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!
Great night out with friends! Service was great! Jenna was awesome! Food and wine were delicious! Will be back!!!
Good service. Particularly enjoyed the wedge salad
Really unhappy with my dining experience here. The service was not good and the food was mediocre at best. The waitress was friendly and sweet but she had too many tables and we had to keep asking other staff members for things. I was starving and I still thought my steak was gross. I ordered the Steak Frites. How can you mess up steak frites? I received an “8 oz” steak that was thinly sliced and poorly seasoned with chimichuri sauce smeared on top. The worst part was that it was cold. A cold medium rare steak. I regret that I didn’t eat at the restaurant up the block called Meat.
It’s right on the corner of the Santa Monica pier entrance, so heavy traffic walking along the sidewalk outside. There was a nice glass barrier on the patio, so it was really nice. Drinks were strong and food was excellent! Waitress was attentive and kind. I would recommend this place!
Steak was cooked perfectly medium and delicious. Salmon was amazing! Sides: mashed potato, Brussels, Broccoli, and truffle mac n cheese. The mac n cheese was lackluster. The rest of the sides were exceptional. Crab stuffed shrimp is a must.
Service was great.
Patio was great.
We will be back.
Decent food, indifferent service. Short story is that we were excited about getting to eat in such a highly rated restaurant. Location was great and interior was beautiful. We left very disappointed. A series of missteps culminated with us leaving without having been offered the birthday dessert I requested in my reservation (and reconfirmed by phone and reconfirmed on arrival). Cannot recommend eating here if you care about service.
I enjoyed the restaurant
Reserved 3 tables of four persons for an out of town family gathering of 12. Arrived and they only had two tables. They found another table, but 2 were outside, all were scattered. I reserved inside tables.
Family members felt rushed. There was no offer for dessert, only the check when barely finished dining. We’ve dined there in the past with no issues. I was disappointed and embarrassed.
Very average experience with average food and average service
The food was quite mediocre. The swordfish special was dry and under seasoned. And they were out of Sauvignon Blanc by the glass?! SRSLY?
Fun environment, delicious food, and lovely views!
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.
Went on the lite side tonight...shrimp cocktail, wedge salad and fresh catch of the day Halibut. Everything and everyone was great.
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
