 (New York Area)·Dined on October 13, 2017

Made the reservation specifically to coincide with the 180th Anniversary celebration and special menu. Ordered the special item, Keller's Gulf Prawn & Lemon soufflé as an appetizer and Delmonico's steak, my date ordered the crab cake appetizer and the special 180-day aged ribeye. We ordered two sides, the Delmonico's potatoes and Mac-n-Cheese with crab. We started with the peach moonshine drink.
Service was attentive (maybe even a touch aggressive in asking if we had finished a plate). The drinks were very good. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing the two appetizers. The Delmonico's steak (regular menu) was just wonderful but ultimately swapped with my date who wasn't enamored of the 180-day aged ribeye. It seemed he didn't care for the richer flavor of the meat that the aging brought. He thoroughly enjoyed my steak, however, and I finished up his ribeye. I enjoyed the deeper, richer flavor of the aged beef. We finished both. The sides were what I would expect at a steak place-cheesy goodness. We finished by splitting their signature dessert baked Alaska-iconic and flavorful.
We enjoyed the ambiance which was like stepping back in time without having to deal with the blue cigar smoke which presumably permeated the restaurant back in the day. So happy to have gone there for dinner.

I brought my wife to Delmonico's to celebrate our 25th anniversary. There is no place on this planet I would rather celebrate it than Delmonico's. The food, atmosphere, everything was absolutely amazing and incredible. We are from Dallas and chose to fly to NYC partly to be able to celebrate at Delmonico's. We've eaten all over Dallas TX at the finest restaurants in town and they all pale in comparison to Delmonico's.

Food is outstanding however service is lacking. I ordered Dover sole, my husband ordered 45 day bone in rib eye and lobster, my daughter ordered the chicken . We noticed the beautiful presentation of the sole at the table next to us. The waiter took his time filleting it tableside. I received a rushed this is your sole from someone besides our waiter then it was whisked away. Suddenly the entrees arrive except my sole and we just sat there and waited. My husband never received his lobster either so we continued to wait. Finally my sole arrived and we were finally able to flag the waiter down for the lobster and to order a glass of wine.
Never once asked how our meal was, if we would like anything else, or even if we wanted to order a bottle of wine.

Clearly riding on their 180 year old reputation. Service level in particular is way below any other restaurant I have been to at this price point. Bar is also odd - more like a pub with TVs than a traditional steakhouse bar where one has a martini before their meal.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 5, 2017

Food and service were good but nothing remarkable. Due to a last minute private event, we were relocated to a basement dining space, the Dickens Room. Porterhouse was good and hash browned potatoes too. Asparagus was skimpy and had much more turnip than asparagus, plus asparagus Spears were cut up; this was very disappointing.

Overall the food was good but not special and pricier than other Steakhouse where the preparation and seasoning is better, and better pricing too. I've made porterhouse as good if not better and I'm no professional chef. Felt like an overpriced Ruth's Chris.

If in NYC why not go to a place with the history of Delmonico’s. Steak restaurants are a dime a dozen. But history can’t work if the food didn’t measure up. The Delmonico’s steak medium rare was great. My wife had the Filet and got a positive review. Delmonico’s potatoes, very good. Topped of the meal with Baked Alaska. Would go back for a special meal when back in NYC. Service was what you would expect in this type of establishment. Very beautiful room too

Delmonico's is such a noted New York landmark. It's mentioned in so many movies and was a featured location in a recent book, Lillian Boxfish takes a walk. It just felt right to make a reservation to experience this iconic place. While it's been shined up I am happy to report it still has the old world feel and charm. The breads were wonderful, the salads, fresh with unique elements, and the special crabmeat shepherd's pie was truly unique. Service was friendly and doting in the right ways...add it to your NYC bucket list.

Delmonico's was just fine. The ambience is good except that most of the wait staff can't speak English very well and there is a lot of Eurotrash in evidence. The latter surprised me because of its position in the Financial District. We shared the Delmonico's rib eye steak and the monumental Hash Browns and the Baked Alaska, all signature dishes for the restaurant. I will go back.

What can I say about Delmonico's? I was at this restaurant before 9/11 and came back for its 180th anniversary celebration. I think the place is absolutely beautiful, food so delicious, service impeccable. I had Thomas Keller's recipe for shrimp shuffle as an appetizer and sea bass recipe from Michael White which was also delicious. My lemon drop martini was the best I've ever had anywhere. All in all, a magical evening with the food and ambience.

 (Sacramento)·Dined on September 9, 2017

This place is a landmark, an institution i.e. oldest restaurant and the best burgers. The reasons why we went . It was our first time there. The burgers were large ,juicy and seasoned perfectly. It came with the best fries I've ever had, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The servers were terrific but unfortunately had a disappointing experience because how we were treated by the receptionist and Maitre D'. I had made reservations for the "Grill Room" the receptionist directed us to the "Bar and Grill" downstairs, having to walk through the main dining area, which was empty. We were met by the Maitre D' who happened to be talking with a server . He asked 'how can I help you?' I told him I had a reservation for the grill room. He gave us a choice to sit at the bar or in a booth or table. It became obvious that reservations weren't necessary and later learned, by going to the restroom, that the grill room is a separate dining area and was closed for a private function that day. Needless to say, the receptionist and Maitre D' should had informed us of that and offered a table in the main dining area.

Introduced two friends to Delmonico's and they were impressed. Two of us ordered Delmonico's signature Rib-Eye steak and the "birthday gal" ordered chicken. Both of my friends praised their entrees; I found my steak less tender and not as perfectly cooked as the same cut I had a few months earlier, on my birthday. But every thing else we ordered was spot on: the creamy, mashed potatoes, our salad appetizers, the fried onions that came with the steaks, our wine choices and, of course, the coffee & signature Baked Alaska. My gift did NOT disappoint; that's what matters. It also doesn't hurt to be able to revisit those tastes and that experience the next evening by finishing any leftovers that Delmonico's generous portions allow you to take home!
