A quick tip for anyone who eats here: ignore the hoards of tacky people. From the waitresses that dress in a questionable fashion to the thoroughly touristy patrons mixing with the boisterous Wall Street set, this is not a refined crowd?was that Ruben Studdard I just saw? But beyond the B-list celebrities and thick Jersey brogues exist some of the best steak you will find in an already crowded steakhouse scene. Forget Lugers! Don?t even think of mentioning Sparks or the Palm. The best steak in NY belongs to Del Frisco?s. Order the strip. Perfectly cooked, tender and moist, this wonderfully spiced cut will make even the most ardent tree lover reconsider the merits of vegetarianism. Medium rare here is as is should be, pink throughout with a well-charred exterior. The creamed spinach is rich and smokey, with the unexpected addition of little bacon bits. The cottage fries with Onions complete the cholesterol overload, but it is well worth it. While most come for the steak, the crab cakes make a terrific first course. Plump and fleshy, it runs a close second to Milos for the best crab cake in NY. Desserts are also quite good, particularly the chocolate cake, but if you eat everything you order, there is little chance you?ll want it.

Went on a Saturday night, atmosphere was nice. Service was very NY, waitress was short tempered (she's a server, get a grip). Dinner salad had a slice of bacon on it, good but not very original. Filet mignon was tender, rib eye was described as marbleized, but it was "all fat," the side dishes were tasty and enough to share. Saw Kid Rock at the bar, not sure if thats a + or a - ?

Did not mind the company and shop talk because lunch was delish...Bacon on top of the salad...key. Crab cakes were better than some I've had in Baltimore. Prix fixe lunch is the way to go...

Great food and great atmosphere (but only if you work in finance) this place is full of bankers maxing the corp AMEX. The food is great, and the place if always packed. If you dont go with 4+ people, you'll find Del Frisco's loud and annoying.

Best steak ever, NY strip RARE. Crab cakes amazing. Service was a little off.

I must say that this restaurant is worth every penny for its service and atmosphere, especially if you are sitting upstairs! The three people who I went with ate the filet mignon and found it absolutely delicious! However, If you are a vegetarian like me, don't order any type of fish because it was plain and tasteless. In any event, if you are on a budget go for the prixe fix menu because you get a choice of apetitizer, entree, and desert for only 30 bucks! Their selection of dessert is wonderful and they don't cheat you with quality or quantity!

In a city with the best restaurants in the world it is truly hard to be the BEST OF THE BEST but somehow the people at Del Frisco's have found a way to achieve that end. When DF first opened there was a lot of talk around town that "a bunch of Texans " had come to town and would fall on their face. The Texans did stumble at first, duly noted, then they cinched up their cowboy belts and took care of business. Boy did they take care of business. The food is the best in town, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is all a Manhattanite could ask for. Del Frisco's is the best, Texas Best, in New York City.
