A word from Delmonico's
Delmonico's began as the first restaurant in the United States and has had a profound impact on American dining tradition. Our setting is where nearly two centuries of notable poets, affluent socialites, celebrities and presidents have celebrated in the splendor that is Delmonico's. Delmonico's welcomes Executive Chef Bill Oliva our kitchen. While preserving the classic dishes such as Lobster Newburg, Delmonico's Steak and Baked Alaska, Bill brings a level of culinary sophistication to Delmonico's with his addition of creative seafood offerings and other inventive dishes.

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went to this restaurant for Restaurant Week and had a really nice lunch. The prices run high, so this was a great opportunity to take advantage of the special prices."

  • "Terrific quality, well prepared. Service was the downfall ... seemed as though our existence bothered our waiter. Not nasty, but curt and humorless. Too bad they keep the staff around just because they've been there for a long time. (The salad was way too small.)"

  • "I would highly recommend the lamb obviously, but the entire meal was excellent. My husband had the restaurant week menu. I had a la carte. Wine is expensive, but the list is expansive..."

  • "I went out for a girls night out during restaurant week. sometimes during restaurant week I would feel like I'm being skimped on the full restaurant's effect. However this was not the case at Delmonico's. I simply was treated like a queen. The food was awesome the service was awesome the ambience is beautiful. it's a perfect place to take a date or a special friend that came over for a weekend in New York City. Want to impress a boss or client. Delmonico!!! it is the place to feel really good."

  • "Delmonico's is one of the oldest restaurants in the country and has a famous reputation having been featured in many works of fiction as the dinning place of numerous literary characters. Certainly, they are best known for the steaks of their creation. Visiting Delmonico's for dinner was long on our "to-do" list when visiting New York City. We must say that the experience did not disappoint. Great food, superb service, a wonderful wine list, and their famous Baked Alaska dessert made for a memorable evening."

  • "My wife had the razor clams and lobster newburg, I had the lobster cocktail and the Delmonico steak. We split the baked Alaska. Igor was our waiter. Fantastic food - best steaks on the planet, my lobster appetizer was outsized - a full size lobster! The lobster newburg had 2 full lobsters, and the baked Alaska was heavenly, unlike anything you've ever had. The service was extraordinary. The ambience just divine. Highly, highly recommended."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at Delmonico's and absolutely loved the experience. I had the signature Delmonico steak and she had the filet mignon. Both were prepared perfectly and tasted fantastic, the chefs are to be commended. The Wait Staff was pleasant, attentive and very warm. We each enjoyed the ambience and decore of the restaurant. I would highly recommend Delmonico's to anyone."

  • "the restaurant was half empty, staff stading around but had to wait to acually order. Probabelly we didn't look like 21 and that's why no one asked us if we care for wine or even want to see the menue... however the food was very good, what you should expect given the prices..."

  • "Our party of 6 was greeted by a friendly host and sitted promptly. We had visited the WTC that afternoon and felt Delmonicos was a fitting tribute to all that is great with NYC. Our waiter was attentive, polite with some NY humor thrown in. The steaks are excellent and we celebrated two birthdays with the world famous Baked Alaska. Highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Lamp was great. Lobster was too tough, avoid one. Good service. In a great building. Atmosphere was more casual than I expected. (no dress code when we were there) Our waiter was great but another waiter was alright."

  • "Delicious, fresh, gracious and grand. Although very pricey, Delmonico's will deliver a truly fine dining experience. Gentlemen unobtrusively cater to you in a peaceful, refined yet relaxed, dining room from another era. The food, reminiscent of that era, is clearly updated for a more sophisticated palate. The burratta salad was delicate, the dressing balanced to bring out subtle flavors of roasted peaches, arugula and burratta cheese. The melt in your mouth filet mignon was perfectly seared and simply seasoned with a dash of coarsely ground salt. The carrots, a surprising favorite, were crisp and surrounded by a delightful assortment of vegetables. Be sure to treat yourself to the baked Akaska, a fanciful finish to a dreamlike meal."

  • "Food was as expected. Steak portions humongous. Old time atmosphere with older crowd. Waiters all very stand-offish and not welcoming. The only reason we went was because we got a gift certificate."

  • "Delmonico's delivers on its promise to be one of New York's premier culinary destinations. If you're in the mood for a to-die-for steak, there's no better place to go."

  • "I can honestly say that in all my many years this one one of -- if not the best meal I ever had. I took my husband to Delmonico's to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I had made the reservation via OpenTable and noted the special occasion. They greeted us warmly and genuinely (we're a same-sex couple) and remembered it was our anniversary. I have never noticed how much temperature plays an important role in taste -- it was perfect. Every bite was a symphony -- I don't know how else to describe it. GREAT food, excellent service, beautiful restaurant. Worth every penny."

  • "Our reservation was made based on a segment and recommendation on The View. I ordered the lobster newburg as I love lobster and it is a house specialty. It arrived only slightly warm, almost cold. I sent it back! This is the first time that I have ever had to do this in over 60 years of dining out around the world. Other guests received the same entree on hot plates before mine was finally returned on a hot plate. The Delmonico steak had more fat than expected! Some of the rolls were very hard while others were fine. The Delmonico potatoes were excellent; and the baked Alaska was quite good. The waiter tried his best, but it was hard to make up for such a poor start to the meal."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "While the service was excellent and the restaurant beautiful, though a bit loud, the food was disappointing. The most disappointing was the Delmonico's steak, of which we ordered three. Each one was tough and chewy and almost impossible to cut especially since they give you a butter knife rather than steak knife. Appetizers (crab cake; shrimp risotto, bacon, and foie gras) were ok; nothing special. Sides were good; I like the corn and creamed spinach. Desserts were excellent (baked Alaska; cheesecake; and mango tart). Love the venue and service so much that I wish the food was better."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My overall review score is heavily weighted towards our satisfaction with the food. This was my first visit to Delmonico's. Decided to try their specialties: Delmonico Steak, and Lobster Thermidor. Steak had good flavor and was tender. I've had equal or better steaks at other restaurants. Garlic mashed potatoes were average. Caesar salad was a real disappointment. The poached egg on top was unique but did not save a very bland salad. Croutons seemed store-bought. My son stated his crabcake was very good. However, the lobster tail in his Lobster Thermidor was tough. In summary, the food here seems to be hit and miss depending on what you order. At this price point, all the items should be excellent. Better options are available in NYC."

    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The standard Delmo's fare. I like this restaurant for business meetings; because tables are spaced to allow private conversations. I preferred it when there was more variety on the lunch menu but of course most guests will go for the classic Delmonico's steak. Though I can only handle one course at this palce if I take the steak. I don't believe the standard is quite as good as in years gone by, I'm detecting over-salting in most dishes now. Wine list is legendary for those with enough bucks to go there. The service is first class."

  • "From the manager, to the servers, to the bartenders....doesn't get much better than this. You are 'family' after the first visit!"

  • "Prices are, what they are -- but you pay for what you get in NYC, and this is a NYC oldtime GEMSTONE! I love love love Delmonico. Their steak is too die for, their salads and appetizers are inventive, and their desserts sublime. I opted for a glass of house Cab, which was not "liquid gold" which is what I would have preferred, but the bottle list was a bit pricey when your guest is not drinking the same as you...... Still will go back... for that OLD WORLD NYC CHARM AT IT'S BEST!!"

  • "I have eaten here a few times with my husband and the staff was always attentive. This time I went with my daughter and I felt the waiter was more interested in the tables with couples or men. He did not ask if we wanted to hear the specials. I had to ask to have our wine poured and he rarely came by to see if we needed anything."

  • "I heard that Wall Streeters have come to prefer this spot. Maybe lunch is better, but for dinner, I would pass. My Delmonico steak was just OK. Carb cake was pretty good but a bit bland. Overall, did not meet my expectation considering the prices."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Its a good place but average for a NYC steakhouse. Its more of the history that drives you there and the curiosity. Not worth $50 for the filet. Too much fat around it. $8 for fries and some Hellman's spicy mayo?"

  • "Even of the Delmonico steak was not tender, perfectly seasoned, and cooked to my exact specification. Even if the brussels sprout accompaniment was not well thought out (sautéed with onions and bacon bits). Or the banana gelato brings a creamy satisfaction to the Baked Alaska finish. It is worth going to this iconic restaurant steeped in American culinary history. Prompt and courteous service accompanied my experience here."
