    We were a party of 11. The service was only fair. Although the food was good, it wasn't great and the hotel lobby ambiance did not add anything to the meal. It would be hard to convince me that the meats were all prime and dry aged.

    This was a last minute reservation, so the fact that our table was at the walkway to the kitchen was unfortunate. Although the food was certainly acceptable, service was spotty and often too quick. The kicker, however, was the bill. My partner ordered a single espresso, something he has done in many restaurants. The charge was $9.00! SERIOUSLY. When he challenged the cost, it was reduced to $6 -- still extremely high. Cocktail prices were also quite high; really "center city" prices. Complaints to the manager, who had previously been solicitous, went nowhere. Left us with a very disappointed feeling.

    My wife and I have eaten here several times. The food is excellent. This visit was a little disappointing. The server handed us the wine list and mentioned some of the wines by glass weren't available. Of course the one and only wine my wife likes was only available by the bottle. Too pricey for us plus we wouldn't finish the bottle. I don't really have an issue with that but why not change your wine list when you change the policy? Her wine was on the list as available by the glass. This put a bit of a damper on our experience.

    One of the best restaurants I have experienced that is located in a Hotel. I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The crab cocktail appetizer is phenomenal and this is coming from someone who lived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland for many years. The service is great and they are very friendly and accommodating. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

    The physical / ambiance was nice, nothing extraordinary, but nice. The server did not communicate well, including in verbal volume. He had great difficulty understanding how we wanted to pay for the check. The quality of the food was fine, not exceptional. For the price the average experience cannot be justified. Other steakhouses will deliver as good, or better in all categories across the board, and do so at a more reasonable price.

    For some reason I thought it would be OK, walking in, but it turned out to be better then I though. Good steak, scallops, wine and sides. But everything was a little light on salt so good thing there was a salt grinder at the table. The couches in the middle of the restaurant where we where seated also could be washed (little stinky). But the food was good. Nice to be able to get a good steak outside the city.

    I frequently dine at restaurants on the higher end of the price spectrum and have become accustomed to good and great service. However, Delmonico's managed to jump to the top of my list of the UNWORTHY so-called "fine dining" restaurants for which they have been categorized. The service is poor, food is average, and prices are high. My guest and I waited nearly 20 minutes before anyone--server, water attendant, etc., even came to our table. This despite all of them having walked by us numerous times. In case you're wondering they were not busy--there were only 9 guests seated at 4 separate tables--so I assume we were invisible. The service went downhill from there.The bill was a whopping $139 for a meal that could been had any 2 star diner.

    The NY strip steak was perfectly cooked and seared with a nicely seasoned crust and flavor. The side dishes of mashed potatos and creamed spinich was a bit bland as was the mushroom gravy. With all the above noted, the steak was the reason for the trip and the highlight and worth returning for.

    Sometimes an average meal can be a great dining experience because the server was excellent. My visit to Delmonico's was great food made average by a poor server. You work in a steak house - how can you not know if the crab cakes are made from jumbo lump crab? How can you not know if the bar serves a particular brand. Get with it! The room is lovely The rack of lamb was terrific and the asparagus were very fresh. How about some competent servers to complete the meal?
