Diner Reviews
  • "We had made a reservation for 6:30. We ordered our food by 6:45 but did not receive it until 7:55! Our waitress had "friends" show up and were seated next to us. These people had been golfing all day and had plenty to drink already (we know that because they were not quiet). This is not the place that obnoxious drunk people should be dining AND getting better service. We don't often treat ourselves to a nice meal and considering the menu is very pricey (food is worth it), you expect to have a good experience. Instead we were late to a comedy show we planned on going to at 8:30 but apparently didn't leave enough time for the drunk table."

  • "One of the gems in downtown Rapid City for a high end restaurant. I have dined here a number of times and have always found the food to be excellent as a well as the service. Would highly recommend it for those who want a fine dining experience."

  • "On our quick trip to Mt Rushmore and The Black Hills we found this wonderful restaurant. Our steaks were perfectly done and the service was attentive but not overbearing. What a great find! PS, we have eaten all over the world...."

  • "Live locally although first time diner for evening. Had early reservation at 6:30, took a booth for seating. By 7 pm, several tables filled, although noise level was low. Excellent waiter (Wes) and prompt service. Food quality was very good and sides are large. Excellent choice for downtown evening dining in Rapid City. Wine and beer only, although very good wine selection."

  • "Delmonico's continues to deliver a great dining experience. We are currently stuck on their beef filet with a Kona coffee rub. I don't know how one could find a better steak anywhere in the US, seriously. At the moment, they are featuring farm fresh tomatoes and other vegetables that make the starters and sides as delicious and the entree. Add great service, thanks to Dawn, and you have a dining experience worth every penny!"

  • "We live in Manhattan and spent a couple of days in Rapid City during a visit of Mount Rushmore / tour of the Badlands. We are big foodies and were a little apprehensive as to what restaurant options we would find in South Dakota but after meals at Delmonico Grill and its sister restaurant Tally's Silver Spoon soon realized that we were actually in for a treat on the foodie side of this trip as well... Every dish we had was thoughtfully composed, with creative twists that were executed to perfection. Service was amazing, staff is thoroughly trained on where the produce comes from, what it tastes like, wines... everything! In short, we were blown away and will most definitely dine at these restaurants again when we return to Rapid City..."

  • "Considering the price point of this restaurant, the food wasn't good. We both had steaks and they were poor. Surprising to say the least."

  • "Everything about my/our dining experience at Delmonico Grill was first rate, from making an online reservation through appetizers, dinner, dessert and settling the bill. On arrival, we were promptly seated, and the wait staff proceeded to efficiently handle multiple drink, appetizer, menu inquiries and our orders. We started with appetizers (bruschetta, calamari, scallops), which were all good - the scallops in particular were outstanding. For the entrees, we all generally stuck with beef, and we were pleased with our choices. In each case, it was prepared as ordered and was delicious - and BIG. Service was efficient and created an overall great dining experience. It's not cheap, but, as is often the case, you get what you pay for."

  • "Great find for first time diners visiting Rapid City. The quality was outstanding, portions were very large, and service was excellent. The salads were delicious. I had the Green Dolphin Ribeye which was beautifully marbled and flavorful. Nice mix of flavors with the pablano chiles and ample criminis. The other three in our party had the Tenderloin Tips, a Gorgonzola version not on the menu that was a special that night. Note to others that these are served with a perfectly al Dente Spinach Fettuccine. Got great reviews from our party. Nice wine list and the coffee was outstanding!"

  • "My wife and I (both retired) were visiting Rapid City, and we took her cousin & husband to this restaurant for dinner. Food was very good, especially the 7 oz steak. Server initially mixed up salad and soup orders, but part of the error got corrected. Only real complaint is that this restaurant is VERY PROUD of its homemade salad dressings -- if you like ranch, thousand island, French, Russian or other main stream salad dressings, you won't get them at this restaurant. Our tab was $100 + $20 tip for a meal for four where everyone drank water and no one had desert or coffee. But we only go out for dinner once/twice per year, so the cost is OK."

  • "We absolutely love Delmonico restaurant. Great menu with options, wine list is wonderful, and if you want steak, order The Delmonico! The best bone in ribeye in South Dakota."

  • "The restaurant does not have a bar. I didn't see that anywhere before making my reservation; I wouldn't have eaten there if I had known. The bread and butter were good and the wine, while a bit overpriced, was fine. I wasn't impressed with the food, though. My soup was huge – enough for a meal in itself – but I found it bland. I ate less than half of it. My main course, a rack of lamb, was fairly expensive, and I found it tough and flavorless. The ambiance and service were both okay, but not exemplary."

  • "This was an excellent dinner recommendation. I had one of the best Rib eyes I have ever eaten. It is a quiet upscale restaurant on the main street of Rapid City."

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. For the two of us the total bill was just over $100.00. I had a rib eye steak and my wife had the chef's special - a wague steak. We each ate about half the meal. The steaks were ok - had way better for much less at other local restaurants. Service was great - food below average."

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to dine at a romantic restaurant with wonderful food. Needless to say, Delmonico Grill did not disappoint! The restaurant's noise level was quiet, which we definitely prefer. We were greeted in a friendly and timely manner and our waiter was very attentive with wonderful timing in regard to delivery of all courses. We began with a suggested and shared appetizer of brochette with Ahi tuna, goat cheese and drizzled with a touch of red pepper aioli...wonderful! We each had a garden salad followed by 11 oz. filet mignons both cooked rare and very tender. We were surprised with a free dessert for our anniversary! We highly recommend Delmonico Grill to travelers and locals alike. "

  • "After many years living in Rapid City decided to try this restaurant on a rainy night. Service was slow and methodical. Food was very good, but not without some minor issues. The Cobb salad was 'drenched' in dressing and served on a small plate. Almost impossible to eat without making a mess. The bruschetta starter was good, but the only three of the toast points were grilled … the remainder were warmed with a drizzle of EVOO. Tenderloin tips were okay, but had too much connective tissue. Finally, the duck confit was not served fully disclosed. I asked what came with it and got the answer, "grilled figs." No mention of the mash or grilled onion (or shallot…couldn't tell). Decent dining experience. but not sure if we will return."

  • "It's hard to go wrong at Delmonico's when it comes to getting a well prepared, great cut of steak. I would compare Delmonico's to any Ruth Chris Steakhouse at half the price! "

  • "This was our first visit, and it was exceptional. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection. My filet was very thick and they did not butterfly it, and it was cooked perfectly. I don't know why some restaurants insist on butterflying a thick cut of meat and some restaurants do not and cook it perfectly, but it was probably one of the best steaks I had. I also ordered the soup of the day; asparagus carrot soup. A cream based soup, very smooth and just the perfect balance of flavors. The service was attentive but not overbearing. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Loved the overall atmosphere and very friendly staff. The salmon was wonderful and the carrot soup was probably the best soup I have ever eaten. The prices were a bit steep, so probably will only go back for a special occasion like anniversary."
