A word from Lawry's The Prime Rib - Beverly Hills
You'll know the moment you arrive that Lawry's The Prime Rib is an extraordinary restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef are aged 21 days, rock salt-roasted to perfection then carved to order tableside from shining silver carts. The famous Spinning Bowl Salad, whipped cream horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and warm hospitality complete the experience that has landed Lawry's on countless "10 Best" lists and made it a dining legend since 1938.

  • Too Much Bad
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    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.

    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.

    I highly recommend Lawry's for a great dinner. My husband and I went for the August Special, 2 prime rib dinners including a bottle of the house wine or 2 well drinks, salad, 3 sides, 8 oz of prime rib, and dessert. The service was great. This place is just what you want if you're looking for a classic prime rib dinner.

    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.

    It's been years since I stepped foot into Lawry's on La Cienega. It is as though I stepped into a time capsule. A wonderful time in space. Elegant, proper, staff in uniform that I haven't seen in many years, the famous rolling carts of Prime Rib and goodies! All as I remember, thank you for not changing! Excellent PRib, the Spinning Salad, and the creamed corn or the spinach fluff, my, my! And dessert, apple pie! This was fitting celebration of my 62 birthday! Thank you to the staff and the chefs at Lawry's Prime Rib!

    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!

    I was disappointed during my recent visit to Lawry's. I've been to Lawry's 5 or 6 times in the past, but this was the first visit in about 5 years. We were led to a dining room (not one of the main dining rooms) that was jammed with tables. I'd never seen this room before, and I wonder if it previously had another use. The dining room was so crowded that the spinning salad card couldn't get close to our table; nor could the carving cart--which are both great to watch. The waiter didn't approach our table for 10-15 minutes. And the only time we saw the charming aproned waitress which Lawry's is know for, was to spin the salad, and clear the salad plates. The waiter was average, nothing special. The prime rib had gristle.

    We had not been to Lawry's for 6-8 months, but enjoy it and the other restaurants connected in the group. The service is always exceptional and the food cannot be surpassed. It is indeed a value, and a bargain when they have their specials, such as they had this month of August.

    Very very rude Carver he bumped his cart into our table and multiple glasses of water spilled all over my lap. He didn't even apologize no comment he only told the ancillary help to clean it up. After bringing multiple cloth napkins to soak up the water the ancillary didn't even bother to change the tablecloth. Soaked and wet he just pushed the table right back to out waist level....Manager appeared inexperienced in handling situations such as this.... Very disappointing for such a high-end restaurant

    Our family has gone to Lawry's for years, celebrating birthdays anniversary's and just to eat prime rib. This time, might have been our last time. We were so disappointed. Everything changed The spinach wasn't creamy like it used to be, and the meat was definitely not mouthwatering as in the past, and dry. The prime rib was not only tough, it was missing that lawrys flavor. So disappointed our family of 8 celebrating my Dad's 85th birthday was not what we had expected.

    We always enjoy our visit here and this was no different. Everything about this place is POSITIVE! The only NEGATIVE about the night was the noise level in the back room where we dined. There were two large Asian groups, Korean and Chinese. They talked so loud that it was difficult to hear our own conversation. I am wondering what the European family thought? I can say this about the Asian groups because my family is Asian and we sometimes talk loud when there is a large group dining at an AYCE place. next time I will request to dine in the main dining room. As for the selection of food, it was nice. For a non meat eater, they do have a salmon dinner plate that is very good.

    Elegance, a la old school dining. Where else are you served incredibly delicious beef from shiny rolling carts, tableside? Could I eat like this everyday? Maybe if I hit the lottery first. But as an unbelievably indulgent evening of glamorously decadent classic prime rib.....wake me when my food coma is over. There is a certain elegance to the place. parquet wood floors, brass, chandeliers, tapestry-covered walls, dark portraits here and there. And then there is the staff, in suits, in starched white collars and standup caps that are probably the same as the day the place opened. Yes, this is the real deal, and worth every penny.
