  • "This was a last second booking and I'm glad we did. Took the kids and at dest thought it might have been a bad idea but everyone in the restaurant made us feel welcomed. Our waiter was awesome and the food was great. They had a live band and we were able to sit outdoors on the patio. I recommended."

  • "our food took an extremely long time to come.....over 40 minutes. once it arrived, only two of the 3 meals came. the third meal came out 10 minutes later. the staff apologized numerous times and ended up comping the late meal. The staff was very attentive and I think we just ordered an item that took too long to cook."

  • "Brought friends from the desert, and requested a booth . Everyone enjoyed their dinner . I ordered oysters, a special ,on the menu. They were large and plump- a little dry. Cocktail sauce was not spicy enough even with white horseradish. Salads and other main dishes were great. We will come back again soon. Our waiter was outstanding!"

  • "The 815 pm reservation did not happen, we were seated at 841 pm only after I contacted the host and expressed my feelings because the host sat to parties of 4 that arrived after we did. My girlfriend ordered the filet (butterfly) medium well done and I ordered ribeye rare. The meal came out at 925 pm which my girlfriend steak was not butterflied and was extremely rare. The waitress took my girlfriends steak back and the cook cut same steak in half (not Butterfly) and recooked same steak (this is a no no in fine dining). The waitress brings my girlfriends steak back at 942 pm at which by now my steak is ice cold. The manager was told about the occurrence and his statement was " HERE AT DEL FRISCO'S we always under cook our steaks". So why"

  • "Dined twice at this place now, which is new to us being visitors. Extremely friendly and welcoming host (unfortunately rare in Santa Monica). Great menu, and vast winelist. Very attentive and friendly waiter. Atmosphere is relaxed, in modern contemporary settings. Food cooked to perfection - best steak we had in a long time! Both food and service exceeded our expectations by far. It clearly shines through, that this place is not just a great restaurant, but also a great place to Work. Probably the most friendly and smiling staff in any restaurant we have been visiting for a long time. And most definately in Santa Monica. Thanks for a great evening!"

  • "This report card gets straight A's for ambiance, service and food. I was treated to a Father's Day feast. The New York Strip was great. I ordered it medium rare. Upon receiving the steak, I was requested to cut it open to see it it was grilled to my satisfaction. I thought it needed just another tweak of heat and they practically ran it back asap. Impressive. The plating is top shelf, i.e. for my heirloom tomatoes buratta. My son had the truffled mac & cheese that is, quite frankly, sinful. For desert, lemon cake ... spongy moist and tart perfection. High window walls surround the interior affording sunset views of Santa Monica Bay at the ramp to Santa Monica Pier."

I love dessert and they have a Nutella bread pudding to die for. We live in New York and there is one there that we never tried. We will definitely go now!"

  • "This was our first time at a Del Friscos Grille. We have been to the Del Friscos full restaurant in Boston, NYC, and Dallas. The Santa Monica location did not disappoint. The service and quality of the food is on a par with the full Del Frisco's."

  • "If you're looking for a Oceanside tourist trap with a side of nightlife bar noise then this your spot. It's so loud you can't think, the drinks are up drinkable and the food is nothing to recall. We cancelled our order after receiving the first round and a few appetizers and went down to BOA and had an incredible meal. I wouldn't recommend Del Frisco's unless you feel like being extremely disappointed with a meal that would have cost you the same just down the street. Bring your ear plugs and a mega phone to talk,"

  • "I took my parents and friends here for my father's 87th birthday. The entire staff was so friendly and accommodating, unlike anything I have seen in years. The service was impeccable, the food was soooo tasty, and they topped it off with desserts worth expanding you waistline for. One of the managers, David, packed up a few extra pieces of the lemon cake for a late night/early morning snack--this dessert is on the menu in heaven. Our waitress was nice, thoughtful, attentive and made my parents feel very special. I have always liked Del Frisco's in other cities around the country, and I am glad we have this wonderful addition gracing the restaurant scene in Santa Monica. What are you waiting for--make your reservation."

  • "Great service, very good food, and very nice ambiance. The restaurant feels very open and spacious. The only issue I had was that there were some overly-loud folks at the bar with no regard for the other patrons. Noisy I wouldn't mind, but these people were over the line."

  • "Let me start here: I love the place. I had great group / team dinner experiences. Last night, I tried a more romantic dinner...and got a different experience. Our waiter was great, personable, knowledgeable, and honest. We loved that. Food was great, exactly as expected. We love that. However, sitting in the "main dining room" made us feel like we were in more of a high end diner, than in a 3 star steak restaurant...As a result, it was not as nice of a "date night" experience, and more of a normal evening dinner. "

I called and they told me not to worry...our table would be ready. We were 40 minutes late and were still seated right away. The eggs benedit was wonderful...perfectly prepared and the chicken fried steak was just fabulous. It was very busy but did not feel crowded. I loved every second. Our waiter was just great. I can't wait to return. It was very,very special."

  • "Del Frisco's in Las Vegas is one of my favorite steak houses in the world. With the high level of service and quality of food, I was totally let down. I felt like i was going to a chain, it took forever to get our food and then when we got it, everything was wrong. Sent it back and then waited a long time to get my food again. Not a good experience, would not go back. What a disgrace to the Del Frsico's name, what a shame."

  • "The staff was very friendly but couldn't get it right for our table. Appetizer came very late and while eating it, our dinner came at the same time. We asked it to be brought out later and fresh. When dinners came the steak sandwich was dry and we asked for a different entree. It took such a long time that the manager apologized and asked if we wanted it to go which by that time everyone else was finished with dinner. We waited for take out containers that never came until asked again. Then the waiter came with our bill without asking us about dessert or coffee. It was a good thing we we had a good time in spite of all the mishaps. The management apologized profusely and ended up picking up the tab which was appreciated."

  • "We loved our waitress Kelly...she was SOOO attentive, full of information about the menu and what was in each dish. We ended up ordering the Shaved Beef and two Cheeseburgers (the bomb). What a great burger...better than Umami Burgers! Love the cheese and the two patties and the soft bun. Delish! Kelly deserves a raise...she is an asset to your company. PS We sat at the last booth near the line and one of the line cooks at the end bent down and stuffed his face with something and then came up chewing. Don't they get breaks to eat? It was rather off-putting to see him eating and then start cooking again. Wash your hands bud!"
