    Our server was polite and attentive, but did not introduce himself. Food was excellent except our steaks were not cooked as ordered. I ordered medium and I received it quite rare. The rest of the meal was delicious!

    The meal was superb. Plenty to chose from which made it hard to decide but would recommend the filet. We also indulged in desserts which were wonderful. The waitress was simply delightful.

    It was delightful to go to Johnny Delmonico’s for our 51st wedding anniversary. We were greeted from the host to the bartender to the waiter with a happy anniversary. They treated us to a free beverage at the bar and champagne at our table. We felt like royalty. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the steak potatoes asparagus and Caesar salad. Would definitely recommend it. We had the perfect table by the window to view all of Madison.

    I would not recommend Johnny Delmonico's at this time. This was once an excellent restaurant but in recent years (beginning pre-pandemic) it has declined. The major issue has been the food. The steak was very, very rare (ordered med rare) with mediocre flavor. It was to be served with a compound butter but was not. The tuna tartar had poor flavor. The anchovies on the salad were very fishy and not fresh at all. The lobster was overcooked but still had decent flavor. The risotto was definitely overcooked. The service was very, very good as it has always been. The place is in desperate need of some changes in the kitchen and will hopefully get that help soon. Currently, it is absolutely not worth the cost of dining there. We will keep our eyes on it and will happily return when improvements have been made.

    We came in dressed in jeans and hoodies - felt very under dressed. But the service and the food was so wonderful. Luckily we were sat by the window and had a lot of people watching enjoyment. (We live in the country and don’t get a lot of that). Often when food is presented beautifully on the plate, it can indicate mediocre food “dressed up”. This was not the case here. My oysters were ice cold, my steak has crisp edged but cooked perfectly and flavorful. I highly recommend ordering the ribeye.

    I’m not sure the space is good for a busy Mother’s Day brunch. It was crowded and there were a number of times items were out (prime rib, shrimp, French toast). For $60pp I was hoping for a bit more.

    My husband and I have eaten at JD's several times and have always been over-the-moon thrilled with the food and service. Sadly, we were disappointed this time. The service was spot-on but the steak was tough. And by tough I mean, we had to saw through to eat it. Not what you expect for a $76 bone-in ribeye. The crab cakes were fine but very celery-forward vs. crab. I will say the wedge and hashbrowns were delish!

    We like Johnny Delminico's. The welcome is warm and real. The wait staff is very professional. In particular the calamari appetizer is amazing, and among the best anywhere. We also liked the mushroom risotto appetizer. The martini is steakhouse size and quality. I had the ribeye and found it quite good but just a skosh short of the prime beef standard I expect.
