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've wanted to visit this restaurant since i was 13, but frankly, i expected to be disappointed. Still, when given the chance, my wife and i decided to visit a landmark restaurant. My wife chose the Lobster Newburg, and me not being a Ribeye guy, chose the New York Strip steak. And, without a doubt, it was the best steak... More

I`ve been to many NY restaurants and we are a family of carnivore`s so we love steak places. My family joined me on a business trip and we all went to Delmonico`s for Valentine`s Day. We were not disappointed. From the friendly, knowledgable service to the fantastic steak and sides everything was fantastic. In addition to this, you are dining... More

My daughter who works in the area took me for a cocktail and appetizers after seeing a Round A Bout Saturday matinee performance. As we had no reservation, we took a seat at the upstairs bar and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The Manhattan garnished with three real cherries was divine as were the tomato salad and buffalo shrimp. Thank you to... More

3 of us stopped in about dinner time for a few none alcohol drinks and appetizers. The staff and management did not rush us at all even though they were crowded. The calamari was the BEST I have ever had!!

We went there for an extra Christmas Celebration. The hostess was gracious enough to accommodate us even though we were a little bit late due to protesters all around. The service was good and the wine list OK. The food was delicious, especially the risoto and the file mignon. Both were to die for with the right consistence and cooked... More

Late Dinner - service excellent, burrata salad is the best I have ever eaten!! Wine list is ok and fair price for NYC. Grilled swordfish and risotto was great, a bit too much salt, but a small point. Totally worth the trip and will go back.

So I finally tried this place since it's famous and been here since 1800s. I must admit it's a bit intimidating from the pictures because I don't really dress up. Although I pass by the restaurant at times I never could find myself able to walk up those stairs. The entrance is quite grand. However, upon walking around the restaurant... More

I have, on several visits to New York, wanted to try Delmonico's. After all, they have a steak named after them! We were somewhat surprised that the restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday night but this made for a nice atmosphere. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We both ordered Delmonico Steaks of course. I prefer my meat... More

My wife and I dined while in NYC for her birthday. Previously, we've eaten at Post House, Smith and Wollensky's, Maloney and Porcelli etc. Based on looking at something about them, I was encouraged to go. Boy was I wrong. While the ambiance and service was great, the food is an abysmal failure. Notably, the quality of the meat in... More
