Great food,Great Service – This place is amazing! My wife and I went there just wanting to try something new, the food was GREAT!,and our waiter was very nice and even gave us complementary dessert.
Although a little out of our price range we left feeling completely satisfied.
Del Frisco's - A Dining Nightmare – For someone to put Del Frisco's in the category of "Fine Dining" is absolutely ridiculous. I had a reservation for two people, made days in advance, and waited for 25 minutes! They had older people walk in the whole time I waited and sat them with no wait. Maybe it was because my date and I were younger adults.Once seated, our waitress was very short with answering questions; by no means thorough. The coordination of where the food runners took the food was extremely poor. They wondered around the dining room asking each table if the food was theirs. Niether my date or I were warned that the plates were hot when our food finally came out so I burned my hands situating my plate. My entree was a [12-14 oz.] Filet Mignon cooked Well that was not accompanied by a steak knife. I asked for one and the waitress seemed offended and asking if my butter knife hadn't worked. I was appaulled that I was questioned about a request at an "upscale" restaurant.I have dined at places like Rivue, Jeff Ruby's, Ruth's Chris, Vincenzo's, Volare, etc. I really had higher expectations for Del Frisco's and in my opinion, I should've headed straight to Ruth's Chris after 10 minutes of waiting. Except for the fact that it was a Saturday night and I had already cancelled my other reservation at Rivue just because Del Frisco's had an earlier available reservation.I tend to take my girlfriend out to nicer Louisville restaurants for an "eclectic" dining experience. My philosophy is that when you go to an upscale restaurant, you're not only paying for great food, but also for the service and experience. I was thoroughly disappointed in the way our night turned out. I hope they step it up for the reputation of the Del Frisco's name's sake.
Great Food, Greater People – This restaurant will always stand out to me. When I was younger I found myself at St. Joe's, of no fault of my own. But one Christmas I remember all of us including staff being invited to Del Frisco's for lunch. They were closed to the public, and the owner Audrey and her family graciously opened their doors and hearts to us. I remember feeling very special just to be invited. The food was awsome. I since have matured and come back to this special place when I can. Audrey and her family are still there, the food is still great but the memory is greater. Thank You Del Frisco's
Perfect place, perfect steak – My husband took me for a belated Anniversary dinner to Del Frisco's . We were in jeans and not dressed up at all. The staff made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The dinner was top notch all the way ! We didn't have to ask for anything. The steaks were PERFECT.
Del Frisco's...Mixed opinion – Having reason to celebrate, I decided to treat my family to a fine dining experience at Del Frisco's. I had been there years ago and heard it was still the top place to take a group of hungry carnivores. My 3 (teen and twenties) guests were thrilled and ate with gusto speaking between bites only to discuss a return visit. Unfortunately, I was less than thrilled. Our water and soda glasses were unfilled 90% of the evening (1 person of 4 received a refill). The salad while tasty was limp. The steak orders were handed out in silence incorrectly and we played musical plates. I had French silk pie which could be better described as ice cream in a pie shell since it was largely still frozen and definitely wasn't silky. Even the steak was just average. I don't own a grill and have managed to equal the quality in my oven. My family was happy so from that perspective, it was indeed a celebration. The last thing I wanted to do was take the smiles from their faces by complaining. When all was said and done, they gleefully departed with the leftovers (I didn't want those either) feeling stuffed while I had a huge empty feeling and a wallet substantially lighter.
rude – My boyfriend and I went to Del Frisco's for Valentine's Day a few years back. The food was good and so was our waitress..... the coatcheck girl stared at my boyfriend the whole time making him very uncomfortable. then as we were getting ready to leave, I was standing up to put my coat on and he was still sitting. A lady that was sitting at the bar the whole time were eating, she was either a manager or owner or something like that, came over and stood right in front of me with her back to me and rubbed on my boyfriends back asking him how our dinner was......very inappropriate. I felt invisible. We will not be going back.
On our resent visit to Del Frisco's, my wife and I were there to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Simply put, we had the best meals we have ever had!!
I called to make reservations and spoke to a very well mannered man. I explained to the gentleman that I wanted to take my wife somewhere nice for our anniversary. He got our information and I mentioned that for her birthday we were VERY disappointed by Ruth?s Chris. The man informed me that he had our reservations, apologized for the Ruth?s Chris nightmare and then told me that he was Giles Lehto, the chef. He assured me that he would take good care of us and that he personally guaranteed that we would be pleased and definitely not return our steaks as we had to do 3 times on her B-day. I thought to myself that this guy is pretty bold to say such a thing having never met me, and considering I served 9 years in the military and literally have eaten all over the world.
All I can say is WOW, It was SO MUCH MORE than we could have ever expected! Vince, our server, was TOP NOTCH!! Just as all the great reviews had promised! We were seated immediately, our drink order taken, and then Chef Lehto came to our table to tell us happy anniversary. How classy is that!? We were blown away by the service and how wonderful the place looks. That was the ?tip of the iceberg? as they say. Vince described a few of Chef Lehto?s signature dishes, because they are not on the menu yet. I was sold on the ?Oscar style Filet? I can?t remember what all was on it, you will have to take my word for it! AWESOME!!! Asparagus, sauteed mushrooms, baked potatoes, the salad with homemade dressing? My wife said, even the coffee tasted better than any coffee she has ever drank! LOL We couldn?t have asked for anything more! Vince & Chef Lehto, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
Can't Find a Steak This Good in Atlanta! – I recently moved away from Louisville...back to Atlanta, where I lived before moving to Louisville.</br></br>
To be quite honest, there isn't a single thing that I miss about Louisville!
OOPS...Yes, there is a SINGLE thing that I miss...Del Frisco's!
I have lived in Atlanta for many years in the past, and recently again for four months, and as many good restaurants and steakhouses there are, NOT one of them does a steak that can compare to Del Frisco's in Louisville!
I am a New York strip fan, and at any other restaurant, i would never order any other cut. My wife is a big filet fan, but I won't eat a filet simply because they have no flavor...UNTIL DEL FRISCO'S.
Having eaten at Del Frisco's at least twice a month for years, I FINALLY took a taste of my wif'es filet one evening...WOW!!!
Corn fed...dry aged to perfection...cooked perfectly medium rare...easily cut with a butter knife...This filet tasted even better than any New York strip I had ever eaten!
Since that first taste of a Del Frisco's filet, I never ordered anything other than a filet (at Del Frisco's). even though they have the best New York in the world as well...
I have tried several Atlanta steakhouses, including Bones, and none of them compare...I travel all over the world for work, and haven't found a better steak ANYWHERE.
I love the weather in Atlanta...much nicer than Louisville...But I MISS MY DEL FRISCO'S.
Don't miss the chance to try this place.
Also...by the way...an earlier review said something about "poor service"...I can assume that the reviewer must have gotten their restaurants confused. The service at Del Frisco's is IMPECCABLE...My wife and I ALWAYS commented on it...even after our visits to Del Frisco's had become routine...
Del Frisco's is the best steakhouse I have ever found...anywhere.
Nothing like it – I can't say much about this restaurant that other reviews haven't already said. Corn fed beef served with creamed butter that cuts with a butterknife says it all. I understand they have a contract that no other restaurant within 100 miles is allowed to buy the same beef. My favorite things are the mushrooms, spinach phunque, fried shrimp, and homemade Caesar and Blue Cheese dressings. Although the dining room is formal it's also unpretentious. The servers are real professionals, most have been there for over a decade. I worked there as my first job, and everything is still exactly the same. My only complaint is the prime rib is not as good as the other cuts.
Best Steak Everrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!! – This is a family owned restaurant. Not a chain. The food is to die for. They have spoiled me. I can't order steak from anywhere else because no one else's steaks can compare. If steak is not your thing order the lobster or crab legs they are out of control....no mess involved they are served ready to eat...no cracking shells and scrapping out the fish. The service is amazing. The servers and busers are very attentative and the owner is always there. Her name is Audrey and she is super friendly. If you haven't eaten here yet you are missin out!!!
Ps. I don't know what that that other reviewer is talking about....they definetly sell gift certificates....I have bought them before........ps great gift idea the person i gave it to was so excited!
