Service was great & food was pretty good as well, just a bit overpriced.
Everything was amazing.
I've eat at the Del many times in Denver CO. The Del Frisco restaurant in Santa Monica should be called Applebees.
The service at this location was great. The food was average with undercooked grilled vegetables.
Horrible. The table, plates, and cups were all dirty when we arrived to the table. By dirty I mean crumbs & left over food on the table and plates. The cups were filled with bottled water & had dark colored bits floating in it. The service was beyond disappointing, we eventually stood up and walked to our server to pay for the bill because he hadn’t approached us for so long. The food was mediocre. I came to this restaurant about 2 years ago and was absolutely shocked at the lack of quality.
Service was tedious at best . Every diner in the restaurant seemed to be looking for a server. We almost had to beg for any food to be brought to the table and any request took 10-20”. Food was marginal . Would give 0/5 rating if I could . Forget this place !
Service was a bit slow. Took a while to be greeted by server after we were seated. Would have preferred water while looking at the menu, not after we ordered. Food was extremely delicious, but plate presentation was poor.
New Year’s Eve celebration. It was great. Food was good and ambiance was fun!
The worst New Years experience I’ve had so far nonethelesss dining out !!! Took 30 min to get a glass of whatever my appetizer was out before my drinks ! The music was terrible service was terrible Food was blah no flavor I was so disappointed!!! Sadly I won’t be back !
Amazing staff and great people
Our server Justin did an outstanding job and the lobster rails were delicious as were the mushrooms and salad. The steak filet medallion feature was also excellent. We sat on the patio and all of the heaters weee working. The ambiance there with the sunset and beautiful view of the pier made it a special New Year’s Eve! We appreciate excellent food with a casual vibe.
I visited with my sister for lunch on NYE 2021 around 3 pm the restaurant was not crowded or really busy. The hostess that greeted us was my major problem she was not very welcoming and she got an attitude when we simply asked if we could have booth seat instead only because we wanted to be near a window and be able to see the television. Personally, I didn't think it would be a problem since it was 3 pm and the restaurant was not crowded. She was in the process of telling us no when her boss overheard, came over, and corrected her right in front of us and I guess she didn't like that cause she rolled her eyes and sat us by the window and walked off no enjoy your meal or anything. Our waiter however KEVIN!! was amazing he was very nice and really cool he answered all our questions and was very attentive to our table. So he made up for the rude introduction. The food was amazing and perfectly cooked I had salmon and it was great!!! The drinks were good too. I will go back again however my 2 cents is to get some training going for the hostess staff because they are the first people you meet when you enter the restaurant and if they get the hostess I got you will definitely lose business
The menu online wasn’t the menu that I was given. I booked this restaurant for a great vegan burger. It was a Christmas menu with limited choices.
Very nice server. The wine is a plentiful serving as is the kid’s meal.
Reliable menu, quality food, and good service make Del Fresco’s a great dining experience. Unfortunately, their “grill” is not the same experience at all. I was under the impression that the difference is in ambiance and having a limited menu, but the items ordered were the same as what I’ve ordered at the original Del Fresco’s and the quality was not the same.
Save your money and go to the original, not the “grill”.
12 person group dinner
Service extremely disorganized
I would chalk it up to COVID - but did the same-sized dinner at Water Grill the next night. They were 100% dialed in.
Great atmosphere and food is good. A nice variety of menu items. Service was ok not amazing but still good.
Our party appreciated the food flavors and great service received. We had steak, salmon, shrimp, and hamburger and everyone was pleased. For dessert the coconut cream pie rocked.
Food and service were fantastic, and the location is great what else could you ask for.
Service was a bit so, but given the challenges with restaurant hiring, it's understandable, but it did test patience.
My steak was not cooked right. Not how I asked for and took forever to get my food. It was very slow, even when I requested sugar for my coffee as well check. I will not be returning
Great place to meet up with friends. Indoor and outdoor tables are available and the location is great. The kale and Brussel sprout salad with grilled salmon was excellent and all other people in my group really enjoyed their meal selections as well!
Delicious steak egg rolls & deviled eggs. Great service from Lauren!
My family and I had a wonderful dinner at Del Frisco Grille. It was the night before the big game in LA and there were a lot of Steelers fans! I could tell that they were impressed too by the beachside restaurant. Our server, Andrew, was very accommodating and knew the menu very well. He made good recommendations to my daughter who didn't thinks she was very hungry but cleaned her plate! My son to whom I call a beef connoisseur loved the ribeye and I could tell because he ate all 16oz! I can honestly say that the mac and cheese side is one of the very best I've had and I've had plenty of different mac and cheese sides. It's good to see that people are coming back to restaurants and that staff is coming back too. "Grille" was manned well and even one of the managers came to check on us, nice touch!
Was was average at best. Lacked seasoning. Portion size for price didn't add up for some items.
It’s an absolutely lovely dining experience. I find that Del Frisco‘s, they just do it right. Whether it’s the double eagle inNYC or this lovely beach side restaurant, always the best. The best meal, service, presentation, OK best bread pudding ever… I don’t know, we go as a group for holidays when we can, any get together imaginable. At a time when many restaurants are stumbling with new servers, new staff, new everything, bless their hearts, DF trains their people, doesn’t set them loose before they’re ready, again, they just do it right. It is never a “hit or miss“ No it’s not inexpensive, but it’s never disappointing. That says so much.
Went for a birthday celebration; I had indicated as much in the reservation. The food was cold (all of it) and they ended up reheating the steaks and dousing them with butter. It was a bit upsetting especially given the price, but we didn’t let it ruin our night.
Other finer details- We ordered a salad as an appetizer and salad plates were not provided, we ended up eating on tiny bread plates. Then, I asked for a birthday treat and the waitress never brought anything over. I wasn’t expecting something free, but after a cold expensive meal, seems like it’s the least they could do. Either way, not sure why the reservation asked if it was an occasion or why the waitress said she’d do something and then didn’t.
TLDR: It’s not worth it at all. I Will not go back.
My steak was cold, my mashed potatoes were cold. My son’s steak was under cooked. My daughter’s Mac and cheese had no flavor. The chef needs to taste food. This restaurant does not compare to Del Frisco’s double eagle in San Diego.
Overpriced. $27 for a tiny Cobb salad. Bacon was all fat. A few small pieces of chicken.
Had to ask repeatedly for bread.
Freezing cold inside seating.
Food was overpriced and blah. Service was good.
Need a few more vegetarian options please.
One of my favorite brunch spots, however was very disappointed to discover that brunch is no longer being served.
Loved my server Alexis she was the best 🥰
Great food. Brussels sprouts were cold but everything tasted great. Service was great and very accommodating.
The food was edible which for the very touristy location is probably about what could be expected. The service was horrible. Our original waiter seemed like she would have been good but her shift was ending. She told us she gave our drink order to our new waiter but he forgot or it didn’t happen. Our drinks came out at least 30 minutes after we ordered them and then the food came a minute later. The steak was rare instead of medium. Bread with the crab cakes had been reheated and burned. The only time the waiter made any move was when it came to payment.
The food and cocktails were delicious.
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.
