What a mess this place is. Order wrong, wine doesn’t show up with the meal and average steak for the price. Never going back.

Fish tacos with salad for lunch were delicious! Service was a little slow in the bar area but it was crowded for weekday lunch rush.

Having visited Del Frisco’s in NY and DC in the past year and both times having ordered the kale/brussel sprouts salad i was looking forward to it again. What a disappointment! It arrived looking different. I realized it was missing brussel sprouts. It was smaller. And the taste didn’t “pop/say wow”. Asking waitress she said she would ask the cook. She came back saying something like sorry you aren’t pleased but we will give you a free dessert. Note: we were trying to eat healthy salads. A manager came by and we pointed out no brussel sprouts. He went to kitchen and came back holding a plastic bag sample saying they put 2 ounces of brussel sprouts. I could see them thru the bottom of the bag. I FINALLY could see them hidden in my salad. It still boggled my mind that the salad was sooooooo different. I looked at the menu when i got back to hotel. They had used baby argula instead of kale. So a tart salad with a sweet dressing was NOT what i got thus it didn’t “pop”.

Booked a last minute reservation here for the last day of restaurant week. I was seated early because the restaurant was basically empty. I waited 10 mins just for a server, we ordered drinks and 30 mins later all we had was water. They brought out our starter finally and still no drinks. 15 mins later we decide to leave.

I was surprised to find out that a restaurant of this caliber did not have valet parking, the closest parking garage was about a block away and that’s a long walk when you’re dressed up walking in high heels. My second surprised with how the service personnel were dressed, there were no tablecloth on the table, and customers came in dressed less than Desirable for an evening night out dinner. The noise level was that of a bar, so disappointing. Some of the girls working as servers had skirts on that literally came just below their hips and the top on their panty hose were showing.

Service was not good. We had to ask for our drinks several times and first course came out before our first drink came out as well as our dinner came out before the bottle of wine we requested. I asked for an extra dressing several times and never got it so ended up eating my salad as it was. Wasn’t that busy so not sure why service was so poor.

First time visit. Good pre-show meal. Wine by the glass selection was varied and good. 3 shared hors d’oeuvres were tasty and much more than enough for two. Service was excellent. Will skip right to a steak dinner for my next visit.

Food was excellent. Service, while pleasant, was horrible. It took us 40 minutes for our server to come over and take our drink order.... and it was not busy!
Great place but if we were in a rush would have been intolerable

Always great food and service. It does get a bit loud around the bar area, but the you can also watch the game which is a plus for sports fans. They have several televisions tuned to different sporting events.
They have added a great a hot bread with entree. The steaks are amazing as you would expect.

I have not been in this location in a while. It was Immaculate, like I remember when it opened. I was greeted byAnya who was very kind and polite. I had the opportunity to work with both Clark and Eddie. They were AWESOME! The best of all (I know you think its the food, which is always amazing) was the General Manager Kerry, wow, where to start. I can tell she really runs a tight ship in a great way. She was so professional and genuine. I will start coming back to this location as I did when I first started dining at this location. She is a great addition to the DelFriscos Grille. Thank you!

Overall happy with our experience. Location was great, as was the food. It’s a fun atmosphere, but with that comes a fair amount of noise. Only complaint was our server: I’m not sure if they were short-staffed that night, but our server was not very good. But I would still go back.

Major letdown versus my experiences at other DFGs (Brookfield & Midtown NYC/Houston/Atlanta). Steak was filled with fat, no server came out to inquire about meat like other locations. Stale draft beer and wine. Tables were bused like like a 24-hour diner (being dumped in to large bins in front of customers several times). No celebratory items on New Years menu....

I visited Del Frisco Grille on NYE for dinner. The ambiance was great however, I felt that the service was a bit slow but, it was NYE. The food was great and well worth the cost of the prix fixe menu. The filet duo was absolutely delicious and tender.

Low stars due to wife's salad coming out with blue cheese crumbles (pregnant - can't have) and my filet coming out medium instead of medium rare. I cooked myself a steak last night and became rather annoyed that I cooked mine perfectly and paid you $40 to have it cooked wrong at the restaurant. Server was good but the food kinda killed the review.
