Our server, Jonathan, was amazing. Appropriately engaging with us, while being entertaining. The food was amazing. The cost was appropriate for a special occasion, and the food was worth it.

We were seated in a side room, which did not give us the full ambience of the main room.

However, the 20 ounce dry aged ribeye was phenomenal. I have eaten at many steakhouses across the US and this was definitely in the top 5.

French onion soup was superb as was the steak tartare.

The best part of the evening however, was not even the food, which was fantastic.

The BEST part was the service delivered by Lance. My girlfriend is from the Philippines and recently passed her US Citizenship test. Lance was personal, attentive and an absolute joy. He was overjoyed to hear that we were celebrating her success. Incredibly nice person with impeccable service. Wonderful food recommendations as well. I cannot speak highly enough about the level of care and attentiveness he provided.

Drinks were very good as well. My Makers Mark Private Reserve Manhattan hit the spot.

Will definitely return next time I find myself in the Madison area.

Glad to find Delmonico's still at the top of its game. Great service from Jonathan, epic wedge salad, wonderful steak, and even a free glass of wine because I had to wait a bit for my table.

My 10oz med rare filet came to the table med to well done...it was dry and tasteless.
Never experienced a $50 piece of meat so bad...no comparison to steaks at Rare's, which will be my choice to go for dinner. Service was slow...due to not enough wait staff.

Superb. Will be back. Two weeks after reopening and they nailed it. Keith, the general mangers ensured proper seating was maintained while balancing a new wait staff. Food was fantastic. Service outstanding. Brady was a star performer in his recommendations and understanding of our meal questions. Go there! You will return again and again

Just OK. We were ushered to our table which was located in the "Private Dining" room. It was as aesthetically pleasing as a closet. We ordered the Burrata for an appetizer and it was pretty good. My husband and son ordered steaks and they both were good - cook perfectly. My daughter and I ordered the fish - Halibut - cold, dry, not good, Trout - just OK. The potato sides were all cold. For dessert we ordered the Grasshopper and Brandy Alexander - taste was good, but maybe they sat at the bar too long - they were warm which is odd for a dessert drink. Service was good - he had his hands full as our room had a group that was in for prom. Overall, if it's a steak place, order the steak. After a $325+ bill it was Just OK.

Johnny Delmonico's was probably the best restaurant we've tried in Madison. Everything from the service to the food, it was all very well done. The steaks, and drinks we had were perfect. Would highly recommend this restaurant for your next dinner getaway.

We went for a birthday dinner for a friend. Our server was so awesome- I forgot his name but he made a joke about being an Irish catholic and the drinks. Lol bartender was great as well. Food was delish and came out quickly. Thank you!

We had to make sure we dined here one last time prior to their shut down due to COVID - we are hopeful (restaurant as well) that they will be able to reopen. Everything from the drinks - Delmonico Old Fashioned, Bourbon Sour (made with egg whites) and the Filthy Martini were amazing, the appetizers delicious, the steak tender, the scallops melted in your mouth and the creme brulee trio marvelous. Cannot say enough about this Madison staple - please re-open when this insanity is over. Downtown Madison needs you!

This was my first visit and I was impressed. I had the Bleu encrusted mignon and Brussels sprouts in gruyere and bacon. Even the bread was delicious. Of extra mention was the adherence to COVID guidelines by both the business and the other patrons, which I did not see in other places in Wisconsin.
