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.

This is a nice steakhouse in the financial district in Manhattan. There's nearly 200 years of history associated with this place, so if you like eating where Abe Lincoln did, check this one off the bucket list and go. The focus of the menu is mainly on the steak, but they offer a few other options too. Steaks are not... More

We are visiting NYC and this dinner was excellent! We split a delmonico steak (approx 51$ and 20 ounces) served with onion straws. We added garlic mash and asparagus. So good. Also a Caesar Salad (with poached egg and anchovies) which was okay. Recommend all the way. Busy for a Tuesday (approx 80 percent capacity). Lots of food runners and... More

Not the least expensive place for dinner in Manhattan, but Delmonico's delivered everything you want for the price. The service and decor are top notch, and the food is amazing. Be sure to visit the Beaver St. location, as there are other locations and I make no guarantees regarding those.

We were staying not far from here so we took a short walk for a night out. The restaurant looked amazing but after a hard days sightseeing we decided we wanted a few drinks first so headed to the bar grill. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff behind the bar were excellent. It's nice when you can ask... More

Dining at Delmonico's is like stepping back in time - and loving it. Starting with the beautifully restored facade and interior appointments, the diner is presented with the ambiance of a bygone era. The menu is classic and the fare is outstanding. We shared appetizers: an excellent crab cake and the best Caesar Salad we've ever tasted. My wife had... More

Very good value for the quality of the food and service. Great recommendations for main course and wine. Great atmosphere. Went with friends but would have been a great spot for business dinner as well. We will be returning soon.

I decided to try out Delmonico's because I'm interest in NYC history. Although this isn't the "original" (which closed I believe during prohibition), it is in the same space and has the classic ambience of a good NYC steakhouse. We ate in the bar, which has a beautiful old mural. Both of us had steak frites, which is basically a... More

We were in NYC recently and everyone kept telling us we had to eat at Delmonico's, so on a rainy afternoon we took and cab and made our way over there. We were seated promptly - the place was nearly empty, but it did eventually fill up. I ordered soup and salad, and my friend ordered a wrap. And then... More

Had lunch there and had one heck of a steak lunch. Cooked to perfection this is the original home of Delmonico steaks and a bunch of other dishes some 100 years old. Located right in the middle of Wall Street and you pay Wall Street prices. Come hungary!
