    Was great we went for our 31st Anniversary and the service was outstanding they brought cake(little) for each of us and flutes of champagne. This was after a great dinner. The food was excellent. Had prime rib both of us and we took home left overs. We have been to Lawry's many times and each time the prime rib is excellent.

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Lawry's in Beverly Hills. This was our 4th wedding anniversary. ..and the first time we were able to have a nice dinner without our kids present. It was an extremely pleasant - grown up experience accompanied by great food and drink! The staff was so polite and helpful. .not an ounce of condescending attitude to be found (which I have to say was rather refreshing ). We are already making plans to return to the restaurant for future celebrations.

    The food here was great!!! The prime rib was so tender and the mashed potatoes and salad tasted great. The service was great with our waitress being exceptionally nice and helpful with everything from water and bread refills to chilled forks for our salad and we even received dessert for our anniversary. The setting of the restaurant was great too. Setting was great too not noisy and easy to have a conversation. Overall I would love to eat here again.

    The food isn't good at all. We ordered 4 lobster tails, 3 prime ribs, 1 ribeyes, 2 side orders and 1 desert. The prime ribs was okay but lobster tails doesn't tasted fresh; it's very dry and fishy. My ribeyes is the worst I ever had in my life. Side orders & desert isn't impressive either. The biggest disappointment is after all these foods we ordered and they charged us $15 extra when we asked for a plate!!! We spent almost $400 for 4 girls with not so impressive dishes and horrible service; we should have gone to Maestro instead. Don't ever take your date there, you'll be embarrassed & wasted your money!!!

  • No So Happy Anniversary Dinner
    Mojack75
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    As always, the food was great; but unfortunately, the service from their waitress Ms. Verona J. was poor. According to my parents, upon introducing herself as their waitress for the evening, Ms. Verona asked if they were celebrating a special occasion. My parents alerted her that it was their anniversary and expected the customary trifle and song from the wait staff. Dinner was served and their table was cleared, Ms. Verona came to the table asking if their was anything else that my parents would like. Assuming that they would be greeted by the staff for their special day, my parents were presented with the check without any acknowledgment of their anniversary. Ms. Verona needs more training to meet the standards that Lawry's is known for.

    I have been here twice for my wedding anniversary and i love pretty much everything about the prime rib. The sourdough bread is fantastic as well. The sweet corn dish is FANTASTIC. Love it. The only two things i have not liked are the plain insipid asparagus and the included sauce. Worse, the salad that is provided with the dish tastes pretty bad. That salad tastes like something you went to pick up at your local Sizzlers restaurant. The dressing is not very good either.

    The occasion was our 40th wedding anniversary. Our family was a party of 8. We were seated in an area offset from the main room that added a bit of privacy for us which we really appreciated. Everything from start to finish was just as we expected from Lawry's. it was outstanding. The service, food and ambiance. We hadn't been to Lawry's for some time and they did not disappoint. Our server was just a doll and made sure she fulfilled our every need. She never rushed us but was always there whenever we needed her. I'm sorry I don't remember her name.

  • Poor service & semi-raw Prime Rib
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    My wife, I and some guests went to this restaurant with high hopes and expectations because we have been here many time before around 8:30pm. But our server never brought the requested cutlery, the cuts of prime rib we received were raw in the center, and 4 slabs of meat were all being held in one serving cart which was not even warming the meats as it typically does. The food due to being uncooked was only half eaten, and because our server couldn't bring us refills or proper cutlery upon request we didn't bother her with requesting a different cut, likely from the same cart anyway. This visit was very poor and I will discourage friends from going to this location. My wife, I, and our guests have had stomach pains since last night.

    A splendid experience and the August special was even better! Smooth from start to finish except for a slight glitch when it took a long time to place our drink orders. However, I think they were short staffed and our waitress was trying valiantly to keep up. She went the extra mile to make sure everyone was accomodated, including a few hungry, cranky children, which we appreciated. We'll be back often!

    We celebrated our 35th anniversary at Lawry's. We had a wonderful time. Everything was great. The prime rib was delicious. The creamed spinach is one of our favorites. Since we had a reservation, the wait was short. Lawry's was very nice to surprise us with cake and champagne. We would go there again.

    We could have gotten a better meal at Black Angus or Outback Steakhouse. Meat was fair, Prices were poor, side dishes were average. Lack of flavoring abounded in all dishes. Service was lovely. I took my wife and her friends to Lawry's to celebrate her birthday. The bill came to 271.00 for four people! We didn't finish eating our dinners, as it was tasteless. One last note, no need to adhere to a dress code as they say on their website. We were of the few who dressed "business casual" as recommended. Most other patrons were in shorts and flip flops.

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    For the first time in 35 years of coming here for special occasions, we were disappointed. The cuts of meat were strangely dissimilar to each other, even though the orders were identical, they were unusually fatty among other things, and I was surprised at how unaccommodating they were to various things (i.e. use of expired vouchers and other little things). The whole experience was just off on a number of matters, which was a problem considering we were celebrating our 34th anniversary and the engagement of our son. Considering we now live far away, it was not worth the effort, or expense, to come or attempt to repeat.

    Went to Lawry's for our wedding anniversary. Our waitress, I think it was Ms Dwyer, actually remembered us from like 2 years ago. Amazing! The food and the service were exemplary. I highly recommend coming here. Since we ordered the August special, a bottle of wine, 2 8-oz prime rib dinners, petite dessert and coffee. That was a deal! We actually got an extra dessert since it was our anniversary. They come over and sing and light a candle for you!

    Lawryʻs the Prime Rib in Beverly Hills is the premier restaurant for any prime rib foodie. Itʻs the best, with a history as fantastic as the food is delicious. The service is wonderful. Although traditional in ambience, the servers and personal waiter/waitress make you feel home, in a very rich one! Elegance, fine dining at its best, kind and thoughtful servers (all long-term and loyal employees) who appreciate the diner and make every moment perfect. Iʻve been coming to Lawryʻs for over 40 years, and always there is a consistency of quality food and excellent service. I love showing the place to LA newcomers and visitors alike. Thank you for being a wonderful family business with many firsts for both industry and American history.

    My wife and I have been coming here for about 15 years or more. Always excellent service. The food is exquisitely good. Valet parking is very effecient. Soon as you pull into their driverway a valet attendant comes immediately to assist you. Never a wait over a minute because they have several attendants. Inside is very pleasant and the restrooms are very clean. Its like being in a 5 star hotel. There's a bar you can wait in or another room that has free hot appetizers before your table is ready. I suggest you make reservations in advance because they are always busy 7 days aweek otherwise, you could be waiting for a table for a while. Everyone that works there is attentive. Price for two is about $150 if no alcohol on the average.

    I always enjoy the "frozen in time" vibe at Lawrey's. I have to admit that I was a bit surprised at the poor state of the bar. They would do themselves a solid if they had a mixologist behind it instead of someone who barely knows how to pour a glass of wine. They need to bring the lights down a bit, too. Getting a bit bright in there.

    A friend recommended Lawry's to us and so we decided to try it out while we were visiting LA (we're all from Australia). I can't remember the name of our waiter (I think it was Mike or Mark) but he was very attentive, friendly, and had impeccable customer service. Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone - the steak we had was the best we've ever eaten anywhere in the world!
