A word from Lawry's The Prime Rib - Dallas

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.

    Our first visit was during restaurant week. There were four adults in our party. We were all delighted with the food and the service. Even when our dining room was full it was easy to hold a conversation and we weren't even aware that the room was full until someone noticed it. We're looking forward to returning.

    Food was pretty good. I wasn't a fan of the prime rib though and that is what they are known for. Small portion sizes even though there are two meat options for restaurant week menu. I didn't care for the citrus mousse either. Service was good though!

    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...

    My fiance and I decided to take advantage of the Restaurant Week menu. It was a bit crowded due to it being restaurant week, but we had a brief wait for our table and were able to take advantage of the bartender's recommendations for some specialty drinks that were excellent (Strawberry Gin Cocktail & Skinny Margarita). My fillet was cooked perfectly to my specifications and his prime rib was excellent. The service by Mr. Mimms was incredible, from recommending a good wine, to the table presentation of the spinning salad and slicing of the prime rib, to accommodating my food allergy; he didn't miss a beat. I only wish we had saved enough room for dessert but hopefully we'll plan ahead for next time.

    Having only dined at the Lawry's in Beverly Hills, I was very excited to go to Dallas. The waiter was impeccable, the food outstanding. We had the restaurant week menu which was $45 and came with salad, your choice of two entree selections (i.e., prime rib and lobster, steak and shrimp, etc.) and dessert. It was fabulous. The entire experience, although they were very busy, was definitely one I would do again.

    My wife and I had reservations at another restaurant for Restaurant Week, then read terrible reviews about it, so we picked Lawry's as a replacement. When I went on their website, I found their dinner deal for August which actually turned out to be a better deal, as it was the full prime rib dinner or salmon PLUS a bottle of wine! The meal was wonderful, and our server was great. The only complaint I had was that she had another table that kept demanding her attention, and she didn't seem to be in control enough to deal with them and check on her other tables regularly. Otherwise, everything about the experience was wonderful!

    My wife and I took my parents out for my dad's birthday to his favorite restaurant and it was a disappointing experience from start to finish. My parents don't drink, so when we all ordered iced tea the waiter kind of checked out. He was forgetful and the food took forever to come out after ordered. Watching others that were seated after us complete their entire meal before our food ever arrived became frustrating. The quality of the food wasn't what it used to be either. The kicker was at the end when I received the bill of $211, which was fine and accurate. They kindly put two calculations for gratuity on the bill, 18% - $48 and 20% - $56. This math is no where near accurate! The last time I will eat at a once great Dallas restaurant.

    Have always loved the restaurant but was very disappointed Friday night. Prime rib was not warm - it was "cold". Dessert was ice cream - funny - it say in the kitchen so long that there was no cream to it - it was "liquid". Normally it is very good, but I was very unhappy with food and service Friday night.

    Unexpected
    Dined on 8/14/2014
    We went to Lawry's Prime Rib for my daughters birthday and we picked the restaurant week menu. The food was delicious and the ambiance was great and so was the wine. However when we got the bill we had charges added for sides that our waiter asked us nonchalantly if we wanted when serving the prime rib. There was no indication that this was an additional cost it was very sly. Then when we were paying the bill we got a sales pitch to join the rewards program. Did not expect anything like this in a place like Lawry's.

    Lawry's was our first stop during restaurant week 2014. Dinner was incredibly good and service was very attentive. Our server was very knowledgeable if we had questions and explained everything he was giving us/doing for us. The food was delicious! For $45 you get the spinning salad bowl, choice of meat + lobster tail/scallops/shrimp, and dessert. I chose the prime rib with the lobster tail, originally $48 for the entree on the regular menu. We also got the optional appetizer which was the Terikyaki glazed ribs which was also amazingly tasty and fall off the bone tender. All in all, a great dinner experience!

    My family met here for dinner last Sunday night to celebrate our 22 year old daughter's birthday. We have been dining at to Lawry's for years and it was her choice to eat there. The service was excellent. Christine was our waitress and she was a true professional. Orders were perfect and the food was delicious. We all had the Prime Rib. It was cooked to everyone's individual specification. We had bought a specialty cake and they served it for us. It truly was an enjoyable evening and we will definitely be back. They never disappoint us.

    Five adults ordered Lawry's cut prime rib. The cuts are not consistent. One diner's piece slimmed down to about 1/4". Was definitely not the 10 oz they say it should be. For the price they should over cut; not under cut! Sides from the kitchen did not arrive until we were half done with the meal. This use to be one of our favorite places to celebrate the special occasions; but we have been disappointed during the last several visits.

    In celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary Lawry's was ideal. The service was superb - very sophisticated, yet warm and personal. Naturally the prime rib was beyond delicious and the side dishes were varied and also well prepared. And the wine we chose was a perfect match to the meal. The overall presentation was pure class. Lawry's is the place of choice for a celebratory dinner.

    Lawry's is the most delightful place in Dallas for a Sunday Family brunch. The food is always outstanding, at any time, but the relaxed atmosphere and low sound level makes it a memorable place for family's to visit, without having to scream at one another over a noisy kitchen and loud music.

    We have enjoyed Lawry's for the past 25 years, both old and newer location, usually a special occasion. Overall the food was good. The lobster was great, but the prime rib was a little tough this trip. We have never experienced this before and hesitated to complain since two of us were dining on their August Special Dinner for Two at $99. Shame on us. We still had a nice overall experience, and our waiter was the perfect combination of attentive and personable without being either stuffy or too friendly. He was able to read us and determine when to proceed with conversation, etc. We love the atmosphere of this restaurant since it is elegant, comfortable, and quiet enough to enjoy conversation- but not too quiet.

    My wife and I dined for our anniversary. It was her first visit and my first in a couple of years. I found the prime rib exceptionally fatty. Our waitress had too many tables she was trying to take care of. Her fillet was over cooked and charred. Her scallop potatoes were undercooked and cold. It just wasn't the top notch experience I was a custom to.

    Service was slow. 6:30 reservations, but did not leave until shortly before 9pm. Seven (7) people in the reservation, larger than usual, but not overly large. Made it clear when I made the reservations this was the birthday celebration for my father who turned 92. I watched the carving cart circle the room several times. It was 8pm before the entree was served/delivered. I had to remind the server twice that this was a birthday celebration. For the price the service was unacceptable. We will return, but only for special situations. I was considering checking into the restaurant for a professional organization after work meeting, but not any longer.
