i went to del posto with three others. one was a vegetarian who does not eat fish. we wanted to get the five-course dinner but could not because there was not a vegetarian entree. the waiter (the wait staff is excellent) said he would ask the chef if he would make the mushroom risotto as an entre (we were willing to pay extra). the best the chef said he could do was to make eggplant parmigiana (a dish made in every greek diner in new york). very disappoingting. the food was good and restaurant is beautiful. too bad it's not for everyone.

I enjoyed it. I never should have gone expecting more than good. What a nerve charging prices like that. The pastas are excellent. The chicken was less than stellar. I'll stick with places that I know, and who know me, where I get food just as good and have more fun.

Several of my co-workers and I had lunch here during restaurant week. The space is gorgeous, high ceilings and lots of flower arrangements. Shortly after we were seated we received a complimentary bellini , which was delicious. I then feasted on the fresh herbed bread and chose to spread a litlle of the lardo with rosemary on top. You must try it. For my first course I chose thespeck with a baby argula salad. Next, I feasted on the slow roasted salmon with wax beans and a citrus dressing. For dessert I had a choclate praline bar with a praline gelato. Each course was magnificent. I was very impressed with the service and knowledge of the staff. As we were leaving the restaurant they presented each diner with a free box of chocolate truffles. They won me over, I can't wait to go back!

pasta was great...grilled lamb unbelievable. The risotto was ok, very disappointed. The service was very good.

Our dining experience here was disappointing, to say the least. The food is really nothing fabulous, and the hosts are horrendous. The appetizers are uninspiring, along with the entrees. The saving grace were the pastas, which, again, were good but unremarkable. The desserts are sub-par. You could get something equivelent at the Olive Garden (I would imagine)! Why would you go here where there are so many restaurants with better food, better service, better ambience, and lower prices right around the corner?

After reading many posts, talking to co-workers and my parents, expectations were low. Called in the morning for the enoteca reservation. Overall we were very pleased. As stated, the service was superb, the setting luxurious although the enoteca area seating was very close to other diners. The food: started with an endive salad which was a little salty but very tasty. The calamari was also great. Got the tasting menu and was also pleased. The sweat pea nuti was tasty although we only got three each. The lamb sausage pasta was also tasty and more of a portion. For dinner, we both got a fish- skate and halibut. I didnt try the skate but the halibut was a nicely seasoned chunk of fish. There was no wine pairing but the sommelier was more than helpful in choosing proper half glasses of wine to accompany dinner. Dessert was not to spectacular, the almond chocolate cake was dry. Our bill was around $150. Definately worth it, had a very nice time and ate well. I would go there again.

I have dined here a few times and Del Posto is consistently excellent. Yes it's expensive, but a great place to celebrate an event or to take a client- You do have to make reservations about a month in advance, but it's worth the planning. The atmosphere is relaxed, the crowd somewhat elegant and the food is truly memorable. There are also wines on the extensive wine list, under $100 that are magnificent. Treat yourself.
