Diner Reviews
  • "The mixed Drinks were not balanced out right. The Chef's mushrooms side dish tasted rubbery the service was ok the view was the best thing about it. "

  • "We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner here, we wanted to celebrate our 34th anniversary at the hotel we had our wedding reception at. Glad we did. Our booth was nice and it was wonderful to see the beautiful view from it, actually every table has a nice view. Our server, Barrett, was excellent. His great personality and his attentiveness made us really enjoy our special evening. Our food was very good, just a few little missteps to us in a couple of items but overall we really enjoyed the food. It was an amazing dinner and coming to the hotel brought back a lot of memories of our wedding day. Will return again."

  • "I was in town for a convention staying in the hotel and found it was LA Restaurant week. I went to Prime for dinner the first night of my two-night stay and it was so delicious and so reasonable I saw no reason to go anywhere else the next night. I was dining alone with a book and the staff made me feel so welcome and the waitress and I had a nice discussion about the book. The next night when I went back (with the same book) she remembered me by name as I was approaching the podium. A very nice personal touch. I felt very welcome. The food was delicious and you can't beat the view. Stop for a drink at the revolving bar one floor below before you come."

  • "From the firdt breath taking view , as you ascend the tower, to the first sight of your meal, the visual impact of the experience is "Prime"! The quality and tsste can, only, be considered so, too. All wrapped up in attentive, but not smothering service, the evening was a stunning success!"

  • "The most incredible food I have eaten in my whole life! Great food and the view is out of this world. They catered to my request of a window seat & we were very happy. Will go again when we return to LA."

  • "The menu is extensive and everyone should be able to find something that is promising. The view can be amazing and since we were a bit early for the dinner hour, our view was exceptional (northfacing)! The food was just so-so good. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't exceptional and that's what I'd expect from a restaurant with so much else going for it. Service got slower the more it went into the dinner hour. By the end of our visit, the service was not good (he forgot a dessert we were going to share but the delay was such that my partner had to leave). Overall, I really do enjoy visiting this restaurant and for a visitor to downtown LA, it really is a must. Simply manage your expectations to average and you'll be very happy."

  • "the food was incredible. We had the steak with the potatoes and it was cooked to perfection. The potato was huge."

  • "I took my wife here 10+ years ago when I proposed marriage to her. I took her back again for our 10 year anniversary and it was just as good as I remember it. The staff is great and always willing to help with a great attitude. They even brought us a free desert for our 10 year anniversary. We had the Rib eye with half of the lobster tail, lobster bisque, cesar salad, risotto, and potatoes. The food is excellent and you cant go wrong if you want to impress your wife or girlfriend, I highly recommend this place to anyone!"

  • "We have dined here twice now and each time it gets better and better. It was my husbands birthday and he was treated like a king. And the view is to die for, pricey but well worth every cent we spent."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We always enjoy LA Prime. Maria always takes very good care of us which is why we keep going back. The views makes it feel like we have escaped from the city for a little while. The food is always fantastic and flavorful."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This is a pricey fancy place with a fantastic view and great service, the it is not the best steak house in town but if you have guests from out of LA and want to treat them to something special, it will work pretty good."

  • "Service, atmosphere, scenic was perfect. Food was so salty. And I didnt know you can bring dogs into the restaurant? A little weird."

  • "My request were not met or acknowledge (as first timers with my BF). It was very noisy due to a group, but we were able to change seats. Reservation was at 7:15 we didn't eat until past 8:45. 1st Waiter was not knowledgeable on their wine list nor bother giving us any information on their best wine (this is important to know as a waiter). Our second waiter was more friendly and nicely answer questions and gave us suggestions on wines. Food was good we had the surf and turf. But in the end, will not return to this restaurant."

  • "Had drinks at the revolving bar first and then headed upstairs for dinner. Really appreciated the call from staff suggesting we arrive 30 minutes earlier to have sufficient time for dinner. Food was excellent and service was top notch. I would definitely return."

  • "At last, a view restaurant (and in a hotel, no less) that doesn't try to get by on its amazing view of the City laid out 35 floors below; the food is all actually quite good, especially the prime steaks they specialize in. Oysters Rockefeller, Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, and excellent lobster tails, show they know seafood, too! After dinner, we always head one floor below to the revolving bar/lounge, that takes you on a 360 degree tour of the city in about an hour."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were in town for a conference and had 3 people, all staying in the hotel. The one criticism I would throw out is that they have a little bar on the floor, but decided not to have a bartender there that night so it was sitting empty. That was weird considering how crowded they were. Anyway, we were late and they still got us a table right away. The steak with a side of truffle was amazing, and all the sides were delicious. We had a great experience all around."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Great food, great wine, great ambiance, great service (thanks Blake). We had an absolutely perfect evening at LA Prime capped off with a fun time at the club downstairs in the Bonaventure Hotel lobby."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "overall a 4 star place. my wife and I both had filet, mine was bone-in. both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The sides were ok, mac-n-cheese and potato puree. the service wasnt great. the server did not know the wine on the list that well. did not have any recommendations for us, although he was polite and attentative. the rotating bar downstairs was cool, we went to prior to dinner. the service there was terrible, 15 minute wait on drinks alone and our table was ready before we paid for our drinks. the view was excellent because it rotated around the building to let you see all of downtown."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The food was outstanding at this restaurant. We waited 10 minutes for someone to greet us and take a drink order. It was this way all through the night. I would have thought at the price I was ping for dinner they would have been looking over my shoulder!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Went for Valentines Sweetheart Dinner. Everything was outstanding! Very highly recommended for special occasions. Go at sunset can't beat the City view. Service was impecable."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Yes, come for the view, stay for the food! LA Prime has undoubtedly the best views in town, especially when you sit at one of the window tables. But, don't underestimate the quality of the food, and the better-than-average service. Our server was discreet, maybe a bit too "absent", but overall very good. The food was excellent, as you would expect from a restaurant which serves "Prime" cuts of steak, cooked perfectly to our desired doneness. As for sides, the mac 'n cheese, as well as the trio of sautéed mushrooms were very good. Started with the Lobster Bisque, which, though delicious, was so filling, we had to pass on dessert. I think next time I'll pass on the starter, and save room for what looked like beautiful and tasty desserts!"

  • "i was recommend to this spot by a friend the food and service were great. what i did not like was the restraunt looks outdated it feels like you are in the 1990s and for such expensive prices it is not so intamate, also the music they were playing sounded like 60s music so that made it feel more retro"

  • "Could be more romantic....didn't feel the romance. Focus on lighting. Food was okay... Not great"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I had a fantastic night. The food was delicious. The only thing was that they took a little long to get our main dish but I guess if you want quality it takes time to make. Great experience would def recommend to friends and family. We will be going back for sure and soon."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My return visit was not as notable as the first visit. I had the lamb ribeye. The sauce over took the flavor of the meat. We had a lovely time with the quietness of our table and the drop dead view. Our server was on top of it and made this review notch up to good."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "This restaurant is a very romantic place to take a loved one. I was very pleased with the service and the atmosphere. We wanted to take pictures with the scenery behind us and everyone there was amazing. This restaurant has GREAT staff and that's what make a business successful. Thank you to all"

  • "Took my girlfriend out to an early Valentine's dinner to L.A. Prime and she was shocked to the way it was set up and the scenic view during and after our dinner"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The one outstanding fact about this resturant is that is sits a top the most beautiful hotel in Los Angeles on the 35th floor. The restuarant does not revolve but the bar downstairs does. As far as the food it was ok, not worth the price you pay for it. The sides were probably the best part and the desert was good. The main course was just ok, we were hoping for better."

We have a one year old baby so we haven't gone out much this past year, and wanted this night to be worth it! Wow! Great view, romantic, great food, great service. What more can I say? We were like two love birds enjoying the view and a delicious meal!!!"
