8 course tasting menu was good but not that innovative. 1 course was not tasty.

Del Posto is at the top of our list for special celebrations. The setting is beautiful and romantic and the staff makes one feel like royalty. The food is both different from NYC's sometimes "standard" menus and there are good choices.
One can be part of the action downstairs -- or overlook it from the lovely gallery above, all by soft candlelight and while enjoying very complementary piano music.

My wife became ill and we needed to leave. They demanded I pay full price for the whole meal even though we only had the first course.

Del Posto is an elegant, beautiful restaurant. Lovely ambiance. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The prices are more than we are used to, but the waiter was very gracious about our sharing a salad and having pasta dishes for our main dishes. Cocktails were perfect. Staff is classy and friendly.

Nothing special. Food was ok... many waiters, good service, forms and napkins are changed every five minutes, but very uptight. Good to try once, will not return. Not for a 30-40 yo crowd

Del posto is definitely a place to have business and adult celebrations. The food was good but it was not exceptional. I believe the tasting menu is overpriced for what is being offered, specially when you have to add a $ dollar supplement for truffles butter. The menu is very traditional Italian. It came highly recommended, so I expected amazing. We had a nice time but will probably not return.
When looking at the overall experience, I have to say that the service was superb.

This was the highlight of our 5 day trip to NYC and the Celebration 🎊 of 53 years of marriage and my wife’s 53 years in Nursing.
You staff was fabulous, the food scrumptious and the piano playing a pleasant enviable.
We will return and bring our 50 year friends to our next Celebration.

Thank you Jacqueline and Harry Rugg

Everything was salty. Both my friend and I were disappointed with the menu, given the per person cost of the prix-fixe. We’ve both been to the restaurant a few years ago, and food then was so much better.

Over the years I have dined at Del Posto several times and never been disappointed. However, it seems that the restaurant has lost its way. I was there on a Saturday night celebrating a friend's milestone birthday with 7 other people. The evening started out well since the restaurant is quite elegant with great live music. However, even though we ordered the 8 course meal and wine flight, we were disappointed in the quality of dishes and especially in the final course, which was pork tenderloin, and was at best served at room temperature.

The service was outstanding and the sommelier was quite well informed but the food was not up to the standards we had come to expect. Disappointing especially for the prices charged for our meal and wine.

Del Posto is consistently great..a bit louder than we are used to especially with large groups in the main dining room but to be fair don’t know if we have been there on a Saturday night. All in all still a terrific overall experience.

Heard good things, however:
- Food was ok (I liked my meal but the other two in the party thought theirs was bland)
- Service was fairly poor, on three occasions it took about 10 minutes to get a refill for a drink (one of which actually happened while we were in the bar which I really don’t understand)
- Felt like we had three different waiters the entire night
- Weren’t even offered the a la carte menu (not sure if that’s normal) but had to ask for it; almost came off as deceptive

Starters are very small and blend.
Lasagna has a very strong meaty taste, it was also a little bit burn.
We changed it for Tortellini and once again very blend.
The table next to us had to ask 3 times to get pepper.
Overall a disappointing experience

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.
