    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!

    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.

    The dining area was full of senior citizens, the food was dated, as was the decor. I had the bacon wrapped scallops (circa 01), and an 8 oz filet. I asked for mid rare. My steak was cooked medium and it seemed like it was done by a backyard BBQ. It was charred, and had chunks of day I had to spit out. Chewy as well. Would not go back.

    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.

    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.

    I had high hopes for this place because of the great reviews but as soon as you walk in you realize that if you're not over 70 you won't fit in. The crowd was elderly, the setting was very old hotel decor, the service was polite but slow. We arrived at 7:30 for our reservations and had three courses by 11. We were the last table there simply because they never brought us a check. The food was delicious and the menu was great, but I was looking for something a little more hip and modern.

    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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/8/2013
    I'm a steakhouse kinda guy and I usually judge a steakhouse by its ribeye. Delmonicos did not disappoint. My steak was cooked perfectly. A nice thick cut, bone-in delmonico with a little char on the outside and consistent marbling inside. It was so delicious I finished the whole 18oz portion. Though it was not the best I've ever had, it was very near the top. The calamari was great, but the sides were just okay. Service was excellent, while ambiance was asgood as it can be while still knowing you're in a hotel restaurant. As far as Philly steakhouses go, its not as good as butcher and singer, but makes Ruth's Chris look like a McDonald's.

    Two big complains: 1. My steaks and my girlfriend's were both charred. My steak did not come out medium rare as specified (hers did, in spite of the charring) 2. I ordered peppercorn sauce for my steak and did not receive it with the entree, I had to request it. Other than that, the service as good (not excellent because of the peppercorn sauce). The waiter was very nice, and knowledgeable about the menu. The service was prompt as well. The last time I ate here, the steaks were perfect, so this is probably an anomaly.

    Was disappointed that we were seated at a table by the open entry which is on the first floor, when the doors to the hotel n restaurant were opened we felt the wind and cold air, asked to be moved.....they closed one of the glass doorsand didn't offer to move us......and there were plenty of other tables at that time....... when making the reservation had mentioned it was my wife's birthday.....and we were celebrating as a family etc.....had to remind staff....they said they had it in the computer but didn't notice it etc., but just to mention it to the waitress ......appeared to me that uness you were a regular returning customer, you received less attention..........which is difficult to accept when you are paying close to $400.

    We were very disappointed with Delmonico's. While the food was good, the waitstaff were extremely rude. Our entered arrived before we were finished with our appetizers and our waitress very rudely announced that we would need to move our appetizer plates to make room for the entered. While we were rushed through the appetizer course, we were made to wait an extremely long time for the check to arrive. Given the other restaurant options in this price range, I will not be returning to Delmonico's.

    I was disappointed with Delmonico's. Not because the waiter made an error and brought a filet instead of a rack of lamb, but because the steak I had lacked flavor or seasoning. Of course it was unpleasant that all of us at the table were finished before they brought the lamb, but they did offer another round of drinks.Overall,I would say it was overpriced for the product.

    It was our first visit, and we were meeting out of town relatives. The whole experience was superb...from checking in with the hostess, being seated to dessert. The waitstaff was attentive, but not overly so and knowledgeable. All of our our appetizers, entrees, and the one dessert that was ordered were delicious. We would definitely recommend it to others and go back ourselves. Also, the prices for the food and wine were really a great deal based on our extensive dining out experiences in the Philadelphia area and South Jersey suburbs.

The only disappointment was that even though when I made my reservation I noted we would be celebrating my boyfriend's birthday, and were asked by several staff if we were celebrating anything - which we were, me getti g a new job in addition to my boyfriends birthday - no acknowledgment was made. No candle or "Happy Birthday" in dessert or anything. Kind of a bummer, but our steaks were phenomenal!
