Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse offers unforgettable meals in an equally unforgettable atmosphere. Our guests enjoy the Italian-themed music with plenty of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack; the caricatures on the walls; the big-city feel; and the warmth of the wood-paneled dining rooms. Above all, they love the feast for all of their senses provided by our 24 oz. signature Delmonico steak.

We also serve homemade Italian specialties, including pasta, seafood dishes, bruschetta, garlic bread, salads, chicken dishes, and cannoli, as well as a great selection of wines.

We had a very long wait to get our initial food, but the restaurant compensated for that. The waitress was very good despite that they were very busy. Very good experience.

We had reservations for a large party and ended up moving it up by over an hour. they were very accommodating and put us in a side room that was great. The food and wait staff were perfect. I would recommend this place for any special occasion. GREAT!

I see a lot of people complain about the fat on the steak. I'd like everyone to take notice to how on the menu it states. That ribeye is a fatty cut of meat ( anyone that actually knows anything about steak cuts knows this already) they suggested for you to get a sirloin if you don't like the fat! That fat is what makes it juicy and taste good! I get the Delmonico steak each time I go! Plop their garlic butter on it with some salt 😍

Set up reservations for 6pm, did not get a table til 745 pm and did not leave until 910pm. I know it was a busy night but the girl checking us in could of told us it was going to be a 2 hour wait! Instead of telling me that my table was being set up once we came in.

Going through the website, it could be misleading to call it "reserve a table" when in actuality, it's "priority seating" as I was told while waiting a half hour for our "reserved seats".
Call it what it is, there were many unhappy people there that had "reserved" a seat and had been waiting for an hour +.... if a patron shows up and has to wait for an hour for their reserved seat, it's not reserved... other than that, the waiting staff were wonderful and the meal excellent as usual.

I got the Delmonico steak and it was mediocre. A truly great steak won’t need steak sauce. I had to add salt and steak sauce just to eat it. I saved a large portion and re-cooked it at home. For the price, I was expecting a top of the line steak. However the tiramisu was fantastic!

The waitresses make you feel comfortable and welcome the minute you arrive at your table. The portions are enormous and I always end up taking food home. The deserts are generous in size so 3-4 people can share who have to control themselves not to lick the last drop out of the plate.

Our som’s grad school celebration! This is our 3rd visit to Delmonico’s in Rochester and it did not disappoint. We all had filet and all were cooked to perfection. My husband had the wedge salad and it was large and amazing with a lovely balsamic vinaigrette. We had a shared dessert of cappuccino pie, a frozen luscious pie with fresh whipped cream and it was also very large.
Meagan was our server and she was very sweet and took excellent care of us.

First off our server was excellent and she stated she was training a new server. Both of them were excellent probably a good choice for a trainer. The food was excellent my guest all agreed and even complimented how good it was the next day. Being out of town I went with a resturant I have been to in other areas. This was the best Delmonicos I have been to. My next trip through I will be back..

We love this restaurant. The food is great. this last time the food wasn't as good as we've had before, but it was also busy. I think that had a bit to do with it. Our service is usually really good , but this past time we had to order our drinks twice and the server was very absent. Also, we weren't greeted as we have been in the past with a simple hello and welcome. Although our experience was less than what we're used to we will go back here. it's a nice place and although noisy it's cozy and calming.

The only complaint I have is the fact that we were seated in a isle booth near the bar and every time the restaurant door was open, we got a gust of cold air through out our entire meal.

We were so disappointed. We come to this restaurant for special celebrations, and Mother’s Day should have been a better experience. I called early in the day on Sunday to check my reservation, and was told they do not accept reservations. I reminded the Hostess we booked through Open Table weeks ago, requesting a large booth in our favorite waitress’s section. We were told there would be a wait of about us 10 minutes.
Once we arrived, we waited about a half hour, we’re seated in a small booth, and not with our favorite waitress. We were told we would have to wait for a booth to open up in her section.
The music was so loud we could hardly carry on a conversation, the menu was a “Special Event” menu, very limited and all their high end entrees. Not fair, patrons should know that when the book reservations on a Open Table at least.
The food was the worst ever. Three of the dishes, all different, were made with burned garlic. The Linguine with Clam Sauce that I had, was almost inedible. The Fettuccine Alfredo pasta was overcooked and gummy and stuck to my wife’s teeth. Thank goodness the 3 appetizers we ordered were fillIng, since none of us (4) could finish our meals. Ordinarily we would have sent them back, but the Mother’s Day challenges the kitchen faced, we knew it would not be a good idea.
When you spend close to $200 for dinner, no matter what day it is, you should be seated and served n accordance with good businesses practices. Delmonicos did not deliver.

Chain restaurant with great service and decent food. Pricey, but huge portions. Very popular, so make a reservation to avoid having to wait around for a table. The acoustics are good and you can't hear every word being said at the next table. Would recommend, especially since it's within a safe walk from two hotels.

Best canoli's in Rochester!!! BY FAR!!! We sometimes drop in just to get one after an evening out & about.
Dinners (4) were all very good. The ONLY reason I didn't give 5 stars on the food was because my dish was very good (Chicken French) but not the best I've had. You do steak incredibly well & Delmonico's has become somewhat the family "go to" for Birthdays, celebrations for our family because everyone enjoys the food/experience . Very well stated restaurant. Thank you
