    We drove to Philly from NY to spend the day with a friend for his birthday. After reading reviews, we selected Delmonico's for dinner. WOW! One of the best flavored steaks I've had and the crab cake appetizer was incredible. All of the sides were amazing as well (especially the corn!). Will find a reason to return!

Of all the dynamics and features, the food was actually the most notable. The crab cake appetizers, french-onion soup, and aged steak was a perfect fit.

    This was our fourth visit, and for a change we dined in the cocktail lounge. The ambiance was excellent, including a fireplace. The bar menu is, as expected, much shorter than the regular dining selections, but more than adequate and substantially less costly. Our cocktails were very generously sized and quite a bargain. Our shared order of calamari was delicious, as were our entrees. The manager/maitre d' was, as usual, most gracious. and we are placing this restaurant among the top places on our "Return Soon" list.

    I had a very good time at Delmonico's. We went on a Monday night, so there were only a few other tables occupied. The waiter was a bit aggressive in trying to get us to order drinks, desserts, etc., but he was friendly. And the service was prompt. The lump crab cocktail was well-presented on a top of a bed of ice and delicious too. My 12oz filet was good and so were the cauliflower/brussel sprout sides.

    in fairness, we tried delmonico's on new year's eve, so maybe they weren't in top form that night. the room was crowded - with mostly a much older (age 75+) crowd. service was extremely slow - understandable i guess on a holiday, but a good restaurant should be able to handle a busy night. the waiter rarely checked on us or refreshed drinks as we waited almost 2 hours for our meals. the food itself was just mediocre. lobster tails a bit fishy and rubbery...rack of lamb nothing special. won't bother coming again.

    My good friend and I chose this restaurant to have a meal in a more upscale environment were we would be able to appreciate the food and the conversation. This was just that place! The waiter was extremely nice and the Ambiance was perfect. My only complaint would be that our meal took so long to come. But, fortunately, it did not matter much since we were playing catch up. We really enjoyed the experience! And, I could see myself returning with my husband.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 6/25/2010
    We didn't enjoy Delomonico's as much as we did the last time we were there - about 2 years ago. The dining room has been remodeled and has a more relaxed lounge feel, however the service was very much lacking - not enough wait staff to work an entire dining room. We had a 6:30 reservation and walked out at 9:40 and did not have dessert. This includes waiting 15 mins for forks to eat the salad. The food price was significantly lower,however we were not WOW'd like we were previously. I would say it was slighlty above average. We would take the old dining room, wait staff and menu from 2 years ago as opposed to the more modern lounge of today. It was a spontaneous decision to go to dinner - we just wished the experience was better.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    The food was absolutely great. From the appetizers to the perfectly cooked steaks, we couldn't ask for more. Our waitress seemed like a little testy in the beginning, but warmed up through our meal. The only downfall was that there was a wedding going on in the next room and the walls are paper thin. I could hear every word of The Black Eyed Peas song and the bass was even worse. Thankfully we were pretty much done our meal because it would have been really annoying if we had to sit through that the whole time.

    SuburbanFoodie
    Dined on 2/13/2010
    As far as I'm concerned, Delmonico's is a hidden gem. The steak and the service were absolutely phenomenal, as were the salads. The servers and maitre D' went out of their way to be accommodating and helpful. And get this, it's easier to get here, less crowded and a bit less expenpensive than the competition (I like that they charged $2 for a soda - that sounds minor, but is shows they are not trying to bilk you on the little stuff). For a great steak, less hassle and more affordable meal, go here. As for ambiance - it's perfect for a night out, but if you are trying to impress a client, go for an extremely special event or impress a first date, the atmosphere is good to very good, but not exquisite. But, overall, I loved it.
