WON 2021 THE "BEST IN SOUTHLAND" FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES. IN THE SAN GABRIEL VALLEY,SOUTH BAY, AND THE SAN FERNADO VALLEY.
The Dal Rae is the Southern California restaurant where 1950s classics still reign. Lobster Thermidor, Pepper Steak, Chateaubriand, Prime Rib, Fresh Fish, Rack of Lamb, Steak Diane and Cherries Jubilee prepared tableside are among more than 100 items on a truly retro menu, complete with some of the city's best martinis. Opened in 1958, the Dal Rae has maintained its original atmosphere, too, right down to a piano bar with live entertainment. And, most important, it has preserved a tradition otherwise found only in private clubs -- knowing its customers by name and treating them like the most important people in the whole wide world. The Dal Rae is located close to the 5 freeway and half-way between LA County, Orange County and The Valley. It is a perfect location for business meetings or entertaining friends and family.

                    I have been here several times.The entire experience was wonderful. Everyone was friendly accommodating and service was point on. I definitely recommend Dal Rae. I love the intimate vibe this place gives you. For the prices well worth it.The food Chilean bass was so tender and tasty. I definitely will be ordering that again.

                    It's been years since I've been here and not like I remembered it. I ambiance was good but the service was very disappointing. Forgot our drinks then brought the wrong one. Was snippy when we sent it back. Never came back once we got our meal to see if we needed anything. Crab in our appetizer was didn't tasting and oysters had been sitting out to long. Our main meal was great.

                    The front desk hostess was not as welcoming as in the past hostesses. She didn't greet us when we walked in. She didn't tell us to follow her. She just held the menus and looked at us. She placed the menus on the table and just stood there. I told her thank you.

                    Dal Rae is okay but not great as I expected it it to be. I spent over $200 for a dinner of three and felt the food was just okay. Also, I could only order fries for my little 2 year old because they had no kids friendly menu or kid entrees. As for the service, the time we waited for our food was also okay. Not too long and just fine. This said, our server Miguel was very well mannered and polite. Love how he presented the food and took care of making it a special experience as best he could. He was excellent. Something about this place and their food reminds me of when you go to a wedding event and the quality level of their entrées. So expect it to be similar but not different or special. Just good. As for the ambience, it was really dated and certainly needs updating with at least some livelier new paint colors. A bit somber, especially the carpet and ceiling panels which need to be replaced. A pet peeve of mine was how the dress code was not enforced as business casual and saw many many people in their very casual clothes and some even in house shorts. Reminds me of when people go to form a line at a buffet in Las Vegas. Definitely not the upscale restaurant I was told it was and think I can get better for my money, elsewhere. Plus, they had no live music as I read a review or website somewhere mentioned. I took my wife and kids for mother’s day for the first time at Dal Rae and will not come again unless the owners show pride of ownership and bring up their brand with a fresh interior that we can say wow, this place is great! I think the owners have given up on making their restaurant modern for new foodies compared to say the look of a Cheesecake Factory or any newer restaurant. My assumption is they have an older loyal base of patrons who don’t know the difference. If you are looking for a lunch meeting, this crowd might show this feeling I have from my past visit 4 years ago. Too pricey for what you get here if you ask me. I rather try a new restauran

                    Everything was great. I think next time I’ll ask to be in the main dining room, but other then that service, food, drinks great.

                    First time here. Went on Friday before Mother's day, to celebrate our anni. The staffed asked us twice if we were celebrating a special occasion, not sure why they asked because they did nothing special for us. The food was very bland and safe we had to add salt and pepper to give flavor. I always heard great things about this place but was let down by the blandness of the food and service. Will not be coming back to spend a few hundred dollars to see if the food or service changes.

                    Dal Rae never disappoints. The portion of the Chilean Seabass for lunch was perfect. It was superb. Our guests who had never heard or been to this restaurant absolutely loved it.

                    Just did not like that the waiter circled the tip ratio, I find it insulting. I gave more than 20%.

                    This was not the best experience I have had a the Dal Rae but I have been there many times and it was unusual. I did receive a call from management apologizing for the issues and they seemed to genuinely care that my experience was not the best. And that is why I will continue to go back to the Dal Rae.

                    Absolutely amazing. We celebrated my wife’s 50th bday and were seated in an exterior little room near the front and it was beautiful. The waiter and waitress were awesome, helpful and funny. Food was served quickly and delicious as always. We save Del Rae for special occasions and will definitely be returning. Thank you to everyone there.

                    Always a great meal. Now charging $6 for relish tray. Veal Chop with morel sauce outstanding. Best liver and onions anywhere. Chopped wedge salad has huge amounts of blue cheese and easily shared by two.. One of few places left who still make cherries jubilee.

                    Ahi toast with avocado is a must! Really though, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Ask for Flower Dawn's section and you will be well taken care of for lunch!

                    The "Dal" as I call it, is my go to restaurant for live entertainment, great food/drink, service and comradery! Dianne Gire shines in the lounge at her keyboard and with her Karen Carpenter type voice--Thursday nights only! I call it a field trip, having to deal with the rush hour traffic to get there. It is all well worth it!
