My wife and I werein Utica for the last week to visit. On our last day there, we visited Del Monicos Steak House. The food was fine, and so was the service for the most part. We did enjoy our steaks. However, the place is infested with bugs. We were seated in a booth surrounded by hanging plants and they are infested with little white bugs. They kept dropping to the table and into our food. We were thoroughly disgusted and left before finishing our meal. It was a disgusting experience. We did enjoy several restaurants in the New Hartford area, and besides the city of Utica itself, we did enjoy our time there.

They are tiny bugs. They almost look like small white dust if you don't look closely. My wife knew the name, I'm sorry I forgot it. The plants are infested with them. If you take them and put them on your arm and watch you can see them crawl. They are all over the plants and woodwork.

Spider mites (or aphids). Common for indoor plants.

I wouldn't eat there because of the food, but I wonder what the health department would say about bugs falling onto diners tables.

Yeah, I'm not buying it, either. I don't see any mention of talking to the manager about it, THEN leaving. The bugs were dropping INTO the food? You were directly UNDER plants? Right. Next time I'm in pigging out on that huge slab of steak, I'm going to take a look. Something sounds fish (or buggy) here.

Sorry, the seasoned steak was terrible, and the sauce was out of a jar or can. The lasagna had a lot of meat and cheese, but who can make it and layer it in a pan, it's the sauce that makes the dish. I actually don't think any place from here to Syracuse has good sauce. My opinion.

I always thought of DelWopico's like a Chuck E. Cheese for oootica adult children living the wopslop dream in ootica. As silly and cheesy as that place is is, and even though I could believe some bitty bugs like little aphid things or whatever being on the plants something about this post is lacking that smack of "authentic" but I can't put my finger on it.

SOMEbody done somebody wrong somewhere I guess. This thread has to boil and simmer more to well up into enough to decide either way LOL!
