    We had a group of 5 guys and we all loved it. The food was phenomenal and the service even better. I am in a wheelchair with some motor function difficulties, without me asking even they asked if I wanted my steak cut up. That was a great gesture and one I definitely took them up on. The only thing I'll say is that when they take away your food be sure to ask for it to be wrapped up, I didn't and I had no leftovers to enjoy. I will definitely be back!

    I have eaten at many steam places un Chicago and ha e struggled to say which one is my favorite sin e The Chucago Cop House went downhill. I will definitely mark Del Frisco's as my favorite. I had the best Bone-in Strip ever and the service was outstanding. Our waitrr Colten was the best.

    The service here was amazing! I was celebrating my birthday and they had a birthday card for me when I arrived !! I love the personal touches... my downside was that every vegetable is.cooked in bacon so we didn't even get a side and I was so looking forward to a great brussel sprout. I had the crab cake it was pretty good but not spectacular. The accompanying item was a pasta that was pretty undercooked and a little bland. I asked for a substitute side that didn't come so I was a bit bummed but the molten chocolate cake was AMAZING! !!

    I had flown to Chicago to celebrate my daughter's birthday. A friend had told me about the restaurant and I was excited to try it. We were greeted in the entry way by a friendly hostess. Our server, Baroom, was friendly, and very helpful with recommendations. Every bit of our meal was exquisite! We will be dining there again on my next trip!

    We have dined at about 6 of the top steakhouses in town. Hands down, this was the best steak (bone-in ribeye) I've had. Their "doneness" standards may be a bit off from others, so I had to send back for about 2 more minutes. I eat medium (hot pink throughout). First came very dark inside and barely warm to touch. I will clarify that on my next trip there (real soon, I hope). More variety in the sides than most steakhouses, and same with the desserts. Not the usual key lime pie, chocolate molten cake, etc. The restaurant itself is beautiful, 3 stories with wine racks stacked up to all three floors. Lots of wait staff, but they don't bother you. I'm very picky, and this was outstanding. Our dining companion agreed.

    You won't go wrong with Del Frisco's! Steaks were cooked to perfection with great seasoning. I'd never seen a bigger wine list, it was a 20+ page book! Staff was great and was always around but gave you privacy. We will most certainly be back every visit to Chicago!

    Beautiful room, upbeat, on-trend music, room between tables for privacy. Sadly, service was poor, the meal just ok. At nearly $1,000 for a dinner for 8 - two of whom did not drink, we have had better steaks and better meals overall at other classic Chicago steakhouses. They don't unabashedly showcase their meat - instead offering an array of sauces, toppings and "crusts" that mask the flavor. If you're paying $65 for an aged steak, you want to be able to taste the beef! Our enthusiastic but inexperienced waiter didn't know the menu, forgot to ask about soups/salads as he took orders, and spilled red wine all over the table and my glass and NEVER cleaned it up. There are much better steak experiences in Chicago

    Del Frisco's has a great atomosphere. It is a perfect venue to host an event or simply have a dinner for 2. The food is fantastic! We loved the wedge salad, filet, lobster mac & cheese, crab cake and crab legs. I have been to Chicago Cut, Chicago Chop House, Bavette's, Capital Grille, Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc., but Del Frisco's filet was perfect cooked and seasoned to bring out the natural flavor of the meat.

    Wine lovers look no more! This place has ALL of them! When they say they said they have a notable wine list, they were not lying. The list looks like a bible. Other than the wine, the food is fantastic and the side portion are large enough to share. You must try the lobster Mac and cheese. The wait staff is amazing as well. Beautiful bathroom as super clean too.

    We both thought the Fillet was cooked to perfection. The Chateau Potatoes were creamy, not waxy as was stated in a review. I especially enjoyed the creamy house dressing on the salad. The service was excellent and everyone was friendly. The restaurant has a great ambience and is very relaxing. I would definitely recommend Del Frisco's to my family and friends.

    The food is by far the star here, as the service can seem rather refined but without any personality. The service staff may want to seek a spark of energy outside of DF and bring it into work with them, as we had a so so experience with our bartender and our server. As a server, I know what to expect and have higher expectations, and they were very prompt with bringing our drinks and food, but just showed very little excitement to be there.

    I went to Del Frisco's for my birthday last Friday night and everything was amazing. The pre-dinner drinks, the friendly hostesses and servers, and last but not least - the incredible food! I chose the summer pairing combo which came with a salad, a melt-in-your-mouth filet, a succulent crab cake and delicious creamed spinach. To finish off my special night, the servers surprised my party with deserts to go around the table that were a perfect way to end the evening. I would highly recommend this place and hope to go again in the near future!

    This was our second visit. While we enjoyed our meal the first time the same could not be said of the second. Our steaks were way over salted. We should have sent them back but we were with friends and that would have thrown the timing off. It's too bad because the restaurant is beautiful and the service very attentive. Given the premium prices for such fine steaks there is no excuse for inconsistency in the kitchen. Unfortunately, we will probably not be back.

    This is our second time at the Chicago Del Frisco's location. While our food was generally better than the previous visit, it was still lacking. My wife had scallops, a couple of which were still raw in the middle (not rare, raw). My $50+ rib-eye, while well-cooked, just lacked flavor. It had almost no seasoning and the beef itself wasn't anything special. We have been to many steakhouses throughout Chicago and the country and just don't think Del Frisco's in Chicago lives up to the expectations of a high-end steakhouse. On a positive note, the environment is warm and welcoming, and the service is about as good as you can get. That somewhat helps justify the prices, but let's face it, the primary reason to dine out is the food.

    In a city of outstanding steak houses, Del Frisco's is fine, but not among the top. Best part of the meal was the crab cake. Their Summer Special Prix Fixe was a good value. I doubt I will return.
