“Always a perfect night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Bartenders always attentive! Taken care of during our "Happy Hour" and then the meal....Host/Hostess stand right on top of everything at all times. Requested Tiffany, our favorite, and the people in charge took us to our table. Tiffany (busy with 4 tables) was all over our needs the entire time. Excellent service and the food, as always, was awesome! One of our favorites in the Capital Region! Thanks so much for your hard work!

“Just another chain resturant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Most recent visit with family was on a Saturday evening. With reservation we waited almost an hour. Waiting would not be a problem except the place is always jammed and there is literally no place to stand without being in the way of someone.

Once seated, the wait staff rush the orders to get you back out the door. For instance, salads delivered before appetizers. While the salads and appetizers are still on the table, the entrees appear.

While my husband & I were eating, our waitress came over & grabbed our son's plate (he had gone to the men's room). We had to stop her to let her know he was still eating (come on...didn't she see the shrimp & pasta in the bowl???).

Another beef with this resturant is salads are an up charge. Seems to me the cost of the meals are high enough to cover the 'standard' house salad.

We've been here many times. After this experinece we made the decision to not go back. It's like a factory.......they push people in & out. And it's just a chain resturant. There must be a local Italian eatery in the Albany area. Any recommendations?????

“Great food and great service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Ate here with 10 folks from work after a conference. Great service and very accommodating for large groups. I have been to the Delmonico's in Syracuse and Utica as well. The Utica greens at this restaurant were not quite as good as the others for some reason, but not bad. Really can't go wrong here for an Italian style steak house. Great place.

“One of our favorites in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have been to Delmonicos many many times and I don't think we've ever had a bad meal. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. Waitstaff has always been friendly. If you come during a busy time you may have a long wait. They do good business because the food is good. We have even done our traditional Christmas Eve dinner here a couple times because it is a place many people like. Plenty of choices on the menu. 1 Pound of Lasagna!! Wow.
