What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.1

Del Posto is one of the best special occasion restaurants in New York City. Think of it like a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

My family and I have dined at Del Posto on several occasions dating back to when it was brand new. We hadn't been there in at least three or four years and sadly, it just wasn't the same. The food was quite good...but not worth the $200 per person prix fixe. The city now has way better options for that kind of money. And the restaurant itself felt dated and a little thread-worn. I hate to say it but our last visit will likely be our last visit.

From beginning to end this is what first class service and dining is. From the time we walked in to the time we exited, the service from the staff was excellent.
The menu exquisitely prepared and explained.

I will start this review by saying, love del posto. I’ve been here maybe 10 times. Perhaps the better chefs and servers are on vacation because it is the summer? I was surprised as to how poor the food quality and service was this time. The first pasta course was served room temperature which is not appealing for agnolotti with rabbit. When they brought it back it was so over cooked we could not chew the rabbit, it was inedible. The cold veal antipasti was extremely bland, as well as the yellowfin tuna secondi. I wanted to ask for hot sauce. (I did not- that would have been insulting) The wine pairing which is always spectacular was a rather peculiar situation, because the person serving the wine appeared to be reading the label. We asked a few questions and did not get answers. He seemed flustered and confused. Very different than the typical sommelier experience you would have at Del Posto. Another strange thing, the courses are usually about 10 minutes in between and well timed out. Our first course took 5 minutes second course 10 minutes then 45 minutes until the 3rd. Perhaps due to the pasta blunder? I will go back in the fall and I expect this strangely terrible dinning experience will be a one time occurrence. Id suggest skipping Del Posto until late September.

Awful service, particularly for the exorbitant prices. For our special occasion (anniversary), they seated us at a table that was broken, causing a glass of wine to pour all over my suit. The maitre d’ was argumentative, as opposed to apologetic. I was unbelievably shocked at how poor the service was for a $500 meal. I would not recommend.

A business dinner for five of us. We opted for their five course choose-your-own dishes-except-for-the-pasta-course, which is kind of an odd setup, but which worked out well for us. We opted for wine service and were helped by an excellent sommelier who chose four interesting bottles for us as the courses progressed, all (in the context of Del Posto) reasonably priced at around $100 per. The food was exceptionally well executed, managing rich, fresh, and authentic in every dish. Great care is clearly being taken. The room itself is elegant (we dined on the balcony) and tasteful but also dark and gloomy. Sounds odd but when you enter you'll see. The service is competent and precise; not overbearing or severe. The tiny baguettes deserve a special mention: beautiful crust, tangy interior, fantastic. I will definitely be back, and probably at lunch, when most of the dinner menu can be had for about 1/3 of the price. It's a really solid restaurant that feels like it could become something spectacular.

Con un menú de degustación de ocho tiempos tuvimos una muy buena experiencia culinaria. El servicio fue excelente con más de seis meseros atendiendonos. Con un ambiente elegante y música de piano, es uno de los más caros restaurantes que he visitado en la ciudad.

Fine dining at its finest! Every time at Del Posto is an new experience. This time we were with a friend with a gluten allergy. Not only were they exceptionally accommodating to her needs, but went above and beyond in some cases creating a custom dish for her. Their attentiveness is world class. I can't say more about the staff, the chefs, and food. IF you have never visited, make sure you do at least once in life.

I always love Del Posto but this time, it was truly exceptional. I had a special request since I was hosting a table and this was a first trip to New York for one of the guests.
The service was impeccable. We sat at table 8 an the elegant, older gentleman with silver hair and glasses (I do not believe he was introduced to us) delighted in explaining the dishes down to the last detail. He was attentive with my niece and out of town guest making them feel so special and he and the team—Manager, Sommelier, bus staff etc. did not miss a detail.
I love the warmth of the room, the piano playing, the space in between tables and most importantly, the quiet! We could actually enjoy an elegant five course tasting meal without raising our voices.
I highly recommend the tasting menu and of course, Del Posto. Can’t wait to go back!!!
Thank you for an incredible evening and great memories for my guests!

Del Posto is a beautiful restaurant with excellent service and well-prepared food. All the staff address customers' needs; none are intrusive and look to make customers as comfortable as possible.

This is a great restaurant for an occasion or for people who like a very full 5-course meal.

ハレの日にふさわしいお店だと思います。塩味の強い料理が好みの方には物足りないかもしれません。
お魚の火の通りかた、アレンジなどは素晴らしいです。最後に数種類のお菓子が出てきますが、そちらも楽しくいただけます。
いくつかの高級イタリアンを食べてきましたが、トップレベルであり、皆さんにおススメしたいお店です。

Eaten many times in last 3 years - yet ruined our 25th Annivesary celebration today

There are three aspects of “fine” dining. Food, which Del Posto does amazing. Atmosphere, also, amazing. Personnel/service - pray nothing goes wrong!

I reached out to Del Posto prior to arriving to let them know it was my our 25th Annivesary for a surprise lunch. Guess what, we got the surprise. We almost left in the middle of the meal. I did what you are supposed to do when things go wrong. Speak to a manager. But what happens when that goes wrong? Both of us ended up speaking to managers about service/personnel issues (never a good thing when the first diner comes back from speaking to a manager - me- and says to the other on our 25th Annivesary surprise lunch - time to leave.

Honestly, we only stayed because it was 2:45 (1:45 lunch reservation) and if we left, we have had nothing on our Anniversary.
