  • "Great portions, nice wine list. Better if had a full bar. Would go back."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 is the best restaurant in Rapid City for a great cut and prepared steak. Always done perfectly to order!"

  • "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."

  • "Came for lunch with my sister who's from Denver. I had the lunch special which was blackened salmon with yummyness and bernaise on a toasted focaccia bread and French onion soup. It was divine! Oh- and the Pinot noir was so good with it!"

  • "The only down side can be their seating, sometimes it gets a little full and you don't really have a lot of privacy from the table next to you, however it doesn't sway my opinion that it is great food and service. Will eat there again."

  • "First off just let me state Delmonico never disappoints my wife and i. The food is outta this world i always enjoy the lamb or chicken. The service is awesome I've never had a bad waiter or waited very long to be greeted. Keep it up guys you rock and ill always be coming back for more!"

  • "We went to dinner on valentines day and to my surprise it was very organized and they had our reserved table ready right away..... The prime ribs was amazing and our sever was always checking on us but not in an annoying way. Perfect romantic dinner!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Delmonico used to be a family favorite for occassions or just a couples night out. The quality of service and food has declined over the last 6 months. The menu isn't large, which is fine except that what used to be a couple of different specials is now only a single pasta special, which wasn't anything too special, and two of the regular items weren't available. It will be a long time before we revisit to see if things have improved again."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "This was my first time eating at Delmonico Grill before. It was strongly recommended by a friend to go here and I'm glad I did. The items on the menu were a little expensive, but well worth the price. The food was very delicious! My date was impressed and we had a great time. Awesome food, great atmosphere, excellent service."

    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Certainly the best all around restaurant in Rapid City for menu, service, and quality is Delmonico's. While it's sister restaurant, Talley's, is more creative and adventuresome with its menu, appealing more to serious foodies, Delmonico's is the safe bet that will appeal to all. They especially excel at steaks."

  • "We had driven from Massachusetts on our way to Wyoming. This was our 3rd stop. We found the Delmonico Grill on Yelp. It was the most delicious steak I have had to date! Tender,flavorful with a savory topping of carmelized onions and poblano peppers. The whole meal was fantastic.cooked to perfection. Great wine list too. What a find! I look forward to another visit on my drive east."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Delmonico on our one year anniversary and our entire experience was excellent! We were seated in a dark, cramped corner as first but were quickly moved to a cute little booth in the middle of everything, very cool! Our appetizer was delicious - Calamari with Hot Peppers - and our champagne and wine were equally fantastic. The French Onion soup was tasty! Not your average thrown-together stew that most restaurants do. And our ENTREES were perfect! My boyfriend had the lamb chops & I had the "On the Dolphin Green" ribeye. The presentation was elegant and the taste was unreal - so flavorful & enticing! As fine dining restaurant workers, we were incredibly impressed!"

  • "My husband ordered the rib eye steak and was served the prime rib special. The steak was inedible it was so tough. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Service was a little spotty but the food made up for it. The one annoyance we had was that the "specials" seemed to change as newer guests arrived, which made us feel we had missed out! Otherwise, the experience was wonderful and the selection of offerings was unparalleled by any other Rapid City restaurants we have tried. One note: this is a 2+ hour dining excursion so don't plan on hitting a movie afterwards."

  • "Just round the corner from Alex Johnson, where we stayed. Reserved online just an hour before we arrived, and well received and greeted, with pleasant and helpful server. Mixed clientele of couples and groups. Food was very good - though entree arrived within seconds of our appetisers being cleared which was too soon. And however is one supposed to eat this much? My Tenderloin Tips were perfect, and my wife enjoyed her enormous scallops - but the accompaniments were vast (and we do not get the idea of taking the cold leftovers home). The sides (which came on cold plates....) were also of significant proportions and we hardly touched them. Wines by the glass were limited but excellent. We we're finished and out inside an hour - too fast."
