About
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

This is the renovated Delmonico's that has been around to a century and a half. It's in the building that everyone has seen pictures off. The building itself comes to a point on Beaver St and the restaurant has a front and a side entrance....The minute you walk in you'll notice the service is topnotch. Every staff member greets you warmly and gets out of your way as you navigate the crowded dining room floors. Exceptional courtesy! The three of us were there to celebrate our son’s 40th and were fortunate to be put in a room of just 4 other tables and a secret passageway behind our table. Just press on the wall and it opens up to a secret hallway. We're not allowed to say what it is for. Our server was "Paul" and he was classy, knowledgeable, and had a dry wit. It was a pleasure to have him take care of us. He was always aware of our needs even as he went back and forth from our room to the main dining area. WE had our wine (avg $20.00/glass) a wedge salad w crisp prosciutto chips, and Octopus with delicious bread. For entrees we had (2) Eye of Delmonico's Steaks and (1) Delmonico Steak ($68.00 and $79.00 respectively). Fantastic meat. Everything is ala carte so we ordered Sauteed mushrooms (off the wall good), Asparagus (excellent), and a Spaetzle dish (ughhh - not very good at all). WE also ordered Kosho Butter and Shallot Beef Jus. Deserts were extremely tasty and delicately made - Mango Sorbet, Chocolate Ice Cream, and Cappuccinos. Be prepared that this is a first-class restaurant, historic, and in the Finance district of NYC. Be prepared for approx. $200.00pp for a complete dinner. But its Delmonico's! The experience was one we (and our son) will remember for a lifetime. Hint: Look for parking at the lot called Icon Parking, 15 William St. It’s just a few steps across from the side entrance of Delmonico’s. Some online maps do not show it, but it’s very convenientMore

Wow, wow and wow. From start to finish, the customer service is exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Every course was a delight. The ambience is just right. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody. The portions are gigantic (which was a shock) so bring...your appetite. They have a large and varied wine list with ample wines available by the glass so after 2 cosmopolitans and 2 glasses of champagne we only had room for a bottle of Sancerre. The champagne was delicious and one I had not heard of before so I wish I could remember the name. Bottom line, it’s my new must go to restaurant in New York.More

Having worked and lived in the downtown NYC area many years I must have walked by Delmonico’s dozens of times and knew about its history. Reading the many PR articles about its reopening, my wife and I decided to give it a try to celebrate...her birthday. To be honest we were a bit underwhelmed. Yes, the room was nicely decorated and the service and food were both good, but all in all it is just a NYC steakhouse that leverages its history - and you are paying for its history and the associated hype. I was thinking everyone would be nicely dressed, but there were guys wearing baseball caps, jeans and sneakers. I guess times have changed. What put me off was the excessive prices and the hidden charges that they stuck on the final bill. Paying $79 for their signature Delmonico steak and $75 for their Dover Sole was expected and wasn’t a surprise. Bottom line – If you are expecting to pay premium prices, expect to pay even more than your expectation (Baked Alaska - $24, side of asparagus - $17, wedge salad - $26). Here’s what I found annoying. I ordered two glasses of champagne without looking at the wine list and figured the charge would be maybe $20 a glass. How about $44 a glass. I was quite unpleasantly surprised (especially when a whole bottle is about $50). I also found it annoying that I was sneakily charged an extra $15 because I used my credit card to settle the bill. That’s right, the prices on the menu are if you pay cash and if you pay with a credit card, they tack on an extra percentage. Come on. It reminded me of a gas station that teases you with a price per gallon for cash and you end up paying more to use your card. Talk about being nickeled and dimed. Fortunately there was no charge to use the men’s room. Living and working in NYC we have our choice of Michelin starred restaurants (if you are lucky enough to score a reservation) and have eaten in many. When I compare the Delmonico’s experience to the likes of Le Bernardin or Daniel, Delmonico’s doesn’t come close.More

Was excited to go and celebrate both my anniversary and my son's birthday at the recently reopened and legendary Delmonico's. It not only did not disappoint but exceeded my expectations and is beyond the best of the best Steakhouse of NYC. Everything we ordered was...sensational but i have never had bacon like they have prepared it. It was like butter! Don't forget to order desert as they are equally delicious.More

We were super excited to try them since they reopened…however it was a BIG disappointment. We went for lunch on a Friday and it was some what quiet. The service was just ok. The highlight was the wine suggestion, she did a great job. The...salad was decent and had nice flavor. My filet was so undercooked that it had to be sent back, I ordered Medium and it was almost Rare. My husband’s prime rib dip sandwich was very fatty and lacked flavor. The French fries were also super hard, starchy, and not hot. We will not be coming back, for the price point and being a NYC steakhouse, this was a huge disappointment. We live in NYC and visit steakhouses regularlyMore

Delmonico's has been on my bucket list for years, so once they opened back up, I made reservations right away. I wasn't going to miss out. With all the history, elegance, and hype about Demonico's, I was hoping that it lived up to expectations. Well,...I took my two sons there last night, and they far exceeded our expectations. Between the three of us, we ordered the Signature Delmonico (Rib Eye), the bone-in New York Strip steak, and the filet mignon. They were absolutely amazing. Cooked to perfection! We knew that the steaks were going to be good, but we were really surprised with how great everything else was. For appetizers, we had the Ceasar salad, braised octopus, and crab cakes. First of all, the Ceasar salad is nothing like a normal Ceasar salad. It's like a Ceasar salad on steroids. A flavor explosion, and yes, I'm talking about a salad. I love octopus, and the braised octopus was fantastic. As far as the crab cakes, I didn't even know that crab cakes could taste that good. The three of us couldn't stop talking about how good everything was. For sides, we ordered the creamed spinach, pommes puree, and the grilled asparagus, which were good. Then came dessert. We had to try the baked Alaska, which I never had before and was really good. We also had the cheesecake, which my sons liked, but I'm not a big fan of cheesecake. What really did me in was the Three Chocolate Mousse. I'm a big chocolate cake guy, and I am usually disappointed. This dessert was so amazing that I almost ordered a second one. It was really light and flavorful, with a nice crisp to it. All of that with a nice glass of Cabernet, and it was a perfect dinner. Now for a place like Delmonico's, you are also going her for the experience. The icing on the cake was our waiter, Albert. Albert was awesome, and really made our stay enjoyable. He treated us like old friends. He has been there for a while and is very knowledgeable. He made suggestions and made sure our first visit to Delmonico's is something that we will remember for a long time. The general manager also came over to our table to make sure our dinner was great. It was everything that we hoped it would be!More

Had wanted to visit Delmonicos just as the pandemic hit in March 2020. Nice that they finally have reopened this week after lots of legal wrangling with their partners and landlord. Fabulous meal ! Dennis knows how to run a restaurant ! Lovely experience.
