Extremely disappointed. Came 4000 miles here for my birthday meal. The service was almost teenage, none of the staff had any customer skills at all. Far too rushed, made too much noise and had showed no interest all in their customers. Probably better off working at macdonalds, they might learn something. They should come to a comparatively priced (very expensive)... More

Horrible rude service, delih person was abominable, will never come back again. Was expecting an order at 6:15 am, spoke to the man at the counter to make sure there was no mustard to which I'm allergic, he refused to answer me, when I patiently and calmly asked again he stormed off and refused to make them, after two colleagues...

This restaurant competes with the finest restaurants NYC has to offer. The staff wreaks of professionalism and attention to detail. This was a last minute decision. And we did not have a reservation. The hostess moved heaven and earth so that we could have a table. And it was a lovely table in a beautiful adorned dining room with really... More

I stopped in on a Friday afternoon and ate at the bar, the drinks were stiff, but very expensive, and the burger was absolutely wonderful. It had thick cut bacon, an eggs benedict egg and sauce on it served on english muffin bread, so good. It was one of the best burgers I've had, but a single drink, no side,... More

Came here for a business dinner. Yes, I understand that this is a steakhouse, but the menu is so limited and so overly priced that it is not funny. Saute spinach for $12, and it wasn't that great. I got their signature cut and was very disappointed. The steak looked black and extremely salty. Their medium is definitely on the... More

I'm not the foremost authority on steakhouses, but I've been to steakhouses for my birthday dinner for probably 2 decades (in DC, Baltimore, NYC and Vegas) and this is my favorite thus far. I like the history of some of the old steakhouses in New York, but this captures everything best for me. From the original Pompeii columns you see... More

While at a business conference in the Financial District, I went to a business dinner at Delmonico's. I think that one test of a really good restaurant is how well it handles large parties, when the chefs have to produce and serve a batch of high-quality meals simultaneously. By that standard, the kitchen and waitstaff performed well; everyone at our... More

My husband and I, along with the brother and sister in law, visited Delmonico's on a quick trip to NYC. I'm not proud to say it, but we are what you would consider "food snobs". The waiter was very patient when we first arrived as we had many questions about the menus (drinks and food). He was thorough and friendly.... More

Make reservations. This location seems like it would not be busy on week nights but it can be. The bar next door also serves great food. Oysters were fresh and the steaks were great. Large portions overall.

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.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
