The dining room has 3 levels, so finding a beautiful spot to overlook the desert isn't hard. As you'd expect, the tables are pretty crammed, so moving around is a bit of an issue. The menu isn't extensive as they have to carry everything up...More

Had a wonderful dinner at the Peaks after a day of sightseeing. We had the pork chops which were scrumptious. Service was excellent as well as the view. Make reservations ahead of time.

First, the positive: the view at the top is great. However, the food is just average; nothing horrible, but not just in line with the price you pay. You are left with the feeling that you are basically paying a significant premium for the view....More

Lunch opens at 11. Service was excellent and the meal I had was well prepared and tasty. Loved the cold water as it comes right out of the mountain.

We visited this place for our 45th anniversary...and they made sure it was special. Of course the tram ride was cool. But once up there it got even better. They sat us on the upper level, with a great view and the meal was Devine....More

I think you would want to see the sunset from the balcony on the back side, but probably not the best view, you are on the peak looking down into the valley but the sun sets on the back side of that mountain.

I don't believe their is a dress code at lunch. We were there in tshirts, shorts and running shoes. Not sure about the dinner service but I suspect it is the same.
