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.

Make reservations and get there early! It's busy because it's good! Their steak was juicy and tender. I loved the food and atmosphere here.

“The best steak I have ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Quite simply it was - the steak was incredible. Ok it is not 'cheap', but I believe it was worth every single cent. Wow is what we kept saying. Over snd over. The service was flawless, and would recommend this restaurant for a posh evening out in New York. This will be hard to top in future.

“Great Food but better go early or you will hear about it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Oh brother! We were looking forward to a swanky steakhouse dinner and made reservations for 9:30. As soon as we were seated the waiter 'reminded' us, oh about twenty times, the kitchen was about to close and then proceeded to be socially awkward the rest of the meal. Bummer. But the food was amazing. Steak and potatos were outstanding.
