The setting, food, service, and view live up to expectations. The waiter was very helpful. He was actually better than the last waiter we had the last time I was here. I look forward to the next time...

The food was salty and the hostess neglected to seat my business guest with me, so that we each thought the other was running late for over 15 minutes. I think the restaurant is beautiful and the servers were great, but it is overpriced. Will not return for a meal but perhaps for drinks.

The main reason to go to 71 Above is the view. The view is simply spectacular. We waited an extra 30 minutes to get a window table and it was worth it. We came at night and it is magical. The menu is confusing and uses endless terms that most people would not understand. The food was interesting but not particularly memorable. It is a fixed price three-course dinner. I had scallops for my entrée. I felt two scallops was awfully skimpy given the price. It is essentially an expense account restaurant. The service was impeccable but I would have trouble justifying the price and going back.

I did not care for the 18% “service charge” in addition to the standard gratuity. I basically ended up paying a 38% tip. The view was fantastic and the food was good, but not THAT good. The cook on my steak was proper, but it was cold when it got to my table.

I would expect a restaurant on the top of a skyscraper to be high quality, but this one was outstanding-- totally above and beyond. Unique and delicious gourmet cuisine, impeccable service, and great ambiance. The view was amazing but took a backseat to the restaurant experience itself. Our server Sheree was exceptionally good. It always seems like it's a challenge to receive extraordinary service while still being friendly and natural. Sheree mastered this, and she did it all in a seemingly effortless way. I'm sure everyone working here is great, but I'll be requesting Sheree! I've lived in DTLA for seven years and this was my first time to 71Above, and now I'll be a regular. Really, really well done!

Amazing views with good to match. It is expensive, but definitely worth it for the most part. Had the Wagyu beer for an additional price over the price fix and was outstanding. Oysters and octopus were pretty good too.

The place is not what I expected. The food was not that good the steak I ordered is tough. We served a window table and gave us the middle one. We were on the waiting list for the window table once it’s opens up. We were there until from 7:30pm until 10pm to find out we were not on the waitlist. Only when we complained that’s when they transferred us. Anyway I’m not coming back here anymore.

Great food with obviously incredible views. The chef did an incredible job with the three courses I selected: tomato, honey nut squash & cauliflower. The presentation was amazing and tastes were so eclectic I felt like I was in heaven. I wish there was a designated area for photos.

Service seemed off this night. I have been several times before and would have rated 5 star but this time our waters were not refilled without us having to request. I had to ask for silverware as they removed it with a fish but did not replace. Food was just ok and didn’t feel our server had much enthusiasm and did not check on us much.

Extremely upscale, captivating city views with comfortably designed dining areas. The staff were organized and waiters were up to standard. Menu was filled with superb tasting items. Portions are on the smaller size. The cost to eat here is priced on the high end as expected. I would recommend this place if you can afford it. I will go again.

The food is good, the place is gorgeous, but service seriously is really poor , 3 hours waiting for 3 course menu is unacceptable, after this time you lost the appetite and will not feel the desire to go back any more.... For been one of the best restaurants we of course expected what we pay for including service without mentioning the food.
