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

Filet mignon was just plain terrible. Two people at the table had it. I ate mine despite the poor quality (I doubt it was filet mignon). The other was pretty much shoe leather and was not eaten. To their credit, manager did not charge table for that second steak. We would never return.

My boyfriend and I decided to give this a try since it was our three year anniversary!! Let me start by saying the place is beautiful inside, we made reservations so we were seated immediately. Our server, Michelle, was impeccable!! She was so genuine and explained the menu very clearly. We ordered a bottle of wine, she went the extra... More

We were attending a Navy Convention in Albany, NY and used the restaurant to feed a busload of us. Service was super and the food was wonderful.

I loved the food, the wait staff was very attentive; even got a picture with a waitress holding our thank you plaque from the association. I disliked being so full, lol.

We held our Navy MSO Association Inc 2014 Crew reunion in Albany New York., Drove a motor coach full of folks to a planned meal at Delmonicos and everyone was totally pleased full and excited to have been there. Nearly everyone left with more food than they could eat. Excellent staff and management and extremely nice atmosphere. I highly Recommend... More

Went early Father's Day. Seated right away (but the hats on the hostesses really should go). Calamari app very good-tender very lightly battered. Caesar salad very good-crisp and garlicky although no anchovies on it. Garlic 'butter' served with bread very strange. I also think it may be crisco by the way it feels in your mouth. Had Delmonico steak med-rare.... More

If you advertise yourself as a steakhouse, you should be able to consistently deliver steaks cooked according to the preference of the patrons. Our two 24 oz. Delmonico steaks, ordered medium rare, were overcooked to medium plus. They were very fatty, but the menu promised greater flavor due to the fatty cut, so we accept that. However the flavor was...
