First time since the shutdown. Learned the chain has been bought by Landry's. Landry's has ruined many of nice restaurants, i.e. McCormick and Schmicks.

Had the bone in ribeye steak. this was a little tough and difficult to cut. flavor was not as what a steak should be. Mac and cheese was dry. prices have increased, quality less than before

This was our first time at this restaurant. I chose this place for my family being it's the Easter holiday. The menu that was on their website was NOT the menu served to us for dinner. I was really disappointed. My steak was not cooked medium rare but medium. I did not want to complain because the service was good. Our experience was okay nothing out of the extraordinary.

I’m a huge Del Frisco’s franchise fan, either their standard or Grille locations. I’ve dined @ the Spectrum location 15-20 times but haven’t been there in over a year. One of my favorite “go to’s” is the Prime Cheeseburger, fries, & a beer. Keep it simple stupid.

Honestly, my experience on Easter was nothing short of AWFUL. One of the worst burgers I’ve had...anywhere. Luke warm patties that were both over cooked, cheese wasn’t even melted in the slightest, with a cold bun the crumbled apart. A complete joke & an embarrassment to the Del Frisco’s brand. If you can’t cook a simple cheeseburger, just imagine the rest of the menu.

I don’t know what happened @ this location but it’s surely my last trip. Be very careful about making a reservation...diner beware.

The chicken was severely under cooked. Pink in center. When asked to correct it, they instructed the chef cooked it to temperature and we were mistaken. Ordered my salad without dressing it came with dressing. When I asked for it corrected, they came back with the fully saturated dressing filled meat on plain lettuce. Drinks took over 15 minutes to arrive at our table. I have been to Del Frisco’s many times prior to today. Unfortunately, after today’s experience I will no longer dine at this location. Side note..our server was very kind and understanding. My review is directly related to management and kitchen staff.

Honestly.... the food sucked. I gave the food an extra star because the wings were pretty decent. But $62 for the smallest piece of meat (that was so difficult to cut through & had the worst burnt taste) and mediocre seafood?! No ma’am. We were celebrating our anniversary & were so disappointed. We went to mcdonalds after & had a better experience lol

My wife and I were looking forward to a nice dinner and we were underwhelmed by the food. As you can see in the picture, this is how the entrée was presented to us. Small, burnt looking steak and 3 dried out crab stuffed shrimp. No garnish on the plate, the plate presented no WOW factor. The mashed potatoes were served in a small bowl. The VIP Martini was not good. It was 9+ minutes after we were seated for anyone to approach us. Our waiter was nice, but rarely came around to check on us. Water glasses sat empty most of the meal. Not happy. Our expectations were not met with this experience.

Our go-to celebration dinner restaurant where we always get quality, delicious food for our whole family. Eating outside on the patio is perfect for our family with 3 kids under 6-years-old.

On short notice it was the only restaurant I could get a reservation for 5 people on a Saturday night @7pm. I've been here before and the food has been hit or miss except for the steaks which are always very good. Here is my biggest gripe of the evening. Our waiter did not write down any of our orders which is common at upscale restaurants except for the fact that our waiter could not remember what we requested when we placed our orders. Every time a salad, appetizer or entree came out we had to ask him 2nd or 3rd time if we could get the ranch or balsamic dressing we ordered and did not come out with the food. Had to ask multiple times for things like that when it would've been easier if he just wrote it down and got it correct on the first time rather than try and remember everything and then deliver half the items correctly. My wife asked for her filet to be cooked medium well and the steak came out medium rare at best so she had to wait about 10 min for them to cook the steak properly. When the bill came the waiter couldn't remember who ordered what and when we split the bill a friend of mine had 2x wedge salads on his bill when he only ordered 1 wedge and my wife had the other. Instead of waiting another 10 min for him to come back and fix the bill I just handed my buddy a $10 bill so we could get out of there. Like I said my steak was perfectly cooked and no complaints there but the side of sauteed asparagus left something to be desired. The asparagus was barely cooked and felt like raw asparagus that was rolled in a pan of oil for 30 seconds, hardly sauteed, more like wet raw asparagus that was barely luke warm. I expect better quality for a side that cost $10.

All in all I was very unimpressed with my latest visit as I'm sure my friends we're who I brought with me since they had to repeatedly ask for the items they ordered and being charged for items they didn't themselves order.

The hostess was less than friendly and refused to
acknowledge we were even there for several minutes. There was no one else waiting.
Our waiter finally showed up after telling us he was dealing with a mess but it wasn’t our mess, whatever that meant. He might have been one of the worst waiters we have had in quite a while. My wife’s steak was under cooked so they took it back and “re-fired it” until it was rubbery. I never received my second drink and we sat with empty water glasses most of the night. No apologies, They don’t care.

My husband and I went out for a nice dinner on Saturday and had a great time. Our server, Dakota, was exceptional. He was personable and quick-witted, and he recommended some lovely dishes to accompany our wine. He was always available to fill our glasses and when we finished our bottle of wine, he recommended a fantastic one by the glass to finish off our meal. He even recommended a lovely dessert. We really enjoyed ourselves, and we will be back, because of him.
