We asked for a quiet table both in making our reservation and upon arrival. This was a business meeting. We got surrounded by two tables with screaming children and across from us was a table of 10, so much for a quiet table!
The waiter was the "WORST Waiter" we have encountered in a long time. All he wanted to talk about was that he started his first job at 5:00AM. Service was slow and and lousy and he clearly was inexperienced or simply did not give a damn.
Food was average for them, it was never great but on par for this restaurant. Pandemic or no pandemic this restaurant is and has been on a decline for some time. Most of the problem stems from weak and inexperienced staff or simply people who don't care about providing good service. Prices are average but for my money there are simply better choices out there...we won't be back!
The final straw was there was a black gob stuck at the bottom of my coffee cup. In other words a dirty used cup was what he served us.

Food preparation and taste was excellent. Our server was nice and attentive. We were celebrating a special occasion- noted on our reservation and at arrival, despite no recognition or congratulations from anyone. Missed opportunity to elevate service and loyalty.

Had a great lunch indoors with my wife and daughter ; the only negative was that they had no beers on-tap as it was broken.

As usual the service was excellent. At first it seemed they might have been a little short staffed but our waiter and the overall experience was excellent. I visit this establishment regularly for business lunches. The entire crew does a great job.

We didn’t have a great meal unfortunately. First impression walking in, the hostess didn’t display any enthusiasm or a sincere welcome. Our first round of drinks took a very long time and when I asked the server to let us know what the features were he disappeared for a long period of time before coming back to read them off of his notepad. Our Filets were undercooked and we didn’t have silverware when they were delivered. My daughters “Chopped Steak” Entree was incredibly odd and I’ve never seen an entree like this. It was essentially a hamburger patty with grated unmelted cheddar cheese on top of it. There was no check back to being up any of the issues in a reasonable amount of time. Our server was a nice guy, maybe too many tables going at once but something Del Frisco’s needs to figure out. Expensive casual night out that underwhelmed every step of the way.

Steak was overcooked.
Business lunch, so no time to send it back and start over. Disappointed. They are short staffed because Biden pays deadbeats to stay home. Not really the restaurant's fault. Will be back to give them another shot.

Dillon greeted us with a welcoming smile and seated us. Lucky for us he was also our server. He knows the menu well and assured us we made great choices. Our drinks and Ahi tacos appetizer were prompt. Our meals were timed perfectly and delicious! Excellent Rib Eye! Dillon’s shift was ending so he introduced us to David who was accommodating and pleasant.
We drive 45 minutes from our home to dine at Del Friscos Grille, it’s worth it.

Del Frisco's Grille is our go to place for something special for me and my wife. We also do special occasions here. The food is out-of-this-world good and they are one of the few places that get a charred rare (Pittsburgh style) steak right.

Very nice and efficient staff that being said, the experience paled in comparison to their other locations. This is more of a fast food version there of and lacks in quality across-the-board as far as food and experience is concerned. The steak was subpar and the food came out cold. Food was sent back and came back cold again. Not acceptable for the price point or the caliber of their reputation as a whole.

I've eaten hear many times before and it's always been decent. Tonight was a different story. Women's restroom only has scalding water to wash your hands with. Steaks both came out about 20° under. The ribeye was extremely tough, definitely not USDA Prime. Despite having a reservation, they set us at a bar table which means limited service since the bartenders focus on mixing drinks and not waiting tables. Bartenders were yelling to their friends across the bar and their friends were yelling back. Didn't come across as a good place for a meeting, date, and or any special occasion for that matter. For $140 for 2 with no drinks, it was a huge waste of money and time. Not sure if I'll be back to give them another try after this horrible experience.

We both ordered salads. I ordered the shrimp Cobb and my husband ordered the Steakhouse. Both were excellent. Service was on the slow side, we may have had a new waiter. We’ll try it again.

Great quality and preparation. The charcuterie board was excellent, cheesesteak egg rolls was interesting, for starters. The Prime Rib Eye was seasoned just right and cooked at requested temperature. Waiter, Seth, offered a couple wine tasters to help with our wine choice. They were out of my first two choices. He also gave us a couple desserts at the end for our celebration. I would not order the sunset mojito again and probably not the Brussels sprouts ( I had better).

This place was a hidden gem! I can’t believe we waited this long to try it.
The service was excellent and the food was impeccable from the bread to the last bite.

Make sure you try the Ahi Taco appetizer. You won’t regret it!

Can’t wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!

Entering the restaurant, the main dining room was very loud, but we got seated in a large room on the side, which was fine. Our waitress, Kennedy was terrific, she was very cheerful and spot on with the service. We didn't have to ask for refills on our drinks, she saw that we were getting low and she brought us new glasses. We started our dinner with a Caesars salad which we shared, it was very good. My wife ordered the New York Strip. It was cooked and seasoned to perfection. It was a very delicious steak, one of the best I've ever had. I had the swordfish, that too was cooked to perfection, very very good. To finish our meal, we ordered the coconut cream pie. It was very delicious and we didn't leave any behind. The dinner at Del Frisco's was something we will remember for a long time, it was a very memorable dinner coming out of the lockdown for the pandemic.

Our steaks were over cooked (ordered medium-rare and got medium to medium well) and our kids meal came after our food. Our server was good, but we were disappointed in our food. It’s also disappointing that there was no lemon cake on the menu.
