Exquisite as always. One of the best steaks across NYC. The lobster bisque is a number one recommendation. Just avoid to be seated all the way to the end of the left side on the lower floor as it feels very cramped.

Terrific experience; we had my parents' 50th anniversary here and they took excellent care of us. They even arranged for me to prepay the whole bill so we never had to get a check and we could pick up the whole tab on behalf of the party. Also were very accommodating with regard to an unusual food allergy and varied dietary needs (i.e. vegetarian, gluten free, etc.) Highly recommend, and worth the price (which is high, but it's worth it.)

W went to Del Frisco's for our anniversary and thought it was fantastic. We will be back soon. The food was excellent and if possible the service was even better. We arrived at 6:55 for a 7:15 reservation checked in and sat at the bar for a drink. At precisely 7:15 our name was called and we were seated. When I made my reservation I put in a special request asking for a booth and was pleasantly surprised when we were accommodated. Additionally, when the waitress brought the wine list and menus she wished us a happy anniversary which was a nice touch. We shared the bacon appetizer (easily shareable) and a Cesar salad which were both delicious. We both had steaks (NY dry aged strip and a filet) and shared creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes. Everything was delicious. Then the waitress brought us over a dessert with a happy anniversary sign on it and a candle. A great experience which I'm sure to enjoy again.

Front desk exceptionally rude and dismissive, they were running approx 15 minutes late with bookings which is acceptable as it is very busy. When asking the front desk about our reservation(3 couples went before usall booked for 9pm),she was rude. After that, our name was eventually called, and a couple pretended to be us,tried to take our table! Again I had to mention to the lady that they've taken a bogus couple.
I felt the staff member didn't like the fact that I was asking why this was all happening . I hate to say it , but we were then given the worst possible table, stuck in the cold corner by the cashiers till and cloak room.
Our waitress was lovely though and the
Steak was amazing!
I will not be going back. It's a shame as I'm a visitor from the UK , who was celebrating my daughters 21st

Overrated and overpriced is the simplest way to express my feelings about this restaurant. We were made to wait for a full 2 two and a half hours for our meal. When we complained about the situation, the reaction of our waiter was nowhere near acceptable. We were offerred desserts as a compensation which helped to ease the pain somehow. Thanks for the desserts but İ advice the management to reconsider their service standards!

Del's is head and shoulders above any steak house in NYC or anywhere they are. First, the signature VIP cocktail is so delicious it seems like you are drinking dessert! The selection of appetizers ranges from salads to shellfish and everything is delicious. The crab cake is a must have. The selection and cuts of meat are extensive. The meat is always cooked perfectly to order and come out literally sizzling hot. The side dishes are amazing, the onion rings are crispy on the outside and soft inside. There is everything to love about Del Frisco's from the food to the ambience.

I've eaten here on several occassions and this has to be the worst experience yet. Seating was jammed, waitstaff was overwhelmed, drink was knocked over with management apology, seafood tower came out with the salad (poor timing), 3 undercooked steaks. The only bright spot was the lemon cake but even that couldn't overshadow the rest of the evening. I would have given a lower rating but folks reading this may think I was a competitive restaurant. I would not recommend this spot if your trying to impress anyone.

It was good, was happy with my meal. I just expected better based off of word of mouth reviews. I’ve had better steaks for equal or less money and the service could have been better for the type of restaurant that it markets itself to be. I would go back but I would not consider it to be one of the top 3 steakhouses in NYC as I’ve heard my friends tell me.

Although the starters were very good (crab cakes and mushrooms) the steak was highly dissapointing...it was very thick and boring. No sauce...felt like you cant eat more than three or four bites.also i asked for medium and it was rare. The man next to us got it very dry.

I've been a long standing patron of Del Friscos, and because it has been one of my favorite restaurants, my husband and I go every year for our anniversary. However, I must say this year was quite disappointing. The food was not up to par and the service was dissaponting as well. My steak trio was 3 portions of 4 oz filets which I requested medium rare. They were more on the medium side and honestly closer to 2 ozs. My husbands steak lacked flavor and was also mildly over cooked for medium rare. We are not complainers so this we were willing to let go. The most disappointing part came when the table next to us were bought out their order of a magnificent double bone in steak. Our server (though very attentive and quick as expected) failed to mention the double bone in steak recently added to the specials menu. He apologized with an "oh I forgot" but my husband left very upset and has not stopped speaking of it. Usually I don't post reviews but I am inclined to say we had a very disappointing dining experience and after 5 years of anniversary dinners, and 15 years of dining there overall, we will not be returning. A $400 dining experience for two should leave you happy and satisfied.

Made reservation for my son & his friends for 10 people (only had 9 tho) for a bday celebration.
Reservation was for 8pm. They arrived at 8:15 & was told 10 min wait. Almost 1-1/2 hour later they were finally seated but at a round table for 8. Not enough room for even 1 more & had to wait for square table next to them to finish & leave so they could push round & square table together.
Didn't get out til after 12am.
Food was as good as always but not happy with reservation situation.

I would have expected better then fair, especially given the pricing. I believe given the size of this restaurant, they are having difficulty maintaining the quality of the food and service. They are aware and they attempted as best as they could to continually apologize and offer drinks on the house. However that does not compensate for waiting an inordinate length of time for the meal to arrive , or the fact that the steak then needed to go back to kitchen since it came out rare to raw instead of medium rare while sides stayed on table getting cold. Very disappointing. I paid the bill but felt I worked and should have been paid for the hour plus wait for main course after the appietizer.

I have coming to Del Frisco's NYC since 2012. It has been a must while in NYC.
Still a pretty good establishment, but I have noticed the food quality go down as of late. My last two visits were disappointing from a food perspective. Steak was not as tender and very under cooked, sides were sloppy in appearance and salads look tired.
Just an FYI from a loyal customer.
Will probably not visit Del Frisco's the next time I am in NYC. I will probably try another steak house.

I come here with my boyfriend every October for his traditional birthday dinner. Eric G is the best waiter! Funny, attentive and very informative and knowledgeable of the menu while offering his personal opinions as well! Would love to request him as our waiter again next time. Aside from the great service here the food is literally to die for...you owe it to yourself to eat here. Worth every penny!

I have been to Del Frisco's several times over the years, the last time being about 3 years ago. I always liked this restaurant very much, but I was surprised at how much better it became since my last visit. It is now my favorite steakhouse. We arrived on time for our reservation. Although the restaurant was packed, my wife and I were seated by a very friendly hostess immediately. As soon as we sat down, we were provided with water, bread, the wine list and the menu. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced, containing a huge selection of both half-bottle and full-bottle formats. We skipped the appetizers in favor of ordering the 12 ounce filet mignon, the 32 ounce Waygu Tomahawk Chop and the 16 ounce lobster tail to split. We also ordered the onion rings and the spaghetti squash. The portions were large, too much to be consumed by two people, so we had an excellent dinner at home the next evening.

Both steaks were perfectly cooked medium rare as requested. The Waygu Tomahawk Chop was perfectly marbled and could have been sliced with a butter knife. The filet mignon was the most tender filet I have tasted in years. The lobster tail was huge, meaty and as sweet as can be. Many steakhouses give short shrift to their sides. However, not Del Frisco's. The onion rings were perfectly cooked and bathed in a delicious batter before being deep fried. Crispy as can be, yet not at all greasy. The spaghetti squash was also delicious, bathed in an unctuous concoction of cream, cheese and pistachio nuts (not meant for dieters). We were too full to even consider desert.

Our server was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the menu and specials. She was on top of everything from the time we walked in until the time we left. She anticipated every need before we know that we need it. Her timing was perfect.

The steak was great, but the service was not very good. Our entrees were served to us rudely and we asked the waiter to cut it nicely, but all they did was slice the steaks in the middle and left. I think Del Frisco is the only steakhouse that did not complete a request of this sort.

The restaurant is extremely close to Radio City and Rockefeller Center. Great ambiance. The staff is very attentive. Our steaks were cooked to our request. The salad and side vegetables
were enough for us to share. The birthday dessert was a surprise from the restaurant.
Although a bit pricey it was well worth it. I would go back and do recommend it for special occasions . I would suggest reservations depending on the time you arrive. It seemed empty when I arrived but was filled up by the time we left.
