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.

Restaurant Week Treat

We dropped in midweek and were seated immediately. It's a beautifully decorated restaurant, one of the few left from the Gilded Age and surprising low level of sound, even when full. The soup and salad were very nice; steaks perfectly cooked and flavorful accompanied by silky mashed potatoes; a... read more

I was here for a business function in their private room and will rate it an average restaurant to be generous. Nothing special. I picked the restaurant based on it's location, within walking distance from Wall Street were we were based. Average food and average service. I would not recommend and most likely will not go back, there are much... More

**WINTER 2016 RESTAURANT WEEK REVIEW** I made a terrible, terrible mistake. Don't ask me why I did it because I'm not even sure I can explain it myself. I came to Delmonico's for restaurant week and I ordered...FISH. [DUN, DUN, DUN!] I just wasn't in the mood for steak that night so I veered off course. It was their fish... More

There are few restaurants left that are from the old days where dining was considered an event. Here it still is. The art, architecture, atmosphere, service and food is impressive. The iceberg salad was enough to leave room for the main meal, bits of bacon, pieces of blue cheese and a little bit of red onion it was very good.... More

Came here for restaurant week, so kept to the price fix +, started with the lobster Newburg. That was simply amazing and not in a heavy cream sauce or in puff pastry, after eating this there is no going back. Next petit filet mignon, this can be a mixed bag as its not the most flavorful of cuts, again served... More

This was my third time at Delmonico's and I was very disappointed. The first two times, the food was amazing, but I went for Restaurant Week and was very disappointed with the food and service. While the appetizer, Rock Shrimp Risotto and Lobster Newburg was amazing, our entree of fish with schnitzel and mushroom and roast chicken was salty and... More

I currently went here for restaurant week and was excited to try their specialty: Lobster Newburg. There was a prix fixe menu and I ordered the clam chowder, Lobster Newberg, and New York cheesecake. I would say the clam chowder was awesome, followed by the cheesecake and then the lobster. The Lobster Newburg was good, just not great. My friend... More

We had dinner here with friends over the past weekend and had a great time. The food was excellent (the Delmonico house special was perfect!) as was the service. The bar area is also very nice. Definitely worth a stop.

Based om TripAdvisor reviews and history of this restaurant we decided its a must to visit. Food was good but not outstanding. Meat was burned on outside and this should not happen. Indeed nice old restaurant, you can feel the history in there.

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. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
