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.

This truly is a great throwback to a time when people dressed up and had a civilized conversation and enjoyed fine dining. It’s a true classic. Food was traditional and very well prepared and presented. Great job for keeping it old school!!!

We’ll be back...

My teammate and I went for dinner at the recommendation of our hotel staff (stayed in Rosemead for work) as to what best steak restaurant to send us to. It was 9 miles away and we were lucky that Del Rae won the argument between the hotel staff. We loved it - and it will memorable meal after a LONG day of work. Our server was adorable and loved her job. Food was perfect-o and delicious. Some may think it 'expensive" but for the quality and quantity it was perfect. Recommend it to anyone in the area.

It was our first time making the long drive from Long Beach. It was well worth it and we would choose it again for our next special occasion which will probably be my husband's 85th birthday. The variety of the menu made the choices difficult but we were both well pleased and thoroughly enjoyed the special treat for our anniversary.

My father has been going to this steakhouse for over 35 years, and this is a hidden gem in the area. This place is so outstanding with service, we hadn't dined here in over 10 years, the valet, as we're waiting for my car, goes to greet my father by name. That is exactly what this place is about, making you feel at home and welcomed. Now to the food, steak is always superb, always order the peppered steak, and the waitress was so amazing, even brought a piece of cake to celebrate my father's bday which was a week ago. All in all, I can assure you, this restaurant is a tradition in the family and for very good reasons.

Dal Rae never disappoints. If you are expecting delicious food and excellent service, this is where you should be. We always ask for Dawn because she is so friendly and anticipatory and fun to be with. Her "sidekicks" are always on top of things filling your glasses and bringing additions. The food is always excellently prepared and while I know liver is not on everyone's list; it is to die for. Perfectly cooked. Highly recommend the Dal for any occasion.

I’ve been coming to eat at Dal Rae since 2009. It’s one of the absolute best restaurants in all of Los Angeles. Their food remains consistent and service is always on point.

One of my favorite appetizers is the Fried Rock Shrimp cooked extra crispy. It’s kind of like an orange shrimp from the Chinese restaurants but better.

For salads, you gotta try their Caesar Salad. Made fresh right in front of you. It’s the best Caesar salad I’ve ever had.

For my meal I shared a tomahawk steak. It’s 38 ounces of greatness. Super thick and tender with full of flavor. My business partner loved it.

For Dessert, a must order is the Banana Flambé. They make the sauce and dessert right in front of you. It’s incredible. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

Started out at the bar for Happy Hour. Our waitress, Sonia, was very attentive and professional. She made a point to make us feel we were important and she addressed our needs quickly and efficiently. She answered questions we asked and provided information and suggestions in response to our situation. She came back often and asked if we needed anything and if everything was OK. The receptionist at the desk by the entrance was also very helpful in making sure we got the booth we requested and she even came into the bar area to let us know that the booth was ready when it was time for us to leave the bar and go into the restaurant for dinner. Our diner waitress, Erin, was also very attentive and provided excellent service from introducing herself to us and going over the menu options, providing information helping us select the perfect dinner choice for each of us. She was very patient and an excellent server.
She paid extra attention to detail and her personality was very customer friendly. She was obviously very experienced at her job and professional. She paid attention to our needs from the time we arrived at her table until we left. We were extremely pleased with the wine and beer selections. The meals we ordered were excellent. The ambiance was pleasant and elegant. We were delighted at the overall experience. We plan to return for special occasions. We were celebrating Bev and Jeff Blossom's 25th wedding aniversary (a bit late because their actual date was in November, but we wanted the place to be Del Rae & we finally made it there). The waitress made sure we were treated with a complimentary slice of delicious chocolate cake, lighted with a candle and she personally acknowledged their anniversary with sincere congratulations. So, thank you very much, Del Rae for making our dining experience special and memorable :-) Carole Blossom (Mother of Jeff Blossom)
(We anticipate the next visit to Del Rae!!!)

The place feels tight, tables are near to each other, we sat at our table around 5:40pm ... food was served almost 7:00pm , kids were so hungry. My advice is too eat a light snacks before coming to this resto . The food that we ordered were so delicious and tasty... No regrets.
