A better NYC restaurant
By chipmonks on 3/6/2010
This is the only place in New York where it is not crowded and I dont have to squeeze myself through tables and tables of people, and where waiters bump each other going around tables. The tables were not squeezed together like guests were cockroaches and it actually seemed like there more waiters than guests! The food is superb. I ate the Ribeye steak for 2 and it was perfectly cooked, tender and extremely tasty. I also ate the pasta with the dungeness crab with it and it was very aromatic and had very strong flavor with it. The piece of crab in the pasta was fairly good sized and was very soft. This restaurant is definitely worth every penny and going back to.

we've been to most of the Batali/Bastianich locations. The food is always terrific. THIS was a birthday and THE EXPERIENCE really felt special. i have not ONE complaint... i grew up in manhattan with family in the restaurant operations business. i know how difficult it is to maintain reliability. del posto is now firing on all cylinders. I can't think of a more pleasant evening.
Go, just go! You owe it to yourself and your s/o.

Del Posto is not just a 5 star culinary experience, but also an entertainment, cultural one. We had the 5 course Prix Fixe with wine pairing. It worth every penny! The food was exquisite, including the presentation. I especially recommend theTruffled BEEF Carne and the Cruda Spiced DUCK . The Dolci-MELANZANE e Cioccolato alla Napoletana & theChocolate Ricotta TORTINO where absolute divine. If the palate was not "entertained" enough, we had the best experience of a well trained staff, from the hostess, to our Captain/waitress and the multi knowledgeable sommeliers (2 of them). It was all together one of the most enriching experiences we had, from a culinary and entertaining perspective. All in all, I recommend Del Posto wholeheartedly, especially if you want to impress your special someone. Go, just go! You owe it to yourself and your s/o.
Delicious but uptight

Why can't top restaurants in NYC relax a little and stop the 'bowing' and gestures of hierarchy. I love great food and the culinary art but i found the environment so stuffy. I don't know if its possible to have both great food (this was) and a more relaxed environment - (i.e.- who needs a napkin to cover the tablecloth if there is one drop of broth that feel from the bowl?)- not our style.. Decor was also dark and overbearing. But despite all of my negativity, the food really was fabulous and i will probably return (until i find a better option)
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
