    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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~

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Lobster Newberg, a luscious concoction featuring multiple crustaceans swimming in cream, cognac, sherry, and cayenne pepper, has been an iconic NYC dish since 1876.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    The Hamburg steak (served on a plate, not a bun) made its way to the New world and was considered comfort food for recent arrivals from Europe.

    Great variety in the Restaurant Week Menu. The fillet mignon was a little overcooked to be medium-rare but still quite good.

    The menus are not only a record of favored flavors—like the moon–size local bluepoint oysters served at Delmonico’s in 1882.

    The oldest restaurant in New York and one of the best steakhouses. if you like rare steak, try it "black and blue" - charred on the outside and rare inside.
