AMAZINGGGGG!!!! Where do i begin lol
I know its expensive but i think this might be my favorite restaurant in LA and so much more worth it than some Hollywood instagrammable spots.
First of all, the view is immaculate but i think thats why ppl go here for, so dont need to rave about it.
Service was amazingggg we asked window seats and we got them . So so accommodating all along. Drinks are super super good and strong!! The food is amazing too. It just wasnt dishes that i personally liked, but really good ingredients and good quality. I recommend the octopus app and cheese plate for desert. And the vibe and music was amazinggggghh.
I think its so so so worth the price!!!! Thank you for an amazing experience! <3

Excellent service! The hostess, bar tender, waiters, everyone was so welcoming and friendly, simply love it! I ordered a painkiller (with mezcal), delicious that I ordered a second. The food was the right amount and very well spaced in times. And something that I absolutely enjoyed was the music volume, no to high (loud) and not too low. I was perfectly able to hear and talk without raising my voice.
Definitely going back.
Of course the view is amazing!

I would like to give compliments to Manolo in particular. It was sooo nice to have him as our server. Not only did he recommend the short ribs that were amazing!!!!! But he took it upon himself to escort us down to the 69th floor to accommodate us with a spectacular view for the sunset. He is truly an example to follow and we will be returning. Mostly for the food and his service. Thank you again Manolo!

It was my husband’s birthday and I wrote about it in my reservation . Nothing special was offered, no candle, no cake or cocktail . I left the dinner feeling hungry , small portion on plates . The only good thing is the view of the city ! No more !

First time having dinner at 71Above, the ambience was great. Dress code isn't super fancy, but we decided to dress up for our anniversary. Our server Jesse was delightful, efficient, and well-mannered! We did not get a window table like we had hoped, but if we go back, i would definitely insist on getting a window table - sort of the main reason for going there is the view. Super extensive wine list, which is great!

We are celebrating our 30 years anniversary, April first but because of the pandemic, we wait until the restaurant opens again, let me tell you the wait was totally worth it, our waiter Manolo was excellent, their menu is kind of different, so Manolo explained every dish, my husband is allergic to mushrooms, so Manolo took the time to explain which were the best dishes for him, the receptionist was very friendly professional, the 2 bartenders were so friendly, drinks were exquisite, foods is great, the view is incredible, l show pictures to my kids, my daughter wants to go and have a dinner, because she’s thinking of celebrating her 15th birthday there with a few friends and family, well overall 71 above overcame any expectations l had, Thank you so much and l hope see you soon. Blessings.

The overall experience is good. The restaurant would not assign us a table by the window with the best view even upon making the request and greg are not very busy on the weekday night. The food potion is small for dinner. Other than that the view is obviously the biggest draw.

71 Above is a wonderful dining space with fantastic view of Los Angeles. A very inventive menu excites your taste buds and a knowledgeable staff ensures your meal will be a memorable one!

Before dinner, we visited the bar for excellent, inventive drinks. The staff is very welcoming ensuring your experience a very warm one.

This is our second visit to 71 Above and each visit is better than the first.

We are looking forward to our next dining experience !

Our dinner experience was phenomenal! (We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and 71Above was certainly special) The food was incredibly delicious--especially the oyster appetizer (we could easily have eaten a dozen!) and grilled octopus. Adding to the experience was the extremely charming service headed by Emily and her attentive team! Will definitely add 71Above to our list of Special Places to dine in LA.
