Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first visit and a default due to availability after Mass on Sunday. We had a 12 year old, 9 year old, and 85 year old on a walker and ourselves. Place is clean, bright, cheerful with a nice view of the reservoir and friendly staff. Totally enjoyed my Bloody Mary. My MIL did not enjoy her Bloody Mary and it was quickly switched out for a lovely oj and champagne. Kids both enjoyed the Red Velvet waffles. We opted for no cream cheese filling and the accommodation was dealt with properly. My lamb burger was over cooked and under seasoned but I was so hungry I did not care. My husband was disappointed in the regular burger. It appeared to be two frozen burgers and over cooked. MIL loved her eggs benedict."

  • "Over-all the exprience was quite good. Service was terrific. Our only compliant was that th food was not hot when it was served. Theyhave recently opened and this maybe their growing pains."

  • "This is the second lunch/brunch and I've been very pleased. Interesting food. Very good service. Easy atmosphere. Noise at reasonable level, despite many tvs - they might have been muted with subtitles, I'm not sure."

  • "The place was not bad. The decor was nice, ambience a little too loud if you are going out on a date. The food was good and portions were on the very cusp of being for children. It was our first time there and probably the last. If it wasn't for the Amex coupon it would have been overpriced for what we got. The service was ok and when I asked to replace one side with another, my side was replaced but I got charged extra, the new nickel and dimming is a real turnoff especially when this is suppose to be an upscalish dining experience."

  • "My first visit to Del Frisco's. Four of us enjoyed good salads, nice view (if you look over parking lot) and good service. The only negative was the coffee. We asked for a new pot and for the second time, it was lukewarm, bitter and just not drinkable. We didn't want to make a big deal of it but I did notice they didn't take it off the bill. Otherwise, a good lunch experience."

  • "Del Frisco's Grille is not so easy to find (down a side street, then upstairs), but worth the trip. Once there you are greeted by a staff very interested in serving you well; and a lovely, rarely seen view of one of Newton's lakes. The menu is small but the choices are excellent, as is the food. This is certainly a spot we will be revisiting."

  • "Second time back, had lunch a few weeks ago. The food is just ok, not worthy of the prices they charge for it! Staff was energetic, and the way the drinks and food arrived, you would think they did not hear what we had requested. They did not pay attention to details. A great venue with great potential!"

  • "They have done a real great job considering there are several other great steak houses in the immediate vicinity. Their steaks were perfection and the wine list is excellent. Staff were very friendly and attentive. I recommend seating near the large windows to see the pond in the background. The lemon cake is also outstanding!"

  • "Everything was fantastic - my roommate matched to his #1 residency and we wanted somewhere nice but not too over the top to celebrate, Del Frisco's Grille was the perfect choice. While I love the real Del Frisco's down at the Seaport, I could still get the same cuts here without the formalities the other location brings. The CH location has a lighter, more business casual atmosphere that feels more welcoming to the average diner. The service and the food was what I expected from a Del Frisco's establishment, nothing was spared from the time we sat to the time we left. They took all of our special requests from the table location to having a bottle of champagne waiting to celebrate and executed them all to a T."

  • "Limited menu. Steak came out raw. Maître d said he'd return with hot side dish and never followed through. Had to ask for bread after salads delivered and half eaten. Why rush back?"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Unfortunately, the flat bread ovens were not working properly (prior power outrage), and we were told the restaurant ran out of pizza dough. It took over an hour to get a salad, which was just average in taste. With all the restaurants just opened in the Mall, this could be a big problem for you."

  • "2 of us arrived early. Hostess neglected to seat others when they arrived. I had ordered special birthday dessert which did not arrive. However, other dessert was comped."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Nothing tasted particularly good, nothing was egregiously bad. The room was interesting, but somehow or other vaguely unpleasant. Ineptitude was the order of the day: wrong orders, half filled teacups, long waits for drinks. The lunch menu was uninspired; there was no good beef option, as the only steak on the menu was a petit filet mignon, which isn't exactly a meat lover's steak. It was an experience that while not actively negative, doesn't want to be repeated. Even thought he lemon doberge cake was good, it is not enough of a reason to go back. Who is this place aimed at? The food is pedestrian, the ambiance a step up form a sports bar, it's noisy, and a hard ceiling, and there are TVs in too many locations- i just don't get it!"

  • "Have been there several times with very good experience. Last visit caught them on a bad night, out of some basics , unusually long food perpetration time for which the apologized and more than made up for. Made things right for the customer which is a good sign for an upscale eatery. Without a doubt will continue to frequent."

  • "We ate here at around 7 on a Sunday night and the service was the worst I have ever experienced. Just a few highlights: - After we ordered it, our beer took 20 minutes to arrive - The restaurant ran out of bread... never heard of such a thing - After we placed our order, our food took over an hour to arrive - The steak was not how we ordered it We have 4 other tables around us and every single one of them either complained or sent their food back. For a restaurant of this caliber, this type of service is simple unacceptable."

  • "Del Frisco's Grille has delicious food and a very fun atmosphere, too! The service is outstanding! We split a Caesar salad which was tasty but a little too heavily dressed. In addition, it would have been better if they had used white anchovies instead of regular anchovies! We also ordered the ahi tacos which were fabulous! It is one of their signature items and well worth ordering! We each got a prime sirloin for our entree, and we were not disappointed! They were cooked perfectly. We each switched our side from potato to fries. The fries are homemade, and I honestly wish that they weren't as good as they were because I would have eaten less of them! I absolutely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "We made a reservation and arrived on time. The hostess was not friendly. She told me that our table would be a few minutes. After waiting about 15 minutes she non apologetically explained that we were waiting because she had no menus. (?) when we finally got to our table our server arrived and while cordial, I had trouble understanding him as he had a very strong accent. In addition, he just didn't seem confident of his skills and was not too attentive. Water glasses were left empty, no bread before the meal. The food was good, but for the price, I would expect much better service."

  • "The menu may be simple but all the food I had was delicious. If you are a meat and potato kind of person then this would be a great spot. It also would be good for groups ( unless you are vegetarians.)."

  • "We weren't seated until 40 minutes after our reservation time. The manager was very nice to comp us some appetizers. Ahi taco appetizers were very good. We heard about the brussel sprout bacon pizza and the waitress said it was excellent and popular. We didn't like it at all, and my wife and I eat everything, so it's not that we're picky. The lobster roll was fine, but nothing special. Perhaps if bought a steak we've would have been happier, but other then that, it was disappointing. Obviously, this is only our opinion, so maybe you should try if for yourselves."

  • "We were a small party at this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The service at this Del Frisco's was outstanding the wait staff was very attentive to us, answered our questions about the menu items and made sure we were happy with our meal. Not just our waiter but any restaurant employee who happen to walk by our table was available to answer our questions which I have not seen too often in other restaurants. On top of this the food was excellent and plentiful as we could not finish our meal and needed 'doggy bags' . They also provided piece of birthday cake for the birthday girl which was much appreciated. An additional bonus was that our table was at a window that overlook a view of a pond that was nearby a very pleasant view."

  • "If you want good food, there are plenty other choices near it. I took my friends for its energetic atmosphere generally around its bar. Drink was decent but food wasn't anything to Bragg about. So if you want to be among vibrant people on Friday night after work if recommend. Hope you will have better luck with food then me!"

  • "I had low expectations when I went to eat here and I was amazed. I think I might have ordered the perfect meal for myself. I had the devil Eggs which were exceptional. My wife had the Tuna taco's which might the best I have ever had. I had the main course of the seared tuna over Japanese noodles with a peanut sauce which was very good. I will be returning."

  • "thank Goodness, the manager had the good sense of making the entire meal FREE, because the whole experience was a total disaster. THis past Saturday night, the place was packed and it took nearly 50 minutes to get our food. Once we got it (after repeated apologies from the waitress and manager) the food was cold… oh no! oh well, lesson learned: the food was tasty, but I believe the place is not prepared to serve a busy Sat night crowd."

  • "We went with my elderly parents to celebrate my daughters 19th birthday. There is an elevator which was wonderful since the restaurant is on the 2nd floor. There were 8 of us and we were squeezed into a booth was would be comfortable for 6 people. The food was very good but they never delivered a salad that my parents ordered. The waitress actually admitted that she had forgotten to place an order in for the salad. My husband had to remind the waitress for his side dish and my youngest daughter, who is allergic to cheese, asked for no cheese on her salad. Her salad arrived with cheese. The drinks were wonderful and the food was very good. We all did enjoy the experience and the food, but we were disappointed with these mistakes."

  • "I was alone and sat at the bar. The bartender was at the other end chatting with another older couple. These people clearly knew each other. She did look over at me after, perhaps, 10 minutes. Yes 10 minutes. That is a very long time when you are hungry and sitting alone at a bar. The bar was not crowded. I had my iPad with me so became engrossed in that while waiting. 5-7 minutes later, after disappearing from the bar for some time, the bartender returned and, with no apology, asked (politely) what I would like. My burger took 25 minutes in a lunch time setting where there were VERY few people seated. The burger was fine. The service was not. I have been previously several times without these problems so I shall return."

  • "I had a meeting with my accountants for lunch. The table was quite large which we needed to do our work. The choices for lunch were lengthy and we all ordered something different. Everything was delicious! I can't wait to go back and try something different. Saw the brunch menu while we were there - I will be going to brunch soon! Our waitress Katelyn was great - attentive and knew the menu. I love when the wait staff knows what they are serving."
