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.

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...

We had lunch at this restaurant since we were in the area. We liked it and found it to be a nice experience. 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

Came off the Staten Island Ferry and walked to Delmonico's for dinner and history. Caesar salad, "the steak", and cheesecake, with wine in a room paneled in dark wood and ambience filling every space. Ate later than usual. Time to leave and patrons were going strong. Rooms filled with happy people. Going to NY city? Make time for food history.... More

This was our last meal in New York and we had looked forward to it for months. We both decided on the special menu as it contained three of the restaurant's signature dishes. We had the Lobster Newburg as a starter, the 20oz rib-eye for mains and the Baked Alaska for dessert. We were in and out in an hour... More

Met a friend for dinner here and of course I had to try the steak. Had the Delmonico salad to start and it had thoroughly enjoyed the yogurt dressing (had my doubts at first). We shared the porterhouse for two king crab mac n cheese and has browns. The service was great and I can't wait to go back.

What a beautiful place. It had such an elegant ambience but not pretentious. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Truly one of those places that don't exist much anymore.
