Editorial review from Citysearch 12/23/2014

The worst place to eat ever. The service lousy,the place was dirty. There was this guy dressed in a football jersey that was drunk running around talking loudly. He was the owner!! My wife and I will never go back there, if we wanted a red neck night on the town we would definitely go there. more

Great food,Great Service 9/1/2011

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. more

Del Frisco's - A Dining Nightmare 12/18/2010

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. \r more

Great Food, Greater People 6/29/2010

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 Pros: Fantastic food more

Perfect place, perfect steak 2/27/2010

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. Pros: Staff is awesome ! Cons: ?? more

Del Frisco's...Mixed opinion 2/20/2010

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. Pros: Non-paying guests were quite happy Cons: Average food, Average service, $250+ more

rude 1/17/2009

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. more

This place is first class all the way 1/7/2009

My husband and I absolutely loved this place. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The tables have nice linen tablecloths, we never waited for a single thing. While one person was pouring us fresh ice water at the table another was ready to take our drink order and advise us of any specials. I just cannot say enough great things about this place. more

All I can say is WOW 8/9/2008

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!! \r \r 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. \r \r 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!!!! Pros: It ALL was FANTASTIC!!! Cons: N/A more

Can't Find a Steak This Good in Atlanta! 12/21/2007

I recently moved away from Louisville...back to Atlanta, where I lived before moving to Louisville.

\r \r To be quite honest, there isn't a single thing that I miss about Louisville!\r \r OOPS...Yes, there is a SINGLE thing that I miss...Del Frisco's!\r \r 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!\r \r 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.\r \r 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!!!\r \r 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!\r \r 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...\r \r 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.\r \r I love the weather in Atlanta...much nicer than Louisville...But I MISS MY DEL FRISCO'S.\r \r Don't miss the chance to try this place.\r \r 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...\r \r Del Frisco's is the best steakhouse I have ever found...anywhere. Pros: Best steak ever, Filet Mignon with FLAVOR, tender and cooked to perfection Cons: Too far away more

Nothing like it 11/19/2007

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. Pros: Everything but the bread & dessert is homemade more

a must when visiting louisville 11/15/2007

Audrey, the owner, makes everyone feel welcome, she makes it a point to visit the tables to make sure your dinner is prepared to your satisfaction. My favorite is the filet that is so tender and juicy and comes out on a sizzling plate and is a meal in itself. The salads are huge so consider splitting one. Don't let the outside fool you of it's being small we have had several Christmas parties here and a room to ourselves. Food is excellent. There is also a bar area with tables if you choose to watch the big screen. Highly recommend this local secret. more

Best Steak Everrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!! 4/27/2007

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!!!\r \r 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! Pros: menu, service, drinks, atmosphere more

Food maybe be good but some will never know 7/26/2006

We were going to buy a gift certificate from Del Frisco's but they do not sell them. They also do not have a web site. So we called the resturant and they told us that the only way that you could pay for a dinner was to be at the resturant and pay in person or have your guess call you when they have eaten and have received the check. Then you could supply a credit card number and pay for their dinner. I think that this is very awkward and they need to come up with a better method to treat a guest to dinner. The food maybe good but some poeple will never know. Pros: from word of mouth it is wonderful Cons: need to simplify payment options more

Too many better places 4/23/2006

I was very enthusiastic to dine at Del Frisco's, my first time. I never plan to return. Starters, my baked potato's presentation was in a Styrofoam box, on a neighboring table. Then there is the service and presentation. To start six employees arrived with our meal, and proceeded to holler the entree and sides for each party member to claim his/her respectful meal. Speaking of servers...I never saw ours, but to take our order and drop the check afterwards. I never received one of my sides because the server took the liberty to add it to a family sized bowl and drop it at the other end of the table. When I finally had the servers attention to inform her I never received the side, she had already delivered the check. The best person in the restaurant was the young man assisting our pathetic excuse of a server. Pros: someone else paid, server's assistant Cons: expense, server, lack of lighting more

I have found the best 4/20/2006

After being told by many that Del Frisco's was the best steak in town, I desided to see what all the hype was about. When I called to make my reservation, I ask for a server by the name of Vince, which was also recomended. My date and I arived at 7:30 on Sat. and was seated promtly. Our drink order was taken and then Vince arived. We asked for his recomendations, and he was helpful explaining the Ala carte menu. We went for the Large filet and the Filet and king crab legs. We also ordered the green funk also recomended, and a couple of potatos. Everything was what it was hyped up to be from the food to the service. We agree with all that recomended Del Frisco's. Great food and be sure to ask for Vince. more

Exquisit 39th wedding anniversary 5/3/2005

This was a very special night. It was our first visit to dle frisco's and we were not disappointed. We both said it was the best dinner we had ever had. That's a high compliment as we're both near 60. The steaks were very tasty and juicy, seasonings perfection. The lobster and king crab extremely sweet and wonderful, herbed butter excellent. Sauteed mushrooms absolutely delicious. Potatoes baked to perfection. Drinks refilled before we could take two or three drinks. Ashtrays emptied after finishing one cigarette. Even the wine was fantastic. Our waiter, Vince, could not have been more attentive and so very manneristic. We will return as soon as we can and needless to say, will be our anniversary dining for all the years to come. We cannot give this dining establishment enough praise! Tom and Iris Akins - Thanks, Del Frisco's and Vince! Pros: romantic, friendly, absolutely delicious Cons: a little pricey more

CUT STEAK WITH BUTTER KNIFE 1/14/2005

THIS FAMILY-OWNED RESTURANT IS A STAPLE OF THE ST. MATHEWS COMMUNITY. THE STEAK IS SECOND TO NONE IN THE CITY. THE STEAK WAS SECOND TO NONE. THE STEAK IS SERVED ON A SIZZLING HOT PLATE (450 DEGREES) WITH CLARIFIED BUTTER. WHETHER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A ROMANTIC DINNER, BUSINESS OUTING, OR JUST AN APPETIZER AND A COCKTAIL THIS IS THE PLACE. THE GREEN PHUNQUE, A HOUSE CONCOCTION, IS A CREAMED SPINACH CASEROLE WITH BACON, CHEES, ONIONS, MUSHROOMS, SCRAMBLED EGGS, AND A COUPLE OTHER ""SECRET INGREDIENTS"". BELIEVE IT WHEN I SAY... THE PHUNQUE IS THE BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: STEAK, STEAK, STEAK more
