The Green Room at the Hotel du Pont Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated our 24th anniversary, started with a cocktail at the lobby bar, then into the Green Room for dinner. Everything was perfect, the service was on point and genuine, food beautifully presented, cooks perfectly and delicious. The beauty of this room made for an experience even greater than we anticipated.
Buffet tables were messy, and serving utensils had to be shared among platters. We waited over an hour for our entrees, and they had been held too long in the kitchen. Most of our food was marginal. It was not attractive or palatable. The dining room was not busy, but our server excused the service by telling us there was a big table that needed to be served before us. Patrons were dressed in tee shirts and jeans. I remember the Sunday brunch when it was classy, delicious, and people came to dine. My daughter met a person dressed in pajamas in the ladies room who asked her for money. I am sad to say The Green Room is not what it once was. I will not go back.
Beautiful room, with gorgeous details--airy, high ceilings, great windows and lovely table settings----not-to-be missed ambiance. Piano player during dinner (at least on Friday nights) which does not overwhelm conversation--while this may be perceived as an old fashioned venue, the food is extremely good and carefully prepared and the elegant, but warm setting is a return to civilized dining at its best. The food is NOT an afterthought--we had an absolutely marvelous, first rate veal porterhouse, cooked to medium rare perfection, and my dining partner had outstanding lamb chops, also carefully prepared. The starter salad was made with fresh, nicely presented greens and dressed carefully--I had the smoked salmon appetizer, which while straight-forward, is a good example how simple dishes can be prepared in outstanding ways. The wine list is fairly priced with some nice 1/2 bottles and decent wines by the glass, plus a very nice selection of full sized offerings.
The service was a bit disjointed, but not bad--just not up to the level of the rooms beauty and the quality of the food. This a restaurant that is probably an afterthought for many, but if you want elegance and great food, you should give this a try.
Hostess was unpleasant needs to be taught how to greet people at a fine dinning restaurant!
( if a guest asks to be seated at a table next to the one they had been allocated when that tables not reserved this should be offered with a smile not told you can go to our snack bar if you like)
Waitress was far too busy and again needs to be taught how to talk to people and be attentive to their needs. At $38 for Brunch expected much more. Food was OK but sadly the service was very poor won't be returning and wouldn't recommend.
Don't like to complain but this was definitely a bad experience and other diners were having similar experiences. Sadly it is management not training their staff correctly and not having a head waiter on duty something you would expect at this establishment!
The Green Room makes you feel you are in Vienna, rather than Delaware. Our server lady did everything perfectly, professionally. Salmon was perfect. Huge wine list and a small but smart selection of draft beers. Already recommended the Green Room to several co-workers.
Many years ago I lived about 20 minutes from The Hotel Dupont.
It was elegant & still is.
The Green room for lunch is fabulous.
Menu tough to choose 1 dish over an another
I had the lobster roll.
My friend had the chicken casear..both dishes terrific.
Just looking at the people, the ceiling which is amazing & entire hotel takes you back to another time
Very nice for any meal...lovely place always was
We have never been here before, so we decided to try it out for our anniversary. The atmosphere was wonderful and we had a live piano player throughout our dinner. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and the food was superb. It was pricey but it is expected in this type of establishment.
My fiancé and I went here to celebrate our two-month anniversary of our proposal. We have been to a lot of nice restaurants yet this was one of the finest restaurants Ive ever been to. The food was delicious, the atmosphere is exquisite and the service was the best I've ever had. The manager along with every waiter we're beyond attentive and made the night so enjoyable. We especially enjoyed talking with the manager whose wife also works there. It was just wonderful learning about how the two met and how much they enjoy working at the hotel. In addition, our waiter was so lovely and warm and made our night so special. I also need to comment on how delicious the three carrot bisque soup was. Every serving made my mouth melt but the soup was to die for. At the end they brought a pice of chocolate mousse pie with a candle to help us celebrate. That was the icing on the cake!! If you want impeccable service, delicious food and a romantic quaint atmosphere, you will get all three here and leave with wonderful memories as well!!
My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Green Room. We hadn't been in nearkt 15 years and we're pleasantly surprised to have the same, very helpful, waiter. The food was good but it was the ambiance and memories that made it such a nice evening.
We had a great dinner at the Green Room. The food was excellent and the service was beyond compare. The wait staff was professional yet friendly, and the tempo of the service was perfect. The ambience was top notch and we enjoyed the live piano music, which was at just the right sound level. It was the perfect restaurant for a special occasion and we enjoyed every minute.
Very good food, excellent service, and an ambience that reminds one of the old world and cannot be matched by the new. For 3 decades it has been a favorite meeting place for my brother from Baltimore, for my older cousin from DC and for me from Philadelphia. Cannot beat it for an elegant and leisurely weekday lunch.
We enjoyed a delightful romantic birthday dinner on Saturday night. Everyone was very accommodating the service was great and the food delicious. The crab cake appetizer was wonderful 100% crab meat. The grilled octopus, salmon and monk fish were properly prepared, not over cooked. The presentations were simple and clean. To enjoy a meal in such a historic room was a conversation all on its own. We are looking forward our return trip To the hotel and to the Green room.
We had an outstanding evening dining in the Green Room celebrating a special occasion. The service was impeccable. The dining room is absolutely gorgeous and the tables are thoughtfully placed so conversations are private. On the Friday night we went, lovely live piano music was played. The menu is seasonal and plates are beautifully presented.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at the fabled Green Room with its thick oak paneling, high coffered beam ceiling, rich draperies, huge bronze chandeliers, comfortable chairs, and secluded dining where you could actually have private conversations far from the madding crowd. The wines were little short of exceptional, not surprising given that they have a 3,000 bottle cellar which probably dates from the time when Mr. Dupont bought 100,000 bottles of wine prior to prohibition. Where else can you get a magnificent glass of old Saint-Julian wine for an expensive price? The Sauternes and ports were equally diverse, and unusual, with my wife and I opting for a rare 1965 port that tasted of smoke and fire. The service was quick, professional, and impeccable and there even was Maitre d'Hotel who actually was good at his job. The dinner and dessert, while memorable, were unfortunately not in the same class as the wines and overall ambiance of the dinner. I suggest that whoever manages the Green Room hire the chef at the nearby Krazy Kat's (at the Inn at Montchanin Village) without delay.
One should not leave dinner hungry after ordering an appetizer and main course. In addition our table was swarming with fruit flies surrounding the flower center piece and our wine. I complained to the waitrsss about the small portions and she just giggled. Would absolutely never recommend this place especially for the price.
Hosted a brunch for my daughter's in-laws and they were very impressed with the food and décor of this lovely hotel restaurant. The hotel has retained all of its old-world charm as Delaware is the 1st state and has many historical locations.
The ONLY downside was the service, not horrible, but just a tad bit funky. A little slow and not really knowledgeable. I have been noticing this downward trend for a while now with most restaurants. I believe service personnel are underpaid and therefore it is difficult to get quality servers when the pay is so low.
Anyway, the food is excellent (brunch is buffet) with many tasty options.
Easter brunch with the family. Easter bunny made an appearance. Decorated with beautiful Easter displays. Food for brunch, unfortunately we had the early seating. Hard to eat certain things at 10 in the morning Could have had a little less children's foods and a little more breakfast adult dishes for the price. Nice we were not packed in like sardines.
The excellent food is nicely complemented by the ambiance and the service. And the pastries/deserts are equally noteworthy. The overall value makes the trip worthwhile. The Green Room doesn't need to hype itself ... and doesn't try to live on its past reputation. It truly earns it every time.
