Once every Spring, my husband and I have a working commitment with a local food distributor in the Rochester area. This is the first time we have had such an incredible dining experience in the area. My husband (originally a Buffalonian) has told me repeatedly that Rochester has the most wonderful Italian restaurants. However, only now have I experienced wonderful Italian in Rochester. Our dining experience was wonderful ... from the atmosphere, to the way the servers were dressed, everyone’s positive personality, to (saving the best for last) the most incredibly wonderful Italian food. We did not experience the steak part of the steakhouse (since we are in the meat manufacturing business, we tend to lean toward entrees where meat is not the focal point); however, our appetizers and more pasta based entrees were beyond our expectations. Thank you for such a fantastic dining experience. Oh and by the way, the wines were superb also. Also, thank you so much for being able to dine at such a fine restaurant on a SUNDAY evening. There’s so few places in Rochester open for dinner on a Sunday evening. They’re missing out on the business; however, your restaurant is reaping all the customers.
I took my husband for his birthday and invited another couple. We had a blast! Loved our server as well! We even had a trainee Carly who was a sweetheart! We have never had a bad time or meal!! We love Delmonico’s!
Good Italian food with very generous portions close by the RIT campus. IMPORTANT NOTE: we were relegated to the regular queue for waiting for a table despite having a reservation. We were informed that the restaurant does NOT take reservations for Friday/Saturday nights between 5 and 8 pm. Open Table will allow you to make the reservation but the restaurant will not honor it.
very disappointed in service especially as it was our anniversary...waitress new and inexperienced so mistakes were made.
Requested a Sinatra booth with a curtain that can be drawn for privacy or muse control. We were shown to exactly what I requested. Very easy to carry on conversation even though restaurant was very busy. Food was excellent!
Food was great ! Tired of cooking every holiday.
Went for Easter. Great steak at a very reasonable price. Service was terrific.
Our local favorite for a special meal with family and friends.
Filet mignon has no flavor. Had to add salt and pepper. And wasn’t expecting to see all the waitresses wearing fishnet stockings. Just expected a more upscale steakhouse.
Great food and great service. Always a favorite.
First time there. Food was good. Service was excellent and the place was cool inside. I would recommend this place.
Our waitress was amazing and very attentive. We ordered the Utica greens, highly recommend. As well as the long hot peppers. For our entree we ordered the Delmonico steak. We were a little disappointed that the steak didn’t have any flavor. The manager was very accommodating and quickly brought out a new steak. Though the second steak was just as tasteless as the first it was still nice to know that they noticed there was a problem and were very willing to redeem themselves.
Our Food Was excellent! Absolutely cooked exactly the way we ordered it. Couldn't have been better. The service was excellent as well, Very charming atmosphere, clean, very classy. The drinks however were very stingy in size, considering we only had one each and the price was $18.
That not withstanding, this is a Great place to each and Dine with friends or loved ones! Absolutely be back.
We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back.
The environment was perfect. Service phenomenal. (Lindsay was our server) Food was outstanding. Highly recommended for any occasion
The only disappointment were the desserts, large portions but very little flavor.
The bar scene was fun, the atmosphere was nice. Food was very good and birthday celebration was a nice touch. The only negative was drink service, including water refills, was slow.
Server was outstanding
The Delmonicos Steak may be huge but was very fatty. Stick with a NY Strip or Filet. Also, if you don’t want the pasta side, it cost 4 extra dollars for a SINGLE stalk of broccoli. Overall it was a “meh” experience. Expensive and a VERY loud dining experience.
Napoli chips were fabulous and really enjoined the delnobixo steak. Great service also.
Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere
Valentine’s Day date!!!
My beautiful wife and I had a wonderful dining experience on Valentines Day evening at Delmonico’s
Italian Steakhouse. This is our newest “go to” place for date night, a romantic and delicious meal with a great selection of wine to pair with our food and consistently excellent service.
Right from the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by Delmonico’s maitre d staff, we could feel the attention to great service. Our reservation was confirmed with a friendly “It’s great to see you!” and immediate pairing with a server to lead us to our table. Our waitress Gabby was friendly, courteous to a fault and efficient. She was knowledgeable about the menu and always smiling and attentive to our every need. The food (East Utica Greens appetizer, Chicken Parm , Salmon Oscar) paired with their recommended Pinot Noir, was hot fresh and so sumptuously delicious. Thanks for always being so good at what you do Delmonico’s. We will be back!
Nice place, good food but not notable for wine. We ordered a bottle, it arrived at room temperature. When I asked, the waitress said "we keep our wines in a cellar", something did not jive! Also, booths are a bit too small for a business dinner, ask for a table.
The signature Delmonico steak is incredible and at a very reasonable price. We tried three different menu entrees and all were fantastic.
Our waitress Brittany was extra special. Her lively personality was a bonus.
We started at the Bar for Happy hour then moved to the table. Great food, nice wait staff , at a fair price!
The food was delicious and the service was great nice and quiet atmosphere
It was great,i went there to celebrate my bithday with my best friend, I will definitely go there again for other occasions, however the prices are high,but they have excellent service and excellent food.
Food was a mixed bag, our server was quite good. She was friendly and professional. My husband and I shared the gorgonzola wedge, which we enjoyed. It was a generous portion and very tasty. The couple we were with had the mozzarella fritta, which was also pretty good. Their homemade marinara was nice. 3 of us had the signature steak - the Delmonico. It was cooked to the proper temperature, but the fat wasn't properly rendered and it didn't have a nice seared crust. It also wasn't seasoned well. We all needed to add salt and A1 (which I never use). The 4th person in our group had the penne alla vodka and she loved it. Desserts were delicious! 2 ice cream sundaes, 1 amaretto cheesecake and 1 berries with zabaglione. All really good. All 4 of us had 1 main complaint, and that is that 99% of the servers were in skirts so short we were sure we would be flashed if they had to reach for something - and with variations of fishnet stockings. Just didn't feel appropriate for a restaurant that isn't a gentlemen's club.
The food was very good and the waitress was attentive to our needs and was great in asking the chef about certain ingredients in a dish as to whether they were gluten or dairy free.
Wonderful wait staff arrived and sat right down. Had a great time would recommend to anyone looking for a good steak dinner
Awesome service. Our food was great. Coffee was cold but still would highly recommend
Effortless reservation process for 8 people through Open Table. Friendly and attentive staff. FABULOUS food. It was a tad noisy (we were seated near the bar) but not unbearable. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Good food, plenty of options and very good service.
The best lasagna I have ever had! Great service & atmosphere.
My only complaint- I wish the restroom wasn’t so dark.
Me and my husband love this restaurant. We love the service and food. They are very friendly and respectful. This is our favorite restaurant to come to.
