    Only the Chicago Chop House has shown prices higher than this place. $15 for a small (and I do mean small) lump crabcake? Really? The sauce with it was among the best I've had but c'mon.

    This was our first visit to Del Frisco's and it was fabulous! It was my partner's birthday, and they even gave him a free chocolate soufflé. Our server was Ashley, and she was spot on. We'll definitely be back, and have already told friends about our experience. Top Notch!

    Steak was very good; but they are lacking flavor on the side dishes and the chicken. If you are going here solely for steak and no side dishes you are in good shape. The service was excellent, the staff really made you feel special.

    The restaurant is lovely, and the food was good, but they were very pushy on wine sales, which is I assume where they make their money.

    This establishment is the ultimate in excellent service! The staff is so attentive! This is the place for special occasions! My wife and I celebrated eleven years together there. The prices are not for anyone on a tight budget. If you are a foodie who enjoys fine dining, I highly recommend this restaurant.

  • Outstanding, WATCH THE PEPPER !
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/6/2014
    We have been to other Del Frisco's restaurants and to this particular restaurant on one other occasion. This was a Thursday night, 8:30pm and the place was packed. I prefer my steak medium rare and kicked to the rare side....When I do steaks at home I use garlic salt with some pepper, then sear it. I only order NY Strips, prime where available. The steak at Del Frisco's was perfectly prepared EXCEPT....heavy on the Sea Salt and PEPPER. The first few bites were good, good flavor, then the pepper hit...wow...I couldn't finish the steak..tried but I don't like spicy food....SO, I highly recommend any of the Del Frisco restaurants, just be sure to tell them how you like the spice on your steak..

    As one of the hosts for a business lunch, I absolutely loved the ambiance! The facility was not overbooked and the noise level was such that a conversation was easily heard at the table with just enough music playing in the background to drown out the conversations taking place at nearby tables. Our waiter was exceptional. He clearly explained the drink selection, menu and was attentive throughout without being overbearing. As a well known steak house, I was disappointed that my filet was cool (not cold, but not hot or warm). As we were limited on time, I chose to consume rather than return the filet. Regardless of the temperature, it was delicious! I bet it would have made my 'perfect cut' list had it been served.

    Although I would normally take my work team to Gibson's when in Chicago, we couldn't get a table. I have had great meals at Del Frisco's in Philadelphia so I figured Del Frisco's in Chicago was a good bet. And it absolutely was. 22oz Bone-In Ribeye cooked to medium rare perfection.

    The food was good but they have crammed a lot of tables into this restaurant. The waiter forgot one of the items we ordered and disappeared for a while after he dropped off the check. A man behind us had food spilled down his back after a bus boy and a waiter collided. The tables are too close together. If I'm paying $40 for a steak the service should be better.

    I arrived with reservations alone to celebrate my birthday and waited an hour for a table. Very few apologies or any comp. Once I got to the table I was afraid I would be ignored because everyone seemed too busy to give quality service. Two managers passed by and didn't even acknowledge me. Pretty sad. My bar tab was transferred to the table and the bartender came to find me and admonish me that "we don't do that". I told him I was pretty drained from the poor service and he said "ok- BUT for future reference don't do it again"--sad. One bright spot- my server recognized my angst and tried to be friendly and offered birthday cake- great job! Nevertheless for a $185.00 late dinner --I am a disappointed foodie.

    The regional manager (Richie) will do whatever it takes to guarantee you have the best experience possible. The food is fabulous. The staff is grade A prime. Don't like something ( hard to imagine) they will fix it. They even got me bread from a local vendor when I asked when making my reservation. This place will soon be known as the best steakhouse in chi town. Del Frisco's at the esquire.

    After this place has now bee open about 2 years, we finally got there. Amazing! I've been to one it in Texas and Vegas over the years and Chicago lives up to the hype for sure. Everything from appetizers to salads to main course to dessert, incredible. And they don't rush anything making you feel like they're trying to turn the table but rather that you should enjoy every single bite. It's a do not miss in my opinion. We'll be back for sure!

    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.

    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.
