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.Continued

  • "Consistently good and the only place for Prime Rib."

  • "Best Dining Experience....EVER ! The food and overall ambiance could not have been any better."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "This place is known for the prime rib but I find that the prime rib was just so so and did not have the flavor that a good prime rib should have."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Lawry's is never a gamble. On every trip there I know I will have an outstanding meal and excellent service. It's my family's favorite."

  • "If you lived in Southern California for quite some time, it is a must that you check out Lawry. You have to experience the nostalgia and great food the place has to offer. After trying the meal, we have a new metric in "steak" dining. This one will be hard to beat."

  • "Our dinner was great!! We took 2 newbies for their first visit...overwhelmed them with the Beef Bowl and 24oz Ribeye...they absolutely thought it outstanding and stated they didn't need knives as they could cut through the meat with their forks. Shrimp cocktails and lobster tails were excellent and was the service was as always."

  • "This restaurant is consistently good. It's prime rib is to die for. Their sides like creamed spinach and corn are wonderful. We keep going there seversl times a year."

  • "I have been enjoying Lawry's since the 1970s when I lived in Chicago. Whenever a special occasion arises, Lawry's in Beverly Hills is my first choice. Looking forward to dining at Lawry's in Chicago when we return there next month."

  • "Everything about this experience was so special. The food and the service are exceptional. I can not say enough good things about all of it."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Food was very good. I ordered the Lawry's Cut which was pretty thick. The chef was more than willing to cut it in half for me. Yorkshire pudding was EXCEPTIONAL. The only negative was that there was a 25-30 minute wait for the valet to get the car when we were done. There was a line of folks waiting to leave and it was a bit cold standing out there at night (no heaters)."

  • "Since I had dinner there last ( about 6 mos ago) they have added spinach to their salad which was very good! The prime rib was especially good, and the creamed corn, my favorite was delicious. Hope to return soon."

  • "Inside of a restaurant is sooo luxury, and the steak is sooo big and delicious! But many Japanese women might think it's too big to eat all, so I recomend you should go when you're very very hungry!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This is the only place where we order prime rib. Our 8 oz. cuts were at least 10 oz! Service was excellent. Our waiter went above and beyond the call of duty. Don't forget to try the house-made potato chips in the bar. Yummy!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was perfect service outstanding the April special amazing. First time our 26 yr old son had been here and he loved the food"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This restaurant serves mostly prime rib. It is cut at the table from special carving carts. The bread is also excellent as is the salad. A little pricey, but well worth it. Many families go for holidays and special occasions. The restaurant's staff is great with kids. Our one year old grand-daughter was the "hit" of the evening. This is my wife's favorite restaurant in Los Angeles."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Ihave been going to L,s since the 50's...but it isn,t a place to dine anymore. It has become a tourist attraction where large groupa are ahuttled in, served quickly,and shuttled out. This was, however, the first time the food reflected the hurry attitude, Yorkshire pudding burnt! salad old! meat average. Sorry to see this happen."

  • "Truly one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. If you want THE prime rib.......you have to come here..."

  • "This restaurant was recommended by someone my girlfriend and I just met. First things first, after so many experiences of bad customer service this restaurant had the best. Every one that waited on us was excellent, our waiter was too (can't remember her name but she was a young Asian girl). Honestly, the atmosphere gave me plantation, from the paintings to the gear the waiters wear. The scalloped potatoes were amazing! The prime rib is good but they don't season it much because they want you to use the Lawrys seasoning at the table. After you put the season on there it's good. The cream spinach is tasty too! I recommend this place to anyone good food and great customer service!"

  • "I love the warm and inviting feel of Lawry's, I meet friends there for dinner every three months , its always such a enjoyable time. They have an extensive wine list so we ordered a bottle of White Zinfandel for the table, we took advantage of the April specials, as always the food was excellent for each of us, every aspect of the service provided by staff was exceptional. Looking forward to the next gathering."

  • "Lawry's is our family go to spot for special occasion dining. Due to distance we don't come as often as we would like. Food is always delicious, properly prepared, and well presented. Wait staff and table service is courteous and attentive. We dined on Prime Rib and it was perfect. I would come for just the salad and bread. Tried scalloped potatoes and bernaise sauce as a compliment. Both were delicious."

  • "My uncle is almost 95 and has been coming to your restaurant for years. He used to bring his management from Honda international. I started to take him to dinner there after we get his taxes done. You should have a finished your taxes special. I Enjoyed being able to try a flight of wines with dinner. I would like option of steamed vegetables. The food is very rich."

  • "This was a great place and everything was perfect. From the service to the food. I would definitely go again and recommend it to anyone who looks for something more than a meal. The staff is great and welcoming the food is some of the best in LA."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I have dined here for years. On April 3rd, 2014, in addition to the food being perfect, the attention of our waiter went beyond the high standard we were expecting. I asked for blue cheese olives in my martini, and although I knew that was not a staple from the bar, I got blue cheese olives in my martini. The services was timely without being rushed. Our waiter was attentive without being disruptive. The bread was hot, the salad cold and crisp and the prime rib perfectly prepared and served with excellent side dishes (creamed spinach and creamed corn). Dessert (trifle) was very good and neatly served for once. We'll be back soon."

  • "My family and I always look forward to dine at Larwys. The ambiance is like no other. The steaks are second to none. Service is tops."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "But for the price, I'd probably go elsewhere. The steaks were just ok to me although everything else was amazingly delicious. I was only disappointed that the steaks weren't as great as I'd been told. The service was exceptional. The ambience was nice but not our style."

  • "I took my girlfriend here on her birthday recently. We were blown away right from when we arrived at the restaurant -- there is a classy, hotel-like vibe to the entraceway and we knew we were in for a night full of pampering (a good thing once in a while). Our reservation saved us some time in the waiting area (which had delicious peanut-oil chips) and we were quickly and ceremoniously escorted to our table like royalty. Our waitress was fantastic and the restaurant greeted us upon hearing that it was our first time visiting the restaurant. Most importantly, the food was delicious (we both got the Lawry's Cut) and to top it off, a birthday cake slice for the birthday girl on the house. Thanks for a great time and a solid night, Lawry's."

  • "Excellent dining restaurant. Meets all the requirements, bar, ambiance, service and especially the food. There were 7 of us celebrating my son's 52nd Birthday. We all ordered the Lawry Prime Rib Cut with mashed potatoes and gravy and we each had different vegetables, and, it even came with a salad. The service was as outstanding as the meal itself. Our waitress has worked there for some +25 years and she impressed us with not only her personality but her serving skills. She can pour a glass of wine from 3 feet straight up and not leave a drop outside of the glass!!!! This is one of our favorite restaurants and we will continue to go there for as long as the Restaurant is there which we hope is a long, long, time!"

  • "Carver's cart was dirty, large pieces of food crumbs, gravy dried and messy on the cart.. Was not a pleasant sight considering the beautiful environment. Food maintains consistency! Our Miss was tired, gave an impression that another table being sat in her area will be a drag and a long night..unfortunately."

  • "We came here for DineLA. Great value, EXCELLENT service. i wish this place was easier to get to. It is difficult to time traffic for you reservation. we almost missed our reservation because of the extra traffic that day (and they don't hold more than 15min)."

  • "My prime rib was very fatty (big fat area inside and not a lot of meat because of it) and a bit tough. The flavor was great. Others in the party, with a different doneness had a better cut. The yorkshire pudding was burnt in one pan, while the other pan was great."

  • "If you're a prime rib lover... And if you can take down huge cuts of beef, then get down to Lawry's like now!!!!"

  • "1. Car valets, door man were disheveled...this was 7:30 on a Sunday. Did everyone take a nap in their clothes, or did they swap jackets and pants. No one looked sharp. 3. No one smiled. Not the valet who took our car, the valet behind the podium, the doorman, the hostess, the bartender, the woman who seated us. They all looked very irritated. If I am paying $6 for a Heineken as part of a $70 order, you think I could get my drinks with a smile. 4. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, as were all others who came to our booth. 5. Don't remember the booth's being so tight...and we are a skinny group of people. 6. Prime rib was marginal. I have had better. 7. Last time I was here was 10 years ago, didn't have one complaint."

  • "This was our first time here, went for a birthday dinner. From the minute you walk in you are treated well. There was a small wait even with our reservation, but they had an area with a few snacks set out...tried a meatball that was amazing. The wait staff was attentive and friendly the entire time, the food was amazing...portions well priced."

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience at Lawry's!! We were there celebrating my father-in-law's 100th birthday. The food was divine, all but one had prime rib (mostly Lawry's cut but teenage son beef bowl cut which delighted him), one ordered the vegetarian ravioli which was also delicious! Finished off with dessert which almost rivaled the prime rib experience. Service was also amazing. With a 100 year old we don't always move as quickly as others and they were so gracious - from valet to hostesses/staff and then our waiter... Everyone was so kind. It was an absolutely and completely lovely experience. I recommend Lawry's wholeheartedly, especially for a special occasion because it is an experience you will always remember..."
