Center City dinner with a view?

My wife and I are going out for our anniversary, and we'd like a Center City choice that has a good view of the city. We're used to eating at ground level--does anyone have a recommendation for a nice romantic meal higher up?

  1. Bistro St. Tropez is in the Market Street Design Center (24th & Market), on the 4th floor. It overlooks the river, and in the evening the lights below are lovely. Here is the web site:

    1. XIX at the Bellevue has a nice view.

        That will probably give you a better view of CC than Bistro St. Tropez.

      2. I second XIX at the Bellevue. Excellent food and service, beautiful room, plus the view from the 19th floor.

          And, on a warm evening, you can get a table on one of the small outside balconies (the view west is best).

        2. Have to agree you can't beat XIX's view.

            Thanks, everyone--XIX sounds perfect. I made reservations tonight--I think she'll love it.
