Pacific Dining Car

The Memorial Coliseum. The Hollywood Bowl. The Ambassador Hotel. The California oil and railway booms of the 1920s brought Los Angeles many of its best-recognized landmarks. It's also what helped Fred and Grace Cook open the Pacific Dining Car, a restaurant built to resemble one of the sumptuous dining cars of the era. Although it never rode the rails, the restaurant still fed the thousands of travelers, from both near and far, that passed through Los Angeles in those days. It was also a hit with the locals, who eagerly awaited the day's thick-cut steaks and lighter-than-air apple pies.

Now in its fourth generation of ownership, the restaurant offers today's guests yesterday's dining experience—namely, a quiet, elegant atmosphere and hearty meals any time of day. Steaks are still especially popular: each is aged on the premises, cut by an on-staff butcher, and grilled under a special flame that enhances the meat's natural juices and flavors. The restaurant also sports a wine list fit for a Golden Age tycoon; clocking in at over 300 bottles, the collection is curated by an in-house sommelier and contributes to the glowing reviews from industry sources including Gourmet, Wine Spectator, and Travel + Leisure.

Although they adhere to tradition, the modern-day PDC also sports its own, more contemporary innovations; unlike most fine restaurants, the dining car remains open 24 hours a day, allowing guests to sit down for a classy meal no matter the hour. In the morning (or at any other time, really) diners can enjoy PDC's signature country breakfast, which chefs build around two eggs, two buttermilk pancakes, and two breakfast meats.

Customer Reviews

The price on the same great food drops substantially after 11:00 P.M. without sacrificing quality, quantity, or impeccable service! Go after 11:00 P.M. and truly get your money's worth!! ($20 baseball steaks!!)

Fantastic food and service A bit pricey, but oh so good

Good old fashioned steak house. When you walk in you feel like you've stepped back in time. Like a scene from madmen, it's the 50s and your in for a treat. The steaks are very good, to the sides are excellent, the service is very good, but the prices are what you'd expect at a fancy steak house, expensive, even with the Groupon. But you get what you pay for.
