Diner Reviews
  • "I'm not one to usually go to fancy restaurants, but for my birthday I wanted to try something different. I've stayed at the Hyatt hotel in downtown Phoenix a few times before, but this was my first time going to the Compass Grill; at the top of the hotel. It was my birthday & I informed them of this when I made my reservation. The seating was nice and the view was amazing, but the restaurant turns incredibly slowly; maybe a full revolution once an hour. There was two people in our party and we ordered our food; two steaks (one well done with no pink). It came out 'medium' at best. Also there was no side option other than asparagus. Staff came around seldomly. Bacon on lettuce wedge salad was old and full of grease. Wouldn't go there again."

  • "Our service was impeccable. From what I observed, the staff was very attentive to our table and all others! Incredibly on point, throughout the evening. If we return, it would be for the scenic view and the wonderful staff. From the start, even the hostess was very friendly and kind. Note to kitchen: the GF chicken is too small for the price of the plate! Also, the mustard sauce in the potato salad needs to be scaled back! It was too tart; and hard to eat the potatoes and green beans, with all that mustardy sauce all over the plate. I scraped the sauce off, just to eat the veggies. A small House salad should be offered with dinner! My guest's Filet was undercooked, even for Filet Mignon; needed a few more minutes under the broiler!"

  • "Went to take my special lady for our anniversary and when we ordered our desert, it was brought out to us and we were congratulated on our milestone and it was written in the desert. A nice touch to a special evening."

  • "I came here to dine for our anniversary for a romantic and quiet setting but did not turn up being the case. There was a big group of people facing us as we were on the edge table and were very talkative. I had to asked to be moved especially since another group right next to them were handing awards, clapping, so obviously being very loud. I was not a big fan of the layout with having people face you with their seating arrangement, but the move was certainly an improvement. My other complaint was how under-cooked the filet mignon was for my wife, though my new new york strip was done right. We both asked for it to be done medium-rare plus which is closer to medium than rare. I think the issue was with her cut being a lot thicker though."

  • "We had filet mignon and asparagus which were excellent. However we were shocked at my $8.00 salad, which consisted of a cut wedge of iceberg lettuce, 3 grape tomatoes cut in half and 2 cold strips of bacon on the side. My 12 year old makes better salads"

  • "We first entered and immediately loved the views, we arrived just at sunset BEAUTIFUL! The hostess and wait staff were very attentive and friendly, the atmosphere and ambiance was quiet with just the perfect low lighting- It sets a wonderful mood for any occasion. We were impressed with the menu choices and then the food was served...Not so good the Sea Bass was not cooked well and the flavor was nonexistent. The New York Steak left so much to be desired, lacking in texture and flavor...It had to be drench it in sauce to eat. We wanted to love this place it fits everything we were looking for with views and atmosphere...It's quite unfortunate that the food was so poor."

  • "This restaurant is a perfect way to begin an evening in down town Phoenix. We had a lovely dinner, with exceptional service and a gorgeous view. After dinner we had a short walk to our venue. We enjoyed our show, walked back to the Hyatt and our car was waiting for us at Valet Parking. We avoided the large crowds and enjoyed the evening walk. This is our favorite routine for seeing shows in Phoenix."

  • "The view at sunset was lovely - So interesting to watch the landscape change as the sun goes down (remember your sunglasses)! Small plaques on the wall describing the view as we rotated were a wonderful touch. The flat bread and duck tostada appetizers were WONDERFUL. Those in our party who ordered steak or salmon REALLY enjoyed their meals. My daughter had Beef Bolognese - nothing special. I had the cheese-stuffed eggplant: Disappointing - the eggplant was fibrous and hard to cut or chew. The dish was mostly cheese with just a thin eggplant covering, and not much taste. I was also disappointed they did not have the wine I wanted. My $40 birthday cake was okay, but our server's birthday serenade was the highlight - great service overall."

  • "Great place to get a great 360 view of Phoenix. The staff is friendly from the hostess to the wait staff. Our waiter even gave us a complimentary desert to take home since we were too full to have one at the restaurant."

  • "Hostest seemed very busy and rushed. She lacked in portraying the relaxing energy that would have better fit the dinning environment. Asparagus was cooked amazingly. Their mac and cheese was incredibly strong. To much for my taste however I am sure others would enjoy it. Steaks were good. Not amazing but good. Worth the dollars I would say."

  • "We have celebrated our Anniv at Compass for the past 37 years. And during that time Jerry has been our server several of those years. The food thru the years has gone up and down in choice and flavor, but this visit the food was excellent. Compliments to the Chef!! It was our 50th Anniv and one of our granddaughter's 16th birthday that we celebrated this year."

  • "Since the elevator started zooming up to the 24th floor it was a awe inspiring experience. The service was fantastic, the salmon was delicious and it's the setting your in that really brings everything together. Great romantic experience for a great price. I did not understand how my receipt showed one charge but my Chase notifications showed another and I tipped cash."

  • "Compass Grill is an awesome place for great food with amazing views of the Phoenix area, the surrounding mountains, and (of course) sunsets. The ambiance is wonderful for couples while also being great for family events. One of my favorites! Our family has a tradition (begun by my aunt who lives in Tempe) that we eat there the last night of any visit to Phoenix / Arizona. We plan to continue this tradition for sure."

  • "We dined at Compass Arizona Grill on July 4th. After volunteering to move us away from the table with three bratty kids, our evening became memorable. From our first server (don't remember name) to our new server John, the service was first rate. They were courteous, helpful and not hovering. The food was excellent. Maybe the best steak and salmon we've ever had!! I will recommend the Arizona Grill to everyone I know."

  • "You are mainly paying for the view at this restaurant, which is incredible. The food is so-so. The best courses were the salad and dessert course. The main course was a bit disappointing. My husband and I ordered different entrees and both were fairly under seasoned and the meat was a little under cooked. He asked for his steak mid rare and it was rare. My pork tenderloin was pretty pink. I know tenderloin is left with some pink in the middle, but mine had too much pink. The service was really good. All in all it was a good experience."

  • "but the food this time was not the value I have come to expect. 36 $ for a NY strip.... i want to see it not covered with inedible potato fries what the heck where those potato slivers? . Others in the party had the food stacked like pancakes potato- bean- fish....wow whats the chef thinking- plating of the food was horrible, predictable and the potato inedible, Corn bread was seriously dry, Food was as average as it gets...when you pay premium you expect premium....I could have done that at home for a party of 4 and probably done a better job. No passion in this food....Go for the view."

  • "The location and atmosphere were wonderful. The young lady that served us was so friendly and personable. The food was just so so. My husband and I had the salmon and it was over cooked and dry and the mashed potatoes were very plain and stiffened up quickly like boxed potato flakes do at cheap restaurants. Many places serve mashed and they are something you can jazz up so many ways, garlic, poblano chiles, curry, spring onions, etc. yours had no flavor. The pace of dinner is also so slow to invite conversation but this seemed uber slow."

  • "The food was okay, i ordered the salmon and ive had better and for cheaper. But only reason its worth every penny is the enviornent and the view, it is a really romantic place to dine. Its worth every penny."
