Although we are currently under renovation, we are still excited to share this awesome mention by The Infatuation!

LA has smog and traffic and a lot of botched nose jobs, but when you get past all that, this city can be downright beautiful. After all, we have mountains everywhere and that giant blue thing we call the Pacific Ocean. And our restaurants have taken full advantage. This city’s patio game is strong, but the views that many of them provide are just as good. Whether you’re trying to impress a lover or a boss or you simply want to stare at some pretty sh*t, here are 17 restaurants with the best views in Los Angeles.

#3 The Castaway
It’s not every day you’re going to be able to convince people to drive to Burbank for a fancy dinner, but when it involves The Castaway, you make it happen. Yes, the food is pricey and somewhat average, but you aren’t here for that. You’re here to huddle around one of the outdoor fire pits with a group of friends or a special person and gaze out over the (shockingly) beautiful San Fernando Valley.

Our sister property Whiskey Red's made the list too! View the full list of restaurants with a view here


"If a friend or coworker asks you to recommend a bar or restaurant with views around Burbank, chances are you've mentioned a big-window'd eatery with a name that sounds as though it was born on the beach, not high up in the Verdugo Hills, back in 1963.

But The Castaway Restaurant has become a go-to, inland, mimosas-and-more brunch landmark over the last five-plus decades, even after a fire in 1993 meant extensive rebuilding.

Now the brunch-famous spot, which enjoys wide San Fernando Valley vistas from its veranda, is shuttering again, but this time for a planned, "multi-million dollar renovation" that's expected to take around six months."
