was a casual dinner with a friend. wait staff was friendly and attentive. i asked for a particular cocktail not listed on the menu, and our server was more than willing to work with the bar to accommodate. turned out great. cheesesteak egg rolls are always the best. entrees were equally delicious. it’s always a great experience at del friscos. the food and service are top notch.

Del Frisco’s (Irvine) has been my favorite restaurant for years! I’ve been there with family including teens and grandparents; for happy hour with coworkers; MNO; birthday lunches and dinners; and even Easter Sunday. All of the dishes are yummy and the portion sizes are perfect. The cocktails and wine selections are great too. We’ve always had good service. Some of our favorites: ahi tacos, deviled eggs, steakhouse salad, prime beef short rib stroganoff, southern fried chicken sandwich, truffled mac & cheese, coconut cream pie, and the VIP.

The service and staff were great! Very attentive and polite. The food was disappointing. Based on reviews we ordered the cheeseburger egg rolls. There was way too much cheese and the dipping sauce was lacking in flavor. We had the brick chicken, seared Ahi, and zucchini topped with parmesan. Everything was just mediocre with poor quality ingredients. The cheese used in the egg roll tasted like it was processed cheese sauce. The parmesan on the zucchini was very thick and reminded me of the canned type bought in grocery stores. Sadly we will not go back. Too expensive for mediocre food with what tasted like poor quality ingredients.

Service was very good and the food was wonderful. I had the bone in fillet and it was to die for. The zucchini was also very good.

Signature drinks are also great!

Very friendly greeting/service. Was set next to a party of about 10 so was quite loud. No problem to move to quieter table on patio. Large drink menu. Dinner menu moderate size. Didn't have appetizers so we all ordered steak - The Filet Mignon Oscar was delicious. The 16 oz ribeye was a bit underdone but our waitress & manager came over before I could say anything and got it prepared perfectly. A delicious ribeye. Had coconut cream pie for dessert - large enough to share. It was creamy and not too sweet.

We decided to do appetizers and salad. The philly cheesesteak eggrolls were so good. The crabcake was one of the best I have had. So fresh. The artichoke bignets were good. Can't wait to go back and try the steaks.

This was our second time there and it was just as great! The food there is incredible. We definitely left feeling like we had eaten way too much, but everything was so good. We ordered the parmesan fries, they are great. The crab cake was good. The bone in rib eye was insane, massive and delicious. The mac and cheese is so rich and our favorite. Had the peanut butter pie for dessert and it was a nice ending. Would recommend and will return.

Girls night out before a concert at Fivepoint Amphitheatre. Our waiter was great. My meal was absolutely delicious. My friend and I shared both the BBQ Shrimp Cobb salad and the Steak Sandwich. Loved every bite. Unfortunately one of the girls ordered the Filet Burger cooked Medium Rare and it came well done. Since we were in a hurry we could not have it remade, so the waiter comped it. So nice of him as it was not his fault! I will be back with my hubby so he can try the steak sandwich - I know he will love it!!!

Steve really made our night! I brought my husband to Del Frisco's to celebrate a few things. We just got married on June 1st and I wanted to bring him here to celebrate our marriage as well as for a late fathers day gift. Steve went 100% out of his way to make sure our stay was the best. The food, incredible. Service, outstanding. He went above and beyond to even present us with a card that each server had signed congratulating us on our new marriage. We will be requesting Steve to any future visit to Del Friscos. We made sure he got a fat tip. Thank you Steve for really making us feel like royalty!

One of our new favorite restaurants! The steak selection has a great variety! Our family was able to try a little bit of everything from the bone in filet, filet duo, and the bone in rib eye.

Just overall fantastic steak house, the worst part is how isolated the restaurant is from the rest of the Spectrum. Which is why it took us so long to discover it! Highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a good steak house.

They forgot my husbands drink, and left out my daughters soda. The dish my husband ordered he wanted it rare, it’s not what he expected to be. My daughters bowl, the rice was under cooked. Not sure what was going on today. It wasn’t even that busy. This was his Father’s Day dinner, it should’ve been better than this. Although, they removed the 2 appetizers from our bill.

Great service. The food is excellent and they make sure they get your steak just right. The pour on the before-dinner drink could be a little better for the price, but that wouldn't change my mind about going back. Also, great location; next to the parking garage, so you don't have to walk a mile to get there.

The service is extraordinary. Server was familiar with the menu and able to describe dishes. The three of us shared the ahi tacos and loved them -- a nice size appetizer to share (4 tacos). Our entrees were the steak salad (medium rare), the brick chicken and the beef short ribs with pappardelle and a stroganoff gravy. We all enjoyed ever bite and had no room left for dessert, which is a shame because they have several excellent ones. I especially recommend the lemon cake. The size is shareable and it's a light, citrusy finish to a wonderful meal. Our ages were 23 to 72 and we all liked the background music (but it was not so loud as to interfere with conversation). I think it's more of a special occasion dining experience, but not bad, without drinks and sharing one appetizer, plus gratuity, it came to about $40 per person. I think it's on par with other good restaurants in the area as far as price is concerned.

I am a VIP at DF and have dined at this Grille before...disappointed by the quality of the steak I was served..It was a "Prime Ribeye"..gristle throughout the steak..small amount was actually very good. Vegetables and fries ordered were luke warm...service was good..hostess was great. But very disappointed by the quality of food. This was not up to DF standards. Thank you.

I go to Del Frisco's fairly frequently for work lunches and enjoy the Steakhouse Salad. This time around it wasn't as good as before. Lettuce not quite as fresh and a bit on the skimpy side. Otherwise, it's still a good place to go.
