First time having dinner at 71Above, the ambience was great. Dress code isn't super fancy, but we decided to dress up for our anniversary. Our server Jesse was delightful, efficient, and well-mannered! We did not get a window table like we had hoped, but if we go back, i would definitely insist on getting a window table - sort of the main reason for going there is the view. Super extensive wine list, which is great!

We are celebrating our 30 years anniversary, April first but because of the pandemic, we wait until the restaurant opens again, let me tell you the wait was totally worth it, our waiter Manolo was excellent, their menu is kind of different, so Manolo explained every dish, my husband is allergic to mushrooms, so Manolo took the time to explain which were the best dishes for him, the receptionist was very friendly professional, the 2 bartenders were so friendly, drinks were exquisite, foods is great, the view is incredible, l show pictures to my kids, my daughter wants to go and have a dinner, because she’s thinking of celebrating her 15th birthday there with a few friends and family, well overall 71 above overcame any expectations l had, Thank you so much and l hope see you soon. Blessings.

The overall experience is good. The restaurant would not assign us a table by the window with the best view even upon making the request and greg are not very busy on the weekday night. The food potion is small for dinner. Other than that the view is obviously the biggest draw.

71 Above is a wonderful dining space with fantastic view of Los Angeles. A very inventive menu excites your taste buds and a knowledgeable staff ensures your meal will be a memorable one!

Before dinner, we visited the bar for excellent, inventive drinks. The staff is very welcoming ensuring your experience a very warm one.

This is our second visit to 71 Above and each visit is better than the first.

We are looking forward to our next dining experience !

Our dinner experience was phenomenal! (We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and 71Above was certainly special) The food was incredibly delicious--especially the oyster appetizer (we could easily have eaten a dozen!) and grilled octopus. Adding to the experience was the extremely charming service headed by Emily and her attentive team! Will definitely add 71Above to our list of Special Places to dine in LA.

From the ambiance to the food, the restaurant was absolutely amazing. The food was incredible, Japanes Wagyu just melts in your mouth. Romantic setting for intimate dinners and dinner dates with your significant other. Most definitely one of my favorite restaurants I've been to in LA county. We will be coming back very often.

The customer service from the manager Morhan ( whatever) his name is) and the African American hostess was terrible just like him. Sadly, as a manager, you should lead my example. Will not be returning there just because of these two people that need to go back to get some additional training with their poor customer service skills. I am a business owner and I would never allow any of my employees to treat the customers with such poor customer service and disrespect. I’ve been to this restaurant several times and never experience such terrible service like we did this past time. You just lost a good customer and will not refer my friends and family to this place. Thanks for ruining our special occasion!

Beutiful view. We felt like be in a movie...
For table, three item course menu for each person only. We were not much hungry, so that moved to bar area and had cocktail and appetizer. Menu, service, and atmosphere... we enjoyed.

Everything was great; food, service and ambiance. Only thing that bugged me and my boyfriend was the seating. I told them three weeks in advance that I was going to be celebrating an anniversary with my boyfriend and asked if they could put us by a window. Instead of putting us by the window they put us right next to a family table. Not only did we not get a window seat, we didn’t even get the privacy of being seated away from a large party. Disappointed in the company’s planning.

The view was nice and the service was good. But the menu was limited and food didn't taste good with very small portions. For that price of $85 per person, we can get much better food at other high-end restaurants.
