Overall food was very good-Veal Chop. Ask for the price of the Lobster Tail (WOW). Crab Cake wasn't that special. Fabulous side items. Cheesecake light and wonderful. Extensive wine list. Great service. It was a bit noisy during the "afterwork drink" crowd.

Power people. This is where many come in Midtown West. The huge windows, the view onto the street, the martinis, the wine, the steaks, and the sheer scale of the place spell power lunch, romantic dinner, and expense accounts. Del Frisco's is actually named Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, but what's the importance in the name of "Double Eagle Steak House"? I get the part about the steak house, but what the hell is a double eagle and what does that have to do with beef? Shouldn't it just be Del Frisco's Steak House, or, hell, just Del Frisco's? A dumb name aside, a restaurant's quality will not be judged by this foodigator based on its name, but based on the restaurant itself. So we began with what must be the best damn crab cake in the City. What made this crab cake so exceptional is that it actually contained a lot of crab. No filler, no junk. Crab. And there was a not-too-spicy-cajun sauce around it. The Caesar salad contained no surprises, positively nor negatively. The wine list was well suited by the glass with a fair to middling selection by the bottle. Finally, there are the steaks. And that means one must choose. I chose a quite generously seasoned prime ribeye, which was possibly so well seasoned to add flavor to a non-dry aged piece of meat. Possibly not, but regardless it changed the taste of the beef. The Double Eagle Bone In Strip Steak didn't need so much spice as the bone added to the flavor. With all the usual sides, including a pile of onion rings that stood out.

First the good stuff: The steaks were very good, although a little over seasoned/salty. The spinach as well was especially recommendable. Now the disappointing stuff (keep in mind it was a busy evening): It was very noisy. We had to speak with constantly raised voices. I think there's a big difference between a lively atmosphere (good noise), and just plain poor design making everything ecco and amplify. This place has poor accoustics! The waiter was good and knowledgeable, but we waited an hour for our food to arrive. Balance the pros and cons with the price, I will not be coming back.

First time at Del Frisco's and will definately return. Absolutely the best meal we have ever had in New York and our waiter, Jeremy Holm, was exceptional. His help in choosing wine and dessert were icing on the cake. We wish we could take Jeremy along with us on our travels around the world. Best of the best does not adequately describe our experience at this exceptional restaurant.

Steak was over seasoned and management rude- won't return.

Good food i guess, my brother had kitchen foil on the underside of his steak. Steak had too much pepper even for a pepper lover. Not much on the menu other than steak and seafood (one chicken dish and one pork dish). Portions were huge though but felt rushed to fit the courses in. Not sure i'd go back.

I visit New York twice a year and always visit Del Friscos. The steaks are the best i have ever tasted, well seasoned and always cooked to perfection. The crab cake starter is also very good, and if you've got the room, try the lemon cake for desert! I've always found the waiting staff to very friendly and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble for them. It does get noisy at busy times, but this doesn't bother me as it adds to the atmosphere, although i guess some people might not like it. The prices are not cheap but it's well worth it!!
