Just as good as Denny's for six times the price.

We were UTTERLY disappointed with this place. Took our daughter to Universal Studios, and thought it'd be a real treat for her to dine atop a tall building in a revolving restaurant. Believe me, the view was the ONLY highlight.

We were a bit early for our reservations, so when we ordered, the waiter told us he couldn't put our food order in until 5:00 when the kitchen opened. OK, makes sense. Had a cocktail and ate the complimentary Chex Mix while we waited. Apparently, though, you only get one bowl to snack on, no matter how long you wait. The waiter never came back and offered to refill drinks or Chex Mix. When the food arrived, the fries were tough and limp, like they'd been under a heat lamp for a couple hours. Really. Food that supposedly had to wait until 5:00 to be made, appeared to be hours old. The hamburgers were lukewarm, mediocre and small. The lobster roll (mostly roll, not much lobster) was so salty we had to send it back (and we NEVER send food back). The waiter apologized, said he'd be right back with another one, and NEVER RETURNED! The rest of us finished our food, and we finally tracked down the waiter to tell him never mind — just cancel the lobster roll and give us the check.

We expected to pay extra to dine in a revolving rooftop restaurant. It would've been OK if the food and/or service even approached a C-minus, but this experience fell deep into F territory. For a hotel and restaurant that place themselves at such a high price point, this is a disgrace. I've had better food and service at McDonald's. Every McDonald's.

Needless to say, we will never come back, and we have one piece of advice for anyone else considering dining here: RUN AWAY, SCREAMING!!!

Surprisingly good food and drinks for a place I feared would be a tourist trap. No at all. Will certainly go again. The slow rotation of the Lounge was obvious but not distracting or a problem. Obviously the views were great and the seating very comfortable. The New England clam chowder was particularly good as it was NOT thickened with a load of starch. It was a true NE style.

Super cool little spot to take a date before or after a night out in Down Town. Great views of the skyline as you go around the lounge on the revolving floor!

A very elegant way to share a romantic evening. The drinks and the view are the main reasons to go. The food menu is very limited.

Ambience is great, service was very good, our server was so friendly. The food was extremely underwhelming. Given the price, I would not eat here again. My piña colada was good though.

Outstanding views, great beverages, excellent food and a fairly quiet place to unwind, eat and soak in a 360 degree view of the area. It isn’t the cheapest place to eat and drink, but I found it to be well worth the cost.

The Bonavista was great. The setting, the light, the food; it was all amazing. One thing that I did find that could be changed was the Chex mix. It just doesn’t seem fitting for a restaurant as nice as the Bonavista and it sort of reduced it value in taste. I would remember a French or Italian bread. Although it doesn’t go with the menu, it is much classier and I think it will be overlooked as far as it’s need to fit in with the rest of the menu. Other than that everything was fantastic and I definitely plan on making dinner reservations again as well as recommend it to friends.

We enjoy rotating and looking at all the downtown buildings (and the sunset)! The waitstaff are pleasant and helpful. But the menu and food was a disappointment. No variety of light appetizers to share. Only a huge hamburger, nothing like sliders that would be easy to eat without making a mess. The chocolate cake looked pretty but the frosting was solidified in a refrigerator!
We’ll probably go again for the view. But hope their menu improves!

Perfect place to lounge and have a few drinks. It was my sons b-day and the brought a small slice of chocolate muse. Unexpected. It was very nice. My only issue was the parking attendants. Very rude. Had to snap back. Very disrespectful.

Go for the view! Food service was slow but that's actually a plus so we got the chance for the full 360 rotation. We we're served chex mix instead of peanuts or chips which is good for some. The food and drinks for those prices or any price was subpar. I would return if the food and beverages improved. Next time just I'll head to LA Prime upstairs.

Definitely worth one time visit. Beautiful location, nice and unique ambiance, gorgeous view. However, the menu choices are very limited. None of our meals was what we expected. The grilled chicken sandwich - just a brioche bun and a piece of grilled chicken breast in there? Cheeseburger is just OK; for this kind of place and the prices we would expect something more creative. Service is friendly but SUPER slow. We were waiting about 10 min just for our server to figure out if there vanilla ice cream.
As I said - one time visit, not coming back.

This place is overrated! The food is mediocre the service is under par and it’s overpriced. There is obviously no “dress code” because everyone that came in looked like they were going to a baseball game. The only good thing about this place was the view. But, still not worth it!

My party arrived at 7:15, which was great as the restaurant was empty. The larger groups began arriving around 8 PM. My party had the burger, steak sandwich and lobster roll, which were great. The strawberry daiquiri was sweet and refreshing. Our waiter was very attentive and the view, of course, was AMAZING. I definitely recommend catching the sunset here.

You know how they say you can tell if a place is good depending on how many people you see? Well there is a reason why this place is empty! Limited drink menu, poor wine choices and no food, not even dessert at late night. So many more happening lounges with a view in DTLA...I suggest you go to them.
