The Green Room at the Hotel du Pont Ratings and Reviews
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.
My sister and I came for dinner during restaurant week.Great service,. food & ambiance. I had the short ribs and my sister had the duck confit. Both cooked to perfection. My water glass never got past half full. And the bonus of the evening was the piano player playing old standards. The Green Room never disappoints! Bravo!
A group of friends got together for a ladies night out to take advantage of restaurant week. What a fabulous experience! Everyone was nice (I'll be honest I was worried it might be a bit stuffy - but not at all), the food was delicious from the rolls to dessert and everything in between. Our waitress was just the right balance of attentive. I would definitely go back.
Went to the Green Room for Wilmington Restaurant Week. We had the short ribs, absolutely fork tender. The portion was large and delicious. The tart for dessert was light and tasty, a good ending for a heavy meal. This year the restaurant listed wine pairings for each dish with a price of $8.00 for any of the recommended wines, a reasonable price. We will return again for another restaurant week meal.
My daughter-in-law and I had a great lunch prior to the show at the DuPont Theatre. I enjoy taking my grandchildren there too. It is good food, great ambience and easy to walk to the show in the same building, rather than drive from elsewhere and being concerned about time and parking!
Our lunch was for a colleague who has taken a new job. It was a great meal! We enjoyed being able to dine and talk, without a lot of interruption or noise. The Hotel is beautiful and hopefully will remain a great place for special and "non" special occasions.
Sunday dinner has a prix fix menu that afforded a good selection for all palates. Early seating on a Sunday and we were only ones there. When we should have received full attention of wait staff, we instead had to look around for them to fill water and clear plates. Only bad thing I have to say about the meal. Food was delicious and wine selection was exceptional. We will be trying a Saturday night with a large group within the next month and look forward to the meal. Hopefully, wait staff will have their 'A' game on.
Food was good--had horrible service. The lady attending the coat room even asked our server to come over because she notices how bad service was. I had to chase the waiter down to get more coffee. Came here for a special occasion but overall it was just "meh."
My husband and I enjoy fine dining. We are used to exceptional service. Unfortunately that's not what occurred.
We were only getting seated when our Asian waiter,Quickly offered us water.Then without taking a breath. Do u want wine or a cocktail. It was extremely disturbing. The wine menu hadn't even been given to us.
Once we decided on which wine we wanted, it came promptly, but the pour was terrible. Dripped down the glass onto the table cloth. Amateur.
Menu wasn't explained. The right side of the menu apparently was a price fixed, but didn't make it clear, at all.
My husband meal was very good, but potatoes were cold. He won't complain. My monk fish had a thick crust on it. Which didn't make it for tender.
The other sweet young lady who brought our food was wonderful.
Dinner is made by a great server, expecially in a restaurant of this caliber. I was extremely disappointed.
When we left, I made mention to the hotel manager at check out. She only shrugged her shoulders. It makes me think that service is not a priority.
The bar tender never showed up that evening (!!!) so there were no cocktails other than what the waitress put together, she explained. The Caesar salad was watery, tired and had stale croutons - we think it had been made hours before and from old lettuce. The rolls were reheated in the microwave. The main course (filet with crab meat) was ok, but the advertised crabmeat was about 1 T. worth, and the hollandaise tasted like it was instant. What a disappointment our meal was and how sad that this fine old restaurant seems to be stumbling so.
