Philadelphia, PA 19102
Philly’s newest steakhouse is also the most grandiose, thanks to its home in the colossal old Packard Building (a.k.a. the Grande) at 15th and Chestnut. Here, the ceilings soar, a wall of windows is draped in velvety red, and a three-story glass wine tower spirals skyward in the middle of a curving bar. The place is so new that it’s hard to be cross about a filet that’s grilled somewhat unevenly (especially when the steaks arrive so perfectly seasoned, and the potatoes gratin are so gratifying, with layers of cheese cooked just so). It’s also hard to predict whether all those waitresses sashaying around in little black skirts will remain so attentive, or the straight-backed waiters so achingly polite. But for now, the bloom is on this rose, and it seems destined to become one of the more glamorous spots to see and be seen. Niche: Power lunch or power date, this is a place to impress. Signature steak: The 16-ounce bone-in filet. The tab: Steaks $33.95 (eight-ounce filet) to $64.95 (16-ounce bone-in filet); sides average $10.61. Wine list: The stunning wine tower showcases an encyclopedic selection, with an emphasis on California cabernets. A respectable array are under $80, like Chappellet’s inky Mountain Cuvee for $78.

Well, Where to start. We called for a reservations and were told they were not taking any more reservations but the walk in wait time was 30 minutes. We showed up a few minutes later and the wait time was 2 hours! We found a first come first serve high top table by the bar and sat down. Our 1st waitress came over to us 15 minutes later to give us menus and take our drink order. She never returned with our drinks. A second waitress came over and said she would take care of us. She was better but we still had to ask for things 2 times before they were brought out. Overall the food was good. The drink from the bar was fiercely strong. Our bill arrived and our first waitress's drinks she rang up for us but never brought us were on our bill. We had to get our bill revised by $35.00. It was good food but bad service!

Philly is very well known for it's steakhouses. It is very well known for it's great restaurants. Del Frisco's has been perfect for us every single time we've been there. The service is great; the wine list couldn't be better and the food just melts in your mouth. Go and enjoy.

Over priced, swordfish had no taste,food not cooked to order, overall food was poor, bread was horrible. A big rip off, would never go back even if someone else paid. The service was really good, however this did not make up for the bad food.
