“Best lunch experience in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

The pre-fix lunch at Del Posto offers an opportunity to sample master Chef Mark Ladner's cooking at a reasonable price tag. The pasta with brown butter and lobster starter were outstanding. Save room for desert-we sampled 3....inspired!

“a level of Italian sophisication”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

an old standard, Del Posto serves great italian food in a beautiful setting. The dinner service was excellent. we chose the 5 course a la carte and what we had was amazing. the Octopus was fresh, succulent and prepared perfectly. The steak tartare was delicious and well flavored. The lamb was moist and well prepared to allow the flavors to shine through. Unfortunately the pork was dry. The pasta stole the show with amazing combinations of truffle, cream and crispy morels. The service was excellent although the sommerlier was rather snarky when we did not like the wine she chose. Really, is that necessary? Despite it all, we enjoyed our experience. The venue was beautiful, romantic and our waiter attentive and informative. Worth a 2nd visit. With such great restaurants in NYC, this is yet another to add to the list. A must-do

“Almost perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. We ordered the 5 course meal and almost everything was really superb. The only exception was my lamb dish. Service was 5 stars, old school, hard to find in the US, done by professional waiters -not some college kids. Yeah, it's pricy but it is NYC upscale dinner. Also, the pasta is done like in Italy and not as in most of the places in the US (the delicious lasagna is a very good example). Overall, it was a perfect birthday celebration.
