    Would recommend for ambiance and city night view. Food was good and served hot. However, what drew us in that evening was their Skyline Menu, which is valid for evenings with events at either Staples Center or Nokia theatre. Although I was glad they accommodated, the website should have been clear about the specific times this menu is valid. I don't believe it should have come down to me requesting for it, especially when I had called earlier to confirm. I had been to this restaurant before and that night I didn't want to be made to feel cheap. Also, upon making the reservation, I had mentioned the evening was for an anniversary occasion. But besides the greeting upon arrival, there was no other acknowledgment of the occasion. I just felt that they cared more about their bottom line than to making the occasion special. If they were more inclined to cater more to the customer's needs, I may have been inclined to spend more than what I was going to already spend. oh well.

    Expensive fixed price menu. You are paying for the views and the stunning decore. Appetizers and mains are good if you stick to the direction of the wait staff. Desert is included. Our table of 6 ordered a variety of deserts. All looked very appealing but tasted odd.

    Easy to get to , great view which is fun, very good service, food was surprisingly good as in many big chef named restaurants the experience is more the scene and food can sometimes be secondary ....especially when one eats real Chinese food ....Duck was fantastic good ambiance, good buzz , impressed when the front desk was able to give me the LSU / Alabama result even if it was bad news.....I'd go back!

    Husband and I dined at WP24 on November 1 for our anniversary. We were escorted through the lively scene at The Nest and into WP24. Captivating scene and view. Stellar wait staff. Not concerned much with the price. I recognize the ambiance, the view, and the venue being located in the Ritz Carlton, dictates a higher price. The best presentation of the food provided was by far the dessert. The disappointment was overhearing the music from The Nest the entire time we were dining in WP24. This was our anniversary celebration. Expected a more subdued ambiance, and a different selection of music. If we had wanted an active bar scene we would have paid a lesser cost and dined at The Nest.

    I don't know why I thought Chinese from Wolfgang Puck would be strange, but it was great. After a maze-like arrival to the elevators and through the huge club-like bar to the restaurant, buried way in the back, things improved (though the 80s New Wave Hitz on the restaurant background audio system was an odd selection). Food, though: amazing. We had spring rolls (fried) and "Tiny Dumplings" made with pork belly and black vinegar that came out with some little chef nibbles that were excellent. Our mains were even better: "General Tso" glazed quail (huge portion) and Hot Pot wagyu beef short ribs. We skipped dessert, but the specialty cocktails were fantastic and expertly prepared as well. Well worth the visit.

    Our host, bartender, & staff were amazing. Upon hearing it was our anniversary, the bartender and the hostess arranged for us to go up to the rooftop before we were seated so we could see the city. The staff also sent out deserts with 'Happy Anniversary' on them. It was very sweet. They really made it special. Ironically enough, the only minor drawback was our waiter, who started out strong and then over the course of the evening went on autopilot. But amazing food, amazing scenery, and the rest of the staff really made it a night to remember.

    We really enjoyed ourselves here. the appetizers and main courses were fantastic. we shared everything at the table, so we could explore more of the menu. we found the deserts to be anticlimactic to the flavors of the first two courses. the restaurant is dark and beautiful with spectacular views.

    Beautiful view. Very good food. Do not need the prix fixe, particular since it is not really a prix fixe with all the "supplements." Need to get a vibe growing. With that view and good food you should be packed. But maybe people can't find how to get to the restaurant from the lobby. Every customer I talked to had to ask directions. (The security guy in the lobby who walked me all the way to the elevator, with menu suggestions along the way, was great.)

    We arrived early but were told to wait in the bar. After 4 couples were seated before us we asked again about our table. We booked weeks prior but were seated in the "second row" instead of the prime window tables however still had a nice view. Oddly there was a single guest rattling newspapers loudly throughout our dinner. Clearly he was some kind of big deal as he had 3-4 servers to himself which might have been why our service was a bit lacking. The courses were all excellent in every way and there were a few extra appetizers given. The servers didn't time themselves well and one spilt hot tea all over me so more attention all around was needed especially given the price point. It was a great "one time is enough" experience.

  • King Crab special at WP24

    Dined on 10/14/2014
    Outstanding presentation of a live king crab prior to dining. Several courses all very different with king crab - tasty, spicy, more than 6 people can eat; would have liked to see crab ceviche as appetizer as many of the dishes were full of other ingredients which sometimes overlooks the crab. Would definitely recommend this for a group dining experience!!

    I had a business dinner at WP24. The view was amazing, Downtown L.A. with a full moon. I took the two entrées and one main course option. The food was excellent, as well as the wine pairing. Asian cuisine, with some spicy tasting. The dinner was on a Tuesday, and the restaurant was half empty. We were able to talk comfortably, and did not get to hear anything from the neighboring tables.

    Everything about our evening at WP24 was well executed. We were seated immediately, despite being rather early for our reservation. The view is spectacular. The service was attentive and timely, and the food was very good. If I were to find any fault, it would be that the food was perhaps a little conventional, and I might have expected more experimentation with flavors and combinations in such an upscale restaurant.

    Took my mom here for a birthday dinner while she was visiting from New York. She's been to many of the best restaurants there, and she declared that this was one of the best places at which she has ever dined. I agree! Stunning decor, delicious food, friendly and professional staff, and an incredible view high atop downtown LA make for one of LA's (if not the country's) most fabulous restaurants!

    Starting with the 24th floor as you walk through the beautiful bar area there's no doubt you are in for a treat. The food is innovative, beautifully prepared and presented and the service is just right. At $80 prix fixe for 3 courses this is not an inexpensive evening, but definitely worth the visit.

    The bar area is so noisy my date & I could not hear one another speak while sitting next to each other in a booth! The food was so salty I could barely eat it. The waiter added two items to the bill that had not been ordered, they were later removed. Food & service do not match the price. We will not revisit the Ritz Carlton location.

    In terms of atmosphere, service, views, and top quality food too. Yes, other reviews are true that it's not cheap. But such a restaurant with class is rarely seen in the US where chinese food have the image of needing to be cheap. I rate this restaurant's overall experience on par with any good high class chinese restaurants in Hong Kong.

    First thing we noticed was that there wasn't any music playing and so basically a stale room with no ambiance. We were told after asking that the music player was broken. At $80/head plus drinks etc. this is pretty unacceptable. The service was excellent. The food was just okay. I wouldn't rave about anything specific. For the money I would go to Melisse.

    We selected this restaurant for a special occasion and went with high hopes.... We were not disappointed. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were shown to the bar for cocktails, which were excellent. When we were escorted to our table we were very impressed with the location and view. We were seated in the corner table with stunning skyline views of LA Downtown on both sides. The restaurant appeared to be quiet which created a nice intimate feel. The food was beautiful and the staff could not have been more polite or helpful. My wife has a nut allergy, and despite the extensive use of nuts on the menu they helped us to find plenty of options. We would definitely recommend this top class restaurant.
