Wow, just wow...Unique experience! Completely sublime and delicious. Many thanks to the chef and staff for an amazing experience and meal.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta goWithout a doubt Del Posto is one of the best fine dining restaurants we've tried in NYC. Food, wine , service and music made for a magical afternoon. Thoroughly recommended.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the LineWe had the captain's menu- an eight course extravaganza of flavors, aromas and textures. Our server was excellent and did a wonderful job of explaining our dishes. Perhaps would have liked to be more proactive in choosing our dishes. Really wonderful experience though. Sit back and enjoy.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the wait to get a reservationI've been trying for years. This time, I made my own Mother's Day reservations in advance, and the experience was worth the wait. The chef combines flavors and textures in such a unique way, every bite was a revelation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClassicDel Posto is just a phenomenal dining experience from start to finish. We actually brought our (2) daughters (10) & (8) to an early dinner with us and at first I thought might be a bad judgement call but on the contrary the staff was absolutely accommodating. I would recommend anything because the prepartion and finese put into the dishes is beyond explanation. Just go with what you are in the mood for and buckle up your taste buds for a wild ride. I can't wait to enjoy another experience at Del Posto. Great job.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTopsOne of the most complete resturants I have ever been too in Manhattan. From the outstanding food all the way down to the impeccable service everything was 5 star (I mean they even brought little stools to keep the womens bags off the floor). It isn't cheap which is why I would recommend it for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, wine and theExcellent food, wine and the BEST service possible !!! Pricy, but worth every morsel !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome in every way!Outstanding food, with exceptional service. Everything on the menu was fresh and vibrant, bursting with flavor. The service was absolutely exceptional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWowSimply one of the best meals I've ever had, period. I don't know what the Michelin people are thinking giving it only one star; it was absolutely comparable to the three-stars I've eaten in. Outstanding.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I've ever hadThe food and service was exceptional. The highest praise from everyone in our party. Expensive but worth it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTreat Yourself!In this elegant surrounding, it would be hard to have a bad meal. That said, the food is excellent and punctuated with some unexpected surprises. Bring your wallet and get set to enjoy.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNOT WHAT IT USED TO BEHighly overpriced, especially the wines, and mediocre food at best is what we found Del Posto to be on our first visit back in some years. Only the service was impeccable, and I guess that is what we are paying for now. One of the pasta dishes, the spaghetti with the crab, was so bad that we had to send it back; tasted like someone had dumped a little dishwater in it. The lasagna replacement arrived in 3 minutes - makes you wonder about food "cooked to order." We have spent a lot of time in Tuscany; this is about as far away from it in food quality as it is in mileage. Save your money.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always it is a joy to dineAs always it is a joy to dine at Del Posto. Great food and wonderful service.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAn amazing dining experienceI'm a lifelong NYer and was assuming that Del Posto had lost some of its luster over the years, but boy was I wrong! The food, service and ambiance is not just unique, but world class. I'll be back soon, my wife was mad that I went without her.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLyxkrog I MeetpackingEn utmärkt fin Italiensk krog av högsta klass. Fantasisk service, mat och dryck.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Meal of My LifeDel Posto knocked it out of the park! And, it didn't hurt that the restaurant had just won 2 James Beard Awards that evening! Emeril Lagasse made an appreance and a private party broke out to celebrate. The service was immpeccable, the food was to die for, and the ambience was alive with energy. Had the best meal of my life! Thank you!
I will make the recomendation to Del Posto OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! it was an amazing meal, and the service was incredible. Thank you from the person who always makes all the reservations, and the experience has never been as fantastic as your restaurant! Del Posto definitely raised the bar.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM12 yr anniversary......and worth the wait! The restaurant was great too. Hehe. We have ha a year of great food starting with Eleven Madison Park and followed by Gotham. Del Posto beat them both handily. We will go back before the year is out.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinning experience EverI go out to eat often but this was an amazing evening. The service, food and wine all were amazing. We arrived atctge resturant and our table was available on time. The food was interesting and well prepared. The wine list was amazing and the wine was served with such presentation. The meal took over 3 hours but not once would i have tried to move the eveningv faster. I would definately return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHeavenly pastaThe best dining experience of my life
Especially the pasta and lobster
The service was helpful and impeccable
The whole experience took 3 hours so be sure to
allow enough time5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingExceptional in every way. Prices are over the top but, in that ethereal context, it provides value. Ambiance, Service, attitude of staff and food quality make it a memorable experience, but only for very special occasions. Although clearly a very high end establishment, the staff manages to not take themselves too seriously. Fine dining should be fun and they succeed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWife's 30th Birthday DinnerMy wife's been wanting to go to Del Posto for quite sometime now and we finally surpised her for her 30th Birthday and it did not disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere were all perfect and we felt pampered all night long too. It's definitely pricey though, we spent around $1200 for a party of 6, but easily could have been more if we had purchased a more expensive bottle of wine. I would recommend Del Posto to anyone looking to celebrate a very special occasion.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Dining ExpereienceMy twin sister and i were celebrating our birthday and had one the best dining expereices of our lives. Service was amazing, attentiive without being intrusive Food was delicious. Decor was perfect. Excellent all the way around5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPoor ValueYou're paying for remarkable service. No doubt the food is delicious, but the price tag is very high and I've been to slightly less very-expensive meals that knocked my socks off more. The service is sensational, but that isn't as important at this price. Nonetheless, do show up hungry. They will feed you silly.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth for the priceMy experience at Del Post was great. Especially, what I had as the main dish for prix Fix lunch, duck was very good.
Portion is a little too much for us, but other than that, just excellent!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was everything I hopedIt was everything I hoped it would be! One item to note...I would consider myself a foodie, but some of the menu items were intimidating. The wine list was completely overwhelming.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner. Staff wereExcellent dinner. Staff were knowledgeable (I ordered two obscure champagnes, with advice). Staff were also helpful - none of the items on the list of main courses appealed to my wife, so they offered a fish dish that was not on the menu, and delicious. The porcini "cappuccino" was a wonderful first course - rich mushroom broth topped with a great mushroom foam. I had a perfectly prepared veal chop. Preparation and presentation of all courses was impeccable.
One of the guests had physical challenges. - The restaurant could not have been more helpful in accommodating.
A wonderful evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDel Posto - FANTASTICDel Posto was highly recommended by several friends who dined there when visiting NYC. My husband & I were blown away! This restaurant was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary with it's elegant & romantic setting. The service was impeccable from start to finish. We were impressed with the captains of our table with their food descriptions and recommendations and master sommelier with the wine selection. We ordered the 5 tasting meal and enjoyed every single bite. If you want a high end dining experience that will satisfy your taste palate, this is the place! We look forward to our next visit!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDel Posto sets out to be aDel Posto sets out to be a dining experience and it is. The food is beautifully prepared and delicicous. I had a salad that was almost too pretty to eat. The amuse bouche and the chocolates to finish are lovely touches. The wild (and we must emphasize that) striped bass was smooth, velvety and delicious. My issue is that it is over the top. The service can feel overwrought. I do not need a description of everything that is on my plate when it is served. I ordered it because it is what I want to eat and you already told me what would be on the plate. The reverence paid to each course and the earnestness with which food discussed and presented leaves little room for joy and fun in having so much good food in such a handsome setting.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was for lunch. We hadThis was for lunch. We had lobster salad app, then all pastas--lobster ravioli. pumpkin agnolotti, mushroom ravioli, garganelli, orecchietti. Lobster app was excellent, all pastas were very good, but we were not blown away. Orecchietti were too sweet for our taste. Bastianich Vespa wine was outstanding--we'd had it there before but they were out of it the last time we were there, so we were pleased they had it back. Meal was very slowly paced because they give you so much food. We wish they would go back to a la carte rather than the required tasting menu. The cannoli dessert was not a cannolo, it was pieces of the shell with a smear of the filling.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAt first impression, the restaurantAt first impression, the restaurant felt stilted and overly formal to out of town visitors, but the staff warmed as the evening progressed and we ended up having a lovely dinner with wine pairings that were exquisite. Especially impressed by the sommelier team's depth of knowledge and excellent pairings with the meal. Quite pricey but worth it for a special occasion.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection downtown.Del Posto is very possibly the best restaurant I have ever been to. My partner and I wanted a special dinner in the city and we certainly got it. It was a memorable, perfect evening. The service is second to none and the food superb. It's not cheap but worth every penny for that special night out.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is beautifullyThe restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a subdued elegance. The service was wonderful and the staff friendly . However, the food was a disappointment , especially considering the price. I would not recommend Del Posto for food lovers, and I would not return.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner, from theExcellent dinner, from the Amuses to the Desserts. In particular, the Lobster with basil leaves was superb. The service was as always excellent, including the helpful sommelier.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGoogle offer=bad serviceWe had the Prixe Fixe lunch at Del Posto.
I will skip over the A+ parts: food, and ambiance. Service was an A+ as well until we mentioned a Google Offer. Then it was a C+.
We asked our waiter about the google offer (free pasta sample) and they brought the manager over. He snootily agreed that we could use the deal, but was clearly turned off. After that, our food was brought out by busboys & the "proper waiters" never came over again, even though we saw them elaborately explaining the dishes they served other patrons, constantly checking on them & refreshing their napkins with each meal, removing crumbs from the table, etc.
Del Posto, if your 4 star fine dine establishment has a google offer, dont be offended when ppl use it!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne has great expectationsOne has great expectations for Del Posto, and they met everyone of them! What a terrific evening.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambience, food, not so muchThe most beautiful restaurant that I have ever been to. My antipasto, pasta and dessert were fabulous but the risotto and wild bass were disappointing. When I mentioned this to our waiter, he responded that these dishes were "subtle". I think in this case subtle is a euphemism for bland.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely perfect diningAbsolutely perfect dining experience!!! One of the few restaurants in New York where there is enough room between tables that not only do you thoroughly enjoy the wonderful food, you can also enjoy your guests.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTreat yourself, it's worth it.It lives up to its reputation. The dining room is magnificent, and was thoroughly enjoyed as they are fewer and harder to come by nowadays. From the moment you enter, the staff is attentive and helpful. Being in Manhattan, you're aware of the premium price which accompanies all products and services. You should feel comfortable knowing your visit to Del Posto is worth the premimum price.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurant withOutstanding restaurant with amazing service. A must to eat at.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMabsolutely fabulous everyabsolutely fabulous every time i go there its better than the last4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to Del Post and our second time doing the chefs tasting menu. As before the the food was exceptional and the service impeccable. The Luna Piena with with white truffle butter was divine. Would definitely visit again on a return trip to NYC.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn amazing family night at Del PostYes, I said Del Posto is kid-friendly. With two kids, ages six and seven, we rarely get out for a really nice meal. We took a chance on Del Posto, while I was in town for work, and it was a huge success. Thanks to a wonderful patient staff, we made it through a four hour dinner pretty gracefully (& gratefully). The kids delighted in being treated like real people, from having their own menus, to having a selection of drinks to choose from, to getting plates that looked like their parents'. Agnolotti, salad with truffled dressing, and the pork trio were all amazing, as was everything I poached from other plates. We will be back, perhaps without the kids for a more romantic evening.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dinner!!! The staffFabulous dinner!!! The staff was great, we even got a tour of the kitchen. I would hope every kitchen that I eat in is kept as immaculate!!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful experience,What a wonderful experience, we enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere.

Robert4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs expected... WOWI've been looking forward to trying Del Posto for a long time and Chef Abdoo and his team completely knocked the cover off the ball for us. From the extensive wine list ("the Bible" as our server called it) to course after course of perfectly prepared food I couldn't have been happier with the experience. We were surprised by the avant garde style and incredible mixes of flavors and spices that were incorporated into a 4 hour meal that somehow flowed perfectly and felt like every dish belonged after prior. Especially of note was the Orecchiette with Lamb Neck Ragu, Orange Carrots & Toasted Rye.This is a must try restaurant if you are in the mood to lighten your wallet on what will surely be one of the best Italian meals of your life4/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
