    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

    Took my mom to celebrate her 50th birthday. She loved it! The servers were fantastic and I was happy that they made my mom feel extra special by bringing out a treat with a candle at the end of dinner. The filet minon was amazing. Great place. Great food. And dont forget to snap a photo. The view is amazing.

    LA Prime outdid themselves again with our latest visit. We couldn't remember our previous servers name, but when we were seated, we were greeted by Norma, our wonderful, friendly server from before! Little things like this make us feel welcome, like regulars! The food, drinks, wine, service...all were amazing. We'll be back!

    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.

    Overall, our dining experience was very good. My wife ordered the filet mignon and as expected, it was good! I ordered the scallops, but were too salty! (I ate some of it, and didn't finished my food.) I was going to bring it to their attention but I was pressed by time as we are scheduled to watch a mini concert that nght.

    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.

    Our table was damaged under table cloth, when I slid my glass of wine toward me, it hit the hidden divot in the table and spilled all over me. My shirt and pants covered in red wine. I showed the bus boy and the waiter, and they comped two scoops of ice cream. Not happy about such a high end resteraunt ( our bill was $300.00) having this issue, with no visit from manager.

    We found this restaurant through Travelzoo and we were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere and the value. Absent was the loud background noise so we were able to carry on a conversation without having to raise our voices. The view was amazing and Jared, our waiter, was exceptional. His recommendations were appreciated and his guidance for the special menu was most helpful. This is truly a special occasion restaurant for us.

    The Food was great, service needs some work...waiting for a drink over 20 minutes. Manager was informed whom showed no care...coming back after trying to apologize in a demanding manner which I did not appreciate. He should show a little more respect for costumers-specially the ones pin pointing areas that need work. Although he did tried to apologize, I have to say the waitress showed more caring in a respectful manner!!!! overall am disappointed with this place-trying to surprise my bf on a birthday dinner that didn't quite get that far for such an elegant place!

    The food was just about perfect--the creamed spinach was wonderful. Service could not have been better, the view spectacular. The only problem was that, by dining in late afternoon, the sun reflections off surrounding buildings were bothersome, and we had to do a little moving around the table to get the bright light behind us or to our side. I did not see any sort of shades that might have lessened the problem. Other than that, our evening there could not have been better.

    Lovely place as a starter to a girls night out. Food was delicious! We ordered chicken wings (BEST I'VE EVER HAD), and pizzas. Like the fact that with certain drinks, you get to keep the glass as a souvenir. The ambience is a million dollar view! Our reservations were at 7:15PM which was perfect timing since we were able to see a spectacular DTLA sunset. Definitely would recommend this spot to anyone

    The steaks were absolutely delicious and huge. The side items and appetizers are large and served family style. Might be too much for one or two people to share. The sides weren't particularly tasty but not bad. The seafood platter appetizer was awesome and more than enough to share. The service was great. The wine was good. The view was ok. We were hoping that the restaurant would rotate for a 360 view but that's only available downstairs in the lounge. All in all, we had a great time. Would definitely go again.

    The food was wonderful - best prime rib I ever had. But this is definitely a very special occasion restaurant as it is very expensive. We had a drink at the cocktail lounge before dinner - $50 for 3 skimpy drinks. Then at dinner we each (3 people) had only an entree and a side. Total with tip $260. It was, however, a very special night and a great memory.

    I recently was at LA PRIME to celebrate our anniversary & was very thrilled to get there on-time and also to have a good steak! Unfortunately, to my surprise the restaurant was much less than what I expected. We were expecting a luxurious restaurant and a higher caliber of guest but as we walked in we began to feel overdressed (evening blazer & shirt), some guests were not only wearing shorts and t-shirts but to top it off some were wearing regular beach sandals which completely ruined the level and category to which LA PRIME sets themselves for. The service was descent, not stellar, our server was attentive but not consistent when the restaurant was not even crowded. The food was ok but not stellar, I've had a better experience at Mastros!
