Steakhouse
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.

Not worth the hype. Average Italian food at best (even for the area).

Food was very good, wine was affordable and our server was attentive. We sat at a table for 4 in the middle of the room so it was a bit crowded around the table. Other than that, the dining experience was very nice and I would recommend it. Reservations are a must at there is always a wait at the door!

Love this place! Food is always good, service is outstanding. I always want to try different places and for some reason always end up at Delmonico. Highly recommend it.

We had a 7:15 reservation. We arrived at 7:10 and were told it would be a 30 to 45 minute wait. That was not acceptable to us. Why take reservations if you cannot honor them? It was extremely loud and crowded in there and in the end we were glad to go on to Reel Seafood where we were seated quickly with no reservation. It was a quieter there and the food and service were very good.

We went to delmonicos with friends for New Year’s Eve. My husband got the Delmonico steak...he was very happy with it. Our one friend got linguine with clam sauce...again happy with dinner. The other friend and myself ordered the filet mignon...it arrived lukewarm and overcooked, like it had been sitting around. My steak had very little flavor. I was not impressed. Place was extremely busy, being New Year’s Eve so that may be why food was mediocre. Not bad enough to turn me off completely but will never order filet mignon again.

Our party of 3 went on New Years eve. We had reservations for 5pm. The place was mobbed. We were seated around 5:15 which I did not consider that bad especially with at least 20 folks waiting and all tables full.
Due to the amount of customers, the food did take a little longer however our waitress was very attentive and apologetic about the delay. Our dinners were excellent and worth the wait. 2 of our party had the portobello steak and I had the delmonico's delmonico steak. Everyone enjoyed their meal and 2 of us got to-go-boxes.
I look forward to going back. I've never had a bad meal there. Happy 2020 all.!

They forgot about us after seating our group. After 15 minutes we brought it to their attention. To their credit, they did send over an appetizer for the inconvenience. That was very nice of them and it wasn't necessary. Overall good place, good value.

Our family's favorite restaurant. I went with the Chicken Sinatra this trip. Plenty of food ... enough for dinner that night and enough leftover for another at home. Already know what I will order next trip, using the gift certificates my Mom gives me evry Year for Christmas. 😉

It was my son's 22nd Birthday. The food and service were excellent.
At the end the waitresses sang Happy Birthday which was really neat. Our waitress Erica might think about trying out for the "VOICE", she can sing not to mention the great service she provided.
My son loved his 22nd Birthday dinner at Delmonicos

Thanks,
Kevin

I have been going to Delmonico’s since 2002 when my exhusband took me on our first date. The marriage only lasted 9 years but my love for Delmonico’s is still going strong! Now I bring my daughter as my date :)

We always liked Delmonico’s but we had not been there lately. What really called my attention were the prices, they were really high in my opinion. The food was very good as usual but $30.00 for the Delmonico’s Steak which is full of fat with a tiny portion of pasta is disappointing. There are other Steakhouses in Albany that are delicious and the prices are right. Also, the waitress kept rushing us in a week night when there were not packed and we were trying to have some conversation. My last comment, it seems that the waitress had a cold and her sniffles bothered me, I was ready to tell her to go, blow her nose, wash her hands and come back.

Biggest problem is that the reservation through OpenTable literally was worthless.

Without explanation - on a Monday night, with visibly open tables - we were placed on a wait despite using OT to reserve approx 4 hours before. It happens, yes.
So any acknowledgment by host or management would have helped.

But this is always how Delmonico's is. Terrible attitude of the service and hosting staff is status quo. I have endured it for the steak I enjoy, but it would be nice to feel remotely welcome when I go out to eat.

Fortunately, the waiter we got this night was great, but there is literally no point in trying to reserve with Delmonico's again.
