My husband and I dined at Del Frisco and ordered burger and sirloin steak with a side of brussels sprouts. I woke up in the middle of the night with stomach pain and my husband woke up shortly after me with same symptoms. He had stomach pain all morning and was late to work. I had to rush to the hospital to see the doctor as I'm pregnant and was extremely worried about my baby's safety. When I called to report the problem to the Manager - Nick he said that the restaurant didn't get any other reports and he was sorry I was not feeling well. Nothing was offered to compensate our terrible experience.

The waiter V was amazing! Exceeded all expectations and went out of his way to provide a memorable birthday celebration. He has a high level of understanding for service excellence and guest experience. Highly promotable. I will always ask for him upon my return.

I have been here several times and always had a really great experience from start to finish, even in this pandemic world.

Unfortunately, we went over the weekend for my birthday and the service was abysmal. The food runner they had working that evening literally dropped our appetizer onto the table without saying a word and then took off, and our table was clearly being communally served by the bartenders - which would have been fine but they all clearly were either too busy or didn't have much vested interest in our experience.

We were not even offered dessert, which was a bummer because we definitely wanted it as well as some espresso to finish out the night, however having your check dropped is usually a pretty good indication that it's time to vacate.

My previous visits were either on a weeknight or in the morning, I will definitely not return for a busy weekend, but it was a special occasion which is what made the experience even more saddening.

All of that being said, the food was truly excellent. The kitchen rescued the evening.

Table was dirty and sticky, food was all wrong, asked for different sauce on steak, smothered wrong sauce all over, wooden spike was found in the Coke, imagine if the person had taken a sip, waitress disappeared for over 20 minutes before we could order, not all meals were brought out at same time, we waited for over five minutes for one of only three meals, so the other two were basically cold. Never will be back. $45 for a tiny piece of meat with no sides, completely ridiculous. Don’t worry I’m not cheap, eat out 4-5 times a week for dinner. Please is way over priced with crappy service. You just lost a high spending foodie for life!

Normally a solid 4+ star dining event, with excellent food and attentive service. Perhaps it was the Labor Day weekend that caused them to be short-staffed - our server was excellent - pleasant, knowledgeable, but there were not nearly enough servers to handle the number of tables they seated or the table size. Managers should have held some of the seating off and quoted a wait to those coming in. The result was that every table received exceeding slow service and an atypical lack of attention for this restaurant. It was not until it appeared near the breaking point that the two managers on the floor actually began to assist the overwhelmed servers. While I worked as a server, our managers would jump in at a moment's notice to assist or avoid problems. Not so here. Poor management choices IMHO.

The service was extremely slow as our waiter must have had 6-8 other tables so getting his attention for drinks and our original order was less than desirable. The food was average for the price and overall I wouldn’t go back.

The place is nice and food is good. They need to work on their timing and service.
We were a party of 8 and without asking us or giving us the option ( even thought they had big party tables available in the main sitting area, and we had a reservation, wasn't like we just walked in ) they had us in a private conference looking room since it looked like they had a meeting earlier because most of their paperwork's were still on the table. After a while, I had to go physically ask someone to come and just get our drink orders. looked like they completely forgot they are people in that room!!

Also, we don't know if there was something going between the 2 waiters, because in front of us very obvious 2 times one of the waiters just passed by the other one, and shouldered him hard and passed by him, you could feel the tensions between them. Maybe the owners or manager need to pay more attention to their staff.

Went here for a birthday dinner. The Food was great. Our waitress was very friendly. The host was nice but there was a woman next to him in front when you enter and she was rude. Didn’t smile or even speak, she Just stared at us. Not sure if she was in training or what. Other than that, i had a great time. Everyone else was super friendly. The cheesesteak egg roll appetizers are fire. I will definitely be back

Food was mediocre at best. Ribs were blah, Cesar Salad was very plain, heirloom tomato and burrata salad was mini tomato’s (and a whole regular tomato cut in quarters). Server was slammed but was positive and tried hard (major credit there). Manager was extremely rude while we were being sat though. Wanted us to change tables as we were being sat but never actually asked or acknowledged us. He just told the hostess that he was about to seat the table and we could have another one. Rude to us and his employee! Any way, wasn’t worth the $$ for the quality and experience.

Went to dinner with 5 People for a Friends Birthday. One of the reasons we were looking for Good Ambiance, we were sat in the back and there was ZERO Ambiance, not even music in the background. The Drinks were okay and expensive, same for the food, the steak (they are known for) was tough and pricey. Should have gone across a street to Fogo De Chao. We averaged $150 per person (including tax and tip) which would have been fine, if the food quality and ambiance would have been there. Sadly it was not. This was my second experience here, and there won't be a third.

Del Frisco's Grille has consistently been one of my favorite restaurants. I have not been here for a while because of COVID, but took a friend there. The food was not as good as I remember. My ordered by steak salad medium rare and it came out medium well to well done. I also felt like our server was not very attentive. The ambiance was fantastic, especially on the outside patio. I think they need to step up their food especially since it is not that cheap. I will give them another chance but not for a while.

I have been here multiple times and always enjoyed it. My last visit was a slight disappointment because we went on a Sunday hoping to order from the brunch menu, but were told it was limited to only a few items, none of which anyone in my party were wanting to order. So we settled and ordered from the regular menu — the food was all good, just a bit of a letdown from what we had in mind from the online brunch menu offerings. Staff was friendly and attentive and made sure our drinks were refilled.

Bottom line: Diners take note if you have your heart set on the brunch menu…it might not be available.

Ambiance and food was great, but Seemed like our waiter was only waiter assigned to the whole patio area. As much as he was trying to, Obviously this meant he was having a hard time being attentive including delays in taking our orders or forgetting stuff we had asked like asking for like to-go box at the end. This would be more on management than the waiter himself.

Steaks were cooked great and made the way we liked it. The entrees come with a side of your choice so that was nice addition to our steaks. They have a kids menu which is nice. It was my parents and me and my husbands anniversary, and 2 of my kids birthdays. They were nice enough to compliment us with champagne and desserts for the kids. Thank you so much for the great service. We are from out of town and would come back again.

Food and service were great. We had the deviled eggs, tomato and burrata salad, scallops, and the ribeye. All were prepared and seasoned perfectly well. Manager came by to check up on us and the server was very attentive. We had reservations at 5 and it was already pretty packed on a Saturday night. Would definitely come back again.
