    FACT: Delmonico's was the first American eatery to be called by the French name "restaurant." CHECK OUT: The two columns flanking the doorway were reportedly salvaged from the ruins of Pompeii.

    Great traditional meal. For sure we will come back. We decided to try the Barolo, and it was a great decision. We will be back to try the eggs Benedict, as if they created, they must be excellent.

    Oldest fine dining restaurant in the country. The filet mignon, naked raviolis & the lobster iceberg were delicious. The ambiance & service truly transport you to a different century. Worth the money.

    Fancy place and behind it there is a great story about its history and how the owner took the Delmonico’s name. I highly recommend the Delmonico’s steak and baked Alaska for dessert.

    Their fillet mignon is GREAT try it! It has a sauce that makes it quite particular. The chocolate mousse comes with a blackberry sauce and is just fantastic! Service is fantastic too!

    This is the first steakhouse/restaurant in the US and is a historic restaurant. Ambiance is very formal and classic. Try one of their classics lobster dishes.

    Solid classic steakhouse fare. Historic institution. Can't go wrong with lobster bisque, filet mignon or baked alaska for dessert. Service is great too!

    Should get much more credit than it does when discussing the City's best steakhouses; this one is the OG. Do yourself a favor and try the hand rolled mozzarella sticks.

    Opened in 1837, Delmonico’s is be touted as birthplace of steakhouses. Devour Lobster Newburg, Baked Alaska, and huge cuts of meat at the place where J.P. Morgan once dined.

    Pretty much every classic American dish ever created was invented here. If you don’t want steak at NYC’s oldest steak house, then get fancy with an order of Lobster Newburg. Read more

    Mad Men Dining Week, got a 2-course lunch special. The steak was massive and delicious. Dessert: ice cream plus a chocolate mousse cake or Baked Alaska (walnut cake + marshmallow fluff). Yum~

    While I would be reluctant to call a $45 meal a value I do think the pick 3 lunch is, if you can a afford it, very reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber in this city. I left very satisfied.

    Opened in 1827, arguably the first true American restaurant and first with à la carte ordering. Claims to have invented Eggs Benedict, Baked Alaska, and Lobster Newburg. Fancy and expensive.

    The steak is pretty good quality and served in the old fashioned style, very similar to Peter Lugers. Don’t order sauce, maybe a butter if you want. The baked Alaska is not that good, don’t get it

    This old-school steakhouse still serves up some excellent dishes; you'll find a stellar filet mignon as well as the Baked Alaska, which was invented at Delmonico's.

    The tasty lobster newburg in cream sauce was originally introduced to Charles Delmonico in the 1870s by a wealthy sea captain. Sir, we’re forever in your debt. Read more

    Delmonico Steak is the best steak in NYC hands down, and the whipped potatoes are the best mashed potatoes I have ever had. This place is a must.

    Start your meal at this legendary steakhouse with the tuna tartare and foie gras. Next, dive into the 5lb. lobster special and Delmonicos steak. The baked Alaska completes a perfectly memorable meal!

    Opened in 1827, first American restaurant to feature ordering à la carte, as opposed to table d’hôte, and to employ a separate wine list. Reopened several times since family ownership ended in 1923.

    Coming to this restaurant I expected to have fantastic steak! So I ordered one 20oz for 51 usd. Unfortunately I wasn't able to eat too much because it consisted of pure salt! Everything else was good!

    Service sucks. Practically have to wave the server over. Porterhouse was good but not as good as lugars. King crab Mac n cheese, garlic spinach & brussels sprouts were good sides.

    I was a bit underwhelmed after hearing such great reviews about this place. My medium rare order came to me 'well-done' the first time and medium the second. The scallops were great however.
