Disclaimer: My friend and I were recipients of the Free Baseball steak promotion. Review; We were provided the best service from the moment we valet'd (sp?) our vehicles through our return to said vehicles. We began our afternoon in the bar and Colby was fantastic!...More

The baseball steak was great - medium rare with truffle butter or peppered sauce. The lobster and Mac and Cheese was amazingly delicious. We ended the night with chocolate soufflé which the vanilla cream was dynamite. This 24hr 1921 dining car restaurant was featured in...More

This classic upscale 24-hour diner is delicious. Just a heads up this is on the pricey side so buyer beware. You have to get the baseball cut steak if so mouth-watering. Everything in the menu is made 24/7. It's located just a few minutes outside...More

I have visited the downtown Pacific Dining Car numerous times over the past few years because it is close to work and because they have a Groupon offer almost all the time. This classic steakhouse has been run by the same family since 1921 and...More

If you enjoy quality food served with the respect and attentiveness of the entire restaurant staff, you'll enjoy your meal coming here. A total Old School atmosphere which happens to be open 24 hours as a plus.

Service here was great...very attentive! But this place is a bit over rated and definitely over priced. Very good food though. They serve their steaks with a small bone and marrow. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered. Wedge salad with candied bacon was really...More

We ordered the Baseball steaks and lobster mac n cheese from the (discounted) late night menu. Everything was cooked to perfection. Shame we couldn't visit the area where the Training Day movie was filmed.

Always a favorite with locals, it's great for visitors too! A place to see (and be seen -- depending on how one views it), it's also a very unassuming place. Had enjoyed Goddess salad, grilled chicken, creamed spinach, and mashed potatoes, with all the fixings....More

I would give 4&1/2 star if I have a choice. Here are my pros and cons: Pro: 1. All staffs were very accommodating. 2. The ambiance was very soothing, and the decor is elegantly done (including the original curtains according to my waiter). 3. The...More
