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.

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!

Our first time to New York City celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary and decided to spend our night here. I must say it was probably the greatest food experience we have ever had. My wife and I are big fans of Joe's and big foodies. We have been to restaurants all over the country and this may be the best. Thanks for a memorable night.

I had an important business meeting and Del Posto was recommended to me by a good friend who knew NYC restaurant scene.. To say it was a good experience, is an under statement, Besides the fact that the place are super classy, amazing atmosphere, the food was delicious, and the attention we got from the service staff was beyond belief.. I have been to top restaurants all over the world, but for me this place tops it.. I was expecting huge bill, as we both ordered 2 glasses of Monprivatos05 red wine. for what we ordered, the bill was fair. I will be back over and over and over again.. highly recommended.
