    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.

    I don't know how else to describe my last meal here other than "2 Hours of Dining Bliss". Everything was perfect, and this is not an exaggeration. No wait for my table, service was impeccable (Jenna had a great attitude and had some wonderful recommendations), drinks were flowing (VIPs and white sangria), and food was perfection on a plate (cheesesteak eggrolls, wedge salad, veal meatloaf, coconut cream pie). Don't know what else to say other than we cannot wait until our next meal here.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    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.

    I brought my husband to this restaurant to celebrate his birthday and I was very pleased and very happy with the service we received from the point of making reservations up until we left. Superb staff, food, drinks, ambience, ect. My husband was so happy and relaxed as he enjoyed his birthday. The staff were very attentive and management took time out to say Happy birthday to my husband as if they personally knew him. We will definitely come again just because. Love love love this place.

    The Crabcake Benedict is hands down the best entree on the Brunch menu. Our waiter, Taylor, was attentive, knowledgable and charming. He provided excellent service and made us feel cared for. Taylor recommended the VIP, Vodka infused Pineapple martini, which was excellent.

    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.

    Dined on 7/20/2014
    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.

    We have eaten at Del Frisco's for years at the Addison location-always good -great service and food. We had never eaten at this location on McKinney. My husband ordered the chicken fried rib eye -I think it was called. It was one of their signature dishes on the menu. My husband said it was terrible-looked more like a flank steak maybe-not even a good chicken fried steak. I had the filet of sole with crab meat on top-----it was very mediocre! We told our server about the poor quality of food and he offered to take of bill. My husband always hated to do that but another manager insisted on giving us a free dessert and a coupon for a free appetizer for a next visit. The dessert was to die for---coconut cream pie- not your ordinary pie at all!

    Very disappointed sums it up. The service rivaled non other than Chilis Bar and Grill. The waiter we were supposed to have never showed up at our table so I had to go ask the host to provide another server. The food was about half as good as the traditional Del Friscos. We were hoping to find a casual spot with great food and service, not going to happen here. After a very mediocre experience I paid my $200 tab that only included my wife, my 14 year old son, and myself and off we went to get our car out of valet which costs another $5. This place is very good about taking your money, not so good about earning it. Save yourself the trouble and go to the real version or even nick and SAMs grill will treat you better.

    The menu for dinner was more to our pallet the brunch was fine but not super. We will go back for dinner but not for brunch. The wait was long which we don't mind if the food is fantastic and it wasn't. My husband's tuna was great but that was more a dinner food. So that's why will would go back for dinner.

    I thought this was a destination steakhouse, but there are actually just a few steaks on the menu. My husband had the strip, and I had a filet, and both were excellent. It's good to know though that there are more casual items on the menu, so if we're not feeling like eating or paying for a steak dinner, the burger menu sounds great too!

    I really enjoy having both business and personal meetings at Del Friscos, especially durning evenings on the upstairs balcony where the ambience is nice , open sky, mister fans and a fire treatment around the bar. Great if you just want to sit outside, have some great apps and and entree. Waiters are on top of it and the balcony is somewhat removed from the louder more traditional dining experience.

    Okay so it started with a waiter who turned out to not be our waiter. Then the waiter came. Then we ordered cocktails. Then he showed up every 5 minutes like clockwork. "How's it going?" "Ready to order?" "More wine? Water? etc etc etc. And the floor manager stopped by and another manager stopped by. All told - at least 20 table touches. It was annoying. Food was okay. Nothing bad, nothing memorable. Pricey.
