Everything was great until course #3. Neither of us were happy. My pork was dry and barely edible. His scallops were lovely, but the accompaniments not so much. Overall I'd go back, sit at the bar, enjoy the view and order from the bar menu.

I just love this place. From now on, every Friday, this is my treat to myself. To get a fantastic meal like this, in a fantastic place like this, at a fantastic price like this, it can't be beat. The views alone are worth the money. And special shout out to Kelsey! OMG, her sweetness and professionalism earned her quite a tip. She handled our office farewell in the spur of the moment, a 14 person ordering frenzy, and she did it with such style and grace, it made the send-off that much more enjoyable. Well done my friends! Oh, the steak was excellent, and even the burger was a treat! So light and tasty, and the fries are perfection!

Good but so arrogant that we were “encouraged” to leave our window table to make way for the next couple. Oh and there was an eggshell fragment in my date’s farm egg dish.

One goes there for the view, from the 71st floor, it is indeed special although the smog makes it relatively short during the day, a bit further during the night. The food is excellent, refined and inventive. The cocktails are also very creative like it is now fashionable in trendy spots. I had my lunch at the bar and the waiter was very nice and competent.
I really like this place and have to come again and again when I am in L.A. The music is a bit too loud for a business meeting, but if you are alone and don't need to talk much, that is a perfect place.

The view and ambience are the highlights of this restaurant. The food, on the other hand, is nothing to write home about. The presentation of the food is nice, however, the ingredients and flavor are mediocre. Nice place to experience just once. The overall value wasn't worth a return visit.

Yes...with extreme reservations. The view was, of course, exceptional. The food was good. The service was poor. They force an 18% service fee/tip on your bill and then don't serve you. They forgot our drinks and disappeared for long periods of time. The guy at the front desk host station was pretty rude as well. They didn't even allow us to be seated until our whole party arrived which made us miss our sunset view. They said everyone had to order at the same time, which I understand being a pre-fixe menu, but they could let you sit at your table that has the view at least and order drinks. The way the place is run is just a very bad system overall. I don't think we'll be going back.

Wonderful venue with exceptional food and a perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion. We had a terrific anniversary dinner and could actually hear each other while tasting the amazing farm egg and chorizo appetizer, exceptional hamachi, Waygu beef, pork loin and vegetarian special all pleased. Lots of options for each of three course in price fixed dinner that at $78 is worth it. Supplementals are pricy, however.

Service is way below the value, food was ok, salty over.
The only good thing about this place is the view but with the price you pay, there is many other much better place with better service you can go, will not recommend this place, and will not go again.

When I called in before arriving to the restaurant I was promised a window for my anniversary dinner. When I arrived I was seated next to a couple that took the window. Service was horrible and the person that brought the bill at the end was the cherry on top very rude. My tea was never brought to the table, food was not good for what I paid for 300.00, and service was very poor. I honestly felt like I should of got a refund for the horrible service, food that day. Or at least promised a better meal. I’ve been to this restaurant twice and always was Seated by the window and food and service was way better.

I visited 71Above to celebrate a friend’s promotion. The ambiance and view are amazing. I just wish it was a clearer LA DAY. The food was delicious and the service - awesome. Our server Bulmaro (I hope I spelled it correctly) kindly described every dish on the menu delectably causing me to want several meal choices. It's the perfect reason to return.
