good food long wait!

The food is good but not worth the wait during peak hours. They have call ahead seating(no reservations). Once seated, nice portions, good food, good service. Decent steaks, good Italian food. Try a side of greens (one is enough for four). Loud music,a good family restaurant.

The food was amazing, every selection, kind of difficult to choose a favorite. The staff were very attentive and helpful. They made great suggestions and the presentation of the food and the atmosphere was an A+.

We've been coming to Delmonico's for the past several years. In fact, it is one of our go-to restaurants in Albany. We always order the delicious sliced sirloin with the cabernet mushroom sauce, medium, some pink. DH's came perfectly cooked but mine was over-done, no pink at all except for a tiny slice at the end. Well, the manager was... More

This is a fun place for friends and family, the wait is a bit for a weekend night, however the bar is a fun place to hang while waiting for your table or eating dinner if you are with a few friends. We have made it a tradition on the holidays to stop and enjoy a drink with friends and... More

We have been Delmonico's customer's for years and I can tell you that the Albany location is my favorite. Friendly and hard working staff makes all the difference. Please stop at the bar and ask for Kathy or Christine. Jim is an outstanding executive that never misses a beat and has an eye on all things customer related. Please keep... More

A wonderful family luncheon, all eight of us had different entrees and were equally satsified. We tried the Utica Greens as an appetizer and loved them, tasty and delicious. The service was quick and attentive and always available as needed even though the restaurant was crowed. We would love to return if ever in the area again.

Food as usual, was delicious! The waitress, on the other hand, didn't want to give us the time of day. She only checked back with us 1x. Really surprised. Usually, the waitstaff is very attentive.

Food was excellent but WAY too much, you'll eat for days on the left overs. Service was attentive. A great choice for Italian or steak cravings.
