Diner Reviews
  • "Came to LA Prime this past weekend to celebrate an anniversary. The food was ok for the price but could have been better. The view of LA was great however i thought the ambiance was a bit flat. The lounge down stair seemed more alive and entertaining."

  • "This place was the best experience for my wife & I! Never have been treated with so much respect at any restaurant we've ever dined in at. The whole experience here was breath taking and left my wife very happy and that alone made my night! Our night! From the moment we walked in to the time we left.....thank you to all of your staff!"

  • "This is a great spot on the 35th floor of the Westin (Downtown L.A) the food and the view are amazing. Blake our server was knowledgeable and polite. This the perfect restaurant to have a nice dinner before a show, is only 5 minutes from the music center. I can only criticize 2 things......the floor shaking constantly, I suppose due to the proximity to the elevators. Second thing is for the customers., this an elegant restaurant....I'm always surprised at the ignorance of a lot of people who don't have the common sense to know that you don't show up to eat at a high end restaurant wearing shorts and t-shirts like if you were going to eat at Denny's! If you don't have the courtesy toward others to dress properly."

  • "Actually a 4.5 star experience. We had a delightful dinner here for my husband's birthday. We did use the Travelzoo menu this time and the food was really delicious. It is a place that you can come and relax, enjoy a great view and have a wonderful dinner. Server was good but not as attentive as past server we really loved here. Unfortunately we had asked for his table and got another server instead with the same name. But overall we still had a really nice dinner."

  • "I've been to very costly restaurants before and enjoy the occasional splurge. This wasn't one of those times. I had my first tip off when I ordered an old fashioned cocktail and found they only had three bourbons to choose from and the drink arrived with bright red maraschino cherries--the ones that taste like a red lollypop; most bartenders reserve them for Shirley Temples. I wished I'd brought some Luxardo cherries with me. My beet salad was tasty, but very small and should really have been called "Frisee salad with a few beets somewhere in there." The shrimp scampi was also well prepared. The flavor was good, but I wanted to go out for dinner after dinner. Entrees ranged from $32-60 or so. Pricey."

  • "Not as good as what I thought.I reserved through OpenTable and put the note "it's my first time and I wanna reserve a table by the window".However, when I get there, it seems like they didn't know that, and put us on a table inside. I talked to them and they put us to a table by the window but in the corner. They said other tables are reserved, but the whole night there was an empty table on a good spot. Also, our waiter was a old guy always forget something.I asked some lemon, he forgot. My friend ordered stake and he said he would put the sauce on the said, but he totally forgot. Moreover, he didn't have time when we asked for the bill, another lady helped us. It felt really bad that night. Also, I get 0 point from OpenTable!"

  • "The service was amazing. Our server Norma and Chef Jeffrey gave probably the best food/service that I have ever had in my life. I had a ratatouille moment where I reminisced over life and love through the food. It was truly AMAZING. Thank you Norma and Chef Jeffrey."

  • "The place is so relaxing with great view of downtown. Steaks are incredibly delicious. Worth the price for us. The service is amazing as well, waitress is friendly, very helpful and accommodating. Definitely a good place to go for occassion even if you have kids."

  • "The ambiance and service were excellent. The crab cake appetizer and lobster bisque were both delicious. However, my center cut petite filet, ordered medium rare, was definitely overcooked, a little tough, dry and pretty disappointing. I expected a very tender and perfectly cooked steak. Maybe I just don't know enough about steaks to order the right one the right way. I thought the baked potato was a bit overcooked as well. But, my date seemed to like his prime rib, and we did have a nice time and enjoyed the view a lot."

  • "Took hubby for his bday...we had a beautiful view of dtla & the service was excellent. Had the filet mignon & lobster. The steak was okay but the lobster was like butter...best I've ever had! A bit pricy but the experience was well worth it!"

  • "The food was yummy, the waitstaff lovely... but the room was incredibly uncomfortable, with no air circulating. THAT was a groove-killer and made for a not-very-happy Mother's Day for the eldest in our party (85 and 93 years old). We'd love to return, but nobody is in a hurry - which makes me sad. Such a lovely venue."

  • "They initially sat my wife and I at a spacious table for four but we thought that the booth that sits up a little higher and is more enclosed would give the three of us (our son was coming too) a better view and a little more intimacy for talking. They were happy to reseat us immediately. It took a while to get the brunch started but to be fair we were waiting for our son. The brunch had a good selection of steakhouse food that was pricey, somewhat traditional, but all-in-all worth the cost. Most importantly my wife was happy and our son opened up and shared about how things are going. LA Prime was perfect because it served our purpose well with a nice four course brunch and very little distraction. "

  • "I normally love this restaurant. I've done dinner on specialy occasions here before, and also Mother's Day brunch 2 years ago. Unfortunately, this year I felt it was lacking that amazing factor. The service wasn't as it usually is, the food was OK, the dessert option weren't all that, and the mimosas had a weird taste to them. I did appreciate the flower corsage they give mothers, it's a nice detail. I am not so sure I will be celebrating another Mother's Day there. "

  • "Jose, our server was great. The food was over priced for it's quality. My husband asked for a medium-well Filet Mignon, however it arrived well done and almost burned. Our server acknowledged it, and took and back. The mushroom side dish was horrible, dry and burned as well... the worst mushroom dish we ever had. The crab cake appetizer was over priced for the size of it. After all, the view, ambience and servers were excellent."

  • "I'm from New York and finding a place outside of NY for exellent steak is always a challenge for me. LA Prime was excellent! Steak was cooked perfectly, side dishes (Brussel Sprouts) were fresh and not over cooked, very flavorful. The Tuna carpaccio was yummy and flavored perfectly. "

  • "I have been a loyal customer of the restaurant for 23 years... before it was LA Prime. The reason I keep coming back is very simple...the service. Specifically two waiters that have been there even longer than that, Norma and Mark. This evening I made reservations to celebrate my daughters 16th b-day. Norma was working this evening and we were promptly seated and she began to make the evening magical for my daughter. All dishes were prepared perfectly, the meats were cooked exactly as ordered, service was prompt but most importantly Norma made us feel like family, as she and Mark always do. I will continue to patronize as well as recommend. You cant go wrong here for a fabulous meal and time. Thanks you LA Prime and Norma."

  • "Don't be the first ones to dinner they quit weren't prepared. Our waitress was very nice, the view was great. For the price paid for the food, the steak was good, but didn't water in my mouth, I've had better. There was nothing exciting about the chicken either just a side slab. "
