Tonight we felt like prime rib and as most people in Los Angeles, we believed Lawry's to be "le top". We believed wrong: What we had not realized prior to our dinning experience this evening was how cheap we would feel when we left. The quality of food not much better than a Chili's or Outback, the service syrupy sweet, and the prices ridiculous.
EVERYTHING costs extra. Even the baked potato, a standard prime rib side, is not included in the set price!
In a world where fads come and go, we had hoped Lawry's would maintain the same quality and service we had remembered from our youth. Much to our disappointment, this place is barely a notch above fast food. In summation,my grandfather's cousin Cliford Figel, was married to the daughter of Mr.Frank, one of the original owners.Clifford worked his way up to the president of the Board of Directors of Lawrys. Uncle Clifford is spinning in his grave tonight at the demise of a once delicious establishment.
