked fish but no bagels or cream cheese to go along with it. The ingredients for the omelet station were minimal. So, that said, we probably will not go back to the Green Room at the Hotel DuPont for Brunch. Maybe for dinner sometime....The room itself is very pretty but needs some refurbishing, especially the wood trim around the room and the balcony.
Great first anniversary dinner at the Green Room. We were married one year ago in the Gold Ballroom and wanted to come back and experience the hotel again for our anniversary. Service is something you will only experience there. Impeccable. You'll never find waiters/hosts that treat you with such respect and care other than at the DuPont. Very quiet on Sunday nights, but so romantic. Food was cooked perfectly. Ambiance is like stepping back in time, (In a really good/cool way). GO. EAT. EXPERIENCE!
Outstanding ambiance in this classy, upscale dining room in the famous Hotel DuPont. Wonderful architecture and interior design helps foster an inviting atmosphere. Our party of three went for a late lunch, so it was a quiet room at that time. Service was excellent.
