    This was our first experience at the Compass Room. We really enjoyed our view. The iced tea was excellent but the food was less than desirable. The jalepeno cornbread was the best part of our meal. The salad had no flavor. The sauce on our steak was the most bland item we had. I might return but only for dessert. NOT FOR AN ACTUAL MEAL!

    The view and the overall ambiance was quite good. The service and food was not. It felt like service was not in balance with the restaurant's setting. I was disappointed as this was a special evening for us. We both were in agreement that we would not return for a meal, but might return during the early evening for drinks and the view.

    Dined on 9/6/2008
    The restaurant was very nice, dark and intimate. We enjoyed the view of the city and watching the planes land and leave the airport. The food was good. For the appetizers, the Grilled Bison with Garden Gazpacho was delicious, but the Drunken Shrimp was pricey for the portions you received and felt like it was something we could have made at home. The entrées, the New York Steak was nice and tender, and the Barbeque Ahi Tuna melted in your mouth. Service was very slow for the amount of people that were there that evening and the waiter never told us his name. Overall we would definitely go back to try some of the other items on the menu and show to out of town guest.

    EatWellTellAll
    Dined on 8/30/2008
    The price has increased dramatically over the recent years, limiting this to more of a special occassion place. But the food hasn't attained the level of the new prices. Appetizers are very good, but fairly expensive and not at all suitable for sharing, and the server should have noted this. Some entrees were excellent, but others very dissappointing. For example, the tuna was thin and hence tough, dry and overcooked. This is almost unheard of nowadays. Given the price, this was just not acceptible. Although they offered to replace, it wasn't clear the cook could get it right with the way the dish was presented. A previous dinner with the same dish as part of a medley was exceptional, so it seems hit or miss as to what you get.

    Pricy, but great for a special occasion. I took my wife there for our anniversary. Watching the sunset with a 360 degree view of the valley was great. The food was good but the selection is limited. Parking is also expensive. They do validate but you only get $2 off per hour. With tip parking was still $25. Throw that in with food and tip that ran $148 and it was an expensive evening. It was a romantic atmosphere with great views.

    The service was excellent no complaint there. The food was overpriced the vegetables literally non-existent. My steak was undercooked as well as tough. Wine was overpriced by 20.00 the same bottle is 20.00 anywhere else you raise the prices 50-100%. I absolutely would not give you 2 stars for this as far as the food goes it's comparable in quality and quantity to a macdonalds happy meal.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    It was a nice dining experience but I felt that the seating hostess did not take into consideration it being our first time and wanting a table with a view. The sun was setting and she sat us directly facing into the sun. Then, as a FEW other customers came in it seemed the hostess sat them all in clumps, nearby in the same vicinity as us and crowding the area, when they could have been spread out to provide more privacy for conversation and special moments. Finally, for such a high class place the ladies bathroom had no soap, we arrived at opening so it should have been full. In closing, our waitress was wonderful and attentive. It is no wonder she has been there since the beginning.

    everything was wonderful. The service was impeccable. I let them know ahead that it was our anniversary, and we were provided a window table and no one was seated near us. It probably helped that it was a week night, but still thoughtful of them. Their service really brings their 'A' game and make you feel very comfortable. Our waiter John was perfect, he was always one step ahead of us, and chatted with us with the perfect balance to make it enjoyable conversation without so much that it interrupted our dinner. The food was very good and creative. I would love to go back again.
