Food is always solid, rewards program needs some communication tweaking. Service is good, wish they allowed corkage waiver with bottle purchase.
Restaurant lacked a lot of items on menu. This was during lunch time.
Rather disappointed although we had a great night with friends at the restaurant. Food was cold when delivered, steaks over cooked, bathrooms lacking toilet paper and towels. Ordered a filet mignon that arrived closer to charred black over medium rare. Our charcuterie appetizer was dry and lacked much cheese. Service was above average and delightful but food lacked a reason to return.
On of my favorite places for business lunches. Great patio, good food
It was a reunion. We were seated next to an open door, adjacent to the patio. While we understand weed is ok in California, it was assaulting to breathe it in the entire meal. Additionally, as soon as it was dark, it was very cold. The food service was adequate, the quality less so. My steak salad was soaked in dressing; my friend sent her scallops back as they were just scallops and salt. The corn chowder was AMAZING. Our server was lovely, while very delightful, didn’t know how to wear a mask during the most recent outbreak. Whether we believe it or not, respecting the current laws would have been nice. We won’t be back-and there were nine of us.
An excellent experience with our kids and grandkids. Awesome food, great service and an overall outstanding evening.
Sadly we had bad experience, we ordered 8oz fillet and what we got was about 4 or 5 Oz, the steak sandwiches were full of fat, the salad suppose to included with the entree but charged extra $15. Will not go back anymore.
Worst service I have ever experienced. Our server was gone majority of our visit, i made the reservations the previous day and they didn’t seem to know about it as they rushed to put a table together.
It was my mother’s birthday and we didn’t even stay for desert because we were all fed up with the quality of service.
It got the point where another server came to check if everything was okay, because we were visibly upset and all of our beverages were empty.
I had to find other server just so we can get water for our table and our check.
We finally got our check and waited another 15 min for our assigned server to pick up the check. luckily we were able to pay online and get the hell out of there.
I would never recommend this place to anyone under any circumstances.
Had the deviled eggs, short rib stroganoff, and baby back ribs w/ brussels sprouts; all excellent taste and texture. Nice seating area outside with heaters
Steaks came out the wrong temp. But every accommodation was made to correct. The food was delicious as well!
Our server was great. One of our guests was a senator visiting from Mexico and he tried his best to speak Spanish with her and all the other guests. Great service and delicious food.
The steaks were cooked perfectly, but they served them too soon before resting them so the juices ran. Their big steak knives were dull. The server told us they are getting new ones. I’m a regular and I will be going back there again.
Amazing food, service and ambience! We went for a special new year's eve dinner and were not disappointed!
Simple and to the point: great service, great food, and very quick turnaround on service and time at the table which is awesome. I’ll be recommending to any friend looking for a great meal option in the spectrum.
Staff was super nice and accommodating, even with 2 young kids. Food is always good here
We went to celebrate my birthday a couple hours before closing. It was taking so long time to get our drink menus that I had to go find someone! The various cocktails we ordered were all good which saved the night. Ahí tacos were good. Deviled eggs and crab cake were ok but really nothing special. The popular egg rolls and truffled mac cheese were inedibly too salty. My filet mignon was burnt on one edge of the steak, so I had to waste those couple ounces. I believe the steaks should have at least been cooked correctly at this establishment. Apparently, a decent bartender was there. Too bad someone who does not know how to cook was in the kitchen. I understand that we were there just before closing, but the kitchen wasn’t closed yet. It should have been! Considering the prices, everything should have been much better. Also, I did not get anything for my birthday!
Our waiter was very attentive and explained the menu and specials for the day. Food was prepared excellent and they have a wide selection of wines.
Always good food and service here but we were disappointed to discover they were out of VIPs (what?!?) and out of short rib stroganoff
We love Del Friscos . The service was excellent. The appetizers truly delicious. Crispy artichokes amazing, cheese burger egg rolls really fabulous. We split a large ribeye. Tough and gristle, very chewy… we should have sent back but did not. Mashed potatoes were great and the best part was desert! We had a coconut cream pie to absolutely die for . This is one of my favorite restaurants and ordinarily great steaks, unfortunately not this one!
My friend had cobb salad with shrimp it was great!
Sarah was an amazing server. We did not care for the brewed & butter. My mom & I loved our entree but my daughter said her steak was very tough cooked at medium. Service was great.
Food was very overpriced and underwhelming. Cauliflower steak was not cooked right, no flavor and hard. Veggie sides were overpriced. Wouldn't recommend and is not veggie-friendly.
This was a wonderful Christmas dinner!! We were seated immediately and our server really kept check on us throughout the evening. Our ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were nice and creamy. And the holiday salad was divine! All in all, excellent service, amazing food, and great music. By far, for me and my husband Del Frisco’s is our favorite steakhouse!! Thank you for a fantastic Christmas dining experience.
Had a late Christmas lunch with a party of four. We all had different entrees and everyone was happy with all the food items. The maple Manhattan drink was so good I had to have another . . .
Great find on my first visit. Will definitely come back and recommend to others.
Super busy night. So glad we found a place for dinner. They were totally understaffed. But delivered great service, food, and fun. Will definitely go back.
I had better experience at Del Frisco’s before, but Christmas Eve dinner was a complete waste of time and money,
I still like this place for lunch and happy hour but won’t ever come back for dinner
I know things are hectic but seems like everyone working was overwhelmed from the check in by the manager to the server.
I requested an indoor table for our party of 6 and we were seated outdoors. It would not have been a big deal, except it was raining and cold. We were the only people seated in the outdoor area at the time and they sat us right at the edge of the patio. We were getting dripped on by the rain the whole time. The food and service were good, but take better care of your customers requests. Or at least we could’ve been seated in the middle of the patio by the fireplace so we’re weren’t getting rained on while eating our $200 lunch.
I have ended up at Del Frisco’s a few times now simply because I could get a last minute reservation through Open Table at the time that I needed. That being said, I am never disappointed by anything! The food is always tasty, the service is great and I always have a nice time. They make special occasions memorable as well. It’s location away from the busiest parts of spectrum is a relief also. A lovely place to enjoy a meal.
Understaffed so very slow service. We weren’t in a big rush so it was all right. Artichoke appetizer and side of truffle Mac and Cheese were SUPERB. But……took almost a half hour to park. Note to self-avoid Spectrum around Christmas time.
I was shown to my table immediately after arriving for my reservation. My dinner was great and the service was outstanding. My waitress, Sarah, made my overall experience at Del Frisco’s Grille pleasant with her enthusiasm and attentiveness. Thank you so much.
Girls gift Exchange happy hour and dinner sat at the booth in the bar the waitress barely came to us had to get up three times to get the manager to process food orders and to pay the bill. We could have walked out without paying - unreal. And the worst part it wasn’t even that busy the bar had made 4 people and the restaurant was half full. Horrible… won’t be going there again!
Food and drinks fantastic! Service was great but be patient!! We sat in the bar and served by the bartender, he was really busy but made are experience great!!!
Very mediocre food. Server was slammed and made his best effort. Cannot recommend with those prices.
Sat at the bar, just a fantastic place to have dinner
Excellent service. Great food.
The food and our server were both great. It looked like restaurant want under-staffed and it took over 15 mins to even see a host/hostess at the entrance. We were the only ones at the entrance so the wait was because no one was manning the front even though it prime lunch time. I assume this was of lack of staffing.
The noise level was pretty high with all the Xmas parties going on; still, service was a bit slow, but the food always came thru with top quality and taste.
I am a fan of the original Del Frisco's in Dallas and have eaten there many times. I have also eaten at the New York location and the one in Santa Monica and have always had a great meal. The Irvine location is beautiful esthetically but the food has never been up to the traditional Del Frisco standard. I'm an investment banker so I frequent many high end steak houses as part of my client entertainment. Those include but are not limited to Mastro's, Ruth's Chris, Gallaghers in NY, Ben Benson, Lawry's and others - I know a good steak when I have one. I would love to entertain more at the Spectrum Del Frisco's but I would need to see some improvement. I live within 5 miles of the restaurant so it would be perfect. My two cents.
The host had no personality and we sat at our table for quite some time before someone came over to offer us water and drinks. Our server was good but it seemed like they were short staffed.
The service was pretty good, food was good but not outstanding. The whole experience wasn't as exciting as we were hoping for. We sat outside on the patio in a corner. Our server Liz was great and helpful!
