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.

i stopped in for dinner, on a Monday night, to celebrate my birthday. All of our waiters were excellent, especially Phillip. I wish I could say that about the manager on duty. He was more interested in flirting with the young hostess than anything else. My friend and I decided to split the 3lb. Bone in Ribeye and lobster after... More

A nice quiet restaurant with a fantastic bar. Good food, polite wait staff but if you're looking for a great place to stop for an after dinner drink, try their bar.

I've dined here with friends and family. The atmosphere is great. The decor has an old school charm that's nostalgic. Great wine list. Steaks cooked perfectly. Scrumptious desserts. Accommodating staff

This is one of the best places to eat in the city! Billy Oliva is a wonderful Chef, and works magic with food! I love the Delmonico steak, and it is hard to try something different, but I found myself wishing I had tried the fish, which was a special the night we were there, we watched it get deboned...

Philip the friendly waiter from Croacia made our birthday celebration a delight. He was a truly wonderful waiter who was attentive and helpful. In a very empty restaurant he balanced good service with our own privacy. The lobster, oysters, Delmonico steak and baked Alaska were a delight. The delmonico potatoes had burnt cheese topping but beneath the inedible crust was... More

I have been here for corporate events and Christmas parties for years, have always been disappointed in the catered food. Nothing impressive. However, willing to give them the benefit of the doubt I came here during summer restaurant week. Service is very friendly and nice.

I should have checked the lunch menu first. The steak we wanted was not listed. The fillet mingon had a surcharge therefore defeating the purpose of restaurant week. I had the short rib, which was excellent and my son had the striped bass. Very pricey but you are paying for old-world ambiance.

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
