For our 4th year in a row, I took my whole family (wife, 4kids, MIL) to the Santa Monica PDC. What a wonderful dinner in a glorious atmosphere. The steaks were delicous as were the sides (my favorite, the Au Gratin potatoes were to die for). Good crowd on hand (it was packed at 7pm). The only downer of course was the bill. $540 for the 7 of us which included some cocktails, sodas and a nice $55 red zinfandel. I know this place gets bashed a lot but felt it desrved a good review for the great time we had.
