They were able to seat us early, which was excellent. The ambience was lovely, the wine was chilled to perfection, and the food was fabulous. My only somewhat negative comment is that the waiter was a bit rude and rough around the edges.

We started with some kind of spicy shrimp. We had the filet mignon and lobster tail. All the food was great. The highlight was the ‘East Meets West’ cocktail. If you’re a tequila person, you’ll love it. The environment was relaxing yet still fun. The staff was very friendly and genuine. We’ll definitely be back soon.

Great Food, Great experience every time. Great clean food choices. I haven't been to a steakhouse with such a nice selection of vegetables - we had the mushrooms, scallooped potatoes and broccoli rabe...would've ordered more veggies, but our waiter, of great integrity said "that's more than enough food!" And it was. My ribeye was cooked and seasoned to perfection. I will definitely dine there again.

Food was good and great value for the price. Im not a wine enthusiast but they had variety of options for either a glass or bottle.A nice low key date spot.

Waiter never gave me his name or introduced himself properly to say “hey guys my name is blank I’ll be your server can I get you started with anything” table wiped down after we were seated in front of us. Food was warm and just not good . For a steak no sear, just a flabby piece of meat . Most likely just an off night for the restaurant would give it another try but overall a bad experience $100 for two people a steak dinner no appetizer and my wife got general Taos chicken.

They were absolutely fantastic! We were treated like family. However, we wished they had liche martinis. Apparently, they ran out. We had our 4 month old there and he also was able to sleep w/ no issues since the place was quiet and I could actually talk and have great conversation w/o trying to compete with the background noise.

We went for our daughters birthday on Sat 12th of Sept 2020. We ordered the Pu Pu platter. A chicken dish, a porterhouse and a bacon wrapped fillet. The Pu Pu platter had assorted shrimp dishes/meat sticks and dumplings. One of the shrimp dishes appeared to be shrimp parm. It was a blob of tomato sauce with cheese on top. Unrecognizable just a blob of food that came out in one lump, not individual shrimp. The dumplings ware all I can say is slimy. Very strange. My porterhouse had absolutely no flavor, ho grill marks , no sear, nothing. It looked like it was take from frozen and put in an over. I also ordered a wild mushroom sauce, salty and gloppy. My daughters fillet was about the size of an egg and according to her tasteless also. I expect a restaurant that has the name of a steak in its name and server steak, to actually serve tasty food. Steer clear and don't waste your money. Oh and it wasn't cheap either. Really disappointing. Wont be back!

Brandon & team have won a warms spot in the hearts of Cedar Grove’s people. This is a gourmet that feels like a local. Whether pick up or al fresco, this is a go-to spot. My only worry: the Montclair crowd finds out and starts packing the place! 😀

Ordered the shrimp wrapped in bacon and it was tremendous. Oysters were on point and the customer service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, but especially for sea food lovers.

Food was delicious as usual. Outdoor dining was nice. Only complaint was the parking lot is slanted so drinks kept sliding down the table. Need some kind of disposable coasters

Our first outdoor dining experience in NJ was a great success! Attentive yet completely contactless service (thanks to QR code menu and payment options!). Always know the food will be great here but glad to see nothing's changed with the quality of the apps, steaks and sides. Host Brad (f.k.a Brandon) was so accommodating and friendly. Felt like we were being served a private dinner on our patio at home.

This was our first dining out experience since COVID hit and we were sheltered in place. It’s been 12 weeks since we ate out. Our daughter just graduated high school and we thought Delmonica’s would be the perfect place to celebrate. The experience was excellent. All tables were outside, with plenty of distance, and all staff and guest wore masks when not sitting. Food was outstanding! Service was outstanding! We will definitely be back.

Service was attentive and very friendly. Food was average at best, steak was a fair cut with butter and garlic. Clearly not an aged beef. Calamari was also fair, marinara sauce was obviously out of a jar in a ketchup cup.
