    My team and I were in Phoenix for a conference and our first dinner at Compass was so good that we came back the next night! Our server, John, was wonderful and treated us to some of the desserts on the menu which was very nice of him! Overall, we loved the view, the food and all of the staff at Compass and will definitely be back the next time I am in town! Thanks again for a great experience!

    Downtown Phoenix is not known for great restaurants but the Compass is an exception. The revolving view from its 24th floor venue is intriguing and the food doesn't disappoint. Our service was very professional and the recommendations made to us were all quite tasty. We will definitely return - both for the view and the food.

    Everything was very good as far as service and food. We were under the impression that this was a place to dress up for, so we did. Was disappointed to see people dressed in flip flops and shorts. Thought it brought down the ambiance. We all enjoyed our dinner, the steaks were cooked perfectly and just melt in your mouth. We will definitely go back for another special occasion, probably during the winter months so the guests might dress more appropriate.

    We had an enjoyable dinner at the restaurant with the major influence being the view of the city. The restaurant is at the top of the Hyatt Regency and slowly rotates giving a terrific view of the downtown area. The food was good but to our group it's the view that makes the visit worthwhile.

    The view is amazing!! The air conditioner really works - being on the chilly side. Our steaks were over done and the service a bit slow. We had tickets to a show or we would have sent our plates back to the kitchen. We both had ordered the steak on a recommendation from the hotel staff. I don't think I would recommend this place based on our experience.

    The food was good, though if you are sensitive to salt I recommend you be very careful. The waiting staff is very professional and polite, and the location is not bad at all (parking right next door or valet parking if you need). The prices are incredibly high though and dinner for two cost us in the ballpark of 150. Again, the view is fantastic and you can't really beat it, but if you're just looking to grab a meal and catch up I'd go elsewhere. If you're looking for a place to go for a special occasion, its not bad at all. Stick to drinks and dessert.

    I would recommend this restaurant as a romantic date location. The views are probably the best you can get of our beautiful city and it's surroundings. We had a reservation for sunset time, and Phoenix sunsets don't disappoint. The food was lack luster. I think what we had could have been eaten at any of the steak house chains, but You aren't going for the food in my opinion.

    I had been to the Compass Room probably 20 years ago with my girlfriend at the time. Friday night we were celebrating our 18th anniversary together and the restaurant was everything I remembered it to be. Very nice evening. The Phoenix skyline has grown up a little since then, but the Compass Room is still all we remembered it was.

    Everything was very good, but my steak was a bit tough and so covered with french fires I could barely see my steak. When I asked for steak sauce I was given a small pitcher with about an ounce of sauce. I had to ask for a refill. The lady whom I took to be the manager slighted us. She talked to the people behind us and a few people in front of us, but failed to stop at our table. There were not that many people there that evening. I suppose she didn't want our opinion that evening.

    The view was amazing and the service was great! Our hostess and waitress were all very kind and accommodating. My main complaint was with the food I ordered. I order something with chicken and it was extremely salty, to the point I could hardly finish it. It wasn't flavorful, just straight up salt. But dessert was delicious! I had the creme bule trio and ate every bite. So I would recommend skipping the entree and going straight to dessert.

    Outstanding ambiance! Carefully controlled lighting made for a delightful experience of panoramic city views. Thoughtful, kind staff, even though I was not a big spender. The knowledgeable and gracious server maintained the perfect balance of careful attention and respectful distance. Dinner plates were full (but not hefty) portions, appealingly presented, balanced and flavorful. The pork loin was fabulous. Creme Brulee Trio dessert was fun. A truly unique venue for truly special occasions.

    My g/f and I showed up about 30-40 min late for our reservation, however the hostess was able to still find us a great seat next to the window with a view. Noted on the reservation it was our anniversary and the waiter and waitress provided the superior service and referring to us by name all night. Food was excellent as well as the wine we ordered. Only downside, due to rain earlier in the day, the restaurant was not revolving that night, everything else was perfect.

    A beautiful place to show off the nightscape of Phoenix and great food. Unfortunately for us there was a table seated nearby with four very loud preteen children and that made conversation difficult. On the up side our waitress offered us a sample of a new dessert and introduced us to its creator-chef. Yummy and totally unexpected!

    The Compass Arizona Grill holds a special place in my heart as this restaurant is where my husband took me on our first date 24 years ago. This year, I faced the difficult decision whether or not to celebrate our anniversary as my husband passed away 2 months ago. I didn't know if I could muster the emotional strength it would take to go here. Yet, I didn't want the opportunity to slip by. Therefore, I made dinner reservations & brought my 4 children to accompany me. I was determined to celebrate his life, our marriage, and reminisce about the night that started it all. The staff & management went above & beyond to make me feel comfortable on this important day. We enjoyed every aspect of the evening & now my family has a new tradition! :-)

    If you're looking for a romantic dinner or a nice place to eat for a special occasion, look no further. The menu is a bit on the pricy side which is why I wouldn't eat here regularly but I will definitely be returning for those special occasions. The service is fantastic and the food didn't take too long to come out. In case you are wondering about their drink menu as I only saw wine when I looked online, they do have cocktails and draft beers in case you aren't much of a wine drinker.

    Having lived in Arizona for well over a decade, the Compass Arizona Grill has always been a favorite of mine. Staffed by a professional wait staff, these servers know how to deliver superior service with elegance. An extensive wine list and elegantly plated and portioned meals complement a breathtaking 360º view of the valley. Over the years I've lived here I've brought many friends and family to this restaurant for the experience alone. However, as much as I love the ambience, the chefs need to work on the quality of food served. Yes, it looks incredibly beautiful on the plate but my mashed potatoes were dry and fell apart into crumbles. The green beans were undercooked and did not taste fresh. The salmon however was cooked to perfection.
