    I would love to thank the waiter for his amazing service from beginning to end he chose my partner and Myself meals and paired it with very delicious glasses of wine then he was on top of anything my partner need as it was her day he gave us a phenomenal view of the city and it's beautiful night sky and for the ending he brought us out an anniversary dessert with a candle and two glasses of moscato to pair with the chocolate dessert I really wished I would have remembered his name as the guy needs a raise or a promotion for his superb customer service my name is Wilber Hernandez I hope if my name helps to track him down as I reserved the appointment for dinner

    The maître'd exudes class, the décor is appropriate, the views are spectacular. That is all before the drinks arrive. I had the best daiquiri that I've ever had. Made with fresh lime juice and a perfect amount of alcohol. The oyster Rockefeller are fabulous. I understand the oysters are shucked when you order and the flavor of the "goop" as I like to call it is outstanding. We split a lobster thermidor which was a perfect serving of a dish that is difficult to find and just as difficult to find that is made properly. Even the bread is outstanding. I couldn't recommend this restaurant more. It is terrific and I am a frequent fine diner in Los Angeles proper and around the nation and the world.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and he said that I always aim high. The view was awesome, the food was excellent and the service was great. Just make sure you take a credit card. After dinner we went to the lounge which is one floor down from the restaurant. We enjoyed the rotating lounge. How could you go wrong with all the class at the Bonaventure. My boyfriend had a great time which was the most important thing. Thank you to the Bonaventure LA Prime and the Lounge.

    Overall, great experience. However, the only pitfall is the time slot from open table was misleading. As it was stated that 1,000pt was available at 5pm, while the restaurant opens at 5:30pm. Please correct that on opentable.

    Starting with the elevator ride to the 35th floor this experience was incredible!! We were seated immediately for our Anniversary And the service was great!! We had escargot and pork belly for appetizers, both highly recommended!! For entrees my wife had the 8 oz filet medium and it was perfect as was my 22 oz Delmonico bone-in ribeye at medium rare!! We split the creamed spinach and brussle sprouts for sides and the flavors were wonderful!! The restaurant brought us a dessert to share which had happy anniversary written on it!! Cost was what you would expect from a fancy steak house in DTLA!! Our server misplaced our valet ticket but was sure to contact them and make sure we got our complimentary valet!! Overall a spectacular experience!!

    Overlooking the DTLA skyline I surprise my GF on her bday with an engagement ring at the rest. The hostess Adriana played a crucial part in making this night a memorable moment for us. she was very helpful and came up with an excellent suggestion for the proposal. Our waitress Norma was the best. She was the perfect waiter for occasion. Her timing was perfect. After the bday cake on Q out came the ring making her wish come true! food was excellent we started with the chilled oysters. Entree both had filet Mignon 8oz and 10oz both cooked to perfection medium rare. Our sides Asparagus and mash potatoes were delicious. The people we had the pleasure of meeting made our experience memorable and one we will never forget. Norma and Adriana thx u

    I had heard that LA Prime was a "good" restaurant, and I had guests in from out of town, staying at the Bonaventure, so I thought, what the heck.. I was extremely pleased, as were my guests. The menu offered a great deal of options for steak lovers (my only complaint is that there is basically one vegetarian main entree...another would be welcome) and the service was lovely. The view is amazing. I hope to return again.

    Book a table at LA Prime because my cousin, visiting from out of the country, wanted to have a dinner with a view. She was happy with the restaurant choice. Steak was excellent. We also had oyster and crab cake as appetizer and both was good. Dessert was delicious, we had the hazelnut chocolate cake, cheese cake and i forgot the other one. The only drawback was the chiliean sea bass. My friend ordered it since she does not beef and she was not happy about it. She said it didn't taste like chilean sea bass. We even ask the waiter if it was a chilean sea bass and he said it was so we left it at that. On the overall it was a pleasant dining experience. Service was kind of slow but the waiters are nice

    I arrived here around 6:30 PM. When ordering, it was moderately difficult to find someone to take my order. When i asked the waiter for his opinion of the wine list, he had absolutely no idea what i was asking, which was unexpected out of a restaurant of this caliber. The breads were excellent. The seafood platter that came out first was very good. The onion soup that came after was incredibly salty. I enjoyed the steak at the end. We had desserts in the revolving cocktail lounge below, once again unattentive waiters.

    Fantastic views of the city of downtown LA. A beautiful and romantic place for special occasions. The customer service is fantastic and aids in the dining experience. The bone in rib eye is mouth watering and flavorful. I highly recommend it if you're a steak lover. One of my favorite restaurants in LA. We celebrated my husband's birthday, which I noted on the reservation notes and he got a free chocolate dessert that said happy birthday. It's located at the top of the building so the views are spectacular.

    I read many reviews of LA Prime and can say their food and service was outstanding. The crab cake appetizer was great quality large lumps of crab meat and the sauce complimented it well. I had the New York strip medium rare and it was cooked perfectly through the entire steak. The creamed spinach was equally as good.
