The service was good. The ribeye steak was so dry and tough! It was the worst ribeye steak I’ve encountered. I was so disappointed and embarrassed because I’m known for choosing great restaurants. The steak was $72. Everything was a la carte. The creamed corn was runny. The potatoes were cheesy and delicious.

the views are unmatched from the 35th (I think that's right) floor of this downtown building. we were there on a relatively quiet Sunday evening, and our server was amazing. the food was fantastic (I'm vegan and I loved it--I asked if they could sautee the mushroom side with oil instead of butter, and our server replied "we don't use butter." superb! we will definitely be back.

Service was poor due to the fact that we needed to waive down our server every time we needed something. She only ever dropped off our drinks, appetizer, entree and returned to give us our check because we asked for it, so that we didn't have to wait another 20 minutes before she reappeared. If the food was not excellent, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Don't get me wrong, LA Prime is not a terrible restaurant. But for the overall price and amenities, it underperforms.
While it's definitely and "old money" steakhouse, a much needed upgrade is in order. Outside the view AND the prices, nothing wowed is. And the off the menu French fries were out of a bag. The Brussels sprouts while good, lacked the crispy texture that make them addictive. The bread was cold and the cocktails had unnecessary pieces of fruit in them like they were trying to get rid of pineapples. The pork belly were an overpriced bore. However, the steaks were perfectly cooked but lacked salt. You could have a much better meal for about half the price at Ruth's.

Disappointed at the service. One would expect more being in a 4 star hotel. Hosts were good, waitress couldve been more pleasant and come around more especially with a $260 bill for two.

Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything was great! My only negative comment is we had to wait a while at the desk, waiting for the hostess to show up to seat us. Overall LA Prime was great!

we waited table for 30 minutes include that we made a reservation, and then another 30 minutes we waited for our cocktail. We stopped by for an hour to have a cocktail, to eat tartare-as a result, we spent that hour waiting and violated our schedule.
in fairness it must be said that the tartar wasn’t bad!
Anyway, For the first time in my life I am writing a negative review, we will never return. Service is not good.

I would recommend this place but bring $$$$ because it's expensive and if you bring your favorite bottle of wine, be prepared to pay $40.00 corkage fee PER BOTTLE!!!

Definitely went above expectations with an incredible view and amazing food. Only thing I didnt like was reserving ahead of time and requesting a window seat but was accommodated behind the first row. Other than that this place is a must go for a nice steak dinner.

Although known for their steaks, I had the Chilean Sea Bass this time, and it was delicious. I also had a pear salad and an espresso martini. Every time I stay at the Westin Bonaventure I eat at LA Prime, so that should give you some idea about how I feel about dining there.

Rafael was our server and was great, he provided outstanding, and special catering to our birthday girl who was celebrating her 4th bday. Food was outstanding, we ordered the filet, the 24 oz Delmonico ribeye, shrimp scampi, wedge salad, Mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, chicken fingers and fries for our toddler, and few cocktails (old fashions and watermelon martini) our reservation was at 7 PM which was perfect to enjoy an L.A. sunset . Memorable evening :)

Overall OK. The food and service were excellent! The only complaint I have is a party of approximately 10 were celebrating a birthday. They were already intoxicated and loud the entire time. It took away my romantic-dinner-for-two feeling we were trying to have. It’s a lot to spend to be part of someone else’s celebration and not truly enjoy mine.

Restaurant was half empty and still we were seated in poor location. Food was noting close to the finer seafood, steak restaurants with prices way to high.

We will never go back.

Wait staff very good. I asked for a view table when I made the reservation and the person who seated us was also aware. However, we were placed at a table right in front of the Union Bank Building, although there were many tables available, but since we were already settled, I opted not to request to be moved. My husband said it was because it is the shortest route for the waiters to access the kitchen. I hope this is not the reason. It was our anniversary and overall we were treated very well. It was a good evening.
