    Our server was very nice but the overall experience was disappointing. The food was cold and it took forever and after several in our group decided to have the evening's special we were told that they had sold out of the item. Also, it was so loud that we could not even have a casual conversation during our meal. I will not come back unless something changes at Del Frisco's Grille.

    Food was good but didn't live up the my Del Frisco's taste. The orignal Del Frisco's was much better. My steak seemed a little dry and over cooked from what I ordered. I would dine here again.

    Not really a complainer however when I drop a 100 bucks for dinner and the waitress totally forgets my wedge salad that I had to add on ala carte it's kind of a big deal. Steaks are to die for in had the twin filet special and they were amazing. Cut just like butter. I would recommend this place again. Only thing I would recommend is that the you ask your server to repeat back the order.

    This place is a gem. Not only great for an evening of fine dining, but a delightful place for outdoor Sunday brunch. The peach sangria and diverse brunch menu is best enjoyed on the patio to enjoy great fall Dallas weather. Umbrellas and misters battle any lingering summer sun. The service, top notch!

    Had a great meal at Del Frisco's in Dallas. Menu was good, traditional favorites with a modern twist. Steak was excellent. Prices lean towards high but not terribly so. I would go here again, however parking was a nightmare. Many roads around the restaurant are under construction and are closed off as a result. Had to drive around in 5-minute loops three times before I finally found something. Caused me to be 15 minutes late for my reservation, but fortunately I was still seated. Our waitress was fantastic, friendly, chatty, charming!

    This was our family's second visit to Del Frisco's Grille, after a good, but pricey meal during restaurant week in August. The manager did not allow us to use a $25 reward which we had accrued on our points card after our first visit, as he told us the card had not been registered correctly. We explained to the manager that we had called Del Frisco's Grille before making reservations to make sure that our card and reward was in order, and had been told that we were set to go. Feel that the least the server/manager could have done would have been to comp our dessert, which we would not have ordered had we known we were obligated to pay the full price of the bill.Due to this misunderstanding, doubt that we will be returning anytime soon.

    Once again service is lacking. Grabbing plarptes before asking if you are finished, dropping full glasses in front of table, and the disappearing act once the check arrives, and after the card is taken. It took 20 minutes to pay the bill in an almost empty restaraunt. During a business lunch this is highly unacceptable. I keep giving the service a chance and nothing has changed. It's like its Del's minor league team

    I think this is a great spot for a group dinner - I like the downstairs vs upstairs atmosphere. We had a variety of appetizers - the cheesesteak eggrolls are especially tasty! The steak was a little underwhelming and slightly overcooked. The staff was very understanding and willing to swap it out for another steak, which is much appreciated, but didn't care to wait for another steak. Drinks are adequately priced for its location in Dallas. Overall, a good starting point to your evening around Dallas! I'll come back another time to try out other entree items.

    My wife ordered Sole, I ordered Ahi Tuna. We had a flatbread pizza as well. The pizza was quite tasty and crisp. My wife really enjoyed the Sole, describing it as "the perfect meal" for her. I wasn't expecting what I got when I ordered Tuna. What I got was sashimi on top of cold spaghetti noodles. I enjoy sushi, but wasn't expecting that.

    Very nice atmosphere. Went for brunch and had the chicken and waffles. The fried flatten overly deep fried chicken breast is not quite what I expected. I guess when you think of having fried chicken....you think of wings, thighs or a juicy fried breast. I don't think of a thin fried chicken breast. Now...the waffle....that was awesome. It was my first time there and I'll definitely go back and try something else off the menu.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Everything was great food, our waiter was exceptional, and attention to details great. I have been here severals times. My only concern was the valet parking location was moved since the last time I was there….It was in a heavy traffic area. The safety factor in the new location was better. It was raining the night we went. In the past, valet attendants had umbrella, this time no umbrella, the distance to walk is short unless you are in the rain. We had to ask which direction was best, not offered by the valet service. Not a big deal on a regular evening, but with the rain, they might consider helping out a little more I tip very generously but with the new $5.00 charge for the valet service, the rain.

    Great dining experience for a special night. Definitely recommend reservations on weekends, but I believe walk-ins were quickly accomodated. I ordered a mojito, and although not the best I've ever had it was far from the worst. Absolutely loved the Ahi Tacos for appetizers, and the main course was spectacular (6 oz. Filet with a white sauce, the days special, and a 8 oz Filet Mignon). Dessert was the pinnacle of the night. I called in earlier and specially requested Banana Fosters for the occasion and was accomodated easily after speaking with the chef. It came out better than expected, bravo to the chef. Will definitely be coming back for seconds.

    Didn't have a steak, heard they are good, however the chicken schnitzel and the prime beef sandwich were horrible. I was trying to find a sandwich compatible to the Houston's prime rib sandwich and man was I disappointed. Had the fried phili cheesteak egg rolls and those were great. I didn't know the same beef was in the prime sandwich as in the phili egg rolls. Wow what a shocker.. Not a fan. Schnitzel.. Kinda blan $9 asperogus with 5 pieces... I am not a complainer but this makes me sound like I am sorry. Not a goo $150 night out with the lady..

    This was a wonderful dinner but not our kind of dining experience. It is a bar scene for after work in Uptown. We are 60 and when we go out for a special evening we prefer a little less noise. However, the food, service and management were terrific! We probably won't go back but our 28 year old son would love it!

    We dined w elderly relatives on a Monday night. We weren't drinking & had special requests- not anyone's ideal diners....however our server, Amber, treated us like her most important table. She was patient (bless her) and attentive. Our glasses were never empty & she even kept them full of ice. All the special requests were granted w a smile. We ordered 3 steak salads & a steak sandwich; all w different temp requests. They came out perfect & at the same time. That, my friends is an example of a top notch kitchen. Our food & desserts were excellent. We came in at the last minute but will be coming back "on purpose" for sure.

    I enjoyed my drink. I got the VIP with a splash of strawberry which was really good. The two appetizers I had were the jumbo lump crab cake and deviled eggs. The jumbo lump crab cake was good but I was expecting more of a baked crab cake with a crunchy breaded coating. I did love the dressing that was drizzled over it though. The deviled egg was ok. The drizzled sauce made it taste better but by itself it didn't leave a lasting impression for me. It was also served VERY cold. I ordered the chicken fried ribeye with mashed potatoes, which was decent. The gravy was a brown gravy (not cream) and it was VERY heavy on Indian spices. The mashed potatoes were not all that great and it shared the same brown gravy as the chicken fried ribeye.

    The menu is varied and the server, David was very helpful and attentive. However, we arrived early on our way to the theater and the restaurant was not busy. They escorted us right to a table close to the bathrooms! We requested a better option which they gave us but the hostess had to walk back downstairs and get approval to move us. Not very smooth or 'user friendly'. When the restaurant first opened everyone was VERY ATTENTIVE TO OUR NEEDS AND TO THE NEEDS OF EVERYONE IN THE PLACE. the quality control aspect as far as PR seems to have gone away. The coconut creme pie was really delectable enough for 4 of us to share.

    It was a great balance between, romantic but not overly exaggerated because with the right group, you could throw a party and the atmosphere could cater to that as well. Most places were closed on Sundays. This is the one and only place downtown for a last minute descent meal that your wife would enjoy. It got me some brownie points.

    We had reservations at DTC and wanted a special restaurant not too far away from the arts district. Del Frisco's Grille - McKinney Ave was perfect. It wasn't crowded (we went really early) and was just about 5 minutes away from the theatre. And to top it off the food was GREAT!! Steak was perfect and the best one we've had so far in Dallas. Looking forward to going back.

    We spent over $1,000 including tip and we thought our dining experience overall was not worth it. We are Del Frisco fans, but it seems to be hit and miss at Del Frisco's Grill for us. Jordan, and his helpers, were great servers! Drinks and appetizers were great! Entrees not so much. My salmon was pretty good, and the green side was almost tasteless and hard to eat. Four people ordered the seafood special and no one liked it and said it was not hot enough when served. I was told that the chicken fried rib eye steak was real good according to those that had it. Desserts were mostly great except bread pudding was not what was expected and was not that good. Overall, it was good, but we were disappointed compared to past experiences.
