I'd eaten at Delmonico's a couple of times before I started eating gluten free, and it was always a nice environment with pretty good food. However, after going gluten free, I ate there, and ordered a pasta dish off of the gluten free menu that they have there. I don't know what it was, but it made me incredibly sick (and I am not super sensitive to gluten - usually I don't have to worry about cross contamination). I've been pretty much terrified to go back so I don't know if it was a one time thing but, just a word of warning, I suppose.
It was an ok visit. Very dark inside the one area we were sitting. Their special delmonico steak was better the the my strip. The onions and mushrooms had a strange seasoning to them I didn't like them. Huge baked potato and antipasto salad. Hubs said their one beer was kinda flat. We did get a free cannoli cause it was our anniversary but I can't eat it cause it isn't gluten free. Tummy is kinda hurting don't know if the salad dressing was too rich for me or what. Music was on the loud side hard to hear our server and each other. UPDATE tummy totally killing me now. Can't figure out what caused it since the only thing I have eaten was from dinner. Won't be eating there again
There is no GF dedicated menu they offer to make dishes GF as an option. Only 4 dishes are GF on the menu. No appetizers. They do have GF penne but no dedicated fryer. I would consider this restaurant not very celiac friendly in my opinion. I am not celiac so I agreed to eat here.
Super friendly staff. Understood celiac. Cooks GF penne pasta in separate pots. Had the chicken Marsala and penne pasta. Was very good. No reaction. I’m only giving 4 stars because they didn’t have any GF bread options.
GREAT option for some steak of pasta - the menu of options for GF is limited but, it's a steak house so, there's not a ton of variety in general - staff is knowledgeable about Celiac and willing to make accommodations to dishes for you - SAFE EATS
Great food! They had a special gf menu and knowledge staff. My steak was cooked perfectly and they had gf pasta. Food was very reasonably priced (24 oz steak for $26- that’s a deal!). They have gf desserts, although I was to stuffed to have any. If you go on a busy night, you will be seated almost immediately, the food will just take awhile. This is understandable because of the size of the place. Overall, I didn’t get sick and loved the food. Would highly recommend!
Dec 2017: Many great options on their GF menu. Had the twin 8oz Pork chop Marsala with a side of garlic mashed potatoes rather than the pasta added additional side of sautéed mushrooms all cooked perfectly and Delicious! 1/15 & 1/31/18 Had the filet mignon with baked sweet potato and grilled asparagus. On 4/24/18 visit I tried the FILET MARSALA* 9 oz of Filet Tournedos with Mushrooms in a Marsala Wine Sauce. They have updated main menu to show GF Options and staff was very knowledgeable. A’++
we really enjoyed our dinner there tonight! the two of us with celiac were very well looked after. I had the haddock with pasta, my doghter just pasta with pommodoro and cheese. so tasty! can just be recommended!
There are so many options to choose from on their gluten free menu(way more thAn most ). Definitely one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. You can even have the cannoli without the shell for desert. I highly recommend this restaurant.
I stayed in a hotel a few miles from Delmonicos on my recent vacation and came here twice. The waitresses were excellent and took my allergy concerns very seriously. I had the Delmonico steak with baked potato one night and pork chops in a spicy tomato sauce with grilled peppers and onions and a side of gluten free pasta the second night. The food was delicious and I had no reactions. The prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend Delmonicos.
Very nice GF menu. Server was knowledgeable and had good communication with the chef regarding questions. I also eat dairy free in addition to GF but I still had plenty of options here. I had a house salad, a FANTASTIC steak, and gluten free pasta with a chunky tomato sauce. For DF, be aware that the regular marinara contains romano cheese, but the chunkier sauce is fine. My 7 year old (also GF/DF) enjoyed steak, plain GF pasta, steamed broccoli. Neither of us got sick. I am not Celiac but highly sensitive to gluten.
Curbside to go is great. Had gf penne vodka, they put the sauce separate to keep from getting mushy. The sauce is spicy, I like spicy foods but by far the spiciest vodka sauce I ever had. Only reason I dropped a star is because they included bread with my meal. Of course I was smart enough to call and ask if it was gf and she said no and didn't really realize what the issue would have been.
had a wonderful meal there on new years eve.there was about an hour waiting, but we stood at the bar,had a few drinks,and it was enjoyable.our meal was delish.all 4 of us were very very happy.i was impressed, because most times on new years eve, something always goes wrong.....this experience was very enjoyable.the delmonicos in Utica is by far one of my favorite restaurants.the greens are by far the best around....thank you for such an enjoyable evening.we'll be back very soon....
Daughter ordered from the GF menu, and told the server that she needed to eat GF. Long story short. They gave her regular pasta. They said sorry (hehehe)and gave us coupons for next meal free. Gave them away. She was not a happy camper.
I was up in Syracuse visiting my brother.I thought it was nice that they offered g-free pasta so we all decided to eat here. I ordered the shrimp scampi off the dedicated g-free menu and made certain the waitress knew I needed g-free. I igot my meal (only ok), the pasta-oddly enough-was unevenly cooked and when I got the end of my meal I found not g-free angel hair pasta in my dish...needless to say I had a reaction. The manager came over and apologized and did not charge me for my meal .. He felt genuinely bad about what happened. But that doesn't help me when I had plans after dinner that were ruined because of the reaction. I will never go back.
