    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.

    I made a reservation and called ahead when we were going to be late; due to street blocks from a sports game downtown. The hostess stated it was not a problem. Upon arrival, our table was given away and they placed us on the bottom of the waiting list as if we were walk-ins. It was my boyfriend's 30th birthday and going to Compass was my surprise gift to him. Since it was his night I kept silent knowing he was happy. After 30mins we get our table and are not greeted by our server for nearly 10mins.Food took FOREVER to come out and each of our steaks were still mooing. (me- top sirloin, boyfriend- filet mignon. Both ordered at medium rare.) Overall, had a good time cause we love each other but the hostess a snob, food- not worth the price.

    The compass is our new favorite restaurant. The view is breathtaking as you eat your dinner. The food and drinks were the definition of divinity. My cocktail was perfectly mixed, not over powering with sweet and disguised the taste of the alcohol. I can't remember the name. Something with a sunset in the title. The sea bass melted in my mouth. The best I have ever had it made. Everything from even the green chili corn bread, to our roasted beet salad, the filet, and the sea bass. My mouth is watering thinking of going back again.

    I have been here a few times. We take family and friends for special occasions. The quality of the food has always been Great and the service impeccable. This last time on September 13th I took family there. The food was slightly lacking this time around. The service was prompt and okay but not great. We are well aware it's an expensive place to eat but that being said... the expectations for a place like this and what you pay should be awesome. After our meal we gave the server our card to pay. The server took it upon himself to charge our card $217 and he took the cash in the bill fold. Which in the end turned out to be a 33% tip! We were appalled when we found out from our bank the following day. This is theft.
