Lunch Filet Pepper Steak
Same great flavor, 10oz portion
Dal Rae Chopped Salad
Crisp bacon, peeled tomato, avocado, turkey, onion, egg, grated blue cheese and Italian dressing
All booths, perfect special occasion for 4. Top notch service
Our waitress and our hostess was exceptionally nice and gave great customer service.
The first time we had the pleasure of dinning at this restaurant, we sat out on the patio due to Covid restrictions. Our friends took us there for my special birthday treat. The food was delicious, I had the filet, cocktails were spot on, and dessert oh my goodness! I love an old fashion steak house with romantic booths. I was hoping one day, I could go back and hopefully get one of those romantic booths once dine in restrictions are lifted. Just our luck last night. We had date night. Dressed up a bit and crossed our fingers for a booth to make it a perfect night. We got a booth! Dinner was delicious! My husband had the bone in rib eye and I had the large peppered filet! Both were excellent! He was in heaven with his bone in rib eye and an old fashion. Can’t wait to go back!
We went there for our 37th Anniversary and did not disappoint. Excellent food and service. Our favorite special occasion restaurant!
Everything was outstanding! Great for any special occasion or you just want a great dinner!
Don't know why but the food was average. Third time coming here and the steaks were overpriced and did not taste good.
Just not the same anymore. Everything was lacking from the service to the food& drink quality. So sad this has been a long time favorite.
Great dining ambience. It reminded me of a vintage casino fine dining restaurant. Great service and food.
The food and service are of highest quality. I love the ahi toast and the chilean sea bass alla Ben!
With no unusual surprises, excellent, as in the past . Nothing has changed and cannot wait to get back into full swing. Many thanks for the effort over this past year of Covid.
Expensive but worth it! Definitely more for a special occasion than a normal dine out
Excellent meal and service
Our waitress was especially terrific, friendly, and checked on us often.
Everything was great and the food was delicious. Our server was exceptional
I requested to dine inside on the open table app. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 5:30 dinner reservation and no one else was in line . The hostess sat us outside even though there was available seating inside. I let her know that we requested in door seating, her response was that it was a request but doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed. We asked if we could wait for an in door table and in a very serious expression said no. I did not bring a sweater because I was looking forward to eating in doors. The evening became breezy and fresh . I was concerned about catching cold. My contention is do not post options if you cannot deliver.
Food was delicious. My prime rib melted in my mouth and my husband’s pepper filet mignon was great!
Old school steak house. Great service.
We have been patrons since 1987. Everything about this fabulous restaurant will keep us going back. Thanks Loren and Kevin Smith
The Waitress was a sweet heart. She kept coming to see if everything was good and if my son and I need anything else and automatic did refills on waters and soft drinks. FOOD Chilean Sea Bass YUMMY..
It was our 50th anniversary on Saturday. What that would have meant for us would have been a trip to Europe, a big family party or both, butttttt not this year. Do, having gotten our vaccines and waited the required time for max immunity, we made a reservation at Dal Rae's. Unbeknownst to us, there is now a rustic addition to the eating area and we got seated out there. I told the waiter that it was our 50th and he made magic happened. They brought in an extra small table and set it just 6 feet away from everyone and we had a lovely dinner in the ambiance of the original dining area. Thank you Dal Rae for always having incredible food, a staff that is impeccably attentive and a lovely atmosphere for celebrating something special. You are always our choice for a lovely special evening.
I will definitely return. Food was delicious and service great.
It couldn’t have been better.
Sea bass was the best I’ve ever eaten. I’ll go back time and again just to have more.
Always great service and food!
The food was amazing and the service even better.
If there is a better restaurant someone needs to let me know? The Dal Rae is the most consistent restaurant with great food and service.
Great food, service, overall an outstanding dining experience.
The Dal Rae has the pepper steak by which all others are judged. The service and food are always outstanding. It is an old school place and is consistant.
Dinner and service was beyond expectation! We were there to celebrate the anniversary of the passing of my spouse. The server (Eileen) went out of her way to make our experience a pleasant and memorable one. Abalone is a special at the restaurant, and my dining companion (sister-in-law) ordered it, and said "It is out of this world!" It was rather expensive as abalone is not in abundance! But, we indulged! I had the double cut pork chop with whiskey rosemary sauce and they accommodated my request to put everything rosemary on the side. We started with the infamous caesar salad, and a toast. We ended our perfect evening with two servings of layer cake with a candle (on the house).
Great restaurant. My daughters grew up going there. Always consistent.
The service was exceptional and very friendly
As always excellent. The food and service are exceptional!
Fantastic service. Food and drinks were excellent! You should definitely make your reservation and experience for yourself.
I have bad experienced with the Usher. I have made a reservation online at 7 pm Sunday to confirm a inside seat to dine in restaurant. Actually, my group were preferred to book at 6pm because we were very hungry but we don't want to eat outside of the restaurant, so we were still booked at 7pm. Plus, restaurant worker have called me to confirm for dine-in reservation. But when we were arrival, the usher has just told us that our group couldn't be dine-in/inside of the restaurant. I was very upset when my group were arrival to the restaurant and usher just told me I couldn't dine in with an attitude to state that the restaurant does not guarantee on it. Then, what is meaningful to make a reservation!!! If not guarantee to dine in, it should state clear in advance, not just said it at arrival.
The Dal Rae is the best place to go for a time capsule of when going out to dinner, was a true experience. Hopefully, as the restaurant businesses gain traction again, we can enjoy a tableside dinner for 2, with cherries jubilee to finish.
I heard a lot about this place for years. Dal Rae met expectations even while not fully operational during the pandemic. I highly recommend the prime rib
Wonderful as usual. So glad they are back for indoor dining. We felt very safe. Very enjoyable
Really enjoyed this restaurant. Food and service was Excellent!
The Dal Rae never disappoints! They helped me arrange a small party for my husband the food was excellent the service was excellent and a special thank you to our server Robert for being super attentive to both tables all night!
We sat in the front bar patio. It was a little loud because we were so close to the street, but other than that, it was great. Loved the food and loved the service.
My parents began going to this establishment in the late 50s when we lived in Whittier, Ca. I remember them getting dressed up for New Year's or a special occasion and going to the Dal Rae. I took my Mother there for her 99th birthday this last Friday, despite her end stage Alzheimers, she knew where she was when she tasted her favorite Vodka Gimlet. This is a fine dining establishment that serves the best continental cuisine. There are very few places like this anymore. I hope I can take my mom for her 100th. You can bet in-between I will visit at least 5-6 times. I live in Southern Orange County and I am not limited by taste or budget, I pass a lot of places to eat here because it is truly the best.
