A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant, and not around the neighbor's emblazoned wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of contemporary American fine dining and drinks at The Sky Room in Long Beach.
The Sky Room is located atop the historic Breakers Hotel, providing diners dazzling 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and the Long Beach skyline. The menu, described as California-eclectic, reinvents American cuisine to engage all 79 human taste buds. Start a meal with ahi tuna carpaccio with kalamata olive tapenade, quail egg, and brioche ($19) or fresh lump crab cakes ($17) before the culinary bell rings in the main event with Kobe New York steak ($69) or scallops served with sweet potato dumplings and pickled vegetables ($33). Risotto comes bearing gifts of exotic mushrooms, spinach, tomato, and parmigiano reggiano ($25), and can be paired with a selection from the extensive wine list.
Since opening its doors in 1926 with a battering ram made from naturally fallen timber, The Sky Room has been a rendezvous point for legendary legends including Elizabeth Taylor, Babe Ruth, and John Wayne. Today executive chef Juan Carlos Olvera continues the restaurant's legacy by wooing dining couples who are busy wooing each other into a restaurant built upon fine dining and dancing.
Zagat gives the food at The Sky Room a good rating and the décor earns an excellent rating. OpenTable reviewers give the restaurant an average of 4.4 stars, more than 100 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, and TripAdvisors give The Sky Room an average of 3.5 owl eyes.
- Aptly named for its “fabulous” panoramic views, this “’20s-style” supper club atop the Breakers in Long Beach is a “special-occasion” mainstay, what with its “elegantly” attired servers, live music and dancing on weekends. – Zagat
- Memorable experience from arrival to departure. Request honored for window seat with scenic view of the harbor. Excellent menu with presentation timed for dancing several numbers to great band music. – OpenTable.com reviewer who dined on 10/9/2010
