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

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "We picked the place to celebrate our anniversary and found a real gem. We got there early and had drinks in the room below the restaurant. 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!"

  • "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."

  • "I have been to Different Pointe of View on a few occasions, it is my "go to" restaurant for the beautiful sunsets, when I have friends in town. That being said, there are other restaurants I have tried that have beautiful sunset views, with marginal food. Different Pointe of View has wonderful food, the fish was cooked perfectly, the veggies are always fresh and not overcooked and you MUST save room for the gorgeous and delightfully tasty desserts!"

  • "Different Point of View is always a winner. We go there for special occasions and with special friends because we know we will be very pleased with the experience. We have never hesitated to recommend this spot to our friends. The views are fantastic. Food is great, they will do what ever you want with the meals. My wife is vegan, and the Chef always comes up with a great solution to fit her requests. The wait staff is is tops. Louie was our Waiter and he was the best. Try it, you'll like it."

  • "The view was awesome. We love filets and lobster. Usually nice restaurants know how to cook a medium rare filet. These were overdone. We sent them back and received a pair that were closer but didn't want to ask a second time."

  • "The restaurant was warm and inviting. Breath taking views. Just stunning altogether. The wait staff was superb. Manager on duty was outstanding made sure we had the perfect table and very gracious. Food was elegant and tasty. I would go back for special occasions and to bring guests from out of town. It is about a 35 min drive from our home in Chandler, AZ. The drive down from the mountain at night is gorgeous with the road being lit with just the right amount of light."

  • "My husband & I first dined at Different Pointe Of View on our Honeymoon trip to Phoenix in 1989. It was such a breathtaking, magical setting that we definitely wanted to revisit it for our 25th anniversary in May. Sitting high atop a mountainside, it has fabulous views of North Mountain, with the entire Valley and city of Phoenix in the distance. The outdoor patio is a wonderful place for drinks while soaking up the sun(set) and vistas. Inside the restaurant is lovely with understated decor and a focus on the views; it is terraced, so even the tables toward the back are in luck. Service is very professional, and the food quite good. Hopefully we will make it back there for our 50th anniversary... and many times in between!"

  • "Our birthday dinner, Sat May 31 was the best by far! Ian was our server and he was very knowledgeable and treated us like we were his only guests. Ian took the time to explain ingredients, wine, and never seemed rushed. Ian brought Chef Anthony out to meet us which was thoughtful and cool. We discussed the amazing velvety lobster bisque, which Anthony mentioned is gluten free - yummy. Hubby had the smoked duck special which was very tasty and I had the usual hangar steak which is melt in your mouth goodness. We finished off with lovely cappuccinos and chocolate caramel cake. It was the best night we have experienced in all of the years we have been coming. "

  • "Our party of five (three from out of town) were thrilled with the ambiance - spectacular views, etc. While the food overall was excellent, some of us felt it did not live up to expectations: The Diver Scallops were disappointing to this reviewer - a little too highly seasoned. However, those who had steak were happy. "

  • "I had taken my girlfriend for her birthday. Our waiter was an older gentleman who never introduced his.name to us. Our food was also an hour wait. Very nice and romantic atmosphere but I think it's by far the worst service I've been to for a fine dining restaurant of this.caliber."
