Steakhouse
Delmonico's began as the first restaurant in the United States and has had a profound impact on American dining tradition. Our setting is where nearly two centuries of notable poets, affluent socialites, celebrities and presidents have celebrated in the splendor that is Delmonico's. Delmonico's welcomes Executive Chef Bill Oliva our kitchen. While preserving the classic dishes such as Lobster Newburg, Delmonico's Steak and Baked Alaska, Bill brings a level of culinary sophistication to Delmonico's with his addition of creative seafood offerings and other inventive dishes. Business casual attire is suggested (a jacket and tie are not required).
We kindly request that gentleman refrain from wearing hats, shorts, sleeveless shirts and flip flops in the main dining room.

The food was a little underwhelming. The brussel sprouts were overcooked and pretty greasy too. The service was great though and the steaks were tasty. We enjoyed the baked Alaska as well. I also passed along that we were celebrating a birthday in the reservation but it was not acknowledged.

Celebrated a friend’s birthday. Food was delicious. Has a chestnut risotto and king crab ravioli starters to share. Rich and tasty. All vegetable sides and desserts were above par. Best vanilla ice cream I’ve ever had. Hash brown side was dry- would skip next time.

Poor quality control on a slow night. I ordered the west coast oysters and they came out with no liquor. Also they mixed up the temperature of our stakes. I’m not impressed with a waiter that doesn’t write down my order. If you get it wrong you look like a fool.

This is our 3rd time eating at Delmonico’s, we have had Albert as our waiter each time and he’s really great. We sat in the Board Room which was great because the noise level was so much lower in there than the main dining room. Our steaks were done perfectly, as always. We will be back.

There were several misses with our dining experience. While I won’t detail each miss, two major issues was with service from the staff along with passing a T-bone steak off as a 45 day aged porterhouse steak. The menu shows porterhouse but the wait staff, the steak itself, and itemized receipt shows t-bone. I would not have expected this from thus establishment.

The prefixed menu was off putting especially for someone with shellfish allergies and the up charge for the steaks was ridiculous especially with the already predetermined $130 per person. So your left paying for other people’s indulgences

Steaks were great. Service was poor - I don’t even think we had a waiter, never got a name. We were served the wrong desert - they ended up giving us both because of it. One steak came out the wrong temperature. Sides were nothing great. Not worth the hype in my opinion.

Delmonico’s never disappoints - we’ve been coming here for almost two decades and love the historic and civilized dining room.

We tried to use an opentable reward and the sever was unable to process it... it was a very bad experience. They were incredibly rude about it and we spent a long time on the phone with opentable customer service, who said the reward should have worked. I still have yet to redeem a reward ever from opentable... and I am still embarrassed by how it was handled at Delmonico’s. We were there for a long time + gave all the information + my phone to the server who was rude and never successfully used it. Disappointing.

I don't get to be in New York often. Delmonico's was all I hoped it would be. The place is classy, the staff is classy, and the food is amazing.

My husband and I went on a whim because it was close to our hotel and it did not disappoint. The waiter was EXCEPTIONAL! Even found a wine I loved when I normally hate wine. Every recommendation was perfect and on point. Well worth the money.

Food was average. The Brussel sprouts were something you would get at a diner on RT 66. What a disappointment. This is a restaurant who gets customers only on name recognition.

Ordered the Del Monico's steak, Filet Mignon and for the price those steaks were pretty average and not worth it. Both were chewy and overdone, despite asking for medium.

I came during restaurant week, food was good, deals were great. They didn’t cheap out like most restaurants do during restaurant week. Overall good experience, but for a place the considers itself fine dining, restaurant should hav been nicer. Bathrooms were a mess, the decor was old and needed a lot of work.

I decided to treat myself for my 50th birthday! I am obsessed with the history of the restaurant and have wanted to go for some time. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food and presentation were phenomenal! And just knowing that you were dining where such notable patrons enjoyed the same meal was, for me, one of the highlights of my milestone birthday! Thank you to the staff for a memorable visit! I cannot wait to comeback and enjoy a dinner with the table side historian!

The food was good, but the wait staff mixed up part of our order, and instead of fixing it, the manager disputed what we’d ordered. We weren’t looking for a comp, just asking for the few missing sides. Their handling of the situation soured the rest of the meal. Rather than staying and enjoying more bottles of wine, we quickly finished our meal and left. Don’t plan to return.
