“Food as expected, service better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

With any steakhouse, there is an inherent quality presumed, expansive wine list, and attentive service. Paramount to our experience was the wait staff; it is not often for items to be explained with favors and textures, rather than just the ingredients.
Being in town frequently for business, the restaurant would be a great place for regular meals, however the inconvenient location outside the city center.

“Absolutely superb meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Delmonico's is a beautiful restaurant with attentive service, perfectly-cooked steak (NY Strip and Filet) and a large, tasty portion of lamb chops. The Caesar salad was excellent and the mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. There were 5 of us at the table (the teens split a strip steak) and everyone agreed that the food was excellent. Mixed drinks from the bar were also very good.

Be prepared, though: it's quite expensive.

“Awesome meals and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

We stayed here at the Hilton and ate dinner at the restaurant. The meals were exceptional. My steak was perfect. The bacon wrapped scallops were well prepared and seasoned. The chopped salad is unique and tasty. The baked potato was huge and came with mounds of extras. The wine was among the best I've ever had. The only down side is that you need to order everything a la carte but you should skip the extras as the meal is large enough. The meals are expensive but worth it. Do desert also.
