I was recently taken here as part of the recruiting process by an investment bank. The food was of great quality, especially the chilled shrimp with three different sauces and the jumbo lump crab cakes, which had almost no filler. But my filet was no better than what I'd had the night before at Nick & Stef's, and definitely not as good as what I'd eaten the week before at Capital Grille. Plus, Capital Grille is a lot quieter, and service is significantly more solicitous. On my own dime, I'd go to Capital Grille over Del Frisco's any day, but Del Frisco's definitely has been people watching, what with the overabundance of white guys in power ties.

Aside from the superior service, the food here is nothing to rave about. The rib eye steaks we ordered tasted like "top choice or angus" rather than prime meat served by Peter Luger and Sparks. The lump crab meat was very good as was the potato au gratin. The specialty seven layer lemon cake tasted like Sara Lee. Also, my wife told me the lamb chops were dry and tasted gamy. The place was packed with what appears to be tourists and people who like to look at themselves in the mirror a lot.

It's hard to pass up working in the same building as Del Frisco's. Their ribeye is extremely tasty. Service has always been up to par. One thing I do have an issue is the cost. Dinner for two is never cheaper then $200. Their wine list is great but they do not offer many by the glass. They should offer more inexpensive bottles of wine.

I was given a $100 gift card to this restaurant, and after about 1 year I decided that it was time to cash it in. I made a reservation (not necessary but recommended during peak hours) and after arriving I didn't have to wait long before I was seated (party of 2). My first impression of this restaurant was that it had a very beautiful decor. The dark hard wood and soft lighting really attracted me. However, it was also very crowded (as expected) and quite noisy. I had often heard that Del Frisco's was a premier steakhouse, so I was very excited to try their steak. I had a ribeye steak and my company had a sirloin steak. Allow me to mention here that there are no entrees as you are normally used to them. Usually when you go to a restaurant and ask for a steak (for example) you get some sides with it (rice, potatoes, etc.), but at Del Frisco's, that $30 or $40 steak that you buy comes alone. All of the sides have to be purchased seperately. They also have a very good wine menu, but very few wines are available by the glass. The food itself was quite good, but to be honest, I have had steak that tasted just as good at Outback Steakhouse, and for much less. The service was also subpar. Our waitress was very nice, but once she took our order we pretty much did not see her until it was time to get the bill. Also, if you want to use the bathroom make sure that you have a few singles in your pocket. The restaurant owners felt that the patrons needed help using the restroom, so you will have someone in there opening the stall doors, and passing you the hand towels. On the sink there is a very noticeable container for tips. This made me very uncomfortable, especially because I didn't have any small bills to give him. Anyway, I would say that it's worth trying once if you're interested, but there was nothing special about this place, so I probably will never return.

My friends and family gathered here last Thursday evening for my boyfriend's birthday, and had the best steaks of our lives - No joke! I had the mouth-watering filet steak while my boyfriend had a new Ribeye with the bone. Everyone at the table agreed it was great. Our waitress was pleasant and her service was smooth and impeccable. But, the kicker to our evening was plainly hearing the maitre de telling the waitress to "get them up" when we had literally just gotten our coffee and were waiting on dessert. We had been there only a little over an hour - Mind you he did this directly beside our table. Tacky.

If you like loud atmoshepheres and great steak this is a great place for you. I love the rib eye. I have found the service to be solid and consistent.

If I was to die tomorrow, this is where I would have my last meal. I have been here countless times and I dine in the city very often. The service is second to none, the atmosphere is amazing for this city. It is very lofty and the feeling is very gregarious. The food is amazing, order the mac and cheese! It is not on the menu but is amazing!
