Our sever wasn’t the best. No personality at all. I’m not sure if it was because we were African American and he had bad experience dealing with African Americans before. We all felt like he just didn’t give us that good energy. We tip him in cash. Also I think when he came with the bill he stated did you guys all want separate checks? as if we never had or ate out at a fine dining place. We know that most places will not split the checks. We said no, it’s going on one debit card sir. It’s all about how you present things to others. The food was great. The sever name was Evan.

One of the best meals I’ve had my entire life. Every bite was incredible. I offered the chef free room and board at my house lol. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about every dish. His suggestions were spot on. Thank you Eric.

The experience was unbeatable! My spouse and I both had steaks that were cooked to perfection & the lobster macaroni was to die for. This place is great for date night or business dinners. The wine selection was phenomenal. Would recommend people try here if in Chicago.

Restaurant was like a ghost land yet the service was painfully slow.

The food also came out slowly.

My steak was very tough and very chewy.

This location is very undeserving of the great reputation of the Del Frisco’s name.

We had several issues with the experience. 1st was we had our steaks brought out at different times which led to one person in our group eating his steak alone for 7 minutes. Also one of our sides was cold. 2nd one of the coffee mugs we had at the end of the meal had lipstick stains on the cup. Obviously the person running the kitchen lacks attention to detail....however the wait staff and manger were awesome and apologized for the inconvenience replaced the cold side and brought an extra one for free. The food was really good too. I’m sad to see such good food and service go to wasted with a poorly run kitchen. Also maybe could turn the light up a little more in the restaurant.

Enjoyed a birthday dinner with another couple and had a wonderful time. The other couple was blown away by the quality of the steaks. They commented that they had dined at Ruth’s Chris a couple times recently and we’re getting disappointed in the quality of the steaks they received. They thoroughly enjoyed their Del Frisco steaks.
Appetizers and deserts were delicious as well

While I've gone there many times, this was not their best showing. When we arrived, the host was starting to check us in (we had an Open Table reservation), then a manager interrupted us and started asking about other customers were seated. After that, we were put at a table by us server's station in the back corner. We were dressed for a nice dinner, there were other tables open. Where they trying to hide the gays?
Then there was the breeze from the HVAC the entire meal.
It will be a long time before I go back. There are so many other non-chain steakhouses in Chicago, Del Frisco's won't even notice that I don't go back.
The food was nice, the service was really good, but the first impression just sullied the evening.

Loved the food and Charley made it a great experience! Crazy huge wine collection - reminded me of Aureole in Vegas - but with MORE wine. The atmosphere was great, but as you know - the dimmer the lights, the higher the price. For a date night, well worth it!!!

Just friends getting together. Food and wine were great, the service was good (not great). My biggest complaint is that the place was half empty and it took forever to get drinks. I understand they actually go and get win from a storage area and there is a volumes list so there is a little hunting to be done, but, i would expect they would be prepared for that regardless of how busy the place is or isn't. I'd give it an 8/10, and would definitely go back, but its more of a business atmosphere.

Absolutely horrible!

Five of us come to eat there on a Thursday evening, i looked at other restaurants first but they were all booked solid with nothing available between 5-9. Friscos had all times available. We soon found out why.
We were seated next to an elongated table of about 12 people. From the time we sat down these people were literally screaming vulgarities at the top of their voices, high pitched whistles, pounding on the table, etc., all to the point that we could not talk at our table. The adjacent tables kept looking at the noise makers and shaking their heads in disgust. Meanwhile the restaurant staff kept bringing them more drinks which and never admonished them on their vulgar disruptive yelling and screaming. No matter how loud they whistled, screamed and swore, the restaurant staff kept waiting on them with smiles on their faces.
After we were through with dinner someone who identified himself as the manager came to our table and apologized for the miserable time we had at the restaurant.
As for food and service, it was not worth the what they charge.
Needless to say i would wait in line to eat st one of the better restaurants in the area or go without eating before i went back to this place,

For this price the service was terrible, clients ran out of water, wine, slow service. Didn’t respect my wishes of taking care of my clients first. If I have to do all this, I won’t be back. Nice place, food really good, but service killed it.

I met my friend here for an early dinner. This was his first time here since he moved to Chicago.
Everything was going well until, toward the end of his meal, he had not one, but three bones from his fish
in as many bites. The manager did apologize and remove the main course from our bill, but it was an unfortunate first experience for him.
