I like the food at Redrock, but I love the patio experience. It's one of several restaurants overlooking Lake Hefner, the picturesque horizon dotted with summer sailboats. It stands above the rest because of the exquisitely relaxing experience, perfect for a romantic evening or a comforting Sunday brunch. Live music can often be found, and the fire is wonderful, particularly at night.

2. Jazmo'z Bourbon Street Cafe

Any of the restaurants along the beautiful Bricktown Canal would be a good choice, of course, but I love the New Orleans-style selection at Jazmo'z Bourbon Street Cafe. The patio area is covered, located right down along the canal, and you get a good view of both the passing water taxis and the horse-drawn carriages on Oklahoma Avenue above.

3. Nonna's Euro-American Ristorante and Bar

If you have to settle for a view of a city street, you can't get much better than Nonna's, one of my favorite restaurants in OKC. It has also become quite the popular restaurant for movers and shakers in Oklahoma City. The large, open-air or "alfresco" seating area stretches around the restaurant and overlooks the Bricktown streets below. It's a comfortable place to enjoy drinks from the bar or Nonna's fantastic food.

4. Cafe do Brasil

Talk about a fun spot and a great atmosphere. Sample the unique and terrific Brazilian specialties while you enjoy the live music, and then head to the deck of the upstairs Club Bossa Nova. Exotic drinks accompany a nice view of the surrounding midtown area with the downtown skyline just in the distance.

5. Bellini's Ristorante & Grill

I've always been a Bellini's fan, loving the Italian food and brickoven pizzas. The patio seating experience is also something that needs to be mentioned. It wraps around the restaurant and overlooks the Waterford complex's duck pond, a simple and serene view within the surrounding hotel and office complex area. Those working in the area already know this to be a great place to relax and dine outside at the end of a long day.
