This was an amazing experience. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and it didn’t disappoint. We had excellent customer service and excellent food.
However, the only thing that I didn’t like was on how to get to the restaurant. We were lost for about 10 minutes until a staff member directed us to the elevator that took us to the restaurant.

I've been to LA Prime before and both times have been excellent! The ambiance is beautiful and the food was amazing. I ordered my filet mignon medium rare but was a bit overcooked. Other than that, overall amazing restaurant! Would most definitely cone here often.

LA prime is inside the beautiful Westin Bonaventure. As soon as I arrived to the hotel’s parking garage I mentioned I was dining at LA prime and received complimentary parking! The ride up the elevator to the 35th floor was scenic and unique . The service was outstanding. The food was a bit salty for someone on a low salt diet. If you are, you may want to mention it. I did taste the filet mignon and lobster tails which was perfectly delicious!! I ordered the shrimp scampi ( a bit salty) and lobster bisque ( salty) . The sea bass is amazing and cooked to perfection... I definitely enjoyed my evening at LA Prime !!

Was my first time coming for a surprise bday dinner for my fiancé and we loved it. Service was on point and the ambience is very cozy and romantic will def return. Reason for my 4 stars was because even though everything was great the chicken could have used just a little bit more flavor but overall great place to come dine

First time here and it was amazing!! It was a little overcast but the view from the 35th floor of the Bonaventure was stellar. We sat on the north end so our view was China town Dodger stadium.

The service was great Maria was very knowledgeable of the menu and made awesome recommendations. We used Uber in and out of downtown, and allowed for some serious Mojito's very tasty.

It was a great view, and the servers were very accommodating. The food was just good. Some items were great, but it wasn’t consistent. For a nice view of the city with a lounge downstairs that rotates for a 360 view of LA, this is the place.

Beautiful place. Food was great. Must admit, seemed a little pricey for what we got. I realize it was on Vday weekend but man, some of the prices were almost double from a regular weekend menu. They also removed a few of the things we were the most excited about trying for the Vday menu.

If you're a restaurant and you're gonna hit my wallet that hard at least have the decency to hit my mouth too.

Over all > Good place, great service, HUGE wine list. Would recommend, just not on a vday.

It was just not worth $580, serious gouging of clientele under the excuse of Valentines Day. I received a phone call AFTER I made reservations that the bill would be $160 a person and that a fee would be charged to my credit card if I canceled. Another point on this is that that "$160" a person did not include an automatic 18% gratuity - totally not worth it BTW - plus having to pay for water AND if we wanted an additional drink. The service felt rushed and unfriendly. Overall a MAJOR disappointment that ended up costing more than any restaurant in LA. As a long time Bonvoy/Marriott customer, I've never felt more ripped off! The Westin should be ashamed of themselves.

A Valentine’s Day home run! The steaks & lobster were the best we’ve ever had. Absolutely choice meats cooked to perfection! Bravo! Potatoes were great too. Add some greens to the main course (like asparagus or French-style green beans) & it would have been the best meal in town. Service was top-notch, the views spectacular. Free valet parking was nice too (esp when you consider the daily in-&-out rate for hotel guests is 50/day!) The only things we thought could be improved upon have to do with ambiance: it’s about time for a furniture upgrade— they’re
a little behind the times here; booths, walls & tables need some more warmth. And the old-school sound system with cheap overhead speakers gots to go. Music makes the evening, & while I think they were on the right track with classic jazz, coming out of low-grade speakers made it sound more like an elevator. We’ll be back for the food though! OFF-THE-CHARTS!!!

I ordered the scallops and they were “sandy” and the menu stated there were mashed potatoes with the meal and I did not see or taste any mashed potatoes in my meal. So I’m thinking it was an an incomplete meal for the price

We have been to the restaurant before loved it and the bar below. The food and service was excellent. All tables have a view. The only reason I did not give it all 5 stars for everything is because they seated a in a corner and it was my daughter’s birthday. She still loved it!!!

Came here for dinela. The food was good. But it was nothing special. For it being 60 bucks than the usual 50 for a typical steakhouse dinela it was not worth it. The lobster bisque was not what I expected. It wasnt the best and not as decadent or creamy as I was expecting it to be. It tasted more like the guts. Nothing wrong with that but it was too much. The steak was good cooked perfectly. Very lightly seasoned if it was even seasoned. The sides you would want to get is extra. It came with potatoe au gratin and it was grainy. I would've preferred plain ol mash. We added the creamed corn. It was good but I've had better. The dessert looked and tasted like it was made in a factory. Nothing special. It was a nice experience great as ambiance, great service terrible traffic but I would've choose to go to another steakhouse next time around.

Customer service was well however, the food was not. Overcooked, undercooked, worse steak in my entire life. I blame it on a bad day, night. So I’ll give it another chance because the reviews I read prior to visiting was opposite of my experience. But as of now, it’s 0 for 1 with me.
