Lawry's is always the best prime rib spot in town. Service was off - it appeared that they were short-handed at lunch in the dining room. What else is new these days? Roxanne held things down well enough to get those delicious meals served.

Ridiculous, I went in for an anniversary dinner and when I asked for boxes to take home leftovers my waiter insisted on boxing them up himself, I’m not a terribly picky person so when he forgot my pudding, horse radish and prime rib sauce I let it go but he didn’t put in my entire half entree! Not only that but when I emailed and called to receive what I rightfully paid for the restaurant manager was less than enthusiastic about compensating me not only for my trouble but for the money I spent! I tipped my server well over 20% thinking it was a good investment and now I realize how foolish it was to expect quality service from such a half-baked performance. I didn’t even ask for more than what I originally paid for, simply half the lamb order I originally ordered and even then when I got home to finally enjoy it with my other leftovers it was undercooked!!! I’m entirely fed up and I don’t think I’ll ever be returning or recommending this place to anybody in the future.

We came for the last night of Restaurant Week. Great selections on this menu, and we ordered off the regular menu (escargot, bacon-wrapped dates). These apps were really good. I recommend. The spinning bowl salad was a disappointment, not sure how fresh the lettuce was and could hardly taste the dressing. AND, we were two bites into our apps when the salad appeared...so timing was not good early on. We asked the waiter to please space out the rest of our meal and he did. Shrimp in butter sauce that accompanied our steaks was good. Three filet mignon and one 6 oz cut of prime rib. Filet's were tasty but a tad on the salty side but cooked right and nice and thick. The prime rib was somewhat tough and cold. The whipped horsey sauce was awesome but didn't melt on the cold meat. Mashed potatoes were good, could have used more gravy. Just "okay" small/tiny side of creamed spinach that perhaps had sat too long in the cart. Au gratin's were good. The cart: not gleaming, and only one in the entire dining room, opened and closed (right by our table is how I know) so much that it's no wonder the prime rib was cold. We'll try again here but maybe for lunch or brunch. Also, Gabriel the water guy/buser was awesome. The hostess seemed irritated in general, moreso when we asked to not be seated right by the kitchen door, when the restaurant at that point wasn't even half full. The booth we moved to was great. Good wine list, reasonably priced.

Food was superior - prime rib cooked to perfection - salad was cool, crisp and colorful....unlimited wine and beverage list....sides were fabulous and deserts to die for....SERVICE was SUpernatural,,,,MELINDA (our server) was incredible -she catered to our every dining want and need...and she did so with a warmth and charm that is rarely seen today. Nancy (The Manager) stopped by our table several times to chat and make sure all was good. She always makes us feel like a part of the Lawry's family. It's a dining experience we treasure. keeps us coming back each month since 1988 !!!!!

Go often to lawrys. This time not up to usual standards.

Worst service. Waitress too busy with large table next to us so didn’t give any service.

Asked for prime rib med rear got well done. Was also very tough. waitress didn’t care.

Had VIP account. Waitress said she checked. Found out when returned home had two awards we could have used.


May be a while before go back.

Nice waitress, nice staff.
Salad was best part. Potato not hot and served late, my husband liked the food but I didn’t think it was very good.The bill was incorrect and then incorrect again. By the time we left it was a little awkward.
Honestly, we will not be returning. It just wasn’t a good experience.

My wife and I almost always enjoy dinner here for our anniversary. The attention is wonderful , the food spectacular and the ambiance is especially delightful for an old romantic like me . So go enjoy a quality dining experience without all the noise of the world in a soft environment where you can enjoy the company of the special people in your life.

Loved the ambiance. We had a new waitress, she forgot some things we asked for (like lemon slices for our water), we asked several times however, we never received them. No one came to brush crumbs from the table as we're accustomed to in fine steak dining establishments. Also, I was VERY disappointed with the lamb chops I ordered. Very small and hardly any meat on them, mostly fat. Perry's Lamb chops are FAR SUPERIOR than these I ordered here AND you get a bigger portion of chops!
The smoked prime ribeye steak that my husband ordered was the best ribeye steak I've ever tasted!
I should've ordered that instead of the lamb chops!
The prime rib our friends ordered was also fantastic.
So, we'll definitely be dining at Lawry's in the future, and the next time, I'll have that smoked prime ribeye!

We went for restaurant week. We were seated and recognized by the waitress. She came back and took our drink order and did not return with drinks for over ten minutes. We tried to flag someone down, but could not get anyone's attention. Our waitress was on the floor, but did not acknowledge us. We finally got someone from their staff to inquire about our drinks. A few minutes later the drinks arrived with no explanation. We received our food order two orders at a time. My daughter and I got our food and my husband and daughter's boyfriend got their food a good five to six minutes after we had our food. Again, no apologies. We chalked it up to a bad night and don't plan on returning.
