The food was good, but our server was terrible. Our bus boy, Francisco, was much more attentive than our server. He never let our water glasses get empty and I love that. Our server came to take the order, then, we didn’t see him until he came back to take our dessert order. We were celebrating our anniversary, but they never even acknowledged it. When we were done, the server took 20 minutes to come to our table to ask us if we wanted the check. When he came back with the check, it was completely wrong. It’s way too overpriced to have the unacceptable level of service that we had.

We have been wanting to come back for quite some time now. We decided to do it on a night that we had a holiday concert at the Wiltern. Dinner was beyond amazing as was the ambiance. The cocktails were also very good. You pay a premium price for premium food and service. My filet was butter soft as was my husbands seabass, just amazing. The creamed corn, crispy brussel sprouts and shrimp cocktail were also amazing. The portions were big as well. Our waiter was especially conscious of our time when we explained we only had an hour or so to spend to make it to our concert. They surprised us with a delicious bday dessert as well. We can't wait to come back, we will not wait 15 years again!

Amazing view but for the price, just ok. The wedge salad had the weirdest taste to it, but the steak was cooked perfectly and had great flavor. $72 pretty pricey for just a piece of meat though. Also I was charged $18 for the salad “as an entree”. Service very slow as well for a Tuesday nite. We won’t be back.

We had one NY Steak and one Ribeye steak requested all medium cook.

NY Steak made well done and felt very dry without special taste and disappointing.

Ribeye was good vs NY.

We may not go to this restaurant considering overall food qualities.

The view is what makes the place fantastic! Food was awesome but just a bit pricey. We had two steaks, two sides and two bottles if water and payed $185 + tip. If you don't go there daily it's totally affordable...again, the view!

The Bonaventure use to be a futuristic design when it was built, I came here as a teen in 1977 and I was very impressed. Nowadays it is still very nice from the outside but from the inside, it is grey, dark, dusty and built as a concrete maze. It is also a short building compared to the other towers around, especially if you compare it to the "71 Above" nearby that is much better if you come for the view, or the food. This steak house is good for the service, the food is not refined, the beef is decent if you are not from Texas ( if you are, rather order fish). The wine list is extensive and on the expensive side, but they have older vintages of good producers from California and France. I would not recommend for the view that is now pretty obstructed by all the newer constructions, neither for the food that is average, but the service that is pleasant...

We were a party of 6 celebrating my daughters surprise 22nd birthday. The service from beginning to end was impeccable, from the valet and all throughout the meal, all of our expectations were met, or surprisingly exceeded. Our server CAMERON was great, and very attentive, and made the celebration feel special. I didn’t get the maître d’s name, but she was EXTREMELY professional and actually was the KEY in making the surprise work. She knew exactly how to make it seem as if the reservation I had was for only 3 people, and I didn’t even communicate that information clearly in my reservation.
Menu prices are very high, but the quality of food is top grade. The restaurant is located in a very iconic Hotel, so I would assume a similar style restaurant in a more conventional area would be 10-15% cheaper, but you definitely won’t be getting an INCREDIBLE view of Downtown Los Angeles, atop the 35th floor of the Bonaventure Hotel.
Overall I would highly recommend the experience. Whether it be for a celebration, or just an intimate dinner out on the town, as long as you are prepared for a very large bill when the check comes, you will be comfortable and free, to enjoy whatever occasion you are there for. And valet parking is FREE with a validation from the restaurant. I’ve attached a photo of our actual bill for a party of 6, to give you an idea of what to expect.

This place was a very expensive option for pretty good food. I typically will only spend big money for food that is exceptional, so I didn't feel this was worth the price of the meal. Their steak (as predicted) is quite good, but I wasn't blown away.

The service was awful. They didn't serve all the diners at my table at the same time. We had to ask several times for our food or drinks or even bread. When I complained to the maitre'd, he did accommodate us very nicely and offered some free wine. I think they were just under staffed for the busy night I was there.
