We meant to book at the other Del Friscos in City Center but found ourselves at this more casual venue. The server was extremely friendly and attentive. I received a birthday card and dessert and that was super sweet. Our food was brought out in a timely fashion and we would return another time with friends!

The food and ambiance were wonderful but the service was abysmal. It took forever to even order a drink and then a kind waiter felt badly that our waitress was not waiting on us so he took our order, and the food arrived before the drink! She should not be a waitress. But I would go back and be sure she did not wait on us!

Good service and great food. Due to the close proximity to two theaters, the staff was mindful of the timing and everything moved quickly. Our food was brought out promptly and everything was delicious. I would definitely return.

I love Del Frisco's Grill! I have eaten there several times a year and it never disappoints! From the front door, I feel cared for even when they are terribly busy. The service and food are wonderful! I will be back!

Del Frisco’s did not disappoint! Warm and relaxing atmosphere, a great place for a date night. Our server was so attentive and delightful. The menu selection was somewhat limited, we ordered the Salmon and Fillet Mignon which was okay. We really enjoyed the White Sangria.

First of all, our server, Raven, was excellent. Not only did she make a fantastic drink recommendation but she was friendly and knowledgeable and went out of her way to "wow" us with service above and beyond.

Our group shared a bunch of items to make up our meal. Here's the rundown. The cheesesteak eggrolls were pretty tasty (pricy for what you get but delicious). I would definitely skip the guac & chips. Lacked flavor and a really small serving (not that I minded since it wasn't particularly good). The tomato and burrata salad was delightful - from the tomatoes to the flavorful dressing to the creamy burrata, it was all around tasty goodness. The mushroom flatbread tasted good but the crust was tough and so chewy you couldn't cut it with a knife or bite into it without looking like a caveman. A+ for flavor but D+ for texture. Finally the truffle mac & cheese was quite good.

I tried 2 different cocktails and both were excellent - the VIP martini and the pomegranate margarita, neither on the sugary sickly sweet side, just right.

This restaurant is close to National Theater so it was an easy location to have dinner & drinks before the show.

Went for a pre-theater quick meal. Seated quickly, great service and the filet burger and caesar salad were very good. It's big and was very noisy by the bar but we asked to be seated in a quieter area and it was fine.

Went here on a Friday night with the husband, we are regulars at Double Eagle and just happened to be down by the White House so figured we would try this location out. We came in around 6 for an early dinner and the place was relatively empty compared to other locations at that time.

We are younger so of course they put us right by the server station and door which did't really bother us, but service was very subpar. We never got a wine list, nor did we ever get bread, and it seemed a little understaffed, we did't see any managers or sommeliers walking around like the Double Eagle, as a wine lover I always enjoy talking to someone else about their offerings and getting their recommendations. I came in knowing this is a little more casual though and most people around us looked like they were just eating burgers and sandwiches so maybe they don't regularly keep a sommelier on staff.

They have less options but the steak was good and came out at the temperate requested, it went well with the bottle we selected, sides came out cold though. So we had some good and some bad, overall I think we'll stay away from this location and just go to the less touristy location in City Center.

The food and service was very nice, but the front desk welcome was lacking. We arrived a little before noon and were told there were no tables without a reservation, but we were welcome to eat at the bar. Because it was a business lunch, we needed a table. The woman at the desk was a bit rude and did not offer any alternatives. I stepped back and made a 1230 reservation using Open Table. Our third guest arrived and we were taken to a table by 1220 by another host.
It was just unnecessary rudeness at the beginning of a pleasant meal.
I will make a reservation in the future but there was no need for the rudeness

Hostess not available to greet us, cleaning tables. Waiters not professional. Maybe good for fast food. Ask to give us time for our cocktails but kept returning for our order. The main route to the restrooms in living the steps and floor had food on the floor. The tables were not cleaned well and the restrooms were not clean.

Everything was very good, food, service, ambiance until the waiter (or whoever types the bill) tried to charge us for a very expensive bottle of wine that we did not order.
That's enough for me not to trust this restaurant and never go back there.

The steak salad was delicious -- all 5 of us had it and each was cooked exactly as we requested. We also had dessert. 5 desserts were offered - we ordered all 5 and shared them. Excellent. Lemon cake was a wee bit dry -- a little more frosting and filling would easily fix. The molten Lava cake -- excellent. The break pudding, Nutella was not strong but it was delicious. Same for the Carmel pudding -- we rated it as the likely best. We had a very nice , quiet corner booth, very roomy. Our server was excellent, patient and prompt.

This was my third dinner at Del Frisco's. All have been excellent. This time I dined with my aged parents before taking them to a concert at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History. I ordered the seared scallops with cheese polenta, which was delicious. The service was prompt and friendly but never overbearing. It's a lovely space, and on this occasion was quiet but we were very early so the place was nearly empty.

Came to celebrate my bf's birthday. It was quiet & not too busy for a Friday night, so no complaints there. The apps were sooooo good especially the cheesesteak egg rolls. It's a must order. Ordered the NY strip, parmesean frites & brocollini... only thing somewhat "negative" I can say about the food was that it was really salty (only able to note that because I personally don't cook with salt). But other than that it was soooo good. My bf got the truffle mac & cheese. Wish I got it for myself... the white sangria was "cute & sweet" like I opted for via our server. Overall, the experience was great.

Went for dinner prior to a show at the Warner Theater. Very conveniently located for the theater. The food was certainly ok. Nothing to write home about, but tasty enough. It was relatively loud, even away from the bar area. Definitely have to sit next to your dinner mate, not across the table. The service was at a snail's pace. So so slow. We picked this restaurant because there was a specific dessert on the menu that we wanted to try. By the time we got orders taken and food delivered/eaten, there was no time left to stay for dessert. We had to rush from the restaurant to make it to the theater on time. Overall, we'll go somewhere else next time we go to the Warner.

Perfection! Food, service, decor, ambience - all perfect. My Steakhouse Salad was so yummy that when we came out of our show at Warner Theatre and I said to my husband, "Let's go back and do that dinner again," I was only half kidding. And my husband couldn't stop raving about his burger and sweet potato fries. This will be my go-to pre-theater place from now on.
