If you want a restaurant with good real estate this is the place, if you want fine dining quality service then this isn’t the place. For a $500 tab you’d think items would be comped when a error happens that’s the establishments error. You can tell they are experiencing the 2021 employee shortage but instead of cutting tables they would add to servers sections spreading them thin on refills to table check up bc they are running around party rooms and the dining room. 1/10 would not go back. Kitchen was behind 25 mins

It was the beat of the bests. I had the New York stripe and it was tender and flavorful, the mashed potatoes with cheese were the beat I’ve tried in my life. The the chocolate pate was super yummy. My husband has the fillet mug on and was great also. It was expensive but totally worth it

We arrived a little early and waited for 15mins for our table to ready. Our waitress took a while to take our order. My cosmo was good but my boyfriends drink was watered down. He ordered an old fashion. We were there for dessert for his birthday but when we ordered our second drink it never arrived. It was disappointing seeing that it was for his birthday and the service was very slow.

Loved the architecture and the view!
Service was excellent. Food was fine.. I had the shrimp scampi.
The staff gave me a birthday treat which was appreciated. Nice touch.
The Bonavita Revolving Lounge was closed due to Covid, unfortunately. We were told it may be a few months before they open again.

We were celebrating our sons 30th birthday and wanted to treat him and his new wife for a nice evening out. The Westin Bonaventure is a special place for my wife and I so we wanted to share this with them. The setting was perfect and all the food was perfectly prepared. The steaks of course were melt-in-your-mouth delicious and cooked exactly how we wanted them. We tried 4 of the sides - loaded mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, mac & cheese, and the creamed core - all of them top notch. And of course the view is stunning watching the sunset then all the lights of LA coming out. It was a fantastic night out and something that my son and his new wife will remember for some time.

Great service. Food was excellent. Disappointed the parking situation was not explained in any email, text, during reservation process online, or on the phone. We were told once we were seated that parking is free when you eat at the restaurant. Also very disappointed the bar was not open and was not revolving. We were from out of town and specifically came to LA Prime because of the revolving bar.

The restaurant was fine. The decor was very dated from 1970s. It was very quiet and beige in color, which wasn’t very inviting. I felt like I was in grandmas living room. Nit to mention that we paid $460.00 for 3 people

The quality of the food was good- nice ambiance. It’s on the 35th floor of The Westin Bonaventure Hotel, which is very outdated.
The restaurant itself is good though.

Our experience was truly memorable and outstanding.
We arrived on time, yet the table was still busy. The manager Sam offered us drinks and stayed for the pleasant conversation. He offered us a table with the best view, and we even saw fireworks from Dodgers!
Food was truly exceptional - every dish. Meat was just perfect!
Our waiter was also knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful.
Overall, $$$$, but truly the right place for special occasion.

Horrible service. So disappointed. It took them 2 and a half hour to bring out our food and it was overcooked. We saw 2 tables walk out before we did... no one was happy and people were leaving even before getting their food, that’s how bad it was. Will never go here again.

Not what in was expected from a upscale restaurant service was very slow we got our dinner 45 minutes after our drinks that we waited to get them 20 minutes.
Not going back, not recommending this place. Food was good.

Food and service were amazing. I only gave it 4 stars because the bread in the bread basket was cold and chewy, and my lobster bisque was not hot enough. Other than that steaks and sides were excellent!

Everything was wonderful I only rated less than 5 stars because I wasn't able to communicate with them before the reservation and I had questions regarding the seating for wheelchair access and my reservation time. I didn't get a call back but I will say once we got there everything was wonderful. We will definitely visit again. That was the best lobster ever! The chef also came around (Chef Rasheed I believe was his name) and checked on patrons which I thought was really a nice touch.
