Overall experience was good. We went to 71 above to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. I don’t think I will be going there for special occasions. They didn’t do anything for him. The host knew it was his birthday and I expected a candle to come out with the dessert we ordered but nothing came out.

Dinner and service was great, the only thing I have a problem with is not getting a window seat after I made reservations months prior.

The quality of steak was really bad...pork chop was not flavored enough to take away the pork smell.

Spectacular view. Exquisite food. Impeccable service. A special occasion restaurant. Two course prix fixe menu for lunch has lots of selections and is a pretty good bargain, too. Will return.

Unfortunately food was only average. Among three people in our party ordering different items we tried almost entire prefix menu. Nothing horrible, but nothing stands out. The presentation of matcha dessert was surprisingly unappetizing - green puree looking like baby food. I will not go back.

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. I pride myself on being a "foody".....this restaurant any and all expectations. The room, the view, the food, the service, the wine list.......above and beyond! I recommend this eatery as one of the best!

The door man (unaffiliated with 71 above) was very very rude. It would be my advice to 71 above to have some input into the hiring of the doorman downstairs. Someone with a hospitality background. He soured my whole experience unfortunately.

A big disappointment that even with a 3 week reservation to celebrate a birthday with a window table, they weren't able to accommodate.
Nice dinner and nice service, but they should have been more thoughtful.

Service was good once we were seated. We waited 30 minutes for a table that was available the moment we checked in. Hostess skipped us in order and acknowledged the mistake as we were being seated.

Food was average. Scallops and ribeye were too salty and sent back. Meal was not memorable. The caviar oyster app was good as was the dessert, stone fruit with pear ice cream.

Recommend coming for the view and apps + drink. Not worth sitting down for a full meal.

Went on a date at 71Above and it was very nice. They asked what the occasion was and brought us a glass of sweet wine. Our host was super attentive and very friendly. As each course was brought out they explained to us what was in it and made sure our table was always clean. The food was absolutely amazing, including the house made bread and butter that is brought out. Would definitely recommend and would go back again even though it is on the pricey side. You get what you pay for and it’s delicious.

The view is also incredible with tinted windows that slowly fade as it gets darker. Super friendly staff and great ambiance all around.

Spectacular view and good service. The food, although good enough, is not great, and at these prices, one should demand great food. The value simply isn't there. One is paying for the view. Great ambiance, professional service. Food is good. For the price, however, better food can be found in this city at half the price. It's an experience restaurant, I guess. (I did notice everyone around us was there for an anniversary or birthday.)

The restaurant is excellent. I think the website could improve their instruction about how to reserve the window seat correctly. That would be helpful for customers to make an accurate reservation!

What would have been a great anniversary experience, was thwarted early by the front receptionist who didn't seem happy or welcoming. She shuffled us to a poor table, calling out impersonal table # options to her helper that felt cold and obviously careless of my call into the restaurant over the weekend to tell them of our event and desire for a West facing window at sunset (which was told to me would not be a problem when I booked). After complaining of the table given (East facing and next to kitchen with noise and waiters hanging out), we were given a somewhat better option (why not present us that earlier?) The food courses started out wonderful with an intro small bite platter (excellent), 1st course egg dish and oysters (both truly fantastic), 2nd courses steak tartare (flavorless) and prawns (pretty good, but not great) and finally the main course dishes of ribeye (too smothered in sauce) and chicken (good, but nothing special). The cocktails were quite nice and I have to say all of the staff, besides the reception girl were truly excellent. Our waiter was genuinely strong and felt right for the price point. Overall, it was a good meal marred by a negative introduction that frankly ruined the experience and energy.
