    My husband and I tried this on a Friday night and really enjoyed it. Great service and lots of interesting choices. The cheesesteak egg rolls were a perfect appetizer. We each tried the Brussels sprout salad and it was yummy. My husband ordered the 8 oz filet with the truffle butter and it was the best steak either of us has had in a long time. I had the shrimp and grits and they were quite good too. We split the choc cake with vanilla bean ice cream - always a fav dessert. The bar was lively but we were happy to enjoy a glass of Malbec at our table. We will definitely be back.

    We started at the bar where we were greeted by a waiter on his first day. He didn't know if the restaurant had a happy hour or I'd there were any specials. He did get us our Hendricks and tonic expediently so that was a plus. We then met up with the other couple joining us for dinner where we were greeted by our waitress. She took care if us. Explained the specials well and answered all of our questions about the menu. Appetizers, entrée's and desserts were all "out of this world". I highly recommend del Frisco's grille on upper kirby.

    wasn't impressed with the grits cakes the waiter recommended. Additionally, the portion of the Red fish dish with dirty rice was disappointing. Had to repeat myself a few times with requests to the waiter till I finally just asked whomever passed by. No refill on water during my visit until I was leaving! :/

    I first visited Del Frisco's Grille last March, around the time it first opened and I thought the food was amazing. This time, I'm not sure what happened. I had barbequed chicken and shrimp as an entrée and I knew from the messy plating that it wasn't going to be great. There was nothing spectacular about the meal and if this was my first experience, I probably would never go back. I tried to drown the chicken in barbeque sauce to somehow make it better than it was, but no such luck. It took a long time for our food to arrive and the manager graciously brought deviled eggs to our table as a concession for the long wait -- but neither me or the other guest eats deviled eggs so we just sat and waited for our subpar food to arrive.

    We have been to Del Frisco's Grill a few times and every time it is a great experience. THe service is great and the food is wonderful. My wife had the lamb burger and could not saying how much she enjoyed it. I had the filet medallions and they were cooked perfectly and the sauce was tasty. Nice place to go with friends or just when you want to have a nice dinner with that someone special. THey get crowded so be sure to make a reservation.

    We ordered off the HRW menu - pork chop overcooked and dry...had to SAW through the filet...grits bland...pasta for mac & cheese not cooked in salted water (or enough salt) and was bland with soggy topping. The regular menu looks very interesting with some different offerings, but probably will not go back because of the poor food quality experienced for HRW. The service was outstanding. Our serving staff was excellent - very attentive and on top of drinks, water, clearing, etc.

    Overall, this is a great restaurant. We had experienced other 4/5 star restaurants before and this is definitely on our top 5 list. We went here for dinner and Houston Restaurant Week. For the main course, we ordered the filet mignon and pork chops. Both were cooked to our taste (medium). For the appetizers, we had the tomato bisque and the corn chowder. Both were made hot and excellent. For dessert, we had the peanut butter toffee and pecan pie. They were excellent as well. The service was great and the staff was very attentive and entertaining. They even gave us a $20 off for the next dine-in if we ever come back. If you have never been here before, I would recommend giving this place a try, at least once.

    The real problem was the noise. The restaurant was quite loud, a result of both very loud piped in music and conversations at nearby tables. The food was very good, but not what I would consider great. The carrot cake, however, was superb. There seemed to be some service problems, perhaps the result of a change in shift. There were a lot of servers milling around, but they did not seem to be checking the table as regularly as they should for drink refills, etc.

    After hearing such great reviews I thought I would try this place out for dinner and I was disappointed. The food wasn't good and the scene wasn't lively at all. It was just hustle and bustle. We were looking for great food, good music and beautiful people.... This wasn't it. Maybe the dinner scene is better and has a differnt vibe.

    The pimento cheese fritters were good, but needed more ranch. The wedge salad was dry and needed more dressing. The flavors were spot on but lack small details. The N.Y. Strip was really tough, I mean jaw workout tough for Med Rare. It is sad that I will never again order a steak from a company who put themselves on the map for steaks. I did not send it back because I felt we were one of those tables asking for extra stuff each coarse. The potential was there for a great meal. The mac and cheese side item was simply amazing. The best mac and cheese ever! My wife's salmon was cooked to perfection, but the Strawberry glaze occupied by the Oscar topping was just weird. Sometimes less is more. The pecan pie was legendary!

    We booked a table for 4 during Houston Restaurant week. Upon arrival the restaurant was booked, extremely crowded & LOUD! All good signs, except for the noise level. We were quickly taken to our table that looked like it was in a private dining room that the restaurant opened up based on the high level of reservations they had. Once we sat down our drink order was taken & we were given menus. So far so good. We ordered an appetizer, drinks & our main courses. The appetizer, drinks & 1st course were delivered to our table quite promptly. After that we waited patiently, an hour & a half for the main course. Once the main course was delivered our food was COLD & not good. We will never go back. Too many good restaurants in Houston.
