Del Posto - late night

kpsquared Dec 5, 2007 12:11 PM

I am wondering what the scene is like at Del Posto after 10pm on a Saturday night. My husband and I are celebrating an anniversary there, and I couldn't get a reservation there before 10 -- I'm afraid the restaurant might be "dead," which will just be depressing. Does anyone have experience dining there late-ish?

    I rarely go out to dinner before 9 or 9:30 and most restaurants are still packed and seating diners long after I sit down, especially on a Saturday night. I actually think they take reservations until 11pm, so you'll be fine.

      I had a drink at the bar on a recent Saturday night at around 11pm, and the place looked full. The vibe was very festive. There was a real energy.

        That's not really "late night" in terms of NYC dining. I had a 9:30 reservation on a Saturday in the summer in the enoteca room. Stayed until at least 11, and the restaurant remained crowded.

          Call same day and see if you can get into the Inotecha earlier. They only take same day reservations. It's a great menu, same great cooking, but a little more relaxed and fun.

            Thanks - we've been to inoteca lots...wanted to try something different/more special. But that's great to know they take reservations!
