We picked the Equinox Restaurant atop the Swissotel for two reasons, the outstanding reputation and the view. We asked for a table by the window (extra charge of $20, but worth it) we ordered the Chateaubriand and it was perfect. The staff was friendly attentive and professional, no hurry at all...we could have stayed until closing. We luckily chose to go up to the City Lights Lounge and it was spectacular as well...incredible views and a smaller upscale vibe with live music. Excellent evening.
