Description: 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.

“Really good prime rib”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went to Lawry's for my husband's birthday. The prime rib is very good and the dinner comes with mashed potatoes. It would have been rated excellent but the food was not hot enough for us. It was warm but not hot. We always go to Lawry's for our birthday dinner and will definitely return. Next time I will be sure to ask the server to make sure the food is very hot. The service is always excellent.

“Huge delicious prime rib I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We went there for a late restaurant week deal- we loved it, the rib is tender and huge even I ordered well-done (yes I know it's a crime to order well done steaks but I can't bare to see blood in the animal meat especially from a cow).
We also had great service and how they display the rib in the huge container was amazing to observe. They gave us at least 18 oz rib, the salad was fresh and the desert was wonderful.

“Best roast beef dinner anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

It's always wonderful to go to Lawry's. The roast beef, which is sliced at your table according to your order (small to huge cuts, rare to well done), the unbelievable Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, and green salad with a great house dressing, are all fantastic. Service is extra special, and everyone is made to feel like a valued guest. There's no need to order any extras, but they do have them if you want them. Other dinners are available as well. Lawry's is perfect for any special occasion.

“Overrated! Go to the Stinking Rose across the Street”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

My first (and last) experience at Lawry's was poor at best. Although we had reservations, we still waited a 1.5 hours to be seated. The atmosphere was very crowded and I found it quite annoying that some patrons were snobbish. The "spinning salad" was basically a salad bowl spinning in another bowl of ice and the salad dressing poured 4 feet above it. The theatrics was not impressive. The creamed corn was out of a can. I will never go back to this place again. The Stinking Rose across La Cienega was far better.

“Lawry's is just a classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Going back to Lawry's in Beverly Hills is always as special as the first time you went .... service is superb.. and if you like prime rib.. this is the place to go. Buttered peas are awesome.. horseradish ... mashed potatoes.. it really doesn't get much better for prime rib lovers. If there is a place that can do the whole thing better, I want to know.. as I'd love to go..
