What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.1

Del Posto is one of the best special occasion restaurants in New York City. Think of it like a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Host is below average.
Bathrooms are embarrassing. Not nice. May as well be from Starbucks — not a place I’m paying $1000 dinner for two.

Waiter was five star.
Food experiences was five star.
Wine selection five star.

I hesitated to give five stars, but it is difficult to find a reason to reduce either the food or service rating, both of which were excellent. However, if you factor in the pretentious display and less than beautiful aesthetics, that did detract from the experience. For instance, our sommelier suggested the wine selection we made, from the Bastianich vineyards, no less, was substandard (because it was under $100?) - it was excellent, BTW. The description of dishes delivered to the table could have been lifted from an episode of Portlandia...funny in delivery, but not really all that helpful. This was definitely a "once and done" experience, no need to return. The food was excellent, but the price did not match the overall experience.

My husband and I were blown away by Del Posto. This restaurant exceeds the hype and is perfect for any special occasion.

The service is outstanding and the food is probably the best Italian we have ever had. Even the bread is amazing. We opted out of the tasting menu and ordered several items across the a la carte menu ranging from pasta to cheese to crudo. We loved everything and highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this restaurant and have dined here 5-6 times. The food is always very good but our most recent experience was a bit disappointing. We loved the Ribeye and the Lamb entrees as well as the primi pastas However, my wife ordered the Fusi Istriani pasta which was priced at $46 but did not realize that the wait person added the supplement which pushed the price up to $82.00 for just a pasta dish. It was simply not worth that kind of money. This really disappointed us. Service was good but slightly interruptive. We will come back but we will certainly be more careful to check the pricing on all of the dishes. It also appears that Del Posto has raised all of its prices to a level that seems excessive.

If you're looking for an Italian culinary experience in NYC, and are willing to shell out a few hundred dollars /person, then Del Posto should be your go-to. Excellent food, great service (although some of the wait-staff seemed a little too serious), and perfect atmosphere.

While the service was absolutely amazing, the food itself was just good (not great). Given the price ($480 for party of 2) and reviews, I had very high expectations. There are def better fine dining places in NYC.

Service impeccable! Wine amazing suggested by our sommelier. Some elements of the food were excellent, others mediocre.
App: Lobster and carne cruda (⭐️⭐️⭐️) Pasta: Girella and Cappellaci (⭐️⭐️)
Secondi: Pork trio (⭐️⭐️) Rib Eye (⭐️⭐️⭐️) Dessert (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)We chose the tasting menu and had better food at Mario Batali other restaurant Babbo. Personal feeling not worth the $$

Dining at Del Posto was a culinary delight! The staff were attentive and worked seamlessly together. There were special surprises along the way making it truly special. I have dined at several fine dining establishments and Michelin star restaurants and didn’t like one thing. After selecting a fairly expensive bottle of wine, the Sommelier brought the wine and decanted about an ounce in a separate glass. He only smelt it. Then, he poured a splash for me to taste, and continued to pour wine in our glasses. He wheeled the table away with the first glass of decanted wine. While we enjoyed the wine with our meal, another staff poured the last glass and left about another ounce in the bottle. At $100 plus a bottle, I would have expected the Sommelier to ask me if I would like the first pour left at the table. I don’t agree with the restaurant’s technique of wine decanting and tasting. I went to Eleven Madison and Acquavit the two nights previous and had a better experience with the wine selection and tasting. Overall, the courses selected were creative and delicious. Well done!
