    Although priced similarly, Del Friscos Grille does not match up in food quality, atmosphere or service with the high-end steak houses (Morton's, Ruth Chris or Capital Grille)...next time I'll stick with the tried and true.

    This restaurant has an amazing wine list, incredible meat for all meat lovers and the service is outstanding. The cream spinach and crusty bread wow!, but what got our biggest Wow was the lemon Cake, incredible, you will not find this cake anywhere else. We took a piece home and had it for breakfast with a cup of coffee.

    We went to Del Frisco's in NYC after visiting the one in Santa Monica. We loved it. The steaks were excellent as were the side dishes. The shaved Brussels sprouts were different and everyone loved them. It was difficult to choose a dessert, but I loved the Nutella Bread Pudding. We would definitely go back.

    The menu is varied and the food is great. I'm not a wine person, however, the wine list seemed like it would satisfy most. The selection on entrées, appetizers, and flatbreads was unique and delicious. I would recommend looking it up online to make sure it's up your alley but if it sounds good them definitely try it, you won't be disappointed. The service was great and attentive and we lacked for nothing. It wasn't crowded, however, being the 4th of July so I can't vouch for how it would be any other night. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

    Took my wife and two kids (11 and 7) while on vacation in NYC. Cost less than Del Frisco's but food quality was just as good. Kids ordered off of appetizer menu while wife and I dined on filets. We would definately go back. Noise level was pretty loud so great for kids, but not for business dinnner or date night.

    Thought I had booked a table at the real Del FRisco, but discovered it was at the grill. Good thing they had a table available out side as the inside isn't very appealing. Food was very good. Service was very good, until we needed to get our check which took way too long as we were heading to theater.

    We made a reservation for 8 pm, walked in at 8 pm to a full house yet our table was ready and waiting for us. The staff was friendly and very informative. The general manager was wonderful and friendly; he checked in on us to make sure every thhing was delicious. The food and drinks were absolutely awesome. Even though the house was full the noise level was well under control. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

    absolutely fantastic service, staff couldn't of been more helpful and friendly. Dined here one night, booked into another restaurant for next night but after having pre dinner drinks and not liking the service we made our apologies and returned to Del Frisco's, we hadn't booked but they accommodated us especially after finding out which restaurant we had just walked out of.

    Slow slow service, even for cocktails. Soup, sweet potato frites, and cheesesteak eggrolls not warm enough. Spinach and mashed potatoes very good.....but the only highlights of mediocre meal. Sent medium rare steak filet mignons back, as way too dry and charred. Did not ask for replacement as service so slow would never have made show. Manager came by to ask re experience. We shared above info. His only comment "Filet is very lean and not as juicy as other cuts." We made no comment back, as his tone clearly told us we were at fault, rather than preparation attention not given.

    The food at the Grille was very good as is all Del Frisco restaurants, and prices were comparable. The wait staff was somewhat goofy, and really did not know her specials well, or if the food served was the same as in the other del frisco restaurants. we asked multiple times if the crab cake was the same and she was completely clueless, it is by the way. we had to ask for drink refills, again she was not up to the service levels we have come to enjoy at all the other del frisco restaurants we have been to. ambiance was ok. for the same money, skip this place and head over to the del frisco double eagle steak house just down the street!

    Del Frisco's needs to figure out what they are doing with this place or it won't be around for very long. Service is terrible. Both in the bar and at the table. The bar wasn't even busy and couldn't find a bartender to order drinks for 5+ minutes. Table service was a bit better but not much. Apps and dinner were edible but not great. Don't order the artichoke app as it is impossible to eat as prepared. Disappointing and expensive...

    My wife and I decided to go to the Grille because we were familiar with the main restaurant a few blocks away. This was quieter and more laid back than the main restaurant--perfect for a lunch inside or out. The location in Rock Center is great and we were greeted pleasantly and shown to a nice roomy booth. The server was one of the best and most attentive individuals-going out of his way to make our experience extremely enjoyable. I should mention the food. We split an appetizer--cheese steak egg rolls--fantastic!!! Then we each had a salad entree since it was lunch time--good decision on our part. My wife had the newly added Kale salad and I had the signature steak salad--both superb. I highly recommend the Grille-go eat happy!!!

    A tourist restaurant in Rockefeller Center, Del Frisco's Grille (like the front of a car?) lacks NYC sophistication. I loved my lunch salad (Asian). My wife hated hers (steak). Maybe you'll luck out.

    We arrived timely at 5:30 for our reservation. Restaurant was cold. Staff told us the restaurant does not regulate the heat. Waiter took our order and never came back to see us. Bread was finally brought to our table after we asked three times. The salad was excellent. The veal meat loaf was good but served cold as were the French fries. Didn't make sense. Could not find a waiter or staff to send it back. The waiter did not know that May is burger month at this restaurant. I had to take out my phone and show the waiter the email I got from the restaurant so I could order the burger with swiss cheese on pumpernickel bread with Russian dressing. No lights were on in the restaurant over our table in a booth. It was very hard to see and eat.

    the filet we had was wonderful. However our waitress was not very attentive. I had one glass of wine and would liked to h ave had another but no one came back to our table until our meal was done. Also I ordered a baked potatoe and requested butter. The baked potatoe came without the butter. By the time we got someones attention my baked potatoe was cold before I received the butter. Disappointing for the prices.

    We dined at Del Frisco's Grille for Mother's Day 2014. It was a beautiful day and we were fortunate to be able to sit outside which was a pleasant surprise. Great location for people watching in Rock Center. The restaurant was relatively empty for a 12:30 reservation so we had a choice of tables. Food was great and service was also great, BUT they don't have a children's menu. They were able to adjust a menu item to be kid friendly. Also they claim to only have two highchairs (and no boosters) for the entire restaurant. We were promised one as soon as one came available but they gave them to people who arrived after us. We finally got one just before we got the check. This is why I say not great for families.

    Although we were unable to get a reservation in the 5:30-7:00 pre-theater range, we did keep our 5:15 reservation time and noticed many empty tables for the entire time we were there. The food was fine, service was fine, and greeters/hostesses were very nice and friendly. This is a really good place for a pre-theater dinner because of its proximity. The decor is sleek and modern, and the restaurant is quite spacious. It is right off Rock Plaza.

    Del Frisco's Grille is a fine place to meet for a casual business lunch - burgers, salads, wraps (standard American fare). I probably wouldn't go here otherwise because I left feeling like the meal was overpriced.
