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.

  • Very good, but a couple of small complaints
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    We were particularly turned off by the somewhat deceptive offer of sides with the prime rib. You have to be in the know to realize that these are $7 add-ons. Several people said "oh, I'll take a little spinach", but would not have done so for the extra $7. This added an unnecessary $28 to our bill (plus tax and tip). Also, my 95 yo mother wanted mint jelly with her lamb. Now I know that modern chefs scoff at this, but really, what does it hurt? But of course, the kitchen does not have any mint jelly.

    Cesar salad was very bland, but the Prime Rib was superb!! Weird that the host pulled out the table to allow us to sit down. Nice touch with a cold fork with the salad course. Waiter seemed knowledgeable although he read from the menu. He was nice though!

  • Lawry's is not the restaurant it used to be!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/23/2014
    Upon entering the restaurant the man that opened the door had sneakers on. I realize he was double duty; valet and doorman ~ but not a good impression. We went to the desk where no one greeted us. We had to hunt someone down and then they didn't come promptly. The waiter always seemed to be torn as to which table he should be attending his service. IIf memory serves me correctly, when placing your order you would order a souffle if you wanted one for dessert. That is still the case, but not the desired flavor. Your choice was the flavor of the day. We were accommadated with being able to share our meal! That is appreciated.

    The covered complimentary valet at the door is really a good idea since it was raining the night we went. We were greeted immediately and taken to our table and the waiter was taking our drink order in minutes. He was always on the spot to attend to any of our needs. Thats where the "great experience" ends and the "good experience" begins. The prime rib was cooked to order, medium rare, and tender but the flavor was kind of bland and needed additional seasoning. The dessert, creme brulee, was a little too sweet but still satisfying. My date did not want any of the desserts on the menu so the waiter had the kitchen make her strawberries and whipped cream. The table next to us liked the looked of it and ordered the same. My date really liked her prime rib and the dessert so we plan to try it again. Next time I will try a different item on the menu. Overall a very nice dining experience and attentive staff.

    It was only the 3rd time that I have been at Lawry's. The 1st two times were perfect. This time the Prime rib was cold,,, They gave us the table we wanted, seated us right away. The waitress and manager took care of us by comping one meal and a free desert. It was the 1st time for our friends. They were disappointed. Me too. It was our 10th Anniversary. S.H.

    The food was great and the server was great as well but it took way to long (over 35 minutes after salad was served) for the main course to be served. Not sure why it took so long as the room was not crowded at all.

    Excelent food, service, and overall experience was great! It's a tad pricy but not too bad. It's worth the extra $20 or $30$ a person compared to the average restaurant! Great for special occasions, or if you're just in the mood for an above average dining experience and looking to spend a little more for Excelent tasting food and over the top service Lawry's is the place to go! The dining room is magnificent, small in size but great in detail! A great restaurant for any party between 2-6 people. You definitely recieve the value for what you pay.

    We had previously dined at Lawry's in Chicago and were wowed by the atmosphere, the food and the presentation. The Dallas location was just as good. Our entire group enjoyed their dinner and, particularly, the prime rib, the salads and the desserts. You rarely find prime rib like this anymore. The service was attentive and helpful with their willingness to answer our questions and make recommendations.

    I have been going to Lawry's for about 50 years! First with my parents in the Beverly Hills location then now to the Dallas one. While we don't eat a lot of beef, when we have an anniversary, birthday or want to entertain some friends, Lawry's is a first choice because the prime rib is the best in the world! The service is always excellent, the ambiance is elegant, and it feels like a mini-retreat unlike most loud and crowded restaurants these daysi. I will continue to go especially for festive events and we have introduced our grandchildren who will carry on the tradition we are sure! Lastly, I love their rewards program and look forward to receiving the certificates.

    The family has been to the Beverly Hills location numerous times and we were in Dallas for the weekend so what better then to celebrate at belated birthday at the restaurant we go to for most birthdays and various other celebrations. It was like we never left home. The service, the spinning salad, the prime rib and all the fixings. We loved it. The only difference is there were mostly male waiters the night we went vs the Beverly Hills location which is virtually all female. It did not matter, we were there for the food and it hit the mark as expected.

    Most everything was really fine as usual. This was a church affair, paid dinner. When the bill came, it had tax on it. The TX Comptroller's letter I had was not acceptable to the corporate HQ in CA. I have never had it rejected before at restaurants or hotels. This was confusing. The manager was nice, but unable to change the corporate direction. She showed the form they need. I found it and am in the process of sending it in. I emailed an unsigned version and received confirmation that it is what they need. Well, what IS confusing is that the form has NOTHING on it that was not on the letter from the TX Comptroller's office I had presented. This makes no sense to me, but I am following the rules for you

    My husband and I have been going to Lawry's for more than 20 years and we have seen a lot of changes. Last Wednesday evening we dined again to find more changes! Our meal started with a shrimp cocktail which was very good. However, things soon went downhill....... I ordered the Lawry's cut prime rib and my husband ordered the filet, cooked medium rare. After 30 minutes he said the steak was almost ready. 20 minutes later he said the kitchen was trying to cook it just right. Finally, the meal was served and it was poor. My prime rib was so tough I could not cut it with a steal knife!!!! We took the meat home and finally threw it away. It will be a while till we are going back again..
