    They did not accommodate my special request; they gave me a large table for 4 when the arrangement was for 2 people. We had to request for a smaller table which took time which delayed our evening out.

    I have been here numerous times so I was excited to bring my father on Father’s Day; especially since it was his first time…The food was amazing, the chefs did a wonderful job, DELICIOUS! I just can’t believe the amount of time it took the waiter to check in and bring the food. I have never experienced such horrible customer service. Considering the type of establishment and the amount of money people pay here, everything should be up to par. The waiter brought the caviar to the table and assumed we wanted to wait nearly an hour to have the rest of our food. It wasn’t until I called another waitress to remind our waiter that it’s been way too long/when is the rest of the food coming?! I paid $730 just to sit and wait over 45 min for a salad, another 20 min for the wagyu, 15 min to get a refill of water and it got to the point where I had to get up to ask for the check because the wait time was beyond the normal time to bring a simple check to the table. I am disgusted that I had this horrible experience on Father’s Day. I always bring first-timers to this establishment, but I think I will take a break. I never want to go through that again. Extremely disappointed and I had to apologize to my father for having that as his first time experience at 71Above. What a complete let down.

    The view was fantastic -especially at night! Service was very good. We were seated on time and well-attended. We were a party of 4. Ordered the Point Dume (excellent), Hibiscus ???something..cant remember, a sip and found it too sweet for my taste and the waitress offered to change it for me, ordered the Point Dume (loved it). So between the four of us we had ordered the Fingerling potato, 2 handkerchief pasta and Octopus for first course. All of the items were excellent! Also ordered a basket of bread. The second course was Prime rib for all of us and it was cooked exactly like we asked for. For dessert, two of us ordered the strawberry panacotta (excellent) and two of us ordered the Tapioca with sorbet(disappointing). Overall, worth the experience since we were celebrating several milestones in the family!

    Me and my fiance celebrated our 7th anniversary at 71 above. We had the best experience. Our 3 course meal was exemplary. Outstanding service! We will surely going to come back to celebrate more special occasions here. My fiance had the salad, ribeye and strawberry and cream. I had the grilled octopus, young chicken and hazelnut opera. Everything was very delicious!!!!

    Unbelievable! Amazing! Haven’t had a wonderful meal and dining experience like this in a long time. Hats off to dining room staff and all the kitchen for seamless delivery of outstanding food. The Hiramasa Crudo had finger limes in it. That gave it a zest of citrus burst as you bite down on the tiny lime caviar pulp. I saved one on my plate and waitstaff asked kitchen for the name for me. Incredible flavors and textures in every dish. I highly recommend the Hiramasa Crudo starter, cod second and tapioca for dessert. YUM!!!

    We loved all of our meals. Each one was delicious and made me rethink how and what I’ve been eating up until this point. The fingerling potato appetizer course was especially delicious to the point where I had a flashback like the critic in Ratatouille. The main meat courses were juicy and flavorful. The desert was a great way to end the night. The view was amazing and the ambiance was delightful. I’d come here again for special days.

    Was told we would be moved to another table but never was. Tables do not match online photos and the high top seats do not look like where they are in photos. We were there to celebrate a birthday but the experience was a let down. Food was very good but portions are small, so perhaps order an extra entree or appetizer if you have a larger appetite. Overall the value for the price was mediocre.
