“Seafood too”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Not only do they have beef, they also have seafood. The salmon dish was perfect for those that don't eat beef.

The salmon was moist on a bed of couscous with steamed carrots and beans that were crisp. I believe they also have a vegetable platter for true vegetarians.

The atmosphere was lively...the only drawback was we were in a backroom that had two noisy parties. We could not hear ourselves converse. I recommend that you suggest the main dining room when you make reservations.

Other than that, the food is good and tasty.

“Totally Untrendy, Totally Delicious”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

When I first read about Lawry's in Beverly Hills, I really didn't know what to think. Should I believe people who said that their meals were good when what they were eating was just about the least culinarily adventurous fare one could get? We are talking about prime rib, mashed potatoes with gravy, Yorkshire pudding, and creamed corn. There is little else to choose from, save for a ribeye steak, a vegetarian option (really), and some other sides. But I have to say, the food was delicious, and the service extremely friendly. My rare prime rib was gorgeously tender and juicy, and my creamed corn was crunchy and full of corn flavor. The salad appetizer was a very old fashioned medley of vegetables with a sweet-tart dressing that I swear had ketchup in it. The August special was a very good deal, featuring a bottle of wine, the salad, prime rib, sides, and dessert for $99 a couple. Only the dessert, a mediocre trifle, seemed like an afterthought. The dining room feels like a generic, high-ceilinged hotel ballroom with murals and tapestries decorating the large walls. And the female servers are made to wear truly silly costumes that do nothing to add to the appeal of the place. But I would highly recommend this place for the simple, delicious beef.

This would have been the best meal ever. But the cream spinach was not so good. Wasn't bad just no flavor. Mashed Potatoes also not bad but not what I would expect from a place like this. My wife had the cream corn with her meal. That was GREAT cream corn.

Service was great.
Valet staff is super nice.

The steak was way better than Cuts at the Beverly Wilshire.
