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.

  • Lawry's Still Stands Out
    AmyDinMVVIP
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    In a market crowded with expensive, special occaision restaurants, Lawry's still stands out. No other place makes you feel excited and special. Upon entering you know you are in a place where the staff have mastered the art of service. How do they find such excellent staff who make you feel like you are in a formal, fabulous setting, yet still amongst close friends who want to make the experience relaxing and enjoyable? The service here is really an art form. The food of course is just excellent. Somehow the find the prime rib that never has gristle or too much fat. The creamed corn is in a class by itself. We will be back again, and again!

    Ambience was handsome. Th snacks while waiting with a drink were just plain ordinary. The meal was a genuine disappointment: altho the meat was good (not great), the salad was tired . Most disappointing was the presentation from the carving cart, the food simply plopped onto the plate. Most importantly the server reached across us, and so hurried us, that I had to ask her to slow the pace. definitely not a fine dining experience:I felt like I was in a pretty good cafeteria,at best

    Our waitress wasn't the greatest. Only checked up on us once throughout the meal to ask how it was. There was even a time when she checked the two tables next to us how they were doing but decided to skip on us. Decided that the food was great but the service is horrible, so I would never come here again.

    We always make it a point to dine at Lawry's whenever we go to Southern California. We live in Oregon and there is no restaurant that even comes close to severing the prime rib like Lawry's. The spinning salad, it definitely amazing!!!

    It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. I don't think I've ever had better prime rib. I don't typically order prime rib as I tend to prefer fillets and rib-eyes, but I thought I'd try it being that this was their specialty and they did not disappoint. The sides are good too, and plentiful. Mashed potatoes and cream corn were fantastic. I love that they carve your prime rib right in front of you as well. If I could afford it, I would eat here at least once a week.

    I've been to Lawry's three times in the past six months, and each time I've had an issue. First time, they misread the tip amount and overcharged me (even though the total listed on the bottom of the receipt should have clued them in). Second time, they didn't send over the birthday dessert (instead putting a candle on the dessert we already ordered), but we were full from dinner so I didn't hold it against them. Third time, server forgot to bring over tomatoes for the salad, never mentioned it again, and didn't bother checking in with us during our meal. I'm going to stop going to Lawry's and spend my money elsewhere.

    I celebrated my birthday at Lawry's and had a great time. The food and service was excellent. We had a wonderful server who really made sure we had a great time. I ordered my usual English cut with creamed spinach and my husband ordered the Lawry's cut prime rib with peas and corn...both of our prime rib orders were perfectly medium, flavorful and tender. We will be back again soon!

    The cocktails are amazing and the prime rib is superb! My only complaint (which would be hard to remedy) is that they always seat our group of 5 in a booth. There's absolutely no leg room! Other than that, the experience is fab!

    A very reliable, old school dining experience. We think the waitress uniforms are ridiculous and wonder why they are keeping such an outdated tradition. Otherwise the service was very good and the food was its usual artery clogging experience :)

    I went on a Tuesday night and had to wait for 30 minutes with reservation. We were seated at a semi-comfortable booth right next to another party and I can overhear their conversations. I am also literally 3 feet away from the table across from us so I can stare at the people eating there straight if I want to. But don't get me wrong - I love Lawry's prime rib. Sides and salads are yummy as well. Service is always good. It's jut the overly crowded environment that turns me off a little. Will continue to come.

    I have been going to Lawry's since the 1950's. It was a favorite of my parents and remains a favorite of mine. The quality of the food has always been outstanding. The portions have always been generous. They have never cut back on the size of the portions and the price that is charged is very reasonable, especially since you really do get prime beef. The service is always very professional, welcoming and efficient. JUst thinking about the experience makes me hungry for more. Join their club and get points that translate to coupons that give either monetary discounts, double points, personalized Lawry's salt and pepper, or free apetizers (which includes the shrimp coctail which is $16. I love the place. It's a real treat.

    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!!!

    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.
