Brunch, not too crowded and ready good menu options. We also tried the crack coffee and the eggs in purgatory which were amazing. The healthy food options were appreciated as well as the heavy food options. Lol.

We had a very poor experience last night at Del Frisco's Grille from start to end. We were promptly seated but then waited about 10 minutes before a waiter noticed we had not been helped. Once we had the waiter, we ordered an appetizer and both of us selected their current 3-course prix fix menu with wine pairings. From there, I was served Rose that was not cold and our appetizer went completely missing until I mentioned it to the waiter after our soups had been cleared. When we finally got the appetizer (cheesesteak eggrolls) they were also lukewarm. We hadn't even finished the app before the main course appeared (awful coordination on meals all night) - my girlfriend got the pork chop (nicely cooked, no issues) while I got the filet duo (8oz steak cut into two portions, one prepared Oscar and the other with butter). I ordered medium for both, one came perfect and the other well done. I mentioned it and they took it away to re-prepare. Fast-forward 15 minutes, steaks return and one is rare, the other medium-rare. For a brand that claims to be steak-centric, this was really bad. The manager quickly showed up and apologized and said she would comp my meal and asked if I wanted something else which I got gnocchi (didn't want any food from the grill at that point) which was solid. The final nail in the coffin was when the waiter poured our dessert port into red wine glasses, seriously? I was not the only person complaining about the food last night as my girlfriend and I saw multiple steaks being returned to kitchen. With so many "Grille" options in Dallas, this one was certainly fallen to the bottom of my list and I will not be returning.

The fall menu was delicious. Our waitress was good except she kept messing up our orders, and ended up giving our to-go orders backwards which wasn’t ideal when we got home with the wrong meals. Other than that, good food and nice atmosphere.

Chris, the manager, did everything possible to make sure that our anniversary was special. Management should be proud of this manager. The food was delicious and our server, Reid, was very conscientious. We enjoyed the salmon and the fried fish. For dessert, we had the Nutella Bread Pudding and it was outstanding. All of their food is responsibly priced. Great bar and the ambiance is casual yet classy.

My wife and I had a great time on our well overdue Date Night. Our waiter, Andreas, was awesome with a great personality. College Football was on the flatscreens but the noise level of the restaurant was not loud. The food was awesome as we ate everything. The Mac and Cheese is a must have!!

The food was not good at all. Steak was a piece of fat. Returned it and asked how they could possibly serve this type of meat at a steak restaurant. The answer was “I don’t know but we will not charge you”. I do not recommend this particular location.

Steak was charred and burned, broccoli was dry & over cooked. Service was VERY SLOW and there weren’t but 3 other tables. Food had to be recooked and everyone was done eating by the time my steak came out for my birthday and there were no fresh sides brought out when my steak was recooked. Bad experience at this location for sure. Also no one told us about the parking voucher for the garage so we had to walk back inside to ask.

Beautiful brunch spot. Good food but not spectacular. The teenagers loved the pancake and waffle plates. My ahi tuna salad was fine but uninspired and in need of seasoning. His ribs were unimpressive, but not sure why he would’ve expected much. Nice location and good wine list. The cinnamon roll looked fabulous as it walked by several times!

Our waiter was awesome! Zachary was very attentive and polite, food was delicious as always! The Fall Special was delightful and had many options for anyone tasting a dish out of the norm. The wine selection Del Frisco’s has is amazing, had a bottle of the Prisoner which is one of my favorite blends. My daughter loves the fun appetizers however her favorite is the cheesesteak egg rolls. Steaks were grilled perfectly and everyone has to try the lobster Mac and Cheese, we have tasted many by far the best!! Again I must recommend Zachary as your waiter he’s awesome and will make you feel at home!

I like Del Frisco's but this was a total let down from beginning to end, the service completely ruined the night.
I got the fall menu + wine pairing and the waitress had no idea what was going on. I had to explain her two or three time what does wine pairing mean and they managed to fail to bring me the right wine with each dish or to bring the wine WITH the dish.

Steak salad was a disappointment. Ordered with slight pink and meat came, sliced (so overdone was very visible) very charred and no pink at all. Clearly not how ordered but it was served anyways. Salad lacked ingredients as described but a few pieces were found at the bottom of the salad. Disappointing for a $17 salad. Table was sticky and restaurant had a several flies inside.

For a restaurant which has established its reputation on fine steaks it is inexcusable to present a steak not cooked to order and to have to send it back. Very disappointing!

My first time to Del Frisco, had heard a lot about it, especially this location. It really seemed to be the place to be especially for the location, Uptown. It was our anniversary, I had heard the food was really good. I would have opted for something a little quieter for our anniversary. But the food was great... the cocktail was delish! I would definitely recommend it to others regardless.

Well we came in for a nice dinner. We were sat right next to the kitchen. The server didn’t bother to offer any of the specials that were off the menu. I saw something come out of the kitchen after I already ordered, and she rebutted oh we can change your order I should have told you about that.
After the food came out, sewer water started coming out of the kitchen. The smell was horrible and made me loose my appetite. I tried to finish my food as I was famished but when the manager came by and started spraying air freshener it’s completely ruined it. My wife and I grabbed our drinks and finish them at the bar. And guess what, I didn’t finish my food and still had to pay full price.

The kitchen got my burger order so wrong it wasn't worth getting fixed. Got wrong cheese and sauces wrong and then took 3 times to get a drink right and they had the audacity to comp the 2nd drink free even though only one martini was ordered. The booth was nice except the cushions were soooooo lumpy.

We had a reservation and was seated promptly on a Saturday night. Brooke was our server and she was awesome; attentive, friendly, and willing to accommodate. We started with the crab cake which was served perfectly crisp and filled with lump crab and no fillerS. Is was served atop an aoili which complimented w/o overpowering. We all had an 8oz filet mes. rare and the 6oz lobster tail. Both were again cooked to perfection and very flavorful. There was nothing left. The sommelier suggested a wonderful bottle of wine and it was so good we had two. I highly recommend for you next place to dine when you want excellent food with a warm and friendly atmosphere.
