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.

    We always enjoy a perfect prime rib at Lawry's and this was no exception. We could actually cut it with a fork. The spinning bowl salad is our favorite and our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Lawry's is our favorite for special occasions, but this visit was just because it's always so good!

    The service was great, the prime rib awesome, and while i had the Lawrys cut....the smaller portion would have been more than enough! The Spinning Salad Bowl is great. Quite, elegant, no screaming kids, no one texting or chatting on a cellphone... a VERY nice dinner.

    This was our third visit and we chose Lawry's because they had a 1000 point table at 8 on a Saturday. While we have had better steak in other steakhouses, Lawry's is still very good and doesn't disappoint. The potatoes and spaghetti squash sides were amazing. When it is just the two of us dining we typically prefer more intimate settings and Lawry's seems to cater to large groups including families with children. Luckily we have always been seated in a booth that provides a bit of privacy. The server was attentive and helpful.

    Simply the best steak and prime rib in all of Dallas.....salads cool, crisp and colorful....unlimited wine and beverage list.....deserts to die for....service is SUPERNATURAL starting with the General Manager, to the wait and bus staff...they cater to your every dining need and make you feel so special. Ask for Ms Miller as she is the best. We have been to most all dining establishments in DALLAS during the past 25 years....we keep coming back to Lawrys each month. You can never get enough of a good thing.

    This is one of my favorite places any where for Prime Rib. My wife and I celebrated my retirement at Lawry's on 6/20; we both ordered Lawry's cuts, Med/Rare. Her's was cooked to perfection; mine was much more medium than it should have been. I should have sent it back, but we were both so hungry and caught up in the moment. I had a few bites of her prime rib and there was a noticeable difference. The overall dining experience has always been exceptional, but management should consider re-evaluating their consistency.

    For this restaurant to be as exclusive as it was v it should have been a way better experience. I went there on the recommendation of another but my experience was nothing like theirs. I will not go back nor recommend this place to anyone. For a ribeye to be 49 and dry, that's not worth buying.

    Waaaay too much dressing on the "spinning" salad. Two of the chairs at our table seemed to be broken--very squeaky with loose backs--my son and daughter-in-law didn't want me to bring attention to it so I didn't! To be honest with you it wasn't the first class restaurant I always remembered it as. This was the first time we'd been there in about 2 years.

    Extremely upset with how the waiter didn't pay attention to detail and my order was wrong. He didn't even attempt to apologize or get it right but just offered us a creamed spinach. We are frequent visitors but this night we felt aweful. Our son even stated the waiter was bad.

    The wait staff is very accommodating without being intrusive. The food was all cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. We had prime rib with the mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding, the Lawry's rib-eye with scalloped potatoes, cream of corn and the sautéed mushrooms. Everything was suburb with the exception of the mashed potatoes- which I think are good- but not fantastic.

    I love this restaurant for its cozy atmosphere. We've enjoyed their lobster bisque and spinning bowl salad each and every time! Some of their choices of sides aren't particularly to our taste, but we've also learned that after having the soup and salad there is no need for any sides any way. Some day we'll even try to leave room for dessert! They look delicious.

    If you want a restaurant with atmosphere, delicious food, a waitor who delivers superb service with a great personality eat at Lawry's and ask for a table with Travis Thompson. He is top of the line. Carlos is wonderful too. Very professional. The bar tenders are very friendly. Lars does an excellent job making sure everything runs smoothly.

    I was slightly disappointed at the service me and my girlfriend received that night. I made the reservation and was seated promptly upon arrival - a plus. The waiter is where my experience began to move downhill (that's not to say it was terrible). He was clearly being more attentive to his other tables in the same area. Being more involved with their dinner selections and just overall more friendly. Not sure what the problem was, but he came to our table about 3-4 times (leaving the check included), never checking on us until our food arrived. The food - was outstanding. Very hot and fresh. I would recommend this restaurant, just be careful, some of their wait staff can be a bit... "choosy" about who they want to treat right.

    Lawry's never disappoints. The food is great, the atmosphere is quiet and the service is excellent. Is a trendy, "got to be seen" spot – no? Is it cutting edge tastes - no? Is it a great place to go to have a great meal . . . and relax - yes! I personally get tired of "the" places in Dallas - and Lawry’s is always an exceptional experience. Our waiter on this visit could not have been more pleasant, attentive and accommodating. Overall we keep coming back to Lawry’s . . . not to be scene!

    There are so many great steakhouses that ruin everything with overdone decor, lots of TVs, and crowded spaces. Lawry's is not like that. You can have an elegant dinner and not walk out with your ears ringing. I am not a fan of prime rib. But they do a great filet, and I love the atmosphere. The only spec on a wonderful evening — we don't drink alcohol or order appetizers, since we are diabetic. It seems that the tables that are obviously bigger spenders get a bit more of the service staff's attention.

    Made a reservation and we were seated right on time. The food was excellent and,as expected, the price is not for the faint of heart. The service was ok...my side order didn't make it to the table. I expected more attention to detail from a high end restaurant. Overall, Lawry's was enjoyable and the prime rib was excellent. We will go back and I would recommend it to others.
