    Our server, Jake, was outstanding. We were there with elderly parents who speak softly & get confused easily. He was super patient and walked over to them and kneeled down to make it easier for them (and probably for him too). He also made excellent suggestions & responded quickly with requests that were urgent. (We had a hangry college student & he made sure her appetizer was out very quickly) He also responded thoughtfully when we were in need of a napkin. Also loved the teamwork when the food was ready so that everyone with hot food received it while hot. Thank you! Next time we visit Columbus, Del Mar will make our dining list.

    As usual, the service was fabulous, the food delicious, the drinks wonderful and the Valrhona brownie was absolutely sinful! Only one issue with the sound level, especially the music, being too loud to carry on a conversation. My husband has state of the art hearing aids which can be programmed to suit the environment however, he was still unable to hear. Of course, this will never stop us from dining at all of Cameron Mitchell’s great restaurants!

    First visit, but one I’ve wanted to visit. Disappointed in menu. Not enough seafood choices. Nothing too original. Iced tea seemed old. Cinnamon bun fantastic. I won’t bother to return.

    Was notified table was ready about 15 minutes prior to reservation time. Seated upon arrival. Place was very busy and noise level on the high side. Was seated by bar which was very crowded and congested which made for an uncomfortable first part of meal until the bar cleared out. Waiter was attentive but forgetful The seafood stew and ceviche was very tasty. Shrimp pasta was a bit on the dry side and was supposed to have Caribbean chilies but there was no heat in the dish at all. Chocolate brownie dessert was ok. Prices were as expected. However I’m not sure I’d go back on a Saturday night.

    very disappointing experience. halibut was horribly overcooked, and for $41, was not worth it. To their credit, they brought me another plate, and that was marginally better. My wife's salmon was the same, Dead. brussel sprout appetizer was very underwhelming. the pieces were inconsistent, huge to small. they were undercooked, could not even cut with the knife I had. asked for 2019 Pinot, they brought me 2020, not very good. all in all, would not go back. Not worth the money.

    Everything was immaculate. Food, drinks and service were spot on. Got the Sea bass feature and tuna poke. Flavor composition was all there and palatability was amazing. Jake my server was tentative and quick to assist in anything I needed. I left a 4 star because the only thing that went wrong was my first table greet time. I know I was a solo diner, and I know myself to be an easy-going table (I do work in the industry) but it still took 30 mins to touch me for water service/ drink order after I had been seated. Even then I don’t look over my overall experience too much. Keep up the immaculate service you guys!

    Great place and food. Our server 152 Shamyia was very good! The music inside was too loud, especially for a Sunday brunch. We thought it was just us being older, but our kids, ages 23 and 21, complained about the same thing. And then walked outside, and it blasted on the street, too! Sunday should be a bit more mellow. Play it loud other days and nights, but Sunday, better to turn it down just a notch. Thanks

    Service style can be described as “drop and go.” Our server was friendly enough but operated at the bare minimum of guest engagement. We were seated a small table which was fine but nothing was cleared and menus weren’t taken away after ordering. Food and drinks were delicious. Flatbread and poke bowls, signature all cocktails great.

    Del Mar has a great menu with several original dishes. The Halibut & Crispy Skate are two great fish dishes & the mussels are always a good starter. Happy hour from 4pm-6pm gives you 1/2 of drinks and apps. I would definately recommend a visit if you haven't been there before. Combine dinner with a quick drink at Lincoln Social before or after up on the roof.
