A word from Lawry's The Prime Rib - Dallas
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.

    Went on Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. Asked for a booth, got a table in a crowded section. Asked for a certain seasoned server, got a rookie. Order was off in some ways. Baked potato was cold.

    My husband and I dined here for our first anniversary on September 27th. This was my first visit and I was very impressed. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. I was having difficulty trying to find a wine that I liked and he made several recommendations. Unfortunately, I did not like any of the ones he brought me, but he was so patient and polite. The food was outstanding! The setting was perfect for our anniversary and it was nice to sit down and not be rushed through a meal and out the door. I look forward to dining here again!

    You will never go wrong at Lawry's, and I have been so spoiled that I would never eat prime rib anywhere else except Lawry's. Now, top that off with the spinning salad and the yorkshire pudding, and I always leave extremely satisfied. The flavors linger on the palate for a very long time.

    We love the prime rib at Lawry's, but be careful if you order anything other than the prime rib. Several times now we've brought in large parties and whenever someone orders something other than the prime rib, their food is always delayed. Some of the servers are good about remembering to turn orders for pork, lamb or salmon and wait until it is done, but the other night for my parents anniversary the waiter didn't turn in the order and then served everyone at the table and my father had to wait until dessert for a meal because they rushed his lamb, which was raw when he got it and they had to put it back on the grill to finish it and it seemed to take forever. I picked Lawry's but will reconsider the next time we have a family event.

    Food not seasoned or hot enough. Was really looking forward to going there with fiancé that had never been there and was completely disappointed. I hate to tell you but prime rib at Houstons is much better. I hadn't been there very recently and it truly wasn't nearly as good as it used to be. One of my daughters said the last time she was there for supper it also wasn't that good. We had gone there because we had gotten our marriage license that day and really didn't enjoy our meal. Sorry

    The food was great, but the service was even better. Our waiter, Mr. Thompson was exceptional, answering all questions and making sure that we were served well. The entire staff pitched in, bringing additional drinks, to-go boxes, anything that you could possibly think of. The setting was nice and there were a lot of additional "nice touches." The prime rib is served in a large silver cart and carved tableside. The salmon was DELICIOUS, as were the mashed potatoes and asparagus. Wasn't crazy about the crab cakes, but that could just be my personal taste preference. Couldn't have improved on the salmon dish, prime rib or the service though.

    Lawry's is a great venue for an anniversary or other milestone occasion. The venue is old school with hard woods and deep colors. The food and service were excellent! I will definitely return again as they meet the mark every single time. If you are entertaining younger clients, this is not the for them as this is a more mature venue.

    Once again, the food was outstanding. Lobster bisque very good. Lobster tail trio perfect. Prime rib, soft flavorful and done perfectly. Hot fudge sundae huge, cheesecake excellent. Service was a little slow between courses, especially waiting for the desserts which should have had minimal wait. We were seated in a comfortable, plush booth but several times there was banging on the wall behind our booth that made us wonder if we were in a bowling alley.

    I've been to Lawry's over 20 times this year, but this visit for me, was a let down. My Prime Rib was cold, dry and over cooked but my family's food was spot on. Because of my previous experience at this location, I plan to return because all my other visits were 5 stars, this was a very high 2.

    The restaurant came highly recommended so we were really looking forward to our dinner. Was expecting really tender prime rib however both of us were disappointed. Great ambiance and a very nicely appointed restaurant. Server was very personable however seemed to lack the skills you would expect to find in a finer dinning establishment

    This restaurant is always great. Went with two friends/co-workers, neither having been there before. Both were very impressed with the ambiance and the food. Although the server was ok, he was far from the best. Prime rib ... perfect. potatoes ... perfect. Salads were very nice as well. If you dessert, the Creme Brule is good.

    My wife and I make it a point to come to Lawrys every Labor Day weekend when we visit Dallas. This visit, we were 30 minutes late. Our fault, but upon our arrival, the hostess's couldnt seem to care. They told us the wait for a table would be "a few minutes" which turned out to be an additional 30+ minutes. After being seated, the the waitress seemed overtaxed (too many tables, too few staff?). We ordered souffle's at the beginning of the meal and waited 15+ minutes after the end of the meal (over an hour for two persons) and when the souffles did arrive, they were severely undercooked. The explaination that was given was that the kitchen was so busy that the oven temperature was affected by the door being open so often. Duh?

    I've been for dinner before and loved the ambience, so really didn't know what to expect for lunch. When we were seated, no one really told us our options as to how to get our lunch, but we figured it out. Service was somewhat lacking until the end. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and the waiter did bring her a nice desert and sang H.B., so that made up for bad service earlier! I think it's a great place for a business luncheon, but not so much for a casual lunch.

    Starting with the Spun Salad the dressing was weak and bland. When the waiter asked why the salads were pushed aside. Instead of getting us fresh salad with a different dressing, she just said "oh", and walked away. As for the prime rib, I ordered medium rare and the other party ordered medium, We both ended up with bloody red or rare. I can eat rare, but prefer what I ordered. It was on the tough side and not particularly flavorful,. The spinach was overly seasoned, so that did not get eaten at all either. The mashed potatoes were fine, but would seem to have been a mix rather than fresh. At some point the manager came by and asked how everything was. We told her. She got mad and stormed off.

    Waitress was young and too inexperienced to perceive our subtle cues that we wanted to sip a drink or two before ordering. Finally had to tell her to leave us alone for awhile. Spinning salad good but nothing special - just gimmicky. My filet was excellent. Date's Prime Rib was excellent. Sides were nothing to write home about. My scallops were so dried up and well-done they had a rubbery texture and were more akin to scallop jerky. My date's crab cakes were good. Finally, our sundaes were melted slop with some whipped cream on top. WTF? We went out for ice cream afterward. My first and last visit to Lawry's.

    Can't say we'll be coming back here. The best thing about Lawry's is the parking, plenty of parking spots, and valet is complementary if you want it. Food: Prime rib was cooked medium rare as requested. Sides were decent. We ordered shrimp, and it came out raw, grey fleshed and all. Service: 1 hour between receiving our appetizers and entrees and the place was only about 2/3 full, not sure if it was because we looked young. They over-charged us 3 times. Once I understand, but twice? and then thrice?? I've worked as a waiter before, and I would've made sure the charges were correct if I made a mistake the first time, especially at an above average establishment. I don't see us coming back anytime soon...
