Prime Rib
You'll know the moment you arrive that Lawry's The Prime Rib is an extraordinary restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef are aged 21 days, rock salt-roasted to perfection then carved to order tableside from shining silver carts. The famous Spinning Bowl Salad, whipped cream horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and warm hospitality complete the experience that has landed Lawry's on countless "10 Best" lists and made it a dining legend since 1938.

Not for lunch. Disappointed having to go through a line. Would prefer having the meal brought to the table. Would be better if lunch was similar to dinner

Everything was great! Customer service was excellent, food was amazing! Only was reason I gave a 3 star for service and 4 star overall was because my reservation was at 8:15pm. I was seated til almost an hour later. My reality of a reservation is to be seated ASAP regardless of how busy it is especially after planning for this day months in advance. But overall this place lived up to my expectations and I would love to come back in the future.

it was valentines day so things were hectic. had to wait for reservation, but not over 15 minutes. service was ok, based on server being over extended due to a number of tables, again it was valentines day. food was good, beef probably better than salmon as we ordered from menu.

Valentine’s night dinner;
I can’t really say the restaurant was good nor bad, but here’s my take on it:

The bar service was really good!!
The overall service was “stuffy”, it came across as Pretentious.
The atmosphere was was outdated and rested on the concept of the meal verses an inviting place to have an above average dinning experience.
The clientele, mostly 65+++
The food;
Wife and I ordered the same cut but got two completely different ones
Prime Rib served at best, room temp.
Opt for the Crab add on, it was from a can and already turning
Mashed potatoes are instant
Gravy was processed straight from a can
Overall the meal was not worth the price as it was mostly tasting little more then heat and serve.

A novelty restaurant that you go to once.....

Romantic atmosphere and just the right amount of attention from our server, Bradley. He was very attentive to our needs, making suggestions and complimenting our choices. The prime rib and steak were excellent as was the biggest piece of chocolate cake you have seen.

You will see other reviews from me on this place and immediately know that is one of our favorites. In this occasion however, I wanted to give special kudos to our server Mrs. Roxanne (Miller?), an experienced server of 25 years that proved what being a professional in a server position should be and its beginning to disappear from restaurants. Not only was she super efficient and courteous, she knew the history of her restaurant and was able to give interesting and entertaining anecdotes when we asked questions. This is the kind of experience that you can only get at high quality places and one of the many reasons why we keep coming back.

We will probably not dine here again. We had Caesar Salad and they used the wrong end of the Romaine! Not one heart, but just leaves and some of them were brown. We also had Escargot and there was little to no garlic in the butter sauce. While we enjoyed the Prime Rib, the piece we each had was not worth $41. Our bill with tip came to $221 (we had a $60 bottle on wine) and was not worth the price.

I was very disappointed Lawry's does not have a dress code or allows unsupervised young adults to have dinner. A group of seven young men, ages from 13 to 17, were allow to have dinner without any adult supervision. They were seated right next to our table. They were loud and very annoying! The manager tried to control them, but was not successful! We were expecting to have a nice romantic dinner. So much for having an adult dinner at a "classic" restaurant that we enjoyed for special occasions. We fear this group of young men may appear again and spoiled a romantic evening. I doubt we were never go back to Lawry's again.

The food was delicious. It came out in a timely manner, but we were not rushed. We enjoyed our time with each course for my mother's birthday. The waiter was attentive and knowledgable. We sat in a cozy booth that made us feel special and not too cluttered. The dessert was so good as was the after dinner coffee.

We ate at Lawry's spur of the moment on Tuesday night. Our server was Keanon. I can't say enough about this young man. If I had a business where I could hire him, I would. He was extremely personable and attentive, not only with us but all of his tables. I eat out way more than I should and know exemplary service. Keanon was exemplary. I told him I had been disappointed on recent trips to Lawry's ( I am a VIP member). I get the Dallas cut. I remember it used to be two inches thick. It is not anymore. On a previous trip, it was cut so small, my server had the carver cut me another piece. Keanon made sure I got a good cut. It was still smaller than in the past, but better than what I had recently. The quality was back to Lawry's standards as well.

Was in with a guest who has limited mobility. Jonathan, our waiter was really great. Even though it was lunch and the carvery stations were out, he offered to bring our entrees so my guest didn’t have to get up and get their own. Food was wonder. Portion size just right too. Looking forward to going back to this old guard property with its updated flair.

Calamari appetizer was very good and prime rib was excellent. Lobster bisque and steak soup were good but not great. This was our first time at this steakhouse. If you’re craving prime rib, this is the place to go. This was my first time having Yorkshire pudding. It was just okay. One person in our group was visiting from England and he didn’t really care for the Yorkshire pudding. But, he loved the prime rib! Service however was sub par. First waiter seemed new but probably wasn’t and she seemed out of place for an upscale restaurant. Before our meals came out, another waitress came out and announced herself as our new waiter. No explanation was given and she was not particularly friendly. All of our orders arrived accurately and on time. We had an 8pm reservation and the restaurant was mostly full when we arrived, but by 9pm only one other party was still dining. Decor was a bit dated but that is typical for steakhouses.

Normally we have great prime ribs but this time it was not up to Lawry's standard. The prime rib was thinner cut and not tender or tasty. My guest steak was cold and had to be send back.
