Del Frisco's Steak House
Del Frisco's, decorated in wood and leather, has the comfortable feel of a private gentlemen's club and the food to match. Prime beef is trucked in from the Midwest and cut to order. An eight-ounce Filet Mignon is a popular choice. For a spicy alternative, try the Santa Fe Peppercorn Steak. A bottle of red wine would go well with these delicacies. The Knife and Fork Club of America has named the flagship Del Frisco's, located in Dallas, one of the 10 best steakhouses in the country, and the Orlando location is living up to this honor.
After arriving in Orlando I wanted to have a wonderful meal with the love of my life. We chose Del Frisco�s because of the ambiance and character it seem to display. The greetings seem sincere but it ended there. The waiter was smug and to top it off there was a television set above my head gather the attention of all the waiters in the place. They were filing in by groups to catch the game. The wine was excellent but the fillet I had was not very good. After spending close to $175.00 we were not impressed.
Everything we had was outstanding. One of the very best meals in town. Don't miss the Mandarin Orange Cake. I asked for a good table since it was a special night. We were seated in the lounge so I guess that is what they consider a special table. Leather chairs were not comfortable but the server switched them out for us a couple times. Nice guy!
First time there in awhile...we WILL be back.
We normally go out for a decent steak dinner once a month. We had heard some wonderful things about Del Frisco's and decided to try it last night. We arrived about 15 minutes ahead of my son, who was joining us. We were seated, given menus and left. When the waiter appeared he asked what we wanted to drink. We asked for tea and water with lemon. We got tea and water, no lemon, although he did grab sweetener off another table when we requested it. He finally brought back the lemon. Someone else brought a half stick of butter on a plate and placed it on the opposite side of the table, behind the small candle/lamp, salt and pepper, etc. from us. When the bread was delivered to the table, it too was placed on the opposite corner of the table. Our apetizers were also placed on this side of the table. Needless to say I had to stand up to rearrange the table each time so that we could reach our food. When my son arrived, he was seated with us and given a menu. We finally flagged down another waiter after ours passed our table 3 times without stopping to inquire if my son wanted a drink. We all ordered filet and for whatever reason the waiter had mine (ordered medium to medium-well) butterflied. When the steaks arrived, mine was charcoal on the outside and slightly bloody on the inside and butterflied. We were not asked if we wanted coffee or dessert after dinner. The prices are what we expected, but although the ambiance is nice, I expected more from the service and food. The Au Gratin potatoes were large chunks of potato in a bland sauce, covered in melted cheddar cheese. We normally go to Ruths Chris, Stonewood Grill, or Bonefish for steak and will definitely will continue to do so. Del Frisco's will not be on the future list for dining out.
We liked everything about this place. Can't wait to go back . The lobster was excellent. Portions are large enough to share .Many menue choices. We have ate all over the world and Del Frisco's rates with the very best.

As a party of 4 we had 8 o'clock thursday night reservations. We arrived 10 minutes early and ended up waiting 1 hour and 10 minutes. When we finally got our table, it was cramped with barely enough room for the 4 of us and our feet. All the tables around us were packed in with barely enough room to maneuver. The lobster bisque was very good with large chunks of lobster. The house chardonnay was good but they only have one choice for wine by the glass for almost all varieties. The bread served was piping hot and delicious. My filet was good and cooked perfectly but was seasoned with so much peppercorn I could barely eat it. I paid 28 for a steak- and just a steak- no sides. Sides are $6.95 to $7.95 extra. The steak my friend had- bone in prime rib was the best steak he says he has ever had. Overall the wait was too long, the food was ok, and the bill was too high. I would not go back.
My family has been a satisfied customer of Del Frisco's for 9 years. That ought to tell it's the best. The staff and the owner makes you feel like your dining in their home. The Governor's Filet is what we come back again and again for...and we always start with the Fried Oysters. Hot/crispy on the outside and juicy/steamed on the inside. One little side issue I asked someone about. The proper name is Del Frisco's Prime Steak & Lobster...not Steakhouse. If you ever try the Australian Cold-Water Lobster Tail, you'll understand why. Go for it...you won't be sorry.
A true steakhouse atmosphere! Large portions of meat seasoned to tantalize your taste buds' memory glands long after you have gone home.
The only way you have a bad meal here is if you manage to always have a bad experience anywhere you go.
I have taken clients to Del Frisco's on six occasions without the slightest regret.
This restaurant is overpriced, over rated and for me, just over. I havr tried it several times, all of which were bad. One time I took 8 business associate with me. After lousey service, poor food, improperly cooked orders and truly crummy produce, I paid a check in excess of $1,000.00 before tip. the steaks are so - so, the lamb is better at the Outback Steakhouse (and a lot cheaper)The tomatos on the tomato and onion salad were no where near ripe. The lobster tails were tough and at nearly $64.00 per pound a really bad choice. The staff for the most part was nice however,the waiter was sloe and rude. Finally even the water there was terrible, it tasted like it came from a garden hose. In short, never again. Ruths Chris is much better all around, with the exception of the ambience at De frisco's. avoid this one, it's over priced, over rated and you will ruin your experience if you go there.
For a restaurant that advertises in most "high end" magazines, I found this place to be so so. Don't get me wrong, the food was great and the portions huge, but it lacked in it's service department. I found my self waiting too long for my galss to be filled or for more butter. But, this may be what they are trying to achieve, as this is supposidly a treandy place to take out a loan for a steak.
