On a Friday evening, back when I lived in the area, it use to be unheard of to go downtown NYC. All the way downtown anyway. It turned into a ghost town after 6PM. That is not the case anymore. And one of the gems downtown is Delmonico's, the classic steak house of NYC.... and America. The history is quite... More

Superb food, excellent atmosphere, wonderful service. Perfect for business dinner after a day on Wall Street ... and for special family celebrations. Try the Delmonico steak (of course), the lobster Newberg (first served here) or the Dover sole (fantastic). And be sure to save room for the flaming baked Alaska (spectacular). This place has a storied history and has been... More

Eating at Delmonicos is an experience. It's a historic place and the originator of the a la carte menu. I had the filet and it was smooth and buttery and full of goodness. My companion had the NY strip and it was also cooked to perfection. Did not try the desserts on this occasion. We informed our waiter that we... More

Went to NYC for the first time and wanted to indulge in a classic well-known steakhouse for a great meal. We decided on Delmonico's based on the history and TripAdvisor reviews.

Enjoyed a night out with my family while visiting NYC. Great place to enjoy family, friends or business dinner with the charm of old New York! It is a restaurant located in the financial sector close to Wall Street full of charm, elegance, historical significance, great food and first class service. A must for elegant dining!

I used to live down the street from DelMonicos so I have had their steak a number of times. As with most good NYC steak houses, it is rather on the pricier side. But again, you get what you pay for. This was the first restaurant in NYC to sell alcohol. I do love the steak here, but it is... More

Beautiful building housing the historic Delmonico’s Steakhouse. We chose this restaurant due to the close proximity to our hotel and the rich history. We had immediate seating with our reservation. Beautiful dining room but a little dimly lit. While this adds to the ambiance, it makes it difficult for some with reading the menu. Two in our group used a... More

Enjoyed the food here. I'm not a steak eater,but I had the original signature Delmonico Steak done well and it is great. Served with whipped potatoes, beet salad and carrots. Classy atmosphere, great service. A must for those meat eaters among us.

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.
