We had our wedding here this past Sunday. I can't imagine a better venue for a wedding. We have had nothing but raves from our friends and family who attended.Sent on 11/21/2013
We contacted Ellen, the event coordinator, in July. We met with her went over all of the details as far as options for both food and drink, as well as all the other information that is necessary when throwing a big event. Ellen is a true pro - very responsive and helpful. She did everything she could to accommodate us through every step of the planning process.
At the end of August, we went for a private tasting. We choose 8 appetizers and several entree choices to narrow down our menu. They were nice enough to allow my mother-in-law to come along. The samples were plentiful and we were able to choose 4 appetizers and a chicken, fish and vegetarian entree choice.
Lawry's does not provide wedding cakes, and because of this, they do not charge a cake cutting fee. In addition, they served ice cream and berries with the cake, which was a great touch.
We were able to decorate the venue to our liking. I loved having this flexibility. I gave my vision to the coordinator who executed it perfectly.
Lawry's also has the option of valet parking when holding an event of this nature. It was a nice touch for our guests.
Our ceremony started at approximately, 10:30am, followed by a cocktail hour with appetizers. We were not with our guests during this time, but we heard the appetizers were plentiful. After this, we launched into a lunch service, with the famous salad and sourdough bread. followed by the entrees. The food was all very delicious, as you would expect from Lawry's.
The event ended at 3pm, and the staff quickly began getting the space ready for dinner service which starts at 4pm. The time went so quickly!
I can't recommend this place enough for a venue to hold a wedding. It is elegant, spacious and very reasonably priced!

Lawry's has always been one of our favorite restaurants, so making the decision to get married there was an easy one... especially after reading all of the glowing reviews. The events manager, Ellen, and her assistant, Elisabeth, were helpful with the entire wedding planning process, quickly responded to all of our emails and gave great suggestions. They were also very accommodating with all of our requests... we asked to use their easel, their projector screen and their wireless mixer for the ceremony in the Oak room.Sent on 11/08/2013
Everything went like a charm on the big day. So many of our guests raved about the exceptional service the Lawry's staff provided and how delicious the food was. We had two types of hors d'hoeurves (Chicken Yakitori and Grilled Shrimp skewers) served during the time between the end of the ceremony and the start of reception. For the main courses, we offered the Prime Rib, Grilled Chicken with Orange Tarragon sauce and the Grilled Salmon with soy honey sauce.
The overall cost of our wedding was very reasonable. It was an additional $350 for the ceremony setup, but it's all worth it, because this made our wedding a one-stop shop, which is exactly what we wanted for our guests. The less driving they have to do, the more time they have to enjoy their day with us.
Overall, an A++ to Ellen and the Lawry's staff. Our wedding may be over, but we will surely be heading back there for dinner!
Lawry's The Prime Rib's reply:Hi Justine and Jeff,
We love officiating at Lawry's! It's such a great location (right in the heart of Hollywood) and has a very special feel to it. It is warm, and unique, classy and elegant! Ellen and her team are fantastic to work with. Can't wait to go back!
One of my favorite venues. Lawry's is charming, personal, and the staff are the best to work with.
You may not think of Lawry's when your picking your location, but you should. It's a beautiful location. Not your typical "banquet room".
