    We went there for our anniversary and I was most pleased. I selected this restaurant as it provides excellent ambience and fine dining and it is my favorite restaurant in Rapid City. I usually order the scallops which are most excellent but this time had their special, the yellow snapper which I absolutely loved! The seasoning was perfect! I gave four stars as I was a bit disappointed with the bruchetta which had changed since I last had it there (perhaps under the old management) (was still good though just not as) but everything else…perfection! For a special occasion, this is a great choice!

    If you're a carnivore,you can't do much better than Delmonico Grill. Flavorful..proper degree of doneness..I resisted any topical additions to my steak (Blue cheese crust,kona rub etc.) fearful of mitigating that wonderful beef flavor so present in my rib-eye steak. I had the plain one, another at our table had the GreenDolphin Street rib-eye. He loved it but commented,"too many mushrooms". I prefer my beef unadulterated and was NOT disappointed. Excellent ice cream offerings for dessert. These change everyday,almost,and are the perfect size to top off a stellar

    Very good steak, everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Our sides and salads were delicious and well proportioned; definitely add the bacon to the wedge salad! The local art work on the walls is a nice touch and provides a gallery feel to the dining experience. We've been to Delmonico Grill a few times now and have not been disappointed.

  • Dinner at Delmonico's
    ER32082VIP
    Dined on 9/8/2014
    We were in the Rapid City area for sightseeing. It was also the occasion of our anniversary. On the basis of reviews mainly on Open Table, we selected Delmonico's for our anniversary dinner. Service was good, but the food was only fair. In my wife's shrimp dish, the shrimp smelled a little off and the temperature of shrimp did not match that of the sauce. Her potato side dish seemed to have been unevenly heated in a microwave. My filet of beef was good. The best part of my meal was the special mozzarella and tomato salad. Also, "smart casual" for dress code is probably an overstatement.

  • A Bit Disappointing
    TucsonVisitor
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    Being out-of-towners, we decided to dine at Delmonico on the strength of its reviews and appeal of its space. I had a filet; my wife had seafood. Service was O.K., but not great. No big deal. But getting one's filet overcooked is a big deal, especially at a restaurant that specializes in beef (med-well when ordered med-rare). Smashed pot side was excellent. Salads were generally fine, although they committed the cardinal sin with my wife's (drowning it in dressing). Housemade ice cream was average at best. In sum, the dining experience was a bit of a disappointment and certainly not worth the price. But it's not far off track. Some minor adjustments could raise this establishment to top shelf.

    We were traveling through Rapid City,South Dakota with our friends. We wanted to have a special celebration for a very special lady. The food was outstanding. The best steaks anyway bar none. The hostess was very cordial and our table was ready as soon as we walked in. She knew it was a birthday celebration and asked me who was the lucky birthday person (discreetly). Our waitress introduced herself and took excellent care of our table. Every course was served correctly and she was most attentive to our table. It was a fantastic evening. We will keep this fine restaurant in our travel log and will make a return visit to Rapid City.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

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.
