good food but not amazing service. waiter couldn't really explain the difference between several of the steaks beyond what was said on the menu. that's pretty much the only reason to have a water at a steak restaurant.

It was our Anniversary and actually had planned to come last year but we had to change our plans. So this year we made it and we’re so glad that we did. Our reservation was for 8pm, we arrived 5 minutes early and we were seated almost immediately. My wife ordered the Filet and I went with the signature Delmonico. The flavor was amazing and they were cooked just as we had requested. Our server was very attentive as were all of the other staff that work hard to make the experience something special. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great steak house in lower Manhattan.

Delmonico’s lives up to its reputation as a first class restaurant. From cocktails to wonderful crab bisque to an extensive wine list (pricey) the steaks that made it famous and BAKED ALASKA, a terrific anniversary celebration experience. Thanks to waiter Frank for everything.

Poor service. Wait staff was rude. Our waiter was obviously making comments about our table, because I at several times saw other waiters looking over at us after our waiter quietly said something. We Had to send all steaks back because they were undercooked. The table next to us sent their steaks back as well and received a whole new meal; we received our same steaks back charred. Would not recommend this restaurant and definitely would not return.

This is an institution that lives up to its history. Excellent in every way. We had Delmonico ribeyes, Delmonico potatoes, mushrooms & onion, and asparagus accompanied by a phenomenal Caymus Cabernet. Outstanding. We couldn't finish - we had doggy bags for leftover lunches!

Birthday, everything was good. I asked them to return the scotch, it was hurting my stomach. they took it away but kept it on my tab, which is why I tipped less. I even said to myself they will get a better tip if it was off

Outstanding, exceptional - THE original restaurant (literally:)
A hot button of mine is that very few restaurants' Maitre d' in the US does anything other than steer the front desk / arrivals process; the job (in France, it's a vocation) is to be the HEAD WAITER ensuring & monitoring EVERY table is being served with exception (e.g. wine served on-time with the courses; gauge the diners' experience and step in to elevate it whenever he/she can); other than Lincoln (at Lincoln Center) Delmonico's comes the closest to true high end service - and comparable food - in NYC.
Excellent wait staff, ambiance and food.
A MUST experience for every visitor to, and resident of, Manhattan!!!

Very poor service ! We were visiting from out of town and wanted to have a nice dinner. We made reservations at 9:30 pm and had no problem getting a table right away, however once we were seated our experience was ruined. Our waiter rushed us to order. He told us we could not order drinks or an appetizer until we were ready to order our main course. He was very rude and we felt rushed the entire time. We spoke with management and he did no better making us feel welcomed. He reiterated that the kitchen closed at 10pm and we needed to order before. I have never had this experience at a fine dinning establishment. I travel very frequently and eat at pleated like this one very often! We spent over $500 on our bill and it was ridiculous to be rushed! We will never come back here again.

Escargot was tasteless and Delmonico Steak was fatty and nothing special. Honestly, I was so eager to finally eat here after 20 years of living in lower Manhattan and I have to say this is one of the most over-rated steak places! Nothing special. Don't waste your money.

My daughter and I were visiting NY on vacation, and I thought eating at this iconic restaurant would be worth the money spent in memories alone. We were not disappointed. The steak and filet we ordered were impeccable. The service was fantastic...mind you, there was an unexpected blizzard that night and many empty tables, so we had a leisure 2 hour meal with plenty of attention paid to our table. I would definitely come back.

We made the reservation weeks in advance because we knew it was a special room and traditional dining spot. We arrived a few minutes early only to find out there was no table available. Instead of a table in the beautifully glamorous main dining room, we were shown a table in a an empty back room with no table cloths and no ambience. It looked and felt like a snack bar at a golf club. We declined to eat there and was asked to wait in the bar. When I asked if they were offering us a drink while we waited, the hostess giggled. Fortunately a table became available after another ten minutes and from there it was clear sailing. The food and service were both good and it turned out to be a nice meal. It should be noted that the manager never appeared until we were finally seated.

So elegant, and rich with history. We knew that we were in for a wonderful evening upon stepping through the door. The wine list is extensive. We had beef entrees, of course. Since this is the home of the Delmonico cut, I didn't even struggle to make a decision. I am raised on grained beef from my farm and have never tasted a more flavorful, tender cut. The portions are ample. Our only complaint was the lag time for service. It seemed that the waiter was assigned to too many tables, and this left us unattended for long periods of time throughout the meal. Nonetheless, we will visit again when we return to NYC.

Thanks to the team at Delmonico's for making my last 2 dining experiences fantastic. From the warm welcome upon entering he dining room by the hostess to he exemplary service by Vibor and Albert accompanied by the scrumptious food including the Delmonico steak, the dry aged rib-eye, the lamb chops, scallops and fois gras appetizers, sides of wedge salad and bay turnips with asparagus the meal was outstanding. I had ordered baked Alaska for the person I was entertaining and it was well received. Additionally, the Maitre d, Corto (spelling?) made sure the entire evening was perfect.

All in all another outstanding night at the best restaurant in downtown Manhattan.

Respectfully,
