I had requested a seat by the window and mentioned it’s a bday celebration but none of them was honored. We barely got the wine and a seat opened up by the window I asked the waiter to move us there. He said he will check to see if he can he didn’t come back for 10 minutes and someone else got seated there. The New York steak, the halibut fish was okay .. for that price I had better quality food in more than few places. With exception of location nothing else was great, just average good

Had dinner here on a Friday night. Service was slow and took us long time to get entrees. Steaks were good but very expensive. Wine list very extensive but probably priced at a 4x mark up. Great view but atmosphere a little cold and noise echoed in room.

Honestly, the view is gorgeous, but for those prices, I expected the food to be outstanding. The octopus was good, but I have had better. The steak and lobster were on point, but the appetizers kind of failed. The oysters were not good. Sweet foam on oysters? I’ll pass. The scallops were good, but the cigar box tartar wasn’t. The escargot also lacked in flavor and richness. Their cocktail menu was mediocre and the one drink with mezcal was overwhelmingly bitter. Maybe go for the “experience” but be ready to pay a lot for food that should have met higher standards.

The restaurant and service was grest. The views to the city are amazing. But the $95 dollar steak was over priced and it was not at the flavor or textured level of Rith Cris, Mortons stesk house and or Flemings. I was disappointed in the steak. Overall i guess i paid for the view.

La Boucherie was one of my favorite restaurants since its opening. But i got very disappointed visiting again after 6 months. First it was requested window sitting but unfortunately they didnt sit us near window even though it was a Saturday night and it was not crowded like before. Second you have to ask for everything from bread to mustard and salt. They dont bring knife board so can choose no more. I asked why the mustard is only 4 types it used to be like 12 the waiter told it was a waste, cmon you dont tell that to a customer. Anyways service sucked food was good thats why instead of 1 star i give 3. I expect nice service especially for 2 we paid $500. It was my last time going there i rather go to mastros.

First time here for a birthday. I was very pleased with the service and the food was amazing as well. I was only disappointed by the table I was given. I had asked for a table with a window view several weeks in advance and the staff was still not able to accommodate me.

An establishment which charges $1300 to feed five people with 3 cocktails, should be ashamed to charge $10 per basket of bread , not to mention each basket had 3 small 4-5” individual baguettes. It’s enough that everything is extra including the bland cold sauces! It’s pitiful that we paid $30 for bread and basic butter at a so called French steak house :(

The view is spectacular - city lights from the 71st floor of the Intercontinental Hotel in DTLA. I was dining here for the first time with my family celebrating my birthday. I was received well by the hotel staff as we were directed to the restaurant after dropping off the car with valet. The hostess and the rest of the team were wonderful. However, what caught me off-guard was our server. For such a high-end restaurant, one would expect high-quality service, right? To start, my brother and I were discussing the cocktails with her and she zipped off, assuming my brother wanted the $50 XO Cognac drink. My brother had to get up from the table and chase her down to correct the order (we wanted Old Fashioned's). Appetizer and bread were good (unique presentation with the tartare). The main courses arrived before the sides and I get it - the kitchen can get busy. My brother's rib eye was lacking flavor and he had to ask for Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. The truffle mustard was notably tasty. I inquired about the sides and the manager came over and reassured me that our food was on the way and that they would comp dessert. Dessert came with a "happy anniversary" chocolate sign and I asked if they had brought me someone else's surprise. Our server reassured me that it was mine, snatched the chocolate away with her bare hands and replaced with a "happy birthday." Usually if food needs a correction, the entire plate goes back and corrections are made, right? When I asked our server about parking validation, she said, "Oh, that's from another lot," and walked off. We got valet from their hotel. I was confused "what other lot" she was referring to. Anyway, I asked the hostess on the way out and she helped me out. To my disappointment, I felt a a bit dismissed and rushed throughout the entirety of the meal. My family enjoys exploring restaurants because it's our way of catching up with each other. Unfortunately, I don't think we will be coming back.

Beautiful view, lovely restaurant ... food forgettable and service similar to Sizzler. I have been to La Boucherie twice before and Restaurant deserving of accolades then. Somehow, someway La Boucherie took a incredible nose-dive out of their breathtaking window view and into the common restaurants of downtown LA. It ha moved from a 5-star dining experience to one star at best.

The food and service were fantastic, and the view was spectacular. We enjoyed our dinner while watching the sunset high above downtown Los Angeles, with amazing views of the hills from Santa Monica to Palos Verdes and the coast line in between. The service was perfect-- attentive and personable, while not intrusive. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the wine pairing was ideal and the flaming chocolate dessert was the ideal way to cap the evening.

We had a wonderful time this was definitely upscale. Everyone was dressed to the nines and all the staff greeted you as you walk by. The view was to die for. My only complaint is I reserved a. Table for my husband and I celebrating our anniversary requesting. Window seat however we didn’t get that. The host said we were the third couple waiting for a window table and she made it seem like it would be a long wait. Maybe 30 min after we sat there was an available table by the window that we could’ve sat at. It remained empty til we left. I would’ve waited 30 min had I known that.

We had a really special evening with friends celebrating a birthday. The food and service was five stars! The only complaint was unexpectedly getting hit with 20% service charge on the bill since we were party of six and then expected to tip on top of that?? I found this insulting considering the hefty price tag of dinner. Bestia and other restaurants downtown do not add in 20% service charges for table of six.

The atmosphere is very elegant with an incredible view, and the food was good (not extraordinary). For the price, I had high expectations of the food and service. The service is where they really fall short. They’re were not very attentive, and it wasn’t very busy. I’m glad I tried it out, but I probably won’t be back. I went to 71Above recently and the experience was better.

Great ambiance with over viewing of downtown LA and great service but I had my reservation a week before and requested for window table and it never happened.. Their steak is too dry it’s not worth the price!! I ordered rib eye but looks like a new york steak and way too dry and over pricey!!

My second time dine there. The same hostess who was so snobbish and mean! She never gave me a table with good view. Always picked the worst one for me and my friend. And I always have to ask other staff to allow me switching to another table seems there are always some available ones with better view. The hostess always has an attitude. I would dine there more is I don’t have to face the embarrassment she created for me every time.
