Hubby and I went here after dry January to have an amazing dinner and delicious drinks. I mean is Mario’s restaurant so it’s gonna be sick!!! Our server (forget his name) was awesome. Loved his Italian accent and when he explained the wine pairing with each course. We did the 8 course menu which every bite was better than the first. The wine was sooooooooo good. Can’t wait to go back. You’re gonna pay when doing the wine pairing but it’s soooo worth it. You only live once.

I took my husband to DelPosto for his 56th birthday after seeing it being mentioned in a Daily News article as one of the best Italian restaurants and confirmation of same by a good friend. The ambience, food, staff and service were all impeccable from the time we walked in the door until the time we left. Such a romantic restaurant. Great for date night, birthdays and Valentine’s Day! We had the 5 course tasting menu. Every dish was excellent even though our favorites were the linguine with geoduck, the shellfish stew, the branzino and the antipasti with sweet potatoes and pears!!!! All delicious! The warm bread stick with the clotted cream and olive oil was addicting! The whole team made our experience memorable especially Damiano and Jaziel! They didn’t miss a beat!! They even gave me a small foot stool to rest my handbag on so it wouldn’t be on the floor!!! Who does that??? We will definitely go back again!

Del Posto is one of the most elegant restaurants I’ve ever been to. We did the Captains Menu where you tell the waiter your preferences and he selects the 8 courses. Every course was delicious. It was definitely pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

This is my all time favorite restaurant in the world. I make sure when I travel to NYC that this place is on my dinner list. That is a lot to say coming from an Irish guy from Chicago 😉

Absolutely one of the most disappointing dinning experiences EVER.
The ambience was dark, cold, sterile. Wait staff, though reasonably attentive
was stiff and not friendly. Prices were exorbitant for vert average food e.g.
$39 for a tossed salad, tuna entree ( 3 tiny medallions for as I recall $70)
Would NEVER recommend to friends.

Absolutely the most overrated Italian restaurant I have ever been too. Beautiful with great service, but the food was subpar and outrageously expensive. $500 for two adults and a child. We ordered two salads, two main dishes and one child’s pasta with three adult drinks. The main dishes and salad were bland. The child’s past was good though and my daughter loved the butter. Lol. The largest portion on the menu was the butter.

I had a high expectation. When I got there nice specious entrance and dining area. Service was good and attentive. Wine and salad was ok. But 2 pasta was unacceptably salty. I mentioned it. Then main dish Branzino was again salty. Tuna for my wife was as well. I don’t mind to pay 600.00 but not for this. Very disappointed.

Family of 4 wearing jeans and sneakers seated in main dining room for New Years Eve Lunch. I recall once in the summer i was wearing a suit with dress sandals and not allowed to eat...

No longer serving cocktails at the bar, only food service (the bar was empty) no one came to take drink order in the “ lounge” seating, decided to just go to table

Live piano music no longer at lunch

Several dishes not up to previous standard, lasagna tasted like burnt tomato paste

Lunch Prices raised.

Bathroom towels and hand soap no longer superior.

Table service excellent as always

Ambiance- stellar as always

Best deal in NYC for a pre-fixe lunch....wonderful setting, superb service compliments what is a fantastic tasting lunch menu. It's not inexpensive but it will be a memorable meal with one of the most extensive wine lists in the city. Enjoy a classic Italian meal in a sophisticated and inviting setting.

Most of the dishes were too salty. I ordered waguy beef which was so tough. The steak knife was so dull. with the tough beef and the dull knife, it was not an enjoyable meal. I have dined at Del Posto a few times in the past and I would not return again.

Took too long for cocktails to be served and for menus to be given to us.

The Captain’s Tasting was underwhelming. There were 4 of us and we could have tasted more if we got the standard tasting menu and chose our own appetizers and main dishes. We paid $95/pp for white truffle on our pasta and they were not generous with it at all (compared to other restaurants in NYC that charges the same price).

While this is a beautiful venue with delicious food, our service was really sub par. Two of us were served our main course but nothing arrived for the third person until we were finished eating! This was especially disheartening as it is an annual holiday time celebration among good friends.

Setting more suitable to a steakhouse, formal service as in an old-fashioned French restaurant, pastas well executed but hardly inventive, superb mains and desserts, pricing out of line. Needs a refresh in decor, style, menu.
