Wonderful to dine here before attending a performance at the Pasadena Playhouse. Park near the Playhouse and walk back and forth. Restaurant has a good menu, pleasant environment and also a perfect spot for an after show drink.

Del Frisco's Grille went above and beyond for our large party. It was a triple threat success: the service was impeccable (thank you Erin!!), the food delicious (pork chop was incredible) and the private room was exactly what we needed (ambient noise usually makes our family gatherings a challenge for my parents, but they were able to hear every conversation perfectly!). We will definitely be back and are very grateful to the whole team at DFG!

Felt forgotten about in room we were in. Forgot wine pairings, served appetizers before drinks (even water). Food was not as good at all. Ribs were tough, filet was “ok”... service could have been better overall.

The waitress disappeared for long stretches of time. The food was undercooked and the appetizer consisted of old shrimp cocktail.

Very disappointing experience and I will never return. Despite that, I still gave them a 20% tip - though it wasn't earned

Very nice experience throughout entire visit. Reservation honored, server not only friendly but had complete knowledge of menu items which is rare sometimes. Menu not overwhelming and good variety. All food came as ordered, and appetizers were delicious! Will not hesitate to recommend and we'll certainly return, a no brainer. Also, valet parking is reasonable, quick.

Went for their California Wines Harvest event. They had over 20 white and red selections (each) as well as a good selection of their appetizers.

It was a very nice event and the staff is incredibly nice. I will be returning for dinner as well as future events.

Went to try their brunch for the first time with my husband. Restaurant was very quiet since it was early and holiday weekend. Host was nice and our server Chris took great care of us.

We ordered a goat cheese platter which was very delicious and a canter of mimosas to share. I had also ordered a fruit && flowers drink which I had to sent back because it was not good at all.

I had the crab Benedict which was amazing and hubby had the brick chicken. Chris gave us recommendation for dessert and we had the Nutella bread pudding with coffee ice cream and caramel. Hubby also tried their cracked coffee.

Only downside was that entrees took way too long to come out. We weren’t in a rush so we didn’t mind. Chris was awesome and checked in on us throughout the meal.

A bit disappointing in that the Prime Rib which is only available on Fri/Sat wasn't ready until 6:30. Really? When you open a restaurant, everything on your menu better be ready minute one. Obviously this is a lack on the management to instill discipline and run a tight ship. It's also disappointing to see workers walk in after the restaurant opening. If you were playing a football game, you wouldn't expect half your team walk on the field after the clock has started, so why should the restaurant be any different. Either your team is ready for kickoff or it isn't. Clearly your team isn't.

And the recommended steaks were a bit plain, slightly dry. It's far cry from the Del Frisco's in Texas. I think the California boys have lost the recipe what it means to cook and eat a real juicy piece of steak.

New fresh restaurant in the heart of Pasadena. Reasonable prices, tender meat. Delicious side dishes and a to die for peanut butter pie for dessert. Pricey valet

Server delivered the wrong entree and after we started eating offered to exchange it. When we declined based on time and hunger, we expected some type of adjustment on our tab. Unfortunately our expectations were incorrect. Not even a free drink or dessert was offered for her mistake.

This is a very good place. They really take care of you. I had chicken and my wife had stroganoff. Both were delicious. If you go, try the artichoke appetizer. You won’t be disappointed.

I've been to this restaurant a number of times. The food is outstanding, the service is excellent, and the setting is lovely. There is music in the background, but it's not so loud that you can't hear others speak. The manager always stops by to check on everything.

Great spot. Not exactly the world's most romantic or culturally inspired locale (in a bank building, essentially), but the food and service were both excellent, which is why you go out in the first place, right? It ain't cheap, but the wine selection is good (if a bit overpriced), the cocktail specials were inspired, the menu was varied, and the service was top-notch. I would recommend Del Frisco's if you're ready to splurge, and you want a place where you won't be rushed and you can talk, eat, and drink, and do all three well. i=It's a bit off the radar of most folks, which means you'll probably find a table.

We came to celebrate my husband's birthday. The service was great, we had so many staff members checking on us. Food was great, I tried the cauliflower steak and the raisin sauce on it was delicious, as was the VIP cocktail!

FYI..There is no self parking available, you have to valet your car.

Restaurant was 2/3 empty but our waitress seemed to be in a rush. Dropped a fork on me with no apology. Food was luke warm. I felt like dining at an overpriced Denny's.
