Went here for Dine LA. They had an 8oz slice of prime rib with a lobster tail, a choice of dessert for $45. Pretty good deal. As always, prime rib was wonderful and the lobster tail was delicious. I was asked 3 times whether I was still working on my plate which gave me the feeling of being rushed. The... More

Atmosphere of this restaurant just makes you order the prime rib! Cut and served at the table from what looked like a cart from Buck Rogers Spaceship! Tender, juicy, and very generous cut!

Can't fault a nice prime rib with mash and spinach. Pudding and trimmings. Nice staff. Good wine. Yes you pay but was worth it and would come back. All in you plate as soon as you like so if ur hungry it's good.

We had the pleasure of being invited to Lawry's for dinner. Entering the restaurants is like a step back in time to Old Hollywood fine dining. If you love Prime Rib you must go as no one does it better. The side cart where they carve from is something in itself. I also liked that we could order very fine... More

Pricey, but fabulous prime rib! Classy atmosphere, make sure you have a reservation. Valet parking and really pricey, but when you crave prime rib, this is the place to go!

This was one of my dad's favorite restaurants and I finally got to try it. You will definitely want to make reservations; you can do this by phone or online. It is not just an excellent meal but a wonderful dining experience. The staff is very attentive and the food incredible.

I will never forget the first time I had dinner at Lawry's in it's former home just down the street from the current location. I'll confess I love "old School" dining establishments and from the minute I walked in it felt like "Old Hollywood" and I mean that in the most positive way. More than half of the seating are...

Look, the restaurant's name is grammatically incorrect ("The Prime Rib"? What does that even mean?) but they can get away with it. You know why? Because they seriously make an absolutely LEGENDARY Prime Rib. That's why. There's something delightfully tacky about the place, the ambiance of which is "old american eatery" meets "steakhouse" with some 70's charm thrown into the... More

While it wasn't a terrible meal at all, it certainly didn't warrant all the fuss or the price. It was bland at best. Not inedible but nothing to write home about either. I would not bother going here again.
