Excellent food and service as usual!
My husband and I absolutely LOVE this place! It’s a real neighborhood gem and I can guarantee you couldn’t find a better restaurant in nearby Philly or West Chester, where there are plenty of options. SERIOUSLY
Exceptional as always! Thank you!
This is Hockessin’s greatest secret - a world class dining experience. Been here many times and never disappointed. This is a must do if you are looking for finest dining at its best!
Excellent service and excellent food. The tastes are phenomenal! Our favorite restaurant by far and this was our third visit.
The root vegetable bisque was exquisite! The service was excellent Unfortunately , truck noise from Rt. 41 was unavoidable, but we were happy to be able to sit outside.
We ate outside on the porch where it was quiet. They seem to be aware of all the COVID dangers and have responded appropriately. The menu is shortened, but remains very interesting. The egg is a must have!
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner there on a Saturday night. The food was extremely good and the service was fantastic. I had the Cod which was cooked to perfection with a buttery taste. My wife had the pork chop special. Her chop was large, meaty and delicious. I would highly recommend this establishment.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.Anxious to return.
Wonderful food, ambiance and service! We had a great dinner celebrating a birthday. The lamb neck special was amazing.
Fabulous food and fun evening out. Never disappointed.
The House of William and Merry is a hidden gem!! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary dinner and this was a meal that we will never forget! Everything from the service, the food, and the ambiance was top notch! No critiques and no need for improvement. It was the perfect experience and we could not have asked for a better place to celebrate! We are already looking forward to planning our next trip!
Both the meal and the service were excellent. Everyone from the owners, to the kitchen and the servers were knowledgeable, articulate and friendly. The foie gras, the pig's head ravioli, rainbow trout, Icelandic cod were cooked to perfection. They looked great on the plate and tasted even better.
Dined outside on the side porch which we had to ourselves after the other 2 tables left. Guava-tini was delish. The deviled eggs and fresh salad were good starters. The pork bowl was the best- avocado tempura, mushrooms, Brussel sprouts. My husband said it was the best cheeseburger he's had. Lovely wine by the glass from their Italian vineyards. Love the way the chef delivers exceptional meals consistently.
It was great!
Delicious French bistro food. Loved the trout and apps. Presentation is beautiful. The ice cream is also wonderful! Lovely waitress. Delightful evening.
Amazing food, Amazing service not 1 single complaint. 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
House of William and Merry is one of the best restaurants in the state. The food is amazingly delicious, a great and varied wine and cocktail menu, and the service is always impeccable. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough.
It was our first time there and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Wonderful as always. Favorite restaurant in DE. Loved the cheeseburger and the fries are the best. Always attentive service.
Everything is so artfully and mindfully crafted together. You must order the meal exactly how it comes or you devalue the craft, and honestly, you wouldn’t wanna change anything. Even if you don’t like the ingredients, you will love the meal.
Word of mouth led us here and what a great gem it was! Was staying in downtown Wilmington and was worth the little drive. The scallops were delicious!
So great to be back!!!!! Outstanding as always. Our servers were wonderful. The chopped salad shared with an extra egg was the perfect size:). My scallop entree was delicious as was my husband’s duck. Thanks so much!!! Missed you all
Three of us went to House of William and Merry for dinner on Friday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. Even though the menu is small, there were multiple options that sounded great and we ordered many of them, including all of the specials. Everything was fantastic, especially the foie gras appetizer and the duck breast and scallop entrees - all with fabulous and well-balanced flavors and seasonings, that still allowed the quality ingredients remain the focus. Not inexpensive, but a memorable and delicious meal to be sure. The service was friendly and just the right level of formality. The restaurant was uber-clean and tables were widely-spaced. We will be back soon!
We loved our meal here! We were out celebrating and the host and our server were very accommodating. The courses were perfectly spaced out, drinks were DELICIOUS. The specials were fantastic, we loved everything about it. Will definitely be back here soon.
Great food for a special date night. Great service too!
