Went on a Saturday night @ 8:00. Couldn't have been more than 20 people in the Restaurant. Food and Wine is very expensive, in fact very expensive. Crab Cake appetizer that costs $2 to make was $19. Cheapest bottle of wine was $40. Porterhouse was very fatty. Sides were $9 each and I alone could have finished the sides w/o a problem, they say they are for four people...I think not..Each desert is $9. Dinner for (4) with Tax and Tip was $480. That's absurd for a steakhouse when I didn't even feel full leaving. Their are countless other steakhouses in the city to go to where you won't spend the equivalent of $120/person

You cannot go to this resturant during resturant week. I'm suprised by the number of reviewers who attempted to do so and were suprised that $25 didn't get them a full meal. This is a classic American resturant which is always a treat to eat at. Try the bar area/bar menu if you don't want to pay full price for a meal which still has a nice atmopshere.

I went there during restaurant week and had the prix fixe dinner. The food was great! The service was excellent. The atmosphere was a bit too noisy. Everyone seemed to be speaking too loud!

I went to Delmonico's the other night during Restaurant Week with an old friend. We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu. The portions were tiny: we had the seafood and I had to fill up on the bread. The service was poor. The minute we finished a dish, the servers were over asking if they could clear the table. When told no, they returned every 20 seconds until they were able. At one point, they just grabbed the dishes, almost militarily. The point, I think, was to empty the table for another party. It didn't matter much that we weren't really finished.

I had the corporate card so I couldn't go wrong with this "establishment." Unfortunately, the appetizer & salad were sub-par, the tuna wasn't seasoned and the mashed potatos were made from a mix (there was a distinct layer of water on the top).

Restaurant Week, my wife opted for the prix fixe (she is not a big eater) and felt it was really worth it, the dessert cheesecake alone as good as any we've had in NY. I had the Delmonico Rib Eye medium rare, and was disappointed; it was good but not what one expects from a prestigious steak house. Service was personal and pleasant, with our waiter taking the time to tell us about a partial appropriation of the Delmonico legend for a new place in Las Vegas. The history of Delmonico's, the murals (some old, some new) and the "buzz" made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Good drinks, and I'll bet the bar/grill food is great. But we'll not be going back for the steak.

A friend and I made reservations for last night (Prixe Fix Week) We thought it would be a fabulous opportunity to have a good dinner at an upscale restaurant for a reasonable price. ($20.05) The first of my courses was the tomato salad.. which consisted of 3 (3) slices of tomatoes, with a small pad of blue cheese on top. For my second course I ordered the pumpkin ravioli with pesto sauce. When the waiter arrived, I looked at my friend in awe as he placed a plate of 7 (seven!) ravioli covered in green pesto. My order received several looks of sympathy from those sitting nearby. My friend's steak was miniscule (but still, a healthier portion than my seven ravioli) and sat on a bed of mashed potatoes. All in all, the meal was sub par and not worth the time or the effort it took to get downtown. I spent, between us.. $60 on a tiny hunk of meat and 7 ravioli. If you're having a regular, non prixe fix meal - I'm sure both the service and the portions may be better.
