Five Crowns brings English charm to Corona Del Mar, CA.
Your meal starts with fresh baked breads. A nice touch of sweet cream butter and sea salt allows you to adjust to your taste. Also, the soft drinks are served old-school in glass bottles.
White Corn Chowder is topped with Dungeness crab and a lemon verbena drizzle. This soup is light and refreshing. The corn is sweet and creamy. The Dungeness crab adds a bit of luxury. The lemon verbena adds a hint of lemon whose subtle flavor helps entwine all of the flavors together. Thumbs up, way up!
Mary Alice's Pride Salad is topped with toasted pistachios, sheep
When it has to be perfect!. My husband and I have been going to The Five Crowns since my Senior Prom. Since that night, we have always spent every anniversary there (even when we celebrate out of town, we make it a point to go as soon as we get back). This July 1 we will be celebrating out 30th wedding anniversary--and we will be sure to spend an evening there. We celebrate as many occasions as we can: birthdays, anniversaries, our daughter's engagement --we've even thrown baby showers at the Five Crowns. It's a real tradition for us. All I can say is BRAVO! WE have NEVER, not once, not ever, been dissappointed. The food is always above par, and service impeccable. The clientel has never once, in thirty years, made us uncomfortable in any way. We love this place, alway recommend it, and hope to spend many a more wonderful evening there.
Traumatic Experience. Yes, the food & the service was very good, but my family & I will never go there again because of the snotty/snobby clientele. When I made the reservations on-line, I specified that a 13-month old baby would be with our party & when we arrived, they even had a high chair prepared. The manager came to us & told us to keep it down (heck, how could we tell that to a 13-month old???). Then, after we were 3/4 done with our meal, the complaining aged man came to our table & told us that our baby ruined his & his wife's 2-hour brunch & that we should not have taken our baby to a place like that. To top that, the wife starting using the "f..." word to the others around their table (is that CLASS or what???) We chose not to make a scene so we just left (& never to go back).
Editorial Review. Dine on award-winning prime rib, seafood, and other beef and poultry entrees in this charming replica of one of England's oldest country inns.
Not for small children. Another customer approached our table to complain about my 13-month-old child. I was appauled because this never happened before, and the noise level in the restaurant was already loud. Our table thought this man was joking, but he was a real snob. It was my first and last time to dine there. The food was good, but not worth it.
GREAT FOOD. The chocolate souffle was amazing, and the service was great. Ms. Powers was very nice to us. My surf&turf was really good.
Great prime rib!. Part of the Lawry's family, so the prime rib is fantastic.... Especially if you can't get all the way to LA everytime you'd like to! Be sure to dry the creamed horseradish, it is to die for!
BEST PRIME RIB AROUND!!!. Go to this place around Christmas time for the best atmosphere. The prime rib isn't better anywhere. This restaurant is my favorite place to take my family during the holidays. It's classy with excellent service.
OK Service, Average Food. My Husband and I went for my Birthday last week and were surprised by the low quality of the Prime Rib. This place has gone downhill. The PR is better at Mimi's , save your $. The Salad with the creamy dressing was good.
great dinner!. We had a great dinner here and our server, Ms. Glass was also very nice. Out of all the Lawry's restaurants in LA, this was the best in food and ambience. we sat in the atrium room and it was very nice, would love to come during the day to see what it is like. We would definitely come here again. Since it was everyone's first time at the Five Crowns, our server gave us complimentary caffe lattes w/or w/o alcohol. The latte was very smooth and tasted great! Street parking is available or you can valet across the street for $4.50.
