  • "I dined here with a friend for dinner. The waitress was really nice, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I got a steak, and it was delicious! My friend was satisfied with his meal as well. If you dine here, be sure to the cheese steak appetizers - they were REALLY good! The ambiance was nice as well. I would definitely consider returning here to eat!"

  • "I have been here three times and must say the service is so very good. Everyone is very conscientious of your experience. Each time we have had a manager come up to us and talk. Food is very good, drinks are great. Energy level is great. It's a fun place to visit."

We both actually got the fried chicken sandwich that was just amazing, so good that i got a take out order the following day. The staff is friendly and nice and the overall experience was great."

  • "I've been to the double eagle steakhouse in Manhattan so my expectations were high. Did not disappoint! My filet was excellent as were the potatoes. They had a great Malbec and dessert was coconut cream pie that was one of the best ever. ALL ASPECTS OF THE SERVICE WERE PHENOMENAL. We were visited by manager and sommelier in a comfortable and not overbearing way and our waiter couldn't have been better! It was right on PCH so we looked out at the ocean with a great view. It was classy yet casual and comfortable. They treated us great and were very welcoming when I called asking about the dress code since we came down from Universal Studios. I can't recommend highly enough!"

  • "The entire experience here was great. From the bartender, to the hostesses, to the waitress was on point. The food was really good too. We had the artichoke appetizer, veggie burger, and the roasted chicken. All of it was great. The chicken was deboned as much as a half chicken can be but was not dried out at all. The artichoke appetizer was great too. I didn't try the veggie burger but heard it was very good. The drinks were also very good. I HIGHLY suggest the pineapple fused vodka. Amazing and probably my favorite drink now. I'll definitely be back!"

  • "I love the outside patio seating at this place – across from the ocean and great people-watching. Although I experienced a disappointment with the timing of my meal (salad came out at the same time as steak), I definitely would return to try more dishes. The deviled eggs were amazing and the pesto chicken flatbread was heaven. As mentioned, the timing of food wasn't well planned – appetizers came out super quick, but then there was a long wait and our salads arrived along side the steak leaving it difficult to enjoy it all. Everyone loved the potato cake that came with the steaks and great reviews on the prime beef short rib stroganoff. Service was friendly, but not well-timed and not to the standard one would expect from a Del Frisco's."

  • "I came here for my sister's 19th birthday and was so happy with the food and service all around. Great waitress (I wish I remembered her name!) and it was so sweet that they gave my sister a signed card from the staff, and a complementary slice of cake with a candle. The food itself was great, and so were the drinks. would definitely recommend."

  • "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!"

  • "The foood was wonderful and the waiter was very nice. However, it took a while to get water and get a drink order right away."

  • "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."

  • "Steak was the best ever. Waiters, Greeters and Managers tried really hard to satisfy. Well done! Great valet parking, a must for the location. Outstanding spot for people watching. My family loved the food and the experience. Music was too loud. I loved it but my wife didn't."

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,"
