Best Restaurants with a View in Las Vegas


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.

If you are looking for information on Las Vegas Restaurants be sure to check the restaurants information page or if you want some specifics here are a few resources that should help you find the information you need.


1. Comme Ca at Comsopolitan Las Vegas

The huge windows at Comme Ca are perfect for a meal with a view. The restaurant has a patio with a view of the Las Vegas strip and is a tough place to beat for cocktail with an eye on Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the food that comes out of that kitchen will keep you so busy that you will not see the great view. This is another place that does not need a view to get you to come in because you will be in for a treat.

2. 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 funier so I would be all that concerned.

3. Simon at Palms Place

The view of the pool at Simon makes it a perfect lunch spot for me. It's bright and the food is fresh so it makes me not think about how much more I should be working out. Grab a salad, a sandwich or some sushi and watch the clear, cool water as you sample a few cocktails.

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.

5. 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!

7. Maggiano's at the Fashion Show Mall

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.

Look all the way up the strip from the top of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. The view is spectacular!

9. Olives at the Bellagio Hotel

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.

10. Hyde Bellagio

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 at Circo 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.
