BEWARE OF ADDED FRAUD CHARGES ON YOUR CREDIT CARD RECEIPT FROM DELANCY RESTAURANT ON SUNSET!!! I ate dinner at Delancy on 10/6/11 and received a DOUBLE tip on my credit card statement. I went there with a Disney Executive and when the check came to our table, I offered to pay for dinner and he offered to pay the tip in cash of $16 on a $88 bill. So we left a $16 cash tip and I marked through the gratuity on credit card slip and totaled up the bill to $88 and signed. I do online banking and I am notified via email of all my purchases. Upon the notification on Delancy purchase, I see they charged ADDITIONAL 20% tip ($17) on my credit card even though I put a marked through the tip section because we left a cash tip. This was not an oversight and was done deliberately. When I spoke with the manager the following day, she told me..."that it's common practice that all restaurants do." Filing with the BBB and any other ways for their fraudulent activities. Please repost and stop consumers from being screwed over.
Great place! – We love Delancey! It's a great place, and we love the honey brushetta and the butternut squach ravioli!
Awesome – This place got that mature feel to it. Its not hip or cool, but mature. If your older its a great spot to go.
Horrible service, bland food – My wife and I visited on a Friday night -- our first time. We were initially impressed with the decor; it is very urban, NYC. That is where our good impressions ended. Ordered the fried calamari, which arrived in less than a minute, which means it is sitting in a bowl, under a heat lamp. If the waiter knows this, at least wait a couple of minutes to send the order and "fool" us that it is fresh. The dish was underseasoned and tepid. We also shared a prosciutto/arugula pizza that was devoid of flavor and overhwlemed with too much crust. For a restaurant that does not seat more than 40 people, with three servers, two busboys, and a "schoozy" manager-type walking around, we cannot understand why we sat with empty wine glasses for more than ten minutes (on two different occasions) without anyone asking if we needed another drink. The servers do realize that if you drink more, the check total increases in their favor, right? Would rather be part of "hidden camera" Pizza Hut commercial instead.
Food is Undeniably Fantastic, Martinis Adequate – I stopped by Delancey's with a friend. We just wanted to grab a martini, but once you look at the menu, its hard to resist some of the entrees. Butternut squash ravioli, gourmet pizza recipes you might expect to see on Top Chef New York, salads with spinach, pine nuts, arugula . . . my stomach is grumbling just from the memory (I am vegan by the way).
So I had the side of artichoke hearts with pine nuts, orange, sweet and spicy onions. Small but delicious- the portion is the size of a typical gourmet side dish for $8. The inventive pastas and pizzas ran about $10-$13 each. I ordered a citrus martini which was fine, but was sweetened up over the bite of vodka. I asked for a regular martini to follow, dirty- and again it was a bit too mild for my taste (and for $12).
My friend had the pulled chicken and potato pizza which she seemed to thoroughly enjoy and a few cosmos. Our bill was alarming for lower middle class folk and two people who just had a couple drinks, one entree and one appetizer, totaling to almost 90 bucks.
The atmosphere is trendy east coast- which kind of disqualifies itself. Its small, a little loud, wood tables and brick walls. Then you have a few internet first dates, a few Hollywood hipsters and small groups of friends hanging out. Nice crowd.
Our waiter seemed enthusiastic the first 45 seconds of speaking and then he just seemed to want to get away from us. Maybe he wanted to be speedy, but I think its because our table put us at crotch level.
A Nice Place To Chill For The Evening! – Though the location is a bit off to the east of busy Sunset Strip & Hollywood Blvd. hot spots, this Italian restaurant and bar is good place for nice evening with your friends or just a romantic evening with your special someone. At least you can hear eachother talking. Service is great! Love the place.
NO THANK YOU – went on the opening night, just to see how it was. we live right down the street, and thought it would be nice to walk and eat/drink. right as we entered the place, people were looking at us as if we weren't supposed to be there. and no, we are not bums. we dressed nice, as if anyone was gonna eat dinner. well...... we went to the bar first, and right away, someone came up to us and told us that it was the opening night for the business partners. there was hardly anyone in the place, and they were gonna kick us out?! my boyfriend got MAD, because it used to be a thai restaurant, and we used to ge there all the time. we loved it. now it's some wannabe "high-end" place. all our neihbors hate it, and so do we. will never go back there again. when we pass by it, and see that it is not busy, we laugh.
Utterly Charming – Delicious pizzas and the best Kir Royal I've had in Los Angeles. It feels like a little Parisian bistro, I will certainly go back.
New York's Lower East Side finds its way to East Hollywood with authentic NYC atmosphere, classic Italian dishes and a lively bar scene. – In Short
Bowery owner George Abou-Daoud calls it an "Italian gastropub," but this spot really hearkens back to NY's old-school ristorante, updated with a funky Hollywood beat and tasty microbrews. LES expats revel under pressed-tin ceilings among marble and exposed brick that nail the gritty East Coast atmosphere. Meanwhile, boisterous Paramount studio folks, young families and foodies help create an eclectic, warm neighborhood vibe. Some come for the impressive beer list, others for the Italian specialties like fried calamari, Italian speck with quail egg, saltimbocca, spaghetti carbonara, sweet potato and goat cheese ravioli, and a dozen pizzas --both classic standbys and gourmet varieties made with pancetta, gorgonzola, and braised fennel.
