A word from Different Pointe of View
Poised 1,800 feet above the Valley of the Sun, Different Pointe of View offers guests breathtaking views second only to the outstanding regional American cuisine that features fresh local and organic ingredients. The restaurant's mountaintop location and floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the desert landscape, the city's twinkling lights in the distance and Arizona's brilliant sunsets. No restaurant in the state has a longer streak of consecutive AAA four-diamond awards and Sunset Magazine named it one of the top 10 mountaintop restaurants in the nation. Valley residents have come for years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, romantic evenings or just treat themselves to one of the most unique Arizona experiences. The Terrace Room Lounge, next to the restaurant, features one of the largest patios and a nine foot fire pit on the cliff side Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Time your reservation to enjoy the spectacular sunset view from this classic mountaintop restaurant! We took advantage of their summer fixed-price menu of 3 items for $39. The food was very good, but people come here mainly for the view, which is marvelous. This time we had a waiter who was overly formal and not very friendly--but on past visits we have had waiters who made us feel a lot more welcome, so I think we were just unlucky this time. Visit this unique Phoenix restaurant for your next special occasion dinner and you won't be disappointed."

  • "Most amazing view and great food - only complaint is that I requested window table and we were seated literally adjacent to the kitchen. Made advanced reservation so disappointing but a great special occasion experience."

  • "My girlfriend and I dined here for our one year anniversary. I let the restaurant know the reason for our visit and they went above and beyond to make our experience incredible. The manager greeted us and took us to our table while making a point to wish us a happy anniversary. He was able to recommend a wine that suited us both as my girlfriend prefers an off-dry red and I prefer dry. He picked a perfect medium. Our wait staff was exceptional and I don't believe we went more than 5 minutes without having water filled or being asked how we were enjoying the meal. I would highly recommend it for any romantic dinner and the prices were not extraordinary for a restaurant with this quality."

  • "I took my friend for his birthday dinner. I was a little worried because some of the reviews about the food weren't too great. I'm so glad we went here. I loved this place. The view was unbelievable. The food was delicious. The only issue I had was that the service was a little slow. But because the place was absolutely amazing the wait didn't really bother me as much. I would definetly go back to this restaurant again."

  • "The views are stunning. Just go and experience it for yourself. We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent with larger portions, which we elected to share, allowing us to try an array of items, on the menu. Our waiter was so professional, knowing the menu offerings and sharing his personal favorites. We will continue to go back and have recommended this restaurant to friends and family."

  • "The setting and views are unique. It's a marvelous place to dine. Not only the patrons, but the wait staff loves this place. Our waiter has been working there for more than 20 years and his love for the restaurant and serving people was evident in the excellent service we received. And he wasn't the most tenured server. The view is fabulous and the food is prepared in accordance to make sure it is an extraordinary dining experience."

  • "waiter is good, manager is better. our waiter is good, but not that good. we poured our water and other waiters came to help, not ours. he is slow after all. the lobster soup is extremely good! the entree tastes awful, the steak is specially awful.the dessert is terrible! the chiffon cake disappointed us a lot, the ice-cream, chocolate one, is melting once I got it. I highly suggest you shall change your chef for the dessert! it is not that kinda dessert such great restaurant shall have!"

  • "It was our first visit to this resturant with my wife and I. The food was amazing and definatly worth the price. We enjoyed the great serivce from valet parking down to the dinner and dessert. They were very friendly and gave us a little extra dessert for our 1st year anniversary. Most importantly the place had a beautiful scenic view and definatly a very romantic place to take your spouse. I would strongly reccomend more people to come and enjoy this beautiful restuarant especially couples!"

  • "My husband and I went to Different Pointe of View when we felt the need to celebrate nothing in particular. It's a fantastic restaurant. The service was remarkable - our server was so energetic about the menu items that I wanted to eat everything he describe. Our food was also delicious (I had the vegetarian dinner option, and my husband enjoyed a fantastic white fish special), and I particularly enjoyed the table bread and spread options they provided. Our drinks and wine were also delicious. I can't wait to have another reason to celebrate so we can go back."

  • "Food and waiter were both outstanding. Staff always refilling ice water and tea...very appreciated on a hot day. Enjoyed complimentary appetizers and desserts. Even had a knife slide into my puree in my plate. The waiter replaced the knife with a clean one...very professional. My wife and I felt we were treated like Royalty."

And dessert...creme brulee...wow!"

  • "Not to take too much from the experience of the meal, but the views may have distracted our palates enough to keep us from fully engaging in, or being critical about the food. My wife & I cautiously ordered seafood dishes and thankfully without regret - my wife's scallops were done just right; my Atlantic Char was slightly overdone on one side. The service was on par to our expectations of such a restaurant."

  • "I recently visited DPOV and found it to be amazing. I was celebrating my six year anniversary and the staff was more than accommodating. I was very surprised at how well they worked with me to get every detail perfect that night. The chef even catered to my vegetarian diet and whipped up a fantastic dish. It was obviously a bit pricy, but the quality of food and service highly reflected that. Overall, I loved the experience and will be back again!"

There is a walk out balcony with a south facing view of the city and the mountain at dinner we had a window table to watch the sunset on the mountain. Then the city lights became the attraction after dark. Service was great and the food presentation 5 star."

  • "This is the most spectacular views of phoenix in a setting which is amazingly beautiful. The most enjoyable part of this place aside from the food which is beyond wonderful is the service . The people that are there to take care of you and your experience with them are truly a gift. You can also enjoy drinks and appetizers before dinner out on their patio, best to arrive in time to see the sunset and if you are lucky enough you will have a moonlit sky to accompany a wonderful evening, this is one place not to pass up, so go enjoy!"

  • "The total package: the artistic quality of the the food, the ambiance, and the fine service make this hilltop restaurant a step above the rest. The brunches are excellent, but we tried dinner for a change, and the chef must be very good, because the quality of the cooking was quite a surprise. When brunch is offered, the pastries are outrageous. There is a patio for dining outside, with a beautiful hilltop view."

  • "We tend to frequent a Different Pointe of View for special occasions. This time it was our 22nd wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" from every staff member we engaged with. The location is fabulous and there is no better place to watch the sun set over Phoenix. The food was amazing and we were treated with a chef's special that is a hometown Maryland specialty. We just happened to hit it on the right night. From wine to dessert, everything was top notch."
