Our first time at Delmonico’s in 30 years. What an awesome experience. We all had the signature steak - best steak ever - far better than any other NYC steakhouses. We will definitely be back.

Our experience at Delmonico's could not have been better. The waiter was imaginative and curated a wonderful experience with exceptional recommendations. We sampled three cuts of Delmonico (20, 90 and 180 day aging), along with a shared order of Lobster Newburg, all served center table for a shared sampling experience. The wine selection was exceptional. We capped it off with a shared Baked Alaska. This made for a memorable and engaging evening. Priceless.

As for the food, and steak in particular, I must say, it was simply epic. I've had the pleasure of sampling the most highly regarded steak restaurants around the world, and I would include Delmonico's comfortably among the top 10 worldwide, bar none. It is the real deal and an experience worthy of a pilgrimage.

Waiter was cold and not very welcoming. He rushed us thru our meal selection and seemed more interested in turning the table vs. making our dining experience better. The Delmonico steak isn’t anything to write home about. I would try one of the other selections.

Disappointed was not impressed with the food we ordered. My husband wanted soup for starters & not on the menu. Later after we were eating our server offered Lobster bisque to the table next to us ( husbands fav) did not tell us that! He was not friendly didn’t seem to care if we were there or not. We dine out 20 + times a month wherever we are & we are in NYC multiple times a yr. we will not return there. We live in Houston friendly is important, good service & good food. This was not it.

I come here every time I visit NYC. First, I like the "old world" charm and service inherent in the place - that appeals to me. The food is first rate. The staff is attentive, whether it be to refill your water glass (almost immediate) or if you have questions about the menu. One thing I did notice this trip which I did not care for was that the maître d (I think he was) admonished a young man (I think he was a set up person) in front of the restaurant full of customers. Bad form, and certainly not what I would expect from Delmonico's. Perhaps he was under stress because of the night (12//29) or the season; however that is not an excuse. It took away from the normal ambience. I had two persons with me who had never been there and it certainly detracted from their enjoyment, especially after I had talked up the "Delmonico's" experience.

As a first-timer, I had great expectations. The restaurant is beautiful; but I thought the lights could’ve been dimmed a bit. Waiter was friendly. The world famous Eggs Benedict was tasty but lukewarm at best. We were celebrating my daughhter’s 16th birthday and I notified the restaurant in advance. I wish there could’ve been something a little extra special they could’ve offered her for the occasion. Overall, we kinda shrugged our shoulders.

Unfortunately a bad experience for us we had to send the steaks back twice and then gave up and put up...

Service was grumpy at best and basically threw the plates down.

- I was there on December 19, first time. So I made a reservation two weeks in advance, just in case since we were before Christmas. By our agenda we ate a little late, the place was beginning to empty. So we were with little noise
- The waiter was friendly at all times and kind with my goddaughter's choice. An 8-year-old girl who eats little, but here she finished her sirloin (medium well) completely.
- We didn't order starters. I ordered Delmonico steak, rare not blue, supremely cooked. With house cut french fries. It was delightful. Also ordered one Classic baked Alaska, supreme dessert and big enough to share. As tasty as nice to look at.
- Summary: good service, old-school place but homely, really good meal. We enjoyed the place and the meat. Of course, we will return.
