"Utilisez le Métro!"

Perhaps LA's most transit-friendly French restaurant, I found Delphine to be a cut above comparable hotel eateries. Being located quite literally a few steps from the Hollywood/Vine Metro station allows one to skip the overpriced valet ($35 ... yes, seriously) and save money for more culinary concerns.

Craving some of the less French and more comfort-oriented items on their menu, I found both my Pizza Italienne appetizer and refreshingly simple Fish & Chips entree hit the spot. (It would, however, be a mistake to overlook the dynamic dessert menu.)

As you may gather from other reviews, the Delphine experience is part menu, part ambiance. To soak up the Delphine scene without being part of the scene, consider Table 70 which is located on the more modest, "quiet" side of the bustling patio. This hideaway is calm enough (even on a bustling Friday night) to allow one to easily converse with one's dining companion.

I had yet to review Delphine because I really dislike giving 1 or 2 stars, unless I seriously just have to. I've tried this place a couple times for lunch, and once for dinner and I was never impressed. I honestly disliked it, I couldn't pinpoint a certain thing or reason it just never won me over - a friend asked if I wanted to skip the gym to go here for lunch today and I thought absolutely not! but I went!

The place is cute inside, I like the decor - outside it's not as cute but the sofa seats are very comfy and relaxing. Service was great - I'm pretty sure it's always good - so it must be more of the menu that I haven't enjoyed.

Today I started with an $18 of Cabernet from Napa Valley - it could only be down hill from there right?!?! Actually, it wasn't - surprisingly. The shrimp and sausage appetizer was quite delish and the steak and Gruyere sandwich was heavy, but very tasty!

If I do return for lunch again, I think I'll try the turkey sandwich on pretzel bread. I wasn't paying but I couldn't help but notice the prices were a bit higher than most lunch spots in the area - then again Delphine is in The W, which may explain it and 15% gratuity is added to all checks - for a party of 2, I thought that was odd but ok, whatever.

It's just OK. If you are in the area, I'd recommend going to Off Vine or Balcones del Peru, both nearby and much better.

First to Review

Delphine is more of a California bistro, inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, with a a lot more Spanish French Italian influence. From the Costa Brava to Italian Riviera. It’s an exciting part of the world to deal with; the idea of bright, brininess of southern France and the rich, buttery, creaminess of Northern Italy. Delphine has a heavy seafood menu with a lot of rich, exciting flavors. I think of garlic anchovies basil, all those rich spices and spirits like Chartreuse, Sherry and Grappa-- delicious. This region has all of the best ingredients in the world and that is what we cook with. My favorite dish is fish in general- all the fish we do is delicious: the raw bar, the plateau de fruit de mer. We do raw bar Mondays- $1 $2 oyster night. It's there to encourage the over indulgence of the finer things in life, enjoying too many oysters and too much champagne. The a la carte trout meuniere is a classic preparation: sauté trout with lemon parsley brown butter sauce, a riff of dish that I had in new orleans at Ugelsich’s. It’s a very cool place in new Orleans. I had this trout dish, crispy skin, cornmeal crusted, smothered in potatoes, shrimp and capers. I do a slightly refined version of that dish with shrimp, potatoes and capers. I like the combination of fish and meat- not in the surf and turf way; we do an arctic char, it’s a wonderful fish that is indigenous to the landlocked lakes of the Italian alps. It’s salmon like in texture and flavor but less pungent, but still fatty with a much more delicate skin that crisps up just beautifully. We prepare the char with a garbure which is a traditional French, brothy stew with lots of garlic celery cabbage, duck and pork. It’s a pork and cabbage soup with a delicious rich broth. I used that as the winter preparation for the arctic char.
