What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.1

Del Posto is one of the best special occasion restaurants in New York City. Think of it like a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Our table of four was overall disappointed. The two pasta dishes were amazingly delicious and the burrata was heavenly. The service was not seamless or impressive, the main course were ok- the tiny pork chop was fatty, the fish stew broth was not consistent and the fish dish was ok. They did not have Pinot Grigio or named vodkas such as kettle one or grey goose but rather something called hangar one which was barely ok. I guess for $400 a person I was expecting too much! L

Our recent dinner at Del Posto was so wonderful in every way. Celebrating a birthday with my family is gift enough but our server Debbie made the evening so comfortable and memorable for everyone. The experience of enjoying delicious food in an amazingly beautiful atmosphere with our almost adult children was a treat. Debbie made each of us feel like the night was created just for us!

I’ve enjoyed eating at Del Posto for several years. Unlike in the past, yesterday was a disappointment, mostly due to amateurish service. Also, the amuse bouche (artichoke and chicken soup) were both much too salty. Waiter spilled jus on tablecloth right next to my arm. Later, he spilled water. Waiter body checked table causing a disturbance. While in mid conversation, an arm appears in between my friend I to remove bread crumbs from tablecloth so we have to stop our conversation. Waiter confused which one of us ordered the secondo so I had to correct him. There much movement and flittering of waitstaff around our table when I would prefer that they remain in the background, not hovering over us. We were seated immediately adjacent other occupied tables when 2/3 of the room was unoccupied so we were annoyed by unavoidably overhearing conversations from them. I would have preferred to have a more peaceful and relaxing meal. One or two of these accidents or mishaps is understandable, but when they happen over and again, it has an adverse impact on the overall dining experience. Changes in the way a restaurant operates is normal and inevitable, but this is not for the better.
