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.

Delmonico's delivers as always. Great food and ambiance make it one of the most desirable restaurants in New York City over 150 years later.

It was my husbands birthday and I had mentioned it in the beginning. The coke we ordered was not Coca Cola as we asked, tasted off brand. The escargot was dry and bland. The fried onions on the the steak were old and stale, you could tell they were not fresh. And we were rushed to choose a dessert. When we chose not to and my husband was opening his birthday present the waiter dropped off the check and we felt more rushed.

The service was outstanding the stakes are absolutely lean and delicious, we also had a piece of fish that was the best we’ve ever tasted. The atmosphere was really classy. I think it was one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been in! I’ve already recommended two friends it’s worth the trip downtown to go eat in this restaurant.

Fabulous! Third time here. The steak was cooked to perfection and make sure to try the baked Alaska. We were seated right away in a cozy corner area. The table next to us was a little loud but everyone was having a good time. Service is great as always.

I've been coming to this place for many years. There was a time 20 years ago when it wasn't so great, but now the dining room is in full swing. Don't bring your vegan sister-in-law, because everything is old-school delicious steaks grilled things and you will love them!

Excellent steak. As good as Peter Luger. Crab beignets as good as any in Louisiana or New England. Cocktails not cheap but a generous pour. Service is wonderful.

We’ve always wanted to go to Delmonico’s, and decided to try lunch on our trip to NYC. It was a wonderful experience in fine dining. We shared a beautiful steak and the ambiance of the wonderful dining room. Everyone was cheerful and attentive. I was an afternoon to remember. Thank you!

Great food and atmosphere. Was slightly disappointed that I placed in the reservation that this was my mother's first visit and that we were celebrating her birthday. I had to mention it to our server in front of her when I ordered her dessert. Other than that oversight, the food was phenomenal.

Expected a much better experience and will be frequenting other options in Manhattan. A couple in-acceptable occurrences. First, my Wife's meal was absolutely raw (she ordered it medium). I have a picture and am tempted to post it. Second, when our waiter was swapped out, our second waiter was not attentive and should not be working there. I eat at many restaurants and this was sub-par. I will be communicating this to others.

Great restaurant overall. Although we had a reservation, it was busy and we had to wait about 15 minutes. They apologized a couple of times. It wasn’t a big deal and I didn’t complain but they comped our deserts anyhow. We actually wanted to just split one desert but they still brought us two. That’s how you run a restaurant!

The service was disappointing, and wrecked what could have been a truely amazing night. I was not offered a drinks menu at all, was treated rudely, and the waiter practically threw the cutlery across the table. It was very impersonal and unprofessional.

I took a while to write this review to take all the emotional aspect out of it. We traveled here from DC just to try this restaurant per on line reviews. Our reservation was at 8pm, Saturday Dec 29, party of 8. I fed my kids some snacks to hold their tummies to our 8pm rsvp. When we sat down our waiter was polite. But when he came back to take our orders and one of my kids wanted only ordered an appetizer his demeanor changed instantly. He became brash when my husband asked if the meals came with any sides. He said everything is a la cart and left. We didn't see him again and had to ask other waiters if they served bread baskets because we were hungry. A waiter who only pours water was the most helpful and attentive. Our filet mignon was delivered too red and when it came back corrected our whole party had already finished dinner. We stayed ordered dessert and wine, but our main waiter served us grudgingly, never made eye contact and not once smiled or even said thank you to our over $650.00 bill! Never again will I go here nor recommend this place.

We were very excited to go to the first restaurant in America! However very disappointed to be relegated to a back grill room even when asking the hostess to move - she was not accommodating at all. It was loud since it was next to the bar. The food was good but I had to send my steak back and was not given sauce that went with the fries as I was told it wasn’t offered anymore (though still on the menu, hmmm). The waiter tried to make it right but it was disappointing and had expected more especially after making a special trip to come here.
