The food was cold/ lukewarm. If it had been hot it would have been great. We had to wait 35 min to be seated. Our reservation was at 4:00 and we were seated at 4:35.

We arrived for Easter lunch reservation at 1 pm, however, we waited nearly 30 minutes to be seated. It took another hour to receive our meal. Our servers were either too busy or just inattentive to our needs. Bus boy was the only one who seemed to notice our table. Management stopped by to apologize for the delay but never offered any compensation for our time. We mentioned a free dessert would make up for the 1.5 hour wait to receive our plate but nothing was comped so we tipped less... especially since it took another half hour to complete our check.
We’re locals/vip rewards member and have been going here for many and today was by far the worst service received and hope this is an isolated situation. Food was excellent as always!!

I was really happy with our experience this time. We had not had the best experiences the last two times we were there, but this Saturday evening everything was superb - the way it has been over the years. Thank you for proving to me that things have not changed. The food was excellent and the service was even better! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

The Lawry's "experience" never varies: staff that is polite, professional, and well trained, decor that is a throwback--in the best sense--to a time of more formal dining, and, of course, the food--which is always excellent.

We have come to Lawry’s for years for special occasions. Service is always excellent, prime rib superb. (It’s the only thing we ever order, so I can’t comment on the others main courses.) The reason for the downgrade to 4 stars is that the last three times we have gone, at least half of someone’s prime ribs is fat. I understand that fat makes prime rib great, but when half is fat, some accommodation should be made, like a second slice offered to compensate for the inedible waste.

This was my Father’s 80th birthday celebration and his favorite place to celebrate in the past. Miss Thomas our server was fair, no presentation, her head dress was dirty, she had no personality. She did not introduce our carver and then presented a wilted salad, & very rare bloody prime rib instead of pink. The room also was not the main pretty room it was on the side, and the temperature was on the cool side. The dessert -lavender honey ice-cream, was really tasty but the coconut cream pie was poor and mushy. The birthday dessert, strawberry trifel was complimentary, and substandard. When you pay $400 for a meal you want it to be great especially for an 80th birthday. We drove from San Diego and should have stayed home and gone to “Morton’s of Chicago”. My first grand experience at Lawry’s was in the 1970’s, this will be our last trip to Lawry’s. We are very disappointed that the dining experience is inconsistent, and that the charm and great service of your restaurant has deteriorated.

The experience was perfect as was the food and service as usual. We only had one bad experience is the last 40 years when we were seated next to a loud and slight drunk customer.

Other than that, Lawry’s has never failed to live up to my highest expectations!!!

Birthday dinner at Lawry's is always a nice way to celebrate with friends. The menu offers something for everyone -- traditional prime rib with all the accompaniments, steak, fish, vegetarian. We all enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance.

The salad leaves were old
Romaine should have been crisper and younger

Sides should have been served in separate dishes not slopped on plate

Lawry's has been my favorite restaurant since I've been 5 years old (now 64). There's never been a bad meal there. The great thing about it the food tastes just as good as when I started going in 1960. It's the best!

There is no better prime rib in America, period! I love the entire experience at Lawry's and feel that the table side carving is an added perk. I strongly recommend Lawry's especially the terrific Beverly Hills location.

Disappointment

I am a long-time Lawry's patron. Over the years I have been many times, and I know some of the waitstaff and carvers. I love their prime rib! During our last visit, they were promoting dry aged prime rib for an additional charge. The waitress told us about this special item - which was not on the menu. She said that it would be $10 per cut more than the traditional prime rib. We were intrigued and so we each ordered a large steak. It was delicious! However, when the bill came, the cost for the dry aged cuts was nearly 50% higher than the price on the menu! We spoke to the manager, thinking that there had been a mistake. Nope. We told him the price the waitress quoted us, and he said: "She told you that?" No adjustment was offered. The drinks were very expensive and our bill was really high - compared to the countless times we've been there. This may signal a change in management or business model, but it has made me disinclined to return. Very disappointing.

I’ve been going to Lawry's for the past 30+ years to celebrate family festivities, special occasions and holidays. The food is always outstanding. But the new look is simply blah. Sorry but it’s lost it’s charm. Bring back the 18th century portraits and tapestries. And please bring back the original French 75 (the flute glass looked like a cloud of water with a red ball at the bottom and the taste was horrible). The chips and meatballs need to come back also. It was always fun having a drink at the bar, nibbling and engaged in conversation before being seated. I’ll be back though.
