Food was, as always, excellent. Our server, Kasey M was great! I recommend Five Crowns to all my friends.
Outstanding. Our waiter took fantastic care of my husband, child, and I! I believe his name was Mark. He was very busy but did not seem to busy to explain to us the different rooms and some of the history about the restaurant and building.
A birthday celebration dinner with friends. Thanks for a nice evening.
Happy Birthday! Thank you for choosing Five Crowns to celebrate. We hope to see you again soon so we can make your next visit 5-star worthy. Cheers.
Always outstanding service with great company.
Not a fan! Service was slow and not attentive. Even though they are famous for Prime Rib I wasn’t impressed and other menu choices were not that appealing. Probably would just do Side Door for drinks
Birthday celebration. Our server Starla was fabulous!
Happy Birthday! We love to read that you had a fabulous time and we love to know that Starla made it a memorable one. We're so grateful for her. Thank you for the review.
My birthday dinner and it was awesome. I have recommended it to friends and family! I joined the VIP club as well
Happy Happy Birthday! We're so happy to read that you had a great experience dining with us on your special day. Thank you for the review :)
Fabulous food reminiscing obout many family dinners we had there over the years. You can always count in a great meal. Quiet areas and louder areas like the side car available. Go and enjoy. You can’t go wrong!!!!
My wife and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary at Five Crowns. This was our first time eating at the establishment, and our expectations were blown. My wife and I agreed that the prime rib was the best we have ever tried. Our server, Reno, was very attentive to our many, many needs and wants and knowledgeable about the menu. He attempted to showcase the other entrees on the menu, but this being our first time at Five Crowns, how could we not order the English Cut with creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, and Yorkshire pudding? Next time, we will try the lamb chops and salmon. Finally, the cocktails were refreshing after a long day at work. I recommend the Fallen (Falling?) on the Rye.
Happy Anniversary! We're so thrilled to read that you had an amazing experience dining with us on your special day. Thank you for the review and sharing the details, we really appreciate the time it takes. Wishing you and yours all the best. Thank you again.
It was very nice. The food a bit over priced for what it was.
Thank you for the review, Paul.
Always excellent. The food is fantastic and the service is great. For a quieter meal, book during their first seating, usually 430pm.
Thank you for the review, Jerry, and for the recommendation on early dining. Cheers :)
Wonderful meal and atmosphere.
Thank you, Patrica! Cheers :)
Enjoyed our anniversary dinner at The Five Crowns.
Happy Anniversary! Thank you for choosing Five Crowns to celebrate such a special date. We appreciate the stars and review. All the best.
Jessica was extremely attentive, friendly and gracious. Even though we brought our own wine, she made sure to always pour our wine. Jessica would periodically come by and ask how we where doing.
The cherry on top was that by the time she came to drop off the check, Jessica automatically and proactively added my VIP loyalty rewards onto my bill. She truly anticipated my need.
Had a wonderful dinner; it’s been almost two years that I haven’t been here! Food was excellent and prime rib was just the way I remembered it!
Thank you for a making our Monday night memorable Jessica!
We're so grateful for Jessica and thrilled to know she made your dining experience one to remember. Thank you for the review and we hope to see you again soon. All the best.
Our server was great,,,Jessica just started and did a perfect job ,,,a little to Loud

Food was great like always. Service was perfect
Thank you, Henry! We appreciate the stars and review.
Only negative mash potatoes very poor. Car was wet when we left. No signs anywhere else of rain. Everything else very good especially our hostess Becky

Service was perfect from the time that we were seated by the hostess to the end of our meal. Our server, Gregg was perfectly attentive throughout our entire meal.
The Pride Crowns Salad was delicious. F/C Special cut Prime Rib was chewy and extremely fatty. The Yorkshire Pudding was nearly burnt and didn't taste fresh.
I honestly expected better from a Lawry's Restaurant.

Haven’t been in a few years. Returning last night definitely was not the same experience I’ve had in the past. We were greeted late after being seated, butter lettuce salad was just okay (A’s had a similar salad, but far better), pretzel was good, but the cheese sauce was chunky and curdled, got the 10oz prime rib and it was so thin. Temperature of food was like warm, no au jus on it or offered, so we asked. It was just a very average dinner. My prior experience was far better and felt like a restaurant suitable for a nice dinner date. Not anymore unfortunately.

Started with lobster bisque hot flavorful could maybe use more lobster chunks, great flavored croutons. Meal was large cut prime rib well prepared and good flavor, Au jus and creamed horseradish. Sides, cream corn tasty, mashed potatoes pedestrian not much flavor, creamed spinach good not great and English popover very good if you've never had one traditional with this meal. Other meal prime rib dip very good, with potato chips and Lawry's season salt good but be careful it comes out quick. Mac n cheese nice if you like blue cheese which I'd prefer not. Dessert 1/2 hour prep standard for chocolate lava cake not sweet enough. Overall 4 stars, maybe change the name to four crowns. Mostly Good but not fabulous IMO.
Thank you for the detailed review. Happy Anniversary :) We appreciate the time it takes to share the details. Wishing you all the best.
The room was filled with sound but we were seated too close to our neighbors and it was uncomfortable.
Should have asked for a different table.
Thank you for the review. We're sorry to read about your disappointment with the seating arrangement. We do hope you enjoyed your meal and service. Wishing you all the best.
Food was tasteless, prime rib, no au jus, runny potatoes and spinach . Salad
Disappointing won’t be hurrying back
Hello Jillian - we're sorry to read about your disappointment with the meal you ordered. Please know that we've made note and will work to ensure a better experience in the future. Thank you fo your candidness.
Reserved an indoor table for a birthday party for 9 people. When we got there the table was being prepared but when we were brought to it it ended up being outside. There are heaters so the cold was bearable but there was a significant draft on one side of the table and the food got cold very quickly. I should have asked to be moved inside when I saw the table wasn't where I requested, but I didn't, and I regret it. The ambiance outside is not at all special like the inside rooms. The food was good but not great. I have been going to 5 Crowns since the early 80's and still has a lot of its original charm albeit having some tasteful updates. I hadn't been for almost 15 years and the prices have gone up but not a whole lot. The Henry VIIIth cut is $59 which is pretty reasonable for the size of the piece of prime rib. The kids fish and chips was painfully small though...one small piece of fish and a bowl of fries (we had to ask for tartar sauce as they forgot it). The hazy beer was drawn from the bottom of the tank so the second one looked like unfiltered apple cider. My sister was served the wrong cocktail. The butternut squash was just ok...barely...pretty blah. The salads have shrunk and the presentation isn't spot on...also $18 Hendrick's martinis?... everything is just a little more than it should be and the service is not what it used to be...no chilled fork for your salad...no serving dishes to cover your plate and keep the food warm....less attentive staff and...standardized and modernized server wear....no more knickers! Which were kind of silly but that was one of the things that made 5 Crowns (modeled after Ye Old Bell at Hurley) so special. I hope they decide to up their game and return to their former glory.
Stale rolls, greasy tempura w/too much soy flavoring in batter and too little batter coating, cream corn: too much added sugar, potato gratin: very bland and Yorkshire pudding: misnamed it was a popover!
It wasn’t busy, appeared to be adequate wait staff but our waitress was not very attentive with long periods in between food and drink deliveries.
We're sorry to read about your disappointing dining experience. Please know that we've made note are are working hard during this challenging time to ensure a better experience in the future. Thank you for your candid review.
The manager, Eliza, is fantastic. They are very lucky to have her. Eliza is attentive and as sweet as can be. She did her very best for making things as good as it could have been. We love Lawry’s and Five Crowns but last night was an off night to be sure. The prime rib was plated sloppily and it was more fatty than ever. The service was slow to non-existent. In fact, after the meal was served, it took a little army to get me a knife as mine had been removed with the salad. Of course, we want to go back one day but for now, it’s not high on my list of places to go.
Hello Carol - Thank you for your candid review. We're sorry to read about your recent disappointing dining experience. It's important for us to know the details and please know we are working hard during this challenging time to ensure top-notch dining experiences Five Crowns is known for.

Our waiter Reno provided excellent service. Very knowledgeable and courteous.
We love to know that Reno made your dining experience a memorable one. We're lucky to have him on our team :) Thank you so much for the review and stars.
Food and drinks were great! Especially the vegetable tempura. Our server Wednesday was outstanding, she did a great job making my husband’s birthday special.
Thank you for the review! Happy Birthday to your husband :) We're delighted to read that Wednesday made the dining experience and celebration a memorable one. Wishing you all the best. Thanks again.
Love this place and the prime rib is the best in town!!! The garden seating area is so nice and warm with the heaters. My wife didn't love the soup, but she's not into English cuisine either, so maybe it's just her. The staff is always amazing and I cannot wait to go back!!!
Thank you, Hayes! We love to know that you had a great experience and we appreciate you sharing about it. We do hope your wife enjoyed other parts of her meal. Thank you for the review and we look forward to having you back.
Cozy atmosphere with superb service and quality food...all in all a very pleasant experience. Would highly recommend.
Thank you, Linda! We appreciate the review and the recommendation. It's great to know that you enjoyed your dining experience, thank you for sharing.
My family and I came here to celebrate my sister's birthday yesterday. We arrived early, and got seated an hour earlier than our 8:15 pm reservation, no fuss. Had to wait for our second party to arrive, and all the while, our server, Wednesday, made sure we were taken care of with our drinks, and the dinner rolls. She was friendly, attentive, and very quick to observe when we would need something.The price of the fare is what you can expect from this level of venue and service.
Our food was incredible! We all had ordered the Crown Cut and English Cut, and the meat was very tender and juicy. The lobster bisque was creamy and - thank goodness - not very salty. All of us enjoyed our drinks (Glenmorangie 12, Old Fashioned (smoked), Ginger Snap, and St Michelle Indian Wells Merlot). Our dessert was the chocolate soufflé and it was decadent!
Thank you for an overall wonderful experience. We'll be sure to come back here again.
We're so delighted to read that you and your guests enjoyed their dining experience. Thank you for choosing Five Crowns to celebrate your sister's special day. Happy Birthday to her :) We appreciate all the details in your review and love to know that you look forward to returning. We can't wait to serve you again. Happy New Year!
Wish I have nothing but great things to say about Five Crowns but my prime rib was just okay. Not tasty nor was I given a good cut even though I ordered their Crown Cut. My portion was tiny. Sides were average and not hot.The service was average. The only thing that made it special was that they had holiday Carolers which warmed my heart. I will be sticking to Lawrys in Beverly Hills and Summit House in Fullerton.
This is an annual dinner, for my wife's birthday. The food was wonderful, and the service was excellent, as always.
Thank you for the review, Ron! Happy Birthday to your wife :) Thank you for choosing Five Crowns to celebrate. We're happy to read that you all had a wonderful time. All the best and happy new year.
What a disappointment. I have enjoyed Five Crowns for over 45 years and will not be back until the restaurant management has addressed it current issues. The server was overewhelmed with too may tables making the evening laborisly slow and frustrating.
The food was poor, crab cakes were dry and salty, the I only reason I ate it was I was famished by the time it arrived. My son's steak was overcooked and had to be sent back.
My past experience with Five Crowns has been well above average and commendable. Major disappointment. I hope this is a Covid related dysfunction and hope this condition will be resolved. I cannot blame the staff as they tried their best given the situation they were thrown into. Management needs to get it's act together before I return.
Thank you for your candid review. We're sorry to read about your disappointing dining experience. Please know that we are working hard during this challenging time to ensure a better experience in the future. With recent adjustments, we hope to be back open soon to offer the service and culinary experiences that are expected when dining with us at Five Crowns. Again, we appreciate your review and do look forward to serving you again in the future. All the best and happy new year.
We have our annual Holiday family dinner at Five Crowns...it was a magical experience, as usual. The Carolers are excellent, and always make it very special. See you next year !
Thank you for the review, Thom! We love to know that you and your guests enjoyed our carolers and holiday cheer. We look forward to see you again. Happy New Year.
It was a wonderful meal, stellar service, warm inviting atmosphere!
Will definitely return!
