Lawry's The Prime Rib - Beverly Hills
Book your next event with us
We will return.
Horrible service and two couples ate and left before we were served. Very disappointed as it was my birthday.
Off tonight. Disappointed. Our server did not take care of the table. We felt like an afterthought
A fan for 60 years and last night the food and service was just fair.
We are not newcomers to Lawry's. This was, by a significant margin, our worst experience there ever. The food was, as always, superb. But the service was simply unacceptable. The waiter tried to upsell at every opportunity. I asked for a glass of Mondavi Cabernet, and was told that they were out of that wine. So I changed my order to a Strong Merlot. I had almost finished the merlot (which I enjoyed) before the food arrived, so I asked for a second glass. That second glass never arrived. However, our bill included the glass of cabernet (which they did not have), and both glasses of merlot (one of which I never received). We caught the manager's attention, and when I explained the situation, he removed all of the wine, and another drink, from our bill. While this good-will gesture was appreciated, it didn't really take much of the stink off of the evening. I would much rather receive everything I ask for and pay full price for it (and nothing else) than to receive a token discount as compensation for substandard service. The waiter returned to our table to apologize for the errors, but nobody at our table was convinced that his heart was really in it. We've had enough wonderful experiences at Lawry's to recognize that this time was an aberration, so we'll go back. But this experience was worth two strikes - another one like it, and we're done.
Lawry's is a dining institution in Los Angeles for a reason. Everything is top notch, from the ambiance, service and of course the famous Prime Rib. It's a place you'll find yourself going back to for years to come.
As usual great Food, Atmosphere and Service. Try to avoid Saturday night though as the bar and waiting area was a zoo.
We have truly enjoyed our family sing experience for nearly 42 years. Ms. Alice was my late fathers favorite server.
Today we have ultra fabulous Ms. Nancy.
Our must have incredible cocktails with dinner for every Southern California visit.
Very nice. Very good service
The server was excellent and the food amazing!
Been coming to Lawrys for over 50 years and it consistently remains on of the best
restaurants. Can't wait for our next visit!
Great food! Will def return!
Our family has been coming to Lawry's for decades. Love the valet service, the food,
Just great prime rib, carved at your table! And excellent service.
Service was slow and the overall experience is sliding... Penny pinching cost cutting (eg cherry tomatoes in salad, crisps and meatballs in the bar area are long gone), and the smart starched uniforms/aprons of the female waitresses are gone too. Charging for side dishes has broadened (creamed corn used to be free), baked potatoes now $11, make Lawrys a somewhat expensive evening. The free mash, bread and Yorkshire pudding - is that next?? And the bill was incorrect as well (one item included for another table).
As a long time Lawrys customer, it’s sad the experience is declining as would seem the volume of customers in the waiting/dining areas. It used to be the ultimate in Prime Rib...
Been a great place for years, it remains one of the best in town
We thoroughly enjoyed the obligatory prime rib with fabulous Yorkshire Pudding. The lobster tail (from Nova Scotia) was perfectly prepared. Creamed spinach was also good. The “Meat and Potatoes” martini is brilliant! Great ambiance. Excellent service from Rocio and the other staff. A delightful flawless evening. Thank you!
As always the service and food was excellent.
Not sure y they always make u wait before seating. M sure u want people to go to bar but some people don’t drink
Group of old friends gathering for meat and martinis. Ain’t no big surprise.
Very personalized service
I would recommend Lawry's any day. I love this place, the food is fabulous and the atmosphere is very classy and comfortable. I wished they had one a little closer to the west side of Los Angeles. I would go there every week if I could.
Thank you for a wonderful evening of my 32nd anniversary with my husband..
We were lucky to get server Danielle. She has a wonderful wry sense of humor and she’s very attentive and beyond-the- menu informative (the whole history of the place for example).
Peter, our server, was OVERLY pushy to upsell. After we said “no”, he just kept pushing. Made us all VERY uncomfortable. Our food was not all served at the same time, odd. And, once our food was served, service disappeared. Disappointing.
The Prime Rib is literally one of the best I've ever had in my life. The food is great, the price is rather steep and the alcohol is outrageously priced. Consequently, I won't be back for quite some time. I went on Sunday night 2/16/2020 to celebrate my birthday and Valentine's with my boyfriend and while the female waitress went above and beyond to make our dinner exceptional, the male waiter (Ben) wasn't nearly as accommodating. Ben pushed several times for us to purchase an alcoholic beverage, preferably the Old Fashioned. After the third attempt my partner and I both ordered one since the waiter vigorously spoke about how incredible the whiskey made the drink. We only took several sips each and we both did not enjoy it, it was overly sweet and didn't meet our expectations. When Ben came to inquire about dessert, he recommended another highly expensive whiskey and we declined on the spot. He took note of our still very full Old Fashions and yet did not ask how we liked the drink. Both my partner and I were pretty upset when he brought the check and saw that both Old Fashioneds totaled to $48. Usually high end establishments do not charge their patron if they are not satisfied with their order. I felt like this waiter was more of a slimy sales person deliberately pushing unwanted alcohol. I'm not sure if employees are rewarded at the end of the night for raking in a high tab, but it certainly felt like the most transactional and undervalued experience I've had at Lawry's. I won't be back anytime soon.
I took my mom out for Valentine’s Day dinner on Sunday February 16, 2020 and it was wonderful. Also everybody was so nice and respectful and we had a good time.
Everything was amazing. Great service.
Excellent food! One out of three waiters was terrific.
Another in particular was very odd. We have never experienced a waiter pushing “whiskey” as opposed to “Would you like a cocktail ?...etc”
Our first time to Lawry's and overall we were so impressed with the food, the customer service, the ambiance...all of it was great!
We had the Valentine’s weekend special. As always, there was plenty of delicious food! This has become one of my annual go to restaurants. Thank you to the Lawry’s team for always making our dining experience so lovely and amazing.
I always love going to Lawry's and they are consistently outstanding in every way except one. I noticed that the last two times we went, they have seated us by the kitchen. This time we asked to be moved.
Great service, delicious Prime Rib and lovely ambiance!
I would recommend Lawry’s to friends, I would just remind them to not tell the waiter where you came from (if they were). The waiter’s attitude towards us changed as soon as we told him where we were from (Bakersfield) The waiter was very pushy and questioned every decision we made. It was nice to talk to the manager, he was very friendly to us and didn’t judge us based on where we came from, when we told him. If we go back to this location I would hope he get better service or do not have the same waiter. They are much less judgemental in Vegas. Also, the service at the Carvery at LA Live nicer service. We ate on Sunday 2/16 @ 3 PM.
Excellent service and food! Our favorite special occasion restaurant!
Always amazing food, service, atmosphere! Just the best!
First, service and ambiance was nice however, I felt as though our waiter was pressuring us into getting more expensive items. As for the food the presentation was quite nice however, the food was not as good as it looked. I got the Lawry's cut and there was almost no flavor to the meat. Don't understand what all the hype is about, would not recommend.
Love the ambience, food was amazing!Service was great! Will definitely return.
The service, attention to detail that Lauren and Patricia provided was first class all the way. Definitely returning and would recommend to anyone.
This was a great experience. We had a wonderful time and got the Valentine's special. Great value! Great service!
