Dal Rae

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

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.

The Dal Rae has been a longtime dining destination for me. This classic 1950's steakhouse evokes Mad Men style and days of the supper clubs. I head they offer excellent steaks and table side preparations.


Walking into the majestic dining room and bar truly feels like a blast from the past. Rows of men in suits with hats blended in with the modern day, casual Southern California style. One thing that was clear was the history and style evident in every nook of the Dal Rae.


Part of the experience is having an old school steak dinner, complete with ice chilled vegetable tray, garlic cheese bread, fully loaded baked potato and a decadent sundae for dessert.


One of the tastiest parts of the meal was hands down, the peppercorn steak. And you will not leave the table hungry. This tender steak is a double filet mignon expertly seared on the outside and pink in the middle. A bountiful crust of scallions, pepper, garlic and other seasonings covers this steak, and the whole thing comes on top of a silky red wine peppercorn jus. It melts in your mouth. Overall, it is one of the more majestic steaks I've had in town.
