Every other time I’ve been it’s been so great. I think this time was average at best and poor for the price. Service was distant. Empty plates sat in front of us way too long. Some food was exceptional, some just average. They were not very attentive. I fear it’s lost it’s magic sadly.

Move over River Cafe...Del Posto just became my GO TO restaurant for special occasions.

To be honest, it started out a little rocky. The Maitre ‘d was inattentive and dismissive of my sister & me — but not to the men lined up BEHIND us. In fact, even though we’d been politely waiting to give him our names for what seemed like 10 minutes, he went around us and seated the men on line behind us. Really rude. He later apologized, said he was wrong — but that was not a great way to start.
Then, we asked for 2 drinks and waited exactly 25 minutes for them to arrive. We were told that there was “a mix-up” at the bar. Once again, they apologized — and said the drinks were complimentary. Another bad beginning but a nice touch.

Next, we were introduced to the Del Posto menu options: either 5 courses, or 8 — or an a la Carte menu. Seemed a little confusing and pricey but we’d schlepped to 85 Tenth Avenue from the UES, so we decided we might as well experience the 5 courses.

Thank goodness we did. That first course — seasonal vegetables in a little container sitting on Greek Goddess dressing — was maybe the best thing I’ve ever tasted in nyc. Prior to that, I must add, a mound of heavenly cheese/creme/olive oil arrived with a warm baguette. What followed was simply perfection. The pasta was like a pillow of sublime tastes. As was the chicken, the pork chop, the desserts, etc.

What began as a debacle, ended up being one of the best dinners I’ve ever had.

Can’t wait to go back.

One of our favorite NYC restaurants. Innovative Italian cuisine in a warm and classy room. A welcome respite after dining at Per Se (a complete disaster of a restaurant) the night before.

What a shame. Booked in advanced and we ended up changing our table size which they accommodated. Dinner was overpriced, our server rarely spoke to us.

Overpriced, overrated. Would not go back.

We had very very high expectations. The drinks especially the italian cookie were great. Service is impeccable as a true fine dining experience. We enjoyed our first course but that was it. We were disappointed with the lasagna it was charred which is a fancy way to say burnt tasting, and very acidic. I ordered short ribs and couldn't even eat it. It was served at room temperature and so fatty that I almost spit it out. My husband had pork chop and said it was ok. I am sorry to be negative but for such an expensive meal I cant let it pass.

Everything about the ambience of Del Posto was excellent. The staff, attentive and numerous, made for a fantastic experience.

One comment: the food in general was a bit over salted, which was surprising, as otherwise the pallet texture and flavor of all of our dishes, was superb.

The desserts were exceptionally flavorful, subtle, and impressive. Overall, a great meal, will certainly return for all the great things Del Posto offers.

Del Posto is a beautiful venue to dine at. I was so impressed with the food and price for a Michelin one star restaurant - it should be noted I went for lunch.

Walking into the restaurant you are struck by the beauty of the space. We had drinks at the bar and, like some classy restaurants, they transferred our bar bill to the table. This is a relatively small gesture but I really like that. The service was tremendous as was the food. I asked the sommelier to select a wine for us in a particular price range and he picked out a perfect one. Overall, the evening was very unhurried and everything was superb. The restaurant is a little bit pricey and I am generally not a fan of fixed price menus as I’d like to select my own food. However, the restaurant does a nice job in its selections. I would definitely recommend it to others

Food is just okay and definitely overpriced. I did the Captain's tasting menu and found it to be lackluster. If you plan to do a tasting menu, Gabriel Kruther, the Modern, and Atera are light years ahead of Del Posto and around the same price. I'd pass on this one

where do I begin? This has to be the BEST 4 star restaurant in New York, hands down...What a wonderful evening we had...The place is beautiful and elegant and the food is beyond amazing...We had the chefs tasting with wine pairings and it was worth every penny....The staff, from our main waiter to the secondary waiters, bussers and runners, were incredible! The linen, china, flatware and glassware were some of the finest you'll find in a restaurant...We were totally blown away by our evening...We didn't want to leave...and were very happy we decided to go back....Great great restaurant!!

Sommelier was fantastic. Server was wonderful. Very gracious team members at every interaction. Quite small portion sizes influenced my value and food rating. Corn pasta was only ok. Bread presentation was beautiful but bread was only ok. Not as spectacular as I remembered. Would return for ambiance and service.
