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.

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.

This was our second visit in two years; the first time was for lunch, which we liked better. It starts with an extensive but over-priced wine menu that lacked any prosecco (hard to believe in an Italian high-end restaurant, I know). The cocktails that we ordered were ok but nothing to write home about (definitely not for that price).
The salads were quite nice, the second set of primeri were not: these were supposed to be creative pasta dishes but the dough was too thick and tasted slightly raw, the flavors underwhelming. We both returned our pasta dishes only half-eaten (not that anybody cared to ask why). The secondi (mushrooms for me, eggplant for my spouse) were flavorful but uni-dimensional and got boring fast.
The deserts were fine albeit a little too small.
With tip, we spent exactly $500 for two, which included just one cocktail each. For that price I want to be swooning - which neither one of us did. We will therefore scratch Del Posto from our list of places to go to in NYC.

For the lunch menu. Extremely high end feel, for a (relatively) reasonable price. Three course tasting plus two pasta tastings ended up being about 8 courses and two hours long. Incredible service, almost to the level of the absurd.

My wife and I took another couple who came in from out of town to Del Posto to celebrate one of their birthdays and we had a great time and a fantastic meal. Del Posto is an perfectly decorated restaurant, it is both elegant, classy and comfortable. The service at the restaurant is outstanding, the staff is very professional but also friendly. The food is to die for....their pasta’s are outstanding and each of their entrees are delicious ! They also have a fantastic wine selection. If you are looking for a classy place to have a fantastic meal, Del Posto is the place to go !

We are regulars at Del Postos sister venue, Babbo. We love both - this is more of a splurge though. The bread and homemade butter is almost worth the trip alone; but after that the food is very similar to Babbos only double the price. You're really paying for the service (which is incredible - the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly) as well as the ambiance (I feel like Im being taken back to some 1940s glamorous restaurant). Ill keep Babbo as our regular stop and Del Posto for when we want to go BIG.

The epitome of elegance, Del Posto nails its pastas while simultaneously offering tasty entrees that are plenty flavourful and not too heavy. The service can be overly attentive at times, but the servers are plenty responsive to diner requests so more privacy can certainly be had should it be desired.

Very average experience that failed to meet expectations. We did 8 course and some courses timed perfectly some course spread 30 minutes. Very poor table location, and we felt ignored most of the evening. For the price the are better options although many of the courses were outstanding. Pasta dishes were remarkable. I wish the service equaled.

Del Posto is a world class Italian restaurant worthy of special occasions. All of the dishes are creative and delicious. The service is excellent and competes with that of haute French restaurants. The room is beautiful and upstairs where I sat was quiet and romantic. I would recommend it to anyone if they have the budget.

Food and service was outstanding. The wine was just ok. We ordered a fairly expensive Barolo and a Barbaresco. They tasted slightly off, as if corked, but they weren't I don't think. The nose was lousy but it worked out fine with the food.

All in all a very nice experience.

This was my second visit at Del Posto, the evening is much different than the night experience. I feel as though my first experience was much much better than my first, all be it my second experience was still 5 star. I believe the main difference was the presentation of the waiter/waitress. My first experience was much more enthusiastic, while second was much more relaxed and laid back. Amazing food overall; If that is what you are going for, you made a 6 star choice.

As I earlier wrote, all-in-all one of the very best lunch spots in Gotham. The new menu is not quite as compelling as the last(no dover sole) and annoying supplements have crept in on a $59 prix fixe lunch. This hardly puts a dent in the sublime experience that awaits a diner. All members of our party were thrilled with everything; not the least being the abundance of amuses at the sart, during and after the meal. Can't wait to return.

Our table of four was overall disappointed. The two pasta dishes were amazingly delicious and the burrata was heavenly. The service was not seamless or impressive, the main course were ok- the tiny pork chop was fatty, the fish stew broth was not consistent and the fish dish was ok. They did not have Pinot Grigio or named vodkas such as kettle one or grey goose but rather something called hangar one which was barely ok. I guess for $400 a person I was expecting too much! L
