It was a great experience. Great views and great service. Upper scale pricing with upper scale service. Octopus and scallops were amazing. The dishes were very well paired. Hollywood drink (jalepeno vodka) was on point too. My fiancé loved the West Hollywood one

This was one of the best experiences. The waitress was very knowledgeable of each dish and helped our table navigate through allergies and diet restrictions while being super patient. Only trouble was the parking situation, went into the incorrect lot at City National Plaza. Recommend valet for $10

Since COVID cancelled this years Emmy Governors Ball, a bunch of us got together to celebrate our nominations at 71 Above! The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and overall, it was an excellent night! Only one of us went home with the virtual trophy, but we ALL felt like winners at 71 Above!

It was a great experience dinning at this place. You got a great view with a excetional food and service. I thought their three course menu was perfect. It doesn’t leave you too full or feeling hungry afterward. Wine pairing was excellent also.
The only comments about the food I have was that, I thought the appetizer was cut above the main course. Overall, it was a great experience especially if you are with someone special. Worth the price.

Waiter dropped sauce by my feet. Took my girlfriends napkin and mine to wipe up the mess. Took 10 minutes to bring new ones. Had to get up twice to pour my girlfriend more wine. A bit disappointed with service with a meal over $ 500.

This is my 4th time at this place. Always we go here for special occasions. Can’t beat Service, ambiance and whole experience.
But this time after pandemic, I disappointed with food. I like their old style small meal course. specially me being vegetarian, always had good choice and flavors were amazing in past.
This time it was salad, pasta and cauliflower were in choices, but none of course I found wow factor. Infect cold mouth freshener soup was “wow”. Wish I could have that more. My husband had non vegetarian choice but he did not get that wow factor either.
Hoping they make changes in their menu as I love this place.

Highest view in Downtown Los Angeles. Pre-fix menu. Food was great and presented well. Sunset views are difficult if you are facing west. Window tables are private, but not as exciting as you would think. Standard tables are better for groups over 2. Pricey for the overall experience.

My wife & I spent our 9th Anniversary here, we had the 3 course. She kept to the awesome cocktail Rebecca whipped up which was fantastic & I went with the wine pairing. We always sit at the bar, seats #2 & #3 - for me, it's the best seat in the house despite it being at the bar as I can look west into the setting sun & enjoy the best seats DTLA has to offer. The Octopus was fantastic, the Wagyu was melt in your mouth cooked to perfection & paired with charred broccolini that didn't disappoint & the desert was excellent. Paired with wines from the gifted sommelier (my apologies .. forget her name.. too much wine? haha) the Chef's creations danced off my tongue as the flavors melted into my body, amazing.. just amazing. Rebecca is another shining facet as to why 71 Above will always hold a special place in our hearts - We'll be back!!

When we first arrived, the lady at the lobby was a bit rude in getting us directions on how to take the elevator up for the restaurant, but once we got up-it’s like we forgot all about it. The ambiance and overall feel of this place is special! The view is amazing. In addition-we got seated at the perfect table next to the view and my friends enjoyed it as well. The servers were amazing in telling us about each course and offering us anything we might need. The food is impeccable and I cannot wait to come back ❤️

Place was beautiful and very peaceful, great views. Seating was quick, however, they sat a 2 person party at a giant table for 6… far from the views. The waiters were very informative, not pushy but it felt like it took a long time in between courses. The food was good looking and decent portion sizes, filled us up, but it was over powered by sauces and what tasted like zest and vinegar. I ate only protein as the vegetables were just to much. A little too fancy for my pallet. A nice lady who was walking around was extremely friendly, so much so we found ourselves engulfed in convo with her and she made the night great. Overall, good experience.

When you enter the lobby of this icy tower, it’s certainly a bit intimidating BUT we got welcomed very warmly.

We arrived 20 min early to our reservation and got immediately seated. The soundtrack was so awesome + the sound system in the restaurant is so pleasant on the ears, I never felt it ever was loud.

Every single dish from the caviar, to the chicken, to the lemon dessert was an A+.

My husband and I went with the hopes of celebrating my 39th birthday enjoyably. Instead we were seated next to a loud table of four that was yelling, swearing, and playing music loudly on their phone as well as loudly calling people on speaker phone. At no point did anyone from the restaurant address the behavior or even apologize to the other guests for their disruptiveness. It’s a beautiful view but if you’re looking for an elegant atmosphere and amazing food look elsewhere.

We were the second couple to check in when they opened at 5pm. Then we were the last couple to be seated and all the window seats were gone. Either they tipped the manager or they did something I was not aware of. Very disappointing. They also have a pre-set menu which was average but ok. However, the service was lacking. I had to ask the server to clear our plates after the second course which was sitting for 20 minutes. Lastly the desert was below average at best.
