I recently dined there and it was a horrible experience, the food was greasy and oily, this kind of food could only plug up your arteries and give you a heart attack! So if you order the Cardiac special think twice before Dining there. I am very disappointed and will not go back?

My fiance and I had a bad meal there once.
We complained via their website and management sent us a 50.00 gift card.
We gave it to a friend.

They must do something right, there was a 50 to 60 minute wait for a table at 6 P.M. The place was packed and people were backed up out the door. I dined at a table for 12 and most everybody at the table had food to take home. If it wasn't good food, the people I sat with wouldn't have eaten it; nor taken any home. We had two wait staff, Josh and Steve, whose service was out of this world. Polite, friendly, clean looking and fast. Just enough intervention, without being obnoxious. I recommend the place to anyone, just get there early (4:30 - 5:00 pm)

I agree 100%

My son surprised me on Mother's Day and took me out for dinner at Delmonico's and told me to order whatever I wanted. I choose the lazagna (sp?)and it was the best I've ever eaten including my own. In fact, I couldn't even finish eating all of it and brought the rest home in a doggie bag.

IMO this is an excellent restaurant and the prices are reasonable for the top of the line food and service you will receive there.

It was one of the best Mother's Day present I've had in a long time and can't wait to see what my son will do for me this year!

That's the way it is. If you don't like it go somewhere else, no brainer.

not only are they awful but when you go there you have to put up with skanky utica snooki waitresses that dont have a clue what they are doing, and a ton of wanna be wonderbread italians that think they are all in the mob because frank sinatras music is playing and they sold $200 worth of cocaine in their lifetime, if you want a REAL steak then you need to take a short drive to the buffalo head in forestport me and my wife started going there about 5 years ago and that place is great and the italian food is also great, if you want grea titalian food there is also bella cucinas in NH that place blows delmonicos out of the water!!!

then go somewhere else. They do plenty of business without you, and they've been in operation for years, here and in Syracuse. Must be doing something right to be so busy for so long. Why did they fire you, btw?

Anyone who eats anything but steak at that place is white trash and a low life. It's like the mcdonalds on Mohawk st of Italian food.

It is so obvious you have a personal vendetta and this is not about food or service. Enough people have eaten at DelMonico's so their good rep is entrenched. You'll need to employ a different tactic. Sorry

'snooki waitresses'...AWESOME!!! Seriously, do the management and the waitresses actually think they look classy? I don't go to dinner at an expensive, overrated, novelty restaurant to be distracted by waitresses in too-short, too-tight skirts. How about upping the class factor as well as the food quality in order to earn the too-high prices? Haven't been there in a long, long time now. Ponderosa's food is about the same quality and a much better bargain, but I won't eat there either .

James Beard would NEVER suggest that people eat at this place. Let me paraphrase your statement from above and then please explain the difference.

If the food is so bad and they charge extra for a salad then why is it so packed most night's? Must be doing something right!
Yep

Good food, large portions, and always busy. Never had an issue and will continue to eat there. Usually only eat half of my dinner and take the rest of it for lunch later in the week...

Because most people don't know good food, they think because they're spending more (a la carte) then it must be good. Or they want to look at Snooki waitresses.....

If you don't know the difference, my explanation certainly won't be of any assisstance. Slam Dunk
