About Dal Rae

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.

My family have been coming to Dal Rae since 1970. There is no better place to dine in my opinion. Great service, food, wine and atmosphere.
Always greeted by name by Kevin and Loren....by far a 5 star fine dining experience.
I recomend it highly to anyone who enjoys absolutely the best prepared food and will have you returning for more!

The hostess is highly unpleasant to deal with. Luckily the attitude did not extend to the dining room. The service in the dining room is friendly but the wait staff seemed unable to handle all of their tables.

Food is pretty good. Our waitress was amazing! Ambiance was really good. Our only concern was the woman that was the hostess that night. She was not very friendly & came off pretty rude a couple of times. Everyone in our group felt this way.

I am a frequent customer to Dal Rae but I can tell you that If this were my first time, I'd NEVER go Back. The service was Terrible, The Server was Terrible and the food was not as I ordered it. VERY DISAPPOINTING. The server actually seemed upset when I sent the food back. As I mentioned I am a Regular at Dal Rae and I'm sure ill be back but I can honestly say This visit was the Worst Experience was THE WORST. I've had better at Denny's. I don't know waiters name or I'd put him on blast but I do know if I ever get him again I'll quickly asked to be moved from his section. Not what I expect from Dal Rae

The restraurant is a "blast from the past!" the food and the service was all 5 star. We celebrated a Christmas Dinner with friends after a festive music concert and it was perfect. The wine list was very good and we indulged in 2 bottles. I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion because it is a little expensive, but as they say, you get what you pay for, and at this place you get every penny's worth! A 5 Star all the way.

The only complaint I have is the menu change. They have a holiday menu that is VERY limited. I ordered the turkey sandwich and it was very bland and the bread was very hard and dry. It was difficult to bite into the sandwich. I had to switch out the baguette bread for the bread they bring you when you first arrive. I loved the Christmas decorations, they are very festive and beautiful. I will be there again soon for a business meeting and will order something different. Our server was not very attentive but, maybe because they were busy. Still, for the prices at this place, we should have excellent service.

Food was amazing! Everyone enjoyed the Brie appetizer and their entrees. Unfortunately, when we arrived for this special occasion luncheon with reservations, we were shown to a banquet table meant for 3 people. We asked to be moved to a table with chairs because members in our party could not fit at this table. The seating hostess was short with me, and said they didn't have room. She moved us to a table in the bar area. The table itself was better, but we were at a table in the middle of the room and the bar was loud, and had people bumping our chairs ever few minutes - not what I wanted for a special holiday lunch for my staff. There was also many elderly people that were trying to negotiate the aisles, and it was very difficult due to the close proximity of the tables. I was disappointed.

I was there for a business lunch and it was very busy. I was a little sad that only the holiday menu was available, but understand given the extremely busy atmosphere of the season. My friend selected the Ahi salad which was not only beautiful but delicious as well. I had my old standby, Chilean Sea Bass, which was outstanding--perfectly cooked.

Great food, great service, but that was expected. I've been coming to this establishment since the 1990s. The food never disappoints. Parking is not a problem - they have valet. Prices of the food items are commensurate with taste and portions. Will, & have, recommended this place.

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CELEBRATION LOCATIONS. PRIME RIB IS FANTASTIC. STAFF FROM VALET TO HOSTESS TO BARTENDERS TO WAIT STAFF ARE ATTENTIVE AND HELPFUL. THEY SEEM TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU WANT BEFORE YOU DO. THEY SERVE A VEGI PLATE SO THAT YOU CAN NIBBLE WHILE CHECKING OUT THE MENU. THEY WERE DECORATED FOR THE HOLIDAYS--MOSTLY WHITE, BUT VERY TASTEFULLY DONE. NORMAL AMBIANCE IS LIKE A GENTLEMAN'S CLUB. LOOK FORWARD TO OUR NEXT VISIT.

Food was great and our bus boy was fanatic as for our waitress she was rude forgot some of our side dishes and we felt rushed by her she only came by when she had to bring us our food when it was time to pay we waited 20 minutes and she was no where to be found so another waitress took our bill hopefully when we go back we won’t get her again.

This was our seventh visit all on holidays. All were wonderful. This time made an 'Open Table' reservation a month ahead. Got there on time an annexed to a noisy side dinning area. No ambiance. Service was mediocre. Rushed. Dessert delivered while still eating main course. Was this because I booked on Open Table ? I have always in the past booked directly with the restaurant.

Our third time there. We started off great with friendly server, but the food arrival was VERY SLOW. Were they slammed?? It isn't holiday season yet, but they seemed not to be able to handle the crowd on Sunday evening. The food was very good, but service too slow, and we didn't get to see the server very often, timing on desserts was very off. When I asked to take home the rest of my dinner, all the busboy packed was the meat, not the veggies nor the potatoes. I didn't ask for only half my dinner to be packed, I asked for ALL my leftovers to go home with me. This was a major screw-up, yet we got no apology. I think this was a very poor showing of the usually good service at Dal Rae
