The Mac & cheese was absolutely horrifying.
I’m pretty sure kraft is better than that.

Would not recommend to anyone.

I have been to this restaurant many times in past and always enjoyed the food. So, based upon great experiences in the past, elected to celebrate my son's 40th there. What a mistake..... we ordered and hair came in the food. When my son complained, we were surrounded by staff and management who asked us to leave, for fear he would say something, "disrupt" other diners, but there was only one other couple in the entire restaurant. When we complained how ridiculous they were being and how they ruined the evening, they did not care. We decided to leave, not because they wanted us, but because we had no faith in the food and were disgusted with their behavior. Needless to say, will not return

Reservations are honored. View is excellent. No attempt to force rapid table turnover. Dining encouraged. Steak and steak preparation are good/very good, but not exceptional. Wine by glass list could be expanded. Our wait staff was engaging and attentive.

While we had a great view, good food, and fine service, a nearby table was very loud and obnoxious. That somewhat ruined the evening.

In a restaurant like LA Prime I don’t expect to be rushed and we weren’t. Conversely service was uncomfortably slow. The food was adequate but truly didn’t merit the price. Portions were fair but quality wasn’t. One of our steaks was ordered “medium” and was served medium well. Another of us ordered Chilean Sea Bass and it smelled “fishy” raising questions of freshness. I suggest saving your money or patronizing another Los Angeles steak house.

The view was great. My wife and I ordered the filet mignon and the recommended New York strip. We asked for medium rare and they were medium and dry around the edges. I am not sure if this is the usual here so I am giving them the benefit of the doubt. The waiter was great and they brought us out an anniversary dessert. Overall a good experience. The difference was the way the steaks were cooked which could have made it an excellent experience.

Went here for my wife's birthday. The food was excellent and the wine list was quite extensive including some bottles that are not for public sale. The view was great and the service was top notch without being intrusive. The only hiccup is that you will need to speak with the bar to get a guest card to get up to the restaurant or hop on the Red elevator with someone who has a guest card.

LA Prime rolled out the red carpet for my son’s 21st Birthday dinner. The bartender mixed a special drink and the complimentary dessert was decorated specifically for the special occasion. The steaks were fabulous and the view spectacular! Thank you!

We took advantage of dinela to head over to LA Prime, a place I’d never enjoyed before. The service was superb; Mark was wonderfully attentive without being over-bearing. The food was cooked to perfection; the wine list was extensive but expensive. I look forward to being able to go on over again.

from host to server to chef three service was great
I took my teenage daughter on her first dinner date. You all treated her like a princess. She loved thr attention and loved spending my money on filet mignon. I figured she would order that though.
Vikki our waitress was very attentive and kept a smile on my daughter's face. Chef made her feel even better by coming out to meet her.
We stayed long enough for her to get views of downtown as the sun sets.
All in all you guys are still amazing and the food still cooked to perfection.
I recommend LA Prime whenever I am asked.

We went there to celebrate my parents anniversary and my sisters birthday, we couldn’t get a baby sitter so we brought my 4 month old sister, the only sounds she made were little squeals of joy and our waiter was talking back to her and making her smile so I really appreciate that. Food was amazing, I’ve never had Chilean sea bass before and I can honestly say it was one of the greatest things I’ve ever tasted. Also the olive caper spread for the bread was FANTASTIC, coming from someone who hates olives and capers. View was beautiful, we all had an amazing time

I attended LA Prime as part of my anniversary celebration. Making reservations was easy and flexible. When arriving, you are greeted with a smile and a pleasant attitude by the host and server (and in fact anyone working there). The LA skyline was breathtaking. It was beautiful! The food was delicious and fairly priced. I ordered a 3 course meal that included: roasted maine lobster bisque, pan roasted wild king salmon, and dark chocolate mousse. My partner ordered the chilean sea bass. He ate the bisque and we shared the dessert. As a side dish we ordered potato gratin, which ended up being complimentary, since it took a little longer to be served. Overall, everything we ordered was exquisite!!!!

Visiting from TX celebrating our 4 year anniversary in LA was such a great time, but what top it off was our Anniversary Dinner at LA Prime. Everything we ordered was excellent from the Gumbo, baked Rockefeller Oysters, down to the entrees. My wife ordered The Jumbo Shrimp Scampi and she was pretty shocked by the size of the shrimp and the scampi sauce was made to perfection. I ordered the Chilean Seabass OMG it's absolutely delicious. The portion size was also surprisingly good portion most 5☆ restaurant give you a couple of scoops and maybe a slice of your choice then bring you a $200 bill lol. LA Prime we will most definitely be back once we visit LA again. Thanks for the great service!

Our waiter Batter H was as accommodating and knowledgeable as could be. He recommended a wine for my wife the wine connoisseur and it was superb. She paired the truffle risotto with Australian lobster tail. I had the Colorado lamb chops. All superb. We were surprised with a delicious cheesecake dessert for our occasion. Highly recommended. Wish we had time to visit the rotating cocktail lounge one floor below

If you want gourmet food in a beautiful setting, this is the place to go. The service was outstanding with the waiter being attentive without being smothering. The food was prepared to perfection. I had lamb chops and my wife had salmon - both done beautifully. If you want an up-scale food experience, this is a wonderful place to go.
