I was here for a business dinner and there were a few highlights and a few lowlights. The shrimp cocktail was excellent and the wine selection was nice. The dinner salad was halfway decent, the strip of bacon on it stood out. Other than that, the filet I ordered was way undercooked, I ordered med. rare and it came out extremely rare, the mashed potato was dry and plaster-like. One of the sauces on the filet trio was a crab something or other, the plasticky hard translucent casing was left in it and I kept biting down on these, constantly picking them out as I wnt along, not appetizing. All the food was lukewarm as if it was sitiing on a warmer for 10 minutes. The dessert was decent, strawberry cheesecake was light and fluffy, nice crust on it. The service was so-so, nice wait staff, but the runners who delivered our food basically slinged everything down at us, pig-in-the-trough like, here you go donkey...eat and get out. I heard a couple of staff getting into little tiffs all around the restaurant actually, basically arguing in front of customers. Thank god I didn't pay for my meal, I don't think I would return if it were my own money.

Here's the scene: large tables of young corporate types, many wearing nametags. Knowing New Yorkers are not among the customers. This is part of a national chain. Someone has a very heavy hand with the pepper shaker; my steak (and potatoes) were larded with it, making it almost inedible. Very high ceilings & no carpeting = very noisy. It's as relaxing as dining in the hallway of an airport. Service very gracious, but they "forgot" to give us the prix fixe menu. Never again!

I celebrated my birthday there, and it was the best. Their service was very attentive, I think we had like 7 people waiting our table. It turned out to be a exceptional evening and they even sent us a thank you note for dining at their restaurant.

real new yorkers dont really go here unless it is for a work event- mostly finance/wall street/suit people as the crowd which i try to avoid when eating with friends and not for work BUT i still find this to be my favorite steak in the city, and i've eaten at most of the big names. i dont know what it is, it's just my favorite. potatoes au gratin are delicious. definitely a lot of butter and salt here but you sign up for it going to a steakhouse and it's not overpowering...it's so worth it. wines are incredible. everything worth the price to me, and the price is pretty high. staff is great, kind and knows what their doing. bar downstairs gets very crowded but the drinks are great. definitely worth trying.

I just went there on Monday June 21st for the first time with my uncle, cousin and boyfriend and when I tell you we had the best dinner ever, I am not exaggerating. Let me start with the service first...AMAZING! Our waiter was great and our wine server was extremely educated on all the different types of wines and was a sweetheart. The food was outstanding. We shared a cold seafood platter on ice..the bacon and blue cheese salad and lets not forget the melt in your mouth steaks..2 Filet Mignons on bone and 2 Prime strip steaks. We ordered it to feed 4 people with also a large lobster tail. I feel spoiled and I dont think any other steakhouse can compare to this one. It is very expensive but so worth every single dollar. If you are looking to splurge some money and have an amazing experience then Del Frisco's is the place to go!!! I will be back ASAP.

Went on 6-16-10 with 4 other guys. Got there early and went straight to the bar. The bar scene was lively and bartender was very attentive. When sat the waitress was very bubbly and informative. Our drinks were refilled quickly throughout the night. Ordered the onion ring for an appetizer but it was the biggest disappointment for the night. Breading was dry and onion rings were cold. I had the bone in ribeye which was very good and cooked to a perfect medium rare however it did have a bit too much pepper on the crust. The cream spinach was a little chunky and had too much smoky flavor. Not used to having it that way so I would say it was ok. The Potatoes Au Gratin and Mac and cheese were very good. The Cheese Cake was average. Overall I'd go back because the atmosphere and service. I had higher expectations for the food but not bad.
