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).

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.

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”
Whiskey anyone?
Not friendly.

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.

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.

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.

Food fantastic! Service so so. Waiter too busy for a lot of attention. Biggest complaint was being 7 of us seated at large round table. No one could really hear anything due to noise level. Absolutely could not move once seated. Back to back with other diners. Guy behind me kept asking me to move my chair but there was nowhere to go! Like being seated in “coach” on an airplane. This was disappointing for a wonderful meal. Seating and noise level was too uncomfortable!

We go to Lawry’s as a birthday tradition. This time we were in very crowded room & the servers paid very little attention to our table of 10. At one point after desperately trying to hail a server, I went into the kitchen to ask for silverware! The service was also thoughtless. We had a small child whose food was brought 10 minutes after the adults. Disappointing.

The meal was delicious as always. The valentine day special for two was the perfect size and had a wonderful addition of lump crab and avocado salad. The dessert was also delicious.

Service at the bar was terrible. Had to go to the bar and order our drinks because waitress was gone for long periods of time. Had to get up again to ask for chips and water. Service in the dining room was good. You guys charge now for extra salad is ridiculous. It seems like you guys are nickel and dimming your customers and that sucks. You got rid of the meatballs because “some people” take advantage and the chips are only available if you ask for it because “some people” take advantage of them, now the extra large portion Salad is gone Too because “some people” take advantage. Are you going to charge for your bread too? I’m sure “some people” ask for extra bread and that’s taking advantage isn’t it??! You guys are slowly going downhill just like every other popular restaurant that start charging customers for every little thing. And yes, the “some people” taking advantage quote was said to us on three different occasions by the Waite staff. Come on Lawrys, stop the madness, charging $55 for a hunk of beef is good enough. you aren’t my happy place anymore!!!

Started by seating us all the way in the back. Then the waitress couldn't split our bill for us. Then when we finally paid we were overcharged. Food was good service not.

Was our 26th wedding Anniversary and took our 2 girls. A good sized piece of plastic was in my wife’s mashed potatoes and she bit into it. I showed waiter and manager. They only said sorry. Adam was a very nice waiter though.

Lawry's doesn't need my review on OpenTable. They've been a family favorite of ours since the 1950s and they've been a Beverly Hills institution for nearly a century. They are, by far, the best prime rib restaurant in the world.

My fiancé and I came to Lawry’s to celebrate our recent engagement. EVERYTHING was super! But what really made it an A+ experience was that our server Izabella remembered from the beginning of our meal that my fiancé didn’t drink alcohol, so we were pleasantly surprised that at the end of our meal for a celebratory toast she brought brought champagne for me and a non-alcoholic cider options for my fiancé — without us asking! This small gesture really meant a lot to us. Thank you so much for a memorable evening! :)

Everything was ok Except the wine part. In the menu it says 2016 bottle, but what was served to us was a 2017 bottle. When i asked the waiter about it, i was told that the one on the menu is a “misprint”. Really?

I’ve gone to Lawry’s in BH since I was 5 years old.
This is the first time I was unhappy with the waitress. She was very unfriendly. She was short with all her answers and had no personality. Unfortunately she was the topic of our dinner conversation! We ask the waitress if she could take a picture of us and she said she was busy. She would be back later! We wanted the picture with our food in front of us. Luckily the bartender with the man bun was walking by and saw we were disappointed in the waitress’ response. He offered to take our picture. He was very sweet . We couldn’t wait to get our check. I will continue to take my family and friends to Lawry’s because it’s a big part of our celebrations. I definitely will speak up next time we have an unprofessional waitress! The servers, bus personal we’re very kind and professional .

The tables were literally 3 inches away from each other, the waiter "Rosio" was extremely rude. She asked me if we had been here before, I said my wife has been here before not me, to which she replied " you don'tgo out much? Does She not take you places?" In a very judgemental tone. I ordered a salmon thing and my salmon was dry and overcooked. When I said "No" for alcohol, rosana was not very happy with it. The whole place was extremely noisy and the only thing I liked was my scaloped potatoes cooked very well and tasted amazing. The other server Carol was very polite, pleasant and happy to take care of us.

The whole experience just made my valentine's day experience bad.
