I took a friend here so she could get a great view of Los Angeles. We made a reservation but asked to be sat at the bar since we were only getting drinks and small plates. It is important to note that 71 Above fills up quickly, so it is always safer to have a reservation. The bartenders put on a show for us and REALLY took care of us. It was an amazing experience that we did not want to end. The drinks and food are well worth the money and the view was to die for... not to mention the sunsets.

Have been for dinner about 4 times and decided to go for lunch. BIG mistake. So disappointing in most every way (save for the spectacular views. Problems with parking, hostess in lobby, hostess in restaurant and then their inability to properly cook a burger. Seriously, they could NOT get a burger right and wife sent it back twice. Had to leave before they'd be able to do another which at that point we just wanted to leave. Of course they didn't charge us for her burger and the manager was very nice, but we won't make the mistake of doing lunch here again.

I'd still highly recommend for dinner. Great drinks, and delicious and beautiful dishes.

This was my second time at 71 above the recent one I was unhappy because of the personnel because of main chef Vartan Abgaryan is no longer at 71 above the atmosphere and the kitchen is not the same anymore I had special guests from Russia and because constantly mention to my guest that they were invited at 71 above . my guests were not happy with the food menu also my $1030 went to waste

I originally requested a window seat and made a reservation 3 months in advanced to come and find out on our anniversary dinner that we are not seated at the window. I could've been made, but still decided to enjoy the moment and view from our seats. The service was amazing. Nelson our waiter was very proper and explained the menu thoroughly (maybe a little too much) but he was passionate and made sure that he explained what we could be consuming so there would be no surprises. Please make sure that you say if you are celebrating a special occasion as they provide certain perks for anniversaries or birthdays.
The management heard about their failed reservation request, and they made sure that everything else went smoothly for us. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back. The hostess, waiter, runners, management and everyone else behind the scenes have done an amazing job at 71 above.

71 above is a ver sheek upscale fine dining restaurant. The ambiance, decor, and views are awsome. It was a clear night, and you can see the wonderful lights of the city of LA. At some points, helicopters fly right around the place. It was a cool site to see. The service was a bit slow. We had to search for our server in order to get a drink. He could have been a little more attentive. Food comes as a 3 course meal. They have lots of options. The first 2 courses where wonderful. Full of flavor and tasty. The main course was good, only thing is the temperature. I had the rib eye and my GF had the duck. Both came out warm. I like my meat to be hot, fresh off the grill. Other than those issues, it was a pleasant night and the view was something to see. I heard the bar section has a decent menu. Might have to try that one day.

Our server Ceaser was amazing! Super knowledgeable about all our food and very attentive. In fact, all the staff was super friendly and I can’t rave enlighten about the service! That being said...food was good, not great. Definitely not $300 worth. But it was an experience. I was celebrating my one year marriage anniversary, and the ambience was what we were looking for. There’s nothing quite like that view from the 71st floor. Not sure that we would be coming back any time soon, but it was definitely fun and perfect for a special occasion.

The view here is the best in the city and hard to beat. It's a little tough to get there through the maze of elevator banks, but once you arrive, spectacular view. This is my third time here and probably the last. I went when the restaurant was new and had lunch and dinner within a two month period. I would have given the restaurant an A+ review on all categories. This time, the food was average to poor. I almost sent the octopus back is was so awful and my guest did not eat her pasta. It is too expensive to just be average. There are other places I will frequent downtown before this one.

First let’s start with the place has a cool vibe and look. Great bar and lounge area , fabulous wine displays. The service was wonderful the food was OKAY sadly I can’t even recall most of it
It was arranged lovely but it was not much and really just OKAY
It was a 3 course meal and can’t remember the names but the avocado starter was fine , endive salad was good but not off the charts and the scallops were way too salty and you only get two with some carrots and stale carrot curls, please remove those. They were awful and also toss the fried glass noodles in the avocado dish. Stale as well and really not needed. Find something better and different. I don’t think I will return unless someone else is buying.

The food and experience was out of this world. Spectacular view and great food. My only complaint is that I pre-ordered dessert to be bought out for my girlfriend's birthday but somehow it got lost in the mix. So lets just say it got a little awkward when the server bought out the dessert menu.

I don’t know how to adequately put my experience into words. Everything was perfect. Down to the smallest detail, perfect. Our server was beyond amazing and attentive. The chef sent us a special finger-foods platter as a nice gesture. My water was refilled before I ever even got to finish it once. The food was amazing. Everything had a specific taste and was just so unique. You’d think small portions won’t fill you up, but no you’re wrong; I was bloated after. Sure it’s pricey, but it’s worth every single penny. I would recommend to everyone, whether it’s a business meal, family dinner, or you’re on a date. The whole experience was perfect. I’m definitely going back next weekend!!
