    Being an urban-dwelling native of big cities, I seek out good restaurants on high floors. For Downtown Los Angeles, 71 Above is the best. Dining at 1100 feet above the glittering lights, even on an overcast evening, is a magical experience. Add to it the warm wood, massive windows, glass bottles of wine and shelving, and you truly are transported to an elevated experience. The lobby is comfortable and elegant, with windows and lights soaring overhead. The receptionist confirms your reservation on this level and you don't need to be concerned about it when you take the elevators to the top. Everyone was smiling and welcoming. On that subject, I want to sincerely thank Annie and the staff for the special accommodations they made per my advance requests. I just had to ask once and everything was taken care of wordless- and seamlessly thereafter. Our main server, Bulmaro, was extremely friendly and efficient as were all the people that came to the table to either bring us things or explain the unique menu. The lighting made it challenging to take pictures of the beautiful dishes we selected, but there are numerous photos here on Yelp so you can get an idea. Each plate showed off the chefs' artistry. In addition to the courses we chose, we were complemented dainty bowls of mushroom broth, fingerling potatoes in some divine sauce, a Japanese appetizer, and small after-dinner glasses of sparkling wine. Everything was delicious. If I had any suggestions it would be to please modify the overhead lights from their blue-white ghoul-conferring glare that made me reluctant to take pictures of our guests, and tone down the artic air flow that seems unnecessary in January. We were all shivering by the end of our meal. However, these were more than made up for by the exceptional warm care we received from the entire crew. Beautiful, spotless, elegant, glamorous, and high-quality. It is definitely worth your while. We will return in the summer for a sunset dinner.

    Top-notch place all over! We had 3 course chief's dinner and enjoyed our experience a lot. Actually, I am very surprised that I enjoyed it so much because we were hoping for the window table but I got to say if I is two people in your party most likely you won't get it because based on what I saw in the restaurant there are so little tables for two by the window...Anyway even though we did not sit by the window the view is still very pretty and the food just amazing. I really enjoyed the octopus and the steak. I am very big on desserts and I tried so many good ones so I would say the pudding I ordered was not exactly to my liking but still pretty good. The service was excellent. Overall very nice dinner at this place. We decided to go again and try our luck with the window table next time!

    71Above was absolutely amazing. Celebrated my wife’s birthday and the staff was very welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of. The food exceeded my expectations. The bartenders were great and helped my wife find the perfect cocktail to pair with her food. Will definitely be coming back.

    Excellent view, service, cocktails and food! Unfortunately at $155/pp for dinner, one cocktail, tax, gratuity and parking, it probably can’t be a regular haunt for most folks, which is a shame, because the view alone should be accessible to everyone at any time. Also, presumed tips - 18% is automatically added, even for a table of two - are just annoying; do they seriously think people who are spending this much for dinner won’t be tipping? The service was so good, I’d planned on leaving 25%, but when 18% was automatically included, I just went with it.

    We had a great time celebrating Dydd Santes Dwynwen, Welsh patron Saint of lovers. We got the 5pm sitting and were the first guests at the restaurant. The lady downstairs was really sweet, who checked us in. We were greeted genuinely by everyone we met. They even gave us a little something as it was a special occasion. We got there just before sunset, so saw the setting, the almost panoramic view, both in the day and after dark. The service was outstanding, the food was great and we enjoyed some drinks too. I went for the vegetarian option, a little warning as they do use gelatin in some of their desserts, but I went for the raspberry sorbet. My partner really enjoyed the non vegetarian options, which they had a fair few to choose from. Overall, great experience and would recommend, not just for the view.

    This was my second visit and it was far worse than the first time. The service was extremely slow between each course. Also, the server didn't check in to see how the food was during each course. The octopus appetizer was magnificent. The ribeye however was cooked well but was not seasoned at all! It was disappointing to say the least. I alerted the waiter and manager, but nothing was done to improve my experience. Again, very disappointed.

    If you are looking for a place to take your boo and cupcake this is the place to go. 71 Above is top notch and will impress your guest. The service is superior, the food is amazing and cooked. Perfectly and the ambience is everything. Nestled smack dab in the middle of downtown LA on the 71st floor you are able to see the city 360° around. The place can’t help but be romantic. We had an excellent time.

    Everything was great. Food was delicious and the views were spectacular. The building where the restaurant resides is undergoing construction so the exterior and path to get to the restaurant was confusing and messy. We were informed that it was the last day of construction but by the looks of it, that is highly unlikely.

He couldn’t stop talking about how special everything was from the perfect views, to the generous supply of scrumptious morsels arriving from the kitchen to the fabulous Burgundy wine chosen.
