    If you are looking for a steakhouse that isn't too pretentious this is the place. I've been here a couple of times and the steaks were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Try the truffled mac and cheese side dish, it is delicious.

    I came here thinking it was like other steak houses. The menu is not centered around steak which I liked. Lots of different choices. We did have steak which was great. The sides were okay. Dessert was very good. The atmosphere was surely more casual and touristy. Being that it was across from Rock Center it seems best to be a lunch or after work spot. On a Saturday night they were closing up by 11:30??? Not what you expect in NYC. People told us it was so expensive. I think it was priced the same as any other upscale restaurant. Not really a date place.

    Steaks and sides were terrific. We had more managers visit us than visits by waitress when restaurant was not entirely full. Bread plates came with salad but no offer of bread. When requested, we were told pretzel bread was made to order; it came long after salad in middle of meal. Decaf coffee was lukewarm; waitress not very attentive. Took too long to get bill. For the cost I did not expect this level of service.

    From the greeting, to the service, to the food, this restaurant surpassed expectations. Especially scrumptious was the dessert, a cheese cake topped with creme brulee, which was one of the day's specials. Steak was cooked to perfections. Expect to spend, but worth it.

    I dined with my sister for lunch on a Sunday. This is in Rockefeller Center which is why I noted 'scenic view'. We didn't check out the wine list but I'm sure it has some good choices. We ordered all apps so we could try a large variety of things. Loved the brussel sprout flat bread, corn chowder, cheesesteak eggrolls, and lemon cake. This was not my first time here. I'd return. The table next to use ordere a steakwhich looked amazing! This is a go-to place if we are in the RC area. Last but not least, our server was Alex, and she was fantastic. She was a definite plus to our dining experience, which was great because my sister had never been to RC before or this restaurant. Thanks DF!!

    My friend and I had a phenomenal experience Friday night. The ambiance was cool and sexy, while also being warm and comfortable. Every person we came in contact with made us feel very welcome, and the filet was so tender and lean, AND juicy and flavorful. I will going back for the tuna tacos and the truffle mac and cheese...WOW! Kristen helped us get seated, Peter was our attentive waiter, Nick welcomed us at the front, and when I forgot my flowers and we came back to get them, the beautiful hostess ran and got them right away. The nutella bread pudding was RIDICULOUS! It was refreshing to have such great hospitality AND really good food. I will be back and I am telling my friends to go too.

    We had a wonderful experience at Del Frisco Grill. The staff went out of their way to make a 10 year olds birthday very special. She loved the truffle Mac & Cheese, which arrived with 10 growing candles! All of us enjoyed the food, great combinations of flavors, and would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Great location, too.

    Great spot in Rockefeller Center. Pricey so I would only go here for a special occasion but it was the best steak I've ever had. The truffle mac n cheese was delicious and the veal meatloaf also hit the spot. Good portions. The service was spectacular. Waiters Adrian and Lauren were great and the manager, Daniele, congratulated us on our engagement and treated us to champagne. It was a perfect evening and I'm still telling people about the great meal.

    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.

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 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!
