                                      Excellent overall. Food portions were small, but I guess that's to be expected. Great for special occasions.

                                      Overall third experience was great. Host was accommodating to a window table. Quick service, attentive but not overbearing. Would definitely come back.

                                      A different place to gather and dine. Prix fixe with optional wine pairing. Good service. Overpriced as most LA places but a fair experience.

                                      Service was terrible. Had a reservation and they forgot to seat us…when they did, they gave us a crappy table and wait staff again forgot about us for a while. The food was horrible…ribs were way too salty. Everything else was nothing to write home about. Only thing worthwhile was the view, but we didn’t get a window table so we didn’t get to enjoy that.

                                      Experience exceptional with one exception. The host was filling in for a peer and the transition was not disclosed. We sat 20mins without drinks yet another host approached and assisted providing complimentary glass of wine ( that was a nice touch) while we waited for the drinks. Our main host approached the table sharing her identify after we expressed concern for the first host’s that experienced major sinus challenges. She then explained her peer was fine yet on the other side. 😯 Overall the hand was not well executed but we did truly enjoy and will return. Thank you

                                      The food wasn’t good , tasted and smelled bad! Servers were rude and made us wait several hours to serve each course! Took forever to seat us or come to us! I had to ask 7 times for a diet drink before they could bring it to me! Really disappointed!

                                      My Fiancé and I had a wonderful time at this place and the view and seating experience with the three course meal was fantastic! She was so glad I took her here for her birthday.

                                      Arrived after USC graduation to an amazing sunset view of Downtown Los Ángeles. Service was impeccable and we could not have made a wrong choice with ANYTHING on the menu. I HIGHLY recommend the wine pairing as well as any of the cocktails 🍸! Would definitely recommend for a celebration 🍾 or a fancy date 🥰.

                                      It’s my first time visiting 71above and it’s amazing. I was so happy when looking for a reservation I wasn’t finding the right one but I emailed the staff and I got what I was looking for. The dinner was delicious I enjoyed so my family. Thank you for your top service. It was excellent And I’ll definitely comeback to see you.

                                      It was not bad. Explaining what goes into food was not bad, but maybe they can work better on how to serve with more portion and better guidance in person as well.

                                      Only 1 item for a vegetarian, and it was a stuffed cabbage dish that wasn't that good. It was too bitter. For the price, there should have been a much better choice.

                                      Went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and we had such an amazing experience. The staff and servers were so polite, friendly, helpful, and respectful. Ambiance was amazing and the view was incredible! We loved all dishes but were slightly disappointed with the main course. The meat was cooked excellent however we had greater expectations regarding the flavor, considering the price and how well the appetizers were. Overall, incredible experience. Definitely recommending to others and will probably go again in the future :)

                                      The ambiance and service were the best parts of our experience. We were a party of three and unfortunately, no one was thrilled about their meal. For us, the food was just okay or slightly less than satisfactory. We were there for Mother’s Day and my brother and I took our mother. We both wished she’d enjoyed the food. The menu was fixed for the special occasion so I might try 71Above again to see if given a larger selection, I might enjoy the food more. I can’t say I would recommend this restaurant as I wasn’t satisfied with the food.

                                      The Food was definitely over priced for the price.

                                      The view was amazing. The food was great and the portions were just right if you’re not heavy I’m 170lbs so just right for me. It’s a must take for that special occasion.

                                      Took my mom to 71Above for mother's day and it was both our first time dining there. Service, food, and ambience/scenery was impeccable. We got there shortly before golden hour (aka as the sun sets) which made it even more beautiful. Definitely worth it in every sense of the word. Will definitely come again.
