The experience of arriving to the restaurant was pretty cool. After checking in at the ground floor desk, we rode 2 separate elevators to the 71st floor. We were shown to our window table (!!) , and after a few minutes, were greeted by our server. He explained the menu and then left, without asking if we wanted cocktails. No problem, since we were entralled with the view and busy with photos. It took several more minutes for him to return and take our order for drinks.

The food was phenomenal! From start to finish, flavors exploded in our mouths! Hats off to the chef and kitchen staff! A truely delightful meal.

We felt rushed, as they constantly seemed to wanted to clear our plates before we finished. Once we spoke to a manager, that was resolved.

This is an expensive dinner, but it is an experience, not just a meal. Be prepared, there is an 18% service charge that is automatically added to your bill. This is NOT considered the gratuity.

BEWARE: requires 3 course meal for you to sit at a table with a view. Manager was very rude in “escorting” us to the bar after we were unaware we needed to spend $85 for 3 course meal atop our drinks at 10 pm reservation. Dessert was sub par.

Great dining experience - everyone was super welcoming and attentive.

The view was amazing!

The servers made it a point to wish my daughter a Happy Birthday and that was much appreciated :)

The food and drinks were made well and very tasty.

The only negative was the 2 oz Wagyu plate for an extra $65- was not worth the extra money.

The food menu they had was different from the online menu they sent. The chicken and ribeye didn’t have any wow factor. Also the ribeye is sweet which is something I wish I was told. Strawberry dessert was amazing. The service and ambience was unforgettable. I cannot say the same about the food

It was a great experience. Great views and great service. Upper scale pricing with upper scale service. Octopus and scallops were amazing. The dishes were very well paired. Hollywood drink (jalepeno vodka) was on point too. My fiancé loved the West Hollywood one

This was one of the best experiences. The waitress was very knowledgeable of each dish and helped our table navigate through allergies and diet restrictions while being super patient. Only trouble was the parking situation, went into the incorrect lot at City National Plaza. Recommend valet for $10

Since COVID cancelled this years Emmy Governors Ball, a bunch of us got together to celebrate our nominations at 71 Above! The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and overall, it was an excellent night! Only one of us went home with the virtual trophy, but we ALL felt like winners at 71 Above!

It was a great experience dinning at this place. You got a great view with a excetional food and service. I thought their three course menu was perfect. It doesn’t leave you too full or feeling hungry afterward. Wine pairing was excellent also.
The only comments about the food I have was that, I thought the appetizer was cut above the main course. Overall, it was a great experience especially if you are with someone special. Worth the price.

Waiter dropped sauce by my feet. Took my girlfriends napkin and mine to wipe up the mess. Took 10 minutes to bring new ones. Had to get up twice to pour my girlfriend more wine. A bit disappointed with service with a meal over $ 500.

This is my 4th time at this place. Always we go here for special occasions. Can’t beat Service, ambiance and whole experience.
But this time after pandemic, I disappointed with food. I like their old style small meal course. specially me being vegetarian, always had good choice and flavors were amazing in past.
This time it was salad, pasta and cauliflower were in choices, but none of course I found wow factor. Infect cold mouth freshener soup was “wow”. Wish I could have that more. My husband had non vegetarian choice but he did not get that wow factor either.
Hoping they make changes in their menu as I love this place.

Highest view in Downtown Los Angeles. Pre-fix menu. Food was great and presented well. Sunset views are difficult if you are facing west. Window tables are private, but not as exciting as you would think. Standard tables are better for groups over 2. Pricey for the overall experience.
