Restaurant with a view of National Mall, Washington DC

I need a breathtaking view of the mall and its monumental buildings. Would any one have any recommendations and experiences they might want to share?

Washington DC has building height limits, so there really isn't anything like you're looking for. There are no skyscrapers or really tall buildings in the city.

The Doubletree Hotel in Arlington has a lounge with a view, I think it revolves. But it's across the river from Washington and I'm not sure of the actual view.

The "POV" terrace at the W Hotel has a good view of the White House and Washington Monument.

There are no tall buildings in DC. There have been several recent discussions of this topic. The bar and restaurant at the top of the new W Hotel Washington probably has the best view, but compared to a city with skyscrapers, it isn't very grand.

The restaurant at the top of the Marriott Key Bridge (if its still open) has a great view of Georgetown and DC.

Does Charlie Palmer Steak have a rooftop restaurant area? They are located on the Senate side of the Capitol in a location that could have a view.

"Does Charlie Palmer Steak have a rooftop restaurant area? "

Yes, but I believe it's only available for private events.

I just looked at their website, it does appear to be only for private events. Nice views though...
