Always a favourite. But no pizza? No canelloni? No prime rib? It is a pandemic for sure.
Yes it truly is!! Thank you so much for joining us on one of our last days Catherine! We are hopeful that when we re-open (for the third time) that we will have a fuller menu available for our guests! Thank you so much again and we will hopefully see you again soon. Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Very quiet, perfect for a date or a nice, relaxing evening.
Thank you so much for your review Jacob. We look forward to being busier soon when we open up more, but happy you were able to enjoy a quieter relaxing evening! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager

We are so lucky to have so many loyal fantastic guests like yourselves! It always makes us smile when we see your names pop up on our reservation list! Thank you for all your continued support and a special thank you for your wonderful review! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Fabulous night out for my birthday dinner. Even though diners were spaced out due to Covid protocol there was still great ambiance in the restaurant. We had burgers, beef dip and pasta dishes that were all delicious.
Our server, Chris, was knowledgeable, friendly and came to our table just enough for us to feel welcome and cared for during our visit.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Adele! We were delighted to be able to celebrate with you! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We love all the restaurants in the Charcoal group. Always great food and excellent service. We had a young woman named Samantha wait on us and she was delightful.
Thank you so much for joining us for lunch Debra! We are so lucky to have staff like Samantha who normally works in our sister restaurant Martini's! I have shared your comments with her and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
I have a very stressful job in health care and my husband treated me to a nice dinner. We picked the best place possible, food, atmosphere and service was outstanding. We will be back soon!
Thank you so much for this incredible review. I have shared it with our team. They make me all so proud! We hope to see you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We were disappointed by the lack of menu choices for during the week dining.
Thank you so much for your review. We are doing everything to please our guests right now and we know how popular our Dels pizzas are. Unfortunately during these incredibly difficult times, we have to make some tough decisions, one of them regarding our pizza. We feel our Charcoal/Dels menu that we currently have covers a wide variety of items for our guests to choose from during the week. Hopefully we will be able to open more soon and have our full menu. Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Great meal! The salmon was perfect!
Thank you so much for joining us and for your wonderful review! We look forward to your next visit! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Kevin and Chris took very good care of us Even during this pandemic all precautions were taken. Very enjoyable evening and great food.
Thank you so much for your incredible review Carl! It was our pleasure! We can't wait for you to visit with us again! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Good food, good service.
Thank you so much for your review! We look forward to your next visit with us. Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Food was cold, we were rushed to eat and get out, told multiple times how much time we had left to eat, meanwhile the server was incorrect and I had to remind her twice as to our reservation time and how much time we had left. I understand COVID dining rules, however we weren’t pushing the envelope or trying to bend the rules. We finished our meal on time and left. She actually told us we don’t have time for dessert and coffee LOL when we actually did and ordered it anyways, and still finished on time! There is a way to manage through COVID dining rules and unfortunately this experience was not enjoyable. It actually will make me think twice about rebooking Del’s. 2 days After posting this review I will give credit to the GM at Del’s/Charcoal they called my cell and discussed the issues. Great follow up and customer service. I was impressed on how he dealt with it. Fantastic!
I am so sorry for your experience with us on Thursday Dave. As we try to navigate our way through this new 'norm' we are making some mistakes. We do not ever mean to make anyone feel rushed or unwanted in the restaurant. On top of that, our food standards are much better than being described as 'cold' and should have been addressed that evening. I'm sorry that it was not. I would love to personally invite you back - please reach out to me email@example.com Kevin Blokhuis, General Manager
Ambiance was great even with social distancing. Very clean. Food was hot and tasty. Service was outstanding. Manager made a special visit to the table. Great experience. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and for joining us Saturday night! We look forward to your next visit with us! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Amazing service! Amazing food! Great atmosphere
Thank you so much for the awesome review Jake! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Del's is one of our favourite local restaurants, in addition to the Charcoal and Martini's upstairs. WE have always been impressed by the quality of the meals and service with a smile. Staff congratulated us for our 21st anniversary, complete with bubbly. Covid-19 protocols are being strictly observed, and my wife and I were totally comfortable dining there. Thank you for great service always!
Thank you so much for choosing us for your anniversary celebration! We are so proud of our entire staff here and the efforts they have made to make all our guests feel safe and welcome! Thank you so much for your kind words and amazing review. I have shared this with all of my staff. Thank you again! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
As always the team at Del’s does an incredible job with hospitality, quality of food and especially the service! If you have not there before it’s a must visit in the KW area
Thank you so much again Ron! Our place is made just a little bit more special every time you guys visit! See you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis Dels General Manager

Delicious food, great atmosphere, excellent service!! Want to go back ASAP!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Erin! We want you back ASAP as well! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Our waitress was excellent. Food was great. Thank you for a great dining experience for our 10th anniversary!
Thank you so much for sending us your review! Happy Anniversary! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Great experience and excellent service as always. Only complaint is that they removed the “build your own pasta” option from the menu, which was always our go-to. If there’s no longer a build your own option, bring back the sausage and pepper penne!!!
Thank you so much for your review Rob! We have created a new menu that gives our guests so many 'building blocks' to start if they want to still modify and create their own pasta or pizza! Oh.. and we can make the Sausage and Pepper Penne any time for you as well! You will have to ask for it the next time you are in.. the sausage won't be the same but it will still be delicious! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Delicious food and excellent staff made for an enjoyable evening.
Thank you so much for joining us on Saturday Rachel! Thank you as well for your review! We will see you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We always enjoy coming here to dine - excellent dishes, ambiance and service. Just typing this makes me ravenous for another one of your delicious dishes.
Thank you so much for your review! We can't wait to satisfy your cravings again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
great drinks , would definitely recommend!
Thank you so much for your review! Soph really does make a great cocktail! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We had an excellent experience on the patio at Del’s. The patio was nice and the tables were well spaced out. The food was amazing - the Arrancini was excellent and so was the seafood cannoloni! Would definitely be back. Thanks for making our birthdays special.
We were so happy to celebrate with you Sunday! Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We can't wait to you have you join us again soon! Thank you so much Margaret! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Romantic spot for date night, dark, fun, candlelit. They brought us fresh baked bread with herb butter and we had house made gelato. Service was quick and friendly. A little on the pricy side but the servings are big enough to share and food is so good that it’s worth it.
Thank you so much for your date night review Sarah! We look forward to your next date night with us! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Great service and food! Enjoyed celebrating my daughters bday with her friends.
We love celebrating with our guests! Thank you so much for your review Tonya! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We had not been back to this restaurant for a couple of years as we had a bad experience with both service and food. We decided to go back for date night and were pleasantly surprised that the food and service were back to what we had received in the past. The food was great and the server was very friendly.
We will definitely be putting this restaurant back on the list of our favourite restaurants to eat at.
I was so happy to meet you Saturday night! More importantly, I was so glad to not only hear that you were giving us another chance, but that you were once again impressed! Thank you so much for joining us and thank you for your review! Until the next date night! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Great service from Chris. Food was great. We will go back for sure
Thank you so much for joining us Tracey! Thank you so much for your review as well! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great food and atmosphere. We had a Reservation and there was little bit of a wait but that’s understandable during these COVID times. We’ll back for sure
Thank you again for being so patient with us! I'm so happy to hear that you had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for your review! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Dels is always one of my favorite spots!! Never disappoints me.
We are so lucky to have so many amazing regulars! Thank you so much for your review! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We where feeling a bit rushed at the beginning, but the manager was outstanding and listen to our concerns and made our evening come complete success for us, we cannot thank him enough and we will be back soon..
We all cannot wait until this covid comes to an end and the restaurant can return to some sort of normality for everyone..
We really appreciated your understanding Friday night Steven! We are so happy to hear that we turned your night around successfully! We look forward to your next visit and thank you so much for the review! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Food was really fast and very fresh. Our server was amazing and had a wonderful time.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Stephanie! We can't wait to have you join us again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We haven't really eaten out (besides the odd patio burger) since COVID caused everything to shut down. As our first experience back out together for a date night, Del's was perfect. They made the experience feel as close to normal as possible, while still feeling safe AND providing us with absolutely delicious food. The mobile menu with QR codes at the table is a nice touch.
I am so happy that all our efforts helped make your first night back 'out' again such a great (and safe) one! Thank you so much for your review Graeme! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Hands down the most delicious meal out my wife and I have ever had. Amazing service by Chris, Food was hot and very tasty.
Thank you so much for your incredible review Jeff! Chris will be delighted to read your review as well! We look forward to your next visit! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Always a great experience. Always a 5-Star
I wish we could give you a return five star rating on here as well! We always have a great time with you! Thank you so much for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Delicious food, large portions, and friendly service.
Thank you so much for your review Beth! We can't wait to see you again! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We were really impressed with being sat in a private dining room all to ourselves. It gave us the flexibility and safety we needed for a party of nine during these times. Our server was extremely friendly and welcoming however service was extremely slow. We were torn between feeling happy that we weren't being rushed but also questioning what was taking so long between courses. Our dinner took 3 hours from start to finish.
I am so happy that you loved the space Stacy! We had our private room available for that day so it worked perfectly for your group Saturday night. I am sorry that things took longer than you (and we) would have liked. We are doing everything in our power to provide the same experience that our guests had pre-March. Thank you so much for understanding and thank you so much for sending us your review! We will be even better for your next visit! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
We participated in date night... So a mozzarella tray and salad to start, butternut squash ravioli and chicken tettrazini as entrees, and blueberry cheesecake and strawberry basil gelato to finish. Absolutely a fabulous meal!!!
We are so happy you loved our new Friday and Saturday Date night feature! We figured.. well, most people have Date night those nights so why wouldn't we do it them! Thank you so much for your review! See you again for your next Date Night! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
Always a lovely time. Everything was delicious, we felt safe in the well spaced environment.
Our server was friendly, and helpful.
They even brought a dessert for my friends birthday :)
Thank you for joining us Friday Jes! I am so happy that our efforts to provide a safe dining experience are being noticed and appreciated! I'm so happy you had such a great birthday dinner! See you again soon! Kevin Blokhuis, Dels General Manager
