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.

Outstanding!!! We arrived for 8.15 and it was busy with a good level of noise and action. Come 9.30 it had died down considerably..

Staff were top topnotch and food was great.. Big lumps of meat cook perfectly..

I can see why this place has been around for 180 years! The steak was perfect all the way through and the char was splendid! The king crab mac n cheese was amazing and the creaminess complimented the steak perfectly!

This was the finest steakhouse experience of my life. My girlfriend and I came here for Valentine's Day and were impressed with the experience at every level. We requested a quiet/private table and were seated in a special room. It was very intimate and the food was outstanding. I will definitely be back for another occasion if my wallet allows me...

It was the second time that I had met a friend there. We returned because our first experience was perfect. This time all was amiss. The waiter did not tend to basics and hovered doing nothing. We felt unwanted which was confirmed when I asked for cheese as a dessert and the waiter rudely waved me off. I live in California and look forward to returning to my former residence, especially as the food in so many restaurants is unparalleled. This was absurdly poor.

Solid but unexciting steakhouse. Relies heavily on name recognition and history, but at least provides a decent meal. Cocktails are underwhelming. If you're looking for the best steak in a historic setting, check Keen's or Peter Luger.

This was my first time at the oldest restaurant in NYC, and in no way did it disappoint. The food was luxurious; the atmosphere friendly, and the service impeccable. We three each had different items, and so we could taste a variety. The lobster bisque was lovely, and the scallops appetizer succulent. We had two different steaks and lobster newberg, all of which were delicious. Dessert was cheesecake (light and airy), chocolate mousse cake (rich and dense), and Baked Alaska: gorgeous!

Went for NY Restaurant Week, and had a wonderful experience! The staff was accommodating, courteous, and knowledgeable about menu items. The food was well prepared and plated beautifully. This was the first time here, and I'm anticipating returning soon.

Classic dishes ordered at the classic restaurant where they originated made for a fun evening and excellent meal. The atmosphere is classic and timeless, with wood paneling, wall decor, chandeliers, tablecloths and candles on tables. Service was NY-minute efficient, friendly, and professional. We ordered Delmonico steak rare...perfect, Lobster Newburgh...classic, Baked Alaska..scrumptious. Wine was surprisingly nicely priced. Overall a satisfying, classic meal done right.

My boyfriend and I went for restaurant week and it was lovely! For the value of the meal, the portions were smaller than what I would imagine they normally are but it was worth paying for the meal at a fraction of the price. Our server was very attentive and we were placed in a separate room so our date was much more intimate. I also made our reservation on the OpenTable app and checked off that it was my birthday and my dessert came with a candle! They really went above and beyond with the service.

The food was perfection, and a great value on the Restaurant Week lunch menu.

But was disappointed and frustrated that the service was not nearly as top-notch. Both our waiter and busboy failed to bring ice for my water as requested, until reminded, and -- perhaps due to a shift change mid-afternoon -- we had to wait nearly 20 minutes for our check.

Yes, come for the steak. But for dessert, try the creme brulee, it will blow your mind.

The drinks and food was good.The service was terrible. We had to ask for bread plates, they had no been placed on the table. We had to ask for napkins, they had not been placed on the table. The menu was not properly explained to us. We had been looking forward to this meal. We were disappointed.
Thank you.
