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

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.

FiveSixty

Five Sixty

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. 

Five Sixty, 300 Reunion Blvd., 50th Floor; 214-571-5784 or wolfgangpuck.com

TowerClub

Tower Club

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.

Reata

Reata

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

ParkCities

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

HGSply

HG Sply Co.

In Lower Greenville, HG Sply Co.'s rooftop has a Paleo-centric menu and boundless views of Downtown. Insider tip: The rooftop gets busy at sundown, so make plans to arrive early and grab great seats by the patio’s edge.

HG Sply Co.; 2008 Greenville Ave.; 469-334-0896 or hgsplyco.com

TeiAn

Tei-An

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. 

Tei-An, 1722 Routh St., #110; 214-220-2828 or tei-an.com
