i finally got to del posto, what an experience, from the bar to dessert it was totaly awesome, service impeccable, the wait staff could not do enough for you and of course the best part of the night was that Lidia came to our table to see if everythign was okay, just meeting lidia was a thrill. Do not miss out on this extravanza of culinary magic. and a breathtakingly beautiful restaurant.

Went recently for restaurant week lunch. Food was good (that's it) but the portions were pretty small- the dessert was the best part which was genuinely great. Service was spotty- our waitress sat us and never came back. We had to finally stop another waiter and ask him to take our order and ask for water refills. There seemed to be a lot of people working and it wasn't that crowded so I don't know what the problem was. The restaurant is huge and has a very nice atmosphere. I'm glad I went during restaurant week b/c I wouldn't have felt that it was worth it if I went on a normal night.

We went to Del Posto with both anticipation and trepidation. We had been warned that while the food is very good the staff was somewhat impressed with themselves. We were politely greeted and immediately shown to a very nice table overlooking the main floor from the balcony. When I asked for assistance with my wine choice the steward was very helpful and not at all condescending. Our food was delicious, and our waiter was very attentive without being oppressive. When my wife expressed how much she enjoyed the little hazelnut cookies they offered with dessert, the waiter arranged for a takeout container with about a dozen of them for her to take home. Even though it was an enjoyable experience, if the tab had been under $300 I would have felt a bit better about it.

OK - special evening 4 person table, the restaurant not packed but not empty. The menu difficult, the food not memorable, the service spotty, the prices high. Honestly, for the money spent I should have gone to a truly memorable venue. They are trying to have the status of Chanterelle or Le Bernadin - sadly they are not nearly on thesame level. Would not even go back for free.

the food is good, but the portions are sooo small, you need $200 a person to even get half full. beautiful and romantic place, but when the best food value is the free donuts from the dessert cart at the end, you know something is wrong

enjoyed everything we ordered. Our waitress was excellent and very pleasing. Appetizers were excellent as was our main courses. We didn't order dessert, but we ordered coffee and were given complimentary biscottis. Which were the perfect ending to our meal. As a note another waitress was preparing a dessert for which was only available through the tasting menu and when I asked my waitress she gave us a sample. That was very nice of her we thought. Service was impeccable. Loved it would recommend it.

I am surprised to be reading the so-so/average reviews – I LOVED Del Posto! It was one of the BEST meals in my life!!! I went last week with my father and we sat on the more casual, lighter, less expensive side of the restaurant. We both sampled the 5 course $45 fixed menu. We ordered different items so we really had tastes of 10 different outstanding plates. The food was AMAZING . . . we eat out all the time. We had a great time and meal in the beautiful restaurant! Everything from the music to the wait staff was perfect! In fact, my father is taking my mother back to Del Posto for their 30th anniversary – he just made the reservation. I recommend this GREAT restaurant. I will be back!! Yes, $45 may sound steep at first, but the FOOD is worth it!
