We chose a safe bet. The restaurant was large and well-staffed enough to handle our group of 16. Broad variety of choices were properly prepared to satisfy everyone --- but this is not to be confused with cuisine. The portions were large and no one walked away hungry. Decor is a step back into the 1950's, it was a bit... More

We have been here many times on our trips up to Albany, but this visit was not up to par. Our server was excellent, but the atmosphere and food were lacking. At the next booth, one male patron was actually entertaining his baby by grabbing and twirling the glass chandelier. I don't really find this acceptable and the manager needed... More

I visited Delmonico's on Sunday August 31st, 2014, and will never be returning ! Here's why: (1) I was a party of 12 for my friend's birthday. Our reservation was for 7:15. We were not seated until 8:00. (2) I was there early so I went to the bar for a drink and an appetizer. The dining room mananger came... More

Food was surprisingly decent, the inside makes you feel like you have been murdered in a bad Soprano's re-run. Amazingly tacky-painful in fact.

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.
