Always a great evening!
Ordered the DineLA 2018 deal,
Prime Rib (California Cut) with Lobster Tail and comes with Spinning Salad and dessert $49

Everything from food to service was as expected from Lawry’s, another great evening.

First off, Michelle is the best waitress/entertainer(spinning bowl show)/ great advisor for wine/random Lawry trivia person ever !!!! I love this place! Thank you Ishmael for being the best chef there and being so nice in answering my questions and how you take great passion in what you do and it shows, that goes for both him and Michelle! ❤️❤️ I love the food but the people there just make it that much better gives you a “I just had my moms cooking” feel ❤️❤️

Lawry's has always given us a consistently satisfying meal. We did the DineLA menu with prime rib and lobster. We upgraded one of the prime rib from the California cut (6 oz) to the Lawry's cut (10 oz). Highly recommend the prime rib and creamed corn. Spinning salad is classic, and our waitstaff was amazingly attentive and accommodating. As always, a bit crowded and hard to get reservation on weekends at dinner time, but worth it.

Excellent fine dining at Lawry’s Beverly Hills. Our service was excellent and the prime rib, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, creamed corn and spinach are the best. We love their coffees and drinks. The spinning salad bowls are refreshing and a great spectacle. The very Professional Cravers insure you receive the best cut at just the right doneness. Enjoy the carving carts, they are as awesome as the Servers and Carvers. Go for special occasions. They also have DineLA specials. The prime rib bones are the most delicious. So order a Diamond Jim or Beef Bowl Cut to insure you can take a bone home. Sourdough bread is a perfect way to compliment the superb dinner that only Lawrys can provide to we Foodies.

Service was excellent. However, when dining at a restaurant with the words "Prime Rib" in the title, one would expect an exceptional piece of prime rib. Truly, this was just awful. The meat was so tender (which typically is a positive) that we could essentially cut it with a fork--no knife necessary. If you're not a carnivore you know that no beef is naturally that tender. So, of course it was soaked in some form of tenderizer, which also removed all the natural flavors. Then, in an apparent effort to replace the flavor, they smothered the prime rib with a gravy. Foodies know that you don't use gravy on delicious prime rib...you use au jus. But, not at this Prime Rib specialty restaurant. They use a chemical flavored gravy. Likely that is to disguise the fact that the tenderizer removed all the flavor. It didn't work. We used to love Lawrys. We use their seasoning at home daily--we use the seasoning on just about everything savory that we cook. It is so incredibly disappointing for this to have happened to what used to be amazing.

On the bright side, our waiter was wonderful. He seemed to sense our disappointment and he indirectly apologized for the food. He did give us a special dessert because we were there to celebrate our anniversary.

Lawrys, here's an idea....age your beef so you can serve delicious prime rib (as your name suggests). Dump the chemical-laden gravy and serve with au jus. It's really quite easy to make a delicious prime rib. You actually need to work to make it this bad.

We’ve been to Lawry’s many, many times and we are VIP members - our experience last night was unlike any other. Our waitress was rude, and even told my husband to stop eating if he had an issue with his meal. He wasn’t even eating! He was cutting his meat (which was mostly fat) to look at it while she was standing there. Later in the evening, my husband had to step away from the table for a moment. That was when the table side ice cream sundaes came - and we were there to celebrate my husband’s birthday! The waitress was clearly annoyed when I asked her not to just leave his dessert waiting on the table for him. She snapped “what would you like me to do?” So I asked her to put it back in the freezer until he returned. Instead of doing that, I watched as she took the cart and pushed it against a wall. When we asked for the bill to be split, she made sure to write the original price of the bill on each check and circle it, in hopes of trying to get her tip doubled. I’ve never written a negative review about Lawrys before. But last night was an expensive disappointment between the meat that was mostly fat on all of our plates, and the waitress who clearly didn’t want to be at work. We will have to seriously rethink before we go back again. - side note... they discontinued the meatballs in the bar area With was a bummer because they were so good! Now they only will serve chips, and you have to request them.

Definitely a well worth restaurant. You get the best bang for your buck! I had a reservation here for 7:30 on a Saturday evening and was quickly seated within 10 minutes. I love that they had side by side booth seating for party of 2s! Since it was our first time, the waiter ran down the menu/process with us, which was very helpful since they don't take your order unless you wanted to add a side dish. For the food, they will push a cart to your table and personally serve you what you want right in front of you. They offer different types of meat cuts for various appetites! The meats ran from $40-$60, but it includes salad, mashed potato, and yorkshire pudding. You can also choose how well you want your meat and it was soooo tender and juicy. Overall, would definitely come here again!!

I expected to be dining in a fine steakhouse, but found myself in a Disneyland for beef. It was disappointing, to say the least. The lobby was crowded and hectic, the hostesses were abrupt and harried, and they called people to be seated by a microphone broadcast. The service was "fine," the prime rib was good, but not great, and they definitely gave the hint that it was time for us to leave after 1.25 hours in total, from sit down to exit. The noise level was quite high. All in all, not an enjoyable experience.
