Mediterranean | West Hollywood, West Hollywood / Beverly Hills / Mid-Wilshire

On a previous occasion a few years back it was so-so but this time the service was noticeably better, (professional still but warmer, more friendly) food was excellent, again much better than previous visit (would recommend the lamb chops) and ambience was great. More

Contemporary American | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

We just landed a big contract and wanted to celebrate. 71Above was the perfect way to end a perfect day! The wait staff was amazing and attended to our every whim without being obnoxious or ‘looming’ over our shoulder. The views were spectacular and the only way to truly see all of LA and a beautiful sun setting on the ocean. We will hope to be back someday. More

American | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

Primarily vegetarian fare, with optional meat and seafood supplements to the pre fixe menu. Excellent for all the various dietary restrictions and preferences in LA. The counter arrangement made it difficult for a group of 3 to interact. We also had quite a bit to confusion about finding the door to the restaurant, and not being seated until ALL parties arrive for the seating. Because the meal is cooked and served in a single seating, all guests must be ready to go, or just your own party. Now that we know that, it will be easier to navigate for next time. More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
