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.

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

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Delmonicos. Disappointing at the very least. First of all, I had the Lobster Bisque. Good enough (not as good as Capital Grill) but it came in a bowl that you had to dip your spoon deep into to get any soup. The sides on the bowl were curved so high, my... More

We visited last July for my partners birthday and it was exceptional! We revisited again and have to say we were blown away, David out host was exceptional not only suggesting a great bottle of wine but interacting on a truly brilliant level! To top the night off we were gifted one of Delmonicos famous cook books! It's fair to... More

This very classy restaurant is a wonderful place to spend your evening at. It is pretty expensive but you really get what you pay for. The staff is very professional and welcoming and the food is just amazing. If you're more than one person and I would recommend you to only order one side dish as the portions are very... More

Had an excellent dinner, steaks with sides of asparagus, rage/cauliflower, Brussels sprouts. All very tasty and well prepared. Excellent biscuits and bread rolls to start. The bill for three came with 20% gratuity already added and the waiter never mentioned this. Had I not noticed I would have added another tip (planned to tip 20% anyway) on top of this,... More
