Open 24 hours 7 days a week, Wine Spectator Magazine named Pacific Dining Car the #1 steakhouse on the west coast. The Downtown News rated Pacific Dining Car "Best Power Breakfast" in Los Angeles. Open since 1921, Pacific Dining Car was also awarded the "Treasure of Los Angeles" by the Central City Association of Los Angeles and Mayor James Hahn. Between our award wining Breakfast, wine list, corn ed, dry aged USDA Prime beef, and fresh seafood, the Pacific Dining Car is considered one of.. the finest dining experiences in Los Angeles. Our seafood and beef is all cooked over Mesquite coals, not gas. We also offer a free private shuttle to Staples Center, Music Center and Disney Concert Hall.

    Simply the best

    The Pacific Dining Car has been a favorite of mine since I began working in Los Angeles in the early 1980's. All I can say is that it's simply the best.

    Gourmet 24 Hour Spot
    travelnotary (10 reviews)

    This is a great 24 hour spot. When you're looking for something gourmet after partying in downtown LA this place is worth checking out. The lobster and steaks here are tasty. You can even order a nice bottle of wine to go with your meal as long as you finish drinking it before 2am. Everything is a little on the pricey side but the always outstanding service makes it all worth it.

    best steaks in town
    AskOksana (15 reviews)

    The Pacific Dining Car restaurant in downtown L.A. is in a REAL Pacific Rail Road dining car, so it has the atmosphere of dining at the turn of the last century. Breakfast, lunch & tea, plus dinner 24 hours a day. If you want a steak at 3 AM, this is the place to go. This is simply the best place to eat a steak in Los Angeles they're cooked to perfection. The waiters are professionals, menus are on a slate that is brought to your table, booths are leather. Lunch is when the CEOs of the downtown corporations wine & dine their clients. My favorite steak is the Delmonico which is a grilled prime rib. It's huge. Menu is a la carte. Order a side of onion rings (it will feed 4) which are so incredible you will think you've died & gone to heaven. The onion is sliced, lightly batter & quickly deep fried in oil, so they are NOT greasy nor heavy, just sweet & delicious. Fantastic. Your steak will come with a potato (they do serve chicken, but why bother? this is the place for beef). Order the baked potato & a waiter will bring a tray with freshly chopped chives & fresh REAL sour cream, which they will ladle onto your potato until you say "stop". They serve fish too, but I've never bothered, as the mid-western, corn-fed, aged Angus beef is why you eat here. This is a wonderful restaurant... expensive & worth, business casual attire.
