We were really looking forward to this outing. The food was just ok. The steak we ordered we could have had better at Texas Roadhouse. Service was a little slow and parking was terrible due to the garage being closed. We will not go back!

If you're looking for a loud bar with mediocre food presentation and 'pretty good' food.... this is your place. If you want a great meal with a quieter dining experience, head to the Del Friscos off Olive St instead.

The waiter was extremely inexperienced and knew nothing about the food or drink menu. There was no table cloths and the environment looked cheap. The steaks were burnt. We thought we were coming to a nice steak restaurant, but salt grass any average steak place would have been much better. This restaurant used to be nice…what happened?

The service is AWFUL. The manager is AWFUL. The hosts didn’t seem to know how to seat a table and let a server know. And when we finally got a server we were told our initial server was “too busy”. The food is great, although the crab cake Benedict on the brunch menu is not a crab cake at all just a few flecks of crab meat.

The restaurant was unusually slow given that it was a Saturday night. Our waiter tried to be attentive, but never there when needed. We were seated on the 2nd floor, where few tables were occupied. So it may have been easy for staff to forget about us. There was no music and what should have been a more lively atmosphere was lacking. The food was fine; no issues there.

This is a formerly great restaurant that is ready to be scrapped and start over again. The interior of the restaurant is entirely run down and has really fallen into disrepair. It is no longer a first class dining experience. It’s time for them to hit the reset button.

This was our first visit tot he Uptown Del Frisco Grill. They did not have Valet but offered free parking int he lot right behind the building and they even had a security guard there. Our server Gilbert was excellent and let us enjoy a leisurely dinner without rushing us, My ribeye was excellent and the lobster and sirloin was tasty as well. The was the first time I had the roasted garlic mushrooms...to die for!!! Yummy

Wait staff was fine, nothing exceptional.
Food was below average. Definitely not worth the price.
Drinks not served with cocktail napkins, made table constantly wet. Waiter said they don’t have cocktail napkins. Just boring, blah and uneventful. For sure won’t go back

I’ve wanted to try a Del Frisco’s for a long time and thought it would be a great place for my anniversary. Let me start with the server. Gave me a menu without the bottle menu and then wanted to correct me and open it in front of me until he realized “oh no bottle menu”. Later wanted to correct me about my wine order when I was just making a point about wanting to try a particular winery. Then when my date asked for chimichurri he was corrected and said churro sauce. No we have A1. It was very evident the server didn’t know the basics of the menu.

Overall the restaurant seemed very overwhelmed. We both ordered medium rare steaks. As you can see from the photo it was medium at best. We were asked to cut into it but until I made several cuts I didn’t know it was wrong. At that point I wasn’t going to send it back. Two appetizers and three sides and all were mediocre. The steaks tasted great. I would have spoke with the manager but he was already dealing with other unhappy tables. It made my anniversary a complete failure and it was also the very first time I put an anniversary or birthday on a reservation and not one person acknowledged it in anyway. This place left much to be desired.

Food is always good, and was today as well. But what stood out was the OUTSTANDING service from our waiter. I am only sorry that I did not catch his name, because he was one of the absolute best I've encountered. Just the right amount of helpful. Never interrupted--it was a working lunch, but was on pointe regarding every need. Read subtle cues and just took care of EVERYTHING. He took the dining experience to another level, which is always a challenge with a pressure sensitive work meeting.

I had the worse experience in this restaurant yesterday July 3 Saturday night.
Everything was so slow the bartender didn’t know how to make drink and he took so long the food was OK and the manager was so rude. We will never go back to this restaurant I never had this kind of service before and after all that we didn’t even got 1$ discount in the bill and after we paid everything + 20% tip when we walk out the restaurant the rude manager tell us to stop because he don’t see that we paid! So so so rude!!!!! We gave cash to his server + tip and we walk so upset after a nightmare night! DONT GO!

we had a party of 15 that Jared was expected to handle alone. he forgot everyone’s orders, MULTIPLE TIMES. we ordered our food at 9 something and didn’t have plates on our table until nearly 11pm. the food tasted okay, except i asked for my steak to be prepared MEDIUM and when i received it it was medium rare or rare. one of Jared’s coworkers came out and made the rude comment that he was slow and forgetful. in all honesty the waiter did his best but him being overwhelmed caused me to have a terrible experience for my 30th birthday dinner. also when the manager finally came to the table to apologize we had to ask him to accommodate us! which he did with watery shots lol. i do not recommend!!!!

Gilbert was a wonderful server. Our food and drinks were great, and we had a fun date night. The prices were reasonable too. My husband really liked the fried artichoke leaves. It reminded me of a better blooming onion and the sauce was really good. Out of everything we ate, somehow the deviled eggs were my favorite. I’m sure craving them is what will make us go back again. We accidentally closed the place down and we’re the last to leave, but everyone was still really nice.

This restaurant is struggling with service - probably a problem created by the pandemic and the resulting scarcity of wait staff. It took us a long time to even get water on the table. I had to go ask the manager to take our drink orders. Once they assigned a waiter to the table he made a nice effort to serve us. But it took a while. He was supported by the manager, who checked in with us a lot.

Food was good but not outstanding.

I also thought the atmosphere was a little downscale. Not much of a dress code. It's just not as nice a restaurant as it used to be. We spent a lot of money ($400) for four people, and I don't think we got appropriate value for that. At that price point, I expect everything to be pretty good.

Knowing what I know now, I would have gone to Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse. Our experience at the Grille wasn't awful, but it wasn't what I had hoped.

After being seated it was about 15 minutes before we were acknowledged. Afterwards our waitress was amazing very good service from her. However, later that night I became ill I had the Lemon Dill Salmon, crab cake and truffle mac&cheese not sure which one was the culprit but I was sick for hours.

A lot of riff raff there. No dress code, people slightly loud, and the cocktail glasses were dirty (both hanging and on tables). Can’t say I’ll return.

Xavier. Hands down. He took care of me and my party! He was very knowledgeable about the menu and very personable. His table manners/customer service were impeccable. Without having to ask for anything he was already in motion with it and he went above and beyond. Can’t say enough about the service.

Food…on point (per usual) and the drinks were amazing. But the service was a 12 out of 10 stars, only heightened the food/dining experience!

It was my partner’s birthday and I listed that in my Open Table reservation. We were seated for 5 minutes and nobody greeted us or got us anything to drink. I actually had to wave at someone to come to our table. Also, the server never asked if we were celebrating anything, much less did he look at our reservation to know we were celebrating a birthday. I am very disappointed by Del Frisco’s Grille and am considering letting others know about this unless they make it right somehow. Please forward this message to the Manager or owner of the restaurant.
