Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Restaurant With a View?

Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Restaurant With a View?

Recently, I took you with me to Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, CA, a restaurant with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. I've always been a fan of restaurants that offer views of something other than the parking lot or the dry cleaners across the street — although, of course, it's also important that the establishment keeps it focus on the food, too.

In addition to Sam's, I also happen to love the sweeping bay windows that overlook Ocean Beach (and the Pacific) at The Beach Chalet. And in Chicago, nothing beats The Signature Room, especially at night. Tell me: What are your favorite scenic restaurants?

Oh, and Marine Room in San Diego. You feel like you're sitting on the beach if you can get a window seat.

Yes Canlis in Seattle, but I also LOVE Ray's as well. The Boathouse is nice, but the Cafe upstairs has a deck and it's beautiful!

I love the Cornelian Room in SF. But I'm also with cheifdishwasher, I totally love sitting outside and people watching. La plaza de corredera in Cordoba is perfect for that!

Here in Atlanta, you can't beat the Sundial. It's a rotating restaurant at the top of the Westin and it has great views of the city. The hubs and I love going there for special occasions.

I live in Houston and I used to work at Pappadeaux in Kemah, and it had an amazing view! It was right on the water, right across from the Kemah Boardwalk, and we would always watch the boats go by. It was really pretty.

Locally here in Vegas: 1) The Eiffel Tower Restaruant at the Paris Hotel on the strip, has a great view of the strip and of the fountain show at the Bellagio across the street. 2)Panevino's has a nice view of the airport and it's fun to watch the airplanes take off and land, plus they have a beautiful Italian garden right outside the windows if you'd rather focus on that than the strip and the airport. 3) The Stratosphere Restaurant -another great view of the strip although I prefer the Eiffel Tower. Some favorites from our previous hometown: Jackosnville FL: 1) The Chart House has a great view of downtown and the St. Johns River. 2) Clark's Fish Camp a nice view of Julington Creek. A bonus to this restaurant is that it is very casual and not too pricey (unlike most other restaurants with great views).
