Delmonico's is a very popular spot for those who like large quantities of Italian food and don't have an especially discerning palate. It is certainly acceptable fare, but nothing out of the ordinary. There is a huge variety and literally something that would appeal to most. One in my party had the mixed grille, which was chicken francaise, a boneless... More

My wife and I came here for dinner with our son. We ordered the tomato and mozzarella salad first. Our son ordered the fillet with asparagus. He said it was very good! My wife and I shared the chicken Parmigiana. It too was very good! My wife ordered a glass of wine, my son ordered a dirty martini, and I... More

I eat here on every trip to Albany area. Last visited DEC 2013. I even ordered the same meal (the Zuppa soup and the sliced sirloin steak (1 pound, Cabernet mushroom sauce and garlic mashed)). Splurged on a dessert this time - the berries with sweet cream - came in a martini glass. Service and atmosphere great.

Great Ravioli (house made) and seafood linguini if you don't mind listening to Frank Sinatra all night. The decor is mostly caracature's of probably famous people. Seemed schlocky to me but to each their own.

This is my husbands favorite restaurant for special occasions. I ordered steak strips with mushrooms and gravy. It looked delicious but while eating I chewed on something hard. Turned out it was cardboard from the mushroom box which the manager said happens often. Well, that did it for me, never going back!!!!!

A 24oz well-marbled ribeye seared to keep it juicy and tasty. And, for less than $24. It's hard to get a decent rib eye in the grocery store for that price. The Mozarella Fritta appetizer was awesome. And I love the Italian music and the "mobster" garb of the servers. Very cool restaurant.

(8 OR 9 pieces) the clams were very good (5) the sauce you need to be careful there there was some extremely hot peppers in It. The service... More

Have always had a good meal here , great service and an enjoyable atmosphere. A tad pricey all things considered but a good choice when in the mood for steak.

Our first visit to Del's and it was average amidst all the hype. The best part of the meal was the friendly and effecient service of the staff. Everyone spoke to us like we were old friends. We felt very much at home. I was a little disappointed in the "24 oz. Ribeye" There was no way my steak was... More

The food was very good. I find the prices a little high considering the meal does not come with a salad or soup. One note of advice, if you want to be able to hear your conversations do not sit near the bar because one of the drink machines makes a very loud noise when being used, which was often.... More
