Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse - DC
Book your next event with us
My husband had been to your Fort Worth location and said it was the best meal of his life, so when we saw one in DC, he was anxious for me to try it. We were celebrating 9 years last night.
We were checked in quickly and sat within the bar area along the window, from here we waited and waited for someone to acknowledge us, briefly stop over, say hello, anything. We weren’t given a wine menu so we perused the dinner menu. At this point my husband went to the host stand to ask who was serving us..we then saw the host go to 2 different wait staff and ask them who was taking our table, neither of them wanted us, and we knew it because we could see their reactions. Keep in mind, from what we saw, this place was not busy, there were people on the patio but not a crazy amount. Tables were open in the bar and it was an embarrassment the way it was being handled.
We threw our napkins on the table and were getting up to leave and go back to RPM Italian to eat there when a waitress came over and asked our water and drink order, we still haven’t seen a wine list.
From here it was an exchange of awkwardness from the waitress as she seemed rushed/hurried and very obviously put out that she had to serve us.
Our check for us two was over $200, it was not a cheap night and we are not cheap people, but I will say, her tip reflected our experience including her service.
Had to wait for 45 minutes for a seat at the bar. The bar service was crap apparently due to a shift change. My steak was tough, and poorly cooked. The manager stood with his back to bar for about 40 minutes talking to a celebrity. He was then smug and condescending. While he did fix the steak with a new one, he did nothing else to make it right. The couple next to me whom also complained about the service, had all their drinks comped, and received a free dessert.
Very negative experience.
Dreadful experience. I hope they're able to improve the service and food quality. I cannot recommend.
I’ve been to this restaurant a number of times but this time a large group was also being served and we had to wait a ridiculous length of time for our food. Our waitress was great about keeping us informed but our reservation was for 6:30 and we didn’t get out of the restaurant until after 9:00. I think they need to work on staffing when they have a large group.
Fabulous evening! They fit us in, and the food and service was fantastic! Highly recommend.
We love Del Frisco’s for the great food and great service staff. While service of meals can take time, we enjoyed the atmosphere, anyway why rush perfection. Titus our waiter was awesome and such a great host to us. Will ask for him by name next adventure out and highly recommend you ask for him if dining here.
Everything was great as usual. I can't say enough about how good the food is. The carpaccio was excellent and the steaks were perfectly prepared. The gooey butter cake is always the best. Umar's service can't be beat.
The food was good but the service was poor. The hostess did not seem to be engaged with us and didn't seem to follow up for service. We waited almost an hour for the food on a Sunday early afternoon.
Disappointed by a couple of things. Todd the GM seems to be a great leader, and personally spoke to me about everything. Which is why I have 5 star overall. Thanks Todd.
So it’s clear that the new management team is not as strong as the previous one. Our server disappeared several times. The bathroom was unkept. We were double charged for items. It was really unfortunate because the service was just lacking. The food was still decent enough.
Loved everything about it
well got the waygu tasting but was not told which steak was from which location by the person who brought my meal out. But the meal was good, now i was told to come to Del Frisco's because my friend knows i go to Ruth's Chris. And the one visit hasn't changed me.
Disappointing I really want to make del Frisco's my DC steakhouse but this location is so all over the board with service that it spoils pretty much every other visit and last night was another bad night. My wife who actually is more forgiving about service fails said she would never come back and I think she is right
we had an excellent waiter and as usual the food was very good
What a lovely dinner! The service was fantastic, the food delicious and the atmosphere beautiful. When we were too cold, they graciously moved us to a warm table. All wine recommendations were terrific and their version of surf and turf was Devine!
The waiter was very slow, not friendly and not attentive at all to our needs. He never told us his name and and forgot several items that we order. We had to remind him several occasions to bring us water and our desert. The food took forever for him to bring to the table. Overall, I would not dine with the waiter we had again. He didn’t make our first time experience friends at all. He seemed distracted and too busy to properly serve us.
Love everything!! Side car to the double eagle rib eye
My food never came out . Guest that was sat after me received all their entree before me.
Party of 6 we were celebrating my brother and sister-in-law’s 20th wedding anniversary! The manager, staff, service and food were all outstanding! I’m looking forward to my next visit.
From the front desk, to our server Jim, our experience at Del Frisco Washington DC was amazing. It was my dinner birthday and everyone made it special (especially with the free dessert at the end of our meal!).
Highly recommend Del Frisco!
Amazing dry aged filet and wine selection. Service was impeccable.
I have been many times but last time found the chicken dish (business lunch), gamey, not cooked through etc. So, I did not enjoy my meal and I had a guest with me so not inexpensive.
Have been to Del Frisco’s numerous times while in DC w clients. Have always had a wonderful experience... food, service, ambiance etc. Will never return after Tue’s deplorable experience. They failed on every level. And didn’t seem to care. Noticeable by how empty the place was compared to the past. New management perhaps?? Ugh!
Excellent service, food, and ambiance. I definitely recommend Del Frisco’s for special occasions.
We were just there last week for Restaurant Week and enjoyed it so much we came back to celebrate my partner's birthday. Everything, from the food to the service, was even better. I started with the carpaccio. It was melt in your mouth tender, and very flavorful. The prime ribeye was perfectly seasoned as was my partner's filet. The waiter (who was tge same from last week) was very helpful and friendly. The dessert was this butter cake with a caramel sauce and butter pecan ice cream that will change your life. I'm going to have to step up my workout routine because I will be back many times.
Jason was considerate of our purpose of dining and created a wonderful dining experience for my friends and I.
Despite our booking, we were told to wait for a table. So why encourage people to make reservations. And there was an empty table reserved. The JC guy was just not helping as he couldn’t explain the difference between our booking and that the table reserved
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!! Best Steakhouse in DC hands down
Excellent food and great service.
We were there for restaurant week. Service was so slow. It took 30 mins to order bottle of wine and 45 mins for food. I feel like they are not up to decent steakhouse anymore.
Had to wait 35 minutes to get seated even with a reservation. Stuck in the middle of a noisy room with other people's chair back to back with us. Couldn't hear our own conversation. Couldn't get served drinks. Asked sommelier for a non expensive wine so he recommended a bottle for $250. Never got bread until meal was finished. Asked for steak to be be cooked medium and it came raw in center. Won't go back
Waiter was HORRIBLE
This is one of my favorite restaurants. However, this past visit we were seated in a booth right next to the staircase and the amount of people hovering around the table was unfortunate. I believe because of the people standing by us that are waitress was less inclined to check on our table. Overall this was disappointing for a meal I very much looked forward to going too.
Our waiter was excellent! Food was perfect! We will definitely be back!
Dined here during restuarant week in D.C. Our server Will was amazing he made our first-time dining experience great! We were celebrating Mom's birthday and they brought out a special birthday dessert. The butter cake was divine.
We came to celebrate two birthdays in our group and for the delicious options offered for restaurant week. We had come here previously and had a great experience so it was the perfect place to come back. Despite some issues with our food coming out late and a few upgrades missing from some of the entrees it was still a good experience. The truffle butter king crab is delicious as well as the lobster Mac and Cheese.
Service was terrible that I wouldn’t go back. The waiter had an attitude and the food wasn’t up to par.
Service was very Great. The Waiter was very helpful in helping decide what we wanted to order.
Everything was lovely. The staff was perfect. We will return for our anniversary!
They are great in every aspect, food and service. Top notch steakhouse in DC!
