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.

Eggs Benedict where is was invented!

The main restaurant was booked out for a private party, so I ate in the Next Door Grill. This is where busy New Yorkers come for lunch and the turnover was quick, but the excellent service means you don't feel rushed.

We loved this place. On entering everything seems to sparkle with soft light and crystal. The service was attentive and actually caring, never automatic. We both started with an iceberg wedge type salad that was done with the best blue cheese dressing I have ever had. My friend had a chicken dish that was done perfectly, with a delightful choice...

We ate here on a recent trip and we were very impressed with the service and the food, particularly the steaks which were huge. The whole experience was very memorable.

The food was very good and the steak great but we have had better meals in NYC for the same price if not less than Demonic's. Rather a dark place but very attentive wait staff.

After being in the city for 9 days on business I decided to splurge on a nice dinner my final night. Going into the place I saw that I wanted the delmonico steak which was $51. It kinda blew my mind that if you order that, and just that, that is all you get. A slab of beef with nothing... More

I loved the idea of this restaurant, creators of the Delmonico steak and baked Alaska, however When I asked the waiter for a recommendation on how to prepare the steak they could not give one, he self proclaimed he'd worked there for over 20 years, you'd assume they'd have recomendations, also the baked Alaska desert came out burnt.

The ambience alone sets this restaurant apart from many others. The 3 of us opted for seafood starter then fish main courses accompanied by excellent wine selection. Everything looked excellent and diners around us were all complimenting the food, service and decor. The wine glasses are a lovely touch.

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.
