We were sat on time however our waitress took our drink order (two waters) and then proceeded to disappear for 30 minutes. Yes, Thirty Minutes. That alone is just awful. We finally got up and asked for assistance and she came over 5 mins after that and actually stopped to take the table next to us (who had just been sat a couple minutes prior) entire order. When she approached us she just said “okay, guys what’s looking good.” As if she didn’t just abandon her table in a nearly empty rooftop bar for half an hour. It was my partners birthday so we just decided to make the best of it and the food was actually delicious! The ambiance and the view doesn’t hurt. So however once we got our food—she was MIA again. After a while we started wanting dessert, and also we needed to buy $100 worth of food, so 15, 20 minutes pass by (and this is well after our meal is done plates cleared by someone else) and i decide to flag someone down and order dessert. That’s when I was told the kitchen was closed! It closed long before this. They offered to make us drinks instead but we didn’t want drinks (AGAIN it was someone’s birthday?? and the waitress knew this!) We decided just to leave and they were like “sorry you still need to spend 15 dollars.” and they also basically said your waitress went home. I said no. They gave me a bill with GRATUITY included despite it saying they won’t do that on their menu (they really wanted that $100) I was so disappointed I’ll never come back. I’ve received better service else where—this was shameful.

This is the place you want to visit once a lifetime. It has the skyview as you imagine, music and food in open door. Good to have space and bright sunshine.

Food and drinks were underwhelming. Service was not amazing. The hotel is beautiful and has great views. I would recommend this place for the view but not for dining.

It’s an awesome place but really small selection on food, and it’s mostly junk food. When you go to a place like this you want good food too, so kind of was disappointed in that, but the service, view, and the DJ were amazing!

All was lovely however for the amount one pays for the experience I would expect that the windows be clean ....after all folks are coming here primarily for the view and you are unable to view it without looking through glass partition barriers. On my recent visit the windows were filthy...this detail alone would keep me from returning as I don't see the value in spending several hundred dollars entertaining clients when the main draw is obscured. Management should figure this detail out...the windows should be spotless at the start of each evening...this would likely increase business....

Although the location is spectacular and you must visit at least once due to the view ... Spire 73 is advertised as a rooftop bar and restaurant. It's a rooftop bar.. that's it. Upon arrival the 2nd waiter was great ! However , him and the view were the only great part of the night. There are 5 total food options on the menu and 3 were no longer available, The bartenders at the bar took over 30min to acknowledge my group of 4. We only went up to the bar because no one contacted us at our table for 20min even after our credit card was placed on hold for 350 dollars of minimum food and drinks. It was quite disappointing... we had been planning on visiting this place for more than 2 months. The food wasn't the most frustrating, it was the lack of customer service and overall acknowledgement. We needed up leaving and headed down the street to a place called JOEY DTLA. The service was incredibly helpful and kind. It made up for our view with disappointment from Spire 73

TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! We had a reservation and had to wait over 30 minutes. When approached by management, we were scolded and asked "so do you want the table or not" what kind of customer service is that?? This is supposed to be a 5 star hotel roof top bar. NEVER GOING BACK!!

This is the best evening view of LA by far and they make you pay for it. The welcoming experience is ordinary as you’re asked for ID and a credit card before even entering the restaurant. The service once seated is great but the food is average.
Drink and enjoy the view!

Insists on taking your driver’s license and a credit card and keeping it for the entire time you are there before they will even allow to order. Arrogant and obnoxiously hipster, overpriced. Will never set foot there again and will tell everyone I know to avoid it.

A real cool place to experience if you have the chance to do so while in LA. Prices are typical for LA but the food was good and the drink menu had a nice variety but being outside, 73 floors up and being able to enjoy those views (when it isnt smoggy/foggy 😉) is where you get your money's worth. And when the helicopters buzz by, you feel like you're in one of those Hollywood thrillers!!!

It became quite obvious that this place is only relying on the view from 73 floors above downtown Los Angeles.
I’ll try keep this brief as I could rant for awhile.
Staff - Sandra at check in was lovely
Wait staff - inattentive & perhaps inexperienced
Manager - made excuses for the error in our order, tried to blame the kitchen & everything else it seemed. Rude.
Made a reservation, warning...they charge for ‘private booth’ which was a bar table with uncomfortable bar stools, though we were at the window for view.
Minimum order of $50 person. I’m actually okay with that except in this case many of the items on a limited menu were not available.
It’s chilly up that high but they have no throw rugs and the heaters are ineffective.
I’ve been to one of the worlds most amazing rooftop bars/restaurants in Bangkok and it was all about service.
I saw my dining friends last night & we all discovered that each of us felt ill after eating here.
Spire 73 has such an amazing opportunity to create a ‘must experience venue’ in L.A and they’ve dropped the ball dramatically.
This is basic pub food at ‘elevated’ prices.
If you want a view, go to the 70th floor for the lookout then check out the many other downtown Los Angeles places to ear & drink.
We should have gone to Perch

I booked a private area for my 30th birthday party at Spire 73 and it was such a blast. The service was great, food and drinks were amazing, and everyone loved the view. We had a wonderful time. The space is gorgeous, I highly recommend hosting an event here!

Great city views, but a more club like atmosphere even early in the evening (7pm). Menu is mostly light plate, which were delicious, but would have liked a bit more offerings to meet the $200 minimum spend.

We went for drinks and appetizers before a late dinner. The cover charge and per person minimum of $60 is not a problem. The problem was the wine menu was poor, the carnitas fries were a mess and greasy and the pork was dry bordering on inedible. The view is wonderful, the seating terribly uncomfortable and no fans or misting so the temperature was horrendous. The late night scene may be excellent, but not a good pick for business partners.
