Our reservation was at 8:45 the waitress took 30mins to serve us drinks. The floor manager was digging in his nose served food without washing his hand. We didn’t get a chance to eat because we end up leaving

Our server was nice and polite but to busy to be efficient. Our table butted up to the kitchen area so the music was loud to cover up the kitchen noise. It was the first night after the covid restrictions so the hostess didn’t allow us a booth next to an occupied one yet 30 minutes later all the booths were filled.

I called ahead and asked for a table with a good view but we still got sat in the corner not directly facing the street instead of upstairs by the window like I wanted. The waiter was friendly and very accommodating but the food was lackluster and not that good. The craving stuffed shrimp tasted extra fishy which is not good for seafood and the steak was rubbery. I was excited about my dessert but that was just okay as well. Great location but definitely not worth the $252 bill which included a $40 tip. I will not be returning.

Excellent for and service. Fabulous menu with a variety options to please every appetite. We had the ahi tacos which a mini crunchy taco shells stuffed full of avocado and lots of ahi. Four to an order. Absolutely delicious. My friend has the corn soup which she said had a little kick to it. Loved it. I had the Grille salad. It was a large salad. Could easily split with someone. Perfect amount of oil and vinegar dressing so it was very light. Perfect for a warm sunny beach day. Service was efficient and friendly. Our server was Daniel and he was delightful as were all of the staff we encountered. This is a must-do when you’re in Santa Monica.

Very loud environment, they under cooked one of our steaks and over cooked another. Disappointing, not the Del Friscos I am use to.

The food was great. Ambiance was nice and fairly quiet considering we were on the patio. Service was nice as well and the water was constantly refilled, which is always a plus on warm days!

Server James was polite. However, food delivery was slow. Had to ask to check our order on two separate occasions. Food was warm only. I booked this as a birthday celebration for my daughter and son in law who enjoy the same birthday. Nothing mentioned by the server, obviously wasn't communicated with him. Once I did, there was still no gesture for the celebration :(.

We ordered the ribeye along with a Cesar salad and the mushrooms…everything was perfectly prepared. The cocktails were very much to our taste. Especially enjoyed the slightly crispy crust on the ribeye.

Waiter was attentive and the assistant general manager was there in case anything was needed.

Took over an hour to get our food which was just lunch items. one order was incorrect and sent back. The server wasn’t genuine and kind of condescending.

Del Frisco’s looks very nice. However, the food portions are small and the service is horrible. My table waited ten minutes for water. The server forgot my friend’s burger, claiming they didn’t hear him order it. And the food was subpar at best. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

The food was awful. My burger came out cold, dry and very late. Someone’s salmon was basically raw. The drinks took so long to come out that ice had melted and we had to send back to get a new one. Would never come here again.

The service outside was slow and inattentive. It took about 15 minutes from searing for a waiter to come to our table. The portions were tasty but small. A disappointing dinner overall. It feels like a touristy place in general.

Had a Saturday night dinner reservation..was looking forward to it. Ordered the mix and match filet and lobster tail. I couldn't believe the little size of lobster. Looked more like a shrimp! Total rip off. Make sure not to make same mistake! Don't order the "cold water lobster fail" you will be disappointed
