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.

Amazing building, great atmosphere. I feel that management know this and so may be resting on their laurels. Staff were average until tgey received my tip and then became very talkative and jolly. Food was good and portions of steak ridiculously huge (most locals use a doggy bag!) I would recommend this restaurant because of its very obvious history but... More

My wife and I booked a table for 2 at this NYC establishment when we recently visited the city and in the "special instructions" indicated "intimate table for 2 because this is a special occasion", but more on this in a minute. We walked into this very well-appointed restaurant for our 7 p.m. reservation and were seated immediately, we were... More

We went here for a friend's birthday. What a wonderful time. They gave us a private room since we were such a big group. Everything from the wait staff to the food was superb. I had the filet mignon, my husband had the Delmonicos steak. Both were cooked perfectly and seasoned well. Highly recommend. The atmosphere had such sharp style,... More

Delmonico's, a Wall Street steakhouse classic in a wonderful flat-iron, is worth a visit if only to try the famous Lobster Newberg. However, I don't think it's great value compared with the wealth of other choices in NYC

I enjoyed a fabulous Delmonico steak at this restaurant that invented the cut! It's an old school steak house with sides to match. It was delicious and service was outstanding.

On a recent trip to NYC my sister treated me to a belated birthday dinner. When we arrived the staff couldn't be friendlier, the food was great and the staff friendly but professional. Yes it was expensive but this is a place for a special occasion. Had a wonderful time could not fault anything.

The manager was awesome. He helped us a great deal and was a true asset to the restaurant. The service was great and very attentive. We both had steak which was one of the best steak we ever had. The wine list was astronomical in its variety. The ambience was very historical, and the menu was extensive. Overall good food,... More

I took two coworkers for a nice steak dinner and as a first time diner had much higher expectations based on the history. I found this to be hype as the 40 Day Aged Bone In Ribeye lacked the concentration of flavor expected for this cut of meat and the tenderness for medium rare. The appetizer of cured bacon with...

I recently went to Delmonico's after not having been there in quite some time. I ordered the Clams Casino. Delicious! Just the right amount of bacon, garlic, sauce and they were cooked perfectly. I then had the Steak on toast points.It was steak with carmelized onions, bleu cheese served on toast points. It was cooked just as I requested and... More
