The service was slow but friendly, and that was ok because we weren’t in a hurry. The food was super salty. Even the asparagus was so salty that I ended up only eating half of the dish. I had to cut off the top layer of my NY Strip because of the amount of salt. Did I complain? No, I didn’t want to put a damper on my date night. I was very disappointed, especially since the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle down the street is consistently amazing and my go-to restaurant for a special occasion.

I’m usually wary of prix fix menus. But this was such a good value... food was great! Service was a bit out of sorts but still amazing for the holiday. Can’t wait to go back

Our group of 6 was first seated in a booth against the Hall St side windows. The manager saw at once that it was too cramped for 6 senior adults and moved us to a table, which we appreciated very much.

They forgot part of my meal and, by the time they brought out my whole meal, my steak was cold and everyone else at my table was done eating! I had a second reservation for next week and absolutely cancelled it!

Sunday evening dinner with family members was outstanding. The restaurant was quiet (not terribly busy) and the staff was attentive and pleasant, the overall service superb. Great food. It's a high price point but worth the occasional splurge.

I enjoy my visits to Del Frisco's Grill. This visit was no exception. Our waitress was fairly new. But, I couldn't tell. She was very pleasant and attentive. The food was impeccable. The manager also stopped by to greet us. Thanks. We'll be back soon.

Was so surprised that my Halibut cost $54 and was overcooked and hard to chew. It came with 2 scallops and 2 shrimps that were also over cooked and chewy. I didn't want to send back because I was with a client. Definitely didn't think it was worth half of what I paid. Such a disappointment. Don't take a client.

AWESOME. Superb food, ambiance, and wine at this lively Uptown restaurant in one of the most bustling parts of Dallas. GREAT AREA. We come here often for a nice upscale dinner that is not too stuffy, and offers an amazing array of classic steaks, seafood and other American Grille fare. Fun and busy bar area draws a lively crowd and the all-window to McKinney views on both floors make it a central hub of Uptown. Our only real issue here is that while service is very good at the start of each meal--we often find our server disappears for long periods and we have to flag someone else down for a drink or other request. Some of the servers would rather chat with one another than help customers. But that said, we find this to be a great restaurant with flavorful food and great wines.

The ambiance was perfect!

Your able to talk to one another without the loud hustle and bustle of patrons or wait staff in the background.

The manager, Chris also came by our table often to make sure everything was fine! The waitress, her lively personality and attention to detail made all the difference.

Will I be back definitely, would I refer the restaurant to others, you bet!

Down lights on tables against east windows are too harsh, need a softer light there. One of the sides on the steak orders is Truffle Mac & Cheese (for a $3 upcharge). When that was ordered by the first person, the waitress asked if he wanted lobster mac & cheese instead and he didn't. I ordered it though thinking it was just a side since that was the implication but a big bowl came and a $48 charge for the side dish (as I recall). I think a forewarning on such a thing is the right thing to do since it's not on the menu but overall the experience was good other than those two things. Some awesome appetizers there.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. Katerina was very helpful as a manager and made the dining experience a memorable one. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Artichoke Appetizers, wedge salad, burgers, wine and peanut butter cheese cake are good.
Stay away from their steaks. Tough, temperature wrong, cut not prime

Good service, good atmosphere and location

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Enjoyed the Philadelphia egg rolls and crab cake as starters. Steaks were perfectly medium rare and the salmon was flaky and glistening. Nutella bread pudding was a perfect finishing touch!

The food was not good. The grille vs the steakhouse are much different, but the prices are still high at the grille.
