    everything was wonderful. The service was impeccable. I let them know ahead that it was our anniversary, and we were provided a window table and no one was seated near us. It probably helped that it was a week night, but still thoughtful of them. Their service really brings their 'A' game and make you feel very comfortable. Our waiter John was perfect, he was always one step ahead of us, and chatted with us with the perfect balance to make it enjoyable conversation without so much that it interrupted our dinner. The food was very good and creative. I would love to go back again.

We decided to celebrate there on the day of our anniversary and it was a terrific experience!!! The staff was terrific and the food was great!! They threw in a sample appetizer plate on the house for our anniversary. To top if off we stayed in a junior suite on the 17th floor!!! They Hyatt and the Compass Room are awesome and I would suggest it to anyone!!

    We have been coming to the Compass for 20 years. The food is not as good as it used to be. My chicken was dry. I don't like the choice of side dishes any more. I don't like the choices of deserts anymore. I don't like the bread any more. We felt rushed to leave. Validating our parking was insufficient. We only saved 2.oo per person on the parking validation. The total experience cost $136.00 and we only enjoyed the view. I don't like that you have taken the big shrimp out of the bisque.

    The service was top notch and they have never disappointed my finicky palate with their delicious bisque. The chef offered a special this evening, which included three right-portion samples of three of their listed main course dishes. The special allowed me to experience three very well prepared dishes in one sitting. Bravo!

    Jerry was our Server and she was more than that. She made our 20th anniversary something special we will recall during those moments of reflection. She provided a quiet setting and a beautiful table near the glass, so we would be able to watch the city come to life at dusk. Our glasses were always full and our food was at the right temperature when it arrived at our table. She was always there, yet not a nuisance. She was distant, yet not transcendent. We truly enjoyed this dinner and have suggested she serve us at our 70th.

    I would expect, for the prices being charged, that the hostess and waitstaff would be dressed to the highest standards. It seemed like they dressed down to not seem too stuffy, but you're paying for excellence, and that includes attire. I would not recommend this if someone was looking for a 1st class dining experience.

    The food was wonderful and very filling. The corn bread is the best I have had in recent memory. The view of the city is great and provides a romantic setting. The only downside is that guests of the hotel bring their family (with small children) and are not dressed appropriately. It would be preferred to only have older children who know how to act appropriately and everyone dressed as business casual or better.

    Compass is definitely a restaurant you need to take out of town guests to. I recommend going at night as the glare from the sun gets a bit intense, but in the evening the view of the mountains and city lights is spectacular. The food is very delicious, one entree is enough to split between two people. The service was fantastic, it felt like we were being waited on hand and foot. Must try: the chocolate pudding pie!

If the options for food can change then I would come back with wife to celebrate another anniversary. Otherwise it was experience that I wouldn't want to do again. I'll settle for Taco Bell.

The experience was everything we had been led to believe it would be. The restaurant is known for its spectacular view but the food surpassed even that. The cost for four of us for dinner was a bit higher than we would normally pay; however, dollar for dollar- and bite for bite- it was well worth every penny.

    The only revolving restaurant in Phoenix, AZ. The view was amazing, though it would be better if the air was cleaner in town. The placards that were placed every two or three windowpanes give you something to look for while you wait for your food and can bring up some interesting conversations. Once the sun goes down, the romantic candlelit atmosphere really grabs hold. The lights around town are always a beautiful sight and the dimly lit restaurant makes it very easy to see out. I had a great time and would totally go again.

    The ambiance was wonderul and one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. My request for a window seat was accommodaed which was very nice. However, there were a few flaws: our reservation was for 7:00 PM and we didn't get seated until 8:15 PM so we were an hour late to our senior prom. We also found two insects crawling around our table which made the restaurant appear slighty grungy. I was happy to know that you could accommodate that I was allergic to dairy and offered a substitution, however, when the food came, my dish was incorrect. Thus, we were even later. The food's quality was indeed very good, when it had finally arrived.
