We went for our anniversary. We had requested a window table awhile ago, but this was not honored. It’s frustrating to go back time and time again only to be sat in the middle of the restaurant. I guess we haven’t figured out who you have to pay off or murder to get the better table. The staff were friendly about our anniversary, they even brought glasses of sparkling rosé to celebrate. The staff is attentive and there are many of them, my complaint is that when they bring the courses they often rush through what you’re eating and the presentation. We are young-ish, without comprehension or hearing problems and had to ask several times for clarification. Otherwise they are great. The meal course offerings are good; my husband and I agreed that the second course was the best. That in alone was a little disappointing, as my husband ordered the waygu beef (a specialty and an up charge) which he described as good, but somewhat fatty. He reported he would not order it again. I had the mushroom dish and I would not recommend it; it feels a little like tough mushroom steaks with avocado purée in cream of mushroom soup, which is something to be avoided for sure. Sadly, it’s the only vegetarian option as the third course. That being said, the tomato first course is good. The the pasta and carrot second courses are even better, and the drink and wine menus are also very impressive. Don’t mistake my disappointment with tonight’s third course as overall distaste for this restaurant— we have been here before and enjoyed a full range of cuisine from oysters, sun chokes, beets, steak, and sushi - tonight’s entree menu just didn’t seem to be consistent with the level we had come to expect. I think given the disappointment with the food and the seating, I don’t think we will be back. Your views can’t be beat, 71 Above, but the overall experience can.

Portion sizes are adequate for the level of dining. Some dishes however come across as disjointed with the flavors across the plate not aligning. Service was spotty, our table was left to pour our own wine on multiple occasions. Although the restaurant had just switched to the summer menu, the server had not taken the time to memorize it. When we had questions about certain dishes, she read directly from a copy of the menu which she was carrying. One of the members of our party is pregnant which we indicated ahead of time when making the reservation. Our server was unaware prior to our arrival and upon being told was unable to make proper suggestions as to what dish accommodations could be made.

We were celebrating both an anniversary and a birthday and were thankful to the restaurant for bringing out sparkling rose as well as a mocktail for the pregnant member of our party.

Overall, the ambiance was incredible and we had a fun night but we don’t think we’ll be returning to celebrate again.

A very good place to bring a client or out of town visitor for the spectacular view.
But also very good for regular lunches.
Set menu with two groups of choices provide wide alternatives. Lunch prices are very reasonable. The personnel are professional, prompt and kind.
Getting up to 71st floor involves changing elevators en route but it goes very smoothly. I have been there a few times in July 2019 and hope to return often.

I have to say that we were a little disappointed in the dinner we had at 71above. When we arrived, we were told that we would have to vacate the table by 9:00 for another party. That would be ok except that the rest of the wait staff was not informed. The service was, at best leasurely. We were just not happy with the food at all. Some of it tasted like dirt. Yuck

The restaurant itself is very nicely designed and obviously the views are outstanding. The cocktails were well-made and definitely a highlight. However, and despite the menu having plenty of delicious-sounding options, none of the six courses (three-course meal x 2 people) were in any way excellent. The best was the garlic and potato soup that my wife started with; everything else was just okay. Not terrible, but just okay, which isn't acceptable considering the $82/person price for the three courses.

I went to this restaurant for the first time last night, and it has now become on of my favorite restaurants in L. A. We first went to the bar drinks and appetizers, and everything we had was delicious! I especially recommend the bacon-wrapped dates.
Dinner was equally wonderful. The Japanese rib-eye is probably the best steak I’ve ever had. My two friends were equally impressed, and we vowed to return here again. It’s expensive, but well worth it, and view is probably the best in town!

overpriced for what it is. For what you're paying, the service could have been better. We had to keep reminding our server that we wanted a drink even when leaving the empty glass by the side of the table, she would just pass by and not acknowledge it. Overall, the food was delicious, service was so so, and very expensive.

I really enjoyed my meal at 71Above. The tables are arranged around the outer ring of the floor so almost every table has a spectacular view. We were lucky enough to be seated in a booth with a view of downtown Los Angeles behind us and the open kitchen in front of us. The meal is obviously very pricey but it was one of the best prix fixe menus I've ever had. You choose from about 6-8 different choices for three savory courses with an additional menu and charge for dessert. Our selections were wonderful, the entrees were well sized, and I really enjoyed my cocktails. My husband had the wine pairing, although his last pour was a bit late (he received it about 10 minutes after we got our third course), it was fun and decadent to have the sommeliere pick wines to compliment his specific chosen plate. All in all, I would love to come back and will keep this place in mind if I want to offer someone the best of LA.

I just love this place. From now on, every Friday, this is my treat to myself. To get a fantastic meal like this, in a fantastic place like this, at a fantastic price like this, it can't be beat. The views alone are worth the money. And special shout out to Kelsey! OMG, her sweetness and professionalism earned her quite a tip. She handled our office farewell in the spur of the moment, a 14 person ordering frenzy, and she did it with such style and grace, it made the send-off that much more enjoyable. Well done my friends! Oh, the steak was excellent, and even the burger was a treat! So light and tasty, and the fries are perfection!

One goes there for the view, from the 71st floor, it is indeed special although the smog makes it relatively short during the day, a bit further during the night. The food is excellent, refined and inventive. The cocktails are also very creative like it is now fashionable in trendy spots. I had my lunch at the bar and the waiter was very nice and competent.
I really like this place and have to come again and again when I am in L.A. The music is a bit too loud for a business meeting, but if you are alone and don't need to talk much, that is a perfect place.
