I'm an international airline pilot looking for the perfect steak and whenever I visit NYC I head to Del Frisco's. Best steak in town.

At this upscaled Applebee's you will definitely get a great steak most of the time. The funniest part of your evening will be the fear in your server's eyes if you elect to stay longer than an hour and a half on a busy night. But you have to understand that they still have hundreds of guests to seat so they really need you to get out after you eat. If you complain about being rushed out, the managers will buy you a round of drinks at the bar or give you a free dinner for two some other night. Rest assured, the bad taste in your mouth when you leave won't be from the meal. (Del's food is nothing short of phenomenal). It will be from the feeling you get, that as long as they're making money, Del Frisco's couldn't care less whether you enjoy the experience or not.

Del Frisco's is great for a business meal - but I don't know why you'd go there otherwise. The steaks are okay - the crab cakes aren't nearly as good as they make them sound. Most of the seafood options are way oversalted or seasoned. The manager is also one of the rudest men I've ever met. Typical powerhouse scene, but really just a lot of air.

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.
