Yes, i would recommend Deerfield to a friend. It was the perfect setting for our little get together for my husbands birthday. We had a delightful time. It seems like they scaled back on the food, just a little. However everything we had was delicious! We enjoy Deerfield very much and our brunch on Sunday was wonderful!

Thank you for your note! We do update the brunch menu every year, with some items removed (crab legs, Southern Station) and some added (sweet potato donuts, Lobster & Shrimp Salad, Mussels, and the BBQ Station) each season. We are glad you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again! Jeff Robinson GM Deerfield

We thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's Sunday brunch. We were especially pleased that there were no long lines to wait for food. The servers were very attentive at clearing plates and refilling beverages and were very pleasant in the process. Just two minor things I would change. First, for the price, it would be nice to include a complimentary mimosa for each guest. And the way the ice cream station was set up, the sign for vanilla ice cream was right in front of the bowl of whipped cream which, quite frankly, looked just like vanilla ice cream. I was not the only person who took a big scoopful thinking it was ice cream only to realize my mistake when I went to take a bite at the table. When I mentioned to the server that he might move the sign to the other side to avoid this, he agreed that it was confusing but he didn't see any need to move the sign. During the time we were discussing this, at least two other people reached for the scoop then overheard what we were saying and said "oops" so I know I was not the only one confused. Not a big deal, just a little courtesy. But other than that, everything was great! And yes, I would recommend to others.

Thanks for the tip on the whipped cream. Everyone likes whipped cream, but not THAT much! We will make it clearer moving forward. Glad you had fun - hope to see you again in March, April or May! Jeff Robinson GM Deerfield

The advertising of Deerfjeld is great. The food, nothing to write home about. Breakfast stand okay. Seafood stand, overcooked oysters, cold crab cakes and boat of shrimp ...huge open boat with shrimp just piled in...and the cocktail sauce not too good.
The carving table..lol...paper thin slices of beef and leg of lamb which not too many people like, so it made the table look full. Pulled pork and chicken not very appealing.
I would not go back and pay that price. Needs some polishing.

Responded on 15 February 2020

Marie: I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit with us in January. I would be happy to speak with you personally. Oysters Rockefeller require attention as some items are not as easily accommodated in the chafing dishes than others. The (rack of) lamb is generally one of our most popular items. And carving our NY strip thin is our goal, but you are welcome to have as much as you like! Please feel free to call me to discuss your concerns. Jeff Robinson GM Deerfield 302.368.6640 ext 1202

Deerfield Sunday brunch is still a fun experience and the ambience is wonderful, but the food and it’s lack of variety does not warrant a $40 price tag. Having only a carving station and bbq for the savory lunch portion doesn’t cut it. The lamb and beef at the carving station were lukewarm at best. The bbq pulled pork was enjoyable, but the pulled chicken was salty. The lack of salad option was disappointing. The kids table is no longer there. And the biggest travesty is that the lemon curd and yogurt parfait station with fresh fruit and granola is gone. I’ll give them one more try, but I’m not hopeful.

We were disappointed in the selection of food this year...no snow crab legs, no turkey or ham, or pasta dishes. We were not fond of the shrimp/lobster salad. Too much fish, not fond of the pulled chicken or pork. Oyster Rockefeller was good. Those who got the Special Poached eggs with the crab did not care for it. Regular poached egg on English muffins were good. Last year was better.

We have been to the Sunday brunch at Deerfield multiple times over the years. This year was a disappointment. In the past they have had crab legs, kids section with macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers, and a pasta station to name a few that were missing. Some of these were even listed on the website and not there. A lot of the food was empty. Being one of the later seatings, I felt as though there wasn’t much interest in service. The young man at the waffle station was wonderful! Very friendly and was the one thing that made it a positive. Not sure if we would go again which is disappointing.

The brunch was good but the food didn't seem to be replenished once it had run low or even out. We had a 12:00 time and I just thought it was poor not to have fresh food at the buffet. Also, it took us an additional 45 minutes to get to Santa which was difficult with a 2 year old.

Their brunch is always excellent. They need to find a better place for the Christmas tree. Many families like taking a family photo in front of the tree. The tree is in a high traffic location.

The food that we had was good, and the service adequate except toward the end when our waiters forgot to bring us the check. As a Celiac patient, I appreciated that the gluten-free options were clearly marked. However, the vegan in our party left hungry and grumpy. The buffet is too expensive to require eating immediately after, so we'll be looking for another venue for our next holiday meal.

Food was great. We’re seated as soon as we got there. Could’ve asked for more of a selection on the food. Everyone had a great time. For $70 a person, it was a little overpriced I thought. But it was Thanksgiving. We’ve been to the brunch before and a few of the event dinners. Everything is always really good.

My self, my wife and my guests enjoyed the open table and the different foods. However, service was slow and I had to ask whom was serving out table. We waited for drinks, water, however the Bloody Mary's with alcohol were the best we've had any where. My rating is less than perfect due to slow service as servers were talking and had no knowledge of the tables assigned until I ask.

Had a problem with my waitresses she could not get me coffee or sugar and to take the dirty plates away. I asked the busgirl to do it and it was done in seconds. The tip should have been $45 for the waitrest but I only gave her 25.00 the rest of the money,
I gave to the bus girl.
I've been at this brunch a couple times and this is the worst service I have ever had.

My husband ad I celebrated Father's day at Deerfield. I was a little disappointed this year. The meat was dry, tough and a little fatty. The variety of the buffet wasn't as good as previous years. Our server kept disappearing which was frustrating. After waiting 20 minutes, we had to ask someone else to run our credit card. We will probably be back because the past everything was excellent.
