You can delete a document from a collection by using the synchronous DeleteOne() method, or the asynchronous DeleteOneAsync() method.


The DeleteOne() method deletes only the first document that matches the filter. To delete more than one document, use the DeleteMany() method.

To learn more about using DeleteMany(), see Delete Many Documents.

The following example uses Builders to delete a document in the restaurants collection with the name "Ready Penny Inn".

Select the Asynchronous or Synchronous tab to see the corresponding code.

Running either of the preceding full examples prints the following results:
