“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We go to this place once a month while traveling through. The staff is always pleasant, the food is fantastic (get the Sinatra Chicken!) and everything always tastes FRESH! Do not forget to share a cannoli!

“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The food is outstanding, a little expensive though. Not somewhere you can visit regularly. But on special occasions this would definately be a pick.

“Much Better Than Expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

When I was given a gift card to Delmonico's I wasn't really impressed. I though their pasta might be good, but steaks? No way. But boy, was I wrong, and I'm happy to say it. Delmonico's gave me the best steak I've had in a long time.
I ordered the filet portobello ($19.99), medium rare with extra mushrooms, and whoever the chef was, s/he hit it dead on. The cut was hot and juicy on the outside and warm and red on the inside and tender, tender, tender! I would be glad to go back again for that kind of steak. It came with a side of angel hair pasta that was cooked to perfection, and drizzled with olive oil and fresh parmesan cheese.
And don't forget the appetizers. I had the jumbo shrimp cocktail ($10.99) and was pleased that they really were "jumbo." Delmonico's also makes its own cocktail sauce which complements the shrimp very nicely.
The antepasto ($10.99) was huge! The menu said it was enough for two people. It was enough for four! The salami and cappicola were very thinly sliced and fresh, and colorful. Also included was crispy lettuce, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, pepperoncinis, and cubes of sharp cheddar cheese.
The wine list is also good. I had a glass of the Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon ($8.75) and my date had the Red Rock Merlot ($6.75). We were both very pleased.
Atmosphere isn't great for quiet, romantic dinners. It's more a family restaurant and there a a lot of little kids running around and lots of noise.
But if you can overlook those, definitely try Delmonico's. I think you might be pleasantly surprised.

“Good food, great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Delmonico's is well-known in the local area for its steak and Italian dishes. They are all done well, and the flavor and feel are right for each dish. But what makes it special is the care they take for people with special diets. No one leaves feeling that they were left out, or that there was something they missed.

Across the street from Hampton Inn. Portions are generous and the food authentically Italian. You'll enjoy the charicatures on the wall...
