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.

Had great expectations as I had been to the Delmonico's in Las Vegas and it was memorable. What will be memorable here was the noise level. Service is outstanding but they do push to turn the tables. The risotto was good but luke warm at best. The ribeye was cooked perfectly but as others have mentioned, the actual cut was... More

Was introduced to this financial district historic institution as a green 22 year old starting on Wall Street eons ago. I though it was grand. Over the years I went there a few times whenever fate and fortune made it possible. This week (now retired and far from the canyons of "the street") I decided to go for a "restaurant... More

Dinner in May of 2014. Had heard great things and its reputation certainly preceeds it. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere was nice. The food was...pretty good. The steak (Dry-Aged Ribeye) was well-prepared, but the actual cut of meat was just OK. More fat and gristle than you would expect from a high-end cut. Side (hash browns) were overcooked and... More

Business Casual Dress is now OK, one man had shorts, no problem...Don't be scared off by the white tablecloth look and feel. Excellent Meal & Service!

I loved the historic atmosphere. The staff was very friendly. We had the Delmonico Steak, the lemon cheesecake (my favorite), the Baked Alaska, the cheese tray (very good), asparagus and the broccoli. Everything was very flavorful. The Baked Alaska doesn't come out flaming. The bread that they serve was some of the best that I had ever tasted. I have... More

It's in a great place, near Stone street, last preserved strip of a wall strict district of a 100 years ago. And it has atmosphere, soft light, elegant environment, gentle-spoken waiters. Wine list is good, as long as you don't care prices, and you stick with French or Chile. US and Italy are badly represented but it's mostly due to... More

Attentive service and great food. Very traditional and it was a very memorable visit to a New York restaurant that felt like a piece of Wall Street history. Definitely worth a visit.

It's a great steakhouse but service was spotty. I ordered the Delmonico steak, roasted cauliflower and cheesecake (to go ; it was missing the sauce and ice cream I had planned on enjoying in the taxi home which was disappointing). The waiters were border line rude to us once we refused wine and appetizers to concentrate on the entrees. I... More

Like many native New Yorkers there are many famous and historic attractions in my hometown that I have yet to visit and experience. Until recently, the world famous Delmonico's restaurant was one of them. I was graciously invited to dine here for my birthday and I must say that it will be one of my most memorable birthdays from now... More

A very traditional, beautiful restaurant, we'd always planned to go on our recent trip to New York & we weren't disappointed. We were warmly welcomed & as we'd got there early, asked if it was okay to have a drink at the bar first. As usual, I couldn't decide what to drink so the girl decided for me & produced... More
