I'm looking for a restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy a good view as well. There are many restaurants with patios, but they are often at the back with little or no view of anything except for the next building or the fence. Is there any place you can sit outside and enjoy a view as well? The closest i've seen is Ocean and View at the Loews hotel in Santa Monica, but I think their actual outside area is for drinks/lounging only, not for dinner. I'm looking for something around the Santa Monica/Venice area, but i'm willing to travel a bit. Any advice would be much appreciated.
