Special OccassionWe celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at the Dal Rae!
We drove further than another nice restaurant we enjoy. No regrets! The prime rib was awesome!
I almost ordered the Diamond Jim cut. Good thing I didn't. The standard cut was massive and delicious.
We also enjoyed the live light pop music we could hear from the bar area.
Our waitress was excellent.
We'll be back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, service wasFood was good, service was good but menu very pricey for the area.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Section ofFood was great. Section of restaurant where we were seated was very noisy. Tables were too close together, so much so that their advertised "table-side preparation" of certain items had to be done in the corner as there was no room next to the table. This has happened on several previous visits. Server was "so-so", have had better. Nice bar area with "live" music.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDate nightI took my girlfriend and niece on a date to dal rae. Ordered the oysters Rockefeller. .ate every single bit of it! Make sure you order a drink. They pour them with 4.5 oz of booze and they are really strong. As for dinner, everything there is excellent. We had the surf and turf combo which was a steak and white sea bass plate (ate every last piece of it). Be prepared to spend some cash if you come here though. Want to impress your date? Family in from out of town? This is for sure the spot.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Steak HouseWhat a great place and classic steak house. Food was great!

The food is always outstanding and the value is great, especially when it is compared to most other restaurants.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolute Favorite Restaurant!I have been going to this restaurant for 25 years and it is always an amazing experience. My favorite is the Sea Bass. But my husband loves the Pepper Steak. Everything is wonderful from the bread to the wine to the service to the desserts.

Last night was no exception! We celebrated my wife's birthday with our two young daughters and had an amazing time. My wife and I shared the Tomahawk Ribeye, 34oz I believe and my daughters enjoyed the prime rib and of course ended the meal with the chocolate souffle. Thanks to the staff for everything.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy placeThis restaurant is great, especially if you're in the area and looking for something a bit upscale but don't want to drive far. It has a very classy, old-school vibe here. The menu is on the expensive side, but definitely worth it. Service may not be as quick as you're used to, particularly if you go on a busy night, but my boyfriend and I went on a Monday night and the service was just fine.
The Teriyaki Tidbits appetizer was a good way to start the meal. The Large Filet Minon Pepper Steak was cooked to perfection and had a lot of flavor. The Chicken Breast with Wild Mushrooms was slightly overcooked but still very flavorful. The Banana Flambe for 2 dessert was prepared tableside and was a delicious way to end the night.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food but CrowdedFood is consistently pretty good. Relish tray is fun. Seating is very crowded -- aisles get blocked easily, chairs sometimes touching. We'll be back, though.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM...still great as ever ~!~...it had been awhile since I had been to the Dal Rae, it's just as good as ever, the food was excellent, the service was even better !!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous for Special OccasionsThe service is incomparable. This is a professional wait staff who make Cesar salads and cherries jubilee table-side. I always recommend Dal Rae and make sure everyone knows it's an extraordinary restaurant - a throwback to a time when good service mattered. The seabass a la Ben is so delicious, it's hard for me to order anything else. We've go several times throughout the year but ALWAYS go to Dal Rae for our anniversary dinner - 12 years!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food; Reasonable PriceFood was great and not overpriced like the Beverly Hills restaurants but comparable quality. A lot of choices for picky eaters. Outside the place looks like a bowling alley but inside it's a lot better. Great service and offers table side service for certain items.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOld school treasureOld school restaurant. Everything we had was delicious. I had the pepper steak filet mignon.

She was solicitous and gracious and knew when and how to pace our meal and see to our needs. The booths are ample red leather crescents that allow for quiet conversation. The linen tablecloths are kept clean by attentive bussing staff. We ordered cocktails and were also brought a relish tray of crisp raw veggies and basket of crisp breads and crackers. An excellent meal and experience. You can't go wrong w/Dal Ral.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationWe had a wonderful birthday celebration for our neighbor.

We tend to go to Dal Rae for their 14 oz. pepper steak. Can eat the rest of it the next two days. The garlic bread is to die for and the garlic mashed potatoes are super. In season, I like the parmesan incrusted halibut and it is unbelievable.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy this classic restaurantWe came here to celebrate an anniversary, and based on other reviews, we were expecting to be pleased. Dal Rae did not disappoint. The ambiance, the menu, the service, all are living relics from the past---all done with top quality. I was happy to see that they had classic dishes like duck a la orange, and lobster thermidor on the menu. We had the lobster bisque, their famous pepper steak (a prime new york steak, by the way), and the bananas flambe--all were wonderful. Portions are beyond generous. I also really liked that our server prompted us with questions like, "Are we ready to order, or do we want to relax and enjoy the wine for a while?" It really reinforced that one should enjoy and take their time with the dining experience.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDal Rae is a Southern CA classicDal Rae is a Southern CA classic and a place to return to again and again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my first time at theIt was my first time at the resturant.

Food: Had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was wonderful. Perfectly cooked, onion sauce was different and delicious. Husband had the Steamed Clams and rated it average. Said it was not very flavorful.
Loved the breads, loved the relish tray (really retro!) and overall will definitely return to try some other items on the menu.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMseabass ala ben and lobsterseabass ala ben and lobster thermador the best we`ve tasted.area is so so but they have valet parking.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDal Rae's, You Just Can't Go Once!Dal Rae is not your run of the mill restaurant, this little neighborhood gem is suprizingly located in the heart of Pico Rivera, the last place you would every expect a high end restaurant to be? The food is fantastic, as well as the service, these types of family owned resturants are far and few between. I had the Fettochini pasta with a bowl of New England Clam Chowder and my mom had Sushimi style Tuna on Bruchetta type bread slices, unbelieveable! This place is nothing short than "Outstanding" and a must visit location, I've been a devoted fan since my father began taking me there which should tell you how long they've been around, I was 16 at the time and now 56, the place is historic, but doesn't look old at all!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
