7 Restaurants with Incredible Views
Why settle for dining at street level?
Truthfully, the only thing better than dining alfresco is enjoying a meal high above the fray. Here, seven restaurants that feature seriously stunning views.
Ser Steak + Spirits
Located on the 27th floor of the historic Hilton Anatole, this spot has an unobstructed view of the Dallas skyline. The modern twist on the traditional steakhouse is also quiet and spacious, making it ideal for date night or hosting out-of-town guests.
Reunion Tower's distinctive glowing ball is a prominent feature of the Dallas skyline and is home to Wolfgang Puck’s Asian-style restaurant on the 50th floor. (The name Five Sixty refers to its location 560 feet above the ground.) It has floor-to-ceiling windows and the entire room revolves so diners can get a 360-degree view of the city.
Looking for a sophisticated rendezvous with an impressive selection of bourbon? Then become a member of the Tower Club, which is located on the 48th floor of Thanksgiving Tower in Downtown. The private business club has views of the Museum District, Klyde Warren Park and Uptown, making those monthly dues (starting at $105) well worth the price.
Iconic and so Fort Worth, Reata is a Western-meets-fine-dining kind of brasserie. Grab a spot on the patio overlooking Sundance Square for happy hour and order a Clear Fork cherry vodka limeade and jalapeño elk sausage to snack on as the sun goes down.
Reata, 310 Houston St.; Ft. Worth; 817-336-1009 or reata.net
Park Cities Club
A true hidden gem, the restaurant is located on the 17th floor of the Sherry Lane Place office building.Another members-only spot, it's known for doting on its clientele (and for its classic surf-and-turf entrees). The space overlooks Highland Park, University Park and Preston Hollow, and you can even see Downtown and the AAC at Victory Park.
Park Cities Club, 5956 Sherry Lane, 17th Floor; 214-373-0756 or parkcityclub.net
This place is known for its Japanese cuisine (you must order the soba noodles), but the rooftop patio is also worth a visit. You'll see One Arts Plaza on one side and Downtown and Uptown on the others. We suggest making a reservation for dinner and then staying for cocktails on said patio.
