    We ordered prime rib for 2 and it only came on one plate. We had to separate it ourselves. Very tacky.

    We were very excited to try this restaurant as we had heard very good things about it. We had a very nice efficient waitress, however, we waited well over an hour for our food. My husband and I had both ordered medium rare steaks. When they arrived at our table we took our first bite and we both looked at each other and said these are cold. They were cooked to perfection however they were both cold as if they had sat somewhere and not even under a warmer. Our waitress took them back and they tried to warm them which the sauce was warm but the steak was still cold. They did end up taking 50 percent off our bill but we were both very disappointed. We will not be going back

    They sadly had to delay us due to situations out of there control i.e the city. But, they called me personally and made sure the new time worked as well as throwing in a free app. The food there was outstanding and flavorful which paired amazingly with the staff’s personality and experience with the food’s flavor. 10/10

    This was unfortunately a bummer for us. For what they charge we were expecting an amazing dining experience. We were sorely disappointed. To start they were out of the wine we requested. The server changed mid meal and the new server seemed a bit put out about it. They do not serve ranch dressing at all. That is my husbands favorite. A single 16oz dry age ribeye was $72, which is spendy but what we expect to pay for this level of meat preparation. We ordered 2 of them. When I order this type of steak I expect super tender and flavorful. What we got required actual sawing motion to cut through and a sore jaw from chewing. I actually had to take 2 pieces out of my mouth because they were so tough. I only ended up eating about 3 oz of the steak. My husband's steak was chared black on the outside and still cool and red on the inside. We both ordered medium and both were medium rare to rare. I would have sent them back, but we I have seen the movie Waiting too many times to send anything back. On a good note the french onion soup was delicious and so was the flourless chocolate torte. However the torte only came out with 1 single blueberry on top to help cut the sweetness of the chocolate. My husbands regular fries were so salty he didn't finish them. My shoestring truffle parm fries were so overdone they were more like chewing on toothpicks. Little to no truffle flavor. I also did not finish them. We both used the restroom. My husband said the men's room was surprisingly clean. Unfortunately the ladies room was not. Food in the sink, garbage on the floor, and had to use the squat and hoover maneuver to use the toilet. The service was mediocre at best. We were there for our 20 year anniversary. They asked the 3 tables around us why they were celebrating with dinner out, but did not ask us. Overall it was very underwhelming.

    It was recommended by family members. I tried the onion soup and it was good but on the salty side for my liking. I would have liked to have gotten a rib-eye steak but in a smaller size rather than the 16 oz. At our age our appetites have gotten smaller and I don't think taking the extra portion home and microwaving it would do it justice. The filet we ordered was done perfectly and very tender. The service was excellent and the ambiance was nice and not very loud. A good restaurant for special occasions. For a couple be prepared for a $100+ bill.

    Somewhat disappointed. I consider most of the food quality to be quite good, however rather small portions for the price. I especially enjoyed the fillet which was cooked and seasoned to perfection. My main complaint was slow, slow service. My guest and I spent nearly 1 1/2 hours to complete our dinner and I found it necessary to beckon for our waitress twice to inquire about late delivery of food. (she apologized once) I will advise they were busy; however it appeared to me they had adequate waitstaff on duty---was it the fault of the kitchen?? Will I return? I'm not certain. In summary, it was not the best experience and therefore I consider value for price paid to be lacking.

    It was our first time dining there. Great service! Our waiter did a fantastic job. The atmosphere was very nice for our date night and the food was outstanding as well. My steak was cooked perfectly and the French onion soup was delicious. The only critique I have is that my wife said that her chicken was a little dry. Overall it was a great experience.

    Great steakhouse and the wait staff is very attentive. The night we visited we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, easy to have a conversation. Wine pricing is very reasonable and a quality selection. We enjoyed the butterscotch pot de creme dessert so much we returned another night to enjoy it again! 😋 highly recommend this place.

    Sam, our server was great. Food took a while but we were not in a hurry. Medium steak was very rare and medium salmon was dry and over cooked. Salmon Oscar had about 5 small flakes of crab meat. Still a good meal but mildly disappointing.

    What used to be the place to go in town has not held up to expectations. Reservations were supposed to be at 7:15 we weren’t seated until 735. Our waiter did the best he could yet wasn’t extremely communicative. Food did not come out till 915. Pork chop was undercooked as well as the prime rib. I have had good experiences at this restaurant and was severely disappointed that my experience for my birthday. Manager said he wasn’t gonna make excuses yet he did. They did comp our meal and we took it to go. Prices are severely inflated. Over the last couple years we’ve been eating at home mostly. Don’t think I will be going back to this establishment

    The flourless chocolate torte was a small cake, not a slice of a torte. It was terrible - dry and we could taste the sugar grains. It was advertised as being served with berries (plural), we only got 1 blackberry.

    My brother & I had a long awaited bucket list trip to SD. Based in Rapid City, we found Delmonico on several lists as best in town since we're foodie people. So we dined there Saturday night, 10/15/2022. It was OK, but not worth the $$$ and we wouldn't plan to go back, at least for an expense meal. Server was nice but kept getting distracted, which means we didn't always see her. Too over 20 minutes for the Cheese Plate to be delivered. (We had to ask another server we found). Salad was decent. Also had the Delmonico - bone-in ribeye for 2 at $105. Once again was OK but not rememberable. Just not a ton of flavor for a piece of meat like that. We got full but I can't say I really enjoyed the experience. For the 2 of us we spent over $300 with wine. Staffing was not an issue as there were plenty of employees milling about - just not our server at times. In hindsight, would not go here again & would not recommend as a great place. We found a couple of other places in Rapid City that were far better for less coin.

    Unfortunately, Delmonico's simply did not live up to its pricing. The food is OK, but they are charging big city prices and not delivering. The service is pretty bad and we were even charged for someone else's table with waiter very confused. Would suggest going elsewhere.
