I really enjoy Del Frisco's. They really try to accommodate guests. I go there often, but for special occasions, I always request a quiet table, and then they put me in the upstairs area. The steak is great, and they do it exactly as you request. Once it was a bit overdone, and they brought out an entirely new one, and my husband had the one they brought out earlier. As I said, they really strive to please. The bread was a disappointment, because it's like a cheap white bread with sesame seeds, though it is served hot. I love their chilean seabass, which is a huge cut and the best I've had in the city. And their crabcake is not great at all. Just a bunch of pieces of lump crabmeat squished together to form a cake. Small and expensive. Chocolate layer cake and lemon layer cakes are delicious. I love their lobster tails as well, which are gigantic but expensive. Active bar scene as well, at the entrance to the restaurant. It's mainly a business/after work type of establishment. Probably better steakhouses in the city, in the area, no less, but good for tourists who want good food.

I had heard good things about Del Frisco so decided to give it a try for a special occasion. Was seated 40 minutes late, and it wasn't even the weekend. The host and hostess had a huge attitude when I asked how long it would be, so the dinner definitely started on a poor note. The appetizers were okay - the crabcakes were amazing but other than that, nothing to rave about. Steaks were very good but sides were awful - creamed spinach was soggy, so was mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes were basically too peppery to eat. There are many options that are much better, especially for the money. I will not be going back.

My husband and I ate here after Wicked while in New York for our honeymoon. We had the Prime Rib, 8 oz. Filet Mignon, Potato Au Gratin, and Cheesecake along with a couple of glasses of Shiraz. My husband, an avid Texas steak-eater really enjoyed his Prime Rib and my Filet was to die for. I can't say enough about the Potato Au Gratin, though! It was absolutely amazing and was more than enough to share; served in a large dish with bubbly browned cheese on top. It could have been heaven on earth! The cheesecake was great, too. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, with a great view of Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and some beautiful Christmas lights. The interior is decorated fabulously - very elegant! The service was also great - very accommodating to our late arrival for our reservation and very kind. We will definitely return to Del Frisco's!

On 24 December 2007 my wife and I had dinner reservations and arrived on time. We were pleasantly received and shown to our table. We ordered the crab cake appetizer which was mediocre and basically substandard and mushy. We also ordered the salad wedge with Blue Cheese dressing. This too could be improved upon. We both ordered the 10 oz. carpet bagger Delmonico steaks which come with mash. The steak was the size of a large cookie was just adequate and certainly over priced for what you get. They were overly generous on the serving of mash which was fine. One good aspect of the place was our server was very pleasant and efficient. My wife and I are both professionals working and living in Midtown and As New Yorkers we will not be going back to Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House and we will not recommend it to others. We feel the restaurant relies on past successes and have given up quality of product. In closing there was nothing special about Del Frisco’s and one would do just as well in going to any production house restaurant. New York City has many, many fine steak restaurants and this is not one of them.

NOTHING compares to a Del Frisco's filet followed by the lemon iced cake from heaven. Throw in fabulous crab cakes and onion rings and you have a meal from heaven. The service is always pleasant and unobtrusive, no matter the crowd. A truly delightful dining experience. Easily the best overall dinner in New York.

After reading so many favorable reviews about this place, I decided to give it try because I enjoy steakhouses. I made dinner reservations and the first thing I noticed while strolling into the restaurant was the lighting or lack there of. It was very dark walking around this restaurant in the evening hours and the lack of sunlight outside didn't help much even if you decided to sit upstairs with a view. The menu was easy to read with large fonts to compensate for the poor lighting. I ordered the rib eye steak and my wife ordered the filet mignon. Both steaks were cooked close to our request but it was tough to tell due to the lack of lighting. The server had to use a mini flashlight for us to view our steaks just to make sure it was cooked properly. My steak tasted fine and so did my wife's steak. However, the issue I have was the rushed and spotty service. Before I had a chance to finish my side order of angel hair pasta, the waitress decide clear off our table without asking if we were done with our meals. My poor wife was in the bathroom at this time and she still had some steak left on her plate and wanted to doggy bag the pasta but didn't get the chance. This was rather rude and inconsiderate of the waitress. Also, the waitress failed to provide our table with water even though we requested several times. To make matters worse, our check was presented in the middle of our desserts which made me feel more rushed. Even before we finished our desserts, the waitress asked if I was ready to pay which really spoiled my evening because it was quite apparent that I was not done and still eating. I politely told the waitress that I would pay once I'm done eating and she claimed that she thought I was in a hurry. If I was the one in a hurry then I would have mentioned it but never once did I indicate that to my waitress. Once I was ready to pay, I placed my credit card into the slot and asked the waitress to take my check. However, she proceeded to wait on other tables and ignored me until I flagged down another waitress to take the check. So, what turned out to be a fine meal was ruined by this waitress who did not understand the basics about waiting tables.

ok im not the type of person to go out of my way to write a review but this place is awesome! They remembered my friends birthday and i breifly mentioned it. They made sure i got the wondow seat i wanted and everything. The food is amazing, tho the martinis are a bit pricey ( 14$ ) but hey, no big deal. The chocolate mouse is out out of this world! You must must eat here when visit. you cant beat the views. I can only imagine how nice it is around the Holidays. This is my new fav place to eat. Both times were perfect.
