    A group of us went to Del Friscos on Sat night for a bachelorette party and the experience couldn't have been better! On top of all our food being delicious our waiter brought us all champagne to help celebrate and was very pleasant and helpful. To top it off the staff all signed a congrats card for the bride. We were all impressed all around and will definitely be coming back!

    I've eaten at Several Del Friscos but this experience was absolutely horrible; from the waiter not knowing if any gluten free items were on the menu to the fact that the wait between ordering our food and receiving was one hour and ten minutes.... 1:10 and the GM, who I spoke with personally never came back to follow up!! I will skip the Phoenix location.... A lot of options within walking distance

    First time here for a birthday dinner that included three generations; and the menu had something for everyone. Ribeye, veal meatloaf, chicken schnitzel and a scrumptious hamburger are just a few of the choices the menu has to offer. Their summer special with the big burger, fries and adult milkshake was a hit. Try the coconut cream pie, you won't be disappointed. To say the wine list is comprehensive is an understatement. Chic decor and soft, perfect lighting tops off the experience. Next we will eat on the roof, when it isn't 112 degrees.

    There are SO many amazing choices here. Go with friends who like to share. Before you leave, you will be making plans to return. I chose DFG for my birthday celebration with friends. From my entry to my exit, I was wished a happy birthday. Our server was excellent--attentive but not intrusive. He presented me with a creative hand crafted card with staff signatures that I loved. Unlike many places, I was given my choice of dessert as my "Birthday Cake." I chose the coconut cream pie--yummy and huge! Our meal included deviled eggs appetizer, veal meatloaf & mashed potatoes, chicken schnitzel & noodles, thick tomato basil bisque & grilled cheese with such delights as Gruyere and Mornay sauce inside. GO . . . soon!

    ... and have brunch at Del Frisco's. More importantly, though, wake up in the figurative sense and finally recognize that great brunch can be had at Del Frisco's, not just at (largely undeservedly) more hyped-up restaurants in metro Phoenix. Sadly, word seems not to have gotten out yet about the excellent brunch at Del Frisco's and the convenient location directly across from the Biltmore Fashion Square. (Indeed, an underpass connects the Fashion Square with Del Frisco's, which is located directly underneath the AMC 14 Esplanade on Camelback.) The welcome is friendly and professional; the service is very polite and accommodating; the preparation of the food is excellent; and the menu selection is sufficient to please any taste.

    Service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is good for business lunches. However, my seared tuna salad was extremely bland. The tuna pieces were ok but presented on the side rather than on top (not a great presentation), and the salad itself was just a mound of green without much taste. Was disappointing.

    Wonderful yet again. Sean waited on our very desire so effortlessly that we didn't even notice. Things like refills just appeared! So glad we choose to visit Del Frisco's when in town. All 5 in our party ordered a different meal. ALL agreed that you can't go wrong no mater what you order. Everyone was so satisfied...but we still ordered desert to take home for later. The coconut cake is heavenly.

    My wife and I arrived on time for our reservation and we're seated promptly. The service was attentive and made our visit very enjoyable. The bar had a lot of people and there was an enclosed room with T's and was probably a smoking section. The egg rolls were excellent, my filet was undercooked, but tasted excellent. The dessert sea salt and caramel pudding? was unreal - I haven't had anything that good in a very long time.

    Our 3rd visit for brunch (1st for our friends). Our reservation was completely unnecessary as the restaurant was empty during the 2+ hours we were there. Luckily our friends enjoyed their choices: sangria, chicken and waffles, crab cake benedict. Our impression of the food is that it's hit or miss. Hits: steakhouse salad, chicken fried steak and croque madame, although the portion on the latter is a little skimpy. Misses: burger, red velvet belgian waffle and crab cake benedict (incredibly tiny crab cake and not enough lobster sauce). Our waitress was quite friendly but the acting manager seemed a bit surly, maybe annoyed they were so slow. He took our drink order for a carafe of screwdrivers, we received a carafe of mimosas.

    We first tried Del Frisco's with friends at the Fall restaurant week and loved it, especially the Salted Carmel Pot de Creme dessert only made during restaurant week and returned recently for the restaurant week. The menu is great with a choice for everyone. The dessert we so wanted and waited so long for was AWFUL. The consistency, color and flavor were all wrong. There was no carmel color or taste no salt - just lumpy bland pudding. Other than that, the meal and service were great, a bit rushed with the service for no reason before we were finished with a course, the next came out.

    I really wanted to like Del Frisco's. I had a delicious lunch and fun happy hour there so I suggested it for a birthday family dinner.The flatbread was tasty but very heavy compared to the lighter ones you see other places. The chicken lollipops were forgettable. Perhaps our biggest disappointment was the entree. We don't mind paying $39 for a filet if it is outstanding but these were average and we doubted they were 8 oz. In a world where we are all measuring, weighing, comparing, we have a very good sense of size. These at best were 6 oz. Asking for it to be cut in front of the server was odd. It gives you a weird sense that your mother is standing over you waiting for approval. It was tasteless and unremarkable. We won't go back.

    I have been to Del Frisco's for happy hour many times & have never had a bad experience. I received a message about brunch on Easter checked the menu liked what I saw and reservation for my mother and I. Our reservation was at 1:30 & we arrived at a fairly empty restaurant. We sat on the patio ordered drinks - the White Sangria me & VIP for my mom. As usual the drinks awesome. We ordered food ... I had the Red Velvet Belgian Waffle & my mom got the Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs - Our food arrived & I was completely underwhelmed with the waffles - they were not Red Velvet but more like lightly colored chocolate & the edges of 2 of the waffles were burned. I noticed my mom sawing at her steak because it was overcooked & dry. I was over it!

    I'm a dining snob. My 5 star reviews are few and far between. But Del Frisco's hits on all cylinders. First, it's a great setting. Very handsome decor but still fun and casual. You can dine inside, in the open bar, on the patio or on the roof. The wait staff is attentive but not smothering. Management stopped by to check things out on a couple of occasions. We had the cheesesteak egg roll, knife & fork Caesar salad, pork chop and lemon cake. All were top notch, impeccable flavor and the hot food was served hot. I've always enjoyed dining and shopping in the Biltmore area. Now I have another reason to visit it even more often. Kudos to Del Frisco's!

    We chose this restaurant as a splurge for our first anniversary. Started with the cheese steak appetizer; husband loved it, but wife thought it was on the heavy/greasy side. On to the main course, for which husband had the seared tuna, wife had the scallops; both were delicious. Wait staff was good (one bobble was that we had to make two requests for sweeteners for the iced tea, as there were none on the table and the waiter seemed to forget the first time we asked.) We both would recommend this place for the kind of people who feel comfortable spending $75-$100 for dinner for two.

    I love the lemon cake. It's worth coming here just for dessert, although my meal was excellent. My only complaint is we were seated in a little alcove with just a few tables…great…quiet dinner. NOPE. They seated a party of 8 women next to us. The rest of the evening I couldn't hear conversation at my own table at all. I don't usually mind noisy restaurants but this was ridiculously loud. We couldn't even hear the wait staff ask us about dessert and coffee.

    We had an average meal and service at this restaurant. Compared to the numerous restaurants within a stone's throw of Del Frisco's Grill, you would expect that they would be doing everything possible to make the guest experience exceptional. The food was luke warm when it was delivered. The server vanished for over 15 minutes. This is all with the restaurant only 20% full....on a Saturday evening. Unfortunately, this meal was consistent with the past few times I've been. I remember why we don't come here more often.

    I've been a major Del Friscos supporter after heavily frequenting Del Friscos Double Eagle Steakhouse in Vegas. This was my first time at Del Friscos Grille. Surprised at the low level of service and the low quality of food. My wife and I weren't greeted by a waiter and after 10 minutes I had to get the managers attention. No water, no bread. I had to ask for bread. Then my steak was too salty, way to salty. Definitely not a double eagle joint. Hence "Grille".

    My wife and I tried Del Frisco's for the first time last wk and it will be out last. Our server told us that the place is known for their steaks. Really? I can cook a better steak myself at home. We ordered the Filet Mignon and Shrimp Scampi and our steak was not worth the $57 per person price point. For the record, I don't typically write food reviews. However, I felt compelled to let other diners know to avoid this place at all costs. One last thing, the strangest thing happened to us that I've never experienced before in my 47 years on the planet. When they brought out or steaks our server asked both my wife and I to cut into our steak in front of her to see if it was cooked to order. Huh? Very bizarre. Stick to happy hour!

    I recently took my sweetie here for Valentine's Day. It's a very up beat and professional atmosphere within the Biltmore/Ritz region. The food was a bit on the pricey side, but was well worth it. One of the best steaks I've had in years. The service was excellent. They take pride in getting your order done expeditiously, to your liking and served with a smile. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you are into sports, I noticed the bar has excellent HD screens for your viewing pleasure. I look forward to frequenting this establishment again in the near future.
