3 stars for the cheesesteak eggrolls and truffle mac n cheese which were delish! The nutella bread pudding was pretty good too. Downside: This place is way overpriced. Our server was mediocre. He strongly suggested we butterfly our medium well filets. What a waste, got an over cooked 8oz puck for $36 that came with a tiny unpalatable potato cake. My sister got the 12 oz which was a little better but not by much. There were other things on their menu I wanted to try. I would consider trying another location but won't return to this one.

We were really looking forward to experiencing Del Frisco’s Grille this past Saturday, Feb. 7. We loved the ambience and the cocktails were spectacular. However, unfortunately things started to spiral downward quickly. I ordered the crabcake appetizer, which arrived alone, no field greens, just one smallish crab cake on the plate for $17. I decided to keep a positive outlook – it was at least tasty. Then about 20 minutes after our appetizers were picked up, our dinner arrived. We were ravenous at this point. While ordering the 12 oz. filet mignon, I asked the server what color the center would be if I’d ordered it medium rare. Her response was “red.” To which I responded, what would medium be? She responded “warm pink center.” Perfect, I said, make mine “medium.” What came to the table so much later was a bloody, cool mess in the middle. I was surprised, considering our conversation. I sent the meat, which I’d sliced down the middle, back to the kitchen. When my dinner arrived the second time, it was cooked more of the edges of course, but still very cool and red in the middle, so I sent it back AGAIN, and the AGAIN (mind you, by the third time I sent it back, it was sliced in quarters). Rather than send a new, correctly cooked filet, the same filet, which was now dry and tough, was returned to me. I was tired of sending it back. I was starving, we had tickets to a jazz show, and I was determined to enjoy my evening out. The manager, Andrew Ojeda, finally made an appearance and offered to “take care of dinner.” Yet, at the end of the evening we received the FULL bill. When my husband brought it to the server’s attention, she took it to Mr. Ojeda, and we got a revised bill with just my meal deducted and a dessert (which he’d suggested that I order) deducted as well. So VERY disappointed in the entire experience.

Went here with a group of friends on Friday night just for some drinks. Without ever consulting the person whom handed him the card, Upstairs bartender allowed numerous people from outside the party to order drinks and food on the tab. Manager removed only half the charges we told him were not part of the group tab. Otherwise decor is good and drinks were ok.

Definately unprofessional and unorganized. Not seated for 30 minutes after reservation. Wait staff were slow. No one bothered to fill empty wine or water glasses until I got up and filled the water myself. And they didn't bring part of our order out...steak was okay but not great. After asking my around my concensus is not unique.

If I could give this place a zero stars I would. I recommend firing the male night manager who has zero management and holds his staff under no accountability. Went to an event tonight where apparently their coat check system is set up to just randomly throw coats in the closet and have staff who are incapable of reading numbers on a tag. As I stood in the front of the overcrowded line, people pushing and being rowdy, a man threatened to slap my wife in front of the manager. The manager, with great leadership skills literally just stood there and told me that he would take care of it. Then turned around and did nothing. If this is how they protect their clients, I can't imagine ever wanting to visit this establishment again. I'll be reaching out to the owner tomorrow to suggest firing the managers.

The Ahi Tuna Tacos, Cheese Steak Eggrolls, VIPs and rotating draft selection make this place one of my favorites. Great place to sit outside for lunch and drinks in the summer.

Last night I left Del Frisco's in DC where I had an absolutely appalling experience. My partner and I arrived at the restaurant after a long day of travelling for dinner with a client. We arrived early so decided to have a drink at the bar. Of course the barista asked to see our IDs so we obliged. My partner is 35 and an American and I'm 25 and British. I said to the barista that I'd point out where my details were on my UK drivers licence as I didn't think she would be familiar with this kind of ID. However she said that this wasn't an acceptable form of ID as it wasn't issued by the US government or state government. I pointed out that I'm British so wouldn't have any US documentation. For those of you that aren't familiar with UK drivers licences, the licence has a photo, address, DOB along with vehicle classification information and has a hologram running through the middle to prove authenticity. She maintained that I had to had a US issued ID in order to serve me alcohol. She then proceeded to speak to her manager, Shang Skipper, and called him over. He asked how we were and I honestly said that I wasn't too happy with the situation. I was trying to explain that I was British and that my driving licence was a UK government issued document, I also had my credit and debit cards, an EHIC card and National Insurance card. I asked what kind of US documentation a British citizen was meant to have and he very rudely said 'um your passport.' I pointed out to him that that isn't a US issued document which is what the barista had stated previously, and said that I'd never had a problem in any other American state or city I'd visited in showing my driving licence as a valid form of ID. He said to leave the barista out of it because we had asked to see him, in fact we hadn't, the barista had. I also stated that I wasn't comfortable carrying around both my passport and drivers licence in case my bag were to get stolen, thus leaving me with no form of ID. At this point we said that we had connections in the media. I'm a freelance journalist and a family member is a food writer, and that we would be writing about our experience. Shang said that we were threatening him, which was completely ridiculous. I told him that I was very upset with his attitude and he said we were welcome to leave. After this experience, of course we did not have any desire to be in an environment like that, and got up to leave. What was particularly insulting though, was that he followed us round to the door as if he were escorting us out. I've lived in many countries including the UK, Australia, France and Spain, and have worked in the hospitality industry as many of us have done in our youth, and I can honestly say that never have I received such appalling and disgusting treatment. I thought that America was famed for its hospitality. This experience did not live up to its reputation, in fact it was far from it. As I've mentioned, I am aware that not everyone may be familiar with where the DOB on a UK drivers licence is, but that is no excuse for belittling customers and treating them in a rude and abrasive manner. I am very interested to hear what the GM, Tim Donah, has to say about this incident, especially taking into account that this exact post has been deleted from their DC Facebook page and their generic chain page.
