Not what it used to be..
There is no doubt this restaurant has slipped. The first 3 times I went there was fantastic. The food was outstanding and the service even better. This last time the service was only fair, and the food unacceptable. One of the four of us had Salmon, ordered medium, came out raw. Not even medium Rare.
My Veal Chop was about as tender as a Sirloin at the grocery store, and the sides just weren't what you would expect. The creamed spinach was horrible, I don't know what they did to it, but it was bad. Asparagus came without hollandaise sauce, or butter, nothing!! The waittress dissappeared when the food arrived, and came back about half way through the dinner and ask half hardly if everything was OK. At that point it was too late to say anything. I can't stand to have to send food back to the kitchen because the chef can't prepare an entree as ordered. It will come back over cooked if you do. They only get one chance with me. There is an expectation that comes with $40 entrees, and $14 salads, and they did not deliver. If you compare it to Outback, then it was OK, but if you compare it to any other fine dinning place then they failed. The Sommelier was helpful, and I enjoyed talking to him. Had to specifically ask for him to come, which I'm not sure that should be the case, but that's what happened. I also sent a note to the Emerils website about the disappointing meal. Never heard back from them. They have a place for commets and want your email address and phone number, but I guess they only like to here from people who think average service and food is really good. If you go here you'll waste at least $100 per person and get a average meal at best.
Great steak, great service, great experience!!!!!. After reading prior reviews, I was hesitant to dine at Delmonicos. We tried it anyway, and I felt an appropriate review was necessary. This is a great restaurant in every way. The food, service and atmosphere were what one would expect for a Five Star restaurant. The service is professional, but not stuffy. It is not an inexpensive restaurant. Plan on spending $100 per person, but it will be worth it. Don't leave Vegas without dining at Delmonico's!!!!!!!!!
Not Recommended!!!!. I wanted to try this place based on the reputation of Emeril Lasasse. To my dissapointment, this place did not measure up to even meeting basic expectations. My boss and I ordered steaks that were not prepared at the correct tempature and a tastless appetizer that was billed as a signature dish (Barbecue Shrimp). I do not go to places based on the name or alleged reputation, I go based on the tase and quality of the food. While I still like Emeril Lagasse, I will not revisit Delmonico Steakhouse.
Mmmm, what a steak....
I was recently in Vegas with my girlfriend for a 5 day vacation. We went to Delmonico before going to see Blue Man Group at the Venetian. The service at Delmonico was spectacular. It almost seemed as if there was a 1:1 ratio on patrons to wait staff. I never had a problem with my water not being refilled. In fact, as I was commenting to my girlfriend that my glass was 2/3 full, the emptiest it'd been the whole night, I saw a hand come out of nowhere and refill my glass.
I ordered the Filet Mignon and a side of Broccoli and I was not let down by the taste. While my steak was not as tender as hers, it had the taste I was expecting. For desert, she had the Double Chocolate Fudge Cake Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Malted Creme Anglaise and I had Bob?s Butterscotch Creme Brulee with White Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies. All in all a delicious meal. One of the best I've ever had.
I would say that the dress code is not strictly enforced as I saw some t-shirts in the restaurant. But, be prepared to spend quite a bit for a tasty meal. I'd highly recommend Delmonico.
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. The service was not attentive. We were passed over for the bread service serveral times. Water was only refilled once. The tomatoe salad was soggy and the cream spanich was so salty it was not edible. The steak was charred and arrive warm. My husband was not offered a refill on his wine. This was certainly not the BAM expericence i was seeking. Emeril this place needs work.
For the price, there are so many other better places. We went to Delmonico's with a group of friends. One of the gals recommended the place and made the reservations. The table we sat at was not very comfortable and the ambiance was not impressive. I ordered the filet mignon which wasn't the quality I expected for being a steakhouse. The sides were really good. But for the price and quality of food, there are plenty of other places to have a really good steak.
Great overall restaurant, worth the money. The biggest thing I have to say about Delmonico is to go for the New Orleans influenced dishes that you would expect from Emeril and you won't be disappointed. The basic steak is pretty good but probably not up to par with the prices (in my opinion) - go for the flavors and fantastic preparation of the barbecue shrimp, gumbo, foie gras, etc. and look for some of the steak specials with more cajun/creole influences in the preparation. For dessert, their bread pudding is the best I've ever had and the wine list by the glass is excellent so you can find a perfect pairing for every course.
can be outstanding, service allways top notch!!. i have had the very best steak of my life at delmonico,but i have also had a very average steak there also!! this is a beautiful room and the service is outstanding!! the sides and apps are allways great and they really treat you like royalty! two oustanding meals and one good but not great meal,you should get the bone in ribeye dry aged , if it is one of the good nights you will be blown away!! it is that good.
Big juicy steaks!. The steaks here are wonderful. Emerils prawns were a great start as well. The place is rather minimalist which was a nice change from all the glitz and lights everywhere in Vegas. The service was great and I would definitely go back.
best steak. It's pricey but worth it if you want more then 1 server waiting on your every need. The Filet melts in your mouth and the food is just delicious. If you get the chance pamper yourself here it's so worth it!
