It's a lovely place and the food is good, just very big. We could've had one steak between 3 of us, no weights on the menu, just thought it was expensive!! We wasted lots of food ☹️

The Delmonico steak was too fatty, but flavorful, service was great, prices were ok, the wine (Vault) was outstanding! But I'm not sure if I'd go back? Maybe for wine and appetizers.

Went here as part of our honeymoon and it is absolutely amazing! The decor is beautiful and the staff are extremely attentive. We decided to go for the New York strip and the salmon and it was the first place I had been asked how I liked my salmon cooked !
The New York strip was to die for and the salmon was cooked exactly to what I asked .
We were not intending on eating desert but couldn’t pass up the creme brûlée and the apple crumble
Would go back here again in a shot !!!

Enjoyed this restaurant. The food was good and the service was, as well. It was a little on the pricey side, but to be expected in nyc. The strip steak was cooked perfectly and was a nice cut. Not the best I’ve ever had, but very good and nothing to complain about. The appetizers we had (calamari, bacon, and tuna tartare) were all very good. Bacon was the best. It was a little on the quiet side, but was nice ambiance. The vault room was interesting and the bar area was decorated traditionally.

Food was excellent and ambiance was perfect. Service was good until my steak came out over cooked. I mentioned to the server and he quickly came back at me and he said “it was cooked perfectly madame”. Well, no it wasn’t. I ordered medium rare and it came out medium well and for the price of the Delmonico ~ I expect perfection. The server NEVER came back to ask how everything was once our food was served, so I mentioned to the manager that my steak was over cooked. Unapologetically, he grabbed my plate and then sent another guy to deliver the new one which by the way, was not the Delmonico steak. No one ever came back to check on us or refill our water. We sat for 10 min after we were done (with dirty plates in front of us). Slava, finally returned and passed out dessert menu~ not saying a single word. At this point, we wanted to leave. I again motioned for him to come over indicating we wanted the check. He brought it. Never said thank you or even asked if we wanted dessert (I had indicated on the reservation that we were celebrating my daughter’s 15th birthday and that was NEVER even acknowledged). He again , in silence, brought the check. We paid and thought WHAT ON EARTH JUST HAPPENED. This was a let down. We are in NYC from Texas celebrating my daughter’s birthday and couldn’t wait to try this place. Oh well, we tried it and because of the service ~ we will never recommend it.

What an amazing place!!
History on display and without researching steak places, I would have had no idea about it as you can't exactly walk by it on the street.
From the moment we arrived, right up until leaving (pausing first to take photos of the vault mechanism), the service was outstanding. Wait staff were all very attentive without being overbearing.
The food was amazing with the exception of the duck potato cake, it was sooo much more than amazing - if you go, you must have it.

If they employed a chef as good as their photographer it would of been excellent.

Let down on mediocre food - short rib was full of fat and cold.

Service was not up to par for a restaurant this pricey. We had a reservation for 8pm and showed on time. We sat for more than 15 minutes before anyone even spoke to us. More than 25 minutes before we even had a menu in our hands. Even after finally getting some drinks and food service remained very slow. I observed that there appeared to be a single waiter and two bus boys working the entire dining room which had nine occupied tables. The food, was well-prepared and tasty and we really appreciated the brusel sprouts with bacon. The mozzarella salad was generally good but was a bit smokier than I prefer but not overly so. The porterhouse steak we ordered was tasty and cooked perfectly to order.
