My husband and I had our wedding in the beginning of December. It was small, with only 30 guests in attendance, but it was gorgeous and I would not have done it any other way! Since our guest count was so small, we knew that we wanted to make things special with great food, and quite frankly Lawry's did not dissapoint. I had never eaten at Lawry's before but my husband and both our familes had. To say that the food was amazing really does not even give it justice. The tasting was such a fun experience. The appetizers that we chose from were unbelievable, we still cannot get that tuna tar tar in a wonton out of our heads! The tuscan chicken and soy honey glazed salmon were also delicious! At the reception, both my husband and I got the prime rib and also shared a plate of the soy honey glazed salmon. So yummy!Sent on 02/13/2012
Since our wedding was in December, we were very fortunate to not have to do much decorating of the main dining room. During the holidays, the restaurant is decorated in Christmas lights, pointsettias, and a gorgeous tree is displayed. So all we did to make our reception a bit more special was just to add red roses and tulips to each table. But honestly, Lawry's was so lenient with the decor, I could have used anything to make the tables more special. Including open candles.
The level of service that you get when you book an event with Lawry's is so great. Ellen was so amazing to work with. She was alway accessible, even on her off days she managed to still reply back to our questions and her responses were always accomodating. She is the ideal coordinator to work with. She has a level of professionalism and calmness that is so needed when planning a wedding. Her assistant and the servers were also a pleasure to work with. Everyone was so friendly and happy to work with us.
I highly recommend having your reception at Lawry's. You will be in good hands and rest assured that your guests will LOVE the food! We really had no limitations when it came to our requests and it was so easy for our outside vendors to access the restaurant the day of the wedding. Never in our minds did we feel that we were not taken care of or that something was going to go wrong. With Ellen's expertise all your bases are covered so that all you need to do is enjoy the day.
Also, if I may recommed, if you want to splurge, the Lawry's monogrammed seasoning favors are great! All our guests still tell us how much they love our wedding favors.

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!

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".
