Food is always solid, rewards program needs some communication tweaking. Service is good, wish they allowed corkage waiver with bottle purchase.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
