We booked in advance for more than a month before but the day we went there we couldn't get window table. This doesn't worth $90 lunch for two. We came fore high rise building view but we can't see anything. The risotto in Diver Scallop is undercooked.

Went for a lunch visit but unfortunately due to the weather we can't see the LA skyline. It's a two course set menu for $25 without dessert but still worth it. However the parking is a bit pricey at $35 when you exceed the two hour validation of $10. Service was good but didn't like the why how they handle the bowl with a thumb inside the rim. Overall the food was good for lunch and clean environment.

Loved the experience! The service was top notch, the food was amazing, and the view was spectacular. The only criticism I have is that the portions are absurdly too small, but that’s about the only negative I could think of. Overall, 10/10.

The food was great. Our waitress was familiar with the menu and was able to make perfect descriptions of the various dishes. She also did a great job of pairing the courses for those who struggle to make decisions. The view is amazing. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time since the dinner with dessert takes around 2 1/2 hours.

I have been to a number of restaurants. I had a pleasant time at 71 and above. Services was excellent, ambiance was great. The food was very good; however, it lacked that wow factor that takes restaurants to another level. This is what was missing for me. I think if they fine tune that it will be amazing.

Everything was great until they told us to move to the bar because other people wanted to seat by the window. There were other tables available and we were still enjoying our wine and would have like to finish in peace. After all, that was a $400 bill for 2 people and we were there for not even 2.5 hours. They should plan better on their table distribution. I don’t think it is a good approach to ask a good table to move to the bar while we are still trying to enjoy their dinning experience.

Food was amazing and the view breathtaking. All the staff were very professional and courteous, however, felt a little rushed at times as we were constantly asked if we were finished with the course in front of us by several different staff members.

Clearly the best view in Los Angeles and above and beyond wait staff. Everyone was so professional and friendly. The food was Just ok. Unfortunately the vegetarian options are not that exciting. The drinks and wine pairing were great though. My only issue is the place is starting to appear sloppy. The fabric couches in the bar waiting area all stained from people spilling their drinks. Those should either be cleaned or replaced with leather or vinyl immediately. Looked very uninviting for sitting on. My boyfriend didn’t even want to sit on those not knowing what the stains really are. The women’s bathroom both toilets the seats were broken and barely hanging on by the hinges. Toilet seats are cheap and easy to replace. Also we arrived early for sunset and by the time we left the trash can in the women’s bathroom was overflowing. They weren’t even busy yet. It’s the little things that sometimes make big impressions.

Perfect experience! The last few times we've been, the attitude was somewhat affected. This evening was outstanding from the moment we checked in at the lobby counter to the time we got our car. The food was perfect, drinks delicious and the service impeccable. The views? What is there to say except, on this evening it was as clear as could be and just stunning.
