A big disappointment that even with a 3 week reservation to celebrate a birthday with a window table, they weren't able to accommodate.
Nice dinner and nice service, but they should have been more thoughtful.

Service was good once we were seated. We waited 30 minutes for a table that was available the moment we checked in. Hostess skipped us in order and acknowledged the mistake as we were being seated.

Food was average. Scallops and ribeye were too salty and sent back. Meal was not memorable. The caviar oyster app was good as was the dessert, stone fruit with pear ice cream.

Recommend coming for the view and apps + drink. Not worth sitting down for a full meal.

Spectacular view and good service. The food, although good enough, is not great, and at these prices, one should demand great food. The value simply isn't there. One is paying for the view. Great ambiance, professional service. Food is good. For the price, however, better food can be found in this city at half the price. It's an experience restaurant, I guess. (I did notice everyone around us was there for an anniversary or birthday.)

The restaurant is excellent. I think the website could improve their instruction about how to reserve the window seat correctly. That would be helpful for customers to make an accurate reservation!

What would have been a great anniversary experience, was thwarted early by the front receptionist who didn't seem happy or welcoming. She shuffled us to a poor table, calling out impersonal table # options to her helper that felt cold and obviously careless of my call into the restaurant over the weekend to tell them of our event and desire for a West facing window at sunset (which was told to me would not be a problem when I booked). After complaining of the table given (East facing and next to kitchen with noise and waiters hanging out), we were given a somewhat better option (why not present us that earlier?) The food courses started out wonderful with an intro small bite platter (excellent), 1st course egg dish and oysters (both truly fantastic), 2nd courses steak tartare (flavorless) and prawns (pretty good, but not great) and finally the main course dishes of ribeye (too smothered in sauce) and chicken (good, but nothing special). The cocktails were quite nice and I have to say all of the staff, besides the reception girl were truly excellent. Our waiter was genuinely strong and felt right for the price point. Overall, it was a good meal marred by a negative introduction that frankly ruined the experience and energy.

When I first looked at the menu, I was not sure what to order. I knew most of the food by name, however, I had never heard of the spices that were being mixed with the food items. I needn’t have worried. All the dishes were explained including the best way to eat them. The food was delicious, with many unique flavors. I highly recommend this restaurant for the delicious food and the panoramic view of the sunset and the city lights!!!

We came in late because of our navigation and that’s my fault. We did not get a comfortable dining seat table rather we had a standing seat table eventhough we had 3 kids w/ me. We requested to be seated by the window but did not get them. It took a while before our waitress came in but she did well afterwards. The food are to die for. We’ll definitely come back but w/o the kids this time...lol. Overall, the experience is great!!!

The ambiance of the restaurant was very calm and relaxing. The service was spectacular and the food was great. The only thing I would t recommend for anyone to get would be the oysters that’s part of the first course meal. Other than that everything else was tasty and delicious. Would recommend anyone who is planning on going on a first time date or a birthday dinner date to go there!!!

Everybody was nice. We booked a chefs table. Food was great. 5 course and we were fed well!

How I wish there was steak and shrimp in the menu. The view was amazing.

We did the chefs table with wine pairing. Food was great, nothing too exciting really. Everybody was so nice and friendly, but not personable. Weird, but true.

View was spectacular. That’s pretty much it. Will we ever come back? Uhm... doubt it. But who knows?!?

despite the cuisine and the environment is. nice it's extremely overpriced. in all the world of turning restaurants this is the most awful view thanks to pollution. And for not being a turning one it is overpriced.
dishes are small and creative but do not worth what is priced.

Location fantastica, con vista su buona parte di Los Angeles. Menu molto interessante, soprattutto nella formula pranzo - 2 piatti a scelta a 35$ + tasse e mance. Oltre ai tavoli vicini alle finestre, ve ne sono alcuni che sono proprio a ridosso del vetro, dove i commensali siedono di fianco e hanno una vista frontale a 180 gradi. Servizio cortese ed efficiente. Ambiente moderno e ricercato.
