    We were recomnended Del Posto by a good friend from NYC - he had recently dined there abd felt it is one of the best in the city . We did enjoy our special evening - just two of us . We were welcomed on early arrival and shown directly to our table . What struck us was the large number if staff - we seemed to be surrounded . It took quite some time to get attention or to receive menus . Cocktails ordered and duly arrived - one was incorrect. Another thing that did surprise us was that my partner had to ask for his dinner fork to be replaced when he accidently dropped it on the carpet . We chose the 8 course wine paring menue / all fabulous but would have preferred to be able to choose individually - too much and very pricy .

    This was my second meal at Del Posto. I first dined in early June and was AMAZED by both an outstanding meal and stellar service - it was PERFECT in every way. In contrast to my first , my second visit fell short in both food and service. Our waitress was missing almost our entire meal. We didn't see her after our first course and only saw her again when it was time to receive our bill. While appetizer and pasta dishes were executed well, our entrees were very cold (not even warm). Not one person came over to check on us. To disappoint us even more, no one asked us how our meal was when bringing the check or taking our payment. Meanwhile, we watched other tables get attentive service. Sorely disappointing for the money paid.

    Gorgeous restaurant. Impeccable service. Food excellent. Somewhat pretentious. Do not accommodate requests. Limited menu. Extremely expensive. 4 of us chose the $126/person menu. Everything was additional-bottle of wine, glass of champagne, bottled water, additional charge for any beef dish, any side veg. With tip, in excess of $800. I don't eat desserts or pasta but did because portions are soooo small that I did not want to leave hungry. Good for very special occasion. Price would preclude me from returning. Just be aware.

    Memorable. The service is so attentive you feel reluctant to contribute yourself but the intent is to have you wanting for nothing. My Advice,let them do it. You pay for it handedly so make the most of the opportunity and get the value out. They did a great job, really and the food was top notch. The veal chop I had, bread by menonites was as tender as a tenderloin, seriously. I completely overate and the dessert turned into five. My wife and I each order, then they delivered a gratis for my wife's Bday, plus they had some post secondi treats and takes ways so 5 dishes for the two of us. Truly memorable, fantastic room and service and the food top notch but certainly will be memorable for the sticker shock as well. Molto bene.

    As someone with celiac, I am so appreciative of Del Posto's efforts to provide various pasta entrees that are GF and even a foccachia that's quite good. And sometimes the dishes are tasty but you can't rely on that. Garganelli Verdi with bolognese was tasteless and overdone with insufficient sauce. In spite of asking multiple times for a pomodoro with basil, the substitute came sans leaves and was bland. I like the Batali bottled marinara better. Crudo was good but just slightly less flavorful when compared to our last visit. But the fish soup secondi was very tasty. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable ( if a bit cowed by the chef) and the atmosphere lovely if bordering on stuffy. We'll go again and cross our fingers.

    The restaurant is in a somewhat out of the way Manhattan location but the food and experience has always been wonderful. The menu changes seasonally, but if available try 'Yesterday's 100 layer lasagna'. There is a sommelier available and on two occasions when asked made perfect recommendations. Check their website before making reservations.

    A perfect evening from primi to dessert. The service was superb and not intrusive. A magical evening for a special occasion was enjoyed by both of us. The burnt beef was one of the best ribeye steak 's I ever had. My lobster Cesar salad was also so good . This restaurant never fails to capture those special details

    This place is a gem of a restaurant . Mario and his staff have thought of everything . Right down to the stool for your wife's purse . Parking is a plus as well. There's a parking lot right up the street. Once inside it starts . The five star experience begins . The captain or head waitress she's as talented as they get never a pen or paper to take a order and everyone is insink . One plate never hits the table without the other plate being presented as well . I can't wait to go back again worth every dollar . Let's not forget the food it's top notch nothing left unthought of .

    Del Posto came up on my radar as a restaurant to try during my first visit to NYC - I'm so glad it did. It's a gorgeous restaurant with even more beautiful food. Plating suited the food & wasn't too over the top. Portions were great for a tasting menu & the flavors were amazing. I highly recommend white truffle pasta dishes when they are in season - truly a luxurious way to treat your palate. Don't worry if opinions might steer you elsewhere, as there are plenty of other restaurants to choose from; just know that you won't get a similar meal anywhere & this is more than worth a look.

    After having good experiences with other Mario Batelli restaurants in NYC, we thought we would try his high end, fixed price option for a special occasion. There was a wedding downstairs at the restaurant and the band vibrated loudly throughout our meal. We are fine with loud but it was just out of sorts with this fancy, fine dining room and was in contradiction with the whole way they presented themselves. The service was impeccable but stiff and somewhat awkward. The pasta courses were good, the wine pairing made the meal, the rest was ok at best. Although they tried to make things right, which we appreciate, it still ended with a lot of money spent on a mediocre meal.

    While very expensive, this place certainly lived up to the hype. We dined with our 11 & 16 yr old sons (who are foodies for sure) and they loved it, as well! The lasagna was to die for and the burnt beef left us craving this place over every other dining experience during our trip. This will certainly be a "must dine" for all future visits to NYC. After dinner, a walk on The High Line is definitely in order!

    After a walk on the Highline down from 30th Street with my wife, we were ready to indulge in what ever Del Posto had for us on our day off. It was well worth the walk and time. From the minute we entered the restaurant, we were taken attended to hand and foot. The food was luxurious in every way and we did take advantage of truffle season. A tremendous prix fixe menu left us amazed with smiles on our faces as we danced through each course including dessert. Thank you for bringing us back to life.
