    We frequent here quite often, and normally it is excellent. This visit, not so much. The waiter was non-existant for the first 15 minutes. Jaimie came and took our drink orders until the waiter showed. My wife ordered the filet special, and it was the fattiest filet she ever had, according to her. We can usually count on Del Frosco's Grille for impeccable service and food.

    We were a party of three eating early. The restaurant was mostly empty so it was rather confusing how the service was not as attentive as it could have been. The food was cooked perfectly and delicious but the drink refills were infrequent. The three of us got steak, again, prepared very nicely and a delight to eat. The dessert menus clearly need replacing or at least cleaning. Overall, we enjoyed our experience but a little more attention to detail would have made it a great experience.

    We had a very nice dinner. I love the Apartment 5D drink. The food was very good. My only issue was with our server. He offered several "off the menu" items, but didn't seem to know the cost of them. We asked him about one, he had to go ask. We chose to add the Oscar topping to our steak, after he told us it was the same price as the steak alone. Didn't make sense, but we asked. Of course when the bill came we discovered he was incorrect. Very frustrating since I made a point to ask.

    We dine at Del Friscos several times a month. The food on this occasion was not up to par. The smoked pork chop was tough and not a good cut. Salads were fair. The service was spotty. Not what we normally expect.

    My wife and I both ordered the Filet. When we got our our steaks both were really undercooked and had to be sent back. We ordered medium well, steaks came out well done on the outside but blood rare inside. When we got them back again they were really charred on the outside and over cooked inside. The server was very attentive and did all she could to make up for the kitchen but the food was disappointing.

    Del Frisco's Grill is in a fun place at West Ave., has great outdoor seating but people walk out the door and smoke and it blows RIGHT ON YOU....ugh! The most disappointing thing was the food. It was mediocre at best. The "Heirloom Tomato Salad" was NOT Heirloom tomatoes. It was hard quartered tomatoes that were terrible! The service was a college kid from UH definitely just average. We dined at Perry's Steakhouse on Saturday and there was a stark difference between the Del Frisco staff. A well-trained wait staff can make all the difference in the dining experience! Even the DF mgr came by the table but didn't have the flare of an upscale restaurant with her mannerisms and ability to show her concern for your dining experience.

    I had almost given up on DFG after receiving poor service. Past few visits the waiter/waitress has rushed us through our meal. Finally we got Daniel and he was very attentive and did not make us feel rushed. Daniel would check up on us and asked if we wanted dessert or coffee which we had not been offered on our past two visits. Ahi tacos and cheesesteak egg rolls always a big hit. Kilt Lifter is a very good drink.

    A good friend was introducing my wife and I to his new girlfriend, and I suggested Del Frisco's Grill for brunch. It was a great suggestion. Not only was the food wonderful, and Arthur, the server was excellent and thoughtful, but the noise level was comfortable for extended conversation. I tried the chicken fried steak and eggs off the brunch menu while the others ate off the lunch menu. Everyone was very happy with their selection. My good friend tried the shrimp and grits and pronounced it wonderful. They had the coconut pie, a very decadent treat, garnished with white chocolate shavings, whereas we had the Nutella bread pudding, which was wonderful! One of my favorite places in Houston.

Only fault: arrived five minutes before opening. Front door open so we went in. Manager (?) kinda rude and asked us to leave. Will return though!

    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.

    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 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.
