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.

We came here for a graduation celebration. Even though my guest was quite delayed due to traffic, the staff was gracious and accommodating. The food was delicious and artfully presented. Our servers were outstanding! They brought us a complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate! 71 Above is my go-to special occasion location!!

We had an absolutely amazing table on a perfect Los Angeles evening. Food was wonderful. Service outstanding, but you are going to pay for it. It was one of the more expensive meals I've had in a long time, but it was for a special occasion and the view was worth a million bucks.

This restaurant got us in on time at a table with a beautiful view. We were celebrating our anniversary so they gave us a glass of rose and a dessert. I thought the views are to die for and the ambiance was so romantic.

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...

My Husband’s and my experience was wonderful!!!!Service was top notch and the food was exquisite. I do feel for the price the portion size is not enough. You dont have to over fill the plate with food, but when my husband and i left we were still hungry. I would recommend for cocktail and appetizers but not for dinner

I took my wife to 71 above to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant is beautiful and has the best view of
the city. The staff was very professional and attentive. The restaurant only offers a 3-course meal but you have about 7 choices to select per course. The food was outstanding! Some of the items we had were the octopus, scallops, rib eye steak, and oysters. Everything was wonderful both in taste and presentation. We will be coming back to 71 above for special occasions.

I took a friend here so she could get a great view of Los Angeles. We made a reservation but asked to be sat at the bar since we were only getting drinks and small plates. It is important to note that 71 Above fills up quickly, so it is always safer to have a reservation. The bartenders put on a show for us and REALLY took care of us. It was an amazing experience that we did not want to end. The drinks and food are well worth the money and the view was to die for... not to mention the sunsets.

Expected a lot out of this restaurant. We were very underwhelmed. They ran 30 minutes late on our reservation, and the bartenders were not friendly when we ordered a drink from them. We didn’t have a designated server the entire time that we dined. Our service was comprised of food runners, bussers, and the Sommelier, Ryan, whom kept checking up on us the entire time.

Have been for dinner about 4 times and decided to go for lunch. BIG mistake. So disappointing in most every way (save for the spectacular views. Problems with parking, hostess in lobby, hostess in restaurant and then their inability to properly cook a burger. Seriously, they could NOT get a burger right and wife sent it back twice. Had to leave before they'd be able to do another which at that point we just wanted to leave. Of course they didn't charge us for her burger and the manager was very nice, but we won't make the mistake of doing lunch here again.

I'd still highly recommend for dinner. Great drinks, and delicious and beautiful dishes.
