We were very well taken care of by their staff from the minute we walked in the door until we we walked out! Food was delicious as usual and our server was thee best!!!
Great customer service right out from the parking lot. Food was exceptional all the steaks we ordered was cooked correctly (temperature wise). Our drinks came out pretty strong, which is not a bad thing. overall great experience, will recommend and come back again.
Very nice lunch
Always great service, food and ambiance. Dal Rae is a must.
I've been to Dal Rae a few times before and I really enjoyed it every time. I live the ambiance it feels very classy without trying. The service is great and everyone is friendly. Everyone really enjoyed the food this last time we went, but I was kind of disappointed in my Duck al' Orange. I'm not saying it was bad or anything and I was not sure what I was expecting, but for $38 I was left a little flat. I will be back as this is one of my favorite places to go for a special night out.
Great cocktails our waitress, Liz, the GM, Gabriel and the busboy, Dorian, were outstanding. I don't think I've ever written a review for a bus boy, however, Dorian, was one of the friendliest people I have ever met. His customer service and outlook on life were incredible. He's on his way to much success!
Food and service was amazing. Definitely returning.
Fantastic look forward to going back for great food
Always great service & food. Thank you
Overall everything was great. Perfect date night and great service.
Best Friends Birthday
All of the staff was courteous and made sure we had what we ordered. Our server Lidia was fantastic
We love this spot. Our server, Raquel made the evening. She was attentive to our needs and made sure our wine was always filled. We recommend the Rockefeller oysters, baked scallops, lamb chops and wagyu. The whole menu is amazing.
Food was outstanding and our server, Dawn was terrific. Attentive just right!!! The swordfish was done to perfection. Loved that the Christmas decorations were still up.
Everything was great. The food, the service and the ambiance! Will definitely head back here soon!
Delicious & wonderful as usual!
Diane was wonderful as our server. The busboy was very attentive. But that’s what I expect from Loren
We had a Birthday dinner w family and we truly enjoyed food service atmosphere, only it was a bit crowded but outside of that we had very nice Time. And the valet parking service was awesome .
We had a good experience with service and food.
This is my families special place to go for celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We love the classic dinner club feel and the food never dissapoints.
Celebrate a late Christmas Dinner.
Probably the best pepper steak we ever had.The Rockefeller oysters are delicious! Very attentive waiters. Over all was an excellent experience!
Great- love going there
Great food great service
As usual very nice!
I have been eating here for over 10 years I absolutely love the food, too. Too bad they took off some menu items that I loved. Can’t wait for the chocolate soufflé to come back
We got seated late. Very slow service. Prime rib served was very rare when asked for medium. Waitress forgot to serve our appetizer
Amazing food, service exceptional, server went beyond to make sure are dining experience was amazing
New Years dinner
Extremely busy night , waited an hour to be seated but food, staff and servers never disappoint.
Everything was great as usual. I don't think someone should go there with the thought of a value place to eat. It's a restaurant that serves excellent food with excellent service.
My wife and I have been celebrating our wedding anniversary every year for the past 9 years having dinner at the Del Rae on New Years Eve, which is when we got married. We usually go with family and/or friends or both to have a great dinner and conversation. This New Years Eve we took my mother in law along with our daughter and a few friends to celebrate. My mother in law remembers back in the day when she would go there with her husband, mom, dad and family for a great steak dinner! The staff there treat you like family and tend to your every need, we love it! I recommend the Del Rae to all my family and friends if you want to have a great time and great food! Thank you!
Valarie and the new kid who boxed our dinner were awesome. Very easy to talk to. Would differently like to sit in there section again.
Absolute great restaurant I've been going there for 60 years and it is consistently good
A very cozy setting elegantly decorated for the holidays. Welcoming atmosphere with a professional and efficient wait staff. Love this iconic classic steakhouse with an excellent seafood menu. Love this classy fine dining establishments.
Dal Rae continues to maintain high quality food and service.
Went with a friend couple and all four of us enjoyed dinner very much. The room was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Menu is old school classic with some modern twists. Food is fresh and prepared expertly. Highly recommend this place.
We LOVE The Dal Rae! Wonderful service, beautiful ambience, great food! Highly recommended. Particularly great for special occasions.
The food was fantastic and the service excellent. The place is very pretty and comfortable. My only complaint is that we had to wait for about half an hour even though we had a reservation.
Just wanted to treat my son daughter-in-law and daughter and son-in-law do a great dinner. My daughter had never been to the del Rae although I have been going since the 70s
