Description: Del Posto is the richest and most refined creation of Joe Bastianich, Lidia Bastianich and Executive Chef Melissa Rodriguez. In October of 2010, Del Posto received a glowing four-star review from The New York Times, the first Italian restaurant to do so in nearly 40 years. At Del Posto, the ambiance of European luxury, palate-enlightening cuisine, polished service, and a world-renowned wine list culminate in an Italian dining experience unlike any other. Del Posto is proud to hold the coveted Relais & Chateaux distinction, a 5 Diamond Award from AAA, and the Grand Award from the Wine Spectator.

An amazing way to celebrate a special birthday with friends. The dining room is beautiful and the service was flawless. The wine service was incredible and every effort was made to make us happy. We weren't rushed throughout a four hour dinner. Everything was delicious. The ingredients were fresh, flavorful and combined in such interesting ways. Unique bread service. Yummy tuna and a delectable pork dish. Many small courses that satisfied perfectly. Two birthday celebrations so far. Looking forward to the next one!

This was always my favorite of all time and I've been to many upscale restaurants. Don't know if the absence of Mario has anything to do with it, but this time around, the wait staff was so off compared to the those a year ago. No savoir faire, very unpolished service compared to that which Del Posto was known for. The menu was also lacking and the food was bland. Very disappointing.

Either service has gone downhill or we just didn't get the kind of attentive service we once did at this restaurant. Felt very uncomfortable with table staff, from the sommelier to the waiters. Got the impression we were peasants who didn't belong in this palace. The lettuce and herbs was overly seasoned and vinegary. The halibut was tasteless and I couldn't eat the dessert, some kind of lemon verbena. Tasted more like hand soap.
