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.

Overall 3food 3service 3ambience 4

Expense account atmosphere with an emphasis on pushing you through to clear table. Amuse bouche on table immediately after seating. Cocktails slow to arrive and we wanted to finish those before eating anything. Too many people came by too often to try to clear before we ever touched them. Cleared before we even tried them without asking. Approached several times before having our drinks to ask if we wanted to order. Service so “efficient” that almost impossible to understand the rapid fire description of dishes fairly thrown at table - equally speedily removed if you made the mistake of putting utensil down before finishing. Menu/food formulaic. Beautiful setting but pianist who has to be loud to be heard in such a large space makes conversation difficult at reasonable level. Expensive for that kind of rushed treatment.

I have been to Del Posto before and was always impressed. Unfortunately, this time (which was my birthday) I was disappointed primarily with the service. Although we had a number of knowledgeable professionals attending to us, it seemed that we were left unattended more than I would have expected. My dining colleague and I are both gluten free, and the head waiter helped us select gluten free options.
That is always appreciated. The food was good, but not up to the caliber I recall on my last visit. We did receive an extra dessert with a candle in celebration of my birthday. The birthday wish (the plate said happy birthday too) was a nice thought. My appetizer was the Himachi and it was delicious. I ordered a pasta dish as my main course. It was the first pasta dish on the menu and recommended by the waiter. It was extremely rich, but tasty. However, it was lukewarm. I decided not to send it back. My dining partner had the veal and pork pasta with red sauce pasta and it was very good. The desserts were beautifully presented and extremely enjoyable.

Service and ambiance were spectacular. The wine was wonderful. The courses came too fast - we did ask them to slow down, and they graciously accommodated. My wife’s salad was wonderful, she loved her duck sausage pasta. My octopus was OK, and I was unimpressed with my pasta dish.

This place was not really for me. Slow service and food was good but not worth the price. They sat us in a drafty corner even though I made the reservation weeks in advance. We did the captains menu, and had the sol and branzino for mains. We went on the cheaper end for wine, and it showed. Super mediocre. I couldn’t help but wonder if a person was served that meal in another restaurant with less of a reputation, they would never go back.

Absolutely impeccable service and incredible cuisine! We had the 5 course menu and each dish we selected was amazing. Decided to skip the wine pairing this time in order to focus on the food, so one bottle of wine was enough for two of us to enjoy throughout the meal. Will definitely recommend to others and plan to come back in the future!

Very much a "hit and miss" experience with the 5 course menu.

While antipasto selections were tasty, some of the pasta entrees were over-processed beyond recognition. Hard to tell whether the Girella Genovese, which came in the form of a hockey puck, was meat, or pasta. Hard cooked on the outside and drizzled with a "pork reduction", it was essentially inedible. The Branzino was processed and manipulated to the point that it was dry and tasteless. The inclusion of guanciale in the dish (sea bass and pork cheek?) was not a plus.

The Bastianich Vespa Rosso wine was a pleasant surprise.

The servers were very friendly and knowledgeable and mitigated our disappointment with the food.

Definitely a "been there, done that experience" for us.

Unlikely to go back.
