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.

When we arrived at the previously reserved hour (exactly) no one was at the reception desk. What greeted us there instead was a half eaten food plate. We stood around with that "lost sheep" look typical of unattended restaurant guests until, finally, one of the...More

I think since Groupon started selling deals, the restaurant shamelessly hiked their prices. We used to stop by after theater for some drinks by the bar and appetizers, but I think we are done at this point. We could have had a three-course meal in...More

Went to Pacific Dinnig Car more than 20 years ago and after all those years nothing did changed(except by the price..). Quality of the attendance is top notch, very quiet yet not snob with very friendly waiter and staff. Started with Crab cakes, gigantic, worth...More
