    The only steakhouse that I know of that has Steak Diane is Dal Rae in Pico Rivera. I'm not sure whether that's too much of a drive for you though. It's an awesome restaurant and if you did make the drive, you'd really be glad. You can see pics below:

      The Arches in Newport Beach serves Steak Diane (as well as tableside Caesar salad, cherries jubilee, and bananas Foster). It's a fun place to step back in time and eat.

        If you have never been to The Arches you should give it a try since it will not be there for much longer. We go about once a year and always have a great time, mostly for the old school vibe. It is pretty pricey.

        Riviera Restaurant has Steak Diane. I have not been but some friend of ours go all of the time. It seems pretty old school with tableside service as well.

        Thnk of it as The Arches on a budget.

          I've been here and had the Steak Diane, it was excellent. Prepared and flambeed tableside by 80 year old waiters in tuxedoes. Very old school, dark, comfy restaurant. I'm only 33 years old but appreciate the service and attention to detail at the Riviera by the Fireside restaurant.

          I also enjoy the Caesar salad prepared tableside, as well as the cherries jubilee for dessert.

          I believe the Wild Rabbit in Costa Mesa has Steak Diane on their menu. I haven't ordered it yet myself, so I can't give an opinion on it, but I've enjoyed everything I've had there so far.

            How about RIVIERA AT FIRESIDE?

              Riviera at Fireside has old world tableside service. Last time at Arches, they had discontinued tableside service associated with fire due to some hazards. Of course, that could have been an excuse for the evening. Ended up eating some massive Lobster, which was good, but haven't been back. Overpriced and kind of stinky carpet atmosphere. It is what it is. Try the Riviera.
