Love the entryway! They did a great job with the decorating and the ambiance. Loved visiting and it's just a few blocks away from the White House. Will definitely go back. Thank you!

Amazing! We were celebrating my wife's birthday and had tickets at the Warner Theatre at 7:30. We mistakenly went to the other del Friscos location and were given bad directions, so we were late for our reservation, but we did call to let them know. When we arrived, we were greeted by the hostess who apologized for the bad directions and assured us that we would make our 7:30 show. (We arrived at 6:35). We were seated immediately and again, reassured we would make our show. The waitress took our order and wished my wife a Happy Birthday. We ordered a glass of wine and we were so surprised when the Manager stopped by our table with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne! It was so nice and unexpected! Our dinner was delicious and we left around 7:15 in plenty of time for our show. The service we received was extraordinary and far exceeded our expectation! They made my wife's birthday very special and we will definitely be back!

I've dined at other Del Friscos in the local area and usually had very good service and great dining experience. Our waitress missed the mark at ALL levels of courteous, customer service skills and attention to details. How embarrassing as I had a friend visiting from out of town that wanted to meet for dinner. If I could give a lower rating than star I would solely based on the service. On a positive note the chef did an excellent job with preparing our meal. I would not visit this location again and would not recommend to others. I expect more from spending $300 for a dinner out with friends. Hopefully, the General Manager will review and make the correction necessary in the future.

The salads are healthy which is why i choose Del Friscos grill. Your wait staff is generally stretched thin, but our service on the last visit was below your normal low bar. We waited a long time to order, no one waited for us to check our meat . My salmon was undercooked and the server did not wait for us to check our meat. It took forever to flag another server. Kudos to our waiter that he came over and to your chef who gave me a fresh piece of fish. Also please stop your waiters from pushing appetizers, it is annoying and intrusive. It happens every time i come for dinner, to some extent.

Service was good, but I sent the chicken back for being under-seasoned. Salmon caesar was just OK. Cheesesteak eggrolls are delicious!

My husband’s birthday dinner. There were four of us snd we ordered the scallops, the chicken, the sole, and the stroganoff. I usually order the ahi tacos for an appetizer but forgot to take a photo. Everything was delicious. We managed to share the generous slice of the lemon cake, a molten lava cake and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Fabulous. Service was excellent - attentive without being overly solicitous. We’ll be back for another occasion!

Sorely disappointed. I have been to Del Frisco’s Grille -DC for numerous happy hours but yesterday’s lunch was a grave disappointment. The steak egg rolls appetizer was extremely salty. And with regard to the flatbread pizza - it was ‘unappealing ‘. I unfortunately must admit that I’ve had better from a food truck. I doubt that I will patronize this location again.

Not a good experience! We went for NY's Eve dinner and it was a disappointing experience. My filet had to be sent back to the kitchen three times, after which point I gave up! Asked for a new meal (lemon sole) which was only average. My husband's salmon was only average as well. My daughter had a steak that was overcooked but she didn't want to return it since she was starving. What a sad disappointment -- truly dismayed in Del Frisco's performance that night. Will not return.

Nice location. The first, second, and third tables where host tried to seat us were unacceptable, but we eventually got a good one in the less-than-half full restaurant. Cocktails were good. My partner really liked the ribeye. Both her and my steaks were under-done, but, very wisely, the server asked us to cut the meat when served to judge for ourselves, and we sent them back for a few more minutes. Most steak places don't have the sense to do that. The sweet Ppotato frites were outstanding. And the large coconut cream pie was enough for two people and excellent. Fellow diners were mostly dressed down, even though the spot is at 12th and Penn. It could have been a sports bar in College Park instead of a (possibly) fancy place across from the Trump International Hotel, which looked gorgeous through the window wall of the restaurant. But it did not spoil a very nice dinner.

Went for dinner on New Years Eve prior to seeing a show at the National Theatre. They were having a special Prix Fixe menu for the holiday which included a Champange Toast. Both my date and I were very impressed by all of the courses in taste, selection, and quantity. It made for a wonderful evening, and we’ll definitely keep Del Frisco’s in mind any time we’re in the area.

I arrived as two herds were waiting to be seated - big holiday lunches! I was very pleased to have a table by the kitchen so it was fun watching the comings and goings of the food so I could ask our waitress about them. After watching meals go by I decided on the fish and chips - wow, very good, everything beautifully seasoned and crispy, loved it. My friend had the steak sandwich that she had had recently and loved and she said this was also excellent again, with parmesan fries. The sound level IS "energentic" but it was still fairly easy to have a conversation. Had a great experience and will be back soon!
