Concierge.com's insider take:
On the 122nd floor of the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, the world's highest restaurant has the air of a cruise ship in the sky. The decor of its two dining spaces channels an ocean liner and the Starship Enterprise. In the vertiginously priced Grill, a chef sears prime cuts of beef and seafood on a charcoal-burning Josper stove in open view (a good distraction if you discover a fear of heights while dining at 1,350 feet). Prices are more down to earth at The Lounge (try the Wagyu mini burgers). Note that sundown drinks will only cost you twice the general admission to the Burj Khalifa observation deck just two flights up.—Susan Hack
