This giant hollow cavern, an abyssmal eatery brings shame and tears to a city already spoiled and vandalized by corporate nonsense. The food here is safe, is simple, is decent. Nothing about the place, the people, the managers, the decor and design is unique. Absolutely nothing on the menu or anything here is amazing or a "must have" or even has any substain, character, or life infused into it. Even the music incessantly chanted in the background screams with banality. The idea behind this establishment seems to not offend anybody rather than have new and exiciting dishes that tantalize the palate. It's "Texas Hospitality" is so utterly contrived and calculated it feels insincerly cold and I felt like the waiter, who they make get dressed up in tuxedo's (how Texas is that?) feel like they're feeling off a script of a hallmark movie of the week. Del Frisco's to me was like a glorified Applebee's, where I'm paying top dollar to be in an absolute souless corporate environment.

I went here last night for dinner with my boyfriend and his brother. It was the first time for my bf and myself. The service was friendly, and our waiter was amazing, full of reccomendations and smiles. They serve you fresh hot loaves of bread which you are to break, not cut! The bread is amazing and its hard not to fill up on the fresh ones they keep bringing to your table. We started off with the shrimp cocktail and crab cake. Do not be fooled with the listing of crab cakes as you only get one. Though they were delicious I thought it was a bit unreasonable to charge $19 for one cake. We had a wonderful half bottle of merlot to go along with our filet mignons. These steaks melted in our mouths. They were cooked to perfection and so flavorful. For sides we had the Spinach supreme and the potatoes Au gratin, also very good. Though we were stuffed we couldn't resist dessert and had the crisp chocolate souffle cake which was just decadent heaven on a plate. Though the place is a bit pricey, it has to be the best steakhouses in overall experience that I have been to in the city.

I have gone there about 10 times and every time has been amazing. The steaks are always perfectly cooked and the sides are to die for. Try the house salad. It has 2 perfexctly cooked and seasoned pieces of bacon on it that melt in your mouth.

If you can't get to Peter Luger's in Brooklyn, GO HERE! I've never had anything but truly excellent food and service. Try the blue cheese dressing - oh my gosh. It's expensive, but worth it.

I went for my second visit on 12/18/06. Unfortunately this time's experience was not as good as the first time back in May 06. The first time I had a great dining experience, the food was great, the waitress was super nice and friendly. This time the service was not so great, we order bottle water, but the waitress only fill our glasses up and walk away with that bottle instead of leaving the bottle at our table. Many of our neighbor table had their bottle water on their table. I was a bit puzzled by this different treatment. Perhaps it had something to do with my guests being foreigner? After the first glass of water, we didn't get any refill after that. Even toward to the end of the meal when we requested for water (that's right, no one fill our glasses while they were empty through out the meal), she only brought tap water to us. I didn't make any objection because I didn't want to make a scene and upset my 2 guests. When the bill come, of course we were billed for the full bottle of water. Food wise, crab cake still was great, Kobe rib eye steak was good too, BUT please don't order the fry oysters if you don't want to waste you $$. The oysters were tiny (average size 0.75"~1") with way too much batter. So much batter, I can't even taste the oyster. Will I go back again? Yes, but only if I were not the one paying.

Atmosphere is your traditional proper steakhouse, very efficient service, good drinks ... food amazing! We went with another couple and all our steaks came out PERFECTLY. Our appetizers from the raw bar was simply the freshest and the crab cakes w/ cajun sauce to die for !!! No really. Our bill for 4 came out to around $400 ... so it's not really cheap BUT well worth it :) One of our faves.

I went here one Valentines day with my boyfriend,his brother and his girlfriend at the time; I would have to say that the food was not worth the price. The meat was dry and tasteless we were all pretty disappointed considering how pricey the restaurant is. I don't recommend this place to anyone Although it did seem like it had a nice bar.
