Different Pointe of View
Memorable mealsEvery appetizer and entree was delectable. Exceptional quality and ambiance.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Place to spend your AnniversaryA Different Point of View was wonderful. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The wine list was divine and the view is with out words. I would recommend this place to anyone who appreciates a fabulous dining experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Surprise Dash of HumorMy husband and I committed to trying a rare, expensive restaurant on each anniversary. This year, we were led to A Different Pointe of View. Everything was special and delicious, just as one would hope for a celebratory occasion. A welcome surprise was the service provided by Luis. He gave the right amount of suggestions for courses, wine and timing - all with a sense of humor one would not expect from such a fine restaurant. We shared the Short Ribs Ravioli and Steamed Cedar Creek Clams as 2 courses. My husband savored the Coffee Brown Sugar Seared Pork Tenderloin, while I especially enjoyed Luis's suggestion of Grilled Cedar River Marinated Hanger Steak. My one complaint: the clam broth was underseasoned. Seems like small potatoes to me.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an ideal choice ifThis is an ideal choice if you want both excellent food and stunning views of the valley. It's sure to impress a date or a client. DPofV deserves each of their foodie awards.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimerThe restaurant is a bit pricey but if you overlook the price an just enjoy the ambiance and the view especially during the sunset hours, then you will enjoy your overall experience. I do not recommend bringing your kids.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary CelebrationWe went here for the view but I must say if you go here... a must have off the menu is the Lobster Bisque. Unbelievable! And it's not even located on one of the coasts!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMom in town, very impressedWhen my fiance and I first dined here in April, all we could think was how this would be the perfect spot for a special dinner out when my mom comes to town in May. My parents still live in Detroit, and after 5 yrs of living in the valley, and yearly visits to places that I was sure would "woo them in to moving here," I think we may have nailed it. All she kept saying was how much my dad would have loved to see the view, and how it would surely be a game changer. We started out with 2 salads and a side of gnocchi to share. Then she had the pork tenderloin, I had the scallops and my fiance tried the chef special veal. All were wonderful. Again, the desserts were the most lacking. Over all, we are lucky to be locals and have this place nearby6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't eaten at this restaurantWe hadn't eaten at this restaurant for several years. We decided to try it again for a special birthday celebration dinner for my Mom (this was a favorite for my Mom & Dad when Etienne ran the restaurant). I had timed the reservation so we would see the sunset. Unfortunately our table was not ready when we arrived so we missed the sunset!! Food was good. We felt a little rushed by our waiter who was standing by and seemed anxious to go home. The restaurant is beautiful and will try it again at a later date. (The view is beckoning.)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeGreat view, great food, very romantic, great service!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing View....!My wife and I really enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurant. The food was really flavorful, good portions, excellent wait staff and of course the view of the city was beautiful!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable comfort foodEating at Beckett's Table is a joy, the dishes are balanced and seasoned well.

Of course the view is fabulous too.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial NightThe restaurant has always been special to me but the attention and service tonight was to die for. Had a seat request and flowers being delivered not only was everything as I wished but I was contacted by staff a few hours before to tell me everything was a go and how it was going to be done. A night to be remembered. Recommend highly.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dinner experienceOutstanding dinner experience - the food, the service, the view - an entirely enjoyable package!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrationWe were celebrating my grandson's graduation and after mentioning the occassion to the hostess the rest of the staff quickly pickup the note and each congratulated him on the accomplishment.

It was a very nice surprise for him.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience!My husband and I dined here on 5/23/13 for our anniversary. It also happened to be Phoenix Restaurant week which was a nice surprise. We we both able to choose between various appetizers, main entrees and desserts that were being showed from their menu for a$39 each. We also ordered the scallop appetizer which was by far our favorite part of the meal. The food was fresh, flavorful and proportioned for a fine dining restaurant. As an added touch, they put chocolate pieces reading "Happy Anniversary" on our dessert AND brought my husband a glass of champagne and me a glass of sparkling cider (I'm pregnant). I thought that this was super thoughtful. If we are every in Phoenix again, we will definitely return! Yum!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful, Quality and DifferentThe drive and view alone is worth it. The Lobster Bisque, Bread and Pesto, Fillet , Shrimp and Trout are amazing too. Portions are enough, but not so much that you have ridiculous amounts of leftovers. Quality is higher than the price, which is rare these days.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious dinnerHaven't been here for years. Decided to go with friends during AZ Restaurant Week. Everything was great. Awesome food & service and a wonderful view.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Summer specials killer viewAwesome food, service, and view.

The brunch easily matches the view in its beauty and variety. All the standard
Brueakfast items are there. The savory dishes were varied and expertly prepared. Prime rib, lamb chops, pork roast, game hen, and the best short rib I think I have ever eaten.

The food was spectacular.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMsuperb viewsThe location is fantastic, pretty central in metro phoenix and the views over the valley are spectacular, both when dining indoors or outdoors. (lovely and multiple patios). The food is ok, nothing special, particularly for the high price.... I guess you pay for the excellent vistas rather than fine cuisine. Overall, it offers a great outdoor dining experience, especially at sunset!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Romantic SpotTook my Girlfriend to dinner here and we had a wonderful experience. Staff was friendly and helpful and the food was outstanding.
