Cioppino always stews mussels, scallops and shrimp in a rich tomato broth with red onions, peppers and fennel, but other fish ingredients change, so anything from Chilean sea bass to grouper to good local rockfish may appear. Order with or without pasta. If you prefer risotto, chef Joey Garramone is happy to oblige. 'We used to do the cioppino as a special every week,' Garramone says. 'It got so popular, we had to put it on the menu.' We couldn't be happier.

Chef Nate Garayantes' lobster tasting combines three great appetizer-sized dishes into one very fine meal: butter-poached Maine lobster tail with new potatoes, English peas and cippolini onions; a crispy claw served atop a mini skillet of corn bread with slaw; and chilled corn and lobster soup. 'The whole lobster is used and presented in three different preparations to re-create the feeling of a summertime picnic,' says owner Alysha Garayantes. It works.

Bouillabaisse of lobster, shrimp, sea scallops, littleneck clams and fresh fish in a Pernod-laced saffron tomato and fennel broth is a classic.

'My partner and I were in France a couple of times and really observed the preparation. If you're going to take a step like putting bouillabaisse on your menu, it had better be good.' It is.

GET GOOD SERVICE EVERY TIME

Good service is a relative term. Some diners want speed. Others expect flawless wine presentations. On one thing, experts agree: 'The key two words are ‘customer focus,'' says Fred DeMicco, chair of hotel and restaurant management at University of Delaware. So how do you deal with common dining dilemmas? Local industry types offer the following.

How do I handle an undesirable seat?

The staff can't read your mind. Some guests at Harry's Savoy Grill love the bar area, says owner Xavier Teixido. Others are outraged when seated there. 'The key is to let us know when you call,' he says.

No one has waited on me yet. How long is too long?

Servers at Nage in Rehoboth must engage diners within two minutes of seating, says owner Kevin Reading. In busy times, that may mean a greeting and a promise to return in a few minutes. Customers appreciate being noticed.

Is it OK to tip low for poor service?

Fred Bohn of Dover Downs Hotel & Casino tips 20 percent for good service, 15 percent for average service and 10 percent for poor service. When DeMicco gets poor service, he speaks to the manager. It's not always the server's fault.
