I special dinner was almost as good as the ‘old days’. Service was excellent. But I do miss the salads, the sliced bread, Tommy taking your drink order, the waitresses attire and all else that made Five Crowns very special,

Would have liked to be in a room with nicer ambiance. I feel like we were sitting in an Arboretum. My sons were happy with the room we were seated in so that was good. They had never been to 5 Crowns so I wanted them to have the full experience. They didn't really know what they were missing. 5 Crowns was a restaurant I used to go to with my parents. I hadn't been there in maybe 25 years. It was a special Mothers day gift from my sons .Before we were seated we enjoyed the bar area. Bartender in the bar was great. The food was still good and the service started out disappointing for how expensive the restaurant is. It got a little better through out the evening. My son who had been a Bartender and Server in past thought the service was not good It took them a while to get us our place settings and butter plates. Meanwhile there was bread on the table but nothing to put it on. No salt and pepper on the table. Oh well a lot has changed in 25 years. Very sad.

Let's get the nit picky stuff out of the way. Lobster Bisque was almost cold, the shrimp cocktail needed more cold. Now why we look forward to returning. It was Mother's day and stumbled on a cancellation and busy , were seated within in 10 minutes. I should add despite the restaurant being packed were greeted with a relaxed but professional friendliness. We were seated in their outside back patio, with the ever present Covid canopy. However,

The entire staff were attentive and absolutely amazing!!! I would like to add a special thank you to your wonderful Manager Eliza Karkafi whom was so very sweet and warm both on the phone while I confirmed my reservation and the day we dined at your restaurant. I definitely look forward to returning soon.

Took 86 year old Mother to brunch. Lovely ambiance, terrific service.
The food was very good, but we were surprised at the thin slice of Prime rib. We order Prime Rib regularly and this restaurant had the skimpiest cut at a high price.
I do not mind paying for good food and service, but this was a surprise from a Lawry’s property.
The service was very professional even though it was the busiest restaurant day of the year.
Background music was classic rock which I enjoyed although guitar solos seemed a bit out of place for the venue.

Went for my birthday. Two out of six in our party had to arrive a little late, but the staff accommodated us.
The food was amazing. Prime rib can’t be beat. The appetizers were all delicious. The cocktails were brilliant (I had the old fashioned).
I appreciated the part where the servers came out with the entrees and didn’t have to interrupt our dining experience by asking who ordered what. Instead they professionally presented us with our dinners.
I didn’t ask the waitress’s name (I’m sorry), but she was great.

I enjoyed my meal very much. The prime rib was seasoned to perfection and the creamed corn was superb. However, I marked on my reservation that we are celebrating a birthday. On Yelp reviews, other customers seemed to have received some type of special birthday dish on the house, and that wasn’t acknowledged on our behalf. In addition, it took about 30 minutes for our waitress to come back and take our order. The waiter who refilled our glasses and bread was very attentive and came back regularly. Overall, great food however a little disappointed on the birthday part.

This was our first time back at eating inside a restaurant. Five Crowns is still our favorite restaurant! The food & the service were impeccable. We showed up early for our reservation, but we were able to be seated early. The serving staff deserves an A+. We will continue recommending Five Crowns to all our friends & acquaintances. We actually live approximately 40 miles away, but the drive is always well worth it! Thanks again for the excellent experience & surpassing our latest expectations.

When making our reservation we ordered the Dry Rub Prime Rib for Prime Rib day. My husband had called earlier that day to confirm and was told everything was set. How disappointed we were at arrival to learn the restaurant was out of the Dry Rub Prime Rib. Since it was Restaurant Week, we were still able to enjoy a prime rib dinner. The meal was good and we enjoyed the anniversary dessert provided.
