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.

Our recent dinner at Del Posto was so wonderful in every way. Celebrating a birthday with my family is gift enough but our server Debbie made the evening so comfortable and memorable for everyone. The experience of enjoying delicious food in an amazingly beautiful atmosphere with our almost adult children was a treat. Debbie made each of us feel like the night was created just for us!

I’ve enjoyed eating at Del Posto for several years. Unlike in the past, yesterday was a disappointment, mostly due to amateurish service. Also, the amuse bouche (artichoke and chicken soup) were both much too salty. Waiter spilled jus on tablecloth right next to my arm. Later, he spilled water. Waiter body checked table causing a disturbance. While in mid conversation, an arm appears in between my friend I to remove bread crumbs from tablecloth so we have to stop our conversation. Waiter confused which one of us ordered the secondo so I had to correct him. There much movement and flittering of waitstaff around our table when I would prefer that they remain in the background, not hovering over us. We were seated immediately adjacent other occupied tables when 2/3 of the room was unoccupied so we were annoyed by unavoidably overhearing conversations from them. I would have preferred to have a more peaceful and relaxing meal. One or two of these accidents or mishaps is understandable, but when they happen over and again, it has an adverse impact on the overall dining experience. Changes in the way a restaurant operates is normal and inevitable, but this is not for the better.

The service is impeccable and it is a shame that the food is disappointing. We ordered spaghetti al riccio (urchin)
My friend and I are from Italy from Rome and the recipe was altered and too heavy on butter. Now who knows how this recipe is and what it should taste like would be disappointed. I would say that this restaurant is more American in the interpretation of Italian dishes.
Nonetheless the servers tried their best.

Great service; very knowledgeable and accommodating. They were able to work with all of our dietary needs (gluten, dairy free, pescatarian). We were there on a Sunday night for dinner, and it was quiet enough for conversation. The live piano player only added to the acoustic ambiance. Love the elegant design. The pairing is fun and informative.

Our food was quite good. The appetizers, Scampi, Carne Cruda, Octopus, and Girella, were delicious and the entrees, Orecchiette, Garganelli, Tortellini, and Ribeye were outstanding. The Panna Cotta and the Sorbets were the perfect finish. My only complaint is that the food, especially the starters, is really overpriced regardless of the quality. I really feel that the restaurant would get more repeat business if
it adjusted the prices. With a decent bottle of wine and a few cocktails, we spent $1,300 U.S. currency
or $1,700 CDN currency. $400.00 per person is just too exhoritant. I would go to Del Posto more often if it was less expensive.

Expense account atmosphere with an emphasis on pushing you through to clear table. Amuse bouche on table immediately after seating. Cocktails slow to arrive and we wanted to finish those before eating anything. Too many people came by too often to try to clear before we ever touched them. Cleared before we even tried them without asking. Approached several times before having our drinks to ask if we wanted to order. Service so “efficient” that almost impossible to understand the rapid fire description of dishes fairly thrown at table - equally speedily removed if you made the mistake of putting utensil down before finishing. Menu/food formulaic. Beautiful setting but pianist who has to be loud to be heard in such a large space makes conversation difficult at reasonable level. Expensive for that kind of rushed treatment.

I have been to Del Posto before and was always impressed. Unfortunately, this time (which was my birthday) I was disappointed primarily with the service. Although we had a number of knowledgeable professionals attending to us, it seemed that we were left unattended more than I would have expected. My dining colleague and I are both gluten free, and the head waiter helped us select gluten free options.
That is always appreciated. The food was good, but not up to the caliber I recall on my last visit. We did receive an extra dessert with a candle in celebration of my birthday. The birthday wish (the plate said happy birthday too) was a nice thought. My appetizer was the Himachi and it was delicious. I ordered a pasta dish as my main course. It was the first pasta dish on the menu and recommended by the waiter. It was extremely rich, but tasty. However, it was lukewarm. I decided not to send it back. My dining partner had the veal and pork pasta with red sauce pasta and it was very good. The desserts were beautifully presented and extremely enjoyable.
