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.

If you like modern barren establishments with menus full of words borrowed from Asian and African languages, and especially if you are fan of waiters who familiarize with you as much as they can and more, this is not the place for you. But if you have visions of Jenny Lind, the Nightingale, having diner here every night there after... More

In all of my travels I have had a "Delmonico" steak from San Francisco to Miami back to Los Angeles and throughout the mid west. It was finally in New York, NY, where I discovered the true "Delmonico" steak. Of course, that was discovered after having dined at the restaurant of origin, "Delmonico's" on Beaver St. in the Financial District... More

The ambiance of the restaurant is old-school, Wall Street New York. It's certainly a great place to have an intimate, romantic dinner or a business gathering. Service is great. However, the food is unimpressive. The food is expensive, but unfortunately, it's good but not great. There's a mismatch between price and taste.

If you want to eat and don't know what, don't come here... There are so many options that you will be more confuse. Sandwiches, salads, regular foods (cajun rice, fried chicken, pork, etc), coffee, tea, sodas and many more.

Been here numerous times for both business and pleasure. Never been disappointed. Great old time bar and restaurant. Highly recommend the Delmonico's steak. Gets crowded during the week due to it's financial district location. make sure to make a reservation.

Kristijan my server was very friendly and personable, with an eye for fine attention to detail. He's service was above and beyond and I enjoyed every minute of time. The entire FOH staff was soo friendly and... More

Joined a conference dinner, and loved the atmosphere, the service and the food. Fabulous steak, and unique cheesecake in a red glace. Would definitely recommend...especially after a wall street, lower Manhattan day.

A friend and I dined here during restaurant week and our experience was just lovely. The restaurant is beautifully appointed from ceiling to floor...just visually beautiful. There was a set menu for the $38 special and all the choices were appealing. We started with lobster bisque which was silky and delicious. Though this is a steak house, I ordered the... More

Old Steakhouse in it's original location. The prices are sky high but the food lives up to it. Nice for a quiet and intimate lunch or for a classic business dinner. Iconic steak house.

We came to Delmonico's on a Friday during "restaurant week" and it was packed. Although we just choose from the "restaurant week" menu the food was excellent. It wasn't only very delicious, but a great deal, too. Our server was friendly, professional and entertaining. The restaurant itself is very special with a great ambiance.
