    We took a guest from out of town to Compass. She was amazed by the views. The food was great. They had just changed the menu and between us, we ordered and shared a variety of items. The fish dishes were fresh and the sauces and seasonings really accented the taste. The service was outstanding as well. Once settled in you did not realize you were rotating unless you you looked at your surroundings. I think it is still a very special place to dine with guests who are not familiar with Phoenix.

    We have eaten here before, but this time we sat at a lounge table and enjoyed ourselves. It was a slightly casual occasion for us and a last minute decision to go. There was a mix up with our reservation, and we were casually dressed. At first we felt 'banished' to the lounge table, but we still ended up having a great time. The food, view and service has always been good. And we will continue to go back.

    I have gone here before and loved it, which is why took my daughter, and a couple of her friends, for her 18th birthday. We were disappointed in the food. The cornbread was dry. The asparagus seemed old. The mash potatoes were not creamy and the mac and cheese that came with the steak had no flavor. Everyone still had fun and service was wonderful. We were just disappointed in the food. In no way did I feel it was worth over $200. Not a single person cleaned their plate.

    We've dined at the Compass Grill before and have always had great food. The service has not always been to the standard I would expect from a $50 per plate dinner, but the food is definitely outstanding. The last time there were eight of us dining and we had a combination of the pork tenderloin, filet mignon, top sirloin, and salmon. I had the salmon which was served at a good temperature, flakey, and had a lot of flavor. One of the guests had a pork tenderloin that was sampled by several and described as very tender. Several of the guests had top sirloin and all of them were very pleased of the quality and taste of the meat. The top sirloin includes some of the best macaroni and cheese bakes with incredible flavor. All the dishes came with some type of greens. While I know that undercooked vegetables are healthier, most of the guests including myself skipped these which did detract from the meal. A special mention for the peppered corn bread which was great. We were told to ask for more, but it was quite difficult getting the wait staff to come back around to check on us. The meals took longer than expected to make it to our table. There was no one making sure our drinks were refreshed and several of us went quite a while without refills on the tea and sodas we ordered. The eight of us had eaten at a neighborhood diner the night before and got twice the service for half the check. Most of the dinners are $25 to $40 with small but appetizing portion sizes. Several of us had wine which was good, but none of us are large wine drinkers so I wouldn't know if it was bad. For dessert we had the Crème Brulee, chocolate brownie, and a banana split. All were incredible, some of the best I have tasted and well worth the cost. Overall outstanding tasty food with small to adequate portions. Great atmosphere and view, but definitely not the level of service for a supposed five star restaurant. Costly with the tab coming to almost $400 with tip.

    We went Monday night pre concert. It was not busy. The restaurant revolves to a great 360 view. The food has mixed reviews at our table. I had the salmon. It was firm and not overcooked. Another in our party had the vegetarian special and reported it as only so so. A third in our party had the bruchetta which was very large and tasty. The wine list is more than adequate to make everyone happy and the Paris in martini is delectable. Our waiter was attentive at first but did not come back to check us after the food was delivered. We had to wave down a water server to get more wine/drinks. The hostess/rest of the staff were very pleasant. I would call in advance if I have a vegetarian in my group.

    I have always wanted to go to this restaurant since moving to the valley 16 years ago and thought our 12th anniversary would be a good reason to do so. It did not disappoint. Loved the view; we both have great memories here in Phoenix and the view really provides a great opportunity to take a trip down memory lane. Food was great; portion sizes were a little smaller than average but enough to fill you up without over eating. Price was on the high side but the quality of the food, the excellent service and the overall experience make it worth the money. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

    This restaurant is so unique with its revolving lounge. I like to take friends here for special occasions because they are surprised by the slowly turning restaurant. They love it! It is a bit pricey, but for great quality food and drink. It isn't someplace I'd go every weekend but it is great for special events or date night.

    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.

    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.

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.
