    was looking for a "steak place" to take my wife for her birthday. Being a lifetime Chicagoan, I was shocked to have never heard of Del Frisco's before. when comparing to other "name" places (including some right in the neighborhood) it came out higher in all grades. I must say that I am in total agreement! the food was superb, the service was unmatched and the ambiance was both romantic and upbeat. I have already recommended to some of my friends and co-workers.

    Food was great, service was great, music too loud, room temperature too cold. Would have given 5 stars, but for the noise level. [I'm always cold, so the room temperature may not have bothered everyone)

    The food from appetizers to entrées to desert was excellent. The wait staff was constantly mingling and conferring with each other right in front of our table so it was very distracting and disruptive throughout the meal. The noise level was very high and between the waitstaff talking at our table all evening and the large groups it was nearly impossible to have a conversation over dinner. Very frustrating experience because the food was so good.

    Great choice for any occasion! My wife and I went for our 4 year wedding anniversary and were blown away. We were greeted at our table with a Happy Anniversary card. Nice touch. The cocktails were exceptional and the wine list was fit for any wine enthusiast. The food was really good. We both enjoyed the lobster mac & cheese and the calamari. Our waitress, Ashley, was knowledgeable and very pleasant. And despite being and having no room for dessert they gave us a slice of cheesecake with four candles to take home. Great experience. Will definitely be back.

    I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and the setting was nice. Ppeople were conversing and it was nice. The lobster bisque was wonderfully made. I ordered the filet Mignon, well done and cut down the middle but it tasted a little burned and crunchy on the outside. I have definitely had better steak, but our waiter was great! The only problem I had was with the girl in the front who told me that I had to pay for my drink at the bar before she took us to our table. That was very rude because I shouldn't have to pay right away if I'm in the middle of a conversation because she said I had to. Service wasn't the best. Word of advice, don't tell the customer what they should do, let them tell you what they want!

    I've been to this restaurant a few times but this time was disheartening. I'm always invited here for business meetings & service at all times prior has been always mediocre but the food is great! This visit, my server stereotyped my party & did not offer the same level of service to my party as she did her other tables- I observed her being nice and smiley with her other customers. I felt that it was because we were African American and her own personal biases. She made a comment asking if we were going to share one entree---I laughed and told her no. She continued to rush us through ordering. Lastly, for dessert, she held menus up in front of us (to our faces) instead of laying them on the table as she did her other guest. Sad-it's 2014.

    I dined on a very busy Saturday night which is okay with me. I did not mind the crowd and I had reservations. I was very disappointed in the the taste of the food and the service recieved. I feel as if the quality of the food and service was lacking due to how busy the resturant was at the time.

    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!

    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! !!

    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.

    While this is a great restaurant, there are too many better restaurants in Chicago. The Del Frisco's in Dallas and Las Vegas are heads and shoulders above this one. If this is the first Del Frisco's that you go to, don't let it jade you from going to another location. Honestly, Vegas is one of the finest steakhouses on the country. This Chicago store does not hold a candle to it.

    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.
