The Green Room at the Hotel du Pont Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I expected an old world decor and service and we got it. It is a beautiful room from the early 1900's. The sevice was second to none. Our waitress, Holly was very helpful with the menu. The food was brought out in a timely fashion without running into each other. My wife had the filet and I the short ribs and both were brought out in a beautiful presentation. We will be back.
The Green Room is a favorite for us and we'll miss it when the hotel changes hands. I love its elegant ambiance and live music is a plus. The service is usually excellent, but this time it was average. I hope the new owners keep the special nature of this restaurant.
Definitely one of those things you should do in downtown Wilmington. Elegance, history, fine dining - five star all the way. Perfect for lunch or dinner, and even better before or after a show,. Allow at least a couple hours before so you aren't rushed with enjoying the full experience! And be sure to save room for their scrumptious signature macaroons!
Met friends for a birthday celebration, their first visit, beautiful setting and ambience.
Personally, I prefer a plated brunch, ordering off a menu;
at least an option, not everyone likes buffets. Some offerings look tired after a while. Plus, I prefer my food hot, not warm.
Otherwise, a pleasant visit.
I was looking forward to returning to the Green Room after a long absence and I was very disappointed. My first glass of wine was the bottom of the bottle and not well preserved; the glass was replaced with a second wine. Three of us had the strip steak and two steaks were over done; we ordered medium rare and they came medium at best. I returned line and it took nearly 15 minutes to be redone. When my plate was returned, the original food was on it which was cold by then. Service was good, food was not.
There are few places anywhere with the historic pedigree and elegant ambiance of this magnificent facility. The décor, architecture, space, quiet piano music . . . all combine to make a wonderful dining experience. The service was good, friendly and thorough but it was clear that an additional hand or two would have made a major difference. Every member of the staff appeared to be interested, friendly and motivated but were just tasked with a few too many patrons. The food was good but not exceptional. All told, a satisfactory dining experience in extraordinary surroundings with desirable ambiance . . . a perfect place to mark an occasion but not the right choice if one's interest is primarily in exceptional food.
The experience was marvelous. The opulent, historic decor accompanied by discreet decorations and piano music provided the background. The meal was creative (venison) and most enjoyable. Service was pleasant and caring. The experience was like old-world dining in a historical room. It went beyond our expectations.
The restaurant is exquisite and heightened by the Christmas decorations. Live piano music also a plus. The food itself was adequate but not very good value for money. $38.00 for cod and $32.00 for salmon. Drinks were also small and expensive. $15.00 for a glass of Chardonnay and $14.00 for a top shelf martini.
Sunday nights at the hotel DuPont are the best kept secret in Wilmington. I highly recommend the Sunday night 3 course dinner. I don't know if the price fluctuates but it was 3 courses for $35. It was delicious. The green room is lovely especially during the holidays. And the best part is the peaceful atmosphere- you can actually have a conversation. And the famous hotel cookies come with your bill.
Impressive elegant decor with exceptionally well prepared food either for breakfast, Sunday brunch or dinner. Service is attentive to every need in a warm atmosphere . Dishes are prepared fresh and with creativity with a nice menu selection . The breathtaking high ceiling with decorations, will transport you to another century reminiscent of old established European elegance and refinement. The Green Room is one of the three most elegant dining rooms we have ever come across and the experience we had was exceptional . We are well traveled and would challenge sny reader to identify a more beautiful and elegant dining room than the Green Room at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington Delaware. Bon appetit!
This is the third time we have experienced issues with the Green Room on a day of a show. We elected not to do the buffet, which seemed to cause an issue. It appeared that ordering from the menu means extra time. I mentioned that I would like coffee after our meal and before we were near to finishing we were brought a plate of cookies, which we felt meant, you are finished. Then, after a long while the server came to collect the plates and asked if we wanted more. Very confusing message for us. It is not what I have experience before, but I am concerned that this is the third time I have experienced this. Going to give it one more try before the next event.
This was a positive experience with great service, ambiance,and high quality food, but I was very disappointed in the limited menu. There were only 4 potential entrees. I seldom order steak when I dine out because I can get that at home, but chose it as the only possibility I cared for from the menu. That being said, the steak was excellent and prepared perfectly.
The overall experience was disappointing. What was once a place one would be thrilled to go, I found the experience to be nothing like it was only a few years ago. For the entire first hour, we were the only couple there, and then only one other couple came in before we left. The room was dark , but one of the draperies was torn which took away from the ambiance. The food was OK.
It's the Green Room- what else needs to be said? It is still elegant beyond any other setting in the city. If you want formal, with attention to detail, and service that is attentive but not overbearing, this is the place. We participated in the Delaware Dines Out program and it was worth every penny. We added a glass of champagne to the prix fix menu for a reasonable amount. I was curious as to how the food would be, as my family had attended the Mother's Day brunch two years ago. Then, the food was mundane and really quite boring. For DDO, the menu was top notch. The only less than perfect aspect of the meal is the funky dinner plates that are used for the main course. They are very oddly shaped - very modern - and don't fit the elegance of the room. Placing a knife or fork on the rim of the plate was impossible.Overall, it is THE Green Room and lived up to our expectations.
We decided to return after a long absence. Last experience not pleasant. Delighted with the Dining Out Delaware 3 course price fixe menu. Superb selections all done with perfection. Our server, Tim, made the evening especially memorable. We will certainly return.
The kitchen/Waiter forgot one order of steak entre which was noted but never received.
The seafoodtable was out of salmon,the shrimp were very tiny canned shrimp, a slim offering of food , service was good but needs improvement. The main course was excellent
Friends told us that when visiting Wilmington, The Green Room was the place to dine just to see the spectacular room. They were right, but not only is the room spectacular but the food is outstanding, also. The entire experience from the room to the food to the service was well worth the trip to downtown Wilmington.
It was perfect for our birthday brunch celebration. We cannot say enough about the thoughtful and attentive service. Our food was delicious, we enjoyed the variety of selections, and of course, the traditional macaroons for which they famous.
The pianist was wonderful, décor elegant, ambience serene....
We went on Sunday night and had the Sunday dinner menu. There was one server who opened the wine away from the table. It was white wine and it was not cold at service. He often neglected to put the bottle in the ice bucket. We got up repeatedly to put it in ourselves, and to pour for ourselves. My family's food was delicious, they say. But my soup and the crab meat in it were cold, and my chicken was dry and tough. Dessert was delicious. Doubtful we'll go back, but definitely not on a Sunday.
