Great spot however was very under staffed when we went and our server was not polite at all. It took over half an hour to get a cocktail made.

The service was absolutely terrible. Took us over an hour to receive the food we ordered and it was all incorrect. Two tables next to us were seated and paid the check before we even received our correct food. The waitress was nowhere to be found when we got up to look for her. Absolutely crazy.

The food was good but the menu is very limited. It gets very hot up there and the cushions could burn someone if you are not careful.

I reserved a table with my girlfriends for our girls night out. We were visiting Venice for the weekend and this spot definitely had fun vibes! Each table had an awesome view of the boardwalk and the beach. There was a dj and good dance music playing. Definitely a cool spot

Myself and my girlfriend had a reservation for dinner. We went straight there from the airport as soon as we arrived in LA, and had one suitcase with us. The venue is on the roof of The Erwin Hotel, and you have to go through the main entrance of the hotel to get to High. When we got to the main entrance we were told that we weren't permitted to take the suitcase to the bar, and that they would not hold the luggage at the hotel reception because we weren't staying at the hotel. We were staying in North Hollywood, so didn't have time to drop the bag off and come back. When I asked what we should do about the reservation, they said we wouldn't be allowed to use it. Really awful service, which ruined our date on the first night of our holiday.

I've been to this place many times and it's always a hit! However, this past visit, the service seems to have declined quite a bit. For starters, they were so busy they couldn't accept any more restaurant cars for valet; the one elevator they had moves slow as molasses (they actually asked people to take the stairs- to the 7th level!); service was a bit slow and no one seemed particularly happy to do their job. So- yes, a great view, great location, great drinks (but pretty pricy drinks), and a great time to be had by all! If you're very very patient. ;D

Great location, excellent view! Great spot for drinks and appetizers! But make a reservation if you want to be able to sit down at a table. This place has a a very snobby vibe, and if you don’t have a reservation they will let you know you are welcome to standing room even though many tables are empty. Probably overpriced, as well, but I guess you pay for the location and view. I will still be back I’m sure. But I will reserve a table...

Solid date spot with a fantastic view of the sunset overlooking the boardwalk. Definitely recommend making a reservation regardless of time of day or day of the week. We went on a Monday and were glad to have a table (with heater) to relax in. Food was basic, but hit the spot.

We booked our reservation 24 hours in advanced and requested a table by the ocean. Upon arrival we were given table in the back while there was one table empty right in front, and it was very hard to get a look at sunset because walk-in people were given access to the bar over reservation. Very poor customer service. I would rather go to the beach and watch sunset than waisting my time and money at this place.
