The food was quite mediocre. The swordfish special was dry and under seasoned. And they were out of Sauvignon Blanc by the glass?! SRSLY?

What makes a great dinner? Excellent food with exceptional service. The food at Del Frisco's Grille is consistently excellent. High quality, fair price, nice portions. During this visit, our waiter was extremely busy and it took too long for us to be served. Lisa, the Manager on Duty, jumped into action and made things happen. She worked to ensure our experience was the best that it could be by assigning a new wait-professional who made our dinner a great experience. If you want a place that goes above and beyond so that your meal IS what it is supposed to be, Del Frisco's Grille is a great option.

The food was not good at all, they were out of several items. I’ve eaten at several del’Friscos and this one was the least satisfying

The host was not friendly. No type of greeting at all. My date showed him our reservation on his phone and the host just said “follow me.”
The waitress was okay as well, she had a bit of a sassy attitude at first but toward the end she lighten up.
The food was good I recommend it was a 9/10. I wish the staff was more bubbly and vibrant but whole overall vibe experience was a 7/10

Service was slow and the food was not the typical quality we are used to receiving at other Del Frisco Grilles( NYC or Denver). Very below average, and even had a bug buried in the salad.

Resteraunt needs a good cleaning. Musty smell. Back tables by the kitchen line are very noisy. Food is ok. Lacks ambiance. Outside seating, noisy at night by passing foot traffic and cars.

First time to this place with my wife. Our server was very nice. She recommended a great drink, the White Sangria, it was delicious. As for the food, the salmon my wife got was moist, cooked very well, but very bland, absolutely no flavor. She used a ton of salt on it and it could’ve used some sort of sauce. I got the bbq shrimp salad, the shrimp was good, the salad itself was horrible for me personally. The flavor, the dressing, nothing great about it. I didn’t even finish eating half of it. Although our appetizer, the mushroom flatbread was pretty good. All in all, it was a nice restaurant, with a pleasant atmosphere. But we most likely will not return. Luckily there are many other restaurants we can try. Thanks.

The steak was good and cooked exactly right. The soups were good. Nothing else good to say. Service was bad, place looked dirty, food took forever and they weren’t very busy. They brought our food but we had no utensils to eat it with. Took several minutes to get them, food got cold. The mashed potatoes were not good, salad over dressed. Just overall a very mediocre at best experience

We had a good meal in a lively setting. Food, service, drinks were great. We sat in the patio and watched people on Ocean. The fried artichokes were excellent. The scallops were prepared well. Drinks were tasty and it's a fun atmosphere

The food & ambience is always wonderful. Our waitress was so helpful & understanding as I was trying to find the perfect wine to accompany my delicious Filet meal.

This has become one of our special restaurants to celebrate important occasions.

Lovely table with view of ocean. Terrible service. Waiter uninformed. Never offered refills on ice tea. No water offered. Had to ask for everything. No dessert offered. Made reservation noting my sisters birthday and no one mentioned or brought her anything until our way out when the hostess said "happy birthday". Too bad such a great location. Probably won't be back.

The restaurant was a mix of experiences. The food was tasty and service was good but the value was not great for the quantity you received. You are definitely paying for location. We actually laughed when my small steak came out on a huge plate by itself. The side was on a separate plate. The ribs were huge and tasty.

The food was pricey for the quality. The food was very bland and had no seasoning on it. The environment was fine and we were seated at our table right away. Overall, the restaurant was just OK, I will not be back again witgh so many great food choices close by this location.

I was worried that this would be too touristy, right on Ocean Avenue near the Santa Monica pier. It was very pleasant, the food was good and our server provided great service. The crispy artichokes are a really nice appetizer and the meat and salmon were very nicely prepared and very good.
