We were at a historic restaurant that created the steak delmonico and created the eggs benedict, and the first restaurant in our country to even have a written menu. The staff is amazing. The bar is cozy. The main dining room takes you to a different era that just makes your feel so elegant and alive.... The food is beyond... More

Built in 1838 and still better than ever. The history is everywhere to be seen and touched. The waiters and every staff member is friendly and very efficient. We had a great Chardonnay, Sumptous Lump Crab Cake, Salmon and excellent fresh garden salad. What a lunch to remember in the main dining room. You can also reserve a spot in... More

Delmonico's has a reputation of excellence and they live up to that reputation. Every part of the experience was outstanding. The food was incredible, the service was top notch and the atmosphere set the standard that all other restaurants should strive for. Although the owners have changed over the years and the current incarnation has little connection to the past... More

Drank in barroom at elegant table. Wonderful considerate waiter. Impeccable service and atmosphere that was definitely a New York experience. Like being in a 1940's movie.

Celebrated an anniversary dinner and every bite was delicious! Hubby had the filet and I enjoyed the lobster Newburgh carbonara. Being from Maine and knowing what a good lobster tastes like - the lobster dish was delicious. The service was excellent. And our celebratory dessert was amazing!

This visit to Delmonico's in New York City was a special occasion, and I was certainly counting on the quality fair at the renowned restaurant to put a special touch on the evening.

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.
