Recently my husband and I had dinner at the Bianca Restaurant in the Delano with 7 customers of ours. The wait-staff were great. I wish I could say the same for the food. My husband's $48 pasta dish was cold on arrival. Not wanting to make a scene in front of our customers, he said nothing.
We went for drinks at the bar after dinner where the bar tender was very rude. He told my husband we'd have to wait for drinks because there were 6 people ahead of us, then promptly served people who'd arrived after our party. We were never served so we went to the pool bar.
To top off our experience, Valet lost my car! I waited for an hour for them to find my car! They had the gall to still charge $25 for parking!
In a town known for poor customer service, the Delano unfortunately sets a very low mark.
Visually, the facility is beautiful but seems 90ish. Top off the dated ambiance with poor, rude service and the Delano now becomes a place that is best fondly remembered as it was in it's heyday.
