Unfortunately we didn’t get a window seat which makes the experience not worth the cost. The food is good, nothing that was absurdly outstanding. Service was standard for a place like this and they will automatically charge 18%. I would try this place once but I do not see myself going back in the future.

First time being at this restaurant was amazing experience with the view and staff was outstanding. Edge table had an amazing view of downtown LA and had an overview of staple center and was able to see the Sofi. We got here 5:15pm and got the see the sunset and enjoy the night lights.

Super slow service, our server forgot one of our appetisers, she was taking care of a lot of tables, you would think she would have more help considering the prices and the location the view is spectacular but there’s many places to go visit so probably won’t be going back.

Wonderful 1st time experience. We went to celebrate 3 birthdays. They congratulated us, and gave us complimentary champagne. Our service team was super respectful, nice, and descriptive. They adjusted quickly when explaining some dishes and drinks in Spanish. Very attentive and the view was amazing.

Excellent atmosphere, fine service, but the food was bland and the portions were small and overpriced. The wine pairing was all hype and no real quality or value. $48 for 3 glasses of questionable quality.

The view is great of course and the food is really good too. The portions are modest, but it is great! Depends on your preference, but I liked it a lot. It is quite pricey, but it is a great place for a special occasion or a special evening!

71 above is an amazing experience, I highly encourage anyone here in LA to visit this hidden gem. I had the esteemed pleasure of having Manolo as my server on my recent visit to 71Above. I came with my partner and Manolo really made us feel like this experience was worth it. Upon coming into the restaurant I requested a window seat, unfortunately, none were available at the time. As soon as a window seat became available Manalo effortlessly transitioned us over . The seat change and pure attention to detail really MADE our date so again, huge shout out to our server hope to see you again :) Between the amazing views and stellar service, I can't imagine a better place to begin frequenting in DTLA .
The food is amazing I strongly recommend the crispy octopus (to die for ) , along with the chicken entree. Both were amazing and very experimental for me. Definitely a great place to go if you're looking to explore and widen your palette. I also STRONGLY recommend the wine pairing. For less than $50 you get a wine pairing for each course which has really gotten me more interested in wines! The pairings are spot on.

It was my first time going to 71 but from what I was told it was exactly as expected. The ambiance was great, it felt very private and exclusive although it was quite full. The service was great, initially there was a minor lag getting our first drinks but everything else after was great. My date and I will definitely be returning here for our anniversary

Came here for my birthday dinner on a little get away w my husband. The food was okay, only thing that was a bit alarming is they don’t tell you that they are going to charge you a extra 50 in taxes and “gratitude” . Our bill was 200 and it bumped it up to almost to 260 . the view was gorgeous though . It was a great experience to say you went to 71Above . I wouldn’t go back tho but I’ll recommend for the experience,

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my experience here. The staff was warm, professional, and accommodating. My fiancé doesn’t eat with silverware, but that didn’t stop our waiter, Lawrence, from searching all over for plastic wear. He made sure we were comfortable with the food choices and explained exactly how the meals were prepared and consisted of. Lawrence provided great conversation and checked on us exactly the right amount of times. The food was exceptional and worth every penny. The atmosphere was romantic and upscale. We enjoyed the city review.

Never a disappointment when I come to 71Above! This time was better than the last time I came here. I loved how they seated us by the window, didn’t even have to ask for it. It was my friends birthday and it was her first time being there, she was SOOO happy with her experience at 71Above! I am definitely coming back. The customer service was amazing, the food was immaculate & the view. The drinks were perfect! I am a very happy customer. Will be coming back ❤️
