The Dal Rae is the Southern California restaurant where 1950s classics still reign. Lobster thermidor, pepper steaks, chateaubriand, prime
rib, steak diane and fresh seafood are among more than 100 items on the menu. Opened in 1958, the Del Rae has maintained its original atmosphere too, right down to a piano bar with live entertainment and a dance floor.
Located in Pico Rivera, the Dal Rae is easy to reach from downtown Los Angeles, the Valleys, Los Angeles International airport, Orange County . . . just about anywhere in Southern California. …
I went here because off the reviews. This was probably some of the best food Ive had in a real long time. We had the filet with the pepper sauce that was really good and the sea bass was amazing too. The sea bass was different. It was made with a cheese that encrusted the fish with some onions.
Prices were in par with other fine dinning steakhouses if not a tad less (mortons, Mastros etc)
We had Jasmine as our waitress. She was very nice and attentive to our needs even though it was busy.
Will be going back!
Good Local Steakhouse but. Good food & drinks overall. Inattentive service & overpriced everything. Smells a little old too.
Good Hip Joint. The Dal Rea is a real nice time out to an upscale dinner. The joint has been around since the 1950’s. So even if it’s been remolded a bit, there is still a cool swank to the place. I had the French Onion soup “C+”, a Cesar Salad made fresh at the table “ B”, a tasty Prime Rib Eye on the bone toped with crisp fried onions and green beans on the side and a baked potato “B-”, a good Bread Pudding a “B-”. Unfortunately they server one of the cheep brands of restaurant coffee like Farmers Brothers brand. With 3 drinks it was about $70-80 for me. I prices were a bit high for the area... it would have been ok if it was located in a hip part of town in L. A. somewhere.
BEST in CA. LOVe this place!! Take me back, take me back ..now!!
One of the best east of the 710 Frw.. Its the best "politico" place to go in the area, where deals get done. As a kid, I would pass Dal Rae regularly. Just a year ago, my friend invited me to dinner there and I've returned twice. Piano music adds to the ambiance. I haven't had a dish I didn't like and the cocktails are excellent.
Went there recently because of he reviews. The waiting room was small but it opened up to the bar where my family sat down a had a drink prior to seating.
(but who goes to a restaurant for the waiting room)
The atmosphere was a mix of older and middle aged couples/ families.
The tableside cesear salad was an eye opener since I have never experienced this before. It was pretty good. As a main course I had the pepper steak. It was amazing, one of the best. (and I've been to ever steakhouse in california) It was cooked perfectly. My wife had the seabass which she loved as well. My whole family loved the food.
Positive overall experience.
Good Food, Seems mostly a Senior Citizen place. When me and my friend and two ladies ate there, it was quite an experience - an area where our girls said "no way" to going there again. Then we had to pay valet for parking, because this is the only way to park here, or go far down the street, also watch out for door dings, they park the cars very close. Then this place has about a 8' by 8' waiting area - and can get pretty incomfortable if you are not seated right away. Its an OLD place, but the service was nice and the food, I'd rate it a 6 (1 to 10 scale, 10 being best). It is mostly steak, and some seafood, with a bar area. The prices are TERRIBLE, too high for what you get. You'll mostly see the OVER 60 AGE CROWD HERE, so if you fit into this, it might be ok for you.
I read, I went and I wont go back. I went due to all the great reviews I read on here but was really disappointed. Food was ok but not great. Maybe it was the rude service from our waitress, having to pay for vallet parking "probably the only place in pico that has vallet LOL" or the snobby atmosphere "snobs who dine in PICO RIVERA???" that made the experiance unjoyable for me. Maybe it was a case of wrong place at the wrong time but wasnt that good to try it again.
Prime Rib. Have not had any problems in getting seated, service and with the quality of the food since going there about 10 years now. Maybe a little crowded but expected for saturdays. Make reservations for early dinner around 5:30-6pm. Have had most of the appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts on the menu and all tasted good. But ,still miss Del Conte in Torrance for their Prime Rib , King Crab legs and their salad with the Green Goddess Dressing. Can't find another place like that in the South Bay area.
table side ceaser salad ooooooooohhhhhh **drooling like home*. Table side Ceaser salad for 2 was the best tasting salad I have ever had in my life, Simply the best hands down.
