  • Our BEST Birthday dinner ever!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/26/2014
    We went for my husbands 50th and have been coming here for over 25 years. Always try new places for every birthday, but decided to go back to his favorite. It was the BEST dinner celebration we ever had! Great food, great service, and great wine! Our children (21, 19 and 17yrs.) agreed the same. Even though it is a large restaurant, we were very cozy in our large booth and talked all night! Everyone had the Lawry's cut with mashed potatoes or spinach. I always get a lobster side even though it is small (4 oz) just as a treat. Something about the place just breathes a specialness to the evening. We decided that this will be our "regular" place to go every year for his birthday that is on/around Thanksgiving! We ate a little later (8:30pm) the night before Thanksgiving this year and it was not overcrowded! What a surprise! Great to have this dinner BEFORE Thanksgiving so we could fully appreciate the great food!!!

    Everyone needs to experience this restaurant once in there life. I won't go back because the food is medicore for me. I felt like I was feed boxed mashed potatoes. The prime rib was okay for me. The desserts were good but the coffee was instant for sure. I am a coffee drinker and I know my coffee. There are hidden fees that they include later like when They are passing out your order they will ask you, if you want corn or spinach which should be included but later they charge you additional side on the bill. Anyway I won't go back I didn't like the food. But I like the ambiance you feel like your im another country.

    We are very lucky that Ms. Lauren served our table. It was my daughter's 10th birthday. She greeted my daughter immediately we were seated, and brought an elegant and special atmosphere. I cannot thank her enough. I will definitely request her for our table when we come back there. Thank you Ms. Lauren.

    I have been going to Lawry's for decades. It's a classic and one of my favorites. I love the bread, the salad, the prime rib, the vegetables, the mashed potatoes, the Yorkshire pudding, and the desserts. I love the spinning salad bowl and that the meat is carved table side. I even think it is reasonably priced. My only gripe is the time it takes for the car to be brought up from valet...it can take a LONG time.

    My wife and I and another couple went to Lawry's the other night and it's easy to see why the restaurant has been around for 75 years. The restaurant decor is beautiful, the service is great and the food is as always excellent. Perfect prime rib and all the fixings and we also had a petite lobster tail which was very good. This is a wonderful place to go for a special dinner.

    I keep coming back to Lawry's every time I get the chance to, since I was 14 and came with my parents. Now I'm 72 and I bring my daughters and their families and the place is better than ever. Not only the best prime rib and the best ambiance and attention, but also the best memories. Thank you for so much of Lawry's is in mu life and history.

    CommanderCool
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    Everything was great except for the fact that they do not offer rare prime rib. Rare doesn't mean raw, but my husband and I like a really pink prime rib. When asked for rare, the cuts that we got were closer to medium rare to medium. They had a lot of flavor though, and were still good, but you would expect to get the cut you want at such an expensive steakhouse. However, that's our only complaint. The complimentary meatballs and homemade potato chips they offer in the lounge/waiting area are delicious. (Try not to get full off of that). The spinning salad, mashed potatoes, yorkshire pudding, peas, trifle and hot fudge sundae are wonderful. Of the two desserts, go for the trifle. The customer service was exceptional. I would've rated it 5 out of 5 if it weren't for the fact that we didn't get our preferred cut.

    Greeter who took us to our table never smiled and when we said we did not like to sit by kitchen, she seemed annoyed. She simply said to come back with her and did not say anything. We then had to wait without any explanation for 10 mins to get an another table. The place was half full and it was at 5:30, I did not think this was way to get us a new table. Also, the prime rib was luke warm and the lobster was chewy and salty. Not a good experience.

    Lawry's has always been known for their prime rib, and they certainly didn't disappoint. The prime rib is cut right in front of you - and you get a slice from a rib that is done the way you like it, whether it's well, medium, or rare. So tender, so tasty. And don't forget Lawry's signature salad, tossed in a bowl spinning on ice. The English trifle is a great dessert - not too heavy, just the right finish to a perfect meal. And the service is impeccable - from the waiters who are friendly and cordial, to the bussers who magically appear when you need more water or when your plate needs clearing. We heard many "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Anniversary" songs being sung by the staff. But Lawry's is not just a place to go for special occasions (although it's probably a bit too expensive to have every week). If you want to eat amazing prime rib in a beautiful, old dining room with great service - go to Lawry's! P.S. while you're waiting for your table, they have free potato chips and meatballs in the lobby. They should package and sell the chips - they're amazing!

    Lawry's is the perfect place for a true old school carnivore. This is a meat and potatoes kind of place. Everything from the wait staff introducing themselves using Mr. or Ms. and their sir name, to the uniforms from a different era. The salad is prepared with flair table side and a carver in a tall chef hat slices your prime rib to order right from a cart in front of you. Everything comes with salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, and Yorkshire pudding. Also from the carving cart you can get creamed spinach, creamed corn or peas. Very few people leave without a Togo bag. It is a true experience and in my opinion a great value.

    RubyJackson
    Dined on 11/13/2014
    The food here was delicious, with the exception of the Yorshire pudding. A bit dry. The beef was excellent and the salad is one of a kind. The cut of prime rib was a bit on the thin side, and I actually sent mine back and asked for another slice, as my slice started out about 1/2 inch thick and tapered off to paper thin. A very uneven cut. My friend's slice was on the thin side, too, but at least it was even thickness. Our waitress was great, great attitude, however with the abundance of Travelzoo customers (on a Thursday night!) there for the special, I think she got a bit overwhelmed and we didn't see her for a while near the end of our meal. Dessert was good but the coffee was lukewarm. My biggest complaint is the lack of dress code. I thought this was supposed to be a classy place, I wore a cute dress, but the man sitting next to me was in shorts and a tee shirt that had an advertisement on it. Tacky.

    Simple and limited menu, but why would you come here for anything other than prime rib? Great service, amazing cocktails (try the Moscow Mule) and simple ingredient dishes that are done the way they were meant to be. You wind find Madagascar vanilla crusted Ahi here, just Lawry's seasoned prime rib, lumpy mashed potatoes (like LEGIT MASHED POTATOES!) and simple yet delicious side dishes (creamed corn is super good). We had the English trifle for desert and it was amazing, fresh not overly sweet berries, and a clotted cream that was just a hint sweet..very well done!! We will definitely be back here!

    My family has been coming to Lawry's for special occasions for decades (!), even back to the days when it was across the street. It has the old world elegance in the bar area and there are ample appetizers. We never have to wait more than a few minutes after our arrival and the service is just the same as always. My grandchildren have been coming to Lawry;s since they were toddlers and my oldest son remembers coming there as a small boy. The prime rib is always excellent, along with my favorite creamed spinach but the creamed corn is also a great addition. Is this a place for "foodies"? I don't think so. It is not gourmet cuisine and the atmosphere in the dining room is crowded. I remember when we dressed up to go to lawry;s. Now anything goes but that is the way of the world. We recently celebrated my granddaughter's 21st birthday with a big family group and we had a great meal and a memorable evening.

    We had a party of 5 to celebrate my son's birthday. The ambiance of the place was very interesting. Our waitress was very nice, very knowledgable, and told us a lot about the history and how meals were served back then and now. The food was good, the experience was fun. It was quite expensive, however. For that reason, I would only go back there on very special occasions. It was also a little annoying that the check printed out a couple of "suggested gratuity" values that started at 18% and went up, trying to intimidate you into digging even deeper into your pocket.

    The staff is incredibly attentive and informative. The prime rib is tender, juicy and flavorful. The sides (mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, creamed corn) pair perfectly with anything you get. No matter how full you are I recommend getting a dessert. Ladies, use caution if you wear high heels. The floors are heavily waxed to allow booth tables to slide out for seating.

    My wife and I made a reservation at Lawry's for our anniversary. Neither of us had previously dined there however the reviews we read were very positive. Lawry's is an iconic Prime Rib server since 1938. Apparently Lawry's originated the stainless steel serving ovens on wheels in 1938 and are still using them today. Our server and her assistants were excellent. We both really enjoyed the Prime Rib. The meal comes with a choice of two sides unlike other restaurants where everything is ala cart.

    Being a native of California, I grew up with Lawry's. To this day I enjoy Lawry's just as much if not more than when I was a child. The Lawry's standard has not missed a beat in all of the years that I have been coming here (I am 67 years old.) The other night we just felt like a great piece of prime rib and we know that we can always count on Lawry's for consistency. Our salad was fresh and crisp, our prime rib was cooked perfectl and we had creamed corn and asparagus. The cream corn is the best and the asparagus were perfectly cooked. Our food was wonderful as was the service. We will definitely return soon.
