Exceptional service. Breathtaking views. Tasty, delicious food. Come early as a couple (6p reservations or earlier) if you want to sit by window. Ambiance was spectacular.

It was my first time here and it was quite enjoyable. Food and ambiance was excellent. However, we had to wait an hour to get a table by a window that I requested in my reservation.

The service matched the amazing view. The food was on-point but the star was our Sommelier Alex who navigated us through the meal with his fantastic wine pairings! Definately a special occasion venue.

The view and ambience are the highlights of this restaurant. The food, on the other hand, is nothing to write home about. The presentation of the food is nice, however, the ingredients and flavor are mediocre. Nice place to experience just once. The overall value wasn't worth a return visit.

Stunning view and ambiance. Food solid execution although portions size at tad small (at least brunch was). Take your out of town guests to impress with sweeping views/decor or perhaps that someone special for a romantic date night.

Yes...with extreme reservations. The view was, of course, exceptional. The food was good. The service was poor. They force an 18% service fee/tip on your bill and then don't serve you. They forgot our drinks and disappeared for long periods of time. The guy at the front desk host station was pretty rude as well. They didn't even allow us to be seated until our whole party arrived which made us miss our sunset view. They said everyone had to order at the same time, which I understand being a pre-fixe menu, but they could let you sit at your table that has the view at least and order drinks. The way the place is run is just a very bad system overall. I don't think we'll be going back.

Wonderful venue with exceptional food and a perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion. We had a terrific anniversary dinner and could actually hear each other while tasting the amazing farm egg and chorizo appetizer, exceptional hamachi, Waygu beef, pork loin and vegetarian special all pleased. Lots of options for each of three course in price fixed dinner that at $78 is worth it. Supplementals are pricy, however.

Service is way below the value, food was ok, salty over.
The only good thing about this place is the view but with the price you pay, there is many other much better place with better service you can go, will not recommend this place, and will not go again.

When I called in before arriving to the restaurant I was promised a window for my anniversary dinner. When I arrived I was seated next to a couple that took the window. Service was horrible and the person that brought the bill at the end was the cherry on top very rude. My tea was never brought to the table, food was not good for what I paid for 300.00, and service was very poor. I honestly felt like I should of got a refund for the horrible service, food that day. Or at least promised a better meal. I’ve been to this restaurant twice and always was Seated by the window and food and service was way better.

I visited 71Above to celebrate a friend’s promotion. The ambiance and view are amazing. I just wish it was a clearer LA DAY. The food was delicious and the service - awesome. Our server Bulmaro (I hope I spelled it correctly) kindly described every dish on the menu delectably causing me to want several meal choices. It's the perfect reason to return.

First, it’s gorgeous and truly spectacular views of all of LA. The decor of the restaurant is perfectly minimal and chic because with views like that, you really don’t need much. The food was outstanding!! My favorite was the octopus, the bacon vinaigrette was such a delicious add to this dish, I enjoyed every bite! I also had the pork and it was succulent and filling. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I will definitely go back!

Great views, obviously, and a very nice roomy space. We were there early so, not crowded. The 3 course meal was great, and my first 2 were very delicious. My 3rd course, the Ribeye was just ok. I had a tasty cocktail, and my GF and I each had a glass of wine w the 3rd course. A bit pricey, especially the wines, but we had a very nice dinner. Service was great.

As a regular, I getting more and more disappointed with the food and the service. First, the food sucked. I really doubt the "ribeye" from the dinner course is any quality beef and is probably not even a ribeye (maybe chuck?) Also the service was horribly slow. Plenty of other better restaurants in town...
