WON 2021 THE "BEST IN SOUTHLAND" FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES. IN THE SAN GABRIEL VALLEY,SOUTH BAY, AND THE SAN FERNADO VALLEY.
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.

    I asked for medium well, was very red. Had to send back to be cooked. Very good when I got my food back. Skillet potatoes greasy and not cooked enough, inside potato not cooked. We have had much better ones.

    Definitely recommend!! Place was extremely busy and packed. Service at first was a little slow. But well worth the wait!! Server, manager and all employees went beyond to make sure we were happy and satisfied. At one point one of our drinks wasn’t right and they immediately fixed it. No hassle, no attitude, just great service!!!

    The service was great, waiter and waitress were very informative and everything was accurate. The fish platter we ordered was delicious. The filet mignon I ordered was unfortunately super bland, and this was their signature plate. Their bread pudding was very good.

    We had 7pm reservations and were seated immediately. Our server was Samantha and she was outstanding. The Kitchen failed to make one of their specialties; Onion Soup. Two of our party of six ordered it! When the others were served their salads, we asked when our soup course would be served? Ou server said: No soup for you. We were not very pleased!! For dessert, we ordered (3) Soufflés. The Soufflés here have always been a highlight, but not this time, as all were under baked and a soupy mess. Management needs to tighten up the kitchen staff here.

    First time here came for Valentine’s dinner. This place needs to be updated big time. From the outside with there big 1970s sign it looks like a bowling alley building. Inside when you walk in and greet the host there’s popcorn ceiling above you where you’re waiting to be seated. lol I haven’t seen popcorn ceiling in decades. We got seated and they had only a valentines menu for the night 3 course for $130 each person and to share they charged $8 dollars. We looked on line found regular menu and saw the things they offered for $130 limited menu if purchased individually on a regular night it was cheaper than $130 We chose the French onion soup and Caesar salad both weee horrible. Salad seemed like they opened a market brand plastic bagged yellow lettuce salad mixed with dressing 3 croutons and served you. The soup was worse there was no broth in the French onion just bread lots of bread and onions with a little cheese on top I took a picture of soup will post online we returned both I exchanged my salad for clam chowder(the watered down version) date just retuned her soup got disappointed. Took to spoonfuls of clam chowder was saddened to see it wasn’t thick at all it was mostly watery. Waiter picked up then we waited 30 minutes for our entrees. Date got 8 ounce filet minon it was ok but her bake potato was cold and they only put 2 small pieces of asparagus on her plate. I ordered lobster thermador now that was unique full of hollandaise sauce and mushrooms with only 2 chunks of lobster in each tail. My plate the sans 2 small asparagus and cold bake potato. We nibbled on those and that ordered our dessert tiramisu small piece and chocolate mouse or something like that another small piece. Both were not homemade you can tell they were frozen because they both had no taste and were perfectly cut. Final bill $296 without tip 2 dinners 1 martini 1 soda 1 coffee. Was it worth it? No way. Did they overcharge from regular menu? Yes they did look online for yourself

    We came for our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately we were super disappointed. Our drinks were not made well, we sent it back, the service was pretty vague and seemed uninterested, she even forgot our beverage order. When it was time for our meal, our prime rib that we have ordered before just was tough and the garlic mashed potato’s seemed liked they were microwaved :( our time there just felt really rushed and we were just really disappointed.

    We tried the seafood combination appetizer and it was amazing. The prime rib is the best in town and finished with cherry jubilee which was not available for a while. Just an amazing experience.

    Very Romantic and highly comparable to Ruth’s Chris. Food was great. The ribeye was extremely tender as expected. Perfectly met my standards here.
