    We celebrated our 7th anniversary. Great place. Only wish if we can get the window seated. I booked on OpenTable 3 months in advance and still couldn’t get a window seat. While other people booked a few weeks in advance and gotten the window seating I find it very unfair. Overall food and services are great but booking in advance doesn’t get any priority.

    Luna de Miel. El lugar es increible. La comida más bien mediocre. Jazmín nos atendió excelente. Nos hubiera gustado que nos pregunte si queriamos incluir 18% de propina, en vez de incluirla por su propia decision. Saludos

    Food was delicious! Had the lobster, ribeye, young chicken , raspberry and chocolate dessert. But I was very disappointed in the service! Order bread as a starter and they forgot our food. Had to grab someone walking by to get a 2nd round of drinks. Made a reservation for my wife’s 50th birthday and all they put on the dish was a single 5 cent candle. Nothing special at all. For spending over $350 for dinner for two I had much better service at Dennys restaurant. Not sure if I will go back again. Food was delicious but to many options in Downtown with much better service and food just as good.

    I was honestly disappointed in the food. The pork had NO flavor. They added a sauce to it at the table but didn't season it before cooking and the sauce wasn't enough/left at the table. I also paid extra for the cheese plate and was extremely disappointed. I was expecting a charcuterie board, and it came with crunchy to the point of seemingly stale bread and cheeses that I only ate because the meal total was $300 and I wasn't about to waste money but didn't like. I also wasn't expecting a surcharge to be added, and would have tipped differently which was upsetting because it made my bill seem $50higher than I was expecting (before adding a tip) but I told they would automatically charge for that unhealthy I saw it on the receipt. It also took 3 elevators to get to, and even though there was a "dress code" it was CLEARLY not enforced as there were multiple people in athletic gear.

    Beautiful view but the food was extremely average. Definitely not worth the price. Service was excellent. Building entrance was going through reconstruction so it took away a little bit of the exclusivity of our overall experience.

    I can’t say enough about our experience at 71 Above! We were in LA to celebrate our 30th anniversary, and chose to celebrate here. We had a breathtaking window table, where we got to enjoy the sunset and the beauty of LA after dark. Our service was excellent, and they gave us a candle in our dessert as well as a free glass of wine. The food was outstanding as well! Would definitely return next time we come to town!

    My glasses were stolen or thrown away by staff right off the table no longer 3-5 min after I walked away . I immediately went back to table and they were gone . Management showed no concern . I have contacted the restaurant several times but no one has responded to my emails and or voicemail messages . These glasses were prescribed by my optometrist and must be replaced .
