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.

    Ms. Sargent is my favorite waitress there. She's being honored today for 25 years of service at Lawry's, and she deserves every bit of commendation they can offer. Here's hoping she'll be there for another 25! I'm a Lawry's Prime member, and always try to make her a part of my Open Table reservation preferences when I'm going to Lawry's.

    Was looking forward to dinner at Lawrys after a couple of years since my last visit. Big disappointment. Their famous chilled and spun salad was limp and did not taste fresh. Biggest disappointment was quality of meat, had diamond jim Brady cut $55. Meat was a lump tasteless and unattractive, bone was all fat. Far better meat quality or taste at Ruth Chris or the palms. Looked and tasted more like outback or sizzler. Not what I expected. Have had better prime rib at universal hilton for 20 dollars less. Whole place needs upgrade booths and carpet shabby and booth too small. Service odd. Had ice cream pie texture was like defrosted and refrozen and no flavor . Birthday dinner and big let down.

    Over 25 years since we dined at Lawry's and the new premises are as elegantly decorated as the old. The food is still superb, service is just the best, polite, friendly and quite immaculate. Of course we had the prime rib and it is just the best. Not a restaurant for vegetarians!! Highly recommend Lawry's for the best dinner if you want to impress, to celebrate or just a trip down memory lane like us.

    This is the best place to celebrate a special occasion with family. It has become our tradition since we began taking my mother there for her birthday in 1982. We now enjoy celebrating anniversaries as well. The waitstaff always make you feel special no matter what your reason for dining at Lawry's.

He had a sense of humor and took the time to chat with us :) Thank you for the complimentary appetizers and delicious birthday cake!

    I have been going to Lawry's since the 1950's and my parent before that, etc. We not only go for the wonderful food but also love the atmosphere of dining in the grand dining room. This time we were ushered to a small back room weaving behind the kitchen or some other workstation. We had reservations too! We didn't say anything but next time, no back room for us. Other than that - you can't beat Lawry's prime rib, creamed spinach, and Yorkshire pudding! Love the food and the service. Always classy and delicious.

    All I can say is, this place is amazing! It was my first time here. Started off with some meatballs and potato chips, complimentary in the waiting room. The Prime Rib was by far the best I ever had. Literally melts in your mouth. Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Corn were also fantastic. Had a great server in Nicole P., and she made the entire experience even more special. Thank you Lawry's for the unforgettable meal!

    If you love Prime Rib, this is a place you need to experience. There other menu items are limited, but their specialty is the Prime Rib and it is great. They carve it right at your table from beautiful art deco serving carts. The standard meal includes French bread, a great salad (they spin the bowl in ice at your table when adding the dressing), mashed potatoes and gravy, and Yorkshire pudding. Additional sides are extra but I personally love the creamed corn. The standard meal is a good value for this type of dining. When you start adding drinks, side dishes, appetizers and desserts, of course it can really add up. Although it is a big restaurant, it is very quiet and the atmosphere is elegant. Great place for special occasions.

    Multi-generational birthday party - in a perfect environment for dressed up kids. Food was wonderful (with notably moderate salt levels), the space was charming and reminded me of special birthdays and occasions when I was a kid, without being stuffy or inhospitable to my kids including a restless 2 year old. The star, besides the prime rib, was the wonderfully attentive service.

    From the moment we walked in the door, we were not left unattended until our food arrived. We arrived a half hour prior to our reservation yet were promptly seated. Our waitress appeared almost instantly to introduce herself, deliver menus, and make sure we had anything we needed. Within a few minutes she was back to take our drink order, answer our questions regarding our meal selection, offer suggestions and take our order. A few minutes more and she returned with our drinks. After a short time our meal arrived at which time we were left to quietly enjoy our meal without further interruption. The prime rib and salmon were prepared perfectly, the coffee and dessert trifle were perfect. The entire experience was unforgettable.

    We had a little difficulty understanding buss boys. The foreign accents were hard for us to understand. Management should consider their English level who interface with dinner guests. We are dinner guests for Lawry's almost fifty years, good foods, nice environment, old days, we used to see Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra and his gangs. We know the place from old across the street. Christmas and Rose bowl are another big events for Lawry's. Tried other Lawry's out of town, but they are not like one in Beverly Hills.

    I've been to this restaurant before and had a much better experience and quality of food. On this recent and now I intend it to be my last visit to Lawry's, the server was short and curt when responding to questions. My meat had to be replaced three times before it was even edible. It was not a melt in your mouth experience. I had to force myself to eat because I was hungry. They drowned the plate in aux jus. I felt like I was having soup instead of prime rib. It was much more like a trip to a crowded tourist fair instead of fine dining faire. At $147 for two people (which I wouldn't mind if the food and experience was great) I will NEVER go again. My old fond memory of great experiences at Lawry's has vanished. A shame but they lost me!

    There are very few places in LA where you can get a great meal and service like Lawry's. The Prime Rib is the best in LA along with the top notch wait staff you have a guaranteed great evening. If you don't have reservations be prepared for a long wait, so make sure you plan accordingly! The only negative comment was it seems the salad was a little lax this trip, but probably since I was in a large group of 15.

    My son and I took my husband to Lawrys as a surprise for his birthday. He was thrilled to go to Lawrys as it's one of his favorite restaurants. From the drinks at the bar with appetizers, to the fabulous dinner, to the unforgettable desserts, everything was wonderful. The food just seemed extra delicious last night. We truly enjoyed our evening. The service we received was outstanding. Our waitress was so much fun, and so good at her job. Then her assistant was right on top of things, and we didn't have to wait for anything. Everyone working there is so polite, and makes you feel that they are so happy that you're there. All around, it was a great experience.

    As parents of small children, our time away from the kids is few and far between. We choose our places to dine with care and great thought. So, when we choose to spend our evening often times at Lawry's, it should be known what a great job they do and how much we appreciate the place. Ms. Yi is our favorite server and we always request her. Along with Ms. Sandra, they always make us feel welcome and are very attentive. The food is always fantastic as there is something to be said about a place that focuses on one main dish and makes it perfectly. The creamed corn is excellent and we never leave without having the hot fudge sundae.

    My dad is a prime rib lover. It is his favorite meal. I received the name of this restaurant as a recommendation from a friend who did not know that my dad was a prime rib afficianado. The food is great! The meat, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and sticky toffee pudding are out of this world! The service was also awesome! The historic wait staff uniforms and metal carts add to the atmosphere. I had no idea about all the history behind this restaurant.

    Dining at Lawry's is not just about the food. It is also about the old-style feeling and the outstanding service you will receive there. Of course, the food is a stand out. I always get a craving for the spinning bowl salad with Lawry's special French dressing. And no one does prime rib better! We live about an hour away, so we only go to Lawry's for special occasions. If I lived closer, I would definitely go more often. One of my all time favorite restaurants!

    I hadn't been to Lawry's for a couple of years due to a relocation, but Lawry's did not disappoint and lived up to my wonderful memories of past visits. The prime rib was wonderful as always and the service was warm and friendly. Although I was alone for this visit, Lawry's remains the perfect place to dine alone, as a couple for a special occasion or to bring the whole extended family for a celebration. One difference that I did notice is that the front desk staff seems to have changed and is much more hospitable than in the past.

    We have dined at Lawry's for over 45 years. For the past several years, the quality of the prime rib has come down from outstanding to good. There is just too much fat, the the meat is not as tender. What is most disappointing is the service. It use to be the servers were well trained and made you feel welcomed and appreciated. The quality of service is not what I would expect from a Beverly Hills restaurant. No smile, you have to help the server distribute drinks, the servers does not know who ordered what, you have to call the server if you want something, and the amount on the bill was incorrect.
