Spire73 is an outdoor bar with great views but does not offer a restaurant section.

Expensive cover charge of $25 each and drinks start at around $20 happy hour and $22-$30 after happy hour, what bother me so much is that the Bouncer, host and the waiters were clueless and not attentive or the Manager could not answer what the big event was all about.....and all three times i had to look for the waiters. So when you spend $250, you deserve better treatment.

Not worth the money. What is so good about this place that makes it worth a $200 minimum? I won’t return and even if you have money to blow its just not worth it.

The occasion was for the birthday which nothing came from the host regarding that
So I wouldn’t recommend this place for a special occasion

The service was great overall, so I definitely appreciate that. But, the prices were way too high for what you got ($35 carnitas fries is ridiculous), the seating was uncomfortable and awkwardly places so we couldn’t easily sit, talk, and eat, which was the whole point of why I reserved a table.

Ultimately it was just not what I was looking for, and was unnecessarily expensive. The views were great, and there’s a cool novelty factor of being so high up, but I probably won’t ever go again.

Save your time and $$$. They clip you for $150 just to walk in. Dirty glass windows. If you’re going to have a glass rooftop bar, please keep it clean.

Nice to see a hip modern rooftop in LA with an amazing view from the 73rd floor.
Mixed drink are amazingly good and were done to perfection, not very sweet and can actually taste the alcohol in them.
Food taste delicious and served nicely just wish they had a menu with more food selection.
Will definitely return very soon.

Terrible service, terrible organization. I was very disappointed. It’s ridiculous to spend 75 dollars a person and have to still wait in a cramped line behind an elevator. Not only am I not going to recommend this restaurant, but I will make it a point to tell others not to go here. Absolutely ridiculous.

I took my mom and nephew for my nephew's 21st birthday. We reserved a table in advance which obligated us to a $150 f&b minimum for just 3 people. The greeting at the door by the host wasn't the most pleasant. From the traverse to the table led by the host who wasn't very friendly (to say the least) to shooing away the frat guys who were sitting at our 'Reserved' table to waiting almost 15 minutes before a server even acknowledged us, it was a bumpy start. But then the service was not the best. And the server knew it. He tried to compensate for it by being very friendly but that didn't much help the waiting and the mistakes he made and the poorly made drinks. How do you mess up a classic margarita? Well, apparently that's not hard to do. And the counter height deck chairs lined against the outer walls that we sat in were uncomfortable and some were in bad shape.

I think the big let down is the high expectation that comes with such a unique and upscale place like this one only to be smacked with the reality that it's not that great. My mom and nephew at the end of it were like "meh..." as I wanted to take them there to show them some of the best of what LA has to offer since they were visiting from Indiana. Apart from the awesome view, they weren't impressed.

Our server was short with her words and rude. One of our items we ordered ran out but took them 30 min to tell us they were out and by that time the other food was on our table getting cold. Over all stupid expensive for how crapy your service was you need to talk with alll of your staff about costermer service.

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.

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!
