Pacific Dining Car
Open 24 hours, carnivores flocking to this meat Mecca for huge steaks will receive only the finest cuts available. The crowd is eclectic, as every generation has its meat lovers. The portions are so huge that no matter what time you chow down, you might need a nap to recover from all the artery-clogging delicacies. This is a great choice for dining before or after an event at the nearby Staples Center . The restaurant even offers a free shuttle service to and from your event.
the food is amazing. all of the sauces that accompany the prime steaks are top notch. it has been around for quite some time and the reason is because they know how to make good food. the atmosphere is old and rustic, but that is their style. they are also open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. there is no equal to the way they do business. the service was also very good. i can't wait to go back.
PDC caters to business people, so no crazy screaming kids (usually) and terrific service. Very crowded during week - try on Sat or Sun for a nonrushed experience and immediate seating. Can be expensive, but has affordable meals too if you don't go crazy.
I've lived in the City of Angels pert near all of my life and, believe it or not, I've never been to the Pacific Dining Car! While working late one Sunday night I got a call from my girlfriend. She was hungry. I thought about the options available at midnight on a Sunday in Los Angeles and wouldn't you know it, I remembered that the Pacific Dining Car is open 24/7. We had a great meal and then some. She had the prime rib and devoured every bit. Me, being a vegetarian, dined on the creamed spinach and potatos of the O'Brien variety. The Cesar salad was near perfection as was the pre-dinner bread. It was pricey, but I say well worth it! I can't wait to try the breakfast. I'm going to get a big egg platter with a Bloody Mary then go to work. Sounds good, doesn't it?
I dined at Pacific Dining Car for the first time last week. It is extremely expensive ($42 for a steak) and not worth the price. I ordered my steak cooked medium and it arrived burned on the outside and bright red on the inside. My boyfriends steak (supposedly medium-well) was burned all the way through. We would have complained, but the waiter did not come back to the table for our entire meal! Also, I ordered mushrooms and had specifically asked if they would be sauteed and the waiter said yes. When I got my steak, they definitely were not sauteed as he had promised.
There are several steak houses with much better steaks in the area that cost a lot less. Go someplace else!
this place is historic and been around for ages!! theres a good reason... the food and service is incredible.
breakfast is a must.. take a friend... or father and son its place.. and the STEAKS!!!! the best!! just go!! enjoy!!!
This used to be my favorite steak place. Have been going since the late 80's. About five years ago it began having issues: the service was lacking, the cuts of meat were fatty, etc. Last time I went was in 2007. Had a special guest from Dallas and it was embarassing. Tried to talk to a manager - total lack of understanding. Will never go back.
Tried it twice ... I'm one to always give a second chance ... terrible both times. I am not cheap, but for the $$$$, the portions were tiny, the filet was a below average cut, the service was horrible and you pay for valet parking in a lot that is empty 98% of the time and there is no need for valet in the first place. Trust me, go to Morton's where the service is 1st class, the food is orgasmic and the valet parking (true valet parking) is free. I think your total bill may even be less ... go figure :)
I've been going to Pacific Dining Car in Midtown Los Angeles for years w/ my family. It is a throwback to old school elegance with staff who are cordially formal w/ no air of stodginess. The food is delicious with an array of wonderful side dishes. The quiet ambience is housed in a decor of careful propriety and attention to detail. Recommend.
As a downtowner the Dining Car is one of my favorite places to go to reward myself for a life well lived. Not by any stretch of the imagination is this to be considered anything less than a no holds bared experience, although I have had several friends rave about their before theater or symphony specials, I have never tried them. Trust your server to tell you what is really good that evening and enjoy. Use the menu for a general idea but trust your server. Plan and make sure that you tell your server that you are in no rush. You want to enjoy the wine the courses of the meal in a leisurely pace. You will not be disappointed. I usually plan with cocktails, two bottles of wine and desert about $400.00 and worth every dime. But then I eat out more than most.
