To have the ultimate fine dining experience at an NYC steak house one must dine here. The ambience takes you back in time. The walls are painted with gentry smoking and eating in period dressing hats et' al. The reception and service is perfect. The menu is simple yet inviting. The bar is well stocked. I had the Delmonico's signature... More

We'd been looking forward to our lunch at Delmonico's on our visit to NY, and were not disappointed. I ordered the Delmonico steak and my husband had the filet. Both were seasoned & cooked to perfection. The Delmonico potatoes & Brussels sprouts were also delicious. Service was great with no hovering. We declined dessert, but I did order a cappuccino,...

My daughter and I went here one late afternoon. We did make reservations but came in 45 minutes early and they sat us early. Great food, very old style, elegant. No dress code, we were in jean and tennis shoes. Pricey but worth the trip.

There are few places that can match the charm of Delmonico's and no place can match it's history. However, when dinner for three costs a plane ticket to Cali you are entitled to expect top of the line fare. Can't say we got it. a crab meat cocktail was decidedly tiny and entirely average. The Delmonico steak ($61) was good,... More

Took clients to dinner there last night, a party of five (5) in total. The atmosphere is incredible and the service was great. However, the steak wasn't. Two of the five (5) of us ordered their "signature steak" - the Delmonico. I have ordered many ribeyes in many restaurants, both with and without the bone. I have also prepared them... More

My wife and I had lunch there. It appeared to be nearly all "Wall Street Types," with us the only tourists. It has a good "beef house" menu, and the wine and service were up to snuff. I strongly recommend the bacon and octopus (yes) appetizer. My wife had a "small" (10 oz) steak and I had the pork chop... More

Old school cool and the best bang for the buck on Restaurant Week. 8oz. fillet, crab cakes and NYC cheesecake all done to perfection and served by pros. Quick without feeling rushed, attentive without being annoying. Can't say enough great things.

Glad we had a reservation. My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and were seated in a nice cozy nook. the atmosphere takes you back to the 1840's when the restaurant first opened. Wooden trim, painting of people of yore, and an amazing amount of staff to wait on your every need. To start, my husband ordered the lobster... More

Highly praised steakhouse. Serving good steaks - but there is no more magic around it. You can find similar places many times in New York.

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.
