“Beyond our dreams!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We had a party of 13 with a reservation after the Breeders Cup. We only had to wait 20 min during which time they treated us with live music and yummy treats. But the best was yet to come, Tim provided us with beyond outstanding service along with interesting facts regarding the Derby. Many cudos to Tim :). Which leaves only comment on our dinner...with 13 of us in the party, there are few places we haven't visited. The Derby is our unequivocal winner of the most tasty morsels we've had. From the steak, lobster and lamb to the sea bass and wine pairings, it was all a five star experience. Thank you to the chefs and Tim for a most memorable evening!

I haven't been to the Derby in quite some time but wanted to rate it anyway. The ambiance here reminds me of what Old Hollywood must have been like back in its heyday. The food was very good as well.

“Best Prime Rib!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

If you are a steak lover, this is the place. Derby has been in Arcadia for 90 yrs and the quality and service are always outstanding. Most of the customers seems to be long time customers. Though I am not a frequent customer but the staff there always made me felt that they know me and want to make sure I have a wonderful time. I love the prime rib there though it is only available Thurs to Sun. The seared ahi tuna salad is a great starter. The ahi is sushi grade and the light ginger dressing is a good match. If you are a horse racing fan, check out the racing memorabilia. Dining room is welcoming and cozy and there's live music Fri and Sat night.

“Great food, history, and atmosphere.....”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Visited the Derby with a group of friends. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts were amazing! Waiter was wonderful and extremely attentive. The racing history is great to look at while you eat. The Oysters Rockefella and bone in ribeye are a must!
