Wonderful place to eat.
We had the crab cake appetizer and it was, hands down, the best crab cake I have ever eaten.
We all had steaks. Ask about the rub. I like it but it can be overbearing. The sides are served family style and easily feed four.
The service was better than excellent.
If you want a restaurant that appreciates your business, provides great service and superb food, this is one of those places.

The food here is quite excellent. My wife and I both had a Filet and it was cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. The sides are large enough to share and are also quite good. Yes it is pricey, but it is great for a special occasion or if someone else is paying :). If you are one of those people who believes the cost of the meal is somehow related to its quality, then don't come here, you will be disappointed. Based on the quality of the food, and the food alone, it is excellent. I will say that this place, while very nice on the inside, is a very large, open place. It was quite noisy when we visited. Since it's so large, the wait-staff were busy and didn't give us the level of service I would have expected. I was also quite disappointed in the clientele. If you are going out to dinner to a nice, expensive place, do us all a favor and leave your jeans and Walmart shirts at home.

The moment you walk in, you see just how ornate some of the old banks could be. The building is simply beautiful. And in the midst of all of this architecture, there's a two story wine tower! Needless to say, the wine list is huge; like a volume of one of the old encyclopedias! Great appetizers, and the steaks were superb - made perfectly to order. Sides are certainly large enough to share - don't get one per person; it will be too much. It's a pricey evening, but if you're going to splurge or want an impressive and satisfying spot for a business dinner - Del Frisco's hits the mark. If you go downstairs, you can see the original vault. The door is enormous! And for those really special occasions, you can actually schedule to have dinner inside the vault. The staff is freindly and the service is top shelf. If you're downtown and looking for a true dining experience - give Del Frisco's a try.

5 of us had dinner on a boys night out here and the building was amazing. Beautiful inside, the bar is nice, and our servers were very accommodating. The food overall for the price isn't anything to rave about - it's good, but not worth it in my opinion. I had a Filet Oscar which was "OK", however the 22 oz lobster tail we ordered for the table was very good, as well as the chilled seafood appetizer. Next time we will stick to the restaurant week menu or may just skip it and go to Sullivan's.
