Service and food was very good. Minus the truffle Mac N Cheese but that could be a personal preference on our part. Would come here again. Parkings not too bad a good amount a public parking available around the area. Location was awesome.

Everything was just fantastic. The food was amazing! The mushroom flatbread and margaritas were probably our favorites, but everything we ordered was top quality and so good. The staff was friendly and followed all the safety protocols. We can’t get back soon enough.

Slow, inattentive servers, steak got cold as I waited to get a fork, also with an empty wine glass. Food very good quality and flavorful. Reception very pleasant but then they forgot about us for 10-15 min. Service needs work and training.

Did not have our OpenTable reservation, but hostess was very pleasant and accommodating and seated us immediately.

Seemingly novice waiter was nice and trying, but made a few errors in our service. But he was trying to provide good service.

Steaks were overcooked minuscule filets with no sauces available to accompany them. One side dish was forgotten but quickly delivered.

We were hoping for a special evening but were disappointed.

We were very well separated from other diners. The servers were very careful to keep masked and distanced. When we asked an attendant to help get some take out
in a box he said “I’m not allowed to touch it.” I was impressed. Our waiter was VERY helpful and the food was excellent — especially the Baby Back Ribs!
It was the first time we went to dinner since early March of last year and a first rate start. Thank you!!!

No one greeted us. After about 15 mins we had to ask for a manger. She was nice and comped a round of drinks. Food was okay. The white sangria was amazing. That’s the only reason I’d go back.

Food was very mediocre for that high price point. I ate about half my meal because it wasn't worth the calories. Service and staff were excellent. My low opinion of this place is mostly the food. They other super annoying thing was the extremely loud electric guitar busker playing amplified horrible music across the street in front of the Pier. We could barely hear each other yelling across the table. We couldn't hear each other at all with masks on, so we had to take our masks off so we could basically lip read. It was such a terrible experience. Never going back. Sorry Del Frisco's.

Salmon was undercooked. Chicken sandwich dry and bun overly toasted (burnt) - little to no sauce. Broccoli bland - no seasoning. Mac & Cheese - didn't want to/did not finish it and that says a lot about their mac & cheese. Drink was so so but I'm good off them.

Don’t plan on dressing up. Not your typical steakhouse. People dress down and had a very non steakhouse feel.

This place was okay, location is perfect for people watching at the beach. The hostess could use a bit more manners when greeting guest not the guest greet the hostess, it took about 15 minutes for a waitress to come over. she was great no complaints. Overall this place is more suited for tourist.

I dined at this restaurant more than a handful of time and had great experiences.

This past Sunday was a different experience.

I was having dinner with a friend and we ordered 2 USDA prime ribeye and both of the steaks were very salty. He ate his as he was starving but I couldn’t.

They were nice enough to give me another piece and it was cooked medium and I had asked for medium rare. Finally third piece was rare. I could not eat it. Needless to say, I did not sleep too well and my heart was racing.

I’m sure this time was a one off experience.

Very disappointed med reservations for brunch to find out brunch wasn't being served. The normal things we look forward for at Del Frisco's were not available. The food was good but not what we were hoping to eat. The advertisements for Egg's Benedict on the website is not consistent with what they are serving.

The food was excellent. Our first waiter was not very good it didn’t seem to know what he was doing. Perhaps he was just new. Then he went on break and the second one was fine.
The food and drinks were excellent as usual.

Basketball shorts and jersey type of crowd. Don’t dress up to eat here. Also they always overcook the meat. Been 3 times because it’s the closest steakhouse to me. Always the same. Not the best option for this kind of food.

The food was delicious, but the service could have been so much better. The server took extremely long before asking us what we wanted to drink. The drinks took way too long, then ordering food was another long wait. He wasn’t very friendly, and didn’t apologize for the long wait. Another thing I think Del Frisco’s is a better cocktail menu. I wish there was a better selection!

While the service was wonderful, the restaurant is directly on the corner of Santa Monica pier, and the food was not worth anything near what they charge.

The patio was freezing and the heaters were not working; no propane. Unfortunately, the food and service was both mediocre. Not a pleasant dining experience and I highly recommend not going.
