From the moment you walk in you’re greeted with the luxury of the decor and the warm presence of the staff. Once seated, you’re offered the menu, you’re presented with number of different menu items including an array of different steaks and seafood options. For starters, if you’re a lover of seafood, it’s strongly suggested to try the shellfish plateau. Laying on a bed of ice, there’s a perfect blend of oysters on a half shell, iced jumbo rock shrimp, chilled crab claws, and Alaskan king crab legs garnished with lemon wedges and parsley. After indulging in some of the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste, it’s the moment to select your steak for the evening. Del Frisco’s menu offers a number of options ranging in cuts and size. When ordering steaks, a lot of restaurants will overcook the steak. Contrary to other restaurants, Del Frisco’s grills your steak to perfection and exactly how you ordered it. When it comes to sides, Del Frisco’s is unmatched. A crowd favorite is always the King Crab Gnocchi or the lobster mac and cheese. The gnocchi is a perfect blend of cream and crab which compliment the gnocchi perfectly. The crab is has a nice fresh taste without being too “fishy”.
All in all, Del Frisco’s is pricey, but it’s definitely worth every penny!
