Thought we would treat my Brother Clint to a nice lunch. He loved it. Dal Rae has been updating inside over the years, but managed to keep that 60’s Frank Sinatra feel. Hope this place stays around a long time. Will definitely be back next visit. Tried the Salmon this time, next visit will be Abalone 😻🤙🏽
Mahalo for the memories Dal Rae
The food and the service were very good. Love the atmosphere except the table were a little too close together.
Happy New Year 2020
10 out of 10... This is a diamond in the rough... classic, attentive service! The menu selection was impressive and the food was one word: YUMMY!! If I was not visiting from NC, I would stop by once/twice a month. Awesome restaurant!
Took my dad out to dinner here we ordered sea bass , filet, and crab cakes. Everything was amazing! Server was very patient. Thank you guys!
This was our second time visiting the restaurant. It was very beautifully decorated for the holidays, which was nice to see. Haley was our server and she was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent service. I would want to recommend to our friends about the restaurant but I’m sure then we might have trouble getting in on the days that we want. 😁
Great food and service, as always!
Wonderful, amazing and incredible experience. This classic restaurant far exceeds most restaurants in the surrounding area. Top notch, world class wait service by Ilene, tableside Caesar salad and fish dishes and desserts, along with a classic relish tray make your experience exceptional. Always enjoy our time here and tonight was no exception. Thank you...
Not many places with great ambiance and great food.
Service always great.
Excellent meal and overall very enjoyable experience
Dal Rae is our favorite dining experience when we visit SoCal. The food is always outstanding, attentive service and the ambiance is amazing! It’s like a step back in time in the very best of all ways. We highly recommend!
We had a wonderful time
We go here every year, I don’t think anyone wanted to complain but when we left we realized we all had the same experience, cold food, the crab legs were dry and cold, my moms prime rib was cold, the soup was cold, and it took an hour to even get an appetizer order in. It ruined our evening, my mom even came home sick. I’m not used to this and I will be contacting the manager tomorrow. Everyone was busy and overwhelmed last night. I couldn’t here myself talk over the music so I figured I would reach out to management on a different day. Super disappointed
Made a reservation several days ahead, yet we sat in a booth designed for three next to the kitchen door . We were four people. It was uncomfortably tight, noisy and I kept getting rocked by the kitchen door banging against the back of my seat. Food is pricey. The only meal really enjoyable was the gigantic filet mignon. It was really well cooked - medium rare. My husbands wagyu was very disappointing. Overall, we found it over priced, too tightly packed and noisy. It was not a relaxing dining experience.
It was amazing, service was great. Our afternoon was beautiful. We really enjoyed our dinner, it was delicious.
Best flat iron steak, have ever had. Short rib, just set knife onctop, it would cut itself. Scampi, hughxshrimp, almost tasted like lobster.
our server Hailey was great - I would request her again
she added to the evening
This was our second visit. The first visit was great the service was a amazing. This time the service really was not very good. It took them long to come over and take our order and over the course of the meal the server did not check in very often. It was a real contrast from the first time.
The food was amazing we really liked the escargot and the french onion soup. The steak was cooked perfectly as usual.
We have been going to the Dal Rae for 35 years , never disappoints!!
Classic European high cuisine-difficult to find nowadays. Great service, large menu, excellent for special occasions.
The filet mignon pepper steak was fantastic.
The servers were very efficient and friendly. We will definitely be back.
The reservation dinner was on Christmas Eve and it was packed. It was a good idea to get a reservation otherwise your trip to Dal Rae will be wasted since they won't offer you any table at all even though you are willing to wait. We were seated by the patio area where there is no heat and seated next to us a big group which the noise is just unbearable. The food is overall good but compared to the last time we had dinner there, I noticed that the food including the appetizers and ceasar salad was prepared too quick the quality was not great.
Went for Christmas Eve. Very busy but we had a wonderful time. The food is always so good. The ambiance is especially cool during the holidays because of the lights they put up!
We had 6pm reservation for our family Christmas Eve tradition for over 20 years We arrived early and went to bar for cocktails. We were seated about 5 min early.
A little disappointed not to be seated in booth, but no complaints. I called early Nov for Christmas Eve & put in request for nice booth, but request not honored.
Food was excellent, service was excellent. Veal chop was delicious, filet mignon & rib eyes so tender!
Chilean Sea Bass is superb!
Requested a booth in reservation. Given a table- very disappointed.
Wonderful food and service with old school charm of the '50s and '60's. Classic dishes. Go here for our annual family "eve before Christmas eve" family dinner and it never disappoints. We have been going here since 1987 and it is ALWAYS consistent. Wonderful place and hope it continues on for many, many years.
Our server gave us awesome service.
The food was good , however because of the holiday, our caesar salad was pre-made ( not tableside), so it suffered in the transition. My salmon was tasty, asparagus okay.
I have been coming here for many years, so the differences were apparent to us.
At the end of the day, Del Rae is still an amazing restaurant to have dinner, or celebrate an occasion/event!
Thank you for the great service!
Just amazing dinner, especially given how busy it was with Christmas festivities going on. Top level service and exquisite food as always.
Can get a bit crowded and thus high noise levels but it was festive.
Margerittas weren't as tasty as last time, but everything else was fantastic.
This is my favorite place to have a wonderful dinner. Celebrated my Granddaughter's 18th birthday there tonight. Going back next month to celebrate my own birthday. We had two servers tonight, both named Robert! Robert #2 took over when he came in. Both were so attentive to us and the birthday girl. They treat you so wonderful. Plus the food, OMG! If you want a great meal and I mean GREAT, you have to try Dal Ray. We love the food and the staff is amazing! Thank you Dal Ray for making her birthday so memorable!!
As I made a reservation over a month in advance, we expected better seating. We arrived to an EXTREMELY busy & overbooked restaurant. Instead of being seating in the dining area, we were seated in the bar area right next to the restrooms & in the path of the servers' entrance/exit to the kitchen. After being jostled around for 15 minutes, we realized this was not going to work. We asked the hostess to reseat us, especially since the reservation was made well in advance to avoid this exact situation. Not only was she extremely rude & dismissive but she tried to put the blame on us. It wasn't until someone in our group name dropped, did we start receiving the customer service we expected from this establishment. We finally received better seating after another 15 minutes. The food was delicious, but unfortunately, one person in our party had food that was undercooked. After the re-fire, it was still undercooked.
Needless to say, our overall experience was disappointing.
I would give it another chance. Service slow, 2 in my party and both orders were mixed up, food was warm not hot. Food was tasty, but again warm.
Pleasant, festive atmosphere
Beautiful restaurant, excellent food and service. We will definitely be back!
The food was amazing. Our group had the filet mignon, rib eye and the Chilean sea bass which were all amazing!!!
My wife an I normally don’t go to restaurants at this price range. We came here for her birthday. We both liked it a lot. We were the youngest people there (Mid 30’s)when we went (530pm). Food was great. I got the Swordfish and my wife got the Shrimp scampi. Baked potatoe an dessert was really good.
Always a pleasure. Always excellent food and service. The best
love this place!! we go every three months. Salmon was perfect, as were the asparagus. Server was helpful, courteous and friendly! cant remember her name we've had her before. As always, a great experience and way to connect with old friends over excellent food!!
