Wonderful! Erika, our server was excellent. Good, as always, superb. This is our favorite restaurant in Delaware.

First visit to The House of William and Merry in a while, and it did not disappoint! The meal was excellent as was the service. The creative menu and high quality choices were perfect and we can only say good things about our evening.
Amazing food, once again. Nothing ever disappoints! I highly suggest ordering the specials - each time we do we are amazed!
We went to The House of William & Merry for a special occassion. The restaurant staff were excellent - friendly and informative. The food and drinks were fantastic, best meal I have had in a long time.
Never a disappointment…our go to place for date night!
Always fantastic and best in town
Fun night with great couple. Food was outstanding. Service? Clark was knowledgeable and attentive. Drinks? Exceptional.
Always a wonderful dining experience by the “Michelangelo of food.”
Beautiful location. The food was great but the portions were small. For the scallops ordered, they should have given 6 scallops instead of four.
We were seated at a nice table for 2 on 1st floor. At the larger table behind us 2 gentlemen were so loud our waitress had to bend over to hear us. My husband and I had a very hard time even conversing with each other due to the 2 gentlemen trying to outdo each other with their loudest laugh. Fortunately a little more than halfway through our meal they left. After that we were comfortable. I love a good lively conversation but this bordered on rude and in appropriate for such a small dining room. Our first time dining out since COVID was a little disappointing, although the meal was beautiful delicious and on point with the best culinary chefs we have had the privilege of experiencing.
Amazing food. Great service.
The food as always was exquisite- staff knowledgeable and had a well balanced interaction.
Always outstanding. Never fails.
Never a disappointment. Great innovative food, attentive service.
It’s our favorite date night place!! Food is outstanding always!!
We enjoyed a birthday dinner at The House of William & Merry. The unique menu offerings to the outstanding service made for a great evening. We particularly enjoy dining on their covered porch,
We love HWM and have ordered to go as well as dining in. Dining in has been for celebrations. As a self-proclaimed foodie that travels the world seeking out great food and drink, you won’t be disappointed with HWM!
Cheese board was impressive. Drinks were excellent. Plating and presentation of all dishes were very beautiful, and tasted amazing.
Great dinners and good starters appropriate for the fine dinning pricing. Very reasonable and tasty specialty drink menu, plus many wines available by the glass. A little tricky for parking when the restaurant is full. May have to wait some for the one and only bathroom. But at least it is clean and modern!
Highly recommend. We like to eat at higher end restaurants at least 2 times a month from New York to Virginia. This is well worth a visit. Food was spectacular and the service was excellent.
We sat out on the porch, food was great and server was great.
The scallops were delicious, but a bit pricey at $41. Drinks were generous in size and alcohol. No salt and pepper on the table. When I asked for it, server brought it, but said that the chef said that the dishes are well seasoned and don't need it!
Wonderful meal and exceptional service.
Fresh ingredients, exciting options, and casual atmosphere. Everything was excellent.
It was everyone’s first time for dinner but a couple of us had been there for lunch.
early reservations because of the nhl hockey draft at 8. so it was quiet. however , as always , food was excellent.
Nice atmosphere and impressive seasonal menu.
Shared few appetizers and they were nicely prepared, would have liked they offer better selection of dessert!
I’m returning to dine there next week. We loved it so much that I want to share it with friends.
Always wonderful and creative food. Never disappoints. Great service and variety in home like setting.
Excellent food and service. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good meal.
Everything was perfect from all staff to food and romantic restaurant made for perfect evening. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Excellent food; it is obvious that a lot of thought, time, and preparation goes into each dish.
I had the rockfish and the PEI mussels. My wife had the scallops. Everything was great! I loved the pairing of the rockfish with fruit salad, which had elements of sweetness and just a bit of spice with the sauces. Outstanding!
The House of William and Merry has a great bar, excellent wait-staff and outstanding dishes. You don't feel pressed for time; in fact, the time between courses is quite leisurely.
We ate upstairs indoors and the setting and silverware was nice. The only negative (and a slight one at that) is that the room was a bit sterile. It needed some color and a sense of intimacy.
We'd highly recommend THOWAM. My acronym sounds like a Pentagon weapon system.
