We have dined there many times. The space is limited- very noisy for an upscale restaurant. Some menu items were excellently prepared. Wait staff was exceptional. Last experience was that we needed reservations for 2 at 5:30 during the off season. I saw the nostrils of the hostess when we told her that we did not have reservations. Of course,... More

My DH & I had dinner at Delmonico's in early November. The food was delicious and prepared with care. We both had beef steaks which were done exactly as we requested. The atmosphere was inviting and quiet enough that we could enjoy conversation. The waitress was very professional; we were seated quickly; and given a bill quickly when requested as... More

High quality food served professionally and attentively. Prices are high as is the quality for dinner. Lunches are a bargain and are of equal quality as dinner. You will find an impressive wine list a Del. The Delmonico loft is a great option for special events. If you are looking for parking, a public parking garage is just a block... More

Booked this after a dismal attempt to eat at Vertex at the Alex Johnson (our reservation was bumped). The staff was nice, and the food spectacular. Expensive by South Dakota standards, but darn cheap if you live/frequent large cities. Excellent wine list, and expertly prepared and presented food.

I really hate to break the good review bubble going on here, but we had dinner 8 Nov 2014 here and we can't rave about it. My wife wasn't very hungry and ordered asparagus soup. It was an embarrassment - thin and watery with oil floating on top, not heated properly, lacking a cream base, it was difficult for her... More

We ate here on the last night of a 2 week photo shoot. It made the trip complete. this place could easily compete with the best steakhouses here in NYC. Friendly non rushed service, great meat and a very cool vibe. We were most pleased to end our SD stay with this terrific meal.

We ate here last week. I had the Kona Crusted Ribeye with Caramelized Shallot Butter, which was excellent. Another in our group had the "On Green Dolphin Street" steak. Both of us had to take some home, since the steaks were nice sized. Each steaks were cooked just as we had requested. Service was very good. This is a nice... More
