Italian

Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse affords Utica diners that want a real challenge the opportunity to give a 24-ounce certified Angus Delmonico steak an attempt. The 16-ounce center cut New York sirloin is nothing to sneeze at either. Not just large, the steaks are full of flavor with perfect seasoning and seared to perfection. The menu at Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse doesn’t end there, however.

Chicken is also well represented at Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse with dishes such as chicken Sinatra, chicken prosciutto, chicken marsala and chicken riggies. The classics like shrimp scampi, veal parmigiana and lasagna are all available as well. Dessert options such as the homemade cannoli and amaretto cheesecake finish off the meal perfectly.

Food is always fresh, staff is always courteous, and they do live up to their reputation of ensuring you are taken care of should anything be wrong with your meal. Priced competitively with area restaurants that offer similar fare.

I have been a fan of Delmonicos but this visit was very disappointing. Menu has changed immensely. What Italian restaurant doesn’t have Chicken Parmigiana on their menu?? My husband ordered a $30 steak. It literally was presented as a steak on a plate, nothing else and a bowl of mashed potatoes. No garnish or salad included. That’s another big thing salad is extra. I ordered my favorite Chicken Sanatra. Very disappointed. Hardly any sauce and again the presentation was very lacking. We paid $80 for our meal and felt totally ripped off. Will not be going back.

We arrived we were seated quickly, waitress was always on point, took our order for two Very well done steaks. I had to say VERY well done because on our last visit we had to return the steak three times. This time we both ordered steak and both steaks were to be VERY well done. When they arrived to the table blood was coming out of the top of steak I could see it going all the way through the brown gravey and in my mashed potatoes. My husbands was the same way. Well done means no blood and seeing blood in my food is disgusting. Both were returned to the kitchen and when they were returned it was cooked more but was still bloody we gave up and ate what we could and left the rest. I feel at this point we need to order chicken not the steak. But that defeats the point of a steak house. But the service was great other then that.

It was New Years Eve, however we were there last year for the same holiday and the bar was 3 or 4 deep. We managed to get sat for dinner in a timely manner.
As busy as it was with our Open Table reservation.
Now this year, it was completely different. It was no where as busy. And still they managed to diss us even though we had an Open Table reservation. It was rude and unacceptable. My husband and I will Never go back there. Especially when there are so many more wonderful restaurants in the area. And more opening.

Had 6:45 reservations were seated at 7:35. Ordered linguine and clams the clams were tender but the rest of the dish tasted like bland greasy noodles. Hate to say but really bad maybe due to being busy. New year eve.

New Year’s Eve with family. Food was great but it was a LONG wait for a seat and food. We had reservations and were sat an hour later. Multiple parties who came in afterwards were sat before our party of 5 including a party of 12. We were told it was because parties of 2-4 and very large parties with reservations are easier to sit. The large parties have little rooms. Hmmm... we had a reservation. Guess ours didn’t matter. Also, why can’t you put two tables together?

The food was slow to come out. The waitress told us several times it would be out soon but it wasn’t. I think she truly believed it would be out soon. She apologized numerous times. They ended up giving us free desserts which high was nice but my 2 sons both had plans to meet up with friends and both were late for their commitments. One had to drive to canastota from Utica. He almost cancelled because it got to be so late.

We left extra in the tip for the waitress as she was great and doing the best she could - but we could tell she was a bit frustrated by the slowness of the kitchen. Used to be a favorite spot for us and hadn’t been there in awhile.... Not sure we’ll go back.

Very well appointed restaurant with great atmosphere. Phenomenal food and huge portions! If you leave hungry it’s your own fault! Try the Calamari for an appetizer and Filet Sinatra for dinner—you won’t be disappointed.

We arrived a little early with a reservation, and were seated within 20 minutes. This being Christmas eve, we were pleasantly surprised the wait wasn't a bit longer. The hostess was less than friendly, but I'm sure some of the guests waiting may have been less than kind to her. Our server was excellent and although the place was packed as usual, we didn't wait too long for water or wine refills. My filet was done perfectly and the others at our table were equally happy with their meals. Our children were visiting and we wanted to have a nice dinner with family, and they were able to provide that. Very happy with our experience.

We went for Christmas Eve dinner as we have for the last several years. Our dinner and service has always been very good. This year was awful. We were seated right away but after we were seated, it went downhill after that. They were out of just about everything we wanted to order. It was an early dinner and they were already out of baked potatoes, sweet potatoes and other items. They never told us they were out of anything for over an hour. We should have been served our dinner by then. They said they had one sweet potato that they would give us at no charge because it wasn’t the best looking sweet potato. When they brought, it looked like someone had already started eating it. It had fork marks in it and there was hardly any potato, needless to say we didn’t eat it. Some of the other food they did bring was cold. All they kept saying was they were sorry and blaming it on it being Christmas Eve. As I mentioned, we have been going there for Christmas Eve for the past several years at about the same time and never experienced this type of service. It didn’t even seem as busy as in the past years. We were there for over 3 hr and only had a party of 6. Sorry Delmonico’s we won’t be coming back next year and will suggest to friends and family not to either. Who runs out of potatoes with a steak dinner?

Overall the service and food was excellent as always, with the exception of the Chicken Riggies. Not up to the usual quality we have come to expect. Very little shredded chicken and not much else. My mother requested some hot peppers in them and did not get them. She didn't tell me until the next day or I would have told the waitress. Hopefully, it was a one time thing.

We met some friends at Delmonico's, first time going and we found the everything very nice. The hostess and our waitress were very kind and respectful. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the looks of the inside of the restaurant. The music playing was not too loud and intrusive. We look forward to going again soon.

Atmosphere, food, everything was outstanding. We were 5 minutes late for our reservation, and they said our table would be a few minutes. The booth was ready, I think there was just some miscommunication. So we had to wait a few minutes to be seated, but everything was great!

Great food in the little town of Utica. Big portions. One of us had the 9 oz filet. Nice and tender, cooked to medium as requested, but could’ve used a little more seasoning. The other one of us had the sirloin, very flavorful! Side of broccoli tasty and shareable.
