Description: 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.

Delmonico's is a wonderful restaurant. It is beautiful, traditional and has nice private party room. The food is excellent. For a more casual atmosphere sit in the grill room.

The interior of the restaurant is beautiful! The walls are covered in dark wood paneling, and the whole place gives off a steakhouse vibe. The service was excellent and the table was set very nicely. They could have won me over with the china alone! Of course, the main attraction was the food, and our dishes were all superb. We... More

I have been bringing clients for years on business to Delmonico's. They always are consistent in all aspects, good quality in particular, service and ambiance. For NYC the steaks are excellent and reasonable priced. Seafood dishes are superb, always a fantastic meal. One of my very favorites.

Ate dinner here recently with business colleagues. The food was good, service was attentive,atmosphere was good. As a gluten-intolerant vegetarian I found dishes I could enjoy - something that is unusual in an Italian restaurant. My meat-eating friends enjoyed their meals as well.

If you want to feel transported into the early nineteenth century in terms of a culinary experience, Delmonico's in the Financial District is worth the experience. Renoir type decor, silverware, and the house where the restaurant is held speaks to its historical splendour. As to their cuisine did not want to miss for a lunch their famed Lobster Newburg, a...

Definitely not the new hip/cool steak houses you will find in NY but felt quite classy and historical The starters were very good (sea food and salads) the variety of steaks for the main was also very...

The classic ny steakhouse. They have a good array of steaks and fish on the menu. Old world atmosphere and first class service make this a good dinner choice downtown.

Delmonico's bills themselves as the oldest fine dining restaurant in America, so of course it seemed like the perfect place to go on a date with my wife. From the moment you walk in, you can feel the history pulsing through the establishment. We were promptly seated for dinner and my wife got the lobster entree which was invented here... More
