Best Restaurants with a View in Las Vegas

The Scenery Is the Main Course at These Restaurants

I'm not shy when I say I love a restaurant with a view. I need a good view. I crave a good view. Give me mediocre food and a good view and I'll be very happy. These restaurants all come through with both good food and a great view. Enjoying a meal with an expanse of lights set out before your eyes can make an evening. Sharing precious words with the backdrop of a perfect view can make a moment extra special. I'm a romantic so a good view is important if I am going for the epic romantic meal in Las Vegas.

    Lago at Bellagio Las Vegas

    From your spot in the dining or out on the patio the view is of the fountains and the Eiffel Tower. This is among the best views with a meal in Las Vegas. The patio during lunch service is about as good as it can get in Las Vegas but the tables indoors and along the large glass windows are just as good.

    All of Las Vegas spreads out from the patio at Rivea as well as from the deck at Skyfall. The views that go along with a romantic meal at Rivea are very hard to beat. End the evening at Skyfall and you can go out on to the patio for some fresh air and great pictures.

    Scarpetta Las Vegas

    Honestly, I would eat the food from Scarpetta if it was being served out of the back of a pick up truck in an alley behind the Fremont Casino in downtown Las Vegas. I don't have to, but I would. The view from the dining room is of the Las Vegas strip and the fountains of Bellagio. If there is a spot where I would ask my wife to marry me again it would be here. I would be eating the polenta and Chef Scott Conant would probably be sweet talking my bride to be. He can cook but I'm funnier so I would not be all that concerned.

    This restaurant is 800 feet above Las Vegas Blvd, it revolves around in a full circle so that you get a view of the entire valley if you stay long enough. The food however is really where the attention must be at. I personally enjoy lunch more than dinner but you might be a romantic and need the flickering lights to get a bit of your romance on. Keep an eye out for people jumping off the tower on Skyjump. It might make you a bit queasy to see the daredevils tempting fate or it make motivate you to tale the leap and ask that special someone for their hand in marriage.

    Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas

    The best place in Las Vegas for a meal with a great view of the strip. If possible grab a table on the patio with a view of the Bellagio fountains. As you dine take in all of Las Vegas in a comfortable and casual atmosphere. This is a favorite spot for breakfast with a view. A crepe or a bagel and too much coffee as you watch the morning foot traffic.

    Look out across Las Vegas Blvd. and enjoy the fountains of Bellagio. The view and atmosphere are very romantic so you might want to keep your emotions in check. Don't do anything crazy, unless that was your initial reason for making the reservations. At that point, if she says no, stand up and demand a refund!

    Large windows look out on to the Las Vegas strip. The Wynn Las Vegas is across the street and the North strip runs away from you. This is a good family dinner spot but I have seen a few people turn this into their romantic spot. The lights are brilliant and the food is affordable.

    If you sit on the patio you get the Fountains and the Las Vegas strip spread out before you. Pop the question here and you are guaranteed a yes! This place is such a favorite of mine that I can no longer be objective about it. I walk in and I already think it is great. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is inviting.

    Hyde Bellagio does not completely count as a restaurant with a great view because it turns into a lounge. However, that is why I have it on this list. You can have a pretty darn good meal before the nightlife crowd walks in with a great view of the fountains. If you stick around you are already in the mood to dance. The food comes from the kitchen right next door and I'll tell you that there is no better way to experience a sampling of fine dining with a great cocktail and a comfortable couch to relax on.
