Excellent server. Prime rib wasn't cooked to order. For those that don't want prime rib, not many choices that are not pricey.

Did not like it. You don't get what you pay, with that kind of money you can eat at a better steakhouse. Also the place is old and very old fashioned, the booths had that old dirty look. The drinks were really bad (Neither me or my girlfriend couldn't finish our drinks).

Lawrys is our favorite prime rib restaurant and we spend many special occasions here. Service is consistently friendly. Food quality is always great. We love their prime rib, carved at the table, the spinning salad and the yorkshire pudding smothered in au jus is wonderful.

We chose Lawry’s for our niece’s after wedding vow ceremony dinner. We had a small party of 7 for dinner and had a wonderful time. Lawry’s has always been one of our favourite restaurants and my husband and I were happy to share it with our family who just moved to Texas and had never been.

First off, I eat at Lawry's quite often and for the most part I normally enjoy the food. However, on this trip the food and the service was quite the disappointment. The Rib was tough, barely warm and maybe med rare instead of Rare as request. The mast potatoes and corn again were barely warm. After being seated, the waitress ask about drinks, I request water and Ice Tea and a spoon. I had to asked four times for a spoon over about a ten minute period, she kept forgetting. Overall, not up to Lawry's standards I have for the most part enjoyed since 1972 (starting in LA). Since I was on a business lunch I didn't want to press the waitress or ask for the manager.

It was a nice dinner with a helpful waitress and staff. To food was great except 2 of the Filets were a bit over cooked, but not too bad to send them back. It was a small group to celebrate a good friend’s birthday. They brought out a special light dessert for the birthday boy and wished him a great evening. We migrated to drinks locally.

We frequent Lawry’s 3-4 times a year and usually have a good experience. Not this time. After being seated we waited 15 minutes before we saw our waiter Dustin. He simply seemed to be somewhere else that night since he said the bar was backed up delivering our drinks (which took another 20 mins), he delivered the wrong sides to the table and never put my order of in. So when everyone got their steaks I wasn’t served min until most of the table was almost finished and blamed it on the kitchen. My husband got the diamond cut prime rib. He’s had it before and usually likes it. This time it was fatty and cold. Unfortunate.

Everything was going great until a party of 12 came in and sat in front of our table.
Things changed then-noise level went up and our waitress forgot about us.
We had dessert coming, but after 30 minutes we just left. She did have time to leave
our check. Next time we'll suggest a private space.

Prime rib and salmon dishes cooked to perfection...spinning salad cool, crisp and colorful...unlimited wine and beverage list..sides are superior...deserts to die for...SERVICE is supernatural (starting with KAREN -The Manager - who is ALWAYS so charming and gracious..she always makes us feel like a part of the Lawry's Family) Ms. MILLER , our server, always caters to our every dining want and need (she is the best with Mr. Thompson)..the bus staff is friendly and very efficient. It's a dining experience we treasure. Keeps us coming back each month since 1988 !! We can never get enough of a good thing.

Our server, Brad, was excellent. What a nice guy! Greeted us right away, no rush, there when we needed him, and very efficient. We enjoyed the spinning bowl salad and bread to begin with and then the Prime Rib was excellent as usual. We will ask for him again although we usually ask for Travis but it's good to have more than one server knowing we will always be well taken care of.

Service was the only saving grace on a disappointing meal. My houseguest and I were looking forward to a lovely dinner. Her “medium” filet was practically raw thru and thru and had to be sent back. When it was returned it was over cooked. The au gratin potatoes served with both meals was unattractive on the plate and tasted like gravy over potatoes, certainly not au gratin. The Creme Brûlée was barely chilled and was more soupy than firm. With all the fine steak houses in Dallas, Lawry’s name should not be on the list.

Our service and the ambiance was wonderful. Food was delicious. However, my father and husband asked for their prime rib medium and it was more medium rare like mine. They were both a little disappointed.

We go to Lawry's at least once a year just to celebrate our year and to enjoy some wonderful prime rib. I decided to change it up this year as I have celiac and cannot have the au jus (I truly wish they would change the au jus to gluten free). I opted for the smoked filet cooked medium. I received a medium well, dry and what tasted like a re-fired steak. My au gratin potatoes were warm, also lacking freshness.

No, I did not complain. I ate most the steak and some of the potatoes. The waiter did not notice the large amount of food left, which showed they really were not paying close attention to their customers.

I love Lawry's and we will be back, as I truly hope this was a fluke and not a sign of this great Dallas staple going down hill.

Service was so slow from the start.
Server was not mentally sharp
Dinner salad had to be replaced twice.
Waited 10 to get bread and to get over to get table to greet.

Apiterzisers were Luke warm and nbery sloe arriving.

Both prime rib s were mostly fat and had to be dissected to find the best meat.

Other things were wrong but it was late so we paid and left. And gave an interested internet unearned gratuity. No time for mgr conference.
Never again will we tolerate this service.

Our server LaMarqui was excellent friendly and attentive. Meal started with warm sourdough bread. Good wine list with wide range of choices and prices. Price comparable to similar restaurants but they include a complete meal rather than ala carts as with many similar restaurants. The spin salad prepared at the table with good presentation was delicious and plentiful. Our party of four ordered two filets and two prime rib dinners. All were very good. Only two minor criticisms one filet ordered medium rare was closer to medium but not over cooked to the extent that we needed to send it back. Secondly a.though we both ordered the same cut of prime rib one was on the bone while the other came boneless. We would have preferred to have been given our choice of bone or no bone

I am a usual customer of Lawry’s at Los Angeles. However, our experience in Lawry’s at Dallas was very poor. The Prime rib was not tender at all, the shrimps that came in the
Shrimp cocktail were over cooked and the soup of the day to salty.
We were a party of 5, and we all were very disappointed. The service was very good. Too bad for the food quality.

Lawry's is our favorite go-to for special occasions. The atmosphere is refined, the food is wonderful and the service is always good. We always get the prime rib with yorkshire pudding, and usually the daily souffle. This time we tried coconut banana cream pie and it was amazing.
