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.

Being that I have had good experiences at Babbo, I was very excited to give Del Posto a try. While I expected a hefty bill, I also thought the food would be worthy of the price, which was far from what happened. My fiancé and I ordered the 5 course tasting meal with the wine accompaniment. In all, we had 8 different dishes from the menu (veal chop, artichokes due, orecchiette with lamb to name a few) and while none was bad, everything was on par with what you would get from virtually every other decent new york restaurant. However, despite the $100-$150 dollar tab that you would get at a place like The Little Owl or Dos Caminos or Sushi Samba, etc. etc. etc., I got hit with a $450 tab at Del Posto. I am not one to complain about spending a lot on dinner; however, this was a huge disappointment because the food just didn’t live up to the price, great space and above-average service that Del Posto has. Until they get a better chef or lower their prices to the point at which they are on par with their current chef, I would stay far away.

Had dinner last month with three other people. Since we're all watching our carbs we ordered only one order to taste of the pasta with crab. They split it four ways. Had almost no crab and tasted like anchovies. When we received the bill they had charged us for two orders without telling us in advance. We did say something and they took it off the bill. We also had the whole turbot for two. It was a huge and enough for four but unfortunately it was overcooked and swimming in oil. No good! The service was slow and indifferent. I see many people like this place. I don't get it.
