It took over an hour to get our food for a party of 2. Two tables (party of 3 and party of 4) that were sat well after us were served there meals before us. They received there desserts as we were being served our food. The waiter said the manager would come over and talk to us and no manager even came. Terrible experience and I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone.

It was delicious and the food was great. It was just so loud outdoors to have a romantic vibe. Also, we were seated in the very furthest booth along the Main Street, which did not have a heater near the table so we were both freezing for the entire meal.

Great service and great atmosphere. Mac and cheese was good. Ribs were mediocre at best. Expect sub par food for the price, may be some items that are really great however. Expensive but it’s Santa Monica. 6.5-7/10

Comparing it to the Del Frisco restaurant...there is no comparison, the restaurant is by far better. The food was something that I could get from any mid-level restaurant, nothing special about it at all. The sides were mediocre, but the cocktails were good. No complaints about the service, it was very good.

One of the best steakhouses! Everything from the unique appetizers to the delicious sides pair so well with a quality steak. I was shocked that the bill was so cheap in comparison to the other big-name steakhouses. I think this is the best bang for your buck if you want a classy night out and a nice steak.

Good experience for COVID protocols. Good service and good food. Requested standard seating (indoor seating) but was told it was unavailable due to first come first serve. Didn’t understand why it’s an option if it’s a FCFS option.

First visit to Santa Monica in over ten years and were deciding between Water Grill and Del Frisco's. At the last minute, noticed some less than desirable reviews for Del Frisco's so cancelled reservation and tried to reserve at Water Grill. By the time I returned to reserve at Water Grill, the one spot available had been taken. I called Del Frisco's and requested cancelled reservation to be reinstated. They were very accommodating (Feb 13) and held the reservation.

After arriving ten minutes early, we were seated in twenty minutes. They opened up one of the back wine rooms with (3) entry points. The area was quaint and small, which was a nice alternative from the hustle and bustle in the patio areas.

In all, we were more than ecstatic in maintaining with Del Frisco's. The food was excellent, the wait staff (Andrew specifically) was outstanding, above board, and going out of his way to provide an upgrade when our 3rd round of food orders was delayed.

Highly recommend and will look to visit Del Frisco's in other cities.

We arrived early for our reservation and the restaurant was fully seated. Our genial host politely assured us we would be seated at the time of our reservation. We were. The first server (Daniel), who was ending his shift shortly after we were shown to our table, was professional, friendly, attentive and delightful, as was our server for the remainder of this exceptional dining experience (Eric). Our cocktails were perfectly crafted, the menu broad enough to be interesting but not overwhelming, the food sensational. The wine by the glass list is diminutive but there are excellent choices at fantastic price points for the value. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Paul Hobbs California Malbec and I could not have ordered a better wine than the Orin Swift blend to pair with our aged NY strip. The crispy Brussels sprouts with bacon were terrific and don’t get me started on the Cheesesteak Eggrolls. Just order them.

Questions about the menu were answered honestly and without hesitation. This team clearly likes being part of the collaborative effort at Del Frisco’s Grille and they all, obviously, take pride and enjoy their work. We will return and highly recommend foodies to add this eatery to their list. It is far better than any of what might be considered competition (Fleming’s, Morton’s, etc). Go!

The ONLY negative aspect was one of the two desserts we ordered (it was Valentine’s Day, after all). The olive oil chocolate cake with caramel sauce was dry and not redolent of chocolate, even though it was the right shade of dark brown. Eric was sincerely apologetic and, without us asking, removed the dessert from our check.

The drinks and appetizers were fine, the steak was very good though. The service was off; they brought salads before our drinks and steaks before our wine, and we ordered desert to go and they forgot about us so it was sitting inside until we got up at asked about 30 minutes later. Think it may have just been them getting back into the rhythm after reopening. It’s also valentines weekend and they didn’t have any champagne.

It was just the second night of outdoor dining being reopened so i understand not being fully prepared but it’s winter and many of their heaters were not working so it was cold and uncomfortable. My steak was under cooked- so i left half it.

We had a fabulous family dinner on Sunday evening. We sat outside on the covered patio and the heaters made it very comfortable. Max was extremely attentive, friendly, and a wonderful waiter! Our entire meal was delicious including all of the salads, steaks, and ahi tacos. He even added a delicious pumpkin cheesecake on the house and made our entire dining experience truly wonderful! Thank you Max and Del Frisco’s Grille for an amazing dining experience!

When we got to the restaurant they wanted to sit us at the worst table ever no heaters, since you have to sit outside that didn’t work for me, and the waiters comment was well that the only table I have.. well maybe you could have offered to drag a heater over to the table! A genius solution well I’m not going to do your job for you so we went to the IVy next door with plenty of Heaters and waiters who understand service

We ordered a bottle of Cabernet and the waiter came back 10 mins later saying they were completely out of Cabernet. Then we ordered crab cakes and waited for about 20 mins then the waiter told us they were out of crab cakes. So we ordered egg rolls and they were very bland and unappetizing.
