DeL Pez was not very busy when we went, but it took a while for our server to check our table, bring drinks, etc. otherwise the food was great!!!

The service was incredibly slow including ordering, drinks from bar, appetizers, & main course. Fortunately the waitress was familiar with their vegan options that were missing from our menu.

Food was good. Service was good --- when it was there. Our waiter/server seemed super busy. We had to flag him down to get our check; and then hunt him down again to give him our payment.

Overall food and experience was great. The only downside was the wait for drinks from the bar took longer than expected.

We came for brunch to celebrate my son's graduation from WILMU. This was our first time there but definitely no out last. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We live in South Jersey but will gladly cross the river to dine there again.

Food was good, service was a little slow but we were sitting in a remote table. The bar should offer pitchers of Margaritas— took a while to get a round of drinks for our large group.

Had the carnita tacos- very bland. The rest of the group had tacos as well and all agreed they are not as good as they used to be. Drinks were all very good.

Had an amazing experience yesterday, I was able to get a reservation online but arrived a little early they were amazing took us in within a minute. The greeter was very attentive and pleasant. My waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, supper attentive and great energy. The food was amazing started with the pez guacamole it was amazing, I’m in love 😍! Then we all had different dishes my husband had the loaded nachos with chicken it was amazing, my dad had the steak fajitas it was outstanding and I had the egg with chorizo ( we attended brunch). The food was outstanding we all had drinks which were very good good from traditional margaritas to beer mimosa perfect. We ended it with a delicious warm and crispy churros. I would like to add all the food was fresh and I recommend this location.

Great service. OK food. Terribly noisy because of the open space,high ceilings and concrete construction. More bar than a restaurant.

Good food! But they need to make sure they have ample towels in the restroooms. When I notified them of missing towels, I was handed a bunch of cocktail napkins!!!

Out waiter was very sweet and kind but the drinks took forever to come!!! Food was okay. Churros were good but the “warm” sauce was gross and cold. Asked for warm sauce and it was still cold. Over all I was disappointed. It wasn’t a busy night and it just wasn’t worth all the hype I had heard about it.

Wait staff was very friendly. Food was excellent. Only issue was that we felt a bit rushed. Our entrees were brought to table very shortly after appetizer. Server left our check on the table without even inquiring about desert, which my wife had planned on ordering.

The food was all pretty good. The crab quesadilla was AMAZING. The mixed drinks were weak & watered down. All the drinks (alcohol & non alcoholic) had way too much ice in them.

I would recommend with the disclaimer that the service is slow and wait staff not very attentive. We waited a long time for our drinks, were never offered a second drink and had to hunt down the waiter for our check. I reserved a high top but when we got to the restaurant, we were told there weren't any available. It's a very large place so we didn't have to wait for a table - we were seated in the very back of the restaurant. Food was ok - the guacamole was the best part. All that being said, it's not terrible - just don't go with high expectations.

I am working my way through the menu and everything is fabulous! Love the 3 salsa, the beer cheese dip, shrimp tacos, shrimp & scallop ceviche - excellent! the short ribs, fabulous!! and the carnitas are cooked to perfection. Thank you Del Pez for my free birthday dessert - a chocolate lava cake! I wish I lived closer I would go every week!

Booked for New Years eve and managed to snag a table for 6 people in a busy time. Service was good and prompt especially considering the time of year. Food came out fairly quickly butt not rushed. The pomegranate Guacamole appetizer was really good !
I recommend the fajita's but all of it came out well
Will be back

Food was awesome, everyone was very happy with their meals...even with the special requests! Our server was great!! We had a large table of 8, so I know things get tricky, but timing of drinks and meals could have been better. 5 drinks came out about 10 minutes before the rest (2 of the drinks had whipped cream which melted by the time the rest of the table had theirs) 4 of the entrees came out at least 10 minutes before the rest of the table. Server told us to go ahead and start eating because they hadn’t played the others yet. :-/

Seated timely, waitstaff was attentive. Very loud, cafeteria-style layout, very difficult to have a conversation. Food was decent, but generic and nothing special. Entrees provided good value, but appetizers and sides were a blatant ripoff - the lettuce from my $5 side salad could fit in my palm. Dinner bill for four was nearly $200, not nearly worth that price...

Nice location for the Gastropoda near Frawley Staduim and other Wilmington Riverfront attractions. Food was very good and nice selection of drinks. Seemed like a good bar scene goin* on as well! Recommended!
