The Green Room at the Hotel du Pont Ratings and Reviews

The food and service were excellent. There were problems with the drinks as the bartender was not sure how to make some of them although they were rather basic. He apologized (via the waiter) that he did not have onions for the gin gimlets! He also sent out Rose's Lime juice in case either of the people wanted more in their gimlets. Two martinis had been ordered, one came with olives and the other with cucumber. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening.
Beautiful and elegant restaurant.

The food and staff were amazing. Can't wait to go back!!!
The Green Room was a perfect spot to celebrate my daughters graduation from University of Delaware . The staff was attentive to us the meal was fabulous . The menu had a variety of choices to accommodate everyone in our party.

At first we were skeptical that the food will be good because the bread was cold and the spinach salad was ordinary. Then the duck trio and scallop/shrimps (No prawns available. Substituted with shrimps for the same price of prawns.) were creative and flavorful. The dessert, Mandarin Soufflé Glacé, was refreshing and light.
We went for our anniversary and are very pleased with the results. The food was excellent and the service was even more so. It ended up being less expensive than I had expected it to be, too! We will definitely be back!!

The Sunday dinner menu before the show at the Playhouse was limited. It only had 4 entrees and the rest sandwiches and appetizers. The salmon was good but extremely salty and hard to finish. The service was horrible. The waiter did not have answers to any of our questions except the soup du jour. He did not know the vegetarian special for the evening, did not know what cheeses were on the cheese tray, did not know the vegetable of the day that came with the entrees. He kept going back to get the answers but acted like it was a bother. He has been there for many years and this is not acceptable in such a fine hotel and restaurant. Portion sizes were ok but not great. Along with the salmon came a few very skinny asparagus and a plateful of potatoes (which we don't eat). We never saw him during our meal and had to flag him down to get our bill. It will be a long time before we go back to the Green Room.

Pleasantly surprised! The Sunday brunch buffet was lovely. Varied and high quality selection. Omelettes were awesome and so was the perfectly med rare fillet. Hallie our server was great as well! Totally on point, gracious and genuine.
Sunday brunch green room hotel dupont
This is the sort of brunch experience one hopes for but seldom finds. A beautiful space, excellent service, not noisy (even though there was a live piano), a extremely wide variety of food from breakfast standard, to unusual hors d'oeuvres and pastries, an omelet station and carved roast beef. Also included was either a mimosa or a bloody mary and "bottomless" fruit juice. At $38. per person, a real bargain as well. We plan to return even though we live in Philadelphia.

Beautiful room. Perfect for our anniversary. The room was quiet but we went early so perhaps the room is more lively later in the night. Service was outstanding. The food was very good. We both had the duck which I would recommend.

Perfect for brunch before the play. Easy and free parking, which was pointed out to me by staff, very appreciative for that.

Four of us went to the Green Room 2 hours before the show in the Hotel. Service started out well, with quick, but not rushed, orders, first course and main course. Then it was all downhill as we sat with finished plates for a long while before they were picked. Two of us had the Fixed Price Theatre special and we received our deserts quickly, even before the others had ordered theirs. Again, a long wait to order deserts and coffees, another long wait to receive the other deserts and some, but not all the coffees. Trying to get people's attention was arduous, but we finally received the missing coffee and tea. You guessed it! Another long wait to get the bill! I don't understand this, particularly given that the dinning room was only 50-60% filled! I mentioned this to the Matre d' as we left, and she said all the right things, but I wonder if she took it anywhere. Hence, this review!

food was just ok. everything else was great. This is a beautiful dining room. I was disappointed in the food since I have been to the Greene Room for their fabulous Sunday brunch.
Mother's Day Brunch
The food was good but thought it would be more interesting for Mother's day. Dessert table was bland. Hot food limited. The fish and shellfish were good. Service was excellent. Dupont hotel decor seems outdated. Would go back for weekly brunch.
Not what a meal & service used to be.
The menu was limited. Some really enjoyed their meals some did not. 3 people had the braised short ribs, and although quite tasty - very tough and hard to eat. The service was nothing exceptional - used to be they would fold your napkin when you left the table, crumb your place setting - none of those touches were there. Husband was served a bottle of beer that was flat and past its use by date. The first maitre d was quite snobby and rude. My salmon was overcooked. not really worth it.

Always a classy, well served and delicious dining experience!
Hotel DuPont Dining
This is the first time I had dinner at the Hotel DuPont. The dining experience was good but my steak was overcooked and dry. I ordered the "Surf and Turf" and unfortunately could only eat half of it.

We were celebrating our anniversary so we had the chefs tasting menu with the wine pairings. So nicely done! Our waiter took such good care of us and the food (and wines) was delicious.

Many thanks to the restaurant and the chef for preparing a wonderful, special order meal!
Took my parents here for Sunday Brunch and it was good, not great. They used to have a great omlette station wth lobster, crab, and all other kinds of great ingredients, but this time, the selection wasnt the best (ham, onion, peppers, mushrooms, cheese). Everything else they had put was vety nice. However, the macaroons they make here are INCREDIBLE! Im not joking, you have to save some room if you go for a meal. Just try not to eat a dozen by yourself...you'll know what I mean when you eat one. Enjoy!
Continues to be most classy restaurant in Delaware
Fabulous meal. The Green Room is stunning. Reminds you of an Old World dining room from the early 20th Century. Food was phenomenal
Excellent food and excellent service.
We happened to be there for restaurant week so the menu was very limited. However, the meal was terrific.

We had an enjoyable Easter dinner at this venerable restaurant. A gorgeous, elegant, and timeless dining room along with excellent food and service make for a memorable experience. The dishes are classics and well prepared. A nice venue for a special occasion and more formal meal.
Food & payment
The food was very good especially the french onion soup. Unfortunately the restaurant could not process my gift card issued by them. This ruined the experience.

A wonder institution. Had a business dinner here. Service, food and ambiance is unbeatable. The dark paneling and comfortable quiet surroundings add to the feeling that this is a special place.

My mother and I love going to brunch at the hotel! The staff is so friendly and always make sure we are taken care off.
Nowhere in Delaware offers a more elegant dining experience. The food was superb, especially the crab cake appetizer. The service was excellent and we dined while listening to a pianist. It's like going back in time.
My favorite place
I love visiting the Hotel DuPont! Long may it reign over downtown Wilmington. I love the food, staff and the incredible surroundings. I am never disappointed when I eat here.
Disappointed on Valentine's day
We went to the Green Room for Valentine's Day. It was a prix-fixe menu. I had been looking forward to it for weeks! We were seated at a lovely table but had to wait at least 15 min before being greeted by a server. We were only greeted after my husband went to the hostess to let her know we didn't have a server. We ordered a bottle of champagne and it wasn't chilled- I was tempted to put an ice cube in it. My entree (duck breast) was good, but for the price of the meal - I've had a lot better. The first two courses were just okay and the bread wasn't average. The dessert wasn't worth eating. Having looked forward to this special night out for weeks, I was really disappointed. Of course the room is so beautiful. The room well outshined the food and service experience.
wonderful and amazing experience
The space is glorious, the service impeccable, the food great. They were practically empty on a Saturday night at 8 - not sure why, it was great
For two wonderful hours we lived like the 1%. Service was excellent, friendly servers, piano music, delicious and beautiful food. They even brought a pillow to support my elderly mother's back. We were able to get menus with no prices so our guests would feel comfortable ordering anything they chose. Simply a great experience!

Service is always wonderful, along with the valet parking. The room is gorgeous. The food however has dramatically slipped. It's an exciting price fixe menu (citrus themed), but failed to wow on all counts. Disappointing. There's many options at the $280 for two price point (without booze but with tip) so we won't be back. Bummer too, because a few months ago, we had a wonderful meal here.
We realize that we went the day after the huge blizzard/snow storm for Sunday Brunch. And we acknowledge that they may not have had food delivered for Sunday, but...we felt that the buffet was not the quality and selection we were used to at say, Hershey Hotel or William Penn Inn, which is what we were expecting. If food shortage was the case then the $38 pp that we paid was way over priced. They had smoked fish but no bagels or cream cheese to go along with it. The ingredients for the omelet station were minimal. So, that said, we probably will not go back to the Green Room at the Hotel DuPont for Brunch. Maybe for dinner sometime....The room itself is very pretty but needs some refurbishing, especially the wood trim around the room and the balcony.
Great 1st Anniversary!
Great first anniversary dinner at the Green Room. We were married one year ago in the Gold Ballroom and wanted to come back and experience the hotel again for our anniversary. Service is something you will only experience there. Impeccable. You'll never find waiters/hosts that treat you with such respect and care other than at the DuPont. Very quiet on Sunday nights, but so romantic. Food was cooked perfectly. Ambiance is like stepping back in time, (In a really good/cool way). GO. EAT. EXPERIENCE!
A Lovely Afternoon
We had an occassion to mark and chose to do so with a toast over lunch in the Green Room. The food and staff confirmed that we made the perfect choice. We'll never forget our special afternoon!
Excellent food, oozes with ambiance.
The Green Room is spectacular, beautiful and elegant . The food is spectacular. Crab cake appetizers were delicious. Excellent Fillet with artichoke and fingerling potatoes. Loved the house Chardonney. Very good service, especially in the bar area
