Compass Arizona Grill - Hyatt Regency Phoenix
Mother's Day 2013Tired of waiting on my kids to make a decision on where to take Mom for Mother's Day I chose a place I had never been but had wanted to since living in Phoenix over 20 years. Service was excellent.Had to wait 20 minutes beyond our reservation time, however, it was Mother's day so we understood. Food was a bueatiful array of standard buffet fare. Boiled shrimp were super. May now try for a romantic dinner. Views are excellent from any table.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with a great viewMy party had a fantastic mothers day buffet lunch, the food was delicious and the service was top notch. The restaurant rotates so the view was always changing, the kids especially liked it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved anniversary dinner at CompassCompass is someplace we would return to again with out-of-town guests or for a special occasion. The service was very good and the ambiance was cozy and not so noisy like many restaurants are these days. The caprese was light and delicious and the scallops and tuna tartar are dishes we would gladly eat for every meal, if possible. So GOOD! It was great to have cocktails that were done right. The Moscow Mule is a wonderful drink!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerWent there for my anniversary and it passed all expectations.

The staff was wonderfully accomodating. They view was impeccable. It is definately a budget buster but would be perfect for a special occasion or romantic outing.

We are planning to return for dinner very soon!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place and great teamGreat view of the valley and Arizona sunset. Service was great.

Any requests or feedback always reached the right person.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great, theThe service was great, the food was delicious, and you cannot beat the view of the city, especially at night. My wife and I were talking about how great it would be to eat at the restaurant during one of our monsoon storms so we could see the city and all of the lightning during the storm. We will be going back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWow, what a view!I took my fiancé and friends to celebrate a special occasion, and oh man! The view is phenomenal!

Me and my fiance went for a romantic date night. The view of the city during the sunset was breath-taking. Our service and the food far exceeded any expectations that we had. We would highly recommend the Compass Grill if you are looking for the perfect romantic night out.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat views!We were in town for a meeting at the Hyatt and had dinner our last night at the Compass. The floor revolves and allowed for a 360 degree view of the city.
We had the Kobe steak, scallops and eggplant. Everyone stated their meal was excellent. The scallops were a little gritty but is sometimes expected.
Our server, Patty, was excellent and attentive. Highly recommended!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server, Elizabeth, wasOur server, Elizabeth, was outstanding. She was friendly and very accommodating to the two pre-schoolers with us. She made each of us feel special. The food was delicious.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWould be 5 stars but I feltWould be 5 stars but I felt the steaks were choice cuts and should have been prime. I had aged ny my party had rib eye. We all thought meat was tougher than it should be4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 8 yr old daughter askedOur 8 yr old daughter asked to have her birthday dinner here after hearing about the view and how the restaurant spins. She and her older sister had a wonderful time. The food came out hot and was perfectly seasoned. The service was spectacular. We never needed to ask for refills and our server Maria timed everything so perfectly so we weren't served our meal before we were done with our salad and we didn't have to wait long between each course. Her assistant was so patient and helpful with our girls. She was always near by to help but not in the way. It's been a long time since we've been to a restaurant with such great service and good food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view! Food was cookedGreat view! Food was cooked perfectly, presentation was spot on and tasted even better! The server was fabulous - good sense of humor and was always there at the right time. We will be back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMdeliveredbeautiful scenery with exceptional food and service. Third time eating at this establishment and I was not disappointed. I do suggest that people try the soups and salads because they are hidden gems, especially the eggplant bisque.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have a good diningWe always have a good dining experience at the Compass. It's a hit for sure.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, a tad bit over-pricedThe view and service cannot be beat! The food is decent, but not worth the prices - but of course you're paying more for the ambiance then the actual food. I highly suggest this place to take your lady for a special occasion!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was great andThe restaurant was great and the food was spectacular.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM360 degree view of downtown360 degree view of downtown Phoenix.

We went to Compass to celebrate 6 months together though she had no idea where I was taking her for dinner. I wanted give her a glimpse into how much she means to me and how much I love her. Since the moment we went up the elevator to her first glimpse of a moving floor I could see she was already in Wonderland. Compass didn't hold back from that point and truly delivered in food, atmosphere, view, and especially service. Receiving our dessert with candles and a chocolate note was the perfect way to close out the dining experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent view and diningThe staff was very courteous and attentive. Overall the three of us had salads, bisque and steaks with vegetables. Overall the steak, vegetables and bisque were outstanding. The Caesar salads were poor because the dressing was flavorless, but that did not spoil our meal by any means. The view was terrific. If I could change the ambiance music, I would. It was like elevator music for senior citizens. But that would not stop me from returning. An excellent meal and great service overall.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch was outstanding!Easter Brunch was outstanding!

The entrees were adequate but the sides were nothing to write home about. The excellent service and great view more than made up for the mediocre food. Our waitstaff gave excellent service. They always seemed to know when we needed something without seeming to hover.My husband and I got a pleasant surprise at the end of our meal, an anniversary dessert. I would go there again and recommend the restaurant to friends and family. But make the menu worth the high prices.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice dinner. OverallA very nice dinner. Overall a pretty good experience, however, the service was a bit on the slow side and the menu is just a little overpriced.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my Mom for her 88thI took my Mom for her 88th birthday. She hadn't been to the restaurant in many years. We had a nice time and the staff was wonderful. Memorable experience.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you for the prompt andThank you for the prompt and great service. Food was delicious. Dessert was a must have.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBreathtaking views! VeryBreathtaking views! Very good food and excellent service.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCompass was a little overCompass was a little over priced, but what do you expect with a rotating restaurant? The food was great, our server was AMAZING, and my boyfriend had a great time on his birthday. 2 whole spins! I highly recommend Compass for a special occasion or romantic night out. They have a great late-night happy hour too.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I loved the restaurant.My wife and I loved the restaurant. All my meals were delicious, however, my wife was not too keen on the deep-fried eggplant dish. She said it was just a little bland and wasn't expecting so much of it to be deep fried. The was the only knock she had, everything else was wonderful.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Compass Room is a fun,The Compass Room is a fun, expensive, unique dining experience. We enjoyed dinner there before going across the street to Symphony Hall. The service was fantastic; well timed, friendly, and attentive. The menu is full of creative options. The wedge salad was delicious and had enough toppings to make each bite tasty. The scallops were underdone and required A LOT of chewing! With the corn risotto it made for a tasty but very mild meal. I would have loved to have some seasoning on the scallops and a little color on the plate, even just garnish. My husbands steak and the yams side were great and well cooked. The experience is really fun as you enjoy a slow turn around the city (bring sunglasses, it's bright!), the interior is dated but nice.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIn a pinch for a place toIn a pinch for a place to eat 45 minutes before the Eric Clapton concert. OpenTable gave us many choices but the 1000 pt reservation drew me to Compass. My wife and I entered the lobby of the hotel and saw a board showing the menu, liked the mix of plates and I clicked confirm. By the time we were 25 stories up they had the reservation and we were seated 5 minutes later as we were early for the 7pm reservation. Once seated our waitress stopped by took our drink order and we placed our order quickly letting her know we had to be at the concert by 7:30. We knew we would be late for the opening of the show. The food and ambiance well made up for the being late. We definitely will go back when we have time to relax and enjoy really enjoy!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMsteak was good. wish it includedsteak was good. wish it included a starch, was never offered at time of ordering.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAll in All a good timeWe took our daughter for her birthday basically for the view. Husband and I had the rib eye which was very dry.The rib eye had some sort of au jus that looked like the scrapings from the bottom of the pan, it was Gross. Daughter had the baked chicken which was very good and son had chicken nuggets, they were also good. We were seated very quickly and we did make reservations. Had to wait a very long time for our food to arrive, but our waiter comped us with an extra serving of dessert so I guess all in all it was a wash. It is expensive but you are paying for the view. If there are at least 4 of you dining, don't expect to get out of there for less than $100. plus3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
