Steakhouse
The Derby is more than a restaurant. Established in 1922, it has been family owned and operated since 1951. It is a grand museum showcasing some of horse racing’s greatest moments. Diners are invited to take a break from the rush of modern life and travel back to the time of George Woolf, Seabiscuit, and relive the excitement of “The Race of the Century”. We excel in offering the best meat and fresh seafood hand selected by our longtime executive chef that would delight even the most discriminating of taste. Some of the menu highlights include the Bacon Wrapped Filet, Delmonico New York, Prime Rib and Shrimp Scampi. We offer a wide selection of wines by the bottle and by the glass. Relax and enjoy a delicious meal in one of our iconic red leather booths, take in a beautiful evening on our terrace, or watch a sporting event in our bar and lounge. Dining at The Derby can only be compared to the feeling of holding the winning ticket when you smile and know that you made the right choice!

    We started with the French Onion soup. It was delicious. I had the bacon wrapped filet mignon. It was very tender and flavorful. My husband had the prime rib. He said that it was very good. The service was excellent. The servers were very attentive. We will definitely be back.

    I think we contributed to the noise level - we had a boisterous party. Our server was great, but I forgot his name, he is the tallest server you have - he really is tall! The food was perfection as well as ambiance. We will definitely return and hopefully get your tallest server!

    We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the Derby and that was an excellent decision! We were greeted with anniversary wishes by the host and our servers then we enjoyed cocktails before ordering Chateaubriand for two. It was served tableside, flaming, and was delicious! The meat was incredibly tender and flavorful. The sides were also delicious and generous portions. After an excellent dinner we were treated to baked Alaska, again flaming at our table. It was quite a treat. Thank you to The Derby for making our anniversary so special.

    Felt like the waitress was a little rude, couldn’t hear anything we said and we had to repeat things several times like what we were saying wasn’t English and not understandable and made us feel inferior. Didn’t really deserve the $40 tip, we sheiks have tibien $5 based in how she treated us. Maybe she thought we wouldn’t tip her appropriately. She seemed to be more attentive to other tables. When we asked for drinks outside of the menu she acted like it was a ridiculous question with her facial expression. She was elderly so maybe everyone accepts her behavior. It was a subtle behavior and maybe unintentional , but we noticed based on how she treated the rest of the tables around us that we were not seen as equal. I would never return to this location and we should have gone to Del Rea or Ruth Chris to celebrate our anniversary instead, but decided to give this location a try. When dessert was brought she made an Indian sound over her mouth like signing - I don’t know what that was, a little offensive. Maybe a different server would have provided a more pleasurable experience, but not really sure. The host staff was not very welcoming either, which is their only job. We felt more like we were invading a space where we were not welcome.

    Went here for my husband's birthday. They put us at the "birthday" table, in front of a fireplace. We ordered cocktails (barrel-aged old fashioned was one of the best I've ever had) and wine. The date appetizer and complimentary garlic bread were delicious. We came here for the Chateaubriand which is flamed at the table. It melted in my mouth! Birthday Dessert was Baked Alaska; not the best I've ever had, but still very good. I can't say enough good things about the service. Everyone was friendly and on top of it. Highly recommend.

    Prices were way up! Think salad should be included or choice of 2 sides❤️. You get voice of 1 side w/their veg choice. Maybe 2 side choices for price, suggestion. Staff was excellent accommodating us since we requested patio but was too hot for a member of our party so they moved us inside where AC was on - very nice & accommodating!!!

    The DerbyResponded on July 19, 2022Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and we were able to accommodate your request to be seated indoors. We are currently avoiding raising our prices even though the cost of all of our raw materials has increased exponentially. We will continue to absorb our increasing costs as much as possible to avoid raising prices for our guests. Thank you, Tyler Z. General Manager 626-447-2430

    The food was fantastic. I had the prime rib and backed potato and French onion soup, was soooo good!!! My friend had the filet wrapped in bacon and he was very happy with it as well. We sat out on the patio with the misters which was quite nice. Also my friend had a Margarita and said it was one of the best he’d ever had. Dessert was great too, cheesecake was nice and solid not mushy and the bread pudding was the best.

    The Derby always use to be a favorite for special occasions, but the food this last time was not as good as it use to be. We probably will not be going back as there are other steak houses that are better. The service was excellent, and their bread is always a favorite as well.
