    Disappointed
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    We were a little disappointed when we arrived. The Grille was dimly lit and a little cold. There seemed to be no life in the place. Service was welcoming and efficient. The salads were ok, but the lettuce a little brown here and there, and the croutons less than crisp. Immediately we had finished the salads, our steaks arrived. It would have been nice to have been allowed a moment or two between courses. The meat was high quality and well cooked, but over-seasoned. Neither the mashed potato nor the spinach were particularly appetising. The disappointment came with the bill really. We knew we would be paying a good price for our Grille experience. We thought we paid much more than the experience warranted.

    Booked Del Frisco's Grill because Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse is my favorite steak place in NY. Had a table for 6. Sat at the bar for a drink and bartender was super. Got to the table and everything kind of changed. Service was indifferent at best, only offered one drink--waitress never came back to check on refills during a 1 and 1/2 hour meal! Others liked their steaks and seafood or were polite about saying they did. I had a dry, overcooked, lukewarm burger with cold fries. Sides were supposed to be shared but were skimpy at best. It was around 6:00 on a Friday evening and the place was not full, so not sure why the service was so flat. I won't be back.

    We arrived as a party of four and requested a table outside for the kick off to Labor Day. Score! the hostesses were wonderful and oh so accommodating. Adrian, our waiter, took excellent care of us. We all indulged in the Triple Treat special... and, it was MAGNIFICENT. Adrian was wonderful and his back up staff was great. To have a wonderful team looking after us was appreciated. We will be back!

    We stopped in at 6 for an early dinner before a show. The restaurant was fairly empty, so when the hostess tried to seat us at a table in the middle of all the others we politely asked if we could have one on the end or corner. She rolled her eyes and walked back to the stand the check the available tables. Then came back and moved us over one seat. Literally there were tons of open tables and we had a reservation. Ticked me off and I almost walked out. However, luckily we had a friendly server and the food was tasty. We enjoyed our meal so that is why my scores are positive but did want to highlight the rude hostess. Disappointing.

    This restaurant was the perfect place to celebrate my grandmothers 81st birthday. The food was great and the server was very aware of the menu offerings. I appreciated how everyone was very helpful to all the requests of my grandmother. The only thing that I did not like was the fish tacos. They were just not as flavorful as I have had at other places. For dessert the lemon cake was BOMB. I mean I need the recipe! Great server!

    We wanted to dine in the Rockefeller Center area and found Del Frisco's Grille on an internet search. The food was very good and the chef came out to personally ask if our steaks were prepared to order. There were not a lot of tables dining at the time we were there (a Sunday evening around 7 pm) so I thought the service could have been much better. The lighting is very dim in the restaurant so although the ambience is nice, it's really "dark." Given the ala carte prices and our overall bill in excess of $400 for 4 people (2 non drinkers), I would have expected more. We sat inside but they have outdoor dining as well.

    We had an amazing experience at Del Frisco's! We had a reservation and got there early and they sat us right away! The drinks were strong and delicious. We ordered the cheesesteak egg rolls for appetizer and they were mind blowing. Dinner was amazing as well, I definitely recommend ordering your steak oscar style! It was right in Rockefeller plaza and so easy to find and walkable distance from the theater district which we were coming from. We had a great experience and we will be back!

    I ordered the steakhouse salad which I believed to be a pretty safe option given the reputable steakhouse brand. It was the most disgusting salad I've ever had. The steak had absolutely no flavor and the lettuce was so drenched in salad dressing that my dinner companion asked me if the lettuce was old, given the wilted disposition. Our waitress came by and asked how we liked our food, to which I responded with my displeasure albeit in a very polite tone. Instead of taking the hint, she just looked at me and pretended not to hear me. Most high-end restaurant staff would have offered an alternative or comped the item but no, she took my salad away (from which I'd only taken 4 or 5 bites from max) and brought the full bill. Never again!

    I really liked the food and service. The New York Strip Steak was cooked perfectly and the filet mignon was also incredible. As far as appetizers go, the chicken wings and eggrolls were phenomenal as they had a very good sauce.

    The service was just terrible and the bartender was beyond rude as if I was his peasant. Waited for my party (corporate client meeting, therefore, everything was going to be expensed with no limits on spending) at the bar. Waited about 10 minutes before either bartender acknowledged me. When the male bartender acknowledged me he rolled his eyes when I ordered my drink and then when I proceeded to pay, he asked if I wanted to close it out or leave it open. I politely said I am waiting for other people he said "again what don't you understand close it out or leave it open and rolled his eyes." ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Waitress was obnoxious as well.

    On vacation in NYC and wanted a special dinner! Del Frisco's Grille did not disappoint. From the service, to the food, to the wine...simply great! With two teenage girls and waiting for dinner we asked for bread. The waiter said he would bring out some breadsticks. OMG...not just a breadstick but 4 soft, warmed pretzel sticks that were sooo good! The steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. The spare rib stroganoff was deliciously tender and light. Homemade taste! Highly recommend! Something on the menu for everyone!

    I've been to both Del Frisco's and Del Frisco's Grille. I love both. DFG is a more relaxed atmosphere. I recommend for after work meetings with colleagues. lunch meetings, family gathering, special events. This last visit was pre-broadway show with my 6yr old daughter. We had a blast. My daughter ordered a steak. The chef came out to ensure she was happy with the doneness of the steak. I've also gone with my 20 yr old son and he's gone with his friends. It is truly a good time. Enjoy.

    It was good, but not great. It's "brother" the Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse is great. If you are booking here thinking it will be similar to the Double Eagle, you have another think coming. The steaks may be the same (are they really?) but the preparations certainly are not. The seasoning was heavy-handed, and the outside of my steak went beyond sear to char. Not bad, but not great. I had the ribeye and my wife had chicken. Both were good. You can get better value elsewhere.

    We had a great time at this restaurant. The steak was incredible, and we each had a topper, I had the Oscar style, and my guest had the port wine reduction, both amazing!! We also had the Mac and Cheese which was by far the best I have ever had. Prices are very expensive, but also, very common for New York City.

    Like eating on the side of the New Jersey turnpike. Service was great, apps were great. They seem unsure about how to cook a steak. I ordered a steak medium and it came out one step above raw. Even the college cook at my neighborhood Outback knows how to cook a steak. Go sit at the bar and get cheesesteak egg rolls. They were fantastic.

    We so enjoyed this resturant since we luckily got a great outdoor table at their fun Rockefeller center area. They serve great food especially since they put out new delicious grilled beef options which we were so happy to share as a couple. They also had great, friendly service and our timing was perfect since we went to a wonderul Broadway show after.

    This was my second time to come to Del Frisco Grille. I was in NYC last year and ate there after a play. It was absolutely outstanding. One of the best steaks I have ever had. This time it was a let down. The soup was lukewarm and the special butter I ordered for my steak didn't even melt on the steak. Service however was very good. Loved out waiter.

    I have eaten t Del Frisco's on many occasions but did not realize (on opentable.com) they did not specify they had a sister restaurant in NYC. However the reservationist/manager was very accommodating and seated us outside which was a welcome change . We explained we were going to the theater at 7PM and they promptly took our order and served us in record time. Started with a (6) shrimp cocktail. They were huge and cooked perfectly. The big bone in ribeye (my 10 year old son) was accompanied by mashed potatoes & lobster macaroni & cheese. The wine list is extensive and enjoyed a bottle of Darioush. I strongly suggest you try the outside dining after 5PM. Much quieter and the weather cools off. Also, the surrounding views - vintage NYC.

    Del Frisco's Grille has an annoying policy of not seating tables until the whole group is present. While used to time the order properly for the kitchen, creates a bottle neck at the front door of people standing around and crowding the front desk. When we arrived for our 1:00 pm reservation the table was not ready and we stood in the crowded space for ten minutes.

    What a great meal! A party of 9 of us were there, and the service was top-notch, just like the food. All of the steaks were cooked to perfection, and my wife could not stop raving about the port/foie gras butter. The lamb burger was exceptional, as was the flatbread. The only disappointment was the bread pudding, which was just okay. We will be recommending this restaurant to all as a great place within the area, and frankly, New York City!

    I have eaten here three or four times in the last year. Good drink and menu selections including an unusual rye whiskey. Disappointed to have entrées arrive too soon after the salads were served and servers were a little lacking in timely contacts. Kind of a quiet early Friday evening and servers and busers were screwing around instead of doing their jobs.
