Food was great as always...bartender served our table...very attentive. Will be back again...
Three good and service was excellent!
Experienced slow service after 10pm to the point the kitchen nearly closed before we could place an order.
Great food, but our service was a bit slow.
Our server was pleasant but clearly over worked. It took her a very long time to check on us. We weren’t even finished drinking and she practically through the bill at us and walked off. My steak was chewy and not very flavorful. I won’t be returning to this location.
Typically I’d give 4-5 stars across the board here but the service was very poor this time. Having been here more than any other establishment the past five years it was quite disappointing.
The service was absolutely amazing and our server was so kind and efficient. The food came out in timely fashion and was so high quality. I will definitely be coming back.
Excellent experience overall. Great wine list, food and service. Surprisingly perfect dinner and evening!
It was our daughter’s 18th birthday. We were seated at a booth. The beginning was great. Greetings from the host, and she sat us down. The server, on the other hand, was decent at first, but he was almost nowhere to be found at our table as time passed. Reminder, it wasn't that busy at the restaurant. He was too occupied with other tables where all caucasian guests showed up. We were just very disappointed in how we were treated. The food... We ordered two steaks prepared MEDIUM. One showed up medium-well, and another one was SUPER rare. The server took the food back, and he said he would bring the new one. BUT he brought back the one we had. NOT NEW PLATE BUT OLD REHEATED steak.
The only reason why I'm giving two stars is that one of the managers came to greet us at the end for coming in.
Overall not going back because for their servers eyes, we are not deserving to get a service from them.
Terrible service. If you are understaffed then simply do not seat all your tables. Problem solved
Although they seemed to be pretty well staffed, it took over 5 minutes for our server to appear once we were seated.
Food: Deviled Eggs were great (4 on the plate); Kale & Brussels Salad was great! Wedge Salad was a bit small (which is odd because iceberg lettuce is the cheapest there is). Crispy Artichokes never came so we asked to remove those from the bill. Nutella Bread Pudding was more like a chunky muffin and was rather dry plus you really couldn’t taste the Nutella. Manhattan was a bit too sweet.
It was my daughters 2nd birthday. They did their best to accommodate us.
WAITED 32 MINUTES SEATED NO ONE EVER CAME TO THE TABLE OR ACKNOWLEDGED US...!!!
My daughter and I both ordered the filet mignon cooked medium. Both of our steaks came out rare. I sent mine back to be refired and still came back almost cold in the center. Roasted broccoli came out crunchy, charred in a few spots but mostly not cooked at all. Steaks lacked seasoning … no zip or butter sauce. I will say our waitress was very kind and attentive. She was not the issue at all. The prices are similar to Fleming’s, Ruth Chris and Morton’s but the food absolutely is not. We left very disappointed for spending 160 for two people.
Del Friscos is consistent. And consistently good food. Solid. This location is a great one. The service was great.
Delightful wait staff
We had a very good waiter that was very attentive all of our needs all throughout dinner. The atmosphere was lively and the food was very tasty.
It was such a fun birthday experience
Okay, so Kelly our server was fabulous. Welcoming and engaging. The food was what should be expected for the Del Frisco brand. The noise level was beyond tolerable. The music from the Bose Speakers above our table was set at the highest volume possible. Also, the noise from the kitchen was constant. Kelly explained it best as a regular complaint from customers and something someone in the back of the restaurant controls.
Amazing steak dinner and my husband had the ribs that filled him up
Host at the front was very very very rude, I could’ve slapped him in his mouth. White dude needs to be fired as a host.
Enjoyed a nice salad and steak dinner with friends.
Terrible wait service. Worst in years. Vagrants stealing food off the tables on the patio.
Del Frisco‘s was a big disappointment.
There was almost nobody in the restaurant, but I had to go up walk to the waiter and ask for the menu.
The music was incredibly loud for the first 1/2 hour.
The food quality did not met the price tag.
I have been there many times over the last 10 years.
This was the last time.
The place is not managed well.
If it hadn’t been for the fact my reservation was changed from 12:00 to 12:30, I would say outstanding but even the day before it was confirmed for 12:00. All our plans were made on this and at 10 am I got a call about the time change. They told me the restaurant changed the opening time a week prior. So why the same day notification?
Love the restaurant and the food but please do not do this again. Thanks!
Service was horrible, menu didn’t have drinks like they normally do they had it on a separate menu and when I asked for it they gave me an alcoholic menu also I asked for a steak didn’t ask how I wanted my meat when meat come out it tasted like a burger patty also water was disappointing it tasted like tap water our waiter never asked how we were doing not once like they normally do only good thing they had was the fries overall everything they gave us was terrible quality. If I could give this place 0 stars I would.
As always! Great food, drink and atmosphere!
Interior very inviting. Waiter seemed a bit annoyed and impatient we weren’t ready with drink orders. Drinks were good. Food average. Prices high for quality. Convenient to the beach and third street promenade. Surprised a small menu options. Not too interested in returning. Too many other places to go in Santa Monica.
Fantastic location as it’s at the corner of Ocean Ave and the front opening of the Santa Monica Pier. Ribeye was excellent!! I love their lemonade too. Santa Monica Pier was packed on this Sunday and getting there was a crawl. We were actually late for our reservation but when we got there they still honored it. It’s best to just go park at the big public parking building and just walk 2 blocks to the restaurant.
Service was terrible, price was high for what we got. Overall just not a good experience.
Food was great as always The cheesesteak egg rolls are 🔥🔥🔥 Service was Great
Good was great. We reserved outdoor and then we’re told we couldn’t be accommodated. our waiter was ok but not friendly
Food was great. Loved the scene. The drinks are expensive and light on the pour.
salmon caesar salad was good. Took us to a nice booth.
Our trip to Santa Monica for LSU vs UCLA. Good food for a mid-level steakhouse. Drink prices quite reasonable. Service was excellent. Even a discount when part of the order was incorrect. Worth trying if nearby and convenient on Ocean Drive by the Pier
Our waiter was not very attentive and the menus were out of date. Instead of notifying us of a particular change, the waiter just brought us something we did not order. They did end up comp-ing that item, but the communication could hace been so much better. Particularly for a $100+ bill
The food was wonderful. Our server Desiree was great. The kitchen was super slow though. Which we understand during these times. It took 50 minutes for the appetizers to hit the table, and dinner like another 40 after that. However with that said the meal was delicious. Hopefully they can get back to normal soon.
For a steakhouse, steak was not tender at all. Food was just ok.
Good food. Service was lacking. Right on beach so great ambience.
Understated decor inside, compared to other Del Frisco’s, but the food and service were great. I would recommend it!
