Great food for a hotel restaurant
I had a filet with peppercorn sauce and glazed carrots. The food and service were excellent. This restaurant is a little more upscale and much better than the typical hotel restaurant.

Great food, but off the beaten
Great food, but off the beaten path if your in downtown Philly. Delmonicos is hidden inside Hilton Hotel. Expected "hotel food", but pleasantly surprised. Previous reviews were right on - great food, great presentation. A bit pricey, but very good. Scallops with bacon and french onion soup started the meal, filet and chicken filled the middle and apple strudel and creme brulee. Definitely a recommend!

There is a lovely, warm ambiance and the steak is brilliant. The crabcake appetizer was also excellent

Every course was outstanding! Appetizers, salads, entrees and dessert. Service was good but a little slow. Overall we had a wonderful dining experience!

We have been going to Delmonico's for the past 4 years since my son was attending St. Joe's University. It is conveniently located in the Hilton on City Line Ave. There is valet parking too. My son graduated this past weekend and we headed there for a wonderful graduation dinner. The oysters were delicious, and the steak excellent. The service is always very good. I highly recommend Delmonico's and will miss going there.

Very nice alternative to Downtown
My wife and I were looking for quality restaurant that wasn't in Center City for our anniversary. Didn't want to deal with the traffic and parking. Delmonico's was a very solid choice for our wants. The prices weren't overly expensive and the food was very good. We especially recommend the calamari for an appitizer. It was some of the best that we've had. Be aware that when ordering side dishes, the portions are large enoug to share. My wife had the lamb chops and I had the 12oz fillet. Both were cooked perfectly to order.

Lovely evening with family
We stayed at the adjoining Homewood Suites, Delmonico is the Hilton's restaurant which is also part of the "compound". I agree with other reviewers that most of the diners were an older crowd. Our 2 kids were both able to find something on the menu they liked/loved easily. We had the chicken marsala, ribeye, filet, and crab cakes. In addition, the chopped salad, clams casino, and caesar salad. Also, the kids had the trio of sorbets, peanut butter bombe, and my husband had the creme brulee. The service was attentive, respectful, and patient. No complaints about our food at all--it was delicious. I would go back! It was a little pricey, but it was a special evening so we planned for that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience this past Fri. evening with a party of 7, celebrating a special birthday. Food was delish, service was really lovely and noise level wasn't too bad.
Will go back!

Always a great meal
Delmonico's is conveniently located on City Avenue at the Hilton. Friendly valet parking greets you and the service at Delmonico's prides itself on being warm and attentive,. The food is always very good to excellent. Their steaks are particularyl great and are as good as Capitol Grille or Flemings, two restaurants you would also consider when dining at Delmonicos. ANother enjoyable evening!

Service was lacking
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?

The regular menu is pricey,
The regular menu is pricey, but wonderful. For a less expensive meal ask for the bar menu - Mon. to Friday.

I have eaten there many times
I have eaten there many times due to the fact it was close to my house and also where we worked. Our staff went there MANY TIMES and loved the service, food, and they had a great wine menu.

Excellent service and food
The food and service is impeccable at Delmonico. I love their desserts - fresh berries and cream. For an entree, you may want to try the steak, split a side with the guest, and try the calamari appetizer.

Nice hotel steak place
Nice hotel steak place, perfectly good, but probably wouldn't make a special trip there if I wasn't staying in the hotel anyway.

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.

Better than expected
Food was delicious and prepared as ordered. Service was friendly and prompt but not rushed. I do think it is a bit over priced.I would recommend this restaurant but would also mention price.

Surprised at How good it was
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.
