Restaurant with a View

Hi All -

A friend is coming to visit from NYC over the holidays and would like to dine at a restaurant with a "view" in Baltimore. Does anyone have any recommendations.

The only place coming to mind right now is Rusty Scupper - is that place any good? I remember it being "The Spot" when I was kid - my parents went their on anniversaries etc....

Thanks and Happy Merry ChrismaHannuKwanzakah.

      Hotel Washington has been closed for months ... is becoming a W. Reports are rooftop dining will be enclosed ... unfortunate if true.

    2. I have not been there myself, but I've been told that Pisces (In the Hyatt Regency) has a fantastic view.

      Also, the top of the Belvedere Hotel has a bar with a great view of the city.

      The Rusty Scupper is just fair, in my opinion.

      1. I like the Rusty Scupper! The food is reliably good, but not surprising.

        1. Pisces in the Hyatt does, indeed, have a grand view. haven't been there in ages. The food used to be quite reliably good, but pricey.

          I agree with Denise regarding the Rusty Scupper. The food is quite good--nothing unusual or trendy.

          I haven't been there, but Water Table in the Renaissance Hotel should offer a nice view.

          Tabrizi's has an interesting menu and a fairly nice view. FoiGras

            Pisces in the Hyatt is either closed or about to be closed. Definitely call first.

          2. Pisces is closed. Watertable has an awesome view, the food is ok, and the service is attentive but a bit on the green side. Also, you could go to dinner then get drinks at a place with a view. The 13th Floor comes to mind.
