America's first fine dining restaurant, Delmonico's has been serving fine American food to New York's connoisseurs in its premier location at the heart of Manhattan's financial district. Since opening at 56 Beaver Street in 1837, Delmonico's has been renowned as the birthplace of the Delmonico Steak, Delmonico Potatoes, Eggs Benedict, Lobster Newburg, and Baked Alaska. Upon opening, the original Delmonico's offered then-unheard of luxuries such as private dining rooms, an extensive wine cellar, innovative cuisine, and, above all, warm, personal service. Today, the restaurant continues to honour its heritage with the same warm hospitality and fine cuisine. Delmonico's menu features a range of traditional dishes in addition to the prime Delmonico Steak, aged to perfection in the aging room. Having introduced many dishes and dining customs to America, to dine at Delmonico's is to experience history.

Great Steak, Great Sides, seafood could be better

I had lunch at Delmonico's for business. Service was typical of any high end NYC steakhouse. We ordered the Seafood Tower, I have had better(fresher) seafood and dipping sauces elsewhere. I really like the Delmonico Steak, it was very tasty and cooked to perfection. One of the better steaks I have... read more

Went on a Friday night. Noise level was moderate but bearable. The food was outstanding. My wife and I both had the Delmonico steak. Then the baked Alaska. Awesome.

Depending on the night, Delmonico's is almost constantly an outstanding experience. A New York institution you cannot deny that it is a great venue and has a vibe that spells out legacy. The birthplace of the Delmonico steak - the food is constantly delivered with high quality and service. The sides are acceptable - although after dining there for over... More

A real old school high end steakhouse. Our table had a variety of steaks and all were excellent and cooked as ordered. Very good variety of sides. It is the only place that I will order the brussels sprouts. Service was excellent as well.

This place has been serving steaks a long time. The name Delmonicos opened restaurants on NY back in the 1850's and despite the name they weren't Italian but Swiss nationals. It has an old school feel. Based in the heart of wall Street lunch is a mix of tourists and business men. Service is excellent and professional. They have, as... More

I've wanted to visit this restaurant since i was 13, but frankly, i expected to be disappointed. Still, when given the chance, my wife and i decided to visit a landmark restaurant. My wife chose the Lobster Newburg, and me not being a Ribeye guy, chose the New York Strip steak. And, without a doubt, it was the best steak... More

I`ve been to many NY restaurants and we are a family of carnivore`s so we love steak places. My family joined me on a business trip and we all went to Delmonico`s for Valentine`s Day.

My daughter who works in the area took me for a cocktail and appetizers after seeing a Round A Bout Saturday matinee performance. As we had no reservation, we took a seat at the upstairs bar and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The Manhattan garnished with three real cherries was divine as were the tomato salad and buffalo shrimp. Thank you to... More

3 of us stopped in about dinner time for a few none alcohol drinks and appetizers. The staff and management did not rush us at all even though they were crowded. The calamari was the BEST I have ever had!!
