Not worth the money of plain salad and prime rib to have bread placed right on top with no follow up or meal replacement. No exceptions to their gluten filled sauces and sides attached to the steaks. If you want plain steak and dry mashed potatoes with an extreme price tag ... go for it - it’s a beautiful Christmas location & carolers were amazing !

Servers are quite knowledgeable here. Enjoyed salad w/oil & vinegar, buttery mashed potatoes (no gravy), vegetable and my prime rib (without any sauce). Everything was cooked to perfection. Lovely, elegant restaurant for celebrating any special occasion.

Famous for their prime rib and spinning salad, but not able to have either. There is gluten in the salad dressing and it's the only one they serve. Gluten in both horseradish sauces and the auju, so no prime rib. Everything is made ahead, so they are not able to make any accommodations.

I had a very different experience than the previous review but I would also not recommend this place. The do have a separate gluten free menu. Everyone knew about it. The sever checked on all the options I chose. My problem was that my food did not taste good by the time they took away everything I couldn't eat. No gravy, sauces, no spices, no jus. This is an expensive restaurant and it is no longer worth it once you get your meal. I was very disappointed. So if you have to go hear with a group, I believe you can be safe. It just will be boring and not worth the price tag.

A truly terrible and frightening place for a celiac. My father made us a reservation and went in person to the restaurant to ask about whether a celiac could dine there. He was told that there would be no problem and that a note would be made for the server. When we arrived I clearly explained my allergy to the server and we went through each of the dishes I ordered. Then, after we had finished the meal, the waitress mentioned that "whoops, the au jus had gluten, but I think just a little bit." When we spoke to the manager she said that we should have been given a gluten free menu, but apparently no one else knows about it, not the front of house staff, not the wait staff. Completely disgraceful, especially for a restaurant that purports to be high end and ESPECIALLY for a place that reassured is multiple times that they were knowledgeable and gluten free friendly.

Wow!! @lawrystheprimeriblasvegas knows how to perfectly do a fully GF night out!

Typically my family does Prime Rib for Christmas. Because of life and then the pandemic, I haven’t been home for the holidays in a couple years. I’ve been craving prime rib, but due to covid all the restaurants in L.A. have been closed to in person dining and there’s just something about nostalgia that scares me away from attempting it at home. When you really love childhood memories of a fav food and attempt to make it and it’s not as good as you remember, it’s a letdown.

While in Vegas, they’d reopened in person dining. Emboldened by Lawry’s safe in dining protocols, we headed to them for dinner, for our first, real, in person dining in a year.

Each booth was surrounded by glass safety zones, people dining in were seated a good 30+ feet apart.

Each dish that came out was more delicious than the last. We started w oysters, each had a salad, I had prime rib, my friend had filet mignon, we each had augratin potatoes, shared a bottle of Malbec, and finished it all with the flourless chocolate cake! All tested safe and GF. Our waiter, the kitchen staff and chef were all VERY attentive to our celiac needs. It was my first trip to Lawry’s but it certainly won’t be my last!

If you’re in Vegas, craving some good GF filet or prime rib, w all the fixings, I’d highly recommend skipping the strip and heading over to Lawry’s!

They have a great allergen list and were very helpful. The prime rib salad with horseradish dressing was amazing.
