The food is great and the drinks are well made. This is where we have spent many memorable birthdays and romatic dinners. It's interesting to see so many long time customers there. You can just tell they've been going there for years and I 'm always running to people I know here. The piano bar is one of a kind and you can hear it throughout the entire restaurant through the speakers. It has an old school Rat Pack vibe mixed in with three generations of clients.

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.\r\n\r\nPrices were in par with other fine dinning steakhouses if not a tad less (mortons, Mastros etc) \r\n\r\nWe had Jasmine as our waitress. She was very nice and attentive to our needs even though it was busy. \r\n\r\nWill be going back!

Pros: Great food & Martini's

Cons: Overpriced

The Dal Rea is a real nice time out to an upscale dinner. The joint has been around since the 1950s. So even if its 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.

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. \r\n(but who goes to a restaurant for the waiting room)\r\n\r\nThe atmosphere was a mix of older and middle aged couples/ families.\r\n\r\nThe 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. \r\n\r\nPositive overall experience. \r\n\r\n

Pros: great food, nostalgic atmosphere, prices

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.

Pros: Old but Clean place inside with a nice interior

Cons: Average quality & expensive prices, A Senior Citizen Place, Must pay for Parking

.

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.

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.

Pros: best f'n salad ever

Cons: it has to be table side in order for it to taste good because take out is not the same

.

This place was amazing! I would go back in a second. It looks like a steakhouse from the outside, but everything was delicious. The ceasar salad made table side was a treat that I haven't experienced for a long while. There aren't many restaurants these days that do table side, and you could taste the difference because of it. The service was impecable - This family owned restaurant is not one to miss! I recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic atmosphere, live music, and fabulous surf AND turf.

I'm originally from New York and have been looking for a great restaurant for a long time. I went to the Dal Rae on a recommendation from a friend. My experience was great the wait was minimal maybe 10 minutes thats pretty good for a busy Friday night. The food was outstanding! For appetizers we had the Alaskan King crab that tasted like they just grabbed it out of the ocean, and shrimp scampi, which was also great. The caesar salad was made table side which was enjoyable to watch. Then came the main course....Filet Mignon. It was butter in my mouth! I've been to Peter Lugars and this takes the cake! It was hard but I saved room for dessert. The table shared Banana Flambe made table side topped the dinner off. \r\n\r\n\r\nIf your looking for a great steakhouse/seafood to make your mouth water this is it. \r\n\r\n

i recently went to Dal Rae on a recommendation from a friend. i was looking forward to an excellent dinner but instead got seated late, then had to sit there for two hours before we even got our salads. it was crowded and i understand things can back up but not one person came by to explain or checkin with our party. drinks, water and bread also came late after repeated requests. once the food did come, my steak was very dry and lacked any flavor. i took three bites and completely lost my appetite. this has never happened at other steak houses such as mortons, nick & stef's, delmonico's, ruth christe, and mastro's. it's very apparent why those places are better know for atmosphere, great food, and awesome service. dal rae is not close. even if they are trying to be a local neighboorhood place and more low key then the other places it still falls quite short.

This was my second time at this restaurant. The service was great, the crab cakes & the chilean sea bass were superb. The restaurant was packed and it's only Tuesday! The prices are a bit steep but the food is well worth the price. The service was good.

I have lived in Pico and the presence of Mercedes and Rolls Royce in this hidden, non-showy restaurant was always in question...I mean the restaurant is right next to a Jack In the Box so I really thought nothing of it....well the wait was a bit long but the food was great, pricey but great...it can get pretty loud in there but just to feel as if you are in some ritzy place feels awesome, only to walk out and realize that you are in this little town with nothing speacial...the restaurant is great to dine and impress....

Dal Rae exhibited the basic textbook lesson on ""how not to treat a customer"" Despite making a reservation and arriving well before the reservation time, my party of (7) were not seated until 50 minutes later. This is after we volunteered to seat at the bar area. Once seated it took another 25 minutes and for me to go to the manager to get any attention from the wait person. The busboy placed butter on the table but it took another 15 minutes for the bread to arrive and again after repeated request from the manager and the wait person. When my party was finally given the attention, the attitude from an unkept [hair was all over the place, it did not look very professional or sanitary] wait person was unfriendly and full of attitude. The food was poor quality the the shrimp scampi was not fresh, the meat even though it was requested at medium well arrive medium rare. The garlic bread was soggy and greasy. The Ceasar salad [prepared at the table] was parked for 15 minutes prior to anyone preparing and serving it to our party. We were not even offered drinks, just water, even that took a long time. Unfortunately for a party of 7 tip was already included, Dal Rae staff did not deserve any gratuity --they have no idea what it means to offer good customer service. It was the worst dining experience we all have experienced. Consumers beware with all the positive reviews of this restaurant that is currently on file.

We had a dinner reservation for 2 people early on a Friday evening. When we arrived we were told by the Hostess it would be a 30 minute wait. After an hour we were still not seated evne though we spotted an empty booth; after some discussion and receiving some attitude from the Hostess, she finally agreed to seat us. The wait was attitude was a bit a big disappointment, but the service in the dining room was great and the food was very good. Sea Bass and Steak was very good. Dal Rae was nicely decorated for the Hoildays and it is a nice place to take a date, but don't make any other plans for the evening.\r\n\r\n \r\n

The atmosphere and service are excellent at this restaurant. My family and I have been going for more than 10 years! The food is always delicious and never a disappointment! I highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass, baked! The staff goes out of their way to please. You cant experience it without having your cesar salad prepared tableside in front of you or the bananas flambee or cherries jubilee!

On top of the ambience, this restaurant has some of the best meals I've had in LA. Instead of going to the trendy movie-star owned restaurants where the plates are decorated more with garnish than actual food, I prefer to eat at the Dal Rae every night of the week! It's consistantly delicious with so many options that I've never gotten sick of eating there. Definitely a place I could eat (and DO eat) several times a week! Try the whitefish a-la-ben (prepared with grilled onions) or the roasted duck (in an orange sauce).

I am constantly looking for a restaurant in LA that has a real vibe- a place that hasn't sold out to the Hollywood scene of small portions and loud music. The Dal Rae IS that place! It feels like a 50s mob movie set, with dark wood, a piano bar, and red leather booths. The food is exquisite and classic, with generous portions. My personal favorites include the Ahi on Toast appetizer, the fresh fish menu, and bananas flambee served tableside for dessert. In how many restaurants does the owner still walk the dining room, checking on tables and preparing Ceasar Salad or Cherry's Jubilee in front of you? It's a perfect place for a romantic dinner or an impressive business lunch. I highly recommend it.

The Dal Rae is a fabulous restaurant with a glamorous retro vibe. If you are a small party (4 or less) and want a more casual experience, make reservations in the bar area. You can order dinner, cocktails and watch the lounge act. Otherwise, reserve a table a bit earlier - or later - on a Friday or Saturday.\nThere's even a private outdoor smoking patio, with a 50s-modern fireplace, where after dinner drinks and cigars can be enjoyed. It's worth the drive if you are looking for good food, great service and a little indulgence.

The decor is elegant, the service was very good by Awhny, a Jennifer Garner look alike,Lots of women in black walking around, reminded me of the apprentice episode. Mixed drinks were pitiful at best. I was dissapointed by the Famous pepper steak, I was not wowed!! The dessert was good Apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream . I felt like sardine, they pack as many people as they can. It was a Saturday though, so I understand they were busy.

I discovered this restaurant about 5 years ago, and on my first visit there the multiple Rolls Royces in the parking lot screamed, ""you're not in Pico Rivera anymore"", and if you know the area, you know that's really something. I now request Dal Rae for my birthday meal, you should too. You won't be disappointed.

I've seen this place for a long time driving by and never paid much attention other than the fact it looks like a cool old 50s style building. I noticed all the nice cars and valets one day and thought it was strange for Pico Rivera, so I looked it up on the net and it seemed pretty cool. Wife and I went for dinner one night and though its not cheap the food was REALLY good (pepper steak is recommended) and the bar has a cool old-style vibe to it. HIGHLY reccomended.

For many years Ive read about the Dal Rae, finally for our anniversary my husband & I decided to check out this place. Nice ambience even if your business casual. 1st came the relish tray, nice crisp veggies & the breadbasket. Next was the oysters Rockefeller, then salad and the hot garlic cheese bread. We had the Lobster Thermidor and pepper steak. We were stuffed from our previous courses but we did manage to taste both of these dishes. The thermidor was excellent just the right balance of mushrooms, cream & lobster. The pepper steak filet was so tender, the black pepper is a bit overwhelming at first but it is a good balance. For desert we had the best chocolate souffle. Go and enjoy. Our average cost was $63.00 per person.

The Dal Rae, which opened in 1958 (the sign out front gives it away), is a throwback to another era, and its longevity is our good fortune. All of the classic Escoffier-inspired dishes you came to love as a child when you were taken to a…
