Restaurant review and reservation website has named three Las Vegas eateries on its list of the Top 100 Scenic View Restaurants released today.

The Eiffel Tower restaurant at the Paris, Mandarin Bar at Mandarin Oriental and Top of the World restaurant at Stratosphere all made the grade on the unranked list thanks to their distinct sky-high vistas of the Strip.

Nevada claimed six restaurants overall. Those outside Las Vegas are Big Water Grille in Incline Village, Chart House Restaurant in Lake Tahoe and Edgewood Restaurant in Stateline.

The site based the list, which spans 29 states, on its body of more than 5 million dining reviews of 15,000 restaurants from verified OpenTable diners between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013. Qualifying restaurants were determined by the percentage of top-scoring reviews for which “scenic view” was selected as a special feature.

“A table at any of these winning restaurants is sure to be the crown jewel of your travel and dining experiences,” OpenTable Chief Dining Officer Caroline Potter said in a statement. “In a single sitting, you can take in the very best vistas of each city while feasting on fresh, local ingredients and specialties to help you capture the true essence of the region.”
