    Food is always super solid. The steak is terrific and tasty every time. I stick with the ribeye and the truffle Mac and cheese! Service is always a little dicey but they try. The table I had last time was sticky and kinda gross for what I expect at Del Friscos but the food is so solid I will keep going!

    Menu very lacking. Food bland ok at best. Hostess rude and not very accommodating. Cold and not clean environment. Table was sticky and seats were dirty. Bathroom was horrendous. Manager was great. Really liked him and waiter was good as well. But sorry won’t be back.

    Waiter was completely unprepared to be doing his job; poor command of the English language, the menu, how to set a table for steak (think no steak knives) and zero knowledge of the bar options. Must do better.

    Valentines Day! A group of animal rights protesters came in and almost completely ruined the night. Staff did what they could to remove them but they couldn’t do much.

    Despite putting down for indoors and not outdoors they sat us outside. Had to stand back inline to get the hostess to change it inside. Service was slow at first, but still moving…than came the last part of the meal and it was really really slow. If they had good service our dinner would probably of been half the time, but felt like a lot of waiting. In the middle of dinner a bunch of protestors came in to the restaurant and started yelling on a bull horn, carrying signs about don’t eat meat and another one with a TV showing animals in cages. I understand somethings happen, but you could tell that the management did not have it under control. Nothing like Valentines and a bunch of protestors walking around a restaurant while you are eating. They were probably there for a good 15-20 minutes. Than one was yelling assault. Afterwards didn’t see any manager go around apologizing or anything. Not even the waiter said anything. Just seemed like the norm. Than a portion of the restaurant cleared and more people came funneling in.

    My ribeye and my boss New York steak was not at the caliber of other local steakhouses. We compared them to Dennys or Norms steak. It was unfortunate because we could have gone to other places and been satisfied. Paying over $500.00 bucks for 3 is a bit expensive for the experience. I always either finish my steak or bring it home I left this one behind.

    Del Friscos on christmas day. They had a special holiday menu. All of the food was very good. It was busy. The Manhattan cocktail in the menu was cloying and has to be sent back. They were good about it.

    Extremely happy with our dinner experience. Love the location - will be great for outdoor dining at sunset in the summer. Inside, the decor/mood is also relaxed but nice. We ordered multiple appetizers - all were delicious, as were our main courses. Service was great. Only tiny critique is that the dessert menu is a little limited. We enjoyed the lemon cake. Overall, great value for the money. Will definitely be back again soon.

    We came in last minute as a party of 8, requesting a private room on a Saturday hint at 6pm. I was immediately called by the manager offering the room for a set fee based on guest count which was expected. We had a wonderful and productive dinner, the waiter was fantastic, food was delicious and they closed the door and turned down the music. A perfect evening.

    Can’t beat the outside patio area right across from the Santa Monica pier at sunset, gorgeous. Had Thanksgiving dinner here and it was perfect. The Turkey was tender and delicious as was the Ribeye. Waiter was busy but always came back to check on us with refills and if we needed anything. Excellent experience.

    Absolute the most overpriced, poorest service and worst quality of food venue I have ever been too. Took 15 minutes to get just 5 waters. I had 5 jumbo scallops for $57.00 dollars which were anything but jumbo, my mom did not get her wine until half way thru the main course after we flagged down the waitress. We ordered 2 New York stakes with mashed potatoes and the gravy was turkey gravy ?????Just do not go there....They are horrible. Many other places to spend your hard earned money. FIVE THUMBS DOWN>>>> OR MORE>>>>>>JUST HORRIBLE FOOD. $300.00 FOR S..T.........
