    The food was excellent from beginning to end, as were the wine pairings. But table service was very slow, with a glass of wine arriving 30 minutes after we arrived. We were seated in a small area away from the main dining area, and we often felt forgotten by the servers as they dealt with the busier area. Having said that, we will return for another try, given the quality of the food,

    This place is amazing. All the staff and that we interacted with was super friendly. We went to celebrate a birthday and I loved how everyone acknowledged that. Jazmin was our waitress and she was so kind and friendly. Her service truly enhanced our experience so much. Can’t wait to go back here.

    The experience, food and service were all really great. Came here for my girlfriend’s birthday dinner and were able to get a window seat. The 3 courses we got were all excellent: Starters: Tuna Crudo,Bucatini Pasta Mains: Chicken, Ribeye Dessert: Carrot Granita, Olive Cake Get the bread service! We started with a couple margaritas but I would probably skip them next time. Their wine list seems pretty extensive and seems it would go better with their food. Also dinner is $100 for 3 courses and an 18% gratuity is added on to the bill fyi. (Or you can just go to the bar) All this is fair considering you’re paying for a really nice setting, friendly service and great food. Originally heard some reviews that the food wasn’t great and we were just paying for the view. After going, I don’t think that’s the case. I would definitely come here again for a special occasion.

    The 1st 2 times were amazing. This time, NO. They changed their menu for the worst. We knew what we were getting into when it came to their minimum of 3 course meal each. We were also told that choosing their A5 filet would cost us extra. We did not know how much more. An EXTRA $110. NONE of the food items were worth their price, especially the steak. We’ve had really good steaks (Morton and Burboun steakhouse style). This one was NOT worth that ridiculous price. Again, this $110 was on top of what we already paid for one entree . I was not impressed by anything (the drinks were really good). The bread was good, too. They must have changed the chef. That’s a shame. The food choices were limited and not good. Our total was $474.21: 2 drinks, one sparkling water, 2 three course meals, 2 coffees. One bread, A5 filet. 18% gratuity (already added to the bill) and tax.

    Loved it overall, but there’s a need for some maintenance (compass at our table was broken, some painting needed, etc). Immaterial really but you don’t expect these things to be overlooked. Also, a little softening of the space could really help (examples might include flowers on the table or arrangements at the bar, seat pads on wood chairs). Again, not critical but small things make a big difference especially at this price-point. Service and food were great, and I do want to emphasize that. Views are amazing. Just wanted to mention some small items for improvement that I think could make an outsized difference in the overall experience.

    Except for getting stuck at a table in front of the kitchen, this was an awesome experience. I really enjoyed each dish as well as the wine pairings. Keep in mind that the menu on their website will not always be current. For example the prawn first plate I had is not listed and all the deserts were different. I get the sense that whatever menu they have the night you visit will have something for you. You definitely want to make use of the valet parking... self park is a hassle. I am already thinking of another special occasion to return to 71Above.

    Food was amazing! Service could’ve been a little better. Our greeter was slightly rude. I asked her if the restaurant had “Aqua Panna” and she responded with “umm I don’t know, I’ll bring what we have.” Besides that, food and ambiance was amazing!

    On our first wedding anniversary, my husband and I visited a restaurant for the first time. We ordered a three-course meal and waited for an hour for our first dish. We had to inquire about the delay, and the manager removed the first course from our bill while the chef provided a complimentary side dish. Despite the restaurant not appearing busy, the servers did not check on our table. As a result, we felt the automatic 18% gratuity tip was unwarranted, especially considering the salty food

    Our servers are really nice and helpful. Foods overall are good. However, for the 1st course the farm salad was too sour and the prawns were a little bit salty. But the asparagus and octopus were delicious. For our 2nd course, wagyu beef was good. Ribeye was disappointing, because my order was over cooked not medium rare and a bit chewy for some reason… For our 3 course, desserts were pretty good. Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream was good and the almonds cake was the best.

    We had a wonderful view of the city skyline. The food was delicious . The service was exceptional and the waiter was kind and informative. The chefs sent us special things to try which was amazing. The only issue we had was where we were seated. I had a requested a table but it couldn’t happen. We sat at a counter with awesome views but behind us was the service door so when my wife and I took photos, the doors were opening and closing due to staff going in and out to serve the customers. Overall it was a great experience to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We will go back to the bar area soon which caught our attention as we were leaving. Thank you 71 Above for the great food and wine!

    My son went with his girlfriend for their one year anniversary and we're seated at a window, regular table not bar. It was absolutely spectacular and very special. The food was excellent and this is definitely a great place for a special occasion. I like the prix fixe menu because you know what you're getting into (as far as cost) before you even arrive. There were lots of menu choices including fish and seafood.
