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.

Our server seemed a little pre-occupied with 'friends' at a different table, but otherwise the experience was great!

Outback was amazing as always. Enjoyed the restaurant and the ambience with my family. The salmon was very amazing, the fettuccine was freaking great, the cheese bread was to great along with the fried calamari. Also, Olivia, whom was our server, she did an amazing job getting us our food and drinks so make sure if you get her you tip her very well.

We had a reservation. When we arrived, we were seated within theee minutes! Nice place! However, we waited ten minutes at our table before a waiter “noticed us” and brought us water. He said he would be back for our drink order. About five or so minutes later, another person arrived. I thought he was the sommelier which was good as we ordered wine. Turns out he was our new waiter and did a fantastic job! Both of our dinners were delicious! I recommend Micky Mantle’s Steakhouse if you are ever in Oaklahoma City!

We had a delicious dinner with our sons before our oldest moves into his freshman college dorm. Our server, Allysa, was amazing and we found out it was her third day - never would have known. She was terrific!
Food was perfect and scrumptious!
Ambiance was quiet, classic and interesting to look at.

Excellent service. It seemed like each server was waiting on a few tables and was able to give her attention to everyone. We never had to ask for soda refills, bread, or grated cheese. Food arrived hot and delicious, and the dinner was paced perfectly.

The service was as good as it has always been, however, we were very disappointed in the Antipasto. We have gotten this many times and it was excellent, this time it was much smaller and more like a regular salad.

The food was excellent. Those that had steaks were pleased. I had the pork chops because the crab cakes were not available. They were excellent. Our server, Danielle, was great.
My only negative would be the menu and how the food is served. If you don’t want pasta with your entree, there is a limited list of sides/veggies that you can add on for a price. Having the option of pasta or potato or vegetable would have been nice. Dinner does not include salad. And why is everything served in its own dish? One plate makes for a less crowded table and easier dining. The free birthday cannoli was a nice touch. Thank you.

A buddy of mine from the Marine Corps was in town. I had not seen him in over 50 years. I had no idea he was here until he called that morning. So I had little chance to set anything up. The online reservation was extremely helpful. The food there is always exceptional. The service was very very good. We ere expecting higher prices as this is the order of the day lately. But the evening of reminiscing and relaxing together with a great meal, was fabulous. Thank You, you made an old man happy.

We ate at a chain restaurant one night, and Delmonico's the next, and that provided a great perspective on "regular" service and food vs the Delmonico level of service and food. Bottom line: Delmonico's far exceeds the average restaurant in just about every category. Service was on point - it's obvious Delmonico's hires, trains, and retains the best servers, hosts/ hostesses, etc. They are true professionals. What a phenomenal crew. We had several starters (crab cake, soup, tomato / mozzarella), the 24 oz ribeye, and the chicken marsala. All were very good. We also ordered drinks, which were promptly served. Our waiter struck the perfect balance of being available and checking on us with not being overly present. Overall the food and service is what you hope for in a good restaurant. The only thing kind of "off" a little was the number of people wearing t-shirts and shorts to this nice restaurant. People - respect yourselves and those dining with you, please. :-)

We went to Delmonico's to celebrate a special occasion. Making a reservation online was incredibly easy. We were seated promptly upon arriving (it was a Wednesday evening). The server was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was delicious with lots of choices, the wine was reasonably priced, and the portion size was perfect. Dessert and coffee afterwards was delightful. We had a wonderful experience.

We were especially pleased with our server Meghan, who provided us with absolutely first-class, outstanding service. She was attentive, professional and courteous, and her service was crisp and polished. Our drinks were brought out promptly and our glasses were refilled as needed. She continually checked on us throughout the service, and she was so vivacious and personable that you could tell she really enjoys her work. All in all, a fun, lively experience -- A "WOW" in all categories!! Meghan is a great Brand Ambassador for Delmonico's!!

The sliced sirloin steak was so tough it was difficult to cut and to eat. Hopefully management will recognize that the quality of the steaks is very important at a steakhouse.

Walked to our seats and immediately heard a screaming child (blood-curdling) at another party in the back room. Kind of set the atmosphere immediately to a negative. Come to find out, the family was celebrating with a large group. Kid screamed a few more times, and somehow they had a loudspeaker with them....... Enough! They (fortunately), were finishing up and after about 15 minutes, left the restaurant. Maybe that's acceptable to people who frequent the place (this was our first visit). The waitress was very nice in greeting us and fun to deal with. Everything was fine after that. Meals were well-prepared and took the normal amount of time to be delivered. Appetizers were great ...Main dishes were very good (even my wife liked them)!! 'Nough said there... Will go back again...

Service was great - 1 and 1/2 lb delmonico steak was 1 pound grit and fat and undercooked for Med Rare. Tartufo dessert was very good but did not contain the almonds as advertised.
