I've already recommended it to a few people since I had lunch there an hour or so ago...FANTASTIC! Service was impeccable, Alex came out and spoke to, was extremely gracious, and treated us to something quite special. The food was superb, the wine & wine selection wonderful, the service was the best I've had at a restaurant in sometime. I will definitely be back...soon! More

From the valet forward great service. Took sometime to get drink order in and bread bowl needed to be requested, though other tables were served almost immediately. These were the only slight issues with service. Atmosphere the night we were there was terrible, literally like being at Chucky Cheese. Many children running, actually running around restaurant, hanging over food in service area and parents were non pulsed. Bizarre night. Food....OMG AMAZING! We are definitely going back and taking child repellent More

When I checked in at the restaurant, they seemed to be totally oblivious to the fact that I had a reservation for six people. One would think that someone would look at the reservation list and have a table set up for a group of six. Most of the tables are set for 2 or 4. Fortunately it was not busy and they were able to accommodate us easily. The food is adequate, but nothing special, especially for the price. The service was very good and attentive. We'll return but probably not worry about making a reservation, and not for the food. More

Nice decor. Salmon risotto was delicious. Wished that the restaurant had its own valet parking for less fee. I paid $12 for the valet just to have lunch. More

It was perfect from the minute we walked it. We were going to the Ahmanson for a play at 8pm and had a 5:45 reservation. They kept us on track with our ordering and bringing the food. We even had time to order dessert, get the check and pay and leave in plenty of time. The food was creative and delicious we will be back for sure! More

Fine fine fine. :-) Always love Dal Rae. My filet was a bit less than a perfect 10 but it was very large! Dal Rae always seats us when we arrive even if we are early. Service is always fantastic! Reminiscent of a 50's Steak House but upgraded since then and very nice inside. Come here, you'll love it. More
