The restaurant is so dark you need your phone light to read the menu. The Caesar salads have way too much chopped garlic. I actually think there must have been 1/4 cup in our 2 salads. The veal Oscar was not very tender and the sea bass was a little overcooked. The chocolate souffle was excellent and not raw in the middle. It was light and fluffy and the cream was yummy.
Love this place. Our go to for nice dinner out. Old school classy feel. Wonderful ambiance. Baked Brie is delicious along with petite filet. Great bread and crudités. Grand mariner soufflé a must.
Hubby and I first time there for our anniversary is was okay. My hubby was not feel to good after we got home from restaurant. He was in and out of restroom x4 times
One of my favorite places. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.
Celebrating our 33rd Anniversary
Lobster with mushroom was too hard...i wished it was soft like.. it was like me chewing gum.. lobster should not be hard
Great spot for an anniversary. Or Valentine's. The food was amazing like always. And the service was great.
Great business diner at this fine long time LA establishment.
Food was delicious! Service was super slow where we were seated. Server was not personable.
Very disappointed! Had a 8:30 p.m. reservation, but we got there @ 7:00 p.m. And got some drinks at the bar(Caddilac Margueritas, and fine wine.) Checked in @ 8:20 p.m. was Sat a little later. From there on everything went sour. First they didn't ask if we had any preference where we would like to sit (we would of stood at the bar to wait to be seated at our preference) they took us straight to the outside where there was no music, then it started to get worse, it took 1/2hr. (Literally) to get any drinks. Plus to make things worse we didn't get our food till 9:40p.m. if I knew the food was going to take this long, my wife and I would have not ordered The Ribeye and Lobster. Then they bring the bill. $460.00 dollars + tip($500.00 bill). I went to Dal Rae for high end service. The only thing I received that night was high end, was a high end check.
This is a great place to have lunch or dinner. The food is delicious!!
Had not been back to Dal Rae in a long time and the food was just as I remembered, excellent! I had the Chilean Sea Bass, my wife had the Prime Rib and our daughter had the Filet. All cooked to perfection.
Amazing food! Steaks, Chilean seabass, oysters Rockefeller . Great Service. Never disappoints!
We had a reservation for Valentines Day. We had a good table. Although the restaurant was crowded, the noise level was not too bad. Great food, great service, terrific atmosphere.
Everything was amazing! They have the best creme brulee I that I have ever had, it is soooooooo good.
I have heard so much about this place but have never been. So I made early dinner reservations on Valentine’s Day. My personal opinion is that it is way overrated. My wife and I have been to many nice restaurants, but this isn’t one of them. Place is rather worn down but has a rather snobby attitude about it. Waitress had no knowledge of the wines they offered. I ordered the filet mignon peppersteak which they are supposed to be famous for, medium rare. My wife ordered the ribeye cooked medium. My filet came out medium well and hers came out medium rare. We informed the waitress, and all she said was “did you like it? I’ll make sure and tell the kitchen”. That was it, no attempt to make it right in any way. I’m not one to make a scene or ask for management to come talk to me, so we just left, $320+ dinner for 2 disappointment . Never will return. We enjoyed our bottle of Barolo, but that was about it.
Great food, great service, great drinks! Always walk away extremely satisfied and happy! Looking forward to our next visit!
The ambience and decor is much nicer than any photos let on, and the nose level is just right, not too loud but still very quiet. The good was great as well, they make steaks and they make them good!
Wonderful Valentines lunch. Our favorite place to go every year for good food and attentive but non intrusive service.
We live in Orange County, but the Dal Rae is our favorite restaurant. It has been for 25 years. There food is the best. Bar none.
This is truly one of the last of this style of restaurant left in Southern California. There used to be more of these, including "Tail of the Cock" in Beverly Hills area. The old standards that are still around are Musso & Franks (which has lost it's charm and the food and service the last time was way below par). "Lawry's" has also slipped quite a bit from where it was once. So, the Dal Rae is now the place to go if you are looking to turn back the clock to mid-century. The decor is right, the service is exceptional and they still make certain dishes table side--Caesar Salad and flaming Bananas Foster are two examples. Plus, yes . . . a relish tray to start. Want to impress your friends, this is the place. Make it special and dress up and get ready for a retro experience. Their Pepper steak keeps me coming back. Well worth the drive. Enjoy! Denito
My wife and I went for a early Valentine’s day lunch today. Doing this today avoided a Special Valentine’s Day menu, long waits and the crowds.
We started out with delicious old school cocktails from the bar, that were prepared perfectly.
We started off with chopped salad, (Crisp Bacon, Peeled Tomato, Avocado, Turkey, Onion, Egg, Grated Bleu Cheese & Marinara Dressing). We asked to split the salad as it is quite large (Entrée size) and big enough to split.
They delivered a breadbasket that was plentiful w/ delicious sourdough, spicy cracker bread & traditional wrapped breadsticks. It went perfectly with the salad.
For my entrée I had the poor man’s pepper steak. It is a ground angus beef patty smothered in green onions and bacon, omg so good!
It came with their extra creamy mashed potatoes that looked like clouds and they taste amazing light airy and smooth. It also had roasted asparagus on the side....simply great
My wife had the Chicken piccata it looked delicious, but I actually didn't try it. It came with the mashed potatoes and sautéed zucchini. It was a little different presentation for chicken piccata as it was prepared with an airline chicken breast (boneless chicken breast with the drumette attached). My wife said it was excellent.
From the valet to the server the service was exceptional. I would definitely recommend it. Lorin the owner dropped by to say Hi.
Thanks Kevin and Lorin for continuing the tradition for all these years.
AS PER USUAL, SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT STARTING WITH THE VALET, HOST, AND CONTINUING WITH THE WAITRESS AND BUS STAFF. MY FRIEND HAD THE STEAK SANDWICH WHICH WAS COOKED TO PERFECTION AND ENOUGH TO TAKE SOME HOME. I HAVE THE CRAB LOUIE SALAD WHICH WAS HUGH AND EXTREMELY TASTY. THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAD WAS THAT IT TOOK A LONG TIME FOR THE FOOD TO COME OUT OF THE KITCHEN. PART OF THAT WAS DUE TO THE DATE (DAY BEFORE VALENTINE'S DAY) AND TIME (12:15). THE RESTAURANT WAS VERY, VERY BUSY. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR NEXT VISIT, BUT WILL TIME IT DIFFERENTLY.
When my wife and I want to sit down and experience a delicious steak there’s no other place we would rather go. This is an old-school steakhouse experience that you can’t pass up
Dal Rae is our favorite restaurant. Never disappoints. Highest quality foods and best service. The prime rib is the best. The Lawry’s restaurants would be second. My wife had the sea bass. She loved it.
We took some friends out to dinner and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Great food, drinks and ambience. The only difficulty is trying to walk through the restaurant because they pack it in so tight but it’s well worth it.
This is one of our special occasion places and once again, it did not let us down...
