Steakhouse
Delmonico's began as the first restaurant in the United States and has had a profound impact on American dining tradition. Our setting is where nearly two centuries of notable poets, affluent socialites, celebrities and presidents have celebrated in the splendor that is Delmonico's. Delmonico's welcomes Executive Chef Bill Oliva our kitchen. While preserving the classic dishes such as Lobster Newburg, Delmonico's Steak and Baked Alaska, Bill brings a level of culinary sophistication to Delmonico's with his addition of creative seafood offerings and other inventive dishes. Business casual attire is suggested (a jacket and tie are not required).
We kindly request that gentleman refrain from wearing hats, shorts, sleeveless shirts and flip flops in the main dining room.

Creamed spinach was a cold. Steak was also a bit cold. Made us question whether the steak sat for a while.

Although some of the prices might be a little high, the quality is evident in most of the food. Cannot go wrong with the ribeye (or Delmonico cut). Starters and sides were satisfactory. The Baked Alaska was a little bit of a let down - although they are the originators of the dessert, either the recipe needs a revamp or the ingredients used to make the dish need to be of higher quality. I would come back for the meat, perhaps next time I'll choose a different dessert to end the meal. Also service was great - thank you Albert!

We had a reservation, but we felt we were terribly rushed to finish. We had a bottle of wine and we felt like we had to down it so our waiter could turn the table. Our side dishes were cold, but my filet was perfect! Wine was so-so!

Delmonico's was fantastic! We had a party of 6 and most of us ordered the Signature Delmonico Steak.

Our buddy, self-proclaimed food connoisseur, ordered the 45 day dry-aged Prime Bone-In Ribeye while his wife ordered the signature steak. In the end, he enjoyed the Signature steak over the 45 day dry-aged ribeye.

You also have to try the Baked Alaska dessert. It was awesome!

The food was delicious, and the service was the best one will ever get. We had the lobster Newburg style. which Delmonico's invented years ago, and it certainly did not disappoint. I will be going back for sure! My only regret is that after eating a 2 pound lobster, I was too full for dessert.

Was looking forward to this visit for quite some time. Traveled from Florida and visited three steakhouses (Keens, Porter House, Delmonico’s). Ordered the boneless ribeye medium well and it came medium rare. They took it back and ruined the steak completely. Charred the heck out of it and it was still only medium. Had to get to the airport so just had to eat what was edible. The Happy Anniversary dessert was a nice touch. Very disappointed in the steak. Ruined what would otherwise have been a great memory.

Being it Demonico’s I expected it to have higher level of standard. The server didnt introduce his name and the meal just felt like am everyday sequence rather than an experience people cone to have paying $100+. Was looking forward to this meal but it was very underwhelming

We go to NYC once a year. A dinner at Delmonico’s is a must. The restaurant is beautiful and everyone is friendly and attentive. We ordered the Delmonico steak and a ribeye, which came with French fried onion strings. Steaks were perfectly done and delicious. Our side dish was the onion rings, thick and tasty batter coated. The desert was a wonderful ice cream ball surrounded by merangue.

The most Delmonico's has going for it is it's name. I respect the fact that they are the first prime steakhouse in America, but their dining experience now is shoddy. The server seemed like he didn't want to be there, and basically never came to our table, he never even gave us his name. The steak was decent but for $51 it's not hard to make a good steak. The sides were FAR overpriced. I worked in an upperclass steakhouse for 2 years as a cook so I understand the experience I should have received. But there are way too many great steakhouses in NYC for this one to be delivering this low level dining experience.

Our food was delicious. However, my steak came out rare and not medium. I sent it back and it came back out well done. Only one person came out and only ask “is it better” - this restaurant came highly recommended by plenty but I am disappointed in the service. You expect top service when paying these prices. This was my husbands 30th birthday which I had noted on my reservation. Since it also asks for the type of occasion. None of his plates came out with “happy birthday” written on it. I was very disappointed. I saw online how others got that and he did not. That was also one of the reasons why I chose this restaurant Because I thought they took notes of my notes..

Best steak we've had in a while. We had the NY Strip Steak, and although we had thought we ordered the dry-aged, we had not and it was -- great! A nice surprise! The creamed spinach and whipped potatoes were delicious! We will have to return to try the baked Alaska. We've been to NY many times, but never before to Delmonico's -- we'll be sure to return. Highly recommend.

Various members of groups steak was either over or under cooked. One steak got sent back for being really undercooked, it came back and it was still undercooked. The restaurant did comp us that steak though. I didn't like the fact that fried onions were put on top of the steaks and they were not mentioned anywhere in the menu. The sides and appetizers were good though. Service was mediocre at best and had automatically included 20% gratuity for something that definitely didn't deserve that high.
I don't think I would go back there.
