Always terrific food, cocktails, and service at Dal Rae!
Excellent service, reminded us of the supperclubs in the Midwest.
Love the ambiance, food, and service. Everything we had from appetizers(calamari was crispy and tender and stuffed mushrooms with crab were ridiculously delicious real crab), main dishes(prime rib was juicy and tender full of flavor and so was the new York prime peppered steak is a must), desserts (apple tart with ice cream was perfectly sweet and warm that paired well with ice cream and creme brûlée with fruit was perfectly light and smooth. I will be a forever returning customer.
Nice and comfortable atmosphere.
Great job by Dal Rae!!!
Petrole Soul was delicious. Best ever. Indoor dining area ambience was relaxing and comfortable. Classy but not overdone. Professional and courteous servers. Would have liked a larger healthier selection of sides...more veggie selections. Noisy crowd at the bar.
Always the best experience!
Always delicious and the service is superb!
We were lead to our table as soon as we arrived.
Can’t wait to return!
Thank you, to the staff at the Dal Rae!
We ordered the prime rib and peppersteak. Both dishes were well prepared.
The service was friendly and efficient. Enjoyable evening.
Our Cocktails ran dry, had to ask for another round but food was excellent!
It was my bosses bday and I noted that in the reservation, but no dessert
Food was delicious! service was great, definitely felt like traveling back in time with the decor and lighting. Would definitely go back, prices are not bad either.
I would recommend sitting outside. We sat outside and was glad we did. The inside was too dark and crowded. I saw people having to use their phones to see the menu. Food was great. Sea bass and prime rib was very delicious.
Every was excellent except for the clam chowder it was very salty.
Order whatever you want here. Everything is delicious. Haven’t had anything I didn’t like!
Service was great, food was great, we love the old school decor, but the table next to us in the middle was way too close. Other than that, I give our experience a thumbs up. 👍
Wonderful experience. I've been a customer for years but first time since COVID started. Same as always. Classic cocktails, classic steakhouse menu. Excellent preparation, quality and presentation. Great for business, celebrations, holidays!
Great food. Disappointed with the service this time. For a special day it was a disappointment.
Love this place and the food was amazing. The sea bass was amazing! Everything was awesome!
There was a party of about 10 people seated near us who were celebrating a birthday. They were extremely loud all evening. They made our visit less than enjoyable.
I have been to dal Rae many times, this time I tried the dine l.a. menu. We were not disappointed. Service, food, and ambiance were all wonderful. The regular menu offers a good selection of dishes, we enjoyed them in our past visits. I highly recommend this place!
It was my girlfriend’s birthday. It has been on her bucket list to eat at Dal Rae. Dal Rae did not disappoint me. The waitress did an excellent job - she was kind, considerate and very accountable. The food was excellent. The service was great too. We had a wonderful experience dining at your restaurant. Thank you for continuing being the best and still around .
The service was impeccable. Miguel was amazing taking care of us. The food was great. The sea bass was the best of all. The peppered filet was good too. Good friends made the evening fun but the service and quality of food just make it great!
Classic Steakhouse feel and food is very flavorful. Love the relish dish too.
Dal Rae does not disappoint! I’ve been dining here for over 30 years and every time is a treat. On this visit, we both had the house specialty, Chilean Sea Bass. I hadn’t ordered it for awhile, but it is still amazing! Service is always top notch.
From when me and my wife I first walked in to when we left the service was first class. Everyone from the host, the server, and the chefs delivered the highest service. Keep up the great work.
Dal Rae is my place to go for special events like birthdays, anniversaries or simply a date night. Recently went to Dal Rae during dineLA. I've been going there during those special occasions as well as dineLA for many years. The dinner menu during October 2021 dineLA was the best ever. The appetizers were wonderful and each of us got the Pepper Filet Mignon. This was the first time I selected the Chocolate Temptation dessert and it was out of this world delicious. Three courses with tea or coffee was worth the price.
Server pleasant, knowledgeable, in general, very good service
Although service by Dawn was good, salad was not fresh and salmon & mashed potatoes were very cold. The bread was not fresh and hard! Also, why is there valet during lunch? Was not expecting this. Finally, I was surprised your Dine LA menu did not include dessert, unlike all the other restaurants I’ve visited since last week. And, no lattes. Very disappointing.
Went to do DINE LA, but food was kinda bland. Service was good.
Wish the food tasted better.
Excellent food and exceptional service always!
Great dinner, great place to celebrate as always!
Nice ambiance. Service was good. We tried the Dine LA dinner menu. The salad and dessert were great. The main entree however was just okay. They’re regular menu is way better. I’ll stick to that next time. We’ll be back soon.
Great food for celebration and soul. When having special deals, servers are in a hurry to get you out.
I have eaten at Dine la at Dal Rae for the past 10 years and are very happy with their dinner selection.
I was disappointed with their lunch DineLA. Salmon was not grilled enough and the
appetizer portion was very small.
Including tips, paid $65, thought it was overpriced
Food just very poor, onion soup- too watery, cheese was plastic-y, crab stuffed mushroom - just didn’t taste good. Steak was okay, seemed more like mincemeat, chicken parmsesan bland
We went to Dal Rae because Dine LA was on. We were expecting that they will cut out some portion of the food and quality will not be as good since we ordered off the Dine LA menu but they exceeded our expectations.
The service was great and we enjoyed our dinner. Chilean Sea Bass is always my favorite .
Del área is a classic, old school restaurant
Service was outstanding and food was delicious.
