    We enjoyed the overall feeling of the place and the service was spotless. But as far as the food goes we found the “captains menu” to be a rather disappointing experience relative to our expectations; great pasta but few other high notes. The wine pairing was excellent throughout though.

    Outstanding and memorable in every way. This was our third visit and we chose to do the tasting menu with the wine parings and on both counts, it could not have been better. The other element particularly noteworthy was the service. The staff from the sommelier and captain on down educated us on everything. A perfect choice for a special occasion!

    Del Posto lives up to their "Fine Dining" status everything about it was magnificent.  We had the $126/person, 5 courses dinner + the black truffle sauce that one of our pasta had for $20 more.  I totally forgot all the fancy names but we started off with the grilled octopus and lobster, then 2 types of pasta, then our secondi choices of lobster and medium rare salmon including desserts were all delicious and flavorful. Every one who took care of us,  about 4 of them, were pleasant, attentive and very friendly but not stuffy. Our reservation was at 11 p.m. and we were not rushed to finish each course. We were there 'till about 2 a.m. It's became one of my favorite restaurants all over again.

    This place continues to get it brilliantly right on all counts. The food is unbelievably good, with an increased level of 'adventurousness' as time goes by as well (e.g. the addition of a lobster and burrata starter might be a nod to Marea and Michael White, but just the same it's brilliantly executed here). The service remains not only seamlessly professional and thorough, but friendly, warm, and welcoming to a fault. The atmosphere is grand, but in no way intimidating; it feels both cozy and intimate and still elegant with a sense of 'special occasion'. A perfect wine list completes the picture. It's almost impossible to say enough good about the experience here. They well deserve their NY Times 4 stars.

Dinner was unbelievable down to every detail perfect. Our young adult daughters were amazed by the service and every well thought out plate. The staff couldn't have been kinder and so very helpful to our girls who had questions. It was not a special occasion but they made us feel like it was.

    Del Posto was a perfect meal. Allow me to share my experience- We came for my boyfriends birthday. Upon being seated we were explained the menu graciously as well as the wine list. It is extensive. Our waitress was not pushy and very understanding when we had questions. The food was impeccable. The salad with truffle dressing was simple and amazing. The carpaccio was delectable and perfect with the assortment of bread. oh! eat the bread! Our pastas were soft and perfectly portioned. I had lobster with fairytale eggplant as a meal, and it was such a nice balance of flavors. The best part- i wanted a cocktail to come out specifically at midnight, my boyfriends birthday, and it was perfect timing. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

    We went to Del Posto when it was newly opened and said it was one of our top 10 meals ever. When we came back to New York with enough time to get a reservation, we are always torn about returning to a favorite or trying one of the many new places in the city. We are so happy that we returned because we had another out of this world experience at Del Posto. Every dish was terrific, and what we enjoyed most about the service was it was elegant, but extremely warm and friendly. The carne crudo was maybe my favorite thing, but it is hard to choose. We'll be back!

    I have choosen Del Posto for our wedding anniversary. Though we were late, they took genuine interest, and kept the kitchen open for us. We decided to have Captains 7 and left the course decision to Chef. It was an amazing experience. The ambiance and especially service was perfect. I recommend Del Posto for celebrations and romantic occasions.

    We had high expectations but were a bit disappointed... Perhaps we made the wrong choices from the (lunch) menu, but we did not find the food as exciting as expected, considering the good reputation and Michelin star that Del Posto has. Friendly and service minded staff did their best but could not quite make up for the disappointment.

    We loved everything about it. We came for the fixed price lunch and all the food was wonderful. In addition to the menu, we were each given a chef's sampling of appetizers and desserts. It's a beautiful venue and the service was outstanding. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We may return for the chef's tasing menu. We just loved the place and I have already recommended it to a friend.

    Houston restaurants compare favorably with most restaurants in New York, however, our meal at Del Posto was one of the best ones we have had anywhere. There were unexpected little extras such as an amuse bouche and cookies to take away that seemed to be different for each table. The service was also notable: knowledgeable, experienced, and unobtrusive. The restaurant is very elegant and not terribly noisy. The prix fixe concept was a little different from others and I liked the flexibility. All in all, there was nothing I didn't like. The fact that we had to make reservation for 5:45 PM shows that others agree. The restaurant appeared to be nearly full by 6 PM.

    Several weeks ago, I had lunch at Del Posto. Because it was such an extraordinary dining experience, I ate dinner there with some out-of-town friends this weekend. Dinner surpassed lunch, which was difficult to do. We met for drinks and then had dinner. We were there for 5 hours total. The service was better than wonderful, in part because no one rushed us, and in part because the staff are so knowledgeable about anything we asked them. The 5-course dinner was perfect, as was the wine we had before dinner. I will certainly go back for another special occasion.

    We visit NYC 2 or 3 times each year, and have been dining at the Bastianich/Batali restaurants the last few years. (Still to get a Babbo reservation -- remains a goal of ours -- maybe next time!) Having read Restaurant Man by Joe Bastianich, I was eager to visit Del Posto. Our expectations were met and exceeded. The entire dining experience was flawless. It was elegant yet warm, not stuffy. The food was wonderful, and the staff were approachable and real.

Every aspect of the evening was impeccable from the greeting, to the welcome at the bar, to the hospitality given to us by every staff member that approached our table. The decor is simply elegant, food and wine were stellar only to be topped by the 5 start service that was warm, well informed, and genuinely interested in making our evening an unforgettable event.

    They have only explained what the dishes were for us for one of the five courses (maybe they were too busy or just simply forgot.) Servers didn't bother to wait till we finished our food before they took the plates away, they simply assume because we were talking, that is definitely the implication of we were done with the dishes. And maybe because it was late (11pm, which in fairness, we started our dinner at 9pm), after they took our dessert away, and took maybe 1 minutes to give us our bill, they were in a rush of making us pay the bill. It was a reunion, and we were still talking and tried to enjoy our evening, we were going to pay, but could they just give us some more time to talk with friends and finish our conversation first?
