    Appetizer came last (chicken). We were already done with our food and it took an extra 20 minutes before it arrived. Cocktails are way overpriced

    Table service could have been much better. After being seated for 20 minutes, I had to flag a server down to take our appetizer order. Ordered my 2nd drink and I got it about 20 minutes later, ice was melted - was most likely sitting after it was prepared. Other than that food, views were good. Hotel was charming.

    This was my first time there yesterday. My reservation was at 5:30. My cousin and I got their like 20 minutes early since we didn’t know how the parking was going to look like. When we got there we decide to to do valet and we went up the elevator where then met the host. Since we were there early she told us the we can wait at the bar and that she will come to get us when our table was ready. We were at the bar for a while when my cousin notice the hostess was immediately taking people who arrived after us to their table. We didn’t get seated at our table like around 6 then had to wait another 20 minutes until Denis noticed us and came over to ask us someone has helped us. He brought us water and put our order in. We later found out that Denis was the boss of the restaurant. After he help us then the staff finally notice us and would come over and check on us. Thank you Denis!

    View is great. But wasn’t impressed by the food. The squash and tomato heirloom salad was swimming in oil. The fish was over cooked a bit. Liked the shrimp tacos and the mango dessert. For the price there are better options.

    Simple menu but great food. Portions are moderate but just fulfilling enough when you have an apetizer, an entrée and a dessert. The best rooftop dining with amazing views of downtown. At night, the ambiance and the views are just great. DTLA looking its best. We shot great photos. Friendly, helpful staff. Good value for money.

    It's worth it for the view but you can run the bill up very quickly with pricey, somewhat skimpy appetizers. They were delicious, just very small.

    Server was not very attentive. Never came back to take our order after we said we needed a little more time to look at the menu & we had to flag more than 1 person down to put our order in. The manager ended up doing more than our server. Besides that, it was great. I love the aesthetic & the food is great.

    One of the best rooftops I have to so far, amazing food and views. The food was not only fresh but full of flavor and presentation was nice (not over the top, nor was is a ridiculous portion to price point ratio). Went with a friend but can also be great for date night.

    Delicious! We wanted a different table from what our reservations gave us for better ambience and they were more than cordial to accommodate us. We waited at the bar, had drinks and conversation and finally the table in the area we wanted opened up and we got seated. Appetizers and entree and drinks are absolutely delicious!!! I love this restaurant and will come back!!!

    Forced to rate food but I didn’t have. Pricy joint (esp for plates and cocktails) but gorgeous views of LA. Highly recommend when the weather is lovely out (they also have heat lamps). Easy to find and make reservations, would recommend!

    It’s a nice restaurant with a beautiful view. Be prepared for the youth taking a ton of Instagram photos. Other than that, 7 pm at this time of the month is a good estimate of when the sun goes down and you see the skyline. I did mention it was our anniversary on here but didn’t really get any thing special so if you are expecting a note at the table or snuggling like that, don’t.

    With some of the best skyline views, along with wonderful service and ambiance, Cara Cara makes an excellent night out in LA. The only black mark is the food, which was somewhat overpriced, and the small portions of most of what we ordered, but with that being said, you must try the Piri Piri Fried Chicken, with the delicious Green Aioli, that was juicy and full of flavor. The White Mushroom Trumpet Focaccia was perfectly seasoned, flavorful and cheesy cheesy! Yummy. The mouthwatering Hangover Burger was so huge that we shared it, and we still didn't finish it. The crispy delectable fries that accompanied were enough for two. We ended our dinner with the tasty Mango Pudding with Crispy Rice. All in all, we recommend Cara Cara for a lovely night out.
